Eyeliner -MAC - Penultimate Eye Liner - Rapidblack

After the experience I just had while wearing this product, I had to give my opinion. I'm not a liquid eyeliner girl... I've always done pencils (usually the MAC PowerPoint) because I don't have the steadiest hand, and I end up looking like a 2-year-old applied it. I bought the Penultimate because my MAC girl told me I'd have no problem with it... guaranteed. The second time I used it it looked like I'd been using liquid eyeliner my whole life... so easy. I don't use it all the time, probably ten times now, but that may change. So here's today's experience: It's 90 degrees in early-May Alabama, and the AC in my house is broken. I've been sweating all day long, and I just went to the store to pick up some stuff. A downpour came while I was shopping, and I had to run to my car in the middle of a monsoon... after sweating alllll day long. And my eyeliner is still in place. Perfect. I'll definitely buy this stuff again.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black

I'm forever looking for a good mascara: one that sticks around all day, actually shows up on my lashes, and doesn't bug my terribly sensitive eyes. I got this mascara with a gift card (I didn't want to spend the money on it and hate it!), but I'll definitely buy it again. I'm a MAC girl all around, and I carry MAC Zoom Lash mascara in my purse, but I still love this more than any other I've ever tried. It really makes tubes around your lashes! I prefer a one-step mascara because I'm always running late, but you don't have to wait for the primer to dry (according to the package directions), so it's not that big of a deal. And even without using my lash curler, my lashes look so much longer and thicker. It's a little pricey, but it's even better quality than more expensive brands.
LOVE!! I have chronic dry lips, and regular Chap Stick just doesn't do it for me. It's really hard for me to wear lipstick and lipgloss because it just accentuates how dry my lips are. I've been using this for about a week now, and after about two days I noticed a complete difference. Another great thing is it doesn't leave that gross film that a lot of other products do, and the taste and smell aren't too bad. The price isn't terrible either, about a dollar more than Chap Stick. I'll buy this product forever <3
I bought this foundation when it was on sale for 50% off at Walgreens. I haven't really been impressed with a lot of Almay products, but I also have trouble finding foundations that lost all day so I thought I'd give it a shot. This product really did last from the time I put it on until the time I took it off! The only downside to it would be the cost. I'm used to spending about $7 or so on foundation, but since it lasts so long as opposed to most everything else I've tried, it's worth the money. I would most definitely recommend this product!
