I have always used nose strips for my blackheads and that has not always been a pleasant experience. With nose strips, my nose was itchy, red, and dry after the initial use. After years of usage, I have notice enlarged pores and oilier complexion. If there is a miracle product, the Mario Badescu silver powder is the one. The silver powder reduced the appearance and amount of the blackheads. The main ingredient in this product, calcium carbonate, absorbed the oil and reduced breakouts of blackheads on my face. I highly recommend this product for those who have never had a clean pored nose.
This face wash seems like it does not do anything when you wash your face. This is a non foaming cleanser that cleans as well as foaming cleansers do. Foaming cleansers have chemicals/ingredients that may be damaging to your skin. I love the hygienic packaging and the non offensive scent of this product. I do not miss my super foamy cleansers one bit. I highly recommend this product, because I have noticed decreased size of pores and amount of blackheads.
Beautiful coral pink blush with shimmer. I love the glowing and healthy effect this gives. The shimmer can be a bit too much at times, but this is a great blush for dull complexion days.
Ehh... This mascara may not run, but it flaked here in Florida summer. The price is not very friendly and I would not repurchase. It holds curls just a little bit and give a little bit of volume, but that's about it. FLAKE city. :(
This stain gives a nice flush of color that lasts may be 6 hours or so for me. I like the red, because it complements my NC25 skin. I know this product is very expensive, but I have not met any more affordable products as good as the Benetint. Benetint lasts on your lips longer than any other, the color is absolutely flattering, and it goes on your lips very naturally and evenly. Tints are awesome, but you have to find a right product and this is it!
Very doll-like baby pink blusher. I love how it is so pigmented, but it can be very powdery at times. I love the color, which reminds me of Japanese makeup (gyaru). I would highly recommend if you have fair skin (Don't go past NC30) or it will look too ashy. It doesn't have the best staying power, so think before you use it.
Wow! Finally a lip treatment and color that actually works together :) I love baby lips. They add medium amount of color and make you look natural. They are not like matte lipsticks, which brings out the ugly side of your lips. My boyfriend loves the cherry one's smell.
Wow, finally a drugstore non-waterproof mascara that holds my stubborn asian lashes. If you are looking for curled and thick lashes, then this mascara is a must!
Beautiful foundation. Its coverage is around medium coverage. I love the light reflecting materials in this foundation. No, that does not mean this foundation is shimmery. This foundation makes your skin look like glowing from within. Color matching is a bit tricky, but you should have a MA helping you. It tends to make my nose oily a bit midday, but that's no problem. I will just use my MAC blot powder :)
Revlon colorstay is way too overhyped in my opinion. The foundation does not have a pump. Ew! I hope revlon adds a pump, which will make the whole process of applying foundation more sanitary and less messy. Is it just me or does this foundation smell like paint you would put on the wall? I just get insane thoughts like this foundation will irritate my skin, because of its strong scent. I would say this is about medium to full coverage depending on how you apply it. However, I don't think anyone needs a mask like full coverage that this foundation provides. I would not repurchase and would warn everyone to stay away from this foundation!
A great multi-purpose brush. I use it for my mac blot powder, picks up just the perfect amount. It is soft, but not too soft, which I absolutely love. It is only $1 at Target and dries overnight even thought it's incredibly dense. I know of other people who use this as a blush brush or foundation brush. This is a must have!!!
Takes forever to dry!!! I am too impatient to wait for it to dry. I stopped using it and moved on to more less densely packed brush.
Yes, all the raves on Youtube is partially true. This palette is great for day and night and also contains a brush or an eyeliner (older version). Great color selection with very soft velvety mostly shimmer colors. I believe there are only two matte colors and I wish there are more matte color selection in Urban Decay palettes. The texture is so soft and velvety that I pick up way too much eyeshadow with one stroke with a brush or a finger. I tap it off, but I still get way too much fallout on my face. I would not really mind if it was matte fallouts, but most of the eyeshadows are very shimmery. I usually just end up using the matte eyeshadows in the palette due to its excessive fallout issue. I would not repurchase the palette, but maybe I will repurchase the matte shadows individually.
I used Light/Medium bisque color. The concealer is very good at color correcting dark circles since it is a salmony colored concealer. When you first put it on, it looks flawless, dewy, and color correcting. I loved it! However, it settles into fine lines and creases on me after one to two hours of wear. Its creamy consistency is very moisturizing, but it won't last all day on you.
