I think this product is good but it broke me out after one day! for real so I returned it. I got medium and I've broken out to mac products before but I thought ok Im gonna try this powder. Back to the store it went. The itching was so intense. This powder makes your face SUPER matte . It controlled oil however my face was SOOO itchy! I got MUFE HD powder we will see how I like that.
What they say comparing this to silke creme by LM but 30 dollars cheaper! I love it. It covers more than a medium coverage Id hate to see what the full coverage is like! I love this foundation and its CHEAP! I prefer this over LM because silke creme on me transfered onto peoples clothes so easy. and it was embarrasing. This does not
Skincare - Face -Mary Kay - Mary Kay Oil Mattifier
SamanthaKral 2/22/2009 10:05:00 PM
Love this product and I've used some of the best. About 7 years ago Mary Kay used to me for old ladies. This is an AMAZING brand and they have great top of the line products. This oil mattifier really works. It last about 6 to 7 hours which is great for me. It creates a great canvas for make up to where you don't have to use much foundation. I highly recommend it.. and for the price its worth the try.
Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation

I have been using this for 3 days so far. I love it! I used to wear LM silk creme but I have noticed it kinda dried out my skin a little and as Im getting older my skin is changing and I now have combo skin. Well on my silk creme by LM it would get on people when I hugged them or if I layed my head on my husband it would get on his shirts since he wears alot of black shirts. Well, this my ladies this is amazing. Like everyone said a little goes a long way. I got this foundation after looking on sephora and then I went to the store and they were like Oh ya try this. Im using in combo with lorac aqua prime and im getting amazing results. I break out to alot of things and I am happy to report no allergies to this product. for reference I break out to Mac, benefit, smashbox, and chanel foundations. I do good with MUFA, Clinique, and LM. Try this product cause for this low cost its totally worth it!
Powder -Jane Iredale - Amazing Base Loose Finishing Powder
SamanthaKral 11/21/2008 2:09:00 PM
I should have stuck with my laura mercier.. this thing may last me a month. I like a good coverage and the aesthetician said this product was good i bought it in warm silk good color match. however, not good coverage I have to actually dip the brush INTO the minerals like twice to get good full coverage. So i wear it on work days where i dont care about coverage cause i wear scrubs and Im in the medical field.

Well girls, this product is amazing. I usually use LM's Silk Creme but I wanted a creme to powder product to carry with me in my purse to use on the fast make up days. This product has become my daily routine. It is buildable and it matches my color to the tee. I use Gentle Ivory and it covers all my blemishes and makes my skin have a dewey glow. It almost feels wet when applied onto your skin but drys fast so no worries. Please try this product. My sales rep told me this is new to the USA Im not sure how long they have been selling it here its not on any department store websites as of yet either so go check it out you wont be disappointed. For reference, Im fair skined Combo skin prone to breakouts near my jawline..20 year old -My color for this product is Gentle Ivory
Shampoo -Back to Basics - Coconut Mango Moisture Quenching Shampoo
SamanthaKral 10/2/2007 8:53:00 PM
I really like this stuff. I got it at my salon when my hair stylist suggested this for my thick curly hair. Curly hair needs moisture and I had tried Ouidad products with no luck. This stuff makes my hair awesome. I used Matrix Sleek and smooth as well but it wasnt good on my curly hair days. This shampoo by back to basics is good for my regular curly days and my flat iron straight days. I suggest this! You dont get alot as not the bet packaging and it is the same price as Matrix but this smells so much better.
I love eyeliner, and I have bought eyeliner from almost every brand. This eyeliner is my HG it is absolutely amazing. I complimented a new lady at my work on her lovely eyeliner and asked what she used. She then told me about this product. Later that day I went and got some and then came LOVE! I love this product. This has so much staying power its amazing. It's bold when you want it to be and you can make it a light line as well. For me I like bold. This has the precision and the boldness of liquid eyeliner but smoothly goes on like a pencil. AMAZING.
I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!!!!!!!!!!!! This is my HG I have finally found. This makes my skin smooth and flawless. I don't use the sponge to apply, I use my chanel foundation brush to apply and it makes me sooooooo flawless. Oh I am so happy! For being a creme it is light. I do not mind paying the amount I paid for it because you only have to use a dot size amount to cover your entire face. This is my favorite LM product. P.S. If you have really smooth skin and have good color then I wouldn't suggest this for you since this is her foundation with the most coverage.
Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - translucent loose powder
SamanthaKral 5/19/2007 11:31:00 PM
This is soooo great. I have combo skin and I love this stuff. I know you really dont have to use alot but i do like to use more than recommended but i use LM silk creme foundation which is her thickest. I hope to buy the travel compact translucent powder so i can tote it around easier. It is a pretty bulky container and it can get a big messy but its worth it!
Primer/ Corrector -Laura Mercier - Foundation Primer
SamanthaKral 5/19/2007 11:27:00 PM
I hate smashboxs primer it broke me out so bad. So on my quest for my HG primer and foundation, I came across Laura Mercier. I had never heard of this line before. Well, I shelled out alot of money for many of her products and I am very satisfied. My face looks flawless. This is a light product. Use only a tiny dot amount and it will go all over your face. I use this under my silk creme foundation by LM. She is amazing ! Thanks LM for another great product.
