I was very disappointed with this mascara. While it does give sparse lashes like mine a good coating, it's very wet (takes ages to dry once you put it on) and therefore smudges very easily.

I was looking for a cheaper replacement for my HG mascara - Estee Lauder Double Wear but this fell so short it's not even in the running. And once on, it doesn't last all day. I …

I do love the colour of this lipstick (NC 15-20 skin). It's natural and very work appropriate. It's long lasting but has a very rich creamy finish. My only gripe with it is that it leaves my lips quite dry and if I leave it to sit for 4+ hours when I do wipe it off, my lip kind of exfoliates a little...

What a fabulous product and especially the price! I have sensitive hormonal skin and I get little bumps under my skin and blackheads from clogged pores. This moisturiser does not contain SPF so does not break me out. It works as a great base under foundation - no primer needed. From various trial and error, I find it works best under Clinique's Even Better - it doesn't settle into pores …Read more

Skin: dry combination, sensitive and prone to hormonal breakouts. Unfortunately I reacted to this foundation. When I washed my face at the end of the night, there were visible red spots which will usually turn into pimples overnight. So unfortunately this foundation is too strong for my sensitive skin. I am very sensitive and so far only Prescriptives' Virtual Skin and Clinique's …Read more

My skin: dry combination sensitive skin prone to hormonal breakouts (yes...high maintenance and a royal pain in the butt). Colour is NC12-20. I am using the colour "Light".

This concealer does not cake, has great lasting power and is a good fit colour wise. My biggest compliment is that it covers red very well (especially when a blackhead extraction has gone terribly wrong) …

Skin: NC15-20, sensitive, dry combination and prone to hormonal acne. Pores easily clogged.

On my never ending search for a new HG foundation. I stumbled across this one. I don't usually use Chanel as I am concerned with my sensitive skin. But after rave reviews I gave this a go.

I bought the satin smoothing in 20 Clair which was a little too dark. Very comfortable …

Eyeliner - CLINIQUE - Quickliner for Eyes

Brilliant product - does not irritate my eyes - I use it on my waterline, colour is beautiful (dark brown is rich and deep), no sharpening needed - just twist. Most importantly, it DOES NOT SMUDGE throughout the day - 14 hours of continuous wear and it goes on very softly - does not pull. It does take a little effort to get it all off but it's worth it to not walk around with panda eyes …Read more

I was given this as a present and it's been sitting in the back of my drawer. My usual Maybelline gel eyeliner ran out and decided to give it a try and I was not disappointed. Once I got over the initial setting up of the pen (same concept as a fountain pen with disposable/replaceable ink cartridges) I loved how versatile this liner is. The tip reminds me of a Chinese calligraphy paint …Read more

With heavy heart I write review another failed BB cream. Sometimes it seems like I will never be able to find a BB cream that provides coverage and won't break me out!

I bought a sample pack from Sasa and this is the first one I tried from the pack. My experience:

# Immediate breakout - I have had it on my face for 16 hours and by about the 8 hours, pimples were forming …

Jun/17/2014

Such a pity. I had a really good experience with the ceramide capsules so took the leap of faith and bought the foundation.

To be fair since coming off the pill, I have broken out from nearly all foundations and it's just a matter of how big the break out and what type. My skin is sensitive, dry combination, colour is NC 15-20.

The EA sale consultant used their …
