It does not give full coverage but does help! I would say this is a good tinted moisturizer that does hide imperfections a little bit. To get a perfected look, take a pea sized amount on the back of your hand and get a little on your finger. Next, dab your anywhere on your face with your finger. Keep doing this until full face is covered. You may need more than a pea sized amount based off of the amount of imperfections you have. DO NOT RUB IN LIKE A MOISTURIZER!!! The dabbing gives A LOT better coverage and a much better overall look! I would totally recommend this! Plus it's super cheap and easy to travel with!
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Original SPF 15 Foundation

This product is great! To get started i will tell you a bit about me: I have natural RED hair! No it is not the usual strawberry blonde to orange. It is red. My hair contains blonde, red, orange, brown and any color in between strands of hair. With that red hair I actually have fair to medium skin (I know crazy right!). So I am a redhead with not chalk white skin so it is amazingly hard to find the right product that goes great with my complexion. Well this product did the trick! gives me the perfect color while covering!!! Yay! my only complaint is that it can sometimes give a powdery look. Also you do have to put quite a bit on to get full coverage! Overall it is a WONDERFUL product!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!! I just got it for Christmas but have wanted it forever! The waiting has paid off! I totally recommend it! I know that all the shades are perfect for so many looks! Although I do not like the tutorial cards ( I just don't like the finished look) I LOVE how it looks after I experiment a little! My only problem is it is a bit pricey for me ($36) but I think it is the perfect item to splurge on! If you want a new, modern take on a natural eye this is the PERFECT pallet for you!
So I tried this out thinking it would be amazing... I'm immediately proven wrong. I washed it right off!!!! It left my skin feeling SO oily i couldn't deal with it! I have dry skin (at the moment) and thought this was the solution. Ohhh no it isn't!!!! I have tried it a few more times and still hate it! Unless you get this as a free gift from a beauty store (like i did) DO NOT waste your money on it!!!! At least try it out first!!!!

I love using this when I'm giving makeovers to my friends and sisters! I knew this product wasn't for me when i bought it given my pale skin with red hair. Even though it looks HORRIBLE on me I LOVE using this product on anyone else who can pull off the black eyeliner! It is very easy to apply with a nice even look!

I do really like this product! There is no hassle getting make up off which I LOVE! It's aslso super cheap! The only thing I don't like is that it says "Oil Free" but it feels super oily :(
I love this product for on my body AND on my face! It leaves you with a nice smooth fresh feeling! I could not live without this stuff!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had this hair tool since it came out! I absolutely love it! It did take a few tries to get the PERFECT look but now that I have I am in heaven every time I use it! All my friends come over and we start playing around with each others hair with it and now I've got all my friends hooked! It really does work on every hair type and totally worth the money!!!!
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Luscious Liquid Lipstick - ALL
struby09 12/16/2012 12:23:00 PM
I love this product and it is only $1! it is a bit sticky but really I can't complain. I use the Pink Lemonade and it gives you just the right amount of gloss and pigment I like! Why spend $30 dollars on a gloss when you can spend $1 and have the same effect!
I used this product for a while (before I knew just about everything in the make- up world) and thought it was ok. Once I tried other foundations I stopped using it. I recently tried it again, now having much more experience with makeup. OMG!!!! I HATED it! Seriously one of the worst foundations I have ever used! It creates breakouts and does NOT cover evenly what so ever! Also the packaging is horrible because it takes like 10 min. just to get some out! please... Please... PLEASE don't even waste your $6 on this product. I love CG but NOT this!!!!
This is by far my favorite drugstore concealer. It is light and blends in without the cakey feeling! A lot comes in the tube and the applicator brush is GREAT! Another ting is that it is super cheap, too! I really don't have any complaints for this product especially since it is a cheap drugstore brand!
I do like this product IF i have other products to go along with it. I have to use the FIT me concealer and Mabelline's BB cream with it to get the look I want. The product alone does make you look either shimmery or dry and powdery (depends on the skin type you have and since I have combination skin I get both effects). The packaging is nice and small with a compartment for the applicator with a mirror. Great to throw in your purse! Another thing is it CHEAP so if you do dislike the product not much of your money was wasted!
I ALWAYS buy CG LashBlastVolume! This was my first mascara I EVER bought and no time soon am I switching. Yes, I have tried other mascaras. The super expensive to the really cheap ones and I still liked my CG mascara a lot better! I don't know how much volume it gives but it does give length if you but 2-3 coats on! This is definitely is the mascara you want for a natural look. I would totally recommend you try it out (plus its super cheap!).

SO BELOW IS TWO REVIEWS I WROTE. ONE WAS RIGHT AFTER I BOUGHT THE PRODUCT, ONE WEEKS AFTERWARDS. OVERALL IMPRESSION: DO NOT BUY!!!! THE SECOND ONE IS A MUCH DIFFERENT THAN THE FIRST BUT MUCH MORE ACCURATE! I just purchased this yesterday and tried it the second I got home! I had to set it with a pressed powder on top just to get it even. Once I got it all perfected I loved the look! Throughout the day yesterday my face started to itch a bit but nothing I couldn't handle. When I woke up this morning I woke up with a late pimple which I am almost sure is because of the product! Anyways I am going to try it throughout the week and see how I feel about it! Pros & Cons: + gave me a great look afterward +cheap +easy to travel with -Made my face itchy -most likely caused acne -took a while to get the look i wanted Follow up: So I have used it a bit now and here is the results: +cheap +easy to travel with -made me break- out (a lot) -made my face itchy -made me look oily mid- day -had to re- apply by 1/4 way through the school day -could NOT use without another product IF YOU WANT A CHEAP BB CREAM USE COVERGIRL'S IT WORKS SOOO MUCH BETTER!
