I tried this product 20 years ago and hated it. I thought after so many years they would have reformulated it into a great product. Saw some positive reviews here and thought maybe it had been improved. Wrong! This is just as bad as the first time I used it, and I am never going back. Flakes like crazy, smears, clumps, yuck! In the bin it goes.
Powder -Prestige - MultiFinish Wet Dry Powder Foundation

I shattered my MAC compact and I needed a replacement quickly. I found this at my local Rite Aid and it was inexpensive, so I thought if it didn't work for me, it wouldn't be a great loss. I bought it in Wheat, it was an exact match for my skin. I am very oily, and I found this product didn't oxidize into some weird color, it lasted very well, I only had to touch up around my nose and my chin. It looked really natural, didn't become cakey after touchups, and it really controlled my shine. I did use foundation and used this to set it. I am really impressed with this product and I will purchase it again. I think it is a great product and it is a great competitor for other similar products on the high end scale.
This bronzer looks great on my skin. I am a MAC NW25 and this gives me a healthy glow and I use it to contour my face as well. My skin is really oily, more so in the summer, but this product wears well over primer and foundation. This doesn't oxidize on me and it looks pretty natural when used with a nice fluffy brush. The packaging is card board and can be beat up pretty easily, but if I could find it here in the states again I would buy it again. I was told Bourjois was no longer sold in the states. What a shame, this is a great brand. Had I known, I would have grabbed a few other products as well.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

This has got to be the absolute worst mascara I have ever used! It was clumpy, wouldn't hold a curl and flaked off like mad. I bought it because it received so many great reviews, and the price was really reasonable, but I was really disappointed with it. It is just as bad as Great Lash, everybody but me seems to love it but me. Perhaps someone can share the application secrets with me. I think I will stick with my Chanel. It is expensive, but it lasts!
I am a total UD Junkie, and I am not ashamed to say it! This has got to be my all time favorite palette by UD, and I have them all. I love these shadows, and now that I am getting older, I just can't pull off the glitter like I did in the '80's, the shadows are great! I find that the pigmentation saturation is great, even without primer, these last for hours, and I am extremely oily. These shadows blend well, are buildable, and these colors are suitable for just about any complection. They can be used for all sorts of looks from work place to smoky eye. I can't wait to get a back up, I think this is one palette I will most certainly use up.
Great high lighter for all skin tones. Too bad it is discontinued. Not super shiny, just a very nice glow. I use it every where.

This removes even the toughest mascara and lipstick. Very gentle, doesn't burn my eyes. Too bad it is discontinued!
Wish this was still available, have a few spares until I can find a replacement. I use it as blush, on my lips and to accent my tan. Blendable, long lasting, and lasts great. Nice neutral color, any one could use this.
Lotions/ Creams -Urban Decay - Sweet Cream Moisture Mist

Great product! I am lazy and don't always remember to moisturise after showering. I put this in the tub and use it after my shower. Makes my skin so soft, and the fragrance is very subtle. Hope they don't discontinue this! Have a couple for back up.
Love this product, great for all skin types. Can't beleive it is dicontinued. Bought a bunch for back up. Leaves my skin so clean, not tight. Also like the idea of not having to use toner or make up remover when I use this. Great 3-n-1 product. Bought a bunch for back up until I find another product as good.
Too bad this is discontinued, love it. I use it as a scrub and a mask. The smell is really organic, and it works great for me.
Can't beleive this is discontinued, love the smell, love the exfoliating properties. Bought a bunch at TJ Maxx to have for backup.
Can't believe this is discontinued. Love the smell, the taste, the packaging, and the puff is so cute! Had to buy a few for back up.

Love all the Quickie Chronicles, they are great. Very compact, great coordinating colors, small enough for even the smallest bag. Can't wait to see what other sets they come up with!
