My thoughts: I heard a lot of great things about his foundation, but it’s very limited in shades. There is no shade that really matches NC25. They are either too light or not yellow and yes, you guessed it, pink aka OUR NEMESIS!
The Fair shade is yellow toned but its too light (NC15 or NC20). The Light shade would have been a perfect match for NC25, but it has a pink undertone.

My thoughts: The picture on the package is very deceiving; it makes you think this is the perfect eyeliner to line your water line and get that perfect cat-eye, Arabic eye look. Not the case! This eyeliner sucks! Yes, its dark, a beautiful black, but once the sharpened tip goes away, it very hard to get a thin line, unless you are looking for a thicker one. It doesn’t even stay on your waterline at all. As soon as you swipe it across and then do it again to darken it, the previous line you made, goes away and become streaky.
Not good for water line.
Good if you just want to line your upper lash line with it, if you don’t mind a thicker line.
This is one of the darkest black eyeliners I have ever seen. It is very pigmented and goes on smoothly. I have not had a problem twisting up the eyeliner. You just need to keep twisting...it takes a while, but it does come up. However, once it comes up, it will not go back down.

My thoughts: This is supposed to be the best sunscreen to use with makeup. Claimed to act as a primer for your foundation. My verdict? Yes, it’s good, but it oxidizes on me. I thought it could be my makeup, but when I skipped the sunscreen and put
on my makeup, it was fine. It also doesn’t make my makeup last as long as it does without sunscreen. I was disappointed with this product because Neutrogena is such a trusted brand. I really wanted it to work. I will try it again with my MAC makeup and see how it goes but my ELF Studio Pressed Powder oxidizes so bad when I put this on under it. It also leaves orange-y stains on shirts. Not cool.
Still gotta find my HG sunscreen. This isn’t it and its pricey, too.
