Vanessa M.'s (vanessam) Beauty Product Reviews
This foundation is amazing. I've never used a foundation where I didn't feel like I needed to follow it up with some blush and bronzer to make it look good. For me, this foundation goes on so perfectly that I don't feel like I need anything more to make my skin look natural and dewy (although I do still use blush/bronzer). It just looks like a perfect version of my bare skin. This is definitely not a foundation for someone with oily skin. But since my skin is dry (and very flakey in the winter), it works very well. It has a gorgeous finish and great coverage. I can't believe how natural looking it is though!! I was using YSL "Touche Eclat" foundation before this. It really is a great foundation, and I thought it was the best one out there... until I tried this one! Definitely worth the $56 I paid for it. I always like to have full coverage and I only need a tiny squirt in order to achieve it, so I think this will definitely last me long enough to not put a dent in my wallet!
I've used this mascara on and off since it came out but after ditching it for awhile I've come to the conclusion that I hate it. I know it seems crazy because most people love it, and it does have some upsides, but I just think its way overrated. It feels like my eyelashes are hard and stiff from the moment I put it on. I think for a better and cheaper alternative I would use Covergirl Lash Blast. The reason I say this is because its great for separating/lengthening the lashes like this one, but it doesn't cause them to harden. I feel like it gives a really stiff and crusty look. Aside from looking bad, it also makes it difficult when you need to reapply it later on in the day because adding onto it just makes it clumpier.
Wow, I can't believe more people haven't reviewed this product! I've seriously never used a better foundation in my life. I can't say enough good things about it. It's so silky and smooth, and gives full coverage yet its luminous and natural looking at the same time. I seriously have never loved a foundation more in my life. The price tag isn't pretty but I only need about 2 pumps for full coverage, so I'm guessing it will last awhile. I was using "Revlon Age Defying" before this and it made me realize that if you're gonna go to the drug store for a product it definitely shouldn't be for foundation!
I love this! I ran out of my regular moisturizer and this was the only face cream I could find at the store here on campus. I had heard good things, and after using it I definitely agree! I have very dry skin and this works wonders for me! It's so cheap too, definitely worth more than the price, but I'm not complaining!
