Primer/ Corrector - Avon - Ideal Shade Foundation Adjuster

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2012

Way back in the early 90's there was a foundation adjuster from Avon called 'Summer-Mate Foundation Adjuster' I used and loved. You just added a drop or two of the adjuster to your current foundation to make it darker. There were two tones -- COOL and WARM. It was wonderful because you didn't have to buy another bottle of foundation during the warm summer months when you need …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Xtreme lip cream

3.0

Jul/20/2012

I bought this in the color 'Natural'. The color in the tube looks like a gorgeous shade of pale pinkish-peach however when applied, it is a very opaque pinkish-peach. I was really looking for a more sheer color. It may be ok as light top coat over a darker lip color. The consistency is very nice and creamy though and I detect no scent. May buy again but definitely in a different color.

Mascara - RIMMEL - Lash Accelerator Mascara

Jun/05/2011

I really, REALLY like this mascara for lengthening. I have almost nonexistent, short eyelashes and this mascara really makes them appear much longer and separates very well also. The only downfall for me is if you are going to a wedding, funeral or somewhere where you know you might tear up, you will definitely want to use some other waterproof mascara. It is not waterproof in the least. Also as …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Paula's Choice - Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish Oil-Control Primer

5.0

Feb/09/2011

This is a great instant matte finish primer. I have oily, blemish prone skin and the Shine Stopper works wonders for me. After I cleanse and exfoliate, I apply a pea size of the Shine Stopper to the areas of my face where they are shiny. As I blend it in, this creamy white cream blends into skin to a soft powder-like finish. You are left with a totally matte finish on face. It is not the least …Read more

Other - Paula's Choice - Brighten Up 2-minute teeth whitener

Jan/31/2011

Ok, I'll be honest. When I saw this for the first time on Paula's website, I thought - this would be great if it worked, but i don't see it working for me. I am very fair skinned and am an avid tea drinker so you can only imagine what a tough time I have to get my teeth to look even a little bit whiter. I don't know how, but this balm-like stick really works! My teeth are …Read more

Cleansers - Oxy - Maximum Action Rapid Treatment Face Wash

Jan/31/2011

I remember using this acne face wash when I was in HS way back in the early 80's, (now I'm really showing my age). I don't think they have changed the formulation much, if at all. The consistency is a thin white lotion type of wash with very little to no sud-sing. It was the ONLY thing that cleared up my moderate acne. My daughter is now using this and it is the only wash that has …Read more

Lipstick - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Lipstick in Natural Nymph

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2011

I have always been someone who likes a good nude lip color and the 'Natural Nymph' does not disappoint. It has equal amounts of pink, peach & light beige with a cream finish. As I have gotten older though and with my fair skin color, this truly looks better on me layered on top of a darker color. This color would be beautiful on someone who is darker or with a tan. If you are …Read more

Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Cream Eyeliner - Metallic Olive

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2011

I just recently received the 'Metallic Olive' in the mail and love the color. In the pot, it looks like a dark olive with slight shimmer; not really metallic as the name states. After applied, it has more of a sheen finish. It does have great pigmentation and goes on quite smooth. Also, the staying power is phenomenal! I was expecting a larger size brush with the liner, but it comes …Read more

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

Jan/23/2011

I have several samples of this stuff and must say that as far as the foundation itself, it's great. The consistency is creamy and has just the right amount of slip to it. It really is a wonderful sheer foundation. I also love all of the colors, they are all truly neutral with no strange pink or orange tones. My only squabble is with the shade - Sheer Ivory. It is much darker than any …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Infused Face Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/22/2011

This primer is great! It is a colorless gel with a rather slick feel; It actually felt as though it may be too greasy. However, after applied my skin looked completely matte. You also need only one pump for entire face. I love using this before applying my mineral makeup. It makes your skin appear flawless, and I do not have flawless skin. I don't know how E.L.F. keeps their prices so low …Read more
