HG!!! AI have oily lids so everything I've tried has smudged. This stuff stays put until I wash it off. I have fallen asleep with this on and it was perfect the next morning. It is waterproof and the color is rich. It goes on smoothly and doesn't tug on my lids. It smudges well with my MAC 219 for a smokey look. I love this stuff!!!
I consider this an average mascara. It didn't really make my lashes "big". It was slightly lengthening, darkened a bit. It did smudge a bit as well. I guess I would reach for this when I can't find my everyday mascara but I wouldn't buy it again.
Concealers -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

I have used a ton of concealers. My sleep habits suck so I look like I'm dead when I wake up. I used to use Bobbi Brown but it was to creamy so it creased. I tried Mac studio sculpt and it was so so. The color wasn't light enough and it creased. Coverage was mediocre too. Anyways I thought I'd give this a shot. I am NC40 in foundation and picked this up in fair. Mostly bc the next color was to dark. I prefer a lighter look bc my circles are so dark. This works sooo well! The texture is light and ypou only need a tiny bit. I use it over my Bobbi Brown corrector and it covers my circles 100%! It lasts all day and IF it creases, just press lightly with your finger and you're perfect again. Just remember, a little goes a long way. The first few times I used it, I saw small flecks in the area but it was just product that I didn't blend. This beats alll my high end concealers :)
I had been using MAC satinfinish for awhile but started feeling that I needed more coverage. So I stumbled upon the reviews for this and decided to try it. I am sooo happy I did! I am an NC40 in MAC and Barcelona was the perfect match! I feel it's even better than the MAC shade bc it has a bit less yellow in it. It blends well and gives a natural finish. My skin looks healthy and smooth. I don't look matte or shimmery. Just perfect. At first, I felt it settled into lines but I then realized I applied to much. I just use my Sephora #55 airbrush brush and stipple it on then buff with the MAC 180. The foundation applies smoothly. The price is higher than what I am used to but I will gladly shell it out for this. My only gripe, no pump! Edit: I found a pump yay! I asked at sephora if they had an extra and they did!! Go ahead and ask, you never know! Edit again: Color selection isn't that great. I'm NC40 and as I tan, Barcelona is too light and the next color is to orange.
SO I got this at Walgreens bc it was on 'last chance'. Color barely showed up on me and smelled like pure vomit. Not sexy. Went back in a heartbeat!!
SO I got this at Walgreens bc it was on 'last chance'. Color is just like babied laquer, at least on me. Texture was nice but smelled like VOMIT! Back it went. The smell was just to disgusting for me!
SO I got this at Walgreens bc it was on 'last chance'. The color is BEAUTIFUL! It looks like a pastel pink but semi sheer. The base color is a light pink and it has darker pink glitter in it. It makes my lips smooth and luscious, lol. The only thing I dislike is the smell. I bought three colors. Two smelled like vomit...seriously. I took those back. This one was passable. I think they were going for a orange candy scent but missed the mark. I would repurchase tho, bc the color is super sexy!
My HG mascara is super HTF now, so I am on a quest to find my HG so I am trying out 5 new mascaras a week until I find it. This was good as a daily mascara. Makes them look fuller and natural. But I am after a more dramatic look so this didnt do it for me. But I can see why it has good reviews. If you want a mascara that will fill out the base of your lashes and make them look natural, this is your pick! Inexpensive too!
My HG mascara is super HTF now, so I am on a quest to find my HG so I am trying out 5 new mascaras a week until I find it. I wouldn't repurchase. It was clumpy and hard to work with. Didnt lengthen or volumize.
My HG mascara is super HTF now, so I am on a quest to find my HG so I am trying out 5 new mascaras a week until I find it. This was in my first batch and it was so so. The wand was alright but the formula didnt do much. It didnt plump. It darkened but it seemed to make my lashes clump up. So this was a no go for me.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #55

I've been using the 187 for foundation but was never truly happy with it. I tried te 190 but it was more trouble than it was worth. So after reading reviews, I figured I'd give this a shot. At $35 it's not super expensive (tho not cheap) and it's soooo soft. The stupid packaging tho, took forever to rip off bc the perferation kept tearing to the side. Anyways, I pumped some foundation on the back of my hand and dipped the brush in. I stippled and buffed and my skin looked FLAWLESS. I mean it was amazing! I seriously couldn't believe the difference. I truly recommend this, especially now that sephora is having the F&F sale!
Mascara -Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper [DISCONTINUED]

I am on my second tube. This is just as good as dior show if not better! The brush truly plumps my lashes and makes them longer. I've been asked if I am wearing false lashes. The only down side is that extreme blackout is the hardest color to find and the price is a bit high for a drugstore mascara. But I will keep repurchasing!
LOVE THIS! The color is a smokey black with copper flecks and multi colored sparkles. It is truly fabulous. Applies evenly and looks great! Good for hands and toes. I've gotten tons of compliments on this. I highly suggest purchasing a bottle!
The coverage is fabulous but the finish is pretty awful. It dries to a cakey matte and it makes my pores look huge. My skin aged 10 years with this on. It just didn't work for me. I tried to use it 5 different ways and nothing.
I LOVE this color. It is a true pastel pink that looks great with my complexion (NC40). My only gripe is that it is super streaky. I have to apply 3 thick coats to get even color which takes forever to dry. Other than that, I love it. Will def. repurchase when I finish the bottle.
