Sheer Envy Instant Eye Fix Under Eye Treatment

I didn't like this. The metal applicator is nice and cooling but that's about it. The color is a nice peach color which you would think would help cancel out some of the dark circles under the eyes - it doesn't. Also as a primer it left a weird texture on the skin. When i applied concealer over it... it looks patchy and flakey.... not cute. It didn't matter if i let the primer sit on the skin for a bit or not... .the results were the same - patchy and flakey. I even tried using different amts of this primer as well.... no success.

Sheer Envy Color Correct Cushion Wonder

I have this in the peach shade and i LOVE it. It reminds me a lot of the PF one but far cheaper. It does a great job in cancelling out the dark circles under my eye as well as brightening them!!! I can also use this alone when i'm not wearing any makeup and just want to look more awake. I do have to use a smaller amt of this if i'm not planning on wearing makeup though or it does tend to look a bit obvious. All in all.... i would definitely repurchase. I tried their other version - the one with the metal applicator (that one is more of a primer) and didn't like it at all. I will make a separate review on that.

Sheer Envy Translucent Loose Powder

I was at Walmart and needed a loose powder, so I grabbed this one. In general, this is a cheap brand that sells poor quality makeup. You can find better quality cheaper items at Ulta, from Colourpop, or at Target. This is a very fine powder that goes a little bit everywhere when I open the jar. I'm pretty used to that, so it doesn't bother me (although it's not good breathing in powder - it damages your lungs). It is supposed to be translucent, but it definitively gives me a little bit of a white case, and I'm between an NC20-15 right now. With my yellow undertone this makes my skin look more grey and unhealthy. Would not recommend to anyone who is not pale. Otherwise, it sets my makeup fine, doesn't dry me out or make me oily. Would not repurchase though, because it isn't truly translucent.
