I hate to be the minority but this kinda sucked, there wasn't really anything special about it. It flaked, gave no oomph (and I have long lashes), smudged (both this & waterproof), and I just wasn't impressed. To be honest, it's probably in the most hated catagory for me. I'm glad it worked for others though :)
Loose Powders -Prescriptives - Magic Liquid Powder

I love Prescriptives but this just seems to be the most over-rated product ever. What bothers me is that the powder doesn't do anything. this just sits on top of skin no matter how little you put on. I'm not even sure of the purpose of this powder? It WON'T set foundation-- It doesn't sink in, it just sits on your skin.
I was sooo disappointed with this. I love their minty balms & when I grabbed the strawberry & ras. I expected it to taste fruity but it had NOTHING of the sort at all! It tasted just like regular waxy balm. It smells fruity but there's no yummy or even slight taste to it. It's cheap so I'm not really mad but I just expected a better taste :(
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Curious by Britney Spears

I love this so much. It's upsetting that so many base their review on Britney & not the product itself (how old are we?) Anyway this smells amazing, not overpowering but it does last. To me it smells like you're running through a flower garden, my boyfriend loves the way it smells though. After I'm done washing my hair, I spray this on while wet & leaves it with a gorgeous scent that lasts all day long especially when the wind hits it. I'd definitely reccamend to everyone. It's an adorable bottle too.
Liquid -Prescriptives - Flawless Skin Total Protection Makeup SPF 15

This is my HG. Not only is there a shade pale enough, it does what it says!!! IT stays on through sweating, humidity, water, etc. This doesn't clog my pores, this has sunscreen, this is just the best foundation I've ever used.
I got duped of this, I should have read the reviews before getting it. This did absolutely nothing & I did return it. I have better luck with Burts Bees!
This is by far the worst foundation ever! Anyone who says this is heavy with full coverage must have perfect skin. My skin is pretty clear & I just needed something to even out & I had a baby zit on my chin & it didn't even slightly cover it!. Not to mention that this stuff has about 3 different oils & WAX in it. If you want clogged pores and laughable skin, by all means by this. I took this back the following week, if you want to try this AT LEAST go have them put it on for you and test it for the entire day. If you have zits though, Geeez I can only imagine what this would do to your skin girls..... How the hell can magazines rave this? It's the exact same product ingredients as Alexis Vogel foundations- LITERALLY and the quality is just the same, and that's not a good thing ladies!
I love these, they look great on my PPP skin and they last me all day, I have them in each color. I like these better then Urban Decay, for some reason urban made my eyes burn and didn't last all day with me. Supprisingly the cheaper brand does lol. Go figure ;)
Foundations -Alexis Vogel - Creme Foundation - Light

This was the worst foundation ever. It's perfect for you if you have perfect skin but stay away if you are PALE and actually have a flaw. Even bisque is too dark for a pale girl, if they say it's not then they're skin is darker then they claim. This has bees wax & mineral oil so it WILL break you out if you're prone to breakouts and it doesn't look natural! Even a make up artist told me that this was the worst brand out there, she doesn't even believe half the stuff alexis says and sadly I have to agree. Stay frigging away or if you must find a way to test it and by all thats Holy, PALE GIRLS STAY AWAY unless you wanna be laughed at behind your backs.
This line was perfect until they changed it. This broke me out so bad and just didn't last like the other mineral foundations did. I'm started to wonder just how much they tweeked it up?? I dont know, it just dried me out (Even worse then before) and gave my entire face cystic acne all over Literally! and I never break out!!! I don't know, try a sample before you buy it if you're prone to break outs. They added so much stuff it's NOT MINERAL FOUNDATION anymore.
Loose Powders -New York Color - loose translucent powder

The color was light enough for me but this broke me out so bad! I tried it on my vacation and there were cystic zits all over!! It was horrible, then I passed it onto my best friend and she started breaking out horribly too. Finally we threw it away but if you BREAK OUT STAY AWAY!!!!!!
The didn't work for me either, my feet actually seemed like they got drier which was a huge disappointment for me since I had high expectations about this.
I love this product, it gives lips a tingle (Which can be to much for sensitive lips) but it does make mine look a litter fuller too. I think if you're on the fence, just get a sample of it.
I got this when I was going through a break out stage & it gets really cakey when you put it over a blemish. It also drys super fast so if you dont blend it all quickly and effectivly, you get a really obvious and cakey face. Theres definitly better foundations out there. Only upside to it is, they made a shade light enough for me.
I love this smell so much. It smells really sweet so if you're not into that kind of thing stay away from this. However as much as I hate to say it because I LOVE LUSH, this doesn't give bubbles at all. Im disappointed at how bad their bubble bars give bubbles and this is no exception but the scent is amazing.
