Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

I used this 2 times and threw it away. It is too pinkish orangey based, also it made me look sÃºper greasy and didn't notice any help hiding ir blurring my imperfections. I have to a cousin, she tried it and didn't like it neither my aunt and mom. Horrible product! It is not like a bb cream should be.
I really wanted to like this...I really like the liquid formula and I bought this to set and touch up if needed....well...i dont like it....i dont hate it neither. The packaging is gorgeous really! But I paid like $50 for this...i have been using this for 2 weeks, i only apply it when i do my makeup in the morning and i've already hit pan....so i will be finishing this very quickly! Also, although the color is really nice and it looks pretty on the skin it doesnt last a lot, only a couple of hours, and the matte effect dissapears really fast on my very oily skin, so I have to blot several times... I think it is not an awful product, but for the price I prefer maybe mineralize skinfinish, mac studio fix or maybelline dream matte.
I liked this mascara but only like ok...although I did notice it maked my lashes look longer I wasn't completely sure....until today when I saw my boyfriend and he (who doesn't notice at all my makeup, and never sees a difference in my face) told me: WOW! your lashes look suuuuper long today! and i was like...mmm really???? So, if he was able to notice a BIG difference is because this mascara us doing its job. I like the formula, and although i prefer thinner brushes, this works perfectly for me. It doesn't smudges at all and stays in place all the day. I do my makeup at 6 am and at 10 pm it is still there. I think the packaging is cute, purple with black and a lace design, I think another lace color would really stand out. And after that been said, I think I will be rebuying this mascara until I find something else that works just as fine.
Foundations -Too Faced - Amazing Face Oil Free Close-Up Coverage
ferisita 8/21/2012 11:13:00 PM
I have been using this for a week and I absolutely adore it! I think I have found the perfect foundation. I must say i have been using this with the primed and poreless pure primer, so I dont know if this works as well on its own. My shade is warm honey (I'm NC40) and it matches me perfectly (cocoa something waas too dark for me) it is a yellow foundation. It is very liquidy, not heavy at all, very easy to blend . It gives a natural finish, and I think is medium coverage...so i just apply a bit more where I need and I'm ready to go, even if I dont apply concealer. I think this gives the more "real skin" look, you don't look as if ypou were wearing makeup. My face is pretty oily and this keeps me with a fresh look, not comp,letely matte but not greasy, ad I almost don't have to blot my face, 2 times a day at the most. Packaging is sooo cute! it looks very pretty, and although it doesnt have a pump, it is very easy to pour makeup in your fingers without wasting product. This foundation has hands down the BEST staying power I've ever tried! (maybe because of the primer) i apply this at 6 30 am and at 22:00 I still have my makeup on. It doesnt transfer. Although it fades a little, it stays on veery decently! i dont need to touch up with powder. Also it didn't broke me up (the only brand that makes me break out like crazy is Loreal). I really recommend this foundation, and if you can afford the combo primed and poreless+ foundation you will loooooove this! It is kind of priey, but based on the results I got I will rebuy this maaaaany times!!!
Crème -Revlon - New Complexion One-Step Compact Makeup
ferisita 8/12/2012 1:26:00 PM
I bought this by mistake, I thought this was a powder...and surprise!!! it was a cream foundation! I have very oily skin, so I was afraid, my shade is tan natural (NC40), and i must say I'm liking this a lot. It has a natural finish, not super matte, but it stay on a loooong time! I wore this the first time like 10 hours, and although I had to blot, the foundation was still there. I have to say I'm very impressed, it actually lasts longer than my colorstay! and the shade matchs me better. The only creme foundation I have tried before was the bobbi brown one, that is soooo expensive, and I think this revlon one works even better and for a third of the price. The formula is very nice, creamy and easy to apply and blend, it has a medium coverage, and I usually look for full coverage, but this seems to work fine with a bit of concealer, and of course you have to set it with powder. In conclusion I recommend this a lot if you have oily skin, it doesn make me break out, it stay a very long time, it is easy to apply, the packaging is very convenient and maybe I will buy this again, just because I like to try different things.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17
ferisita 8/12/2012 1:03:00 PM
I bought this foundation in N4, I'm NC40 and the color is right for me. I like the packaging a lot, since I got the one with pump. The formula is super liquidy, very easy to blend, it does not feel cakey and it gives a medium coverage that can be buildable. I applied this with my fingers and a sponge and oly apply a little bit of concealer where I need extra coverage. Now, although I really wanted to like this, I found that L'oreal foundations make me break out like crazy! I also tried the infallible one, and it wass worst than with this. Also staying power wasn't great, after 3 hours it started to disappear. If you don't have any break out problems with other L'oreal foundations, this might work fine for you. I used this for 3 weeks and with all the pain in my heart I had to give it away. My skin isn't very sensitive and it is very rare that something breaks me out, but with loreal this happens everytime, no matter the foundation. I obviously won't be rebuying any loreal at all.
I had been looking for the perfect eyeliner for years, onea that was creamy, retractible, with sharpener, not too thick, that worked well on the waterline and on my lids and thatt didn't smudge...finally found it! I wasn't sure about buying this, but after discovering my boss who always had her eyes so perfectly lined and another girl at my job, i decided to buy it. It is the best eyeliner I've ever had, it fulfills all my expectations...i can use this in my waterline and lines very well, also on my lids,and it stays forever, until i take off my makeup. It doesn't smudges at all, unless yo smudge itt when you apply it. I use this everyday and also for nights out, and i never look like a raccoon or a panda. I tried before the urban decay's 24/7, lancome, l.a. colors, maybelline, covergirl, mac, and nothing works as nice as this....i suuuuper recommend this!!!
