I really really like this, cuts blow dry time, doesnt feel like anything, but my hair feels soft and controlled.... i have thick wavy hair this makes me barely have to straighten my hair.
I really like this foundation!!! I don't know why the bad reviews. I think most foundations I buy are around the price point, so I think you get what you pay for. I don't want to break out I want to look natural and I want coverage. This foundation does all that. YES i can buy MAC for about 12 dollars less, but I Have never found a good match and in some I am NC, and for Studio Fix, I am NW so I have to always wonder. This I wear Syracuse, which I thought would be way too dark for my NC30 skin, but it is perfect..??? THe yellow undertones aren't too much but make it look natural. I will buy this again. The pump I was given one from the sample bottles, but I still haven't used it, I like to use a little on the back of my hand warm up the foundation and press into my skin. IT covers, but doesn't at all look cakey. I don't use a brush, it doesn't work with this. I set with a bronzer and I am good.. All day!!! I say try it. Expensive, maybe but no compared to anything with quality...:)
Powder -Wet 'n' Wild - Ultimate Minerals Powder Foundation in Stage Light
samanthaes 12/7/2009 12:24:00 AM
I honestly am shocked.. I have tried just about every mineral foundation out there. BM is awful with color selection for me, I like Laura Mercier although I found the coverage very sheer, Jane Iridale was way to heavy feeling for me and then I found this. I put my concealer on first for my undereyes and anything else that needs xtra concealing and then this, I wore it 6 hours no streaking nothing still looked good and the color is right on... i am usually NC25 in MAC and the light shade in this is PERFECT... I honestly don't have any complaints...
I did love the look of this foundation when it was first put on, however within about 30 minutes i got greasy and then as the day wore on just greasier and greasier. This foundation is one of those that I couldn't wait to get home and take off and when I have that it is over. This feels greasy on your skin, and it transfers everywhere. I was looking for to liking this but I am sticking with tient innocence from chanel.
Foundations -LORAC - Natural Performance Foundation
samanthaes 11/30/2008 12:26:00 AM
I really like this foundation. One it feels good on my skin, I hate feeling like or looking like I have aLOT of makeup on. I can't wear bare escentuals as it burns and irritates my skin so this was reccommended to me as it has no oil,is paraben free. Anyway this gives good coverage and is very buildable which i like to I don't have alot where I don't need it. I LOVE the bottle it is great... This stays on my combination skin very well and no need for touchups. I have very acne prone skin and after a month of using have had no problems. I also like a foundation that is transfer resisitant and have had no problems with that either.
This is my HG!!! I have been looking for 2 years straight to find a foundation, that gave me good coverage, that could even my skintone without looking like I had tons of makeup on and that was easy and fast to apply. I tried Bare minerals at least 5 times, and then onto prescriptives mineral makeup, then jane iridale and smashbox.. Avon everything from liquid to cream to powder. This stuff plain works.. I can make it look dewey, or just matte.. never looks cakey and doesn't look like I have makeup on.. Thank you .. I am using NW25 and it matches my olive golden skin so welll, it just brightens my skin and evens out my melasma uneven skin tone..:) will repurchase and repurchase...
Eye Shadow -Bare Escentuals - Tutorials Rocker Eye
samanthaes 9/11/2008 11:54:00 PM
I love this tutorial... I don't even know if I use it the way the suggest but it is great.!!! I have tried almost all of the tutorials and never liked any of them until this.. MY brown eyes pop!!! I think that I am still a little clumsy with the liner but ill get there.. Just cant get that perfect consistency down. I don't feel the price is bad as the lady told me that the brush itself is over 20 dollars.. I would absolutley buy this again!!!:)
I really really love this foundation.... I have tried EVERYTHING... I break out with MAC, and either look like a ghost or a orange yuck... hated Mary kay, wore revlon for years, BE, all of it, and this is amazing, it melts just melts into my skin, there is not much evidence I am wearing anything. At first I did have trouble with this staying so the lady suggested loose powder instead of pressed, and VIOLA.. all day coverage, no oiliness, no breakouts.. I LOVE IT.. i will repurchase. I am wearing stay beige. Only thing I would change is the package.. I don't really like the bottle. but i will get over it...:)
I wanted to like this... I really did.. But this is what I felt about it it felt like a stain, of some sort like I couldn't move it once I got in on my face, It stained my hands and it just stayed where I put it so I keep squeezing more and trying to figure out to make it even throughout my face. DId it cover i don't know because as the day wore on I splotches of color that wasn't the same color I had put on that morning.. UNFORTUNatley..NOT for me... The price however if it had worked was descent...:)
Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 6 for Combination/Oily Skin
samanthaes 11/14/2007 11:47:00 PM
Ok.. So what do I love about this product, that it covers everything, that it feels light once applied and dry and sometimes I get a little scared cuz it feels a bit heavy but once I blend it I feel marvelous.. IT STAYS.. All day .. I don't break out with this like I do with MAC. I use this in Sand and it is perfect, in MAC I am NC30. The price is good, I just saw it at walmart for buy one get one free making this less than 5.00 a bottle... Only thing I am not overly happy with is the smell it is a bit strong, but I guess you must give a little...:)
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner
samanthaes 11/9/2007 10:50:00 PM
I love this product.. Ok why.. It is easy to apply (not necessarly with the brush provided)... But I have the Bobbi Brown eyeliner brush.. Ok, so I got the buy one get one free and got the colors black, which is very very true to black, and eggplant, so pretty.. I found that this product not only stays but is true to color and extremly close to the quality of MAC and Bobbi Brown gel liners...:).. But with a deal that cannot be matched.. I suggest looking for the deal and going for it... LOVE IT
I really believe in a product doing what it says.. THIS does, it stays true all day, no difference no tell tell lines, just pure I don't know.. It looks like my skin, feels good and I love how it doesn't come off, this foundation doesn't even come off on the phone like others do.. yes it is a little expensive but after trying sooo many foundations and not being happy I will gladly pay a bit extra. If you want to look the exact way you did the time you put on the makeup get this, you will not be upset..
The best eyeliner I have ever used. The only thing I could change about this is to make it BOLDER just a little more oomph with the brown, not black.. but in between. But it stays and stays and stays, looks amazing and is so easy to apply. I Love it.. will never use any other eyeliner again...:)
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)
samanthaes 10/7/2007 11:11:00 PM
I love this cleanser. I get it when it is the Anniversery sale at Nodstroms, in June. this cleanser gets all traces of makeup off without any drying to my skin. I love the smell and the convienence. With the sale I got 32 ounces for 30.00.. I can't believe it either, if it runs out before the next sale I will get it on QVC. I love it..:)
Originally I gave this a bad review, But then THe light hit me.. something wonderful happened, I spoke with a MAC MA and they explained to me that I was 1. Wearing the wrong color, and 2. That i would be better off applying an oil absorbing lotion to help as well.. Did it help.. YES!!! I now I have coverage I can count on.. I was using a warm shade which didn't cover correctly but when I went to NC25 I needed less foundation and looked better than ever.. I will not switch from this.. I look even covered and I find that as many times as I returned this product and they still helped me.. I WILLLLL go back...!! Try try and try again. :::::: update::::::: after wearing this for a month, I broke out sooo bad i am on a terrible kick to fix it....:(.. will never repurchase.. this ever.
