Liquid -Maybelline - SuperStay Makeup - New Version
KatDeClay13 6/2/2012 5:36:00 AM
This has parabens (perservatives) in it which is extremely bad and unhealthy for your face long term it will age you and is linked to cause cancer and depending on your skin type you can expect to breakout when using this. This product clogs my pores and i have broken out every time I have worn it and i get extremely oliy after a while plus dry patches. I DON'T recommend this product to anyone under ANY circumstances especially people who are acne prone, anyone that has sensitive or combination skin. It feels extremely heavey and cakey plus it gets terribley oily after a few hours yet at the same time looks chalky this is weird i know but this experience with the foundation has made me age quickly and just completely let me down. I will NEVER be buying this stuff EVER again. this product is toxic to the face. (litteraly) I cannot find my match for this product either i have tried multiples but every color seems too pink or yellow for my face. The only good thing i can say is you get full coverage. Thats about it but it is definitely not worth buying again there are other foundations that can give you just as good coverage (if not better) without all the cons of this product. I also noticed when i put it on my face it some what matte and dewy i really cant tell with this one but it didnt seem to have ANY glitter or shimmer in it when i put it on my face. (which is fine i go for a matte finish anyway) but i accidentally spilt a large amount on a piece of white paper and noticed that after it dried it was EXTEREMLY glittery. I dunno i was turned off by that. never ever getting this stuff again... also be sure to take this off with a MAKEUP REMOVER not a scrub if you scrub before using a makeup remover your scrubbing makeup into your skin...NOT good you dont wanna do that. if you cant afford or do want to go out and buy makeup remover just mix two equal parts of witch hazel and olive oil to get it off. I cant imagine wearing this in heat I have had it melt right off my face so I dont even think its good for that. I believe there are SO MANY products out there that do not have parabens (Tarte) and are overall better formulated ex. estee lauder double wear if you want a true longwear matte finish. I live in arizona and it was 110 degrees outside i kid you not the maybeline was like chalk juice streaked on my face I didnt realize it looked like this till i got home. So embarrassing... i was standing in the mirror laughing!
Eye Shadow -Sephora - Colorful Mono Eyeshadow - Aspen Summit (23)
KatDeClay13 6/2/2012 4:06:00 AM
I got this as a christmas gift a while back since then I have absolutely LOVED this shadow. Its so beautiful I have had it for a few years now and I still continue to use it. I have used it to tint and mix with other colors, highlight eyes,(not my face) and just worn this alone on my eyes lightly. All ways have seemed to work fantastically for me. I am medium to fair skined with warm undertones but i tend to wear a fair foundation all the time so for me this never has seemed chalky or white looking on me. I think if you have darker or tan skin this might not be a good high light for your face maybe try something that has a tint of pink or brown in it. But as for my eyes using this has been amazing i usually almost always go for a matte finish but this is so beautiful, pigmented, it can be sheer its totally buildable easy to blend especially with other colors, and lasts forever its like a magnet i cannot stop myself from wearing it. I highly recommend for anyone who loves pearl shimmery type of colors like this. If your not sure if this is for you then all i can say is to swatch it. and i will definately be buying this again its just an essential for me.
Mascara -Tarina Tarantino - Fleur De Lash in Black Opal
KatDeClay13 6/1/2012 9:13:00 AM
This mascara is amazing I love it! I just ran out but when I was using it I used it every day because it separated my lashes, gave them volume, and didnt flake or transfer. It gave me a more fuller natural black lash look and i love that it didnt look cakey at all. I love the brush because i know im going to be getting fuller separated lashes I use it even to brush through my other mascaras i have applied. If you dont like natural full lashes then dont get this you will be disappointed. I will be buying this again soon.
this lipstick is so gorgeous! I love the color, its just not for me. I am fair to medium with warm undertones and I cannot comfortably wear this lipstick. Its a shame its so pretty I wish I could find a look to go with this but nothing i do makes it flattering on me. It just looks weird on me.Its a coppery bronze brownish coral color.I dunno its hard to discribe the color. for me which is hard to say just isnt wearable. I wear extreme colors darks and brights especially reds and purples but this was just too much for me. I loved how light weight and creamy it was though. Its really NOT for every skin type!! I wouldnt buy this again its just not right for me but if you can manage this color and it looks good then kudos to you.
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - Meteor-eyes Baked Glitter Eyeshadow Asteroid
KatDeClay13 6/1/2012 6:48:00 AM
This shadow is so beautiful to look at it looks good when packed on there was just way too much fall out not that much glitter that shows up which is fine with me Im not a big fan of glitter. I like to use small amounts of this shadow because its pigmented but doesnt blend well and once again too much fall out. This product should be packed on. Luckily its not that expensive it affordable and the packaging isnt that flattering. I would have to say I would not buy this product again because there is just better quality eye shadow out there and if im going to wear a color like this i want it to be the best of quality.
