  • Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector with SPF 30

    I read other reviews that said this BB cream had more coverage but they lie. For a small bottle for $12 I was expecting more performance. It did nothing to cover my redness, discoloration, and large pores. My husband even commented that it looks like I have nothing on my face so why even pay $12 for this. I was hoping this BB cream would make my face glow but it didn't. My face still looked super dull. The product was thick and it had a nice beige tint to this so I was really hoping it would cover my imperfections but it didn't. I thought that applying more would at least cover my face but I had two layers of this on and......my face STILL looked exactly the same like nothing is on my face. Sad to say I had to apply concealer afterwards on top of this to cover my flaws.

  • Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15

    I bought this since I'm not too fond of foundation. Foundation tends to make me break out. This product is like a face moisturizer plus foundation in one so I wouldn't have to apply the extra step of foundation. It gives a nice even coverage and gives me SPF 15, something my facial moisturizer doesn't have currently at the moment. I like how this gives me a nice glow without looking too shiny and doesn't leave my skin greasy or anything. It gives more coverage compared to the other BB creams I've used without being too heavy on my face but keeps it moisturized for long hours. I also like how the product is thicker compared to all the other watery almost foundationlike BB creams. If you want a more matte finish, just apply a little bit of powder on top and you should be fine. I bought this in the light/medium shade and this was just perfect! I get many compliments on this every time I put this on. I've tried many other BB creams and for some reason I ALWAYS come back to this one. Considering the price and the size of the bottle compared to others that are ridiculously overpriced for a teeny bottle, I would say this BB cream is the best. I got this at Ulta for $10.99 and with the $3.50 off coupon if you spend $10 or more I only got this for around 8 bucks so it was a pretty good deal.

  • Lancome Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara

    Lancome Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara

    Not as good as the Definicils.....

    This mascara doesn't thicken or curl my lashes because it has more of a watery base. Also for some reason, this mascara stings my eyes after I apply it and makes me tear up. I like how it doesn't clump, making it super easy for me to swipe some on my bottom lashes and it doesn't seem to smudge as much too. I usually love Lancome mascaras but I think I will save this mascara for the girls with already thick luscious lashes. It's not meant for straight skimpy lash girls like me;-(

  • CoverGirl Lipslicks Lipgloss

    I thought the color was going to be a mauve color with a little shine but it turned out frosty. It totally washed me out! I have to mix this with another darker lipstick color to actually make use of it since i didnt want to let it go to waste. I wish they have better color options that's not a frosty pink or frosty purple color. Also, when I applied it on it was sort of grainy. It didn't apply smoothly and to say that this is a lip balm is an understatement. This has more of a lipstick texture with no moisturizing effect.

  • E.L.F. Luscious Liquid Lipstick

    The name is not true. I bought this hoping it was a liquid lipstick. Instead it's not!!!! It's more of a gloss. A super sticky one too. The color's okay but the stickiness just killed it for me. It has a nice mint smell to it but lacked the cooling sensation. It was so sticky I had a hard time applying it smoothly to my lips. Ugh!

  • Lorac PRO Palette

    Lorac PRO Palette

    The most pigmented eyeshadow I've ever tried.....

    Was debating on Naked or this.......I'm sooooo happy I went with this instead. I love how it gives me the option to use shimmer colors or matte colors. I realized that the Naked palette had more shimmer colors than matte so I decided to go with this. I love the colors of this and it's super soft and velvety and super pigmented. Watch out for fallouts especially the black color since it can stain your cheeks since it's so pigmented. I suggest holding a tissue below your eye to catch the fallouts. I can go from a natural look to smokey eyes in minutes. I use this to contour and highlight my face and to fill in my brows using the espresso color. This is seriously the best multitasking eyeshadow palette I've ever owned up to date. I don't really like the eyeshadow primer that comes with it though. I prefer the eyeshadow primer potion instead since it gives more intensity. The only bad thing I have to say about this is that I wish the gold color was more gold and not so closely related to the light bronze color. They are so similar in color that you can't really tell the color difference when applied to the lid.

  • CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Corrector

    CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Corrector

    Was expecting more coverage.....

    For a concealer it doesn't really cover well--almost like having nothing on. I like how the product is very smooth and there's a whole lot in a tiny jar. It will surely last a long long time. But because it didn't live up to a concealer for my undereye dark circles, I had to return this.

  • Olay CC Cream Total Effects 7-in-1 Tone Correcting Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15

    I really wanted to like this since it was branded as "Number 1 Bestselling CC Cream." I was highly disappointed. The packaging is super neat and beautiful but when I applied this on, it was more brownish-orange than I expected. I bought the light-medium shade too. It also didn't provide as much coverage as I wanted it too. It looks like a tinted moisturizer but the color barely shows up but leaves orangey-brown patchy spots on my face. I like the thick texture of this and the lightweightedness of this product but I had to return this since this was pretty pricey at $20 and since it wasn't my shade, I wasn't planning to use this after one time of trying this on.

  • Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Combination to Oily Skin

    I think after many complaints of the original BB cream being too oily, Garnier decided to make a new version for oily/combo skin. I really thought this was going to be better but I guess not. It does leave a matte finish but I hate how the product is too runny like water. The texture is nothing like the old one. I also find these shades to be a little bit lighter than the original version. This is also not moisturizing enough. I still have to apply moisturizer on top of this afterwards. Such a big letdown! Will go back to using the original one.

    Garnier The Brusher Gel Cleanser

    Pretty nifty design.....

    I love the flexible soft bristles on this but I find the product kind of hard to squeeze out. It left my skin pretty dry and tight once I washed this off. The gel I find to be kind of watery compared to their other gel cleanser products.
