I got curious when I saw so many great reviews on these & decided to buy one to compare to my NYX jumbo eye pencils. I got Brown Deluxe which is a deep, metallic bronze-y brown color, it cost me around 8 dollars. I love Milani's eyeshadow eyez! This pencil sets and it really stays! It didn't crease at all and the staying power is fantastic! I usually use it as a base but it doesn't even have to be set by an eye shadow- it can be worn on its own. I like it better than NYX's jep to be honest. I would definitely repurchase and try other available colors!
I wanted to find a light nude lip color I could wear when I wore more color on my eyes and for me this isn't quite what I was looking for. It's a bit too dark and brown for my fair skintone. But regardless it's a nice color and I like the formula of WnW's matte lipstick line. Apply some chapstick first and you have a non drying, pretty long wearing lipstick.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Matte Lipstick in 901B Think Pink

This is my most used lipstick! Think Pink is a light, nude pink that looks great paired with smokey eyes. I love the formula, I don't find it drying but I always put on some chapstick first. I also like the matte finish though sometimes I add lipgloss to give the color more shine. The packaging is sturdy and does the job. Nothing negative I can really say!
Eye Shadow -NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil - Pots and Pans

After loving the jumbo eye penicil in milk I decided to try some other colors. Pots & Pans is a light, silver metallic color. I like this but it's more sheer than milk or black bean. Still it works well as a base, it applies and blends out evenly and helps make eyeshadow pop a little more.

Prefect matte highlight color! This is a soft creme color that is soft and not chalky. It's also affordable. No complaints here! I'd definitely buy again.

I've had this for a while... I keep it in my school backpack for touch ups. I picked this randomly at Target and I have it in Ultra black. It works fine, no tugging. But like all pencil liners it does smear and isn't the longest lasting. I like gel liner & liquid liner best, though its always useful to have a pencil liner around. I wouldn't buy again because there are other pencil liners I want to try.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Megashield Lip Color SPF 15
TRACYwashere 2/10/2012 6:01:00 PM
I bought two of these, one for me & one for my mom. I got the color Peach Keen & my mom picked out Bare-ly Legal. The formula is nice, very lightweight and feels moisturizing. Very pigmented too. So no complaints there! The packaging is cheap but okay. It works. The only thing I didn't like was the color I picked out! Peachy Keen ended up looking very frosty and pulling orange on me! It looked terrible! So I won't rate down because I picked out an unflattering shade for myself. I gave it to my sister & it looked so much better on her! Though I have to say I do not like frost finishes! I'm hoping there are other finishes besides frost..
Palettes -Unlisted Brand - Profusion- Perfect Match
TRACYwashere 12/18/2011 5:39:00 PM
I went to Ulta and this palette was in the Christmas makeup section! I have a couple small palettes from Profusion and really wanted the big 120 palette. But this year I can't find it anywhere! I saw this and initially passed it up, but I saw a tester so I swatched a couple colors. There were a few colors I don't have & I wanted to try. There are 15 pans and each one has 3 colors per pan. Some colors are repeated but I don't mind. These are smooth and have a pretty sheen to them. They are not glittery & not matte. They are kind of shiny. Keep in mind that applying these wet will give you the best color payoff! I got it for around $6 dollars and some change (It was 25% off of 7.99). So price wise it was good! Also the packaging is decent, it's thick plastic. Feels a lot more durable then Wet'n'wild's packaging. Pros: Variety of colors for a low price. Pretty sheen to all the colors Sturdy packaging. Cons: I use 3 colors but on my eye can look like 1 color! Blend lightly to try to avoid this. Weak pigment on some colors, usually the brights! (Use primer, then dampen your brush for best color payoff).
I saw this & loved the the dark blue color in this palette. All the shades looked nice so I bought it during a bogo 1/2off sale. I also got the Baked not Fried palette(which is better than this). My problem with this palette is the pigmentation and how hard it is to use these shadows. You have to apply primer and use these shadows wet to get any color. I did this but I only got decent color from the black... The two top light colors are basically sheer glitter. The middle two marble colors are also sheer, the last two colors aren't great. The dark blue really disappointed me. I tried to build up the colors, especially the dark blue. I applied these wet, attempting to get the most color payoff, and when I tried to build up the color I felt like I took off the color the more I tried to apply it! My eye shadow looked so patchy, sheer and bad I just took it off. Also, the packaging is pretty bad! The lid is sometimes hard to take off and comes completely off. I don't like that too much. I love WnW, so I was sad I didn't like this... :/
I don't love this like I expected to. i do like it though. When I first got this I swatched some colors on my hand and got nearly no pigmentation! I tried on my eye, nada! To get the colors true to pan I have to apply primer & apply the shadows wet. Then it's better. The colors are metallic-y and really pretty, but I feel like these don't last as long on me as WnW powder shadows... Still this is the better of the two I bought!! EDIT: I used the bronze shimmer pencil as a base. I applied it all over my lid and blended it out with my finger. Then I applied these eve shadows with a damp brush. & Wow! The base made a huge difference!! The colors show up a lot more pigmented & glittery.
I really like this! On the left side theres a pure white, seafome green, sky blue, and a medium purple color. On the right side is a light creme color, a peach color, a deep brown, and a black. All are matte though some seem to have a sheen or tiny specks of glitter, It all shows up matte on the eye. This palette is amazing. Every color is pigmented and this is only five dollars?! A steal! I was worried some colors would not be up to par on quality, but I like every color. I use this over a primer and the colors are bright & bold, or sometimes I use a base (such as NYX's JEP in Milk) can help make the colors stand out. Also, there are some dupes to the 6 pan palettes but those are being discontinued in 2012 sometime (according to nouveacheap n/a) so this is still a good deal. I also noticed the purple and blue are dupes for the LE duos they released a couple years ago! Overall I like this palette & am glad I was able to find it.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Shimmer Pencil

I have three of these that came with holiday kits. I have the black one, the silver one, and the copper one. I like to put them all over my lid and blend with my finger to make them bases for eyeshadow. I find these work really well for that!
This is nota good eyeliner. It is so sheer! I have to layer it, & layer it to finally get the color I want. It does make a decent eye shadow base though! Not sure if I would buy again...
This is a really great silvery taupe eye shadow. The texture is soft and it's very pigmented. Also it's a lot of product for a low price! The only con is it has started to crumble! But will not take off any lippies because it's still fine to use.
I bought one of these at Christmas and I am so impressed! I find like nearly all nail polish chips on me within a couple days. Nothing lasts. But this does! I have a little tip wear but no chipping! :) Love it!
