I have a love/hate relationship with this concealer, purely because it has amazing coverage yet the packing is ridiculous! I was disgusted when I noticed how difficult it was to get any product out, and it feels like the package is filled with air. It's not just me that has said this, but several others complaining their concealer isn't full. If the concealer was full and easier to get out, I'd love it. But I'm not sure if I'll repurchase a half full concealer again. If you are planning on getting it, take it out of the box before buying it and see if it's filled with air or not.
So glad I got a sample from Sephora before purchasing this. Saw several wonderful reviews on this and was very disappointed with the coverage of this concealer. Maybe I need to try it more, but I wouldn't repurchase this. I bought the Kat Von D lock-it foundation and discovered I don't need concealer at all, for it is so pigmented. If you plan on purchasing the foundation, you don't need the concealer. The fdtn is pretty much a two-in-one.
A great scrub for weekly use, way to rough to be used daily. It gets the job done of removing dead and dry skin and leaving skin feeling clean and smooth. I use this a few times a month when I notice dry flakes, and it helps so much. Be very gentle rubbing this in, and don't overuse it. A pea size goes a long way, and it will last you a long long time! I just wish the beads were a little more gentle and less abrasive.
My all-time FAVORITE scent of Bath & Body Works and antibacterial hand soap! I use it like every day, and have just ran out! This smells sooo amazing, and smells like a sweet perfume. I apply a dime size on my hand, and for several hours I can smell it and absolutely love it! Wish this scent would be sold all year long :) It doesn't really smell like most apple scents, which I don't mind.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

After seeing so many people rave over this mascara I finally found it at Kmart and bought it! It is amazing compared to other more expensive mascara's, and I'm so glad I bought it. This mascara lengthens and volumizes lashes, leaving you with doll-like eyelashes. The only bad thing I have found with this mascara is the packaging. It has little room to remove excess mascara off the wand. Definitely my new HG mascara, and you won't regret purchasing it! It's also the cheapest mascara I've EVER purchased!
Just bought this after having used MUFE HD definition then switching that for Revlon CS. My skin is sensitice and combination, depending on weather if its dry or oily, and i have mild acne. The first time i applied this i put moisturizer on, the sample of kat von d concealer, and then this foundation with my flat top stippling brush. I was absolutely amazed and in awe of how flawless my skin looked!! Its never looked so natural, even toned, and no imperfections showed. Honestly, i've never used such an amazing foundation until this! Before i bought i asked what everyone thought on this product... Everybody said its way too thick, cakey, and you have to shovel it off. Not with me! Felt light and very natural. Havent used long so will update shortly :) Update: Still loving this foundation! When its warmer outside it might get a tad oily-looking, but any foundation does that to me. Blotting sheets take care of that. I make sure to moisturize a lot now that it's winter, since my skin gets kinda dry, and this foundation can emphasize that. <3 it
Such a gorgeous and well pigmented blush! I love this so much and was beyond excited to receive it in a swap! I love the gorgeous color, which looks great on my tan skin and doesn't make me look like a clown. It's nicely pigmented, not too pigmented but not invisible. It's absolutely perfect, besides the packing of course. The packaging looks a little cheap, but it's not all that bad and is still easy to open. This and Key Laguna are my all-time favorite!
The first time I gave this product a go, I didn't care for it. But I only tried it one day and went back to my HG, MUFE HD Foundation. Recently I decided to spare my MUFE on certain days and try my Revlon Colorstay again. I'm very happy I decided to give it another go, and it gives great coverage! When I first apply it, it looks very shiny but I always set my foundation with powder, so that helped. It's not oily and greasy, and hasn't made my sensitive skin break out yet. Looks flawless with medium-full coverage and is buildable. The only thing I hate about it is the packaging. Since it's a bottle with no pump, you have to pour it out and it makes a mess on where the bottle screws on! But for all the pro's, I still love it over that one con. <3 Definitely worth the hype, just give it a try!
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - bamboo eye shading brush
SamanthaJo19 10/11/2012 11:50:00 AM
Love this e/s brush! It's soft and thick, unlike the UD brushed that came with the Naked palettes. It's the only brush I use with my eyeshadows. Really great with no shedding(at least mine).
I love love this brush! I use it every single day when I apply my concealer, and it is amazing! I wouldn't trade this for any other concealer brush :) You get more than what you paid for with ecotools.
Such a gorgeous blush! Just received it in a swap and was so surprised at how pigmented it was! Never had a powder blush that was as pigmented. It's a lovely color, especially for fairer skin tones, being a light pink. It goes on smoothly and really is lovely. Just wish the packaging was better.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professional Platinum Stippling brush #44
SamanthaJo19 10/8/2012 4:04:00 PM
My first stippling brush, and i was somewhat disappointed. I feel it should be a little more thicker but that is my only complaint. It doesnt really shed and gives me that airbrushed look. I use it with mufe hd. Pretty good overall, just wish its hair was a little thicker. :)
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

This product smelled great and felt great, but didn't do anything for my breakouts. However, i love the grapefruit body wash.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow
SamanthaJo19 9/19/2012 9:25:00 PM
I really love these eye shadows. They have such great colors, but definitely need more shades. I'd really like to see some soft nudes, corals, etc. The packaging is great, and really couldn't get any better. They blend very easy, buildable, highly pigmented and are nicely textured. I can't wait until more shades come out, which I hope they do, and plan on buying more!
This concealer didn't really give me the coverage I wanted as a concealer compared to my HG Hard Candy glamoflauge. If you don't need much coverage this would be a good one, but it just didn't work out for me and wasn't worth the money.
