Here are all my reviews:
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

    One of the overall best eyeliners I've ever used! It goes on creamy and will set matte. I love that if you go to work right away, it's perfectly smudge-able before it sets. I've used Onyx, Whiskey, and Rockstar, depending on the occasion. If I were a teenager, I would totally experiment with all of the fun colors! Because I'm 40, I do wish that the Rockstar color didn't have a sparkle to it, I would use it a lot more because the deep purple brings out the green in my amber-green hazel eyes. Whiskey smudged on my outer-lower lashes is perfect for day-time! Onyx is great for nighttime and for my theatrical makeup when I'm onstage. I will continue to purchase this as long as they don't change up the formula!

  • Urban Decay Naked Palette

    Urban Decay Naked Palette

    Excellent product, pretty, nice neutrals

    These palettes are a great way to try UD's eyeshadows. I wish there were more matte shades, and there are only a few of the shades that I use regularly, which is why I knocked off 3 stars, but the shades I use (Virgin, Naked, and Buck) I love. Because of the eyeliner it came with, you actually get quite a lot for the money. I've fallen in love with the 24/7 eyeliner! I do wish that the darker shades were more blend-able.

  • Physicians Formula Gentle Cover Concealer Stick

    Works well. I bought the yellow (supposed to be for under-eye circles), green (acne), and light. The light gives me pretty good coverage for some areas of melasma (dark pigmentation) on my nose, forehead, and above my lip. The green does work well to counteract red acne as long as you don't over-do it. I would not recommend the yellow. Sets nicely with powder. Definitely keep away from wrinkles!

  • Anastasia Brow Fix
    8.0

    Anastasia Brow Fix

    Great brow tamer

    When I ran out of the cream brow wax from their brow-express palette, this was the closest product I could find to replace it without having to purchase a whole new palette, so I simply use this to refill the wax on my palette! It is rather pricey, and I find it to be a bit too creamy to set the brows perfectly. However it works more effectively than brow gel. I actually break off the sharpened wax into the palette pan and dip my brush into the wax. I find I have greater precision than when I try to use it straight from the pencil. I've purchased this 2 or 3 times, and anticipate continuing to do so.

  • Anastasia Brow Express Palette
    8.0

    Anastasia Brow Express Palette

    Quality, unmatched products. Pricey, but worth it.

    To be honest, I need to purchase this again because mine is so old. The brow colors go on feathery and light. They blend very well. I didn't have much success in using the brow templates. I never really used the brow bone highlight, because I felt it was a bit to frosty rather than shimmer. It's also a cream texture that didn't work well with my powder-based makeup. The cream brow wax is awesome! It works beautifully to tame and even shape the brows. When I ran out of it, but not the brow powders, bought their brow fix and refilled the palette with that!

  • E.L.F. Mineral Blush
    10.0

    E.L.F. Mineral Blush

    My All-time favorite blush!

    I originally began purchasing several of the products from their mineral line because of the price. My budget was just too tight to spend money on the pricier boutique brand. However, I've fallen in love with this line, but particularly this blush in Pink. It gives a beautiful natural glow, that just gives my skin tone, and my whole face a "lift". A drawback to this mineral line, is that it's very easy to get too much product on your brush, which is not only waste, but a sure way to end up looking awful. Once you get the hang of getting just the right amount in the lid, and swirling and tapping the brush to end up with the perfect amount of product for a sheer application, you will fall in love! Very inexpensive and lasts a long, long time! By the way, don't forget to start with a really quality makeup brush!

  • E.L.F. Mineral Glow
    9.0

    E.L.F. Mineral Glow

    Another excellent value

    Great for contouring or just adding a warm glow. As with every powder based makeup, using quality brushes with a light-handed touch is key. Lasts a very long time as a little goes a long way.

  • Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder
    2.0

    Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder

    I saw no difference

    The first problem I had with this, is that it does not mix well with certain products. More importantly, I did not notice any appreciable difference in the appearance of my skin after using this daily for 6 months. I would not buy this again.

  • E.L.F. Mineral Concealer

    E.L.F. Mineral Concealer

    Excellent product for the $$$$

    Years ago, I fell in love with mineral makeup, when I first tried the more expensive "pioneer" if-you-will, mineral product of the industry I thought I would never use another makeup line again. Until I discovered this mineral line a number of years ago. Once I tried them I never went back. I use their mineral foundation, concealer, blush, and bronzer, and I'm constantly getting compliments on how beautiful my skin is (even though I'm 40, and still struggle with acne. You just can't beat the price, especially when they have 50% sales! The secret is to use great makeup brushes (and keep them clean!) and be sure not to apply with a heavy hand.

    E.L.F. Mineral Foundation

    Excellent value

    While this is not the best mineral foundation in the world, you can't beat the price! I use this for my "everyday" makeup up, and I find that it gives a nice sheer application, as other reviews state (even negative) that you can hardly tell it's there. It also has a nice build-able quality. I apply all over my face and neck with a kabuki brush, and the go back over my acne or other problem areas with a concealer or foundation brush.
