  • Maybelline New York Shine Free Oil Control Translucent Pressed Powder

    The powder keeps me shine free. It works even better than more expensive blot powders i've tried. I will say however that I have yet to find a powder that I don't have to reapply all day long. I have extremely oily skin and I have to blot almost ten times a day. This product did however give me the most matte finish iv'e ever gotten from a blot powder. I would say this product is even better then the extremely expensive MAC blot powder. I do wish that this product would last longer though.

  • MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

    MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

    Conceals well but i've found something better and cheaper

    I was buying MAC for years because I thought that by buying a more expensive brand i'd have better coverage for my acne. I did like the MAC concealer well enough but, it was expensive, left my skin feeling pretty sticky, and is full of harsh chemicals. It did conceal very well however. I now use Physicians Formula 100% organic concealer. It covers my acne better then MAC and it isn't toxic. It also matches my skin tone better as I am really pale. The best thing about it is that it is much cheaper.

  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

    MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

    Not for pale skin

    I am extremely pale and it is hard for me to find a foundation that matches my skin tone. I have used many different foundations and the lightest shade always left me orange. I thought that MAC would be different but, unfortunantly the lightest shade still left me orangey. Also there are many nasty chemicals in MAC makeup which were making me break out sevearly. I have now switched to Physicians Formula 100% organic mineral foundation. This is the only foundation i've found to match my skin tone. It is much better and cheaper. It gives me a more even finish then MAC ever did. The physicians formula concealer also covers better than MAC's ever did. Why pay so much?

  • MAC Blot Powder Pressed
    1.0

    MAC Blot Powder Pressed

    There are cheaper products that do the same

    I was in love with MAC for a while but recently i've found a much cheaper store bought brand I like. As for the blot powder MAC's is very nice but I find that Maybelline Shine Free works the same if not better. Actually I would say it works better. My face becomes instantly matte when using shine free. As for wear, they both are the same for me. I have extremely oily skin and I would have to use either one of these products several times a day. The MAC powder leaves me cakier then the Maybelline shine free and the price differenece is crazy.

  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear Tinted Moisturizer

    I love physicians formula organic products but, I don't really like this product that well. I wanted a moisturizer that would give me some sun protection and even out my skin tone. I thought this was the answear. The product smells kind of strange and it leaves my skin feeling slightly slimey. I have extremely oily skin but, at the same time I get some dryness around my nose. I feel oilier throughout the day when I use this. It dosen't really even my skin tone that well either. It does however give me added protection from the sun which the mineral foundation wasn't providing by itself. If you have dryness problems perhaps it will work for you.

  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Loose Powder

    I have extremely pale skin and it is therefore hard for me to find a shade of makeup that suits me. I always have to buy the lightest shade. I have tried many store brands and had almost given up on finding a shade that wouldn't make me look orange. I even decided to go for the really expensive MAC makeup and found that their foundation still made me look orange. I also read that MAC has a lot of dangerous chemicals in it. I wanted to try something organic but was really skeptical. I am now hooked on physicians forever. I finally found a pale shade that matches. The foundation doesn't get too cakey either. It feels light and not sticky like most cream based foundations do.

  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear Green and Gorgeous 100% Natural Superfruit Lip Gloss

    The product smells nice and gives a glossy, shimmery finish. The shades are very light and there isn't a wide selection of colors but, I found one that suits me nicely. These glosses are not intended to provide dramatic color. They provide a natural glossy look. It is 100% organic which is a plus. The lightest shade is a good substitute for the more expensive shimmer glosses. The length of wear is typical for an average lip gloss.
