I have acne-prone normal skin that varies from dry (winter) to semi-oily (summer).

- Will last all day IF i use it correctly (see Cons)
- Perfect medium coverage
- Great yellow undertones
- No breakouts

CONS:
- I CANNOT use ANY dewy …

Brows - Maybelline New York - Tattoo Studio Waterproof Brow Gel

An angled brush and spoolie is necessary because the applicator isn't the best, but I really love the product itself. I use the tiniest amount to brush through and it leaves a great natural tint, and I use the brush to fill in the rest. I personally prefer more natural looking brows and it's very easy to do so with this. Again, with your own spoolie :)
It lasts all day which I love …

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional Face Primer

Jan/12/2017

Bought the sample size of this and the Smahbox primer from Sephora,and this is definitely my HG. It's very silicone-y, and has the distinct "pore hiding" texture. I use this on the apples of my cheeks, nose and a little bit on the middle of my forehead and chin (basically only the places where I have pores). I have combination skin, and these areas tend to be oilier than the rest …Read more

This is probably the worst BB cream I've ever tried lol. I have acne prone and combination skin, and I have yellow asian undertones for reference.
This is a very liquidous product, and there aren't a lot of color options. I got the medium color and it is VERY VERY pink toned so I can't believe I used it for so long. It initially feels moisturizing and kind of nice, but it …

This is such a great blush. I'm acne prone and have combination skin, and I'm very yellow toned. The peachy color and the very fine gold shimmer looked very natural and made my skin glow.This is a pretty shimmery product so if you like matte skin finishes I wouldn't recommend this.

This is highly pigmented so you don't need to apply much, and it's crazy because …

This is a fairly good primer for the right skin type, which is DRY. Very wet, very moisturizing consistency. It's pretty good for a drugstore primer over all but I do have to say that depending on what kind of skin you have you're either going to love it or hate it. For reference I have combination skin.

PROS:
I'm personally into the dewy, natural looking skin …

I ran out of this awhile ago and am recenty going to go out and finally get another one.
I bought this along with the line's very popular dipbrow pomade to try out both very hyped up products. Out of the two, I loved the browbwiz A LOT more, although do keep in mind that I prefer tp keep my brows looking natural, only filling in sparse areas here and there to even them out.

I …

Dec/29/2016

Used an entire bottle of this and immediately switched. I have combination and acne prone skin and although it didn't break me out, I just hated the way it felt on my skin and more.

PROS:
- Definitely a medium to full coverage.
- The color match for me was PERFECT. I'm very yellow toned and it's usually hard for me to find the right shade but the Y255 was …

Dec/29/2016

I've been using this foundation for a few months now and I absolutely love it. I have combination skin and although this gives a very natural/dewy finish, it has performed very well on both the oily and dry parts of my face.

PROS:
- Probably the most lightweight foundation I've ever tried. It feels great.
- Very good at evening out minor discoloration and looks …

I've been using this mascara on and off for a couple years, and let me just say that putting on this product makes my eyelashes look the best that they have ever been- INITIALLY.

I love how this coats the lashes. It gives both length and volume, is pretty buildable and with a careful hand can be completely clump free.
But what I can't stand is how much this thing smudges …
