Review Sigma Eye and Blush Palettes


Hi again everyone-

So this review has been requested by so many of you! I received these products from Sigma a while ago but it took me a bit to put the review up because I wanted to try the products out and really use them for a while first.

So to start with I want to mention that Sigma is a wonderful company and is so willing to answer questions of the consumers. They are on twitter and they actually get back to people who ask questions. That being said this is my opinion as someone who has purchased from them and been sent products by them! So this is not a one sided opinion of how they treat people I received the same treatment at all times! That shows what a great company they are! They also told me to give my 100% honest opinion on their products because that way they will be able to improve and make new products based on the consumers! That is awesome!


So here are the products:

Neutral Palette-

This is by far my favorite palette! As you know if you follow me I am a more neutral eye girl anyway- I might put a pop of color here or there but neutrals are my love! So when I saw this palette I was so excited! However the only thing that concerned me is that all of the colors were shimmer colors- no matte ones (this is true of all the eye pallets) So I used them and liked the colors but the shimmer and fallout were a bit much all together! I did find that when I used them along with other matte colors I liked them much more! however if you check out my video (I did an eye look only using the neutral palette) it is a wonderful look! Also for some reason this palette is not showing up on the website to buy on it's own! This palette is a must have for me and great for travel!


Smokey Eye Palette-

So this palette I gave a try a few different ways and I really liked the colors but they oxidized on me after a few hours! This happens to me with most greys! I will say however the Indian girl color in this palette is an almost exact dupe for the MAC discontinued sweet sienna pigment that is so desired! Overall this palette is a great palette if you like the grey smokey eye! It is not a MUST have for me simply because I am not a grey smokey eye girl!


Fun Eye Palette-
Ok so this one intrigued me- I liked the colors- especially the play with fire (bronze) color and the I got the blues color. I really like to use blue as a pop of color in the summer months under my eye and to bring out my blue eyes. As far as the other two colors- they are pretty but I am not someone who wears those colors very often! So this one is not a must have for me either!


Blush Palette-

Now this was a great surprise- I am a huge blush person and when I first swatched these I saw how pigmented they were but they had a good amount of fall out! I did find though after using them that when you use a brush and not your finger which puts to much pressure on the powder they work great! very little is needed. I put some one my brush tap it off and the payoff is amazing! And it comes with a highlighter! My favorites are Ruby Tuesday and the highlighter! They make a great combination! This one is a must have for me!


Overall I would give these palettes a 7 out of 10!

Another note these colors are named after Rolling Stone Songs! I think that is cool to!

Review Maybelline 24 hour super stay foundation


Hi again everyone-
Sorry I have been a but MIA on my blog lately- we have been getting lots together for the summer house and I finally passed all my real estate classes/exams and I am starting with a new group on the 5th of May!
So this is my review of the maybelline 24 hour super stay foundation! I tried this so many different ways before I made up my mind on this. my final decision is that this foundation does not stay for 24 hours- it doesn't even really stay for 8 on me! I think the finish is a satin finish and the coverage is medium at best.
I know a lot of people really like this foundation but it just didn't work for me. if you are looking for a drugstore foundation I would suggest the neutrogena healthy skin foundation- it is a way better product for around the same money!
Overall I would give this foundation a 3 out of 10!
I hope this helps you and if you have any questions please let me know!

Cheers-
Lisa

Review Revlon Photo Reday Foundation


Hi all-
so this is a review of the Revlon photo ready foundation that has been a highly requested video.

Sorry it took so long but I changed the color at first, then I was testing different powders and just trying to see what the best results were for my skin.

So after a long trial period I found that this just didn't work for me. It was to glittery and shimmery in the sun- Some people don't experience this- I have heard it depends on how much you apply, but I have tried a very little, medium amount and a lot- and they ALL were to shimmery for me in sunlight! It is a shame because I really wanted to like it (or even love it.) Others have told me that mixing it with colorstay or a different matte foundation helps, but really I don't want to have to mix my foundation to make it work!

Overall I would give this product a 4 out of 10!

I did get an idea from a subscriber (bandybay868) to try using it as an under eye concealer and I really liked this. It gave a shimmer to lighten under the eye and it gave good coverage too, so if you have it and you don't want to mix another in and it just doesn't work for you like it didn't for me- give this a try!

So here is a picture I took on my hand against a black background in direct sunlight!


Also if you are a drugstore foundation lover- I have an upcoming video on a great dupe for NARS Sheer Glow!

Let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers-Lisa
