I didnt expect this product to work, but it does on my NC45 skin. I use it all over my face and on lips. Wow it totally neutralized the pigmented areas of my lips and skin. I really love this product and most days i can get away waering this alone with abit of spot conecaling (I hate wearing foundation) On not so good skin days i dust a little studio fix and im good to go. It also does not make me oily yay! I have also found being a little generous with the product gives better results. The packaging is just perfect. My only con is the price...although i would re purchase
Ok, so i have the weirdest skin, its dry on the surface and oily under. So if i use a powder it would look dry and peeling, Well, i purchased this powder on a whim cos i wanted something i could use on the go. I have tons of liquid foundations but it takes a while to put on. I was very surprised with this product. The coverage is amazing! I used a buffer brush and really worked it into my skin. I few spritz of Fix Plus and i was out the door! I find that it works best with fix plus else you will look overly matte and flat. It looks even prettier if you apply Mac strobe cream above your cheekbones and the powder everywhere else. Im pleased with this product and will purchase again. I took off a lippie because yes you have to blot at least twice a day! As with any oily skinned gal.Thats a small price to pay considering that i do alot more blotting with a liquid foundation.
Liquid -Elizabeth Arden - Flawless Finish Bare Perfection Makeup SPF 8

This is such an awful product! I find the need to post this review so that people will not watse their money buying this. This foundation does not blend well. Its super thin and gives no coverage. It slides of oily skin and can make you even more oily. Water is its enemy, do not even attempt going out in the rain with this on! The price is way to high for such a poor product! The only thing thats decent is the packaging...it has a pump! Just awful, such a waste of money. This is the first foundation i had to throw out. Iusually try and make a product work or give it away. But this stuff is so nasty it wouldnt be fair to give it someone!
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

A must have! I am totally in love with this product. I cant understand the negative reviews as this is a Beauty Balm..not a foundation, its not going to give you full coverage. My skin is pretty decent, just abit uneven sking tone, large pores and undereye bags. The Garnier BB cream fixes all the above problems with the exception of underyeyes, i have to use a concealer there. Overall for the price it does its job! It blurs imperfections and looks like my skin...The apckaging is great as well. My only Con would be that it leaves a somewhat sticky residue behind and a slight white cast, also can get oily but i have oily skin and can deal with the cons, great product, will definately purchase again. Edit. This works well in Winter, too greasy for summer
HG! Love this stuff! Does wonders on my oily skin and covers acne scarring beautifully! I purchased this when i had a breakout frenzy and alot of acne scarring, when the SA put it on my skin i was like wow! That dont look like me!. Really amazing foundation, stops oils in its trackswhich might not be the best for dry skin gals (a little Fix +) will fix that. My only dislikes is that it looks like your wearing foundation, can feel heavy and doesnt have a pump! But i still re purchase it!
Tinted Moisturizer -MAC - Studio Moisture Tint SPF15

Ok so i dont use Mac foundations because i can never get the correct colour. So i opted for this since my skin was looking pretty decent. Wow! I love it! really good stuff. Its moisturising and has decent coverage to even out your skin colour the sahe is perfect for me and it looks like my skin! I had to take off a lippie because it does nothing for my oily skin, i often have to blot...well its a moisturizer..i dint expect it to stop oil. Still hoping i can find one with this coverage but oil absorbing properties
I love this foundation! It is amaze! Covers beautifully, matched my skintone perfectly and makes you look radiant.It feels super light and luxurious Unfortunately i havent found a brush to apply it with, it does have blending issues so i use my fingers hich seems to work. I had to take off a lippie because it did not last 9hrs on my oily skin, if you are normal.combo skin it would be perfect....Excellent product will definetly purchase again.
What a waste of money! It does not do anything for dark circles or for hydration and puffiness. Argh! Im so angry cos it costs so much! The only thing i like about this proiduct is the packaging! Dont waste your money, this product is useless!
Wow! What an amazing product! I love love love this! I have very sparse eyebrows and the shape is always off,so thank Gos for this,i can shape it and fill it and it stays put all day! I use to use a pencil and brow gel in the past but why struglle with a brush when this is so simple to use. I use it in the shade Brunette and i really dont have to press hard for the colur to appear, i guess thats the reason mine never breaks hehe.It would be cool if a drugstore brand came out with a dupe.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Select Sheer Pressed Powder
RoxyOhSoFoxy 11/10/2011 7:51:00 AM
Ok so i have weird skin, its dry on the surface but oily underneath.. Lately my skin has been looking alot better so i got this powder from MAC and started using just concealr where necessary and setting with powder. This powder did such a good job of evening out my skin tone without looking cakey or dry. Now i just use a moisturizer and Sheer Select! Amazingly natural look, i love it! I had to take out 1 lippie cos i feel that this product does not look good when re applied.
I was not prepared to fork out $20 for a sponge, so i researched the product, read all the reviews, watched all the tutorials. Then i saw Mario Dedivanovic using it on Kim K and i was sold! What a brilliant investment! This is now my HG. I love love love the flawless finish it provides. With my acne scarring i tend to load on the concealer...but with this little gem i can use a little product and blend away an voila i look flawless. Not one of my brushes can blend out my It Cosmetics bye bye under eye concealer....but this little egg can! I will def repurchase!
Ok, so i have been on a serious mission for a good non creasing concealer that really hides the dark circles.(Iron defficiant) and i was surprised that this worked! i didnt expect it to work because when i hear th word "creamy" i think "cakey" well i was wrong, i use a corrector and the concealer on top and lightly set with powder. Its amazing!! I think the key to making this concealer work is the application. You really need a light hand and blend blend blend! Since discovering Mac pro longwear, what a winner! and mac mineral concealer (no creasing) i no longer purchase the bb concealer :-)
