I bought this foundation last year for the winter time and I hated it. It stuck to my dry patches & made me way too oily.
Since then, my skin has changed and is now more oily than dry, and I have a better knowledge of makeup overall.
I LOVE this foundation now! It is my perfect shade for the winter (Classic Ivory). You NEED to set this with a powder if you get oily. It is extremely …

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - Erase paste

Jun/09/2014

This is a product that I never thought I needed - but now that I have it, I don't think I can be without it. I never was concerned about my under eyes, they aren't that dark and I only have one or two veins showing. But when I recieved this as a gift, it really made me realize how much covering your under eyes brightens your face! Also, when I'm in a rush, I've used this on …Read more

Loose Powders - NARS Cosmetics - Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

4.0

Dec/27/2013

This powder is great. Doesn't look cakey at all and hides pores pretty well. I do not see the "light reflecting" effects.
However, I returned it. I just can't justify the price when my $3 NYC loose powder is (almost) just as good. I am willing to deal with a little less quality for literally 1/10 of the price.
If you're willing to spend, this is the powder for …

It makes me break out - which is understandable since it's supposed to be bringing everything to the surface, but I find even after the break out has passed, I still have the same amount of clogged pores.
However, it does work beautifully on my forehead. Not sure why...but I don't really get breakouts on my forehead, just those little tiny underground bumps, and this does the job …

Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/28/2013

It lives up to it's name. It is full coverage. I have moderately severe acne and really red skin/acne scars (I'm extremely pale). I'm in the shade 3 because I got this when I was tanner, but it's so blendable, you can't even tell. Also, it's so yellow which is perfect for me as most of my foundations run pink, so they even each other out. It's expensive, but …Read more

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-In-1 Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/28/2013

I like this just as much as my Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation. It doesn't have quite the overage, but close enough. And it's about 1/4 the price so I can settle. It covers a lot - not everything, I still need my MUFE concealer to take care of some spots, but I have moderately severe acne with LOTS of scars, so I probably have more redness than most. This controls my oil extremely …Read more

Nov/28/2013

Lord have mercy, JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON. It is worth the hype. I know it seems silly to pay a relatively expensive amount for a sponge, but I promise you, it will make the crappiest foundation look good. I use this with my Covergirl Outlast Foundation (see review) and they are perfect together, as the beautyblender tends to make things natural looking, and the foundation is full …Read more

If your skilled at eyeliner and need something that's long lasting - this is your eyeliner. This stuff does not come off! Unfortunately, I really really hate the brush. I picked this up as my old eyeliner was completely out and it was only like $3. But I wouldn't repurchase, mainly do to the fact I like trying different eyeliners.

UPDATE 11/28:
I actually did repurchase …

I got my Mia in March. I have to say, it's helped a lot but hasn't done everything I want it to. Background on my skin (before Mia): combination, always had breakouts, always had cystic acne that would stay there foreverrrrrrrr.
I got my first cystic acne since Mia the other day from a horrible hormonal breakout. So it has done a good job in regards to that. It has done well with …

BB Cream - Maybelline New York - Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

Jul/25/2013

Overall, it's nice. I wear it when I'm just running out to get something or out with my family. I don't feel it at all on the skin. But I wish it had a little bit more coverage. Yes I know it's a BB cream, and does do a fairly good job of brightening and evening out my skintone, but if I have any current breakouts, this doesn't do anything to it. Frankly, I don't …Read more
