Not sure if I like this color /: On me, it looks very bright and almost neon pink.. still pretty but it can look harsh in certain lighting. Might return it back if I decide it is not flattering on me. However, I do love the formula the orly nail polishes! They are so fabulous. One of the few polishes that don't take forever to dry or smear easily after applying. I think I like it more than OPI & OPI was my favorite brand. I didn't find a problem with it streaking. I went to cosmetology school & one of the things that they taught us in nail classes was to "roll the ball" meaning, leave a little extra polish on the tip of the brush so it applies more smoothly & evenly. You sorta have to get the right touch & know how to work with it. Kinda like when working with the acrylic & monomer. I found that I had to do that a lot more with this product, but when I apply the second coat no problems at all & the second coat will cover any spots that might be showing.
My Favorite lipstick! I use this everyday it looks good on my pale yellow toned skin. Oh & it smells good too! definitely a plus. Cremesheen > Frost imo.
This nail polish it actually really pretty. I like the way it looks over my polishes, but I am looking for something more unique. I've had this for over a year now & starting to get bored with it. Another thing that I don't like about it is how it starts to look dull after just a few days. idk if that is just me or what. And also it is getting clumpy.. I guess becuase I use it so much. It makes to hard to apply nicely. Will be looking for something else.
This eyeshadow is actually really nice! It looks glittery pink in the pan, but on my skin its a nice light gold/pink color. It is sooo stunning! I use my mac 239 flat shader brush and pack in on to my lid as an all over lid color, after I prime my eyes with urban decay eden of course, and then I use soba to darken my crease, coquette and concrete in the outer V, and omega to blend any harsh lines. Then for some flare, with my finger I tap on some of urban decay's heavy metal eyeliner in Distortion and Midnight cowboy on mostly the inner corner of the upper lid. (A nice combo) The Lustre in gleam compliments the glitter, and vice versa, but gleam would still look beautiful on its own with other looks as well. Exactly what I was looking for! I love gold colors so this is perfect :]
I love this perfume! My boyfriend and parents commented on how good this smells. The only problem is it doesn't last very long, but i am ok with that becuase I don't like strong perfumes anyways. I was debating between this and Marc Jacobs Daisy, but I just love the way this smells. I liked the smell of Daisy too, but I guess I'll buy that later if I decide I need it.. but with the Gucci, I think I am going to start carrying it with me when I go out becuase the scent only lasts for a few hours. Other than that, I love it!
I have been using this for 2 years now and I haven't noticed it causing me any breakouts. I like how it moisturizes my skin, i just use a little bit and apply it with cotton ball and it goes on smoothly. I only use this under my make-up and I guess its alright. I am looking for something better that will help my make-up last longer, but I'm afraid to use a primer with silicones becuase my skin is sensitive to heavy products... I don't moisturize my skin everyday, but I use this if my skin randomly gets dry around my nose or the sides of my face and it works well. Remember people.. most can't solve their acne problem just by using products so don't expect a miracle. Although skincare is an important step one of the biggest factors are diet and lifestyle. There is proof that wheat products, sugar, hydrogenated vegetable oils, etc. are linked to acne. In fact, changing my diet is what truly cleared my skin and I had it bad. It was all internal. Some might not breakout from certain foods becuase they are just not prone to getting acne (luckyy ducks). Anyways, I used to have extremely disgusting oily skin that got oily after 1 hour of washing my face. This is where diet played a part, once I cut out all wheat, sugar, dairy, hydrogenated oils, became gluten free, replaced it with real food and payed attention to my lifestyle, my skin type became normal. Scientific evidence shows that the culprit foods cause an overproduction of oil by raising insulin levels. More oil + dead skin cells + toxins + unbalanced hormones = acne. (countless articles online that talk about this look it up if interested) The diet is called paleo diet/lifestyle. My skin now is pretty clear, I still get a couple tiny ones here and there and skin is normal/slightly oily in the T - zone. I don't have to even blot my face or reapply powder as my make-up stays matte all day. This is a really big accomplishment for me and if I would've known this 7 years ago it would of saved me all the embarrassment and money wasted on products that didn't work. I couldn't believe how much I improved and how it completely cut most of my oil production. Truly wonderful! I also use the Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Gel Cleanser from Burts Bees twice a day. I don't like all their products but I love these 2 from the acne line.
I use this to fill in my brows and its perfection! I like how its matte and it can also be used in any make-up looks like in the outer V. It also lasts a long time. I've had my for over a year and used it everyday its only now starting to run out so it'll probably repurchase in a couple months. I cannot live without with this shadow!
I love this eyeshadow! I use it everyday it is so beautiful. Can be used as a all over lid color. Definitely the best matte neutral brown shadow that I ever used.
I love This! It is so gentle yet it cleanses really well. I have oily skin and this takes off all the oil without drying out my skin. Usually I would like something a little more drying but this is perfect. Also keep in mind that you have to look into your diet and lifestyle to get to the root cause of breakouts. (For instance, going paleo improved my skin dramatically) acne is usually an internal thing for most people even if its genetic. But anyways, love this face wash [:
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Advantage 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser

This didn't do anything for my breakouts. It just felt like a regular cream cleanser :P I perfer neutrogena products, but i decided to give this a try as I'm always looking for different scrubs/cleansers. I read the back and realized it has mineral oil... which is known to cause acne. Was not too happy.
Toners -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner
Makeupluffer4ever 5/26/2012 4:02:00 AM
I love this toner! This has helped clear up my skin dramatically. I can really see a difference. I also love how its so strong as most toners don't seem to be strong enough for me. However, i would recommend being careful with this product. It can be harsh if you hold this in one spot too long (with a cotton ball) it could burn your skin. I also noticed that it dried up the skin on my finger tips. (I use this morning and night) In other words, I would recommend this to anyone, but if you have dry skin be careful.
I don't like this toner. It actually made my acne worse. I used more than half of the bottle for over a month just to see if it would work for me. It leaves a nice cool feeling afterwards.. but it isn't strong enough for my skin. It didn't even control oil like it said it would. This would be good for someone with normal to oily skin who barely got any breakouts.
I've been reading the reviews for this product and i am rather shocked becuase this is my favorite foundation! I would like to point out that NC has a yellowish tones which i do not like, and NW has lighter looking tones that it doesn't leave that ugly orange color behind. If you are using NC colors and think its too orange you need to switch to NW. I am a NW 20 and it matches my skin perfectly. Its all about finding the right shade with SFF. I have very oily skin and i find that this foundation has good oil control and it stays on all day when I set it with a powder. I like it becuase it has build able coverage and I don't need to use concealer. Yes, it has a very thick consistently, but its good for covering acne scars. If you have typically good skin then I would suggest looking elsewhere. This foundation has been very good to me I am on my 4th bottle and i really like the packaging i found that i don't even need a pump becuase i use my fingers or the back of hand (with a brush ) to apply it on my face. Overall, it does not make me break out considering I use to have very bad acne. I use SFF with a moisturizer underneath and it works very well. I don't understand why others break out from it, i suppose it varies depending on the person. Perhaps washing it off completely at night will help. I really love this product and will be purchasing it again soon! this foundation perfects my skin leaving it looking smooth
