I received Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Foundation in Light Ivory for free in an Influenster Vox Box. The foundation was a perfect fit for my oily, acne prone skin. The foundation comes out thick and goes on smooth. It does not dry out your skin, like some matte foundations do. This foundation leaves your skin feeling very soft and looking natural.
Would I purchase this product? YES. I will be purchasing more as soon as I run out!
Would I recommend this to a friend? Definitely! I may purchase some as a gift for a friend.
Pros: Smooth, Leaves Skin feeling soft, Does not dry out skin, is not caky, Great for oily skin, Shine Control, Natural look

I received Expert Last NYC lipstick in the color Forever Fuschia. This received this product for free from Influenster.Com for doing reviews on products.
This lipstick was very impressive! I am not usually a fan of lipstick that isn’t matte, but this lipstick I love. I choose to use matte lipstick and lip stain because it is long lasting. My biggest concern with lip products are them getting on my teeth or transferring to anything they touch. I also find it a pain to reapply a lip product after eating or drinking anything. Fortunately, I did not have to reapply this lip product. I used NYC’s Expert Last lip color, went to dinner and a show, came home 4 hours later and the lipstick did not rub off of my lips. I am shocked at how long lasting this is!
As for the color, it is beautiful! I love pink lip color and this pink is perfect for me. The lipstick is very pigmented, which also surprised me. I expected to have to apply a few coats for a nice color, with one coat it was perfect. The color that you see is the color that you get! I am happy with this product.
Would I purchase this product? YES. I would love to try the different colors.
Would I recommend this to a friend? I already have and will be buying for friends! These would make great stocking stuffers!
Pros: Smooth, Nice Shine, Pigmented, Long lasting, Non Transfer
Cons: Not matte
Suggestions: Color your lip in a similar color lip liner as a base coat and run the lipstick over the top of it.
