Exciting Upcoming Reviews!

Please leave me your suggestions in my previous post in the comments section.

In the mean time, i have some exciting new reviews coming up.

  • Physician's Formula 2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum
  • Physician's Formula Mineral Wear talc-Free Mineral Face Pressed Powder
So, I am sure you guys have all heard of the HG Clairsonic ($200). Well, there are dupes (yay). I'm just trying to buy the right one.
  • Neutrogena Sonic Wave: I've read reviews on this and it just vibrates your skin. Pass! $9.99
  • Neutrogena Wave Sonic 2-Speed Spinning Power-Cleanser. This one actually spins and exfoliates. $15.00
  • Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System: $29.99
  • Dove SkinVitalizer - Facial Cleansing Massager
Im leaning towards the Neutrogena Wave Sonic 2-Speed Spinning Power-Cleanser or the Olay, just because I trust Olay, but the Neutrogena one seems similar and is cheaper.

Jordana Glitterama Eyeliner

Product: Jordana Glitterama Eyeliner
Lasting Power: Very good!
Shade:  Black Bash, Midnight Celebration and Bronze Fest
Price:  $1.00 each at Dollar Tree
Overall Review:  Very good eyeliner! Love the color, goes on smooth, like the subtle glitter and great pigmentation.

Princessa Kohl Eye Liner Pencil

Product: Princessa Kohl Eye Liner Pencil
Lasting Power: Amazing! Better than most high end brands.
Shade:  Black and Dark Brown
Price:  $1.00 at Dollar Store
Overall Review:  This is the BEST eyeliner I have ever used. I like the black better than dark brown, but nevertheless, the color is amazing. The black is a very nice pigmented black. It goes on very smooth and stays! I will buy a whole bunch of these! The dark brown is okay, but I wanted it a little bit darker. Get your hands on this eyeliner!!!

Maybelline FIT ME Liquid Foundation

Product: Maybelline FIT ME Liquid Foundation 
Description as Stated on Website: No oils, no waxes, no nonsense. Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be fresh, breathing, natural. Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to show through.
Coverage: Sheer to Light. Could be close to Medium coverage if you really pack it on, but you will be wasting your product.
Long Lasting?: No

Price: $7.00 at Walmart

Shade: 210 Sandy Beige

My thoughts: I was really excited when I first heard about this foundation and all the hype, but I was disappointed. It is Light coverage at best. It doesn't really cover anything. This foundation is made for those who are blessed with near perfect skin...as in no acne, no post acne scaring. If you have an uneven skin tone, then yes, this foundation will do the trick and help even it out, otherwise, forget it. This reminds me of a tinted moisturizer.

I have never had good luck in terms of shade selection with Maybelline. Its either too dark, too light or too pink. They hardly make any foundations that have a yellow toned to it...much less yellow toned foundation for light skinned girls, like us NC25'ers :)

Furthermore, since my skin isnt perfect and the shade didn't match, I will not buy this again. Waste of money.
Compared to NC25: I got this in 210. It is slightly too light. The next shade up (220) is a little too dark. Wish they made 215 :) Then it would be perfect.

E.L.F: Good staying power.

Lipstick Review: L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipstick

Sorry for the late response everyone. I got caught up in a few things, but they are finally settling down...Thank God.

As promised, here is my first lipstick review!

Product: L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipstick

Description as stated on Website: Introducing new infallible never fail lipstick--the first 16 hour lipcolour in a slim colour stick form. Enjoy 16 hours of gorgeous, comfortable, lightweight colour that won’t flake off or wear out. The slim colour stick glides on easily, applies quickly and sets in just one minute. Innovative mirrored package makes it easy to apply and check your lipcolour anytime, anywhere.


Price: $3.00 on clearance from CVS

Shade: Marguerite and Chesnut

Long Wearing: Absolutely!!! It doesnt matter what you do, these wont come off. I had to take it off using baby oil!

My thoughts: I love these lipsticks! They do NOT come off. I tried to take them off my rubbing my finger across my lips right after applying and NOTHING came off. They are a little drying, so make sure you do put on topcoat, but wait after 1 min of applying the lipcolor.
The colors are beautiful and not overpowering. Marguerite is a wine colored lipstick, with sparkle, but nothing showy. Just a hint of color. Chesnut is a beautiful brown with sparkles. Perfect for everyday.
 



Thank you!

Comment please :)
