I have this in Ginger Binge / Moscow Mule.

I've been trying hard to love this, but I just...can't. Ginger Binge is lovely, but it's too dark for a highlighter. As a blush it's beautiful but not anything particularly unique. Moscow Mule is too glittery and just enough pink to look sickly on me rather than pretty. I guess rose gold will stay as my jewelry but not my …

Primer/ Corrector - BECCA - First Light Priming Filter

5.0

Dec/26/2017

I LURV this stuff!

I have quite yellow skin, so I think the slight lavender tinge tones down any sallowness I might have. I just look more awake, like I'm being a good girl and getting enough sleep and drinking enough water. I also appreciate the highly hydrating formula since I live in an arid environment and work in an office. Doesn't blur or smooth pores, but that's …

Primer/ Corrector - BECCA - Backlight Priming Filter

I've tried all of Becca's primers, and I just can't get on the Backlight train. I think the golden tones disappear against my golden tan skin. It also surprisingly seems to make my skin duller (!) compared to not wearing it. At least it didn't break me out.

Foundations - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

I wear shade 330. I've also worn/wear Becca Bamboo, and NARS Tahoe.

It took me some trial and tribulation to like this foundation. First off STAY AWAY if you have any dryness, this will cling to dry patches like a dog on a steak. Though I would think that anyone with dry skin would stay away from anything that says matte? In my case, I don't have dry skin but get occasional …

Concealers - BECCA - Undereye Brightening Corrector

Dec/26/2017

This is one of those products that isn't particularly sexy or game changing, but does its job and does it well. I pat this underneath my eyes with my fingers prior to applying foundation and it makes me look just a bit more awake. I don't have incredibly dark undereye circles (I use an eye cream at night), but they're dark enough to notice if I wear just foundation and no …Read more

I've been wearing this off and on for years in Bamboo. No matter how many brands I stray to, I always come back to this.

As I've gotten older and perfected my skincare routine, I've gone from oily to normal, but I still have acne scarring, large pores, and texture from my teenage years. This foundation covers pretty much everything without feeling heavy, but I'm …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Aug/03/2016

I wish I could understand why this foundation gets such bad reviews, as I LURV this stuff. Perfect match (Tahoe), keeps my skin looking demi-matte without looking mask-like, lasts the work day, and doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything on my face at all. No blotting needed! Doesn't have an SPF (yay, I wear a separate anyway and so should you!) and comes with a pump (double YAY!) …Read more

Foundations - Too Faced - Born This Way Foundation

Undertones ran much too red for this yellow-toned gal. I normally wear NARS Tahoe, and tried Honey (too light and red) and Caramel (too red, slightly too dark). Also if you have any oiliness at all this foundation you're going to be a greaseball in 2-3 hours. My skin has normalized to the point where I don't even consider myself oily anymore, but I had to blot with this foundation on.

Sunscreen - TATCHA - Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35

Nov/08/2015

This product is indeed a fantastic sunscreen that can also act as a primer. It's lightweight, and absorbed quickly without making my skin feel dry and tight. Although it comes out of the tube white it dried translucent, and I never noticed a white cast to my golden tan skin. It blurred the appearance of my cavernous pores, and kept my makeup intact throughout my long 14 hour work days. No …Read more
