I said yes to buying it again but am not sure. Honestly, for all the $$ I've spent over the years on makeup and skincare this is the first higher-end primer I've ever tried. It works well over sunscreen and under powder foundation to smooth and make foundation last longer and doesn't irritate my very sensitive skin. Now that I am convinced primers can actually work, I have 2 more I …Read more

Powder - bareMinerals - barePRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation

13 days ago

Out of the many new powder foundations I've been trying lately (one I used for years was discontinued) this was *almost* the winner. It didn't irritate my very reactive skin, I liked the compact, the finish was okay but not quite as matte as I prefer for my combo skin but I couldn't find a shade match. Aspen was a smidge too light and Sateen was a little too dark. It applied fairly …Read more

Moisturizers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Sensitive Fluide

Been using for 2 days and so far I love it! I would never have found this if not for MUA. I have very sensitive, reactive skin, very oily tzone, combo/normal everywhere else on face. The CereVe Lotion I was using with no unwanted effects was just making my skin too oily and other moisturizers I've tried always led to red blotches, itching, welts, etc. within 1-3 days of use. So far this is …Read more

Edit 11/16/19:
Dropped rating down to 3 only because I think this would be good for a smoother skin with less texture, maybe? Nothing I could prep with (2 sunscreens, 2 different primers, etc.) would make this look good up close and my skin is actually pretty good for >50! Suckered in by the youtubers :(

Primer/ Corrector - REVLON - Prep & Protect Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 25

Not a good product at all for me. It never really set/dried down (maybe because of humidity here?) causing powder foundation to grab on in patches and look horrible. I tried a couple of times, using various amounts adn waiting longer before foundation but still the same result. Maybe it just can't be worn over sunscreen? I would never use enough of this to count as sunscreen. Also, irritated …Read more

NW20 = 20C Almond
Giving this 3 lippies because I think for a heavy coverage it would look fine but as hard as I tried I could not get it to look "daytime natural" on my skin. Didn't really wear very well over sunscreen on mature, oily skin either. Color was excellent though! I wanted it to work but just didn't.

Oh Mac - why can't you make a decent foundation for me? Studio Fix made me breakout within hours and your liquids are either too heavy or too sheer or irritate my skin. Will always love you for eyes, lips and cheeks (and VivaGlam charitable giving). And I baby my older, natural hair eye brushes like you wouldn't believe!
NW20 is my color forever so at least I can use that to …

Hmmm - after a *very* exhaustive search to replace my much beloved MUFE Duo Mat (discontinued argghh, confirmed via email w/MUFE) and trying many powder foundations, I have settled on this. What a surprise! It has a denser, creamier feel than dryer Duo Mat but wears very well! And no skin problems so far after 3 days wear. I had to buy a new brush though to apply as the It Cosmetics #206 Mineral …Read more

Edit-had to return as was causing clogged pores and oiliness. Still think would be great for less oily skin!

With combo/oily, mild rosacea, very clog prone skin I am liking this so far! My skin likes niacinamide so not a problem for me. I needed something very gentle to use under any spots of flaky areas (Retin a user) under daily sunscreen (EltaMD UV Clear). It’s not terribly …

(Former reviews as bumblebee770)

As reviewer below, I also wanted an all in one (light moisturizer and sunscreen) product and think I may have found it. I have oily and very very sensitive skin. This has a very faint sunscreen fragrance, a completely natural finish(not shiny, not dry powder-y) and so far has not caused irritation, redness or breakouts. If anything changes I’ll update …
