Sheer, natural weightless foundation with a glowy and radiant finish. Not full coverage but kind of buildable to medium. It really does look like your skin but better, which is my favorite type of coverage. I love the feel and finish, but took off one lippie because the staying power is just so-so on my combo skin; 2 hours til shine and 4/5 hours before I need to touch up. I also need 2 shades to …Read more

I love this formula for my aging, combination, light tan Asian skin. Lightweight, demi-matte finish with almost flawless coverage; think 75% opacity when I applied with a fluffy dome foundation brush and 100% when I tap on with a dense flat brush in red spots. It is so lightweight and looks like perfected natural skin. I plan on rotating this with my current HG Hourglass Veil Fluid for office …Read more

One of the few cream blushes at the drugstore so I was drawn to it and I am pleasantly surprised for this $6 purchase. It's honestly identical to Tarte's Cheek Stain: same quality pigmentation, longevity and also, stickiness. Not a terrible thing for my dry combo complexion, but might look too shiny for those with oily skin. I purchased in Pop o Peach and it is a lovely natural warm …Read more

Concealers - Glossier - Stretch Concealer

I'm a fan! This is an easy pot concealer with medium coverage and a dewy finish. It's a great dupe for RMS Uncover up for half the price. If you have the RMS, this has less coverage but is far more moisturizing. If you have MAC Studio Finish, this has way more slip and is sheerer as well. The Stretch Concealer is ideal for my combo-dry skin in the winter, when I want to wear as little …Read more

Tried it Dark for my NC30 neutral tan Asian complexion at the NYC store and wore it for the day. While the ingredient list might be different, this formula is identical to MAC Face & Body. The watery texture, extremely light coverage and buildability is the exact same. I love this type of sheerness and very natural finish; expect shine after 3-4 hours. It is a "no makeup" look, dewy …Read more

Nov/03/2016

A beautiful, satin finish almost-full coverage foundation that feels weightless with true all-day staying power for my aging, combination-oily 37-year old skin. It smooths, perfects, renders pores invisible and looks natural yet flawless. This is my new HG 100%. It has a thick and fluffy texture and one almost-full pump gives a very polished look with medium coverage. Think perfect interview …Read more

Oct/03/2016

I have repurchased this moisturizer 5 times so this definitely works for my dry combination Asian 36-year old complexion. It is a nice, basic moisturizer with no preventative aging benefits except for providing moisture which I guess could prevent wrinkles, but the texture is great with no added fragrance and I much prefer tube packaging so I continue to buy it. I go through a tube every 3 months …Read more

Oct/03/2016

I used "Sew Me" (peachy shell pink) and true to its claim, this polish lasted and lasted without a chip for nearly two weeks. I am too cheap and impatient for a gel manicure. With Essie Gel Couture, I only got a new manicure on day 11 because my nail beds started growing out, no tip-wear or chips whatsoever. I bring my dog to work, I cook, don't have a dishwasher and work a desk …Read more

2 months of use and I feel smooth, glowy, with no irritation or peeling! After stopping Retin-A last year, I have been searching high and low for an effective non-retinoid based exfoliant that could be a possible substitute. This is not 100% as effective as retinol, but it is the closest and doesn't make me long for my Retin-A! A first! Pretty pricey for a drugstore product, but not as …Read more

Sep/01/2016

Caramel Kiss = MLBB perfection on my pigmented lips, MAC C4 / Nars Barcelona neutral light tan Asian complexion! Many "natural" lipsticks tend to be too brown or too pink and end up a little too dark or ashy on my lips. This color is the answer; pinky, a touch beige, and a semi-glossy finish. It is pigmented, creamy, and truly feels like a lip balm, moisturizing and smooth. It is my go …Read more
