  • Arbonne Herbal Lip Ointment

    I love this product! I use it on my lips whenever I start to get that tingle warning me of an outbreak. If I use it then or soon after nothing appears! I also tend to get fever blisters on my chin (after using another product that has since seriously irritated my skin) and it works wonders there as well. When I have tried using my prescribed medicine on my chin fever blisters it only caused me to break out all around it and I don't have that problem with this stuff and it clears the blisters up very quickly!

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation

    L'Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation

    Not worth a second or even first purchase

    I purchased this after hearing all the rave about mineral makeup. I have to say I regret it but lesson learned. I purchased this in the soft ivory and I must say that it was very close to my skin tone but I found that the product looks darker on then it does in the bottle. First I hated the brush. It's so tiny and actually hurts my skin and scratches my face which is a horrible quality you want in a brush. I regularly wash all of my brushes but found this one to not come clean. You can see clumps of the foundation that seem to stick to the bristles and you have to pull that off with your own fingers. It's quite disgusting to look at honestly. I went to using my bareminerals brush instead. Getting the product out was another problem I had. I found this product to be extremely drying. It made my entire face look very dry no matter how much moisturizer I used before applying. It was also very cakey and within minutes you will find that it has begun to disappear in places only to notice that it in fact shifted and moved into your wrinkles or expression lines. I actually tested this out by watching the clock and not scrunching up my forehead but after only 15 minutes the product had ran into my wrinkles between my brows (I have very few wrinkles after all I'm only 22 but expression lines are there). It also made my skin feel very oily and just an overall nasty feeling after only about 30 minutes of wear. Overall I wouldn't ever recommend this and I will never ever buy this again. Horrible product for my skin!

  • Physicians Formula Beauty Spiral Brightening Compact Foundation

    I purchased this in the Brightening Ivory and found that it blended quite nicely with my skin. It covered a lot of the redness on my cheeks, around my nose and my chin. I really enjoyed this product but I did find that in the more dry areas of my face (my nose especially) that after wearing for a while it would emphasis the dryness and also move into expression lines. So if I wasn't planning to wear it all day then I loved this product but if I was looking for a long wearing I wouldn't recommend it. After a while to I noticed that the darker parts of the makeup felt more clay like after time but this could just be a sign of the product going bad since I didn't use it all the time. I also noticed that as time went on the areas of my face that would get oily through out the day would change to a darker orangey hue but this to wasn't seen when first purchased and I just seen this when the product was almost gone and missing the entire center lol.

  • Maybelline New York Pure Concealer

    I really enjoyed this concealer. I used the light and found that it blended into my skin really well and covered everything. The fact that it heals acne makes this even better. It covered and helped my acne so two for one that's great! My only problem with it is that I have a lot of places to cover and found that I ran through this quickly but that's probably because I used it everyday and on everything (even on my chest in places if I was wearing a low cut shirt) because it worked so well.

  • Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector

    I really enjoyed the highlighter side of this. I love to use the highlighter on my lids, in corner and under my eyes. It works as a great primer for your eyeshadow to if you dust powder over it. I purchased this in the light and found the concealer was a good match for my skin tone. My only problem was with the application. Most liquid forms dry rather quickly and this seemed to take a very long time for me. If I blended the concealer right after applying it seemed to disappear and not hide anything. So I would put the concealer on and allow it to dry up a bit then proceed to blend. However this did work but the drying time was long. Despite that problem I had this concealer wasn't at all cakey, drying and worked really well and blended very well.

  • Maybelline New York Cover Stick Corrector Concealer

    I have used this product up finally! I purchased this in the green hoping to cover scars and redness. It covered them but you couldn't cover up the green. Despite how much I used (which if you use to little it does nothing to hide) it was always extremely noticeable. I also found that it was very drying and cakey. No matter how much moisturizer I used it always felt so dry and actually made my skin flaky. I didn't like this product at all. It does however do what it says and does cover but doesn't perform well after that.

  • Rimmel London Hide The Blemish Concealer

    Rimmel London Hide The Blemish Concealer

    Hides but can you hide it?

    I found that this product did hide blemishes well. I used it in the Ivory shade. I did find that it was a little cakey in some areas on my face but this probably had more to do with how dry my skin is. I also noticed that I couldn't cover the concealer with my foundation well and that I always ended up with a lighter spot on my face that actually emphasized my blemish more this is possibly choice of color though but I wasn't quite the Soft Honey shade. If there were more colors to choose from then it would correct that problem. Overall it worked really well on the smoother portions of my face and covered quite nicely.
