Mar/20/2018

Let me start by saying this product is very expensive (CDN$70). However, a little goes a long way and it goes on beautifully. It feels luxurious, blends well (I just use my fingers), covers my rosacea, and gives a healthy glow to the skin.

It's great that this has SPF. However, as with any foundation with SPF, If I'm going to be out in the sun I always wear a layer of SS …

Eye Shadow - Juvia's Place - The Magic Eyeshadow Palette

Jan/06/2018

This is a beautiful palette full of cool colours (for a change!!) that are buttery, frosty, and very easy to use. So far I have used 4 of the shades to add a shimmery accent on top of matte eyeshadow. I simply swipe the pan gently with my finger and pat on the centre of my lid, and the result is very pretty. The only negative aspect of the palette is its huge size. They probably could have made …Read more

Jun/27/2017

**EDIT - I've fallen out of love with this. It doesn't have a lasting finish at all, and it's too complicated to use compared to my beloved Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation.

I've been trying to wear less makeup as I get older, and especially now that it's summertime. My skin is in decent shape except I have mild rosacea, large pores on my nose, and an …

Dec/14/2016

I am pale with mild rosacea, combination skin (oily nose, some dry patches) and overall sensitivity. I asked my Japanese coworker to pick this up for me this past fall during her Japan trip.

The texture is incredibly gentle and even soothing. It's a joy to apply, and not sticky at all which is something annoying about my usual European sunscreens. It absorbs easily and has no …

I love this. It leaves my skin really soft and is very gentle. I'm not sure how much brighter my skin is for using it but the softness and clarity in my skin is enough for me!
I took one lippie away for flawed packaging (it tends to leak around the pump mechanism) and a strong smell but it's still worth it IMO. The smell fades after an hour or so.

Cleansers - LANEIGE - Laneige Foaming Cleanser

Jan/02/2016

This is a lovely cleanser that feels really luxurious. I only use a tiny amount each time and that's more than enough to adequately cleanse my face and neck. When applied to dry skin it effectively removes eye makeup (though I haven't tried with waterproof mascara). At first it feels creamy then it foams up slightly. Rinses off easily and has a mild pleasant fragrance that does not …Read more

Jul/12/2015

I have a lot of redness in my T-zone area and my skin is dry-combination. Definitely oilier in the summer. I am pale with neutral undertones (MAC F&B N1, L'Oreal True Match N1). I use the Very Light shade. Initially I was super disappointed to see how yellow the product was when I first tried it on my hand. But when I applied it to my face it did a great job concealing the redness in my …Read more

May/07/2015

I am so torn about this product. I have been using a mini-tub (GWP) of this for several weeks (the dry-combination SPF 15 version) and I've been quite pleased with it as a daytime moisturizer. My skin glows and feels soft. No breakouts and no dry patches. But now that spring is here I realize I am kidding myself if I want sun protection. SPF 15 isn't enough. I expect that adding SS on …Read more

This is a lovely medium taupe-grey. The finish is slightly glossy, which I like. I wish it had just a touch more purple in it, then it would be perfect for me. I am not much of a nail polish-wearer so I just applied 2 coats. No base coat, no top coat. Didn't chip for 3 days, which is good IMO.

I received this in a swap after doing some research and deciding it would be a good match for my skin tone and more hydrating than the Pink formula. I also looked into how to differentiate between authentic and fake Skin79 BB creams. Here is a good explanation on how to spot a fake:
