I also use this powder and Im another believer in it:)Yes,I do hate the package but what I do is..tie an elastic around the container,so that you can keep it in your purse.And that seems to work for me:)I work 8 hour shifts,so I might and might not have to reaply.Will I purchase this again?You betcha!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - ColorStay 12 Hour Eyeshadow Quad - Priceless Metals
MarianCan 9/25/2009 6:39:00 PM
I just got this quad today and I am very pleased,well actually I bought it this morning,so I just HAD to test the shadows out..now,I did not use a primer,and here it is about 7 hours later and the shadows are still there:)))))I will wear these again tomorrow as hubby and I are going out and will wear a primer and see just how long the shadows will last.Will I buy this again?You bet!
I have been using this for awhile now so I think I can write a little review about it.I LOVE IT!!:)))I have normal combo skin and Im 55 years old.And I have tried the best of the foundations out there,but I really really like the coverage this foundation gives me.I am currently in the possession of 3 foundations and this one..I keep coming back to this one.I work 8 hours and I have to put my makeup on at 5:45 am and its still there by 3pm..and I do not look like Im wearing a mask.My hubby told me that one time when I wore Loreal Tru Match(needless to say I never wore it again)and my hubby is very outspoken and very honest and critical..and I sooooo appreaciate that in him,so I always ask him..do I look ok?And he knows exactly what I mean..lol!Now I do not wear any moistureizer under this either.Will I buy this agin?..you betcha:)))
Yea,I bought it alright:(One of the worst mascara's I have tried and it flaked and it flaked:((((Dam! I hate that,dont you?My co-workers looked at me kinda funny looking..and thank gawd I have some very honest ones,and they were the ones who told me that I should go and check out my mascara in the washroom:(((Never again!!Im on the hate end of this product,let me tell you!!
Polishes -Rimmel - 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Mania
MarianCan 7/24/2009 5:35:00 PM
I bought 3 of these today:)Pulsating,Green with Envy and Climax.And of course I had to try the Green with Envy one and its gorgeous!!I love when the light shines on it.I wish I could describe this color..but all I can say is..its a blue,green,teal all mixed into one..lol!Make sense?I wish you could see this color.Took just 1 coat and now Im hooked:)))And it only coats less than 5 bucks here at our Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.Go buy some!!..:)))
I just bought this mascara this morning and I was sooooo gun ho to try it,so I did as soon as I got home.The brush will take a little getting use to but by golly,it does what it says it does..I curled my lashes first and whats most important with this mascara is the two side wand.It is now about 10:30pm here in Ontario Canada,so I have had this on alllllll day and the curl is still going strong,and NO flaking!!!I love that:)The only thing I could say in a negative way is that it may clump some but not much,thats for sure.I do remember thou,this morning,that this mascara takes some time to apply,so if your in a hurry in the mornings..then this mascara may not be for you.Will I buy this again?You betcha!!Thank you MUA!!
I bought this mascara and I really like it!I use 2 other mascara's(Sexy Curves and Lash Stellito)for length and I use this new Loreal one for volumn.Now that I wipe down my wands with a tissue first,to get all that access goop off,it helps soooooooooo much ladies:)I just dont want all that crap on my lashes,and this method seems to really work.Now this new Loreal one,I did not get the waterproof one(dont care for them)just wanted to mention that.There's been no flaking so far.And so far so good!Will update at the end of the day today,as I just got this mascara,so I might have to change my ratings.I hope not!
Eyeliner -Marcelle - Marcelle Hypo-Allergenic Waterproof Eyeliner - Mulberry
MarianCan 7/14/2009 1:35:00 PM
I also love this eyeliner!I just bought it this morning and I have to admit,I was looking for a certain color,but just didnt know what..you gals probably know what I mean.Well,the sales lady,whom Im getting to know alot,recommended this one in "Mulberry" to me and said she thought it would suit me.I told her I was looking for something other than black..and I have to admit,this is my very first time in buying a eyeliner from Marcelle.I am soooo pleased with it,that I will now go and buy more of them..there were sooo many colors I wanted..lol!!Its nice and smooth going on,but havnt had it on long enough yet to judge it 100% yet..I will update AND I will repurchase this:)Thankyou MUA!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear - Enchanted Forest
MarianCan 7/11/2009 2:30:00 PM
I have to agree,I just LOVE this pallete!!Just purchsed this one today and the pigmentation was such a shock to me!!!All 4 colors are gorgeous!!Going out tonight,so I shall see how it goes:)Thankyou MUA!
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Quad (all shades)
MarianCan 7/11/2009 2:08:00 PM
Today I bought the "Shimmering Sands" and all I can say its..ok.The pigmentation is better in this palette than some other Covergirl ones,but if you want REAL pigmentation,try the one by Maybelline.Its called "Enchanted Forests".All 4 colors are like..wowzers!!!:)Like everybody says..all these palettes by Covergirl and Maybelline are a hit and miss and I guess you just have to try them yourself to see.I do like both of these brand names and the cost is good to!I will not be buying Shimmering Sands again..by Enchanted Forests by Maybelline..you betcha!!!
I also got the French Vanilla one,and its ok.Its nice and cooling when you first put it on and feels nice and soft,but doesnt last long at all,not like my Bonne Bell lip smackers..now THOSE,are very moisturing.With all lip balms,obviously,if you have anything to eat or drink,the balm wears off.And its the same with the Bonne Bell lip smackers..I know..but...if you dont have anything to eat or drink wearing THEM..your lips stay very moisturizing for a long long time.I will stay using my Bonne Bell ones:)I have the pink one called "Cotton Candy" and its sheer,and the other one of Bonne Bell I got was Dr.Pepper",which has a hint of red in it,and I shall purchase more of these..not the soft lips.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

I just purchased one of these today in "Premium Pink" and already I love it!!But I cannot tell you yet,just how long this stays on,but will update later this evening:)So far so good thou.It made it through my lunch and is still very pretty and visible!I did put a little bit of clear balm on my lips thou,but not much and oh yea,before I applied the lipstick I was already wearing a balm as well for at least a couple of hours before we went out this morning,so maybe that might have helped,Im not sure yet.Thankyou MUA! Update! Its now way past supper and this lipstick is still on:)I cannot believe it ladies!!I am impressed and I shall be buying more of these!You just have to master how much of this stuff you put on and also to wear a clear balm over top as well.Thankyou MUA!!!
Eyeliner -Almay - Amazing Lasting 16 Hour Eye Pencil in Precise Black
MarianCan 7/3/2009 6:12:00 PM
I have to absolutely agree,this eyeliner is fantastic and true to its word about long lasting!!I one time made it my mission to test it out,and I worked a 12 hour shift and then went out for supper after word,and still didnt get home till almost midnight,and yep,you guessed it..it was still there:)Definetly recommend this product:)Thankyou MUA!
Today I bought the deep plum shade and was a little hesitant about the color,cause as you know,sometimes the color of a cosmetic is not the same when you get it home,as it looks in the store and you try it on,and think to yourself..uh oh:(So I ended up,buying 3 others in shades that I thought would suit me as well.I work in a hospital and really dont want to be wearing my MAC blush,so I thought,I would give these a try and hoped for the best..well,it turns out,that the deep plum is perfect for me:)And I have also tried Classic Pink,and it was good on me as well.So I think,so far,I did really well,in choosing my right blush colors.WHEW!Havnt tried the other 2 yet,but a girl can hope..lol!Thankyou MUA!!
Today,I bought my first ever bronzer and I love this one!!No shimmer and it gives my skin a perfect glow,but Im still trying it out to see if I have to buy a bronzer brush.For the time being Im using a powder brush,not sure if thats a good idea or not..lol!But I guess if I have to,I will break down and get a brush for this bronzer.The only complaint I have is the packaging,and I will buy this product again:)Thankyou MUA!!
