Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow New Look Mascara

I've been using benefit they're real and thought that was hg status. I went back to Dior as of yesterday because I needed new mascara and noticed they came out with this one. Well I'm sorry I strayed from Dior for so long! All of their mascaras are amazing and worth the money. New look is great, super dark and lengthening. I like the I'm wearing mascara look and I also got a compliment on my lashes. Will be using Dior mascara from now on. Doesn't hurt that the packaging is very nice too.
Nars Laguna just didn't work for me. I like nars products, the packaging, and even though expensive they last a long time. The color looks great in the pan and the powder is very silky and buildable. However, on my fair skin the color is off somehow I look very gold if you will and at the end of the day very slick and greasy eventhough I used primer and foundation. Also a big test for me is how it comes out in pictures and it did not look good. So I have gone back to my favorite bronzer at the moment Mac refined golden which I really like.
Ok for some reason Target is now discontinuing this line and it is all on clearance. I got this for 11.99 which is the only reason I bought it and the good reviews on MUA. Well it doesn't smell bad but it gave me a yellow tint! I seem to have that problem with a lot of self tanners. Anyway back to Target it goes.
Totally disappointed in this product. I like Benefit but this product is stupid. It's not a primer it just makes your skin shinier and doesn't make your makeup go on or stay any better. The pink color is so sheer that to me it was undetectable on my face and I don't think it complemented my skintone or complexion. On top of that it made me breakout and was super expensive.
This is a great product! I bought it specifically for my undereyes not for lids. I seriously use primer for everything on my face because of oily skin. My undereye concealer seems to disappear by the end of day or night and I always great some sort of raccon eyes from mascara or eyeliner deciding to stray. This really does the trick. I put this on before all of that and my makeup holds up. If you pump the dipenser very lightly you get just enough product and this will last a long time being that I don't use it everyday. Even told friends about this product. Will repurchase.
I have mixed feelings about this product. It's basically tinted sunscreen. I liked the color it goes on sheer and evens out your complexion. But...with my oily skin even with primer and powder it wasn't enough coverage..too bad because the product smelled great, the tube is huge, and it had a nice consistency. I took pictures that day and my skin looked pretty good but I'm just so used to more coverage and it is a little pricey. I was thinking of mixing it with my heavier foundations to see what happens. If it were a little more coverage this product would be gold.
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer

Now if I had any makeup product that is hands down my favorite it has to be this concealer. I have been using this concealer for years and with that I mean I have gone through the 3 times Estee Lauder has changed the packaging. Everytime I would freak out and thought they discontinued it. The color is perfect, coverage is perfect and it lasts. Sometimes when I'm lazy and don't want to put on makeup I just use some of this concealer and I'm good to go. I will use this until I die or they stop making it whichever comes first.
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

I always have this in my makeup drawer. I end up trying other brands and always come back to this one. Gives long wearing, natural looking coverage. Looks great in photos too. I tried the regular double wear and didn't like it as well. The colors are great too. I heart Estee Lauder.
Liquid -Victoria's Secret - Soft Focus Liquid Foundation SPF 20 [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this product and sadly it is going back to the store. I was so impressed with the primer I thought this would be just as good. It's an ok foundation but not for the price. I like the packaging and consistency but it didn't provide the coverage I wanted.
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - body drench tanning spray
1alexa 6/2/2010 2:27:00 AM
This is a great product. I wish it made me darker though. I use it if I need a quick dose of color. The color is natural and the airbrush spray works great never streaks. The smell is ok wish it wasn't as strong but at least it's coconut and not DHA! I also wish it was cheaper, even with my Sally's card it's still like 15 or 16 bucks and you don't get that many applications..wah. I do find myself coming back to this old stand by after I stray to other self tanners that don't work as well.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Gelee in medium deep

sticky, smelly, and gross. That about sums up this product. I wish L'Oreal would change the fragrance of their tanners it makes me nauseous.
All I have to say is who came up with this mascara wand??? I purchased due to what the product said it would do to your lashes then opened and saw the wand and it looked like something from the transformers. Product totally sucked.
I've been waiting for this product to come out and I finally bought it today! I have been using maybelline mascaras lately. I have tried every mascara out there. I do have a few favorites and this one makes the list. I have long, thick, dark lashes so I like to play them up. This does a good job of adding lengthe, volume, lift, and separation. Maybelline finally jumped on the fiber mascara train. That's the secret ingredient in this mascara that gives the false lash look. If you look at the brush you can see the little fibers in the actual mascara formula and this stuff builds your lashes. For 5 bucks I will be repurchasing. Lets hope it doesn't get discontinued.
I have finally got around to trying this. It has been on my list but I had to try others first. I am very impressed for a drugstore brand. I have tried a lot of foundations low end to high end and this is definitely comparable to high end foundations. I have an oily t-zone so I use primer and this and my face holds up pretty well. I like the consistency as well. It is not cakey, drying or thick. It spreads well and evens out my complexsion without having to use a lot so I don't look like I'm wearing a mask. It also gives a dewy look despite not having any shimmer to it like the revlon photo ready which I didn't like because of the shimmer. Good color selection as well although I do wish it had a higher spf. Overall a good product and I most likely will repurchase.
Very impressed with this blush! Great color, consistency, and it's cheap! The only thing is that it's small so it's kind of hard to get to with my own blush brush. I will definitely be repurchasing this and trying other colors from covergirl blush as well.
