I’m surprised by all the negative reviews. I have used this twice now. I’m 23 but have some grays. I mix the shades medium brown and light brown to get my color. I haven’t had any issues covering grays. However, I’m young so maybe that’s why. I like this over clairol natural instincts because it doesn’t leave my hair as dry and is easier to wash out. I just shampoo once. With natural instincts i …Read more

Shade: Fawn

On my fair skin (cover fx n0), this is more like a cream bronzer. Slighlty disappointed. I was hoping for something more cool toned. Next shade up was too dark. However, I still enjoy the product though. I like to use it as a base for my powder bronzer. It’s actually a very similar in tone and color to the new milani powder bronzer in the shade 02. Lasts well. Blends …

I’ve been using this as a day cream and I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s a more rich version of their moisturising cream and reminds me of the Olay micro sculpting cream. I do slighly prefer the olay, hence the 4/5 rating. I like the moisture this provides my dry skin and do think it’s been slightly brightening. Oily skin may not like this. It might be too occlusive. Perfect as a day cream for my dry …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Pore Filler

I like the finished effect and the primer does do a good job of filling in pores, but I want more! I just feel like this doesn't do enough. Additionally, I don't like the texture. It's airy and reminds me of mousse or foam. I find it makes it difficult to use and to properly press into the skin to fill in my pores. I think I would prefer a stiffer formula, like a cream. However, I …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel

I'm surprised by all the subpar reviews! I think most of them are due to user error. Firstly, make sure you have the right version that says it's for extra dry skin. Secondly, I learned on twitter from @makeupforWOC that an occlusive moisturizer should be placed on top of this. I also make sure that my skin is damp from a hydrating toner before I apply. I have noticed increased …Read more

Love this cleanser! I use this at night after using an oil to remove my makeup and/or sunscreen. My face feels soft after using this and not stripped of its moisture while still giving me a good cleanse. The product feels very moisturizing and I like the pump packaging. My brother is on accutane and I got him a bottle to use. I have not heard any complaints from him. The price is right and I will …Read more

I like using this as a day cream. It's moisturizing, but not too much for day time. Sunscreen layers well on top too. At night, I like to mix this with some of my face oil to create a sleeping pack to use in addition to a night cream. Works well to keep my skin moisturized. My brother is on accutane and I gave him some to use. He had a dry patch on his forehead that was sore and this cleared …Read more

Highlighters - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Diamond Bomb Highlighter - How Many Carats?!

This highlighter reflects the light so well. It has no back pigment and has fine, sliver micro glitter throughout to give the skin a wet sheen. The texture is similar to a colourpop super shock shadow. I prefer to use it as a highlight topper right on the highest point of my cheekbone. It gives me that extra oomph that I sometimes crave. It doesn’t look glittery, crystallized is a better word …Read more

I was so excited to see this come out. It’s hard to find brightening under eye powders for pale skin. I have the white shade. Previously, I was using stargazer white powder. It was really thick and looked cakey. This one is lightweight and less pigmented. It’s pigmented enough to brighten, but not look chunky. I like to set my under eyes with a loose translucent powder then put this on top. I …Read more

Lip Gloss - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - GLOSS BOMB Universal Lip Luminizer - Diamond Milk

This gloss is clear with a sliver shimmer. It can look white on your lips if you apply too much. This would look ashy on deep skin. I love to wear this if I'm going out and not wearing any other makeup. My lips look plump and juicy. It also makes a good lip topper because it has no pigment, just shimmer. I would recommend putting it on your hand then applying it to your lips. This way you …Read more
