Review for: bareMinerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Anti-Redness Mattifying Primer more...
I loved this. Was light weight and really made my makeup stick to my face for a long time. I noticed as well that my usually pink skin evened out to be a bit more neutral to match my body which I loved. My skin felt great using this. Don’t know if it really made my skin clearer, but it’s a really nice product. I got this sent to me to test and I really like it.
Too small of a brush. Soft! But way to small to get an even coating of product over the face. Would be better for cream contour or such. Does not work very well with the Bare Minerals loose foundation in my opinion
EDIT. I tried this foundation again, using the primer all over my face, and using NYX matte setting spray and GURRRRLLLLLLLLLLLLL. This lasted 12+ hours on my skin. Only complaint was that it emphasized my pores in my cheeks around my nose. But very impressed. This shade is a little dark for me so it’s best for me to use in the summer. But I love. ...................
I’ve never tried a loose powder foundation before, it’s something I never would have picked up on my own. For what it is, it’s nice! But I never reach for it. It holds up well in my T zone, but I found after a couple hours wear it wasn’t holding up every where else- like my forehead and jaw area. That could be because I didn’t use as much of the primer it came with in those areas? I usually focus primer in my t zone. So I will definitely be testing the foundation again, but with the primer ALL OVER. When sent the powder it also came with a little dome top dense brush which is nice, but I don’t like using it for applying the foundation, I think the brush is too small. I’ll be using the brush for other things because it is a nice brush, but it wasn’t my fav for applying the powder foundation. I thought my dense flat top kabuki brush applied better. When using my own bigger brush I feel it dispersed the powder more evenly, the little brush applies the powder very thick and I found it hard to blend out. I didn’t use a setting spray with this so I found I looked a bit cakey and dry, but I still will be using the foundation to figure out how make things work best for me. I think with a setting spray it would melt into the skin more and make it last longer. Will test out again and get back to y’all xx
Bought this at Ulta’s last 21 days of beauty and I bought 2 right away. I was SOOO excited to use it and I expected a lot right away, so initially I was let down because I thought my lashes would look thicker and longer than what I was getting. But I kept finding myself reaching for it and I feel with new mascaras you always have to learn how to use them, and now of course it’s one of my favourites. I love this for everyday big lash wear. But still if I’m looking for insane big lashes, I will use Lancôme’s Monsieur Big
I think it’s a beautiful palette. Perfect for every day wear and can easily make an evening look. Perfect all together colour palette for me. Love the packaging, the giant mirror in it gives it a level up to other palettes I have. One thing I can’t stand though is ever single matte shade I’ve used has SOOOO much fall out in the pan. Which isn’t too much of a problem I guess because I haven’t found the fall out on my face yet, But when you try to beauty on a budget and invest in a high end product.... I just expected not so much fall out.. The shimmers are beautiful. Still is one of my favourite palettes. My favourite for traveling with because I can switch from day to night looks easily.
This is 100% an honest review!!!! I LOVE THIS SOOOO MUCH. Out of everything influenster has sent me to test out, this is definitely one of my favourites!!!! I’m an avid user of coconut oil, so my hair is usually pretty soft in general, but HOLY CRAP this hair mask has blown me away. My hair is the softest it’s been in years. I recommend to anyone looking to give it a try. 10/10 I’m definitely buying it myself. My waist length hair significantly has less tangles than it usually does and it’s so silky and shiny. So lightweight and flowing. The mask was so easy to use even though I felt a little goofy tying it around my head. The minute I rinsed out the product I knew that my hair had been in for a treat, it immediately felt way different than any conditioner had made it feel. I didn’t use any leave in product after towel drying my hair (for the first time since I was 14) and I’m so shocked at the results. Literally in love. I will be buying these as long as they are on the shelves in stores.
Bummed because I was expecting more based off the reviews. This was my first time using these strips, and I’m not happy.... I followed the steps and waited for it to dry, I had to wait a bit more than 10 minutes because it was still wet and gooey. When I pulled it off slowly, lemme say it hurt so bad that I had tears streaming out of my eyes, but I sucked it up, and I didn’t see much gunk coming out on the strip anyway. And, the main reason I’m giving a 1 is because it removed a little bit of skin from my nose. I was wondering why my nose was stinging so much and itching after 15 minutes post strip, and I looked closely and saw there’s a really small thin line where some surface layer of skin was missing. So annoyed.
I bought this during Ultas last 21 days of beauty, and OH MY GOD. I am in love. This makes my lashes so thick and long and voluminous and it’s so comfortable to wear. I love it. So far my favourite mascara I’ve ever tried. It keeps my lashes curled all day and it doesn’t run on me or get flakey. I love the packaging, so sleek and nice to hold. I end up reaching for it every single day
Definitely one of my fav beauty sponges. It’s so soft and I love how big the flat part is for your makeup. Love the price too. Such a cute design!! No wonder it was always sold out from Ulta whenever I went to buy it to give it a try. I like to hold it by the pointed part and use the flat top for foundation, and then angle it to get under my eyes too. I’ve repurchased this since my other one has become ragged with so much use and cleaning. LOOOOOVE it
