I bought this one day because I dropped my MAC concealer & was waiting for my backup to arrive in the mail & I wanted to see how this compared. The closest concealer I can compare this to is the MAC Pro Longwear concealer which I like a lot better then this. Estee Lauder owns MAC so I'm guessing that's why they're so similar. I think the MAC one has a better glide & …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50

May/28/2012

This is my favorite primer I've tried to date. It definitely feels & looks more like a moisturizer then an actual primer, it's white & blends into your skin, I can see this leaving a slight white cast if over-applied though due to the high SPF. Its consistency is that of a regular lotion not too thin or liquidy but not too thick or hard to spread. I don't notice any scent …Read more

May/21/2012

I REALLY wanted this bronzer to work for me as I need a bronzer that withstands sweat (I go to a lot of festivals & raves). There isn't very many options for water resistant/proof bronzers on the market & when there are they're either wayy too dark or don't work. I'm about an NC 35 & this is a little too light, the undertones are also a little too pink for my …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - REVLON - PhotoReady Perfecting Primer - 001

I got this because I wanted a cheaper primer alternative for everyday use but this product has shown me that higher end primers just work a lot better for me. The packaging is really great because of the pump though.
TEXTURE:
It feels a lot like the L'oreal Studio Secrets primer, that kind of thick, pale pink, creamy-yet-almost mousse like texture. It's very silicone-feeling …

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Magically Cool Liquid Powder

I do really like this powder but there are some things I'd wish MAC would improve on it. I bought this in Honey Rose & the shade is really nice, it gives a warm-rosy-champagne glow & makes me look really healthy but the only thing is that there are some noticeable glitter particles in this, I was hoping for a more straight metallic-like sheen much like their new Extra Dimension …Read more

I LOVE this foundation! This & Lancome 24hr are my favorites. I'm about an NC 35-40 & use the shades Tawny & Shell Beige. I have never in my life used a foundation with the lasting capabilities that this has. It beats out all other foundations in terms of wear, even the Lancome 24hr which claims to last for 24 hours - DW actually lasts longer on me & it only boosts 15 hours …Read more

I LOVE this foundation, this and Estee Lauder Double Wear are my favorite. I'm mostly going to be comparing this product to DW because I feel that they're different, not quite the same but I love them both equally. I love that they gave this a pump which is one thing I hate about DW is the lack of a pump..I despise having to pour out foundations!
TEXTURE:
It's actually …

May/10/2012

This is my favorite concealer by far! I've tried MUFE Full Cover, Estee Lauder DW concealer, Kat Von D Tattoo, Lancome Effacernes, Keromask, & a whole load of drugstore concealers & this is just the best. It's got great coverage without being cakey or too thick, a nice finish, not overly drying, super long wearing, & doesn't crease. Like everyone says, the packaging is …Read more

Liquid - Smashbox - Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

May/04/2012

I was getting bored with Estee Lauder Double Wear and was intruiged by this foundation, it claims to last for 15 hours like double wear. So I thought I'd give it a shot. Honestly, it's just okay. It's a good foundation but it just doesn't compare to double wear for me. It actually looks really good on the skin - if my skin is prepped right, it gives my skin a beautiful glow …Read more

HOLY CRAP! This is my HG eyeliner, I've tried several but this beats them all hands down. I use this all the time in the black for my cat eye liner & I always get questions & compliments. My cousin even got it & she loves it too. I'm so happy you can now buy Inglot online, this is fairly inexpensive ($12) it's the shipping that really gets you. I have the MUFE Aqua …Read more
