Shine: 1/5. minimal! Moisturizing power: 3/5. Better than most. Smell: 5/5. Sweet. Taste: 0/5. AWEFUL! It somehow always gets into my mouth and has this really bad chemical taste. Other lip glosses don't have this problem at all Lasting power: 3/5. There's so little lip gloss in it anyway, won't buy again.
Tinted Moisturizer -E.L.F. - Shielding Hydro-Tint SPF 15 in Tone 1

I got apricot beige: coverage: 1/5. I don't really see any coverage... lasting power: 5/5. seems to last. moisturizing power: 2/5. It's a tad bit on the drying side. feel: 5/5. Not sticky, dries pretty fast. look: it seems to highlight the unsmoothness of the skin on my nose. Pro: no allergic reaction (to me, this is one in a thousand, so that's awesome) Cons: no coverage?

The $1 black eyeshadow, Custom Eyes - Moondust has better staying power. This one works too, though. pigment: 4/5. it is highly pigmented, but with a heavy hand. lasting power: 3/5. Not for oily eyelids. Stays on all day with primer tho. Pros: works nicely as a brow definer Cons: it tends to come off my brush and get on my cheeks when applying. quite a hassle! At least I got it for free with their promotion, was worth a try.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion
goofyhusky 4/28/2010 2:17:00 PM
A lightweight moisturizer, perfect for my face. my body needs a heavier one, though. Feel: 5/5. not greasy or anything, dries pretty fast. Look: 5/5. it won't give my face a weird sheen. Smell: 5/5. fragrance free! Lasting power: 5/5. Until I wash it off. My extremely sensitive skin is very happy with this lotion. I only wish it could be a tad bit cheaper :P
Color: soft black with shimmer. It's not a very dark solid kind of black... Coverage: 5/5. Easy to work with. Lasting power: 4/5. Need primer for it to stay for 8+ hours. It doesn't flake or irritate my eyes. I use it as a powder liner and it has worked very well for $1. I will buy again!
coverage: 2/5. It's super sheer. application: 5/5. Easy, smooth, allows for mistakes. Staying power: 4/5. Doesn't flake much, if at all. It has this greyish hue on my skin, not expected but still kind of attractive. My only complaint is the coverage.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish - 510A Light Beige Frost

Coverage: 5/5! Can go from sheer to full, it's easy to work with. Staying power: 3/5. Doesn't really last through a meal, if u don't eat its good. Feel: 5/5, neither drying nor sticky. Look: 5/5, no running off, very attractive on me - it's a medium pink with shine. I'm fair Asian skin, Mac NC/NW 15-20. A guy said it made him really wanna taste my lips lol! It's subtly seducing. Application 5/5: easy even without a brush. Smell: none!
! Shade: classic ivory, light 2; very good shades, nothing weird. ! Coverage: light to medium. pretty good but natural looking coverage. ! Application: easy, allows for mistakes, smooth. **** I do it with my fingers. when I rubbed it on for the first time the texture felt too thick/balled up a bit, but it soon disappeared into smoothness. I'm pretty clumsy so this even works for me! ! Staying power: decent (I never left it on for more than 5 hours tho) ! Removal: surprisingly easy, a good cleanser can do, works with any remover. ! Price: $5.99 at Walgreens. 1 tube lasts for at least 100 applications.
1. It burned my face, I turned instantly red. 2. It's not the "very water resistant" as it claims, only took one dab with wet tissue to take it off. 3. Shady business not showing % on active ingrediants.
1. I'd like to give it credit, my face is allergic to almost everything, and this is an exception. 2. It doesn't "match" itself into your skin shade - it's just another pre-made foundation with the color suspended, and only released when it meets air. 3. The reason it looks "matching" on you is because it's soooo lightly pigmented - it doesn't even cover blackheads! 4. Smoothing on is easy, but it looks grainy on my face.
* hem * It may sound a bit gross, but a nurse told me to use this when I had a yeast infection or a UTI. Soaking in it really took the itchiness/pain away. It works wonders in providing fast relief! It acts faster than the cream/pill even.
I have pretty bad skin - flaky surface with oily base! I'm also allergic to everything except a few lotions. Well, no allergic reaction to this so far, it moisturizes well. Coverage is pretty light, but my dark circles are less noticeable. It does create the good skin look on my face. The only complaint I have is the very slight and barely noticeable sheen it gives my skin. UPDATE: after using it for weeks I started having allergic reactions to it. I'm sure this is the cause as this is the only thing I put on. What a pity!
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Baby Daily Moisture Lotion

This is my first and only HG, because this is the ONLY thing that I am not allergic to after using it on my face for months day and night, and my eczema has actually improved - flaky skin almost completely gone! It doesn't feel sticky, disappears into my skin, and my facial skin is so smooth now - the improvement is not only there when this moisturize is on - sometimes I got lazy and forgot to use it, and I can last for an hour or so without moisturizer now. I have the tube packaging instead of the pump one and it's great to carry around. Some complain the dimethicone is a "barrier" instead of moisturizes, did you know that dry skin and normal skin have about the same % of water, but the dry skin loses water more quickly? That's how moisturizers work - not by adding moisture (you should get enough when washing your face), but by protecting your skin surface from losing water.

Size is generous, does its job. I like Clean & Clear's plastic sheets better, but this one is cheaper.

Plus: knowing that it doesn't have all the harmful ingrediants. Minus: takes forever to dry. Lasting power is about the same as most other products I've used. Will come back to this till I find a better one.
