This is a definitely a staple in my makeup collection. It's a super sheer primer that goes on absolutely smoothly & helps make your eyeshadow look phenomenal. I use to have this terrible problem with creasing, fading & smudging. Ever since I started using this Urban Decay Primer Potion, I can honestly say that the problem has been eliminated. It even makes your less pigmented shadows pop.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

I LOVE this TM! It offers light coverage & last the whole entire day! It doesn't feel like you're wearing anything! However, if you desire a little more coverage, just wait for the first layer to dry & apply another one! I absolutely love the fact that it looks natural and also has SPF20. The only con about this product for me is that it's not moisturizing enough to wear alone so I have to pair it up with a day cream which I use prior to applying this product. I would most definitely be repurchasing!
This product is very light for a foundation. A little goes a long way and should definitely be applied in moderation. I only use this to cover up any redness or blemishes on my skin. Nothing is worse then looking like you have foundation all over your face. I rarely ever use foundation but always turn to this when I need to. The coverage is awesome and lasts the whole day. I finish it off the Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus.
What I like about his eyeliner is the fine point applicator and how it glides on easily. Before I apply this product, I apply a powder on my eyelids to keep it from smearing. It pretty much lasts me the whole entire day - touching up maybe only once if any. I would definitely recommend and do plan on purchasing again.
I've been using this product forever. I use to use it to line my whole lash line on my upper eyelid but the other reviewers are right. It does dry shiny! What I mainly use this liner for is defining the outer corners of my upper lash line & then I use a regular liquid liner for the middle and inner corner of my eye. The reason why I use it for the outer corner is because regular liquid liners tend to smear or fade as the day progressed but this stayed! And since I'm only using it on the outer corner you barely notice that it dries shiny. I love it and I will continue to use it.
When I first bought this product, I really did like it. But I noticed, as the day progressed my concealer faded with it - leaving me back to my dark under eye circles that I so desperately always try to minimize. What I did like about it was the light consistency and how it didn't set into the fine lines making it look very natural. I wouldn't say the coverage was the best but it did the job. However, I did find myself touching up every two hours - which is way too much for me.
I've been using this concealer for about 2 yrs now. I do love it. However, it does tend to crease a little bit throughout the day. I've tried using a lighter moisturizer under my eye and the concealer seems to set better when I do that. I have awful dark under eye circles so this helps minimize them a lot! I warm a little bit of my the concealer up on the back of my palm and I gently pat it under my eye then I apply a loose powder to finish. It works miracles.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Brow Brush (Target)

I love this brow brush! I don't think I could live without it. I use it to apply my mac charcoal brown shadow to my brows. It picks up about the right amount of color and makes the application process so smooth. It defines as well as softens. I've used other brow brushes but always keep going back to this one.
I like this eyeliner because it stays on all day and works very well at defining my eyes. I only use it on my waterline. It does smudge and run a little bit throughout the day so I simply just apply a powder under my eye immediately after I apply the liner. It helps a lot.
At first I didn't really like this mascara. But then I started using it with my Maybeline Full and Soft mascara and it worked great! This gave me extra length, while the full and soft gave me thicker looking lashes. When I just want length and definition I use this mascara alone. The trick to using it is apply one coat and let it dry for about a minute and then apply a second or third coat. I would definitely purchase again.
This is an affordable mascara that I keep going back to. It lengthens and thickens, glides on nicely and doesn't leave my lashes feeling super clumpy. It's also very easy to remove.
