Excellent light coverage and moisturiser. I have decent skin (no breakouts since accutane) with some blotchy redness and find this is just the right amount of everyday coverage.

PRO: applies beautifully with a buffing brush and gives me light-medium coverage that is very natural and pretty looking. it has a glow but is not shinny. I really like the texture and amount of moisture (I am …

Polishes - Essie - Gel Couture Color (All Colors)

The closest thing to a lamp-cured gel manicure I have found, and does a lot less damage to my nails. I will likely purchase more colours. I did not use a base coat, only the colour and top coat.

PRO: For me, lasts significantly better than regular nailpolish (1 week with some tip wear). I really like the colour (Sew Me), the top coat is extremely glossy, the brush makes applying neatly …

Love this! Perfect medium-full natural coverage that last all day. I do find the shades run lighter than their other ranges - in this I am a NW15, whereas normally I use NW13.
The good: love the coverage which is medium that you can build to full. The finish looks quite natural and not at all cakey. It lasts very well, easily through my 12 hour days. I lovw the packaging which is very …

Did not like this at all!
The good: the formula is ok - if used with an alternative brush
The bad: I hate the brush! I "stabbed" my eyes with it trying to get right to the root of my lashes and found that it really didn't coat very well, or comb our clumps. The brush does not assist in getting any volume, length or separation.

Big fan of this one! I use it morning and night to keep my skin tone even and glowing.
The Good: love the squeezy tube packaging. How's on really well, layers nicely with the 2% bha lotion at night and my moisturising sunscreen in the morning. Has absolutely helped even out my skin tone and fade hyperpigmentation from old acne, also makes my skin feel smoother and plumper
The bad: …

Expensive but totall worth it.
The good: for my super super pale pinky skin the light rosy tones work really well and don't look harsh. I have used this pretty much every day in the 6 months I've had it. For work I can just do a wash of the ligher shades, for evening a smokey look with the darker ones. The colours are very pigmented and for the most part smooth.
The Bad: dust …

This is an amazing lil combo. I have fair.
The GOOD: so multitasking! In addition to fufilling the stated duties of highlighting, contouring and blushing, it also works for eveshadow and brow-filler when traveling. The contour colour is good - not too dark for my (lighter than NC15) skin.The highlighter is standard by nice, and the blush colour is lovely. Similar to Nars Orgasm, but …

My only real complaint is the smell! It tingled a little, but wasn't painful or any worse than what I experience at the hairdressers. I used light copper brown.
The Good: Application was super easy (I always use my fingers for hair dye anyways), I liked the tub thing and shaking it. The condition did a nice job of softening up my hair. I'm pleased with the colour.
The Bad: the …

I love this so bad.
The GOOD: the colour is amazing! On my Nc10ish skin it's a bright orange toned red. It smells delicious and the packaging is classy. I find it really long lasting and can use it as either a stain or full lip colour.

The BAD: I find it does transfer more than I like and it is a little drying if worn constantly.

Overall it is expensive, but so …

I got this in one of those beauty boxes. The colour is Shoot the Moon
The GOOD: the colour is very pretty, completely opaque and even in two coats. Goes on very smoothly and I love the brush. Drys fast

The BAD: It doesn't wear the best - I feel like I get top wear a little faster than I'm used to.

Overall I'm not sure if it's worth it. My beloved …
