  • I dont like it.. i have oily skin and it doesnt help.. i think covergirl is to much for the money also.. those lipsticks that are to stay on 24/7 always dry my lips out no matter how much of the gloss i put on..

  • I am a big MAC shopper! I started just buying the eye shadows and eyeliner and for my birthday one year my friend took me to get my make up done by them. I loved all the products they used and purchased the facial primer ,it makes your skin SO soft and helps keep you makeup on longer, the foundation was amazing and they helped me find the perfect color to match my skin, I love the lip glosses and blush also. I dont recommend just going in and picking out a foundation or blush on your own, ask them to help you! They will make sure you get the exact match for your skin. I have always just bought drug store cosmetics and always had issues with the colors not matching and it just not looking natural! Now I get compliments on how flawless my skin looks! I recommend trying out their products! :)

  • Honestly, with makeup it's all in your skin type and what your looking for your makeup to do. Unless you're one of those people who wear makeup like, you wear your underwear (every day) I wouldn't reccomend purchasing it. Because well it is expensive, and I've found that there are many drug store cosmetic brands that work just fine. Me, myself, I use everything from MAC, to Maybeline, to Smashbox, to Cover Girl, to Urban Decay and just about everything in between. It's just all about playing with different brands and stuff and finding what works best with your skin. Theres not any makeup in the world thats going to work exactly the same on any 2 individuals.
