This is the worse foundation I have ever used. At first, the consistency of the liquid is smooth and fluid and coverage is light to light-medium at best. Colour range is horrible in this line and oxidation occurs a few hours after wear. It is not hydrating, accentuates flakes and subsequently makes skin over produce oil making the face uber shiny! After about a month of usage, the consistency …Read more

I so glad I grabbed one up at Murale as this is LE. I have no colors that are similar in my e/s collection and have never tried Guerlain e/s before this. I am extremely impressed! Not only are the colours gorgeous (they remind me of autumn leaves), the texture, finish, blendability and lasting power are all top notch. I pair these shadows with my BB Ivy Shimmer Ink and love the autumn-y look …Read more

This review is for #15 Velvet Purple (a Blackberry Plum). While perusing the displays of my local Sephora, they were in the process of stocking the new Givenchy line they had just begun to carry. I was immediately drawn to the glosses and swatched a few colours. On the far right of the display, I say Velvet Purple. A deep shimmering purple that looks very opaque in the tube, but applied on …Read more

For the price (got at 40% off) it's good. The size is not too big and the dense dome brush gives enough control to buff and blend in blushes. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that it is a little scratchy, but for the price, I can't complain. If your budget will allow, I suggest investing it HE brushes as they will last you 10+ years easy! I have some that are in …Read more

This brush does its job well. I use it to dust fall out from eyeshadow application, highlighter and sometimes blush. For blush application, I find that the brush picks up the powder and then deposits it right on your face... which is great but because it is so flimsy, there is no control and I actually get too much blush on my cheeks, which is why I don't use it for this purpose anymore. …Read more

I like the idea of this brush, but can't get past the quality. Maybe i got a bad batch, but the bristles on mine poof/spray out at the end making a fine line impossible. All I get is a thick line on my eye with this. I much prefer my MUFE 2S brush over this one. It is also scratchy.

This is my favourite brush to use for eyelining with gel liners. It can also be used as a lip liner brush. The sable bristles are so soft and maintain their shape very well with repeated use and washings. Since it is so small, you can really get into the lash liner and the brush is small enough to create precise lines and wings to your eyeliner. I like it much more than angled, straight and …Read more

I am in love with this lipstick! I got it in a great swap in #33 Wild Blackberry. It literally feels like there is nothing on your lips except for a moisturized non-greasy feeling. It's heaven as far as texture is concerned. It glides on with little to no effort. I can't speak for other colours, but wild blackberry is fantastic. It's more of a "just ate blackberry" …Read more

I may have found my signature scent! More wearable to a younger audience than the original Prada EDP which I found a tad strong. If you like something a little left of center in terms of fragrances, than definitely check this one out! I'm from the generation that grew up in a market over saturated with candy sweet florals/fruits and an over abundance of vanilla. I used to love those …Read more

This is my first plum/berry toned blush and I love it. The pigment is truly extraordinary as for all NARS blushes. The texture typical of other NARS blushes, tightly pressed but highly pigmented. Buffed in, most of the tiny gold micro glitters fall out and you are left with a very subtle warm berry blush. It is surprisingly wearable on my warm asian skin as long as I don't go swipe happy …Read more
