Treatments (Eye) -Bare Escentuals - RareMinerals Active Triple Eye Cream

Another Be product that i thought I would try out. My HG eye moisturizer is clinique all about eyes. This triple treatment eye cream takes care of the puffiness under my eyes. but it also irritates my eyes if i use on my upper lids which Clinique all about eyes does not. I'll use this up but go back to my old standby. fairly high price but not out of the norm for a mid range product line.
This has an Ew kind of scent to it, but it is a nice average moisturizer. i've used almost half my product so it's a product i use just not one I love. fairly high price for somehing I only reach for to use up not because i think it's a HG. not a rebuy and only 4 because the smell turns me off.

I wish the packaging on this was a little different. Getting the right amount of product out is a little difficult. I only need a little to smooth over forehead and t zone and this does cut the shine and control my super oily t zone.Fairly high price but worth it to find something that mattifies I think the scent is awful but it fades and I use it Under my primer and liquid foundation. Only got a 4 because of the off Fragrance.

I bought this to try when summer came because I was at the clinique counter. Somewhat of an impulse buy. i'm glad I did, i like this product. After reading the reviews i put some in a smaller spray bottle and put it in my fridge. Became a nice pick me up after working outside or after cleaning the house. I use the original bottle after my origins cleanser because i get warming sensation with that. this spray cools it down fast. I have the clarifying Lotion 2 (toner) already. but it's nice to know that this can act as a toner if needed. I've also used this over my BE minerals loose powder foundation to set it and get a dewy look. It worked for me even though I see it hasn't worked for some of the other reviewers. so yeah this product is a mulity task winner for me> ( now I want to try MAc Fx+)

Doesn't take a lot of product to put thin layer over face. Has a minty fragrance but it's not to strong. I leave it on for 5 minutes and follow with clarifying lotion 2 (toner) than moisture surge spray. I had a Pimple on my lower right cheek that nothing would clear up. after one use this pimple was gone the next morning and the surface of my skin looked smoother too. I've only been using this for 2 weeks. twice a week and so far this product does everything it claims to. Now I have a pimple on my left lower cheek so we'll see if that clers up by tommorow.
Has a nice not overpowering spearmint scent. Lathers very well and rinses off clean. does sting eyes if you get some product in them.You do not need a lot to do your whole face. 18.50 for 5 oz.after using my face does not feel tight and the surface feels smooth. a little warming after use I spray my clinique moisture surge on my face to counteract that.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Eye Studio Color Pearls Marbleized

Picked this up to try something new and i was looking for a bronze eyeshadow. The bronze side is nice has shimmer. Soft texture smooth application, buildable. pink marbelized side is a lighter shade of bronze if you keep swiping it starts to look exactly like the darker bronze side. i had a little fallout. not long lasting even with eye primer. started to crease after about 4 hours. The package is plastic and the lid is hard for me to open. I actually put my thumb nail in the shadow as i forced it open. Cute to try out but not a rebuy for me. MAybe would work better over a brown base?
hard even using a lighter to soften doesn't help this one.

One of those I don't know what I as thinking buys. all the colors come out pink. container hard to open. I did keep the mirror though Nice size to carry in purse and you can view your whole face. Tossed the lipglosses.
Looks pretty in the package then when i applied it very lightly, Boom the color pink !! not trying aziza products again.
Blush -Estee Lauder - BlushLights Creamy CheekColor

i bought this last year when i had a really good tan. The color is way to dark for me right now. It blends out well with smooth application. It's starting to dry out a little in the compact. the only reason i would not repurchse is because powder blushes seem to work better for me.
This is a nice soft pink when i swatch it on my hand but when i blend it on my cheeks it just makes my face look sunburned. I've tried cream blushes before with no luck. Powders seem work better for me. The formula is a little dry but blends well. package is bulky.
Bought this in indigo (blue). went on smooth enough has a very light shimmer to it. smudges fact and does not last long. not a rebuy. too many other great gel eyeliners out there.Glass container with a tacky label on the black plastic lid.
Minty and tingly this color is ruby red with shimmer (hence the name).Loved it finished the tube in about 6 months I did not use daily.

Dark gray which is what i was looking for, bt it doesn't apply smooth and doesn't last long. Though it was inexpensive it was a waste of money.
