I have a grease ball face...nothing worked on my face. NOTHING. Every single sunscreen I used has made my face oily...enough to fry an egg on... Not this one. It glides on and stays put. I do get shiny after about 6 hours, but that is a blessing after what I've been thru. Soooooooooooo wonderful to finally have found a sunscreen that works with my foundation. I mix this right into my foundation and rub it in...dab with beauty blender. and tada! so wonderful!

This lipstick is the bomb! I love it!!! I bought #15 and its such a pretty corally pink color. The minute I put it on my lips, the moisturizing effect kicked in. Most lipsticks dry out my lips, including Chanel coco shines, but not this baby! it was sooooooo soft and creamy and the color is beautiful. I have been on the hunt for MAC's flamingo dupe and I think this will come as close as possible. Love it!! price is high but its so worth it! For ref...NC35 here with very pigmented reddish bluish lips... :)
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation

found my HG foundation! This thing lasts on my grease pit face. It blends in and melts into my skin and looks flawless. My pores are well hidden and I dont get too shiny. Nothing will keep my skin looking matte for long hours. I've accepted it, but this comes close ... I first picked Soft HOney for my NC35, and it was too dark, I tried warm beige and it was perfect. Since I have both bottles now, I just mix a little of both just to use it up. But the warm beige is a perfect color. This does oxidize but the color is perfect after one hour. This is a must try for oily skinned folks. Get it!
I had such high hopes for this foundation. The color that matched me was LF8 (NC35) ... it was the perfect color. I applied it with my beauty blender, and only after about 1 hour, it greased up on me. I have a VERY VERY VERY OILY FACE. You can fry an egg on my face. I even set it with a powder and still the oilies leaked through. I could see some patchy areas also. *sigh... I love the new covergirl 3 in 1 outlast foundation. It's so much better on my oily face...even though it's not HG...
one thought comes to mind...Mrs Roper from Threes Company. Ewww...I thought it would be a salmony color but was I wrong. I purchased it for charity reasons but the color is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bright and neon and just not attractive IMO
love it! I'm NC35 and this is perfect.. i get that great glowly look and its not tooooo shimmery... for the price you get a huge amount... love it love it!

oh yes yes yes! I finally found a nude that matches my old favorite Masque from the Mcqueen coll. Not too peachy, not too pale, not too pinky, just rightt..This lippie is sooo perfect for my nearly blue ultra pigmented lips...I'm NC35 and this color is soo nice. A little drying but i layer it with a nude gloss and its perfection.

I havent even tried this on my eyelids yet, but OMG! its so prettyyyy... i cant wait to try it out. its a beautiful bronzey,pewtery, shimmery shade..lots of very tiny sparkles, which IMO is not too over the top.This could work great as an eyeliner as well.I am almost tempted to get a back up.. but this jar is HUGE and i doubt i'll evr get to the bottom of it.its sold out online, but if you can grab one, plz do so!

after all the hype around this, i got mines today finallyy.. but it did NOT live up to my expectations. I may be the only one who feels like this, but its soo sheer and soo dupeable IMO. It seems so close to Steamy. Unless you pack it on, its really not such a unique shade. It is pretty, but just not as unique.. ahh well.. sigh.. EDIT- Ok.... I went back and tried this again... still same sheer color. It needs to be packed on to show up somewhat like it does on the blog pics. It leans towards blue on me and i think it should be taken into consideration that this color will show up differently on ppl with different skintones. (i am an NW25)
