Did absolutely nothing! Hopeless! It looks and feels as though I've got a thick layer of lard on my lips!
Mascara -BeneFit Cosmetics - BADgal Waterproof Mascara

I really think there was just too much hype about this mascara. The formula was just soo sticky that it took forever to dry, and when it did dry, I could not curl my lashes because it was rock hard! It smelt really bad as well, and the brush was just too big. It caused too much clumping. Honestly drugstore brand would off worked much better then this. Would I buy it again? Never.
I am completely in love with this product!!! Its hold my foundation together suprisingly for a very long time so. It applied on very smoothly. At first when I first used it, I thought it to be felt a bit dry, and I didnt think it would work that great. The only con i would say for this product is the awful smell. It sort of smells of very strong caramel. Would I purchase this product again? Absolutely!
Liquid -Almay - Almay Truly Lasting Color longwear makeup

This was one of my first liquid foundation ever. Almay is a sister company of Revlon, therefore, the quality I was expecting was a lot higher then what Almay provided. True this foundation did last all day, provided that you accompany it with a good primer! I remember one time I used this foundation, I had a blemish on my face and the foundation just accentuated on the blemish like crazy. So I do not recommend this to people who have acne or breakouts. The coverage that this foundation gave was light to medium. which is ok on a work day. The formulation is definitely thick and sticky, application with a sponge is probably what made it work for me. Does not set on its own, so you definitely need to set it with some sort of powder. The shade selection for Almay foundations are extremely poor. I got mine in the shade Naked and it was a little too light, if I had gone one shade darker, it will be too dark. The shade is generally my beef with drugstore cosmetic, they have limited shades.
Tinted Moisturizer -Napoleon Perdis - NP Set Memory Foundation

I brought this a while ago when I first started getting fancy with cosmetics and anything vain. I dont know if it's just me, or if there is anyone or handfull of people out there who feels Napoleon Perdis is a joke. This tinted moisturiser was like rubbish in a tube. No covergae and non durable. It is quiet expensive as well, despite claiming to be a more affordable line from Napoleon Perdis.
