Unfortunately, this is not the shade I would have picked out for myself- unless I’m using this lip product over a liner or another lipstick, it is way too pale. That being said, the product is super hydrating and feels nice on the lips! Well worth a little elbow grease to get it to work for me.
Right off the bat, know that this is a super gorgeous shade of highlighter! I both mixed it in with my foundation AND applied it as a highlight in order to test it to the fullest capacity! Personally, I liked it better when mixed in with foundation as it provided a lovely lit-from-within glow. I had a bit of a gaff and forgot to apply my highlight before my powder, so I did experience some breaking up along the nose. I also had some difficulty blending out the highlight for the same reason. I'm definitely putting this down to user error, though! TLDR: it's beautiful when mixed with foundation, apply as highlight BEFORE powder!
While I'm not sure this is the most brightening shade for my (very pale) skin tone, the staying power of this concealer is unbelievable! I have two tests when trying out concealers: under eye and around the nose. For my under eye area, it creased about the same amount as Tarte's shape tape on me (my lower lid has creases without any product, soo). For around my nose, I have a HUGE problem with products breaking up, especially in the summer. THIS magic, though, stayed on all day! TLDR: Great concealer, not super brightening for pale girls.
This overnight mask completely plumps, smooths, and soothes my skin! The first time I used it, I woke up the next morning like "wait, is that really my skin?!" Basically, it's super good and requires minimal effort!
I recently re-discovered this toner, just in time for summer! It's definitely a refreshing spray and a great toner. It reminds me of an ocean breeze, smells sort of salty and makes my skin feel as happy (but not as dried out or sunburnt) as a day at the beach!
I love this mask! It's especially refreshing when left to cool in the fridge before use! That's not even mentioning how great it leaves my skin feeling which is absolutely amazing 😊 I affectionately call it my flubber mask
I picked up two shades of this (101 and 100) at my local Walgreens because they were 50% off and I assumed 25 claimed hours of wear time miiiight get me through a few hours of crazy Boston heat. THIS FOUNDATION IS AMAZING. Not only is the coverage amazing, it also stays PUT. I normally have trouble with foundation separating around my nose and forehead in warmer weather and there is zero of that here! Plus, it layers ridiculously well with powders. It's all I've been wearing on repeat (hellooo my new makeup-centric insta @smilingrid_makeup) and I don't see it changing anytime soon!
