This is spackle not primer. For my combination-oily skin I don't love it. It made my skin look more mature and somehow accentuated my pores rather than reduced their appearance. It will keep your foundation on all day but I just don't like the appearance that it gives me or the fact that it is difficult to apply, you must work quickly as this dries instantly and will tug. I don't …Read more

Initially I thought this concealer was going to replaced two concealers that are dear to me but more pricey and those are Nars creamy concealer and the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer. It has the coverage of Nars and consistency of UD, which I thought was amazing, but it is not waterproof or long-lasting. I didn't realize how important to me it is to have a long-lasting/waterproof concealer …Read more

I thought I was really going to love this foundation, the thought of one pump for even coverage sounded dreamy to me. This is not the case, currently I am just using this as my work/errands foundation because I want to finish it. The reason that this doesn't work for me is that it seems to make my skin look dull, it certainly doesn't last all day and the color is different from that of …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Matte Balm - Elusive

I purchased this color on a 40% off sale at Rite Aid, it does have a minty scent and a tiny bit of a tingle to it. This specific color is a warm pink so keep your skin-tone in mind when shopping shades, otherwise this color may not work for you (I'm medium-tan). The longevity depends on if you are eating/drinking while wearing, you will need to touch up, it isn't a bullet proof matte …Read more

I finally picked up this palette after debating on whether or not to get it, and I don't regret it! It's the most portable, versatile palette I own. Recently I went on weekend get-a-way and this was the lucky palette that I chose to take with me. With the neutrals and pops of color, I was able to achieve daytime/nighttime looks. I was glad that I didn't bring any other palette as …Read more

I love this product! This color especially, it works great as either a wash of color that can be built up to full coverage eyeshadow or as an eyeshadow base. It stays put all day, it doesn't come off until I take it off with makeup remover wipes. I did pick this up at "the makeup show" for a mere $6 but I recall that one that I purchased at sephora a while ago was $21-23. Pretty …Read more

Starting off with the packaging, it looks a bit no-frills to me but I like that it is a squeeze tube, hygienic, and easy to carry. I don't like paying more than ten dollars for drugstore foundation, the cost of this in Walgreen's NYC is 12.99-13.99. To me I'd rather pay a few dollars more and get a mid-range brand. Overall it was long lasting (lasted me from early morning to late …Read more

I had a sample given to me by an SA at an EL counter and decided to use it now that it is cold here in NY. I like more dewy foundations around this time of year, I used a translucent setting powder over it due to my combination skin. From the application alone I didn't like this formula. My bronzer and blush looked patchy over this. It doesn't blend well. I have always used this …Read more

This color is a bit risqué for many people but that just makes me love it more. It's screams 90's to me, I remember when I first started wearing lipstick as a teen and I would wear these taupe brown colors in either matte or metallic finish. This is a metallic finish but it's surprisingly not gritty or even glittery, the finish is more of a sheen. I tried it on with mac …Read more

Great drugstore foundation if you don't like to feel your makeup on your skin, and don't suffer much from hyper pigmentation. I actually have some light old acne scars and this covers them up with one layer. I would say this can be built to medium coverage. It feels like a serum, I have tried magic nude by L'oreal and this has more slip to it. I also have better results with this …Read more
