If you’re not into the whole I-must-collect-all-these-pretty-things-even-if-I’ll-probably-only-use-it-once-in-its-two-year-lifespan make-up collecting frenzy, you’d probably wonder why someone–anyone, really–would pay upwards of $50 for this compact. Well, let me count the ways in which Petticoat has improved my life:

1. Texture
Unlike other more recently released MSFs …

Liquid - Rouge Bunny Rouge - Milk Aquarelle

Dec/23/2007

Coverage: Light to Medium

What I like about it:
Wow, this foundation has the prettiest cover packaging that I have ever bought, with a round stand case that has a foam base and pretty floral art on the cardboard cover casing. The pump bottle gives just the right amount of product for a medium coverage for my face. I know the foundation is actually supposed to be liquid but the …

Blush - Pure Luxe Cosmetics - Blush in Nymph

Whatever they say on the website that this is the perfect pink/peach color? That's all true. It's the blush I use most often, has amazing staying power and goes extremely well with any bronzer (for a flushed tanned look) or highlighter. I'm going to buy this again and again and again...

This is a godsend for my oily skin! It gives a wonderful, soft matte finish that has light-diffusing stuff to give that soft air-brushed look, which I really need in order to hide my acne scars. I think it's kind of messy using loose powder foundations, but I am making an exception for Pure Luxe because it is simply the most amazing foundation I have ever encountered.

Crème - shu uemura - Face Architect [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/23/2007

What I like about it:
Of all the foundations I tried, this has the most even coverage of all. I love how the cream contours into every nook and cranny of my face to give a pretty, flawless finish (hence the name). It’s quite heavy but with a light touch and a good foundation brush, it’s easy to control the amount of product I’m putting on my face so that I have medium coverage. I also love …

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Dec/23/2007

What I like about it:
Currently, this is the foundation I am using most often. The consistency is quite heavy, but using a brush easily moderates the amount of product I put on my face. I’m loving the fact that the color is perfect for my skin tone. It’s heavy enough to cover up my blemishes so that I don’t even need to use a concealer, yet light enough that I don’t look like I’m wearing a …

Foundations - Bourjois - Matt Lovely

Dec/23/2007

What I liked about it:
Besides its purse-friendly price, Bourjois has always been one of the most reliable drugstore brands out there, and that’s no coincidence since this is from the same manufacturer/company as Chanel. I like how even if I’m using a tad more than what I intended, it’s not so heavy on the skin. The color suits my skin very well too, and because of its handy small tube …

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - ALL MAT Matifying Base

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/23/2007

This is a nice silicon-based primer that helped even out the blemishes on my face and kept my face quite matte, as long as I use it with a powder foundation. Used with liquids and creams, all bets are off. For reference, I have oily skin all over and used with my Pure Luxe mineral foundation, this primer gave me a matte face for about 10 hours. I suggest using only a tiny pea-sized amount for …Read more

Powder - Alima Pure - Satin Matte Mineral Foundation

3.0

Dec/23/2007

I purchased some samples and got the right colors for my skintone, but I have several problems with this mineral foundation:
First, the coverage is not as even as my liquid/cream foundations. I had some noticeable patches of powder left in some parts of my face that didn't blend into the rest of the color of my face. It also wasn't matte or pigmented enough to lighten my under-eyes …
