Urban Decay, what are you doing? I mean, I get the Naked line has run its course, but you're milking it for all you can get, but this palette is a hot mess.

Where do I start? I suppose we'll go with positives. The packaging is nice. They finally figured out that magnet closures are best, the palette looks very nice. The brush is alright, pretty typical for a freebie in a …

Ahh! I wanted to like this so badly! I have combination skin, so the struggle of my foundation search is finding a product that won't cling to the dry patches on my skin, but also won't turn my oily areas into an oil slick by the end of the day. I wore this for around 4 hours without setting, and was an oil slick. My dry areas looked great, but this just didn't work on my oily …Read more

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Revolution Lipstick in Naked [DISCONTINUED]

This is the PERFECT MLBB for me. Pinky nude with not too much brown, looks very natural and soft, especially for when I do a bold eye look; it brings that "put togetherness" that you can't get from just a balm or the like, but it isn't detracting from the rest of my look.

$22 is a bit much for a lipstick IMO, I got this in "The Ultimate Pair" set at Ulta …

A pretty good palette over all, my go-to for a neutral look. I wouldn't call it "natural" or anything, it's certainly not a "no makeup-makeup" palette, but it's nice. The only shade I really feel is odd is the Chocolate Martini shade; I'm really not sure what I'm supposed to do with a deep-ish brown with gold shimmer. Maybe good for a brown smokey …Read more

Palettes - Too Faced - Matte Eye

Yeah, I really don't know what I was thinking when I purchased this. I already knew TF didn't do matte shadows well (VERY difficult to blend, even with dense brushes), but I held out hope. I was disappointed.

The top row is the best row, and the deepest color column is absolutely the worst performing column. The purples look like a black eye, and the blue is uninspired and …

When I first got this, I loved it. It was a great value, cute colors, etc. etc.

As someone who has grown incredibly as a makeup wearer since then, I really don't reach for this. The colors are tough to blend, especially the matte shades, and often they don't show true to pan. The dark purple is basically a black on the lid, very little purple translates. Kiss the Bride is a …

Absolutely adore this for a subtle, everyday highlight. I do target this on my cheekbones, since I have combination skin, but I can imagine that if you had normal skin, this would add a lot of life to your complexion as an all-over radiant powder.

Very cheap and tons of product in the package are extra bonuses!

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Dream Wonder Fluid Touch [DISCONTINUED]

I love to use this foundation as a sort of mixing foundation. I add it to either lotion or my primer to sheer it out some, and apply with either a brush or a dampened RT sponge. I love the way it looks on my skin, more glowy with lotion and more matte with primer. The lightest shade (Porcelain Ivory) is a bit too yellow for me, but it's certainly not noticeable when it's sheered …Read more

A great set of brushes, though I gave away the flat foundation brush (just not something I use, no matter the size). I suppose they are small, though I knew this when I purchased them and don't mind at all. In fact, my hands and face are pretty small, so they're a perfect size for me. I use the pink-ferruled brush to apply blush when I want precise application, I use the bronze-ferruled …Read more

Absolutely great reformulation of the original NYX Taupe blush. I use this as a contour color, and on my very fair skin, it looks so wonderfully natural.

I only roll my brush on the surface of this product, and receive plenty for one cheek; it is a bit powdery, but as long as you don't dig into it (and I really don't think you need to, it's very pigmented), that's …
