Oh man, this little thing ruined my homecoming for me last year, haha! so on normal occasion, this is pretty good. if you have oily lids like me though, this is such a bad idea for days you need your makeup to last for several hours. Generally it doesn't smudge, so that's why you see people saying that it doesn't come off. However if you have oily lids it DOES smudge and it wont come off when you want it to. homecoming rolled around and it was everywhere on my face by the end of the night. i tried to fix it and it wouldn't budge. so sad.
GOOD BUT BAD. omg there's good reviews on here so far which is lovely but freaking deceiving! for some part anyway. i put it on and the coverage is really sheer. at the same time it's seems to give a matte and nice complexion aside from it not covering any of my red blotches...aha. the biggest downfall to this product is that it contains shimmer. WHAT THE HELL, why do they DO this?????? don't they realize that even if you put a TEENY amount of shimmer, it will still appear ALL over your face? from the inside it looks fine from someone's else's view. in my bathroom mirror i see the sparkles. i thought it was going to be alright until i went outside. you could clearly see the sparkles all over your face when the sun hits you. what am i? edward cullen? this is exactly why i returned revlon's photoready foundation. amazing quality if it weren't for the mass shimmer.
I don't understand at all why people keep thinking that this is a dupe for orgasm because it's definitely NOT.in the pan when you first buy it it looks like it might be a dupe but once you get under the first layer it's a deep pink for me. not what i wanted... anyways its still a pretty color. the blush like almost all drugstore blushes does noot have staying power! i use a decent amount but i don't pack my blush on so maybe that's why. you know, i dont want to look like a freaking clown unlike some people i know. lasts maybe an hour tops.
When i first got it, i LOVED IT. and i mean ADORE ADORE ADORE. i thought,. hey the shimmers aren't thaat bad. i couldn't really see them in the bathroom mirror/inside buildings. it kept a lot of oil control!! unlike my other foundations (although i still got a little oil, but it's really OK because i'm naturally a greaseball). in photos, this really does make your skin look flawless. i am in love with the pump. i've been using it for a month now and i'm actually fed up with the shimmery face. when i'm outside you can see full fledge sparkles on my face. i'm already battling with a shimmery blush or eyeshadow getting in different spots on my face!! the foundation adds to it :[ the foundation itself is the most natural and flawless foundation i have tried. it's just that it looks like i dipped my hands in glitter and started wiping my hand on my face. i would get this in a heart beat if revlon decides to make a matte version! and not colorstay because i hated that foundation.
If you're looking for an undereye concealer, this is NOT the concealer for you! it cakes a little and is dry. in the morning i apply it and it looks perfect. in 2 hours my eyes look worse from when i woke up from bed! and then i'll make it even more worse when i try to reapply bcause it cakes. if you're looking for something to cover up your blemishes, then definitely get this! it works wonders for that. i bought two jars so i'll never run out. this little jar has a whole lot of concealer in it. i reckon that this will last me over a year if i use it everyday. but i probably won't so this will stay in my cabinet for a whiiiiile. it's a shame though, because i'm on a hardcore quest to find an undereye concealer and i don't like covering up my pimples with makeup. poop. wrong buy.

[shorter summary] *pro -EXTREMELY natural looking -NO clumps. even if you try, and put on 10 coats. -dries quickly -cheap cheap cheap! *average -length -volume *con -smears if you wipe your eyes (duh? it's not waterproof) -doesn't keep curl oh i like this. very average mascara, though. i thought this mascara was going to be a really low quality product, but since i got this for free, i had to have tried this out! i never really wear mascara because out of all the mascaras i've tried, they would CLUMP, and smear. and i don't really like waterproof mascaras because the forumla tends to be tacky are not able to carry the same effect as its non waterproof. this mascara looks Completely Natural on my lashes. i love how the packaging makes the brush not leave so much mascara left on there (which usually causes clumps). it doesn't make your lashes look shiny and conditioned like some others, but it's mainly because it's a dry formula, so it dries quick! despite that, the mascara still smears if you mess around with your eyes- but you should just take the smudge off with a bit of water on a Q-tip because you can take it off easily. it is buildable and makes my lashes not super long, but long. it really doesn't do much on it's volume. but didn't i mention it looking completely natural?! it looks beautiful on my lashes, anyways. i RECOMMEND to people who already have long lashes, but want an extra oomph. i use this because of my need to re-blacken my lashes after my eyeshadow keeps falling down on my lashes. i'm asian and have really short, straight lashes. this is the only reason i'm not going to get another one of these- doesn't hold a curl that well. after 2 or 3 coats, it reaches a real good length, but what good is it if it doesn't keep my curl? it's straight long lashes!

