For reference: nc27-30, warm yellow undertones, oily Bought this because of the whole Kim k hype. I wouldn't repurchase this product! I used this to set my undereye concealer (bobbi brown corrector, maybelline fit me concealer). I set using my damp beauty blender and I only use little product. The results still made my undereyes look really dry and Cakey! I love my MUFE's hd powder but I wanted to try something new. I guess I'm going back to my old love.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
aznmnkygrl808 3/28/2013 5:43:00 AM
For reference: nc27-30, warm yellow undertones, oily I used to hate this powder!! I thought it made my skin super oily but I now realized it was because of the foundation I was using back then. I love this powder as much as I love my maybelline dream matte powder, which is my HG matte pressed powder. I picked this up in the shade "sandstorm". After applying my foundation, I apply this powder using my elf studio powder brush or my posh powder brush. This powder leaves my skin matte throughout the day without having to blot/touch up often. I don't mind the scent; it has a rosy/floral/baby powder scent?? I Frickin hate the packaging. The twist up lid is dumb and it would've been nice if there was a mirror to make touch ups on the go easier. Def would repurchase!
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
aznmnkygrl808 3/28/2013 5:37:00 AM
For reference: nc27-30, warm yellow undertones, oily Originally I picked up "nude beige" but found that the shade was too light and too pink for my skintone. I then picked up "medium beige" which I think would be perfect for nc30 yellow girls. It's a little bit too dark for me but I set my foundation with a lighter powder. Love the packaging; yay for pumps!! Formula is a bit thick. This foundation has a semi matte finish! I find that this could look really Cakey if you use too much so I usually mix in my garnier oil free bb cream to make it thinner. Lasts well for my skin throughout the day. Doesn't oxidize. Because this product has SPF in it, it is not photo friendly!! I don't find myself reaching for this all the time so I wouldn't repurchase. Update: 5/1/13 The weather in Hawaii has been ridiculously hot... Scorching muggy heat which would make anyone automatically sweat once they step outside. This foundation does not work well with this weather. My makeup was literally DRIPPING down my face. Luckily I saw my face before I met up with my Friends. I use the same primers/powder/setting spray with revlon colorstay in this type of weather and that held up soooooo much better Compared to this foundation. Dropping rating from a 3 to 2.
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - TimeWise Age fighting Moisturizer C/O
aznmnkygrl808 3/26/2013 6:19:00 AM
For reference, I have oily/combo skin. I purchased this product off of eBay. Although I have oily skin, I still want my face to feel moisturizer but not greasy. At first, This product does hydrate your skin and It sets completely matte pretty fast. Works well under makeup. The more I used this product, it made my skin feel so dry and tight. I would probably only use it during the summer. Other than that, I wouldn't repurchase.
Moisturizers -Olay - Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid - Oil Free
aznmnkygrl808 3/26/2013 6:15:00 AM
I am a big fan of the active hydrating cream but I wanted to try something a bit lighter. For reference, I do have oily skin. Has the exact same smell as the cream; baby powder fragrance. I love using this lotion during the day. It's light yet it moisturizes well. Doesn't leave my face greasy plus I haven't broken out from this product. Works well under my makeup. Def would repurchase this instead of the cream!
Foundations -Boots - No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation
aznmnkygrl808 3/19/2013 10:13:00 PM
For reference: nc 25-30, warm yellow undertones, combo/oily skin Picked this up from target for around $13. What caught my attention was that there were testers and this foundation said "matte", which I'm a sucker for because of my oily skin. Crappy thing is that there are limited shades, around 5? I purchased the 2nd darkest shade "deeply beige", which is perfect for my skintone!! It's yellow with no pink undertones. I love the packaging; narrow bottle with a pump! No nasty scent. I apply this with my damp beauty blender and set my tzone with maybelline dream matte powder. You hAve to blend quick because this product sets fast to a powdered finish. Stayed put without oxidizing. This is the type of foundation that looks better throughout the day. It's as if the formula melts in your skin. Def would repurchase, just wished that there were more shades incase I get lighter/darker. Edit: (3/24/13) On days where my skin is actually normal/combo, I like to mix my garnier oil free bb cream with this foundation for a semi matte finish. I got so many compliments while wearing this combo!! This foundation truly does have oil control properties. Def would repurchase!
