NYC City Duet 2 in 1 Lip Color

ProductNYC City Duet 2 in 1 Lip Color
Price: $2.99
Shade: The Cafe Cuties
My thoughts: I dont really like the shade and the color comes off quickly. Its a cool idea, but they need better shades. The name suggests there will be a light brown color and a darker brown color, but its not.

Wet N Wild Megashield Lip Color

ProductWet N Wild Megashield Lip Color
Price: $2.99
Shade:  Ring Around the Rosy 
My thoughts: I LOVE this lipstick. It stays on for hours and still leaves your lips moist. The color is beautiful! not too dark or light, just perfect. It enhances your natural lip color with a little pop.

Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Foundation & Brush

ProductPhysicians Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Foundation & Brush
Price: $14.95
Shade: Light and Medium
My thoughts: I really wanted to like this, but my number one complaint with Physicians Formula is their lack of yellow based shades.


Its like a mousse foundation, very thick. It gives good coverage, buildable. It tends to accentuate dryness. I like the foundation brush it came with.


The light shade was too pink and the medium shade was dark and beige, not yellow.


These have a Try it Free sticker on it.

Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Concealer

Product: Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Concealer
Price: $12.95
Shade: Yellow + Light
My thoughts: I really like this! This works better than my MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20. I used the yellow (liquid) shade under my eyes and blended with my fingertips. I then used the light shade (perfect for my NC25 skin) for any post acne marks I had. It stayed on the whole day. MAC's concealer and makeup in general, tends to come off in patches, not all at once, which I hate. I did not have any issue with the Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Concealer coming off, period.

Great product, but kinda pricey.

FYI: It had a Try it Free Sticker on. Try and find it at CVS or Rite Aid.

Eye Brightener: How the heck do you use it?

Hi everyone!

I bought the Sally Hansen All over Brightener when CVS was having its clearance sale.

It's purple, which helps cancel out dark under eye circles.

However, I don't know how to use it! It doesn't cover anything do I'm assuming you use it in conjunction with your concealer. Here comes the confusing part....

I put on my concealer first and then my foundation. So, do I do the same with the Brightener? Before or after foundation, powder?

Help!
