I've just been using a sample of this but I absolutely love it! I use it over my Shiseido mascara base which holds the curl and makes it last all day. For a daytime look, I dont even put on eyeliner. Just curl my lashes, put on the mascara base and this mascara and it really opens up my eyes. I haven't used it without my base so I can't tell you how it is alone. But over my base, it volumizes and lengthens my lashes more than any other mascaras I've tried. I was hoping that I'd just try some ds brands to save some money, thinking the quality might be comparable, but now I'm not so sure. I have 2 ds brand mascaras that are just crap. This retails at 19.50 but I just might have to go get more next time there is a GWP or something. Gotta have more of this!!
This mascara did nothing for me. It did not "BLAST" my lashes for nothing. It didn't volumize or lengthen. I only bought it because I had a coupon for buy one get a shadow free. Drugstore mascaras still disappoint me.
I got this in 3 colors(Cherry Glisten, Natural Beauty, Intimate Nude) when it was on sale for $5.99 each ($9.00 regular price). Packaging is cute and fun to use. Lipstick itself is moisturizing and not too matte that it does leave the lips a little stained. Cherry Glisten comes off as a light reddish color on me. Natural Beauty is just the perfect nude color for me, and Intimate Nude is more of a pinkish peach nude. I love all 3 colors!! I'll collect more when it's on sale again. No more department store lipsticks for me.
Primer/ Corrector -Skindinavia - Makeup Finishing Spray

This product actually does what it promises. It sets the makeup in place all day. I use a powder brow pencil and powder foundation, and during the summer days, the powders fade, but not with this. Just think of it as a hairspray for makeup. ahha Although my face does seem shiny after a few hours, I just apply some anti-shine powder and I'm set. it is pretty expensive, although I think the 6 oz. bottle is a greater bargain than the small 2 oz. bottle.
I bought this thinking it'd work just as well as the expensive brands. It looked wonderful at first, then I noticed black flakes all over my face throughout the day. I'll just stick to my HG mascara from Kiss Cosmetics.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorstay Lipcolor 265 Raspberry Mousse

I've been looking for a raspberry color for a few weeks now and found this just by accident. This color is totally gorgeous. And I love this formulation. I have about 3 other colors in this kind, just never noticed they had a raspberry color. Affordable compared to department store brands but quality is just as good. Lip items are something that I'd buy drugstore brands because they're all the same really. Not too drying and color lasts a really long time. I'd rather buy these than lip stains. I'd dab it on or use lip brush for lighter color. But I don't find the color too bright or ridiculous for full blown application, so given the right occasion, this would be a beautiful color!
I bought this brush based on reviews here and I'm so glad I did. I've used it to apply eyeshadow as liner and it's just SOOOO soft on my eyes! I couldn't believe it. I thought it'd be harsh and pokey but it wasn't at all. It can be used to apply a thin (not too thin) or thick line. Just absolutely love it!
This thing was weird and irritated my eyes. It made my lashes droopy after I curled it. It didn't do a darn thing for my lashes. I don't know why I bother. I'll just stick to my Shiseido The Makeup Mascara Base.
I don't know if I'm using this right, or what's wrong with this, but it always cut the hair off. My revlon tweezer works way better.

This was the crappiest cream/gel shadow i've ever tried. It applied very lumpy and unevenly. Maybe it was just that color or I got a bad one but it went back to Sephora. I hoped it would've been like Shiseido's Hydro Powder because this line had bright pretty colors...
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

This liner really doesn't budge. I've had for a few months now. I don't wear it everyday cuz it's too harsh for daytime everyday wear for me. But on nights out or special occasions, it's perfect. Even stays put on waterline for a while. My eyes water often, so it did smear from the waterline, but other than that it stayed put. Most gel liners come in screw top jar so that doesn't bug me. I'd buy again wen I run out in a few years. LOL
This is a great product. Its consistency is like a lotion. Don't know what other reviewers mean about the stinging cuz it has never stung my eyes. It made my sight a bit blurry when it seeps into my eyes but even then it never stung. Anyways... I need a dual action/waterproof remover like this cuz I wear WP mascara everyday so I don't wanna be rubbing on my eyelashes. It works well but I have some others that works just as good and is cheaper. So as much as I like this, I wont be buying again.
Eye Shadow -Make Up For Ever - Star Powder - Iridescent Red 949

EDIT: They have this color on Sephora site now! ********************************************************** Got this last year when I first started my addiction to these shadows. For some reason I was really into red and HAD to have it. And it's not available at Sephora, so I called up the MUFE store in NY to order it. I also ordered their brush roll and it came with a really strong leather oil smell?? Haven't had much use for it so it's just rolled up in the corner. LOL Me and my impulse buys. Anyways... this is a really bright, pretty red. Wore it only on Halloween. Don't see myself wearing it on a regular workday. But it's really pretty and I'd buy again if I had to, which I won't cuz I won't be using it often. So FYI, if you want to buy anything from MUFE that you don't see at Sephora, you can just call up their store in NY to order.
Love this color. It's a purplish pink that goes on smooth and easy to blend. I'd buy again if I ever run out.
I'm a bit iffy about buying this again. Although I do love this powder. It's light and has nice coverage. Doesn't look cakey like the Cover Girl I have. I really like it, it's just the price. and the powder puff that came with it kinda sucks.
