By far the BEST dry shampoo I've tried! To give you an idea, I have tried Rene Furterer, Oscar Blandi (both spray and powder), Dove, Tresemme, Herbal Essences, Batiste, and a few that I can't recall. The price alone is a plus - but this actually, ACTUALLY cleans my hair and leaves me feeling fresh! I've only seen it sold at my local Duane Reade, and I've already gone through …Read more

Beautiful packaging, although not the most portable or convenient. It's very large and flat and not exactly travel friendly, but still gorgeous. The colors are great, and the product is very soft and fine - so a little, i think, goes a long way with this. I wasn't too sure about the highlight color, it looked flat and too yellow, but it complemented my NC30-35 skin great as a …Read more

I've been using liquid foundation for over 13 years and I finally have found the HG of primers that works for my face! I have combination skin, and while I have dry patches, I have always had the issue of foundation sliding all over my face and looking blotchy at the end of a long day. I've tried many primers (Smashbox photofinish when it was all the rage, shiseido,etc.) and none have …Read more

This is one of the best concealers out there! The formula lets you blend easily and build up on coverage, and sometimes I am honestly tempted to use this as a foundation all over my face but the price and how little the bottle is stops me from doing that. This isn't a super heavy, cakey concealer like the the studio finish (which i love also for those stubborn zits and uneven areas around …Read more

I know this is HG for a lot of people, but I just don't feel it. The coverage is average at best and I was surprised at how watery and thin the formula was. It actually oxidized and turned orange-y only after 2 hours of application, and it slid around and became blotchy at the end of the day, even after setting with powder and on a non-humid summer day. I have tried to use it with all sorts …Read more

This is the first lipstain I've tried and I am actually impressed! I really need color on my lips but I hate how lipstick just rubs off as soon as you touch your lips on something. I have this in Victorian, on me it sort of looks like a sheer berry color. The marker tip kind of took some getting used to, and it felt sort of tingly as I put it on and it dried. The balm is great - it …Read more

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation - Ivory

I really wanted to like this foundation for its promise of "staying matte" but alas, no dice. It had moderate coverage, but the color left something to be desired. It wasn't pigmented enough and it almost looked ashen. I tried Medium Beige (I am an NC35 in MAC currently) and the color seemed a good match but I did not like the finished look of this foundation. I did like the …Read more

The only reason I really didn't give this a 4/5 for overall rating is that I hate having to clean it so often. I never thought I would love a sponge applicator for my foundation, but this has really impressed me. The texture is silky smooth, and blends very nicely and does not absorb so much of the product like I would have imagined a sponge would. I normally use MAC #187 or Sephora's …Read more
