The colors look a lot prettier in the pan than on the lid. They don't even look that different when on, and they look more grey than purple. If I want purple shadow I reach for something else, if I'm looking for a more grey smokey eye this is what I use. Basically, if you want a purple eyeshadow, don't buy this. I luckily got this for $10 so I will keep it, had I paid full price I …Read more

Is the brush huge? Yes but it's not THAT hard to deal with. 1 coat makes my lashes look great, 2 makes them look amazing. It lengthens AND volumizes AND curls. I have several mascaras that do one or two of those things but this is the only one that does all 3. My lashes are medium length and semi-thick but very straight, this mascara curls them up, makes them look super long and thick with …Read more

I just bought my second one of these. I use it on my waterline and it definitely stays put. I use a non-waterproof Maybelline pencil on my top lid because this one doesn't smudge very well and I like smudging the crap out of my top lid, but it works great on my waterline.

I've been using Smashbox's Oil Free Photo Finish for years and picked this up after getting a sample pack of it. I think Smashbox may work a tad better at oil control for extended wear, which I need, but I do like how much this product smooths my skin, moreso than the Smashbox primer. If I need my makeup to last more than 6-7 hours I go for Smashbox but for shorter outings I go for …Read more

This is my favorite powder to brighten my complexion. I don't like glittery powders; this has some shimmer to it but I wouldn't call it glitterey. It has very little color to it but just enough to darken my complexion just a tad, but not enough to make it look unnatural. I use a large powder brush and apply to my entire face. I also have the Too Faced Candlelight luminizing powder and I …Read more

This mascara is just ok. Doesn't really do what it claims to do, which is lengthen and curl. I have several other d/s brand mascaras that work much better. I do like the brush but it takes some doing to avoid clumping. I don't see myself reaching for this mascara very often as my waterproof Falsies by Maybelline provides much better results.

Another great shadow from UD. It's a beautiful shimmery bronze color. Pigmentation is a little light but with a primer it looks great, Goes great on the lid paired with smog on the crease.

I ordered this from skinobsessions.com, I think it's the same stuff. Yes, it burns, but the results are so worth it. I've had to deal with acne since I was a teenager (I am nearly 26 now) and the only thing that really helped with Accutane in my late teens. My skin was pretty great up until 6 months ago and (I think due to stress) my acne returned with a vengeance and this time the …Read more
