LOVE this. I just realized my 'combination' skin is not dry/oily, it's dehydrated! At 32 I had terrible skin texture and my previous trusty bb cream wasn't hydrating enough anymore. Oils and thick creams did nothing for me.

This cleanses my face without stripping it and leaves my face feeling soft.

I finish with a bit of Boots hydrating mask as my …

My HG!

This moisturizer does wonders for my dry skin, but not immediately. (Which is why I think it works so well)

I suffered all winter with ponds dry skin cream and even a lovely clinique cream. But those are very rich, and somehow my skin doesn't retain that moisture that well.

The beauty of this lotion is that it holds moisture IN. I use 10% benzoyl …

LOVE THIS
I was in a beauty rut... trying to battle dry winter skin while also dealing with new wrinkles at age 29.
I tried physician formula bb cream and thought it was too thick and unflattering. I tried my favorite moisturizer under my favorite mk foundation and found it covered, but didn't leave me looking good.

Enter cg clean makeup which I had used in the past …

Oh wow! I didnt expect much from this, but it's just so wonderful. It's soft, like a feather but it's very pigmented. I don't feel it on my lips, but i definitely see it!

Its not sticky or glossy, so it almost reminds me of a lip stain, but better.

I wish they had more pink colors. But.. This one is wonderful because you can use it as a light wash of …

LOVE this. it is one of the tools in my kit that has transformed me from 'pretty' to 'WOW'!!!!

i got the Light shade which is pretty light on me. i put it under my eyes, around my nose and mouth and it just makes me look so much younger and makes me feel gorgeous. i know any highlighter can give that effect, but its brightness in color is awesome, kinda pinky but …

i really like this. i hated it at first, because i am used to putting on my TM when my face is damp, but with this one, it caused my skin to suck up all the moisture and look dry.

now i put it on after my face is dry, and it covers well. moisturizes, evens out my skin tone and is not greasy. it really gives me that natural feel with some coverage.

i usually like TM with some …

wow.. this foundation really impressed me for several reasons:

no breakouts: i have acne prone skin, and wearing foundation every day will usually break me out. i wore this several days in a row AND fell asleep in it at least 2 times, and i did not break out one bit. i was shocked, since it is not a light foundation.

good coverage: this really evened out my skin tone and …

i purchased this powder in translucent medium for my oily, uneven-toned skin

i love it! it's the only thing that has controlled my oil slick. i wear it in two ways:

1. i use a fluffy brush to apply it over my foundation and it does cover without making me lose the dimension in my face. after a while, my t-zone becomes a bit shiny, but i blot it with rice paper, and it …

my bf: wow... i never noticed what amazing lashes you have!

this is from someone who never gives compliments. my eyelashes look longer than they've ever looked. they look fake.

i usually go for the slightly 'clumpy' look as it makes my eyelashes look thicker, but with this mascara, i didn't do that since it made them so long and thick. the clumpy look …
