Eye Makeup Remover -Clean & Clear - Oil free Soothing Eye Makeup Remover

This is a long overdue review. I got a full sized sample as a buzz agent with samples of their wipes. I used EVOO to remove mascara before this, but I didn't like that it was so oily. This is not oily at all and it removes all makeup, even waterproof mascara easily! I don't even have to use a large amount of it. I've seen it on store shelves and the price is pretty good too (around $5). I have been using the same bottle for months now and it is only half gone (though I haven't been using makeup regularly now that it's summer). I would buy this again gladly.

The color is very nice, the formula is very nice, the wear is nice. I personally would not pay this much for lipgloss (mines was a gift) but you really do get what you pay for. I love that it is long lasting without being super sticky. The color is a opaque and pretty pinkish beige with gold undertone.

It's 6 for $20 but by itself, it is $7. So it's a pretty good price for these. Pros: - Tastes like candy - Smells yummy - Price - Long lasting Cons: - Super sticky, even after I attempt to wipe it off - Very sheer colors (with the ones I got) I love these and would buy these again anytime.

I like self sharpening. And that's it about this product. It smudges and fades faster than the non-waterproof automatic liner and I thought this was supposed to be waterproof. Edit: It stays better with a brown eyeshadow drawn over it.
I bought one to try out and I love the color. It's like putting on lipbalm but with color. Very nice and creamy and great price (for about $8 at walmart).
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black
p4percut 2/3/2009 1:32:00 AM
I got a free full-sized sample in the mail (not sure when I actually signed up for it) and had heard lots of not-so-good reviews on this due to clumping. When I tried it out, there was no clumping. Put on a thin layer of the base coat and load on the actual mascara and you'll be fine. I found that it did lengthen, but did not give much curl or volume. If they sold a tube of just the base, I would buy it. The actual mascara is kind of grey-ish and not really my thing. Washing it off was easy, no smudges, no make-up remover required. Just water will do.
It holds a curl well and it doesn't smudge. It's easy to remove with EVOO but stays on when my eyes tear up. It doesn't add much volume (despite it's name) but I can layer it on top of another mascara and it'll do much better. Wish I had known about this when I went to humid Asia for vacation.
I've been using this product for years with great results. My mom first bought it for me when I was at the worst of my breakouts. It was extremely drying at first because at that time, I used no nighttime moisturizer. Now I just put a thick layer over a large zit (after moisturizer) and sleep with it overnight to have it shrink significantly by the morning. I wouldn't recommend daily use (much less, 3x per day) on skin that has no acne, even as a preventative measure because it's really drying, just spot treatments do fine. You do have to use it on a zit for a few days until it's completely gone or it'll come right back out.

I absolutely love this product! It's really nice and creamy, but not heavy. It has shimmer that some people like, some don't. I've been using it for three months and my skin has cleared up considerably. I would buy again because it works for me. Edit: after like, 3 years of using it, I found out that this contains both avobenzone and oxinxate, which are active ingredients that destablize each other out and increases aging as opposed to preventing aging. Will discontinue use immediately. ): 5lippies to 1lippe

I needed a simple sharpener that would sharpen both larger and normal sized pencils and could've gotten something similar at the 99c store (right next door anyways). It works well, I don't (and didn't) expect anything else out of it.

It works well, I love the rubber brush and it doesn't fall or anything. I might buy again, but I'm always trying out new stuff.

I bought it because it said that it would help with break outs. It did nothing of the sort and I got dry patches around my eyes! I continued using it to see what would happen, but the dry patches got worse. It does control oil pretty good though. Would not buy again, I might've been allergic to something in it.

I thought I got a shade lighter than my skintone because people have mentioned that it's slightly orange, but I guess I needed to go another shade lighter. I've been using it for a week and no new breakouts so far which is good. I like how the packaging isn't all weird with an attached brush. The brush provided won't do for a face brush because it's small and rough (but it's softer after you wash it). I bought it at Walmart for $8.00 for the foundation, blush, and tiny kabuki brush.

It did curl, but it also clumped a bit. What I like about this mascara is that it has the mica in it that makes it glitter.

I bought this because it was a nice coral colour. I love the color, it goes on well. I will be trying other shades though. The price wasn't horrible. The packaging! It was my first time with such packaging and it's fun. Haha. The brush it comes with I'm not fond of, so I'll be using my own.
