This is the first BB cream I have ever tried, so wasn't sure what to expect. I have been using a sample that I got from Sephora the past few days and the results are great! It smells minty, goes on smoothly, but definitely does not provide much coverage at all. I've been using it as a primer with my Revlon Colorstay foundation over it and my skin looks wonderful. It definitely "blurs" my imperfections, which I have giant pores and this does a wonderful job of concealing them. It has a matte finish and my makeup keeps for a few extra hours. Not sure if I'd purchase it, going to try some other bbs first. But I've had a great experience with this so far.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse

I just bought two of these in Coral Tattoo and Rose On and On. The Coral Tattoo is definitely my favorite of those. Not too orange or red. It does take a while to dry, and multiple layers to get a good solid pigment. They have a pretty good staying power, I went out to eat sushi for lunch and it was still there when I finished...even though some of it was left behind on my miso spoon :/ I quite like them though, all in all. They could be a bit more staining than glossy, but it'snot enough of a problem for me to knock off a star.
Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (color 001)

This is the first face primer I have ever used, so I don't have much to compare it to. It does initially leave me skin feeling very silky and smooth. I have large pores and it does a pretty good job of covering them up. It doesn't last as long as I'd like it to, however. By lunchtime I start getting greasy and gross feeling. The pump does get clogged by dried product every day, which is annoying. I'll probably try to find another primer after I'm done with this bottle.
This is amazing! ONE DOLLAR! And it works better than any other eyelid primer I've tried. I have to use my finger to apply, since the applicator is basically pointless. It goes on matte and dries quickly. Haven't had any problems with creasing since I've been using this, which has been over a year now. Also, it's only ONE DOLLAR! Even if you don't like it, you won't be out much money. Try it!
Eye Primer -NYX - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

This product got such great reviews, I was so excited to try it for myself. The consistency is thin and slippery, and it takes forever to dry on my lids...making them crease and feel greasy. I love NYX products so I am a little let down by this. I thought it might just be the tube I got, but when I received my Dark Shadows palette, I had the same experience.
This is a great pencil, I've used it as an eyeshadow base a few times with minimal creasing. I mainly used it on Halloween all over my face to give me a paler complexion, it worked amazingly well for that and stayed all night!
I bought this foundation after growing tired and frustrated with my previous one by Covergirl. It has great reviews all around, and i've been thoroughly impressed by it myself. I've been using it daily for over a year now and am never disappointed. It lasts all day and makes my skin look amazing, especially when applied with a foundation brush. The smell isn't lovely, but it really doesn't bother me much either.
