Foundations - Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2018

I bought 2 bottles of the coverage and 2 of the serum (in N 1.0 and N 1.1). This is a bit better than the serum foundation in that it did not feel like a mask on my skin. However, it moved after 2 hours, when other foundations I've used do not budge for 6+ hours. Also, it emphasized lines under my eyes. Would not recommend.

Powders - Jane Iredale - Pure Matte Finishing Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2018

I am on pan number 2. I would not use this wet; leaves the powder very hardened if you do use it wet. No breakouts from this one, and easy to carry. There is a puff that comes with the refill. Is it my favorite powder though? No, this is good for travel, but I don't find it to be finely milled enough for everyday use.

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2018

It's an OK product; I'm on the fence. Smell is herbal, not nauseating, but the squeeze tube is very temperamental; sometimes just too much comes out. It's not drying, but doesn't do a squeaky clean job either. I prefer a foaming washing that actually foams. But it's better than some of the ones that leave the skin filmy and dry. Price point is ok, not great.

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Ursa Major Fortifying Face Balm

It has great ingredients (including ferment), and is a good antioxidant serum. This is moisturizing for oily skin, but in the winter, definitely need a moisturizer. It's good at keeping the skin resilient, during the winter and also the humid months. No breakouts for my sensitive skin.

The bad thing about the opaque plastic container is that I can't see the amt of product …

Foundations - Zelens - Zelens age control

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2017

I have two of the Age Control - Cream and Porcelain. These are medium to full-coverage foundations; creamy, but not thick. However, my major gripe is that the consistency between Cream and Porcelain are not the same! Cream is thicker and more viscous, while Porcelain is more liquid. I am so surprised re: quality control for a $110 foundation.

Cream is a great under-the-eye concealer …

Brows - Blinc - Brow Mousse

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2016

I have been using the eyebrow mouse from Blinc for the past 2 years - 5 stars for the product (wish it is a little cheaper; it's $24 USD before tax). I have dark brown hair and medium-brown eyebrow coloring, but I use light brunette in the mousse. This makes my brows look natural, polished, and not overly dramatic; great for the office and for meetings where you would want to present a …Read more

Concealers - Dr. Hauschka - Pure Care Cover Stick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2015

I second the reviewer down below - this concealer highlights the flaws that you try to hide! opposite of what a concealer should do. I tested 01 - it's very pink-based; and it's shiny! I tested 02 - it's more neutral based, but still has a silvery shine!

Avoid.

BB Cream - Yves Saint Laurent - Top Secrets All-In-One BB Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2015

It's a decent high-end BB cream. The color range leaves much to be desired; I am an NC-15, and I got the light ("no color"). The light is very "pink" before application, and frankly is very light coverage at best - totally different than a Korean BB cream. Not very buildable in terms of coverage, but one thing I like was that it was not very oily after an 8-hour day and …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - La Mer - The Reparative SkinTint SPF30

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2015

I have tried many high-end foundations in search of a holy grail - this is one of the better ones out there in the price range. I am a fan of the most recently released Zelens Age Control & Youth Glow foundations for their coverage and skincare properties, but the new La Mer Tint is great for the summer. I just got a moisturizer that doesn't have spf, and this is perfect to wear over it …Read more
