For reference, I am a MAC NC30 (medium with warm undertones). I have this in the shade "Golden Beige."

This foundation has received very good reviews on Youtube; however, my experience with this foundation was not that great. While it has a great finish and medium coverage that's buildable to full, I found that there are two major issues with this foundation: lasting …

For reference, I am a MAC NC30 (medium skintone with yellow/warm undertones). I have this in "Everyday Mattes."

The name implies that all the shadows in the palette would be all matte; however, some of the colors do have a bit of shimmer/sheen to them. The six shades on my skin tone show up as follows:

Shadow 1: Eggshell white with subtle shimmer. This one is …

This cold cream is fantastic and does an excellent job at removing sunscreen and makeup. I was getting clogged pores/break outs because my cleanser was not sufficient enough to remove everything off of my face. Once I started using this cold cream, my skin has started to clear up again and has become smoother/more radiant.

Each jar is ~$3-$4 and you get a HUGE amount. A jar can last …

For reference, I am a MAC NC30 (light-medium skin with yellow/warm undertones).

Red Velvet is described online as a "A deeper red suitable for every day wear. This neutral undertone red looks wonderful on all skin tones." In my experience, this color is more accurately a subdued red with a warm/pink undertone. On my medium, golden skin, this red pulls more pink/berry, which …

In the bottle, the color looks quite dark; however, on the nails, it is lighter. On my MAC NC30 skin (light to medium skin with warm/yellow undertones), this appears as a very warm red that is almost burgundy. In some lighting, it looks like a true, dark red; however, in most lighting, it looks more like a burgundy/berry color. I was hoping for a more deep, true red color; however, I still get …Read more

I am specifically reviewing the shade "01 - Always Red"

Pros:
-Excellent Color: On my NC30 skintone, it's really difficult to find a red that shows up as a true red. Most reds on me pull burgundy, pink, or orange; however, the color of this lip stain is excellent. It's a true, bold, medium red. It's become my benchmark in terms of how I want a red to show …

This is a review for the larger sponge only. After dropping twenty dollars only to receive a dud beautyblender (wouldn't stay wet, super dense, ripped after first wash), I decided to give this blending sponge and the Real Techniques one a try. I ended up loving this sponge more than the Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques sponge. It blends everything beautifully and leaves behind a …Read more

For reference, I am a MAC NC30 with strong yellow undertones. I have normal but acne-prone and sensitive skin.

I like this highlighter but I'm not in love with it. It definitely gives that Instagram glow which is something that I've never experienced before with any highlighter I've bought previously. It's very intense so if you're not into a super intense …

I'm a MAC NC30 and I got the shade Medium/Tan. This foundation is great for the price. It has medium coverage and a nice, natural matte finish when applied with a damp beauty blender. The only cons are that there is a limited shade range and no oil control. On my skin (sensitive, acne prone, tendency to get oily around nose and in between brows), it breaks down after about 5-6 hours of wear …Read more

I bought this after seeing the hype about it. This has great coverage and lasting power; however, the foundation makes me break out. I thoroughly remove all my makeup at the end of the day using the double cleanse method so the breakouts were not due to the poor makeup removal but the foundation. I wanted to love it but it didn't work out. I wouldn't repurchase and caution those with …Read more
