I'm definitely a product and makeup junkie. I use a lot of MAC, bareMinerals, Too Faced and Urban Decay makeup. I like full coverage long lasting makeup because I am very oily and acne prone. I have two jobs and I go to school, so I don't have time to touch up.
This palette smells so good. The colors are great for an every day look, or for a dressed up look. There is a great mix of matte and shimmer shades. The shades come in a great range and blend well. Easy to blend out. The shades are on the warmer side.
One of my favorite primers. It has a really silky feel to it. I first got a sample of it and loved how it felt so I went back and got the full tube. This primer has worked well under pretty much every foundation I own. It is oily skin's close friend. The product hasn't irritated my skin or broken me out. No fragrance to it. A little goes a long way.
This has replaced my Kat Von D 24hr foundation. I feel like it is lighter in feel, with the same coverage as the tattoo foundation. The colors do run very warm, so if you are a neutral undertone, go with a cool shade. Cool beige 10 is what I wear. I love that it has papaya enzyme in it to help improve my skin while I am wearing it. It has also done a fantastic job of keeping me matte. There is silica in the foundation for a built in setting powder! The luxe performance brush is a must. You do need to wash the brush once every couple of uses. And use a good makeup remover to get the foundation off.
My favorite bronzer hands down. I keep reaching for this one every time. I love the colors. The tones are perfect, not too warm or too cool. I use the deep one and then blend with the lighter one for extra dimension. They smell delicious too!
This was my first 24 hour wear foundation and I fell in love with it. I did purchase it before the shade extension, so my current bottle is a little yellow on my skin. This foundation really does create quick full coverage that lasts all day. I have two jobs and go to school full time, so if I have to touch up it up, I don't wear it. The brush that goes with it is a must as well.
The first foundation that has matched my skin color 100%. It's full coverage without giving me a heavy feel. It applies nicely with a dense brush. I don't use beauty blenders/sponges, so I don't know how that would change the application. It's very creamy. I would say it does hold up about 12-15 hours on my oily skin.
Very long wearing without creasing. I definitely recommend setting it with a powder, but that is true for all concealers. I currently have the wrong colors, so I need to get another one. The bottles last a long time. I love the applicator top too. A pump dispenser makes me feel that there is no bacteria in the concealer like the typical doe foot wand.
I have only used the primer from what is shown in the picture here. I love this primer. I have oily skin and really wanted to used bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, but it was too hydrating to stay on my face. I got a sample of this from Sephora as a 100 point option. It changed how Complexion Rescue wore completely. I was amazed. I love that it also helps to fight blemishes as I'm wearing it. The texture of the primer is very luxurious. It feels like a silicone based primer but almost richer. It's very gentle and hasn't caused irritation.
I wasn't thrilled with this product. It is a powdery feeling cream. If I applied what I considered a regular amount of product (a pea sized amount) the product would pile up and rub off when i was trying to apply it. I did not notice any difference with this product and any other primer when it came to my enlarged pores. Didn't help my makeup stay on my oily skin either. I did use and finish a full tube and won't purchase again. If I had to, I would use it again. Just not my first choice.
