Perfect setting powder
I love this face powder. I have it in Sheer and I feel like it doesn't get cakey, it lasts a long time, and it mattes my face.
It helps kick shine longer
I have very oily T-zones, so I picked this up at Target one day. I use it right after my primer, but under my foundation. It definitely helps keep shine at bay longer, but only for maybe an extra hour or two. I find myself retouching my nose and forehead about 4-5 hours after application, which beats every 2 hours.
Does what it says
I only use this product when my eyebrows have a mind of their own (normally when I sleep on them oddly). I don't find that it blew me away, but it does keep my eyebrows pretty shaped. Only thing I don't like, when you apply it, it flattens your eyebrows and when I comb them with my eyebrow brush, the product clumps on the bristles as well as comes off my eyebrows a bit. I have to use a separate eyebrow brush when using this product, or else I end up with wax build up next time I use it. Other than that, it does what it says it does.
Shadows are great, lip colors are not
I use this palette almost everyday. Its a great starter nude palette. I found the colors to be very smooth, easy and to blend. I wish the lighter shades were a bit more pigmented, but they are still workable. The lip colors aren't so good. They are like a gloss, that are borderline sheer. They are also very very sticky. For travel, I love this palette.
I really like this lipstick. Its very pigmented and has a good color selection. It tends to dry my lips though, so I have to use it with a bit of lip gloss. Otherwise, its pretty good.
I originally purchase this because it claimed to have minimal creasing, which I didn't find to be true. However, I use it as a brow highlighter when I shape my eyebrows, and its pretty good. Its a bit dry though, so blending isn't the easiest.
I have this lipstick in Snow White and it is, without a doubt, my favorite red lipstick. Super pigmented, long lasting and doesn't dry out my lips like most lipsticks. I want it in all the shades!!!
Great for no makeup/makeup days
I only use this powder foundation when I'm going for that 'nude face' look. It's light coverage, so I'll typically use a tinted moisturizer underneath to help a little with discoloration. I'm a huge fan of the matte face look, and this definitely gives me that, however, my face starts to get a bit shiny after about 4-5 hours. But because it is light coverage, I can easily reapply. It doesn't look cakey on the skin either. I do not use the brush it came with though. It started to shed after my first use.
This eyeliner is very pigmented and long lasting. I really like it. One thing, I wish the applicator brush was a bit thinner. I am a huge fan of winged eyeliner, and I found that it was difficult to have a super thin winged look. Not sure if it was just a production mistake or something. Otherwise, its pretty great.
