Blush -Revlon - Matte Powder Blush - 002 Blushing Berry

The Revlon Matte Powder Blush is the worst blush I have ever owned. I purchased the blush in Blushing Berry from Walgreens the other day. I was extremely excited to finally get a high quality (in drugstore terms) blush, because I had been using a cheap four dollar CoverGirl blush. I hadn't read any reviews on this blush before I purchased it, but I bought it on a whim and decided that since it's Revlon it would be a good product. Oh boy was I wrong! I HATE this blush. I have spent a great deal of time swiping my finger across the blush. There is no color pay off what-so-ever. The only time I get even slightest bit of color is when I break it up a bit and swipe color with my finger, because the brush won't pick anything up. However, even that won't add any noticeable color to my extremely pale cheeks. All I can say is thank God this blush was 40% off. Otherwise, I would be in Walgreens arguing my butt off to get a full refund for this horrible blush. I would never recommend this to a friend, and I most certainly will never purchase another blush from Revlon again.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I swear buy the Urban Decay Primer Potion! It's a must have for my makeup bag. I have extremely oily eyelids that will breakdown eyeshadow within the first two hours of wear. However, with UDPP, I can wear any eyeshadow thinkable, high-quality or otherwise, without any creasing for at least 10-12 hours! I'm so impressed with this primer, and I honestly don't know how I went so long without it. It gives me beautiful, crease-free eyeshadow that's to die for. The quality of the actual primer is so great that I can see past the horrible packaging. The bottle is extremely cute, but I have to cut it open to get the rest of the product but I can live with that. I will keep repurchasing this product for years to come!
Maybelline XXL Extensions is my absolute favorite mascara. I use it every day. I already have somewhat long and thick lashes, but this mascara brings it up a few notches. My lashes look amazingly fake, and I love it. The only problem I have with this great mascara is that it flakes a bit, nothing too bad. I would definitely repurchase this product again and again.
