I would like to preface this review by saying that if you have oily or even combination skin, it is best to avoid this foundation. But crack on if you have dry skin.

The coverage is light but you can build it to medium. It looks very natural on, very even and your skin looks like skin and takes on a wonderful glow. But it is a dewy even oily finish, you have to set with powder …

I love this foundation. It is easy to work with, dries down nicely into a semi matte finish but your face still looks bright and glowy. It stays on well throughout the day. The coverage is medium and the major plus point about this is that your skin still looks like skin, you never look like you're wearing a mask with this. It works well for mature skin.

The initial application is nice, not too thick in coverage and has a satin finish. Alas after a few hours it sank into my pores and made them look like big open craters and started caking. Not recommended!

This cushion is simply the best. Better even than Sulwhasoo's. I was quite blown away by Sulwhasoo but the beautiful finish of Sulwhasoo does not last after 3 hours. But Iope's is different. It is moist, dewy and has such a beautiful glowy finish, I cannot stop admiring my face! I do need to touch up after 5 hours, but that it normal for all cushion foundations I believe. What impresses …Read more

It is confusing how this foundation can have such extreme effects on different people. It's dry for some and oily for others. For myself, I find it drying. I am mindful to apply moisturiser first and a more "greasy" SPF, as I know this foundation tends to get dry on me. But even so, I have trouble blending it well as it dries very quickly on my skin, so I have to work fast. It …Read more

This makes a great make up remover. I live in the tropics and when it arrived, of course the tub had melted into oil but I just dip my fingers in the oil, swipe over my face, give my face a good massage to melt off the makeup and then wipe over with a warm towel several times. My face is left feeling baby soft, so clean and smooth and clear, with even waterproof and eye makeup gone in one fell …Read more

I love the colour and texture of this lipstick. It is very creamy and doesn't dry or flake off. It feels really comfortable on the lips. It does not have extraordinary staying power and you do have to reapply after eating/drinking but that's not a big deal to me.

The colour is a lovely pink, not too blue and not too yellow based; quite neutral in my opinion. I have fair skin …

To all the naysayers of Perricone products, I say give it time, 4-6 months at least, and take before and after pictures.

I take a selfie of myself everyday, not for narcissistic reasons but because I want to examine the condition of my skin and see what it needs in terms of products and nourishment eg am I looking drier, more tired, do I need to amp up my serum/moisturiser etc. The …

This is the best foundation I have ever used and I've used many HE brands - Dior Forever (which is pretty good), Chanel Perfection Lumiere (so so, no staying power), YSL Éclat (sinks into my pores), Guerlain Perure Lumiere (also not bad). Where the Tarte foundation stands out is it's texture, consistency and the beautiful finish it leaves.

As I am older (fair with normal …

May/30/2013

I have 2 EB glosses (Lovers Desire and Nude Satin) which are quite light in colour and in the nude/peach/pinky category, but work great for my fair skin and dark hair, so I thought a light coloured lipstick in a similar colour family from EB would suit me equally well. Alas it is not to be. For some reason, it looks too light when applied and makes me look washed out. It just sinks in then …Read more
