This is a pretty nice TM. more coverage than most TMs... I find that the staying power is pretty good, I get about 8 hours or so- and touchup is very easy. However, the glitter, which i didn't think would bother me, actually started to bother me. It is generally unnoticeable, unless in sunlight. then you definitely can see gold flecks in your makeup and Im not always a fan of that. However …Read more

WOW I can't believe I've never written a review for this powder from Heaven.
Like most of you, I've tried a hundred different powders...this is in a league of it's own. I usually use this as a finishing touch over my dinair foundation, it has a beautiful finish, doesn't get oily, doesn't oxidize, DOESN'T CAUSE BREAKOUTS, and can also be used alone for a …

i LOVE this moisturizer!

This is Great for someone:
with oily skin, acne prone skin, and skin that tends to break out easily...
NOT great for someone with:
dry skin

I usually put 1 or 2 drops of jojoba oil on my skin after my morning shower, let my face dry and then put this on after. I think this is the perfect combo of acne medication and moisturizer …

I am using the OBAGI nuderm regimen (cleanser, toner, clear, exoderm forte, blender, and tretinoin .05) I have quite a bit of hyperpigmentation due to bc and having sensitive skin to marks and picking :/.

WEEK 1:
as far as the "monstrous" phase everyone else experienced, I didn't. Yes, my face is a tad flushed and I am definitely experiencing a LITTLE flaking on …

Liquid - Unlisted Brand - Dinair Airbrush Makeup Foundation

Jul/03/2011

EDIT: 3/04/13

I gave up airbrushing... I'm quite surprised it came to this, but I have to agree with what another reviewer said... after airbrushing, go check yourself out in a mirror, outside, in not so nice lighting... and man oh man, you wont look too pretty. Someday, my curiosity might bring me full circle back to airbrushing, but I just dont think its for me anymore. I need a …

Apr/21/2011

eh, I am a weird makeup person in the fact that if I use a liquid fndt of a certain brand, i like to have a matching powder from THE SAME BRAND. ie- i LOVE double wear light at normal liquid foundation and wanted this to be equally awesome to set or do touchup....

unfortunately, this looks shiny upon application and doesn't hold up to its 'double wear' name. the best way …

Cleansers - Acne.org - Cleanser

Apr/19/2011

AMAZING-just like all the other acne.org products

this is the most gentle yet effective cleanser i've ever used. I used to strive to find the cleanser that made my skin feel tight and stripped of EVERYTHING (i for some reason thought this was the effective way to prevent breakouts)

this, however, cleans your skin yet maintains the moisture perfectly.

if i …
