Foundations -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Mineral Foundation

possibly a holy grail foundation.i bought the soft beige,200,and i can't believe i like it so much.i also bought philosophy supernatural in sand out of curiosity and it doesn't come close to rimmels.the rimmel foundation wakes up my complexion and makes me look fresh,dewy,and gorgeous.u can't beat the price either.i've tried a lot of foundation,be,clinique,jane iredale,but this is perfect!
i'm so happy i gave this concealer a try.tried it in the store,was almost out of concealer at home and for the price,why not.it covers well,lasts all day,creases a little over time but i can deal with it,good price,great color match light/medium,and cute packaging.a definite repurchase.

ssg is easy to use and i can't belive i like it so much.there's no need to use bronzer and i don't have to search for a perfect blush to go with my perfect bronzer.although i have found my hg bronzer nars laguna,i do tend to go a little overboard when i apply it and the end result is overkill.with ssg i still get enough color and i get it in the right amount and in the right place on my face,which is very important. i moisturize,use jane iredale powder foundation,ssg and eye color and i'm done.
clean warm cotton is a unique fragrance and it's a nice addition to my collection.not the one that i reach for most often,but whenever i need to smell fresh i reach for clean.at first spray it's really strong,but after a few minutes it calms down and smells very tide fresh;like i just put on clean, fresh clothes straight out of the dryer.staying power is not great.less than 30 min on me.my husband says it smells like soap.i say it smells fresh like fabreeze fresh.the candle is fantastic.i smell it when i wake up in the morning from across the bedroom and it makes me smile.
great eyeshadow for creating the smokey eye.a soft and most wearable shade.
Eye Shadow -Bare Escentuals - Celestine Eye Glimmer

i got this and skyline in order to achieve the smokey eye effect.i didn't want to invest in the smokey tutorial kit,and i regret that somewhat.that kit comes with a brush and instructions.i thought i could just play with them until i figured out how to do the smokey eye.this is forevertinker's way(if anybody has a better idea feel free to advice): 1.blend celestine from lashline to brow 2.blend skyline from lashline to crease.go light for day,darker for evening 3.blend celestine from lashline to crease.this will lighten skyline if you overdone it and add the shimmer back.
i have the eyeshadow in cappuccino.it's a great e/s for using in the crease,blends great,stays put w/o creasing,great for that brown smoky eye effect.
i'm not sure if i like this as much as i thought i would.too shimmery/glittery? you've got to be careful b/c you can easily overdo it and it looks too theatrical,settles in pores easily,not a great eyeshadow b/c it's too sheer and it creases.not sure if i'll buy again,i'm kinda sad i didn't try nars orgasm first.
pretty,wearable color,in the neutral family.feels good,smells good, extremly moisturizing,however,the color fades after a while,doesn't last very long.when u put it on you get mega luminous color,gorgeous.in the fading process the lips look luminous and pretty.will i buy it again?i don't know.it's pretty expensive for the amount u get.i like that it's free of parabens and other chemicals.
pretty good bronzer,but not better than nars laguna. if i'm not careful when i apply it, it just looks too fake,like i'm trying too hard.the gold ruins it for me.
i've only used this product once and i really like it. i make my own liquid foundation by combining neutrogena spf 30 dry touch sunscreen with powder,usually id bare minerals.so i decided to give pf a try.the buff beige matches my complexion good,it leaves a matte finish.although i miss the glow/shine that i got from id bare minerals i can add a highlighter and end up with a similar effect.
i got this in medium beige.i was trying to save some money and decided to give this one a try.i have hereditary dark circles which can be scary sometimes; i usually need a heavy duty, industrial strenght concealer. i'm pretty happy with this one,kinda sheer, my circles are less prominent after using this product but i can still detect them.it doesn't settle in my fine lines as bad as the other concealers.i'll stick with this one for a while.

the lighter shade i adore;the darker one not so much,still a gorgeous color,it makes me glow,but it creases after a few hrs.may need to use a primer with this one.

i got this in pink spice.great lipstick.totally happy with this,could possible be my HG lip product.i usually don't go for lipsticks,but this is exceptional;creamy,long lasting,gorgeous color.could i possibly have found THE PERFECT lipstick shade? my decade long search may be over...
expensive for the amount you get,1 oz for 40.00,but a very gentle,feminine,clean fragrance.simply addictive.
