I really notice a difference in my makeup when I wear this. I have combination skin, and in the winter time I use a foundation for dry skin. I notice at the end of the day my makeup will still look freshly applied if I take the extra step and put this on before my makeup. You don't need very much of it! And for $8, I don't think you need to spend money on a high end primer!
Doesn't smuge, or wear off during the day. I can sleep in this and it will still look good in the morning! I also love that it is easy to take off. I don't like having to scrub my face or use special makeup remover to get my makeup off. Sometimes there is a slight irritation on my eyes when using this- it usually goes away after a minute or two. It doesn't cause my eyes to get red or swollen.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Lipstick in 508A Black Orchid

This color is almost the exact same as Wet N Wild's Megalast Lipcolor in Cherry Bomb, but this is NOT a matte lipstick. It is very slippery, almost greasy. I would recommend wearing a lip liner with this lipstick. And applying it with a brush or q-tip. I layer this over my Cherry Bomb lipstick to give it more of a gloss, and a more plum color. For less than a dollar, I can't really complain. It just takes some time to put this on because it is such a dark color and it is very "slippery".
I love the fact that this has a pump. The finish on this foundation is dewy, but no too dewy. I have dry/combination skin and this works wonderfully. I also can build this foundation very well- just be sure to blend! I usually use this foundation with Hard Candy's translucent primer and it works great. I prefer this to Revlon's Color Stay foundation, it doesn't feel like a mask on my face and is very comfortable to wear all day.
I got this on clearance at Walgreens for around $2.50. I bought this because I needed a new foundation for the winter. I applied it with a foundation brush and it was not going on very well. It did not blend into my skin until I went back with a wet sponge and blended it in. The finish is VERY DEWY. I have dry skin and it looked like my skin was wet- so I set it with some powder, added bronzer for contouring and I was fine. The coverage is light to medium, I wouldn't recommend building this foundation as it is a very dewy finish. You could go over this foundation with a powder and get more coverage.
