It holds moisture in your skin while adding an iridescent natural light to your skin to brighten it up. You don't need much …

I bought this mascara last week on Friday in red carpet black. I first applied the primer than mascara. My lashes looked long with more volume. Yet after 1 hour of wearing it my eyelids began to itch really bad. My left eye became super dry feeling, and the flakes of the mascara were falling into my eyes.

Fast forward a week later. My eyelids are getting applied Dr prescribed …

First let me say I am a dark skinned black woman with super oily skin. Heck you could fry chicken on it after a few hours with the amount of oil my sebaceous glands produce.

Well I wanted a light sheer coverage foundation, that I could use with my Ole Henricksen face wash, toner, Murad mattifier and Becca ever matte poorless priming perfector. With the help of Makeup Alley reviews I …

I had been waiting for this universal red lipstick praised by so many in early reviews by Fenty. I orded it online at 12am from Sephora, then ran to Sephora at Jcpenney at 2pm to try it out.

I loved the soft feel of the lip paint, wonderful staying power, and high pigment. You don't need to apply much of this product to get the "bam" affect.

Needless to say …

I read a review in Cosmopolitan magazine about this cheap but wonderful foundation that had sold out, and could not wait to try it.

I ordered the serum foundations in the color of 3.2R. I was skeptic due to me having very oily skin. After I washed my face with the Ole Henrickson balance line, and applied my Bare Minerals primer I tried it out.

The color is amazing. It …

I purchased the darkest one of this product which is light and very airy. Too bad the coverage only last 3-4hrs. With an average price of $39.99 save your money. It is supposed to assist with oily skin, but not in my case. Even with their primer my face was oiled up and color had wore off. This product could be so much more if consistency was added.

I bought the darker skin tone colors at Walmart of Deep Mocha 504 and Warm Caramel 502. I'm glad they were only $4.99 because they are aweful. It's thick, pasty, and within 4 hours the foundation color was gone from my cheeks, forhead, upper eyebrow area, and nose. Glad I only wasted $10.00
