I tried this out as it’s supposed to be safe for seborrheic dermatitis, and it caused me to break out terribly. The colour was very nice and matched me perfectly, but it was difficult to apply to my oily skin and went on very patchy. When I applied it very sparingly and layered it on little by little instead, it seemed to go on a lot smoother and looked very nice. My pores looked noticeably …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips

I bought the travel size of this as a last minute purchase for makeup remover that will work as a carry on. I didn’t expect much, but wow, I was so impressed! It works very very well to take off waterproof makeup quickly and easily. There is no makeup left behind after a couple of swipes (no need for any aggressive rubbing), and is completely non-irritating to my eyes. It does leave behind a bit …Read more

It works like a dream! I put a few drops on a cotton pad, hold it over my eye for a short time (about 10 seconds), and it all comes off in a few swipes after that. It's so gentle on my skin, doesn't irritate/sting my eyes, and takes off waterproof mascara pretty easily. The texture is very light as well and doesn't leave any residue; it's almost hard to believe it's an …Read more

This is my HG makeup remover. It's water based and removes makeup easily (2 pumps for 1 cotton pad is enough to remove 90% of my makeup, so I end up using 2 pads total), and doesn't irritate my skin or leave it feeling like there is any oily film left over. I've never felt my face so clean and fresh after using a makeup remover before! The only downside is that it doesn't …Read more

This is a fantastic foundation that you can also use as a concealer, if you don't want to cover your whole face.

It doesn't provide heavy coverage (but this is one reason why I like it so much) but it's enough to hide most imperfections and still lets your skin look natural. I use a MAC stippling brush to blend it, but I've used my fingers to blend before and it …

Jan/19/2016

This is a great liquid eyeliner. The brush is thin and soft but doesn't lose its shape or dry out, so it's easy to apply and great for making a winged line. The color is also very pigmented and gives me a nice clear line in a deep pigmented black every time.

Even better, it stays on my fairly oily lids all day without smuding, even in the most humid weather. I've used it …

I wanted SO much to like this product, but my skin hates it. I have combination skin with some clogged pores and redness. My skin isn't sensitive at all with my normal routine but after adding this in (I used it in the morning, and also after cleansing at night to remove any leftover makeup) it caused me to break out in tiny little bumps all over my face within 2 days of first using it …Read more

Eyeliner - Eyeko - Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner

Sep/16/2015

I bought this because the Visual Eyes liquid eyeliner by Eyeko was sold out, so thought I'd give it a try. At first it seemed good, the colour was a nice solid black and it didn't seem to smudge much except if it was very humid outside. The brush was a bit thicker than I was used to but good for making a nice looking wing. However after only one week the tip completely dried out! I …Read more

May/28/2015

I have used this mascara a few times over the years, and every time it has failed to live up to my expectations. It does not keep my lashes curled;1 hour after application I notice that my lashes are already starting to go flat. Another big problem is that it will always smudge under my eyes no matter what the weather is or how much mascara I've put on (however, it is easy to wipe away the …Read more

This is great as both a moisturizer and makeup primer. I use it morning and night and it thoroughly hydrates my skin without causing clogged pores or any irritation. It's a very reliable product for me; I can use this any time without worrying how my skin will react, and can always count on it giving my face the moisture it needs in any kind of weather.

I find that it absorbs …