I LOOOOOOOVEEE this powder so much! I went on vacations and i ran out of my mac skin finish natural, and i went to a little beauty and accesories store and i saw this...there are a loooot of shades but they only had like 5, so I chose sand (I'm NC 40) and I loved the effect! I have oily acne prone skin, and this powder as everybody has said is very fine like velvet, sooo smooth!!! also it is not 100% matte, but it does not have nether shimmer nor glitter....it is a very nice natural finish. It las all day long...I use this as my setting powder and it really lasts since 6 am that i apply it until 10 pm when i wash it of...i don´t look greasy or oily at all. I pay for it less than 4 usd (49 mexican pesos) and i like this more than any of my chanel, mac, clinique or bobby brown powders!!! Deffinitely check this out!
I tried this first on a pink color, without any shimmer or design, and it was awful...it didn't work at all, but then I tried the one that seems like laces with nude color and they are perfect....although a tiny bit chipped the next day it was my fault because I didn't applied that finger properly...besides that I liked them a loooot!! I would recommen using only the ones with patterns or glitter, because the solid colors, at least for me were the worst thing on earth. They look very nice, and if your nails are short one package can be used for 2 manicures which is great because of the price. Also it takes 2 o 3 "stickers" messed before you can actually place them properly...so with practice it gets better...it's not super easy nor super difficult
Crème -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation
ferisita 4/2/2012 4:56:00 PM
I have very oily and acne prone skin, and I have been wanting to test out this foundation for long time...I read reviews here and was not very sure about getting this as it is not a cheap foundation and is double of the prize you would pay for a clinique or mac one (here in Mexico). My shade in bobbi brown is 4.5 warm natural and this suits me perfectly. So i gave this a shot despite some bad reviews and I really like this!!! ALthough it doesn't stay all thay my skin looks very nice, this is a medium coverage, and rather of applying more and more I use concealer on some spots. I apply this with a sponge and it sets very nice as a powder, I do apply some traslucent powder on top of it. As i said before, this is not a 24 hour foundation, but meanwhile it fades it is not noticeable any oil, or any strange color in my face as it may happen with other foundations that you can see how they fade. I like the finish! my face stays completely matte all day long, I don't look like I have a mask on...really worth the try!
Hair -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Oil Hair Serum
ferisita 3/29/2012 11:53:00 PM
I bought a small version of these at Sephora and I'm glad I didn't bought the normal size! The packaging is very practical and easy to dispense and use. I get the bottle with 15 ml/1/2 fl.oz. and I don´t think this works different than any other drugstore oil. I heard great things about this, but for me this didn't make any difference. I got this in Mexico, and it cost me $180 pesos, about 15 usd dollars...and for what I paid I could have bought so many bottles of something similar or better quality at Sally's. So I don't recommend this just because it is too expensive for what it does, add a little shine and help a little with frizz. Better save your money, skip this and got to Sally!!!
I was hestitang about buying this because I had previews bad experiences with the orly french manicure line....but I really wanted to try this color for my french manicure because I don't like to use those nudes colors...so I read the reviews here and after seeing all the positive reviews I went to buy it and I'm sooo happy!!! This makes my nails look very healthy and nice, it isn't like PINK color, but just the perfect amount of color. Recommend this a lot!
I have so many mixed emotions with this palette. It is a nice great value for your money considering that you get 12 eyeshadows, a double end brush and a really nice gloss. The quality of the shadows is great, i find them all to be very pigmented and to have a great staying power. My favorites are suspect, foxy, bootycall and blackout. But i think that this is not one of those all you need in one palette. Maybe I have not been very creative, but I don't find many ways in which I could combine this colors in just one great look and I often find myself using just one color from this and many others from different palettes to do my makeup. With the original naked palette I don't need any other shadow to create a look. So I think the original is better, and with both you can do almost any neutral look. Where I live we don't have return policy, but f we did had surely i wpuld return this. I'm not bashing on this, but for me it has a lot of all over lid colors and very few crease colors. I would recommend this for anyone who likes shimmery, silvery taupes and browns, but if you want an all in one palette definitely go for the original one.
Lipstick -MAC - Innocence, Beware! (Venomous Villains)
ferisita 3/13/2012 12:40:00 AM
I bought this in the shop collection since i couldn't get anything of the venomous villains. I'm NC40 so I can't pull nicely most nude colors like myth, and creme d nude more less. But this looks sooooo pretty! It doesn't make me look like a corpse...it doesn' t wash me away. It is just a nice nude pink that with smokey eyes will look like perfection. It looks nice by itself, although I really like hoy it looks with urban decay's lip junkie in naked. Cremesheen is my favorite mac lipstick formula. So for all of you medium, tan, olive girls that can´t use colors as the ones I said maybe this is the color that will wor on you!
LOOOOOVE this! I thought that this was a very plain color, and that is why I didn't bought this before...I have had this for a year and it is one of my favorite glosses. This looks good on every skin color, by itself or over a lipstick. I really like this over bombshell. It is a sheer peachy color with gold shimmer. Don't have enough words ti say hoy much I love this. Definitely a gloss that I will be buying over and over.
