Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin
Autumn13 7/18/2012 11:47:00 AM
I received a sample of this and I actually liked it. I used up the entire bottle but I didn't cut into it. I will be purchasing the full size. I love that you can put it on and no other e/s if you're in a hurry. UD's eye primer is the one that I keep going back to but I do try other ones just to try different ones. I have oily lids and UD's e/p is the only that keeps the oil at bay and keep my e/s on until I take it off, which is usually 14 hours later.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara
Autumn13 7/18/2012 11:39:00 AM
I gave it 3stars cause it priced reasonably. But, I had the same result as Joy2uandme. It looks great and then after an hour or two, the lashes droops and the flakes starts. And, heavens if I forget to check, the mascara flakes are all over my face - not a pretty look. I may try it during the winter time, if it doesn't dry out by then. I won't repurchase since there are plenty other d/s mascaras that work really well for me.
I love a lot of Laura's product but this is not one of them and will not be repurchasing. I have oily lids and this causes creasing about 5-6 hours later. It's great if you want to use for a short period but it doesn't have longevity as some of the famous ones out there.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Magic Lumi - Light Infusing Primer
Autumn13 7/13/2012 10:29:00 AM
I like this product for highlight more than anything else. As a face primer, I would only use for weekends or date nights. It doesn't last as long as my other favs. I think by the sixth hour, my makeup is almost gone and by 8th hour, it's completely gone. But, as a highlight, this is one of the best I've tried. I will repurchase for that purchase alone.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Colour Riche Caresse- US shades
Autumn13 7/3/2012 4:03:00 PM
I purchased Sheer Linen and I love it! It's MLBB. It's perfect for work and it last on me until lunch time and that's better than other d/s brands I've tried. The color has not migrated on me. The texture is quite lovely and keeps my lips moist throughout the day. I still love my lip butters but this is does not have any fine glitters, which I found in one or two of the sheer lip butters. I've already snagged a backup. If you're on the fence, you can wait until they one of the d/s have a BOGO.
This is by far one of the best BBs I've tried. I've tried both Asian and some the US BB brands. I'm on my 3rd tube and I have another back up. Another product I can't go without. I am using the others that I've purchased but I have to put in additional work in order to get the finish I like. When I am in a hurry, I use Cho Bo Yang. I use my hand to apply and I'm out the door within minutes.
Bronzers -Smashbox - Bronze Lights - Sunkissed Matte
Autumn13 6/22/2012 11:54:00 AM
I have the Sunkissed Matte but you can see minute shimmer - very fine. You have to be really close to the product to see shimmer. After my BB cream, I place a very light dusting of this all over and then a bit deeper as a blusher. It gives me a nice healthly glow - sunkissed. :). I use this on weekends when I can't be bother with a full face makeup. It's perfect for during errands on the weekend.
Blush -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Radiant Blush
Autumn13 6/22/2012 11:47:00 AM
These were a surprised because they are that good! I was there killing time when I saw these and two for $12, how can I say no. So, I purchased Dollface and Peach something. I haven't tried the peachy one, yet. I've been using Dollface. It has staying power. They remind me of Tarte 12-hour amazonian blush. I have four of the Tarte's but I've been using VS' blushes lately. They have a slight shimmer and just enough to forego the highlight. I love them and more than likely, I will repurchase them. Dollface is a perfect pink and buildable. So, usually a swipe or two wil be more than enough to get me thru a 12-hour day. I've been using Dollface for nearly three weeks and I had yet to make dent. That alone is worth the price.
When I first got this, I said, "what the heck is this?". It looks like brown mascara. So, I held off using it. Two weeks later, I tried it and I don't know how to it so it got all over my brows. Yuk! Practice makes Perfekt! The first time I tried it, it took me almost three minutes to put it on. Today, it's two swipes on each brow and I'm done! I don't know if I can go back to the pan or pencil brow fillers. Yes, I have a backup. I'm scared of runnning out. It's so easy to use and perfect all the time since.
Powder -Christian Dior - Diorskin Forever Flawless Fusion Compact (2011 version)
Autumn13 6/22/2012 11:29:00 AM
I wasn't looking for a powder foundation but somehow the SA showed me this one and I love it. I have it in 40 and it's perfect for the summer. I've hit pan and have a back up already. Yes, a bit on the expensive side but this is where I have to problem with the cost if the expectations are met. I have combo skin. It stays put all day, no shine, no retouching and make my skin looks flawless.
Lipstick -Revlon - Superlustrous Lipstick - Demure (LE)
Autumn13 6/22/2012 11:19:00 AM
I wish that I knew that this was a limited color. I can still get it on the intranet, I guess. But, this is one of those MLBB lipstick. I LOVE IT. There are days when I want my lips to be the main focus and there are days when I want the "no-makeup" look and this is sooo perfect for it. This is my weekend go to lip color and perfect for summer. This and liner on is a perfect beach day.
I would repurchase but I only use it for highlight so it will probably last me a long time. It works really well for this purpose, for me.
Love this product and won't be without it. It has evened out my skin and there is no price tag on that result. And, it also means less face makeup. Yes, pricey but you know that if the result is what you expect, then, the price is not an issue. I use very little of this. I usually just pull the wand and take what's on the wand itself. I've had this for about four months and I still have plenty of product left. Yes, I will be purchasing when it's time.
I'm on my 2nd tube and I love this product. I use it every other day and sometimes once a day. It depends on my mood. Since it has fine grains, I use a very light hand. I had no negative reaction when I've used it daily. I use it at night to make sure that every trace of my day makeup is off. I LOVE my makeup but I LOVE a clean face more at night. I love the way face feels afterwards. It just feesl soft and smooth and clean! I think you all know what you can and can't tolerate. You have to use common sense as the last poster mentioned. So, like everything else, it's try and error. Luckily, Clinique will give out samples. I say get yourself a sample and see how well your face take it. Just use a light hand.
Treatments -Garden of Wisdom - Mandelic Acid Serum
Autumn13 6/22/2012 10:37:00 AM
Love, love this product. I've been on the fence for quite a while and when I finally purchased it, I wished that I could turn back time! I had a big zit that showed up near one of my ears and I've been using three different products and while they are s..l..o..w..l..y chipping away at this HUGE thing on my face, Super Mandelic Serum shows up three days ago and this HUGE zit is history!! I have noticed - this is in three day! - that my pores are most definitely clog free. I've not seen this in a long time. Usually at the end of the day, my pores are clog and aching to be cleansed but last night, no clog pores. I have the 10% Yes Alcohol/Yes Seaweed. I did not have any tingling or negative reaction while waiting for the 20 minutes wait time. I am going to purchase the full size but will be buying the 15%. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this. Ladies, if you're on the fence, try it now - don't walk, run! I have three products that have been shelved and the cost of all three is over $80. This little size .25 oz cost a little over $10. It's pure magic.
