I am in love with these false lashes. I bought them off someone off craigslist for $10/box and in the box you get 10 pairs of lashes. $10 seems to be the max. price anyone should pay for these lashes. In comparison to other lashes they are cheap and good quality. You can get some that look natural to more dramatic. Easy to apply. Thin strip so it looks more natural. Packaging isn't that great, but who cares. At a price of $1.00/pair or less who can complain. What else can I say other than I love them.
I love this blush! I am east indian so a blush is usually a daily thing I wear but I needed something that I could wear during the day. I was worried that it wouldn't show up on my face, but it does. I get just enough colour. I do not use the brush that came with the package. I like the texture, and I like how it comes onto my face.
I like the blush on my face and use it to add colour to my forehead, but on my skin tone it comes out really strong and with harsh lines. Extra time needs to be spent blending it out. Overall I like it, but will likely not buy it again
I can say that I LOVE shatter. I love the look it gives. It dries quickly. I do recommend wearint a top coat over it. I am a little bit concerned as it does dry quickly and I am noticing build up on the brush, but no issue so far.
I have recently started experimenting with make-up so I thought that a palette would be the way to go. I got the 2010 wish for the perfect pallete. If I had a choice, I would have just got the eyeshadows and the brow powders. I will never use the lip colours as there is no point because I cannot take such a large clunky thing along with me for reapplication. The gel liners quickly dried out. For the price, I think that the quality of eyeshadow colours is great. The eyeshadows do not come out excessively like other cheap eyeshadows do. I probably would not buy this again and wish that I bought the stila colour wheel instead, but it was a good value and perfect for a make-up beginner that wanted to try out a bunch of different products. I would never have discovered brow powders if it weren't for this pallete
Makeup Brushes -DuWop - Double Ended Brush- The One

I bought this at BeautyMark at one of their clearance sales. I like the brush. It works perfectly for mineral veil by bare escentuals. I have not used the smaller end, but the larger end works well for me. It is soft!
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - Geisha Ink- Liquid Eyeliner

I absolutely LOVE this liquid eyeliner. It is so easy to apply, and it stays on. It is on the expensive side, but if you can afford it I say buy it. I cannot say enough about its easy application. I used to use liquid eyeliners years ago and found that I always made a mess. This works so well for me. I especially like it for doing touch ups to my eyeliner after I have applied false lashes
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
PerfectPursuit 3/25/2011 3:24:00 AM
I was looking for something that would stay put on my waterline so I tried this out. The make-up artist at MAC recommended using a liner pencil on top, but I have found that when I do that I get racoon eyes. I now use it on its own and it is the best liner for my waterline that I have used thus far. I will not give it a 5 because some of it does run a tiny but it is close. I would probably buy this again but I want to try the bobby brown gel liner.
Bought this off of a makeup artist. Saw great reviews on Sephora's website so had to give it s try. The good: Gives a nice finish on top of my foundation The bad: The packaging is BAD. I do not have the spill-proof container, so this ends up everywhere so a lot of product gets wasted. Would I buy this again? Yes, buy this time I would buy it in the spill proof container.
Got this in the wish for the perfect primers box set. The good: Easy to apply. Makes eyeshadow stay put versus without a primer. The bad: Not sure because I am not familiar with primers. Would I buy this again? No. I just want to try other primers on the market. I will buy it again if the same wish for the perfect primers set comes out again because I will save money on the photofinish.
Cousin told me about this and someone was selling it on Craigslist so I bought it. I would have had to order it in from the states as I do not know where to buy it in Vancouver. It surprised me. The good: Make-up lasts with some sort of matte looking sheen on my face (tough to explain), dries quickly The bad: Smells bad. Sprays a lot at your face. Would I buy this again? Yes. I was very surprised as my first squirt ended up with a lot of it on my face, but it all dried evenly. It will probably get expensive if I was to use it regularly as it uses a lot in a squirt so I will reserve this for only special occasions.
Powders -Smashbox - Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder
PerfectPursuit 3/25/2011 3:04:00 AM
Heard a lot about this on the Sephora website so I had to buy this when I saw it at the duty free on my way to the states. Some people use it as a foundation powder, but I have no clue how to do that. The good: Easy packaging. Easy to apply. Gives me the matte look I want The bad: Medium is too dark for my skin so I will only be able to use this in the summer when I am tanned. Comes off on my clothes. Would I buy this again? Yes. I will only use this for special occassions because I do not want this all over my clothes.
I got this product in the wish for the perfect primers kit so it is the tube instead of the pump.... which is probably better in my opinion. The good: Foundation glides on when I put it underneath. Makes my foundation last all day. The bad: Not good for acne-prone skin. I should probably buy the photo-finish light. Would I buy this again? Yes, but I may also have to try other primers on the market
The good: Gives just the right amount of "brightening" underneath my eyes and around my nose The bad: I do not like to apply this with a brush and need to dip my fingers into to the pot instead of rubbing so when I have long nails, I get extra product underneath them Would I buy this again? Yes. I have not tried anything else but it works for me
I have been buying a lot of benefit products and this one was on clearance at my local drug store so I tried it out. The good: Easy packaging. Easy to apply. The bad: Not good colurs for east indian skin. (I got the #3), slides off with smashbox primer underneath. Would I buy this again? No
