Moisturizers -Clinique - Comfort On Call [DISCONTINUED]

In winter I have very dry skin. This was best moisturizer i've used. It made my dry flakes dissappear after only a few uses and didn't irritate my red skin. Very nice heavier moisturizer, a bit heavy for summer but if you have dry skin that needs tending to this is it! Didn't break me out which i've found a lot of new products do.
I was searching for a pretty dark blue/green liner to bring out my blue eyes. My eyes have a lot of green in them so green liners tend 2 look better than blue ones do on me. The texture is nice, smooth, not as soft as urban decay but waayy cheaper. The stuff stays on. It did smudge on my bottom lashes a bit but they all do. Very pretty color, may be my new goto liner! Any recs for a pretty dark green/blue liner let me know.
Tinted Moisturizer -Cover Girl - CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer in Light to Medium

This tinted moisturizer is fairly sheer. Its suppose to be I suppose. I like the light to medium, it's a bit dark for me in winter but is ok with a light powder over it. I also bought this in fair to light for winter but the color was so light it made it just look like moisturizer, no tint. I only reccomend this in the darker shades.
This mascara is a nice mascara. I bought it in black saphire for blue eyes. The mascara brush is nice, really separates. The color looks like a lighter black. Its nice for everyday but not for dramatic effect. I dont really notice the color bringing out my eyes much.
Primer/ Corrector -Clarins - Instant Light Complexion Perfector

At first I loved this primer. I was looking for an illuminator that wasnt bronze. The color choices of this primer are great. I used champagne. It did make my face smooth and a bit brighter- at first. After using the product a few days in a row I started to break out. I still have the same reaction. I can use it one day and im fine but as soon as i go 2+ days using this primer I break out. Somthing in this product doesnt react well with skin. It may be the fragrence- it's strong!
Love this moisturizer! I havent had it long yet so I'm not sure if I like it better than cliniuques dramatically different moisture yet but i'll see. So far the origins products havent made me break out. I have dry skin but many foundations and moisturizers make my skin red/break out. I havent had any trouble with the "better then naked" tinted moisturizer either. Good products.
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Face Powder

I like this pressed powder, it's gentle and doesn't cause me to break out. What I had a problem with was the color selection. I'm fair but tan in the summer. I bought creamy natural for winter but it appears darker on my cheeks. I think because its too pink for my complexion. In summer I use buff beige and its a nice color for my tan. I think they need a lighter shade that isnt translucent. The brush that comes w/ package is hard. Just buy your own kabuki brush to apply.
I have this eyeliner in uniform. A browish/taupe shade. The pencil glides great but not as soft as urban decay 24/7 liner. The pencil is a bit cheaper though so its worth it.
I bought this pencil in mildew, a mossy green, it is great. The pencil itself glides on effortlessly and it really lasts. The color really makes my blue eyes appear more green. I wear it with a greenish/gray shadow and it makes my eyes pop. I would def. buy this product again in an array of colors. I was wandering what anyone thought of the color covet?
