I liked the sample so much, I bought the roller ball. Full price is outrageous!

I'm currently obsessed with this for the summer. I dislike most "clean" or "beach" scents, and was surprised I liked this one so much.

On me, it smells like Coppertone sunscreen + baby powder, with a slight fresh young coconut vibe (not synthetic coconut - ew). The …

Primer/ Corrector - COVERGIRL - TruBlend Primer (Dry)

Mar/03/2016

I was very excited when I purchased this, because I have dry cheeks and the semi matte, matte foundations that are in vogue right now are looking patchy on my winter skin.

I like the texture, it is creamy but with a hint of silicone. It went on my skin well, and I loved the finish my foundations had over it.

Unfortunately, this primer ultimately broke me out, so I must have …

About me: NW13-20 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), dark gray- blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW/DSPW.

I purchased and used this sunscreen for a year and half. I would say it has the consistency of a liquid lotion and often felt cold on my skin. At first, I thought it was matte, but the more I used it, I actually felt it did not dry down well. I could …

NW13-N20.

This has been my favorite red nail polish for 2 years. There are so many reds on the market, but I don't feel the need to try them because this color is just PERFECT for my skin tone.

It looks like a vibrant, classic true red. However, if you turn the glass bottle sideways, wait for the polish to thin out, and look at it in the light, there is a very slight …

Foundations - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Feb/05/2016

I purchased in the shade N2. Before you purchase, look up the swatches online because this foundation runs VERY LIGHT. N2 is easily NW10-15.

This foundation gives medium coverage - one swipe will even your skin, two swipes will hide minor imperfections. You will still need to apply under eye concealer and/or corrective concealer to acne or scars.

It has a very dewy finish …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

Feb/05/2016

I purchased in the color Nude Flush. It was a dark flesh-toned nude, and swung warm-toned on me. It was pigmented and went on easy, but never seemed to set. It also had a strong chemical scent. With so many options at the drugstore for liquid lipsticks right now, this is an easy "skip".

I personally did not like this color or formula.

Maybe my bottle had been sitting at the store for awhile, but the first layer went on streaky, the second layer went on goopy, and I had to do a third layer just to try to get an even finish.

Secondly, the color dries different than what is shown on the bottle. I wanted a soft peach-pink, and this ended up looking like a neon …

About me: NW13-20 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), dark gray- blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW/DSPW.

I purchased this in search of a MLBB lip gloss shade. It barely shows up on my lips and has a bit of glitter. Just could not get excited about this color. I much prefer the shade White Russian.

About me: NW13-20 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), dark gray- blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW/DSPW.

In general, this is a FANTASTIC lip product. Highly pigmented, milky formula. Does not run, feel greasy, or get sticky. Fades evenly and the stain matches the gloss color (doesn't turn your lips purple like alot of stains).

About me: NW13-20 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), dark gray- blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW/DSPW.

I inherited this product from my mom, who couldn't get the knack and gave up using it.

I didn't like the "spray and set" application, it always streaked on me and I felt like I was wasting so much product on my bathroom …
