I bought this at Sephora on a whim because I kept seeing it everywhere and wanted to try it. Well, it really is too dark for me/my eyes & skin tone. You definitely need to wear something under it because it is like an empty color- needs a backup to help make it pop. It just wasn't for me since I expected a lot for $22!

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer

The first thing I noticed while using this product was the smell. It's like putting gasoline on your face... It does feel smooth, but I didn't notice my liquid or powder makeup lasting longer with the primer. I typically have near-perfect skin and adding this product to my face caused me to break out- not a baby break-out, but a HUGE breakout. It's not worth the money! If I …Read more

I swear by this stuff! Honestly for $1 you cannot get a better product. This eyeliner lasts all day (with primer) and is AWESOME. If you rub your eyes it may come off a little. Also, occaisionally it cracks (you cannot really notice, do not worry), but you can easily fix it. Great little brush included for application. Don't waste your money on anything else- SERIOUSLY!! When applied …Read more

Honestly never loved a mascara this much before! I have a really hard time making my eyelashes look good because I feel that they aren't very full or long. This mascara gives just enough volume AND length together. I was skeptical at first (like most of my friends), but will never look back now that I've tried it. Beware- if you are not careful it WILL give you …Read more

Overall, I am not impressed. After all of the hype it's received I was definitely expecting better. I really can't wear golds or blacks for some reason, so a lot of the colors are no bueno for me. It did however introduce me to Side Car and Naked, which I love! I pretty much use it everyday, but I could live without it. Don't kid yourself, just try it in store and buy the …Read more

Perfect highlight color, great shimmer, NO GLITTER (yay!). I really love this color and believe it would look good on everyone. I also really like the PP of the same color. Good by itself too if you're looking for a simple light look! A 3 on price because I hate paying $17 for eyeshadow!

I love UD eyeshadows and have pretty much come to terms with dealing with glitter fall-out... It's unfortunate, but true. This color would probably look better on someone with green eyes, but I like to use it to tone down darker colors. It's a great sandy color, which is nice for neutral days. When people talk about fall-out, they aren't kidding so keep that in mind when …Read more

I love this color SO much. It is one of my go-to colors to wear all over, as a highlighter, or whatever. Great at all times of the day, wonderful color on my brown eyes. One HUGE problem though: the glitter fall out. Unless you want to look like a fairy princess, you're going to have to get creative to keep it from getting all over your face. Like I said, I LOVE this color, but …Read more

I love UD eyeshadows. Stray Dog was the first I ever purchased and it's great for a neutral day look, as well as evening look. It isn't my favorite color, but it's still great. It is a little shimmery too. You can pretty much make it do whatever you like!

I had never tried Benefit cosmetics before and was curious/in need of a nice blush, so I decided to give Sugarbomb a try! I really like it as a blush- it isn't too bright and you have the ability to make it as light or dark as you wish. I really LOVE the shimmery effects it has- if you're not looking for shimmer, don't be scared it isn't TOO shimmery- I actually put on a …Read more
