Chineen M.'s (MakeUpByChineen) Beauty Product Reviews
grrreat for summer and humid weather...
I currently reside in Toronto,and we get crazy hot weather sometimes. A few weeks back we hot hit with a ridiculous heat wave and my foundation was melting away and my oily skin wasn't helping. I decided to switch up my makeup routine and began using this product daily. I really like this product for a number of reasons. It is oil free which is great cause i have oily skin, it matte and light weight. Best part about it is that it gives a really natural finish. It evens out the skin without caking it on. It definatley held its own in the hot humid weather as well with the help of my primer and finishing spray. I would recommend this foundation powder for summer and humid weather as well as oily ladies as myself!
So I usually use either MOM or my l'oreal primer, however for some reason i was feeling adventerous and decided to hit my local sephora to try out this primer that i got so many good reveiws on. When ever I am trying out new products I usually give it about a week trial. This primer broke my skin out in less then 24hrs. I paid 50 dollers for this product. The packaging is simple, just a small black box and the product is simple as well. Not only did it break my skin out, the "oil free" product made my skin oily. Needless to say i skipped my behind right back to Sephora and got my refund. I DO NOT like this product at all. Definatly not work 50 bucks!
I find this cream stick foundation to be a stick of grease! No matter what i did in preparation my skin would always be extremely oily and shiney. I like that it is cheap and has a good variety of colours. However if your looking for something to give you a matte finish i wouldnt suggest this product. It did nothing for me at all!
it works with some foundations, unfortunatley, not all of them.
So i did my research on this product, listened to a few reveiws, then got all excited ran out and purchased it. I would love to write a whole bunch of good things about this product, but unfortunatley, my soul won't let me be dishonest. The packaging is cute and its alot of product. I bought it for about $12 bucks CDN. Now anyone, who knows me, knows i go insane over products that help with oil control, which this product clamed to do as well. You don't need alot of product, i onlt apply it where I get really oily, which is my tzone. Here's my issue, this product gives you a smoother surface to work with, however, you CAN NOT use it with every foundation as it says on the package.The first day I used it, I used it with my revlon photo ready foundation, and my tzone was waving at every 2 hours later. So the next day i tried it with my MUFE HD foundation and it worked like magic, and i fell in love. The next day i used it with my MAC founcation.....again my tzone had a party. So the next day i used it with my MAC face and body foundation (which means nothing, cause this foundaion can be used on its own, yall know i love my face and body foundation) and it worked beautifully. So moral of the story is, it works, WITH SOME FOUNDATIONS NOT ALL!!! So ladies and gents use this product with caution or you'll be disappointed.
Amazing! Just Amazing, Seriously!
(N9) So i was hearing alot of talk about this foundation so i decided to go out and purchase it to see what all the hoopla was about. First glace, the packaging is your average mac box, nothing huge, pretty simple. The foundation itself if light weight, actually kinda watery. I was quick to judge the wateriness of it until i put it on. This stuff is not only light weight but also very natual looking. It isn't greasy and it doesn't make you feel like your putting another face on lol. Best part about it is, it is AMAZING with oil control due to the fact that it is water based as well as water proof. To put this to the test, i wore it on a night out dancing with my girlfriends, i didn't have to blot not once. I love this stuff! It's not my every day foundation, but i will definatley be using this stuff again!
*meh* it"s alright
So i have had this stuff laying around for a while for whatever reason. I recently decided to pick it up and use it again. After using it for a few days i realized why it was laying around for so long. Although it does give a matte finish and u can literally use it with any foundation, I personally feel like 1. it can tend to make certain individuals ashy, and 2. if u don't buff it in 100% it will leave a white cast! Now alot of people comment and say "oh you only have to use a tiny bit" or " use only whats sticks to the cap of the jar". I have tried both using a tiny bit and using only what sticks to the cap of the jar and it still can and might leave a white cast. I have also heard that it is for the use of HD cameras only. Either way if u have time to really buff in the powder u will definatley get the finished look you are going for, i just think it is way too time consuming for me. Due to the fact that i know it leave a white cast, when, and if i do use this product i have to take a quick pic with my camera to make sure there are no white spots. That right there just shows that i don't have enough trust in the product to just plop it on and go.....sorry, but it is just alright to me, nothing amazing.
amazing for everyday.
so i decided to try out this foundation cause one of my good girlfriends gave me good reveiws on it. I have to admit for the price it is amazing! I usually wear mac or mufe, but as we all know those 2 products are quite pricey. So i am pleased that i found this product, also it matches my skin tone very well. I have been using this foundation daily for work and i am impressed. It doesnt girve full coverage in my opinion, but fortunatley, i don't need full comverage on a daily basis. So beauties, if u can find ur shade, go for it!
