i have this in the waterproof version cause my lashes cant hold a curl for crap with just a regular mascara but anyways it did keep my curl but after awhile it started to smudge and flake at the same time! ??????? why??? i dont know. i did like the brush because i like big brushes but i didnt notice any thickness or length i think it's just a regular old mascara. oh and it didnt help with fall outs like with my eyelashes from falling. i do however like how black it is though. will not buy again
Lipstick -Revlon - Matte lipstick in Mauve It Over

this is a really pretty color. this is the first lipstick from revlon and love it. at first i didnt like it because it washed me out alot but that was because i used to much. if i just dab it on it leaves a really pretty rosy like nude color on me and i like it. i think it's perfect for a natural look or if you have a smokey eye going on. as far as it being moisturizing not really but it's not that bad but some lip balm before wouldnt hurt. really recommend it!
Foundations -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Glow Sheers SPF 30

i really wanted to love this and i dont have it anymore because i returned after the day i bought it. ok so ill start off with saying what i did like about it. 1. the packaging is very sanitary and i love the squeeze tube you can control how much product you use! that's all i liked about it! so now i will talk about what i didnt like about it. 1. IT HAS SHIMMER IN IT i dont like my foundations or blushes or bronzers to have shimmers! my lipgloss is an exception SOMETIMES and so is my lipsticks but for the most part i dont like any type of shimmer as far as those products go. 2. MADE ME SO OILY would not recommend for us oily girls! 3. IT TURNED ORANGE ON ME!!! 4. IT BURNED MY FACE WHEN I APPLIED IT!! i would not buy this again! of course i am aware that every product works differently on everyone but this was just my personal experience
i dont think this brush has ever shed on me! i like this brush alot and it's pretty affordable and i hate myself for saying this because i love all of my sigma brushes but this one is actually SOFTER than my sigma kabuki brush!! i use this with loose or pressed powders and it does bleed but not alot. will buy again and again!!
Love this bronzer!!! gives me a nice warm glow in the winter when im lighter and brings some warmth into my skin. now i normally dont like any kind of shimmer in my blushes or bronzer just how picky i am so when i bought this i thought i would look like noting but shimmer but when you apply it on your face it's hardly notciable which is great. the only thing is i probably would only use this for warmth on my skin and use something a little darker for countouring. overall love this bronzer and will continue to buy this again
i use this brush for my bronzer only. i really like it and i will buy more. one thing thats annoying is the handle is starting to get loose.
I really like this brush! it's super soft and they DONT shed!!!! how awesome is that?! super cheap and they dont even look like it. the only problem is that i may have to replace mine sooner that i thought because the handle seems to be getting loose and it's probably from washing them and rinsing with water so it runs down the handle and loosens the glue but i can probably just super glue it when the handle comes off but other than that i love these brushes!!! oh and i use this for blush!
i really like this eyeliner. i have it only in Bronze edge but im planning on getting the rest of the colors! it lasts all day practically and i have oily lids! the brush is really thin but i like it like that because i find it for me that it's easier to create thin and thick lines how i want! will be buying again!!!
i really like this blush it looks so pretty on me and you only need very little just to get a hint of color. you can bulid it up if you need too. it's a light pink color and i think it does change on everyone. there is no shimmer in this blush which I usually prefer and i think are the best blushes because i think blushes with shimmer kinda emphasize pores or blemishes on people so i go for the matte or satin blushes. i really recommend you try this.
ok so i bought this one from almay and revlon and they are both the same thing! i bought the almay one first and i did like it. it gave me good coverage and it fit my skin perfectly which the color i had was medium. i think this foundation is a little heavier than a tinted moisturizer but the coverage is light so it will even out your skin tone and hide some minor flaws but thats it! i did use concealer but only under my eyes. the formula is a little runny though and i wouldnt recommend you use it with a brush because i tried it and i didnt like so than i tried it with my fingers and i liked the result much better! so after awhile having it i tried it one day and it all went to hell! i started to look orange which at first when i bought it i didnt look orange. maybe it's from having it for a long time. anyway i probably will end up buying it again and see if it does that again.
this concealer is pretty thick but it's because it's heavy duty. i have this in tan. use a small amount it can cake. prep good and it should look fine. i like the little squeeze tube very hygienic. it is very cheap and you get ALOT of product. i swear i use this as foundation sometimes. overall i think it's worth a shot. but i wouldnt buy again just because i have other concealers that i like more.
