I'll preface this by saying that I have NC-20/NC-25 skin that is dry, some freckles, light acne scarring, no redness, and beige undertoned skin.

I tried this product in the colour W3 and it good match for my winter skin. The coverage is very, very light. When I was swatching the sample on my arm in-store, I had to reply the swatch 3-4 times before I got a good sense of the …

Makeup Brushes - Quo - Powder Brush

Such an awful brush :( People who like this brush probably have never used a better brush. It's scratchy and sheds everywhere, plus it was way overpriced. I would recommend Real Techniques, Eco Tools, or any Chinese brand on Amazon over this piece of crap.

My skin colour is NC25 and I find this to be a beautiful and subtle illuminator :) It lasts a long time because all you need is a light dusting and it stays all day! The golden undertone might not be fitting with those who have olive or pinkish toned skin, but for neutral, beige, or yellow undertoned skin it should work very nicely! Just remember to blend it out and don't dig your brush into …Read more

This is incredible. I'm astounded. In drugstore makeup, the only available translucent powders are this one, Revlon Colorstay powder, Revlon Photoready powder, and Rimmel Setting Powder... but this one blows all of them out of the water. It's gives me perfect skin and a soft glow even under my harsh bathroom lights and it's an impressive and cost effective dupe to Makeup Forever HD …Read more

I bought the colour "Cool Nude" as I saw swatches online saying that it was a good dupe for MAC's "Faux" lipstick. The colour seemed nice when I swatched it on my wrist, but I disliked the plasticky taste and smell when I applied it. The colour wore off RIGHT AFTER I finished doing my makeup and left my house, even though I used a Maybelline lipliner and Lancome lip …Read more

I love these blushes so much. I'm accustomed to using blushes from Clinique or Nars but lately my wallet's been lighter than usual so I decided to buy some new blushes from the drugstore. I ended up choosing a medium-pink and a baby pink from Essence, which were named Babydoll and Adorable respectively. I was pleasantly surprised by the softness and texture of the blushes and how they …Read more

First off, the packaging is an eyesore. We don't need a scratchy little brush included in this powder and it just creates too much extra space once you take out the brush (and toss it right in your garbage). The powder itself is also so damn terrible - it's not translucent at all and it made my foundation 2 - 3 shades lighter than it actually is. The powder also clings onto fine hairs …Read more

This eyebrow pencil seriously sucks. The packaging is effective and useful, but the product itself is atrocious. If you have a light hand - no product is transferred. If your hand is just SLIGHTLY more harder, you'll get goopy bits of product all over your eyebrows that you'll have to comb out - which I guess is why the comb is included on this pencil. Maybelline's Define-A-Brow is …Read more
