Some words of warning... Do not apply the primer if you have a waterproof version of this mascara. You will never get it off without sacrificing some lashes. I was amazed at how difficult this product was to get off my lashes after my day was threw. I took makeup remover of all sorts in hopes to get it off. Advance two days later and guess what.. I still had dark shadows of leftover mascara under my eyes. Three days and i finally got all residue and goop off. The lengthening ability to the product is decent. Nothing extreme or amazing. The packaging is a pain.. It "locks" into place with a gentle motion.. which also leads to being opened in a gentle matter. Not convient for travel. Oh yes and let's talk about the brush.. It's actually really the only feature to this mascara I like. It's a classic mascara brush and wand. Not bendable but certainly workable. It does deliver to much product onto the brush, but just blot the wand on a paper towel and it will remover the unwanted goop. I think there is again way better products out there then to waste my money in re-buying this mascara.
Well for an hour I thought I had found THE mascara for myself. Wrong, By an hour the mascara had flaked off my lashes and wound up on my face. First thing I must Tell you all is the scent this mascara has. It delivers a big punch of roses. It may as well substitute as a perfume, very strong. In the beginning this mascara was beyond anything I could have asked for. It added volume, loads of length. Then.. it was gone -_- The color's are very rich and true to there name. The product is not wet nor dry, its the perfect in-between. With that being said the amount of product that comes off on the brush can be directly applied to your lashes without having to blot the extra amount onto a paper towel. It never delivers to much nor two little. Another aspect from what I am looking for, convience! The packaging has a color blocking theme going on with there Bright coral tube and teal engraving. The brush is a plastic bristled mascara with evenly spaced (but close together) bristles. No clumping involved with the mascara. I will be purchasing this mascara in a waterproof version in hopes to finally end my mascara search. Fingers crossed,
Maybelline has some extreme commercials most do not live up to my high and mighty standards. BUT I have to give a hand to maybelline for this product. This Mascara comes in a purple tube with black writing upon it. It has a spoon brush with odly spaced bristles. I dislike the amount of product it delivers onto the brush. It delivers so much to the point if you were to directly apply it straight from the tube without blotting the brush onto a paper towel, You would have some gooey gunky black lashes. I can not stress this enough. Please blot off excese product onto a paper towel or something! With doing this it will help the brush do it's job by separating and volumizing your lashes without the goop in the way.Plus after applying this I use my Maybelline Full & Soft mascara to define and separate my lashes even more for a cleaner look. This mascara does hold a curl, Volumize, and lengthen! Plus the color pay off is a deep rich black. BUT.. (Isn't there always a but?) This is a non-waterproof mascara. So i cant say how the waterproof version works. This mascara does smudge, no flaking.. But smudging is even worse in my book. After about 4 hours you can start to look like a drug addict with black shadows under your eyes. NO OFFENSE ;)
The packaging is what really caught my eye. The beautiful Lace and durable plastic packaging was my seller. Including the price, only $9.00 for 10 eyeshadows? Hell Yeah! The quality of these shadows are very nice. I do believe you should take into fact Hard Candy was bought out by Walmart SO it is cheaper quality. the lighter shades are a little chalky but the darker ones don't seem to have this problem. As far as pigmentation goes. These are highly pigmented for there price. The color selections are impressive as far as i have seen. They do offer A Blue Pallete, Brown Pallete, Pink Pallete, Purple Pallete, & My favorite The Green Pallete. All with Ten colors in there specific color category ranging from light to dark with some at random. I intend on going back and getting all the palletes! And To all the lovely Ladies and Gentlemen I have included some photos above for you to examine, enjoy
This is one of my very beloved foundations. I keep coming back around to this foundation. It's like that one guy you know is special, you just can't let him go. I first got interested in this foundation by a fellow athlete of mine. Her skin always looks perfect, and yes i'm a tad bit jealous. The coverage for this foundation is beyond astonishing. I have acne, dark spots, acne, patchy skin, acne, and did i mention acne? Yeah, problemed skin.. With this product it covers it all. It shocks me that I can look beautiful with only a tad bit of foundation for up to 6 hours. With that being said the lasting quality is quite decent. Touch ups may be needed after 8-9 hours of wear depending on what your skin type is. With acne usually oily skin is in the combo, am I right? So i thought seeing that this is advertised as a hydrating foundation, my skin would brake out terribly from being overhydrated. THINK AGAIN! Nothing out of the ordinary has happened with my pustulant monsters while using this foundation. Such a relief, for every review i do i always look at the product before hand and examine it. I noticed when i opened my compac that the foundation has soft flexes of sparkles. It wasn't noticable at all on my skin until i actually looked in the product. This is my go to foundation. Its simple easy and perfect for on the go. I will repurchace for a number of reasons

This is my Holy Grail Eyeliner. The packaging is cute, sleak black with a pop off cap. I have had my liner for 7 months now. It has not showed signs of drying up which in some reviews on here have been the main problem of this liner oddly enough. I have green eyes with blue rims and the color this comes in makes them POP. Its a very saturated Black. No shimmer, most certainly not matte, it's finish looks like a satin material on your lid. The application process is simple, quick, and easy. You can do an extremely thin line to a dramatic bold line. List is endless, The drying time is quick but be cautious of rubbing your eyes. It most certainly is not waterproof and can be easily removed with makeup remover or good ol fashioned soap and water. In experiance I learned this liner lasts you through 24hours+... This is my everyday eyeliner. With my curiosity i always look for bigger better things, but im content with this liner. I will be repurchasing!
