Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"
sam23 11/4/2012 11:52:00 PM
I looooove this palette like none other. The colors are magnificent, you can mix the two sides and use the dark green with the copper lid color, I just can't say enough what a great palette this is. The colors are just as pigmented as any high end eyeshadow, and honestly I like them better than UD because they are soft and pigmented, but I always always have creasing problems with UD eyeshadows but these are just dry enough that they don't crease, while remaining soft and pigmented. I looooooove this palette, what a great value, at $5 it's less than a dollar per shadow. The only bad thing is that they colors are so soft they can get ruined rather easily, I had this palette shipped to me as a swap extra and about 2/3rds of the copper color sadly just disintegrated, shattered entirely in the shipping process but there's still enough left for plenty of use and that was the only one that broke at all, the rest were in perfect shape. I will definitely purchase a new one when I've used up the remainder of the copper color!

This is a great primer! I got a sample of it at sephora and it makes my face perfectly primed and ready for my Kat von d foundation. I think you need to wear it with a dry/matte foundation so you don't end up with a ton of excess moisture if you are normal or oily. It makes my makeup last all day as well! It hasn't made me break out at all although I'm not at all prone to break outs. I love it.

I'm not exactly decided on this yet because it seemed to become more viscous after opening/using so if it got any worse I will edit this (haven't used it in like a week because I've been using a high end sample). But I can't stress to you enough how far the tiniest amount goes. If you slather it on in a thick layer, you will get a greasy face. I use a blob just smaller than a pea for my whole face and down my neck. I only use this with my Kay Von d foundation because it's a fairly dry foundation. It doesn't work at all with my nyx liquid foundation, if I use it under that it just blends out into nothing. I brought this down from four to three lippies because it is very very viscous. I prefer a primer that is more solid

I really like this, the color is a nice pinky nude as others have said and it's very creamy and moisturizing. I don't even need a balm under it! I just edited this because I have at least half left and it won't twist out of the tube anymore. this stinks!

I just bought this with my 20% off at Ulta in Polynesian pink and I think it might be an ok dupe for Nars o. The price was great and I love the color it's gorgeous peachy sort of pink and it shimmers but much less so on the cheeks. I only have one issue with it and that's that it kind of dissolves when a brush touches, there's a lot of fall-out from the packaging which is kind of a waste, but I still love it, I might need to try other colors now!
omg this is gorgeous and silky soft! sooo nice I got it in a swap and I LOVE it. it just feels so nice on the face, hasn't shed so far, great for evenly distributing powder foundation or setting powder over a foundation.
I love this, it's perfect for putting bronzer right into the hollows below your cheek bones, I use it every day! it doesn't shed too much that I've noticed and the hairs aren't silky soft but they aren't like scratch your face rough either.
I got this last weekend in search of an everyday sort of lipstick and this definitely fits the bill! It's very subtle but it's nice that it's not exactly the color of my lips, nor is it nude. It makes your lips just a shade or two brighter. I have only one complaint which is that when I first used it it seemed like my lips were kind of sluffing off their dry layer which is gross! but it seems to be solved if I just apply it over balm.
Perfect bronzer for pale people! It's so lovely, the best bronzer I've found so far. It isn't orange at all and it contours beautifully! But if you prefer a matte bronzer, this isn't for you. it's somewhat shimmery with slightly gold undertones. I love it. I got this in miniature form in a box with a mini blush in dollface and they are a great combination.
Love it, it's so nice and lengthening and volumizing, lasts all day. It looks great, it even holds my curl a little, my eyelashes are incredibly straight but it holds them far from pointing down (which is how they would be if they had their way). I've been using the sample tube that came with my eyelash curler for a few weeks now, I think it'll go the full three months like a normal tube. I will definitely pick up the regular size tube when I'm out of this and my physicians formula.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface

I just bought a two pack of mini's that included this and a bronzer and I love them both! this blush is a gorgeous color and it's an awesome price if you get this combo pack with the bronzer mini for $15. I highly recommend it, it's a really nice natural pink color but it's still noticeable and it's very long lasting and pigmented.
this color is quite garish and completely unnatural looking. it's pretty much a neon orange. I don't like it at all, it's not in the least bit wearable. I like the creaminess of NYX lipsticks but they don't last through anything.
I got this as a swap extra and I would totally buy it because I love the tinted gel! I don't use the powder side because it's too light so I set it with a nyx shadow that I was using alone on my brows before and find that they get less flaky with the gel, I've had a lot less "brow dandruff" if you will. it's not too pigmented, perfect for someone with naturally sparse brows. I even like the applicator, I just kind of use the angled side to put the gel on and blend it out with my finger and I use the tiny-eyeshadow brush looking end to do my nyx shadow over the top, it's very small and precise, I like it a lot. actually you could probably even use the powder side as an eyeshadow, it's fairly pigmented.
Love it! I just bought it, and I'm very impressed. I looked at reviews first and I'm so glad I bought this. Just one thing--don't spray this on your part. I bet everyone else already knows this, I don't know why I did it but I did. oops. anyway, it doesn't leave white residue, you don't have to press too hard on the nosil to get a good amount out of it, I have other products in my hair so I'm not sure if it's this but my hair is extremely bodacious today :) It eliminates oil, it has a very very mild scent, nothing that people will smell if they don't have their nose right in your hair, I was worried about the scent cause I like to wear one perfume and I don't want it to be overpowered by anything else. I like this! it should significantly reduce the amount of times per week that I need to wash my hair.
I like this product, unlike most people. I think it helps quite a bit to prevent chipping although it's better over polishes that already have good staying power. I haven't noticed it bubbling as some have. It does have some nuances, I think you're better off painting your nails one day and applying this the next because otherwise it takes forever for everything to dry. I like it, it seems to give a nice coat of shine and a little extra lasting power. You just have to give it plenty of drying time and not expect it to work miracles on cheap polishes. I should include--I think mine was only $6-7 so I feel like I got my moneys worth, if it had been $10.50 I would be really disappointed.
