I am a simple girl who likes simple things. I don’t have time for a lot of fuss so I have very little in my makeup bag. I have some favorites that I would like to share with you.
Revlon Colorstay Foudation and pressed powder. These two products have given me the best complexion a girl could ever ask for. My skin looks flawless when I have it on. I would not use anything else. I am hooked on the finish. I like a matte finish but not dry looking and this product achieved that along with the staying power. I work long hours and have a lot of things to do during the day and none of them include touching up my makeup. I love the Revlon Color stay because it is afordable and worth every penny.
Rimmel London Long lasting lipstick in Bordeaux. This was my perfect shade and I was surprised. Rimmel London does not make a lot of products so suit African American skin and lately they have stepped up their game really. I have tried their eye shadow and bronze and have been amazed at the color payoff and quality. So I guess their research is in the right place.
This lipstick is smooth going on and smooth all day. The color lasted and lasted. I literally needed soap and water to wash it off. That I find amazing. It didn’t even leave a stain like some lipsticks do.
Sugar Cosmetics Travel tan. This is a Matte tanner or bronze should I say. It doesn’t change colors as the day wears on. It is a bronze but with a glow. I liked this as a blush and all over face color boost. The result is better seen in the sun. I promise this one won’t fail you.
Cover girl Lip gloss in Baby Girl Pink. Cover girl has been coming out with so many new formulas and products I think they should spend more time promoting what they have now which is a great company trusted for over 40 years. This lip gloss gave me the feeling of silk on my lips which is strange because most glosses get sticky and this one didn’t. That was a nice and confusing surprise. It made me wonder if it was worth it. So as usual I tested it and even bought a few and gave to my study group for comparison. All 12 ladies in my group loved it and wanted to know where it has been. I concur, the lip gloss was very good in comparison to other drugstore and some department store brands.
I think all the female population of the world has tried, used or was raised on Cover girl and the fact that they are still here is proof enough about their products and how well they do what they say. I give this gloss 14 thumbs up. One for each member of the study group and two from me. I cannot tell you how refreshing this gloss was and to have them be buy one get one free was a steal.
I hope that this review has helped you in some way to decide whether or not to try some of these products. I like them and if you are thinking of trying them go ahead. Like I always say it’s only makeup if it doesn’t look good wash it off and start over.
