Mineral Pressed Powder
5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 days ago

This is a great powder, especially if you are on a budget (this is only $4). I like that the Fair shade is very neutral toned, and really does not alter my foundation/skin color (I'm a NW20), but sets my foundation really well, adding a smooth matte finish that is not overly drying. I have combination skin, and this keeps oil at bay in my t-zone, but does not over-dry the rest of my skin. The only con, is that the bulky, split pan packaging is annoying to use on the go (flipping back and forth from the powder to the mirror underneath). However, for just setting your makeup at home (which is how I use it), this works beautifully! BTW, I purchased mine at Dollar General, but it's also sold at Family Dollar stores. I would repurchase!

I would not recommend this to anyone. Number one ingredient is mineral oil. So disgusting!! That's what smells "kinda like baby powder" in it. To me it smells of chemical old lady make up. So nasty! I bought it, got home and read the ingredient list and was only willing to even try it on my lips. I did and could not it wear it more than 5 mins due to the horrifying STRONG mineral oil smell and bitter flavor. Next day after this was on my lips only 5 mins, I had a lip pimple. I NEVER get pimples anywhere before trying this. Throw it in the trash and don't look back!

Color Craze Nail Polish

L.A. Colors Color Craze nail polish (with nail hardeners) is hands down my favorite nail polish brand of all time. I have tried brands like Essie and OPI and though I enjoy them (and love Essie for its classic delicate look), L.A. Colors has truly stood out. The best part about these nail polishes is the range and variety of colors. They make some of the 'best of' shades that I have ever tried. Hottie, a light neon orange, is my favorite nail polish period. My favorite blues, white, silver, pastels, neons and pink come from this line of polishes. The second and equally important thing I love about this brand is the finish of the polish. It is so smooth and creamy, truly a pleasure to look at on the nails. The finish of the polish is simply gorgeous and the most beautiful I have seen. The third aspect of these polishes that make them amazing is the easy of application. The handle is comfortable to use to apply the polish. The brush is sizable enough to make application efficient. Most polishes in the range take only 2 coats for full opacity. The formula of the polish is also easy and smooth to apply. Drying time is pretty standard. The fourth exciting thing about this product are the in-built nail hardeners which unquestionably strengthen your natural nails (even after its been in a weakened state), making it a nail treatment as well as a polish for painting. The fifth reason this product is awesome is because the color lasts for several days before any real chipping. A sixth reason is that these nail polishes stay glossy. Even before a top coat (or even without one), this brand gives your nails a professional shine always. Even comparing photos of nails from other brands to this one showed a noticeably distinct difference in the reflective glossy depth and dimension in this brand's polish. The seventh thing I love most about this brand is that the glitters are epic with endless options. The dazzle and glitz given from these glitters are stunning. Try Sparkling Diamonds, Dizzy, Cupid's Arrow, Glitter Bomb, etc. Plus, the seasonal new additions of polishes to the brand often include a wide variety of new glitters to choose from. The eighth reason I am a fan of this product is the consistency of quality, to the extent that I know I can pick out a color and have absolute certainty that it will be as good as other polishes I loved from this brand and consistently will likely outperform other brands. This is my favorite brand for several reasons. The fact that it's $1 simply makes it a thrill to collect or stock up. You can try new colors you wouldn't otherwise try. You can easily treat yourself to a new bottle of polish with assuredness of high quality. You can delight in the seasonal brand new colors added for a little guiltfree fun doing your nails in something new. The display of these beautiful array of colors invites the nail novice and expert alike--truly unique and absolutely stunning shades regardless of how many nail polishes you've had exposure to. Both the permanent colors and ever-expanding seasonal colors will delight the nail polish lover. If you see a shade you love its no harm to grab it because when it sells out you may not be able to find it again unless it's at another store. When it comes to finding the most gorgeous shades of all, this brand continues to set the bar.
