    Urban Decay Naked2 Palette

    I have never loved a palette more!

    At first look the colors are mesmerizing and beautiful. I almost didn't even want to use this palette when I first got it! I never wore eyeshadow because I always thought it made me look weird. When I got this palette, I started to wear eyeshadow every day. There are shades for every occasion and every outfit. I love the brush that it comes with because the bristles aren't stiff and it gets the job done. I alternate between the lid brush and the crease brush and I'm a fan of both! The actual shadow goes on very nicely and blends in nicely (it doesn't leave harsh lines). I have found that I like to use my finger to apply some of the shadows because it's more noticeable than when I use the brush. I don't use a lot of the colors and I wish they would make a mini Naked2 palette of just "Foxy", "Half Baked", "Bootycall" and "Tease" but I'll totally take all of them! This has lasted me so long and it's so worth the price.

  • Stila Perfecting Concealer

    Someone at Ulta suggested this product for me. At first, I loved it and never would have dreamed of giving it less than an 11. But as I used it more and more, I found that it isn't as perfect as I thought. I have dry, sensitive skin...but I can't moisturize my skin too much or else I break out. This concealer blends in well with my skin tone, I'll give it that, but when it's put on slightly dry places on my skin (such as my under eyes) it gets cakey and makes me look horrible! If I moisturize right before I put it on, the consistency is usually very nice, but if I don't, it seems dry and I have to work harder to blend it in. Sometimes, if I apply generous amounts, I find that it has sunk into my creases and makes it noticeable, but usually I just run a finger across it and the problem is fixed for good...or at least until next time. Overall I do like this concealer but it doesn't deliver the promises the price makes.

    Benefit Brows a-go-go

    Alright product

    I received this as a gift. I do my eyebrows all on my own, tweezing and everything. My eyebrows are thin, but not too thin and they are darker than my hair, but not too dark. I'll start by saying I hate the tweezers. They hardly move and don't even get a hold of hairs. I threw those away. The brow highlighter was uneven and unnatural. It highlighted, but it looked like I put pink eyeshadow under my eyebrows! Ugh! I like the small applicator brush that it came with, though. It was small and was able to get to the thinnest part of my eyebrows. Before I got this, I had never filled in my eyebrows. I used the lighter of the two brow powders and when I was done, I looked unnatural. I blame that on how much I put on and that I didn't know what I was doing. As I got better at filling in my eyebrows, I used less and less but it still looked nice. It doesn't look unnatural anymore with the right amount. The wax is too sticky and doesn't work. I would say this is way too expensive for the terrible quality. I would not recommend this or purchase it.

  • Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer - Broad Spectrum SPF 30

    I went to a Nars counter in New York and got my makeup done by a makeup artist there. She dolled me up and then gave me a free sample of the Nars tinted moisturizer in "Finland". I don't like wearing *too* much foundation or powder and I can't use moisturizers too often or else I start breaking out. I wasn't excited about trying this because most tinted moisturizers don't work for me. When I tried this, I was amazed. It went on smooth, and gave the illusion that I had perfect skin! It gives a nice glow and doesn't feel heavy at all. It's like and powder goes on nicely on top! It covered my blemishes and disguised my freckles I bought it when I was out, and although it was pricey, I know it will last me a long time and it's well worth the money. Plus the SPF is just high enough to keep me from burning! Love!
