Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

I was incredibly disappointed with this product. After reading so many great reviews and hearing so much hype over it I caved and bought it about 2 months ago (therefore I've had a decent amount of time to test it). UDPP has been my go-to primer for donkeys years and has never done me wrong however TFSI just couldn't take the heat when it comes to my oily eyelids. After a measly 3 hours my smokey eye had been reduced to a single greasy brown line in my crease and my eyelids looked like I had painted a thin lair of oil onto them. Not a good look. I never have experienced this with UDPP, which has kept my past smokey eyes immaculate for hours on end. I also felt that the consistency of TFSI was much too liquidy and set too quickly to allow for a decent adhesive surface for eyeshadows to stick to in comparison to UDPP which gives a somewhat 'tacky' finish as well as sufficiently concealing any veins/discoloration on the eyelids (which TFSI offers none of). Overall I was very let down on this product and in the future would rather save my money and purchase UDPP which is only marginally more expensive but of immensely higher quality.

Horrible, horrible product. With or without setting powder it lasts at most 20 minutes before my skin is a greasy, disgusting mess and the entire product has dissolved on my skin by the end of the first hour leaving my skin blotchy and orange. The shade itself is a pathetic excuse for 'light'. My skin is at most an NC 10 (if that existed) and this looks totally ridiculous on me. This product was so horrendous that after about 2 uses I threw it out, refusing to pass it on to a friend.
Pros: Cheap #13 is great for pale skin Good buildable coverage Lasts pretty long Very fast delivery Cons: Can't control oil even with setting powder Broke me out Oxidized after an hour Alot of product is needed for even coverage
this was just overpriced crap tbh :/ i really regret buying it. it couldnt control my oil, turned orange and blotchy and broke me out horribley. my skin started clearing up literally the day after i stopped using it. after using it my skin looked really dull, old and fake (not flawless, just flat out fake). it felt really uncomfortable and itchy on and the packaging was pretty impractical too. wont even think of repurchasing.
This is the only foundation I've ever used which matches my super pale skin however after about an hour and a half it oxidized and went orange): i have really oily skin and after about and hour my face was already coated in grease and no amount of blotting papers or powder could salvage it so I literally ended up taking it off with wet tissues in the school bathroom cause it looked so horrible. it doesnt last at all and fades within 2 hours and is completely gone within 3. You can feel its thick heavy texture slipping and sliding across my face throughout the day. oh yeah did i mention it broke me out?
Ugh I'm so disappointed. It was so perfect: controled my oily skin, hid imperfections and lasted all day. Only thing is....IT BROKE ME OUT! Let's just say it covers the acne it causes great :/
hate hate HATE this product! such a waste of money! the coverage was crap, really light and sheer, NO covering of spots, redness etc yet still managed to turn me orange. it deffinitely didnt keep my skin matte, after about an hour i was a blotchy, shiney, orange mess the colours are really bad too. theres a small colour range and the product oxidises throughout the day, some parts orange, some parts lighter resulting in a REALLY uneven complexion another flaw is that it made my face really uncomfortable, itchy and tight and by the end of the day i couldnt wait to take it off. its also in my opinion harder to apply than revlon colour stay. its really difficult to work with and blend. oh by the way did i mention it BROKE ME OUT?
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Liquid Liner in Perversion

WORST LIQUID LINER EVER!!!! ok so i saved up for weeks and weeks for this stuff and it was such a mistake. packaging: is ridiculous!!! the brush is thick meaning its impossible to get a thin line and the bristles separate all the time which give you a really uneven blotchy line. too much product comes out on the brush meaning you have to swipe excess product out on the rim of the bottle, which then dries which means both wasted product and a crusty bottle. product: ok so a few days ago i put rimmel liquid liner on one eye and this on the other and the result after a few hours was crazy! 2 hours- rimmel: flawless urban decay: beginning to crack, separating 4 hours- rimmel: flawless urban decay- fading away, cracked 6 hours- rimmel: flawless urban decay- pretty much gone seriously do NOT waste your money
of course everyone has a different reaction but mine and the majority of peoples opinions on this product are negative ones. my skin was gereally in ok condition. a couple spots but nothing too bad and after a week of using this my skin had erupted into both sensitive red blemishes and disgusting mountains filled with puss. it looked aweful and 6 months after use my skins still recovering. when i actually wore the foundation it didnt blend wel at all which left me with blotches of orange foundation all over my face. it had 0 shine control and turned orange throughout the day although it only lasted 1-2 hours before fading. so in short: i hate this stuff! :P
OMG this is so incredible!! its such a bargain too :) i love how the sheets are so big and can really get around your face. it soaks up all the oil on my super oily face and leaves it feeling really refreshed and clean. will definitely re-purchase.

ok so i heard so many bad reviews and i was hesitant to buy this but im so glad i did! i admit its a very thick, waxy formula but i like how it feels on my lips and i didnt get any white-ness unless i totally cake it on. it didnt dramatically moisturize my lips but it did sort of. i also love to apply this on my lips, pat dry with a tissue and applpy my lip colour. i personally like the smell but its the kind of scent that lots of people wouldnt like. and, if i smell it too much, i kinda wanna get sick! i also like the slim, sleek packaging. its very small yet long which means it can easily be put in your pocket or thrown in your school bag :) overall i like this product.
