FINALLY! AT LAST! Everything I want in a powder foundation has arrived!

I have very oily skin, and for years have had an on again/off again relationship with Bare Minerals Matte. I loved its coverage, that it could be applied dry or wet, its weightless feel, and how it more or less kept me matte better than anything else. What I didn't love was that it was messy, got all over …

Eye Primer - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Eyeshadow Primer [DISCONTINUED]

This is a pointless product if you own concealer, because it's just as effective as using concealer for an eyeshadow primer. It works just fine, but not as good as UD eyeshadow primer. It will get you through an 8 hour day with just minimal creasing, but won't last into that evening all that well.

Yeah, it's cheap, but why bother? If your goal is to save money …

I desperately want to like this. It's like the crappy boyfriend you can't let go of cause he has like, one amazing trait (but 37 negative ones). I love you matte lipstick, come back! I'm dumping you...no come back! Whyyyy.

I have this in Perfect Red and in Merlot. Dang, what great colours for a cool-toned redhead. Perfect Red is a true neutral red, which is damn …

I hate the butter gloss with all of my soul and have a love/hate relationship with the matte lipstick, but this is just about perfect. Lemme tell you why!

I like day to day makeup to be stress free. I want to put it on, and not live in a state of paranoia, terrified that it has deteriorated into a crappy hot mess. The soft matte lip cream achieves this.

No lipliner …

Why does this have good reviews? I feel so duped. Thankfully, it was cheap.

First, I had to buy this and judge the colour off the colour of an opaque plastic tube. I hate that because I have found that the tube rarely matches the product. Argh.

I bought this in Red Velvet, which turned out to be quite brighter than the tube (so shocked--not). It's like you've …

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Glam Liner Aqua Luxe

I bought this in Glam Nude with the express intent of lining my lower lash (not the water line) line with it. Success!

This is beautiful metallic champagne nude. I'm very, very pale and this matches against my skin tone fairly well. If you have a darker complexion, it will stick out (that's not necessarily bad, just doesn't work for how I used it).

I wear …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - Ink for Eyes in Perversion (New Version)

May/01/2015

I just bought this yesterday and am already planning to return it. What a turd! It's like trying to line your eyes with a dried out marker. I started drawing my line, and some parts were solid and black, others were streaky grey, and then nothing at all was coming out. Very spotty in its application. It isn't even worth $1. I can't believe UD made such an utter fail of a …Read more

Powder - NYX Professional Makeup - Blotting Powder

This stuff has potential, but misses the mark. It's so close to being good...but no.

I wanted a tinted blotting powder for my purse. Typically, I use super-boring, super-normal Cover Girl oil control pressed powder. It is cheap and totally goof-proof. I decided to try something new, though, and now I'm left wondering why.

This NYX powder absorbs oil like a …

I've been using this product since about January. One of my New Year resolutions was to improve my skin, and I figured a "healthier" make-up could help with that.

I had been eyeballing this product ever since its initial release, but the price tag and small size was off-putting. "You can get a lot more product from other companies for the same amount of …
