Eye Shadow -Jesse's Girl - Baked Eyeshadow Palette

I found this at my local drugstore and couldn't pass it up! I have heard good things about the baked eyeshadows from this brand, so a palette with 9 different shadows definitely caught my eye! These are best used wet. They show up very well and last with primer.. Haven't tried it any other way! Worth picking up if you want a selection of baked shadows to play with.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)

So I am pretty oily, especially in the heat. I have been using this powder for over a month now and I must say it may be a HG for me. It does not break me out, and keeps my oil under control for far longer than any ds powder I have ever used. It has a scent that some may not like, but personally I love. The packaging isn't great, as most have said. But for what it does and what it costs, I can live with it.
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - Mineral Eyeshadows All Colors

I went to the Dollar Tree a few days ago, and picked up 2 of these - Beige & Gold. Love them! They are pigmented, go on well over primer/base (haven't tried without), and stay on! They are shimmery, but no glitter. You get a lot of shadow with these as well. I'm thinking the Beige may multi-task as a highlighter. I used them as an all over color wash with colored winged liner (purple).
I love this eyeliner! The brush actually isn't half bad! I have 5 of these, including the black. I use the colored ones on my lower lash line and they last all day!
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow in Ammunition

I have had more than a few of these palettes and I love them! This one is a gray/lilac/silver theme. The middle shade is a beautiful silvery lilac (my picture may not do it justice!). The shadows are shimmery/sparkly without any huge chunks of glitter. They also last forever over a primer! This particular palette is great for silvery/gray smokey looks.
I picked this up for $1 to use as a base for my darker shadows. It is a double sided eyeliner/eyeshadow combo stick. I got the black/gray stick called Smokey. The product is creamy, buildable, easy to blend and does not crease over primer (under shadow). I have not tried it without a primer though. I wasn't sure what to expect with this, but it's great!
This is my third Prestige shadow, and I have yet to be displeased. Great pigmentation, very blendable. I always use a primer, so I cannot speak for wearing this without one. But with a primer, I have no trouble with staying power. I got this at Ulta. I really love purple shadows, and this is a great addition to my collection. This is a greyish dark purple. Definitely not a "plum". As mentioned, it is a matte shadow.
I got this just to try since I had seen some good reviews. Amazing! I was getting a blind pimple on my chin. I washed my makeup off before bed, put this on, and when I woke up, the pimple was almost gone!! Love it. I put this on a clean finger and then apply to face. The roller ball doesn't seem to be a good idea for a product like this. I don't want bacteria from a pimple getting inside the product.
I found these maybe a year ago, and I still use them - a lot! Applying them dry gives a more sheer color, but if you want intense, use this wet!! It is wonderful! The darker shades can be used as liners too when used wet. The color payoff is just amazing for such a cheap product!

I found this at my local drugstore for $1.99 and couldn't pass it up. There are 5 different colors in each mini palette. The palettes do not have names. I got the one with 2 shades of purple, a blue, a green and a white. If you don't use a primer and a base with these, don't bother putting them on. I wasn't expecting much for the price, but with a little extra effort, these are nice! Very shimmery. The particles of eyeshadow are kind of big.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancer- Sterling Blue

I love silvery blues. This one is perfect! It isn't too dark, or too light. I use this on my lids, and put a gray and/or black in my crease.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Trio - Cafe au Lait #105
starlesssky386 2/8/2011 3:07:00 AM
This isn't a very dark trio, but I love it for that reason. The brown colors are very versatile. I use the lighter two a lot for highlighting the brow bone with any look.
I got this for Christmas last year. Sooo excited when I got it! Most of the shadows are great. A few of them are chalky, and some of the shades are so similar they are basically the same thing. But that is maybe 4 of them? Love this.
I really like this.. My only complaint is how hard it is to remove. EDIT: This smudges like crazy on me! Changed my rating significantly.

I have this in Peach. It is way too oily/greasy for me.
