I am never buying another BB cream. I am set for life with this one. It's incredible. Hooooly crap. Applies nicely, blurs pores, actually does good things for your skin, has good UV protection, smells nice, moisturising but not oily, and the colour...my god, the colour actually matches my olive skin. Oh thank you, Korea. No more orange BB creams for me.
And it doesn't cost an arm …

Polishes - RIMMEL - I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish - Black Cherries

3.0

It really is the colour of black cherries. Dark reddish purple, like a real plum (the purple kind, not the magenta kind). It sparkles a little under light, and looks creme otherwise. Has the look of dark polish but you can still tell it's purple. It can be a little patchy, so you need two thick coats to really get it opaque. I might buy again if I couldn't find another purple with this …Read more

Sadly, this looks like crap on my skin. Back to Revlon ColorStay Stay Natural. I bought this in Buff, which is the same colour I buy in the Colorstay liquid foundation, and the colour is more or less the same, perhaps a little lighter. It has a little more whipped texture but is easy to apply.

Sadly it clings to my dry spots and collects on blemishes and kind of just makes me look dry …

I have a version of this that's not labelled "Matte", but the formula is pretty matte, so I'm putting this review here.
I have this in Light. Sadly, Light is still too dark for me most of the year. I can only use this in summer really.
That's the only downside, because I love this BB cream otherwise: Good coverage, covers redness, really blurs pores and …

Overall, not a very good BB cream. I have this in 02 light, which is a pinker/cooler colour than 01 fair.
Pros: 1. Colour isn't as orange/yellow as other drugstore BB creams; 2. Smells good, not too strong.

Cons: 1. Colour is still too dark for light skin and too yellow for even a neutral undertone; 2. Coverage is very light; doesn't really cover redness much; 3. Coverage …

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Pore Filler

It's INSANE how well this works to fill pores. I have moderate-sized pores. When I put this on I literally could not believe how smooth and airbrushed my skin looked - in a good way. The texture out of the tube is very weird, but warm it up in your hands and spread it around and it's fine. It's kind of expensive but god, is it good.

Lip Liners - RIMMEL - Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner - Addiction

I must have a bad tube because the texture is...pretty crap. It drags, goes on thick and sticky, and when I try to apply lippy over it, the lipstick gets stuck and drags around the liner, and it all smudges and mixes in with the actual lipstick...I don't know what's going on. With lip liners, I like to colour in my entire lip and then either wear by itself or wear lippy over it. I …Read more

I want to love this lipstick, but really, it functions as a tinted lip balm and not a lipstick. Wear time is pretty meh - wears off if you eat/drink anything very quickly. It is very hydrating, however, and feels really nice on the lips. I've got this in shade 03 and it's a nice pink nude, with decent colour pay-off. I wouldn't recommend getting the darker shades, however - though …Read more

This stuff is great. I have 'dark brown' and it is certainly dark, which is good for my black (brown-black) hair. Leaving it on the recommended 20 minutes leaves me with borderline too-dark brows, which, by the second day, have lightened somewhat to a slightly warmer brown. The tint is supposed to last three days apparently, but even after five, the skin under my brow hairs is still …Read more

I am INTO this nail polish. It's a great nude for me since I have olive skin. It's definitely a brown-y, greyish nude, not at all pink (thank goodness, pink looks so crappy on me). Super polished and clean-looking, office appropriate but still cute and classy. Love.
Streaky/see-through on one coat, but two coats is opaque (I always do two anyway). No bubbles!
