    MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

    Excellent product...except I am allergic to it =(

    I love the coverage this product provides. I pick up some of it with my kabuki, add a bit of Fix+ Spray and then apply it. Wow, the finish is great, looks amazing, even though I have some dark spots on my face. Great as a powder foundation or finishing powder. But...wow, did I have terribly itchy skin as soon as I sweated a little. Maybe it is the bismuth, but omg did it broke me out. I almost cried, I loved loved loved how it makes my skin looks, so soft and healthy. So if you don't have problem with most of the ingredients in this product, like bismuth, you should try it. It's a little pricey but totally worth. Packaging is a standard one for MAC, typical compact powder foundation. I am giving it an 8 just for the allergic response of my skin to it. If MAC could come with a product like this that doesn't has bismuth, mica or talk, now that would be perfect.

  • Maybelline New York Mineral Power Finishing Veil Pressed Powder

    I bought this to use with the Maybelline's mineral power liquid foundation, which I really like, and I have to say I am so disappointed. In less than 2 hours I had a super oily T-Zone. I mean, I always have to blot midday, but this was ridiculous. It has to be this powder because I have been using the said liquid foundation for quite sometime now without major oily issues. The coverage this provides is average as this is a finishing veil after all, but I don't like how my skin looks after applying it. I'll stick to my MAC Loose Blot powder or even my NYC Smooth Skin loose powder.

  • Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector

    I have very noticeable pores and this stuff fills them but it doesn't clogged them. IDK if that make sense. I haven't had any breakout while using this. Leaves skin really soft. Aside from that, I still use another primer on top of this, just because I don't feel it make my makeup last. I don't even consider this a primer, I just use it to deal with my pores and it does the trick.

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

    I just got this, the travel size one. It is a good product. Makes your skin feels very soft, velvety like. Makeup lasted all day --mind you, I live in a hot humid environment. But this is way overpriced. And if you want something cheaper, really, try the Monistat Anti-Chaffing gel. They even look similar. Granted, makeup lasted a bit more with this on, but it doesn't justify the price. Not buying it again.

    Sally Hansen Diamond Lip Treatment

    Great product! Strange smell...

    This product is great, love the brush on applicator, my favorite. The colors are really nice and my lips feel nice after using it, not all dry like other lip glosses. It last a good amount of time, considering it's a gloss. Kinda sticky, but not that much. All in all is a perfect product (price is excellent!) but if you have issues with glosses smelling weird, this is not for you. This have an scent that is kinda sweet but mixed with plastic? IDK. Good thing is the smell fades away almost completely pretty fast. The smell, for me, it's the only bad thing about it.

    MAC Full Coverage

    Great product, but don't overdo it!

    I have dark spots on my face. This product just makes them disappear! As simple as that. I just couldn't believe it. I apply it with a makeup sponge, I found I get better coverage and feels more natural. I just use it on my cheeks, where my problems areas are. I would recommend applying it to well moisturized skin, if not it can look "chalky". I have learn not to overdo it, it can get "cakey" in a nano-second. I do have to say the face looks soft when well applied, like if not there. MAC have a decent selection of shades for this product, so that's good. But I have noticed it broke me out a little (got a pimple on my left cheek after a few hours of using it). That's bad. What I'm doing now is simple: I don't use it everyday. Not perfect but good enough!
