Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

I am on my second tube of this. It makes everything stay on until you take it off, or you aproach 48 hours of wear (I know I know). If you put it on too thick it can crease. I like to put some on my pointer finger rub and then apply to my eyes. One tube can last me about 6-7months if not longer. I have crazy oily eyelids and primer insurance/UDPD/Lorac didn't work at all for me.
Primer/ Corrector -Hourglass - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

This stuff does what it says! It stays helps your makeup stay all day and helps control oil. I have pretty dry skin exept in my t-zone and eyelids and this works all over. The only down side is when it starts to go bad it broke me out...bad. I'll buy the smaller size for the summer since that is when I need the most help keeping my face on, espically when I work with a summer camp (I live in the hot south).

I switched from Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer to this and I love it! I am in the color Alaska and it covers so well for a tinted moisterizer. Durning the summer I would put it over Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer and it stayed on all day, even after a kickball game in 100 degree heat. I can't say enough good things about this product love love love!

I like the way this covers like a light foundation, but doesn't feel like one. It leaves my skinlooking dewy and fresh. I also use the hydrating primer before this and set with a pressed powder. It seems to last most of the day, but if I am going out after wearing all day a little pressed powder brings it back to life. Update: After using it for about 4 months it developed a smell that I just couldn't handle. I actually had to throw the rest of the product away. I was told it's becuase of one of the ingrediants in the product. I switched to the NARS tinted moisterizer.
Eyeliner -Sephora - Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof

I have these in marine and the champaigne color and love them. They stay where I put them, even on my lower lash line. I use the champaigne one on my water line and it just makes my eyes pop. I plan on buying more colors. I also like that I can use it as a shadow on my quick lazy makeup days.
I wish they had a maybe for would you buy this product again. I love how it says on, it reminds me of this mascara I used to buy called fiberwig which Sephora doesn't carry anymore (they carry a different version then the one I bought). This stuff stays until you take it off, which I love. I also feel that's all it does for my lashes, and that makes me sad.
While this eyeliner is easy to apply it doesn't stay on my oily lids or lower lash line. One of the worst "waterproof" eyeliners I have ever used. I gave it a 2 because it doesn't tug while applying.
Mascara -Chanel - Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel (Waterproof Version)

I LOVED this mascara. Due to finally moving out on my own I had to find a less expensive version. This gave me natural looking lashes with some volume. I love that the brush catches each of my lashes and doesn't clump.
I have been looking for a drug store replacement to my expensive mascaras I've been using. I remembered I had loved this one in high school so I gave it a shot. It does just what it says and what I need it to. It gave me natural looking volume with one coat and a second added just enough to make me happy. I already have long lashes so I can't say if I noticed any length. I do like that it leaves my lashes soft and not looking like they might snap in half. I just might have to say this my HG drug store mascara.
