This foundation was EVERYTHING I hoped. First layer was sheer, natural, looked like skin BUT BETTER. Second layer gave me more coverage, yet my skin still has a radiant glow. It was enough coverage for my minor skin imperfections, although, I added a little more concealer for the dark circles, and a spot concealer for this very dark spot of my previous blemish scar. Unlike the Nars sheer …Read more

Dec/23/2010

Price $10! (Purchased from MUFE Boutique) For the longest time, I've been searching for a solution to store my stash. Mainly to put everything together, so I can see what colors I have, and helps me not to forget what I already had. This palette is so God-sent. It fits 50 MAC size eye shadows. FIFTY!!! (MAC's palette only fits 15, and that costs $14). 27 Chantecaille size eye …Read more

I totally agree that they should include a pump with this. However, I'm just telling myself that the pump is reuseable, so I'd only have to purchase the pump one-time. Having to purchase the pump makes me feel that Origins is cheap, and trying to make some extra money on top of the actual product... Not a good shopping experience. Thus, I gave a 4/5 on Packaging Quality.

It's been a month since I got my Mia. Let me tell you what a big difference it's been for me. I've moved down from full coverage foundation, to medium, to now I'm using TM. I had a lot of pigmentation / scars left over from breakout. Especially when it's the "time of the month", I'd get 2 or 3 zits. The cycle keeps going and going, so I've never …Read more

This primer is very similar to the Fyrinnae Velvet-Gel Silica Primer (texture AND usage wise). This is a water, silica base primer. It does control oils a bit, however, my nose is super oily, and the oil break through after 6 hours. The same thing happens when I'm using the Fyrinnae primer. It is silicone-free. On the plus side, the pearls cames out "semi-blended" with the …Read more

I find myself reaching for this EVERYDAY, and I'm not the type of person that does that! I get bored with my makeup after about 2~3 weeks, then I move on. I've had this for over a month, and I kept going back to this powder. It was originally purchased with the MAC pro long wear foundation, but I've already moved-on from PLW. However, this powder is a stable!

I recently rediscovered how much I LOVE these e/s. They just blend like a dream. I remember years ago when I can't really blend my eyeshadows right, and it just looks awful no matter what I do. These shadows were my GO-TO. It's easy, versatile, blend-able, and I even mix the colors layering it. I know that people talk about how mixing mediums + pigments is "just like the …Read more

I'm a huge chantecaille fan, so I gotta give this a try. I got all 3 (black, blue, green). I line my waterline almost everyday. I love the look and it's almost a part of my makeup routine. The only down side of lining waterline is that it doesn't last from morning to night. At some point of the time, I would have to clean up the smudge with q-tips, and re-line. This is the …Read more

Oct/02/2010

I am switching from Nars sheer glow to this. I LOVED SG, however I hate the fact that I have to keep track of my shine. I can wear pro longwear for a straight 10 hours knowing that I don't have a shinny nose and forehead. I do have combination skin. My cheeks are dry, but my nose and forehead is very oily. At first, I find that I have to blot my nose after 5 hours. so I tried a …Read more

Very nice foundation. I used this with my beauty blender sponge, and I just LOVE the finish of this foundation. I have a lot of hyperpigmentation on my face, and this baby covers them ALL! I don't even need concealers. (It saved me a lot of time in the morning). I put a thin layer of this all over the face, then go back with an extra layer on my cheeks, where all the imperfections are. …Read more
