This is my go-to everyday liner, in shade "blackest brown". I love this liner! Most days, I wear only liner & mascara (no shadow or base) - and I need something that doesn't run or smudge up to my brow bone by the end of the day. I started with pencil (smudged), tried gel (lasted longer than pencil, but eventually smudged), and finally bought this. This doesn't budge all …Read more

I really wanted to love this (& I almost do) but unfortuntaly this just didn't work for me. First, the pros. I found a perfect color match with Soft Beige. For reference, I'm NC25ish now, very warm golden yellow-toned skin. This foundation applies easily, blends nicely, looks smooth & flawless, almost semi-matte finish. Coverage is medium but looks completely natural, not at all …Read more

This is the first cream blush I've loved. Gerbera is a soft peachy pink color that looks great on my NC20-25ish very warm golden olive skintone. It livens up my complexion without looking clownish. (I apply using my fingers. I dip my index & middle finger in the blush to pick up some product, rub them together with the index & middle fingers of my other hand, then dot/blend onto my …Read more

I usually buy this in Stay Neutral, but recently picked up Invisible Matte at the CCO. Generally, it's a pretty good product; I have used up & repurchased Stay Neutral several times. I am NC20-25ish, very warm tones, with normal/combo skin. Stay Neutral is a perfect match, while I find Invisible Matte to be too yellow toned (and that's saying something since I'm pretty yellow …Read more

Great bargain find, thanks to the recommendation from a kind MUA-er. Whisper is a basic matte cream/ivory, a dupe for Bobbi Brown Bone e/s. Thiw works great as a base wash of color, a subtle browbone highlight or as a blending shade. Stays color true throughout the day and the texture is smooth. (EDIT: I recently compared this to Px buttermilk colorscope e/s & while this is still a great …Read more

Beautiful shade & great quality. The color is a rich, dark, purple plum; a true deep purple. (Unlike BB's e/s by the same name that is much more black than plum.) The pigmentation is great, application is smooth, easy to blend & nice texture. As another reviewer mentioned, it adds color but subtley which works perfectly for me since I tend to favor neutrals. This looks wonderful with …Read more

Not my favorite BB e/s shade. The quality, texture, pigmentation, and staying power are all excellent, as with all BB e/s I have tried. This shade is more black than plum. Works well for creating a dark smoky eye; I've used it with gray shades to add some more depth/darkness. Works nicely as a liner also. It's a good product, it just wasn't the shade I was looking for. (I found …Read more

NOTE: This is my 2nd review for Virtual Skin; I deleted the first because it didn't best explain why I love this so much.
I have been using this for about 1 1/2 yrs. and it's definitely my HG foundation. I couldn't ask for a more perfect formula than Virtual Skin - natural looking, buildable sheer-to-medium coverage, oil-free, great color selection. Despite daily use of …

This is my 2nd Colorstay quad & while this one is ok, I much prefer Copper Spice (check out my review). I love the texture, smooth application & lasting power of the Colorstay shadows but this quad didn't work for me. The shades are: light ivory/bone, really light taupe, medium shimmery copper, dark chocolate brown. The ivory shade doesn't really show up on me (although it …Read more

This is wonderful product & one of my favorite drugstore bargains. The shades are beautiful; light soft shimmery ivory/champagne, light shimmery peach, medium shimmery copper, and dark shimmery chocolate brown. The 2 lightest shades are great as base colors, for highlighting or blending. The 2 darker shades give you more impact but still an easy look for day. The darkest is good for lining or …Read more
