I love this product I usually have a hard time finding the correct shade to match my hair color but this iteam has my shade. My hair is almost black like a really dark brown and at first I wasnt sure about buying this in the darkest shade but I finally did it and I am glad I did. Did I mentio this product will seriously last you a long time you only need only a pin brop at a time! However you should be careful because if you put to much product you will lool like you sharpied ur eyebrows in. it looks so naturaly if you do it right.
This is a great product but honestly I have mix feels about it. The darkest shade the have is still a lil to warm and not dark enough for my almost black hair. Its is a great product however Im not sure its for me or if I will buy again.

This iteams is a five star iteam. I love it if I could marry it and have little flat top babies I would. It works great at apllying foundation and also my cream blushes. For my foundation it blends it so well is like my second skin as well with the blush such a great blemd. Usually when I apply my cream blush I hesitant because I dont want to tlook like a clown but this gives a great and natural flush. I will definatly buy more!
Liquid -Korres - Ginger and Vitamins Foundation, SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]
ltorres17 12/17/2009 11:15:00 PM
I was at first hesitant to purchase this product because my skin hates everything and I usually have to go return it at Sephora but so far it hasnt caused any break out so Im happy! It gives you such a radiant glow it looks lovely but for some reason I can aplly this w a foundation brush of it looks ashy or caked up. What I end up doing it using my fingers after I wash them. Well this has really helped w the application process it looks alot better or I use a sponge. The only thing that I dont like about this is that it really doesnt help w the redness from acne and it also doesnt do anything for oil control, but otherwise its a good product, Also a bonus that it has a spf. I will buy this again.

I love this foundation thats is all I really have to say about it :( I have very acne prone skin that usually cant take any kind of foundation because I will break out like crazy but for some reason my skin loves this stuff! It doesnt really do anything to control ur oil so I usually have to blot within 3 hrs but it is worth it. This foundation gives such a great finish its incredible and helps cover up some redness. As for my acne scares it some what hides them but unless you are staring at my face you cant tell. Seriously you should give this a try :) I also baught the 18 goat brush which was highly recomemded for this product and sadly my expectations were not met. IDK maybe Im doing it wrong but I fing the Sk flat top brush works better.
Best kabuki brush every hand down and a def HG of mine. It is sooo soft i used to have the Too Fcaed Teddy bear baby buki that I believed it was super softt but this beats that! I love how it creats great coverage because the bristles are so densly package and they dont shed either. Keep in mind that when I was my brushes I tend to be a lil harsh and this has not even broken a sweat. It took a while for my to find it because everyone was sold out but I found it at last at the local Target store and there was only two left! I believe everone should purchase one of these heck maybe even two because thery are great. Did I mention that they are so cheap you cant go wrong with this lil number. updated- I took a star off because the metal became detached and I cant use this untill I either fix it of buy a new one.
I love shimmer es so I think these are great. I have not tried the bright colors as Im not a fan of them but the dark ones and neutrals ones that Ive tried I am quite pleased with. They have not faded on me which I love and blend very well. I used my Ecco Tools es blending brush and this works great for me. I love how Alima send you evry samples w/ their iteams and they have excellent cs. Def will continue to buy. updated- the color payoff on these suck, wears off in a couple of hours
These lovelies are my HG. I adore them so much and the packaging is to die for. They give the best shimmer ever and the colors are so pretty. I have No Money No Honey and it gives a very pretty vintage look it has a champagne light golden look to it. My other favorite is Work is Overated. Now keep in mind I am not a fan of pink colors but this one is very subtle and has a very romantic look to it, it looks like a soft light purple with pink it it very cute. The other one I have is If Your rich Im single is a deep dronzy brown color that is not to harsh. I will def buy these again.
I baught this when my local Dillards was selling it for 50% off. Im not crazy about it because while it did give good coverage it was a lil oily for my taste and as the day wore on it set into my pores and lines. Im only 21 but I looked much older.
I had a love hate relationship with this product until I figured out how to use it. At fist I hated it I will agree that it made my look chaky and it gets worse as you try to get more coverage. So I ended up going back to my previous powder then on a whim decide to this a new way. This is what I do: I put a small amount of lotion on my hand add two drops of water ( to me this feel better because it doesnt feel too heavy) . Then I mix it w/ my fingers. Next I add tea tree oil to help w/ my acne only one drop but sometimes two comes out. I also mix this w/ my finguers. Lastly I add a pea size maybe two(depends on how much coverage I want that day) of the Alima foundation and I mix it very well together. And Vuala you have your own tinted moisturizer. When applying this I tend to rub outward towards my hair line. This technique believe it or not gives me great coverage and looks So Natural. I will def buy the full size in W4. IMO this is alot better and more natural ( with ing.) that BE which caused me to break out. I dont think this product has caused my to break out any more than usual. As for any less idk I was on bc for a 3 yrs and it messed with my homones super bad I had cystic acne and looked like a pizza face. Now that Ive been off of it for a while I only have like 3 small zits so Im happy either way. I forgot to mention that Alima has great cs if you need help selecting a shade get in contact w/ their mu artist tell what shade you currently use and they'll match you up. updated- I havent really been using this because I sometimes look too oily. or chalky
Makeup Brushes -Stila - #26 Perfecting Concealer Brush
ltorres17 10/4/2009 5:53:00 AM
This is my HG of conclear brushes. I baught this on a whim because it was dirt cheap how could I pass it up. Well It works GRrreat!! I have stuburn acne scares and refuse to be covered up by any brush but this babe does the trick. Its small enough for precise coverage but isnt so tiny that it doesnt work. Did I mention that it has not shed a single hair since I baught it which was about 4 months ago and I tend to scrub my brushes when I clean them. Also a big plus for me is that it is synthetic. Seriously you have to try this brush out. It Rocks!!
I baught this to use along with the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer which I hated but for this brush I have mixed reviews. Cons: Leaves a strick look you have to blend out w your fingers Didnt feel so soft It feel like if your pulling at your skin Pro: Synthetic hair Good Coverage Price wasnt bad In my opinion this wasnt so great of a brush and I have yet to find a good foundation brush. Def wont buy again.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free
ltorres17 10/4/2009 5:39:00 AM
I baught this product when I went to visit my sister in Washington. I told the sales rep that I wanted to try a tint moisturizer that was oil free and would give me a dwey look and he suggested this. I tried it for about a week and I Hated IT. Just Hated IT. It make me look oily like if my skin was melting off. Uggh and to top it off it made me break out. I dont know why ppl say its the best cuz its not. Im so glad Sephora has a return policy because I returned it as soon as I could. IMO making your own tinted moisturizer is a lot better!
This brush was rec to me by the sales rep at Sephora because I told her I prefer brushes that do not use animal hair (I dont like the fact that some animal had to give up hid fur for my face ) and I am so glad I baught it. I words so good foe my eye shadow and on my Cliniques cream brush. None of the bristles have fallen out so Im look to purchase other brushes from this band.
