when hearing reviews on this brush i thought, how can sure a cheap brush be good? especially from ELF? (im a whore for high end!) so i decided to pick it up as it was only $3 and lo and behold, i LOVED it. it really blends the product very well into the skin to achieve that "airbrushed" look. so soft as well. sure it does shed here and there but for $3 how can you complain? if the shed issue was resolved i think this would be a HG from the cosmetic goddesses!!! i think everyone should have one, or two, of these in their collection. also, i like to spray the brush with a little of MAC fix + to make the foundation go on like a dream.
i have oily skin which is acne prone so you can guess how hard it is to find a lightweight moisturizer. i tried this out and it was LOVE. my pores shrunk, i didnt break out, it kept my skin matte and super soft all day long, and best of all, my skin was looking its best while i used this! it also smells just heavenly and feels like velvet as you apply it. i just wish it wasnt so expensive!!!
i LOVE this shadow. it is the most pigmented black i have EVER come across. they give you a good amount of product for your money and it blends greatly. i will continue to use this black forever. sugarpill eyeshadows have never failed me.

this is an OK moisturizer. while it doesnt have a "long lasting matte finish" as it claims, it does not break me out and feels nice when applied on the skin. i only wish it did have some mattifying properties.
Eye Shadow -Sugarpill - Poison Plum Pressed Eyeshadow

i love this color. very very bright purple.. beautiful color pay off. probably my favorite purple eyeshadow..
LOVE this as a highlight. sugarpill has done it again! very pigmented. :)
ive been using this product for a while now and ive noticed how it works for me... unfortunately it isnt a good "everyday" moisturizer... ive noticed i have broken out from it.. but i will say its VERY good for special occasions when you really need to control the oils of the skin. i only use this for those long nights i know i will be out at a club, dancing and sweating alot... but still.. even tho its a good "special occasion" product, its definately not a good every day product... :(
this is a great brush cleanser for spot cleaning. i absolutely love it. cleans my brushes perfectly for the next use and dries quickly. i think it should come in a spray bottle to avoid wasting product.. but you can always put it in a spray bottle of your own. over all... the best spot cleanser for brushes..
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

this is a HOLY GRAIL product. since using this a couple of years back, i can honestly say it is the best thing to happen to eyeshadow.. it keeps it in place all day and all night and it really makes the color POP! my skin is oily and my eyelids are oily as well but with this it prevents the shadow from creasing. the only con is of course... the packaging as everyone knows. some people cut it open and store it in another container or they bend the wand. i know that Urban Decay has made new packaging in a tube which i believe would be so much better. ill probably purchase that one as soon as im done with this "old" packaging. but other than the horrible packaging, it is the BEST eyeshadow primer.. ever.. i will never go to anything else again.

its very soft and gentle to the touch. the only thing is its a bit difficult to completely clean but it isnt as big of a deal as i would have thought. also the packaging is a pain. but the brush itself is amazing. if you do not have this brush, i highly suggest you purchase it. makes my skin look so nice! i have also used it for powder and it works great!

i really do like these wipes. they feel refreshing and take off most of my makeup. (the reason i say most is because i use revlon colorstay foundation with primer and powder along with alot of different contouring, highlighting and crazy eyeshadows..:P ). but it does feel nice.. they dont sting as much as the mac wipes did.. ill never use those again!!! but i do like these. just wish they would do it all in one wipe! (but that would be a HG! lol)
finally got this mascara today. i would say it is pretty good. its doesnt clump up my lashes and really does lengthen them but not as much volume as i thought. it is still a pretty good mascara and i will probably be using this along with my covergirl lashblash. but i LOVE it for not clumping up as much as most mascara can.
Cleansers -Clinique - Liquid Facial Soap - Oily skin

i really wanted to like this product. but it was horrible. at first when i used it, i noticed it made my skin VERY oily... and i thought maybe it was because my skin was getting used to a new product. used it for a couple of weeks until the one night i went out to a club and took a look at my makeup and it was HORRIBLE! my makeup was literally MELTING off my skin.. and this was in november!!!!!!!! and i barely danced. it was all the oil from my skin. i knew it wasnt any of my other products because ive used them before and they never did this.. it was this soap. this is the WORST PRODUCT i have ever used...
used to use this but i would notice it wouldnt last that long.. faded away quickly. i would stick to revlon colorstay...
makes the lip colour stay on alot longer. great base. conditions lips and gets them ready for lipstick. nice scent as well.
