i don't use this as a concealer (way too cakey) but I do use it as a lipstick base. it makes my lipstick last forever!
this is sticky, as others have said, but if you let it sit for a second and then pat it it isn't sticky anymore. i am vampire pale so this does show up on me, and i can put too much on! but it looks very natural and makes me look alive, awake, and pretty. the only problem is that is doesn't last as long as the other cheek stains. that is why i took off a lippy.
This foundation had a nice feeling to it. The packaging is also kind of neat. But it was orange! It was like most drugstore foundations and oxidized immediately on my pale skin.
My boyfriend wears this on special occasions and when he does I pretty much want to tackle him! Spicy and Seductive!
Naturally I have dirty blonde hair. It looks ok but its just bland. So a couple years ago I decided to "funk it up" and make it a BRIGHT blonde (03 Sun blonde). And it looked wonderful! The first couple days the color is a little intense but after that it fades to a natural tone and stays that way for weeks. My hair feels and looks awesome after I use it too. And all that for like $3!
no thank you. I purchased this thinking it would make my face look a little more awake in the morning and provide some spf. unfortunately it just hurt and then did not absorb. it contains "sparkles" in it that are supposed to make you glow but they actually scratched my skin! it also left me greasy all day. there are many other moisturizers that are better than this.
Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Active Light Makeup SPF 25 ] [DISCONTINUED]

I live in the DEEP south, so humidity melts every single type of makeup I put on including powder (and I don't have oily skin!). I also sometimes work outside and in fish ponds. This however stays fresh all day and does not sweat or melt off. The coverage is medium on me, definitely not sheer. It covers plenty. And the added spf helps a lot in my morning routine. It looks fresh and does not come off, even in the pool. Highly recommend this foundation for southern gals.
I started using this when I was fourteen and it provided sheer coverage for my pre-pubescent skin. I veered away for years until I was 20. I now have moderate acne, and acne spots and scars that are prominent due to my extremely pale skin. I have found it again and love it! I can put on my face makeup in the morning in about 1 minute. And it looks great! It covers all my acne scars and my dark circles. I don't have to use a concealer. The only complaints I have are that it is a tad too orange for my skin tone and it does not last very long (product, it lasts a long time on my face). But due to its low price it is actually okay to refill it every 3 weeks or so.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This is a wonderful moisturizer, but not for me. I live in Alabama and in the summer you have to be very careful about what you put on your face. The oil can actually go into your pores-that's not good! But for people living in drier climates this would be a perfect solution to the perpetual problem of finding a perfect moisturizer. edit: I do not use this as a moisturizer I use it to take off my makeup at night. It melts everything and I think keeps my acne at bay.
After seeing this in magazines and on stars in the movies I thought it would be a perfect addition to my makeup bag. Unfortunately it was a waste of $28. I have large lips so the stain tends to streak when I put it on(due to the brush and the consistency of the liquid), and is very noticeable. And it did not last that long at all. I was disappointed. The cheek stain would probaly look good on people with skin not as pale as mine-because on me it looked garish.
Concealers -Cover Girl - fresh complexion concealer

This has been my conceler stand by for a few years now. It does not do a good job of covering my horrendous under eye circles but it does cover the blemishes pretty well, and it doesn't look like you have smeared on makeup- very natural and fresh. But I don't think it would be good for people with dry skin-it would probably make it flaky.
I truly love this lipstick. I have very pale skin and almost white blond hair so lipstick that isn't jarring on my face is difficult to find. This lipstick stays on for hours and there is no flakiness or the like afterwards. I have "breathless" and it surprisingly suits me very well-and lasts a very long time. I also like that its not super shiny or glossy so it doesn't look like you are a wannabe JLO. And it keeps it from wiping off easily. If you have dry lips I would recommend putting on lip balm beforehand.
