This is my holy grail mascara and will repurchase! + Adds volume and length in a way that I haven't seen other mascaras in this price range do. I have tried Clinique in the past, and Rimmel's Scandaleyes is better. + Brush is very dense so it picks up all the lashes. Great for zigzagging, separating and adding length depending on how you hold the brush. - Brush is so big it is impossible not to leave black marks around your eyes. I just accept this and won't use my mascara without having q-tips within reach. - I hate orange so I'm not a fan of the package... but who cares? I tried the waterproof version too, but it's too dry to make the same kind of impact the normal version does. Also I tried the new 'show-off' version in a purple bottle, but that one has a rubber brush and so it has actually no effect at all.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Glam Eyes Professional Liquid Liner

I have been using this product since I was 15 and I am now 23, need I say more? Sometimes I'm led to believe the grass is greener on the other side and I try a different eyeliner from Rimmel or another brand...but none of them are as great as this one! + versatile: you can choose the shape and thickness of the line + durable: I have oily skin, attended sweaty rock concert and spent a summer in humid Asia, and it always stays on. + pigment: black in one go (sometimes two) + easy application once you get the hang of it: I find this is even easier to apply than pencil liners - maximum duration with one bottle, using it almost every day, is one year. By that time it will dry out and the brush will not be so pointy as it once was.
If in doubt between the original False Lash Effect and this Fusion one, go for the original. It works better than this one. Still it's not a bad mascara at all, better than others I've tried in this price range. Just don't look for a real false lash effect, even though that is what Max Factor named this product. I found it enhances your natural eyelashes very well and it does add both volume and a tiny bit of length...but it's not exceptionally impactful.

Have been using for 3/4 weeks, once a day (in the evening, just this with Vichy Tri-Activ afterwards). + My skin is rid of oil and feels clean without being overdry and itchy. Doesn't really make my acne leave (yet), but has changed the 'type' of acne from big and painful to small and less noticeable. + Nice smell + Bottle looks classy - A lot of money - The cap is annoying to open, especially with wet hands

Covers up my bright red acne much better than what I used before - Maybeline Pure Cover Mineral Concealer, which I found actually highlighting my acne. The colour also matches perfectly~ Give it a 4/5 because it does look a little flaky when over-applying. You'd say "then don't put on that much", but than there is still some redness. I don't blame this on the product though; it's probably my technique that is lacking. (BTW, I set the concealer with Bourjous Bio detox perfecting powder)
