L.A. Colors JUMBOeyePENCIL: Review

So I went to Discovery clothing store last week and came across these beautiful Jumbo pencils.  I thought they were alot like the NYX jumbo pencils.  They were $1.99 ea/so I couldn't help but to get a few and check them out.  I got 6 shades.  They had more but I didn't want the ones with the glitter in them.  However the blue one I got (pool party) has silver glitter in it.  :-(  So far I have tried them all except the green one (limeade).  I love the staying power.  I like how they blend really well also.  I give this product a thumbs up.  Below I have swatches for the colors.  This is taken with my handy cam so it not the best quality pictures but you get the idea..:-)

From Top to Bottom:
desert sun
popsicle (it looks pink but its more orange than it looks)
limeade
bronze shimmer
pool party
tropical bliss

I baught the M.A.C. Matchmaster SPF 15 foundation :-/


So....the last time I baught a M.A.C. foundation was well over 7 years ago.  I had no idea what I was doing I don't even remember why I got it.  It was too dark and too red and I didnt like it because I didnt know how to use it.  So one day I finally got color matched at a M.A.C. store and she matched me to a NC50 I had like a NW45.....Because It wasnt high on my prioraty list I never baught any M.A.C. foundations.  Its so many of them I didnt know what to choose.  So I have been thinking of trying it again because I love to try new things...:-) and compare.  I just ordered it last night so Ill keep you posted when I gets here. The computer matched me on the m.a.c. website to a 7.5 based on the the information I gave from the questions they asked.  We shal see if it mathces.  Stay Tuned!


I found this and thought it was pretty cool!  Its an awesome color chart!

Smashbox Studio skin foundaion ***My favorite Foundation***

So as of today this is by far my all time favorite foundation.  Ill give you a little back ground to this foundation: 
Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation SPF 10


What it is:

A long-wearing, oil-free, hydrating foundation with UVA/UVB SPF 10.



What it does:

Stay flawless for 15 hours with this photo shoot secret for picture perfect skin. This ultra long-wearing, hydrating formula with UVA/UVB SPF 10 blurs imperfections using light diffusing, encapsulated pigment spheres, and delivers natural-looking, buildable medium-to-full coverage. Its sweat-free, transfer-proof, humidity-resistant formula keeps skin hydrated and shine-free all day.



What it is formulated WITHOUT:

- Parabens



Research results:

This product provides 25% improvement in skin moisture in eight weeks.

Size: 1 oz

So, I have oily skin and I find it hard to find a really good liquid foundation that doesn't add to the oiliness of my skin.  I have used this product for about 3-4weeks and I'm in love.  This is my first time buying an expensive foundation that I feel is worth the money.  It retails for $42 and I don't regret one penny.  I highly recommend this product and yes....I would buy it again.
