It's ok nothing special, I don't know why pixiwoo rave about it, bought it because they also have dry skin like me. For me this cream is not thick and hydrating enough, for me how I test a cream is if leaves dry patches under my physical sunscreen, well it does.. but I guess if you have oily or combo skin it will probably work pretty well.

My holy grail cleanser! I have tried many other cleanser they are either sting my face, not doing a good job or not comfortable on the face, This cleansing balm feels very comfortable when massaging on the face, and for people think it leaves a film residue I would suggest don't rinse it off with water but try wipe it off with a warm damp wash cloth.

Yes it is a convenient tool to have but I probably wouldn't repurchase again, because I have done a comparisons between this and just using clean fingers the results are the same if not better. With fingers you can even get more control and less products to apply foundation or other cream products. So I wouldn't say it's a essential product especially for the price tag.

The first few times I have applied it I thought it was quite good mainly because it's my first proper foundation( before I only ever used tinted moisturizer and powder foundation), then I tried a few more and start to realize this foundation is so mediocre performs more like a drugstore foundation to me.

Pros
Good coverage for one layer and looks quite …

When I use it the first couple of times I thought this is not magic at all it really feels like just a regular moisturizer. But then after I learn how to use it it totally works wonders! First of all, you have to a lot more than your normal moisturizer especially if you have dry skin, and then you just massage it in your skin. So I have few different sunscreens( physical ones), they all tend to …Read more

Omfg the hype is real, this brush is AMAZING, UNBELIEVABLE, INCREDIBLE! It's the softest brush I ever laid my hands on, it blends every kinds of powder products soooo well, now when I pick up my other brushes( lancome, mac, zoeva, sigma etc) I think they are just way more dense, I can totally feel straightway the difference between them. I know for the price you can buy 4 or 5 brushes but …Read more

WTF is the this?? the worst eyeliner I have ever used, it smudges all over in 20 mins LITERALLY, normally when eyeliner smudges on my eyes, it usually gets on lower eyelid, but this one is so bad it got all over my eyelids as well! OMG I can't believe estee lauder has products like this it's worst than any low end brands I ever tried.

I have incredible oily and monolid eyelid, have tried many other mascara(all waterproof) but they all still smudge on me, clinique lash power doesn't smudge but it's so difficult to remove. And this one is perfect, the curl stays all day, and doesn't smudge(ok maybe just a little bit after a few hours), the only downside is the mascara wand is very thick but it doesn't get …Read more

I received a sample of this oil so had tried it on and my thought is this stuff is a joke it feels like I just put perfume on my face it just smell so strong and made my face itchy, I don't know if it fights aging or not but I definitely wouldn't put something like that on my face anymore!
