Liquid - No7 - Beautifully Matte Foundation

Oct/22/2016

I love everything about this product except the color selection. I am a NC30 in MAC for reference and I purchase this boots foundation in cool ivory. This shade looks so ashy on my skin, every time I wear it I look like I haven't seen the sun in months! So I always ended up using a good amount of blush and bronzer when I use this foundation. All the other shades were either too dark and just …Read more

This is a very nice drug store concealer!
Coverage - sheer to medium
Consistency - very thin compared to most concealers, a little bit can cover a large area.
I have oily sensitive skin with light to moderate acne. I been on retin-A for 4 years now so my skin can get pretty sensitive if I am not careful. I have no bad reaction to this concealer so far (been using it for 3 months …

This brush worked nicely at first but now the bristles has became rough and rugged. I can no longer make clean sharp lines with this brush, which is very important especially for the tail end of your brows! I clean my brushes every week in case you're wondering.

As a graduate student who's always on a budget, I tend to not spend big money on expensive high end makeup unless they're worth it. This product is definitely worth it.
I've been using this for 6 months now and I have yet to make a dent in the product.
I can tell it will last me for years. It is the longest lasting eyebrow product I have used so far, and most of the …

Like the concept. Using a fine tip pen would give me precision when drawing in my brows however this has no color payoff at all. I can barely see any deposit of color when I use it.

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer

I chose this over Urban Decay's primer potion because of two reasons, (1) its cheaper and (2) it's in a convenient squeezable tube.
I do like this primer, I haven't seen any creasing ever since I started using it, however I'm only giving it 4 stars because I've only used two eye shadow primer in my life. This and the sucky L'oreal decrease. Therefore, I feel …

HG makeup remover right here. Although I haven't been through enough makeup removers to compare them to this, I can say now that I no longer need to because this stuff removes everything.
I have tried a few drugstore makeup removers and they either don't get the job done or they do get the job done but I always lose a couple of eyelashes along the way.
I wear japanese brand …

I've been using this on my body for almost a year now. the results are very very gradual i must say, i did not see a big difference till the 6~7 month mark.
Sadly, its summer here in sunny Georgia and i'm seeing a slight pigment to my skin even though i wear spf 75 everyday.
This bar of soap does work but it takes a while.
I was also skeptical of using this on my face …
