Eye Shadow -NARS - Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Goddess
makeupaddict76 11/25/2011 1:01:00 PM
Goddess is subtle champagne color, thought it might be gorgeous as inner color highlight but not pigmented enough for me and had problem with creasing on my lids and not very long lasting. For the price, I think there are better cream shadows.
This is my first NARS lip liner and bought upon reading all the great reviews but was extremely disappointed. It's very dry and chalky, it does not blend easily. Didn't work for me.
So glad to find this at my CCO for $10. Perfect for contouring my NC30-35, nicely pigmented, smooth, easy to blend, really natural looking.

Purchased at CVS for $11 but so worth the price! Pigmentation on the two taupe colors are incredible, can't get enough! Texture is so so smooth and really last a longtime w/out creasing. You can definitely use this palette from day to night. If you really like taupe colors, must purchase!
I would never actually go for this color but really surprised by the shimmery frost pinky-beige color, really pretty for the holidays. Need two coats but lasted a long time.
Lovely gray w/purple undertones, perfect for work, fall/winter, really lovin this color!
Really intense sapphire blue, easy to apply, opaque in one coat w/out any streaking. Lasted on my toes for 2 wks!
LOVE the color, dark plummy brown color, perfect for fall but w/two coats and SV, only lasted few days on my nails.
I bought this in light/medium and I don't find it brightening under eye, maybe the lighter shades will. But it has great coverage, both under my eyes and conceals blemishes well. Texture is soft and smooth, easy to blend. Will repurchase!

Purchased at Target for $8, it's seem to be doing the same thing as Amazing Cosmetics primer, goes on smoothly, does not clog up my combo skin and most importantly makes my foundation application glide on, especially with my Chanel Perfection Lumiere.
I couldn't pass finding this at my CCO for $10. Deep warm brown shade, lovely on the outer corner to deepen smokey look. Been loving this lately!

Tarte blushes does not disappoint. Looks muddy and dirty tan color in the pan but comes off as lovely rosey nude color, great for fall. Gives natural flush on the face. Excellent lasting power!
Skincare - Face -Estee Lauder - Take It Away total make up remover

Purchased from CCO for $18. It takes little more effort to remove my eye makeup and I take about 4 pumps to remove all my makeup and does need to scrub my face off to get all the products out. I like it better than the EL Re-Nutriv remover which has strong fragrance and texture is not as oily.
Lipstick -BeneFit Cosmetics - Silky-Finish Lipstick in Jing a ling

Nice bright pinky lipstick, texture is so smooth, glides on easily but doesn't last long on my lips.
It's not terribly expensive for an eye cream, ok product for moisturizing but didn't notice anything for lines and dark circles. It does brightens my eye area in the morning, contains alot of product, probably will last a longtime.
