This is my absolute go-to foundation. I have oily/dry/flaky/dehydrated/acne-covered skin, depending on the day, so I hope my varied experience can help some of you guys in deciding whether to give it a go.

Pros:
- It feels really soothing and hydrating when you're applying it, due to its lightweight gel consistency. I honestly look forward to putting this on my face cause its …

Aug/08/2016

Pros:
- Very smoothing over the skin, which makes it great if you have uneven texture on your skin
- Looks hydrating on the skin
- Has a good medium coverage. I have used this to cover up blemishes before, and it looked great because of its smoothing and hydrating properties. Don't build it up too much though, because it will cake up in a few hours.
- Twist-up pen …

I thought that this would be the most bomb concealer in my world, considering all the hype it gets on YT. It was, for the first couple of applications, but then I found many downsides as well. Due to its thick cream-mousse consistency, the best way to blend out this concealer is either using clean fingers or a beauty blender sponge.

Pros:
- Very smooth finish, which makes it very …

I'm around NC20 and the colour Nude comes off a little orange on me due to oxidation. I'm not sure if a lighter shade will match me better.

This is quite a peculiar product. When you squeeze it out of the tube and start blending it on your face (I use my fingers), it feels very thin. The watery-moisture part of the product was separated from the pigment part, so it's …

Aug/16/2014

This concealer is absolutely amazing in terms on covering imperfections. It is extremely pigmented without being heavy, and has just the right amount of 'blendability' such that as you tap it out, it spreads but doesn't completely sheer out or come off your blemish. It also sets nicely. It is totally understandable how this is HG material for many people.

However, it …

Straight up, I don't really like this product.

Firstly, finding a shade is so difficult. I'm around an NC20-25 and both Fair and Light are way off! Fair is a very light shade, maybe NC15, and Light is more towards NC25 but very, very pink toned. I got a sample of the Light shade anyways, just to test the product out.

Secondly, I live in a humid climate plus have …

Jul/18/2014

I am absolutely blown away by this product! Long ago I've heard so many good things about the Victoria's Secret Face Prime as a dupe/alternative to the UD setting sprays. So when I saw the Prime & Set in store, I assumed that it is essentially the same product, just repackaged, and bought it straight away.

The packaging is nice and simple, just a clear plastic bottle with …

I LOVE this mascara. HG forever and ever. I look for a mascara that gives a lot of length, some volume, and most importantly, DOES NOT SMUDGE. I have used many mascaras from the drugstore and high end brands including Benefit's They're Real, which smudges terribly on me, believe it or not.

Clinique's Lash Power is a very small, sleek tube, which I love because it's …

This is a lovely product overall! I don't have dark circles so I cannot say how well it performs under the eyes, so this review is purely for acne, isolated blemishes and acne scars.

This concealer blends like a dream and has amazing coverage (I would say medium-full). I bought two shades of this - Sand, which matched my skin tone, and Cafe, which is much much darker and works …

Possibly THE worst foundation I have ever used. Granted, this foundation is amazing to apply. It's smooth, creamy and very easy to blend. It is easily layered to full coverage without looking too cakey. One of the few high coverage foundations which gives a very natural finish to the skin, not matte but not dewy. But that's where the good things end for me, unfortunately. This is the …Read more
