I like this... I am on my second jar... And now I've read the other reviews and they scare me... Now, I'm starting to question whether or not that spontaneous breakout session a couple months back could have something to do with this, but there are numerous other things that could have contributed to that... Generally, I do love this gel. The post about ingredients being in paint thinner or something, really scared me though :\
I do like the tingling cool sensation afterwards, but overall, I don't find this product to do anything special for me. After reading all these happy reviews, I will pay closer attention to any changes in my skin, but thus far, nothing drastic has occurred. I use it every morning, and I do not have the oiliest skin and it is quite sensitive, but I have not experienced anything that is "too harsh" for my skin. I find that a bit funny considering I do have sensitive skin. But who each their own... It's cheap and it feels great, I would give a thumbs up to this product. I am still on the hunt for an amazing scrub though.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It is gorgeous on the lips and cheeks, however I prefer to use it on the lips. It provides for a very youthful and vibrant colour for the lips. It's downsides are that they cause my lips to peel and it's price! The peeling I can deal with, but the reason I will not be repurchasing this product is because similar products can be purchased in Korea and I'm sure other brands for under 10USD. I do reccomend this product if you are willing to spend the bucks.
Eyeliner -Make Up For Ever - Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Mat Black 0L

Of all the pencil eyeliners that I have tried, this is the best, however it does not in any case live up to the standards that I was hoping for. I have asian eyes, one monolid and one ssanggopeul (with a crease) and I use a liquid liner in my daily make up routine. I hoped to use a pencil eyeliner to rim my upper lash line for a more natural look. I tried numerous pencils, and finally tried the MUFE aqua eyes which seemed to not smudge on so many peopled. yet again, the same problems occurred with other drugstore pencils. Within 10 minutes, eyeliner had transferred to the lower lashline, eyebag area (the band of fat under the eyes) creating a very ugly and large black rim at the bottom of the eye making me look depressed. this liner works very well on my lower lash line (however, many drugstore liners can do the same) but does just as bad as a job on the upper lashline and waterline. considering it was considerably more expensive, i have to say it was a miss for me.
I have to say that this product works for me for the reasons that it doesn't work for many people. 1. The wand is small and rubbery (my lashes are very asian and very sparse) 2. The formula is dry (doesn't weigh down my lashes like crazy) I prefer this to the original lash blast because that brush is insanely big and the mascara gets everywhere on my eye and barely on my lashes ):
Concealers -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Spot Concealer

I have to say that this is definitely one of the most expensive drugstore concealers... That being said, it provides for descent coverage. Pros: - Nice coverage - THANK GOD for yellow undertones - helps with acne 50% of the time (the rest of the time acne just proceeds to develop as usual) Cons: - bit expensive - slightly unsanitary application Love the concealer though. Definitely pick it up if you have yellow undertones! ***UPDATE: I was applying this concealer in a different setting than usual and saw that my skin turned VERY VERY noticably gray in the spots where applied... It had to be removed straight away. I tried it the next day and saw no such thing. This has made me very worried that perhaps my usual makeup application setting is unreliable in seeing terrible grey splotches...
