Palettes -Urban Decay - Book of Shadows - Alice in Wonderland [DISCONTINUED]

Even though I already had about half the colors in this palette, I had to get it. I am a huge fan of Alice, Tim Burton, and Urban Decay. The pop-up art work is beautiful, as is the rest of the packaging, and the drawer with the eye shadows slides out smoothly (which I know was a complaint in the past). The quality of all the shadows in this palette are wonderful. Like all of Urban Decay's shadows, they are highly pigmented and long lasting. Along with the shadows, two liners (a black and a torquise) and a small Primer Potion are also included. I know they are sold out on Urban Decay but when they hit stores I highly recommend you try to get your hands on one!
This is my favorite white pencil that I own. It's cheap, very pigmented, extremely creamy, blendable, and works great as a base. The only con is that it can crease, but I use it over a primer when I want to make bright colors pop more and then I don't have a problem with creasing.
This is the first creme blush from NYX that I've ever tried, and I really liked it. The price was great, it's long lasting, easily blendable, and a beautiful color as well.
I absolutely love this color. It's such a beautiful light, light pink color. I wear it almost every day, looks great especially with darker, smoky eye looks.
Runway Fave is definitely one of my favorite glosses right now. Perfect for the nude mouth, and great if you have pigmented lips that you want to tone down. Definitely will be ordering a few back-ups of this!
Shell is such a great multi-purpose product. It can be used as an eyeshadow base or as a highlight for pretty much anywhere (cheeks, browbone, nose, etc.) The color is very light and shimmery and gives off a beautiful glow.
Some days this mascara makes my lashes look amazing, other days it clumps them together, and other days it just doesn't do anything for them at all. Definitely on the fence about this product. Another con is that it is very flaky.

I pretty much agree with everyone else; not the most moisturizing lotion out their, but the scent is amazing!
Concealers -Smashbox - Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer

I would not say this product has "full" coverage more like average. Did a decent job covering the redness I have around my nose and cheeks. Wish it was creamier though; definitely have to use a good moisturizer or it will look cakey and dry out my face.
Cleansers -Almay - Gently Clean Non-Oily Face Makeup Remover Pads

Great product. Oil-free and fragrance-free, they don't irritate my face at all. Do their job of removing makeup well and at a good price.
Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind foundation

I don't really like this foundation much. The coverage is decent but it makes my skin look and feel extremely oily all day, even when using a primer and setting with powder. Horrible packaging as well (no pump, and difficult to get product out.) However, if I use sparingly I can make it work decently.
I like and dislike this product. I like the color and the coconut scent; it also does a good job of giving me wavy, beach hair when applied to my hair damp. I dislike the top of the packaging and how sticky my hands get after I use it.
One of my favorite bronzers. It's pricey but the color is beautiful. I find it slightly shimmery but not too much. I have the duo with Orgasm and I find myself using them very frequently because it's so convenient to have the one compact with my bronzer and blush in it.
The packaging itself is cute (it's gold with a little starfish on top), however, the push-up applicator just falls right down after you push it up so you have to hold it up with one hand and apply with the other. The color itself looked beautiful on my skin, but smeared throughout the day and by the end of the day just looked a mess.
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Moist Wear Chiffon

For being a dollar, this is not a bad product. Is it the best lipstick out there? No, but it's only a dollar so obviously it's not going to be the best quality. I don't like wearing this applied to bare lips, however, if I use it on top of my Laura Gellar Lip Spackle the color looks a lot better and the Lip Spackle also allows for longer staying power.
