You know how mascaras are always the best a week or so before they have to be tossed?

Well, this tube is like that from first use. The formula is the perfect not-too-wet-not-too-thick stage most mascaras reach after some exposure to air. It gives great volume, the type you get when you've been layering your old mascara for 15 minutes because I NEED MORE VOLUME. It also gives …

Primer/ Corrector - Maybelline New York - Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

Great for winter, when the air is drier. I used this over my moisturizer sometimes when it got really dry.

In warmer weather, this makes my face too oily. It doesn't fill any pores, but it blurs out the skin.

This is a disappointment if you expect it to do everything it says on the tube.

Foundations - NYX Professional Makeup - Mineral Stick Foundation

I really like stick foundations.... after MaxFactor's PanStik, there really wasn't a comparable drugstore option for a while. Maybelline's FitMe shades were too pink and too light on coverage and Revlon's InstaStix just came out recently. Flower was sold only in Walmart, which I don't like going into.

I chose shade 04, which looked like a good match initially …

High points for price and packaging. Stick foundation is super easy to carry around for travel, touchups, etc. and super easy to apply. Though it would be nice if the cap snapped on more securely. Swipe on, blend. I lamented the lack of a stick foundation in drugstores then this came out! Grabbed it as soon as I could.

I have 120, which is slightly pink on me. My summer tan has faded a …

I have been using the waterproof version for a while now so it's time for a review.

PACKAGING: First things first. I hate the applicator. It's huge and bulky. Package itself is also quite bulky but I like the way it tapers at the ends.

FORMULA: Waterproof and smudgeproof. It's a very wet formula. It gives a very "spiky" look to my eyelashes which …

Foundations - REVLON - Nearly Naked Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2013

COLOR: This line's shades are very peachy, more so than their original Colorstay line. For reference, Colorstay in Sand Beige (normal/dry formula) is slightly too dark and pink so I was looking for one foundation that would match even better. I bought Nearly Naked in both Vanilla (too light and peach) and Shell (too peach). I am a pale olive and through these trials of foundations, I can see …Read more

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

I got a sample of this in light/medium and it was more than enough for about two generous layers on my face and one on my neck with a bit left over. The color is almost perfect on me (NC20) and because it was so sheer, it didn't matter that it wasn't an absolute perfect match (it is slightly pink).

It's very moisturizing and great for cold days that suck the life out of …

Hair Color - John Frieda - Precision Foam Color

2.0

Nov/25/2012

Pros:

1) It's pretty expensive for a drugstore product. But the quality of the packaging, instructions, gloves, bottle, dispenser, etc. are all great. They provide a good amount of conditioner in a proper bottle too.

2) Application is very easy. Just smear it all over your head and wait. This product foams up enough to cover a lot of hair, so where I used to use two …

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70

4.0

Nov/11/2012

While this sunscreen is very matte, it is also pretty thick and leaves a white cast on my face. It doesn't combine well with Revlon CS foundation either so the foundation ends up looking spider-web-y on my skin. I did not get freckles this summer so it is effective.

I just bought the SPF55 version to see if it is better with the foundation.

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

Nov/07/2012

1) Con: Shade selection is really strange, this is my main gripe. Revlon CS in Buff is a hair too light for me in the summer but it's perfect in the winter. L'Oreal Lumi doesn't have a W2, which would probably my color. I'm using W3 which works if I do a light layer and blend some onto my neck. My face and neck are lighter than my body though, so maybe this is a good thing? I …Read more
