Mascara -Cover Girl - Fantastic Lash Waterproof / Very Black [DISCONTINUED]

Bleh. This stuff is not so hot. It's sticky and clumps easily. The sticky feeling remains as long as this stuff is on my lashes. It's like having glue on there. It's irritating and annoying. Removal is difficult. A huge glob always comes out on the end of the brush, too. It's hard to apply. Soon as I buy a better waterproof mascara, I'm throwing this junk in the trash. X(
So far I am pleased with this mascara. It doesn't clump, flake, or smear and it leaves my lashes looking long and sexy. There's no trouble removing it when the time comes, either. I wore it all night at the club dancing and sweating, and there were no problems. No irritation. There aren't really any special effects to this; it's a good basic mascara.

Good stuff. Does the job well, does not look cakey, lasted through a night of clubbing. I applied with a brush. I use Translucent because I just want it to set my foundation. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that the compact is kind of thick and clunky. Edit: Oops. About a month after you open this stuff, it takes on the odor of FISH. I will have to throw it away. gross. Will not repurchase.

I wore this to the club last night and it kept my shadow in place well, even with sweating and dancing. It looks really pink in the compact but didn't look funny once it was on. My one complaint is the stupid applicator. It is too small and too bent to be of any use whatsoever. Seriously, it makes like a half circle curve. @___@ I just use my fingers to apply. Or I guess a concealer brush would work.
I wore this to the club last night and it held up very well and looked nice the whole time. As long as it does not break me out it will become my HG. The bottle is generous and the pump is awesome to have. I like the color Ivory for my light olive skin. This foundation does need to be set with powder.

This is nothing special. Just average mascara. It doesn't exactly look fantastic, and you have to watch out for clumping. It's kind of dry and thick. I'm not going to throw it away, but I certainly won't repurchase.
If they only made this in lighter shades I would keep buying it. The problem is that their lightest shade is too dark and pinky for me. The foundation itself is great quality, dries to a powdery finish, good coverage, matte... everything I want except for not being the right color. Sigh!
Good stuff. It's just a tad bit dry, but it has good staying power and excellent true color. Not purply or orangey. I bought undeniably mauve, which is a cool pink on my skin. As an olive skinned person, I can wear it whereas most pinks look just bizarre on me. I'll continue buying this.

This stuff sucks. At first it seems great: Creamy, easy to apply, dark black. However! It does not stay. For one thing, it flakes when it dries, and for another thing, if there is any moisture around your eyes at all, it lifts right up off the skin and deposits in your eyes, making them water even more and ruining your makeup as it irritates you to death. Don't bother with this cheap crap. Get Stila Smudgepots or MAC Fluidline.

This is a waste of money. It settles right into my lines rather than concealing them. There is no lifting action as advertised. It sits in my pores. It feels greasy after one hour. And it gives me the most horrible zits. I'm throwing it away. gross.

I'm disappointed. I shelled out ten bucks for this shampoo. No SLS, blabla, etc. List of ingredients looked good. Boasts conditioning, gentle cleaning, rich lather, blabla. I tried it. Well, it had a weird funky smell, was thin and runny, and barely lathered at all. My hair felt overstripped and damaged after use, not silky and moisturized. I don't recommend this stuff. It will probably end up in a pump dispenser serving as hand soap, and I'll have to add some kind of fragrance oil to get rid of the nasty funk.
I love this. It's a wonderful candy pink that goes on smoothly and lasts all day. No irritation. It's a dramatic look, make no mistake. I pair it with a light pink and then a little of something dark just in the crease for contouring. I will keep on buying this!
These eyeshadows are great! I have loved every last one that I've tried. The colors are smooth, blendable, high in pigment, and long lasting. Also they are very wearable; no ugly colors here. They definitely outperform some of the other top drugstore brands. They don't flake off and get in your eyes or cause any irritation. I'm probably going to keep going until I own one of each!
Oh, me likey! Goes on smoothly, stays put, color stays true. I got Cinnamon and Garnet on a buy one get one free sale at Walgreens. I'll probably run out and buy more. now it is true that it comes off when you eat. But that's normal. Anything that doesn't come off when you eat is going to give you lizard lips.
I think Revlon's nail polish is awesome. It's as good as Orly. The colors are rich, the staying power is good, no streaking. I have several colors and love them all. I will keep buying this!
