There is NO WAY IN HELL THIS IS EVEN CLOSE TO BOBBI BROWN'S PALE PINK! I have pale pink and it's ridiculous how anyone could even fathom comparing the two! Just because it's bright in the pan alike- doesn't mean it's comaprable or a dupe! Wow, first of all you get what you pay for- this blush in any color is CHALKY as hell..I mean really??? Pure rubbish. If you want cheap, stick to something like Revlon or Maybelline! The FALLOUT is like crazy! Pigmentation sandy not smooth. I absolutely HATE this product. Tried to give this away but just threw it in the trash. Waste of a dollar- seriously the plastic container it's in is worth more than this rubbish!
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Matte Lipstick in 901B Think Pink
harmony888 11/5/2012 5:24:00 AM
A very pretty face brightening shade of pink/peach.. drying formula so I use a lipbrush and moisturizer before I apply. I haven't found a shade quite as pretty so I'll repurchase despite the formula! $1@ Walgreens. For reference I'm: 125-MUFE Tawny-EL Doublewr Natural-BobbiBwn NC30-MAC StudioFx
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational - Born With It
harmony888 11/5/2012 5:16:00 AM
Very pretty everyday lippie! I hope they never discontinue this. The shade is a pinky nude depending on your skin tone, it could lean to a nice natural color, or a pretty subtle but brightening shade.. I have very pigmented lips and this is perfect and lasts a few hours! $5 at Walmart.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm- Sweetheart
harmony888 11/5/2012 5:05:00 AM
The shade and formula are perfect. Very easy to apply, wearable bright shade and lasts a very long time. A lipstick stain that is not drying at all!! ♥ A must have for me!
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational #465 Madison Mauve Lipstick
harmony888 11/5/2012 4:57:00 AM
Such a pretty wine color! It's the only one of its kind I own, not too dark very wearable!
A must have in your lipstick drawer- not phenomenal, but a go to shade for everyday! Similar to MAC angel, and MAC cremecup but softer and a little paler; much more wearable. For reference I'm: EL Doublewear- Tawny MUFE- 125 Lancome Dualfinish- Matte Nu3 MAC STudiofix-NC30 BobbiB- Natural
I WOULD CRY IF THEY EVER DISCNT'D this!!!!!! It's the perfect shade of pinky peach and I JUST LOVE it to death. I have more than a coup[le of backups. It's so underrated and I just adore this shade on ME!!!!!! I use a lip brush and swipe some moisturizing lip balm then swipe this onto my lips- Voila!PERFECT! smooth and soft! And you HAVE to try this on your CHEEKS! It's the loveliest color I promise- omg, did I say I love this color SOOO MUCH. I'm 39 and I have never loved a color this much in my life. $5 at Walmart! For reference I'm blonde/ash w/brown, brown eyes: EL Doublewear- Tawny MUFE- 125 Lancome Dualfinish- Matte Nu3 MAC STudiofix-NC30 BobbiB- Natural
**Pic of Revlon dupe I LOVE this shade but unfortunately it's discontinued. I have searched high and low for such a subtle pinky peach shade such as this to no avail! BUT I have found one that comes pretty close (on me) but may vary by skintone. It's Revlon's Sky Pink..it's on the pinkier side, but outdoors you can definitely see that it has some peach dimension- this Revlon is my HG shade right now and I would die if they discontinued that too!! I've tried other MAC shades and YSl shades but they are wayy too peach for my skin. For reference I'm 125 in MUFE, NC30 MAC, Natural in BobbiBrown.
Crème -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation
harmony888 10/23/2012 12:45:00 PM
I hate that you cannot apply this with a stippling brush as it doesn't spread well for some reason unlike with almost ALL other foundations (liquid and foundation stick) BUT it's oil-free and I like that. I tried using a stippling brush and it was awful! It just settled into my skin and didn't have a smooth finish the way the Bobbi B. foundation stick had..maybe since there's oil in that one. The HUGE plus for me though, is that after I took pictures all night- I was surprised to see that it looked flawless in pictures, and NO ghostface finally. The MUFE, MAC studiofix, EL doublewear specially- are ghostface foundations for me and I absolutely hate that. Having talc and/or dioxide as a first ingredient will do that. SO I guess I have to use a foundation brush which I hate but it's worth it. The sponge it comes with eats up all the foundation and it's the worst thing you can use, you're better off using fingers. But the BB artists are the only ones that do PERFECT colormatching compared to MAC, Lancome, EL and MUFe sales associates. I wonder why. I always had to go return it and color match myself!! I hate that! The BB associates at Nordstrom ARE THE BEST!
C'mon, if sweet ole' Taylor Swift can ROCK it- so can WE!!! This is fantastic! One swipe on the upper apples of cheeks is all you need- so much fun, so simple and I love this with a nude lip and natural shadow for day and smokey eye for eve. For Vegas or a dim lit dinner, I swipe on apples of shoulders and decollete..in summer with St Tropez tanner.. highlight a swipe straight down the middle of your thigh and straight behind your lower leg! LOVE this sooo much. Take a brush liner and line the inner of eyes or right above black eyeliner on lids. It's endless!!!!!!!!!
WHITE FACE foundation. The number one (first) ingredient is titanium dioxide which makes you white in pictures. Worse than MAC studio fix though I stopped using that too, MAC also makes "whiteface" with its TALC being number one and titanium dioxide as well. Returning tomorrow. Waste of time and effort.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - 3M - Nexcare Acne Patch
harmony888 9/27/2012 7:25:00 AM
Holey Sh+tballs!!! This stuff works. 3M makes these adhesive bandages that absorn puss from wounds, and these nurses in Hong Kong discovered that if they cut it up they can use it on their pimples. So basically 3M already had it going on but the Chinese found new use for it! A match made in heaven! Thanks 3M and Chinese nurses :)!!!
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Studio Angled Foundation Brush
harmony888 9/24/2012 9:11:00 AM
This thing eats up all the foundation and doesn't blend well. Waste of money, get the Eco tools finishing kabuki instead. I literally just threw this in the garbage a minute ago.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
harmony888 9/23/2012 6:20:00 AM
I compared and swatched ALL my foundations: Revlon photoready and MAC- the consistency the shade match, the blendability, the coverage, MUFE hands down was superior. I immediately was THRILLED to throw theose other foundations in the garbage. I know people say drugstore is okay but eventually they ruin your skin. MAC seems like a drugstore quality compared to MUFE. Never again will I buy drugstore brands or MAC. My skin has gotten progressively worse over a 15 year span since I dabbled with drugstore foundations like Loreal, Maybelline, etc.. I say go cheapp on shadows, lippies, but NEVER go cheap on what is going to be sucked into your face!!
Your towels are bleached after wiping your face with this product..now how in the world can that EVER BE GOOD FOR YOU?? My son's skin has never been the same since he tried this for a few months. The number one thing that is terrible is that it strips your skin so much, just layers and layers of it! Too much that EVERYONE ON PROACTIV HAS PALE WHITE GHOST FACES.. it's so much better to use a gentle wash like glycolic acid and after we discontinued this the glycolic wash we bought from the derm elliminated all his acne..Pro activ is just a HIGH does of benzoyl, and my our derm already said NOT to use it, but we tried anyway..uggh this makes skin so thin, uneven colored, white and pale, plus when you wash it off it's still too strong and bleaches your towels gawwd this is the worst product in the world.
