So took me 2 times to get the shade right, the BAs in Tom ford aren’t the best at foundation matching... Initially I was matched to 2.5 linen. However as the foundation does oxidise slightly (maybe half a shade to 1 shade), so it would turn out too dark for me. They have just released some new shades for 2019, so I went back to try but there were no testers yet!! The BA this time matched me to …Read more

This. Is my holy grail foundation. Best foundation I have. It matches my Chinese skin very well, and the undertone is pretty spot on. Maybe because Suqqu is a Japanese brand, but it matches oriental skin pretty well. It doesn’t oxidise throughout the day either. It sort of blends into your skin and matches well throughout the day.
It gives your skin this glow from within, like baby skin …

This is a beautiful palette. The colours are very fall (probably due to the red) however you can use more of the gold/brown to make it more suitable for other seasons. It’s a really nice colour combination, quite popular this palette is. It can used daytime or nighttime - very versatile. The same usual Tom Ford packaging.
I am however not the biggest fan of his wet/dry formula hence only 4 …

This foundation retails at £46, whereas their extra rich cream foundation costs £64. This is a nice medium coverage foundation. Its a biphasic foundation, so you have to shake it before using to mix the oil and foundation together. I use it with their blooming primer, but can't comment on their primer (not sure how effective it is). With one layer its a quite sheer coverage. i usually use a …Read more

This is a great cushion product! I used to use korean bb cushion, they gave this really nice dewy glow to your skin, however the glow didn’t last, and the colour would turn grey throughout the day. None of those problems with this cushion! I have this in no.4 and its a good match for my skin. It has enough yellow in there to match my chinese skin, but not too yellow that it makes me look sallow …Read more

Must be on my 3rd tube of this. Definitely helps my eyeshadow stay on longer. How do I know? Well ive trialled it with and without. Without- my eyeshadow creased and faded, though fair enough I went out clubbing. But with it underneath my eyeshadow, there is minimal creasing in the inner corners, otherwise the colour is still as vibrant as when I first applied it. This is after at 8 hours when I …Read more

These eyeshadows have replaced the old blend colour eyeshadow. This new eyeshadow has slightly more product - 4.2g compared to 5.5g in the blend colour shadow. The price in the uk is the same, still £46. These products claim to be more pigmented, which i do feel they are. However these new releases do not have a matte shadow within. I really liked the matte shades in the old palettes as they sort …Read more

Sep/23/2017

At £35 this foundation is quite expensive for what it does. It has a sheer to light medium coverage. However it does give you this luminous glow when applied. I have this in the shade ivory, and its an okay match because it has a warm undertone. Because of how sheer it goes on, you can get away being a slightly darker. Though disappointingly this appears to be the lightest colour of their warm …Read more

A sheer to medium coverage foundation that looks quite natural on the skin. It gives the skin a luminous glow - not the dewy kind. I have this in the shade 3, which is an ok match for my skin. The undertone is more neutral than beige. I feel that the foundation actually gets a bit brighter just after applying before settling to a more luminous glow half an hour after application. I used it with a …Read more

I've heard great things about the colours of Bobbi Brown's foundations. Being chinese, I find it extremely hard to find a foundation with the right undertones; they are usually to pink even though its the most yellow toned foundation out of their collection. I got matched to number 3, which looked great in store, however when I went home and tried it on again under natural light, the …Read more
