Primer/ Corrector - Deciem - The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

Very happy with this primer. Holds makeup together, doesn't get greasy through the day, and (for me at least) doesn't pill. I have used primers that are twice as expensive but provide half the quantity of this one - this not only beats them in performance but is also astonishingly priced.
Highly recommended and will repurchase.

Treatments (Face) - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Night Lotion

I really wanted to like this, but it did nothing for my acne, and dehydrated my skin terribly. the texture of my skin is now rough and dry whereas it's usually soft, even if I have breakouts. I suppose the tea tree line is too harsh for me. Definitely would not repurchase and would suggest any potential user try a sample for a few days before making a purchase of the full size.

Primer/ Corrector - MILANI - Prime Shield Face Primer Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing

I really like Milani products so am disappointed to review this primer as a definite no-no. It is expensive for just 20ml of product (over in a jiffy) and doesn't 'hold' foundation in place. Within a few hours I am greasy and shiny and might as well have used an inexpensive moisturiser under my makeup instead of a primer.
Would not repurchase.

Your skin but better!
Can't believe that a product like this exists at this price point. I have eschewed MAC and most expensive brands since going cruelty-free. Milani came highly recommended by bloggers and makeup artistes on YouTube, so gave it a shot.
Goes on like a dream. Very light finish and very good coverage - how do they do it? And it lives up to its promise of being a …

Excellent coverage, lovely clean finish, but boy does it transfer - if you dab at your face with so much as a finger, it comes off on to it. That's my only grouse. I set it with a pressed powder to mitigate this. Otherwise another reliable MAC product.

I almost didn't buy this given the negative reviews here, but then thought that I'd try it anyway since it's not expensive. I'm glad I did. It really works for me (I use Light Beige on my NC42 skin) - a very simple, clean, blurred finish (as promised) that lasts through the workday. Has not broken me out so far. At this price point I highly recommend it.

Concealers - L.A. Girl - PRO Conceal HD Concealer

I use the green shade to neutralise red, cystic acne that pops up every now and then. It does the job and foundation + concealer work much better once the green is laid out beneath them. I actually like the tiny brush applicator since it allows greater precision.
Ingredients aren't great - parabens! - but I use very little at a time and it's cost-effective. I would give this 5 …

I am pretty happy with my boi-ing concealer (shade 03) - covers redness well, relatively easy to apply. For the price I would like to see more hygienic packaging though - it makes no sense to have people touch up their blemishes then go back into the concealer with the same finger!
Due to price and packaging, I will probably shop around for other concealers before repurchasing this …
