Styling Products -Garnier - FRUCTIS Sleek and Shine - Leave-in Conditioning Cream

This product is actually really good. I have medium-thick curly hair and I like to apply this when my hair is still a bit damp. It moisturizes and controls my frizz without making my hair greasy. It has been a life-saver in these drying winter months. I like the packaging since you can control the amount of product you want. If you are looking for a good leave-in conditioner and you are on a budget this is a great product to look into since you can generally find it for under 5$ and you get 300ml of product. I will not be repurchasing for the simple reason that I would like to try other leave-in conditioners.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

let me start by saying that I do love this primer. It makes my eyeshadow stay put with no creasing from the moment I put it on at 6am until I take it off at 8pm. It really is amazing at getting your eyeshadow to stay put. Yet, I do have a problem with this product. I have to be very exact with where I apply this product because it tends to create dry patches on my lids and this can make me look like I have some skin disease so I have to be careful about where I apply it. The packaging is also a problem but I simply de-potted my primer. I don't think I will be buying this product again since I think I will try other primers and I constantly find myself with sample sizes of UDPP and I must say that once you depot these, they last forever.
I really love fluidlines.They go on very easily and quickly, they set quickly and once they set they will not budge even if you wear them for 26 hours straight. My only problem with this particular fluidline is that it is not quite as pigmented as other fluidlines. This problem is also present in Dark Diversion. Yet, this product does still offer good pigmentation and it is a great colour!
I really like this color and I'm a big fan of the fluidlines. They are creamy, easy to apply and last all day long without budging. My only peeve with this is that it is not quite as pigmented as other fluidlines I've tried. it is still very pigmented but not as much as I was expecting. Overall i really do like this product.
This product was an absolute dud for me. I own a few other fluidlines and have never had any problems with them drying out. I stored this one in the same way I do my other ones and I made sure the cap was tightly screwed on after every use. Yet, this dried out completely within the first month. The color is absolutely gorgeous but this was really an absolute waste of money for me.
I really love this color and I love that the sparkle actually shows up on your eyelid. This eyeliner applies fairly easily but not quite as easily as blacktrack. It seems to be more solid and less liquidy than blacktrack. That is the only problem I can find with this product but I don't consider a major flaw.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

I absolutely love this gel liner! It goes on so easily and sets quickly and stays on all day long. I can wear this for 16 hours straight and it will not budge. I also love the packaging. It's sleek and classy and I have a soft side for glass jars ;) I know some people have problems with this product drying out. I have had mine for over a year and it has not changed in consistency at all.
I absolutely love this blush. It is highly pigmented and adds such a gorgeous flush to my fair skin. It blends well into the skin and is very easy to apply. You can go overboard because of the pigmentation as with any NARS blush so be sure to use a light hand when applying this!
Eyeliner -Revlon - ColorStay eyeliner in Black Brown

This eyeliner is great for everyday use. The pigmentation is alright. This eyeliner really does stay put all day which is a big plus for me. I like that it is a twist up but i hate the sharpener that comes with it. It just doesn't work! I like the rest of the tube since it is really nice and sleek. I probably will not be repurchasing since I have found brown eyeliners that I prefer.
This mascara did not lengthen,define, volumize or darken my lashes. Basically it did nothing and for the steep price tag it is just not worth it. I really do enjoy tarte products but their mascaras just never seem to work for me.
Mascara -Tarte - Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara

Now dont get me wrong this product is fine but it isn't for me. When I buy mascara I'm looking for length, volume, definition and a good pigmentation. Now I know that's a lot to ask. This mascara, for me, only defines my lashes and makes them slightly darker. It's great to use if you are looking to do a very natural makeup look but if you like your lashes to have a little more ummph this is not for you. I do use this on days where I barely wear any makeup and just want to throw on some mascara but otherwise I never use it because it just doesn't cut it for me. This is great if you are just looking for a natural looking mascara for everyday daytime use.

Mascara -Make Up For Ever - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara

I really do enjoy this mascara. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes and makes them really nice and black without looking glossy. Sadly this mascara does not last in the tube. It dries out fairly quickly and it loses the effect it originally had when fresh and becomes quite clumpy. It is an amazing mascara but I am just not willing to buy it more often than other mascaras to get the desired effect especially with the steep price tag.
I love the brush on this mascara and I love how wet it is. I thought because of these two factors that I would absolutely love this product. Sadly, it simply doesn't cut it for me. It just clumps up on my lashes no matter how I try to apply it and o matter how slowly I try to apply it. I was hoping this would be a great mascara but sadly I was greatly disappointed. The only way I was able to make this work for me was by layering it over Makeupforever's smoky lash. Yet, this is far too much work for somebody who is looking for an all in one mascara. I will not be repurchasing this.
I really enjoy this concealer! I was looking for a good concealer for concealing acne and acne scarring since I have quite a lot of problems with that and have been looking for a product to conceal this problem for quite sometime. This is by far the best concealer I have found to this date for that purpose. It isn't as creamy as other concealers and so I like to apply it with my clean fingers since it helps warm up the product and makes it easier to apply. I then use a regular concealer brush to blend the edges. I must say that if you are looking for a concealer for undereyes this is not the product you should go for. It doesn't cut it for that purpose.
