Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"

Amazing pigmentation, generous colour selection, full size shadows..... all for less than $5. You really can't go wrong. I only really use 4 colours in this palette, but that's mainly because I'm not a huge fan of green on my lids. The palette is worth a try, as it can yield many different looks!
This ELF warm bronzer is perfect for creating a natural, but sun kissed look. I'm fairly pale, and with the 4 colours swirled together, I can warm up my skin to look more.....alive (yikes lol) without looking orange! It's also nice because the packaging is sturdy and is very NARS-esque. Overall a fantastic product in general, but especially wonderful for it's low price. FYI - I got it in Winners, not on the ELF website, for around $5.
For a concealer that rings up at less than $2, I really can't complain. Although I'm not a huge fan of concealers in stick form, this does the job. It provides medium-high coverage and is very buildable. I use it everyday to cover blemishes before applying my foundation. I use a liquid concealer for my dark eye circles, as I feel this concealer is better suited towards covering redness and balancing out your skin tone before foundation. I will continue to repurchase this product!

I have the SPAresource powder brush and I really really really hate it. Not only does it shed so easily, but it quickly loses it's softness. The ones in Walmart on display are so soft to the touch, but after one use it becomes significantly less soft and almost too rough to use on your face. Additionally, it's rather bulky and awkwardly sized. It's also annoying to clean and I've just had an awful experience with this brush. I can honestly say that my $1 Forever21 brush functions better than this powder brush!! There are so many better alternatives within the $10 ish range, don't waste your time with this brush. FYI - I bought it for using pressed powder and bronzer.
