Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
Brittany123 10/16/2011 7:27:00 PM
First of all, it does NOT sting my eyes. It does NOT break out the eye area. It soothes and moisturizes. Not too thick, not too liquidy. Just the right texture to apply under and all around the eyes. Will definitely repurchase it again!
I have combination/dry/acne prone skin. I have tried other BB creams from different brands such as Hanskin, Dr. Jart, Tonymoly, Estee Lauder, and Lioele, but THIS Skin79 Super+ Pink Label BB cream is so far the BEST BB cream I've ever tried. The consistency is neither too thick nor too watery. It can be blended out easily and settles into your skin without feeling greasy. I should mention, it is oil-free, so I never broke out from this product. The color comes out grey-ish at first, but turns into your skintone pretty quick after application. I would totally repurchase this product again!
I have combination/dry/acne prone skin. I have been using this BB cream almost everyday for a little more than 3 weeks now. I think this BB cream provides a medium to full coverage (if you build up the product), which I really like about. The product sinks into my skin pretty well and changes its slightly light color to match my skintone in about 5 minutes after application. However, the downside is that it clogs my pores especially around the nose area, forhead, and the chin! I've used scrubs when taking off the BB cream, but it never really works...:'( I also saw little pumps on my cheek area, which few of them developed into whiteheads. I'm kind of in denial that this product has made me break out, so have been giving it a try after a try... But I should probably stop using it for a while and see if my skin goes back to normal. Other than that, great product.
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)
Brittany123 7/19/2011 5:44:00 PM
I'm in love with this product! It is very creamy and does not make my skin look cakey at all. It brightens up my under eye areas, brow bones, cheeck bones, sides of my nose, etc. Its effect is completely phenomenal as it leaves my skin glowy and more vibrant after each application. It's easy to use as a couple clicks dispose the product through the brush. My skin is medium tone and I have the second lightest shade (out of three color shades I think) and it's been working just great whether during winter or summer! I'd be definitely repurchasing again! It's worth the price.
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum
Brittany123 7/19/2011 5:39:00 PM
Love the scent and how it smoothes down my long, thin, and tangled hair! It's not thick and does not leave any residue like some products do. After a whole day being outside in summer, my hair still smells great from the serum (it smells somewhere between flowery scent and vanilla.. if that makes sense). I've been trying out other leave-in products, but will go back to this!
Conditioner -Aussie - Hair Insurance Leave In Conditioner
Brittany123 7/19/2011 5:36:00 PM
I love the Aussie products with the unique scent (to me, they all have this coconutty, vanilla scent), I've used their shampoos and conditioners before and they worked great considering the less expensive prices. Maybe I was expecting too much from the leave-in conditioner, but am kind of disappointed because it doesn't really leave my hair smooth nor detangle them well. Maybe it's because I have long, VERY thin hair that is easy to be tangled. Anyhow, I'm not sure why but when the weather started to get hotter and humid in summer, the product left a really weird, dusty smell on my hair that had made me just stop using it.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free
Brittany123 7/19/2011 5:31:00 PM
I bought the tinted moisturizer in the lightest color early in Spring. My face was still quite pale from the winter months, but the color still did not match. It looked almost two shades darker than my skin. So I waited till summer and have tried again, but it was still kinda dark.. I don't know why the lightest color is dark on my medium skintone. I actually bought a kit (Oil-free TM, Oil-free Primer, concealers/power, brushes, and a puff), but am only using the primer, concealers, and the puff once in a while. Because of the color dismatch, I probably won't be repurchasing it.
Primer/ Corrector -Laura Mercier - Foundation Primer Oil -Free
Brittany123 7/19/2011 5:25:00 PM
Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer does allow you to set a good preparation for foundation. I like it because it's not too thick neither too watery. It is oil-free, so does not clog my pores and also scented-free. I said I wouldn't repurchase this product ONLY BECAUSE I would like to try other primers. Overall, it's a good primer, just a little bit pricey.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!! Both Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer look AMAZING on my skin! The blush is neither too over-the-top nor invisible. It gives me a just right amount of cute blush effect and achieve a more vibrant look. The bronzer is ALSO AMAZING in that it definitely sculpts my over all look and gives me a very nice bronzed look. They are very nice match and awesome even if used alone! Will be definitely repurchasing them!
Cleansers -Biore - Steam Activated Cleanser with SteamActiv Beads
Brittany123 2/15/2011 12:42:00 PM
I have combination-dry-sensitive-acne prone skin. When I used the cleanser not in shower, I didn't feel like it cleansed my face thoroughly at all. It felt slippery (I like squeaky feeling after cleansing). So, I gave it another try in shower and it turned out giving me a kind of squeaky feeling which I like...BUT, it also dried out my skin! I had to put extra moisturizer on those dry patches which didn't really work anyway. Won't be repurchasing this product again!
I LOVE this mascara!!! I have one that's waterproof, which is a plus! I'm not so good at applying a mascara because it seems like I don't know how to reapply it and if I do, my lashes get all clumped together. This Bad Gal Lash waterproof mascara basically takes care of my problem! It goes on so smooth and nice. It makes my lashes look so naturally curled and precise! Best thing, it wouldn't get smudged away even if I cry!!! I'd def repurchase it again. In fact, I have been using this since high school!
Liquid -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20
Brittany123 1/31/2011 10:09:00 PM
I have combination-dry-sensitive skin. My color for this FD is Buff 30, which is slightly off my real skin tone but wearable. The coverage is light-medium and gives me a slight glow (not oily, more like a natural glow) IF I put enough moisturizer prior to applying it. I tried wearing this FD the entire day and found that my skin became a little oily later that day. I'm not a big fan of the packaging because it's hard to control the amount of liquid coming out with the huge opening. I rarely use a foundation, probably like 2-3 times a month, so don't really have any strong opinions about this FD. But if I used a foundation daily, I would not use this product.
The smell was really chemical. Too harsh on my skin even though it's just a peel-off mask. Returned it.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pale Pink
Brittany123 10/25/2010 12:43:00 AM
Great product! It is neither drying nor sticky on my cheeks. It gives me a natural flush and adds more liveliness to my face. I don't apply it on my lips though because it can be quite drying. But I like this product and want to try Cabo Coral next time!
I have been using this product for about a month now. What I like about this serum is how it smells. It kind of smells like herbs and tee tree, which is actually one of the ingredients in the product I think. But after applying the product, I can feel my skin sticky at the same time drying, too. Anyways, I did not really notice any improvements on my skin and don't think it prevents me from getting acne. Mine is the new packaging, so I think it's okay (it comes in a tube). But overall, I don't think I would repurchase this product because it didn't really do anything for my skin.
