I chose the shade Beige Medium Light, but I think I could actually do with mixing it with the shade down, Beige Light. My skin tone is exactly as Antonym describes my chosen shade for - "Light to medium with neutral undertones" - but it's a tad too dark for me. Admittedly, I am on the fairer side of "light to medium" than I am the medium. 

I managed to lighten it up where needed with my Hynt Beauty Concealer Light and blend it out thoroughly, but I need another shade to match my skin tone.

Other than choosing the wrong shade, this foundation is brilliant. 
Medium coverage, with a satin matte finish, I don't look flat or dry but know my makeup will stay put all day. My skin wasn't in the best shape the week I took these photos, but this foundation did a pretty good job at covering most of the problem areas. I did need to go in with a concealer afterwards in a few spots, but overall I really like the coverage and finish this foundation gives.

It blends out really quickly and easily - there's no fuss or tricks to making it 'work' - which I love, because who has time to fuss around for a perfect base? It also lasts all day without breaking down like some liquid foundations can. 

Some of the key ingredients in the Skin Esteem Foundation include Hyaluronic Acid, which keeps skin hydrated and protects against free radicals, Shea Butter to moisturise, smooth and soften Jojoba Oil; a liquid wax that is easily absorbed and provides a silicone effect. Sweet Almond Oil protects the skin with exceptionally elasticizing and emollient properties and Sunflower Oil is rich in Vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant; helps improve skin health and regenerate cells.

This foundation is also coconut oil free - which is good news for those who find their skin doesn't work so well with it!

My experience with many eyeliner pencils (green or otherwise) has been a drag. They literally drag across the eye, are difficult to get decent pigment from or a precise line. 

The Antonym Natural Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Brown is the total opposite. Creamy, richly pigmented, it glides onto the skin effortlessly to create a precise wing or tight-line the lashes. 

The pencil has a SUPER handy sharpener on the opposite end, which also has a separate cap - hooray!! I don't know why more pencils don't come with the sharpener like this if they are going to include one.

I tend to only line the top of my lashes or do a small wing. On occasion, I line under the lower lashes just lightly and blend out. This eyeliner blends easily enough with a small brush if I want to soften the line - great for a smokey eye!

It doesn't run if wet, but I wouldn't say it is 'budge-proof' because it will smudge if you touch it, although the colour stays just as intensely pigmented all day as it looks when you first apply it. I set it with a touch of powder and it seems to last well. 

If you wear your eyeliner in the waterline, however, it isn't going to run or fade on you and that is where the waterproof factor really comes into play.

The Antonym Baked Blush is in the most gorgeous mirrored compact. I'm a very tactile person, and I love the feel and look of the bamboo - even if it isn't as slim as my other compacts (it would make it tricky to travel light).

I chose the shade Peach, which is a really beautiful warm true peach shade. It doesn't have the pink undertones many peach shades do. Absolutely gorgeous for Summer! Or if you are more of a bronzer girl, wanting to try blush, this would be a good shade to start with.

The blush is a creme formula that has been baked - so it's quite intensely pigmented, and not drying or flat like mineral blushes can be. 

Aside from looking stunning in the compact, the baked powder is extremely light and silky. It has a satin finish - not flat, but not dewy either. It looks very pretty on the skin!




Above, I'm wearing:
  1. Antonym Skin Esteem Organic Foundation in Beige Medium Light
  2. Lily Lolo Flawless Matte Setting Powder under the eyes, nose chin and t-zone
  3. Hynt Beauty DUET Concealer in Light under the eyes, and to spot conceal
  4. Hynt Beauty Cream to Powder Brow Definer in Taupe
  5. Antonym Organic Baked Blush in Peach, applied to apples of the cheeks & crease of the eye
  6. Lily Lolo Pressed Eyeshadow in Ivory Tower, applied all over the lid
  7. Lily Lolo Sculpt & Glow Duo Highlighter applied to tops of the cheekbones, brow bone, nose and cupids bow
  8. NUDUS Lipstick in Dreamtime
  9. Hynt Beauty Nocturne Mascara
All applied using MOTD Cosmetics Brushes.


Overall

I'm really impressed with everything from Antonym. The packaging is beautiful and thoughtful, the formulas are very clean and the products feel gorgeous on the skin. The only negative I have is I chose the wrong shade foundation! It is a beautiful product, especially for those that like a satin or matte finish.
