FREEMAN facial Gel Scrub Raspberry

Since i found it at the same price as Clean&Clear, in a dm store, i thought i give it a go. I was attracted to the way it looks, to be honest and i cant say i made a bad choice.
It smells like fresh raspberry and contains scrubbing particles, size of sugar ones. It does need a lot of water to wash it off but does a good job. It might dry up the face a bit too much. Clean&Clear is gentler. It says it contains natural ingredients. :D

Manhattan mono eyeshadows

Manhattan eyeshadows
Shades, left to right: 51N, 316, 53C and 215.
They are mini eyeshadows, made especially for MyBox case which u can fill up with the products u like and are available in this size.
These look kinda crappy cuz they are almost expired :)) i think :P Well, they arent fresh, either! I took a peak at their new site and i couldnt find them.
What can i say about them is that they come in different textures, smooth and fine or glittery and 'sprinkly' all over the face (which i hate, but its maybe cuz of they've been a while in the store).
I like the non-glittery ones better, meaning from these four 316 and 215.
The first one is, like i said sprinkly and doesnt go on smooth over the eyelid, but the color is cute and fresh. Light pink.
The second is the green, looks ok, i can say i like it.
Probably my favourite is 53C, the coral-peach and the last one is awfully pink. They are very pigmented, especially the pink one - it should be a blush.
I wouldnt buy these, in conclusion.
I've used on my arm Revlon Colorstay before the eyeshadows, in Sand Beige 180.

Vinyl Gloss by Rimmel 190 Pin up

Yum yum
Beautiful color, i adore it!
Hydrates, stays on for more than 2 hrs, doesnt compare to the old Vinyl Gloss.

I really like it...til its smell....vanilla scent, same as the one in rimmel lipsticks. Why the heck did they add it to this super nice gloss?!
PS: the color isnt that pink, actually...its a hot reddish-pink :D

Second skin Max Factor

I mentioned one bad choice after another...this is the second one!
I got the 70-Natural shade.
It changes color, oxidizes, makes the pores look darker, looks uneven, a word: grose!
Ok, it looks natural, adapts somehow to skin tone, but what about the other things i mentioned??? It's not cheap, either. The container is ok, i can use it after i finish/throw this foundation.
The color looks beautiful...first few seconds. :(
Did i say it does not cover? It has no coverage level...
I declare it the weirdest foundation!

Revlon Custom Creations

They don't mention anything about the content's, i gave it a go which turned into a big no-no :P
I posted it on sale on a specialized site at half price.
I got the one in Light range of shades, my fav shade being 03 and i dreamt of using 03 all over and as i like, a lighter shade under my eyes and center of my forehead. Well, my dream didnt come true, 03 turns extremely yellow on my pale face, changes color, somehow and i look patchy....hhhhh! I didn't even try the 01 and 02, a main disadvantage i discovered was the fact that after setting the dial, for ex. at 3, u give one push, use the amount and after this u want a bit of 02 it pushes foundation shade 03 again, because the 'straw' is large and a lot of product comes out at once but not enough to empty it. So, maybe i'm wrong... i hope i'll give it away soon...cuz i got sick of my superstay silky 16h and made a bad choice after another and all foundations ended up on that site for sale. :( Now, i'm waiting for a sale to purchase something i can use and look normal :((
I hate it when i make wrong choices. I feel guilty... but, let's come back to Revlon Custom Creations. The coverage is poor, medium, to be kind. Has no smell, goes on well, but when it dries...stays there and i think it kinda dries to quickly.
I am really confused about this, i had such hopes and it's pricey, too... It has 2 containers, 2 different shades and if u use only the lighter shades and u want a darker shade u'll get stuck with the darkest foundation u wont be able to use because the mixing wont be possible. I am not very coherent but u're smarties and u'll figure it out :D My confusion is related to this property and to the probability that i'll only use half of it, fact that i couldnt have guessed when i bought it. When i took the decision of buying it i really liked the middle shade 03 which turned out to be different than it looks and changed everything.
About its lasting power i can say it does last good 8 hours and might be ok for oily T zones.
Another thing i like about it is that it has no perfume, like i expected.
So...if u feel tempted by it, be very careful with the shades changes and really try it before u buy it!
