In my most recent make up order, I included some bronzers - for the face & body.  I do love Laura Geller's Baked Body Frosting bronzer for my face & neck.  Included was a powder puff but I use a brush.  It gives a nice color without going orange.
Since I had 20% off my total purchase, I went ahead and ordered a back-up - I still want to look good during the Apocalypse!
I also like to keep spray-on bronzer on hand and so tried this:
It has some SPF and gives color instantly without being oily.
This pic shows 2 applications on my arm - very easy to build the color you want.

Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara by Urban Decay is not strong enough for me.  I did not get the length and volume that I want.  It did slowly wear off without irritating my eyes but I will not re-purchase this.

Someone mentioned they liked Ulta's Rose Gold Natural Eyeshadow Palette which I have had for a while and use occasionally.  The colors are:
 Champagne: light golden tan
Pink: light pink shimmer
Hopeless Romantic: medium mauve with silver shimmer
Chandelier: medium brown with golden shimmer
Luxe: deep reddish brown with pink shimmer
Dahlia: deep plum with pink glitter
Prosecco: light cream matte
Bubbles: light pink matte
Breathless: medium mauve matte
Dessert: deep cool brown matte
Sweetheart: deep rich reddish brown matte
Orchid: deep violet matte
I enjoy this color palette - it does have a little dust but it goes on smoothly and feels soft.  At this price point (goes on sale frequently) if I drop this I won't swear!

I did not know dumpster diving for cosmetics was a thing!!!  Just writing this gives me the creepy-crawlies and even more so when I saw the news report!  There is nothing I want that badly.  The sad part is that they are selling items and probably not disclosing where the products came from.  This would explain how high end products are on auction sites selling below wholesale.  I only purchase items from stores with good return policies.  Please be careful!