Tinted Moisturizer -Christian Dior - hydra life pro-youth skin tint
CocoChaneljeanelle 3/16/2011 12:57:00 PM
I have this skin tint in #2. i bought this in the summer time at sephora because all of my other foundations where too light i was really tan than and much darker. i really liked it so much because it really evened out my skin tone and didnt break me out surprisingly because this tint moisturizer is best for girls who have dry or normal skin NOT for us oily ladies! it will make you even oilier through out the day. i actually like the scent of it cause to me it smells clean and fresh. it's expensive though $40+. i did like it and i will probably buy it again but in a lighter shade now cause i just got a lighter since its winter still. i really didnt like the packaging cause the formula would fun and get messy when you would open it there would be some product in the cap. overall i would buy again i just wish it didnt make me oilier so maybe i need a really good powder that would control oil hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. so yes i wouldnt recommend this for oily girls but if you really like it like i did and dont care that you have to blot throughout the day than go ahead
this is my first foundation from MAC let me just say. the lady from the store matched me up with NC40 and she was so wrong! Be careful when getting matched up for your right shade by one of the makeup artist. So i bought it and i was oh so excited to try it out that i didnt even think of keeping my receipt or the box it came and i sooooooo wish i did!! first of all when i applied it all over my face and neck i looked sooo YELLOW!! and i didnt even put that much on. so i went back knowing i couldnt return it and asked to get matched up again so this time another girl said NC42 would of been a better match. This really pissed me off but i should have kept my receipt. The formula is rather thick but i think it's easy to blend so i dont get why others say you have to work with it fast?? since the color is too yellow i have to mix it with another foundation that im trying to use up (Dior tinted moisturizer) cause its too dark for me and the color ends up ok. maybe if i got my actual right shade i would say different because i love the pump it's the color that made this not a good experience for me. i switched to revlon colorstay and I LOVE IT!! and the color is my actual shade (natural tan) and it comes in a formula for oily skin and it last all day!!! i said i wouldnt buy again because i like my revlon colorstay so much that i dunno if i want to purchase prolongwear again and colorstay is so much cheaper i just wish it came in a pump. i will just use up this mac prolong wear and maybe maybe just maybe purchase again and this time in my actual shade. oh and seem cakey no matter how much little amount i used
This is the very first product i have ever bought from laura mercier and at first i liked it and than i didnt use it for awhile and i forgot how great it was because i have so many concealers that i have to use up. just this past weekend before going out i was going through my pile of concealers and i found this way at the bottom and decided to use it again. i really love it because you can custom match to get your right shade. i use the lightest shade for my undereye to brighten and the darker to countour my cheeks and other areas. it dont look very creamy but once you put it on it blends pretty well (at least for me) i dont rub it in i just pat in on with my ring finger so it ends up looking good. CAN look cakey though if you put too much on so be careful. one thing i will say is im not a fan of the packaging just because i really prefer that concealers come in more of a hygienic package because i really dont like that you have you dip your finger into the product (to me your just asking for acne) but it hasnt broken me out just saying. i really like this concealer and i would but again once i run out of this one
i normally dont like pressed powders anymore just beacuse they can cake up pretty easily ( love loose powders) but for touch ups it's good because you can throw it in your purse and not worry about it making a mess. i got this in golden honey i believe and i like that it's smooth but it is way to dark for me so maybe i will try again in the summer when darker. as of right now im not using it so its just been sitting there in my organizer. doesnt help with oil either. so instead of giving it a 2 i give it a 3 because it didnt break me out while i was using. i think its just ok.
