Look good, do good, feel good! That's my motto and what I tell people to motivate themselves to perform their best at whatever it is they are compassionate about. I love learning about innovative products that will improve the quaity of people's lives. My heart is in traveling, my joy is creating, and I have an eye for beautiful things.
It's a nice light pink w/ some gold sparkles and looks good alone or on top of lipstick. This makes my lips soft, not sticky or gooey. My hair will stick to it if there is harsh winds blowing but not as bad like other lip glosses. The light vanilla smell is pleasant. This is much better than Clinique's lip glosses which caused my lips to become sticky and flaky.
The medium-dark is perfect for my nc35 skin tone but does not keep my shiny face matte for long. I want to say this makes me shinier. I get shiny after 2hrs. vs. Maybelline's dream matte powder or Cargo's hi def powder or Mark's mattenificent powder, I stay matte a little longer and don't have to blot as much. Mark's mattenificent powder (Avon) is a great cheap alternative if you are looking for something like Mac's blot powder.
I find myself picking this up everyday instead of my shiseido's curler. This works great for my almond shape eyes. My co-worker has long lashes, big eyes and she curls this by increments. 3 curls from left, mid, to right and her lashes looked great. I have smaller almond asian eyes and one curl makes all my lashes stick up. However, my sis-in-law has round eyes with short lashes and she didn't like it. She's sticking to her Shu uemura. I guess with the way this curler is made, it would be hard to pick up short lashes. Oh well, for the price you can't really complain.
Perfect with porefection baked perfecting powder for a silky-smooth, poreless-looking finish. This is non-drying, fragrance and paraben-free formula is infused with salicylic acid and antioxidants to help skin appear youthful, healthy and clear. Get a flawless, smooth, matte finish. *Good for all skin types, including sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin. Apply by using powder puff or brush.
Personally I think this is a great powder for someone with oily, acne-prone, combination, or someone with visible pores. It gives light coverage alone and sets well with liquid foundation. My pores appeared smaller and it was matte for a couple of hours then became mildly shiny. My face broke out from exercising and going to the sauna and this helped! Within a week my skin cleared up and I like that it was matte-normal finish. I wish it came with a sponge or velour puff with a compartment but it doesn't. I rotate with this and my too faced powder foundation. Sometimes I set it on top of my too faced powder and other times I set it on top of my estee lauder double wear light liquid foundation. Overall it's a good everyday powder. I have light-med skin tone, nc 35 and I wear the PF3.
I like this better than the UDPP because it feels less dry. It goes on very soft like a lotion and the pigment of my eye shadows are vibrant. Lasting power is great. Always shake it up before using because there can be oil separation when laying flat for awhile.
I have been using this makeup brush cleanser for years. It is by far the most easiest way to clean your brushes. I find it works well when I spray it and massage the brushes then rinse off with water and repeat until the water runs clear. This product is a staple of mine. I could not ask for better!
