Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Perky [DISCONTINUED]

i love perky! its like blush for your eyes if you know what i mean. its very natural and rosey looking. i think its perfect for the everyday look and it also makes a good eyeshadow base.
wow this stuff is seriously underrated. i love this color so much! its sparkly but doesn't look tacky. it gives a nice shine and it looks semi natural on me so its good for everyday wear. the best part is the price. its half the price of stila but yet its great quality! i want to buy more colors. i just read how they are going to stop making it. that really sucks i just bought this stuff around christmas time. i want to run to sephora now and buy all that i can before its too late.
i don't need help in the lips department but i used to buy this because of the tingy feeling. it was a good feeling but i never did notice if it made my lips bigger since they were never small before. i like the glossy look but it kind of sticky...but a lot of lipglosses are. i would buy it but that tiny bottle is waay too small for the price. i don't see myself using this again unless it got it for free.
i was reading the reviews and its funny that a lot of people are saying their moms use it. my mom uses it and it smells so good on her. everytime i hug her i smell it and its comforting. its a mature scent and i tried it on once and it just didn't feel right. i think if you're looking into getting your mom a christmas present this would be a good one.
i used this a couple of months ago and its an average foundation. it didn't make me break out which is good and the coverage was good but it does not have lasting powder. i think for a drug store product its kinda overpriced. i'm still looking for a good foundation that will last so i'm not buy it again.
Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

i went to the mac counter and asked for a foundation that was too heavy like studiofix. they pointed me in the direction of this. i didn't notice it had sparkles in it until i got home and thought i would hate it but actually the sparkles really do help. it gave my skin this glowy look and it was overdone or tacky at all. my skin did really look healthier and in photographs it looked great. my skin has been reacting great to it and hasn't been breaking out as much as before. my only problem is the lasting power could be better and i wish it had more coverage. i know i asked for something light but i'm realizing i want to cover up my freckles more. i'm going to look into something with better coverage.
the one thing i love about it is the big brush. i hate it when the brushes are small and puny. it does give volume to my lashes and doesn't clump. the only problem is that it doesn't seem to last all day. right now i'm using diorshow which has better lasting power and does basically the same thing. the price hurts though! i will probably return to benefit unless i can find something better.
i bought this like two weeks i ago because i've heard so many good things about it. i do like the big brush and it some make my eyelashes look thicker and longer. doesn't help with curling though but i use a eyelash curler anyway. it doesn't run or flake and can last all day. my only problem is the price...i will probably stick to benefit.
this really does last forever! when i'm too tired to remove my makeup to sleep, i wake up the next morning and its still there. when i do the same thing with fluidline it doesn't. currently i use lancome's eye makeup remover so its not hard to take off. i'm a little shakey with liquid eyeliners but i like the brush it comes with because its hard so it makes it easier. i would use this everyday but like i said my hand is bit shakey so it takes more time for me to apply so i usually use fluidline. i kinda like that it doesn't dry super fast because if i make a mistake i can easily get a cotton swab and fix it with no problem. oh and i love the how dark it is! i will buy again but i think revlon has something similar to this for cheaper so i will check it out.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

before i used fluidline i would just use regular eye pencils. i hated how they wouldn't last all day and not stay in place. at first i thought it would be hard to use with the brush and all but its not! practice helps and using the angled brush from mac. it really does last all day! i am very happy to have found this product and i don't think the price is that bad. that little jar can last a long time and i use it almost everyday. i just wish it was a little darker. i don't have any of the other colors but i will be looking into that soon.
at first i bought benefit's brow gel and it worked pretty good but it was too small. i moved onto mac and found out that it was one dollar cheaper and waaay bigger! i really love it and use it everyday even when i'm not wearing a lot of makeup. it doesn't flake and yes it might feel hard but i don't care. i just hate that after a while its not clear anymore but it doesn't make a difference performance wise. i think it would be better if the bottle wasn't see through. will buy again.
i bought this in clear a while ago. i tried on one of the tinted ones but it was too dark so i decided to go with clear. at first i loved it. my eyebrows are on the longer side (i should really look into trimming them) and it helped to hold them into place. my problem with it though is that its too small! i used it up so fast and i price is kinda ehh. i now use mac's version which is like a dollar cheaper and bigger. it works just as well or even better.
the skin on my cheeks is on the drier side so i try to avoid powder blush. i really love this creme blush!! not greasy at all and i love the color. like everyone said the color may look bright but when its on you it will look more natural. my only problem is that it doesn't seem to last all day. but it doesn't make me break out and makes my skin look more healthy so i love it.
Misc Beauty Tools -BeneFit Cosmetics - eye/lip pencil sharpener

i bought the dual sharpener for my high brow pencil. its simple and does its job. i never experience any of my pencils breaking from it like when i use my mom's cheap sharpners. the other side is good for any regular size eyeliners. if for some reason i was to lose it i would buy it again! oh and i didn't know there was a little stick thing to clean it out! i will have to check that out the next time i use it.
