Liquid - Maybelline New York - Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

This is my new FAVORITE foundation. I'm 44 and my skin has changed. I can no longer wear long wearing foundations as they tend be to be cakey, I also cannot wear heavy or thick foundations for the same reason. So getting decent coverage with a thinner, lghter weight foundation that won't settle into fine lines has been my goal. I do like L'oreal True Match but the coverage is very …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Total Temptation Mascara

I picked this up because the store did not have my usual Full & Soft mascara. I'm very impressed, it goes on without clumps, makes my lashes look thicker and longer without excessive coats and doesn't flake. This is one of the best drug store mascaras I've tried. Will definitely buy again.

Lip Gloss - NYC New York Color - Up to 8 HR City Proof (ALL)

I bought this in midnight rose and while the color was very pretty, this is the stickiest lip gloss I've ever used. I could not take it and threw it away. My lips felt so tacky and were sticking together, it was awful. Will never purchase another.

If you don't have this, go buy it NOW! I was looking for a good undereye setting powder and kept reading about "banana" powder. I had no idea what that was but apparently many companies are now selling a yellow corrective powder for the undereye area. Ben Nye's is such a high quality and you get SOOOO much for the money. I ordered the small compact with the sifter for $12 and …Read more

I absolutely love this brush......... but not for blush. For me, it's too big to apply my blush but I use it for bronzer and it couldn't be more perfect. I love how soft and fluffy it is and it blends that bronzer out beautifully.

This is my new HG! As soon as I first applied this foundation, I was in love with the finish. It's as if it set on my skin perfectly. It didn't feel as though I had any foundation on when I ran my fingers on my skin. The coverage is med/full with a perfect matte finish. I had been using Revlon colorstay for a couple of years but this one beats that with the finish. I will definitely …Read more

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

I love the regular colorstay for oily skin; however, this does not work as well for me. The whipped formula seems to just sit on my skin and I do show more oil with it. I also hate the packaging as I have to dip my fingers into the jar to get it out and it's then gets under my nail. This may work better for someone with dry skin.

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Eye Liner - All Colors

Jul/24/2015

I bought this in brown black, and while I loved the color which was darkest brown, and I loved the ease of use to draw a solid line without skipping, I had an allergic reaction to this. I am allergic to "purple" cosmetics that use carmine in them but I never would imagine a brown black liner would contain it so I'm not sure. I've never reacted badly to any liner before so this …Read more

This palette caught my eye right away. The colors are so pretty and the packaging is really attractive as is the $6 price tag at Wal Mart. I got the Naturally Gorgeous palette which is warm neutral shades. The first time i used it, I noticed how much fallout I had all over my face and when I attempted to clean it up, it just got worse and worse. I've never seen anything like this before. The …Read more

I am so impressed with this foundation! I had used Revlon colorstay over a decade ago and wasn't as impressed but heard the formula had changed since then. Up until now, my favorite foundation for my oily skin was MUFE Matt Velvet +, but Colorstay is a third of the price and just as good. I got the color 330 which is perfect for me in the winter. It does stay on all day, looks natural and …Read more
