Pressed Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder (Pressed)

Great product, great packaging! Keeps my oilyness at bay and sets my concealer with little to no creasing. LOVE this!
WOW!! That pretty much sums up my feelings about this concealer. I was switching off between MUFE and MAC Select Moisture Cover - but a few hours later I had little coverage and had to re-touch. Such is not the case with MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer! Instantly brightens up my eyes and conceals my undereye circles (I use a #224 brush to apply) and I set it up with some Prep + Prime Translucent powder...and I'm good from 7am until I get home from work around 6. HOURS of long wear!!!
As a fan of KimK's makeup, I purchased this lip gloss...and I was not disappointed in the least. The color is beautiful - whether using it bare on the lips or to top off another color. The price is steep for a lip gloss - but the texture is so creamy (not tacky) and the color is amazing =)
I found this product to be really amazing! The color stayed on my lips for hours and didn't dry out at all. I applied the stain then with my ring finger, evenly smoothed it over my lips...then applied the balm. Even through the summer heat and on the beach, the color stayed true and vibrant - loved it!!
MAC products are just awesome and this blush is no exception! So natural and compliments just about anyone! My only low rating was for the price - but then again, most HE products are expensive
I love everything about this palette! Staying power...beautiful colors...well pigmented!
Eye Shadow -Kat Von D - True Romance Palette in Poetica

While I absolutely love the colors on this palette - the FALLOUT is horrible!!! As soon as the brushes hit the color....it begins...and then it continues to worsen once applied to the face. Again, beautiful colors - awful fallout. I will not be purchasing any KVD eyeshadows again. =(
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! My only 'con' about this product is that not all of my nails were able to fitted properly. I had to use the closest size available and sacrifice the sides of my nails without design/polish. However, who else (besides me) stares that closely at my nails? No one! I have received compliments from random girls every single day since wearing them!
HOLY GRAIL!!! I have been using this product for years and will never switch to another. It never lets me down and without sounding like a Maybelline rep, here's what you can expect from this mascara: - Great price! It's inexpensive and you can pick it up at any local drug store - Zero clumping (I use on both upper & lower lashes) - The formula is very light, not heavy which means it never weighs down my lashes, and they always stay curled - Totally waterproof - Absolutely no smudging/budging LOVE!
Liquid -Unlisted Brand - Dinair Airbrush Makeup Foundation

I was excited to get Dinair based on a number of reviews online and after watching several videos. A few things: PROS: The foundation does seem to last a long time - as well as the blush. It's easy to use - easy to clean. The (eyebrow, eyelid) stencils are great and really make a difference in creating lines and blending different areas. The compressor is sleek and portable and really isn't noisy at all. CONS: The price is a bit steep - but as compared to other airbrush makeup companies it's not that bad. It's definitely an investment, and if you plan on using airbrush makeup frequently, then it will be worth it....I would not recommend this for leisure use as it is pricey. I did not find the "moist and dewy" to last on lips. The color on the lips stayed but not the shiny/glossy look. The foundation is VERY matte and most people prefer the little sheen/glow to their face so it looks more natural. However, if you have oily skin, adding the Moist & Dewy to your face can make it look even oilier. Maybe after applying the foundation & blush....instead of airbrushing Moist and Dewy, you could use a highlighter color (with a traditional brush)....or use MoM (Milk of Magnesia) before beginning airbrush foundation would help to soak up the excess oil. I did find that after shaking each bottle, sometimes the drops would not come out very easily. I had to squeeze really hard or re-shake it. Overall GREAT product - I will definitely be buying more Dinair makeup.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Love this product! It helped my eye shadow stay put with virtually no creasing - even airbrushed eye shadow (Dinair). I have tried several eyelid primers but this one takes the cake.
Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced - Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer
Missa135 6/2/2011 10:28:00 AM
At first I thought this product was going to be greasy, but it quickly turns to what feels like pure silk on my skin! LOVED it and I do think it gave the illusion of smaller pore size on my face. Some of my friends who were iffy about primers tried this (recommendation from me) and loved it as well. Staying power is good too - lasted thru a 9 hour work day and skin looked great still - foundation stayed on just fine =)
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!! Simply put - it's awesome! I usually wear it as a top coat to another color, instead of just by itself (although it looks great alone too).
Concealers -Smashbox - Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer

As most has said, once this product is touched, it comes off very easily. I have dark under eye circles and the coverage is just too sheer to provide adequate coverage.
There is nothing fabulous about this product...it's not bad, but it's not great. For someone with combination skin, it really played to the oily parts in a negative way. I will not be buying this again.
