Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Wear Infinite Quad - Earthscape

Contrary to what the first reviewer said, I think the pigments were just fine. The light peach and the shimmer don't show much, but the cinnamon and the chocolate browns show up wonderfully. I love using a shimmer over my entire eye area, then the cinnamon brown over my lid, with chocolate in the cease... looks great for any kind of look! My absolute favorite eyeshadow compact because they also have shimmer to them, and last forever! A must have. Plus, the packaging is nicer than most drugstore brand eye quads-- my only complaint is that the lid broke off of mine. :(
It went on really well, and I loved the packaging, but it smudged way too easy and I ended up with MAJOR MAJOR racoon eye.
Mascara -Almay - Amazing Lash® Mascara 16-Hour Wear

Smudges definately before 16 hours-- or with any water (crying, sweat, rain) for that matter. It takes several coats to build it up, though. I love the packaging, very sleek. Try L'Oreal Volumious if you're seeking the true waterproof.
Ugh... it smells like air freshner.
Great for my daily moisturizer, works well under make-up. Only problem is it isn't thick enough for extremely dry skin like I sometimes get. NEVER irritates (some lotions sting my sensitive skin) and doesn't make me break out. :)
Smells SO sexy. I want to just jump my boyfriend whenever he wears it-- and a GREAT price! Packaging is very masculine-- he liked it, too.
Not my favorite scent, but my boyfriend loves it. It's true what other reviewers have written-- men love this. I don't think it's unique enough, and it smells better after a few hours-- lighter.

I loved the packaging and the concept for this product, but I hate the actually product. When I get some on my fingers, it is watery and thin-- NOT enough to even cover a little redness. Would not buy again.
The flavor is great, and in Succulent, it is okay for days I want to wear something like a stain. But the container is too small and it's super goopy... ugh.
Crème -mark - Speedway Do Everything Foundation Stick

Great coverage; especially for a big zit, but it's way too small, and it also finishes chalky-- which is what it is supposed to do, but it dries out my skin. :(
This product did make my lips pinker than usual-- and gave them a nice sheen. My top lip, usually thin, did look a bit plumper. The stinging takes a few applications to get used to... but it's addicting. The only downside is the tiny bottle for the big price and the fact that it only stays for about 20 minutes. EDIT: Ended up giving this away to a friend. The burn began to hurt, and I couldn't wear this over other lip color. The shine also was not impressive.
I liked the size and packacking. The color matches my lips a bit too much for my own liking. On a darker note, the actual formula is sticky and thick, making my lips feel gross and plastic. I like the look it gives me, but the smell/taste/consistency is na
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Blackest Black Mascara

Edit: Yes, it is the 'blackest black' but that can also change into the 'blackest black' eye, meaning it smudges very easily...
