I really like it!

I'm oily, ~NC20 and I got this in the shade Light. It goes on beautifully, the shade matches me (it's definitely on the warmer side), and the coverage is nice (about medium). It has a slightly watery consistency, I tried this with a sponge and a brush and I think it looks great either way.

My ONLY complaints that are:
1) It does not work with …

Eh, I'm not a fan. I have oily skin, NC20~, and I got the second shade (Aqua Neutral).

- Wear: It does not control my oils. I get oily after about two hours of wear, and after that, I need to blot and powder every two hours or so.
- Application: It goes on so streaky with a brush, yet so sheer with a sponge. I feel like I can't win. I use a brush and then go over it with …

Terribly irritates my eyes and under-eyes. It creates a burning sensation and makes my eyes watery. It's good for removing makeup on the outer face perimeter, but I'd avoid getting it close to the under-eyes. It's also has too much fragrance in it. If you want to try these, I'd suggest getting the travel size pack (30 sheets), or just avoid these entirely. I won't be …Read more

First of all, I'd like to say that if you have oily lids and you're considering buying this as a primer, forget it. It doesn't work as a primer at all, and in hot weather I sometimes feel like it does the opposite since it has a thick formula which makes it crease like hell.
However, it is excellent for covering up the veins and creating a smooth surface to apply the …

I've had such high hopes for this one. I have minor acne spots and scars, nothing too terrible but I still prefer to conceal them. I read that this product is capable of covering tattoos, so I was eager to see how it would conceal all my tiny blemishes. Spoiler alert: it didn't. This products literally sucks. My acne is honestly very very minor, with hardly any texture, and I still …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 212 Flat Definer

Hands down the #1 brush for me to apply shadow as a liner on the lower lashes. It's so easy to create a precise and thin line with this brush, and it's very soft and gentle on the eyes. For the lower lashline, this one blows the 219 out of the water.

This brush changed my eyeliner game. Before this, I used MAC's 210 and 212 and had terrible results. I swear I was almost ready to give up, and even gave one eyeliner away to a friend thinking I won't ever use it - but then I was searching for a concealer brush, stumbled upon this one, and saw that it was recommended as an eyeliner brush. Boy, we are back in business! This brush is …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #219 Pencil Brush

Ugh, what a bad brush. I'm a mac brushes junky and this brush is by far the worst in my collection. It's scratchy, it's too thick to use on the lower lashes and honestly, it's just not worth to be called a mac brush. I tried washing it with a baby shampoo and it did soften up a bit, but it's still too scratchy. Absolutely terrible.

So happy I purchased this, this mattifies my oily skin immediately upon application. I'm n18 in mac's pro longwear and ecru/desert beige in Double Wear and this was a match.

UPDATE: I kept it in my purse and one day it completely shattered :( I've since "fixed" it twice with alcohol but it won't stay, it just cracks again and again.

UPDATE #2: …

I recently bought Laguna Beach and Bel Air. I will start by saying that you MUST place a lip primer/balm before using these, as they look awful on dry lips.

Laguna Beach - 5/5! I LOVE this color! It's a beautiful warm pink and it compliments me so well. It reminds me a bit of MAC's Mehr, but Laguna Beach is warmer and slightly lighter. I love it and would definitely …
