BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
Agentdouble0 10/13/2012 12:37:00 PM
I was so looking forward to this product! I bought it with high hopes as I already had many BB creams, some of which are from Asia so they're the real thing. This was worse than a tinted moisturizer in my opinion! I don't have oily skin but if you don't set this with a powder and touch up periodically you will look like a grease ball. Maybe this will work better in the winter when there's no sun but I have no clue. I purchased this in the color dark which I think would work but I have golden yellow undertones and that color had SUPER red undertones, so it definitely won't work for you unless you have those under tones. I still love Maybelline though, just not this product!
BB Cream -Skinfood - Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF20 PA+ (Shade 02)

I like this product a lot! It works a LOT better than any of my American BB creams ( i have the Smashbox one, and Maybelline one). The Skin Food near me now sells this in 8 different shades. The color I purchased is #7 Almond Beige, it matches my skin shade perfectly. I love the smell, and the coverage, it's not much but it's enough for me. I would use this everyday, and since school is starting up soon, I'll be wearing it to school! It's light and refreshing. Deff a repurchase!
This is deff a special occasion only mascara! It takes FOREVER to get off. It does make my lashes extremely long, full, and dark though. It just takes too much to get off. I'm still in the process of finding my everyday mascara.
This product is OK. I can only use this in the winter months. I only use this for VERY special occasions or photo shoots because it does look a bit unnatural and the staying power sucks. I can only wear it for a few hours in the summer (like 2-3 hours) before it wears off. In the winter it does stay a bit longer, but nowhere near long enough for me to wear it to school and have it last. I end up looking like an oily mess and I don't even have oily skin!
I love it! I have normal skin, but I'm acne prone so I have to find something that won't break me out. This is it! It's not greasy, it lasts all day, and it is full coverage. As of now I have no acne, but I do have the scars, so I use this product to spot treat the problem areas. It looks super natural, and is so light weight you don't even know its there. I'm the shade caramel and it is my perfect shade. I love this product, but it could come in better packaging. A pump would be nice, but it's still marvelous.

This was my very first powder, and I used it by itself and it didn't really do much. Now I look back and realize how cakey my face looked. The sponge is a complete waste and makes me look even worse. There is almost no color pay off. I'm able to wear their "darkest" shade, which is Tan, and it's not even that dark at ALL! Their never seems to be a good color range with this brand, which I hate. I mainly use this powder for setting makeup because it's so sheer. Overall, I do keep buying it but for different reasons than what it's for.
When they say "industrial strength", they mean it! This covers EVERYTHING! I have post acne scaring in a few places, so on days I don't want to wear much makeup, I just cover up the problem areas and under my eyes. My shade is 05, and it's almost perfect, it could be a little lighter though. I just throw this in my school makeup bag and head out the door, it's the perfect size for touch ups after P.E or just mid-day. I don't know if this is the best for oily skin, because my skin is normal and doesn't get shiny at all, so I'm not sure if this will clog pores. Overall, it's an amazing product.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Blush - Mellow Wine 833D

I feel like this color works great on ANY skin tone. It's the most beautiful looking plummy, pinky, berry color on my cheeks and it gives me this really natural looking flush. It's my go to color and it works year round. Tip: if you place it over NYX cream blush/stick blush in Tea Rose 05, it lasts ALL DAY, and looks great! They are like the same exact shade. Overall, it's a wonderful product for such a low price, it's even better than some of my pricier blushes.

I think these products as a whole are great! I love this color, it's perfect for the summer, spring, fall, and winter. It's supper hydrating, and it's very sheer so if I use it at school it's not hard to re-apply. I do like the packaging, it's not anything fancy, but it's functional and i like how the packaging corresponds to the color of the product. Overall, I think everyone should buy this! Nice one Revlon!
