Liquid - Maybelline New York - SuperStay 24HR Makeup - New Version [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/25/2011

I'd heard amazing things about this foundation, especially from other dry-skinned girls, like pinkiecharm on youtube. Since my other foundations have been breaking me out lately, I decided to get my hands on a bottle of the Superstay, which turned out to be more difficult than I thought. I had to try about four different drugstores to find the lightest shade, Porcelain Ivory. I finally …Read more

Liquid - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20

Mar/25/2011

This is a fantastic foundation which I would wear all the time...if it didn't make me break out. It has medium coverage (I almost don't need concealer for my redness), and has a dewy finish! That is a rare combination in a foundation.The lightest shade is a tiny bit too yellow for me, but it is a great everyday foundation because it has SPF and doesn't cause drying or emphasize …Read more

Powder - L'Oreal Paris - Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2011

I bought this at a grocery store for around $11. Compared with the Cover Girl and Maybelline mineral foundations, this was the only talc-free one. Unfortunately, this is not a very portable container, because the sifter is free to sift the powder all over the place.

The brush is actually pretty soft, considering that it's made from natural hair, which is usually prickly. The brush …

Shampoo - Yes To - Yes To Cucumbers - Color Care Daily Makeover Shampoo

Dec/26/2010

This shampoo is fantastic. It leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean but not stripped of moisture. My roots have more volume to them than they did with the Alba Gentle Nourishing Shampoo (also sls, silicone and paraben free), and my hair is left soft and shiny. There isn't any leftover residue, just nice clean hair. The shampoo smells like a plastic cucumber, but the smell doesn't last on …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - Age Defying Makeup with Botafirm SPF 15 for Dry Skin

Dec/23/2010

I bought this for $11 because I love the Age Defying concealer and thought maybe the foundation would be just as good. But this foundation just won't last on me and it breaks me out. I got the shade 01 Fresh Ivory. I also wear MUFE HD in 110 and Revlon CS in Ivory. This matches my skin pretty well, but because it's moisturizing and has a dewy finish, it only lasts 4, maybe 5 hours. Even …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microperfecting Primer in 5 Blue

Dec/16/2010

This is a great product for covering up redness! It doesn't completely cover it, but it does a great job. I'm pretty sure that I have mild rosacea (the butterfly pattern on my cheeks and nose), and I need a product that will work with my foundation (Revlon Colorstay) to make my skin tone even. But this product breaks me out. :( I'm sensitive to silicones so I had to return it …Read more

Moisturizers - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Oil Blemish Fade Night Lotion

Dec/11/2010

Like some previous reviewers, I found this lotion to be very drying. As soon as I apply this lotion, my face feels dry and tight. I used it for about a week but I didn't see a change in the mild redness on my cheeks. It's a great silicone-free product for oily skin, but I won't be repurchasing.

Primer/ Corrector - Fyrinnae - Velvet-gel silica primer for dry skin

Nov/02/2010

I hoped that this would be a great primer. Unfortunately, it made me break out, and doesn't control any oil. I think it does make my foundation go on smoother, but any primer will do that. I would have also preferred a squeeze tube instead of the jar packaging. That said, Fyrinnae has great customer service and ships fast. This product just didn't work for me.

Update 9/24/10
The secret to applying this foundation is using a wet synthetic round foundation brush. I use the one from ecotools.

Original post:
The shade C1 Alabaster is the best color match for my skin that I've ever found in any type of foundation, and that's the only reason that I put in the effort to apply this (I'm an extremely pale redhead, NW 5 or …
