Autum D.'s (autumfaith) Beauty Product Reviews
I did a lot of research before purchasing this product because I was a little unsure of it, and seeing so many good reviews, I decided to go for it. I got the darker color because I applied a sample of the light and it was too light for my skin. First off, the dark would have matched my skintone perfectly, if it was more brown than orange. It wasn't a totally umbearable color, but it was definitely more orange, which is never cool. Second off, it was soooo streaky. I was under the impression that it would work just like a normal lotion, but the color in it made it so hard to blend and left streaks all over my face. I have combonation skin, and this product made me look like my face was soaking wet. It was so oily. I even tried to make it work by applying some of my bareminerals mineral veil over it to take some of the oil out, and five minutes later it looked just as it did before. Overall, I was toatlly unimpressed with this product, it did not work for me whatsoever. I returned it to get my money back. I do not reccommend this.
I really like this tool. Im a bigger fan of waves than I am curls, so I'm always looking for something that will make my hair look more wavey.This definitely did that. It was a little hard to use at first, but I got the hang of it quickly. It also gave my hair some volume. I really love how it makes my hair look :)
I love this!!! I hate lipglosses and lipsticks, to I pretty much stick to lipbalms and chapsticks. I have never had a chapstick that lasted as long as this one. Normally I have to reapply frequently with others, but this one you only really have to reapply if you've just been eating or drinking, and even then it's still kind of there. My lips are very pale, and I love the color it gives my lips, its very pretty and natural looking. It really moisturized and hydrates. The only thing thats a little weird is that it kind of smells like pine sol, lol... its not a horrible smell and you get past it, its just a little weird at first. This is by far my favorite lip product ever and I can't wait to buy again! :)
I generally love Benefit products, but I absolutely hated this mascara. It pretty much did nothing and looked like I hadn't even put anything on my lashes. I was really excited to try this after hearing such good things about it, but I was extremely dissapointed. If it's good for anything, its okay as a touch up mascara over mascara you already have on. It might add a LITTLE volume or length over another mascara, but it does nothing alone. Will not be buying this product again.
This is a great mascara. It truly does add a lot of definition, as well as length. I love how the brush is skinny enough to reach the little tiny lashes of your eye which most mascaras can't do. There was a lot of seperation and made my lashes look really full, with no clumps. Definitely at the top of my list and will purchase again :)
This mascara was okay - definitely not what I expected. This was the first and only "fiber" macara I had ever used. It did add quite a bit of length. But I found it made my lashes kind of uneven and clumpy. It also dried out very fast and I absolutely hate the wand. I feel like the "fibers" if they're even really there, would fall in my eyes, even though I got waterproof. Or maybe it was just flakey. Either way, this product isn't absolutely horrible, but I won't be buying again.
I love this mascara! I have tried just about every mascara out there and this is definitly at the top of the list. It adds extreme length, as well as volume, definition, and curl. Pretty much everything you want a mascara to do, this does. I use about two coats, and I have the waterproof. I really suggust this product. Absolutely love this mascara!
I've been using this primer for about two weeks now, and i like it. It really smoothes out your skin and somewhat diminishes the look of your pores. It seems to keep my makeup on all day, and it doesn't feel heavy or sticky on my face even though its a little bit thicker. I have to say though, that my skin has been a little dry lately, which is strange due to the fact that my skin is usually somewhat oily or normal. I didn't think that this primer had anything to do with that until I read the reviews on this product, so that could be it. Either way though, it is not overly dry, and its only in some areas. I still like this product and will continue to use :)
I had never used a liquid foundation until around March of this year when a friend gave me some of hers to give a try. I had always been against them, thinking that they would make my skin break out or look cakey. She let me try her Maybelline Fit Me - which was okay. But then I went and bought this foundation, and its great. Its kind of thick while your putting it on, but its not a foundation that you can feel on your face. It is very blendable which is also great, but it dries very quickly so you have to work kind of fast. It lasts all day, and gives you a very even, full coverage. It doesn't look cakey either, its more of a natural look in my opinion. I use it whenever I'm not using my bare minerals. Its a great by, especially for the price :)
Amazing! I have never used a eyeshadow that lasts so long. I've seen a lot of products that claim that they last for 24 hours that really don't, but this procuct definitely lives up to that. You can swim, sleep, shower, pretty much do anything in this eyeshadow and it will still be there! I use Bad to the Bronze on a daily basis, and i love this shade. Its very nuetral but with a little kick of sparkle. It looks so pretty on. I also got the Audacious Asphalt shade to wear with my look for prom, and its a great shade to do a very glamorous smoky eye. The eyeshadow is creamy and goes on very well, and it doesn't feel heavy. Love this product!
