This works just as well as the orginal UDPP, but can be used alone as a beautiful bronze wash. Shimmery, with just the right amount of tint. I like using this when I wear bronze/gold/browns/smokey looks.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This works great for my oily lids (just as great as TFSI). I can't imagine wearing eyeshadow without a primer of some kind underneath, and has become a staple. It makes my shadows apply richer, smoother and makes them last and last. I have *zero* creasing issues when I use this primer, and I have slept in my eyeshadow. Great cult classic. The new tube packaging is much more practical.
I am *so* pleasently surprised with this eyeshadow palette. I own a few other UD palettes, and while they are far from "poor" quality shadows, these deluxe shades just blow them out of the water. They are so much more creamy, pigmented and smooth than regular Urban Decay eyeshadows. These are seriously like butter. I am so happy with this palette, and got it for $13 at Ulta! The packaging is adorable and practical - no fancy schmancy pop ups or bulky add ons (ahem, book of shadows). I would have prefered a brush or gloss mini, as opposed to the foam tip applicators it comes with, but I still am smitten.
Gosh, I love orange lip products...and this is no exception! The slight pink undertones keep this from being as in your face orange, as say, Morange. Very wearable, very flattering on my pale skin. As with most MAC lipsticks, I wish this wore longer.
I think this is a great dupe for Bare Slimeshine, although the texture isn't quite as balmy. Lighter lips can make me look corpse like, but this packs enough punch and pigment where I can wear it confidently.
I was so enthralled by the Heatherette collection that I *needed* to make a purchase and wanted it to be something different that stood out in my over flowing stash of lip products. This lipstick was it. It's very unique with the greenish glitter. I don't grab for it much, since lighter/nude lips can make me look a bit dead, but this lipstick is still beautiful.
This is a great mascara. I can use this with or without my go to lash primer (Dior) and still get great, quick, results. This builds up fast, with a nice wet formula. Length, volume. I'd prefer some more seperation, though.

This is my go to mascara when I'm going for a natural, yet defined look. This makes my lashes soft, fluttery, elongated and volumized! This can be built up to acheive some drama, or applied lightly for a "my lashes but better" result. Great, amazing mascara! Cute package too! One of my HG's!
This is the original Volum Express mascara that started my love affair with all the new mascaras in that line. I used this product years ago as my go to mascara when I wanted lots of volume. Great staple DS mascara.
Tubing mascaras make me a little nervous, because I'm never quite sure if it's my actual lashes coming off during removal or just the tubes. With that being said, I remember using this mascara a few years ago with success.
This is one of the first mascaras I remember using and really loving. I kept a stock pile of these in my "young" stash. This was before the lash primer craze, and I loved how this came with a primer on one end. It really built up my lashes. I still have one of these in the package lying around and I'm excited to see if I still love it. Great mascara.
I used this product a few summers ago in the water proof version. It certainely gave me thick, in your face lashes. I don't recall it being difficult to remove at all, being water proof. I'm interested in retrying this mascara in the regular version.
Uhg, I love this mascara, but I noticed alot more lash fallout when using this. Upon reading many online reviews, found that it is a common problem with this mascara. I tossed it, sadly. I get similar results with The Falsies without the lost lashes.
I used this mascara for a long time when I was a teen before I really knew all the mascara options out there. I don't hate it, not at all. It doesn't give va-va-voom lashes some other mascaras, but for what it is, it's a great staple mascara. I received compliments when wearing this just as much as when wearing a $30 product. Give it a try!
I really like this mascara (and boy, do I have quite a few). I get nice volume, length and seperation while still maintaining a more natural, "soft" look. My lashes don't look or feel dry or crunchy, no "spider legs" here. The brush can be a little confusing, though. It's two sided, and one side is for seperation while the other is for volume. I have a hard time figuring out which side is which, but I make due and I love the result. Love the chubby tube.
