Oh, this stuff is dreadful. Words cannot express how disappointing this product is. I used it for a week and a half to give it a good try but its just awful. It does not go on smoothly, it sticks to primer in clumps, it does not stay on all day and I do not have oily skin. It seems to magnify every flaw and makes the skin look terrible and I have fairly decent skin.
Love, love, love. The colors are all fabulous and to the reviewers who don't like that the colors are so light--that's what I love about them. I am uber-pale and most colors are way too dark for me.
I think the foundation is good if you have oilier skin. I do not and it was very drying. It has great staying power and it does melt into the skin and looks fabulous--until the dry/flaky patches start appearing.
Eye Shadow -Cargo - Cargo Eyeshadow palette in Warm Neutral

I love this palette. Not sure what the issue is about separation b/w the colors as some have mentioned, I don't know of any shadows that have miles of space b/w the different colors. Anyway, this is perfect for me because the colors are so sheer and light. I'm so pale that eye shadow normally looks quite garish on me. Perfect neutral colors and so easy to apply, they are really velvety. The case however, leaves a lot to be desired. The top broke off at the hinges almost immediately and I keep it in a drawer, not even carrying it around. I use a rubber band to keep the lid on.
Love these cheek stains. I have several and cannot keep myself from trying out each new one that comes along. I don't understand the complaints of stickiness as there is no stickiness after you blend it in. Gives you a beautiful natural looking glow.
This is the second jar of this I have bought. I love the primer but in both instances the pump stopped working and I have had to dig the product out with a stick of some sort. Until the packaging is improved I will not repurchase. Too bad because I really like the product.
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Eye Shadow Trio in Ebb & Flow

I love this trio. The colors are beautiful and blend well. An eyeshadow primer is necessary but I need a primer with all shadows so not a big deal.
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Splash

I love this duo. The teal shade is just right--has just the right amount of blue and green. It blends well so there's no stark line of teal. Just perfect.
Foundations -Smashbox - High Definition Healthy FX Foundation

This is absolutely dreadful. I am shiny and oily within 20 minutes of applying this. There is little to no coverage and it turns orange very quickly. This is all very odd because I do not have oily skin. Would never buy this again.
Eye Shadow -Almay - Almay Intense i Color for Hazel
Corrinne 2/9/2010 12:00:00 PM
I usually love Almay shadows however, these trios (all of them) are dreadful. They are WAY too shiny for everyday use. I love the colors, but they need to be matte not shiny. I feel like the Tin Man in them.
This is the Tarte cheek stain I reach for most often (I currently own 6 of the colors). It is the perfect blend between peach and pink. It shows up well on my very fair skin but doesn't overpower me. I don't have a problem w/the packaging, just use your fingers.
First of all, I love all the Tarte cheek stains so I am definitely biased. I really love this color though. I am a VERY fair redhead and this is the perfect color. Gives my cheeks a natural pinky glow but not so much that Iook clown like. Definitely would repurchase if I ever run out.
Reading some of the reviews makes me wonder if people read the product info. Its a lengthening mascara, not a volumizing mascara. Anyway, I like it for my bottom lashes b/c it doesn't smudge or flake, however, it irritates my eyes. It must be the tubing portion of the formula b/c I have been using Double Extend for years with no problems.
This is terrible. If you want to look like a racoon by noon use this. Not only does it smudge but it also does nothing for the lashes.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This stuff is great! I live in a hot, humid area and eye shadow and liner is gone by mid-morning if I don't use this primer. The packaging could be a bit better but the product is fantastic.
