Powder -Tarte - Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder

I got this in a mini size in the Tarte Carried Away Collectors set. It's a paper white powder that is supposed to come out of these two little holes in the top. It's almost impossible to get out!! So that's really annoying and I didn't really see a difference when I put it on after my makeup..UGH.

I don't know if this stuff really works or not. I've never had a problem with really large pores, but I do have acne occasionally and this stuff sounded really interesting so I bought it in the full size. The full size is actually really small and you don't get that much for your money. The balm comes out light brown and spreads evenly and you can't see it on your face. I've used all of it, but I never really saw a big difference in the way my foundation looked...I would not repurchase.
I've never bought this in the full size because I could never justify spending like $30-$40 on primer. BUT I have bough several times in the small version with the twist cap at Ulta. I feel like this is the best primer I've tried. It's clear and smooths on the skin easily so a little goes a long way. It does seem to make makeup go on smoothly and stay longer. Overall I really like this primer.

THIS IS MY FAVORITE LINER EVER. I really love the smooth look of liquid liners, but they can be hard to apply. This is the perfect inbetween. It's not a liquid or a pencil. It glides on so smoothly with the provided brush. It doesn't smudge and it stays forever!! It is the blackest black and looks amazing. It's not for beginners though, because you have to have a steady hand to apply it evenly. My only complaint is that after a few weeks it tends to dry out. It's not really dry though and you can add a little water to it. It's still usable and looks amazing. I have bought this 2 or 3 times despite the hefty price because it lasts a really long time and looks beautiful! would recommend!
This is my favorite mascara to date!! I really love Benefit mascaras!! I also love badgal lash. This is kind of expensive, but it gives my lashes length and definition without clumping or smudging. It lasts all day for me and I LOVE this stuff!
BEST CURLER EVER. So glad i bought this on Sephora.com. It curls so much better than any other curlers I've tried and it doesn't pinch me. I use this every day and I love it so much!! Thank you Shiseido!!
This comes with a handy little brush on the cap to brush your eyebrows with. So nice! I got mine in dark brown and it matches my eyebrows perfectly!! Great quality for a low price. I would recommend!

I got this eyeliner in a Sephora kit. It is a brown color with sparkles in it. I prefer darker eye liners so I never really had much use for this. It should definitely be used for a night look because of the sparkles.

This is too dark for my eyebrows so I use it as an eyeliner. It works okay as an eyeliner for me. The cool thing about this is it's made to be either an eye liner OR an eyebrow pencil. If I had bought this in a color that matched my eyebrows it would be more useful for me.
I have this eyeliner in blackened sapphire, which is a dark blue. The color is so gorgeous!! The liner is really great. It is the kind you sharpen and comes with a smudger on the opposite end. The smudger is really useful to get a smokey eye look with the eye liner. I love this stuff. It glides on easily and stays, plus it's pretty cheap. YAY.
This is one of my favorite mascaras. I've already bought it twice. The packaging and name are adorable and the mascara makes my eyes pop. It's doesn't clump or smudge for me and lasts forever. It is kind of expensive though.
I got this mascara for free when I signed up for an Ulta membership. It's in a fat bright orange tube reminiscent of Covergirl's Lash Blast mascara. It's really an OK mascara nothing special. I'm glad i didn't purchase it. No volume or length really.
This didn't apply very evenly and smudged everywhere. When you close your eye it gets on top of your lid if you don't wait for it to dry completely before blinking. Liquid liners just suck these days..sigh.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion

I've already bought this eyeliner twice. I LOVE it. I first tried it when I was looking for a black liner and a makeup guru friend recommended it. I was kind of turned off at first by the expensive price but man am I glad I tried it! It glides on like nothing else. Seriously. It's soo pigmented and creamy it's truly the blackest black you can get. I love this stuff, but I use it up really fast. My only problem with this eye liner is that it can tend to smudge. Especially on the bottom of your eye and if you put it in your water line. It smudges through out the day or if you touch your eyes at all so you need to bring a wet makeup wipe to clean it off sometimes. I still love this stuff though because there is nothing like it.

I don't know if they're still selling this at VS, but i picked this up in the check out line last year. I have it in nightlight which is a black with silver sparkles. It's a really high quality liner. The sparkles are small so it doesn't look gaudy, just pretty. I would use it more for a night time look though. It stays on and doesn't smudge. I would recommend!!
