Pros: brightening, soft focus, lightweight, non drying
I have actually gone through 3 of these over the years. I can't use the original foundation because of the bismuth, but this powder works wonderfully for finishing any makeup look! I have tried other brands mineral finishing powders and dusts and either the color or texture or something is off and I keep coming back to this! I have fair to light skin and I feel that this helps brighten my skin slightly as well as add a nice soft focus finish over my mineral or liquid foundation in any brand! It may not be the least expensive, but definitely not the most expensive loose powder you could try, but I have found it to be the best for my sensitive dry skin! Just remember when using any powder on your face to really hydrate your skin well before and you will have no problems!

Pros: smooth, fills lines, long lasting, good for sensitive skin, weightless
Funny that I didn't even like this product when I first tried it. I have found through trial and error that if you put this on and wait a few minutes before applying either powder or liquid foundation on top this works wonders! I have a few lines on my forehead and some nose pores that I am not too fond of and this helps so much with both of those problems! I love the silky and weightless feel and I love that there is no color to this so everything looks great over top of it! Not to mention this is less expensive than a lot of high end primers that I have tried and didn't like at all! Also lasts all day on me even in the hot summer! One other great factor, this doesn't irritate my sensitive skin! Give it a shot! Love it!

I had the opportunity to see these lipsticks in person before I picked one and I will be back for more! I got this in 'Lead the Way' which is the darker looking berry color... and it is AMAZING! By far my favorite lipstick I own! I am a fair girl and never would have picked this out from the description but I am in love with it! This lipstick can generate so many different looks from a beautiful berry stain to a deep vampy fall lip! It goes gorgeous under lipgloss and I have no problems with it migrating onto my teeth or outside my lip lines. 'Lead the Way' is the PERFECT fall color if that is what you are going for! You could even use it well into spring using it as a lighter stain. I intend on trying more colors, but seriously don't be scared by this dark one! Gorgeous color!!

I got a sample of this concealer and was so happy that it was the right shade! I received shade 2 and it works perfectly with my fair/light skin. I am a fan of the doe foot applicator for concealer. Just a dab under each eye, blend and you are good! I found it easy to blend in and you only needed a little to cover the area. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it had just a touch more coverage. If you layer your foundation on top though it works well. My favorite part is how natural this looks! I don't find any creasing throughout the day and it always looks fresh and nice! Great product!

Pros: long lasting, extremely black, easy to apply, mega volume
I know it is hard to have 1 mascara make absolutely everyone happy, but I am so happy that it works for me! I love this stuff! I do have pretty long lashes to begin with, but this gives me amazing volume! I feel it separates my lashes so well and grabs every lash to give me that super 'full' lash look! I love it! I first thought the brush would be too big when I first opened the tube but I was wrong! Works great for both my upper and lower lashes. I think this is such a dark, pigmented mascara and I am so happy I don't need primer for it! I hope this mascara stays around forever! Love it! Thank you!
Pros: buttery soft, pigmented, long wearing, smooth application, easy to blend
Received a duo in a kit I purchased from Ulta and I couldn't be happier! I didn't know what to expect since I have not tried any of these eyeshadows before, but they have skyrocketed into some of my favorites! They are very pigmented and extremely easy to use. They rival many high end eyeshadows I have tried in the past! I found these so easy to blend and gorgeous on the eyes! Color lasted all day with no fallout whatsoever! Great product!!

What color combination, either 2.0 or 4.0, is best for blue eyes?
It would be nice to have a chart telling you what colors go best with each eye color. It's always hard to decide without professional help, particularly online.
I don't own as many of the 2.0s and 4.0s as I would like yet, but I have blue eyes and find that golds, bronzes, browns and taupes look great with blue eyes! Next on my list is The Top Shelf in 2.0, beautiful gold and brown!
