Foundations - Morphe - Fluidity Full-Coverage Foundation

5.0

4 months ago

My skin is early 30s, combo bipolar oily and dry with fine lines. This is my holy grail, I will not need another foundation unless my skin changes. It’s decidedly matte and I am a convert. Medium coverage but buildable to full. I found it works best on skin that is exfoliated. I hydrate with oil (The Ordinary Resveratrol), use a silicone primer (The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension), and apply with …Read more

Foundations - essence - Fresh & Fit Awake Make up

This foundation only has four shades and somehow, amazingly, I found a match in Ivory. I am fair with strong yellow undertones, which rules me out of a lot of brands. For the record, I exfoliated prior to wearing it and used a hydrating primer. I did not set it with powder.

I was hoping for a cruelty-free radiant finish foundation with buildable coverage and this fits the bill. I had …

Scrubs - Shea Moisture - African Black Soap Facial Wash & Scrub

4.0

Look, straight up... had to knock one star off because this is marketed as a scrub. If it hadn't been, I'd give it five stars.

My skin is VERY combination- majorly clogged t-zone and chin, dry cheeks with expression lines, and just beginning to mature.

This, as a basic cleanser, is really nice! It doesn't irritate my skin, dry it out too much, and leaves it …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

May/11/2018

This foundation is not suitable for my drier, 31 year old skin. Like the Kat Von D foundation, it is too matte. Love the coverage, and yes, it does last all day. I am mixed and the shade Gobi works for my porcelain olive skin. The bottle will last a long time because the pump dispenses a tiny, pigmented amount that covers almost my whole big face. Also because I avoid using it. Even over a …Read more

Foundations - wet n wild - Mega Cushion Foundation SPF15

Apr/08/2018

I grabbed this on a whim because I needed to be somewhere and didn’t have time to go home. Glad I did. This was cheap, cruelty-free, and convenient.

It covered my rosacea scars, which is impressive, but for acne you might need a concealer. The SPF15 is also welcome. I purchased the Ivory shade which is nice and yellow enough for my eurasian skin.

The finish is satin, and …

They just expanded their shade range. So I went to try. I'm usually the 2nd lightest color in a foundation range and have yellow undertones. I went with shade 00B.

h.o.l.y. g.r.a.i.l. I can say this after trying Mac, Estee Lauder, Kat Von D, Loreal, Maybelline, Wet n Wild, Cover Girl, Lancome, and more

Finally... a full coverage CRUELTY FREE foundation for dry skin …

BB Cream - Dear Klairs - Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream

I found this BB cream thanks to Makeupalley! I was blown away by the 4.4 rating (which is unheard of) and ran to Amazon immediately to buy a tube. The price cannot be beat, and it showed up at my house in 3 days.

This bb cream has medium coverage, on the sheer side. It doesn't totally hide my broken capillaries or dark circles but definitely blurs everything to the point that I …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I am going to keep this short. If delicate, fluttery black lashes are what you're after, this holds a curl well and looks pretty. I like to wear this to work when I don't want to look over the top. It has the added benefit of not smearing all over your lower lids. It's a solid mascara, I jut like more drama.

I much, much prefer my Essence Lash Princess mascara in the …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

May/07/2017

I think I figured out how to make this product work.

Okay, first off, this product burned like f***. I just needed to vent, k?

The first three nights were unbearable and I couldn't deal with it. I've had to figure out how to apply this properly and adjust my routine around it.

1. This is, so far, not a good product for daytime, as the grease never seems …

I just bought this and a slew of other products by The Ordinary.

I had a burn and applied a few drop of this to it. My burn is 50% healed overnight! Wow.

I am still testing this, but so far, so good. I just wish it would absorb in to my face faster.
