It looks like death, and it's drying. The only way I can wear it is when I swipe pink gloss over it. It think it looked better when they put it on me at the counter, but I'm still not sure what I was thinking.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

This powder leaves your skin matte and polished, and not as flat as other matte powders. Also, it lasts! I tap it on my nose and forehead after my mineral foundation. I will definitely keep buying it.
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - Latisse Lash Growth Drops

It works. Longer, darker, and more curled lashes that look almost fake with mascara. My mom asked me if I was wearing false eyelashes. Although it says not to, I've used it on my lower lashline and the ends of my eyebrows with milder but pleasant results (I had to trim one of my lower lashes, it got that long). I'm nearing the end of my first bottle of Latisse and am wondering if I should go for the generic brand instead. Which do you recommend, ladies? I can't plunk down all that cash again. Definitely use a thin eyeliner brush and wash often. The plastic applicators that come in the (excessive) packaging soak up and waste the drops.
A nice set. The colors aren't too outrageous, and they really do complement brown eyes. I especially like the dual ended eye/brow highlighter which really works to highlight the dark recesses of the inner corners and the top of the browbone. The mascara doesn't do much in terms of volume, length, or curl, but the color is nice. I apply it after my regular mascara.
I'm glad a sampled this before I bought it. Pros: Nice texture Minimized pores on my cheeks Cons: Not buildable (starts to gather and roll up) No coverage This would probably work well for someone with already even skin tone and zero blemishes who just wants a nice finish on the skin. I have mild hyperpigmentation and ruddiness so I'll stick to EDM.
i've had the best luck with this mascara--and i've tried many. defines, lifts, lengthens, and thickens my otherwise straight unextraordinary lashes. (i do use an eyelash curler before and sometimes after, i know, it's bad) works for me. worth a try for the price.
eh no volume here doesn't clump, but doesn't build either
Orgasm looks pretty on my light/medium beige skin. I can imagine it would look good on almost any skin tone. It looks great in winter, and I'm sure it'll look great come summer. It gives me a seamless believable flush, and a little goes a long way which is great considering the price. Laguna is a true brown bronzer, no orange here. Again, a little goes a long way. My only complaint is that the outer packaging material gets dirty-looking so quickly.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Blush- Naive [DISCONTINUED]

Gives a fresh healthy flush on my medium beige skin. Use an actual blush brush and stipple--don't sweep--it on.
Got rid of the bumps on the backs of my thighs. Worth it.
Leaves skin more balanced and has seriously soothed my combination oily/flaky/bumpy skin. I leave mine on for hours at a time.

This concealer is great for medium beige tones. Creamy consistency and great coverage for undereye circles, redness around the nose, blemishes, etc.

Soft brush ideal for foundation application or concealer. Doesn't shed too much.
oooh i love email me! i wear neutral medium beige and this shows up as a natural flush. and it's so light i can regulate how much i want. the description threw me off at first (brown?) but it's beautiful. A neutral pink with the slightest brown/beige undertone.
