Flake city. Does it hold your curl? Yes. Does it clump? No. Will it be all over your cheeks by the afternoon? Yes. Definitely would not recommend.

After trying a sample and falling in love I purchased this. For the record my skin is normal leaning oily in T-Zone and can be acne prone. I use Elta MD sunscreen every morning and it can make my skin a little shiny and slippery. This helps get it back to a normal state whether I'm wearing makeup or not. I find it will mattify my skin without drying it out. I also like it's not like …Read more

I received this in a gift with purchase and I am so glad I did!! I would have never thought to buy this on my own but now I want all of the scents! I have the coconut one and it smells amazing. Not chemical or synthetic at all. It's just a clear gloss so it won't last forever but it's ok because it's not sticky at all so it doesn't leave any weird residue behind when it …Read more

As someone who went through multiple bottles of the Biore Face Milk (white bottle) I find this to be very similar but not as watery and doesn't reek of alcohol. However, with that being said, unlike the Biore one I CANNOT wear this under makeup. It causes my foundation to go on super cakey, not blend at all, and settle into cracks/crevices/pores. I will keep using this product, but only …Read more

I'm already on my second bottle of this. I have struggled with acne for years. I have used everything you can think of (minus products with BP as I am allergic). I'm 36 and my skin is oily, but dehydrated and clog prone as well as acne prone. I have FINALLY found a routine that seems to be working (*knock on wood*). After make-up removal and cleansing with Clinique TTDO balm and …Read more

This stuff is a life saver. While I have a lot of hair, what I do have is very fine. That being said, whenever I go to do anything from a simple ponytail to any other kind of updo, I would always have thin areas where scalp would show. Being that I have to wear my hair up for work everyday each morning was a struggle for me to work and work to try and cover those areas. I had taken to using …Read more

May/08/2018

So I gave the mini bottle a go because I tend to like most Moroccanoil products. Let me just give a pro/con list for you.

Pros:
Does absorb oil
Doesn't leave that gross, clumpy, gritty feeling some dry shampoos can
I love the scent

Cons:
Expensive
While meant for "Dark Tones" this stuff comes out white. I mean really white. Like …

May/18/2017

This isn't just a no for me, it's a hell no. Too light and too pink for my skin tone (NC20). Medium coverage but was so greasy I had to set it with a ton of powder and continuously blot and powder throughout the day (I should mention I had my uber mattifying Biore SS on under it). Seemed to accentuate fine lines as soon as I applied it, then continued to settle in them throughout the …Read more

Maybe I got a bad one but oh my gosh was this terrible. I received a deluxe sample from Sephora in the shade Bare Baby. I tried it a week or so later and had to remove it within minutes. The smell was so rancid and I could taste it too!!! Literally made me sick to my stomach. Plus it was super sticky and the color was very pale and milky, not the pink it appeared in the tube. Would NOT …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

May/05/2016

I find it amusing that the word "Poreless" is actually in the title of this because I have never in my life had a foundation settle into my pores as bad as this did. It seriously looked like I had hundreds of weird speckles all over my face. Oxidizes and doesn't stay matte Glass bottle, screw top lid (i.e. impossible to get product out in a clean fashion). Nothing positive to …Read more
