BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

I actually have this in Medium/Deep and I am about NC35 because its the summer, my natural skin level is about NC30. This looks really dark but I like how it blends in and gives me a little more of a tan. It really looks natural, doesnt break me out (I am very acne-prone). Basically I use it on my days off of work or when Im not going out and am just looking for a bit of coverage with a tint of bronze.. Its the summertime and it doesnt really last too long, I would say about 3/4 hours before I start to see some fading..but its okay because it was pretty cheap. I also use it as a base sometimes if I am going out at night or if I want a little more coverage. I would probably purchase again! Forgot to add, it doesnt really have the normal texture of a BB cream...to me its more like a TM.
I use hairspray for hold and body. I can't have a hairspray that weighs hair down. I didn't think this was crunchy at oil. Kind of had a heavy waxy feel..I will stick to my big sexy hairspray. Which gives me excellent hold without weighing it down. And this was VERY expensive for a drugstore brand..

This really does work and makes my irritated bloodshot eyes look so white. I picked this up bc I remeber michelle phan using it on YT..so I wanted to try it....plus I had only had 6 hrs of sleep in two nights from partying pretty hard lol...and I had to go into work...didn't want to look like I had just smoked 5 blunts...I looked like a wreck but wow this really works...only downside...it kinda burns when you put it in...and makes you blink rapidly...your eyes look more red at first but the burning and redness goes away after a min...worth it. Hah.
Website says: A bronzing powder that features a mélange infusion of colors baked on Italian terracota tiles. Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous, enhancing the purity of the skin. This hi-tech, streak free bronzer, gives you a perfect radiant look. The color I got was Soleil, which is the medium shade. The lighter one is Glow and the darkest is Golden...There are 3 shades only. I am NC25 and Soleil works well with my skin. I was looking for a shimmery bronzer to brighten my skin bc the winter is making it look pretty pasty and flat..My matte bronzers are better for the summer/different looks. This is really long lasting on my combo skin and leaves a very nice finish! Reminds me of the MAC MSF's. I really love it. I def will purchase again. Comes with a little brush but I use my own..
I was trying to find a cheap alternative for MUFE's f&b. This doesn't work well for my combo, acne-prone skin. MUFE face & body didnt break me out at all and MAC's did. :( Also this left me more shiny than MUFE's. This finish is dewier than MUFE's, which I dont really like either. Will not purchase again.
I really like these to add a little drama to your lashes. They are not very dense, so they look more natural. I usually use Ardell's demi whispies, which are more dramatic but I would purchase these again if I didnt want to go as dramatic.
Wow I LOOOOVE this mascara. One of the best I have tried in recent years. It makes my short sparse asian lashes look so long and lush. I love the brush, it lets you get right at the root of your lashes. It does make my eyelashes look like I have falsies on. I am very suprised by the low ratings for this. I was using collossal but I like this one WAY better. :)
MY FAVORITE RED POLISH!! It's SO gorgeous. Its a deep shiny red. Reminds me of a shiny ruby color. I fell in love with this! LOL.
ORIGINAL REVIEW IN 2008: This is the most disgusting foundation I have ever tried. It feels so heavy, looks like a mask, and there are hardly any good color matches. I tried a few colors and they are all orange. I couldn't even wear it for a full day, I had to wash it off it felt heavy and greasy but was actually kind of drying (the dry part I expect in a long last foundation but it felt like my face was cracking apart as I was talking and I have normal/combo skin) ew!! I had to return this. Never again. I have much better luck with lancome teint idol ultra, not a hg but def 200 times better! UPDATE: Lol I feel stupid writing a positive review now because of what I had originally said. I think it was that the SA kept matching me with SUPER dark colors, it would look gross on me. I found a perfect match "Desert Beige" and I am NC20/NC25. I now wear a foundation primer (BE primetime) and use a damp sponge. Works great and stays on all day like this.

I got this because recommendations from the hair board. I was pretty disapointed. First off it only has a "HI MED LO" setting, which I dont like. I prefer the temperature dial. My hair is wavy and thick. I had to make many passes to make it straight and even then it wasnt how i wanted it to look. It doesn't really get that hot at all. I used it on a friend with really coarse and curly hair (puerto rican decent). I blew her hair dry, then used this over. Didn't work good. Usually when I use the CHI on her hair, it doesn't frizz up afterwards but when I used this, it did. SUCKS for most hair types id say lol.
This is a pretty good eyeshadow. I cant really pack it on bc it looks too frosty for my taste. So I keep it sheer. Its a golden pink color..I usually use it on the lid with soba in the crease and bobbi brown gel liner in bronze shimmer for a pretty daytime look.
Didn't like the want first off. Brush is rough and scratched my eyes. I have used rubber bristle brushes too before but this one is uncomfortable. Mascara is also clumpy and it didn't curl my lashes. I used a lash curler (shiseido) and applied afterwards, still fell flat. Although, I do have very straight lashes....

This is a pretty color but not quite the pink I was initally looking for. I will probably finish this up though. It's a light to medium rosy pink with golden undertones. For some reason when I saw it in pictures and on YT I thought it was going to be more of a cool toned and lighter baby pink, kinda like Mac Angel or Creme cup (I was looking for a dupe actually:) It doesn't look bad on me-just very natural and nothing extraordinary. It's consistancy is creamy like all of the other CS lipsticks I have tried. I'm Nc 25 for reference.
This mascara lengthens well but it is clumpy. It also burns my eyes if it touches my inner waterline and I haven't ever had that happen to me before in a mascara. It's def not the worst mascara i've ever tried but I am not buying again.
Thank YOU acne.org for this stuff. Saved my face. I started having horrible breakouts on my face after I had my second baby.. especially around my chin. There would be horrible huge red clusters of pimples. I never had bad skin before. I didn't know what to do. I tried ProActiv, Mama lotion, Neutrogena etc.. I just couldn't get rid of my acne. This helps SO much. It got rid of 95 percent of my acne. I feel a lot more confident. It doesn't overdry your skin like ProActiv either. I only use this once a day right now... THAANNNKKK YOUUUU.
