Finally No More Eyeshadow Creasing for Me!
Finally No More Eyeshadow Creasing for Me!
I used to buy really expensive eyeshadow primers. However, I decided to try something new. I love this product! I have oily eyelids so I’ve always had issues with eyeshadow creasing. I never liked putting much eyeshadow on because It would always be gone by the end of the workday. I’d been looking for something that would stop the creasing and keep the shadows in place. This does that! I have no creasing issues anymore. I also use it on my eyebrows before I use my eyebrow pencil and it works beautifully to hold everything in place.  Goes on the eyelid with no problem (I put a few dots on my lids with the applicator and spread them out with my finger). For a minute it feels a tiny bit sticky, then it dries, literally feels like nothing on there and I don't see any difference in a 'color' that it leaves behind, maybe a little bit of a nude color, but barely any. I use eyeliner, so I put the liner on and it goes on nicely. After testing it for a day, my liner has not moved. Looks like I just put it on. If I didn't use primer, my lids get oily and the liner fades throughout the day. Then I look terrible and just rub it off with my fingers. I think my other primers (that were way too expensive) are very similar to this one. I will continue to buy NYX eyeshadow primer moving forward. I just wish there was a bigger bottle of this stuff. It's too small. If they had one, I'd buy that one too. Love it!  The only con was it ended up making it harder to take my makeup off at the end of the day, but I have some cheap dollar store makeup wipes so that maybe just my problem.

My face stayed put all day!
My face stayed put all day!
I've tried a good amount of setting sprays and powders in an attempt to make my makeup last a workday. I've used way more expensive sprays just to have my makeup slide off mere hours after I applied. Setting powders make my skin look dry, so I've been on the hunt for the best setting spray. This brand is the only stuff that helps my makeup last throughout work. After work is when it falls apart, but without the spray I wouldn't make it to lunch. I've used primers, long-lasting foundation, setting powders etc and nothing helped. I've tried Urban Decay, Ben Nye, Kat Von D and they've all let me down. I saw the price of NYX plus two bottles and thought, what the hell. After I apply my foundation, I tilt my head back and let the spray fall on my face and I'm good to go for the day. Finally! This stuff is awesome. I use the dewy for winter and the matte for the summer. You don't want to spray too much, so the bottles last a decent amount of time. If you suffer from dry itchy skin on your face feel free to try all or some of the products that I mentioned and give this face mist a try. The mist is not greasy or heavy it actually feels like water but it provides a nice light shield of moisture, gives a light dewy finish and slows down the dehydration of the skin. I recommend it and I'd buy it again. Please note that this is a water-based product. If you're going to use this, do your research as to what other makeup you're putting this over. Silicone-based makeup does not mix or sit well with water-based, and vice versa.

A Concealer Shows Every Wrinkle!!
A Concealer Shows Every Wrinkle!!
I wanted to try out this concealer because of all the great reviews it has online. I thought, surely this is something that I've been missing out on. Unfortunately, it doesn't conceal like it's supposed to.I can't believe all the positive reviews  for this worthless item of make-up...  It looks just like applying liquid foundation on my face, without concealing the fine lines and pores, even after applying two layers. And this just made my undereyes look like a wrinkly crepe mess. I really do not know why it has such amazing reviews! I've tried it on several times, with primer, without primer, with moisturizer without.. still. Not good!  It's also not that great for oily skin. I still get the same oil and shine. In addition, the way this product works is that you twist the bottom. For some reason, this mechanism also lifts up the sponge. So, the product ends up coming out more from beneath the sponge than above the sponge. It looks really messy.I can't even get it to come out of the bottle onto the sponge applicator... I know it's not dried up because I finally ripped the sponge applicator off and found the super tiny nozzle that has a little dot of concealer on it. i can't even shake it out that way. This happens with the neutralizer bottle also... I don't know who designed this, but it really sucks. I'm getting ready to smash it with a hammer and see if I can get some concealer out that way! I can see why a roll on would work so much better than a sponge, especially over time. Sponges are full of bacteria, and will lose their shape, fall apart and dry out. It will only disappoint you!

