I love this brush! I use it for applying liquid foundation.It blends really well and offers controlled coverage. It hasn't really shed on me. I've tried several brushes for applying liquid fdtns, and I've finally found my HG :)
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)
breebree89 12/19/2012 4:23:00 PM
This cleanser does a good job at removing makeup, but it dries my skin out. On the plus side, it didn't make me break out. I don't love the price either, so I won't be purchasing this again.
I actually prefer this cleanser over Philosophy's Purity Made Simple, and for a fraction of the price! :D This does a good job at removing my makeup, and it doesn't sting my eyes. It leaves my skin feeling clean and not dry or tight. It hasn't made me break out, which is great. There isn't any strong scent either, just smells clean. For reference, I have combo/acne-prone skin.
This brush is really good for liquid foundation, I haven't tried it with mmu but I'm sure it does a great job for that as well. It really helps buff in the fdtn. The only thing I dislike is how thick the handle is but I can deal.
This is my HG fdtn. I've been using it for a few years, not sure which bottle # I'm up to currently lol. I'm in the buff shade in the combo/oily formula. It stays on all day, it doesn't cake (as long as you blend well and don't layer too much on), it does have a scent, but it goes away after applying. Be sure to blend quickly! It doesn't fade or transfer, which is a huge plus. It's medium to buildable coverage, the price is good also. It does not break me out also, since I am acne-prone. Obviously it would be better if it had a pump, but overall I am definitely satisfied with this product!
I love this eyeshadow brush. I have 3 of these. Yes it's incredibly cheap, but it does a great job of packing on/applying eyeshadows! I don't think the bristles are scratchy at all.
It didn't really volumize my lashes, not like the regular lashblast. It did lengthen my lashes a bit. I will keep using it until it dries out. Overall I will stick to the regular lashblast volume.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I love this product, it makes my pores less noticible. It lasts for a good amount of time. You only need a little bit, I put on a regular primer and then add this where I need it, which is for my pores. I highly recommend this!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Extra Volume Collagen Mascara (waterproof)

The only positive thing about this mascara is that it actually is waterproof, it didn't smudge or flake on me. But it does not volumize my lashes at all! Very dissappointed.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation - Intensive formula [DISCONTINUED]

My all time favorite mmu!! I wear Light Neutral in the buff category. IMO, it's much better than bare minerals, which is what I used to use before discovering EM. I love the intensive formula for when I have acne marks that haven't quite faded, for extra coverage. It's not so shimmery but helps brighten up your complexion. It doesn't make me oily or dry and it lasts all day, through any season. The only con I could think of is that I am not a huge fan of the packaging as it takes up space but I can deal with that. Definitely recommend this if you're in the market for mmu :)
Love this color. It's a great pink with a hint of peach in it. I like wearing it to give my lips a pop of color when the rest of my m/u is more subtle. The only con is that it's a bit drying, but that's nothing a moisturizing primer/chapstick can't solve. Overall this is a great lipstick so I definitely recommend it :)
Primer/ Corrector -Everyday Minerals - Pick Me Up Pink [DISCONTINUED]

I've had a sample size of this for awhile and I finally got around to trying it out. I'm glad I did!! My regular concealer wasn't doing enough for me, and my eyes looked so tired. So I got some on my flat concealer brush, and lightly tapped and blended it under my eyes and my eyes instantly looked more awake! Don't be put off by the color, because it doesn't show the pink sheen when applied, at least not for me. So I definitely recommend this!
I like this blush. It is close to NARS Orgasm, with less sparkle but it takes a few layers if you want it to show up. Although it is nice just for a sheer look when you don't want to look too overdone. The price is great, the packaging is cute. Do remember that at $3, you get what you pay for. I would really recommend this for the lighter/medium shades, I don't think it is suitable for deeper skintones.
Wow, I love Nylon! Like everyone said, it's a great highlighter! I was using vanilla e/s as a highlight for more neutral/day looks, so I use Nylon when I'm going out or will be photographed. Definitely recommend this e/s!!
Eyeliner -Make Up For Ever - Aqua Creamliner Matte Purple 5
breebree89 9/18/2010 12:36:00 AM
I really had high hopes for this, the color is such a gorgeous purple, the one I was looking for, not too violent or dark. Unfortunately the color applies steaky and it dries out so fast!! The texture isn't the greatest either. I will not be repurchasing and would not recommend.
