I have oily skin and am NC37 skin tone and bought BD50 in this foundation. And to note I own a lot of foundation. Particularly high end. I have tried every foundation no exaggeration.
I find this applies best with a beauty blender. One pump is enough and I have to work fast. I can then go in and build up on areas if I have a break out.
This is not the prettiest foundation at first. It …

I've received three generous samples which have definately made me decide whether to purchase the full size. Skin type and background first because I think it's relative to my review.
I have oily skin. Can be sensitive with some redness. Nothing extreme but visible for sure. I am a big skin care fanatic. I will try most things and I use retinol and acid toners so I can …

I have oily combo skin and I can safely say this saves my foundation longevity no matter what foundation I use. Big call I know but I'm on my fourth bottle and use it daily under my foundation.
This has a slight silicone feel but glides over the skin giving it a slight blur. Foundation applies much more evenly with this underneath.
But the gold is the longevity! Without this …

Well I hate to be on the side of dislikers on this one because this was not cheap!
Finally took the plunge and dished out on this with high hopes and expectations.
Firstly I purchased mine in Australia where we don't have as broad of a shade range available. I'm NC30ish and decided on beige as it was the darkest available! Not cool La Mer AUS!
I'm olive undertone …

I purchased shade medium. I'm about NC30-35. The shade is probably a tad too light but can work once bronzer is applied. Consistency is creamy but not thick. The smell is citrusy in a washing detergent way which I wasn't fond of. It didn't smell like a natural citrus and I'm not usually sensitive to fragrance but this was Off putting.
I have oily combo skin and most …

First BB cream I've ever liked. I'm usually a medium coverage foundation kinda girl but I saw a great review of this and got sucked in. I bought it online and didn't get to select which colour I could get so I think I got the medium to deep? Suits my NC30 skin beautifully. Not too pink or orange just a very neutralizing beige. Cancels out redness, smooths over pores and feels and …Read more

Bought this on a whim because I saw Sam from pixiwoo use it and said it looked amazing close up. I'm not a fan of foundation looking foundation and serum based foundations usually look the most natural I find.
I use shade 03 and I'm an NC30ish. Combo skin. The next shade up was a massive jump. This definately has a yellow/golden undertone which suits my skin perfect. Guerlain …

I have oily combo skin and got a massive sample of this after watching Tati YouTuber test it out with significant results.
Being a primer I expect almost instant results. Feels like a gel moisturizing formula and leaves the skin tacky. Gold flakes disappear. Skins tone is evened out, fine expression lines on forehead were "filled" in and less noticeable and pore size seemed to …

I'm a combo skin with shade Nc30ish. I wear shade 045 sable beige. Not sure whether in the US or EU this is different. It's a warm tone medium which suits my olive complexion ok.
This applies relatively easily. One pump is enough on a good skin day. I can build up some areas with more if I have a spot but if I apply too much it cakes. The finish is a Demi matte. Natural. Does …

I'm a combo skin type so I hope this helps fellow combo skin types! I have NC30ish colouring and I got this is 6.25 and it is about a shade or two too light. When I dropped it on my hand it seemed ok but then it lightens as you spread it.
Now I know this says glow and some may say what was I thinking with combo skin but I've seen rave reviews of some really reliable fave youtubers …