There is not enough good things i can say about this compac, but there are some bad qualities that should be mentioned. I have incredibly Oily skin. I usually take a shower twice a day and in an hour of taking it my skin will be an oilslick. Its repulsive. This powder/foundation halts all oil for up to 8+ hours! Crazy am I right? So I just pop this baby all over my face and WAM! I feel and look good all day. Keeping the oils at bay, With Oily skin of course acne comes into the picture at some point.. Cystic acne is starting to be an issue in my day to day life. The infections keep progressing and leaving behind some scars and the redness never dissapates. Thank you adolecence... With that being said this powder has made a remarkable difference to my skin. The coverage is breathtaking. No redness.. Some dark spots are visible but only if you get up close an personal. I can not stress how fantastic the coverage is for a powder. The packaging is nothing special, its sturdy, but no where near eye catching. I do use the sponge it comes with. I find it works well and as long as you clean it every other day bacteria should not be a problem. I also want to make a comment that it can be flaky on your skin in some places that are dry. My chin and mouth area are prone to this, but do your makeup like normal put it on and let it manipulate it's self onto your skin and you'll be fine. Now there is an uglier side.. This powder/foundation's first ingredient is Talc. Talc is a mineral that has been linked to cause cancer in some people. BUT Lady's and Gentlemen we all know there probably more cancer causing ingredients in that "healthy" living diet everyone raves about. If i'm gonna die i'm going to look good at my funeral. With That being said I love this Stuff and will be repurchasing.
I do like this mascara... LIKE, I don't LOVE it. Its consistency Is inbetween wet & dry. Perfect for everyone thats tired of flaky mascara and mascara that clumps. This is actually my 2nd tube of this product. I bought the color in brown a year back and currently have the color Very Black and am impressed with the pigmentation in both. The packaging is bland. A classic black/dark navy tube with a gray wand. Speaking of the wand.. This wand is very original, it isn't anything like the falsies flared with there big spoon brush technical effect thingy. Or the Vibrating mascara that everyone seems to eye. BUT IT WORKS, the brush is simple clean and works. This Mascara is very good for a non waterproof mascara. It holds a curl for 7+ hours at the most. The lengthening capability is natural but has a wow factor to it in the slightest. The volumizing effect is a big fat zero. This mascara is worth coming back to for a couple reasons. It can easily be taken off without tugging and ripping out your lashes as it is with most mascaras. [Thats a big plus for me] Does not flake, smudge, or transfer up or below onto your eyelids. Its natural BUT can be glamorous.
One of my favorite scents to wear for all occasions. This is a rich, musky, dark Berrie scent. If Sexy had a scent this would be it. From friends, to my boyfriends mother, everyone i know seems to comment on how good I smell when I wear it. the scent is more of a winter scent. Its very saturated and far from fresh and clean scented. The only thing that irritates me is the scent changes from product to product. An example is.. The body spray/EDT smells so delectable as does the body lotion and Body Butter and Shower gel. But the Body Cream and sometimes a body butter.. smells like Road kill when mixed with my body chemistry. May be just me, but still something to keep in the back of your mind when purchasing. A quick tip, If you want these Bath and Body scents to last longer. take SOME lotion and put it in your hair or on your jeans. Its safe on clothing and as for your hair its not sujested but wont hurt it. HA!
This mascara is hyped up way to much. Yes it is a good mascara, Yes it has some flaws. Lets get started on the packaging. I bought the olympics white tube packaging for the fun of it and thought I would give it a try. Being an athlete I was drawn to it because it was sponsered by the Olympics.. Else wise I never would have boughten it. The brush is Big. I like em big, fat and thick... moving along, The formula is decent. I think that it could hold a curl way longer then 3 hours.. maybe 8? Is that to much to ask for from $10.69 a tube? I think not. When you apply this mascara be cautious it delivers way to much product to your lashes. Take a paper towel and blot the brush after you pull it out of the container. This will take off the goop that will clump up your lashes. By doing this you get a pleasant result. LONG THICK lashes that are very doll like. The Plus to this mascara is, It doesnt flake, smear or, irritate my eyes. My only gripe is the fact it wont hold a curl very long.. Will I ever repurchace this item. The answer is undetermined, I think theres something better out there.
This Eyeliner is wicked, The lasting capability is astonishing. I will Put this on my waterline and it normally wont budge for two hours.. After two hours tho I have to touch up on it a tad. This formula is creamy, easy to apply, and will not tug on your skin. I have the three colors Made of steel, Vibrant Violet, and Bold brown. The colors are intense, the cap on the liner is true to color if you need a guid line. I intend on getting the black liner here soon for a more dramatic pop to my eyeballs. The packaging for the automatic liner is horrid! I can barely get it to twist up, and forget about twisting it down! I can't stress this enough, only roll up the amount of product your going to be using in your application. Cause, its not going back down. It's not just a floop either there all this way. This eyeliner is not only good on your waterline. Experiment be creative, but not to crazy. Just so you know girls... Its not sexy to look like a raccoon. Keep that in mind, stay close to the lashline!
