The product goes on quite smoothly thanks the roller ball. All you need to do is pat it gently to blend. My undereye circles are dark so I use this as a base underneath foundation during the weekdays. If I am more well rested or I'm on the run I can wear this alone with no foundation. You can also use this to cover light blemishes or to tone down redness. Its a very light formula that doesn't settle in creases, or pill with too much handling or in contact with other cosmetics. I bought this product almost 6 months ago and have used it almost everyday since then and there is still a lot in the applicator. So it does last a long time and doesn't change in consistency over time.
Its a great product that smells great and does a good job as a exfoliater. If you have sensitive skin (like me) use this product once a week and don't rub too hard. I find if I use the product everyday or every other day my skin gets prone to breakouts. So go easy when you cleanse with the scrub.

I'm on my third tube. Its my go to gloss if I want a bit of colour or need to hydrate my lips on top of my lipstick. I hope they never discontinue the line, its my favourite lip gloss.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Smoking Eyes 4 Palette (Smoke Signals)

I'm not a real fan of the packaging as I find it a bit garish, but I do love the eyeshadow. The colours are varied in the palette and I love how I can mix and match all of the colours. It is definitely a repeat buy and it worth the money. The mill of the powder is really fine so you don't need a lot to get the right look. I like the two darkest shades as eye liners. Also, the lighter gray and brown shades are perfect for everyday use.
This is my favourite facial cleanser of all time, it removes makeup and dirt in one step. It has also cleared up my skin and I stopped having breakouts. My skin feels clean and not dry or oily after I use it.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I have had a lot of problems with keeping my eye shadow in place. I usually apply and its gone in a couple of hours. Based on the reviews here, I decided to get it. I have been using it for one month now and I can honestly say that the stuff works. Asian eyes are the hardest ones to apply eye shadow to because of the crease, but if you use enough of the product and allow it to dry before you apply the shadow it will stay on all day. For the girls who have problems removing their eye shadow after the primer potion, try Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser. This face soap removes every last bit of makeup for me.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Glam Shine Holographic - Clear

I love this gloss. Its perfect, and not sticky at all. I have one in my purse, my desk at work, and in the car.
At first I was very intimidated by the bottle it looks like a lot of sparkle. But, after you apply you realize that you get a nice, pink, plum, shiney look. I love it, but it wears off fast. Its very moisturizing and its one of those purchases that I would make if it is on sale.
I was looking for a waterproof mascara and this was the only one left on the shelf. Since I was in a rush I purchased it. I have to say that this mascara is one of the best ones that I have tried. I have to curl my lashes with a curler and other mascaras have straightened my lashes after I apply. But, this mascara got at all my lashes and did not undo my curl. It gave my eyes a dramatic look without any clumps. Would definitely re-purchase.
The sparkly-flecks are too large and fall all over the place. The mill of the powder is not that fine so it makes this product very easy to overdo. I definitely would rather pay more for better quality eyeshadow or less for drugstore stuff.
I was looking for a combination eyeliner and brow pencil, I hate the crayon-like ones because they look so fake. But, this pencil was easy to apply (it went on so smoothly) and its super easy to blend. There's no need to spend an arm and a leg for a black eyeliner/brow pencil. The lead in the pencil is strong and doesn't break or become brittle. Its a perfect pencil. Will definitely repurchase.

It covers up okay, but it dries up quickly and looks chalky and flaky. Would definitely not purchase again.
I tried some on in the store. It smelled good in the bottle, but it just smelled nasty on me and my mother. I guess it doesn't work with our body oils.
I love this perfume. I smelled some other by D&G and did not like them as much as this one. Its light, fruity, and has a few water notes in it. Its just right for going work. I like the fact that its not overpowering. However, the lid for the bottle is too loose. I end up putting an elastic band around it when I travel so it won't spill in my make-up case. Definitely will repurchase, but perhaps maybe they could fix that lid.
Concealers -L'Oreal - ideal balance stick concealer

I have tried other concealers, but this is the best one. Its creamy and easy to blend. Just make sure that you get the right shade, the lot numbers change which can make it more orange or brown than you desire. But, other than that its worth the expense.
