My mom got this as a sample, and didn't like it, so I decided to try it. At first, it was only for an occasion that required me to stray from my usual browns and go with black mascara. My coloring is really light, but I've heard that black eye makeup looks good with green eyes. That's very true. The color is nice and intense, but the formula itself is light enough so that it's not a WHOA, LOOK mascara. It gives me plenty of length, but not quite as much volume as I'd like. If it wasn't super expensive, I'd definitely buy it again.
I bought this in anticipation of using it in a play, purely for stage makeup. I bought it in Black Brown and in waterproof, because I could only find it in waterproof. It did wonders for my lashes while I was wearing it. Thicker and longer. I haven't tried actual false eyelashes yet, but I think that they would do much more than this mascara does. Because it was waterproof, it was nearly impossible to get off. I still had smudges of it three days after the play. Overall, it was good for what I bought it for, but I'm definitely not going to be wearing it every day.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby for Green Eyes

I don't know why everyone's hating on this mascara. It's fantastic! As advertised, I've never gotten a single clump with the brush(I've been using this daily for about a month now). I wouldn't say that it makes my eyes look greener, but it still does plenty for my eyelashes. With two coats, my lashes look longer, darker, and thicker, while still looking natural(which is a bonus). Yes, it doesn't do exactly what the package says, but I'm still pretty happy with it. I'd totally buy it again.
Mascara -Bare Escentuals - Flawless Definition mascara

I have really tricky eyelashes. Since my skin is light, most black mascaras look really unnatural. Also, I think my eyelashes are long enough, and most mascara I've tried just adds length, not volume. This mascara looks really natural with good definition, and the black looks almost brown, which is a good thing in my opinion. I would love to buy it again.
This is definitely my favorite lipgloss. It's a little bit sticky, but I don't mind because it lasts a really long time. The color is perfect and subtle, and it has the the right about of shine to it. It also has a pleasant cooling effect, which is wonderful for the summer.
Mascara -Almay - Intense i-color Mascara Bring Out the Green, Emerald Green

I didn't like this at all. I bought it in a purple color, and was disappointed. It hardly did anything for my eyes, and it was impossible to get my eyelashes even because of the large brush. It also made my lashes way too long to look natural, and the color looked more black than anything. In addition to that, my eyes were stinging about half an hour after I put it on.
Eye Shadow -Almay - Almay Intense i-Color Eye Shadow Play Up Trio for Greens

I love the way that this shadow looks. It's simple and natural-looking, which is very important. Most shadows to bring out/play up green eyes have been green, and frankly, green shadows just make my eyes look hazel. The colors in this set play up the green in my eyes as well as the gold undertones. Since I'm not a huge makeup wearer, I'm not sure if I would ever get a chance to buy it again, but if I did use it up, I would buy it again.
