This eyeliner is a gorgeous colour - it's a medium depth warm purple with lots and lots of shimmer. It looks great on my brown eyes but also imagine this would look awesome on green eyes. It can be smudged into a sheer wash or layered up (you need two layers to make it opaque). My criticism is in the delivery - it's a twist up gel-type eyeliner and so you really can never get it into a …Read more

One of the rare reviews where I'd actually go out and buy this product tomorrow if I ran out of it! I'm totally in love with this foundation for my long (10h) workdays.
This foundation is a matte, medium coverage foundation with some shimmer to it so that it looks like there is some glow on the high points of your face even when you don't have highlighter on. But don't …

I wish I could give this product 2.5 lippies because I think it is truly middle of the road. I bought two of the serum foundations, and two of the high coverage. I bought two colours of each because it's always so hard to tell online. I'm somewhere between NC20 and 25 right now but I have a LOT of freckles, and that makes me look darker even though my neck is quite light …Read more

I agree with the first review. My skin is sensitive and I was shocked at how hot and burning this gets. I knew it wasn't actually burning my skin, but the first time I used it I was quite alarmed.

You don't actually need very much of this. The consistency is like a sticky paste. You rub a thin layer all over your skin and it turns from clear yellow to white. Leave it on as …

I have been using this product for two weeks. I have a bit of puffiness, and some fine lines - those are what I'm trying to help. I would say that this is a unique eye cream because it's watery serum, not creamy or instantly hydrating in a traditional way. However - I'm really impressed so far. It definitely makes my eye area look plumper softer and more smoothed in the morning …Read more

I've been using this for about two weeks. It's a very watery serum that does leave a slight film on the skin. I usually use it after toner and essence, before other boosters and then I put on a cream or oil at the end which makes the film not an issue. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and it has not irritated me at all. It really does hydrate the skin, and brighten it. I would say it …Read more

This is a very unique cleanser. It feels like an oil-gel. It smells quite nasty - almost like vodka? It is supposed to be used on dry skin if makeup is present. It's not great at makeup removal. You use it wet if you're not wearing makeup- I prefer to use it in this scenario. It doesn't strip your face - in fact it's quite hydrating. It's hard to tell when its rinsed …Read more

I love this product. I'm so amazed it actually does what it says. I'm so happy it performs well. It is creamy but not slippery, pigmented, dewy, and I'm lucky but I got a fantastic shade match in 11. You can really layer this without it looking weird so it's anything from very sheer to medium coverage. It doesn't sink into pores or lines and is slightly plumping …Read more

This product is a freaking miracle. The surprise for me is that its a gel, not a cream. Is that why it works so well? Is it made of unicorn nectar? Who knows. Buy it immediately.

I got a sample of this from Sephora as a freebie. The lightest shade is lighter than NC20 - surprising. I mixed the lightest and second lightest to get NC20. It's a watery texture. It separates a bit in the packaging and needs to be mixed up before application. I tried to use a dense flat top kabuki and no matter how much I buffed it looked like a streaky uneven mess. But I went over with a …Read more
