Perfect Brow Powder for Cool Blondes!
I use this for brow powder and it is the perfect color for my cool ashy blonde hair. All the "blonde" brow products I've used are too red based and they look weird on me. I use a small angled brush to apply it and then either use a brow spoolie to comb through and make it look more natural or just sweep a powder brush over it once. I'm sure one of the many other colors would work for brunettes for brow powder as well. If you are in the market for a new brow product, give this one a try!
Holy Grail Powder Foundation!
I am on my second one and I just ordered a 3rd for backup. I use it alone on good skin days or in the summer when I'm more oily and don't want to wear a lot of makeup. Otherwise I dust a little over a foundation or bb cream for more coverage. I use it in Fair and it works perfect to even out my skin tone and perk up my face. It is a little pricey but I ususally buy it whenever I find it cheap like on Hautelook or when Ulta or Beauty.com are having 20% off sales. Also it lasts me about 1 year (using it almost everyday) so I think it's worth the price.
I bought this product because I really wanted to try the MAC tinted lip conditioner but I am not willing to shell out that kind of money, I always look for cheaper alternatives. I have the color Nice & Natural it is great! It moisturizes my lips and it also tones down the natural color in my lips for a more nude look. I really need to get more of the shades!
Too dark for me and broke me out.
I recieved mine in the lightest shade and it is too dark, but i used it anyways since I paid for it, until it broke me out. This product contains Bismuth Oxychloride which can break people out, I've also heard that BM has the same ingredient. This doesn't have that great of coverage either. I threw mine away, it just wasn't worth even using it all.
Doesn't impress me...
I used to use this all the time because I had nothing else, maybe its bad just because its in stick form.... its not liquidy enough I guess so its hard to blend and it settles into creases. It's not really horrible but I wouldn't suggest it because its hard to work with.
Became one of my favorites..
I wouldn't say its the best lip balm for moisturizing dry/chapped lips but it is great for just everyday protection from getting dry lips, and for a great scent/shine. I bought Honeydew and Lemon Drop I love them already, the scents are addicting and they are fun to use! Great packaging too, easy to find in your purse without even looking. I definitely want the other scents. I got these for $1 each with the RR deal at Walgreens this week.
Cheaper alternative to Urban Decay
I have 4 of the colors, and I will eventually buy most of the others, they are awesome! They go on easily with no tugging and once they "dry" they wont smudge. Although if you want to smudge them you can right after application. The color selection is also quite good. If you want Urban Decay 24/7 pencils, but really cant afford them I suggest these. Try them out!
I have this in Pearl and I want the other colors. I like these better than any primer that is applied with a wand because it is less "watery" and I have kind of oily eyelids so the watery ones just make it worse it seems. These kind of seem to be like the consistency of the jumbo eye pencils but depotted into jars which is more convenient
