Oh, studio powder brush how do I love thee. Let me count the ways. 1: You work so flawlessly with my liquid foundation, 2: You make powder application easy and dare I say darn near perfect,3: You are so cheap but so very soft. All joking aside this is my go to brush for applying anything to my face, plus it is super easy to clean. So far I have three and I plan on buying more once another sale pops up. Only downsides is that 1: when applying liquid foundation or trying to stipple with this brush you use a lot more product cause the brush will soak it up. 2: Over time it starts getting loose from the handle which can be a real bother.
This is my go to product when I want to do a colorful eyeshadow look. It is a very matte white cream shadow that is very creamy in texture and also easy to blend. A little of this goes a long way, so I would advise only using like a dot or two for your whole eye. What I really like about this is that it makes colors pop, especially colors that normally wouldn't appear on my lid otherwise(i.e. yellow, since I have heavy yellow undertones to my skin). What I don't like is that this stuff can and will crease, but I can usually combat that by putting primer on first then using the pencil. This is a great product and the price for this is just right.
Eye Shadow -Coastal Scents - 88 colors warm palette

This was my first palette from Coastal Scents and i have to say that I absolutely adore this palette. The shadows are very pigmented and I have found that a lot of them have a very silky texture that makes it very easy to blend. The looks you can do with this palette is practically never ending. The only truly negative things i have to say is that the applicators they put are useless. They were tossed in the trash not long after the palette was opened. Also, some of these shadows are very delicate. I bumped the palette against a wall and now one of the shadows is broken and slowly crumpling :(
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Lipstick in 508A Black Orchid

When i saw this in the store, I was a little apprehensive. It looks very, very dark it almost borders on being just a straight dark brown, but when applied it is a very lovely deep wine color. I had no trouble applying it as the texture was very smooth and creamy. Love this lipstick and the fact that it is only 99 cents makes me love it even more.
