Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I have used this product over a few months now. It does make my eyeshadow crease in summer time after 3-4 hours. I have oily eyelids. And the staying power of my eyeshadow only last 3 to 5 hours in summer. In winter, my eyeshadow will last about 6-8 hours without creasing. No I will not re-purchase.
Moisturizers -Murad - hydro dynamic ultimate moisturizer

Lisa Eldridge used this on herself for a makeup tutorial. So I gave it a try. The packaging is plain and simple but good quality. It is catered for dry skin. It feels better than the average moisturiser. There is no fragrance. It works for my dry skin in winter and summer. For dehydrated skin: use a good serum under this cream. I use this product as my day and night cream. It does feel luxurious. And yes this product does give me a very slight glowing sheen (which makes my skin look healthier).
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

I have purchased this in the US. So it was relatively priced. The cream is a thick creamy texture and it was still the same texture in winter. It is a good eye moisturiser. It is not a wrinkle cream just a moisturiser for dry skin. I have used this in winter and summer time and I dont have any complains about it.
I love the color on my eyelid. It's a good everyday neutral look. Unfortunately this eye product does not stay put and will crease on oily eyelids. I had to wear eye primer for staying power. It's very misleading to claim this product is a long-wear eyeshadow. Yes I'm a little disappointed by the claim and wished it did have staying power without a primer.
This cream blush is moisturising and pigmented! Wow! I have been trying so many high end brand cream blushes and my cheeks feel so dry after using it (like cheek stains). I am impressed. This does not dry out my cheeks. The colour looks good on warm skin tones too. Its my current fav. And this will last me for ages.
Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

I have tried urban decay primer and Nars primer. Both hold up to its claim. On my eyelid, Nars felt better and I didnt feel like there is a substance on my eyelid. Whereas Urban decay's primer I can feel a substance on my eyelid. I wish both products told me on the packaging to wait for the primer to dry completely on the eyelid before applying eyeshadows or creamsr.I learnt by trial and error. If the primer is not dry before adding eyeshadow then it will crease in a few hours.
On colder days, BB's cream eyeshadows are fantastic as a base. It did not crease on cold days. I'm a little disappointed during the warmer days. It was not "LONG WEAR", it creased by the 5th hour. In fact I had to use a primer under this product to prevent creasing. I like the product but not enjoying this product falling apart on warmer days. It gets quite hot in summer, so not the best cream eyeshadow out there. Really needs to reformulated for hotter climates.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Ballet Pink

Great as a base or as subtle lid colour. In winter time this cream eyeshadow does last a decent 6+ hours. However, it creased by the 5th hour on a warm day. And in hotter/warmer days a primer is needed to prevent creasing.
I am disappointed by the quality of this brush. In general, this brush is not good quality. Hairs shed off the brush and I end up having to pick off the shedded hair from my face as I'm powdering. Not the best brush compared with others in the market.
Concealers -Giorgio Armani - Skin Retouch concealer

This concealer is for covering redness rather than an eye concealer. It does cover redness and it has a medium coverage. There is a silicony texture when applied with fingers. It blurs my blemishes and makes it less obvious. It doesnt provide complete coverage but I dont mind for daywear. I have been using this concealer for more than a year and I've just hit pan. I really love the quality of the casing, its very very good. It has a every so slight fragrance. A luxury feel item.
I always repurchase this mascara. Its inexpensive. Its fantastic for a daytime look. It lengthens my lashes just enough and it is not heavy. This formula doesnt clump for me and its a quick on the go day application. It can smudge onto the lower lash line, so I do need to check it after 6 hours of wear.
This has been a surprise find. This cream does nourish my dry skin. Its the only cream I use on during the colder seasons. And this bottle will definitely last me through one season.
I have used this product for going out on evenings and yes it stayed put all night. It is a warm pink which suits my skin tone beautifully. When I swirled my brush into the pan, I was surprised at the amount of fall out from the pan. So expect fall out from the pan. It is pigmented so best to try on the back of hand first. They really need to update their packaging. Its a bit too ordinary plastic feel.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pink Raspberry Pot Rouge ] [DISCONTINUED]

This cream blush gives a nice pinkish glow on my bare skin. Its easy to blend with fingers. It felt quite creamy on the back of my hands. But when applied on my cheeks, it wasnt at all moisturising. I can definitely say this blush is easier to blend than my tinted watery blush. I have tried this blush on my lips and this goes on matt.
Well, all this hype over a serum! Has it changed my complexion? Yes. Its more brighter. Is this product drying? Yes and I do believe its giving me blemishes too. So no not as good as ppl say it is.
