I really love this foundation. I have a very very oily nose and very combo skin with flakey dry patches elsewhere. Every foundation goes oily on my nose at some stage. Powdered and primed - same result. LS doesn't. It sets completely and does not shine at all. Foundation has a very satin finish that looks beautiful on the skin. Thin formula with light to medium coverage and easily build …Read more

You need to be realistic about this product. It's not for coverage. If you can accept that, then you will get along fine with it. I use this religiously when I have good skin days and during daytime wear. I have combo skin, I use a primer, concealer on spots and lightly powder my T-zone. It lasts the same as my other foundations (MUFE HD, EL DW, Chanel Aqua), I always have to at least blot …Read more

Best for Blondes #10! I'm a 24y.o ash blonde with very neutral colouring. I need a very taupe/cool toned eyebrows to create the most natural look. For years I've used Bobbi Brown Cement (flat grey) eye shadow on my brows - still love it. But wanted an alternative to create a sharper, stay in place brow. I love this product, it's the perfect shade. No redness or warmth. Goes on so …Read more

Jun/07/2013

First time user of this product, bought the Premium A/I after going to a counter and being recommended by the SA. At the Aus counters (if they have time) they go through the entire regime of how to use it etc. My normal regime is BioDerma cleanser, Natio toner and Embryollise moisturiser with Clarisonic exfoliation which was working perfectly, but wanted a deeper cleanse for eye makeup. My skin …Read more

Pros: Effective and quick, calming/comfortable on the skin, does not sting/burn/irritate, takes eye makeup off easily, looks like …

*Normal/Dry skin formulation* I've been curious about this product for a while, but never really inspired to buy it. I ended up getting it on a whim because it was 30% off.
Pros: Colour matched perfectly (Buff), cool toned, didnt dry out my skin nor did I have a greasy T-zone by the end of the day, long lasting.
Cons: Smells like thinners, crap bottle (messy/no pump/cant control …

Nov/17/2012

From Australia and bought this Nude lipstick from NYX off crushcosmetics.com because its not sold locally. Its a very peach-nude lipsitck. Satin/creamy finish. I apply it lightly and blend it into the lip, therefore application without a mirror is unattainable. If applied with a heavy hand you'll have an obvious line look v.tacky. Its a moisturising formula but as any light lipstick, chapped …Read more

Oct/18/2012

Have the translucent pressed powder - 010, its completely bright white powder. Cost $30AUD (Illamasqua has dropped their prices to reflect the international market). I use this on top of Skin Base and the Matt Primer.
Pros: Sets make up without adding colour or coverage, nice sized pan for the price, no shimmer or 'light reflection' that you get with many translucent powders on …
