Beauty Product Reviews
I am a fan of liquid foundations from dropper or from a pump, so I knew that the mechanism alone was going to work for me. I initially purchased SF08, which because I have neutral tan skin, thought would be the perfect color for me. However, it was slightly too light, so I returned the product and ordered SF09. Omg.....I have two other favorite liquid foundations that are my holy grails, but this surpassed both of them. I have oily/combination skin, depending upon the season, but it is typically dry here in Arizona regardless. I applied this foundation using a Real Techniques foundation brush, placing just a few drops into the back of my hand. I spray the brush lightly with prep and prime, and I couldn't even tell the difference between my skin color and the color of this foundation. I also could not tell that I had applied makeup to my face. It felt like my skin, but just silky. I always use a great primer first...I don't think it's necessary to do so with this foundation.....just habit for me to apply primer. I have occasional hormonal blemishes near the jawline, but they are covered immediately with just a few (and I mean four or five) drops. It's definitely buildable, and also has a pleasant smell that I cannot pinpoint, but not overbearing. The cost is irrelevant to me at my age (not old, just 40ish), because I'm looking for the best product for my skin. It doesn't feel oily, leaves a matte finish, but not cakey. SO, all that being said, clearly, I am in LOVE with this product. I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone looking for flawless coverage, which doesn't oxidize on the skin, and lasts a minimum of 8 hours. (I work 12 hour shifts.) No greasiness throughout the day. I can go on and on, but you'll just HAVE to try it for yourselves. Thank you, Beautylish, for carrying such am amazing foundation! I couldn't be happier! xoxo, K
I've heard that CHIKUHODO brushes were good, but this brush is AMAZING! The bristles are SO soft and it's just the perfect size for me to apply powdered highlighter to my cheekbones and bridge of my nose without too much product. I initially didn't want to use it....it's such a beautiful brush! But I caved in and was so impressed by the softness. The only reason for 4.5 stars is that it is just a bit pricey. However, I would highly recommend this brush to my friends and any other Beautylish lovers. Thanks, Beautylish, for such a great product!
This is my first CHIKUHODO Takumi shadow brush, and I was amazed at how soft the brush was on my face. I wouldn't consider it a shadow brush.....I think it's a bit large for that, so I use it to apply highlighter powder to my cheekbones. It is absolutely wonderful! I was hesitant to purchase a CHIKUHODO brush....you have to admit, they're a little pricey, but worth it. I recommend this brush to anyone looking for a high-quality brush, whether you're in the beauty industry or not. This brush is like gold for me! Thanks, Beautylish, for a fine product!
So I purchased this makeup bag, and clearly didn't look at the dimensions prior to purchasing. This makeup bag is huge! However, I wasn't disappointed and the quality of the bag is high-end. It is a bit pricey, but worth every dime. It's not a great bag for travel, but it fits all my excess makeup without a problem. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good-sized bag. It's even large enough to put hair products into it; perhaps you could use it that way for travel. Thanks, Beautylish, for such a great product!
