I picked this foundation up a while ago with several other items from this brand.
Let me start off by saying that I'm not impressed by this product in any way. The only thing attractive is the price, but I would rather spend $10 - $20 on a product that performs well than spend $3 and be so disappointed.
The packaging is horrid, considering how thick this foundation is. It needs …

Misc Beauty Tools - Palladio Beauty - Rice Powder Blotting Papers

I refuse to leave the house without taking these with me.
I can't recommend them enough to ladies who have oily skin, or whose jobs require them to work up a sweat. I'm a bartender and my job usually has me running all over the place so these are my lifesaver (facesaver?) by the time 7 P.M. rolls around.
I love the fact that they have powder on them! I own the ones with …

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Beauty Book - Eye Brights Edition

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2012

For the price, this set isn't too bad. You get 12 eye shadows, an eyeliner and a double-ended sponge shadow applicator (which I never use because I prefer brushes unless using baked shadows).
The shadows themselves are hit or miss. Some have excellent pigmentation and staying power, while others have next to no color payoff and cause fallout all over your face. Some of the shadows …

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Idol Eyes Creme Shadow - Techno

This is such a cheap product. It creases not long after application, even with a primer applied! How disappointing, as it's a very nice color. I was so excited when I bought it.
Once while applying it, the entire tip of exposed shadow just broke right off, so I had to sharpen it down to use it. I really wasn't even pressing very hard! It just has no staying power. …

Eyeliner - Femme Couture - Gel Eyeliner in Black

May/28/2012

I picked this up because I was looking for a cheaper alternative to Manic Panic's Spider Liner. Well, this is a heck of a lot cheaper ($6 vs. $17) but it doesn't quite have the staying power of the Spider Liner. It definitely shows when you've had a rough day.
Another reviewer noted that a little bit goes a long way and I have to agree. I've had the pot for a few …

Okay, I'll admit that I bought this quad on impulse. It looked so neat with the flower motif! I purchased it because I wanted to get a nice smokey eye look and I thought this set would be perfect for that.
Well, the color payoff is only so-so. You really have to cake it on or use an excellent primer. The staying power isn't so powerful. It collects in the eyelid crease and …

Loose Powders - Palladio Beauty - Rice Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2012

This product is an excellent oil control powder. I use a loose powder brush and apply a bit to areas of my face that I know tend to be oily. I haven't used the enclosed puff. I'm a brush kind of girl.
A little bit of this product tends to go a long way.
I haven't tried applying it as a setting powder all over my face, so I can't comment on the efficacy of that …

Highlighters - Physicians Formula - Mineral Glow Pearls - Translucent Pearl

May/28/2012

My first Physician's formula product and I'm impressed!
I use this on my nose, cheekbones, forehead and even on my shoulders and chest (depending on the cut of my shirt) and it gives a nice, airbrushed look.
I do NOT use the included brush. I hate that thing. It's useless. Other users have mentioned using an angled brush. I use a blush brush so that I don't …

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Mega Eyes - Wicked [DISCONTINUED]

May/28/2012

I really wish they hadn't discontinued this one: It's a great charcoal color that works well when creating smokey eyes. I think I paid about $1 for it a few years ago (Summer of '09) and I've barely hit pan, there's so much product in this shadow pot!
It contains some glitter, but not enough that you'll have to worry about glitter fallout all over your face. …

Eye Shadow - NYC New York Color - City Duet in Upper Zest Side

Created with Sketch.

May/28/2012

First, let me explain why I wouldn't repurchase a product that I'm rating so highly: I only purchase cruelty-free cosmetics, and since purchasing my last batch of NYC products, the company has reverted to animal testing. When this batch of products is gone, I'm not repurchasing unless they stop. With that out of the way...
I love these two shades. I think they're …
