Mandy H.'s (lilh3artz) Beauty Product Reviews
I have only been using this for 2 weeks now and I will say that I'm loving it! I really like the cool effect which is when you apply the product to your face it starts to " burn " ( in a good way! ) but then it goes away after a couple rubs. I have noticed that my face is getting a lot smoother which is a good thing! The product also has a pleasant scent which is always nice :)
Best Contouring Powder
I will have to admit that when I first starting using this, I didn't really like the way it looked but then of course you learn to love them after and that's what happened to me. I'm not really a bronzer kind of girl so I used this as a contouring powder and it really helps in shaping my cheekbones to make my face look slimmer. I'm so glad that I discovered this because it has become a daily product in my daily makeup routine :)
Best mascara for Asian eyelashes!
I was so happy when I was finally able to get my hands on this when I went to Hong Kong this past May and I'm even happier that it works for my tiny asian eyelashes! At first it didn't work out for me just because I didn't know how to use the brush -___- ( apparently I was using the side for volume instead of lengthening ) The side that looks like a comb really helps with making your eyelashes look longer then it should which is great :) I think this is slowly becoming one of my holy grail mascara. If you're like me and have the typical short, straight asian eyelashes then I highly recommend you pick one of these up and try it out :)
Best Top Coat Ever!
I don't know why it took me so long to try out this product but I'm so glad that I did because it will be the only top coat I will use for the rest of my life! :) I was using the infamous Seche Vite and this really does compare to it if not better. My nails will always look glossy even if it's day 4 from the first application :)
Was never really a foundation wearer, now I am! :)
It's been a while since the last time I used a foundation, but I was reading reviews on this foundation and I was intrigued to see what the hype was all about. I will have to say that I'm liking this foundation :) It gives me the full coverage I need, gives me the matte look and if you set it with a powder it will definitely last for at least 12 hours. This foundation isn't cheap so you'll probably want to get a sample before getting a full size, and I also like how there's a lot of shades to choose from to suit different skin colors :) Overall I give this foundation two thumbs up!
For the perfect summer glow
I bought this product last year when they came out with the " To The Beach " collection because I missed out on it the last time they re-promoted it. I honestly have to say that this is the perfect product if you want to have that dewy/glowing looking skin I meant who doesn't want that!
You can use this alone and apply it on the top of your cheekbones or under the brow area for a nice highlight or you could mix it with your foundation.
I do believe that MAC made this a permanent product in their line but I would recommend going to the counter or store and ask.
It just gives your eyes some BAM!
This is a great color for everyday and night out wear! It stays on for the whole day, it doesn't budge and it doesn't crease either! And I'm really glad that they re-packaged the product into a squeeze tube because with the old one you would have to cut open the bottle and scrap the remaining product out which is just a hassle.
Go for something
I find these to be not as pigmentated as it would be when it is swatched. When I was at the drugstore, they swatched beautifully and I immediately bought it but when I applied to product there was no color at all. I tried it with UDPP and it did nothing. I'm very disappointed in this product; worst $8 I've spent.
Best $13 I've spent
I carry this in my purse everywhere I go, I don't get too oily that much ( I have dry combination ) so when I do get shiny I pull these out and there is no irritation what so ever and it has a lovely scent! And the best part is that they do the job well! I will definitely be keeping these in my beauty routine.
