Review | Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation

On the Smashbox website it says that it’s the secret to picture perfect skin. It claims to stay flawless for 15 hours, blurring imperfections, beeing sweat and humidity-resistant, transfer-proof, and a buildable medium-to-full coverage. As well as keeping the skin hydrated and shine free all day. I’ve been using the real techniques miracle complexion sponge to apply this foundation, because I find that it blends better then when I’m using a brush. It also stays on all day, but it may fade in your oily areas, so I would keep […]

Review | GlamGlow Supercleanse

The GlamGlow Supercleanse is a daily mud-to-foam cleanser for problematic skin. It claims to dissolve oil, makeup and impurities, as well as rinsing away pore-clogging debris and reducing the apperance of skin imperfections, leaving a mattified, super clear complexion. So I got this because I thought it would be comparable to the GlamGlow Supermud, and I’ve been using it every morning for several months, but I can’t say that I’m impressed. I thought this cleanser would help me get rid of any breakouts and imperfections, or at least make them less noticable, but I don’t see a difference in my skin at all. I do however feel like it makes my skin clean and smooth, but so does any other cleanser I’ve tried, so I don’t think this is worth spending your money on. I got mine from Kicks for 289nok.

Review | Bobbi Brown Corrector

The Bobbi Brown corrector is used for neutralizing dark undereye circles. On the Bobbi Brown website it says that it brightens and covers discoloration, it’s long wearing, creamy and easy to blend. It also claims that it won’t crease, is waterproff and sweat and humidity-resistant. So, I’ve been using this product for about 6 months and I find that it applies best if you use a small concealer brush to apply the product and then blend it in with your fingers. I would also recommend that you let it sit for a minute before you apply your concealer on top, because sometimes I find that the color of the corrector and the concealer kind of mixes together, and that can make some of your discoloration show through after all. However it does stay on all day without fading or looking cakey, and I haven’t had any issues with creasing while wearing it, but that may depend on what concealer you use on top of it, and if you set it with a powder or not. And I can’t really say anything about it being waterproof, but I can say that it’s water, sweat and humidity-resistant. So overall I do think it holds up to the claims, and it isĀ  a good product, but for me it doesn’t cover my dark circles completly, however it does make them a lot less noticable. I got mine from Kicks for 245nok. And it’s […]

Hello. I’m starting this blog to review products targeting oily to combination skin and other issues, such as dark circles, large pores, etc,and let you know what works and what doesn’t. On this blog I will mainly review make-up and skin care (both drugstore and high-end), but I might sneak in some hair care from time to time as well. I will try to upload every wednesday. And I also have to point out that I’m not a professional by any means, and this is just a hobby of mine.
