Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup
Gabster90 3/7/2013 11:46:00 PM
The Good: No breakouts with this foundation No 'heavy' feeling Did not develop a reaction such as itchy skin, dryness The bad: Lack of shade selection :( The ugly: They discontinued the shade I used (tan 340) This evens your skin tone very well without being to heavy I use the MAC 190 foundation brush to apply. I love how Almay updated the bottle with a pump (its more sanitary)This foundation is the best drugstore foundation I have used so far but please Almay, expand your shade selection!
I rate my mascaras based on whether or not they can hold a curl: this one didn't. I always go for waterproof mascaras because they tend to hold curled up lashes better than non/waterproof mascaras (I have poker straight lashes). Plus this mascara flaked a lot. I got this for $4 at rite aid since there was a buy one get on 50% off deal for all neutrogena products.
Brows -Shiseido - Eyebrow & Eyeliner Compact - Light Brown BL3

I buy this in the deep brown. This is my HG of powder eyeliner which I also use for my brows. I always disliked pencil eyeliner since they always runned and smudged on me. I only use liquid eyeliners on my top eyelid cause I think liquid liners look too harsh for the bottom. I use my eyeliner brush to apply on the botton lid. This powder is really pigmented and it doesn't run at all, even if I cry for four straight hours! This product is pricey but it is worth it!
Eye Shadow -Shiseido - silky eye shadow quad - flora and fauna Q3

The only color I like in this quad is the dark foresty green. The rest of the colors are a waste to me. I wish they could sell this in a single eye color to avoid buying the whole quad :(
Loose Powders -Shiseido - The Makeup Enriched Loose Powder
Gabster90 5/24/2012 10:40:00 PM
I didn't think this powder would work since I thought all the shades were too light but it setted my make-up perfectly. Every loose powder that comes with a puff I throw away. The only thing I don't get is the packaging. I am paying a lot for this powder but it comes in a dinky plastic container that could've passed for cheap drugstore powder >_<
I never tried the original mascara base so I'm not going to be hard on this review. I curl my poker straight lashes and I apply this base. Woah, it's a miracle! My lashes did not uncurl! I don't notice any physical difference with the base improving the mascaras I wear. For some reason it makes it easier to remove mascara from my lashes. But what I do notice is the my lashes are much softer and stronger now then when I never used the base. I don't buy a lot of high end items, especially make-up but this primer (or base) is a must buy for me.
Misc Beauty Tools -Shiseido - Pureness Oil Blotting Papers
Gabster90 5/24/2012 10:23:00 PM
These oil blotting papers feel like nothing at all but for the price i'll stick with the clean and clear oil blotting papers.
This product is well pigmented and it is waterproof but my oily eyelids disagree with this eyeliner. By the end of the day my eyeliner is smudged :( I really wanted to like this product but anyone with oily eyelids are better off using liquid eyeliners than using pencils.
I got it in the shade Tan. The powder is nice for touch-ups but I dislike the scent. Maybe I am sensitive to smells but I hate the scent that covergirl uses on all of their face products. Please covergirl get rid of that horrid scent!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black
Gabster90 5/16/2012 11:57:00 PM
Maybe I got a badly batched creme eyeliner but this creme eyeliner was DRY. I had to heat up the creme liner with a match to get any product. I still haven't found a creme eyeliner that matches Merle Norman but I will keep looking!
This is not the best eyelash curler I used. I couldn't find my favorite eyelash curler that was sold in CVS so I bought this instead. Its well fitted for my eyes but it doesn't curl as well as I hoped. I would have to heat up the metal part to get a decent curl (its decent not great :( I forgot the name of the other eyelash curler that is sold in CVS but I won't buy a tweezerman eyelash curler again.
This does keep my eyeshadow in place but there are better eye shadow primers out there.I just use the case as my mirror since its only useful for that.
This product really does last. The only problem I have with the eyeliner is the packaging. Build-up starts forming then its a mess to use this eyeliner. But if you are looking for a good but cheap eyeliner, then this is for you. Its only sold through mark.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

This mascara does provide a falsie effect but it flakes WAY too much. It holds the curl well but the flakiness won't make me buy this again.
Misc Beauty Tools -Tarte - Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler
Gabster90 11/14/2010 12:11:00 AM
This curler did not work for me at all. I had high hopes for this but I hated the way the curler was shaped and it was hard to get a grip on the handles; it would slip away from my fingers!
