Foundations -Cover Girl - Covergirl and Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 Foundation
ctlee420 11/5/2012 12:15:00 PM
First off, I love the pump, all foundations should have a pump, makes it so much easier and less mess. I love the texture it is super smooth, blends really nice, has medium coverage. The only downside to this foundation is it does get oily throughout the day and it's definitely not a long lasting foundation, but I use it just as my everyday foundation when I don't need a lot of coverage or staying power. I would suggest using this with a primer. I have had a couple breakouts, but I'm not sure if they're from this. All in all I would buy it again, but I'm still looking for something better.

I've been using this for about a month now, and for a $4 mascara it's pretty good! I bought it just for a cheap waterproof mascara for a camping trip and I've been using it ever since. It holds a curl in my super straight lashes and stayed on after full day of swimming. It did however lose a point for the brush which is a little too big in my opinion.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-tanning Lotion

I've been using this for over a month now and by looking at the reviews it seems you either love or hate it. I don't mind the sparkles, I usually apply it at night and they're gone by morning. It doesn't streak, I'm pretty pale and it give a pretty natural tan that lasts for about 3-4 days. My only complaint would be how it fades, very blotchy after those 4 days I had to either exfoliate to get it off or keep re-applying.
This stuff burns!! And it comes right off every time I curl my eyelashes. The only thing I like about this stuff is the brush.
WOW! This stuff is truly amazing! It really does resurface your skin. My skin is so much smoother and more uniform. I don't even need to wear foundation anymore, love it! The only downside is the price, it's not cheap.

These are my go to makeup wipes! They're affordable, they take all your makeup off and they don't leave any residue on your face. I will always repurchase these :)

I LOVE the smell of this stuff, but that's the only thing I like about it. I guess it kinda made some of my split ends go away, nothing drastic. But ever since I started using this stuff my hair has been a complete rats nest, knots everywhere. All in all this pretty much did nothing for my hair, if even made it worse. Don't waste your money.

This stuff burns like hell if you get it anywhere near your eyes! It's not doing great things for my skin, and I find it to be a little greasy. Not doing it for me.
I bought this brush on a whim at my Pharmasave because I'd been eyeing the Mac 217 and 219 and these looked pretty close! Well when I took them home they were almost an exact dupe for them! The blending side might be slightly bigger than the 217 but not by much. I've had this brush for almost a year and have had no shedding. So if you're looking for the Mac 217 or 219 without the price tag, this is it!
Primer/ Corrector -GOSH - Velvet Touch foundation primer

This did absolutely nothing! Didn't make my makeup last any longer or go on any smoother. If anything it just made my skin oilier at the end of the day. I don't think I'll be repurchasing this!
This stuff is AMAZING!! I just turned 26 and my skin is changing and I'm suddenly getting zits like never before :/ I've been trying tons of acne products but since I have sensitive skin they all just made it worse, until I found this! I was using the Effaclar M for a while but I still had these really deep stubborn pimples that wouldn't go away! Since I've been using the Effaclar K all those pimples are finally coming to the surface and my skin looks a million times better. Seriously buy this stuff!
So far this is the best drugstore foundation I have found. I have it in 200 nude for combination/oily skin. It does dry really quickly on your face not giving much time for blending but I find if you use a damp sponge this makes the application much easier, and more flawless looking. My only problem with this product is the packaging! You always end up pouring out too much and it can get kinda messy, but I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a full coverage drugstore foundation!
Moisturizers -La Roche Posay - Effaclar Active Matt moisturizer

This stuff changed my skin!! I was having horrible acne for the past few months & couldn't figure out why so I switched to this moisturizer and I honestly don't have a single zit now! This is great for people with sensitive acne prone skin because most acne products cause people with sensitive skin to break out more. It is a little pricey around $30 but totally worth it to me!

uggh this stuff sucks!! It looks good for a few hours but by the end of the night my skin looks horrible & greasy.. and I don't even have very oily skin. Will not be buying this again I'll stick with my Revlon Colorstay!

Okay I don't know if my drugstore just got a bad bunch but I bought one and it had been cracked and there was no product in it, so I took it back to get a new one and all but one at the drugstore was cracked and the product had leaked out. So I bought the one without a crack and a few weeks later it's now cracked and all the product is gone!! What a waste of money, not impressed!!
