Liquid -Mary Kay -Medium Coverage Foundation

foto

Okay.... so I was first introduced to this foundation from a fellow oily skinned co-worker. Plus she was older than me...in her 50s. and her skin looked great!!
I used it for some time AND THEN decided to look else where ---- idk why????... but with me and foundations--the grass is always greener on the other side.
Fast forward 10+ yrs and many more foundations later (MANY from Sephora!) AND I tried it once again because I had a tube I hadn't used in my makeup drawer.
I was blown away!!!! Why did I stop using THIS?!? why?
Just a bit of background on my skin-- I am a Native American chick with super oily skin. Many foundations that are made especially for oily skin do not help me at all. My skin ends up breaking down the foundation in a few hours and leaving me looking an oily, shiny mess with zero coverage!! It looks awful!!!!!! And these are expensive foundations supposedly made for oily skin too!!!
My other issue is that my skin is a hard match. Sometimes a formula works "okay" but the maker does not have a good match for my skin tone. So that leaves me always looking for a better match and a better foundation.
HOWEVER, with THIS foundation-- it matches my skin as closely as I'm going to get as far as foundation goes. It oxidizes very well for me and leaves my skin looking matte and just normal-- like skin!!! and THAT is all I've always wanted!!! Just my acne scarring somewhat covered and my oily skin kept somewhat matte.
THIS does that. AND at the end of the day, when my skin has broken down some of the foundation...l still look decent!?! that always amazes me when I look in the mirror after a full day walking around in the summer heat-- i still look alright.... there's still some coverage left and my skin still looks like my skin with some of my imperfections covered.
THAT always amazes me.
I do not know why I was still looking for my "H.G." foundation--- tbh, only 2 foundations have ever worked well only life for my acne scarring and hyperpigmentation as well as my oily skin and skin tone/color. THOSE 2 are Revlon ColorStay foundation for Combination/Oily skin AND this one: Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation. That's it...those are the only ones that have decent coverage, match my skin shade/color, last a long period of time thru summer heat and my oily skin (isn't broken down by heat & oil in 2 hours or so) AND leave me somewhat mattified and not "dewy" and greasy looking.
In addition to all of this--- it doesn't break me out!!
SO I think I am always going to have a tube of this on hand. I am tired of the searching and swatching, the returns and the break outs from some foundations. I think this IS now my HG foundation for now. Makeup addict that I am, I'm sure that one day I'll be lured into trying something new in the hopes of a new product that matches my skin flawlessly and keeps oil under control-- BUT i think I will also remind myself that I have something that does match all my criteria and meets my needs already.
to my Oily skinned sisters out there-- Give this a try. I did.. I was amazed that it actually worked for me?! I still kind of am?! The "new" version-- the MK Timewise Matte foundation didn't work whatsoever and it made me look horrible as well!! BUT THIS, THIS works fantastically and I would advise all oily skinned gals to give this a try!! I'm sure glad I did all those years back!!!!!!!
I'm lifelong customer now!!!!!

Foundations -Mary Kay -CC Cream

I recently won a mary kay giveaway while I was visiting in Houston, Tx for a women's expo and I was introduced to mary kay products. The CC cream is my favorite. I am usually a NC45 and the cc cream in deep is perfect for my skin tone. This foundation is for those days when you want to look like you put in the effort to wear makeup but you just don't feel like wearing too many products on your face. It blurs out imperfections and evens out your skin tone. I recommend that if you want a little more coverage to add a little more or you can use a bit of concealer. overall, I love this product! It has a really nice pump on the packaging and its even nice and sleek enough to fit inside your purse if you really needed it. I am definitely buying a back up of this stuff.

Cleansers -Mary Kay -Clear Proof Acne System

I've used this system before and loved it. I just started using it again and now my skin burns and gets red right when I apply it. Any suggestions on how to stop/fix this? If possible I'd still like to keep using this system because it worked great last time.. unless it will actually burn my skin. Thanks in advance!

Foundations -Mary Kay -CC Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 15

I bought this cream because of the good reviews and then I got it in discount. I put it on with my fingers, two pumps only for face and neck. It’s a decent product, doesn’t smell, covers light to medium and feels nice on my mixed sensitive skin. I set it with powder and it looks nice, my pores are less and it evens my skin tone nicely, builds up easily, not cakey. It’s really helping with the oils, I only had to blot after 7 hours on a hot day.
I got light to medium for my NC 30 skin tone. Really liked it for being so easy and light!
