The color isn't cool enough to use as a contour, but I did like this as a transition/crease shade for the eyes. I had both Deep and Deep Tan, but had to give both away because it made me break out. It's probably the Ethylhexyl palmitate, which is highly comedogenic.

Foundations - REVLON - PhotoReady Liquid Foundation

Aug/02/2015

Broke me out in places I don't normally get pimples! I use makeup remover and double cleanse so I know I was cleaning my face properly every evening. After two days of using this I now have three large, angry, almost boil-like pimples. The pump bottle was the only nice thing about this foundation. The coverage was sheer, and did not last. I used 004 Nude for my NC30 skin.

UPDATE: …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush

After owning this brush for a year, I've decided that I don't very much like it. The bristles prick my face and the whole head of the brush feels coarse against my skin. It's like the roughness of a konjac sponge. I much prefer the RT buffing brush, or the velvety smooth Sephora #56 brush, or even th ELF flat top powder brush.

I will say though that I like it for a …

I like this mask and have already repurchased my second box. Brightens noticeably, smoothens and calms, with effects lasting from evening until the next morning. RP.

Masks - My Beauty Diary - Brightening & Clarifying Tightening Pores Mask - Apple

Jul/09/2015

I was expecting this to be a good match for my oily skin and large pores, but this did not really do anything for me. Yes, it smells heavenly, like apple cider, yum. But brightening effect was minimal and short lived (have had better results with other masks from MBD and BeautyMate), and it was almost like my nose blackheads looked more prominent after use. I do not notice any oil control effect …Read more

Concealers - Max Factor - Mastertouch Under-Eye Concealer

Dec/04/2014

Terrible. Too sheer to really cover any under eye circles, settles into fine lines. On blemishes it covers well at first (Beige is slightly grayish but my match for NC30) BUT wears off easily. I tried to use it up as a foundation but I think it broke me out, probably because the sponge tip is unhygienic. I prefer the Rimmel Match Perfection for under eyes, and the Maybelline Fit Me concealers for …Read more

Liquid - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

My HG foundation for oily skin. I am a warm-toned fair-medium and I mix shades 100 Ivory (good color match but a bit grayish) and 081 Fair Ivory (a little too light but suits me very well with its pale yellow tone).

I apply this over sunscreen (Neutrogena or La Roche Posay) and this is why I have not had any problems with caking. I'm surprised at how a little goes a long way. A …

I love the shade Adorable - a pale cool pink that works well with my coloring (NC30). I love it for spring, especially. A YouTube blogger compared it to MAC Well Dressed.

Staying power isn't that good, maybe 3 hours, but it's very cheap (20AED), I would just repurchase.

EDIT: Got another shade: #60 Life's A Cherry. Reminds me of Cargo's Laguna …

I unreservedly give this 5 lippies. Passes the can-kiss-boyfriend-and-not-end-up-having-both-of-us-look-like-clowns test with flying colors. (Yes it's a real test. It's all very scientific.) No strong taste, minimal transfer, and the remaining stain was still going strong even after a greasy sandwich and cup of coffee.

Half the price of the Revlon balm stains. I have 3 shades …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish - Pink Blush

Aug/01/2014

Cool-toned pastel pink, does not suit me at all (warm toned, NC30) as a lipstick, but this is a great blush! This has a lilac/lavender undertone to it that brightens my yellow-toned skin. I dab it on my cheeks and blend out, then set with translucent powder. It lasts about 3-4 hours on my oily-combo skin.

As comparison, it is a paler pink than my NYX cream blush in Glow. Glow is more …
