Palettes -Too Faced - The Secret to No Makeup Makeup
Elle02 4/18/2013 5:51:00 PM
I love this. It has cured me of foundation dependence for everyday pretty. I use my Boots Instant Radiance BB (just a brightener really, see my review), then apply this according to the directions on the "cue cards" . Then I set it with DEWY FINISH NYX makeup fixative spray (another GREAT product). I use my own Brightener, so you may have to edit the look a tad too. I have not used foundation since I bought this!! It is also a HUGE timesaver. Overall my skin and mood are much brighter with this awesome little pallette. I will be buying a back up immediately. It makes summer beauty a snap, and you will feel really pretty, but super natural.
BB Cream -Boots - No 7 Instant Radiance Beauty Balm

I would give this a 10. It is really worth buying. It makes you glow. I put it on, add minimal makeup, then spray with the new NYX dewy finish make up setting spray (also a 10!) . the whole look lasts till bedtime. These two items have cut down on my products needed and application time and reapplication time by half.
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
Elle02 1/25/2013 12:42:00 PM
Okay, I have tried them all. Drugstore, .Online, all the brands at Sephora , all the Nordstrom brands. I have paid $2 to 200.00 for foundation, which is shameful. I am hard to match. I am the girl at the MAC counter who tries to get the NW's but they are convinved I am NC until they try 5 or so colors, then finally NW25, and they say, oh you look soo good. So I must have weird coloring, becasue that happens at all counters at first. My current fav, like another reviewer, is Rimmell Lasting Finish, which is a beautiful foundation for me. I wear the REVLON photo ready translucent over it. I wear 201 Classic Beige. and people always tell me how pretty I look when I am wearing it, which I am not . It sort of softens my lines and features. It makes me look prettier than I am, actually, which is what foundation should do : ). But because I am a foundation junkie, I HAD to try the Outlast as soon as it came out. I bought several colors. The best match to my Rimmel is the creamy beige. Very good for me. Lasts all day, great coverage. I found it to be more matte than expected, which always makes my nose look LARGE. so I put some highlighting powder down and across the bridge, and it fixed that. I use the ELF hi def powder over it, which works better than the MUFE hi def, and it was as good at 10 pm as it was at 9 am. These are fantastic, and they will be my go to's until the next big thing :) I cant believe 2 drugstore foundations do what I had been searching the hi ends for , for 20 years. Hope you have the same luck!!
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
Elle02 1/16/2013 12:59:00 PM
Surprisingly fantastic. lasts all day, really pretty finish and soft focus look. I love this.
Love this. Did not like regular colorstay and have not used liquids or creams for 5 years--just been obsessed with powders. Then I read reviews and tried this. .Agree with other reviewers that may need slightly darker color than you think, BUT finding that out means that I looked so good all day today, because I went with Natural Beige. I went to a water park, and by the end of the day, I looked as good as the start. I wore sunscreen underneath, and it still went on great (maybe even better) and lasted until now, which is 11 pm. I have ALWAYS WANTED a makeup to perform like this one does. Even if you are a die hard mineral or powder foundation girl, give this a try. also, If it feels tacky, use a barely there dust of your fav powder, before blush. You will see what I mean. I love this. I have never been prettier or more comfortable in my skin. PLEASE REVLON keep this product!!! It is the PERFECT foundation for me- incredibly long lasting, luminous skin, natural beauty but covers, and yummy feel. My first HG of 100 foundations. I fell like I bought beauty.
I really like this powder. I apply like a powder foundation, with a sponge, over serum and concealer. Sometimes I spot conceal on top. It lasts all day, no touchups. It is natural looking on me, and I do think it makes me look younger. Love the color and NO oxidation. The illuminating one had little sparkles you could see in the sun (but might be glowy looking at night) , but this one does not. Just looks like healthy skin to me. I have had two people ask me about my skin products since I started using it, which is fun. My other fav is Pur Minerals--fuller coverage but awesome. These two products have me ignoring other foundations--which is HUGE for someone who has scoured the boards and bought every one for 10 years. I really recommend trying it.
