I love this foundation! I buy at least 5 new foundations every year to try...and this one tops the list! For reference I am Asian, golden toned medium skin and I got shade 6.5. My skin is normal to slightly dry (due to Retinol use) and I use moisturizer with SPF underneath the foundation. No need for primer. This stuff floats on then sinks in. I work as a surgical nurse so I wear a face mask at …Read more

Sunscreen - EltaMD - UV Facial Broad Spectrum SPF 30+ Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen

I just got this (having already tried the UV daily SPF 40 and the tinted SPF 41) and I am really liking it! It has a really moisturizing base, without feeling heavy or greasy! I use it under makeup. The texture reminds me of La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 15 (which I love but not high enough SPF for me)! I use retinol treatment every other day, so that tends to dry out my skin, especially around my …Read more

Hmm, maybe its my hair type, but I really like this product! I am Asian, with straight fine below the shoulder length hair. My hair has been highlighted this summer, and whenever I use this, my frayed ends are smooth, my hair is soft and light and bouncy. It really nourishes my hair without weighing it down. I really like it. I use about a dime size and warm it in my hands and spread it mostly on …Read more

I love this sunscreen!! I've tried all kinds (Coppertone, L'Oreal, Neutrogena) but this is by far my favorite. It's very lightweight, feels like a moisturizer not a sunscreen! I would not use this for sports or heavy sweating (it doesn't seem water resistant). I use this in the morning under my makeup.

Pros:
-It's UVA/UVB broad spectrum with 9% …

I have three of these!! Love it for my fine Asian flyaway hair...I have lots of broken strands on my part and my bangs and this works great at taming them and making my hair shiny without weighing it down. Love love love it. I will be so sad (and stocking up) if they ever discontinue this product!!

I love this product! So far, I have Shade #180 (Mauve Dream) and I just got #130 (Refreshing Red) and they are the best stains I have used by far! (I've tried Stila, Vincent Longo, Maybelline's pen version, NYX that I can think of). It has a angled almond shaped applicator which is not entirely spongy but not plastic either. Hard to describe. The product itself really does stain the …Read more

I really wanted to make this work after reading about it in a woman's magazine! At $20, the mascara is quite steep compared to drugstore brands. Although it doesn't clump or flake on me, it eventually leaves raccoon eyes on my lower lids after a few hours. The search continues for a HG waterproof mascara...

I've been using this for a few months and it's a HG eyeliner for me! So easy to use, the pen doesn't dry out, skip, flake, etc. The liner goes on smooth, a true black, and it's easy to line closely using this. It's waterproof, doesn't smudge or flake or wear off! Love love love! I own two of these, both black, to have in all my cosmetic bags!

My Holy Grail foundation! I've tried almost every brand out there. For the record, I have normal skin, yellow undertones, and I wear NC 30. It blends beautifully and covers my redness and leaves my skin slightly matte but not dry looking. I don't always dust loose powder on top. i love the pump dispenser, its much easier to control than the matching concealer. the formula is lightweight …Read more

The product is really great. Coverage is really smooth and it blends easily. I have the matching foundation. My Holy Grail and I've tried a lot of concealers to cover my redness!! I just hate the dispenser, it does pump out too much and ends up a mess all over the cap.
