i really tried to like this product, but it's just not working out for me. i can't tell that it does anything to prime my face except add some moisture. IMO it seems like more of a moisturizer than a "primer". if i had dry skin perhaps it would be better. idk. totally NOT worth $28

I've tried the Photo Finish, Sally Hansen crap, Benefit's That Girl, and Prime & Perfect, and this is that one that works best for me. It's quite thick, but I think that's why it helps my face look smooth. It does help control shine also. Only problem is that it does clog pores:( I have to exfoliate every other day to help fight off blackheads (ewww). I just can't bring myself to stop using it since it's that best I've found so far.

This is perfect for my combination/oily skin!

I've been using this for about 5 years and it's the best cleanser for MY skin. I've tried many, many dif. cleanser and I always come back to this. I have combo skin, which is VERY oily in the summer. I just love it:)
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This is a VERY good primer, however, I have dry lids so it make my eyes look wrinkley (sp?). If you have oily lids then this is def. for you!!! Since I don't, I prefer the TFSI.
This is my FAVORITE lipgloss!!! I use it on a daily basis and just bought a backup:) It's a very creamy, nude/light mauve color. Not sure if it would suit all skin colors though. I'm VERY pale right now (like NC15). The only complaint I have is that quite a lot of product comes out on the top of the wand, near the handle, but no biggie.

This just seems like a waste of money. I can't tell that it does anything except live a film on my face. I haven't used it a lot though.
I bought this yesterday and I love it. It's just a basic pink, shimmery lipgloss. I'm quite partial to NYX Round Lipgloss though. I just love them. I should add that some people may have a problem with the scent and taste. It kinda reminds be of lemon pledge, but not overpowering. It really doesn't bother me:)
Lip Gloss -Jordana - InColor Lip Jelly Juicy Tints in Strawberries and Cream

I really don't like this AT ALL!! It's cheap; yes, but it's just not good. It smells like crayons and lasts about 15 sec after you put it on. It's basically just tinted vaseline. The color is pretty though that's why it gets 1 lippie:)
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! I have pretty oily skin and this is really good at controling oil. It's not perfect; I do have to reapply once or twice a day, but I can handle that!!! No break-outs yet. I don't really expect any since I have used all of these ingredients before, but MAC makeup has a way of ruining that for me. We shall see. Keeping my fingers crossed because I love it!!!

This is my first review, but I felt that I needed to write it so that no one else wastes there money on this brush. Short and sweet: the bristles are just too long. As mentioned in another review, the only way to make use of this brush is to add a rubber band. I must add that I absolutely LOVE the other EDM brushes, so this review is coming from a fan. Please don't waste your money.
