Liquid - Prescriptives - Virtual Skin [DISCONTINUED]

3.0

May/04/2004

Like other reviewers, I love the range of Px colors. I have fair skin with yellow undertones, and the real vellum 01 matched perfectly. However, although it says light to medium coverage, I found it thick and hard to spread. (This may be due to the sunscreen). I had to mix oil free moisturizer with this to get sheer coverage, and then it was TOO sheer. Sigh. Not a bad product, but not worth …Read more

Moisturizers - Lancôme - Impactive Multi-performance silkening moisturizer

Oct/09/2003

Unlike many reviewers, I actually liked the strong fragrance, and this moisturizer does feel very silky when applied. However, it did nothing for the flaky areas of my oily/combination skin. In face, it seemed to make the flaky areas worse! I also started breaking out after using it, although I can't swear that this product was the reason. This is also fairly expensive, as most Lancome …Read more

Liquid - Prescriptives - Oil Free Foundation

3.0

Jul/29/2003

I actually intended to buy the Virtual Skin Foundation, but all the Prescriptives foundation bottles look identical, and being in a rush, I ended up with this! I thought this foundation was okay; fairly good coverage and easier to apply than Lancome Maquicontrole or some of the other oil-control foundations. However, it didn't do much to control oil in my t-zone and staying power is only …Read more

Jul/17/2003

I bought this based on the reviews of other MUA users, but unfortunately it didn't work well for my combination skin. It does mattify well but is difficult to blend (because it dries so quickly) and looks cakey on dry patches. I also found that my
t-zone was greasy again fairly quickly--and blotting with oil-control tissues caused the makeup to come off. The color is good, fairly …

Moisturizers - DDF - Ultra Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew

Jul/14/2003

On the plus side, this is a good, lightweight moisturizer for oily skin. Very easily absorbed. However, it isn't hydrating enough for my combination skin in the fall/winter. It also has a slight smell (which I find unpleasant) and is expensive for what it is. I would probably not re-purchase.

I got this mascara as a gift and was excited to try it, given the rave reviews it has gotten. But I found that it made my lashes clump together and ended up smudging under my eyes by the end of the day. Not for me...

Concealers - Prescriptives - Magic Pencil

Jun/09/2003

I've been looking for a good concealer pencil for a while. This product was okay, but I wouldn't buy it again. Not a wide range of colors available and it goes on a little thick (harder to blend than some other products that I've tried.) I'll keep looking for my HG concealer...
