Primer/ Corrector -Estee Lauder - Matte Perfecting Primer
seajay23 4/27/2013 1:55:00 PM
Wow, I've only tried two other primers, urban decay and victoria's secret. Both made my already oily skin, even worse. I used this primer with revlon's nearly naked, (which isn't even marketed as being matte finish) and I only had to blot about 3x in a 10 hour work day. My makeup lasted longer than with my usual MUFE mat velvet....I am assuming this will work wonderful with MUFE mat velvet, however I got it with the intention of being able to buy cheaper foundations, =D I'm going to test this with revlon colorstay as well, I've never worn the foundation before, but Hope it works wel together!
Moisturizers -Merlot - Moonlight Radiance Natural Grape Seed Night Cream

I love this! One day when I couldn't find my daytime moisturizer I threw this on, and realized after about a week of doing that my skin looked radiant! perhaps I will buy the matching day cream! It is super moisturizing, totally worth the 14$ at walgreens!
I purchased a sample of this from ebay, because I've always been curious about it. Wow, let me tell you...I absolutely ADORE this perfume! It is my all time favorite! I NEVER receive compliments on a perfume, yet I get compliments wearing this perfume all the time! I don't think it's something everyone would like but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
I was looking for a blush precisely this shade. It lasts all day long on my oily skin! I simply love it. It makes it look as though my makeup has stayed fresh all day long! I wear it with makeup forever's matte velvet, and their hd finishing powder and for someone who usually has cheaper makeups last around 2-4 hours, this blush really keeps me looking fresh all day! The color isn't too vibrant at all..It's one of my favorites by far. I would totally repurchase :)
I picked this up because it was cheap and I needed a quick fix mascara. I honestly really disliked it at first! It just made my thin lashes merely long and nothing really happened. I continued to use it and it I guess it just grew on me. Didn't notice any growth, but it is fine for everyday use! I'd totally purchase again if on a tight budget and if I am in between mascaras :)
Foundations -Cover Girl - Covergirl and Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 Foundation

This foundation was not what I expected. It claims to immediately perfect your skin tone. When I apply it, It's like I applied nothing at all, all the redness is there and it doesn't last AT ALL by the end of an 8 hour work day you may as well not have bothered, and then you're left with oily skin. I wish I could return this product, and I won't repurchase. I'm thinking I'm done with drugstore foundations! They just aren't made for those of us with super oily skin.
Styling Products -TiGi - Bed Head Control Freak Serum

I bought this product forever ago and just recently started using it again. I LOVE it. I have VERY long fine, yet thick hair ( fine texture but TONS of it) it's wavy, not too frizzy. I put this in after I wash, then blow dry and almost don't even need to straighten. Makes my hair very soft. I love it
One day I had lost my moisturizer and I knew my grandmother had this, she lives right across the way. So I asked if I could use hers...I fell in love. It kept my make up on ALL Day and that was my deep cleaning day. for the house. I haven't had any breakouts yet, but I really hope they stay at bay. Love this stuff! Only draw back is no spf.
It provides lovely volume. However, IT FLAKES. So I'll probably use this up, but that's about it.
WOW. I have found an amazing CHEAP mascara that I LOVE. I am SO glad I bought this! I noticed right away how insanely awesome it is: )
Does nothing but add color to my eyelashes. I curled before I applied, and I have naturally curved up eyelashes so I noticed nothing but I had some more pigment added to my eyelashes. tried to return product but receipt was smudged : (
WOW. So This product is SO wet. One huge downside, however I had NO idea my eyelashes could look so long. I LOVE THAT! Too bad it's super messy, and not the best for volume. However, I LOVE fake looking lashes , screw the natural look : D

Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I got a sample of this from walgreens and I must say I LOVE IT. I have SUPER SUPER oily skin, and usually get shiny within the first 30 minutes. I've had this on for hours with zero shine. !
Shampoo -Pantene - Pantene Restoratives Anti-Breakage Shampoo

I have to say, this product is a god send. I have SUPER oily hair, and I can go 2 days without washing when I use this. I love it. I have noticed, A LOT less little breakage pieces on my shirts. But I also use an anti breakage serum. Ladies, breakage and shedding are very different. Shedding is normal, and doesn't prevent your hair from growing. Breakage, is from the actual length of your hair...like the little pieces that fall from the ends of your locks. I want my hair to grow LONG so I am taking all measures to avoid breakage. Love the clean feeling I get from this stufF!
