I can't believe the negative reviews for this moisturizer. This is my HG. I love the fact it is SPF 30 and light enough to wear under foundation. I haven't noticed any "balling up", and I've been using this for years. I put it on a few minutes prior to apply my foundation to let it soak in. I haven't experienced any breakouts that I'm aware of because of it. If …Read more

Foundations - Neutrogena - Neutrogena Healthy Skin Cream Powder Makeup

4.0

May/12/2008

This is my "go to" foundation. I even recently tried MAC Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15, and I prefer Neutrogena Cream Powder Makeup. As many other reviewers have noted Golden Bisque is a very close match to my NC30 Asian skin. On the downside it doesn't have great staying power on my normal/dry, slightly ruddy skin, and it can look cakey. Lately, I've been using a foundation …Read more

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

I originally purchased this based on MAC SA recommendation and the SPF 50, although I wish that I had read the reviews at MUA first. It was my first primer purchase. I've always been tempted to try one out, since my cheeks are fairly ruddy, and I'm always looking to even out my skin tone. Unfortunately, I don't think it helped my make-up last longer. I bought this along with MAC …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Tried it first along with Prep & Prime Face Protect SPF 50 for a MAC makeover, and I loved the finish at the store. Unfortunately, after wearing it for a few days I found it made my skin look and feel oily, and this after I had a bout with dryness due to changing cleansers. I didn't really like the staying power either even with Prep & Prime. Plan to return this and the Prep & …Read more

Cleansers - Pond's - Deep Cleansing Lotion & Make-Up Remover with Cucumber Extract

Love the smell - a mix of retro and fresh cucumber! And it is completely fabulous for my dry, winter skin. I always struggled with flakes in the winter, but since trying Ponds (from all the great MUA reviews) this problem is very minimal for me now! It hasn't clogged my pores either. It doesn't always remove the most stubborn eye liner or mascara, which happened with Cetaphil, too, and …Read more

Eye Shadow - Jane Cosmetics - Eye Zing in Brownie Points

Jan/25/2008

I bought this as part of the Jane Eye Zing Mix & Match Eye Shadow, Earth Tones, which includes Dream Cream, Hazelnut, Fairy Dust, Me, and Moss. I thought it would be a better value to try out a number of Jane Eye Zings for the first time, since it was BOGO at RIte-Aid at the time. I loved how finely milled the shadows were, but honestly Browny Points was the only one that showed up on my …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black

Jan/25/2008

I've used this for 4 days now, and it's becoming HG material! Great dark black! It applies smoothly, and I've even been using the brush that comes with it. The brush is a little scratchy, but I've learned to dab it on rather than drag it across my lid [ETA: probably best to invest in a better brush]. It doesn't budged all day long on my upper lid, although I haven't …Read more
