Well,I finally broke down and decided to purchase the starter kit(in light)and I am soooo thankful I did.But you know what?I like this foundation on better,when you use the pur mineral primer(I think there's 3 of them)I use the peach colored one,myself.So just go to your store and get checked to see what face primer you should use.Also,there eyeshadows are awesome!!!There crease less,and I have very oily eyelids.Im truly amazed at this line of makeup:)Good luck!
Another one here who absolutely loves this product:)With my matuer skin,its lovely to wear this now..in the fall-winter season,as my skin is combo-oily.Not sure if I could wear this in the summer..might stay on my face for 5 minutes in the heat..lol!Not sure if I even want to try.I bought this in classic ivory and wow..its soooooo much better than the covergirl one, one with the white swirl in it.Much much better!!Will I buy this agin..you bet! Update!..I Love this stuff!!Its been on my face so far for 10 hours today:)))
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara
MarianCan 9/14/2010 11:32:00 AM
WOW!!Talk about Falsies:))))This is the only mascara out of tons that I have tried..has given me,the falsies!!!!I just can't get over it!!I know I have done reviews on others and have liked them,BUT,hell,not like this one!!!!!!Now,THIS, is the look I have been wanting for a long,long,long time.If you havnt given this mascara a try,I would suggest you do so.I did use my curler and pumped up my lashes about 3 times then applied this wonderful gem to them..not sure what my lashes would look like without an eyelash curler.Since this is a wet mascara,I would also suggest to wipe off some of the excess gunk on the wand,I do that anyway,with all my mascaras anyway,but just saying:)Its an excellent waterproof mascara!!Give it a try ladies:) Forgot to mention that I did not use any eyelash primer with this mascara and also,I use a waterproof eyemakeup remover to remove this mascara with a round pad and douse it with some remover,and let it sit on your lashes for about 30 seconds or longer if you wish and it comes off nicely..no pulling or anything.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof
MarianCan 9/7/2010 8:58:00 PM
I just bought this mascara a few days ago and have been applying it about 8am and now here it is..almost 9pm and its still there.I had noooo idea that this holds a curl like it does.If I had know that,I would have bought this, sooner!Anyway..just my opinon..this mascara does not clump,doesn not smudge,and does not flake.Not much in the way of length(maybe a little more)my eyelashes are not long,by no means.But geezzzz,this mascara holds my curl!!!!!AND,after it being on my lashes allllllll day:))))I was actually puzzled,like..why?...lol!! I did purchase today at Walmart(the waterproof mascara in Full and Soft..just to compare.I have tried Lash Blast and its YUCK!At least on my lashes..lol!So wish me luck Ladies:)And oh yes,I will repurchase the Waterproof Great Lash:) Update..I tried this full and soft mascara and I dont know what all the hype is about it!I tried it today and the curl was already going down about 2 in the afternoon..where as the Maybelline Great Lash waterproof one,its curl held up to 9pm at night,from about 9am in the morning.

Oh myyy Gawd!I bought this eyeshadow on the weekend,and I just had to tell you,what happened:)I had read from another poster that these eyeshadows do not need a primer(I thought to myself,yea right!)So I decided today,in one of the hotest days of the summer here,to try out this eyeshadow,down in the laundry room.Well,I was down there for an hour and a half,during the hottest time of the day.The temperature outside,here in Canada was about 95 and the humidity was alot more!Now,I have very oily eyelids..so,I put some of this eyeshadow on and decided to test drive it..and to my extream pleasure,after an hour and a half,the eyeshadow has not creased or evaporated from my lids..how cool is that ladies:))))I will repurchase this and get more:)))
Woa!This mascara has a big honkin brush:)))Anyway,I just bought this today at Walmart,and just HAD to try it right away..lol!Was I shocked!!The length on my lashes was enough that sold me on this product!!I will repurchase..I would say its now,one of my holy grail mascars:)Oh,and I did use my eyelash curler as well,in case anybody was wonderin.

I also use this concealer as a eyeshadow primer and let me say..it works!!!At least 10 hours ladies.But I have also just used it as a concealer and it works wonderful for that to.Great product and will repurchase:)
I got this in the non waterproof version and all I can say is WOW!!!I love this stuff!!!I curled my lashes first and with me,I always do one eye at a time..first I put the primer on and I do not let it dry,then I put the mascara side on..OMG!!I will be repurchasing this,thats for sure.And Im looking forward to trying the waterproof one and also maybe try the bold one..later.I have never seen my lashes look this good..lol!!!
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Powder Palette Healthy Glow Bronzer
MarianCan 5/27/2010 1:52:00 PM
I LOVE this bronzer! It gives me a great natural glow and a flawless look. I wear this over my foundation but sometimes I wear it alone. It gives me a flawless look that lasts ALL day over the foundation and maybe half a day without foundation. So this is a GREAT setter for your foundation. I would repurchase this in a heartbeat. I totally agree with this person's post:))) The only thing different is I dont use MAC foundation..someday..lol!This is the ONLY bronzer you will see me wearing.I am fair skin,blond hair,green eyes and my foundations that I wear are mostly in classic ivory,sand beige,or shell..in photoready,just for reference.

