This has become one of my favourite cleansers and I keep returning to it again and again. I have combo skin that is partially oily and partially sensitive and dry. This cleanser does the job of making my skin feel clean but does not dry it out. It has a milky, runny texture, a very mild scent and can be used both with and without water. I use it with water and pair it with a very mild floral …Read more

This is the best BB cream I have tried so far. It produces a very natural result and does a good job of getting rid of minor imperfections (slight redness) and adds more lumniousity. In summer I've used this instead of a regular daycream and it seems to do a good job at moisturizing. I like the fact that it has SPF50 for protection although it might be a bit overkill in wintertime (in …Read more

I had high hopes for this matte bronzer with it's cute Benefit signature packaging. I tend to prefer matte bronzers for a more natural look and a appreciate the fact that this bronzer does not have any orange hues. Still this doesn't do it for me, it just doesn't go on as smoothly as I'd like it too. Even with my otherwise so failsafe ultra-soft bronzing brush and a very light …Read more

I wanted to get a more peachy coral blush and this seemed like a nice shade. Once applied it turns out, although pretty buildable, it's a tad bit too dark for my pale skin. The biggest issues I have with this though is the packaging. The brush that comes integrated in the container is too small and basically useless, the opening is too narrow for my ordinary blush brush and I constantly end …Read more

This foundation does seem to have a lot going for it - liquid mineral makeup with spf in a hygienic glass bottle with pump. It's runny and easy to use, light to medium coverage and some nice color matches for my pale skin. When I first apply this I always sense that it stays on top of my skin for quite some time, thus looking rather heavy, after a while it creates a natural look, not very …Read more

I don't get spots very often and when I get them they are usually small and easy to deal with. So I don't want to spend tons of money on clearing products but aim for cheaper solutions with antiseptic properties. There are quite a few of them out there and they seem to be pretty similar. Rapid Clear Treatment is a clear gel that locally treats the breakout and makes it heal quicker. It …Read more

Oct/17/2009

I bought this when I needed a light, basic moisturizer that didn't make my combo skin shiny and oily but wouldn't dry it out either. The creme comes in a hygenic tube and has runny texture. Sinks in to skin quickly and doesn't leave a film on my face. The scent is a quite strong herbal, "green", one that might annoy people who are sensitive to fragrances, but it's …Read more

This is the first time I've bought a brush for appying foundation. I didn't see the point before but one of my friends (who always has flawless skin) convinced me that a good foundation brush is the secret. This is a flat brush that I use for applyin any liquid foundation. It does take a little more work then dabbing it on with your fingers or a sponge and you have to be careful with …Read more

I was looking for a nice everyday wear palette when this caught my eye. Five matte shadows ranging from eggshell white to nude to greige. It does look tempting in the package, like a perfect can do no wrong combo. Sadly, when applied these colors tend to look pretty dull. I don't know if it's the complete lack of any iridescence or even the subtlest of shine but it just does not make …Read more

Sep/05/2009

I bought this in my quest to find my HG pressed powder after hearing good things about it. I prefer using loose powder when I do my makup but want a good mattifying pressed one for my combo skin to combat shine and touch up thoughout the day. What I'm looking for is basically I powder that looks like I have nothing one while it keeps my face shine-free and fabulous. This is pretty good at …Read more
