24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil

Pros: great color selection, doesn't irritate eyes, goes on incredibly easily, cruelty free. Cons: comes off just as easily as it went on. It doesn't smear or run or anything it just...disappears. So with that in mind, I only use it when I really only need to look good short term. For that it's fine. I'll continue to use it but I won't repurchase. I have it in demolition, a nice matte brown on the cool-neutral side of things.

Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation

This is by far one of the best foundations I have tried in the last couple of years, and I have tried plenty in my search for the perfect, medium coverage, nicely moisturizing, very long lasting and radiantly natural looking foundation. I know, I know, hard to find, but at my age foundation can look very aging because it highlights the skin texture, so it is even harder to find the HG that looks like my (younger) skin but better. I was given two generous samples at Sephora so I could wear it for over 3 weeks and I loved it! I had tried last year the previous version, the Naked foundation but, although it looked gorgeous upon application, it oxidized and separated after few hours and started looking not so "naked". This one, on the other hand, only oxidizes a tiny bit and stays on and on leaving my skin plump, radiant and healthy. There are also plenty of shades and they all look very natural, like if they "adjust" a bit once on the skin. I had some tan and I was given NN30 and NN31 and both looked very nice, but I guess I could wear many more. The only reason I didn't immediately buy a bottle is that I need a very high SPF in summer, so I tried also IT Cosmetics CC cream with 50SPF, which I also learned to use (after several trials) and to love. But I don't exclude to buy this one for the winter months.

This was a hand-me-down from a friend. With the legendary status attributed to this pallet, I was somewhat surprised to find how shimmery and glittery most of the shades are. It makes it hard to create everyday workable looks without looking over the top. Quality is fine, but ColourPop is as good or better for less than 1/2 the price. The shade selection is still fun, but with most of it being dark, dramatic and full of sparkle, this is best suited to evening and intense smoky eyes. Not something I reach for daily.
