This stuff is great. Definitely worth the price! I use this to set my concealer & I love it. Cannot live without it :) I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Its a bit pricey but worth it trust me! & I love how you barely need to use any because a little bit goes a long way
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I really like this stuff when I first got it. The color match was perfect for me. But then I tried it & noticed that after a couple hours it completely wears off. Which is a BUMMER.:( I can't really complain because I bought this on sale for $8.99 & I still use this on days where I want light coverage but I just wish it had better staying power then it would be perfect! It even wears off when its set with a finishing powder. :( Bummerrr. Love the coverage, & finish so I'm not going to give a terrible rating but just wish it lasted longer.
I bought this stuff because I was looking for a medium to full coverage foundation that would last ALL DAY. At first, I liked the coverage.. it brightened my skin up a lot.. & I loved how it looked. I'm just going to list the pros & cons. PROS~ *Lasts a REALLY long time. Doesn't rub off AT ALL. *Brightens skin *Has medium coverage but can be built up to full *Doesn't even rub off when it's humid out and trust me it gets humid in Florida. CONS~ :( *Dries too quickly & I can't seem to blend it quick enough *Smells horrible! I normally wouldn't smell my foundation but the scent it so strong you cant help but smell it when it's applied to your face. *Made my extremely sensitive skin break out after using it for a few days :( which is a bummer because I really enjoyed the coverage of this foundation *The price.. it's a bit too pricey for a drugstore foundation. This is just based on MY opinion for my skin. I have very sensitive, dry to combo skin & it's so hard to find anything that doesn't irritate it! I would recommend this for someone with more oily skin that doesn't have sensitive skin or acne prone!
Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Length Fiber Extensions

I bought this foundation because I was using Maybellines Define a Lash Volume & I thought I'd try something different for a change. I have to say that I was impressed. I have fairly thick long lashes naturally and they're naturally dark so I was curious on how this would look on me. It definitely adds length & volume & I got it for a good price.. $8.99 at Walgreens. Can't beat that! I wasn't impressed by the packaging, it looks a bit cheap, & the brush can be a bit painful if you get it too close to your eye so be careful! My suggestions would be to use an eyelash curler first before applying this mascara and once it dries lightly brush your fingers under my lashes to seperate any clumping! This isn't the BEST mascara I've ever used, but for the price, it's pretty good.. in my honest opinion. I would definitely buy again, because it is inexpensive & does add some length!
First off, I was given this foundation from my sister because she tried it a couple of times and she has extremely oily skin and this just wasn't working for her! While, I, on the other hand, have dry, sensitive skin, which tends to get a tad oily in my t zone in the summer months. I tried this stuff and at first, I wasn't impressed. I felt that it didn't have much coverage, & at that time my face was a little broken out, a few breakouts here & there, & this didn't offer enough coverage. But recently I started applying this with a foundation brush, (Eco Tools Foundation Brush) & it looks so much better! The coverage is buildable which I love!! I also love that this is hydrating but not too much, I still have to apply moisturizer before I apply this because I don't want to accentuate dry patches on my face. Although I love this stuff.. I wouldn't rate it as GREAT.. only good because it does wear throughout the day & you have to touch up every couple of hours which I don't mind doing. But it is a great product! I bought it for $9.99 at Walgreens but I know that you can get it on sale for even less for people who are on a budget & don't want to spend a ton of money on foundation. Right now though, this is my daily foundation, I have been using it for a few months now & I honestly haven't found anything better.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Romantic
xxdiorangel 6/18/2012 6:30:00 PM
I picked this up at my local Walgreens for buy one for $8.99 get one 50% off. I've personally never used a lip stain balm before so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I'm a blonde with green eyes and medium skin tone so I'm a huge fan of red lips. I picked this up because I've been searching for so long for a red lip product that would last for more than just an hour. And I've FINALLY found it ! What I really like about this product is that it has a minty scent to it without having a huge mint sensation on the lips. Although I wouldn't mind that :) It goes on very beautifully, glossy, shiny and looks great! Although the gloss wears off within an hour or so , the tint is still there which I love ! I would definitely purchase again! I'm completely in love with this stuff and the price is outstanding! Affordable & great quality. :D
