Like some other reviewers, I got a little sample in a magazine - it was way to dark but such a nice texture I couldn't resist buying in my shade (ivory) and its a great match. I find that it gives a really nice 'second skin' affect and has surprisingly good coverage. Its best to apply with finger tips kind of like Mac F+B and this way you can really smooth it and pat/press it into …Read more

Palettes - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea Kiss & Blush Cream Cheek & Lip Palette

4.0

Apr/22/2018

This palette looks quite lovely and has a range of colours. Everything blends well into the cheeks (I haven't tried for lips much, but one time used the dark shade for a lipstick alternative for a shoot and it was perfect). I do find that the staying power isn't as long as others - it is quite expensive so this might be a factor for some people - it has a really nice luxuriousness …Read more

Treatments (Face) - TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist

Apr/22/2018

I quite love this product for adding some dewiness - it has a richness that makes it worth the money. My only negative is that it breaks down some of my foundations (notably the Bobbi Brown stick, which to be fair is oil/wax based and this spray is water based) leaving the tops of my cheeks crackled in appearance at times - I wish I could use it over everything you know. Sometimes I find it …Read more

Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream Palette

I love this palette! I find that I use all of the shades at times for blush but tend to stick with the 3 lightest for regular use. I find its pretty easy to blend and decent staying power (especially if set with a powder blush). On occasion I use the red as a lip stain, its quite nice for that. I love the cheeky vibe of this product design too! My only negative would be the two on bottom left are …Read more

BB Cream - Smashbox - Camera Ready BB WATER Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I must say I was pretty disappointed with this one, I was told that it would have that nice 'second-skin' finish because of the thin consistency but I find that it leaves tiny balls of foundation/texture on my skin (whether I'm wearing primer/moisturizer or bare skin). It makes my combo skin flakey in spots. Meh coverage. meh everything.

I love that this product comes in fair shades for me and it does leave a nice satin finish and quite nice medium coverage for a thinner consistency fdtn. I will say I was a touch disappointed given the hype and PRICE that it wasn't more smooth/invisible/skin-like - when I consider the Bourjois Healthy Mix gel serum is awesome and costs about half and I get the result I'm looking for …Read more

Love this with the Healthy mix Gel Serum foundation, this highlighter is a lot nicer than the benefit high beam in my opinion (the coppery bronze version would be amazing on darker gals but def for nighttime because its crazy metallic).

Apr/22/2018

I am really happy with this product, it is like my all time fave Maybelline BB cream, but it noticeably has more pigment and it lasts longer! It is a creamy gel serum (more creamy than MAC F+B, which I also love but can be kind of 'sticky') and it smooths over pores very well and leaves a 'second skin' finish which is a must for me. It doesn't flake, cake or transfer onto …Read more

Hair Color - Color Oops - Regular Strength Hair Color Remover

Dec/01/2016

I used this product to help strip out my permanent black hair dye. I found that it was pretty effective, although it did not strip out all of the colour - I went from a soft black to a very dark brown/black with some reddish orange tones that needed to be toned with an ashy semi-permanent colour. With the regrowth that I have there is still a pretty bad line where my natural colour ends and the …Read more

Quick Take: great quad for travel, fair version great shades for extremely fair skin, very drying on combo/dry skin

I am very fair with combination/dry skin so I was thrilled to see MUFE Pro Sculpting palette came in a version light enough for me!

Overall I quite like all of the shades for my very fair skin with neutral undertones, the shimmery …
