This is more of a tinted moisturizer and less of a foundation. It really didn't provide adequate coverage for me at all, but it is moisturizing. I still have quite a lot of left in my tube so I continue to use it occasionally as a moisturizer, but I wouldn't buy it again if I was looking for a foundation.
This was my go-to mascara for a long time. It is solid and does its job well. It's fairly unremarkable; it's not GREAT, but there's nothing in particular counting against it. It is a bit clumpy, but not overly so. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of the straight brush, so this isn't my favourite mascara, but it will do in a pinch.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared

I know that a lot of people don't like this mascara, but it's worked really well for me. The brush is a bit of a different shape from the originally Falsies, and I think it's more effective for my purposes. I love the flared look, and this does it perfectly. It does not really create a false eyelash effect, but it is volumizing, and I find this one to be less prone to clumping than the original Falsies. I also have not had problems with flaking, although I know a lot of people have. My eyelashes are naturally long, so this product does a great job of accentuating them and creating the flared effect that I like. It does smell a bit odd, but I'm used to that by now.
I really liked this product when I used it. It definitely doesn't give a false eyelash effect, but it was a solid mascara that created volume. I liked the formula and I really liked the curved brush. However, it is a bit clumpy, it dries out quicker than some other mascaras I've tried, and I like Falsies Flared better, so I won't be buying this one again. It's definitely a pretty good mascara, but I find the Flared spinoff better!
This product is definitely not for under-eye bags. Even for acne, I found it too cakey. I like the packaging in theory, and I was excited to try a creamy concealer. However, I find it very obvious both on zits and under my eyes.
I've gone through two tubes of this stuff for lack of anything better, but it's definitely not my favourite. It does diminish my dark circles, but it doesn't provide full coverage for them. I've found it pretty ineffective for dealing with zits as well. It does a decent job, but I think it costs too much for its effectiveness. I also think the colours are a bit weird. The palest colour is too light for me (which is odd, since I'm very pale), and the middle colour is too dark. I've used this concealer for about six months now, and it's OKAY - but I think it could be a lot better for $10CAD.
This is absolutely my favourite neutral eyeshadow. It really is my eyelids, but better. The colour blends beautifully with my skin tone, but it has a bit of that shimmer that elevates my eyelids. I don't like to go too crazy with my eyeshadow, so this is perfect for me - it enhances but isn't obvious.
Lipstick -New York Color - City Duet 2 in 1 Lip Color

I bought The Rockafellas because I wanted a coral lipstick for my prom in June, and for $3 it's hard to beat. The formula isn't perfect - it isn't totally smooth, and for someone with very dry lips it's not particularly hydrating or soothing. However, I liked both colours (and they do combine nicely), and it lasts a pretty long time. This isn't my favourite lip product, but considering the price it does its job.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Berry Smoothie
clemmmentine 1/22/2013 4:43:00 PM
I wanted Berry Smoothie to be more pigmented than it ended up being. It is very moisturizing and a nice colour for day-to-day use with a subtle shimmer, but I wish it was just a little more obvious. It also doesn't last very long. This one definitely disappointed me.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter - Raspberry Pie
clemmmentine 1/22/2013 4:42:00 PM
This was the first ColorBurst Lip Butter colour I bought, and I love it. It's very pigmented considering it's a lip butter, and adds a really nice pop. It also feels AMAZING - I have very dry lips, and this combined with a good lip balm keeps them very hydrated and smooth.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner
clemmmentine 1/22/2013 4:35:00 PM
This is one of my go-to eyeliners, especially for thinner lines. I find it to be slightly watery for my taste, and the tip is on the flexible side so takes a bit of practice to master, but the pigmentation is great and you really can get anything from a thin, subtle line to something thicker and more dramatic. It's not perfect, but it definitely serves a purpose for me.
Eyeliner -New York Color - High Definition Liquid Eyeliner extra black
clemmmentine 1/22/2013 4:33:00 PM
This is simply the best liquid eyeliner I've tried. I didn't like it at first because it applies a bit differently from most liquid eyeliners I've used, but once you get the hang of it it goes on much more smoothly and evenly than just about any other product. It's not too wet and lasts a long time, and at $3-4 the price can't be beat.
