Favorite Purchase: Urban Decay Naked Foundation in 2.0 and repurchase of BeautyBlender
I tried Naked when it first came out but was matched to a lighter shade that just didn't look right on me. And I returned it promptly. Plus, I didn't like the application at the time. Now, lets fast forward to me owing beauty blenders, and this foundation in a slightly darker warmer tone is a favorite. It covers well and sits great on my skin. I've worn this foundation and no other since buying it, so hopefully it continues to wear well. I use a hydrating primer type moisturizer underneath, and it holds the foundation for 8-10 hours.
I've purchased the beauty blender about 3 or 4 times already, but I was still happy having shiny pink ones to use with my makeup.
Fails: I made a pretty large MAC order and most of it
is either in my blog sale or in the return bin. I'm unhappy specifically with Prep/Prime Natural Radiance. It felt nice going on but when I removed my makeup my face had several spots. Plus, it make my foundation look cakey(too hydrating maybe?). Also, I purchased LE Vintage Selection Paint Pot but didn't like the coverage on my eyes. I'll stick to MAC eye-shadows, Painterly paint pot and lipsticks from now on.
Any recent faves and fails?
