I use the shade Buff in this foundation. I have fairish skin with yellow/warm undertones. The craziest thing about this foundation is it wears better as the day goes on. It becomes one with my skin and really looks great at the end of the day. I apply this using a dampened real techniques makeup sponge. I've tried using various brushes and for me the sponge is the best application …Read more

I received this mascara as part of QVC's special value Taste Miracles from the Amazon kit. I love the packaging from this entire set and the mascara is no exception. It's sort of a dry formula which I prefer because it doesn't end up on my eyelids. It gives nice volume and length and has very good wear time. The only thing JM bummed about is the price. I really like this mascara …Read more

Love this stuff! I've been using it for a while now to prime my eye area. Very recently I started using it on my entire face to prime it for foundation. Wow...this has made such a difference in how my foundation sits on my skin for the rest of the day. My foundation no longer looks cakey...it goes on smoothly! It provides a great barrier for my pours, so my face actually feels cleaner when I …Read more

Jan/07/2012

I bought this product to conceal my undereye circles. I've been using it for quite a while now and have realized, like many others, that this is too thick and cakey for my undereye area. I've tried moisturizing extra well in that area, and it still looks cakey. I've tried applying it with fingers and various brushes with the same results. However, I will continue to use this on …Read more

I originally bought this product when I began styling my hiar straight with a blowdryer. I usually diffuse it curly and very rarely use a straightener. I did find that this product shortened by drying time, though I wouldn't say it cut it in half. I love how silky the serum feels when applying it to my hair. You should be careful when applying because at first it seems as if you are not …Read more

LOVE this color! Definitely one of of favorites. Their are plenty of beautiful pictures on this site, so I won't go into the description of the color. It's very pretty and from what I've seen it works on almost everyone's skin tone. I love China Glaze polishes, although this color can be a bit tricky to apply nicely. It can get streaky and might need thinner at some point …Read more

This is an adorable color! i was worried that a mint green would make me look sickly, but it works when my hands are both pale and tan. Love the shimmer in this color! I have another mint color that's a cream, and I think I prefer the shimmery one. Sinful colors is a great deal easily found at Walgreens. It doesn't have the greatest staying power, but if you use a top notch top coat it …Read more

This product has been great for me! I originally purchased this as an under eye concealer, and I wasn't a huge fan. I decided to use it to cover the many red spots on my face under foundation and bronzer. This works so well for me that I've been using this to cover my redness and then setting with bronzer powder. On most normal days (ie not special occasions or events) I am able to get …Read more
