Purchased Moonlight Shimmer which appears as a very light taupey brown with champagne gold flecks on my NC15 skin. This looked like the least intense in opacity and glitteriness compared to the others. I like quite a minimal look and I like to use this on it’s own or applied over the top as a gloss. I prefer this much more than the Stila liquid eyes as they are too much for me (I’m in my 40’s …Read more

This is a great color correcting cream. It’s very tacky and thick. A little goes a long way and it takes a bit of blending to get the color to blend with my skin tone (I’m NC15 for reference). I’ve inserted a SplitPic of before and after photos of me wearing nothing except the Cicapair, taken in natural light with no filters or makeup. I have a bit of redness in my cheeks and nose and it covers …Read more

Unusual cream foundation which can be tricky to apply to the face. It needs warming up so applying with fingers is helpful. It has a slightly dewy, very natural finish. I am fair with neutral undertone and a NC15 in MAC. I matched best with Lightness - the lightest shade. NW15 is close to Like Porcelain. If you’re NC10 both will be too dark.

I’m really enjoying this cream foundation …

This is weird voodoo magic in a bottle. I still don’t know if I like it. It’s a grey-white cream that on contact with the skins changes to a bronze, shimmery primer. Wayne Goss did a inciteful, positive review on it and even applied on camera it had a noticeable effect on his skin.

I am 40 with normal sin, nc15-20 with minor fine lines and minimal pores. The bronzing effect is …

I prefer this cream over the Protini peptide cream I have normal skin with minimal lines. It’s fairly rich but it doesn’t clog pores. Since my skin is normal I tend to only use this at night like a mask. During the day I can get away with hydrating serums and a moisturising physical sunscreen.

I love it. First time I’ve used a facial soap in 2 decades (the last was Clinique and it was awful). It’s gentle, removes almost all makeup, doesn’t interfere with my lash extensions and isn’t drying.

I’m switching over from chemical to physical sunscreens. Although I prefer the application of the chemical this is great as a somewhat natural physical sunscreen. It does leave a white cast on my skin but when I apply foundation over it’s not a problem. I haven’t noticed any pilling when layered but I do leave it for a good 5-10 mine before starting my makeup routine. Nice big tube (90 ml) so …Read more

I like it. I’d reluctantly repurchase again as although it’s very expensive I’m lucky to have a healthy budget for skincare & beauty products. Surprisingly I had to build up tolerance to this even though I used a fair amount of acids previously. It applies smoothly, doesn’t interfere with my other layered products and exfoliates the skin a treat

I have normal skin, fine lines and some freckles and this provides good coverage without looking heavy or cakey. It doesn’t settle into fine lines and has a smooth I’m an nc15-20 with neutral-warm undertones and I purchased no 4 which I reckon is nc20. I’ll attach a pic of swatches. It is very similar in colour to the Tarte Shape Tape hydrating foundation in fair-light neutral and the Bobbi …Read more

I love this stuff. It’s probably my holy grail of concealers which is annoying as this can’t be purchased yet within Australia. I’m NC15-20 and Light is great as an under eye concealer. Light-Neutral is my skin tone so great for blemishes or disguising redness.
It doesn’t cake, accentuate fine lines , and lasts all day. It also works well with other products.

I find that the new …
