Loose Powders - Unlisted Brand - Mattify! Loose Powder

5.0

Jun/13/2010

Loose powder made from kaolin clay and cornstarch. Little goes a long way. Very cheap. Only thing that has truly ever worked for any period of time on my oily skin. Keeps the shiny away well past lunch. No sensitivities. Translucent on my skin but dark skinned ladies may have issue. Can find at www.mattifycosmetics.com.

Tinted Moisturizer - Paula's Choice - Barely There Sheer Matte Tint SPF 30 [DISCONTINUED]

I have very oily sensitive skin. This is really the only TM that has really worked for me. I usually help it along with a powder from Mattify Cosmetics made from cornstarch and kaolin clay. It lasts me most of the day. It's not really very moisturizing which is fine because I really don't need much. Coverage is just like the bottle says, sheer, though you can build it up a little …Read more

Yes, this one is a stinker. Smells like overripe fruit. However, it does become much less noticeable after a while. It try to put this and the Bioclear lotion on well in advance of bedtime so that the smells and stings have time to dissipate and don't distract me from falling asleep...something I cannot stand. I love the brightening effect that anti-oxidant serums have on my complexion …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Jan Marini Skin Research - Bioclear

5.0

Jul/31/2007

I found this when I was looking around for products that had azelaic acid in them. After much experimentation, I found that my skin/acne really responds well to this ingredient but the prescription strength I get from my doc is way too strong for anything but spot treatment. This contains salcylic, glycolic, and azelaic acid. After several weeks, my old acne scars are almost completely gone …Read more

Cleansers - Jan Marini Skin Research - Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser

Jul/31/2007

I really like this cleanser. It is just like Cetaphil but with glycolic acid in it. I don't really rely on it for makeup removal because I refuse to give up my DHC Cleansing Oil. It's the only thing that removes everything without stripping my face. I do follow my DHC with this cleanser and it is also relatively gentle for an acid base cleanser. Others have sulfates which in combo …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Buried Treasure Powerpoint

Dec/06/2006

This is the perfect color for those of us who cannot seem to pull off black eyeliner. Black just doesn't seem to work on me no matter how much I blend or smudge, but this deep brownish black with a touch of dark green and a hint of shimmer does the trick. The MAC PowerPoints have fairly decent staying power but nothing except the gel liners by Stila, BB, or PC truly holds up against the …Read more

Lip Gloss - CLINIQUE - Color Surge Impossibly Glossy - Cream Soda

Oct/26/2006

I'm not usually a big Cliniqe lipgloss fan (glosswear applicators constantly tear up before I finish the tube), however I picked up this color when I went to repurchase my Glossy mascara (favorite). Though the staying power is not quite as good as MAC or BB (I like thick glosses for my dry lips), I will say the texture is nice and they managed to get just the right amount of shine vs …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

Jun/09/2006

The consistency of this is very sheer, more like a tinted moisturizer though not very moisturizing...which is a good thing since my face is an oil slick! It holds up well against my oily skin lasting until almost 3pm which is much better than my usual fave Laura Mericer TM in Nude and beats everything else I've tried with the exception of Revlon Colorstay (beige spackle). I purchased the …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Naturally Glossy Mascara

Great basic mascara. Main selling point for me is that is does not smudge on my oily skin or irritate my sensitive eyes. I usually don't have much luck with Clinique but this is the glaring exception.
