(More 4.5 then a 4) This is the first masacara that has actually stayed on my lashes all day without coming off even a little bit. I've re-purchased it several times already. It makes gives my lashes volume and stays on forever. It really does make my lashes look close to false lashes. However, I don't give this a 5 only because of a few fixable, but quite annoying factors. If you don't apply it right, it can appear chunky and just not attractive, so you have to really get the hang of using the brush and formula properly, at least I do. It also can make your lashes real long, but no volume at all if you don't apply it right, which can sometimes be a pain. Also, I noticed when I (but it's probably just due to my eyeshape) apply eye liner, you can hardly notice that I have long lashes with the masacara unless you get up real close and personal, maybe not even. I have stopped using liner though for a while now for a change though, and you can definitely see a dramatic difference with your lashes if it's just the masacara that you put on your eyes. So I just have to be careful otherwise I can make my lashes look really bad and uncomfortable as well. Overal though I really love this mascara, and it's really hard for me to find a good masacra that suits my needs, so this one definitely is real close to perfect. I wouldn't mind the price going down a little bit, however on a good day you can usually find a good sale price with Maybellines masacara's, so it works out in the end anyway.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

I'm probably giving this a better review than maybe it deserves as it is my first BB cream, however I was actually surprised how much I do like this product. I bought it while waiting for my Korean BB creams to come in the mail, and plus it was on a small sale price. I was looking for more coverage than it does give (because, at least for me, this gives very minimal coverage) but I was still quite impressed. I wouldn't call this a BB cream though (my review is more focused on a tinted mosturizer). My skin tends to break out with a lot of things, but this didn't break me out and I really like using it as a mosturizer instead of a actually, well, mosturizer if that makes sense. I got the light-medium colour even though I was thinking light would be better, but it blends very well into the skin and feels very nice on too. The packaging is cute as well. I wouldn't recommend this to oily skin types though, because after a while it does make my skin look sort of oily. I don't mind this because I have dull looking skin in the first place. I don't think it lasts very long (i have not tried setting with a powder yet though), but as a replacement for mosturizer (since I couldn't find one that worked for me) this works fantastic and on top of it, makes my complexion look a little better too.
