Laura T.'s Beauty Product Reviews
I bought the Naked set, but should have gotten both! My last visit to Sephora neither were in stock. They are gorgeous and I love all the shades, after 6 months of almost daily use I still have over half of each colour left. They aren't great on the waterline, I usually just use them for upper lash line. Applies very creamy and then sets. Dust with powder to make it stay all day.They are smudgeable, but you only have a few seconds to work with them until they are set.
Natural, perfect glow!
I was hesitant because of the shimmer factor, but I finally broke down and bought it after years of hearing about the hype. I was put off by chunky glitter in bronzers in the past. The shade is perfect, and not orange or dirty looking on the skin (NC20 in MAC), I usually use it all over but have used it for contouring. Very finely milled and feels like a quality product. Will repurchase.
Light, dewy, but expensive!
This product was $42 at the Canadian Sephora store, so I had high hopes. The packaging is nice, although had stickers covering the "Broad Spectrum 20 spf" on the front and back of the tube as well as on the box, perhaps by Canadian guildelines this does not qualify as a sunscreen? It is easy to dispense and is easily applied with the fingertips. I also tried with the Sigma F80 but it seemed to soak up too much of the product. It is lightly tinted and gives the skin an even, dewy look. I did set it with powder as I am already super oily. It stayed most of the day and I liked the look and feel, as opposed to a full coverage foundation. It will be a staple for summer, but I will be back to my Mat Velvet Plus in fall and winter.
This primer doesn't feel greasy or over-siliconed, it goes on light and barely has any scent. I like it because it doesn't irritate my skin at all and the package is sleek and sanitary. It provides a smooth canvas for foundation however I don't feel that it mattifies my skin in any way or prevents oil breakthough. I will continue to try different primers.
A great palette! Contains colours to take you from day to night, very pigmented, creamy and long lasting when put on over a primer. My only complaint is so many very glittery colours, would have preferred a few more just frosted or matte colours. Some colours have significant glitter fallout. When I travel this is the only eye palette I take.
