Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. - Mineral Infused Face Primer

primers are supposed to stay put and help smooth out your face to prep your skin. well this was a very silcone slippery substance that just sinked right into your skin in seconds. it gives a really glowy shine so i recommend this for those with dry skin. those with oily skin it just be a hit and miss. i have oily skin so this primer does nothing for me. keeps it in place for about an hour then everything just sweats off in the sun. yuck. cute decent plastic packaging and with a pump for easy application. its only a few bucks so rather get this then the smashbox. same ingredients but just cheaper value.
Pretty little pink tube with that neon green top. Looks so cute but other then the look everything comes down to a zero volume and zero lenghthening. I have small and dense lashes so bristles aren't that accurate to catching everylash. So much cons to this one. A few I can say is that the formula is very watery then smears and smudge throughout the day. Clumps and drys afterawhile. Spider looking lashes are so unsexy. And one more. I found I was losing more lashes after wearing this and its so not suitable for sensitive eyes. Will not buy again. Won't recommend to those with sensitive eyes or sparse lashes.
This mascara gives your lash that natural boost. The application is a rubber bristle and coats each lash to the smallest lash exactly where u need it to go. Zero clumps to each and every lashes unlike the other fiber mascaras. Only con is the tube is so long and cheap material. Afterawhile the markings of the product would rub off and comes out to one of them no name products. Cheap material and application gives no extra volume or lengthening. I would recommend this if u just going for that natural everyday define look. Other else prime it to give your lash that extra pow.
Works and doesn't irritate sensitive skin. Gives your skin that baby smooth skin after the first use. Tingly feeling but yet it feels so soothing at the same time. Nice to have something so affordable and so versatile for a lot of skin type. I have oily and sensitive skin. This huge tube will last u a long time. Works as good as the higher ends but half the price so u can save tons. Only con is I wish they made the packaging a bit fancier. Tube is so plain and reminds me of weird lotions. Haha.. other then that it works and makes your skin so kissably soft and deep down clean to the dirtiest pore.
Definitely highly recommend this for ladies with oily skin and combination. This foundation stays put and can make any high end foundation looks unworthy to try. What can u ask more but a foundation that wont rub off on your clothes or your phone. Its even hard to sweat this off and can past thru rain without streaking. Super foundation and even better cause revlon makes a variety of shades to choose from. Only con is its a pour application so it will be hard to dispense when its low got to wait for a few mins till that foundation can come out. Cause its pretty thick unlike the watery ones.

Compact look sleek but why does it have to turn to the side and mirror is down under the sponge. Just makes it difficult for u to apply even more. Color shades are limited yo get. I couldn't find the right shade. So either I look too dark or too light. Good coverage then most powders and silky smooth. wish maybelline had more shades to choose from. Compact is super cheap looking and light. I would buy it again ig there were more shades to choose from. Overall its a hit and miss for oily skin girls.
Used this patch plenty of times and each time I get very good results. This product actually does its job removing all them icky blackheads deep down. Keeps skin clean deep down. Cons are its a bit pricey for a few strips and packaging is unnecessary for a big box for a few strips. Come on. 10 times more strips can fit in.
Cute little bottle and pour spout. Not easy to apply and won't stay put long enough on oily skin. It transfers onto everything and my phone has foundation stain from talking with my phone next to my face. Funny how I have to clean my phone everytime. Just won't recommend it to anyone who has a combination or oily skin.

I'm oily and I love something that can eliminate my shine throughout the day. This product doesn't cut it. Super hard to dispense cause no pump. Slides off when I sweat from heat and does not hold foundation in place long enough. My skin gets oily a few hours after putting this on. Super annoying when it rubs off everywhere. Ugh.. won't buy again.
What can I say. Its gentle on my sensitive combination face and I even use it on my baby skin when baby wash is too harsh. Leaves it feeling silky smooth and clean and best of all no fragrance to irritate your vulnerable soft skin. Wish the packaging was done a bit better. Looks so simple and like the hospital products they use. Other then that its also a bit pricey. I have to use a lot to get clean result so I don't recommend buying this if u like to use it everyday. its not a product I would like to pay so much for unless I have a coupon or discount.
Generally one of my go to foundation whenever I can find my shade. Only con is it have no pump and its pretty thick formula. Covers medium to full and it won't sweat off at all. I have oily skin and its sensitive. I don't find any irritations from this product and zero breakouts. Highly recommend to those with combination and oily skin.

Came on patchy and did not last long. Shades are difficult to find either too dark or way too much light. Wish the powder brush came better it was way too stiff for my sensitive face. Itchy and yet didn't cover beautifully.
