I bought this awhile back and mind you i have combo skin, but for it to say its shine control? I got so oily from this that i felt it on my face. I like the coverage but thats about it. Overall i think with the powder it didn't help much with mattifying, I will not repurchase
Liquid -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup

I like this product.. but in the summer or warm humid climates its not good to wear at least for me. I wore it today for the first time and it is supposed to be oil free well It was greasy on my skin and melted off my face, and Iam combo dry skin. I think it would be good for dry skin but ppl with oily skin this might make you more oily. Overall coverage was ok but i think i will use foundation for evening and stick to light mineral makeup and tinted moisturizers.
I like this powder because it has great coverage and To me this is a dupe for the MAC studio fix powder. For the price you can't beat it... This is probably the only covergirl powder I will use.
This is a total grease slick! I used to day in the morning thinking that ...ok this is natural looking when i put it on which in fact it did. But to my surprise like a couple hours later, i started to feel like an oil slick. It felt heavy like i was wearing lard on my face. I couldn't wait to come home and take it off. i have never experienced a light foundation like this. I do like covergirl products however, I use the natureluxe or the new covergirl tone rehab which i do like because you can't feel it on your skin. I don't know why i went back to buy this again. I knew it had mineral oil in it and i think thats what contributed to my oiliness in my T zone. Dont waste your money on this formula. I think people would do better the sensitive skin formula. I am swearing off the clean collection and staying with what works. :(
i just found these lip butters at my local walgreens to say that they just got them they had a deal buy one get one half off. im wearing the peach parfait right now. So far I am loving them!! They are hard to find because of all the good reviews.. i bought 4 ... Go out and get them there delicious! The wear time is good,it makes your lips real soft you wouldn't believe its a balm. i also use the baby lips which are good too but these for me last a little bit longer.
Foundations -Cover Girl - Covergirl and Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 Foundation
liltweety 12/22/2011 9:32:00 PM
I am always the one on the hunt for a new foundation. I recently saw on Facebook the new makeup that is coming out in January, well to my surprise i found the new foundation at my local Walmart. They do have testers at Walmart so you can see your shade. Well the shades i saw are buff beige, creamy natural, classic beige, creamy beige, nude beige and classic ivory. I tested it out on my jaw and i want to say, it has a lot of similiar qualities to the covergirl age defying makeup in the pump. It has the same exact scent and the consistency is the same the only difference is the swirl of Olay serum. It seemed to go on smooth but I will keep you updated as i use it.
i thought I was try this tinted moisturizer well, I took it off as soon as I got home. It was too greasy, and I never had to wipe my face during the day with any TM but this one I did. I won't be buying this anymore.....
i like this product because when you pair it with a concealer it looks dewy, great for the summer.If you need more coverage this isn't for you.Its sheer but has enough coverage to even out skintone.
Primer/ Corrector -Philosophy - The Present Clear Makeup

i think this primer is better for mineral makeup only because when i used with liquid it does however fill in lines and wrinkles but i think its more matte and it made me look like a powdery effect. It didn't look right on me. I am going to try it with mineral makeup. I am going to stick with my dewy finish not matte... I will keep you updated.. Anyone had this problem??
ihave been using this fpr over a year and i wont use anything else. alcohol free is the way to go!!! other toners make my skin tight and dry.
Liquid -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20 (2009 formulation)
liltweety 8/2/2010 1:00:00 PM
I just bought this at my local drugstore where they had a buy one get one half off, well here I am sitting trying to figure out what shade. So I decided to take the shade that i used for cover girl which was classic ivory and try to match it well i wa back and forth and discovered that nude was my shade. so i was skeptical thinking that i was deceived by the lighting but too my surprise when i tried it with a foundation brush it totally disappeared into my skin. I was so amazed how natural it looked.. i will tell you its light to medium coverage but I really don't think i need to add powder to it because it looks so natural, but that is your preference. You can even use your fingers to blend too but again its your preference. It has spf20 which is a big plus for me. So for those of you who wear covergirl foundation and want to match a shade try that method. I am not for sure because everyone is different but it worked for me maybe it will work for you.... But i will update you... update:it is still good but just keep in mind it might accentuate fine lines if put too much on
I had bought this cleanser and I am not to happy with it because of how it dries my skin still even after i washed. It just feels too tight on my face knowing that I have combination/ acne prone skin. I don't think that it will do anything for my pimples though either.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash redness soothing cream cleanser
liltweety 8/30/2009 11:03:00 PM
I have this and scrub for at night, I gave it 4 lippies because i think that when I first started using it, for example the cream cleanser, well it seemed to tone the redness quite a bit but the acne seemed to clear up some but this is the reason why i gave 4 lippies instead of five. All it did really is clear it up a little, but I did notice the redness went away more than the acne itself. Will update----
Well i got this sample from Ulta and i have been wanting to try it but the thing is I have combo skin and i wanted to see how it would cover especially with acne prone skin. I t covers ok but you have to use more of it. For some reason I am on the fence about this product because i constantly had to cover my blemishes, which only have a few but still I like the original so far, seeing that this is sample ill go back to it again, but I don't think Ill purchase the full size.... I will keep you updated. OK, I definitely will not buy this in full size . i am using the MAC moisture tint and MAC mineralize skinfinish natural which suits me fine.

i used on my whole face before but now i just use around my eye area as a concealer, becasue i really don't need it on my whole face, but it does smooth out my fine lines and also i use primer, becasue it will be smoother finish. If i need to use it all over my face , i will use it but right now this is real good for a concealer!!
