I really love this foundation from loreal. It has a semi matte finish and doesnt emphasize my dry patches and minimizes my pores. I feel as though its somewhat of a dupe of my Lancome Teint Idole 24H foundation. Im an NC40-42 and I wear shade 106 although i may consider purchasing one shade up next time.

Lipstick - ColourPop - Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick (All Colors)

I truly didn't enjoy this formula of liquid lipstick. The formula was very drying even on top of a clear lip primer and exfoliated/hydrated lips. I purchased the colors trap and tulle. Tulle was not at all similar to the way it appeared in the bottle and seemingly oxidized even while wearing. Trap was simply not flattering for my skintone but also emphasized all lip …Read more

I absolutely adore the elf smudge pots. They're so inexpensive and last all day on my very oily eyelids. I have all the colors and they are my go to eyeshadows over brands like MAC and makeup geek

I've seen very few reviews about this product on my skintone, NC42 and I find that this product is the absolute perfect product for contouring. It has a cool tone that still doesn't look ashy on my skin but it is far more subtle of a contour on me than on someone with a lighter complexion. I would not suggest this product to anyone darker than me as its already quite subtle on me. The …Read more

I was an avid believer in the dip brow in dark brown but I have thick bushy dark brows so using the dip brow everyday was taking away from my look rather than enhancing it. Using the brow wiz in dark brown I was able to fill in sparse areas without it looking over the top or making my bushy brows bushier

It's like liquid gold in a pan. The negatives of this product are definitely that the packaging feels cheap but the product itself is marvelous. This is my favorite highlighter for people of my skintone (NC40-NC42 Bobbi brown 4.5 warm natural) because of how much impact it has on the skin. I apply this with my finger and find that that's he best way to apply highlighter in general.

I absolutely love this foundation for my dry skin. I wear the third darkest shade Sand and I wear an NC40-NC42 in Mac foundations. I'm obsessed with this foundation in that it delivers true medium to full coverage without looking cakey and making skin still look like skin

This stuff lasts forever. I'm south asian and my brows are very dark but I use the dark brown shade as it creates more natural brow hairs. I have dark bushy brows but using this product allows me to create beautiful arched brows as if they were just full and in shape.

IMPORTANT CAVEAT: You must purchase the ABH #12 brush to utilize this product to its fullest potential as this …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

Jul/19/2015

This is one of the worst dry skin marketed foundations out there. I'll start with the pros because there aren't too many but NARS does have a great range of colors.

Now, this foundation is called "SHEER GLOW" but it is neither sheer nor glowly. It ends up looking very matte on the skin and is medium-full coverage. It emphasized every dry patch on my face and …
