This is probably one of the worst foundations I have ever tried! The colour oxidized so bad, it became at least two - three shades darker after a couple of hours of wearing it. It was extremely blotchy and difficult to blend and did not work with neither a beauty blender nor a foundation brush. It was sliding all around my face during the day even after setting it with my usual loose powder and highlighted every single pore on I had. Usually, I do not like wasting a product and would find some use to it, but this went straight to the bin.
This is my favourite eyeshadow palette by far! For someone who is not particularly good at eye make up, I have far too many palettes, however, this is the one that I would always prefer over any other ones! The colour selection is great as you can create both warm and cool toned looks, the pigmentation is very good yet it is hard to overdo it and you can blend it all out very easily. The colours do not fade and do not smudge at all. It will probably take me years and years to use this up, but I would definitely buy this again!
It is indeed very pigmented, however, I find that the colours tend to fade away after a couple of hours wear. Eye make up is something that I hate doing and will probably always be bad at, but this is quite easy to work with and you really cannot go wrong with the shade selection! There is no significant fall out and the formula is very buttery! Oh and the packaging! So simple yet so lovely.
Now, I am absolutely rubbish when it comes to any eye related make up! Whether it is a smoky eye, a cut crease, not to mention eyeliner. I do have hooded eyelids which makes it quite difficult to wear a cat eye and I simply envy people who can pull it off. I tried quite a few different eyeliners to master at least the very basic, thin top line and always failed... Tip too fat, tip too small, texture too watery, texture too thick - you name it! Eventually, I came across Stila's eyeliner and never looked back! I love this so much! So easy to use, so long wearing and so matt! Definite repurchase.
I purchased this hoping for something very exciting after reading/hearing so many good reviews, but it was a no go from me. The colour and coverage were good enough, but I found it quite cakey and difficult to blend. It did not sit well on my skin and highlighted all of my pores. The under eye area started creasing within a couple of hours and eventually looked as if my make up was two days old! The price is very good, yes, but essentially, it did not help my look in any way!
Why have I not purchased this before?! Even though the colour range is not ideal and even the lightest shade is quite dark when I am at my fairest, I do very much love this product and would definitely buy again. The texture is very lightweight, but the coverage is great. It does not crease nor does it run around my face once settled with powder. It is very long lasting as I do use it to highlight the bridge of my nose which is a greasy problem area for me. I can get away without touching this up for around 6hrs!
I tried to love this concealer so much, but our relationship broke down after I gave it a second go! Even though the coverage is very good and it did highlight my under eye area very nicely, I found the texture quite dry and difficult to blend. Although, I do have to mention that I generally prefer concealers that are quite "wet" and slide around my face quite easily. Also, I somehow feel that I did not get that much product out of it as the more and more I used it, the dryer it got. I would not repurchase this based on the price and texture.
I do love the formula and the colour range as I am a fake tan junkie and do tend to change my complexion quite a lot! The coverage is very buildable if you are looking for a flawless finish, however, if you prefer to be a bit more light-handed with your base, you would still see your natural features such as freckles etc. My only niggle with the product is the packaging! Would much prefer a pump of some sort to save me spilling too much product and having to dab it off around my neck.
Even though I have purchased and re-purchased this product, I cannot say that it is my favourite micellar water to use to remove my make-up with. It does the job, it does not break the bank, but does not leave my skin as fresh as I would like it to be and I do feel the need to rinse my face with water immediately after I use it.
