Eyes -Bare Escentuals - Weather Everything Liner Sealer

This stuff STAYS ON!!! you could not rub this stuff off even if you tried! AMAZING!! I just dont like it cuz its only good for my lid color or liner. It dries pretty fast and once it dries, there is not way to blend it! This is why i can use it in my crease =(. Even so, it still gets a 5 for me because that is not what its meant for. One little drop is enought to work with. For $18 its expensive but i think it will take forever to go thru. The bottle is like an eyedropper size. I was using Too Faced Liquif eye before this and now im abandoning it!A+++++++++
I love this color! It is darker then MAC surreal, so im guessing along the lines of Steamy (which i dont have anymore to compare it to). Its a slightly darker minty green color. The texture is so velvety and no glitter like the other UD shadows. Looks killer over MAC shimmermint as a base.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Eye Shadow in Purple Haze

This is exactly a purple i have been looking for. its a TRUE medium purple unlike anything else i have. Staying power was good for me and a plus since it doesnt have the glitter in it like other UD shadows. I am a NC35, asian, for reference.
This is a very nice neutral go with almost everything color. Like a reviewer said before it is a nice creamy color with a hint of gold in it. I really like Urban Decay e/s overall as long as it does not have the glitter in it. Good pigmentation and staying power, but then again i use a base for everything. I just would not buy it again because i will never finish with it since i have zillions of e/s, and i think i have too many neutrals that i can sub for it.
This does remind me of MACs Chillblue, but i LOVE this one so much more. Chillblue is more flaky and silvery then Mary Jane. Mary Jane is pretty much a ice blue to me and is smooth on application. Highly pigmented and great staying power! I would definitely rebuy if i ever ran out.
This looks exactly like MACs Mulch! I really saw no difference in the two! If i HAD to pick something, i would say Mulch is a itsy teenie weenie bit more golden, but that is really being picky! Overall i like the Urban Decay shadows. They go on really smooth and have excellent staying power too! I just wouldnt rebuy because i have Mulch already.
Eye Shadow -Milani - Eyeshadow Quad 02 Sedona Sunset

This quad is hard for me to describe for some reason unknown. Im gonna start clockwise from the top left. #1 - I compared it to white wheat and Pleasurepurr, and i think it is a cross of both. Looks like MAC White Wheat but not as yellow and frosty. White wheat is still better. Looks like MAC Pleasurepurr but more yellow. #2 - Looks like a matte charcoal brown to me, but not as dark as MAC Charcoal Brown. Still would look good as a eyebrow filler. #3 - At first glance i thought this was the same brown as the Autumn earth quad, but when i swiped it on my arm there was once significant difference. This one has some silvery sparkles in it! Not real heavy but there are definitely sparkles. #4 - Not MAC jest or hush, those two are too peachy and too light compared to this color. This has more pink in it, but not as much so as Expensive pink. Its just a light/medium pinky peachy color. This quad did not stand out to me enough to purchase again if i ever ran out. The colors just did not grab my attention like the others.
Eye Shadow -Milani - Eyeshadow Quad 08 Autumn Earth

Milani is a good, cheaper alternative to many high end e/s on the market. With that said let me review the colors clockwise going from the top left. #1 - I think it is a frostier version of shroom. #2 - This is clover. Similar to MAC humid, but itsy bitsy tad lighter and flashes a hint of brown to me. #3 - This is spice. Similar to MAC Antiqued but a bit darker/bronzer. Still super similar. #4 - This is Sun goddess. I couldnt believe how similar this color is to MAC amber lights. If i really had to find a difference, i say MAC is frostier, but thats about it in my eyes. Over all a nice quad, good staying power even though it has a lot of repromotes. I always use a base so nothing fades on me quickly. Texture is good, but nothing compares to MACs Veluxe pearl, but that only goes for one color. I pretty much purchased Milani because i use my e/s wet sometimes and didnt want to get my MAC e/s crusty from the water.
This is a very beautiful quad. Im going to describe the colors clockwise from the top left. #1 is a light lavendar color, almost like MACs Digit. #2 is a bit more unique, when i applied it, it looked very different then the pot. It reflects different shades of purple. Gosh i cant even explain it! #3 is a dark plum. Like MACs Intoxicate but the MAC has more plum in it. #4 is a repromote of shock. I have a eye look in my profile.

This color reminds me of a Fall leaf. It is a reddish color that flashes pink and purple. I think it will look awesome in the fall paired with a gold e/s. Staying power is great but i do use a base all the time. I purchased this in a sample baggie which will last me quite a long time.
Eye Shadow -Aromaleigh - Pure Eyes Frost in AMARYLLIS [DISCONTINUED]
prettyangel 9/5/2005 5:00:00 AM
This looked almost identical with MACs Agate to me. Aromaleigh's description of it describes it as "Rich terracotta tones muted with taupe and a shimmering copper highlight." On me it looks like a very dark reddish/brownish color with reddish/copperish sparkles. I usually use this color on the outer crease but that is about it. Staying power is good as with most of their e/s i have purchased. I have this in a sample baggie and because its not a color that i will use often i will probably never run out and i also own Agate. As a result i will not purchase again for that reason.

I got a sample of this and i love it. Like the other reviewer said, it is a very light green with golden shimmer. It is NOT mint green. I use it over MAC chartru paint and it makes it look wonderful. As for staying power, it stays well, but then again i always use a base. The sample baggie actually contains a lot of product so if i ever run out, i might consider buying a full size one.
I hate the packaging because i dont like the pot, and i wouldnt rebuy because i will never get thru the tub in the first place!! I like that it is a orangey, apricot looking color. I did not think that it is too pale and i like for my more natural looks or underneath my peachy lipsticks.

i bought this in a samplea and loved it. A nice fruity color like the rater below said. Im a nc40 and it shows up very nicely on me. Kinda reminds of of MAC stereo rose in a way. Its a bright pinky/peachy/coral kinda color. I think it will even look nice on its own w/ no e/s and just a gloss. I cant rave enough about their products! Cant comment on the packaging since i bought a sample but the sample will last me awhile! i will repurchase if i ever do run out.
This is sooooo pretty!! I use it all the time for a quick look and i need some color on my face. I wish this wasnt LE but if i think about it, it will take me forever to finish the container. Its a very coral/rosy color. The best next to So Ceylon in my opinion. For reference im asian, a NC30 usually, but just got back from vacation and now im a NC40.
