Eye Shadow -Maybelline - COLOR TATTOO barely beige
mostlym3 9/10/2012 10:26:00 PM
I already have bad to the bronze, the gold one and tough as taupe and when I heard this LE champagne color was available i looked for it everywhere. Finally found the last one at my local Ulta. I too, think it's a great dupe for bare study and even if it isn't, it's a reasonably priced, great packaging, lovely champagne color with a smooth satin finish. This is one of those eye products that I gradually want to collect all of them. They're so accessible, easy to use and long lasting.
I was really disappointed in this product. While it does color correct my dark eyelids, it has zero primer-power in it -- my shadow creases or completely dissapears and within a couple hours, even the color correction is gone. The formula is also rather dry - and not at all silky. What a let-down.
For the rock bottom price you can find this, it's an excellent regular mask that's mile enough to indulge in a couple times a week. There are micro-beads in the formula, but i just slather it on with minimal scrubbing due to my relatively sensitive, dry skin. It did not irritate my face at all. I noticed my face was smooth, plump and firm after rinsing it off in the shower. The fragrance is very light - almost didn't notice it. It's definitely a great option to have so that you are regularly exfoliating without worrying that you have to conserve your $80 mask. I will definitely repurchase this -- and have it as a staple in my skin care collection.
Shampoo -Dove - Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo

This product is concentrated and super moisturizing. I love the silky texture of my hair when I use this with the coordinating conditioner. This is the best shampoo/conditioner product in drug stores right now to me. I'm replacing my Redken Smooth down with it. LOVE.
Conditioner -Dove - Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner

WOW -- this is the best drug store conditioner I have ever tried -- I've been using it for several weeks now. I pair it with the Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo and really can't believe the results. My hair looks the way I wish it would look after using Redken Smooth down. My hair feels thicker and smooth...stronger almost. I'm really impressed and will have this in regular rotation in my shower from now on. Combine a sale with a coupon and you can get it almost free. Almost too good to be true.
Moisturizers -Murad - Correcting Moisturizer SPF 15

I love the smell and light coverage of this moisturizer. I am using this together with the sensitive skin smoothing serum and my skin has fewer red dry patches and overall my complexion is calmer. It dries to a relatively matte finish. I would repurchase this.
Skincare - Face -Murad - Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum

I am using this in conjunction with the Redness Relief moisturizer and have noticed my skin feels more hydrated and calm. The dry itchy patches of skin have lessened and I'm happy with the results after one month.
I have dry skin, redness, rosacea and I use this a few times a week. It is gentle enough with my sensitive skin - and really exfoliates my skin so completely. A little goes a long way so I can see this tube lasting several months. I've been using it over a month and love the results.
Primer/ Corrector -Hourglass - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

This product makes my foundation absolutely waterproof and my look lasts all day. It's very very light and really weightless. I've tried plenty of primers but none that were this light yet powerful. I buff it in using the large Hourglass brush. Definitely going to repurchase.
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

I think for the price, this is a decent every day bb creme. I bought it on sale at CVS so I got both shades. I've been working with it a couple days and it seems to work best if I spread it on my skin and blend small sections of my face at a time (as opposed to just spreading it on my hands and covering my face like moisturizer). After I apply it I walk away from the mirror for a few minutes letting it set -- I think it looks better after a few minutes. I top it off with a little powder and i'm done. The coverage is light to medium and lasts about 4-6 hours before it needs a touch up. I have dry, sensitive skin with a bit of rosacea. I'd repurchase this. The fragrance is a bit annoying and lingers too long but for less than $10 I can deal.
