Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Infallible Eyeshadow - Bronzed Taupe

Read about Infallible eye shadows from a blog. Just like people raved about how pigmented this is, I found it to be pretty well pigmented and long lasting (I don't often wear eye primer, either). I'd buy any of other infallible eye shadows. One thing is, this color comes out a bit weird and too glittery on photos. Just something I noticed on my fb pics. For photos, something matte would work better.
After reading many positive reviews, purchased Tattoo Liner in Trooper (black). This is a great eyeliner; easy to apply, great color, etc. I have oily eye lids and a lot of products smudge. This liner doesn't smudge but the edges of my eyes (close to tear duct and the other end) lose the color a couple of eyes into my day. If the day is hot or my eyes get watery, then the liner goes away quicker.
Eyeliner -MAC - Superslick Liquid Liner - On the Hunt

This was supposed to be my replacement for Liquidlast eyeliner.. which I love (MAC is discontinuing). While the felt tip is better than the little brush LiquidLast liner, here are the cons: - Amount (Only lasted me 1.5 mo... found it odd. LiquidLast lasted me at least 5-6 months consistently) - Price (costs more than Liquid Last.. $18 or something around there. Wouldn't be a problem if it lasted me a while) - Stings my eyes - Once it's dried, the texture becomes flaky... oil based eye make up remover didn't work. had to rub the flakes off of my lids.
My eyelids are oily and almost all eyeliners smudge on my skin. I've tried several products and this is the ONLY product that doesn't smudge and stay on all day. I've gotten used to the small brush tip so it doesn't bother me but others have mentioned that they can't stand the brush and rather have felt tip liners. Unfortunately, MAC stopped making this product :( If you have oily lids and want clean black lines, in my opinion, this is probably the best option without paying too much. Another big plus for Liquidlast is that one bottle lasts me at least 6 months.. I wear eyeliner 6 or 7 days every week. Have yet to find a sufficient replacement.
I've been using Studio Fix for about 3-4 years now. I use it with MAC's Select Cover-Up (medium coverage concealer). It's easy to use and lasts long enough for me. My skin used to have more acne and blemishes and Studio Fix didn't have enough coverage for me but now that my skin has improved, it's an easy go-to option for daily wear, especially with a little bit of concealer. I used Bare Essentials for a while but the coverage was far less than what I needed so went back to MAC.
Tinted Moisturizer -Smashbox - Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

I was quite hesitant to buy this product because tinted moisturizers usually make my skin look very oily. A salesperson at Sephora highly recommended it because it's oil-free and the price isn't too bad. I somehow convinced myself to try it. When I first put it on after shower, it stings a bit. The color is fine - not too yellow or orange. But the coverage is very slight (which is expected since this is not a foundation). My biggest complain is that it makes my skin look so oily. I let my skin absorb the tm and put on the rest of the make-up at least 10-15 minutes after I put this on. Also, I blot my face several times a day. I do have sensitive/combination/oily skin so it's hard to find a good product. If your skin isn't oily, I think this is not a bad option but for me, I'd rather go back to my regular moisturizer and stay matte.
