I love this liquid foundation. I use both the Normal/Dry skin and the Combination/Oily Skin line. I have combo skin so depending on how my skin is, or even the weather, I switch between the two types. The normal one does feel lighter on my skin and I think because it has a higher SPF coverage I think it is slightly more smooth- feeling when its applied to your skin. (Normal-SPF 15. Combo-SPF 6) Application: I cover the top with my middle finger and turn it upside down so that only a small amount goes onto my finger tip and start applying it with that same finger in small sections on my face because it does set too soon for me to blend it in. If you perfer not to use your fingers, I also apply it with E.L.F.'s Studio Line Powder Brush (It's black with a flat top, $3 at target) Either way, the outcome is flawless. I just like using my finger because it warms up the product. Then set light with a powder. *medium to full coverage (I have light freckles & it covers them.. it also covers hickeys too haha)
* FLAKY!!!! I was really bummed out when I tried this because my friend loves this. I wear glasses so its annoying having flakes on my circles because it makes me look ghetto, gross and super tired looking!! I had a coupon so I am not too upset but I would have totally returned it if I had kept the packaging. It has huge brissels on the brush which makes it incontinent to do your bottom eyelashes. My HG mascara only cost $1.72 and it holds my curl & doesn't flake! try -------> NYC lengthing mascara! (the black long skinny one)
Skin type: oily in the T-zone, noise and dry in the cheeks. This only works for me during the weather change from summer to fall/winter (I live in Socal so I don't really have a winter season) Because my skin gets a little more dry, I use this as a moisturizer after I wash my face during the night before bed. I apply this about pea-sized amounts, or less, around my forehead, cheeks, jaw, and sometimes around my eye. I have only purchased the travel size 1.75 oz for (I think its $1.49 at target) you don't need a huge tube of this, this lasts me about 4-5 months. Smell: its not unpleasant if you are wondering, its not too powerful either. I'm one for smells, and this doesn't bother me at all.
I have normal skin with blemishes, I bought this at target for $14 I think.. it was not worth it. Its very thick looking, one tone type of coverage.
This massacra is ok.. I would prefer to buy the Colossal massacra over the Falsies. It did not make my eyelashes look anymore lengthier than they already are..

This brush works great for daily use and last a good amount of time. Mines still good after 6months of daily usage.
Very good brush! I love Sonia Kashuk's line of makeup brushes. They work amazing and last for a good amount of time. I have had mine since December and it still works like new. The brissels have not fallen out at all. I got a set of 5 brushes from Target on clearence for $15 so it was a very good deal!
I have tried tons of mascara from Maybelline and the Colossal I would buy again. It's not the greatest massacra out there but it does what it's supposed to do. I Always use other massacras for the first coat and use the Colossal for the finishing coat. I think it works best as a finishing coat.

This moisturizer is so amazing! I have been using it daily for a week now and my co-workers are already noticing a difference. It's only $3 and has SPF 20 so it is worth it! I use this under my foundation and they blend well together.
I love this eyebrow kit! It's amazing, it stays on all day. I use this eyebrow kit daily and I always get compliments on my eyebrows. It is an inexpensive product as well (:
Works great for only costing a dollar! I use E.L.F. essential & studio brushes for my eyes and face makeup.
