    Almay Truly Lasting Liquid Makeup

    Good staying power, but too heavy going on

    I don't usually buy longwearing foundations, but I tried this because it was on sale for some ridiculous price, like $5. The buff shade suits my Asian skin well, although something just a touch darker with the same yellow undertones would be even better. The foundation looks natural, lasts through the day, and has SPF 15. However, it is pretty thick and goopy going on, which makes it difficult to blend. I feel like I really have to rub my sponge on my face to get it to spread. I might buy it again on sale, but not otherwise.

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Looks and feels natural

    I really like this foundation overall because of its ease of application, good coverage, and natural finish. It lasts well too. The only problem I had was with the shade -- the "light" shade didn't really suit my skin tone because I'm Asian, and it was still too pink for me. I think it would be great if they expanded the shade selection.

  • Avon MagiX Face Perfector SPF 20

    Avon MagiX Face Perfector SPF 20

    Great natural looking base

    I loved this the first time I tried it. I think it works great under mineral powder foundation. I can't imagine rubbing on liquid foundation after applying Majix. It didn't seem to work as well after a while, though, as if my skin got used to it or something and started producing more oil! Maybe it's just the weather getting warmer though. I just wish the bottle weren't so small (or I wish the price were lower)! But great product overall.

  • Avon Slick Tint For Lips

    I haven't used this in a while, but as far as I can remember, I could never get past the old-fashioned strong lipstick smell. That kind of killed it for me. I would like to use it if I didn't have that smell. Avon's lip balms in general tend to dry out my lips though.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mistake-Proof Marker Eyeliner

    I had high hopes for this eyeliner when I put it on. I found application with a marker-type tip to be really easy, maybe because I'm a teacher and I use marker all the time! I loved the way it looked on (I got the dark brown shade), but I would like it even more if it had the sponge tip for blending that some eyeliners have. Also, like most eyeliners, it didn't stay put for me.
