Where do I even begin with this foundation. I have been using it now for a little over a year. I repurchased it twice already. Not because I ran out well sort of i seem to always leave it open an accidents happen that way. Yet I dont know what happen that the foundation became oxidated. Might have to do with leaving it open a few times. But other than that the color is perfect. I am extremely pale which makes it somewhat hard to find foundations true to my color in the drugstores. Besides the l'oreal true match. When i first began using Colorstay i had far from perfect skin. I did have major breakouts which i can blame the foundation for because I have had problematic skin since middle school. This foundation did wonderfully covering up my breakouts and redness I was often complimented on how my skin had improved. I might have to sayy this was the only foundation that ever actually did look natural on me and didnt make me feel like i was wearing a mask. Which is a big plus in my book. It is buildable to the consistancy that ou need to cover the imperfections. It does last 16 hours i just reshen it up with some powder and I am good to go. I have basically have had no major breakouts now so i use less now. Yet i will keep buying this foundation as longest they dont change the formula. My hg formula. The smell is kind of paint like yet it doesnt bother me much because once it does on the skin its gone it doesnt linger around.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I truly did want to love it. But we have a love hate relationship. My skin is less than perfect and on occasions i felt like this broke me out because i wasn't wearing anything else on my way nor was i trying any new products. First I did notice that you have to make sure you dont have any dry patches on your face. I would have to freshen up my make up sooner that I have ever had to with any makeup. I wont be buying this anymore i tried it but i wasn't pleased. This might be better for those who have less oily skin or don't have acne prone skin.
Blush -Cover Girl - Cheekers Blush in Pretty Peach
ScarletUnknown 5/7/2011 11:18:00 PM
This used to be my go to blush. I used it alot in high school because it gave me just a very clean flush without looking like i was wearing any make up. I only use it sometimes now. It will always have place in my make up collection.
This is a good mascara yet I am more indecisive if i would ever try it again. Half way throughout the day I end up with raccoon eyes. Yet I need to do an investigation and hopefully its not the mascara but the eyeliner im using. This is the only mascara up to know that keeps my eyelashes in shape throughout most of my day which is a blessing.
I have actually lost count of how many tubes of this wonderful mask I have gone through in the last year. Yet I have a few in my stash. I tend to stock up on the products I love and I sure love this one. It usually use it once in a while and then sometimes i will use it as spot treatments. The only downside to this that the tube can accidently give me a little too much.
My signature scent I have been using it since I was 18. I adore this scent its just perfect for me. Amazing affordable price. Everyone around me identifies me for this smell. I always get asked what i am wearing. Will keep buying it until the stop making it and then some.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Strawberries and Champagne

I love this I have always bought the eau de toilette because its fits perfect in my bag. The smell is amazing it doesn't work for everyone because of their body chemistry. Thankfully this works for me.
I have gone back and forth to this product for years. I Didn't much like it a few years ago but now I am more aware of the benefits it has and the down side to it. I use this as part of my beauty regimen. I use it 3 times a week max. I have found that when i use it I need to dampen my skin and use gentle ( the most gentle that i can) let it sit in my face for a few seconds for a max of 30 seconds then wash it off. It does wonders to my skin makes applying my makeup a breeze no flakiness. Will buy it.
I was expecting a lot i will admit my expectations were set very high. I have always loved every single bonne bell product I have previously bought. I bought a big package which had two of each M&M color. The smell wasn't very pleasant. The taste was ok. But For me it wasn't the worth my money I disliked it from the time i opened it. I tried it out for a few days never again will i buy this.
I like this product it does its sole main purpose as an eyeliner.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Defining/Angled Eye Brush
ScarletUnknown 12/27/2010 4:28:00 PM
I have three of these brushes. Not very good for the purpose it is for but it works great for highlight. I like using this for filling in my eyebrows. Not the type of brush you would expect to fill in your eyebrows with but they look perfect in my personal choice and opinion. The brush is well designed fits perfect in ones hand. Yet the metal holding the wooden handle is very flimsy. Ive had alot of the E.L.F brushes because i like to test them out. And a few of them had stood in good standing. Out of the average 3 this particular ones i have only one is still intact. The others have fallen of the handle. Thats why i give it a 4. Cant beat the price.
Ugh this broke me out so bad. Maybe im allergic but my dermatologist recommend it so i tried it. I found it in walgreens $ 12.00 so i bought one.Which i believe is the retail price. At the time i was on Tazorac for my acne. I broke me out i threw it out and thought nothing of it maybe it was because of the tazorac. I got pulled off the tazorac. I recently went an bought another bottle of this so i tried it for a week and i noticed i was having some sort of reaction. I stopped using it and my skin went back to normal. I know people who use this and love it we are all different. But the formula is good. It needs to be reapplied which i hated. it doesnt leave any residue
This was one of the most softest brushes i have owned. Sadly Mines broke i might have gotten a bad one but I loved the brush it just fell apart but not the actual brush just the retractable thing. I will buy another one.But adore it best ever.
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color e/s Cube in Gold Nugget
ScarletUnknown 9/12/2010 4:52:00 PM
I received this as a gift a long time ago the color was Gold Nugget . It seemed so beautiful the color was stunning. The packing was so cute. I applied it without primer it didnt show up at all. The color was not there it seemed like there was just shimmer not any color. So then i applied it with primer. It was ok not much staying power. I really wanted to love this product.
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer
ScarletUnknown 9/12/2010 4:45:00 PM
I bought this a while back. I was exited about it had saw alot of good things said about it. I opened the bottle and I could sense this scent like fresh smell. Rimmel seems to like the scents in the formulas. I tried it on it felt smooth i applied it. It works keeping my foundation in place.Minimizing pores it does sort of doesnt make them as obvious. I tend to go back to it. I like this product. No breakouts so its a good sign. Btw. The orange tint it does show up on some people. I found that if i blend it well it wont be orange.
