Nancy H.'s (TheDarkSideofBeauty) Beauty Product Reviews
For the price, this is a fantastic primer!
I have used the Urban Decay primer potion for a long time. I love it but it can be really expensive after a while. I was looking for a cheaper alternative so I decided to give this a try. I think that for $1,it works amazing. IT prevents creasing and it makes my eyeshadow stay put all day. It doesn't as good as the UDPP, but it works almost the same. I would say that UDPP works only slightly better. The $17 price difference definitely makes it worth it.
Great coverage foundation
This is my favorite drugstore foundation because it gives really great coverage and it also lasts a really long time. I? love this for special occasions when I need better coverage. But this can get cakey if you are not careful and it might be a little heavy for some people. I like mixing a little bit of my moisturizer in the foundation to avoid the caked on foundation look.
My go-to, perfect pink
This is by far my favorite MAC lipstick. It is a perfect everyday pink that you can just apply without having to worry about lip liners or glosses. It is simply perfect. I have used two of these up, and I will always continue to purchase it.
Better than chapsticks, but not the best lip balm.
-Smell really good
-moisturize the lips better than chap sticks do
-Don't moisturize enough
-I still have dry lips after using this
These are like $4, so might as well spend a little more on a better lip balm (Like the Jack Black or the Smith's Rosebud Salve).
Amazing shadows for the price
I have the Vanity and Lust palette. The Vanity palette has become one of my staple items in my makeup collection because it is extremely versatile. I love the matte shades specially for highlighting and blending. The other 3 shimmery shades are also great to create neutral looks.
The shadows are very smooth and pigmented. One of the best palettes you can find in drugstores!
It was okay
This worked alright for setting makeup, although it did not help all that much in terms of how long lasting my makeup was. My foundation did look better when I used this, and lasted about 1-2 longer. But for the price it was not worth it. The reason why I gave this 3 stars, though, is because I think it broke me out.
