Okay I don't love to come on here and slam cosmetics but this truly deserves it. The concept of being able to use wet or dry is interesting and it would be good if it actually worked but this just wasn't doing it for me. I tried using it wet but it made my combination skin look super oily and gross. I tried to give it another chance by using it dry but it didn't provide any good coverage. I did not want to waste it since it was over ten dollars (I usually don't spend over eight bucks on foundation) so I tried to keep using it wet with the sponge provided. The makeup itself did a pretty sucky job and after several uses the sponge completely fell apart. So much for me joining the Palladio Wet/Dry foundation bandwagon. I do love Palladio's lip stains though, so those are worth a try if you haven't given them a chance yet. I will repurchase those but as for this foundation NEVER AGAIN!!!
Oh I was so excited to try this!!! I got it in Pink Punch and as soon as I got out of the drugstore I ripped it out of its little package and started to apply it. It was really smooth on and it left my lips very moisturized. It really does smell like fruit punch but I didn't notice any taste on my lips. That was kind of a let down for me. Some people don't like for their lip balm to have flavoring but this one would be perfect with a little bit of a fruity taste. The color looks neon in the tube but on the lips it's just a bright baby pink, not overwhelming or overdone. It stays for about two hours on my lips which is good for a lip balm especially a tinted one. I do not mind reapplying because this its so cheap. This might not be everyone's favorite but it works for me. I can't wait to try some other colors!!! Oh and I forgot to add, I love the packaging. It's simple and it works. : )
Foundations -Maybelline - Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation

So I kept seeing the commercial for this over and over so I finally was encouraged to purchase it. First Round: (ding ding ding) I got "Natural Beige". I loved the look and application of this product, but the color was way to dark and orange. Second Round: (ding ding ding) I liked this foundation so much that I bought a second bottle in "Nude". It looked much more natural with my skin tone and I fell in love. I really do like the pump and the creamy formula. For me it provides decent coverage although I might need a dab of concealer here and there (no biggie). I especially like how this covered a few of the acne scars that I have on my cheek. They are slowly going away with a little help from my Clarisonic Mia 2 and Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel (reviews for those to come) but like I said, overall all this had nice coverage. After I'm done applying the foundation and concealer were I need it I sweep on some finishing powder and I'm done!!! My face looks flawless (can you say Photoshop!?) and it stays in place all day even in this dang hot Southern weather. I was kind of upset to see such bad reviews on MUA but hopefully some other users will join me in the Dream Nude Airfoam cult really soon. : ) ***EDIT*** I thought that this stuff could withstand the heat, but I was wrong. I wore this outside for about two hours and it melted off. It was sad because I really thought this foundation was a holy grail finalist. Drugstore foundations are such a joke. Now I'll have to go back to expensive (but effective) Clinique foundation.
Ummm okay I will NEVER in this lifetime use another mascara ever again. Like all other curious mascara lovers, I will probably stray once or twice to try a mascara that gives you "skyscraper length and colossal volume!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" but I'm convinced that I will just end up coming back to this. P.S. If you tried the original Great Lash but hated it and are on the fence about trying Lots of Lashes definitely do it!!! I hated Great Lash but Lots of Lashes is Great Lash's hip little granddaugther!!!
Oh this stuff is great!!! Here is my little story about NYC cosmetics (story time yea!!!) anyways...over the past two months or so I have become kind of obsessed with NYC cosmetics and this particular lip gloss. It goes on smooth (I love the long, flexible applicator), it has a fairly decent color payoff, it smells and tastes yummy!!! (think vanilla cupcakes...wow now I want a cupcake!), and it is super cheap. The price is good because if I am going to wear makeup at all I really don't want to splurge and break the bank and let me tell you...this does the job! I have it in Midtown Mulberry and Prospect Pink. I got Midtown Mulberry first and when I opened it, I wasn't expecting much. After I used it several times I loved it so much that I ran out and got Prospect Pink. I like both colors and although I have yet to try any other colors I'm sure that they are beautiful as well. Try these dirt cheap things!!! Seriously!!! Go NOW...you won't be let down. : ) *NEW COLOR UPDATE* So I just picked this up in my third and most summery color "Fashion Avenue Fushia" and it is a beautiful pink. It's more shocking in the tube than it is on the lips so don't be scared of it being too bright. When it eventually wears off (after a couple of hours for me) it leaves a pretty lipstain look on my lips. I think this might be my favorite liquid lip shine color so far, but once again, I'm going to try more!!!
I broke out around my period so I picked this up and used it as a mask. I was really suprised at when I looked at my face the next morning. This worked wonders overnight.
I love this little drugstore gem!!! It feels sooo smooth on my lips and it smells like watermelons. I put this on in class and the girl sitting next to me told me that I smelled good...hahaha : )
