Loose Powders - Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder

3.0

Oct/18/2017

Pros: Blurs out uneven skin texture nicely. Mattes and sets foundation.

Cons: Does not hold oil at bay for long. Despite putting this on, my foundations would still get oily 3 or 4 hours in. After my skin gets oily all the initial blurring/matte effect this powder had are all gone.

(Also I can never bake with this powder without feeling extremely guilty because of how …

Powder - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Duo Mat Powder foundation Powder

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2017

Pros: Offers high coverage for a powder foundation. Of course, as a powder this still doesn't mean it gives high coverage in the way that a liquid foundation would, but for a powder, it's probably one of the highest coverages you're going to get.

Cons: Does not look flattering. It looks very powdery and cakey, even when applied light-handedly. It's like I can …

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

This is great for under eyes, not that great for covering acne.

Coverage: Medium. It doesn't really cover acne and redness that well partially because it blends out so much that its hard to build up coverage.

Consistency: True to its name, very creamy and incredibly easy to blend. Looks very natural and doesn't cake up at all, which is why its ideal for under eye …

Concealers - REVLON - Revlon PhotoReady Stick Concealer

3.0

Oct/18/2017

Coverage: Average at best. It doesn't really cover acne and red areas as well as I'd like.It covers moderately but not really the high coverage you would expect from a great concealer. You can still see redness peeking out. If you try to keep layering it up, it can get cakey.

Consistency: Kind of on the dry side. It's still very blendable, but not perfectly creamy such …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2017

Finish - Even though it has "luminous" in its name, I found the finish was more matte than dewy. Other than that, I didn't find the finish particularly outstanding. It didn't blur pores or make me look flawless, it just evened out skin tone and covered acne to some extent.

Coverage - Medium. Does not completely cover severe acne scars or discoloration. Evens out …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

I just don't see the point of this. It would really only look nice on someone who has very minor skin imperfections and has normal skin-type.

it gave very sheer coverage which is to be expected I suppose, as a tinted moisturier. But also the finish was just not great. It looked very oily on initial application and even though my skin isn't particularly oily, I became a …

Liquid - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

4.0

Oct/18/2017

Finish - Natural. Not too dewy, not too matte. Incredibly natural. I've been told it looks like a second skin. Which I guess makes sense considering its name. It lives up to its reputation!

Coverage - Light-medium. Definitely a very light-weight foundation. It is buildable to medium without looking cakey at all but if you have deep discoloration and bad acne, this isn't …

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

4.0

Oct/18/2017

Finish - Dewy. Gives a very beautiful dewy and healthy glow. Also does a good job at covering pores to make your face seem flawless.

Coverage- Light-Medium. Buildable without getting cakey, but does not completely cover acne/scarring to be considered high coverage.

Staying Power- Average. I was a little less than impressed with the staying power which is why it is not …

BB Cream - Skin79 - Super+ Beblesh Balm BB Triple Function Hot Pink SPF25/PA++

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2017

Coverage- Medium. Covers acne and scarring moderately well. Evens out skin-tone. The consistency of the BB cream is definitely on the thicker/heavier side so it really feels like I'm wearing something on my skin.

Finish- Dewy/natural

Staying Power- Poor. Not so great on oil control. My face (which is not especially oily) becomes oily due to this product after about 3-4 …

Foundations - IOPE - IOPE AIR CUSHION XP SFP50+/PA+++

Oct/18/2017

I tried this product in C23 which is supposed to have a matte finish with higher coverage.

Finish - Matte. Not really in a good way either. It's just a drying sort of matte finish which is not flattering and makes pores more obvious. I have combination skin that is oily in the t-zone and leans toward dry everywhere else. Definitely stay away from this product if you have dry skin …
