My HG foundation - I have a backup of this in case I run out. I have this in shade 04 - Cream Chamois, and am around NC30 in MAC colours.

My skin is really sensitive (rosacea), so most makeup and skin care products either break me out or cause my cheeks to flare with a painful red rash. This did neither.

A little goes a long way with this - the coverage is quite good …

Tugged at my eyelids when I applied it, no colour payoff. I had to apply three to four times to get the colour to show up... not good when the product is so hard that it actually hurts to apply it. I like the idea of a pencil that I don't have to sharpen, but this isn't it for me.

Powder - Laura Mercier - Foundation Powder

I tried this on a recommendation from a friend. It does not irritate my sensitive skin (rosacea) the way that many products do. It gives medium coverage with a matte finish. I do not find that it controls oil well - using a primer helps (but I do have super oily skin). My skintone is about NC30 and I tried #2 in this. My colleagues asked me what I was doing, that my face looked really healthy and …Read more

I've just about finished my first bottle of this foundation. It's a nice liquid foundation with medium coverage and doesn't irritate my extremely sensitive skin or make me break out. I put this on (my colour is W4) and it just seems to blend in and look like skin and not like a mask. This foundation covers redness well but pimples will need a concealer (I have not tried the …Read more

Eye Shadow - Annabelle - Holy Smoke Trio

This set contains a shimmery lilac, a shimmery taupe, and a shimmery bone colour. When I used this trio dry, I noticed very little colour payoff from the lilac colour, but used wet, the colour payoff is much better. The three colours go together very well for a polished, professional look that is flattering on my brown eyes.

Mascara - NYC New York Color - Lengthening Mascara

This mascara lengthens my eyelashes while still giving a "natural" look, and doesn't irritate my eyes. However, it does smear a little undereye (I do have oily skin though). The cost is extremely affordable (around $3 CAD), so if you don't have oily skin and want a "natural" look for your lashes, maybe give this one a …Read more

This mascara lengthened somewhat and did not sting my eyes, and I really liked the no-clump rubber brush, but it left tons of flakes under my eyes. Will not be repurchasing.
