Picked this up at Walmart in Baldwin Park, CA. It has no smell and it feels and looks like a matte lipstick. I got 416, Berry Rich. The other colors looked frosty and I hate frost. So, I ended up purchasing this color and I LOVE IT! it is a very cute berry color on my lips. Staying power is the same as a regular lipstick.
I have extremely oily skin... As well as dry patches that I get from using acne medication. This is by far the best foundation I have tried! My makeup stays longer than other foundations I have used (Diorskin, MAC SFF, Lorac, MUFE Matte plus, EL Double Wear, Revlon, Prescriptives Flawless...). Yes, my face still gets oily, but this one seems to last longer an looks very nice on my bad skin. It covers my red spots and scars pretty good. It doesnt cause my acne to flare up. Before applying foundation i put on DDF ultra lite moisturizing dew for my entire face. If ur oily u should try this! Its oil free and its not really dewy at all. It does not make me feel oily at all. In fact it makes my skin feel clean and fresh. Im not a fan of heavy creams so this is a HG for my oily skin. Hope this info helps someone :)
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

I like using medium to full coverage and long lasting foundations. I have tried Estee lauder Double Wear, Dior Extreme Foundation, MAC SFF, Prescriptives Flawless Face Foundation, and so many more high end foundations... I have extremely oily skin and want something that can last all day. I tried this foundation and in a few hours my makeup started to get cakey and blotchy. It looked really bad. I have combo skin so it looked pretty bad around my nose and cheeks where i have dry flakes. Im an NC30, 021 Linen in Dior, Tawny in EL... I got the 200 Soft Beige. Im back to my higher end foundations :/
Tried the PK331 which I think Its named DIVINE. Beautiful bright pink. Sorta has a veryyyy light mauve tone. Very creamy. Was about to spend the 25 bucks when my friend convinced me to find a dupe. We sure did! Found it in Sephora Lip Attitude Collection in Poetic Pink 07. This one seems more hydating than the shiseido version. It costs 12.00. Yay!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Midnight Swirl Lipgloss in Sassy Sangria LE

Got this at the 99 cent store. I'm more of a neutral kind of girl, but i've been experimenting with different colors and i have worn Sangria with a burgundy shirt and dark jeans and i looooooved the look. I hate lip glosses but the color is nice n the taste is great. It is super thick as well, however its nothig to die for.
I just bought this today. I'm NC30, Prescriptives Flawless Skin in Ivory and I found a close match in TRUE BEIGE for the twin cake. I was given tips to try sand beige, soft beige, and even perfect beige, but the best one was true beige. Gives nice coverage. I love full coverage. So I will update in a couple of weeks to see if this thing breaks me out. I'm currently using MSF in medium and haven't broken out from it. My breakouts have calmed down since using the glycolic peels from MUAC in 65% and BC. Oh I applied the twin cake with a skunk look alike brush from EOB. Its great for sheer application. So I just buff more where I need coverage.
Liquid -Prescriptives - Flawless Skin Total Protection Makeup SPF 15

I'm NC30 in SFF. With Prescriptives Flawless skin I'm Ivory. Great match! I love that its sweat resistant, gel based, and long wearing. It feel so light! And this is coming from a girl that loves full coverage. I just have to apply a bit more to the areas that need concealing and then apply my timeBalm concealer in light/medium and Voila! I'm done. Oh I also set with MSF in Medium. I hate that it doesn't have a pump. So I transfered it to a bottle that has a spatula attached to the cap. I apply on my face and pat with my beauty blender sponge. The sponge is slightly moist. I just wet it and dry with a towel. Hate the price too! Too expensive. Prescriptives read me... Lower the priceeeee! You probably get more customers.
I so so so love these lip spa lippies! I have Spirit and Sake, beautiful rosy colors. Spirit is best on me for a smokey look with dark colors. These have a light minty sensation on the lips. Sort of like Burt's bees lip balm, but NYX's is way light. The colors are sheer. I have dry lips and these help to moisturize. I just bought 3 more in Vintage, Jewel, and Spirit on cherryculture. They have them right now for 4.00 and shipping is cheaper than NYX's website! Go buy!!!
I have this in TINT. I love the neutral and smokey look, and this blush is the perfect color for my MAC NC30 skin match, although it really depends what your prefer, but I go for a peachy rose color. I apply with a skunk brush look alike from EOB and it leaves my cheeks looking prettey!
I got this in a swap, just wanted to try out the color. Oh! It is my HG now. This concealer matches my skin perfectly. I'm a NC30 in MAC and using the CREAMY GLOW. I have lots of blemishes due to acne and this concealer covers the redness very well. The consistency is creamy. Overall this product is great for covering imperfections.
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara
mamibg 3/15/2009 2:06:00 AM
First of all, I have long eyelashes and had been using drugstore brands. Wasn't too happy wit results so I decided to try the Diorshow Iconic. Luckily, I got it from a swap. The mascara works great on me. Very sexy n sophisticated look. My eyelashes do curl up. Just make sure u wiggle at the root and rotate when moving up to prevent clumping. If u do get clumping, no despair. Just pour hot water in a cup and place the mascara in a ziplock bag and put it in the cup. If this is a time killer, just place it on ur chest (girls, use ur bra for support) while applying ur makeup and apply mascara at the end. The mascara will last u all day! And its Not even hard to remove. I use Andrea eye Q's remover pads. They have several to choose from, I like the mineral oil ones because the moisturize and clean rapidly.
Love it! Its a perfect match to my skin tone. I used before clinique superfit makeup, but that thing didn't hold up at all. My face would get super oily in an hour. Now, MAC gives me a matte finish. A nice matte :D my skin gets oily after several hours later. Then I retouch wit powder. No biggie there. I'm about to purchase the studio fix powder and see how that works.
