  1. I'd like to know what you think about the concealers here! Also, just in general what concealers you have found best, and what you use most! I have some serious dark circles most days, and while some are from lack of sleep, I'm afraid some are just permanent :/ when I get old and rich I'll have those fancy laser treatments done, but for now I must rely on concealers!

  2. Looking forward to these reviews!! If these products are so fabulous, I am going to be so mad that I have spent so much money on makeup in the past. I am LOVING that coral nail polish! Ready for reviews to add some of these to my stocking stuffer list!

  3. Emily-- I know the concealers are actually what I'm most excited about, haha!! So far my 2 favorites are Maybelline Dream Mousse concealer (which I don't think worked for you?) and also Maybelline Age Rewind Double Face Perfector~ it has a highlighter and concealer like the one here~
    Hahaha I know I have a list of stuff to have done when I'm rich!! Laser hair removal.. eyelid lift (mine are already kinda saggy.. meh, gross, I know lol), eyelash extensions.. haha!!

    Terrica! Helloooo!!! I'm so excited to try all of this stuff! I'm laying them out right now trying to maximize how many I can wear at one time, haha!! I'm with you, too-- if they work, imma be PISSED. That's part of the reason I wanted to try so many different products, just to see if they really are as good as "normal" priced ones!

  4. so this is probably dumb but how exactly do you use the HD powder? is it a finishing/top coat type thing, or a base? I have pretty clear skin so I dont usually wear much foundation or concealer. How would I use this product?

  5. Hey Gracie! The HD powder is a finishing powder, used to "create a 'soft focus' effect on the skin" in order to "mask fine lines, wrinkles, and imperfections for a radiant complexion." As their website says, "The incredibly soft and invisible powder is great for on-screen and everyday wear." Yes, I will be sure to remember this for my next on-screen moment, haha! But this would just hide any shine or slight imperfections on bare skin, just to give a nice, radiant, polished look~

    With the invention of High-Def cameras/tv came a new need for super-perfecting make-up, since Hi-Def is significantly clearer-- aka, shows all imperfections!-- than the picture before. When the public heard about this, of course they wanted to get their hands on this super-perfecting make-up, too! Make Up For Ever, which has been the leader in commercial HD make-up, has a finishing powder like this.

    WHOA sorry for the rant.. I promise there won't be a quiz, haha!!
