I don't know why I keep buying Urban decay when the products aren't great. This color is gorgeous!! Fell in love with the smoothness of it. But, yes big but, the eyeshadow was fading within 2 hours of wear. In an average day I have to reapply this shadow twice. For $18 each you shouldn't have to put a primer on to make these last. And because everyone is comparing this to Satin Taupe, just know Mac is cheaper and it last all day (no primer).
This is a pretty pink blush with shimmer. It just doesn't work with my skin. For some reason this oxidizes on me and changes from a light pink color to a wine color by the end of the day. I don't know if it's all mineralized blushes or just this one. None of my other Mac blushes do this. I won't buy this again.

I was looking for a face wash that would work with my sensitive skin and this worked great. As others have said, you have to rub it into dry skin (I did this for 30 seconds) then add water which turns the oil into a lather (rub another 30 seconds). When I rinse this off it does feel like oil is still on my skin, but when I dry off nothing is on my face. This lasted me 2 months using day and night. My skin was not red or dry while I used this. Would buy again.

This bronzer is amazing. I have been using it for a month and love it. I'm medium skin tone and usually wear Nars Laguna or Benefit Hoola, this is better! Smooth, blends into skin, matte, and just looks natural. I use a flat powder brush and swipe all colors to use on cheeks, temple and neck. Perfect!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Extra Volume Hydra Collagen Plumping Mascara

I thought this mascara was going to be amazing. It made my lashes thick and long. I didn't have to curl my lashes, this made my lashes look like I had. Really it was perfect. Until a month of using it started to flake while I was wearing it. The flaking landed in my eyes making my eyes water like crazy and feeling like I had to flush my eyes out. I'm guessing it's the fibers. What sucks is there's still a ton of product left. With this only lasting a month, I'm better off buying an expensive brand mascara.

This products is just o.k. I didn't see an improvement in my skin at all. The only thing I did notice was if I was going to get a pimple, using this every night, by morning the pimple was gone. My skin is mostly dry so I don't have that issue. If you had mild acne I'd try this.
Primer/ Corrector -NARS - Pro-Prime Multi-Protect Primer SPF 30 PA+++

I need a sunscreen, but most don't work under foundation. This works great. It has a lotion consistency, very light and easy to apply. Even with my dry skin this works perfect. During summer I use this with my Nars Sheer Glow and Mac Mineralize skinfinish natural and it stays all day!
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Smokey eye brush set

This set comes with 4 eye brushes in a travel bag. The brushes themselves are also travel size. It has a lid, crease, lash line, and smudge brush. They are amazing. They deposit a lot of shadow and blend nicely. I used these with the Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral palette and it stayed all day without a primer. My only negative is how bulky the handles are.
Eye Shadow -Sonia Kashuk - Instructional Eye on Neutral Palette

This is one of the best palettes I have found. I use this everyday. All matte colors. They have light, medium and deep colors. All neutral. I have dark brown hair and use #8 or 9 on my brows. I use Mac painterly under all my shadows and these last most of the day. I might have to touch up in the evening, but otherwise amazing!
This is becoming one of my favorite eye shadows! I use this over painterly and put mulch or satin taupe in the crease. Easy everyday eye look that goes with any blush and lipstick.
Primer/ Corrector -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector

I bought this hoping it would work as good as my mac moisture cover, but it didn't. I tried this as a concealer under my eyes and as a brightener, both ways my dark circles showed through. I also tried this on my chin where I get some dry patches over my foundation..it was horrible. It dried my chin even more.
Worse product by Burt's Bees that I have ever tried. My husband tried using on his face and couldn't stand it. Gave it to me hoping I could use it on my legs. It was horrible! It made the razor skip on my legs and felt worse than shaving dry. Soap is better than this. Save your money!
Sunscreen -Coppertone - Water Babies Quick Cover Lotion Spray spf 50

I am only half way through with this and the spray is broken. Such a waste!
I do not like this lip butter. I wore it all day today. I reapplied 4 times from a little fading. By the end of the day my lips felt so dry and uncomfortable. I wouldn't say they are as bad as a long wearing lipstick, but very close to that feeling. Color is beautiful, staying power is nice, did not bleed, but chapped lips are not a look I'm going for. Would not buy again.
Beautiful color, but the fall out is not working for me. Even taking steps in application, the fall out occurs throughout the day with this. If they made this color without the glitter I'd buy it.
