Foundations -Wet 'n' Wild - Coverall Cream Foundation
PrincessMikki 4/29/2013 10:59:00 PM
Wow, this may or may not be my favorite foundation. I use a little (that's all you need!!!) and apply it with my fingers, and I stay matte ALL day! It doesn't cover everything, but a lot. After applying it, I run a sponge over my face to absorb excess oils, then apply my MUFE Duo Matte Powder. I really enjoy and recommend this foundation! P.S. Buy a shade lighter than necessary- it sets a shade darker! :)
This is so, so , so amazing! Everytime I use this, my hands transform from cracked, dry, and peeling to soft and moisturized. It also smells like Dior Miss Dior Cherie perfume. I can not express my love for this. I honestly want to give everyone in the world a bottle of this.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Japanese Cherry Blossom body splash

Yuck, smells like grandmas and sunscreen.
I have had this for about 2 years. I absolutely love this quad. I am using it now in the winter, and it looks amazing. All of the colors are nicely pigmented (the cranberry could be better), and stay in place without creasing or fading. I just wish that they would be a little smoother. I would recommend! :) OH! The lid fell off on me. lol
I personally HATE original carmex lipbalms. I find them to have a sickly cherry..odor and a very thick texture. This, however is quite pleasant. It has a lotion like texture and a sugary orange (think ELF Essentials products) scent/taste. It absorbs into my lips quite fast, but as it absorbs, my lips get reaalllyy dry and I constantly have to apply more. It does have a matte finish. I think that this would be really nice for men who don't like glossy lip balms, but not really for me :(. UPDATE: The more you put on, the white color is more visible in the cracks and crevices of your lips :/
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

First off, I hate the Orginial TM Fndtn. I also couldn't find a good color, so I went with the lighter one. I really like the packaging. Its a clear bottle with a silver pump. Im not a stickler for germs, but its always nice to have a pump. I usually use about 2 pumps of this. This is a very nice, naturally luminous foundation. I have normal skin with a slightly oily nose, so I know when my foundation is greasy. While this is very thin, it never really settles into my skin. When it does, its very oily. The sad part is that I really like the way it makes my skin look. I recommend this for those with drier skin who prefer a healthy glow from within look. If you have oily skin and REALLY want to try this, try applying it with a sponge such as the BB or SK Beauty Sponge. I imagine that a cosmetic sponge will give you the same affect. Good luck!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Blush 831E Pearlescent Pink
PrincessMikki 11/27/2012 9:56:00 PM
Just a small disclaimer: I have NARS Ogasm, and it is NOTHING like Pearlescent Pink. Ogasm is brighter, has finer shimmer, and is less pigmented. I received this as a gift, and was never fond of it. I think that it is fairly pigmented, but it doesn't appeal to me. It lasts around 2 hours, as any other blush does (on me at least) . I have seen others wear it, and I don't find it flattering on them either. Wouldn't recommend.
I lovelovelove this! I found this at the dollar tree, so instead of paying $3 for it, i paid $1. If i wouldnt have gotten such a great deal, i wouldve never, ever bought this. I have mine in light, and I am a medium-tan complexion with brunette hair. The gel (i use this more often than the powder) is darker than the powder. Its not obnoxiusly hard and it doesnt melt off my face. The powder is very nice, and i sometimes use it to set the gel. I love this product and WILL repurchase it!
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder
PrincessMikki 11/6/2012 10:30:00 PM
I have normal to combination skin for reference. I am also a MAC NC30 I love this powder so much. I normally will apply my liquid foundation, and use a big brush (Sigma F30) to set it. This gives such an airbrushed, matte (non-cakey) look. I also keep it in my purse to touch up. I don't even need blotting papers. This isn't a powder foundation, so don't expect this to add coverage. This is very similar to MACs MSFN. You really won't regret buying this. I reccomend it to everyone.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint
PrincessMikki 11/5/2012 9:46:00 PM
I would say that this is the most moisturizing out of all of the EOS lip balms, but still not good enough. These are very waxy and sit on your lips. I have a more detailed review on them somewhere else, but I seriously don't recommend these.
I purchased this concealer from Target for 1$. This concealer smells like oranges..odd. I noticed more and more that this concealer made me oily and barely concealed anything. More than anything, it made my undereyes grey. Yuck. I threw it out and have never regretted it.
Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720
PrincessMikki 11/5/2012 8:37:00 PM
This is a really inexpensive, matte bronzer. Sadly, I am the exact same color as it. Lol. I do use it during the winter to warm up my skin tone, and it does a lovely job. No, it doesn't last all day, but it does a nice job. I wouldn't repurchase, because of the color issue. If you're lighter than a NC30 in MAC, you may like it :)
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I have combination skin and I hate this foundation. It's unbelievably greasy. It never absorbs into my skin, either. I don't recommend this, at all.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
PrincessMikki 11/5/2012 9:43:00 AM
This is.. A greasy tinted mouisterizer. It offers barely any coverage and does nothing to control oil. I'd much prefer my Too Faced BB Cream.
This eyeshadow is like Sins tanned, hotter sister. Toasted is less pink and more brown toned, but not quite. Think of it as if Sin and Hustle had a baby. I live to use this in my crease. The texture is extremely smooth and has just about no glitter. I don't have oily lids, so this doesn't crease on me, but it doesn't stay all day either. I will repurchase, but I don't think I have too. I have it in the Showpony palette, Naked palette, and on its own. ;)
