Most disappointing products to me:

Foundation – NARs replacing Sheer Matte with Luminous or whatever that crappy foundation is they have now.  Estee Lauder Doublewear (if you love FULL coverage than it’s great but, to me, it was like paste or clay.

Mascara – Diorshow, overrated

Bronzer – I wanted so bad to love Guerlain’s but they’ve always pulled orange on me. 

MAC anything – too heavy for me.

Primer and concealer-Cargo

Foundation- Revlon Age Defying

Mascara- Almay or Cargo

Eyes-Hard Candy Top Ten Neutrals- I use this so much that it won’t fully close anymore and one of the shades falls out.  Guess I need to pick up a new one.  

Eyeliner- Cargo swimmables

Lips- Elf Tea Rose matte lip color

Setting spray- E.L.F.

moisturizer- Nivea creme

Face scrub- St. Ives Apricot

Trying out some new face cleansing wipes as the ones I would get at Big Lots were no longer there.

Dissapointing: They’re real mascara from Benefit. That stuff is like super glue on my lashes.

For skin care i’m hooked on SkinMedica products. They are a bit pricey but my mom gets a huge discount on them from where she works. I LOVE them. Best my skin has ever look.

I use Lytera Skin Brighten System which has a cleanser, birghtening complex, and retinol.

I also use Redness Relief CalmPlex.

These products as I said are expensive but i’m lucky that my mother can get them discounted. I have horrible skin, very fair, prone to redness, oily, dry and anything else. These products actually make my skin look great! I’m confident enough to wear no make up to work now. That never use to never happen!

I’m iffy about make up, nothing I can’t live with out make up wise.

I used to use MUFE HD until they change the formula and made my face an oily mess.

I currently wear Estee Lauder Double Wear but they test on animals so looking for a different brand lol.

Hair

I LOVE the Jason and the Argan oil soap bar. I have crazy, wild, long, think, wavy/curly/fro hair and this does wonders on it. First product i’ve ever been impressed with on my hair.

CarribeanBridetoBe:  Yea I know what you are talking about, I never bought the brow-zing because it was to harsh on my face and my eyebrows are that weird not blonde but not brown color. Benefit just redid their brow line and I have been loving the ka-brow, easy to build and fill in. And from what I can tell the product is going to last a while which I love.

ljm308:  About the naked palette, if you love the colors, I say go for. I have 1, 2, and 3 and love them. I have had the original palette for probably 4-5 years, and it’s still not run out. It’s expensive, but they last!
