This worked fine on my dry skin and looked great, but it oxidized so fast. This was the one time I didn't take the time to test out a foundation while buying in-store and I am never doing that again. When I swatched it, the shade looked perfect and I decided to just buy it since the store was busy and I didn't want to stand in the way of anyone. When I got home and put it on my face, by …Read more

In general, I love this foundation. It's great for my dry skin, gives acceptable coverage, and the finish is gorgeous. My only problem is that I'm considerably pale and the lightest shade is too dark for me to pull off even in the summer (I'm also not a fan of mixing products to get the right color). It's great but I can hardly ever use it because of the lack of fairer shades …Read more

I might return to this foundation in the summer, but it's not hydrating enough for winter use on my skin. It didn't flake on me or anything, but I did feel a lot of tightness in my forehead whenever I wore this. Overall it's a great foundation and the only other complaint I have is that the lightest shade was just a little too dark for me.

The coverage on this is great, and the color is spot on for me, but it's so bad for my dry skin. My face is normal/dry, but no matter how much i exfoliate or moisturize anywhere I put this concealer turns dry and patchy within a couple hours and looks like a mess. On top of that, since a little goes such a long way with this product, the pump definitely needs to be redesigned. It's so …Read more

I absolutely loved this foundation and the finish it gave my dry skin, but I had to return it. This was only because the lightest shade was too dark for me, and $50 is a lot for a foundation that doesn't even match my skin (the only MAC foundation I've used is studio sculpt in nc15 which was also too dark). I might look back into it during the summer months, but right now I'd …Read more

I don't have acne prone skin, but this broke me out. Not severely, but I definitely have new blemishes in places that are generally clear, and their appearance is lining up with when I decided to test this out. I've read a couple reviews from people with the same problem, but decided to give it a go because I typically have skin more on the clear side than anything. Other than the …Read more

Feb/04/2015

Lately I've been having problems with even my most moisturizing foundations leaving my skin dry and flaky (dry skin and winter are not a good combo). I usually use fix+ to finish my skincare routine, but today I tried using it to set my makeup instead of UD all nighter and I think I found my solution. My foundation's only been on four hours, and by now on most days I look like a dry …Read more

This foundation is absolutely wonderful for dry skin. That being said, make sure you've exfoliated before using it, because despite how moisturizing and dewy it is, I still saw preexisting dry patches emphasized. I'd say it's light to medium coverage, maybe full if you really layer it but it would probably start to feel heavy at that point. Other than that, the main negative for me …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Full Lash Bloom by lashblast

I find this good mainly for separating your lashes and giving them a little bit more thickness, but nothing past that. While I experienced 0 clumps, I also experienced 0 length or volume being added, which is personally what I look for in a mascara, which made it a little disappointing, but it was only $6 or $7, so not too much of a loss for me.

I got this because I'd heard so many people raving about it, but I just couldn't get it to work. I don't know if I got a malfunctioning bottle, but this turned my lashes into nothing but one huge clump. I've tried it several times but we just don't get along.
