Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
lilblue10 3/5/2012 11:01:00 PM
I really liked this at first, this was the first primer I tried and it made my eyeshadows so vibrant and they stayed put all day, but after a month or so the product separated, it was really oily and wouldnt prevent creasing at all. I tried shaking or squeeshing it but it didnt work. In my opinion Urban Decay Primer Potion is MUCH better

LOVE this ! It never fails me, I've had the same tube for almost a year and it's still as fresh as the first day I got it. My eyeshadows NEVER crease even after 15 hours, and the colors are still super vibrant !
This looks more like a pale peachy brown on my skin rather than pinkish brown but I still like it, it's very natural and since I was very tired of my usual pink blush this is perfect. The pigmentation is good and it shows up nicely on my NC20 skin !
I love this blush so much !! It's a peach color with a subtle gold sheen which is sooo pretty on my NC20 skintone. I love it for summer but can't help wearing it in the winter too haha. It doesn't emphasize my big fat pores, it just gives the perfect sunkissed color to my cheeks. The staying power is the same as any Mac blush, 5-6 hours but I don't mind. if you're tired of your average pink blush this is perfect !
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free

This does nothing but leave a film on my skin. It doesn't moisturize at all and doesn't absorb into the skin either, its completely useless . And I don't even have dry skin, I have combination skin so I have a few dry patches and my skin is absolutely the same after I put this on. The only good thing is that it didn't make me oily
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Clarifying Pressed Powder
lilblue10 3/5/2012 10:09:00 PM
The color selection is awful, all of the shades i've tried were always a bit off . The coverage is quite good, still needed concealer though. The downside of this powder is that it looks really powdery and quite cakey, it doesnt melt into the skin which make it quite obvious that you're wearing foundation. I didn't have Mac Fix + when I was using this, that probably would've helped.This didnt break me out. For 1$ this a great powder, but I think they're better powders out there for sure. I would not repurchase
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - F25 Tapered Face Brush (was SS138)

I haven't found a use for this brush. It's not so good for applying powder,it's too big for blush/contour/highlight. It's good to apply bronzer but generally don't wear bronzer anywhere else then in the hollows of the cheeks. Other than that this brush is really soft and doesn't shed !

I bought this brush to use with cream blushes, and it works really well for that but then I realized I didn't really like the way cream blushes look on me so now I have no use for it cause I already have my F80 and F82 for my foundation.. It doesn't work that well with powder blushes and its too big and dense for contour/highlight. So I really don't know.. Anyway I'm still giving it 4 lippies cause the brush its really soft and great but just kinda useless to me
Great brush for the crease ! I use it mainly for that, but I sometimes use it to blend out edges and it works well too. It applies color wonderfully, its perfect for when I want a softer look. I would definitely repurchase
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - SS168 Large Angled Contour Brush
lilblue10 3/5/2012 9:53:00 PM
This brush is awesome ! I think its my most used brush of all the brushes I own. I use it for blush,highlighter,contour,powder. I actually love it so much that I got 2 of them . It never sheds, and it's just so soft and perfect !
I like this brush but it sheds so much ! Everytime I use it I end up having to pick at my face,trying to remove all of the little hair ! I've had it for quite a while but never really used it and only washed it once or twice so I'm hoping it'll get better after some time, I'm still giving 3 lippies cause its really soft and dense.
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - E35 Tapered Blending (was SS222)
lilblue10 3/5/2012 9:47:00 PM
I love this brush so much for blending ! I love it better than the E25 for that cause it takes less time to get raid of the harsh lines.It's not so good for applying color but then again it's a blending brush and it isn't supposed to.
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - F35 Tapered Highlighting (was SS165)
lilblue10 3/5/2012 9:44:00 PM
I'm in love with this brush ! It's really soft and so multipurpose, I use it mainly to contour and highlight and it does such a great job at it. It's really easy to be precise with this brush. It has never shed and haven't lost its shape but I always use a brush guard. I would repurchase
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - F05 Small Contour (was SS109)
lilblue10 3/5/2012 9:40:00 PM
I thought I would love this brush but I don't. It's too dense and small to contour and kind of scratchy, I'd rather use the F35 for that purpose because it makes it less obvious and it's easier to blend with that brush.I would not repurchase
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - E45 Small Tapered Blending (was SS226)
lilblue10 3/5/2012 9:36:00 PM
This brush is so great and unique ! I use it for the crease and I prefer it over a normal pencil brush, cause it's pointed but fluffy,which I like because it does precise work but blends at the same time. It doesn't shed and haven't lost its shape but I use a brush guard so that may be why. I would repurchase
