This just does not work for my hair. I wouldn't necessarily say I'm protein sensitive, as I have used tons of other products with protein in the past without issues, but this formulation did not make my hair happy. I could tell upon first use, while still in the shower, that this would be a miss for me. I tried it two wash days and had the same results. Even after my hair was dry …Read more

Holy cow. I was in the market for something similar to my usual HG EL Double Wear since my shade changes in the summer and I wasn't looking to shell out the price for a darker shade and was recommended this as a DS alternative. You guys...I think I like this more than the ELDW.

I'm 29, acne prone, oily t-zone with texture from that lovely adult acne and this stuff sits on my …

This is everything I wanted the Becca brightener to be - and I really enjoyed that product and hit pan. This gives me more coverage with the same life. I like a hydrated looking under eye, so I don't set this with power and it lasts despite usual creasing which I can blend away throughout the day. The lightest shade works very well for my fair, neutral skin tone. My dark circles are DARK and …Read more

HG right here, and I've used a ton of foundations throughout the years. I'm 29, oily, with texture from acne/pores. This sits wonderfully on my skin. I can wear it alone or over a more dewy primer. It applies well with just my fingers and I have no problems with it looking lifeless or too heavy. It's also very long wearing without having to set with powder.

Great shade …

I like this, *when my skin is clear*. It doesn't have the coverage I need when my skin is acting up. With that said, it's a nice product. I'm oily and this is comfortably hydrating. It blends in very easily with finger tips and looks super natural. Doesn't emphasize my texture or pores. It's an easy, no fuss product. It can be matted down with some powder. I'd like …Read more

This just doesn't work for me. I'm oily, 28 with some texture. As a setting powder over foundation or TM it looks nice initially but slides off my face once my oil breaks through. I have the same result when used as a mineral powder foundation. It's super smooth, blurring and a nice product overall - but if you're oily, I'd keep your receipt to be able to return if it …Read more

HG. I have been searching for the perfect moisturizer for my oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. This is it. Comfortable, calm, moisturized skin. No greasiness, no breakouts, no irritation.

I haven't been this wow'ed by a mascara in a long time, and I'm the type to have a dozen mascaras in rotation at a time. This really does make my lashes "huge" and quickly. I mean, with one coat my lashes are very, very black, thick and lengthened. I like this for an intense lash look. This isn't something you're going to get crisp, defined lashes with.

This is, by far, one of the best, if not the very best, powder that I have ever used. I have oily, acne prone skin with a good amount of texture that powder can emphasize. This stuff sets my base without any sort of caking or powdery-ness. It's matte, but with life. It's super finely milled and almost blurring. I'm fair, and pick up no discernible color on my skin. It definitely …Read more
