I have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. I love that is has long staying power. It lasted from 8am until 8pm, even after I worked out. I bought this because I have oily skin, but sometimes it is difficult to blend. The coverage is awesome. BUT I hate the packaging! Since it is in a squeeze tube bottle, excess product always comes out. It is wasteful and the other Make Up For Ever foundations come in a pump bottles. Since the product isn't cheap, it annoys me that I'm wasting product because of the packaging.
I love pairing this lippie with NYX's Purple Rain lipliner and it looks great! It makes my green eyes pop! I would wear this to work or anywhere. I have a few lip tars that I would mix to make the "Up the Amp" color, but when I'm on the go, I just swipe this gem on with the liner and it looks fabulous!
Bad to Bronze appears more of a warm toned color in the jar, but when I applied it to my lids (over NYX HD eye primer), it was more of a taupe color. It reminded me of a less shimmery version of Mac's Satin Taupe. I wanted to really test this shadow to see if it would crease over my eye primer, so I went to my 2hr. salsa class. After all of the sweating from my salsa class, the eyeshadow was still on my eyes and it did not crease at all! If you like taupe colors, you will enjoy this eyeshadow because it is long lasting. I don't know how long lasting it is on the lid without primer because I always use eye primer since I have very oily lids. I will not buy this color again because I have something similiar to it. I also bought Tough as Taupe, but I really did not like the color on me (it made me look tired). I hope Maybelline comes out with more neutral colors I would buy more.
