This is the best powder foundation (I use nude) I've tried many best selling high end low end powder foundations n like I said this is the best so far! I wish for the price there would be more product tho!
Ugh at first I loved this bc it was buildable, lengthening and holds a curl.......fast forward a month. Like all mascaras there was a honeymoon period! Ugh. It becomes dry n the fibers get pronounced and messy. Bummer! For now I will continue on with CG Volume Exact waterproof mascara.
A MUST FOR WOMEN WHO'S ROOTS R SHOWING! Also I bought a $50. can of Oribe hair texturizing spray. It smells good but does not give me the clean feel this $7.Batiste spray gives me. First of all for dark, med, light brown hair with blonde highlights this spray is awesome. It camoflages the dark roots but not looking chalky n if u feel it is too powdery white simply massage in at roots plus that motion creates more volume! I have the" blush" fragrance that at first I wasnt too sure about but it does not smell like a bathroom deoderizer and doesnt smell cheap like u would expect from a cheap spray. The smell does go away but u wont b spraying the whole length of your hair anyway. I will try the "tropical" and "original" scent. Great product!
Yuk! Accentuates lines. Better to buy Laura Mercier brightening powder!
Ugh I can't believe Allure has this on their new beauty awards list!! This product is chalky thick n way too concentrated. It is literally a paste! Splurge especially if you're over 40 n buy Cle de Peau concealer. btw I'm always right about cosmetics cuz Imma cosmetic junkie! Don't know how some can b soooo wrong ;)
My 20 year old daughter wasnt into lipgloss much until I sent her this gloss in the color Muse. This is such a unique color! Biege enough but with a very slight pink hue in it that even pink haters will love if they try it on! This color seems to glow even in the day time....kinda hard to describe but it is a very sexy color! I have almost all colors available bcuz this is far better than any brand Ive tried (and returned!) and Ive tried too many to count. It has a very light appealing scent and a luscious texture! Also u get a very good amount for the price!

HANDS DOWN THE BEST PRODUCT I USE IS BETTER THAN LANCOME AND EVERY HE PRODUCT IVE TRIED! THE WATERPROOF EYE MAKE UP REMOVER IS CALLED LUMENE WATERPROOF REMOVER FOR EYES AND LIPS. U CAN FIND IT AT CVS.
This powder is good for a quick job of absorbing oil but it is too thickening( and not in a good way) and dulls the hair. My daughter turned me on to a superior product called Rockaholic by TIGI dirty secret dry shampoo. This stuff absorbs oil and fluffs the hair making it fresh and smells good!! Excellent product girls!
Although I found a better product (see below) I keep coming back to this product as a cheaper alternative for running errands in the morning before I wash my face again n do my serious makeup for the day. The best drugstore foundation powderI have found. Great coverage no chalkiness and does not magnify pores or lines! I just hope they dont discontinue. Seems to b getting harder to fine. The color choices I consider pretty much rt on. Find this n u wont b disappointed. I am still curious about other brands. Im going to purchase Shiseido Powdery Foundation n Ill update what I think. Update...I sampled Shiseido and it is an excellent product but too yellow for me then I found Too Faced "Amazing Face Foundation Powder" in perfect nude. This is now #1 for me. It is $32.00 but cheaper than many HE brands and u get a decent amount of product. Excellent quality!!
To chalky and mask looking. If I was stranded on a island n this is all I had then I would use it....yes I would wear it being stranded thats how sick I am about cometics!
C update bellow. I bought this in the waterproof. THIS IS NUMBER ONE!! U name the brand of any mascara n Ive prob tried it since Ive been on an ongoing quest every year to find the perfect mascara. The color is a rich black it does not weaken the curl after a lash curler and no stupid bendie thingies on the end of my lashes that I have to pick off with other mascaras... know what Im talking about? My other favorite n prob would still be if it had this carbon black is CoverGirl VolumeExcact (red tube blue band around the top) A wonerful waterproof! The brush in the Lorealvoluminous is a bit big so I cleaned the brush from CGvolumExact and it works great and actually fits the Loreal tube perfectly! This Loreal voluminous mascara is beautiful if u really smoosh it in at the lash base as you coat the rest of your lashes a very sexy look! UPDATE....UGH! Just like men this mascara starts to show its flaws after the honeymoon phase!! I do love the carbon black but the mascara is hard to build and does give the lashes odd shapes not a nice thick sweep and it developes those little bendy things at the end of lashes that I pick off :/ The Covergirl I recommended is not volumizing enough but still decent. Im back to my quest for the perfect man... I mean mascara ;)

Yuk is all I can say.Tastes awful kinda sickening!! I got a pack of three for $20. Smells good tho woopie! It also leaves a nasty film that feels very waxy. Way too much hype for this product n Im always rt about these things being a cosmetic junkie expert ;)) no really!
This shampoo and conditioner together are super duper! It allows for easy wet combing out even on my few damaged rubberbandish highlights. It makes highlighted hair the silkiest of any product n with all Ive bought n tried I could open up a store! This is THE BEST AVAILABLE THERE IS THUS FAR and for a decent price. I have long hair but it takes the least to get great lather n conditioning. I wash my hair squeeze out eccess water apply conditioner put it up with a clip and finish doing my body washing while the conditioner gets to work with the steam in the shower that helps open the hair cuticles for better penetration. Your hair will drink it up :))
Foundations -Cover Girl - Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation

Lousy foundation. It covers little settles into pores and leqves a yukky feeling of film on ur face. Yet another waste of advertisement and production costs. Save ur money on this one.
PEASE SEE UPDATE @BOTTOM...This blush in Tan is the best contour color I have found yet. Ive tried Smashbox new contour kit with the three colors and found the darkest color was too muddy the middle color is too orange to wear alone and the hightlight color a matte was too chalky to b of any use. I have tried warmth by Bare Essentuals n it was too orange. D &G Tan is the perfect brown because it is SHEER and powdery with NO orange and NOT muddy plus u only need this one color to contour beautifully.The powdery quality makes the color less intense for application n very buildable. This color has a hint of grey kind of taupey which makes it a wonderful monochromatic color. I didnt give a 5 due to the price. I know it prob cost maybe 5¢ for the actual product. Why wont these cosmetic companies give us girls a break n b more charitable! Oh well Imma cosmetic junkie addicted to textures, colors, formulas, packaging and the smell of lipstick so much I could eat it! Sooo Ill pay for my "fix";).....UPDATE! I was really liking this product until I noticed liittle brown dots which was this blush settling into my pores! Its going back to Saks. :((#@&!+%»=0"/??
