Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Half-N-Half

This is a great slightly darker-than-nude lipstick for an NC30. I wanted something like Velvet Teddy (which I do love) but a little creamier, less gray-toned and less drying. After buying, and never using, Honey Love an SA directed me towards this paired with Spiced lip pencil. I love it!

My go to nude was always Velvet Teddy with Cork lip pencil, but Cork and Half N Half or Spiced and …

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/03/2011

Best foundation I've ever used.

It is medium to full coverage, but doesn't cake up or look like i'm wearing foundation at all. A lot of foundatinos claim this, but this is the only one I think is true.

Also, it really does stay MATTE all day and it just looks like my skin. Doesn't get oily or bunch up in my pores. It feels completely weightless and all …

I bought the entire set of crackle glazes, and this is the only one that is a must have. The formula is the best and the shatters/crackles form beautifully. No issues with noncracking.

Liquid - RIMMEL - Renew & Lift [DISCONTINUED]

Dislike. I saw it on sale and went for it.

For a liquid foundation, this has NO coverage and is the texture of a tinted moisturizer. Not what I am looking for. It is a "dewy" finish, but because it is so sheer it comes off like your face is sweaty. Definitely requires more concealing and powdering to use this.

Mascara - Stila - Lash Visor (New- Fall 2004)

Very surprised. I usually hate Stila Mascaras (have tried 3 other formulas, all TERRIBLE). This one is great. It lengthens and curls well, although it could do a bit better with thickening. Doesn't smudge or flake. I like the brush and the packaging as well.

Mascara - Hard Candy - 1,000 Lashes Fiberized Mascara

Was this product never tested on HUMANS? Wtf!!! I've used plenty of fiber mascaras (Imju, L'Oreal, Too-faced) and this was the scariest one ever.

First off, a fibrous mascara shouldn't look like fibers until its on your eyes/you're taking your makeup off. I could see the fiber pieces on the wand before application. I should have known better, but thought …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Post Haste

Wow, people. Don't hate just because you have no idea how to use a hot pink!

First, this color is amazingly pigmented. The texture is a perfect, as are all the matte squared from MAC. It goes on bright and blends like a dream.

For everyone that says this color makes them look sickly, I'm going to guess you have trouble with all pinks. Your bad, not the shadow …

Makeup Brushes - Avon - All Over Shadow Brush

I'm pleasantly surprised at how good this brush is.

Its soft, yet dense. It can pack on eyeshadow, but also blend. It actually reminds me a LOT of the MAC 217 (which I own two of) because it is so versatile.

It may look like MUFE's concealer palette, but the product inside could not be more different. Don't kid yourselves, people... this is not a high-end concealer in any way, shape or form.

The lightest shade is WAY too sticky. It offers so-so coverage, but does not blend well. My brush literally sticks to it and drags on my skin. Definately do not use this on your undereye or …

I have Nivea tinted balm in the cherry shade, so I bought this as well. Cherry is great, this one is TERRIBLE. It gives you "jizz lips." Way too pale.
