Words cannot even describe how much I love the Urban Decay Naked Pallette! First of all, the quality of all of these shadows are phenomonal! They are buttery and silky and beautiful! Though the overall price of the pallette seems expensive, it truly is a steal if you were to calculate the prices of the eyeshadows individuly. The only downside to this pallette (and it probably isn't the case for many people) is the fact that there is a large amount of darker shades, and i'm more of a light eyeshadow wearer, however, I LOVE THIS and 100% recommend this to anybody who is a neutral eye lover!
Mac's retrospeck is the newist addition to my mac e/s collection! I love how unique the color is, a neutral brown-ish gold with yellow undertones. I would've never picked out the color for myself, but when the mac artist put it on my arm, and fell in love! This e/s does have pros and cons. Pros: It's a beautiful unique, wearable color. I love putting it all over the lid. Cons: Since it is a lustre, it does have some chunky glitters in it, and it isn't as smooth and buttery as the veluxe pearl finishes. The pigmentation is so-so, however, you can definetely build up the color! My overall opinion of this shadow is the color is amazing but the formulation isn't my favorite.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells

When I picked up this trio, I was a bit hesitant. Only $1.50 at my local drugstore, with cheap looking packaging. But, i've heard that the quality of the trio's were amazing so I decided to get it. I was A M A Z E D! These eyeshadows are the same quality as my urban decay shadows! Even better than some of my Mac shadows! I was so impressed, and I love the eyelid and browbone shade to death! The crease shade is gorgeous as well, but I find myself reaching for the other two a bit more. Overall, my only complaint is the packaging, it is pretty cheap. But then again, it was only $1.50 (on sale, normally $3)! This is perfect for beginners and younger girls getting into makeup! :) I recommend this to anyone who likes high quality makeup for such a great price! Definetely one of my holy grail e/s trios! :)
Sadly, I was very disappointed with this cream blush. I've heard that the NYX cream blushes were comparable to Mac ones, and significantaly less expensive, so I decided to try out boho chic, a nice everyday pink. First of all, the packaging is not the best quality, mine cracked in the first few days of owning it. The blush itself is hard to blend, sticky, slimy and doesn't have good staying power. I love NYX in general, but this rouge cream blush was such a disappointment. Perhaps girls with dry skin may find this blush to work for them, but I won't be repurchasing this.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

I picked up one of these blushes and was amazed! I'm totally in love with the "mousse-like" creamy texture. Peach Satin looks gorgeous on my fair skin and gives my face an overall dewy glowy finish without looking oily! The blush is a breeze to blend, it glides on and blends out easily. My only complaint would have to be that there is some chunky glitters in this blush, however, when applied it isn't that noticeable! Definetely recommend this blush to anyone who enjoys a glowy blush! :)
