Eyeliner!
I have absurdly sensitive and watery eyes and oily eyelids, so I need incredibly waterproof, long-wearing, pigmented formulas. Even Urban Decay’s liners don’t work for me. I’ll pay a lot for a liner if it really works well.

Foundation/concealer because it is so hard for me to find a match. NW15 is too dark for me by a shade or two. In some formulas, three.

Currently I’m using NARS Sheer Glow foundation in Siberia, but it’s too yellow for me. I’m more cool/neutral. I’m making due with MAC concealer in NW15, but I have to blend the bejeezus out of it. If I can I just try to use the concealer and powder. I use Lorac Powder Foundation in #1 Porcelain for that, but once again I’m not very satisfied.

My skins tends towards dry rather than oily as well, so I have to find things that won’t emphasize dry patches, which MAC unfortunately does.

I’ve heard that NYX’s foundation in the lightest shade surprises quite a few people by being too light, so I think I may try that when I get some money my way. I can’t seem to find many proper reviews on it, though.

What do you use?

I’m willing to spend more on skincare but I have found a DS regime that works great. I tend to splurge on liners since transfer is a major problem for me.

Definately skincare, I love my Dermalogica products, and even though they are more expensive, they last forever!

I like to splurge on eyeshadows and lipsticks. I love MAC lip stuff! I want to get Petticoat Skinfinish, but I called my local MAC store and they won’t be getting any more in – they are sold out. I guess I may have to order from Mac Cosmetics depending on how bad I want it! I also want the Making it easy trio eyeshadow, I love shades of brown!
