If you're on a budget, its pretty good.
I bought the formula for dry/combination skin. The bottle is thick, heavy, and sturdy. Which I love. But I HATE the fact that its just a bottle with an open mouth on top. You have to pour the foundation out to get any. I'd really prefer a pump bottle because it's much more sanitary. The foundation itself is a pretty decent medium/full coverage matte formula. I'm not a big fan of the way it looks on, though. It tends to make my skin look like I have tons and tons of foundation on, even when I've only applied a sheer layer. The only way I can get it to look natural is by mixing it with my moisturizer (but that ruins the full coverage that I need!) But I will say that this foundation does exactly what it says it will. It STAYS. Forever. I can put this foundation on in the morning and know that I will definitely look the same 12 hours later. And it doesn't transfer or oxidize. I usually use this as my backup foundation, for when I run out of my regular one. Or I'll use it if I'm going somewhere where I don't need to look flawless. Overall, its a fantastic foundation for the price. But I'd rather save my money and buy something better.

One of the best matte eyeshadows I've come across
I really love these shadows. But then again, I love anything from Urban Decay. These shadows are smooth, pigmented, and gorgeous. They blend fabulously. Especially for matte shadows. In the pan, they seem to have a little bit of shimmer. But I assure you, once you put it on, it's 100% matte. No shimmer at all. The packaging is the same as the regular UD shadows (besides the color. These are bronze instead of silver). I have Yeyo, Chronic, Narcotic, Revolver, and Naked. And I love ALL of them. I really hope they come out with more colors, because the selection isn't really large (though, its not extremely small either. Moderate sized with a decent number of both neutral and bright shades. But there can always be more!) Overall, I would definitely say that these are worth the money.

Gross. Absolutely gross.
This stuff is disgusting. I own one color, which is a clear gloss with rainbow glitter inside. The glitter is chunkier than any other glitter I've seen inside a gloss, but it's still fine enough to be wearable. If only the gloss itself were wearable. The gloss is sticky and felt absolutely disgusting. Though the shine was decent, the glitter was beautiful, and it did look nice on, I couldn't wait to take it off. It felt very heavy on my lips. But the worst part was the taste and smell. I don't know if mine had just been sitting on the racks forever, but it smells and tastes of dish soap. The second I put it on, I gagged. Don't even bother with this stuff. Spend the money on a decent gloss.

Fantastic if you love blinding pain.
I love Urban Decay. I mean, I REALLY love Urban Decay. But this is honestly one of the worst mascaras I've ever tried. First time I got it, I took it home only to realize that it was 100% dried up. I brought it back, got a new one and was disappointed all over again. When I wore it, It really didn't do anything for my lashes. They weren't thick, they weren't long, and they were all clumped together. But the worst thing about this mascara is the flakes. It flaked SO bad, I actually had to take it off seconds after putting it on because there were VERY large chunks of mascara in my eyes. But hey, at least the tube is pretty to look at.

Works better as a coaster than a compact!
I bought it hoping for at least a decent sheer coverage powder. And I got sheer. Really sheer. Translucent, really. This has NO coverage at all. You can layer it on until you hit the bottom of the pan and you'll only look worse. And if you put on too much, your skin will look dreadful. Not really cakey. Just dry. Kind of shriveled up and alien-looking. At least, that's what my cheeks looked like. It made my pores look giant. And mine aren't small to begin with. Long story short, I use it over my finished foundation if I'm disgustingly oily half way through the day. And I can't really use it more than twice because of the fear that I'll look like worse than I did when I was covered in oil. Don't waste your money. Don't waste your time. This stuff sucks.

Wonderful scent. But you don't have to pay full price.
This is a really beautiful scent. I wear it particularly heavily (I bathe in it, haha), but its not extremely strong. I wear it everyday and I've gotten a reputation for my scent. I'm always "the girl who smells nice". My only reservation is the price. The good thing? If you shop around, you can buy tester bottles. They're all over the internet. I've stocked up on testers and I haven't run out yet. The tester bottles are usually about $17. That's how much I pay for mine. The testers that I've gotten are about 3 and a half oz. And its a wonderful bargain. Worth much more than $17.

I found this foundation browsing my local Ulta. I have pretty sensitive skin, so I decided to try it. This was about a year and a half ago and I haven't changed foundations since! After a long search for my perfect foundation, I finally found it. Its oil-free and non-comedogenic. Great for acne and aging skin. And it lasts ALL DAY. I wake up at 4am to get ready for school and I don't get back until after 3pm. When I get home, my foundation is still perfect. The bottle will last you quite a while. I use it with a pretty heavy hand (in order to cover all of my acne), and a bottle usually lasts me a couple months. It provides medium-heavy coverage and builds very well. It sets well by itself, but I always set it with a loose translucent powder to make it last even longer. It comes in 14 shades from very light to quite dark. It should suit most skin colors. It is 100% worth the money. And I am very picky with my foundations. I would suggest this foundation to anyone looking for something gentle with a good amount of coverage. You won't be disappointed!

Good if you want your eyes to burn.
I love Urban Decay. Its one of my favorite brands. But ow! This stuff is painful! It does what it was meant to do, but it isn't gentle or merciful. I cried all my makeup off and had to start all over again. This stuff burns. Besides that, its pretty good. It does was it was intended to do and it does it well. But I wouldn't buy it again.

Blackhead eliminating? Not so much.
I have some pretty stubborn blackheads. And I've been using this twice daily for a few months now. Sometimes three times. It hasn't touched my blackheads at all. But as a scrub? Its great. Those little beads really go to town on dead skin. But that's about it. A little disappointing for me, but great if you just want a facial scrub.

An absolute must!
I'm a big fan of bright and intricate eyeshadow. And I needed something that really held it in place all day. From starting my makeup at 4am to getting back home from school at 3pm (and sometimes even later), this primer hold my eyeshadow in place perfectly. There is never a crease or a smudge. Its even survived a lengthy and embarrassing public cry. It is one thing in my makeup collection that I will never let myself run out of. But why a 9? Why not a 10? Well, that's not because of the product. The only part of this product that disappointed me was the bottle. You can never get all the product out of the bottle. Even if you take out the rubber stopper, there's still enough product to last you months. So don't ever throw it out when you think it's empty! Its not empty until you cut that bottle open and dig all the product out! But besides that, its gold in a bottle.
