All time favorites for Face

Hi dollies!
i have so many favorites but i looked threw my collection and really picked out the ones that i always seem to go back to

Primer: Rimmel London Fix and Perfect foundation primer- this primer is a silky smooth consistency and has some peach undertones, really makes a difference in how my makeup applies.

Foundation: Revlon Colorstay pressed powder- THE BEST powder foundation on the drugstore line! no powder can beat this. i love the full coverage it gives and the flawless application of the product. ( this is my foundation and my powder) xD

Concealer: Loreal True Match liquid concealer- this was the hardest pick for me! i looove so many concealers but this one does everything you want it too, it even covers up my horrible dark circles! definitely a holy grail item of mine :)

Blush&Bronzer: Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing powder- this was the another toughie for me! i love my blushers but this one is so beautiful, Ive really been wanting NARS Deep Throat and Orgasm but this ELF one is a mixture of both! gotta love it! The bronzer in the compact is my favorite too, its a bit to dark for me but with a light hand anything possible ;)

My next Series will be the Eyes! hope you enjoyed this :)
and thank you to picturesqueMU for inspiring me!

Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow Duo

Hello All! >.< sorry for my MIA. I am back though! allergies have been driving me crazy. Im excited to review this awesome eyeshadow duo by Clinique (in beach plum 102) for you though! xD

Price: 17.50
Aviable at: Clinuque counters,

~Claims to~
- Deliver creamy, intense colour in one stroke
- Light weight
- Long lasting
- Layerable and blendable

This can be a bit on the pricey side for an eyeshadow duo, but in my opinion its worth every penny. Packageing is sleek, styleish and super cool, Also has an awesome mirror. You get 2.2 grams of product which is a huge amount for this product because you only need very little. It deffently delivered a creamy intense colour for me, i tried this product with out a primer and with my favorite primer UDPP. Worked both times amazingly, you dont need to put a lot of effort into this product i just touch the brush on the shadow and get an awesome amount of pigmentation. It does seem to be very light weight on the lids. I foiled these colours as well and still saw amazing results and didn't feel like i was even wearing eyeshadow. This product can surely be layerable and very blendable. This is one of my holy grail products. Its super creamy texture and is great for anyone willing to spend some money on an awesome duo. The colours i got (Beach Plum) are compairable to Stila kitten eyeshadow (my total favorite) and the purple colour being compairable to Mac Very Violet in a way. Hope this was helpfull and thank you for the 2 followers i have, Nee and PicturesqueMakeup im very big fans of you both. :D

Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation

Hello All! >.<
Today I've decided to review Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation! I purchased this foundation in the shade light1 ( Porcelain Ivory).

Price: around 10.00
Avaible at: Most Drugstores

~Claims to~
- Provides perfect skin coverage
- All day hydration
- Makes skin look clearer, smoother and more radiant
- Light weight buildable coverage

To me, Maybelline made this foundation sound a lot better than it really is. But somehow this product still managed to win Oprah's Magazine and Spring makeup O-wards for 2008. hmm. Well, for me this foundation was just okay, not the best, not the worst. It did provide pretty good coverage but definitely not nearly as good coverage as like Mac Studio Tech or anything but a fairly good coverage. It is very runny but i think that is because of the amount of water in the product because this is to pose to be a hydrating foundation(this foundation is water based).It didn't seem to make my skin look clearer just my normal skinned self, my face did tend to have a glow though. It's not like other foundations on the line that really just have all matte finishes but this one is matte but glowing on the skin. Packaging is just okay, surely not the worst Ive seen but because the formula is so runny you need to be careful about how much your squeezing out. I really don't recommend this foundation for people with large pores like myself. It makes them look very obvious and clearly larger than they appear. I do recommend this foundation for anyone who would like a hydrating foundation with a medium coverage who has small pores and not a lot of flaws, than this foundation is a good one to get. Over all this foundation is just okay for me and my skin. Nothing to special but not to bad. I hope this was very helpful to you all! :D.
Also. I think it may be slightly comparable to Mac's Face and Body Foundation( also water based) which i really want to give a shot. It is meant to be a hydrating foundation as well. :P

N.Y.C Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder

Hello everyone!, I bought this bronzer in the shade 720A Sunny ( which i believe is the only shade NYC currently has).

Price: 2.99
Available at: Most drugstores

~This product claims to~
- Give your skin a sun kissed look.
- Leave skin with a natural looking bronze

All i have to say is WOW. This product has become one of my holy grail items in my collection. I use this for contour everyday in the hollow of my cheeks and i love it for this purpose. It is the perfect shade for all skin tones all though if your darker you may have to apply a bit more. With this product you really need to use a light hand, I find this with all contour/Bronzing powders as well. As far as using it as a bronzer goes i really like it. I don't wear much of matte bronzers i usually go for slight shimmery kinds for all over my face but it seemed to do pretty well for this purpose as well. I do prefer it for the hollows of my cheeks though i find that it doesn't look as nice as when i use my shimmer bronzer on me though but that's just because i don't use it for the all over bronzing purposes as much. If your into matte bronzers, or looking for a great contour powder this product is definitely for you.
Hope this review was helpful! more to come. Let me know if you have any questions.

Neosporin Lip Health

Price: 5.39
Aviaible at: Most drugstores

~This product claims to~
- Lock in moisture
- Reduce scaling
- Improve healthy lip tone
- See visibly healthier lips in only 3 days

To start off, Before i purchased this item my lips were terrible. I had started such a bad habit at the time as well making the problem no better. I picked at my lips, no idea why i did so but i did making the problem 10x worse. My lips were dry brittle, dull, scaly, and very unattractive.
The Neosporin Lip Health did wonders for my lips! >.<. It is now my go to product when my lips are dry, So i know this product deffently locked in moisture. I have tried so much lip products but they just seemed to sit on the surface of my lips and do nothing else. The first time i tried Neosporin Lip Heath i could feel it working. I applied a light layer threw out the day and a thicker layer at night. Doing this my scaly lips were no more >.<. This product did everything it claimed too, deffently a repurchase item for me!
