BB Cream - COVERGIRL - Clean Matte BB Cream

3.0

10 months ago

The light 520 shade is perfect for cool tone complexions who normally buy the second to the lightest foundation shade. For example, light 520 is very similar to Neutrogena nourishing long wear liquid foundation in natural ivory, which is the second lightest shade behind classic ivory. The BB cream is sheer, even with two layers, so I am still using a coverstick underneath it! I do love the …Read more

Loose Powders - Ben Nye - Bella Luxury Powder: Cameo (formerly known as Visage Poudre Luxury Powder)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/10/2019

Ben Nye's loose Cameo Luxury Powder is actually the best loose powder I have ever used. I'm sold on it because it is super fine and velvety. It sets my makeup all day long without looking cakey. There is no noticeable scent when applying this powder. It isn't as expensive as you may initially think because you receive a large quantity. Once you buy the 0.92 oz / 26 gram $13.50 …Read more

Loose Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Mattifying Loose Powder

4.0

Jan/10/2019

This product is the correct color for light and light medium complexions. It works great, but it does have a scent. I prefer no strong scent when applying my loose powder to set my make up. Since it is a brand that will one day stop making this product anyway, I have switched to a brand of loose powder that has been around for ages because it is a best seller (Ben Nye Cameo Luxury Powder).

Blush - Mehron Makeup - Cheek Cream - Geranium

5.0

Dec/23/2018

Mehron needs to put its fabulous pink geranium cream blush back in its screw top pot. The hinge crumbles very quickly in the newer, flip-top containers. The product spreads well over moisturizer / sunscreen. The blush color is a cool, medium pink that is very bright if used alone, but blends perfectly under foundation. The pink shows through without being too vibrant because the blush is …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara

5.0

Apr/26/2018

I am a repeat buyer of Maybelline's the Colossal Volum' Express waterproof mascara because it quickly deposits the mascara on my lashes, and it does not dry out so fast like most other mascaras. The similar Colossal mascara in the gold-colored tube does dry out too quickly.

I keep buying the Rimmel hazel eyebrow pencil with the brush on the cap. It has a good consistency for application. I powder my eyebrows to both soften the color and set the pencil for a long day.

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2018

I bought the Flirtatious quad, which included four great colors for my hazel green eyes. Ultimately, I gave it to my daughter because I don't like having to remove the sparkles from the rest of my face. After trying makeup removers, moisturizers, and astringent, the only thing that worked is tape pressed on my face to grab and pull off those sparkles.

Foundations - Max Factor - Pan Stik

I am a long-time user of the original (14 gram plastic cylinder) Max Factor Pan Stik in shade 109 Medium. I still have the last one my husband bought on eBay late last decade. I have purchased numerous Kryolan TV Paint Sticks, trying to match close to this 109 Medium shade. (Per my Kryolan TV Paint Stick review, Kryolan San Francisco's opinion is that shades N4 or FS38 color match to Max …Read more

Concealers - Hard Candy - Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2018

The fair shade should be used by ALL cool-toned (summers and winters) fair, light and medium women. At present, the fair shade is the ONLY pink shade in the bunch. I would expect Hard Candy to eventually make Light Cool, Medium Cool, and Dark Cool, but here is the workaround in the interim. If you're fair, you use the product as is. If you're light or medium, this concentrated …Read more
