I haven't written a review in a long time (regular lurker) but felt compelled to do so after using this product for 3 weeks. I have oily skin that is very acne prone (even on BC), some texture on my cheeks from old acne, no visible signs of ageing yet. Lots of congested pores especially on the nose. My skin is dull most of the time from stress/pollution. This has BLOWN AWAY any other …Read more

A staple in my makeup artist and personal kit. On myself I use this to spot conceal my acne and it works amazingly well. On clients, I've used this in every possible way, from a full coverage tattoo concealer to a more sheered down version to make a tinted moisturizer. On a recent editorial I've mixed no.16 with moisturizer to make the gorgeous black model's skin look like …Read more

Bronzers - MAC Cosmetics - Sun Dipped

This is probably the best bronzer I've ever used. I have fair skin and this doesn't have any orangy/red undertones, but rather it gives a beautiful olive, brownish glow to the skin. The texture is what sets it apart in my opinion, buttery soft, incredibly easy to blend and matte, but not flat. For me this is better than Nars Laguna in the cool toned bronzers department. I wish this was …Read more

This cleanser has made a dramatic difference on my skin. I've suffered from acne for a while due to hormonal imbalances/stress and this manages to calm the redness, minimize my pores and cleanse my skin really well. I normally remove my makeup with Bioderma first, and follow with this one. My skin LOVES it. I have very sensitive skin that gets very oily throughout the day but it is also …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Lipstick - Jungle Red

I thought a pure red with no visible blue or orange tones would be boring. Never have I been so wrong... We have been so obsessed with our timeless Ruby Woo's and our trendiest neon oranges we have forgotten the beauty of truly red lips. When you wear this, you will be telling the world you are wearing red lipstick. Not cherry, not tomato, not berry, not brick: it is the most gorgeous and …Read more

I LOVE my Skin Base! After trying it out for myself I decided to add it to my pro kit and now it's one of my favourite foundations to use on clients.
First of all, the color range is outstanding. They have really researched skintone variations in depth, because the colors really make a lot of sense. I own n.6 for myself, which is a beautiful shade for light Caucasian skin, a perfect …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

Jun/10/2013

It wasn't the right formula for me. After quitting BCP my skin became quite oily again, I bought this foundation around the same time not realizing the switch that my skin was having.
The colour match was good, and the finish of this foundation is lovely. Medium coverage with a satiny finish, albeit I wouldn't call it neither sheer nor glowy. I have to say it's not the most …

I wish I discovered this in my teens, when I had really bad acne that made me very self conscious. No wonder this is a staple in Charlotte Tilbury's kit, I'm considering adding it to mine as well.
In a nutshell: covers ANYTHING and still looks natural, even in daylight. It's very longlasting and can be also just mixed into another foundation for added coverage. I like to do a …

Liquid - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

Jun/10/2013

This is a really lovely foundation!
The thing that impressed me the most is the buildability. With an exceptionally thin texture, one layer provides sheer coverage, while 2 or 3 give a really nice medium coverage that never looks cakey. The finish is VERY natural and almost invisible, I wish it was more matte but I do have oily skin. It feels super lightweight, really can't feel it on …