I really love this foundation. i am 14 and love how this looks on my skin. it looks natural and gives me a kind of pretty pinkish, dewy flush. this has spf 25 which i LOVE. the other foundations i have tried are much too heavy and cake on my face. i don't need a lot of coverage, but wish to even out my skin. this does it perfectly! i run a lot at school because of my sport and Colorstay does not melt away..unless i smear it on my shirt or something. this is pretty water resistant too. when trying to wash my face, it's kinda neat to see that the water i splash on my face just bounce off (i actually think it perks it up and makes it look better). i just add my soap and it comes right off, though. i highly recommend to people around my age..honestly you guys cake stuff on your face and it looks HORRIBLE! so buy this :D oh, and even though this product doesn't help lessen my acne..(duh, it's makeup) it hasn't broken me out. my friend also has this! and she looked even better after our workout! :]
This is a very well cleanser and a mask. it gets rid of my acne like no other. maybe even too well. I purchased this a year ago when the prices were lower. it raised up! damn. well it's worth it. i had ugly acne, everywhere. blackheads severely around my nose and big bumpy acne on my forehead. i used this and got results in a week. i somehow lost the product and bought other cleansers from neutrogena (the Deep Clean line). i was convinced these were good too because by then i actually forgot how good this pore cleanser was. i had acne where i never had them- on my cheeks and my chin! and blackheads on my nose were reappearing. what was happening!? is it just my makeup? recently i found my pore cleanser mask again. wow, a whole year later! i opened it and the product dried around the opening. i washed the cap and the cream was still like it was before, when i bought it. i used it and honestly, the little acne bumps on my cheeks disappeared RIGHT after cleansing. not a Get results the following day!, but a 5 minute cleansing! oh by the way. it freaking Burned my face that night. i endured it, but got good results, haha. the second time i used it, it burned a little, and the third time- none at all. BUT! there have always and forever will be that very cool, refreshing feel to it afterwards. it's almost too strong for me (not smell). but i have great results! i am buying again. i hope they don't discontinue this...

When i bought it i remember me liking it...however it was my first mascara. maybe it was good then. i hear that mascaras "get bad" after a couple months. mine smells funky too. and when i use it now it is HORRIBLY clumpy and won't lengthen. it does make them thick though. too bad that thick lashes are not sexy when its filled with clumps. i'm sure you've seen people with those lashes from time to time. ick. it's also very hard to take off if you don't have a eye makeup remover. well honestly, i don't disbelieve the people who swear it looks so fabulous on them, but mine doesn't look good on me at all.
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Mineral Face Powder

I got this in a shade lighter than my own because it was winter. When i got it, i looked at the brush, put some in the powder and immediately threw away the brush. i recommend you do the same if you get this.It was a little too light for my skin color, but later it became my exact shade. the powder is in a zebra or mosaic arrangement of two colors. look at the darker color because it is the only one you'll be getting in a few months because the product will be blended out and the lighter color will be gone. the product is very light weighted and i really love it. the coverage is nice but wont cover the heavy discoloration on the bridge of my nose, so i'm looking for a concealer. ALSO! no acne!!! i'm very happy about this because all of the foundation i bought before this clog my pores :[ i will get this again.
