This is an amazing product for the highlight/concealing trick under your eyes and in the center of the face. I use the Garnier Anti-Dark Circle rollerball right after I get out of the shower and then with this on top, it gives amazing coverage on my undereyes and also adds the sculpted, highlighted look. With this as a highlighter and a great contour color, you have the perfect sculpted face.
This product is AMAZING for clearing up acne scars/hyperpigmentation. I've only used this three times and I can see a major difference in the appearance of my acne scars. They are SO much less visible and I don't feel like I need any type of coverage on a day to day basis. As a moisturizer, I'm not in love with it because I put it on at night and it never sinks into my skin, so as I'm sleeping, it comes off, which makes my skin extremely dry, which makes it peel. It works great for other areas of my face, just not the dry parts. Hopefully as time goes on it will work better as a moisturizer.
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte Lipstick - #1 Nude Beige

I'm obsessed with this lipstick. I bought it on impulse and I'm amazed. It's amazingly pigmented. I only have to apply it to my bottom lip and then rub my lips together. This is a perfect nude that doesn't mute your lips out. These are SO moisturizing and they last a long time on your lips. It's extremely comfortable to wear and for this quality, I got two more and will have no problem repurchasing these when they run out. They also smell pretty good too
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)
queenofchlorine29 1/21/2013 8:31:00 PM
This is my holy grail cleanser. I use this twice a day with my clarisonic Mia. This combo worked wonders at clearing up my (semi minimal) acne and redness. I hate going without this cleanser because its amazing. I never get acne anymore and my face is basically all one color, very minimal redness.
I have normal to dry skin, so I thought that this would be great for me. A lot of the colors are very yellow, so it was hard to find a match for me because I'm pink toned. Even the ones that claimed to be neutral were really yellow. This really emphasized how dry my skin was, which was strange for a product that has the word glow in it. It settles around my nose which isn't flattering at all.
I bought this because of reviews on YouTube. I have normal/dry skin and even with a primer this settles into my pores. I don't have larges pores or anything. It also leaves a powdery look on my face after a while. I'm only going to be able to use this foundation for short term wear because at the end of an 8 hour day, it settles into the pores on my chin and cheeks. It also gathers around my nose. I even use a primer and setting spray...
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse

I love these as a stain. I do find that your natural lip color affects how it looks on you. These are very buildable as well. I have lilac ever after which is pretty nude on me but a little bit purple. I also have pink resistance which is a coral. And which ever one is the hot pink that has pink in the name. It's not as hot of a pink as in the package. If you eat/drink the shine comes off, not the color. Love.
Best mascara ever. I love the makeup forever smoky lash, but its expensive and dries out quickly. This mascara is extremely comparable to the mufe one, but at a fraction of the price. I'm on my 5th or 6th tube of this because I still haven't found anything that lengthens and volumizes as well as this mascara
I love this foundation but I have to be careful when I apply it. Because I have dry/normal skin, if I dont moisturize right before I apply this, it can get very cakey. I also have to use a beauty blender to apply because brushes make it look cakey on my skin. I typically use a beauty blender anyway, so it's not a huge issue. I love the colors for pale skin as well because it can be hard to find light enough shades at the drugstore .
I got this as a sample from a promotion that sephora was doing. I'm not very fond of brushes that are shaped like the brush to this is. It's cone shaped and the widest part of it is too big for bottom lashes, so I got a lot of mascara under my eyes. This formula was EXTREMELY wet so it was pretty clumpy. I think lancome mistook volumizing for clumpy. I'm going to let it dry out a little and if my review changes, I'll take this one down and post another.
so sheer. i bought rose petal because it looked similar to an ulta blush that i am obsessed with. when you try to pick up the product it just moves around, it doesnt go on your finger. i would reccomend checking out the darker colors for a more natural, less pigmented look. also doesnt wear very long either. i suggest NYX cream blushes.
The only reason I would not buy this again is because of the taste/smell and it is a perfect dupe for MAC viva glam gaga 1 which I have so I would not need this lipstick. It really does last a while and it is super pigmented. It is literally the exact same color as viva glam gaga so if you are looking for a cheaper alternative definitely check this out

Mascara -Make Up For Ever - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara
queenofchlorine29 1/3/2012 5:25:00 PM
I am always looking for the best mascara. I finally took the plunge and bought this mascara after reading a lot of reviews. Its totally worth it and I will definitely keep on purchasing this mascara. I think im going to purchase the waterproof version next time because my eyes tend to water while I am laughing and it runs down my face
its too red based to use so close to my eyes with my fair skin tone. it gives my eyes a weird look to them. If i use this shadow i have to put a taupe base under it to take away some of the red/purple undertones. I prefer wet n wild's nutty eyeshadow instead of satin taupe
