Love,love,love!!! Never wanna be without....this is my fav setting powder for foundation..Really good for dry/combo skin like mine because it NEVER looks cakey or clings to dry patches and at the same time it controls my oily t-zone.... So awesome that elf started making this cuz I had really been wanting to try the make up forever HD powder but didn't wanna pay like $30 (which I already do for my msf natural, but this keeps me from using that one so much..) Anywhoo, Go get this! It's only like $6 for a huge container and is like the softest powder I've ever tried...probly not the best for travel but I don't find it extremely messy as others have mentioned...Oh yeah, if u do notice a white cast with this, u r probly using to much or didn't buff it in enough..

I usually do not go for this type of foundation but decided to get it because I like the under eye concealer from this line and it was BOGO 1/2 off on maybelline products at my local rite aid,i thought what the heck. Examples of foundations I wear are revlon colorstay, maybelline superstay, and l'oreal magic smooth souffle. When I applied this to my face I was thrown off by the greasy feel, it felt more like a silicone primer(which i don't like)... After I had dotted it all over my face I used a stipple brush instead of my usual beauty blender because it already had such a low coverage I didn't want to sheer it out anymore. The only thing I liked about this was the color match 130 Buff Beige matched me pretty well, and I am a NW20 in mac for reference. Now for the cons...the first would be how much it enfasized my already large pores. The second and worst thing about this was that it just sat on top of the skin and got even greasier throughout the day...it also looked very make-up like even tho the coverage was light. So to sum it up this foundation sucks...I'll probly give it to my mom or the trash can.
I absolutely love this palette! I think I can actually say it's my all time favorite eyeshadow palette... It took me forever to get it, everytime I would check Sephora's website(almost every day) it would be out of stock. So when I finally saw that it was in stock a few weeks ago my hands couldn't move fast enough for me to purchase it because I was afraid by the time I did it would be sold out again, lol... So anyways I've had this for a couple weeks and have been wearing it every day since, I love neutrals, especially shimmery ones.. so this pallette is perfect for me. I have tried urban decay shadows before this and they are really good quality all except for shades like snatch that have so much chunky glitter in them that gets all over your face. That is such a pet peve of mine cuz I do my foundation before my eye makeup and it just ruins everything. The naked palette doesn't really have any shades in it that have too bad of fall out, sidecar does a little bit so use a dense eyeshadow brush(like the one it comes with) and maybe a squirt of fix plus if you dont want fall out. Bottom line, This lives up to the hype and $48 dollars fo 12 shadows, a mini primer potion and a nice eyeshadow brush is actually pretty reasonable. GET IT
