Love this product!!

This is a great concealer I usually use the shade Tan, but sometimes use a touch of the medium shade to brighten the undereye a tad bit more. I'm a NC45-50 for reference.

I can see why this is becoming a cult favorite, the blending of it is so easy and no matter how much you put on it blends seamlessly. I use to use the NARS radiant creamy concealer …

This is really great foundation....

I decided to buy this foundation after seeing NikkieTutorials rave about it in mostly all of her videos and I loved the finish it gave her so I decided to give it a try,

The price is steep but it's so worth it, the best part of this foundation is the finish, usually cream foundations may tend to give a cakey mask like finish but this …

Okay verdict is in:

I've been hearing about this foundation from Wayne Goss on YouTube he literally raves about it every time when mentioned, and the reviews have been 85% positive so I had to try it. I got a couple of days ago and at first application I was blown away so let me break it down,

Texture: The foundation is wax like so it can be hard to come out almost like …

I got a sample of this at Sephora, I wanted to try it before I actually by it. I don't think I have ever seen an overwhelming consensus on a foundation they I have seen everyone rave about this so I was beyond curious. And I must say I totally get it!

Coverage: I would say medium definitely can be built up I don't have the best skin so I was shocked that a tad bit of this …

Whoever said this powder is like a Instagram Filter wasn't lying.

First off I was debating on getting this or the Ben Nye Banana Powder, I have never tried the Ben Nye Powder but I don't like the way it looks on Women of color in pics, I am a NC 45-50 in Mac, Cadiz in Nars Sheer Glow , sometimes it can be a little too yellow in photos which I hate So I decided to get this and …

This product has to be one of the best kept secrets Mac has. This product should be way more popular than it is. I love this highlighter, I have plenty of highlighters but I always go back to this one, it very pigmented and a little goes a long way, I have had this for almost two years mind you guys it also spilled and one point and I still have enough for two more years and its only $22 which is …Read more

Recently, I have been breaking out more than usual, I guess it was stress. My mom who is all about natural found out about this mask and …Read more

I am quite surprised by this product I just purchased it the other day. First off their is nothing "sheer" about this foundation not to say it is a bad thing at least for me. I hate to admit but I have bad skin I have a lot of blemishes so I need a good coverage. Anyways I put this on with my fingers since the Sephora I went to did not carry the beauty blender
:(. And it …
