I love this brush. I'm surprised how much I actually like it. It gives a light application of foundation which I really like especially with heavy foundations that tend to look cakey. I havent noticed shedding while I'm using the brush. I haven't noticed any color bleeding either but I haven't washed too many times yet. Plus it's so much cheaper than the Mac version I couldn't go wrong. I got one for my mother who has mature skin and she loves it as well. Highly recommend this brush to anyone that wants a softer application of foundation.
Liquid -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20

I have combination oily skin and my skintone is medium neutral undertone. I heard such great things about this foundation so I purchased it. I got shade 60 which is a good match for me. I feel like it last pretty long even with my combo/oily skin. I use a stippling brush to apply it. I find that a traditional foundation brush applies it too thickly. I really like this product. My only real issue is that it doesn't have a pump or a squeeze tube type of opening.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I had pretty low expectations for this product at first. I had never used a setting spray and I thought the claims were too good to be true. I was wrong. It's great. I love how I can wear a dewy finish foundation during summer ( I live in a very humid climate) spray this on and my makeup will last. Unlike powder this doesn't leave my face looking cakey. Great stuff!
Cleansers -Neutrogena - All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

I got a small package of these wipes with a purchase of a foundation. They were ok. I found it burned my skin a little after using but I was willing to use them up since they did their job. However after fourth time using them, they cause a reaction on my eyelid. It was itchy and flakey. I threw out the rest of the wipes and will never repurchase.
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

I didn't care for this at all. It burned my eyes when I used it. The bottle isn't great because it seems to waste alot of product since there isn't a pump. It did take off my makeup but not my waterproof mascara which is why I bought it. Never buying it again
Lovely brush! I have had this brush for years and it looks exactly the same as when I brought it. It has never shed. Perfect for powder foundation or setting powders or all over bronzer. If anything happened to mine I would definitely go and buy another one. HG item.
I have normal to oily skin that tends to break out every so often. Even though the name has the word aqua in it, the finish isn't dewy when I wear it. It's matte either. It looks like skin which I find very rare in foundations. The coverage to me is medium. It covers very well without looking like a mask on your face. It does have a scent to it so that may be an issue for some. I don't notice it when its on my face and it's a nice rose scent. I love the packaging because its plastic instead of the usual glass of the other Chanel foundations. It has a squeeze tube top which dispensing the perfect amount.
I use the color natural. Perfect match for my skintone. I use it in conjunction with with the corrector. I use an eye cream before and I set it with powder. It works great for my under eye area. It's creamy but not running. It covers wonderfully. Great for the under eye area. I have never used it to cover a blemish so I'm not sure how it does on the rest of the face.
Great product. It really helps counter act the darkness and blue/green in my dark circles. It's smooth but thick enough that it covers and stays. It works best if you use an eye cream first. I use my fingers to apply it and I set it. I don't find it creases on me.
Beautiful eyeshadow! Great pigmentation, smooth, and super cheap. There is no way you can go wrong with shadow. Great dupe for Mac Satin Taupe.
I love these lipsticks! I have almost purchased all the colors. All of them are beautiful. They feel really nice on the lips. They are lipsticks not really lip butters though. I love the packaging too. It's cute and it's easy to pick out the one I want to wear since the top is the color of the lipstick.
Concealers -Neutrogena - 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes
bitterrose1025 2/13/2012 4:09:00 PM
I really like this concealer. I use the medium shade and it's perfect. It is on the sheer side but for everyday it works. I like that it isn't thick nor does it feel heavy. I don't find that it creases on me and it last all day for me. For a drugstore item it is on the pricier side but it still cheaper than department stores products.
I love love this product. I use it as a primer for my concealer. It has a slight pinky peach tint so it brightens and counter acts the blue in my under eye circles. And for me it provides a great base for my concealer to go on smoothly. I also enjoy that the roller is metal because it provides a nice cooling sensation. It does kinda conceal but I have pretty bad dark circles so I do need to still use a concealer. However if your under eye area isn't very bad I think you could get away with just using this. It last all day without creasing for me. One of my favorite products.
I wanted a alcohol free witch hazel toner that was cheap. This product does the job. Feels really nice. It isn't harsh. It refreshes my skin. It is a really good toner and the price is great. The only thing that is terrible (borderline unbearable) is the smell. I could handle an strong fragrance but this stuff smells revolting. It's such a shame because other than the smell it's a great product.
This e/s looked so beautiful in the pan and the swatch on my hand but on my eyes it was too pinkish red. It made me look super tired and just bad. I ended up returning it. I have light to medium skin with neutral undertone and I have pretty dark undereye area due to my heritage so maybe that had something to do with how bad the e/s looked on me. Beside that it has a lovely texture and pigmentation.
