This foundation is great! I like the pump packaging and use less than half a pump for my full face. This is probably a rather sheer application for this foundation and you can definitely use more for full coverage. I don't set it with powder as I like the satin finish and it still lasts the whole day.

There is no discernible scent (I used the old version more than 10 years ago …

I really wanted to like this powder but unfortunately it wreaks havoc on my skin by sucking all the moisture out of it. After application my face always felt smooth yet gritty at the same time. At night after cleansing my skin would be drier than usual. I tried using heavier moisturisers underneath but it made no difference. This week I used it for 3 days in a row and finally woke up with eczema …Read more

I must have repurchased this at least 10x by now and will probably continue repurchasing it for a long time. It's not the cheapest Vit C serum around, but it works! I use 2 pumps at night after cleansing (before toner and moisturiser) and it really improves the brightness and clarity of my skin in the morning. I used to use it in the mornings as well, but found that a little too much in the …Read more

As the years go by my skin is getting progressively drier and more sensitive. I like the MSF because it is not drying and does not irritate my skin. I do not wear foundation anymore, but I wear sunscreen and therefore I always need to use a powder on top to take off the shine of the sunscreen and set it for the day. The MSF performs this function and its sheer coverage allows my underlying skin …Read more

Brows - shu uemura - H9 Hard Brow Pencil - Seal Brown

This brow pencil in Seal Brown is the perfect brow pencil for me. My eyebrows are naturally very sparse so with many other pencils or brow powders they just end up looking too drawn-on and harsh. This pencil however, always gives me perfect and natural looking eyebrows. I am fair (NC15) and have black hair currently but even when my hair was dyed a light ash brown, Seal Brown was still a suitable …Read more

I didn't buy this but chose this at the salon for my pedicure. The swatches online look brownish grey and after trying on 1 layer I expected it to turn like in the photos. However, at 2 coats it came out alot darker than I expected and looks like another boring grey. Obviously I was hoping for it to look more brownish and taupe-like so I'm disappointed. The colour is also probably too …Read more

I can't comment on whether this product applies well or not because I got my pedicure done at the salon (and obviously didn't have to paint my toes myself!). What I can say is that it is a very bright red that looks great against fair skin and is perfect for summer! It is very eyecatching but still appropriate for the office because it is a classic red that contrasts very nicely against …Read more

Only just got this last evening and it's an absolute winner :)
My lips are naturally very rosy which is all good except for how I can't wear pale or lighter pinks or nudes because they will always appear brighter and redder than in the tube. Applied on its own this is the perfect nude beige for my lips. I can also layer pale pinks such as Mac's Snob, St Germain, Gaga over it …
