Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Gloss
This is an incredibly sheer, lightweight foundation. One problem? The shades run from sheer LIGHT beigey-orange to sheer DARK beigey-orange. The exceptions are the two lightest shades, which are compatible with light, pink skin: Ivory and light, yellow skin: Vanilla. (BTW – Emma Stone is wearing Vanilla in the ad below.) Although, I wouldn’t be surprised if it looked too peachy if you are very fair. Shell is a very warm, almost orangey peach. Fresh Beige has a strong pink-orange look to it. MAC NC 25 folks can wear Medium Beige as it is the yellowest shade of the entire range. Any shade after that is basically MAC NC 30 – MAC NC 42, maybe darker. The second yellowest shade, but much deeper, is the Sun Beige. However, if you have medium, beigey-orange undertones then you can possibly fit multiple shades.
Please pay no mind to the yellow, or olive, undertone markers in the color guide above. The only one you need to be aware of is PEACH (beigey-orange). Apparently, Revlon felt that yellow and olive undertone gals wouldnt’ mind wearing varying shades of PEACH (beigey-orange), which because of the sheerness of the formula, can be used as an OK match, if you don’t mind looking teeny hints of orange, if you are not orange-undertoned.
Revlon Photoready BB Cream
L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Crayon Concealer comes in a chubby crayon stick. The formula is kind of dry and patchy. I guess best for covering acne-not undereye area, but the patchy part makes it not that great for blending or seamless coverage. The W4-5 was too dark, but the W1-2-3 was too light on my light-medium, yellow skin with hints of green in it.
L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush
Large chunks of gold glitter – even in the non-shimmery version – sheer, plasticky, uneven patchy color. Don’t waste your dollars. Overpriced and bad.
L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain
Not a substitute for ANY of the stain lacquers in the higher end market. This did not go on evenly and it broke apart in patches. Pigmentation visibly clumps on application. Forget about letting your lips touch each other. It will peel in patches and stick to each other. Total nightmare. Stick with their Caresse Stick Lipstick, which is GREAT!
Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational
I was really curious about these. The pigmentation on these are inconsistent. Some of the lighter shades are basically gloss with shimmer. However, the deeper colors had a lot more even color payoff – not so “Whisper” eh? For $7.99, if you get the right color, these are quite nice, actually. The first Maybelline lipstick product I liked (just be careful which color you pick).
Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Longwear Lipstick
Eh. Not worth the price. But no where near as bad as the L’Oreal Colour Caresse Shine Stain. Oooh, those were BAD!!! I reviewed these here.
Rimmel BB Cream 9-in-1 Super Makeup
I haven’t tried it but if you are curious…?
L’Oreal Colour Riche Nails La Noveau Riche Trendsetter Nail Colors
Oooooh, pretty! I picked up Not A Cloud In Sight. I did not pick up the sticker. I am not good with nail stickers.
Wet n’ Wild Coverall Collection with Fergie
Won’t be trying these but if you are curious?
Maybelline The Rocket Volum’Express Mascara
I’ll be honest. I am not a fan of Maybelline mascaras….
L’Oreal Electric Fantasie Project Runway Edition
L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara
However, I like L’Oreal mascaras and I am quite curious about these. I generally only use either L’Oreal, or more frequently, Cover Girl LashBlast mascaras.
