Jun/20/2011

When I first tried this product - having purchased it from ASOS for considerably less than it was priced on the Two Faced websites and various sites I checked - I wasn't convinced that it was worthy of all the positive reviews. I can now safely say my opinion has been revised having worn it for a day.


I have very light skin, and it is is often a struggle to find foundations …

I've so far only used this as a mattifying powder over my Max Factor pan stik (another buy I've just tried, and been impressed by!) and it's really good.

I have 010 Transparent and the colour is pale enough for me (NW15-20). Catrice has always impressed me with their pressed powders (I also own their pressed mineral compact and rate it highly) and this product is no …

I can't rave enough about this product!

It cost me about €6, maybe less, and it has consistently performed well. I own the shade 010 Light Beige, which is a good match for my NW15/20 skin. It blends very well and sets nicely with powder - which it unfortunately does need in order to stay on my combination skin, despite being a 'matt' foundation.


I have …

I also love this brush! I've been looking for a dupe for MAC's 187 brush for ages, and this is definitely it - it gives a smooth, airbrushed coverage with liquid foundation, buffs in cream foundation nicely, and applies powder very well. I'd definitely buy it again!


The price is also much better than MAC's - I bought mine on eBay on £5! Well worth it.

While I agree with reviews that this product must be applied to exfoliated skin (because it really does show up dry patches very obviously) I don't agree that it is not very blendable - it blends in well and has a creamy consistency that's easy to work with (I love the sponge included with the foundation, but recommend applying with fingers and then going over the make up when on the …Read more

I don't know whether it's just my skin at this time of year or what, but this foundation is terrible on me right now!


I bought it because I wanted the 'airbrush satin finish' and it's only disappointed me so far. I haven't got oily skin, but this foundation has made my skin extremely oily while wearing it the past two days - after a couple of hours …

I love this shade for autumn! It's a deep emerald kind of tone, and I've been wearing it for about a week and it hasn't chipped, just faded a little from the tip :)

Highly recommended, especially with deep emerald, smokey eyeshadow to match!

I would agree that this isn't for oily skin...I haven't got particularly oily skin though, so it's the perfect creamy consistancy for me :)

This was one of the first foundations I ever had, but also one of the best. It makes my fair skin look creamy and porcelain, a virtue that can't be disputed in my book! It blends incredibly easily and didn't oxidise on my …

I can definitely see what people mean when they refer to the scent of this product-it is quite a chemically, vaguely orange smell that luckily doesn't linger on the face (if it did I wouldn't be able to bear it)


The product itself I find is too orange toned to use as a spot concealer-I have it in ivory and while it's ok for under the eyes and along the jawbone …
