Let me start out by saying that, for the most part, I have oily skin. But I also get some dry patches. I liked this product for the most part, but it's just not for my skin type. The price is good. It starts out grey-ish but blends in well. I used my fingers to apply. However, with my combination/oily skin, it was not the right fit. On the dry patches, it made my skin peel. But on my t-zone it got super oily really fast. It evened out my skin tone well and for the most part covered a few big zits. But when I did break out, I'd also need to use some concealer with it. I have acne prone skin and it made me break out with little zits on t-zone, so I only use it for special events until I find a new one. It was a good product, but not for my skin type.
Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Length Fiber Extensions- Waterproof

Okay, so I've been testing out mascaras for awhile now seeing as I have very watery eyes, and this is definitely one of the better ones. I used this awhile back and I still have a tube of it because I liked it so much. It stayed on pretty well, I only had a little bit of mascara in the fine lines under my eyes at the end of the night. No big deal. But what I really liked about this mascara was the length it gave my lashes. If I'd do a few layers of the mascara, my lashes were longer than they'd ever been. My mother immediately noticed a difference. It was pretty amazing. However, after awhile I started using this with another product (lancome xl lash booster) and that's when I had the problem. My lashes started to get in rough shape when I combined the two frequently. I do believe it was the lash booster that was the problem, but just in case I'd keep an eye out for a bit when you first test out this mascara. Also, it could be a bit difficult to wash off, but that, too, may be because of the other product. So I guess I'm just trying to say be careful. Once my lashes heal a bit I'm going to test this mascara by itself again to see if there's a problem. But until then I'm going to lay off it. I'd still use it for nights out or the dramatic effect. No need for falsies here!
Okay, so this mascara has some pros and cons. First off, though, let me tell you that I have very watery eyes and have been searching for a mascara for a long time. Now, at first I liked this product a lot. It comes in a cute tube that is shiny blue/green color. It looks nice and I didn't have any problems with the packaging. It also stays on pretty well. I didn't have tons of mascara under my eyes by the end of the day, which was a nice change. Oh, and the brush is small, which was a nice change from the huge ones that usually come with mascara, though it's a bit flimsy which caused me a little bit of a problem because it would get on my lids. But not a big deal. However, it took forever for the mascara to dry. After applying it, I'd try not to blink for awhile because when I did it would get all over my eyelids, which was super annoying and the main reason I would not buy this mascara again. Also, in pictures it didn't look at that great on my lashes, which kind ruins the point of mascara a little bit. Overall, not great but not terrible either. I only stuck with it till I found a better mascara.
Okay. So I bought this eyeliner in the shade 'Midnight Master.' And though the color turned out fine, the rest of it was just a mess. I've recently been going through eyeliners like crazy trying to find one that stays put with my watery eyes, but this eyeliner just didn't work well at all. For one thing, It smudged like crazy. But the lid had a hard time staying on, the eyeliner stick kept drying out so I'd have to keep breaking off the tip to use it and the lid cracked. To me, this product was not worth the money. It's not expensive, which is a plus, but other than that I couldn't find anything I like about this product. Maybe it's just not right for me, but those are the problems that came up when I used it.
Mascara -New York Color - Showtime Waterproof Volumizing Mascara

Okay, so I just used up a whole tube of this stuff. My eyes water like crazy and it does an alright job of not smudging terribly. I goes on easily, the brush is small so it is easy to apply. As far as mascara goes, it's very cheap price-wise. The tube is a pretty blue color. It's good overall, but it didn't quite give me the oomph I like with my lashes. And it does run a little bit. I'm going to keep looking, but if I don't find something else, I'll come back to this product.
Okay. So first things first, I should say that I've used this product several times. I tried it when it first came out and I recently went back and tried it again, plus there were a couple of times in between. So I have a lot of experience with it. The price is average for department store mascara. The packaging is pretty, but I find that the brush is way too big. It's very annoying. It's difficult to get my small lashes in the corner of my eyes and usually gets on my eyelids or below my bottom lashes at some point during the application nearly everyday. I buy the waterproof stuff, which works pretty well. My eyes water like crazy and this stuff smudges a little bit in the corners of my eyes and also in the fine lines under my eyes. But it's the best waterproof mascara I've come across so far. It doesn't make my lashes look dramatic, it's more of an everyday wear. My main issue with this mascara is that the brush is way too big, which is constantly making me reconsider whether or not I should continue using. However, until I find a better mascara for my eye watering problem, I'm stuck with this one. Oh! And I almost forgot, it is very difficult to get off with my makeup remover. I'm always tempted to go to sleep with it on because of that factor.
I bought two of these for myself. I bought the cherry one and the pink (peach, I think) one. I've used them a couple of days by now. So far, I like them. They're a lip tint so they add a little bit of color to your lips. Subtle enough to wear daily, they make my lips look smooth and nice. The cherry one smells really good, and although I wouldn't say the pink one smells bad, I don't really notice the scent. Which is fine by me. It does add moisture to my lips, but I wouldn't have it replace my blistex. This, from my experience, isn't surprising. I've noticed that lip healing products that also tint your lips don't really seem to focus on the healing chapped lips part. The color stays on my lips really well. If I put my lips to my skin, I don't see an imprint. I bought them for buy one get one half price, so I got a really good deal. Probably about $6 total, which is cheaper than one lipstick (although the two are quite different things). The packaging is cute, but I think it was targeted to a pretty young audience.
First things first, I should let you all know that my eyes water like CRAZY all throughout the day. So for me, finding a good eyeliner is a terrible journey. So a couple of months ago, I was looking for some new eyeliner and came across this. It only costs a buck, the container it is in is small and easy to take in a makeup bag. It's creamy and smooth and it even comes with a makeup brush to apply it. The makeup brush is good, too small for my taste but good for on the go. Everything about this product is perfect except for the fact that it gives me raccoon eyes. But this could just be because my eyes water a lot. I hope that's the case, because if you need eyeliner on your upper lids, then this gets the job done perfectly.
I got this product a few months ago and have been using it ever since. I like it, when applied with the right brush. I don't use the sponge anymore because it makes my skin look dry when I do so. I think it looks good. I have fair skin. Powder tends to catch onto little baby hairs on my face that can't even be seen when I don't wear makeup, but this is easily fixed if I lightly put moisturizer on top of it.
When I began using this product, I loved it. It made my eyelashes look and feel nice. It was cheaper. Pretty packaging. Healthier form of mascara for your lashes. All that. But when I continue using it, it would run under my eyes like crazy. Granted, my eyes water a lot. Also, it would flake some.
