To preface, I have never before tried a BB cream. I purchased shade #23 from my local asian supermarket for about $25.00USD. Looking back I now have found that this is sold on Ebay and Amazon for MUCH cheaper! Silly me...

Pros:
- Very comftorable wear with just enough coverage
- Keeps my very oily skin matte for most of the day (when set with powder)
- Hygenic …

Liquid - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

This foundation is very light, and maybe medium if you really pile it on. But I have a tendency to wear this on days when I just want something to keep my oily skin at bay for a few hours and to even out my skin tone. The color did not oxidize on me, but it also did not last past 6 hours.I do like the packaging, and the color is a close match for my NW25.

The first week I had this, i really enjoyed it. It gave me long and thick lashes, which is what every girl wants, right?
After using this for 2 weeks, the formula changed drasticly and became very thick and dry, causing the application to be so clumpy. I had to wipe off the brush every single time just to get a decent application.

Love this color! I have to thank MUA for my purchase because without seeing this on here, I would have never ever picked it up. Super cheap and great quality. This lasted about 4 days before even slightly chipping on me which is much better than some of my other high end polishes.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but make sure to try this on your eyelids in the store before you buy it. I am one of those who thought it looked great in the pan, but on me it is just this awful copper orange color. I have tried it a few different ways, and nothing seems to work. NW25 for reference.

I really love this duo. I own orgasm from NARS, and I think the blush on this ELF compact is far more pigmented. It may not be as finely milled as the NARS, but as long as you really blend well, then you will look just fine! I haven't tried NARS laguna, but the bronzer in this duo is quite dark, but once again use a light hand and blend! This looks great especially in the summer time.

LOVE this color! It is sometimes difficult to find edgier or matte colors in the drugstore amidst all the reds and pinks, but rimmel has done it! I love that this formula really does last quite a while on your nails before chipping. The brush is different and the first time I wasn't sure if I liked it or not, but now I find that it makes application a little faster. I might also add that the …Read more

I will buy this 'till I'm 100 years old and kicking it in my rocker. This is the best scrub I have ever used. The exfoliant is much finer than the popular St. Ives apricot scrub, which makes for a much gentler wash, and I even have facial eczema. The price is super cheap for the quality, and this doesn't over dry either. You really can't go wrong with this!

Wow I must really be the minority here. I have had such a hard time enjoying this brush. It is very densly packed with bristles, almost too much. With highend blushes such as Nars, you really need a light hand, and this brush is very difficult to pick up just a little bit of color. I always end up putting way too much on with this brush. On a positive note, I love that it is ecofriendly and …Read more
