I am a Esthetician and have used Turmeric for the past 3-4 years as a brightening mask and spot treatment for acne: pustules. (1tsp Tur & 1 tbsp plain yogurt). It accelerates the healing of my skin and is anti- inflammatory. My skin is golden brown I can experience the "stain"effect if I mix in to much Turmeric, so fair skin folks start off with just a pinch. I also use it as a …Read more

I got a sample at Sephora. I was not sure I wanted to try it because it was sillicone free. A primer is generally made of sillicone to smooth the skin and help the makeup adhere and stay fresh. Sillicone free is good though for my skin, being very acne prone and oily , as well as sometimes dehydrated. My forehead, nose and chin still were a little oily, but more of a "healthy sheen". I …Read more

I bought my color too dark because I wanted strong/bold brows but this is a GREAT product. I have a heavy hand, so filling in with pencil just does not work for me. The power is great and then use a spooly to comb brows. I need to pick up the dark brown shade. I do not use the wax because it clogs pores and I am very acne prone.I set my brows with a brow gel or aloe vera gel.

I bought this because of the great price and the comparisons to the Makeup forever hd powder.i have never tried the makeup forever powder but I'm guessing that version (and more expensive version) is a finer powder. This ELF one is fine. I wouldnt say great. Even using a TINY bit makes my face look darker and to chalky. I prefer a LITTLE sheen to look more natural. I tried lightly dusting a …Read more

Yes! I love this blush and at $3 it's a steal! I purchased coral and I love it. I went with the mineral blush because the other blushes have mineral oil and breaks me out. This blush is great, great color, doesnt clog my pores and looks natural.

This concealer does not conceal very well. It absorbs right into the skin( well my sometimes oily skin), didnt last covering hyperpigmentation, pimples. I was not impressed for $23.The color selection could be better with more yellow undertones.

I got a sample at the counter, color match was not great(slightly too dark),but good I can never find the perfect shade. I loved the foundation-nice natural coverage but my shade is so hard to find. Shades are either too beige or too dark.Stila needs to work on their shades.
