I am so in love with this product, it is my HG for applying liquid foundation. <br> <br>

Prior to buying the sponge I avoided liquid foundations. I need a good bit of coverage (for acne scarring, occasional blemishes, and naturally rosy cheeks). I had tried using my fingers, standard latex sponges, regular foundation brushes, and even a skunk brush, which all left me …

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Ultimate Expressions Eyeshadow Palette - Paradise Cove 397 [DISCONTINUED]

I love this palette! The shadows are highly pigmented and very smooth (a couple even feel as creamy as my Stila shadows, known for their buttery texture). The colors go well together and it is easy to match 3 or 4 for a nice look. I can asily create day or night looks with this. The colors are shimmery but not overly frosty or glittery. I know people had problems with the Sand Castle palette …Read more

Blush - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Shy

Jun/26/2008

This is a lovely soft pink color that gives me a fresh look without being too overdone. I can see already after a few wears it'll become a staple for me. IT is very pigmented and must be applied with a light hand (especially for PPP girls like me) to keep from looking like a clown. I use my MAC 187, lightly swirl it, tap off excess, then tap lightly onto skin. It only takes a tiny bit …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Trio TS15

I LOVE this trio- it's the perfect set of neutrals to use all together or with other great colors. I only bought it one week ago but I can tell it's quickly becoming one of my staple items. The shades in this trio are Aloha, Mink Brown, and Deep Bronze, and the shades can differ slightly from the NYX singles of the same name. <br><br>

I have blue/green eyes and …

Palettes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Elements 4-pan Compact [DISCONTINUED]

I bought 5 of these in my first ELF order and now need several more. This compact is perfect for holding depotted MAC shadows as well as other brands like NYX trios, Urban Decay, Smashbox, and Milani. Cheaper than buying MAC quads, these are just as good in quality and even have a large mirror in the compact, very handy. I'll be buying many more of these.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Frost - Vellum

I love this shadow! It's a fabulous highlight color when doing a blue or purple look. It's blue/violet frost quality allows it to act as a chameleon, looking more bluish when paired with a blue look and more violet when paired with a purple look. I do alot of purple looks and use this as a highlight almost everytime, it works just as well with blues. Would gladly buy again if I ever …Read more

Makeup Brushes - bareMinerals - Heavenly Liner Brush

Jun/03/2008

I am in love with this brush! Got in a 4-piece set at Ulta and this brsh alone was almost worth it. The bristles are really soft, and it does its job perfectly. It won't give you a precise line and I never se it for liner alone- the bristles aren't stiff enough to do any thin "tightlining"- but that's not what it's made for. I find this brsh PERFECT for blending …Read more

This color of Benefit's Silky Finish Lipstick is one of 3 released LE in spring 2008. It appears pinky fuschia in the tube but applies as a subtler red-pink. I love the formula of all benefit's silky finihs l/s's and was excited to get this LE color, however when inspecting my stash I discovered this color is almost the EXACT same color as another benefit (regular line) silky …Read more

I got this shade as part of the UD Skull shadow palette, but love it so much I'll buy a full size as soon as I'm out. Very versatile yellowy gold shade, just the right amount of shimmer. On my PPP skin I can use it as a wash over the lid or as a darker browbone color. I love using this in combo with vert and shattered for a tropical look, or with Stila's summer for a nice warm …Read more

Concealers - bareMinerals - Well Rested Under Eye Brightener SPF 20

Mar/05/2008

I agree with previous reviews that the brush you use with this product really does matter. The first time, I applied this with my BE max. coverage concealor brush (it's what I use when I put the BE foundation under my eyes). It looked HORRIBLE. Very caked on, it settled into lines (and I don't even have many!), and just looked...fake. <br><br>
