I love this palette! So many amazing colors and so many combination options. Great for travel. I've orderd it about 6 months ago and it looks brand new. Even though I use it almost every day (I have the original 88 palette as well), you can barely see any change in the amount of product.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

First of all, let me tell you, this stuff is AMAZING!!! To be honest, when I first heard of this product, I was quite sceptical. I thought it would be like puting a concealer on my lids. After reading all of the raving reviews, I thought I have nothing to lose, so I have decided to give it a try and orderd it online. I have never been so happy to be wrong. The eyeshadow looks more vibrant and there is absolutely no creasing, event after 12 hours! I also noticed something else: Before I used this product, my mascara used to transfer on my eyelids after a few hours, so I had this gray and ugly horisontal stripes, that totaly ruined my makeup, and I had to wipe with my finger every few hours. With the Primer Potion it NEVER happens. It's like this stuff prevent my lids from sweating and secreting oil. TOTALLY AMAZING!!!
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil Free Moisture - SPF 15

Great moisturizer for oily skin! I put this stuff on my face before i apply my primer and makeup. It absorbes super fast, so I almost don't need to wait at all before I continue with my makeup routine. It makes my skin feel soft and hydrated, but without the greasy and oily feeling (After all, It is oil free). After a few houre I do get a bit shiny (But not more then when I'm not using this stuff), so it doesn't control the shine, but not making it worse as well. It suppose to be odorless, but it has a small scent of sunscreen, but it goes away after a few minutes. I've been using it for about a month and a half and it doesn't break me out, like some of the reviews here said.
Primer/ Corrector -Pupa - Smoothing Foundation Primer

This was my second primer that I've tried (The first one - L'oreal studio secrets, which I didn't really like), and it was good, but not perfect. When I put the the primer after the moisturiser, it matifies my skin, but not dramatically. It gives me a smooth looking face, but not really minimizes the look of pores and small lines. The really visible results are after I put the foundation. The foundation glides much more easily on my face and it looks more even and smooth than without the primer. It feels almost like I don't even need to put on my powder. Also, the primer suppose to make your makeup last longer, but there really isn't much difference. In fact, I might even say that my makeup lasts a bit less than when I don't use the primer. After 10 hours my foundation begins to smudge a little on my T-area and around my nose (That almost never happenes when i don't use a primer). Overall, it's a good primer, but I think I'll continue my search for the primer that works best for me.
I've heard so much good things about this product, so I've had to try it. I bought it about a year ago, and I was very disappointed. First of all, the packaging i awful. I have to spill the product in my hand, so I never get the amount i need. A product like this needs a pump! Secondly, the smell of it is a bit weird, and not in a pleasant way. It's tolerable, but it still bothers me. Finally, it didn't really do anything significant to my hair. It feels a bit softer and easier to brush, and that's about it. My hair was still frizzy, dry and lifeless. I've been using it on damp and dry hair, I tried using different amounts, but all with same results. I thought that it might take some time to see results, but even after several months there was still no change. The high price just not worth it.
I absolutely love this smell! I will definitely buy it again, and I have never bought the same fragrance twice. All of the fragrances I've tried were good, but not quite there, and this one is definitely IT! I'm not too good at describing scents, but it's a bit sweet, exotic, and has a hint of vanilla (I ADORE vanilla). And the best thing: It last almost my entire day (about 10 hours). It's a bit pricey than other fragrances, but totally worth it.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
irenaro 3/10/2011 3:09:00 AM
I really wanted to try this product based on the reviews here, so I bought it about 2-3 weeks. Well... I really wanted to love this primer, but I wasn't that impressed. This is actually my first primer, and i thought it would do wonders to my oily skin, but it didn't. The consistency is quite thick, even a bit to thick for me. I found it a little difficult to spread it evenly on my face. After I apply it, my skin does look less shiny and more smooth and even, and it also was less reddish. My skin feels soft and velvety, but still a bit oily to the touch. It feels like the primer isn't absorbed in my skin. When I put my foundation on top of it (Revlon ColorStay for Combination/Oily Skin - which i adore), it spreads more easily and evenly than without the primer. My pores look a bit smaller, but not to much, and I haven't noticed a difference in my lines (very small lines - I'm 23 years old). What really disappointed me was that my foundation actually less durable, so every time I touched my fase, it transferred to my fingers and I had small "holes" in my makeup. I don't want to think what would happen if I'll catch a cold. I tried to use it with an without moisturiser, tried applying different amounts of the product, but it didn't made a difference. Maybe it's a good product for some, but not for me (probably because I have an oily skin). I'm gonna try Smashbox Photo Finish light primer, hopefully with better results.
What a horrible experience. The worst liner ever. I bought this liner about 2 years a go, and it was a total waste of money. I bougt it in what was suppose to be black, but actually was a very pale gray-ish color. The formula was very dry. When I tries to put a second coat, it just smudged and erased the first one. The tip was very stiff and hard to handle. It was also suppose to be ColorStay, but it lasted only for about 2 hours, and then I had grey circles around my eyes.
I've recently bought this liner and i'm a bit disappointed. The formula is very liquidy and it dries very fast, so I have to constantly dip it the liquid. For one eye I had to dip it about 5 times. Also, the tip is very stiff and hard to handle and I couldn't get an even line. I prefer the regular soft bristle brushes. The good thing is that is is very durable and lasts all day without smudging.
This is the best lengthening mascara there is! It really gives me long and curvy lashes. It lasts all day and really easy to remove with a regular makeup remover. I usually apply 2 coats (when I have the time - even 3), because 1 coat doesn't give me the best reasult. For those who want thickening - this is not the mascara for you. My only problem is that is has a really big brush, so if I'm not careful, it might get some mascara on my eyelid. I think I just need some more practising. And here's a tip - One night I wanted a really dramatic look, so I've made an experiment: I've put on one coat of Diva's Lashes mascara, and then put my Lancome Hypnose Drama, and the result was incredible. REALLY long and full lashes.
This is one of the best mascaras ever! It makes my lashes look full and long, and gives them a little curve. I've read some of the bad reviews here, and I have no idea what you're talking about. I think the problem is that you don't know how to use it. My lashes look absolutely perfect. The only down side is that i bought the water proof version, so it's really hard to remove, and if I use it on a daily basis, it weakens my lashes. Iv'e noticed that after a week of intensive use, I started to lose 2-3 lashes every day.