Okay sorry i dont want to bring this review down and I absolutley love UD but I was COMPLETELY disappointed with this lipstick. I am fair to meduim with warm undertones. I LOVE purple dark lipsticks I am a sucker for them but this was like a sheer lip gloss that taste and smelled like doo doo no matter who you are i can garauntee you will hate the taste. I dont ever like to wear it because it taste and smells so horrible. worst lipstick i have bought.(really wish i didnt have to say tht but its true) I really love pigmented lipsticks reds pinks purples and even darker ones but this... lets just say i wont be buying it again. If your not looking for a dark lipstick this is for you its some what buildable kind of. If you want a strong dark lip DONT get this lipstick. I guess every now and then I can appreciate the purpley color it does give me but i just have to try not to get it in my mouth. I would like to add that the texture is nice and creamy! I really wish it was the color it looks like on the stick... I loved the packaging though its super cute. If your a person that doesnt care about taste WHAT SO EVER or doesnt want complete pigment then maybe you will like this. ha all i can say is SWATCH when ever you go to UD.
I love this product the color is so beautiful if you are comfortable with the crazy vibrant colors urban decay offers them you will love this if not dont get it. If you arent used to wear bold colors like this your best bet is to swatch it before you buy it. My only problem with this product is that there is quite a bit of fall out but if you pack it on and carefully blend you can achieve the look you want with hardly any fall out. This product is buildable and is extremely pigmented. Its good if you dont want to wear it too heavily and is beautiful when packed on. Overall I loved this shadow and highly recommend to anyone who isnt afraid of color.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
KatDeClay13 6/1/2012 5:21:00 AM
This was my first eye primer without even knowing about urban decay or what the rep. of this was I bought it because I just needed a primer. So far I havent used any other eye primers because this one does the job! Its amazing. Its like a magnet for shadow. stays on never creases and I have extremely oily lids like no other. I was pleasently suprised how good this primer is. It does dry out after having it for a while (a couple years) but it will last you FOREVER. A little bit goes a long way. I really have to say though the packaging looks a little rediculous. I feel like when i pull it out im gonna play with a disney alladin toy. But i leave it at home because there is no need for me to ever reapply its primer and thats what i expect. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a great eye primer.
I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK. if your going for a classic red lip this is the product to use! Its so matte smooth and the color is like nothing Ive ever seen.If you dont like matte lipstick dont use this lipstick!(i cannot stress this enough) If you have chapped lips used a lipscrub! If you feel its too drying dab chapstick on it! (love doing that highly recommend it) All the work is totally worth it the texture is so vibrant and velvety soft and smooth I cannot say enough about this lipstick. I have been searching for the true blue classic red lipstick for me for 3 years and I have found it! I didnt see anyone mention for some reason the smell of this lipstick. It smell so delicious! It smells like cookies! I wanted just to eat it! Super light weight lasts forever but easy to get off. If you find that it bleeds on you use lip liner,lip primer, or dab some transparent powder all around your mouth. But it doesnt taste like anything which I love because if it were to taste like something good I would end up having no lipstick on by the end of the day... EDIT: I dont recommend using anything as a base for the lipstick especially petroleum based its going to slip right off and not last just use a lip scrub or exfoliate your lips before hand. Then i would say AFTER you apply the lipstick to dap on some chapstick it WILL last and be just as pigmented. Dont put carmex over it. (bad experience)
Okay my skin is extremely oliy and I get dry patches and I have rough textured skin but after using this it seems to work amazingly perfect for my kin type and smoothes everything out. I only use a pea sized amount and it seems like it would be a problem for anyone who has sensitive or oily skin. As for my skin type it worked wonders. And it gives my skin a matte finish which is what I go for. I just use it when I think I absolutely need to though cause its crazy expensive!
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - Timewise Age Fighting Moisturizer
KatDeClay13 6/1/2012 3:58:00 AM
Please everyone I need to warn you this product has harsh chemicals and parabens in it which is extremely bad for your face. I used this product when I was about 16 and stoped when I was 18...this was a complete disaster! My dad actually said it looked like my face was getting older without me saying anything about this moisturizer. this product actually aged my face made my skin really rough and older looking after a while. I thought It was okay but this is a bad product for your face long term if you want to use it every now and then thats fine. EDIT: okay i have used this for years but for the past two years or so i have run out and have been using other products. For the years i did use this i aged terribely. My skin is still recovering. I watch what i put on my face. anyway I found out that there is a good amount of methylparaben in this which is one of the parabens that is proved to have a reaction with uvb rays and damage skin cells causing your skin to age. dramaticly. I am saddend by this because i used it for years and i am paying the price now.
