I like this palette! this was my first UD palette. I got it on a trip to AZ.. we didnt have a sephora or an ulta yet in my town, and I went when we went to PHX... and this is a good palette.... The packaging is ok... i like the turn top, but it comes loose quickly. and the brush was not my fav! it is a good one with good colors, but they are VERY glittery!! a bit of fallout, but just put tape on ur cheeks when done, that will pick up the extra!

I got this as a "deluxe sample" coupled with a bronzer in a smaller box.... I wanted to try the blush and bronzer out before getting the normal sizes... I now use this everyday! it is amazing!!! I am currently looking for a dupe, and not having much luck, but I am completely content wiht getting a new one in the reg size!! it is perfect for my shade skin, I have had nothing but good experiences with Tarte and will continue to buy and try their products!!!
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder
COAS87 6/6/2012 3:28:00 AM
I got this product a week ago!!! it is amazing, completely worth the price of 6$. I got it at my local target. I used it after my smashbox primer, and my mousse foundation. It was perfect for doing things with specific lighting! brightens the face with incandescent lighting. I love it, I only use the powder puff when touching my face, I use a large kabuki when applying! I love it... this is a new must have!! great, lightweight formula, nice packaging that is effective, (uses a sifter) I like everything about it
Concealers -NYX - HD Photogenic Concealer Wand - Fair
COAS87 5/31/2012 1:24:00 AM
This I bought at Ulta. It was I think 6$, but the buy one get one 50% off deal applied, so for like 3$. I like it for my nose, and undereyes. it really helps minimize pores and the dark circles! I would definitely buy it again. It makes me want to try the other concealers that NYX has.
This is a very thick and perfect colored. Be cautious of how much you apply. I always seem to put on too much, get watery eyes, and feel the constant need to rub them! However, if you keep an eye on that, it is the greatest mascara ever!! really makes them look like you're wearing falsies! much better than the maybelline falsies mascara which does not do what this stuff can! and for around 20$ a tube, completely worth it!!
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover
COAS87 5/30/2012 3:17:00 AM
I got this in a gift with purchase. It is oil based, which you can tell as the product separates in the bottle. It effectively removes makeup, but is oil based, so if you get some in your eye, like I did, it burns!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got the solvent type instead, and prefer it to this one! the packaging however, is good, is child proof cap as I remember and is clear enough to see how much is left. it is completely up to what you prefer to use, but I opinionly do not
Eyeliner -NYX - Super Skinny & Super Fat Eye Marker
COAS87 5/30/2012 3:13:00 AM
100% the best felt tip eyeliner I have ever used!!! its tip is amazing gives perfect precision, and the either skinny, or fat option let you choose which type of drama you want. High drama thick lines obviously go with the thick one, and for thin cat eye lines, go with the skinny! I prefer the fat one, it is easier to hold on to, and is easier to maneuver for some reason... plus I prefer thick dramatic looks!!! try it out, you will not be disappointed!! they are about 10 to 13$ and I got mine from ulta!
Tinted Moisturizer -mark - Get a Tint tinted moisturizer
COAS87 5/30/2012 3:02:00 AM
This is the first tinted moisturizer I ever tried! I became an avon rep, and ordered it, and was not disappointed! I went and tried different t. moisturizers to compare their effectiveness, and I liked this one More, based on its price. The only downside is its availability. Finding an avon rep, and waiting for it to come, or ordering it online, you still have to wait for it to come. I wanted something I could buy and get my immediate gratification. Then I discovered the wonderful ULTA!! and sephora! it is a clean product with no bad scent, no scent at all actually, and good consistency. It comes in good appealing packaging, and is easy to use! It gives good light coverage, and lasts a very long time. it gives a natural dewy look when used by itself and is great for summer as it contains SPF. if you have the opportunity to get this product, try it. I think it is like 10$
I love this beauty balm. I was previously using the mark get a tint tinted moisturizer, but was looking for something more readliy available. I came across this at ulta, and had heard about the new cosmetics fad, beauty balms. So I decided to give it a whirl, afterall I love too faced products! It is amazing! use a light concealer with it, and for a more matte look use powder to set it, kind of like with foundation. It is great for medi coverage for summer time! I generally want more coverage around my eyes so I use air mousse around that area after the fact! I would definitely recommend this for more regular use than foundation, as it moisturizes etc, better than foundation does! It can be a bit spendy, but worth it as the product lasts a long time, and there is adequate amount of product in the tube. If you get the chance to try it out, take it! you should like it!!
I bought this at Ulta for $5.99. It is in a white bottle with pink detailing on it, with colored text. Product is 8oz. It is a great hairspray.. I bought it looking for a rusk esque spray for cheaper for teasing and poufing my hair. This has a great scent to it, once sprayed and after a while doesn't smell bad at all. Lightweight formula too. I have noticed that cheaper brands tend to be heavier formula and weigh hair down, whereas salon brands tend to be feather light! better chemicals I suppose... but this is a happy medium, lightweight on hair and the pocket book!!great hold, and does not get crinkly!! it contains apple blossom and bamboo in it and promises "tall" results!! if u want good salon hairspray, at a great price, get this...!! awesome.
