although the 4 hour claim is absurd i have to admit that as a treatment this has proven beneficial.

used as the packaging suggests would be terrible for my skin type so whenever a breakout starts i use this only 3 consecutve nights - any more than that i worry could cause unnecessary irritation. those three nights are typically enough to encourage faster healing so long as i treat …

pros:

- creamy formula that is easy to apply without pulling the skin.
- looks very pretty on its own or with a shadow layered on top for a more pronounced look.
- cool toned taupe with grey shimmer.
- flattering without looking stark (on my very fair neutral undertone skin and hazel green eyes)

cons:

- IME all UD pencils seem to need a night in …

this is just a beautiful shadow, one that seems to translate across most (if not all) skin tones sympathetically. applies smoothly, easily, and supremely blendable. the pearlescent effect in this is not chunky or heavily pronounced yet it gives the most luminous duo-shimmer look. you can wear a light wash on the lid to make your eyes pop, you can layer it for a more pronounced look, and it is a …Read more

been using this religiously and exclusively for years thanks to the good people of MUA. this is honestly the best brow product i've ever used, from budget to high end. even when i try other brow pencils i keep coming back to this one. this is one of the few cosmetic products i go out of my way to repurchase before running out. one pencil lasts me between 4 and 5 months. keeping it in the …Read more

(for reference: Nars shade Siberia/MAC Studiofix Powder N3 & NC15/Makeup Forever 113 Neutral Porcelain)

i've purchased this five times in Light 44. the coverage is excellent for my needs when i want more coverage than the above mentioned products. does not irritate or clog my combination sensitive reactive skin. rather pricey for a powder foundation but given how well it …

very high coverage if any of the tones work for you. covers imperfections well. useful for sharpening brow makeup if you use concealer in your brow routine. for the price, i can see why some people enjoy this concealer.

on me it translates as a dry formula; it pulled at the skin around areas applied. even the palest shade offering is rather dark which made the concealer shockingly …

Apr/25/2018

this was meant to be a perfect match for my skin tone and type. it is neither. i would not suggest this foundation for anyone that has sensitive, reactive, hormonal skin nor would i suggest it for pale complexions due to the choice in undertone pigments (and i generally use yellow toned foundations but this stuff was big bird level. just no.)

the foundation irritated my face so much i …

said i'd buy this again but i've had this for 3 years and haven't even gotten close to putting a dent in it. very rich deposit of colour time and again.

i wear either N3 or NC15 in studiofix powder (depending on the time of year) and Satin Taupe plays beautifully with my very fair skin and hazel eyes. it blends like a dream, no fallout (which is saying something for a …

densely pigmented. i find the best way to apply it is with an angled eyebrow brush. it can come off quite harsh on people with sparser eyebrows if you're aiming for a natural-ish look. it's nowhere near as precise in application as i'd hoped using the pencil alone.

like others i found this difficult to sharpen even with the MAC sharpener. putting the pencil in the …
