I really hoped this would work for my dry sensitive skin but it did not. It looks fine close up although i do think there needs to be more yellow shades but but it made my skin fairy dry throughout the day. My skin feels tight as i type. Then since my skin is dry its overproducing oil so i looks greasy even thought feel really dry. Would not repurchase
Moisturizers -Boscia - Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel
PromiscuousGayCroMagnon 4/21/2012 2:04:00 PM
I used this in combination with the black cleanser. I love that its vacuum sealed so you wont get germs in it and the glitter doesn't show up on you face. I haven't seen any of the pore minimizing or complexion clearing it promised. I wouldn't purchase it again because it wasn't hydrating enough for my dry skin. I can do better
Im so sad this product didn't work for me. After a few uses my skin was bright and my skin tone was more even but this gave me so many pimples. I tried to keep using it and hope it would pass but every time i used it again i got more pimples the next day. I quit and my skin was clear again in 3-4 days.
Same beautiful NARS packaging as everything else. Im AA so i use this around the edges of my face so my foundation doesn't look flat. Looks perfectly natural. I would repurchase I updated my rating on this a lowered it a bit. I get darker in summer and now it looks ashy/ dull on my face. Im on the search for a darker bronzer i can wear year round
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in Tipsy
PromiscuousGayCroMagnon 4/18/2012 10:28:00 PM
The color of this blush is a beautiful shimmery coral. I actually chose this over NARS amour blush due to the shimmery effect. Im a sucker for glowing skin. It looks very natural and last for a great deal of the day. The only thing i don't like the the cheap tacky packaging. the blush disks aren't secured in plan in the pan and i hate the plastic colored plans they come in. It looks like childs play makeup. I would repurchase for the love of the product UPDATE: I changed my rating on this. It looked chalky when i looked at it in a mirror outside.
this has replaced my UDPP that stopped working as the new formula sucked. This was on sale at Ulta for $10 and I've been using it for a few weeks. My eyeshadow has looked perfect every single day for the ENTIRE day. I actually went to sleep and woke up the next morning with smeared foundation on my pillow, smeared eyeliner, lipstick on my cheek, and perfect eyeshadow. I would repurchase. A little goes a long way. I fund that if you use too much your lids will look a little chalky
Product comes in a beautiful glass bottle and looks great going on. Has medium coverage. It gets a shade or 2 darker once it dries. It has a skin finish and looks so great for the first few hours, after that if gets oily and separates on my face. I have dry skin so maybe it was my skin overcompensating for all the alcohol in the product. Also after a week or so i saw that this product was really irritating my skin. It was flaky and dull. I stopped using it.
the pure matte collection are long lasting and full of color. This lipstick is no different. Its a rich raspberry that looks beautiful in a out of the tube. It has a few sparkles in the tube but its not visible on the lips. It last for hours without touchup. I also like to layer a lighter orchid lipstick over this for added depth. I would repurchase
I love this color. Im AA so this doesn't look bronze on me, Instead i look moonlit. Imagine Benefit high beam but for dark women. It lasts all day and doesnt highlight my pores. Its cream to powder. I apply using a blush brush. I would purchase
Im AA so i use this for the perfect golden glow and i love it. Its easy to apply and is not a glitter bomb. I rub the top with blush brush and and apply on cheekbones, chin, and brows. It looks nice and doesn't mess up my foundation or blush. I have this in a few colors.
I like this package much more than the original naked palette. Its metal and has a full mirror when opened. Im not a fan of double ended brushes but this one is fine. I didn't find the naked palette warm enough for me. Its was neutral (I'm african american). This is cooler but i actually like it better. I can really pull off the pale gold looks with this. This palette has the newly formulated shadows. Im no expert but it feels like the same UD quality to me. I use them wet and dry with no issues and with the right primer they will last all night and still look perfect.
Before this i was using Bobbi Brown Skin foundation. I liked it and gave it a great review. It was like my skin but better. However, this foundations is like my skin but amazing. I don't know how it makes it glow but it just does and i don't question it. You have to be sure to properly exfoliate when using this because it will highlight any dry patches you may have. I didn't rate it a perfect score because of the lasting power. Its good and lasts the majority of the day but my BB skin was longer lasting. It says sheer glow but this is not sheer coverage. Its medium so all of my light acne scars are covered. It can look streaky but i learned its best applied with fingers and then i blend it with my beautyblender. One thing i did not like about the foundations was the packaging. It has no pump and you are supposed to just pour some out. I bought the pump separately for an additional $6. but once you put the pump on the cap will no longer fit on.
I love this product. I have thick long dense 4a/b textured hair and using this product made my hair so much easier to straighten. I wasn't really worried about using to much. I bought the smallest bottle to try and used about half of it for one session and long with MOP pomade. It smells great, detangles nicely and keeps my hair moisturized. Im not a fan of the packaging. Its a glass bottle with a twist top. It really should have a pump. I would repurchase
Crème -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation
PromiscuousGayCroMagnon 11/7/2011 11:12:00 AM
I wanted a perfect matte looking face and i got it with this. I have pretty good skin with some discoloration/ dark marks but this provided a full coverage finish so my skin looked clear. It lasted all day and i was shine free too. The major downside about this product is that it transfers on everything. Not sure if thats how all cremes are or if its because i didn't use a setting powder but i hate that flaw.
Lipstick -BeneFit Cosmetics - Full Finish-Espionage
PromiscuousGayCroMagnon 11/4/2011 12:11:00 AM
Such a dark plum color. It fits the name. I want to pair it with sunglasses and a tan trench coat. It really is full finish. I only had to reapply once after i ate and its moisturizing. Id repurchase
