Concealers -L'Oreal - True Match Super Blendable Crayon Concealer
electropop3545 5/11/2013 3:36:00 AM
This was a big NONO for me. This has a creamy consistency, but is a little drying so definitely not ideal for under the eyes in my opinion. It did not have enough coverage for me and did not last throughout the day. For someone with oily, acne-prone skin, the lasting power of the coverage is a big factor. This concealer did not do its job in concealing. Do not recommend.
I bought this in the shade ivory. This product was okay for me. I have EXTREMELY oily skin and I have super abilities to oxidize anything I put on my face. Unfortunately, this product did not last on me. I used it for my under eye circles, around my nose and the bridge of my nose, etc... It has a creamy texture, but did not seem to blend seamlessly into my skin, and by the end of a 6 hour day, my concealer was nowhere to be found. But I do recommend the Maybelline Instant Age rewind dark circle concealer in Brightener. I already used one up and will repurchase after this sad, unsuccessful purchase :(
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
electropop3545 2/7/2013 12:11:00 AM
This is my first Covergirl foundation and I must say I love the formula. It blends beautifully and leaves the skin matte and soft(and touchable~~) I must say the coverage is decent as I did not use concealer on my hyper pigmentation and used a little more foundation as concealer on my trouble spots. I do have acne prone(and VERY OILY) skin and this lasted my 9 hour school day (taking into consideration that I used my Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray but nevertheless I use it with all my other foundation routines). Lasting power is awesome. The shade I got was 810 Classic Ivory for my NC25 light asian skin tone. I would say it is very neutral but leaning towards the yellow tone. Color match was great for me. Highly recommend for Oily, Acne Prone skin.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

How cute are these?? Looks like little colourful eggs :) I love the Sweet Mint the best out of the EOS lip balms. I love the fresh feeling of mint on my lips and very moisturizing. Gives a slight shine on my lips, giving them that a little finish that makes my natural lip colour look more kissable. Round shape actually makes application easier in my opinion. I like to alternate between this, the Honeydew and of course the original Burt's Bees. All 3 products are great!
Concealers -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Spot Concealer
electropop3545 10/5/2012 11:33:00 PM
I've seen this for a long time as I tried the Clear Complexion foundations 2 years back but I never got around to buying it. Pleasantly surprised by the creamy formula and coverage! I have extremely oily skin(& acne prone) and never have I had a concealer that would stay put for at least 6 hours. This has great lasting power, doesn't break me out and awesome for hiding the more visible acne without irrititating it or bringing to a head by the end of the day(worst thing ever -.-) Great buy. Highly recommended.
Does get a little gloopy on the bottle after a few uses. But I like the colour. No delicious rosy smell like benetint sadly :( Again this does dry the lips like bentint but layer a vaseline right over it and you're good to go. The colour doesn't show up as much as I'd like it to but on the lips, very cute light pink colour. I would repurchase because I love tints and this is better than most I've tried.
The smell is heavenly. Love the smell of roses. Does dry the lips a bit but I always apply vaseline after I put this on. No problems there. Have tried on the cheeks, lasted longer than powder blush and doesn't break me out. Natural looking which is great. Did I mention the smell?? :)
Great product. I have an incredible knack of melting off any eye makeup product off my eyes but this managed at least 4 hours? Bravoooo!! Better than reapplying every hour :) Gorgeous colour as highlight on inner corners and under the eyes.
For a girl who can't find a mascara that doesn't smudge, this is for YOU! I must say I was highly impressed by this mascara. Volumizing and lengthening for those thin asian lashes. I would say this does have a tubing effect (explains the NO SMUDGING)...Okay it did smudge a little but verrrrrry little compared to every other mascara I've tried on this freaking planet. Another HG mascara I use that doesn't smudge is Estee Lauder Zero Smudge lenghtening mascara. I feel I like the look of fairydrops on my lashes better than Estee Lauder's. Highly recommend both mascaras though. Both are same price but try the Estee first because that doesn't smudge at all on me. I'm find a glimmer of hope everytime I find something that doesnt smudge :')
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
electropop3545 8/21/2012 8:37:00 PM
I really hoped this would work on me since my makeup never lasts more than 4-5 hours due to having oily, very oily skin. Also having acne, I would like my makeup to stay on my face rather than melt off into grease and show my imperfections :( I feel like it did allow my makeup to last a bit longer than usual but if someone sprayed this on my face without me knowing, I wouldn't notice the difference. Perhaps for those with less oily skin than I.
Bronzers -Guerlain - Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder-Blondes 01
electropop3545 6/19/2011 7:28:00 PM
I love this product. Gives a sheer glow to my asian NC 25 skin. I like the hints of pink to it because I like to bring this to the apples of my cheeks as well. Not shimmery, you do have to build a bit for it to show up but I love how its sheer hence the name. I honestly don't know how much it costs( its Guerlain so prob really pricey) and my mom gave it to me! No I wouldn't repurchase unless my mom was willing to buy me one
Mascara -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara
electropop3545 6/19/2011 7:22:00 PM
LOVE this! No smudging(I never used to wear mascara because nothing works, the tube ones make my lashes too stiff), great brush, lengthens, volumizes and separates my asian lashes like theres no tomorrow.Holds a curl. only like $23 but cheaper at duty free shops(I like to stock up). If you're unsure whether to spend 20 bucks on this, go to the EL counter and ask em for a sample,they got lots ;) Finally after years of short lashes, I can flaunt em.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye booster eyeliner + serum
electropop3545 6/19/2011 7:13:00 PM
Finally something that DOESN'T SMUDGE! Man years and years of trying find anything that doesn't smudge on me and physicians formula finally does it! Gotta love this, pigmented , smooth, I absolutely adore the brush tip. My only concern is that it does flake a bit on me(but what doesn't), but out of all the hundreds of eyeliners I've tried, this lasts the longest. Also sometimes the liquid doesn't come out so I have to shake it and draw a couple of lines on my hand but other than that HG babyy!!
Finally a foundation that actually works for my acne prone oily skin! I have ridiculously oily skin and its lasted me all day. One pump is enough for my whole face. It looks matte(like skin) at first but as the day progresses, I get a bit oily but it looks DEWY~ most foundations start to rub off from the oil but the coverage stays with this one. I bought Ecru Beige for $20 at shoppers. The color matches my asian skintone(NC 25). The color is very similar to the infamous BB Creams and gives a slight whitening effect if you're into that kinda stuff. Very blendable. I did not set with powder but I think I'm going to buy the loose powder from this line!
