Liquid - The Body Shop - Fresh Nude Foundation

May/14/2017

I have recently switched to cruelty free and wanted a foundation with less junk in it. According to The Body Shop, they don't make an ultra long wearing foundation or matte formula because they need a lot of additives to get it to perform that way. I don't know how true that is, but it's true that I've personally never found a naturally based foundation that dries matte or …Read more

I really find this so average. I bought it because it had great reviews on youtube but I hardly ever reach for it. I have a neutral undertone and this is very, very yellow. Totally workable but not a very natural match for me. Unfortunately, all the shades are very yellow based which is a bit limiting.

My friend and I purchased this together, and I think we both have pretty similar …

I love this concealer. It is my favourite one I own right now. The coverage is excellent, doesn't look cakey and really does look radiant on the skin. Less is absolutely more with this and I tend to wipe the wand on the back of my hand before applying it with a fluffy concealer brush. Would give five lippies, but it does crease under my eyes a little (everything does to some degree, though) …Read more

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

This fragrance baffles me. It reminds of the awful Britney Spears fragrance I got for my 16th birthday yet people from their 20s-40s seem to be all over this. It smells so sickly sweet and basic. It doesn't feel like this fragrance is well thought out or worth the high price tag. An explosion of various flowers is so overwhelming. I like my fragrances to be a beautiful blend of various …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

I work at a pharmacy in the cosmetics end and almost everyone, whether they work at the EL counter or not, wears Double Wear. Some of them look so good in it and that's fantastic, but it just doesn't cut it for me.

The packaging is so stupid. I don't want an expensive foundation that I have to pour from a heavy glass bottle, so that either not enough comes out, or too …

Foundations - Elizabeth Arden - Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 PA++

I used to wear Estee Lauder's Double Wear, but I really didn't get the hype at all. I find this is an ideal replacement. This can be a medium to full coverage product, covers my acne scars on my chin with no problem at all, so much so that I don't need concealer there.

It's a 24 hour foundation, but my T-zone can be pretty oily. In the colder months this is …

I really like this foundation. I think it looks beautiful, healthy and has a great dewy look and satin finish. People always compliment my skin when I wear this out.

The oil control isn't great. In the winter I can get away with powdering just the once and have it last well throughout the day, but during humid weather it needs a lot of powder support. That's fine, I was …
