Great drugstore foundation! I bought this in the color buff and it matches my skin perfectly (well not now because it's summer and I have a tan) but it matches my natural skin tone perfectly. It's pretty medium coverage, and not too matte or too shiny. I have oily skin and when I set this with powder it gives me a nice finish. The downside would have to be the packaging, it looks nice but I prefer pump foundations since they're less messy, but it's no big deal. I love this foundation and want to get another to match my summer skin!
As many of the reviews have said, this is a very light coverage concealer. I use it daily and I don't really mind the light coverage since I don't have too much to cover and this plus my foundation gives me pretty good coverage, but if you are looking to cover up really dark circles or big blemishes then this is not the concealer for you. It lasts pretty well when set with powder even on my oily skin. I would buy this again but I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, it didn't blow me away but I don't hate it either.
After hearing the rave reviews about the Naked palette, I gave in and went and bought myself one and it is worth the merit. All of the shades are beautiful neutrals mostly brownish shades many with undertones of different colors. (ex. darkhorse is slightly green, hustle slightly purple). The shadows are blendable and pigmented. As with many of the other reviewers, I agree that it could use some more matte shades. There are only two; naked, which is virtually the same color as my skin, and buck, which is an excellent crease/blending color for me. It's also a little pricey but considering you're getting 12 shadows, a little primer potion and a brush or eyeliner, it's a pretty good deal. Also mine came with the brush which I really like though I would've preferred the eyeliner. Now I want to get the Naked 2 palette!
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet

This was the first eyeliner I tried from Urban Decay and I am definitely impressed. I'd heard good things about them so I bought this one for a party. It's a gorgeous greeny-blue color and it's very smooth. It is long-lasting and goes on well on the waterline. The only cons are that it's on the pricey side and I've smashed the point a few times accidentally while putting the cap back on. Also I prefer twist up eyeliners since they waste less product as you don't have to sharpen them. I'm definitely want to get more of these eyeliners in other more everyday wearable colors!
