Foundations - REVLON - ColorStay Full Cover Foundation

Purchased in Buff (same as I wear for colorstay) which is decent match without being too pink or orange. Requires warming up with powder.

I have sensitive skin with a normal, balanced oil levels. My concerns are covering redness and not settling into pores. Plenty of time to work with it. A damp sponge has been my favorite way to apply.

This applies like a dream. Very easy …

Hair Styling Tools - REVLON - One-Step Hair Dryer & Voluminizer

I have fine, thick color-treated hair cut in a long shag resting below my shoulders. My primary goal is healthy hair but lots of VOLUME. I live in a 4 season climate that leans humid and warm.

I'm just not impressed. This didn't dry my hair any faster than my dryer and it did not add volume. As a matter of fact I was left with hair that was mostly dry and still needed a lot …

This product is just okay to me. It seemed difficult to achieve a consistent result. My pot started to dry out and become more difficult to work with in about 3 months. I would not repurchase this again. So many better products out there.

Foundations - BECCA - Ultimate Coverage 24 - Hour Foundation

I returned this almost immediately. The coverage is good. Color match was good. The smell is bad. It has a texture that was difficult to apply and never fully felt like it set. As always I try many techniques before I write a product off. Brush, sponge, primer, sunscreen only, powder, setting spray. On top of that it had zero lasting power. None. Of the three or so foundations I'm …Read more

I really want to like this. The color was good. The coverage was decent. The concealer went on very nicely. It set beautifully and looked very natural. It was very comfortable going on and forgiving regardless of method of application. If I were to grade on "initial quality," this is a winner. My comments apply to both products.

Unfortunately this does not stay all day …

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Expert Air Cushion Sponge

Holy Wack, Batman! I purchased several Real Techniques brushes thinking newer would be better than the originals I've had for a few years now. Not so much. But this.....this one little gem made up for all disappointments that day.

I have used cushion compact foundations but haven't found one that I want to commit to. So I have not used this with a cushion compact. I …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Brush Crush 301 Foundation

My goto face brushes are all Real Techniques. I even prefer them over all the more expensive brushes including the boutique brands. The pink sparkle handle brushes are ineffective and I have relegated them all for use in detailing our vehicles. They are decent at removing dust. Other than that, huge disappointment. Next!

This is a solid performer. I've been using this moisturizer over the summer and it has many great qualities.

I didn't think a gel would be moisturizing enough. I was wrong. It turns to a watery consistency as soon as you start spreading it. It absorbs very nicely and just leaves my skin feeling moist/moisturized. I don't know that this will be sufficient when the …
