I'm a bit dissapointed with this product. I have combinated skin and by the end of the day my T-zone got shiny. Besides it broke me out. Because of the packaging couldn't take it with me in my bag.

I like this product. It brightens up undereye area really well. I apply it with concealer brush. Usually don't have to touch up during the day. I'm not sure if it's gonna work for darker skin tone but for fair skin in me opinion it's just fine.
Eyeliner -Bourjois - Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner Bleu Neon

Bourjois contour clubbing eyeliners are one of my favourite make up products, i use them all the time! They are very smooth, pigmented, stay for a long time. Perfect for smokey eyes. As for me 46 bleu neon is a bit bright for day time sometimes. I use 42 grey tecktonik more often. Especially instead of black because it looks softer. Defenetly recommened it for every one.
Lipstick -Laura Mercier - Stickgloss in Brown Sugar

Nice nude lip color that I wear with dramatic eye make up or " nude face" make up. I haven't met such color before. In my opinion it's medium brown with pink undertone, so I like to use a pink lipgloss above. I don't like the smell though.
I was looking for ages for the soft pink colour and when i finally found that one (109 rosy dream) i thought it was the right on colour. After couple of weeks of using it I can say that Colour: Soft gentle pink with a bit shimmer but not too much. It's defenetly not matt. Smell: Can't say for sure, bubble gum or smth. thank's god doesn't stay on lips for a long time))). Package: Huge,you will get so much of this product And the most interesting....Aplication: your lips defenetly should be well hydrated . Not for using on dry lips or it will look cakey. I prefer using above lip balm. Sometimes I use lip pencil below but any way have to reapply in couple hours. So... I like the colour very much it was the best that i found but I can't say that I like the texture very much. Will keep looking for my perfect pink lipstick
I'm so much suirprised with this mascara!! Didn't expect it to be so great!! Application: It does what it promises - volume. My eyelashes look so thick. Doesn't vanish during the day ( or night - in case you go out). I 've never had problem of clumps or smudging. Brush is pretty big but I like it. Think it just helps to apply mascara easier and faster. Package:It's bright yellow- which is really great - easy to find in make up case, in depth of the bag if you take it with you. Price: usual price for a drugstore product.

This is my first gel eyeliner and absolutely like it! It's very easy to apply although i don't have much experiense of using gel eyeliner. Colour: I have this eyeliner in 01 black. It looks on the eyes just like it looks in the package -true black. How I use it: goes well both ways: as thin line for neutral day-time make up and as thick bridget bardo-style cat eye make up))). Usually I apple it with MAC angled brush (263 - bigger one or 208 - smaller one, haven't use brush that goes with this liner just because for me it's comfortabler to use MAC brushes - I'm used to them) And any black eyeshadow above - just to fix it a bit better.I think it's important to mention that I use primer. After all of this it stays forever!!... well, at least - one night out))) Package: pretty nice, doesn' get broken in my big and heavy bag. So, for now, after using it about a month - absolutely love it. Very possible will buy again

I like these cream. I bought it in both versions - day and night. Pros:It's very good for my combinated skin with very oily T-zon. The best thing for me - it gives slight whitening effect on my fair skin. Almost all redness on my face has disappeared!!! I was looking for foundation with at least medium coverage but now I feel like I don't need it anymore. Smell is great - smth like jasmine. Texture isn't sticky. Cons: It's a little bit expensive
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof
IamAleks 8/13/2010 4:05:00 AM
This mascara is a really good waterproof mascara. This summer I bought it specially for hollidays on the beach and I didn't have any problems like smudging, clumps or i-don't-know-what-else))) and plus I wear contact lenses! I also like the colour and the volume that it gives to my lashes. After 2 coats my lashes almost touche eye brows. It looks like you have naturally long ultra black eye lashes. I have to use make-up remover because i can't wash it away with water but I guess it's about all waterproof mascaras.
Colour: As for me, this lip gloss makes my own lip colour more intensive but still looks naturel! So, i think it's good for pink-red pigmented lips. Smell: Smells like berries! Possibly some people don't like it because it's rather intensive but doesn't irritate me at all. My tube has lasted for a long time(don't remember for sure but i think for over 6(!) months). I like it.!!

i have the eyeshadow in Les vertes colour(green). it is perfect for my eyes! I would recommend for all greeneyed ladies))). I like the texture of eyeshadow but i wouldn't advise to apply it with brush that goes with it/ I use MAC 272 eyeshadow brush. and yes sometimes it's problem to open this package but whatever I LIKE IT!
this mascara was fine just for the first...em,1.5- 2 month/ I don't know what happened then! first it gave my lashes good length but then after applying they were heavy(I mean i really FELT weight of my lases).
I like this mascara but i bought it in brown colour, it's difficult for me to find mascara with right colour(I'm pale and many mascaras give me a little bit overdone look) but this one is perfect and it looks so naturel! Maybe it doesn't give my lashes super volume and super length but i find this mascara good for everyday look/ and no clumps!!
This mascara is really nice...in case you get used to the brush! If you do this mascara will make your lashes look really good
