I have no idea why people are describing this as a cool pink, unless the formula has changed. It's a nice moisturizing creme lipstick in a medium rosy pink, but it is not cool-toned; it pulls terra-cotta on me, like a brownish version of Revlon Pink in the Afternoon. And because of that, it looks unnatural and unflattering on my light-to-medium yellow-toned skin. (My MLBB lipsticks are all …Read more

I have this in Always Lovely, which is a sparkly pink frost. It stays put about average for a gloss and isn't too sticky. But the sickly-sweet smell bothers me, and the frost doesn't look good over lipstick. Would not buy again.

I don't get the love that this quad gets. I had it for years and didn't replace it. The two brown shades were indistinguishable from each other and looked okay on my skin, but were nothing special. The grayish shade looked like dirt on my face. And the highlight shade didn't show up on my skin. I'm glad it works for so many people, just wanted to add a differing viewpoint.

I want to love this brush, because I find its shape appealing, but it's my jack of all trades and master of none. Too dense for applying powder blush or contour -- it results in a garish stripe. Decent for applying liquid foundation, but not as handy as a stippling brush. I can use it to apply setting powder, but there are a lot of brushes that work for that. This brush is not useful enough …Read more

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Flawless Concealer Brush

Edit: I started using more product with it and now get much better results, both in coverage and a natural finish, than a traditional flat concealed brush with my Bobbi Brown creamy concealer. However, if you have the e.l.f. studio contour brush, then you already have a smaller version of this brush and I don't think you need this one, so I would not repurchase for that reason.

I have two of these, and they're great. Tolima is a light to medium brown; goes on very sheer but if I pack it on, it looks like a real shadow on my eye. Kalahoo has been described as warm gray but I would say it's actually a light purplish color, and it looks pretty strong on me (light skin, neutral to cool tone). I bought them at a discount store so the price was low, and they're …Read more

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Clear Face Break-Out Free Liquid- Lotion Sunblock SPF 30

I bought this to replace my Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch spf 70, which I thought was breaking me out. This stings when it goes on though, and it runs into my eyes (and stings) when I sweat. I also sometimes break out after wearing it, so it's not even break-out free for me.

Eye Primer - wet n wild - Fergie Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer [DISCONTINUED]

An eyeshadow primer is essential for someone like hooded eyes, like me. Take on the Day prevents my eyeshadow from creasing, lasts all day, and has a very affordable price. Edit: found out I was using too much. Now I use the tiniest amount possible, like 1/4 a grain of rice, and it works great without giving my eyelid a crepey texture! Perfection.

This goes on pale (thanks to the titanium dioxide I presume) and then just gets more orangey as the day goes on. Otherwise kinda similar to my favorite TM (Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer) but with slightly less coverage and more matte, which is not great as it emphasizes fine lines a bit. But really the orange color is the dealbreaker.
