I've been using this for a week now. I found this at Nordstrom Rack for $6.97, the regular retail is $20. I also saw on Sephora that these "Super" Perricone products were going on clearance. I wonder if this line is being discontinued. I decided to give it a shot because other Perricone Products in the past have served me well. So far I haven't really noticed anything different with my cuticles or hands. I put this on right before I go to bed. The smell is a little odd, maybe a because it is supposedly made from yogurt. I won't repurchase but I'll try to finish this off.
So because of all the very positive NYX reviews I bought 6 of them from cherryculture.com. I was not impressed with the first three which were in Peach, Pinky and Taupe. I was starting to give up on NYX blushes. Peach I thought was much too chalky and light for my NC35-ish skin. Taupe I thought was too gray and night of the living dead of a color. Too fake for contouring. Pinky was nothing like MAC's pink Swoon like I had hoped. So I keep my unopened cosmetics in a 3 tier plastic container. Yesterday I moved it and the lip was not open an so all my new unopened makeup spilled over my carpet. Granted this only dropped from about my shoulder height lets's say 4 feet. Almost all my products made out fine except for my NYX blush in Mocha. That one, the quarter of the pan actually broke off into pieces. So I thought to myself... fine, let me just open it and start using this one. I actually thought the color of this one was quite nice and flattering. So the downfall was how easily this one broke. Also, the photo of Mocha is far too fair of a pink than what it really is. The color seems more red to in person.
Fortunately, I picked this up at Rite-Aid for 75% off. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. The brush hairs are too flimpsy to get a smooth finish. After the first time you use it, it's hard to dispense product to the top of the brush possibly because from the previous times the product is already throughout the brush. The gold chrome was not near as foil shiny as I had expected. I bought this is 4 colors because it was on clearance. blah! wish I could return these now.
I agree that this product goes on matte. However, I noticed about 10 minutes after applying that product moved towards pores and lines. This product enhanced the imperfections. Not what anyone wearing makeup would want. I originally picked this up on clearance at CVS in warm ginger knowing it was going to be much too dark of a shade for me normally but maybe using it as a matte bronzer but after trying it out, I'm hoping I can return it. If it didn't have the clog poring problem, the shade would still be too orangey.
Ok so I recently decided to dig through my old nail polish colors and came across this shade. I applied 2 color coats plus a clear top coat. This stuff is awesome! Dried on smooth and the best part! It dried so quickly! I had no problems with creasing or uneven-ness. I wish L'Oreal would bring these fast drying polishes back. I've been getting compliments on my polish ever since I applied it last night =)
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Megashield Lip Color SPF 15
Angelamakeup 3/6/2012 11:53:00 AM
I picked these up after watching a youtube favorites from a beauty guru. I normally don't look in the Wet N Wild section. I picked these up in 3 shades:- It's a girl Lolly Popstar Pink Cham-pagne So far here is my take:- It's a girl:- Currently with warm toned skinned NC40, this color when applied fully is a bit too cotton candy pink on my face. However, if I dab a little bit off it seems to work well. It feels pretty moisturizing and a lot like a lip balm. Pink Cham-pagne:- Pretty iridescent pink, some people may not like this lip effect. I happen not to mind it. It's pretty hydrating on my lips without a scent so I like it.
Loose Powders -Cover Girl - Professional Loose Powder
Angelamakeup 3/6/2012 11:44:00 AM
I found out about this product from watching a youtube video. I also use high end loose powders such as shu uemura which I absolutely love but is really expensive over $40 for a tub. So I thought, why not give this a try? Use: I would say this stuff works just OK, to catch fall out and to brighten up underneath your eyes. I did not use this all over my face, I used a pressed powder for the rest of my face. Seemed easy enough to blend out. Cons: The packaging. The worse quality about this product is it's packaging, it is cheap and easy to lose product every time you open and close it. The smell is like baby powder (this may be a pro to you if you like that)
I never re-buy any nail polish because let's face it, you never run out before moving on to the next thing. I put yes because of the quality of this polish and I'd probably more of NYX's "Matte" line. It goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I use 2 coats and it doesn't seem to get all jacked up with all the activity that I do. It lasts for a good 3 to 4 days before chipping off.
Polishes -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush, Red Hot
Angelamakeup 2/24/2012 1:29:00 AM
i was worried this polish was going to suck because I also bought VS's Beauty Rush in a light pink called "How Sweet" and that color was complete junk. This one is the complete opposite and actually goes on smoothly. It seems like a whole different formula than the other one. However, sadly it comes off so quickly. It starts flaking and chipping hours later.
Polishes -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush How Sweet!
Angelamakeup 2/24/2012 1:24:00 AM
This color is absolute junk! It doesn't go on evenly, you get swatches of nail and swatches of color. I need to throw this away because I don't even see this working decently.
I bought this product in "Frenzy/Frenesie" I thought this product was going to be like Stila's old lip stains. The product is definitely pigmented and the color really pops (which I go for when I'm in a fun mood). However, the color does not go onto your lips evenly and the colorless lip balm on the other of this product does nothing to even out to fix the flaws of the application of the stain. You probably need a colored gloss over so as to not show all the lines all over your lips. Will not repurchase this is a pretty junky and disappointing product.

Lipstick -Maybelline - Wet Shine Fusion in Rose n Shine
Angelamakeup 2/19/2012 5:55:00 PM
The color is pretty and goes on smoothly. It's a shimmery natural finish. The packaging is pretty and thinner than your normal lipstick. My biggest gripe about the product is that it quickly got that gross plastic smell. And I can't apply any lipsticks on my lips that have that because because that your nose is right above your lips, it just makes me nauseous to be aware of that scent the entire time you're wearing it.
Treatments -AcneFree - Sensitive: Terminator Spot Control Gel
Angelamakeup 2/19/2012 5:51:00 PM
This came in a kit of 3 along with a cleaner and a hydrating lotion. The cleaner and lotion said it used tea tree oil. I really like both of those items in the kit. However this Spot Treatment crap is really useless. I didn't notice it helping spots at all. The active ingredient listed is Benzoyl Peroxide 2%. This started off as a gel but soon after opening it, it turned into a really liquid-y slosh-y mess that is too difficult to apply. It also turned into a yellow color. I would go with clean and clear's spot treatment gel, that was much more effective.
This stuff is just awful. I picked it up during one of Bath & Body Work's Semi Annual sales because I remembered that I liked their mentha scented lotions and lip glosses. To my huge disappointment this product is crap! The scent is nice but the product doesn't squeeze out of the bottle easily and when it does, a huge gob comes out. It is also hard to distribute over your hair. Because too much product comes out you have clumps of conditioner left around your bath tub afterwards and the next time you step into your shower it can be a gross sight afterwards.
