Amanda C.'s (AmandaaaCardenas) Beauty Product Reviews
I have been using this for years. For about 5 years to be exact! This covers every blemish and any sort of imperfection! You really don't even need concealer with this. It's amazing! If you want full coverage and do not want to put foundation on your skin then this would be PERFECT! It does not interfer with your skin regime (acne prone skin). It's really amazing. I will literally pinch pennies to buy this stuff. Sadly, there are times where I do need to pass on it but I ALWAYS go back to this. It's worth the $29!!!!!! I'm in love. I'm in love. I won't fall out of love with this.
You cannot beat $5!
I am so in love with this palette. I had seen EmilyNoel do a video on her favorite nude palettes and this was one of them. She swatched a few shades and I fell in love. I had to see it for myself! For the longest time I looked for this palette at my local Target and could never find it until about 1 week ago, I took my time going isle by isle and stumbled upon a small section of ELF Studio Line items. I was so happy! I have been using this palette every single day. Yes, there are a few shadows that are not but 95% of the palette is amazing! I use the Maybelline Color Tattoo Tough As Taupe with this a lot and it just looks gorgeous in combination with these shadows!
Who doesn't love this?
Seriously, who doesn't? It makes my hair silky soft and smells fabulous! It's very pricey but well worth the money. My hair has sooo much history. I have bleached and battered my hair and this stuff always made it seem like I never applied heat to my hair. My heart breaks when I run out! lol
Not the best. Not my favorite.
My quick take says it all, not the best and certainly not my favorite. I have acne prone skin, the type when you know your pms is coming and your skin goes freakin bananas on you! Yeah, that...haha.
The grains are too soft. I don't feel like it is really cleaning my skin or picking up dirt from my face. The smell I do like it's not anything horrible but that is just my opinion on this product. You do not see major changes with this product, it is so so.
I recommend this to women/men who do not have terrible acne prone skin. The ones who have little blemishes here and there, yes this is for you.
As for myself, not so much!
I'm not sure what happened but I used to use St. Ive's Apricot scrub years and years ago and it worked fabulous. Forumla change? I don't know but it's not doing myself any justice!
My FAVORITE nail polish brand
I am so in love with the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, I have 4 of them and I am absolutely in love with them ALL. The color pay off of one coat is amazing. There is no streaks what so ever!
I forgot the other names but I do highly recommend these to everyone!!
It's GOOD but not the best.
If you like a dewy finish then this is the foundation for you. I do not really like that but setting it with a matte powder makes it work for me. It does have an ok coverage. If you do not want to wear anything heavy then this is really good. The foundation is VERY runny liquidy. Get me? So be VERY careful when pouring this onto your hand. Best bet is to get your stippling brush or foundation brush and dab it into the bottle.
Seriously, this stuff is amazing. I have combination oily skin and it helps out tremendously! I can see such a huge difference. When I cannot get my MAC Foundation Powder this is my GO-TO! After 4 hours of wearing this but T-Zone does not look all nasty and smeared. I'm really happy I found this!!
It has medium to full coverage (my opinion). I have uneven skin tone and blemishes so it's wonderful. I just wish it had a pump! It is thick but that's expected if you want medium to full coverage foundation. A little does go a long way!
