I got this as a sample from Sephora. and at first I just wanted to use it as a highlighter- was not a good idea...it seeped right into my pores and lines. gross! -But then as I usually have a few zits on my face, and def red bloches. I used this under my makeup. I just put a little right on top the spots that need it let it sit for a few minutes-usually do my hair.. -then just dab it a bit with my finger. Then put my foundation on top of it. and it totally stays in place and gives me the best coverage I have ever seen a concealer give. I will be buying myself a tube! -once my sample is gone :)
Polishes -Joe Fresh Style - Nail Polish - ALL COLOURS

I don't know what everyone is talking about. This nail polish is totally awesome. Seriously. I just bought these on a whim, along with Essie. I bought one in white, red, and silver sparkles. I love the brush it is easy peasy to use. 3 for 10$!! I loved the sparkle nail polish I got, obviously with a few layers it was perfect. The best sparkle nail polish I have ever got. I put the red on first expecting it to be crappy,cheap and streaky, but it was the total opposite, It was rich and went on smooth and all I needed was one. coat. I have never.ever. had a nail polish where one coat looked amazing. I wasn't going to get my hopes up and write this review asap, so I waited 4 days to see how the staying power was. I was really expecting it to chip off and then there goes my awesome find! But NOPE it is not chipping, pealing or bubbling. And one more plus is that it dried very fast. The only little thing I don't like about it is that it is too small! I want more!
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

This is the best thing I have ever bought. I feel like I have big pores. I definitely have bumpy skin and a touch of acne. This stuff totally smooths out my skin and makes any sort of make-up that I put on top of it looks smooth and silky. Even powder. Even in the parts of my face that have tons of movement like around my mouth, smooth smooth smooth sailing!
Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation

I have difficult skin, starting with-extremely oily. But flakey. Its retarded. I have controlled my flakiness with microdermabrasion. But am still overly oily. This make up-I wear #35 I think. Is incredible. you only need a bit to cover face and neck (with the right primer-porefessional) It has long lasting wear. It does not oxidize. Or spread-which most foundations do on my skin because I am so oily. It has great coverage and makes my skin look flawless.-even tho it doesn't stay completely mat all day because of my skin. It never looks greasy! I also like that it comes in a squeeze bottle because it feels like I am getting every last drop.
Cons -separates on my skin -gets darker after application -oily -is not '24 hours' Pros -the undertone of the color is perfect for me which is yellow -the finish is nice -buildable I still really like this foundation even with the cons. I think the problems of it separating have to do with my skin and not the product itself, because every foundation I have tried does. I like the coverage a lot.

Was excited to try this product. For all the hype BB cream gets I was very disappointed. 1.too orangey-the color did not match at all 2.hardly any coverage 3.very oily 4.too expensive for the quality that it is
