Eyeliner -Maybelline - Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black

I like that it is a retractable eyeliner but it is such terrible quality. It smudges like no tomorrow! It does apply on nicely, very creamy. However, it broke off many times on me and I did not apply any pressure to it. I tried so hard to like it because it glides on so nicely on my lids but the smudging was a big no-no for me.

I love how creamy this eyeliner applies. It does not smudge all day but I have noticed some fading, especially in the inner eye corners. The only downside with this eyeliner is that it is so creamy, I have to resharpen it so many times! What a waste of a good product. I also find it hard to really get a sharp end with this eyeliner so it is hard to make a sharp, precise line. I'm always on the lookout for great eyeliners, so will I repurchase? Maybe.
This eyeliner broke off on my first use and I did not even apply pressure to it. The color payoff was terrible and it tugged at my lids. Would not repurchase.

This is the only mascara that I've ever used that would hold up my short, straight lashes. After curling my lashes, I apply one to two coats of this mascara and I am fine for the rest of the day! It does not smudge on me and lasts all day. Love, love this!

Color payoff is great and it applies easily, but boy oh boy does it smudge! After a few hours, I look like a raccoon. Not repurchasing.

The brush was so rigid and awkward that it hurt my eyes just to put it on. It tugged at my lids and the color payoff (I got it in brown) was terrible. The consistency was sticky and so hard to take off later. It irritated my eyes after one day of use, so it quickly went into the trash that same day. It was such a waste. :(
For $10, I get an amazing product that goes on easy and stays on long. It doesn't smudge or flake on me and it dries fast on application. Overall, I simply love it and will repurchase!
Love this concealer for my face! Its coverage for my acne scars and blemishes have been amazing. The only downside is that it is terrible for my undereyes (that explains why I'm giving it a rating of 4) because it creases and exaggerates fine lines due to its thick consistency. It has average staying power, but it is the best concealer I've purchased in a while.

It felt more like a face moisturizer for me and not so much a primer. I guess it helps my makeup stay on a little more than usual but really, I feel like I can go without it and I wouldn't even notice a difference. Overall, I would not repurchase.

LOVED this moisturizer! I've had a hard time looking for a moisturizer that would meet the needs of my dry sensitive skin. It is light and nongreasy with no detectable smell. This is my everyday moisturizer, even under makeup. And the best thing is that it is super cheap! I believe it is only about $2-$3 at Walmart (compared to the $10-$12 Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Facial Moisturizer).

I have the spf 50 version, but this product was absolutely terrible! I have sensitive dry skin and without thinking, purchased this product only to burn my face! I don't know if I had an allergic reaction to some of the ingredients but it burned so badly when I put it on that I had to wash it off right away. After a few days, my face broke out like madness! Also, it smelled badly and it made my face look really pale. It is also expensive for a small bottle (around $12 @ Walmart). I've never had any problems with moisturizers (or Neutrogena brands for that matter) until this one. Will not purchase again.

Overall, I thought this product was great with a few exceptions. I liked that this was a great alternative to wearing heavy sunscreen, especially for my face because I have very sensitive, dry skin. This goes on light but can get a bit greasy throughout the day. I get a lot when I pump it, so I pump it halfway, so I won't waste any of it. I thought it was a bit on the pricey side (around $7 @ Walmart) for this size bottle but worth it. The only downfall is that it makes my face look really pale. Great for outdoor wear, however, not so much with makeup because of the paleness it gives the face.
It gave me a medium coverage and it doesn't cake but can feel pretty heavy on the face. Also, it can get greasy after a couple hours, but a setting powder should fix that. I notice that I don't really use liquid foundation as much, so this bottle has lasted me quite a while. I don't think I will repurchase after this though.
I LOVE these eyeshadows! It is creamy and easy to blend and I can wear this alone but it also works great as a base for powder eyeshadows. Price is affordable and packaging is cute. The only downside is that it often creases after a couple hours. I probably will repurchase again but only for the colors that I really like.
My hair is pretty frizzy and wavy, but I love the effects of this shampoo and conditioner on my hair! It is probably one of the best ones I've tried so far and it really keeps the frizz nicely tamed. The only downside is that the shampoo really dries my hair out so I always have to use the conditioner and due to all the moisture that it gives the hair, it makes my hair pretty oily more than usual. So, I am still on a quest to find the perfect shampoo for my type of hair. For now, I can settle with this one.
