Beauty Product Reviews
Worth the hype.
I have rather oily lids and this stuff will make my shadows stick for the entire day. Is it full proof? No. If it's a particularly long and hot day (especially if I'm out in the sun), the primer probably will not last all day, but it still extends the life of my look by a significant amount. It dries rather quickly so it's not the best for use as a glitter base. Other than that, the price is pretty steep up front, but the product does last for a while and you don't neeed a lot of product to get the job done.
I love this palette. It's a great natural palette that will suite most skin tones. The colors lean warm so this may not be the best for very cool toned skin. However, it'll work very well for warm and neutral toned skin. The pigmentation is on par with most UD shadows and last a decent amount of time even without primer. There is only one glitter bomb in this palette (sidecar) and it is prone to fall out if you don't use some sort of base. The color itself is gorgeous, but be prepared for some glitter on your cheeks. There is a disproportionately large number of satin/shimmer colors in this palette. Now, I know this is Urban Decay and their claim to fame is bright and bold colors, but since this palette was suppose to be their everyday go-to palette, i was expecting a couple more matte shades. Since I am relatively young, the amount of shimmer does bother me personally since I would get very good use out of all the colors but someone with more mature skin may not gravitate toward this palette as it may accencuate fine lines if not applied correctly. Overall, this is a great palette for the value and for the quality. It is a rather lofty investment at $50, but I feel that it is well worth your money if you are looking for a quality natural palette.
Decent quality for the price.
This is a pretty good quality base coat. It's fast drying and decent for preventing nail yellowing with lighter colors. However, there might be some issues when it comes to dark colors and cheaper brands. I can't say too much of the wear to this base coat as I usually don't have a polish on for more than a few days at a time. But on the odd week that I keep a color on for more than three days, this base coat does help improve the wear as opposed to the nail color by itself. It's not my favorite, but it gets the job done.
