Eyeliner -Sephora - Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner

The packaging is mostly great. I will only buy retractable eyeliners. Don't expect the little cap covering the smudge tool to be around for long. It is definitely waterproof as claimed, but that's about the only good thing about the product. It takes several swipes to get a dark line, and it is almost painful to use on your eyelid because it pulls. And after all of the pulling, it is a patchy line at best. It is easier to use on your lower lash line, but you have to be careful to not put it on your waterline as it contains some glitter.
Primer/ Corrector -Smashbox - Photo Finish Luminizing Primer

I will buy a different Smashbox primer next time, just not this particular one. It definitely helped with foundation application. It is not good for cool skin tones though - but if you are a medium warm, it would probably be great for you. On my NC15 skin, it just looked orange unless I used a very, very thin layer. I much prefer the green color correcting one.
It works well enough for my skin tone, and pulls more pink on me. But it's not worth the high price and doesn't live up to the hype. I'll keep using it but once it's gone I'm not replacing it.
Pressed Powders -Revlon - ColorStay Pressed Powder

I don't like the tiny mirror on the packaging. They should have left out the window to see the product and just put a full mirror in. Also I have to reapply it at least 6 times a day at work because my face gets so shiny. I have fairly oily skin and this just does not last at all. I have used other pressed powders before this with the same foundation I used with the Revlon and only had to reapply once at work. The only good thing I will say about it is the applicator is in a compartment underneath the powder. I like this because with other powders where the applicator just sits on top of the powder, I have a tendency to drop the applicator when opening it.
