Beauty Product Reviews
I got this as a sample goody in a Sephora purchase and feel in love with it. It does what the description says it does. Since then I have purchased my own tube, it has a light, smooth texture and blends pretty well. If you get the tinted version, it has a light coverage and a semi-matte finish. I say it's semi-matte because it does not get rid shine. It sort of defuses it into a beautiful healthy glow. In terms of a primer, it does smooth the skin and fill large pores and such, but I have not noticed any real change in the longevity of my foundation with this on. But hey, I didn't buy it to keep my face on all day, so I'm happy! My only con is that it's quite pricey. :(
I got this because I saw that one of the colors matched me perfectly. I was so excited! I wore it for a couple days, I was pleased with it. It wasn't heavy on the skin, but definitely not light weight. There's a strong Cucumber water scent and it had a light coverage, and not really that build-able. But it broke me out like nobodies business! Not a keeper.
I loved this product. I have the Sweet Mint (Pale Blue-Green) one because I love the cooling feeling of peppermint oil. This makes my lips feel soft and moisturized, and I can't get enough of it. But sadly, I've started to break out around my mouth and I think it's from the balm. I've never had horrible problems with acne so when I start breaking out I get worried. I don't know for sure if it's the balm that's breaking me out and I don't want to stop using it because I haven't found another easily accessible balm that works this well but, obviously, I don't want to make acne all the time. I'm not sure what to do.
My go-to foundation ATM
This has been my foundation of choice for awhile now. I love the matte finish and keeps my face looking oil free all day. This shade is perfect for my skin tone, (Summer and Winter!) After seeing BareMinerals infomercials, I thought I could use this product as a concealer too, sadly it doesn't build up to the coverage I want. Also, when I apply it to a newly washed face it feels a little drying and heavy on my skin but that goes away pretty quickly. Overall, works great for me, Love it! :D
