  • Almay Clear Complexion Concealer

    Almay Clear Complexion Concealer

    great with careful use

    long lasting concealer! I use under my eyes under my foundation and it lasts longer than my $30 foundation. However, you need to let it fully dry or it will get clumpy if you apply foundation/powder over it. And if you have super dark circles one unfortunate morning and apply a lot to fully cover, it will never dry so it will inevitably be clumpy. Still, it is super effective when used carefully.

    better than most physicians formula products !

    this DID make me happy because i was pleasantly surprised that the color was perfect for me and not too shiny or pink. blends well, lasts well, totally worth stealing from my mother :)

    Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    wanted to love this...

    but i could not. did not blend well for me, and when i was trying to blend it would take off my foundation! it did last long, but i looked like a clown because it would NOT blend with my powder and foundation. kind of looked like lipstick on my cheeks!

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    I have been totally underwhelmed by this mascara a few times. I do not see how it has such a massive 'cult following'. Color wasn't that great, volume and length not amazing, dry formula that got clumpy in the bottle. It might be cheap but its not even worth the minimal amount of money for me.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    the color was vibrant and it was decently 'voluminous' but the smell i could not get over. I am usually not deterred by the smell of products, but I could smell this all day. Maybe I used too much, but that was how much I needed to get the desired effect. Even tried to give this away to my sister after not being able to tolerate the smell after a few days, and she would not accept it because of the stench.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    the color is vibrant but this smudged under my eyes immediately. I could not seem to get any length from this mascara, and could not build length or volume with layers. Didn't even finish the tube.

  • Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Dior Diorshow Mascara

    always go back to this mascara!

    after using a tube of this pricey mascara, I decide it isn't that awesome and end of buying about 3 different $10 tubes of mascara that end up being garbage compared to Dior show. You don't realize how awesome it is until you try some other smudgy, stinky, ineffective mascaras. The only downside is it gets kind of dry about 3/4 of the way gone, and the brush gets clumpy and hard to use. I do love this mascara but I have heard "they're real" by Benefit is also just as awesome, and that Diorshow Iconic has the same good results but not as dry. However, this mascara is totally worth the money after fussing with others!

  • Almay Nearly Naked Loose Powder

    Almay Nearly Naked Loose Powder

    Best powder for the price!

    I use this powder to set my foundation and fill in the gaps. Looks natural and not heavy at all. Best to put on with a kabuki brush for light but setting coverage. I really don't care for any other Almay products but this is an exception !

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Light

    love love love this foundation. It has great coverage but doesn't look like you have painted your face. Blends very well into skin, you don't have to worry too much about blending it with your neck. It is kind of a dry formula so I drop a bit of cheap more liquid-y foundation with it to not only use less of the expensive stuff, but so that it glides on smoother.

  • Benefit The Porefessional

    Benefit The Porefessional

    makes a visible difference!

    of all the primers i have tried this one makes a visible difference! They say you can put it over or under your foundation, but i find that when used over it takes the makeup off. The only downside is that it doesn't seem to last long, my skin looks flawless for a couple hours but not much longer. For me its not an everyday primer because its too pricey to not make it through my work day.
