Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear in For Keeps

Nov/11/2010

The MAC makeup artist suggested this for me. For reference, I am NC15. Even though I'm fair, I like lipstick with color. She suggested two options For Keeps and a shade with more color but I don't know what it was called. She pushed me toward the lighter For Keeps shade and in the store I liked it however when I used it several times I found it to be too light a shade for me …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Mascara

I tried this mascara because of the hype and returned it because it made my eyes burn, not to mention the fact that it did absolutely nothing to lengthen or build-up my lashes. I ended up with dark circles under my eyes too. It deserves a low rating. If you like it, great. If you haven't tried it, don't bother.

Not happy with this because the shade was all wrong (Warm Sand), the finish is below average and the coverage is nonexistent. I exchanged the shade for the next lighter one and still couldn't make it work. BIG disappointment. I returned it and glad I did.

Liquid - Bobbi Brown - Luminous Moisturizing Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

May/05/2010

I've used Prescriptives foundation for several years and the entire line was discontinued by EL. I've also used Clinique Dewy Smooth and unfortunately EL has discontinued the fair shade I loved and probably will discontinue the DS formula as well. So, at the suggestion of EL I tried Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing. I'm very disappointed with it and I wish I had tried a sample …Read more

Liquid - Paula's Choice - Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 25

This is the worst foundation I have ever purchased. It separates, even after shaking it thoroughly, is impossible to apply, blend. Sent it back. It's strange that the Cosmetics Cop puts her name on such an inferior product and then expects to maintain her credibility. Definitely gets a frown-face poor rating :(

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Repairwear foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Clinique claims this foundation is for very dry to dry skin, is de-aging (I'm not sure what that means), and provides "all-day hydration." It is full coverage and I suppose long wearing but I couldn't wait to wash it off. For me, it is very drying, irritating and definitely not hydrating. Made my skin feel itchy and scratchy. Too bad because the shade I chose was a pretty …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips

Nov/20/2009

I use this makeup remover basically because I haven't found anything that is much better. It is effective yet gentle and doesn't sting eyes. It will take off all the makeup on your face. It is expensive. It's one of the very few products I like that Clinique makes. I didn't understand before why so many reviewers on MUA were so negative about Clinique but now I do. …Read more

Use caution wieh considering this foundation. I agree with many of the reviewers here that there are no shade selections for fair or very fair skin tone. I used Superfit makeup for several years in Neutral, however eventually it was too dark for me. The SA's tried to match my skintone to Petal, Creamwhip and Shell and none of these shades worked for me. I switched to Dewy Smooth and like …Read more

If ever there was a product that someone should look to MakeupAlley before buying it's this one. Save your money and your time: Sheer Cover is terrible. My daughter is my most honest critic and I value her opinion. After I applied Sheer Cover, she looked at me and said, What happened to your face?! Talk about a line of demarcation! It emphasized my pores like you would not believe. …Read more
