So I bought this at Walmart for $3, and I'm glad I did. This mascara is PERFECT for length. The results were longer looking lashes. It didn't add too much volume, unfortunately; hence the name "all-in-one" mascara, I was a bit disappointed. This mascara barely clumps. I like how the product has a "stopper", which prevents excess product being "stuck" onto the wand.
I currently own 18 of these lip glosses. I'm very happy with them. They are impressively pigmented. Pretty surprising for what they're worth. For $2, you cannot miss out on these. My favourite colours are Cafe Latte, Sorbet, Golden Red, Doll Pink and Natural. They come in an assortment of colours. The disadvantages to these are that they smell like lemon cleaning agent. I don't like putting dishwasher soap on to my lips. That's what it reminded me of when I put these on. Gross! But, the scent eventually fades, and you barely notice it. Another thing to consider is that they don't have staying power. Thus, they are not sticky. Note, if you like sticky lipglosses, these are not for you. I HATE sticky lipglosses, so I'm glad I ran into these. If I ever run out of these lipglosses, without a doubt I will buy these again. They are worth every dollar! (well, 2 dollars, LOL)
Eyeliner -Milani - Liquif'eye Metallic eye liner pencil -black

My first Milani purchase, and definately won't be my last. The price is $5.79. I got it from Cherry Culture during their Milani promotion, so received an extra 20% off. So I decided to buy 4 of these. Anyways, I'm glad I did as well. I was ready to burn my credit card on the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils. I'm happy that I didn't. These are an EXACT dupe of the infamous UD 24/7 pencils. The packaging quality is nice. Not uncomfortable to grip on. They feel like designer eye pencils. LOL =P My final thoughts on this: I LOVE it! These babies are smooth and very rarely smudge. They are safe for the waterline. I have been wearing these on my waterline since I have bought them, and haven't had any bad experiences. I just wish they had a wide array of colour assortments, because these are worth my every penny. I am definately going to buy backups.
By far, this is the HOTTEST, SEXIEST frost finished red lipstick I have ever tried on. It's a brick red with gold. I love how it suits my golden complexion. There's nothing quite hotter than this. If you love frost finished red lipstick, this is your go-to lipstick. I wouldn't recommend it if you have a cooler skin tone and if you don't like frost finished lipsticks. This suits those warmer skin tones and love to play your lips up loud. Not for the shy, but for the bold! Very SEXXXY!
So, these are the ONLY NARS product that I own. Price was cheap for me, because I bought these (3) on ebay for $20. Literally, I got 3 for the price of one, because I won a bid, so thankfully it didn't hurt my wallet =) But at Sephora, they are extremely pricely. That's the only downfall. Packaging Quality is so-so. It has a built-in mirror, which is very convenient. It's perfect when you are filling in your brows. Very handy. I wasn't really convinced with the texture of the exterior. It gets dirty very easily, and that bothered me. I like it when the packaging of my makeup looks flawless. Wasn't really too impressed with the exterior packaging quality. Overall, I LOVE the quality of this product. It's very smooth and highly pigmented. Not chalky at all. Little goes a long way. I definately prefer these over my MAC eyeshadows. I own 6 of these eyeshadows, because a dark chocolate matte brown eyeshadow is a must-reach for almost every Makeup Artist =) I would definately buy these again as well. What's not too like?
So this is my FIRST Urban Decay product I have received. I got this as a Christmas gift from the fiance, and am glad I did =) This product really did swept me off my feet <3 The price is seriously NOT BAD. I say not bad, because you get 6 eyeshadows, which are fairly big, so it wasn't too steep. Plus, you get a 24/7 eyeliner (trial size) and an UDPP, which is also an added bonus (trial size as well). Too bad it's Limited Edition though =( Packaging quality is good. It's magnetic. How much better can it get? It snaps shut, stays shut. Perfectly secure. Overall? I LOVE it! I love black. So this is true love for me. This palette is perfect for achieving that smokey eye look. They are also intensely pigmented. How many shadows are really that smooth? These glide on like silk on to your eyes. Even MAC can't beat these eyeshadows. I wouldn't recommended it for those of you who constantly wear the daytime look, or those of you who are "shy" to wear a more dramatic look. These are dramatic and not for the shy. I would buy this again. I love it!
Eye Shadow -NYX - NYX jumbo eye shadow pencil in slate
babycupcakesz 3/5/2011 12:14:00 AM
So I'm glad I decided to buy this product, because of all the rave reviews. I was curious and bought this. Firstly, the price was something to smile about. I bought six of these as a LOT on ebay. I got them in Rust, Milk, Slate, Iced Mocha and Rocky Mountain Green. Beautiful colour choices, which is key! They usually retail for $2.99 I believe? But I got them for $2.72 each x 6! So I definately saved on these, so I was satisfied with the savings for sure. The packaging quality is OKAY. If you misplace the cap, the pencil gets messy. That's what I didnt like about it. And with its creamy property, you should be cautious about it. Just a thought. Finally, my 2 cents on this product: Its very creasy. I can't depend on these pencils to grip on any of my eyeshadows. Disappointed. I have NOT tried it with a MAC paint pot yet. I will try it out, and hopefully this review will change to a perfect 5. But for now, I am not happy, and give it a mere 2. Sorry NYX =(
