This powder isn't appropriate for oily skin OR those who don't want mineral oil on their face. I thought I was going nuts when I'd use it to mattify my shiny areas, then feel greasy again quite soon. It's because it contains mineral oil and lanolin!

Too bad, I loved the packaging.

This lip product is versatile enough for every situation I'm in, looks natural and complements my NC15-20 coloring nicely.

I've had a hard time finding a lip color that looks great on my pale complexion, and isn't too dark or bright. If you have a skin tone like mine and can't find a good shade, try this!

I was surprised to find that this dry shampoo did the least oil-absorbing of all the brands I've tried so far. I have thick, light brown wavy hair that gets oily 2 days after washing.

When I applied this product in the same amount as I would other dry shampoos, I had no problem rubbing away the white, or brushing it through my hair. I looked good right after using it. 3-4 hours …

Pressed Powders - Physicians Formula - Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder in Translucent

This compact surprised me by actually showing off my skin. I'm pale, and very pink, with oily skin. Discoloration seems to be diffused, and I look like I have a healthy inner glow.

Yes, I am covered in sparkles like a 10 year old girl. Since I only use this in the evening, the sparkle is fine by me.

I usually only use pressed powder to quickly freshen up before after- …

You really only need a tiny bit of this. Dot it onto your lid with the supplied brush, then sweep it across with your finger. Work quickly, since you can't blend this at all once it's set.

Don't use too much or it'll look flaky and skin condition-y.

Love it!

This is my favorite undereye concealer. I've bought this continuously for maybe 5 years now.

I thought the ladies at the Benefit counter were goddesses when they introduced this to me, and showed me how to use it. My life changed. Covering the bags under my eyes helped me conceal the all nighters I pulled in school, redness around the nose from sickness or …

Before I wore "real" makeup (tinted moisturizer, foundation, etc) on a daily basis, I would just use dabs of concealer and a bit of this stuff to mattify my oily skin.

For a while I really liked it. In moderation, it makes your skin soft and velvety. Use too much and you feel like you smothered yourself in Crisco.

Beyond the mattifying effect, it also keeps your …

SO glad I got a sample at Sephora before purchasing. Jeez, this is super expensive- nearly $50 for 1.7 oz.

I got the Light shade, which was fine on my NC 15-20 skin. It goes on smoothly, and has a cornstarch-y feel, kind of like Benefit's Dr. Feelgood. It's velvety and seems whipped. There's no cornstarch in it, which surprised me when I read the label. Instead, 8 …

Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

Mar/18/2012

It's a dollar and I use it every day in Coffee (a light brown). I used to use black every night when I worked in a nightclub, and the saturation is much better in the black. The plum is ok, but didn't look good on me. Same for the navy.

Each pen lasts me only about a month. It's not my holy grail but it gets the job done, and lasts about 8 hours.

The brush …