Primer/ Corrector -GOSH - Velvet Touch foundation primer
MarianCan 2/22/2010 1:06:00 PM
WOW!I am soooo glad I bought this primer!!!!This is my first time using it and I must say,Im very impressed.For awhile now,I have been a Smashbox primer gal,and its wonderful to but..my face gets oily a bit to much for my likeing,but that doesnt happen with the GOSH primer.I have combo/oily skin.I had used this primer with my Revlon Colorstay,and my foundation just glided on:))))))My face feels sooo soft and silky!!!No breakouts or anything.I only use 1 pump for the whole face and,oh yes,its also great for the eyelids as well for keeping your eyeshadows on.Its in a clear plastic kind of container and has a pump that you also have a lot of control over, and you can see how much you have used..I love this!!!!!!!!!! I will update in a few days to see how it goes.Thankyou MUA:) UPDATE!..Im still loving this primer and I will repurchase,GLADLY:)
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black
MarianCan 1/27/2010 2:21:00 PM
I agree with felgij about this product and what else can I say that she already hasn't.I can actually watch my eyelashes getting longer when I apply the mascara side after primming them first.Must be the wax in the formula or something.I also get lots of compliments when I wear this.I will definetly repurchase!!
I Love love love this foundation!!!There,my review is over!!..lol!Just kidding.Seriously thou,this is a great drug store foundation ladies,and its the only one of all my other foundations that I seem to be using the most these days.And I wear it in shell, I have alot of foundations,and Im afraid there being neglected..lol!What can I say that the others havn't..well..I moisturize my face,and I let that sink in,then I apply a primer(a good one)and the reason Im saying that is..I tried the Revlon natural primer,and it took me awhile to figure out,that maybe I should change primers and that is what I did and low and behold,I love this coverage even more now:)I have been trying this out now,for about a month or more and have really,really been testing it.At first it showed up some dry patches I had..and I thought,ohhh nooooo..but I was not going to be disappointed..I wanted to know why I was getting these dry patches from this foundation..I totaly took a different course on how to take care of my normal combo skin..and it worked!!!!I change my makeup brush that I was using(the Mac stippling one)and Im using a foundation brush instead and I changed primers and now Im exfoliating my skin more about 2-3 times a week,cant forget about that!And I remember to shake the foundation bottle alot..when I dont the product comes out kinda runny.So there you have it..I think this foundation needs to be worn with a primer(with my skin situation)so I cant say for the rest of you ladies..work with it..oh yes,I dont have any more dry patches on my face.Oh,as for the shimmers..they just give my face a nice glow.I asked my hubby a couple of times if my face was sparkly,when we were out in the sunlight..he looked at me as if I was nuts!!I can only see those wee tiny bits of shimmer when I hold my nose up to a magnifying mirror.Mind you,I love my revlon colorstay..but Revlon photoready,I think Im going to be using it alot more.I wonder how its going to react thou,when it comes to summer..THAT should be interesting..lol!Good luck! I forgot to mention that Im not really crazy over the setting powder(I use something different)I have it in light-medium.Oh well...and would I buy this foundation again?In a heartbeat:)And let your moisturizer sink in a bit(about 10 minutes and the same with your primer..if I dont wait long enough,the foundation will slide off my face.This foundation I think is better with a primer..but thats just me Ladies:) Edit to say..Im still loving this foundation!!And I will STILL repurchase:)

Powder -Marcelle - Marcelle Minerals Powder Makeup
MarianCan 10/11/2009 3:01:00 PM
I just purchased this product about a week ago and I must say I have to agree, this is one, non messy,mineral foundation and is super to travel with!I also got the color Chamois and got the blush as well..bought the 2 of them together at Shoppers in Canada.The blush was a a rose pinky color and the 2 together cost 20 dollars..not bad:)Althou,it does go on a little lighter than I expected,maybe I just havnt gotten used to applying it yet.BUT..I do like it very much and the blush is very pretty also.Even my hubby commented on it.Would I repurchase this again?..yep:)
