Jul/02/2008

I was unsure of whether to buy Double Wear due to my long time devotion to Revlon Colorstay. There has been a lot of comparisons between the two, so I will list the traits of both:


Estee Lauder Double Wear:
-Substantial coverage (possibly too heavy, for natural look lovers)
-Easy blendability
-Wider range of shades (Ecru is a PERFECT match for me. Beware of EL …

Loose Powders - COVERGIRL - TruBlend Naturally Luminous Loose Powder

All I can say is...Don't buy this crap!!! It is very chalky, made me look like I put a mask on, PLUS it is orange!!! I bought in Transparent Light, but the product itself seems like a bronzer or something. Don't be fooled by the "naturally luminous" claims, it performs very far from that. My New York Color loose powder actually does a much, much better job. It provides a …Read more

Loose Powders - NYC New York Color - Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder - Translucent

Hmm...kind of mixed on this one. For its dirt cheap price ($2.99!!) it certainly delivers. I love how matte and velvety my face looks after I brush it on, but that is because my skin tends to get very oily. Probably not for dry-skinned people!! It will only illuminate dry patches of skin. However, I notice that the powder is very visible on my skin even though it is "translucent", and …Read more

After reading rave reviews about this product, I had to try it for myself! My oily skin is always a problem with foundation, and I cant go 2 hours without frantically whipping out my powder compact. My the end of the day, my foundation practically melts off my face and turns orange. So Colorstay seemed ideal! I bought it in the Combo/Oily version in Buff, a perfect shade for fair-skinned women …Read more

Wow, I was definitely hoping for more from this mascara. I decided to take a break from my beloved Telescopic, and boy do I regret it!! This mascara is probably one of the worst ones Ive tried. The primer did absolutely nothing, and the mascara lengthened my lashes a little, with no volume at all! It smudged horribly, and if you add more coats for volume it just clumps. I suggest either …Read more

I bought this in Blue black, envisioning deep shiny raven hair on my head. Ive tried many black hair dyes, from Natural Match to Nutrisse and Nice n Easy, however none gave me the jet-black that I wanted. Ive eyed this product on the shelves for a while, but the model's hair looked so blue and dramatic! But I went out and bought it today, realizing that regular black didn't give me the …Read more

I think this could be my HG foundation!! The coverage has a nice creamy texture, but surprisingly it produces a matte finish and covers ALL of my imperfections! I didn't need any concealer after using this, not like after using some expensive liquid foundations where the coverage wasn't great. The shade I picked, Nude Ivory (121) matched perfectly with my fair skin. Wasn't too …Read more

I love this product! It really does sculpt your cheekbones, and it makes my rounded face appear slimmer. I really like the contour shade, it is a a very neutral color which emulates a your faces natural shadows. I always get compliments from this, I havent seen a better sculpting product.

This foundation is HG material! I always come back to this foundation, even after trying tons of high-end ones, including Make Up For Ever, Bare Escentuals, and Laura Mercier. I stumbled upon this foundation while I was on vacation, and needed emergency cover-up. And I discovered my HG foundation! The coverage is creamy and makes my face look flawless! The only complaint is for those with oily …Read more

This foundation was OKAY. it didn't really do much for my oily skin, I didn't get the "mattifying" effect that I wanted. Just like any other foundation, my t-zone would get shiny after a couple hours. So i wasn't blown away by this foundation, though I will say the coverage was quite natural. But for the price, I would not buy again.
