I love this. At the moment my skin is normal to oily in the tzone with one or two hyper pigmented spots but overall clear and even skin. My problem is usually with lasting power (I want it to last 9-10 hours in heat and AC) and how the product sits on the face with textural issues (flakes and raised bumps). This stuff evens my skin out and LOOKS natural, though it leans dewy. I did have one very …Read more

This stuff is dirt cheap and yet easily wins "the top 3 foundations in my routine" trophy. So good!

Finish is very natural satin after a few hours for my normal skin but goes on matte. Thin. Ultra lightweight. I can wear it alone or layer over any primer.

No clogged pores. No reactions.

It also holds up well in 95 degree and extreme humidity. I moved …

This stuff works. End of story. I waited until I finished my first bottle to write a thorough review.

1. Unscented. Expensive. Pump bottle. Resembles water. I use two pumps because it has a shelf life of 3 months, and I use it on my neck also. It's slightly sticky to the point where you have to wash your hands after, but isn't heavy on the face.

2. I saw full …

I'm on a very low buy/no buy at the moment but by recommendation of the board, needed an AHA product that could chemically exfoliate the nasty flakes on my nose and dry patch on my cheeks asap. Seeing as I don't have KP or very dry skin on my body, I figured that the trial/travel size of this stuff would be more than enough for my face. It's a higher percentage (12%) but I use only …Read more

First of all, this is a foundation that is PERFECT for dry and dehydrated skin. If you're oily, why are you even buying this sans research in the first place?

I find that when I'm combo to oily, this slides right off. When I'm truly dry/normal, this stuff lasts for 6 hours easily and even longer if I set it down with a powder.

I also enjoy it for the rich …

Feb/20/2014

I was kindly gifted this mascara by a fellow MUAer and I have to admit it's a lovely mascara. At first, the wand seemed gimmicky to me and as I researched it was a volumizing mascara. Nah. I don't think so. I have decent length and volume lashes from using latisse, so I can no longer comment on how it works for sparse and super thin downward pointing lashes.

For the moment …

This is the biggest hyped thing since sliced bread in the 2014 world.
First of all, loads of women are screaming it may be a dupe for its prettier and rich cousin Benefit Porefressional. It's not.

Sure, it slips and slides like silicones. It's kind of powdery and baby-friendly. But I didn't exactly feel like it reaffirmed any love lost between me and primers. As a …

I had gotten this in a swap out of curiosity to see how it performs next to macs version. I am very fickle with how much coverage I like, so I swapped it away again. It was a very enjoyable foundation to use when I had it, but I felt like something more heavy duty for the wintertime.
This week I had gone home to my hometown for xmas and the only foundation I packed (mufe hd) was too dark …

This has been a lifesaver this winter. My T-zone is bipolar, being very oily in the summer and deathly dry in the winter. I flake and peel madly. This winter, however, having recently moved to LA, the drier air has not been kind to me. I noticed my laugh lines looking much more prominent, as if I had aged overnight. At first I freaked out and started using a mild retinoid everyday, but it …Read more

As I get older, I am less sure about calling my skin normal. Now with the LA weather, my skin is oily as hell in the summer and dry and parched in the fall. I have oily spots and dry spots. My nose often shows it first.

This primer, although smelling like tiger balm and green Asian holy oil, makes foundation on flakes look like butter on a biscuit. Smooth, no lines, and no dry flakes …
