Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder
slippingbeauty 2/20/2011 3:42:00 AM
This has been my HG setting powder for a few years. I have combo/sensitive/acne prone skin and it works beautifully for me. It really helps to control oil in my t-zone to keep my foundation from melting off.
This is a beautiful mauvey pink with a bit of golden iridescence to it. It smells like strawberries and cream. I love the satiny finish and it wears really well.
Jones is a nice wearable yellowish shimmery orange. I am pale with blue eyes and this color really makes them pop. It's easy to tone down the brightness with a neutral in the crease. High quality, lots of pigment, good wear.
This is a good everyday blush for me. It's in a similar color family to a lot of my blushes, but it's the least pigmented (as the name implies) so it's better for those light makeup days.
Bronzers -Hard Candy - So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula

This is a really pretty pale glowy bronzer. It's very inexpensive, and for the price you get a lot of product. I am very pale and try to stay away from bronzers, but this one is just really nice. It warms up the face without making it look dirty.
I think this is a must-have for everyone. There are so many options with this palette. Granted, it can be a gateway drug to more UD cosmetics. I really love a lot of the shades that are in this palette, particularly Sin, Smog, Mildew and Shattered.
Powders -Guerlain - Meteorites powder for the face in Mythic 01

This is a five-star product. It's no wonder it's such a classic. It's so pretty to look at, and it gives a nice subtle glow to my skin. I don't wear it often, but I do like to break it out if I'm feeling like my skin is a little dull or whatever. I absolutely adore the scent, and the packaging is just so chic. There is no criticism I could give to this product, it's just awesome.
I don't get a lot of fallout with this shadow (no more than any other NYX shadow) but I do get a lot of color payoff. It's such a neat color, I find it very flattering. It's great as a liner too.
Stray Dog is such a pretty dark taupe. It's an excellent crease shade for everyday looks for me. The quality is amazing, and the pigmentation is perfect.
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match super blendable blush n1-2 precious peach
slippingbeauty 2/20/2011 3:13:00 AM
This is a nice milky pale peach blush. I was looking all over for a light peach blush, and this is it. It's not as nice as the other True Match blush that I love, but it's still a good product. The pan is gigantic so it will last for a very long time. It's nicely pigmented and wears really well.
This is a nice matte hot pink blush. It's not phenomenal, but it's really good for the price.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Shakedown Matte Eyeshadow

Shakedown is a nice cool dark brown matte shadow. The texture is amazing. This is basically the perfect crease shade or liner shade. The quality is off the charts.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Matte Eyeshadow in Revolver

Love this shadow! I was actually looking for a nice grey for a very long time, and I finally found it in UD Revolver. The texture is awesome, and it has just the right amount of pigmentation.
Kiwi is a pretty yellowish green. It's nicely pigmented, but it definitely needs a primer to last.
Blush -Jane - Be Pure Mineral Crushed Blush in 03 Rose Silk
slippingbeauty 2/20/2011 3:03:00 AM
This is a really pretty pale dusty pink with shimmer. It's very smooth and glowy. I really like Jane's mineral blushes, IMHO they're a lot nicer than their pressed blushes.
