My Opinion
As you can see from the long list of products that I’ve tried that I love this brand. The products are affordable and for the most part, really good. Their site says that face products are the fore and I have to agree. Their primers and setting sprays are bomb. Their HD Liquid Coverage Foundation has a great formula, but it’s a little too matte for my dry skin. If you have normal, oily, or combo skin, I think you’ll love it. I’m excited to try their hydrating foundation. I hope it will work better for me! Their Liquid Camouflage Concealer offers amazing coverage without being dry or heavy. They have expanded their shade range a few times, but there is still room for improvement. All of their lightest shades are still too dark for me. They definitely need to expand the fair and deep shade ranges. I also think they could add a more hydrating, not quite as matte setting powder. They do have a luminizing powder, but it’s not translucent and the shade is too dark for me. I think their blushes and bronzers are extremely underrated. The product offerings in Europe are far vaster than what we have here in the US. I hope they continue to expand their offerings in the States.
