    Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Instant Perfecting BB Cream SPF 15

    Super smooth skin, but odd orangey color

    I have a bit of mixed feelings about this BB cream. It does feel good on skin- it is very light, moisturizing and non-greasy, evens out minor discoloration, in fact makes skin look very smooth, pretty much perfect, but the color is quite dark and orangey, so looks very unnatural on lighter skin tone. I would like it much more if there was some selection of shades, or if this product was lighter. I can't really use it alone unless I get some tan on my face, which really isn't my goal. What I end up doing is I'm using it as a primer under my normal, lighter foundation, and then my face is smooth and flawless. But this is not the idea behind BB cream really. The package is nice. Fairly large tube, so you get a good amount of product. It is good for medium- dark skintones, but ladies with pale skin should probably stay away. After using this product for several months, I've decided to update my review and add another star and more good words, because I really like how it feels and looks, it could be absolutely perfect flawless skin tool if they made an option for pale skin. Kinerase, please, give us some options, and I'll be buying this over and over!

  • Revlon PhotoReady Concealer

    This concealer is really very nice, I'm very excited about it. First of all, it goes on smooth, and is very blendable, just need to apply some to the back of your hand, so that it softens and melts a bit (it is a stick concealer after all, those are better when applied not directly to the problem area), then you can apply it either with a concealer brush or with your finger- just tap it lightly onto the problem area. It has wonderful coverage, and is very buildable. Doesn't look cakey at all and lasts all day, especially if you apply a little bit of powder to settle. I have rather pale skin, and I really like 003 Light Medium for covering up dark circles and any redness, because it has a bit of yellowish tint, that cancels out all the unattractive and unwanted tints in my skin. This concealer is also good for dry skin and sensitive skin around eyes, because it feels very light and glides right on. The packaging is very nice and sturdy. It is a great product, and the price is good. Worth every penny. Will purchase this concealer again.

  • Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

    Very nice lip butter. Goes on smoothly and evenly. I have it in 2 shades, and both are equally good quality. The pigmentation is rather good for lip butter, but keep in mind that it's not like regular lipstick, it has more of a sheer color, which is nice for more natural, casual look. With this product you also get nice glossy finish. The lip butter doesn't taste like anything (which is a plus), and smells good, in my opinion. The packaging is very pretty and sturdy, doesn't fall apart in the purse, and is pleasure to hold. I didn't feel like this product was extremely moisturizing, it's alright, but not wow in that aspect. Overall, I like it a lot, there is a good selection of shades. I'd recommend it to a friend, and will buy it again for myself.

  • Revlon Lash Potion Volume + Length Mascara by Grow Luscious

    When I tried this mascara the first couple of times I didn't like it at all, because, for whatever reason, I couldn't get the volume going. But after those couple of uses the mascara must have distributed itself right on the brush, and my lashes looked gorgeous without any effort. The mascara is really great for adding lots of volume and length. I just apply a couple of coats, and voila- fabulous looking lashes. I don't get any clumping at all. Actually, I find this brush to be great for adding volume AND separation. It is one of those big brushes, but it's not too soft like some other brands have them, so the lashes don't stick together and don't clump, especially if you position it right. I have mine in black, and it is nice, pigmented color. The formula is good- no irritation on sensitive eyes. A big plus is that this product is easy to remove- just some facewash, and it is pretty much gone- no heavy-duty scrubbing. Now the bad part... The mascara flakes. It is not horrible, but still... So while I love the effects, and the brush, and the pretty tube, I'm not quite sure I'll be repurchasing, cause I don't like having to check whether my mascara is landing under my eyes. So all in all, the jury is still out. Maybe Revlon will fix the issue...

  • Revlon ColorBurst Lip Gloss
    10.0

    Revlon ColorBurst Lip Gloss

    Love the gloss! It is the BEST.

    This is probably the best gloss I've tried. It is sooo much better than all the Cliniques, Lancomes, etc. It has fantastic pigmentation, it is super smooth and goes on evenly. I love it how it makes my lips look and feel very supple and sexy. The finish is nicely glossy, looks like a high-end product. Zero clumps, zero stickiness, and zero dryness. It actually hydrates the lips very well. It lasts quite well for gloss too. Yes, you might want to reapply after you eat, but it's not like it just vanishes from the lips out of the blue. The gloss is not scented (I have one in Bordeaux now), and doesn't have any yucky taste most glosses do. The packaging is simple and sexy, made very well, and I haven't had any spill-overs so far. The applicator is very nice, makes it easy to apply the right amount evenly. This gloss is amazing, can't emphasize it enough. Will be buying over and over. Perfect for ladies, who want gorgeous, full, sexy lips.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Lip Gloss with Mega Shine

    This gloss is alright, but I have mixed feelings about it. I got 2 colors - Nude Peach and Beige. I like Beige a lot- nice shade, goes on smooth, not sticky, has nice finish. Nude Peach on the other hand is pretty terrible. It goes on in clumps, the color is uneven, and is overall blah, not even shiny. The package is not too great, the gloss keeps getting out of the tube, and onto everything. Will not repurchase, since I don't want to get another clumpy gloss.

  • Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup

    I like most Revlon foundations, and this one is no exception! I love, love, love it! It has nice selection of colors, including shades with yellow undertones (like vanilla). The foundation is very light, and feels great on skin, and even at the end of the day I don't get a feeling like my face has suffocated. It goes on very smooth, and has very natural dewy finish that makes face look really fresh and well rested. Despite of being light, the foundation does a great job covering flaws and imperfections, and it is also buildable, so if you want more coverage, you can layer it gradually, and it still looks good. The only thing I didn't like about it much is the packaging- it's just a glass bottle with no pump, so I just pour some on the back of my hand and then apply it either with a brush or just with my fingers. And no primer needed- works ideally on clean, moisturized skin. I highly recommend this foundation, it is absolutely perfect, and is very affordable. It is really great on dry skin, since it doesn't accentuate dry patches, but I'm sure it is good on oily skin as will with a bit of powder. Will undoubtedly repurchase this one, I'm soooo in love!

  • E.L.F. Bronzer
    7.0

    E.L.F. Bronzer

    Nice bronzer

    This is a good bronzer for summer, when you want to add a bit of extra glow to the skin. There is a nice selection of colors. And I love the packaging- a very sturdy, sleek compact with a nice big mirror, which you rarely get at that price point. I'm taking a couple of stars off for 2 reasons. First, the pigmentation is not impressive, I can barely see any color on my skin when I use it, and that's a very common minus of cheaper makeup. Second, it is shimmery, so doesn't always look so good- acceptable for summer and tan skin, but not so great for winter or if you want to contour your face. Good product for the price, but not for everyone.

  • E.L.F. Studio Complexion Brush

    It is a great brush for a very low price. It is fairly large, and the bristles are rather dense, and are soft for a non-natural-bristle brush. I like that the brush also looks and feels nice, not like a $3 brush. I've had it for over a year, and use it regularly for plain powder or HD powder. I've been washing it pretty much every week too, and it holds up perfectly- no shedding, doesn't lose shape. Very happy with the brush, and recommend it to those who don't want to spend much on a brush, but want a good quality product!

  • E.L.F. Studio Small Angled Brush

    This is a very nice brush, I use it for gel eyeliner, and applying eyeliner hasn't been easier! It is also great for applying brow-shadow, really helps to fill in the gaps while leaving brows look very natural. The brush is easy to wash, is made well, and keeps it's shape. The bristles are firm, but not at all scratchy. Fantastic product for the price.
