    Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin

    Didn't Live Up to my Expectations

    I had such high expectations after reading great reviews of this product, but I found that the colour didn't stay at all. Throughout the day, I can see the foundation moving around on my face. It isn't long until all my redness shows through again. Another point of contention with this foundation is that it doesn't help the situation with pores at all. It made mine look huge. Also, I am really unsatisfied with the range of colours. I am quite light, but pink. Their options for light skins were all very yellow, so the colour isn't even great on me. Also, I hate that there is no pump! Trying to ride it out for a month or so, though, before upgrading. Any suggestions?

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    I cannot say enough good things about this primer! My sister and I have very oily skin and before the primer potion, our eyeshadow and eyeliner was always slipping and sliding into our creases so that when we would get home after school we looked as though we had no make-up on at all. One Christmas, my mum gave us each a primer potion in the original colour, on the recommendation of the salesperson at Sephora. Ever since we began using this, OUR MAKEUP DOES NOT MOVE! I have even been swimming with this primer and eye makeup on and it hasn't moved. It is seriously magical. If you are going to buy this primer, make sure you buy the original natural colour - I find that the ones with flecks of shimmer in them don't work quite as well, although they are still a pretty base.

  • Urban Decay De-slick in a Tube

    I bought this little oil-control cream because I am absolutely obsessed with Urban Decay's Primer Potion. I have really oily skin and de-slick in a tube has helped to cut down on some of that grease. I normally use it right after my primer and let it soak into my skin a bit. After I put my foundation on, I look completely matte! The only thing I don't absolutely love about this little tube is that I find I can still get mid-day grease, so I need to touch up with some blot powder or put a little de-slick on top of the foundation on my nose. I don't find that it disturbs the make-up too much. I definitely wish that the finish lasted longer, because it is beautiful!

    E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeshadow

    Good Little Product!

    I actually quite like these little cream shadows! I find they last well, they have some good colour options, and the price is great. My only complaint is that they are too shimmery and if the rest of your make-up is not completely matte, you end up looking like a disco queen. I will have to try out their long-lasting lustrous eyeshadow!

  • MAC Prep + Prime Skin

    I tried this product on the recommendation of my sister-in-law. It works only marginally better than other primers I have tried. My skin is oily and makeup has a tendency to just slide right off my face within a few hours. My make-up lasts a bit longer than usual with this primer. Furthermore, I don't find it makes my foundation look smooth and poreless. Still on the hunt for the holy grail of primers!

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C

    I received some samples from Mario Badescu in the mail about a week or so ago. This toner came in my package and was specifically designed for my skin type (which is quite oily and prone to blemishes and blackheads). When I first applied it, I thought, "Wow, this is strong, this is going to work!" However, after two days of using this toner I realized that it was actually stripping my face way too much and I was overproducing oil. I have ordered the cucumber cleansing lotion and I am hoping that that product will be effective, but still gentle!

    MAC Blot Powder Pressed

    Good Product, but Too Much Money

    I tried MAC's blot powder on the recommendation of my sister-in-law, who is a hairdresser with a similar skin-type to me. She said that this stuff keeps her oil-free all day. I have been using it for about a month or so now and have found it works only marginally better than the products I have used before. I would also prefer it to be more translucent. So, all in all, a good product, but not better than less expensive options.
