I think I've found my holy grail foundation.

What I like:
-Looks very smooth and skin-like on me. Friend of mine who's a makeup lover instantly noticed I had on a different foundation because she almost couldn't see it on my skin compared to all my previous foundations.

-AMAZING colour match. I got one of the newer shades (F9.5) and holy crap this is …

Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

Gave me cystic acne unfortunately

It wasn't like I got acne immediately, but after I put it on I always noticed some itching on my cheeks. If I use this long enough I get really big deep cystic acne on my cheeks, which honestly never happens. Ever since I stopped using it I never got cystic acne except for the rare hormonal one on my chin.

Also feels like it sits on …

Highlighters - MILANI - Illuminating Face Powder

Used this once and I'm absolutely in love with it.

I don't understand how Milani was able to mill the shimmers in it so finely, because I honestly cannot see it on my face, no matter the lighting.

I'm around an NC42, and on me Hermosa Rose is a pink-brown kind of color. A lil more pink, but I still use a lil bit on the perimerter of my forehead as a bronzer …

Foundations - Makeup Revolution - Fast Base Stick Foundation

I can't wear this foundation on it's own, for 3 reasons:
1. Bad shade match
2. Emphasizes pores
3. Emphasizes texture

Bad shade match:
Maybe this is just user error. I have F10 and it's entirely too pink on me, yet it's described as a golden undertone. Youtubers keep saying the shade range is good, but I completely disagree. Based on swatches …

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Application:
So finnicky.
It dries down so damn fast and is so prone to looking patchy.
A brush doesn't work for me because before I can blend the brush strokes out, the foundation has set.
So the only application that I've found workable is to pat a sponge straight into the foundation, then blend it out as quick as I possible can on my face.
I've also …

Liquid - Unlisted Brand - LA Girl Pro Matte Foundation

4.0

7 months ago

Pros:
Mattifying/oil-controlling
Creases less in lines compared to other foundations

Cons:
Emphasizes my texture
Can't be build to full coverage, only to a medium

This really impressed me with it's oil controlling properties and how little it settles into my fine lines. Unfortunately it just doesn't give me the coverage I need. I have lots …

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer

Doesn't do enough for me.

It makes my face really smooth and my foundations blend easier and sit on top nicer. Plus my texture is more blurred.

But, it doesn't fill in my pores at all.

Doesn't control oils.

Doesn't extend wear time.

As for filling in lines, I'm not entirely sure if it does that or …

Concealers - Makeup Revolution - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer

I bought this because I was looking for an alternative to my Colourpop concealer. And boi I'm glad I picked this.

It creases the least out of any concealer I've ever tried (this includes colourpop, maybelline fit me, la girl pro conceal, revlon colorstay, and milani retouch & erase). I honestly think no concealer is crease proof, but this is pretty damn close …

Pressed Powders - MILANI - The Multitasker Face Powder [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/15/2018

It's just alright, kinda meh.

Packaging: Quite bulky, not my favourite thing

As setting powder: Not my favourite, but not horrible. It gets cakey quite easily, so you have to use very little. Adds a little hint of extra coverage. But I don't think it controlled oils at all.

As foundation: It's alright, light coverage. But I'm more into medium …
