I panic bought this when i realised, to my horror, that my clinique was too light for me since a trip abroad. It was the product of the year award this has got in the UK that convinced me to try it, and i was not disappointed. Infact i was really really impressed! Gave me just the effect and coverage I wanted and was tone perfect, i love it. The packaging isnt amazing for clinique, but i suppose its only £9.99 May actually consider this over my clinique in future
I wanted to much to love this, I really really did. It has NO staying power, Hours after appying I had to clean my phone following one quick phone call because it was COVERED. I cannot stress enough how bad the staying power of this is. I have oily T zone but it was coming off my cheeks (totally normal, not oily) for fun! Later that day I used a cleansing wipe and no foundation came off onto it, not a speck The finish was ok, a little orange and I had a fairly light one. Didnt like how it looked on my nose, just didnt look nice. Wont bother buying a full bottle (had samples)
Maybelline never seem to be very good at lengthening mascaras, they always seem to bend at the end of the lashes...But this isnt too bad as lengthening isnt its main thing on me...But its very good for volume, really like it!
I havent actually worn this for very long yet, only to try it a few times, but I love it! The colour is intense, the balm feels gorgeous! Only complaint is that first time I did get the colour everywhere, you have to be careful applying it, I have a very pronounced cupids bow, and I smudged it slightly in there and couldnt remove the tiny offending spot without taking most of it off my top lip, on the whole however, i've loved it!

For the price, this is really good, and I will be rebuying. I like the consistency and it goes on lovely and feels light and refreshing, its a really good base for make up The effects arent brilliant, but it costs £4 so I wasnt expecting mircales, but it exceeded my expectations...Only one complaint, I did get a few spots, and one big one, a few days after I started using this, but no more have come up and the others are healing quickly so it could be because of something else to be fair, so I wont stop using because I think it was just a tiny teething problem if anything at all... Would recommend this because for the price im impressed.
When I tried this, I ended up with sparse looking, meek lashes with little dots on them, which was strange. I wasnt impressed, but will update if I use again and have more success

Brilliant. Bought this a while ago but wasnt keen on the smell so didn't use it much, but when I got sunburn the other day I decided I needed some moisturisation but didnt want to waste lots of my cocoa butter formular, and i'm glad I didnt because this stuff is so much better. It has made a visible difference to the appearance and texture of my skin, and the smell has grown on me too. Will be buying again and again!!
Hmmm....I like the effect it EVENTUALLY gives...But I dont like the applicator, at all...Didnt really give a liner effect either, and it smudged like crazy.
I bought this by accident, didn't realise it was a felt pen liner (don't ask how I didnt clock on)...Now i'm on my third, and ive been converted to the wonders of liquid eyeliner. Goes on well, looks good (FAR better than max factor) lasts ages, good product for a reasonable price!
I really like this mascara, I always end up coming back to it because I know I can trust it. Good volume and actually curls. It wasnt until I used another mascara today that was a little heavier on the lashes that I realised how good the curling on this actually is. Good volume length and curl!
Haven't perfected the application yet so i'm not getting results as dramatic as I think they could be... I hate the brush though, I just dont understand what its all about, and the thick line of product down the middle. If theres such a nack to application they should tell you how...Someone mentioned a video on how to do it properly but i'm not finding one anywhere.
Its a bit gimickey, but I quite liked it, my lashes really did looked fanned out and curled. Was perhaps a tad TOO wet, and I sometimes got quite a bit on my lashes while trying coat another part of the eye because there was alot of product on the bottom of the ball (the top of the wand, bottom of the ball)...Still really liked it though Edit - This seems to be getting a bit clumpy despite me only having it for about a month...Not good...May need to lose a lippie...
I love this perfume, really do!
Really like how this goes on, easy to use, brightens well, nice consistency. Doesnt always cover dark circles perfectly but thats fair enough! Really like it, will buy again!
Edit! Really changed my mind about this...Still a tiny little bit flakey, but now when I wear it my lashes look thicker than they did the first time I used it, very seperated, fluttery, curled and definatly longer
