Loose Powders - Tarte Cosmetics - Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder

Mar/31/2017

Unfortunately, this powder made my undereyes look dry and cakey. I have combo skin. My nose and undereye can get a bit oily while everywhere else is normal. I look for a smooth, creamy powder that won't crease. This powder was chalky, dry, and left a weird residue on my skin. The packaging is also quite messy. Every time I open it, powder goes everywhere. I love other tarte products, but …Read more

Liquid - L.A. Girl - LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Illuminating Foundation

Mar/31/2017

This is my new favorite drugstore foundation! It has medium to full coverage. It covers my redness and acne scarring with ease. It dries down a little tacky but I always set my foundation with a powder anyways. My favorite thing about this foundation though is it's lasting power. I can wear this for 12+ hours without it fading or looking patchy, which is more than I can say for some pricier …Read more

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Murumuru Butter Bronzer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2016

This is probably my favorite drugstore bronzer. I love the smell and it blends like a dream. I have the darker shade and it's perfect for my skintone. I'm about a NC20 if that tells you anything about the shade selection. Physician's Formula always struggles with shades for deeper skintones. Instead of having 10 bronzers in 2 shades each, why not have 4-5 bronzers in more shade …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

Nov/18/2016

There's a reason the Benefit Hoola bronzer is so hyped up; it really is that good! I'm about a NC20 and this is the perfect shade for me for contouring. I've bought other bronzers/contour powders and they all make me look muddy or orange. It's buttery and blends like a dream. My only complaint is the bulky packaging. Like why Benefit?!? Why must all your products be housed in …Read more

Polishes - wet n wild - 1 Step Wonder Gel

5.0

Nov/18/2016

I love these polishes. I know they market it as a all in one polish but I personally still use a basecoat and a topcoat. I can make it last for up to a week without major chipping which is longer than some other more expensive polishes. For other people complaining about the lasting power, they're probably just using it alone.

As with all wet n' wild polishes, I love the …

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2016

The MAC pro longwear concealer is decent. I've only used this to cover up redness and blemishes, I don't use it under my eyes. Like all MAC products, their shade selection is excellent. I have the same complaint as other users about the packaging. I've figured out how to dispense the right amount of product I want, but there's nothing you can do to reach the product at the …Read more

Loose Powders - NYX Professional Makeup - Mineral Finishing Powder

Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2016

In my opinion, there are better loose powders at the drugstore. I have normal/combination skin so I get slightly oily around my nose and under my eyes. When I set my concealer with this, it makes my undereye area look cakey, dry, and patchy. When I set my entire face with this it is almost too matte, and I actually prefer the matte look over dewy. I also find the tint in this powder changes the …Read more

Nov/18/2016

This isn't my favorite foundation from the drugstore but it's not terrible. The shade range is pretty good. You're bound to find one similar to your skin tone. I typically prefer lighter coverage foundations compared to this one though. This is a foundation that definitely makes it look like you're wearing foundation, which is not something I like for a daily basis. It's …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2016

This is a product youtube made me buy. Everyone was talking about how great this foundation was but I just don't see it. First off, the shade range is actually pretty terrible. They have 15 shades but there are really just 5 shades in 3 different undertones. I'm about a NC20 (leaning NC15) and I find I'm in between W1-2 and W3. In their original True Match Line, I wear W2 …Read more

Nov/09/2016

This is my holy grail drugstore foundation! It's a medium buildable coverage which covers my redness and acne scarring well with one layer. It's a demi-matte finish that pairs well with my combination skin. I do have to moisturize well before application otherwise it can look cakey. It's extremely light weight it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing foundation. My only …Read more
