  • MAC Liquid Eye Liner

    it' s precise, it's black and it sticks all day. unfortunately i cannot master a proper line and will return to using the more forgiving pencils.

  • MAC Opulash Mascara

    MAC Opulash Mascara

    looks good but the brush is too big

    this mascara goes on and stays on well, but the large rounded brush is too hard for me to maneuver. I always end up stabbing myself in the eye ball or making a mess under my lower lash line. it's just too much for me.

  • MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

    MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

    Good for good skin days

    If I'm having good skin and I want some light coverage that will help absorb oil, then this is a good choice. It also works well as a final layer on top of the Studio Fix Fluid if I need to look perfect.

  • MAC Blot Powder Pressed
    8.0

    MAC Blot Powder Pressed

    Does a good job

    I use Mac Studio Fix fluid foundation and I need a powder to set and hold my foundation. I also have oily skin, so this powder helps to keep my complexion matte. It settles well on my skin without looking cakey or dry. It does however settle into the creases under my eyes, but it's easy to swipe out with a q-tip and leave me looking air brushed and lovely.

  • MAC Oil Control Lotion
    6.0

    MAC Oil Control Lotion

    It's ok, but it makes my face break out

    This seems to keep my face oil free for a bit, but it makes my face break out, so it's not worth it for me.

  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

    I'm really digging this mascara. I have short, thin eyelashes that are nearly invisible without mascara. Finding a mascara that is easy to apply, makes my lashes look thick and long as well as staying put has been a challenge. This one seems to be doing a really good job of all of those. So far, no smudging, although it is thick and somewhat clumpy to apply. However, I like dramatic lashes and they look good to me. I have occasionally seen a few flakes at the end of the day, but so far a good performance compared to other mascara that I've used in the past.

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

    I received a bottle of this product for testing and was instructed to use for 48 hours, then write a review. For background, I am 35 years old, have oily, acne-prone skin with uneven tone and discoloration (dark spots, red patches, etc). This is my first experience using a CC cream. I do have and enjoy using BB cream, so I was expecting a similar experience. I did use my normal jojoba oil for moisturizing first as it is the only product that keeps my face from turning into an oil slick by mid-morning. After applying my standard 3 drops of jojoba I proceeded to apply 1 pump of the Olay CC Cream. It is very light and absorbs quickly. I did not have any concealer properties and did leave my skin unusually shiny. I applied my usual makeup over top and my skin appears hydrated, but looks no different than normal. I do have some wrinkles around my eyes and lots of tone correcting is needed. I'm not convinced that 48 hours is enough time to really make a determination about this product so I'll continue using it and post additional updates in the future if possible. As a lightweight moisturizing sunscreen it is performing well and I would recommend it, but I can't speak to the other benefits quite yet. Update: It has now been weeks that I've bee using this and I have to say that my skin is markedly improved. It does clear up dark spots and evens out my complexion. On days that I mountain bike, I just toss this on and it looks as good as makeup. The coverage is very light, but it keeps my skin looking fresh, healthy and I'm loving my more even skin ton.

  • Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen

    After years of wearing MAC Studio Fix fluid I began looking for something lighter. I have reddish, blotchy skin that gets very oily in my tzone leaving me with a mess of foundation that slides off around 3pm. I was amazed at how smoothly this goes on, how buildable the coverage is where I need it and how perfect it leaves my complexion. After 3 weeks of using it my skin looks better than it's ever looked before. No more breakout, no more oil slicks. If anything it is a little bit drying, so I use 2 drops of jojoba oil before applying and my skin is perfection. I commute 20 miles a day by bicycle, but over 2 hours by train. Last Friday night I went out after work and didn't reapply my makeup and still looked fantastic. I couldn't ask for anything more in a makeup.

  • Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

    Good, blendable coverage that covers up and stays put. It is particularly good at hiding red spots, which I am prone to.
