This has been in my rotation for a longgggg time and I cannot believe I forgot to write a review on this one.First of all this is not a gel based foundation like they say on the website but it has a mousse like consistency which is very easy to apply with the fingers, at least in my opinion. Another way to use this foundation is with the Beauty Blender This product when used with the Beauty Blender gives amazing results without the heavy caked on look. Knock on wood this one did not break me out so far..so there is hope for some of us :) This is medium to heavy coverage foundation imo. Overall after using it for this nearly 6 months, can safely say this is one of my hg foundations.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)
dv_27 6/23/2011 5:10:00 PM
Even though its expensive..I bought this coz I fell for the hype and now I am too scared to use it often coz it sheds like my hair lol :P . This is the most expensive brush I own and I like it but obv minius the shedding part.. I use this to apply MAC Face & Body and it gives me an airbrushed effect better than applying with my fingers..I dont use heavy foundation so i cant compare there.I use this brush to apply powder/blush too so its good. I can say anything bout shedding will update as that happens. Taking 1 lippie off for the $$$$
Handsdown best foundation/tinted moisturizer ever! Love how this can be so so light and yet buildable.For me this works best when I use with my fingers to apply this product.Very good coverage it does cover marks/redness and noticed that whenever I am using this product I can skip the concealer..Dewy glowy finish on me. Lots od product for the price and squirt bottle is convinient. Practical Observations - Can be bought only at the MAC store which can be a pain coz its best to be color matched in person than online. Its a MYSBB foundation as its liqiud based and finish is dewy, it could be a big no no for oily skin and if you are breakout prone better to test it out before buying the actual product. Lots of concerns with the product separating..the MA said shaking the bottle helps...so we will see about that. Overall I am happy that I got to try this product. UPDATE***** I am so sad to write this..this product broke me out :( It increases the redness in my chin area.
I bought this lipstick or rather lipclick in the color BareHug after watching a Youtube video. I am always game for a nude lipstick and this one fits the bill for me.Its a peachy tan lipstick with a hint of pink so on my pigmented lips it gives me a MLBB nude color.This is nothing like the old Dew Drenched lipsticks, IMO this version far far better than those. I like smell this lipstick its nothing too overpowering, packaging is also very convinient and cute. Bare Hug reminds me of the color Freckletone but I like this lipclick even better.,
This is one drugstore gem which did some amazing wonders to my skin. Recently I have been breaking out and nothing seemed to work on my skin, used this 2 nights ago as a mask and was amazed by the results.The size of my simples reduced and using this as a spot treatment has helped them go down further.I am very very impressed. I am so happy with this product.
Tinted Moisturizer -Wet 'n' Wild - Ultimate Sheer Tinted Moisturizer--Sunkissed
dv_27 4/15/2011 9:09:00 AM
First of all this a very nice tinted moisturizer for so little a price tag.There was a 40% sale in RiteAid when i grabbed this, so it worked out to a 2.50 for this product which is sweetttttt.Ok back to the product which has decent amount of coverage. I have used both HardCandy and Covergirl, So this review I am going to compare Wetnwild to these other 2 products.I am giving this TM a 5 star rating as it has'nt separated or given me breakouts so far. CONSISTENCY - & FINISH WetnWild - Liquid slightly towards the runny side and since its not thick and goopy and its obviously very easy to apply. It dries down to a powdery matte finish and it can get a bit(teeny) oil if worn alone.So setting with powder is a must. HardCandy - Creamy applies very easily has a very slight shimmer which works well on the skin. This has the dewy look to it and setting with powder is not a must but a choice. Covergirl - Liquidy like WnW but super sheer so u need to use more product. This also gives a dewy look but did turn yellow on me. Super sheer so setting with powder is a must. COLOR CHOICES - WetnWild - I got this in the color Sunkissed which is the darkest shade in the lot. HardCandy - I got this in Tan which looks super light in the tube but on skin it blends well on my NC40 skintone. Covergirl - I got this in Medium to Dark which turned yellow on me..yuck. COVERAGE - WetnWild - Light to medium coverage depending on how clear your skin is. The coverage is pretty decent for a TM. HardCandy - Best coverage of all these three products.. Covergirl - Poor coverage its like applying water on your face. If I was new to the TM field..would suggest you first start with HardCandy, WetnWild and then the Covergirl. That's just my order of preference.
Moisturizers -Olay - Age Defying Intensive Nourishing Night Cream
dv_27 4/12/2011 7:52:00 AM
Looked wonderful on paper, on my skin it translated to red blotches and a mess.Very light weight and non greasy though.
Why oh why did this break me out, offlate my skin is acting up with anything it comes into contact with and its driving me nuts.I used this once and the next day I was presented with some amazing breakouts.Another rant - it turned yellow on me after a little while. This moisturizer is super sheer and if you are looking for even a average coverage look elsewhere.Its like a runny moisturizer, it just sits on your skin that is all. If you are trying to decide between this or the HardCandy tinted moisturizer, try the HC first.
Let me start of by saying I have pigmented lips trying and to find a nude lipstick without wanting to look like a corpse is something I have'nt achieved so far. On me this lipstick comes out as a brownish red with 2 swipes which is great but not what i am looking for. The lipstick by itself is amazing quality.
Lipstick -Korres - Mango Butter Lipstick - Nude 33
dv_27 3/27/2011 12:02:00 PM
When Korres says butter they really mean it..this is first lipstick i have tried that goes on very smoothly, moisturizing, no weird taste or smell and truly does feel like butter on my dry lips..Back to the color, its a nude color that leans more towards the pink..i was expecting a little peach but its a pink mlbb color.This is a very sheer lipstick which i like and the color can be built up.I just wish it was a little bit peachy. I wish my Sephora had all the colors but their selection is limited,
Stumbled upon this little beauty in Whole foods where had testers of all the colors and I bought this in the color Rose which gives a nice reddish pink tint. This glides on very smoothly, without any weird taste or smell. This is my first Burts Bees lip product..i think i am gonna buy the color Tiger Lily next. I paid 6 bucks for this product which is a little steep but the product overall is very good.
Treatments -John Masters - vitamin C anti-aging face serum
dv_27 3/16/2011 11:56:00 AM
I really wanted and thought this serum would work for me but it did give me couple of breakouts on my cheeks. It smells good, skins in very quickly not greasy at all but the breakouts suck..
Lipstick -Flirt - Chickstick Smooth & Shiny Lipcolor in Shimmy
dv_27 3/15/2011 7:45:00 PM
This looks beautiful in the tube..if only i could get that on my lips..it translates into a greyish nude on my lips which was horrible. Sorry this is not for me.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst in 070 Soft Nude [DISCONTINUED]
dv_27 3/15/2011 7:41:00 PM
Why oh why did i even buy this product..on the tube its a beautiful peachy nude on my lips its a matte bright pink and it looks terrible on me. It glides on the lips very nicely but i dont like the finish or the color it gave my lips.
Aww what a pleasant suprise..i picked this one up in Nordstrom Rack for fun and also my obsession with nude lipglosses. I have nothing bad to say about this product.. No weird smell/taste.Sheer with right amount of pigmentation and non sticky. Best of all its a nice tan nude MLBB lippie..i was going to pick up Viva glam 2 but i ended up going with this and i am very happy.
