Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Packaging quality gets FIVE stars! I love how they have finally put it in a tube. I adore this stuff, I have bought it so many times. I'm a loyal fan :)
This duo has the two most gorgeous shades of green, that's why I bought it. Now, I haven't tried the shadow insurance, so I have been using it with my UDPP. Which delivers OK results, but the color of green just seems so dull at the end of the day.
I first read about this product in Cosmo. It had a pretty good review, so I thought "Why not?" I can tell by looking at most of the reviews, that there aren't too many people who care for the scent. I actually like it! It's kind of fruity. The packaging is good. Price is good. I think everybody should have a bottle sitting on their vanity! Not only for days that I don't have time to wash my hair, but also I like to use it after I blow dry to add a little bit of volume to my hair. Glad I bought it.
I just do not like China Glaze. The colors come off as dull on my actual nails, and it takes too long to dry so I never feel comfortable about adding a top coat to help out the color.. OPI is my favorite.

Wow! This only cost me just a little over $3.00. This stuff works great. The only true issue I have with it is the packaging. It's a bit bulky, and you have to be extremely careful not to make a mess when you open it. Goes on great with kabuki brush!
Liquid -Rimmel - Stay Matte + SkinPure Complex Clarifying Matte Foundation

I can't seem to remember if at one point Walmart had this in my skin tone, or if I just bought the lightest tone that they had and made it work. When I have tried to repurchase, it just seems wayy too dark for me. But! When I did have this product, it was great! I really did "stay matte" I hope I can stumble across a lighter shade soon! I will repurchase.

I used to use Rimmel's "Stay Matte" foundation, and I LOVED it. I came across this "Stay Matte" powder, and I had to purchase. This stuff is amazing. I have very pale skin, so almost all of my powders are transparent (especially drug store makeup) Rimmel, especially, does not have much of a selection in tones of foundation and powder. But once you find something that works for you, the results are awesome. Great price, and wonderful results :)
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

Totally impressed! I have purple, teal and green. These are gems to say the least. It works awesome as a base. I always use primer, then I will use some color tattoo, and then I layer on a powder shadow on top of it. Lasts all day!
I was not impressed at ALL. I bought this because I liked the packaging, and figured it would be like having color stay (my revlon fave) with a pump (plus maybe a good dewy look could be achieved). This foundation made me look so greasy, and shiney no matter how little product I used. I couldn't counteract it with pressed or loose powders, and when I put on blush, I almost looked like a clown. I love it when my face looks dewy at the end of the day, but the whole "dewy in a bottle" look was just not working for me. I will just stick with colorstay.
I have bought this product countless times now. I use it over my foundation first before I use my mineral powder, it kind of works as a primer for my powder.It is a life saver throughout the day when my makeup needs a little help. It refreshes my foundation, and keeps me matte as can be. I wish it came with more product, I end up using the whole thing up pretty quick, but it's completely inexpensive to replace.
I have bought this scent a couple of times! I love the scent. I use it almost every day!
I like this color a lot. I think it can go with any skin tone. Staying power is pretty impressive, considering the price. If put a finishing veil on top of the blush, it will stay until you wash it. I will buy again!
Liquid -Cover Girl - CG Smoothers All Day Hydrating Makeup

I bought this during the wintertime, as my skin gets extremely dry due to the weather. I have never tried any kind of tinted moisturizer before, but I did not want to have to deal with flaky skin this year. So I picked this up at the drug store. Pros- I have had no bad issues with dry skin this winter. My skin feels and looks great with or without makeup on. Very inexpensive drug store find, which is always a plus. Even though I do have to use quite a bit of product, it has lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. It matches my skin tone very well Great packaging Cons- I do have to use a lot of product to achieve the coverage that I need (Obviously, I'm a foundation junkie so I knew this coming into the world of TMs) If I don't set it in with quite a bit of powder, my face does get kinda slick throughout the day I think when winter is over, I may go back to either Colorstay, or MUFE depending on which one I buy first. Don't get me wrong , I am impressed with tinted moisturizer, but foundation will always be my first choice. HOWEVER, I will be repurchasing this exact product next winter, as it did do wonders for my skin.
I've been on a tight budget, so I pretty much bought the cheapest mascara I could find.. and I'm so glad that I did it! It has a nice brush, and it curls nicely. Will purchase this again! ]
I am so impressed with this shadow! I went with the blue color first, because I usually do wear a lot of blue eye shadow, and I figured that if it didn't work on it's own, it could be at least still used as a base. LOVE IT! I plan on buying more colors, very vibrant, long lasting, love the texture, and it's a pretty decent price! :)
