In Your Opinion...

I am wanting to try out new makeup. I usually use the NYC/Wet n' Wild eyeliner, the CoverGirl Clean Pressed powder, Falsies mascara, and some unmarked Ulta blush. I am starting to get bored with the same old look and the same old products which to me, don't seem to be working anymore. What do you all think I should use? I love the natural look for the foundation but wild sexy eyes here and there. I am just not sure what I should try/consider getting.

I use WalMart/Target & Ulta. So if the products you use are there, that would be even better :)

If you are looking for inexpensive NYX is great.  You can get it at Ulta.  They have a ton of eyeshadow colors and they are very pigmented.  Quite a few of them are dupes for MAC shadows.  I also like their blushes, lipsticks, lip glosses and eyeliners.  Utla normally has them on sale too which is great.  Urban Decay also makes some great eyeshadows too.  Lots of fun colors and great pigmentation.   Are you using eye primer?  Using that will make shadow stay on longer and makes is more vibrant.

Hard candy from Walmart has very pretty highlighters and milani at any drugstore has pretty blushes. Revlon lip butters are nice for low maintenance looks.

 You could also try ELF in Target ... very inexpensive.

I also like Loreal HIP shadows.