This is for the newer 4 in 1 powder foundation from Pur. I had tried the original, and did not like. This, I LOOOOOVE! Really pretty, very natural looking (I apply lightly with sponge, over concealer) gorgeous color match and usually I am DIFFICULT!) I have blond hair, mid-fair skin , and green eyes, and the Blush Medium is perfect. Plus, my skin loves it, and is looking better each day without makeup. Softens flaws and wrinkles for me. My husband said I look 10 years younger on the first day I tried. Many odd, random compliments, and I know it is this foundation. Lasts all day for me, and I look much better with it. . I am no longer looking for foundations now, and I was on the hunt for YEARS!!! in high and low end, in every form and color. SO much money wasted, looking to look like this makes me look. Try it, I hope it works as well for you
This is beautiful. BEAUTIFUL!! Buildable, healthy looking and natural, but porcelain. AHH, it is gorgeous! It lasts all day for me. I add my Revlon translucent photo ready to top after all makeup on, and all lasts. Please keep making this, cause I look younger, glowy and HAPPY!!!
I wear this over Chanel Primer. Without the primer, it is a little light at first, then fabulous in 30 minutes. With the primer, it is immediately fabulous. It looks SO GOOD, my husband has made several comments about how rested and great I look. Perfect Nude is the perfect color for my light-med skin, and it is the first foundation of any type or brand that I do not touch up throughout the day. At night, I add a touch of Armani loose powder. I even use the new Fusion cream blush OVER this, and it does not pull or pool over the powder. This is a new look for me, very smooth and natural, and I look a lot better. It feels great too--like nothing, but better, and with the primer, I have no shine all day.I will be stocking up. Please never be discontinued!!!!
Powder -Physicians Formula - Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder Foundation
Elle02 5/24/2010 2:29:00 PM
I was surprised to need the creamy beige, as I am actually on the lighter side, but it had the exact right undertone--neutral, and was the right depth of shade as well. I put on concealer, this, then the Revlon translucent photogenic powder. It stays all day, and in Florida heat, that is amazing. Along with 50 spf, I am sold, expecially considering it looks fantastic and glowy, with med. coverage. I love it.
Treatments -Avon - ANEW CLINICAL Derma-Full X3 Facial Filling Serum
Elle02 12/4/2009 2:37:00 PM
I love this. I have recently bought 4 from ebay, because I have to have a stock. I use this on the bottom half of my face only, to give a little plump to the hollows of my 40 something face. It has definately worked for me. I look healthier, and for me,it did as claimed--filled out my face a bit, which I needed. I really hope it works for others too.
Powder -Elizabeth Arden - Pure Finish Mineral Makeup
Elle02 12/3/2009 9:05:00 PM
Best Mineral Powder, best foundation of any kind, on the market. I look so much better with this powder. I actually use the puff it came with , not a brush. It is so fast and fool proof. My husband, 2 friends, mom and even my brother (!) commented on my skin and rested, glowy, great, etc. that I look. HA! I look the same, it is this powder. It really does make me look better, and my skin looks like someone elses. I was SO LUCKY to try this. I have tried everything out there, and was constantly disappointed. The number 4 is perfect, so neutral that I can even wear lipsticks that looked awful on me before because they clashed with my tone. This is my HG, which I have never had before. I will sob it it is ever discontinued. I really will. You should try it if you want a soft focus, very long lasting, super natural and very gorgeous look.
Conditioner -John Frieda - Go Blonder Lightening Conditioner

Great conditioner and does give a little lift to color. Fun, really super product for the price, especially when you can stretch out highlight trips.
Shampoo -John Frieda - Sheer Blonde Color Renew Tone-Restoring Shampoo
Elle02 5/2/2009 6:06:00 PM
If you have colored blond hair, you want this. IT is better than shimmer lights by far. It has stopped my years long battle with the brass. The lightening one is great also. GET THESE if you fight brass and just want to enjoy your blond instead ! !
Foundations -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Mineral Foundation
Elle02 7/18/2008 9:20:00 PM
I cannot believe this foundation. This is the most superior mineral product (and very best foundation, hands down) I have used. I LOVE IT! 1. My own skin looks better now after one month of wear. 2. The shade 100 is PERFECT for me and does not change from its light /light med. neutral. 3. It LASTS ALL DAY in florida, even outside and at water parks 4. My moisturiser does not make it darken 5. My oily skin is MUCH better--now I would say it is normal. 6. It does not accentuate wrinkles or pores...at all. I look quite a bit younger to be honest. 7. My husband has been giving me loads of compliments on my skin and that I look great every day. I really see a difference too. It is the makeup. 8. It is incredibly natural looking, natural finish, and covers. I put my Dior Forever powder or my Make up forever hi def powder over it, and do not have to touch up. This is a fantastic powder and product. You really should try it. HOWEVER, I took the puff and sifter off. I use the powder itself with a Kabuki only. IT is worth it, and I paid only 6.99, instead of my usual $60 on other products. I am going to stock up. Believe me, I am really critical. I have tried all of them, and I really recommend this. I hope it works as well for everyone!
