Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Plus
sgbabe 9/9/2009 8:47:00 PM
I wanted to check out the buzz on this product! I've never used MAC face products (foundations, powders, etc.) so this was my first one! First of all, the coverage was not that great... The skin finish is very lightweight, but it barely did anything to my face =( Second, my face got oilier! Very sad about the outcome of this product. Now I know never to use MAC foundations and powders,etc!
Pressed Powders -Clinique - Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder

Very cute packaging but with my skin, all I have to say is: Never Again Clinique products!
These things are so ingenious! Seriously, whoever thought of them is worth worshipping. I love that the brush is fine and the colors are so pigmented! The long thing that I dislike about these is that they're actually kinda hard to use lol. The brush is a fine, but still could still be a little smaller and the color comes off the brush in globs.
In the pan it looked beautiful, even the swatch was very pretty. On my eyelids, it gave me 0 color payoff. I especially wanted to try to place this over a sheer color to kind of give it a silvery glitter effect, but it gave me nothing =(
Tinted Moisturizer -MAC - Studio Moisture Tint SPF15

Woo I LOVE this product! I was a little scared to try it though, because I bought this product, then looked at the review on here and one girl said that it made her oily skin look worse.... BUT I did try it and it gave me a soft, matte finish and my face remains oil free throughout most of the day! This has now become one of my staples! =)
Ohh gosh. I was so excited when I bought this l/g! I thought the color was going to be kinda neutral with a hint of pink. I was very wrong. This color is extremely pink on my pigmented lips! I wouldn't buy this color again, but I would definitely by the rest of the round lipglosses because they are amazing! They don't feel like Dazzleglass or Cremesheen, but they do have the same color payoff as most of the MAC glosses
I hate Pro Activ, I really do. It did absolutely NOTHING to my face beside make it look like the bottom of a french fries bag. I used this product for 3 months, and it barely worked for me.
Sumptuous olive was one of the first e/s I bought from MAC! Very highly recommended by the MUA's working there. I loved it at first, but after a bit of wearing it, I began to realize that it kinda blended in with my skin tone.... The color is beautiful, I guess just not on my skin tone =(
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - very sexy lip gloss - secret

I feel in love with this color once I tried it on! It's very nude on my lips with a hint of orangish mauve to it! The only reason why I probably would not buy this product again is because of the packaging! They give you live long glorious tube of lip gloss and this teeny tiny little brush applicator that BARELY fits into the tube and the bristles get all kinds of messed up leaving you with a ton of lipgloss and a brush that reminds me of Edward Scissorhands' hair....
Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Douse Me With Diamonds Wet Dry Shadow

I bought one of these little e/s pots when VS was having their Semi-annual and it was super cheap! The colors in the pots were so pretty as they all contained so much sparkle! I first tried it on dry to test out the product--> There was A LOT of fall out and I ended up with an eye full of glitter =( Also, the silver glitter managed to stay on my eyelashes, which absolutely drove me crazy! The color was very sheer and it made my eyelids feel flaky. Then I tried it on wet! I loved the way the it looked on me because it was a brighter shade of pic with a considerably less amount of sparkle to it! BUT I felt as though it was weighing down my eyelid =( Overall, unfortunately I don't think I'll be buying any more e/s from this line...
I expected this to be a cheap (quality wise) eye shadow palette that had sheer color and would fade easily... BUT thankfully, I was wrong! These Wet n Wild palette really do give you the eyeshadow color that is displayed! They are SUPER soft, which I love because some eyeshadow can be drying and can make my eyeshadow look flaky, but this particular e/s palette looked moist and supple on my skin! I love that there are so many colors in one little palette! You could pretty much survive off one palette for a good couple of months! Overall a great product and I am definitely going to invest in other colors!
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - Heartbreaker Cosmetics - Love Junkies

This is a beautiful color! I love Heartbreaker Cosmetics in general, especially because the color names are so fun! I'm just sad that I chose to buy a sample instead of the entire product and I got a tiny baggy with just a pinch of makeup =(
It was really hard for me to actually like this color. I bought this color because I was in love with the teal, but I ended up neglecting it! I forgot all about it for awhile, then one day when looking for a highlight color, I came across this little duo! The creamish yellow color is a great highlighter for me because it is neutral, yet it still has light refletive properties! It makes blending out my crease so much easier and it looks so much better. As for the teal color---> I just find the color "teal" hard to wear, without having my make up wear me!
The was such a pretty color in the bottle, but sadly, to achieve that desired color, one must LAYER THIS BAD BOY ON! And when I say layer, I mean a good 5-6 coats! It is a very very pretty color, don't get me wrong, it's just too much of a hassle to get the look that I was intent on getting!
Uhhh what a let down. I was an avid Rimmel mascara customer until I decided to try Lash Flirt. I was expecting it to be similar to Glam Lash or better than Sexy Curves, but I was horribly wrong. This mascara did not, even for two minutes, hold my lashes up and it was such a sheer black even though the color is supposed to be "kohl black". I ended up layering this bad boy on 5 time to barely get my desired look. Please don't waste your money or time!
