This is the first face product that I think is perfect on all accounts and I have finally found my HG. Some background: I have sensitive combination skin with normal cheeks and a very oily t-zone. I don't usually have break-outs (unless I use products that break me out), but I do have redness and blackheads.
Color: I use the color porcelain, which is a spot on perfect match. I have …

This is my go-to daily eyeliner. It's a cream eyeliner and as such the consistency and result is inbetween a pencil eyeliner and a gel eyeliner. I like gel liner when I want to make a precise/sharp line. I also like using a pencil because it's easier to apply and has a softer look. However, pencil doesn't last as long as gel liner and you have to sharpen it constantly (which is a …Read more

This is a lovely toner. It's alcohol, paraben, perfume and artificial color free. It has very few ingredients, which is a good thing in my book. It's very mild, non-irritating, calming and slighly moisturizing. This is the first toner that made it to my daily routine. I do notice a difference in my skin if I skip this. Overall it just helps balance out my skin and it makes my skin look …Read more

This color is just stunning. I normally only like creamy polishes without any shimmer or texture, but this color is an exception. It's a corally-reddish-orange with gold shimmers and liquid sand texture. The texture gives a nice depth to the sparkles. The combination is just gorgeous. I can't stop looking at my nails when I wear this. It's joy in a bottle.
The polish itself is …

I usually check MUA reviews before I buy anything, but with this product I am glad I did not. I'm sure the low rating would have stopped me from buying this, but I'm actually very happy with this product!

Consistency: the product is a very thin (almost water-like) consistency. Therefore it doesn't really even out the surface of your mani like some topcoats can do. It …

This product has made a visible difference to my skin. My skin is more even toned and more clear.
First some info about my skin: slighty sensitive, dehydrated, clog prone, combination (oily t-zone, normal cheeks).
Since I made some diet changes I have no more break-outs (cut out dairy, reduced sugar, added omega 3), but I still suffered from unsightly blackheads and sebacious …

This is my go-to daily blush. I can't wear most powder blushes because my skin is very clog-prone and most of them break me out with daily use. I do much better with tints as they usually have very few ingredients. I first tried the red kind of tints but I could never get the color to work for me. I have fair skin with neutral undertones. Even though my skin is even toned and I don't …Read more

I just love this product. It feels like a lipbalm, but it has great color pay-off. It's actually moisturizing and it doesn't accentuate flakes. The balm wears off as quick as regular lip balms do I guess, but the color does stain the lips so even when it wears off you still have color on your lips. I find the applicator very easy to use. I can pop this on without a mirror, though I also …Read more

This is my favourite concealer of all time. I have terrible dark circles and this does the best job at covering them. I only need to use a tiny amount to cover them and it stays put all day. It doesn't crease or settle into lines. The product comes out a bit creamy but then it sets and won't budge. If you apply too much it'll become cakey, but because of the great coverage you …Read more
