Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear (new formula 2012)
bnavarro 5/30/2013 2:41:00 PM
Definitely agree with most reviews! WHY DID THEY CHANGE THE FORMULA?? It was soooo good. Even before reading that they had change the formula, I noticed right away that this wasnt the same thing... its cakey..last formula would be matte and not oily at all...This does get oily. At first I thought it was my moisturizer, i tried 3 different ones and i still had an oily face after about 5 hours. Also, I am desert Beige and the shade just seems too yellow and the finish...the finish is just not comparable to last formula. This new one does not cover my pores, is so cakey, SETTLES INTO LINES (even thou i dont have any wrinkle it settles under my eyes making my lines look obvious.) And this DID NOT happened with my older bottle.. Its just so noticable that the formula got changed. I had found my perfect foundation but now i gotta hunt for it again..Im pretty dissapointed.
Many people like it but to me it feels like it doesn't really clean that deep. Its so gentle that it feels like my makeup doesnt come off. I like to see bubbles or something when im washing my face but this has no bubbles no nothing. its my sisters but i would not buy it.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara

This mascara doe not do as it promises. The worst ive tried:/. I recommend not to waste money on this. the brush is like those rubber ones, formula is to the drier side. And this mascara did not give no length. Instead the tips of my eyelashes would just come off. Im guessing it was like fibers that suppose to add that length.it was also very clumpy. I was expecting length but the name is so misleading .does not add length at all. I really never get disappointed with my makeup but this is just a no work for me. Nothing positive to say about this.
This mascara is one of my favorite. I always repurchased but I found a better mascara its the jordana lash extreme. Anyways, this mascara is quite liquidy at the beginning . it lengthens wonderful! I really really like it and recommend it. Although, i would not recommend it for thin lashes or really short because it takes several coats to actually form length and thickness. One coat would not do much. I enjoy taking my time and working with it. This is exactly what you need to do with this mascara, WORK WITH IT.. after several uses the formula will get a little more drier. overall its a great product for my eyelashes.
Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind foundation

This foundation will give you a dewy/glowy finish but still looking natural and with a medium buildable coverage. IF you have an oily face I DO NOT recommend this foundation because it will look oily. I apply it with my elf powder brush and looks great on me. I have normal skin but i do get oily around my t zone. I use this as an everyday foundation . I have no fine lines but still this product makes me skin feel so smooth. I really like it because it feels like it covers and at the same time so lightweight. To control oil i would recommend topping it with a good matte powder. I use Maybelline Staypure ,but Im on the look for a better powder.
I got this product to try it out. Its expensive around $22! I find that the Maybelline PureStay foundation Powder is VERY similar to this. I defenitely would spend $6 instead of$22. Its an okay powder . I had high expectations, wouldn't repurchase. also, I did get oily quite a bit after 4 hrs.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara
bnavarro 5/21/2013 7:26:00 PM
I guess it all depends on your lashes.. I just read alot of negative reviews but it worked great on my lashes. It is the best ive tried.. It is very buildable and can work for a dramatic or an everyday look..Its just $3 , and its totally worth it...
I decided to buy this because everyone at youtube would say it was a great eyeliner so i decided to try it myself. It is an okay eyeliner, but i didnt like it alot. First, because the felt tip is so hard not flexible at all. Secondly, it is not colorstay at all the liner smears terribly and when i wash it off , my face turns black all over. (Dont ever cry with this liner on,hold it in or something, because it would just run down your cheeks and your gunna have black tears and black cheeks, it makes a huge mess )
This product leaves a very,very natural finish yet covers great.. it does get greasy on me just a little.. i found that after using this product my skin felt more soft than using other foundations that dried out my skin. The thing i like more about this product is that it covers but it is not so visible(you cant see the makeup,blends beautifully with a smooth and semi-matte finish) Although, I dont know if i would repurchase just because its a good foundation but not the best ive tried and its very expensive.
This new line is really pretty and fancy. i bought the lipgloss LG3 which looks like a pretty mauve pink but when i applied it on i can hardly see ANY color. All i get is shine. I would not recommend this product because you have to load up the color alott to actually show up.
love it because its matte black and the price! its like 2 dollars. cant go wrong. just a regular black shadow that does the job just as well as high end ones. love it !
GREAT PRODUCT! i can compare it to Estee Lauder double wear. i am Buff in revlon and its perfect. lasts all day and looks very good. not oily. no pump but im okay with that :) does dry up quite fast so i work in sections on my face. i apply it with my elf flat top brush. UPDATE: Yes it was a great product at the beginning, but after a bottle i noticed a change on my skin. It was dry and pores and acne marks were more visible. I had to opt for a moisturizing makeup because i figured the finish affected my skin since it dried out so fast and was so long wearing. Now that i havent used Colorstay, i feel my skin got smoother.
defenitely a must have. i absolutely LOVE this lipstick. i am now a fan of rimmel lipsticks. this was my first lipstick by this brand ( my boyfriend bought it for me) :) .it leaves my lips soft and the color is pinkish peachy. will defenitely look forward into buying more from this brand. if you are unsure whether to buy it, im telling you, give it a try! its worth it.and its amazing.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara
bnavarro 1/14/2013 11:04:00 PM
super thick is a great mascara! i love it. thickness, definition, lenght, it has it all.. the only reason it doesnt get a 5 star is because the formula can seem to dry up a bit. it turns opaque and i do not like that because it feels dry. but it is a great product. i recommend it because it leaves my lashes long and beautiful.
This powder is okay: major concern is, leaves face oily after a few hours of wearing it. i do not recommend this product for people with oily skin. Also, it has a bit of shimmer and im a matte lover. overall its just okay.
