I love this palette. There are a lot of color choices so you can play around with different looks.
Makeup Brushes -Everyday Minerals - Everyday Eye Shadow Brush

This brush applies eye shadow very well. Some shadows that did not show up as well when using my natural hair brushes appear more vibrant with these synthetic brushes. I love them!
Makeup Brushes -Everyday Minerals - Oval Concealer Brush

I have the new concealer brush that is two-toned with the bamboo handles and I love it. I use it to apply my cream concealer and it works great. I may purchase a backup :)
Makeup Brushes -Everyday Minerals - Eye Kabuki Brush

I have 2 of these. I use them mainly for contouring (cheeks and jawline) and spot concealing. They work pretty well for light all over shadow application as well.
Other -Unlisted Brand - Ocean Mist - Makeup Primer

This primer works very well under my MMU. It minimizes pores and it makes my foundation last all day. It even held up after an hour long cardio workout.
I use this to set my MMU and it works very well. It's not the cheapest product in the world but it does what I need it to do - set my makeup without leaving my skin feeling dried out.
Blush -Unlisted Brand - Ocean Mist - Secret Treasure Blush

I love this blush. I works very well with my skin tone. I will definitely purchase again.
So far so good. I just purchased the Tan/Dark duo concealer from ebay. I tried it out tonight on some dark spots that are very hard to cover (even with traditional makeup). It worked out perfectly. I don't know how it holds up to a full day yet but the fact that it covered so well and matched my skin tone is very promising. I haven't tried it for under eye coverage yet but hopefully the results are equally as good.
Makeup Brushes -Everyday Minerals - New Flat Top Brush

I just received this brush last Saturday and I love it. It applies foundation smoothly and evenly and it's VERY soft. I just purchased another one as a backup :) ** Edit ** This brush did shed quite a few bristles initially but I haven't had any problems since I the first couple of washes. I purchased a second one and it hasn't shed at all.
This has to be my fav EM shadow. It is absolutely gorgeous.
I bought my first eye shadow kit a few weeks ago. I played it safe and picked out a couple of liners, some highlighters and some dark colors. Overall they are pretty good but not the best that I've come across. I have a few favs from this bunch and I'm tempted to try a few more but I'm a bit unsure. They always have specials so I may break down and try a few more.
I hated this thing when I first bought it because it scratched my face like crazy every time I used it. Then I started cleaning it more often with a mild hand soap and it has made a big difference. I now use it to buff out my MMU after spritzing my face. It blends my foundation perfectly. It's not as soft as synthetic brushes (hence the 1 lippie deduction) but it doesn't irritate my skin anymore.
Foundations -Meow Cosmetics - Pampered Puss Mineral Foundation

I have been trying out samples for the last couple of weeks. I think I'm in between Fierce Mau and Slinky Mau. I haven't figured out what my match is yet but Pampured Puss works great with my skin. I don't like foundation that's too shiny and some MMU brands make my face itch. I have not had a problem with itching even when sweating with this stuff. Once I find my shade I will definitely purchase a bigger size.
Cleansers -Pure Luxe Cosmetics - Essential Cleaning Oil

Love it! It is a bit pricey but it gets the job done. Plus it doesn't dry out my skin like most traditional products do.
Eye Shadow -Pure Luxe Cosmetics - Shadow Liner in Elysium

I love this color paired with Solitude and Claret as a liner.
