Hey there! My name is Shanygne (Sha-Nay) or Shay for short, I love to dance, perform and work out! I am very creative and love doing DIYs, designing flyers, websites, animated logos and much more! I also love decorating my room and find cools ways to give a wall some personality :)
This setting powder feels very naural when applying. I have had other powders that feel very chalky but this was very light and has a nice finish. It is definetly a matt finish and kept me shine free all day. My only concern was that it did look a little grey in some areas. I like that it wasnt to heavy and I feel like my skin could move naturally when I smiled or made facial expressions.

If I exfoliate and apply a face moisturizer before applying foundation then I am pretty good when it comes to dryness and oiliness. I usually dance and sweat a lot while wearing make up so I will give a feed back on how that went while wearing FX foundation.
First of all, I should of gotten one shade darker for my complexion but I was still able to pull of the look by using it as a highlight under my eyes, forehead, chin and nose. I also did a friends makeup for prom and it was her exact color! I will attach all pictures below. p.s I did 2 different looks.
Texture: It was very thick and had heavy coverage. It was great for hiding noticable blemishes! Great for concealing.
Amount: Since I only used it on certain areas I felt that I didnt need to use a lot which was great becuase I dont like to use to much product on my face. As for my friend I wanted a more covered look so I used about 9 dots to cover her entire face.
Smell: At first I felt like the foundation smelt slightly like glue but after it went on my face there was no smell at all. I really liked that because I get crazy about smells.
Lasting: The foundation lasted me all day!!! I went to a graduation, was outside in the hot sun, went to lunch, went to another graduation, got hot and sweaty, then got ready to go to a party at 1am. There wasnt one smudge. All I had to do was apply some powder to take away my shiney sweat! (I got home around 5am and was still slaying)
Removing: This was so easy to remove! I didnt have to scrub which was great for my sensitive skin. All I used was water and dove liquid body wash.
Over all I enjoyed this product and Im pretty happy that I got a lighter color so I can do a calm highlight.
This product saved my curls and I am so happy! A week before using this product I bleached and toned my hair. In result it messed up my natural curly hair pattern. It was very thick and healthy but is a little dry. After bleaching my hair was thinner at the bottoms andstruggled to curl.After using my deep protien treatment I used the iThrive product with my usual hair stayling product just like the directions said on the bottle.Scent 5/5 I love the scent! It is lightly perfumed and smells like you just walked out the salon. Its not over powering and mixes well with other scents from products.Texture 5/5 Awesome! not to sticky or thick. It is very light and does not mess with the other products I put in my hair to style. Because my hair is thinner at the bottom I am happy the weight of the product was light because it did not weight down my curls.Durability 5/5 I feel like this is the first time I feel this way about a product. I went to 2 parites, danced all night, went to the beach 2 times (spring break) and I had no frizz! Usually by the time the humitidy hits my hair from sweating or the salty air from the beach it starts to frizz! In this case my hair kept its curls and looked great! They were very hydrated and had a nice natural shine to them.Usually I sleep with a silk wrap on my head to keep my curls together but I decided to test it out with out the silk cap. My hair was just as great as the time I went to sleep.How I used the product: 1.Did a nice wash and left a protien treatment in. (Ive been usuing this treatment for a while so I know that iThrive was the reason for the great outcome)2.Washed out the treatment, parted my hair in four sections and applied the product on my damp hair from root to end. I used about a quarter size for each section because my hair is pretty long.3. I styled my hair and I let it air dry!4. This was the best thing I ever did for my hair!!! I will put a photo after I got out of the first party I attended :)
Review for: Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal Lotion 5.5 oz more...
Let me begin by saying I love using lotion! I use different types everyday and this is now one of my favorites! This is my first time using goldbonds product and I am very satisfied.
Texture: It is somewhat thick when you squeeze it out of the bottle but it does an amazing job spreading on the skin. You dont have to force the lotion into your skin, it just soaks in and does the job. When on the skin you can feel the hydration. I love that it was thick but not clumpy and it did not leave a thick layer on my skin.
Scent: The scent is very mild and amzing. The mixture of the shea, coconut and cocoa was there but not overwhelming. You can definetlly put on you favorite body spray or perfume without smelling like a hundred ifferent scents.
Durability : As a dancer and someone who works out all the time I am always sweating! But the lotion definelty kept ots trust with me and held on to my skin until it was time to take a shower. When showering I could feel the lotion washing off so I knew it was still there :)
Thanks for reading and I hope this helps :) and thank you for the oppurtunity to review this product A+
