I love this product! I must say, the color selection is a little odd. I feel like all of the colors have a yellow undertone to them, but I am pink toned and I ended up with 3.0 which doesn't look too yellow on me. It was weird, because I strangely could wear all the colors under 3.0 at the time. The only other flaw I have with this makeup is the packaging. I LOVE that it has a pump, which I have had no problem with. But the top comes off WAY too easily. I discovered that I cannot travel with this foundation at all because it ends up getting everywhere in my makeup bag. Anyways, I ended up loving it despite the flaws! It really is weightless, I usually forget I even have it on! It lasts awhile too, most of the day for me (oily skin). I create a really nice finish when I use my E.L.F. flat-top powder brush for application. Also, if you have MAC Studio Fix Powder, it goes perfect with this foundation, at least on me. I usually set my foundation with the powder, and they fit very well together. Also, the price for this foundation was a bit much for me, so ask for a sample to use before buying it. Overall, I would definitely buy the foundation again!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Love this product! I've had it for a few weeks now, and I have had NO problems with it. It definitely makes my shadow stay in place all day with no creasing or oily spots on my lids. I'm so glad I chose this over Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I love this primer way better than my MAC paint pot. Definitely will stick to this primer for awhile!
This blush is fantastic! I would definitely call this product a dupe for MAC's powder blushes. It is so pigmented and a little bit goes a long way. It is very blendable if you get too much product. It looks way shinier than it is, it's the perfect amount of glow with no glitter. It is also the perfect coral shade, it's not too orange. It is beautiful, and I think any skin color could make this work. It has lasted me awhile now and I still haven't hit the pan.. definitely buying this product again!
LOVELOVELOVE this foundation! Definitely get a sample before you try it though.. if you like medium to full coverage and have oily skin, this product won't satisfy you. When I opened it to squirt some on my hand in the store, it squirted into my shopping bag and all the way across the room.. and I barely squeezed it haha I knew it was water-based but dang! So dispensing the product can be difficult, but it doesn't bother me. I put this on my arms because I have little bumps on them I've had my whole life.. so I do get some red color to my arms which I hate. But I put this on them when I'm wearing something that will show my arms and it evens out the skin tone. Sometimes I'll wear this foundation when I don't want a lot of coverage, but lately I've been putting this on then adding MAC studio tech on top.. & it looks great! The best thing about this product is how much youre getting for the price. All of the other MAC foundations are around the same price but are an ounce or less. This product will last a very long time. It also works with light reflection as well, when I bought it, the artist told me a lot of photographers and pro makeup artists use it and love how it turns out on camera. I love this foundation overall.. I wouldn't say it's your day-to-day foundation, but it's definitely something extra to keep around!
This mascara worked out very well for me! A lot of product comes on the wand, but other than that it really helped lengthen my lashes and add some volume without clumping easily. I got this at walmart for $5ish close to $6.. anywhere else will be a couple dollars more. Overall, for a drugstore mascara I had a good experience with it!
I love this product so far! The only flaws I have found is layering can be a little on the cakey side, and the product runs out fairly quickly. I love this cream consistency for my oily skin. For me, it stays on all day with about medium coverage. I you have MAC face and body foundation, but that on and then Studio Tech. Those put together are flawless! Atleast on me :) Also, if you have the E.L.F. studio powder brush (flat top), try using that to apply Studio Tech. It makes a flawless look with a little bit more coverage! I also LOVE the packaging on this product, just wish it would last me a little longer!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

This is my HG moisturizer! It controls my oily skin very well throughout the day but leaves my skin soft instead of sticky like most gels. The pump is amazing too.. I've never had any problems with the pump. And for an amazing product at 4 ounces for $25? SOLD! I'm still using mine from last Christmas and it's only halfway gone! I will never purchase any other moisturizer! If you have dry skin, shoot for the lotion form. It's VERY moisturizing, so if you have combo skin, get a sample to try cause it may be too much moisture for you. But the gel moisturizer is PERFECT for me and my oily skin!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"
leah8590 9/8/2012 2:48:00 AM
LOVE this palette!! So cheap but GREAT quality. I either use this or my Naked 2 Palette every day. When I first swatched the colors the first thing I noticed was that the shadows were SO soft.. which does fall under the eye sometimes when applying.. but if that's the only flaw for great pigmentation & $5.. I'll take it! You can't go wrong with this product!
