This was the first foundation I ever used! The first shade I had wasn't right but I never seem to be able to find my shade in Maybelline products.
This is quite a dry foundation and dries out if you've had it for a while. It always accentuated my dry patches, especially around my nose. Once the foundation got quite old, the product used to bunch up into little balls on my face …

I wouldn't recommend this if you have sparse brows like me. There are some areas of my brows that this product just doesn't stick to, making my eyebrows look patchy.
The pointed end of the crayon is pretty much useless as there's no way of sharpening it so you just end up with a really thick blunt stick, meaning you have to carve out your brows with concealer to get rid of the …

I love this as my eyebrows are naturally quite flat - I have to pluck shape into them and then brush them up to avoid my brows looking like a straight line. This holds them in place for a decent length of time and the clear one can be used in conjunction with eyebrow pencils.
This brow gel isn't sticky and dries down fairly quickly without making my eyebrows look flaky. However, it does …

I've gone through a bottle and a half of this stuff, but I decided recently to switch to a different foundation.
It's fairly thick, but I still have to use two pumps to cover my face. It tends to separate throughout the day and it can be REALLY cakey! I wear glasses and it all comes off around where my glasses sit only a few minutes after I've applied it - even after priming …

Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder

This is the only powder I've used for a while, and for its price it definitely does the job. It's transparent, although this is a bit debatable for women of colour as it isn't completely transparent. It goes on nicely with a brush and seems to set everything in place well, but I also use a setting spray.
The only thing I don't like is that it's really brittle - even …

This is my holy grail concealer. Although it's fairly expensive for what it is, I find that one concealer can last me around a year, and I use it most days. You can literally cover anything with this concealer! I have rosacea on my cheeks and I tend to blush easily, but when I use this concealer no one can tell. It lasts throughout the day if set with powder, although I don't use a huge …Read more

I tried this after being a faithful user of Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, as I found it began to look a bit cakey and seemed to accentuate my pores.
I bought this one instead, and it's quickly become my favourite foundation! When used with a primer it can last for hours and is the perfect 'my skin but better' foundation with medium coverage without looking too cakey. One …