Eyes -Unlisted Brand - EYLURE Naturalites "Super Full 080" False Lashes
aznmnkygrl808 3/19/2013 8:47:00 PM
This is a UK brand. I've seen this brand In a couple of UK youtuber videos and was debating whether or not to order them online. I found this brand at target!!! I paid $8 for these lashes. They're like demi wispies, but not as full as the ardell ones. The hairs are thinner and more spaced out compared to the ardell ones. When applied, lashes looked a bit too natural so I added one coat of mascara. Amazing!! These lashes are perfect for everyday wear. With the added mascara coat, the lashes went from blah to naturally pretty. Box came with 2 pairs of lashes plus a little vial of lash glue. The glue is pretty good. Applicator is a wand stick. Definitely would repurchase these lashes!
Polishes -China Glaze - Avant Garden Collection 2013 "Tart-y For The Party"
aznmnkygrl808 3/19/2013 8:40:00 PM
I picked up this polish and "passion for petals" from the avant garden collection. This shade is gorgeous!!! It's bold and bright. It's a medium pastel lilac color with a creme formula. Because it has a creme finish, consistency was a bit streaky and thick so this isn't a polish that you can rush with. I applied Sally hansen's base coat, 2 coats of this and 2 coats of seche vite top coat. Polish was pretty shiny before I applied my top coat. This is a unique shade because other pastel lilac shades I've come across have been more on the milky light purple shade whereas this one is darker. Def would repurchase!
I received this as a 100 point product from sephora. I love the wand; Plastic bristles with a spiked ball at the tip, which is perfect for getting those lashes by the inner corners. Plus the wand grabs onto every lash, helping to separate and lengthen. Formula is light and easy to remove. I did not experience any smudging. I personally love this mascara for my lower lashes. For my mascara routine, I first apply shiseido's nourishing mascara base, one coat of maybelline WP full n' soft, one coat of benefit they're real, and then another coat of full n' soft. I only use this mascara for my bottom lashes. Definitely would purchase the regular size once I'm done with the small tube! :)
I purchased "mauve my way", which is a medium matte purple/taupe color. Shade reminds me a of a darker version of Mac's quarry eyeshadow. These shadows are so inexpensive and the quality is pretty damn good for a drugstore product. Packaging is a silver pot with a screw top lid but you can YouTube a video on how to depot them. The pans fit into a mac eyeshadow palette. Def would repurchase this shade and check out others! :)
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Oatmeal N' Honey Natural Facial Scrub
aznmnkygrl808 3/17/2013 5:39:00 AM
I purchased this at Sally's for around $5. Amazing product! I use this before I apply my mint mask. If Im wearing makeup, ill remove my makeup first, cleanse my face with aveeno's ultra calming foaming cleanser and then use this oatmeal scrub. I personally love the st ive's apricot scrub but my skin has been clear so I wanted to check out a scrub that didn't have salicylic acid/benzoyl peroxide. The beads in this scrub are so fine yet they get the job done. I'm not a big fan of the honey scent; it reminds me of baby powder. But if the product works, then It's not a big deal. Definitely would repurchase! :)
Polishes -China Glaze - Avant Garden Collection 2013 - "Passion For Petals"
aznmnkygrl808 3/15/2013 4:50:00 AM
Gorgeous color that is Perfect for spring. Shade is a bright medium watermelon coral-pink. Formula is a creme finish. Consistency was a bit thick but one coat was super opaque but I did my usual two. I feel like you can find this particular shade in other polish lines. Essie's "enuff is enuff" is similar except Essie's one leans more red than this shade, which leans more pink.
Best drugstore eye primer!! This primer comes in a small tube, which I prefer so you won't waste any product. Color is a light pinky beige shade that becomes transparent once blended onto lids. Formula is best described by reviewer before me: slippery but sets quick. This primer really does keep your eyeshadows from creasing. I paid $12 at my local drugstore. Def would repurchase!
I love this color!!! It's an awesome all over lid shade or crease color. "Brown script" is a medium matte terracotta reddish orange brown color. I love using this with golds, bronzes and browns. Plus this color looks great by itself all over the lid with the edges blended. Also, I love layering this color over mac's quite natural paint pot. Def would repurchase! :)

aznmnkygrl808 3/14/2013 4:52:00 AM
I personally love the herbal essence shampoos/conditioners!! I never get a matching conditioner. Right now, I'm using this with the herbal essence honey conditioner. I Switch up my shampoos/conditioners every 2 months. This shampoo leaves my hair clean and the smell is amazing. I dont have a problem with frizziness but i Definitely would repurchase!
