Love this to bits. It calms down inflammation. It reduces my pores. It fights redness and breakouts. I apply it as last step of my skincare, over moisturizer, because it almost feels like a primer. Will repurchase for ever and ever. It's healing my skin.

What I love: The price. It's super cheap. I enjoyed applying it. It made my pores visibly smaller.
What I hate: It broke me out like there is no tomorrow. Irritation galore everywhere I applied it, and it wasn't purging. It was breakouts from irritation. Getting worse as time went on. I had to stop using it.

I since switched to the Azelaic Acid of the same line and love …

This is literally the only MAC concealer that does not break me out. It's easy to use, blends out well, and does not dry me out. It comes in a huge range of shades and I found the perfect one for me. I use this one shade darker than my foundation mainly for blemishes, or to touch out my foundation during the day. Great product.

I used this for a few weeks and realized that it broke me out like there is no tomorrow. I since investigated the ingredients and they are identical with the MAC blushes, which I had also been using at the same time. They all contain some pretty nasty pore-clogging ingredients. Still looking for the perfect sculpting powders, but these aren't it for me. I switched to Cargo for the blushes …Read more

This is just the most perfect baby pink, glossy lipstick you can wish for. It glides on like a gel, it keeps my lips soft and hydrated like a balm, has the subtle shine of a light gloss but it is opaque with enough color pay-off like a lipstick. Gives you the shine of a gloss with the easy of a lipstick. The color looks way off on the website. On my my pigmented lips, it is a light, warm baby …Read more

Yep. This is breaking me out like a mofo. I noticed it leaves some kind of a film behind, but I figured it's probably good for my skin that it will not take the protective layer of oil away. Yeah, don't bother. For my super-sensitive, clog- and acne prone skin, this was a bust. At least it was cheap. Back to Neostrata I crawl. Teaches me right to try to save some money. :(

Eye Makeup Remover - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Glow - Sensational Cleansing Oil

Since I switched to a hard-to-remove foundation, I was looking for a cleansing oil that rinses away with water. There are a lot of those out there, but I needed a cost efficient easy to find one that does the job. L'Oreal to the rescue. It doesn't smell fantastic, but it's ok. It's liquid, but the pump works well enough without creating a mess. And most importantly, it …Read more
