Nars Orgasm Blush, it looks SOOOOOO gorgeous in the compact but when I put it on there is like zero colour and a glittery mess 🙁

I agree! This is the blush every one raves about yet I’ve owned it in 3 NARS palettes and 1 single blush and I STILL don’t like it on me. It looks amazing swatched on my hand or arm but on my face, it looks so pink.

Man! Right there with you. I can’t understand why everyone else loves it – it looks like Tinkerbell threw up on my cheeks.

MAC studio finish concealer.
Works pretty well for my under eye area, but as with the rest of MAC’s foundations…it only breaks me out even more when I try to conceal blemishes with it. I’ve tried and tried again, but it just doesn’t love me back :/

Mac Studio Fix Fluid! Great product, excellent coverage BUT causes breakouts 🙁 so sad until I discovered Revlon Colorstay 🙂 just as gooood

I agree. I loved this until I realized it was causing me to break out more. But I loved it up until that point…

The first product that comes to mind for me is… something I just finished using! It’s Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I love this stuff for my forehead, nose, and chin… but for the rest of my face, like my cheeks, not so much! So basically, when I use this I either have to concentrate it more on my cheeks or go upstairs to use my mom’s lotion version. But I love Clinique’s skincare so much, I’m not ready to jump off the bandwagon yet… so I’ll probably keep buying this… so sad.

Blushes are my latest love, but they don’t seem to love my cheeks. No matter what I do, it looks patchy.

hey, i have the same problem too. A MUA suggested that I use the mineralize skinfinish in By Comfort underneath the blush to help it all stay on my cheeks and it’s been working for me. you should def. try this. The only thing is that you can’t try this with a matte blush..unless you don’t mind the sparkles that will show up from the mineralize skinfinish. I hope this helps.

I love bronzers and recently purchased actually hubby bought them i.e mac bronze and refined golden boy oh boy i look unhealthy wearing each of them considering that bronzers suppossed to give you a glow plus am mad i cant return them

my chanel duo eyeshadow in desert rose!
when i swatch it is so gorgeous and pigmented but when it’s on my eyes, you can barely tell one color is supposed to be darker than the other

NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils. I’ve seen so many people using it with success and it’s such a cheap cream eyeshadow with a great color selection. Unfortunately, it creases very badly on me and my lids aren’t even that oily! with UDPP underneath, applied lightly, it’ll still crease *sighs*

red lipstick…maybe because i haven’t found the right one yet…or the right look appropriate for it 🙁

I love MAC Feline because it’s an intense black but when I try to use it on my (upper &/or lower) water line it smears! The color won’t stay… It will run after a few hours! Help any tricks? Suggestions?? I so want to cont loving it!

I have the same problems with Mac Feline. On the lower waterline especially. Looks amazing at first, then not even an hour later, the outer corners are worn off!

I have that issue, too! I usually apply it once, let it set for a minute, and then reapply. I still get it smearing all over the place, but at least the colour stays on better.

Tinted moisturizer. I love it so much and I know it should be something that should be easy to work with, but it is so hard to find a colour that matches my very fair skin. I found one from Stila that matches nicely, but it is so sheer that I still need concealer and even though it says oil-free, I still have to wear a primer because it actually makes my face more oily than my normal foundation.

Try mixing a few drops of your foundation with a good oil control moisturizer. You’ll have to experiment with the amount of foundation until you get the coverage you like, but once you do I think you’ll be happy with the results.

GOSH’s Precious Powder Pearls in Glow and Magic. They’re powders in pearl form with Glow being the bronzer and Magic being the highlighter.

The colours both come out amazing and they look amazing on the skin, but they have so much glitter you need to REALLY buff them in with a good, dense kabuki otherwise they just sparkle far too much.

nyx jumbo eye pencils and anything a little too creamy – will crease on me really fast (and yes, worn under eyeshadows) :\
even Mac paints can’t hold my shadows for too long 🙁
