I absolutely love this blush for the price they are amazing quality , so pigmented and creamy texture. I had been trying to get my hands on this forever. I would really recommend it , an amazing Drug store find for me. and it has a nice glow to it. The only reason i gave it 4 lippes and not 5 is that it isn't as long wearing as a high end blush but for 5 euro its amazing.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter
Tuts311 6/24/2011 7:10:00 AM
I love the body shop body butters and i thought i would love this one but the smell was so overpowering it made me feel physically sick i used it twice and it was left sitting on my shelf. In the end i threw it out. It was nice and moisturising but unfortunately i just couldn't stand the smell of this one. It would of been nice with a little less fragrance to it.
I have to say i have strayed from this a few times and always regret it . I dont suffer from terrible acne but i do get the occasional break out and have had a lot of stress this year and my skin really went down hill nothing was fixing it i had bumps all over my forehead and acne on my chin. I decided to start using this again and within a week my skin was improving and now its totally cleared up... glad i have a back up because im nearly out of my bottle.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Delft [DISCONTINUED]
Tuts311 5/13/2011 5:06:00 PM
I love this paint pot , so glad i bought it. i mainly use this under Macs Club eyeshadow as its a duo chrome and delf really makes the green pop. I do still need to wear a primer under paint pots though as i am oily and they crease without it.
I use this to set my foundation when im extra oily it is a good bit of coverage but it works for me, and i can see myself buying it again. Im Nc15 and use Nc20 in this as it runs a shade lighter and its great for a night out :)
First off let me start by saying that in order to get rid of stretch marks you have to treat them while they are still pink.. thats when the blood is still circulating to them once they go white there isnt a lot if anything you can do . Just wondering if people realise this before trying Bio Oil ? I have used this on scars and for dry skin and it works wonders. My friend used this all through her pregnancy and after and she has no stretch marks in sight.. obviuosly the earlier you start using this the better it will work .
This powder does nothing for my oily skin at all its useless ! Much rather my msfn or my studio fix. Wont be buying this again and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone with oily skin.
Love this stuff ! I just put a coat of it over my nail Varnish and it dries in no time, it also gives your nails a lovely sheen to them . I also find it helps my nail Varnish to last a lot longer. Will buy this again as soon as i run out.
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10
Tuts311 2/2/2011 7:34:00 AM
I bought this about a year ago after hearing so many raves about it. Im always on the hunt for a good foundation for my oily skin. The SA sold me #1 ... which turned out to be way to pink on me and we cant return cosmetics here. Not only was it way to pink Im nc15 for refrence, it didnt last at all on my oily skin even over primer and set with powder it just melted off my face with the oil. i was a oily mess . Very dissapointed in this product and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone with oily skin, The Normal Double wear works so much better for me.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)
Tuts311 1/28/2011 5:19:00 PM
My HG cleanser i have been using this for over a year now and i cant say enough good things about it. It has helped my oily skin so much its unreal ! I recently got a clairasonic and i use this with it , it gets every last bit of oil and make up off my skin. I have 2 back ups. I cant ever see myself using anything else . I also use a philosophy primer and moisturiser for my extremely oily skin. I'm in love with the brand amazing !
Buy far the best foundation i have used on my extremely oily skin, it lasts like nothing else . But you do have to be careful applying this i get the best results with a damp beauty blender sponge, if i try apply this with a brush its a disaster, its a very hard foundation to work with for me anyway. But it has brilliant coverage and lasting power. Im nc15 in Mac and i wear bone in Double wear its a tiny bit to light but i try mix a bit of my mac pro longwear in with it to fix the colour. also it doesnt come with a pump :(
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder
Tuts311 1/20/2011 6:23:00 AM
Let me start buy saying i had the Mufe hd powder but swapped it away as i didnt use it everyday. So i bought the Elf one to try and see how it compared.. I have to say i actually like this better than the Mufe Hd !! The mufe did nothing for me, but this actually helps control my oily skin and i notice a diffrence when i apply it. I have no idea why this works for me and the other didn't but i'm very happy it does considering the price diffrence. I would really advise anyone wanting the Mufe Hd powder to buy this one first :)
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Oilatum Natural Face Repair Cream
Tuts311 1/18/2011 1:43:00 PM
Let me start by saying I am oily so i use this as a PM moisturiser . Its a horrible moisturiser it sits on the skin and never quite sinks in. didnt make my skin any better or worse . I eventually gave up on it and im now using it to moisturise my new tattoo rather than just throw it out. I Wouldn't buy it again
This is a lovely very pigmented blush, i think its a great dupe for Macs Springsheen in fact its pretty much identical to it only Rose gold is more pigmented !. You do need a light hand when applying this or you could easily over do it . to much and you could look like a shimmery mess but over all I am very happy with this blush and i would buy it again if i ever run out .
Love this product i had been wanting to try it for a while after hearing raves about it. It exfoliates so well and leaves my skin feeling very moisturised which i love because i hate putting moisturiser on after a shower and waiting around for it to dry so this is my perfect solution. The only thing i dont like is i have to keep it in a paper bag i didnt get any packaging with it and it is a little pricey but I would buy it again
