This was the first mascara I ever used and I have to admit it was very easy to use. It had a very natural feeling to it, but not like I put it on and it looked like I didn't. I ended up purchasing it again a while ago after using my friend's (I know, but I'm pretty sure she didn't have any eye diseases) and I fell in love all over again. I wear this school and people compliment my eyelashes all the time! :)
This product smelled so good it was hard to resist buying it. Overall it left my nice soft hair really dry and tangled feeling. But I guess it smelled good :\
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL Pro Volume Microfiber Mascara
Ellikun 7/30/2012 6:09:00 PM
Bought this hoping for a nice volumized look and I've always wanted to try a primer. First off, the primer was not thick enough and didn't even come off on my lashes. The regular mascara was less than disappointing. It clumped and stuck my lashes together. I was excited to try this but it was a real disappointment :(
I bought this yesterday in waterproof and tried it for the first time today. To start off, this mascara is definitely NOT a volumizing mascara in my opinion, which sucks. This mascara is a great lengthening one, but doesn't do much for volume and definition. It starts off well, but by the end of the day it look messy and clumpy :(
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

This is a great mascara for natural looking lashes. It gives pretty good volume and length, but not as much as I expected. The new gel formula is nothing special really, but it did stay true to its promise of no more brittle, hard lashes. It was really soft and had no crunchy/brittle feeling. I was actually rushed into buying this because I was in the store wanting to buy it, and I had to make a quick decision whether to buy it or not and I had to pick quick or else I would've missed my ride. I was definitaly disappointed since it was $10. If you like natural, soft, lengthed, minimally volumized lashes, this one is pretty good :) but Full n Soft is a better pick for soft and natural eyelashes.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint
Ellikun 5/20/2012 3:28:00 PM
Pros: minty taste leaves my lips with a sensational cool that feels really good. You don't have to wind up the lip balm like in a stick. Really smooth and helps lips really well. Cons: the sphere shape is hard to put in your pocket and rolls away if you drop it. Not really a con haha but it's so addicting to keep on re applying!! Haha I really like this product
Got this a while ago on a trip after I heard it was good Pros: Good thickening I guess Cons: WAAAAY too much product comes out. I have to wipe and wipe and wipe it off on the tube and by the time I can actually be able to use it, my eyelashes have already uncurled, seriously. Clumpy I had to brush through them numerous times and still doesn't separate very well. This product is really overrated. Really. Don't buy it, I'll stick to full n soft.
Pros: Gentle, soft wipes that remove really nicely. Smells really good and hydrates and makes eye area soft Cons: only con is that I have to rub pretty hard to get the makeup off
Cleansers -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths
Ellikun 5/19/2012 2:15:00 AM
I got this on sale at Ross and it turned out to be a pretty good deal Pros: Gets off makeup very gently, soft wipes that work well Cons: Stings skin, especially around eyes, pretty badly. It hurts but the wipes still works pretty well so I was kind of sad about it. Also, it's pretty oily and I have to use a cotton ball to wipe off the excess afterwards. This was a good deal but I definitely prefer Neutrogena Makeup Wipes.
Eye Makeup Remover -Almay - Non-Oily Eye Makeup Remover Pads
Ellikun 5/18/2012 5:38:00 PM
I decided to get this product because I read somewhere online that is was really great. My mistake. Pros: Comes with a lot of pads so you don't have to buy constantly. Cons: Feels over the top oily. No oily makeup remover I've used have ever felt this gross. The liquid would drip down my cheek and it took extra scrubbing to get the nasty feeling off my face and hands. IT MADE MY EYELASHES THIN AND FALL OUT. Before I started using this I had thick long luscious lashes. I was as gentle as possible and they still fell out. 6-8 lashes each day on the pad. And the lashes never grew back. Please do not waste your money on this, you will regret it.
I had gotten a gift card To sephora and I was thinking of buying a nice mascara with it. I heard this mascara was great so I decided to get it. I tried it and found that it was incredibly flaky and clumpy. I was disappointed because it was a bit expensive and really overrated. Pros: nice wand, the addition at the end made it east to get stubborn lashes. Cons: F-L-A-K-Y. Clumpyyy really wet and dries slowly You really don't need to spend the extra cash on this, L'Oreal voluminous carbon black does the trick.
When me and my sis started wearing makeup this the first thing my mom bought for us. Probably because it was cheap and easy to use, but for more experienced users this is crap. All the things that mascara can do wrong, this one does. I think it makes my lashes shrivel up and look gross. It clumps like no other and my lashes get stuck together even when a use a lash brush. If you're a beginner looking for cheap easy mascara this is for you. But if you want mascara that actually works you probably want to go for something like full n soft.
I bought this along with carbon black voluminous mascara a few weeks ago. Pros and cons. Pros: nice wand idea, good for separating. light formula doesn't weigh down lashes. Cons: no volume once so ever. Clumps easily. This mascara just gave me the meh feeling but it works nicely in a combo with other mascaras. If you want great separated lashes that also give volume, stick with one by one by Maybelline :)
I got this recently in peach kiss and here are the pros and cons Pros: smells great! Even though its not edible it tastes good also ;). Isn't sticky feeling. Feels a little like gloss but not sticky and gross. Cons: way overrated. Even though I gave this a 3, it's not all that great. It's good for its smell and that's about it. It doesn't make them puffy at all. Drys the hell out my lips, it's more of a lipstick than lip balm. I have to constantly re-apply so my lips don't hurt :( I really did like this because it smells wonderful, but if you're buying it because all your friend have it, just stick to Burt's bee, it's better.