The most effective vitamin c I have ever put on my face!
The most effective vitamin c I have ever put on my face!
When I write a review for skincare products I usually take my time because I want to use it first, to see the effectiveness of the quality, observe if there are any changes and after I can decide. Noticeable changes have seen after a day or two. I am in love with this and will make sure I have it all my life. MELANO CC - Rohto Merano CC Medicinal Stains Intensive Measures Essence I was previously using OST C20 serum but I all of the sudden can't find it anywhere convenient. This was recommended as a no-frills vitamin C serum. Best of all, it doesn't irritate my skin or break me out. No dryness, or anything. Just pat it on until it disappears, and continue with your skincare routine. I know it's not convenient or available through Prime or anything, but I still like it better than the C20 serum. The tube is great, and not messy. I used it on the pimple that was just about to come out and to prevent it I spot this essence. Then after a day, I don't have the pimple anymore, I spot it my old pimple mark, then I noticed that it lightens my skin, I decided to use it under my eye bags and I noticed that my eye contour is more toned and I look fresher. It's giving me a different glow. . Melano CC is SO much cheaper than other vitamin C products I have tried but maybe it just has less vitamin C in it...and maybe that's why it does not irritates my skin as much...but it works for me and that's all I care! How to use: Cleanse face. Hyaluronic lotion. Allow the face to dry. Apply just a few drops of this Melano CC, then seal everything with moisturizer, and follow with sunscreen.

If you looking to reduce bags and/or wrinkles this one is a miracle cream! ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery After not seeing any glow using Olay product for years, I happened to try the Estee Lauder line. I first received this product in a gift package 2 years ago. I used it occasionally, really only when I saw the beginning signs of the dreaded “eleven” symbol between the eyes. I don’t want to sound like a skincare sales ad, but honestly, this one was almost instant, by the 2nd day of using Estee Lauder my under-eye puffiness was gone. There is no scent, didn't leave my eyes itchy or burning in the a.m. I dab a little under each eye before bed. It's a little pricey but so worth it. Within a month, the dark circles start to fade from the outer part of the under-eye. in about a month and a half puffiness was greatly reduced. In 2 months, I'm no longer using foundation. within 5 months I look so good I almost forgot why I bought it(but I'm not making that mistake again). Good results and preservation. It does what it says. I always noticed the customers at the Estee Lauder counter in the dept store always looked very good - duh!!! You may think EL is costly, but you use such a 'tiny' amount of product the product lasts for months. So, in the end, I spend less than Olay days and look killer better. Liked the effects of this and so I started using the entire line (daytime perfectionist serum +++++++) along with the moisturizers. Switched my base from Clinique over to their Double Wear foundation also. All makeup now Estee Lauder (concealer, etc), I haven't looked at this refreshed in years!!! Took 3 years off and glow!

Great Weapon for Huge Pores!!!
Great Weapon for Huge Pores!!!
Have noticed my pores were getting bigger and filled with gunk, to the point I could feel the tiny tips when I moisturized (it was pretty gross) but then I ran into this product with great reviews so I gave it a try. #Labo Labo - Super Pores Lotion[products]# And now, I've purchased this 3 times already. I can see and feel a difference in the firmness of my facial skin, and combined with some clay deep pore cleansing masks, the pores on my nose, and basically, t-zone does look cleaner and smaller. It cleans out my pores, it literally feels like my skin can breathe when I use this. (The fact that it doesn’t work well with some people's skin type is not really a reason to say it doesn’t work or that it’s mediocre... since everyone has unique skin there will never be a universal product that works wonders for EACH person.) I have mixed oily and sensitive skin, works amazingly each time, for me, it’s worth it. So I'm definitely buying more. • Feeling after apply: The feeling is similar to an ice melt on the face and deep into pores during apply. After the lotion dried, your face would have a tingling feeling. • Ideal Users: Customers with oily and normal skin types who want to refine pores and clean blackhead would be satisfied with this super pores lotion. The formula would take facial oil away for the purpose of deeper cleaning and refine pores. • Apply Method: Apply facial cotton with a coin-sized amount of lotion on each side of cheeks, forehead, and nose for 10 minutes, which would introduce lotion into the skin evenly. After applying lotion in a proper method, you will feel tightness and fresh on your face.
