Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles

I bought this in Honey. I thought it's supposed to be the darkest shade. But it's still way too light for me. I tried using it for my undereye, and the result is disappointing. The white cast is obvious, and people are commenting that i look like i haven't had enough sleep :( I like the packaging tho, a good alternative to doe foot applicator.
I bought this product because of two things (based on reviews online): good pigmentation and longevity. But it didn't deliver both things. The color barely show up on my NC42 skin. A couple of heavy strokes are needed for it to show up. And it doesn't last that long too. And it's expensive. Just so dissapointed :(
I bought this in a set so I think the price is really reasonable. The shade I got was dead on and I love that the foundation controls shine for quite a while. You can easily top this with a finishing powder to make it last longer. I notice that my blush on lasts longer too when I wear it on top of this foundation. I only wear foundation on special occassion so that's why I wont be repurchasing, cause it would take a while to finish this product, and I think imma try to purchase the original double wear instead.
Sunscreen -Ocean Potion - FACE Potion Clear Zinc SPF 45

I was never one to wear sunblock. I mean, i always opt for a multitasking product. For sun protection, I always used Physicians Formula tinted moist. with high spf every day. But the thing is, it makes me super oily. But i'm afraid to start using an actual sunblock cause I have sensitive skin. After reading raves about this sunblock, I decided to bought it thinking that it's dirt cheap, and even if it doesnt work for my face, I could always use it for my body. And boy i'm so glad i bought this. It's texture is like a regular sunblock, i was a bit worried because it's a bit thick. But after leaving it on my face for a few minutes, I top it with my mineral foundation. And believe it or not, my face is not as oily as usual. And no white cast issue for me (i have tan skin). I just wish it comes in a tube to make it more sanitary. But overall, I love this product, and WILL DEFINITELY repurchase.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Cat Eyes Waterproof in feline black

This mascara is great, it gives great effects to my lashes, it's waterproof, easy to remove and the wand brush is definitely a plus. Sadly, sometimes during the day when I rub my eyes, the product somehow gets to my eyes and it stings like hell! That's the only con for me. I will not buy this again as I've never repurchase the same mascara twice before. But if you don't have sensitive eyes, this would be perfect for you cos it's dirt cheap (and that's always a good thing, right?) :)
This is a gorgeous color indeed but it's not for my liking. It's too frosty plus when I wear it, it looks like I'm wearing lipgloss. That's not a good thing. The packaging is cute tho.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

This doesn't work for me sadly. I have very oily lids. After I finished my original UDPP, i decided to buy this cos this was the new release and I was curious. Plus the color is beautiful so I got convinced. Altho the color really is beautiful, my eyeshadows would crease after 3-4 hours. That suck. Plus the packaging is not effective, I had to cut it open and move the product to a new jar. It comes in handy tho when u want to do a quick touch to your eyes and also for highlighting.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

This would be my HG. This works just as well as UDPP (only the original one, Sin didn't work for me). I have very oily lids, when I was using UDPP Sin my eye makeup would only last for approx 3-4 hours. That's not enough for me cause I work for 8-9 hours and I don't like seeing my eye makeup all ruined at the end of the day. With this, my eye make up stays until I remove it. There's nothing better than to look in the mirror and see that your make up stays put. I purchased this with the palette so I think it's a very good buy but I do still think the price of the primer itself is very reasonable looking at the quality. Plus I think it's way better than UDPP because the packaging is way better. THIS IS A MUST HAVE! *updated - March 2012 it doesn't work anymore :( my eyeshadow would crease even before lunch time. I don't know what I did wrong. Arggh!
