I love this product. I was very iffy about buying it because I wasn't sure if it would be too thick. It is like silk going on my face. You only need a tiny bit and it looks flawless all day. I have tried everything out there, Clinique, MAC, Lancome, Laura Mercier, Bobbie Brown, Smash Box, MUFE, etc. This foudation really stays on all day, it doesn't get cakey. I did try the old maximum cover and did not care for it. This double wear maximum cover is very good. I will always repurchase this product.
Powder -Lancome - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup
Blondie4445 6/9/2011 12:45:00 PM
I had been using MAC studio fix for years. I always notice in pictures or sometimes after work my face just looked blah... so I mentioned it to the MAC SA and she told me that Studio Fix has something in it that will make my face look white in photos and that might be why it look white or washed out in photos. She said I should try the mineral powder, so I did. I was not happy with the mineral powder. So I went to try Lancome's Dual Finish and I am so glad I did. This powder is awesome! I wear it over my Laura Mercier liquid foundation as a setting powder and my makeup looks great all day. I had to go stand outside at a baseball game last week when it was 98 degrees outside and I was sweating but my makeup still looked good after the game, I just touched up a little with my powder and I was good to go. I would recommend this powder to anyone who is looking for a nice powder that looks good no matter what! It is pricey but it lasts for a long time and it also has a light smell to it, it's not bad though and you cannot smell it once it is on your face.
Primer/ Corrector -Boscia - Skin Perfecting Primer
Blondie4445 2/2/2011 2:41:00 PM
I absolutely love this primer! I am always trying new products, I have tried just about everything out there from department store to drug store brands. I normally always wear high end makeup. The only product I don't switch out is my foundation. This primer keeps my makeup fresh looking ALL day! Which is what I need with Texas weather and long work hours. I put my makeup on at 6:30am and don't take it off until 9:00pm. This primer does not break me out and minimizes the look of my large pores. I will definitely buy this product again!! LOVE IT!!!
Primer/ Corrector -Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer SPF 15 with Dermaxyl
Blondie4445 3/19/2010 1:47:00 PM
I love this primer. I have combo skin and this works perfect. My makeup goes on so smooth and stays fresh all day. I highly recomend this product. I will continue to use this and by a full bottle when I finish the small one I bought. UPDATE: I still love this primer but it broke me out. I Love smashbox primers but can only wear them for about 3 days before they break me out. If you do not have sensitive skin, you might want to give this a try.
I was using Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation. I swore by the silk creme for 2 years. Recently I tried Maximum Cover! I love it! It seriously stayed on alllllllll day!!! I put it on at 6:30am and at 9:30pm it still looked great! I did touch up one time about 1:30 after lunch and that was it! This is my new HG! I love it! I need full coverage this and silk creme is the only real full coverage I have found! I will continue to re purchsse!
I love this product! It is the best mascara I have ever used! It makes my lashes so long and gives excellent volume! I will continue to repurchase!!
Love it Love it Love it!!!! this stuff makes my skin feel so soft, Holds my make up on ALL DAY!!!!! It is definitely worth every cent!

It is almost the same color is the nars Laguna, the lady at Sephora, put them each on a sponge to show me. It is so beautiful on my skin!! this is the perfect Bronzer and my new all time favorite!
Mascara -Make Up For Ever - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara
Blondie4445 5/7/2009 11:32:00 AM
ok- seriously this is the best mascara if you like the thick dramatic eye look, or especially good for special occasions. I love this stuff i like the big thick dark eyelashes so I wear this stuff everyday! I might put more on for special occasions, this goes on with just 2 or 3 coats it looks perfect! I will def re-purchase this stuff!
Primer/ Corrector -Korres - Silicone-Free Face Primer
Blondie4445 4/26/2009 5:16:00 PM
Ok- I hate to spoil the rave reviews but this primer did nothing for me. It didn't keep my make up on any better than any other primer. I do have combo skin and by 3pm my face was oily! I have tried this primer 3 different times and have finally decided to return it!
I am so upset this product has been discontinued! The reviewer below said it was not on the website anymore. I looked at the website called and asked the SA she said it had been discontinued! I loved this product and don't know if I will ever find anything better!
Mascara -Estee Lauder - MagnaScopic Maximum Volume Mascara
Blondie4445 3/2/2009 12:18:00 PM
Ok I'm not sure why this mascara has so many negative reviews. I absolutely love it. I had been using it for about a year and I switched to try some other brands, I tried Prescriptives and Lancome. I came right back to this one! I love it it adds a GREAT amount of Volume. if your eyelashes are short this mascars might not be for you! Estee Lauder does have great mascara so try another one if you have short eyelashes!!
Mascara -Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper [DISCONTINUED]
Blondie4445 2/10/2009 10:58:00 AM
I bought this Friday and had very high hopes for this mascara! I usually don't buy very many drugstore brands but I thought for $10 it could be worth a shot! I had heard so many good things about the 2000 calorie mascara! This totally let me down! The was a waste! I should have gone witht something else! My lashes normally look long and full this has made them very Short and no volume at all! I will not repurchase!!
I love this powder foundation, I actually use it lightly over Laura Mercier silk creme and I use it with the Mac Prep+Prime Primer and it looks flawless all day! Without touching up! My skin never looked this good until I started using this powder, it was like an excellent fix for my skin! I love it!
Ok all I have to say is this stuff is seriously awesome! I have been on the lookout for a good powder foundation with just the right amount of coverage, to wear over my LM Silk creme foundation! I don't know why I didn't try this earlier on! I have seriously tried almost everything! With this my face never got shiny I didn't have to touch up one time the whole night and it was on for seriously like 8 hours! this stuff beats out anyother product with its flawless look and perfect coverage natural and not cakey!!! I wear it over my LM Silk creme foundation and it looks flawless!
