Concealers -Maybelline - Super Stay 24 Hour Concealer
ImaJedi 3/1/2011 8:30:00 PM
I use this for my under-eye area. It does a pretty good job for me. The only problem is that I REALLY have to moisturize, because the formula is a little bit drying. So dry-skinned girls should stay away. Great coverage, long lasting & blends well. Will repurchase.
As an eyeliner, I would NEVER buy this again. The black goes on gray, and smudges quickly - but I also have the brown in "coffee" which works GREAT for my brows. It looks fantastic and matches my brow perfectly. It also last a very decent time on my brows when set with a shadow. Re-purchasing for my brows only. :)
While I would repurchase these again, I give them a 3 because they are drying. The color selection is amazing and all the colors are gorgeous, but when reaplying, I have to wipe it all off before so because it settles into fine lines. Gorgeous colors, but the formula isn't the best.
Concealers -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

By far, the best concealer I've used. I've used MAC's and that didn't last, I've tried a billion different concealers in general but this is definitely my favorite! It's fantastic - it lasts a long time and I love its coverage. Because of this product, I don't have to use a full coverage foundation. Will definitely re-purchase!
I did NOT mind this at all. Actually - I kind of like it. I mix it with my Revlon Colorstay Active foundation for some extra staying power and feel it's okay! It didn't oil me up, and it stayed put on my skin. Alone, I'm not sure I would like it as much, but it works. A lot of people hate the fact that the "smart shade technology" doesn't work for them, but I'm one of the lucky few where the actual color you end up with does match my VERY warm toned skin. It's alright. I like it.
You know what, I actually don't mind this product too much! I will be saving this to use for the winter since it's a little bit too dewy for my oily skin - but I didn't mind it at all. The coverage is definitely light, but buildable to a light-medium. I mix this with my Revlon Colorstay light-active sometimes and I end up with very decent results. Not sure if I will buy this again, but I don't mind it being in my foundation collection.

Let me start off by saying - I'm 18, I have acne-pron, oily-combo skin. If you have young, acne prone skin, this product is not for you because of the fact that this is VERY moisturizing and the moisture is too much for young skin. You might break out, you might not, but you might not pay attention to the actual purpose of the product if you're too worried about how oily or many break outs you get. Mixing oil plus moisture is not a good thing in general - but this product is not to blame. THAT being said, I've been using this ONLY for my eyes. Because of my ignorance, I never took care of the skin around my eyes. I never knew how delicate and how much tugging and pulling affected that area. I ended up with small, cracked, dry patches at the corner of each of my eyes (corners close to my hair line, not the bridge of my nose) Which is very average for a person, to have, but I hated them. Up close, I could see the damage I did to my eyes. Though it isn't visible to the average person, I saw them and they bugged me. I've been using this for about a week and the dry patch is gone. Just by touching the corners of my eyes, my dry patches are gone and I can no longer feel the lines. This caused the skin around my eyes to be firmer, and plumper. I no longer have the problem I used to have. But then again, this is skin problem most young people have anyway, but I'm glad this took care of this. I will keep updating to see what it does to my under-eye area. Hopefully it'll firm it up a little. <3

Decided to use this for a while before reviweing... It's great. It is moisturizing, but it does just sit on top of your lips for about 5 minutes. It's not the highest of quality of lip balms. But in the end, it works and it's moisturizing! Tha packaging is a no brainer, cute and trendy! The smell is great. :] Kinda like apricot, mango, fruity madness! I like it so much. :]
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder
ImaJedi 7/25/2010 5:59:00 PM
Quality wise, it's a great prouct. It mattifies the skin withoutt making it look flat. It defuses lines and flaws well. Nice translucent powder. But it's highly comparable to ELF's SIX DOLLAR HD Powder which I love. It's just as long lasting and gives very similar results. I guess if you're one of those people who love make up for the label, then go ahead and pay for something that's so expensive when you could buy something at the cost of the MUFE's tax cost. XD Love MUFE in general, but you can't beat 6 bucks!

Though I would not buy this product again, I am keeping this for winter. It's very dewey. I have oily skin but have dry patches during the winter and I could see myself using this when I don't want a totally matte face. You definitely need a good primer for this foundation [tinted moisturizer] It's... ok. not worth the original price [got it for $3 at big-lots]

Highlighters -NARS - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

This is my absolute favorite highlight... ever. It's amazing. The gold shimmer works great w/ my NC30 skin. I have VERY oily skin so I use matte formulas for everything, but this helps give my skin get a gorgeous glow. This is perfect. <3 BUT I will not be buying this again because I found an exact dupe for $3 - ELF Studio Blush in Gotta Glow. :]
Absolutley great brush! I use this to add a slight bit more coverage to my foundation with my foundation powder. The brush itself gives you a light coverage [which is GENIUS to avoid cakey looking make up] I also use this to touch up my MUFE HD powder. It's definitely going in purse for good. :]
Eye Shadow -Sephora - Colorful Mono Eyeshadow - Aspen Summit (23)

I find it to be a very versatile shadow with many uses. You can't go wrong with a pearly, shimmery white shadow. You'll find yourself using it for many things. I like it.
I'm not sure what's up with the low-ratings - but it works SO well for me!! No clumping, no smudging. Just some thickness going on. :D
