Well I love this mascara. This is how I use mine though. I pull out the mascara wand &wipe it across toilet paper to take off any clumps. I just lightly SWEEP it. Don't rub it in the toilet paper because you'll get nasty pieces stuck in the freakin' wand. DUH. Anyway, I <3 this mascara because it lengthens, thickens, darkens, &holds my curl in place. Definitely my HG.
I truely don't know why everyone hates this product so much. Yes it's runny &the packaging sucks, but the overall formula is great. I have combination skin &wear 225 Buff Biege in the Fragrance Free formula although I prefer the scented cause I love the Noxzema scent :] Overall the trick with this makeup is blending well &finding the right color. There's a reason this makeup has stuck around for so long. It's a classic &the coverage is buildable. I have mild acne &every other makeup has broken me out. This one actually heals my skin &prevents breakouts. Plus, what do you expect for the price? I don't like heavy coverage &I use this with my Revlon Colorstay Blemish Concealer &my Maybelline Mineral Power Translucent Finishing Veil. I love it :]

This is definitely my Go-To foundation . I am absolutely in love . It doesn't make you look like you have ANY makeup on whatsoever , yet it does a very good job of evening out skin tone . I use this with my Revlon Colostay Concealer &my Maybelline Finishing Veil after I put it on . Stayed ALL day &gave me a natural finish . I have combo skin &it didn't leave my skin oily but it didn't dry it out either . I would DEFINITELY recommend this product .

CoverGirl always has very reliable products . I always use this product as a finishing powder for my Revlon ColorStay foundation . It has a nice texture to it &the color goes on Translucent so I don't have to worry about looking orangey or anything . It doesn't make me break out ... If anything it's KEPT my skin clear more than other powders . I love this powder &will continue to use it with my daily makeup routine . I would DEFINITELY recommend it =] .
Powder -Maybelline - Mineral Power Powder Foundation

Honestly, I think this product works WONDERS with a primer. I use the Revlon Beyond Natural Primer &it works amazingly. it lasts long, goes on smoothly, doesn't leave lines, &doesn't dry out your skin. Before I used Mineral Power I used ColorStay Mineral Foundation. I was in love with it, but when I used Mineral Power I loved it more. Mineral Power makes your skin look much more natural with a great luminosity. You just have to know how to apply it. Plus it isn't really complete without the concealer &finishing veil. Those are absolute necessities when using this product. Plus the fact that this product does wonders for my skin. It leaves it soft without any breakout and even without this product on my face, I've noticed my skin looks much more healthy. This is definitely a must have. Before you believe any of these reviews try it out for yourself.
