was looking for a primer/color corrector - and this is not it. no noticeable difference in color/texture or anything. *maybe* it seems to make my foundation last a tad bit longer.... but really this product doesn't really seem to o anything other than cost 28 bucks.
Lipstick -BeneFit Cosmetics - Rush Hour for lips and cheeks
dirtyrat 10/8/2009 4:19:00 PM
i found this to be the BEST everyday lip color. it is a tad bit drying, i wear MAC Viva Glam lipglass over it. have not used on cheeks - already have the perfect cheek color :)
Eye Shadow -MAC - Holiday Formal Black -Suedette- 6 Intense Eyes

this palette was my first MAC purchase ever. i got a ridiculous great deal on ebay - and therefor had no expectations to like it or for it even to be authentic MAC. i was blown away. this is probably the only palette i own that i use almost every single day. the colors are great - great pigment, blend well, stay put forever. love love love
Creme Royale is the only color i really use in this quad. bought on a whim b/c of the purple shade.....which sucks. creme royale rocks though - i a hoping i can buy this color as a single!
not impressed. this mascara is about as good as most drugstore brands for twice the cost. lame. CoverGirl Lash Blast is just as good if not better than this.
i was so excited to see such a pretty purple shade at MAC. alas ... this one is another miss. is it just the matte eyeshadows form MAC that suck?? doesn't blend well, no color payoff, chalky. i am getting tired of wasting money on MAC !!
i love this color - i find it goes well with MAC's humid . but that's about it. hit or miss with MAC shadows and this one is a miss. chalky, no color payoff, no staying power. however if you feel like spending 20 minutes trying to layer this color ... it is pretty
seems to be MAC eyeshadows are hit or miss. this one is def. a hit! perfect dark green, blends like a dream love love love
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

blacktrack is great for the upper lash line.. love the consistency it goes on nice and smooth. cannot use on lower lash line...it smudges everywhere in 5 seconds. would not purchase again since i think this pot will last me forver. but if i were to buy another black gel eyeliner - it would be Benefit's creaseless cream liner in .... black - i cant remember the actual color name. it stays on ALL DAY. i use fluidline on the top and the Benefit liner on the bottom lashes.
this was my first try as an eye shadow base... it was def. better than NO eye shadow base...but no the best. UDPP waaaay better.
i so very much wanted to love this ... had been toying with purchasing Benetint for awhile - the price was what scared me away. i have to say i am not at all impressed. i wanted it for a lip stain... liked the color ok - but hated how DRY it made my lips, even with gloss or lipbalm over it. also made my break out in tiny pimples all over my lip line. most painful ever. so i decided to try and make use of it as a cheek stain... broke out all over my cheeks. waited for it to clear up and tried again...same thing. the packaging sucks. you try to tighten the cap to prevent spills, and then the crappy threads on the lid break. so it leaks everywhere. it has been tossed into the garbage.

Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
dirtyrat 10/8/2009 1:06:00 AM
i have tried them all. first a Clinique Touch Base, then MAC paintpot .... then this. i ran six miles on a treadmill at my gym yesterday and i kid you not, pouring sweat and red in the face, but my eye makeup that i had already been wearing for 10plus hours was still PERFECT. applicator is a bit annoying but perhaps will just take some getting used to.
