I love this foundation!!
My only complaint is that the lightest shade i can buy in Sweden is F1 and it's about one shade too dark. I tried a lightner but it negatively affected the fornula too much.

The consistency is creamy and goes on smooth. A pump and a half is plenty (i apply with fingers first then work in with a beauty blender). The finish is the most flawless …

Foundations - Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2017

I used a foundation matcher to determine my shade (I wear C1 in MAC face & body, or NC 20). I was recommended shade 1.2 and i bought both the neutral and yellow tone.

These foundations are VERY full coverage. Granted, the shades were wayyyy to light for me, but when I applied with a beauty blender, they had a very "mask-like" finish. I'm oily and these made my skin …

Liquid - The Body Shop - Shade Adjusting Drops - Lightening

1.0

Jul/06/2017

Terrible product! First of all, the packaging is absolutely atrocious. The dropper is ridiculous. It does not suck up enough product and when you try to dispense the product it comes out in splatters so you can't dispense the proper "drop" amount.

For the actual lightning function, yes it does lighten (it is white with a slightly pink tone). But as the amount is hard to …

Treatments (Eye) - Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

Oct/07/2016

I'm starting to wonder if Kiehl's makes their products to be addicting. I've never been an eye cream user because I've never really had any issues in that area, but I figured I'd try this because someone was raving about it. Now I'm on my third pot (each one lasts about a year!). Whenever I forget to use it under my eyes don't appear as nice.

It has …

Moisturizers - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream

3.0

I have combo skin, which is red and sensitive, and this stuff is so "neutral" that it never irritates or breaks me out. It's light and non-greasy, but still moisturizes well.
My only regret is not buying the SPF version.

I am on my second bottle of this stuff, so I must like it ;) I use it after washing my face in the evening. If i forget to put it on directly after washing and my skin has dried, it does not sink in, and then just feels greasy.

I think the thing with this product is that I don't notice a big difference when I use it, but I do notice a big difference when I DON'T use it. If …

Masks - LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask

This mask is a toss up for me. I wouldn't run out and buy it again when it's gone, but I do like it. It's not HG material. It doesn't work miracles, but it does give a nice boost of moisture, especially in the colder months. The first few times I used it I was annoyed because it never seemed to fully dry/absorb and my cheek was sticking to my pillow case, but then I cut the …Read more

Revlon Colorstay was my HG for 15 years. Then I moved to a country that doesn't sell it. I have spent the last 10 years trying to find a HG. Maybe it's age and the changing of my skin, but finding my new HG has proved impossible. I had high hopes for this one. I have Rosacea and the SA told me that LM is designed for that, so I went for it even though I am not a fan of mineral …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Super Slim Eyeliner - Intense black

I found this to be one of the better pen liners I've tried. I don't wear liner everyday, and I don't do a dramatic wingtip, but I found it went on easily enough. As some have pointed out the tip dries more quickly than the middle, but I store mine pen side down between uses and I start at the center (with the middle of the pen) so this hasn't been a problem for me …Read more
