Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - Be A Bombshell- Eyeliner

I LOVE THIS EYELINER SO MUCH! This is my absolute, favorite eyeliner of all time and I have went on the longest quest to find one like this. I was fortunate by finding out about this eyeliner due to an old subscription I had with glambag/ipsy and that was the only good product that I received from the subscriptions. I love how versatile this eyeliner is. Of course practice makes perfect, but you can do a thin or thick line depending on your technique. I love using this eyeliner for the cat eye look. I do tend to get oily lids and this product does not budge even through all-day wear, plus some accidental naps. BUT the wonderful thing about this is that it can budge, if you want it to. These next few sentences will be a horrible thing I am admitting to: I cannot get my eyeliner wing perfect every, single time. So during the times where it does go wrong, I simply just use my finger (a q-tip when I have them around) to smear/remove some of it and redraw. It won't budge from wear, but it will budge if you need it to. It's perfect! I will continue to repurchase as long as they continue to sell this product.
When I first went to Sephora, I was looking for a good concealer and was persuaded towards purchasing the Bobbi Brown foundation stick in Warm Sand. Overally, the packaging for the product is great, I have never had an accidents with its twist tube packaging and the lid has never came loose. I do travel with this quite a lot in an effort to finish it. As an overall foundation, this isn't one I would recommend. Even when I do moisturize beforehand, I find that it still highlights any cracks in my skin and that's definitely not cute. As a concealer, I do find myself grabbing for it often because the application is simple and it is a decent under eye concealer for me. I will probably not repurchase due to its price and lack of versatility.
I really wanted to like this product, but unfortunately it does not work out for me as much as I wanted it too. I was very excited upon my purchase because the NARS Orgasm blush has been hyped up for so long. However, thumbs down for me. I found that my skin looks better with matte blushes and the amount of sparkles that showed up on my face, even after blending, really put me off of this product. The packaging for the product is of course from NARS and comes with a big mirror inside so thumbs up for that!

I really wanted to like this product, but unfortunately it does not work out for me. I am Asian with light/medium skin and on me, it actually makes me look OILY versus having a nice glow. I wish that it could have worked out for me, but unfortunately it didn't. The packaging for the product is of course from NARS and comes with a big mirror inside so thumbs up for that!

I actually really love these makeup wipes! The first makeup removing wipes that I used were the ones from Neutrogena in the blue packaging and it left my skin very oily. Upon opening it up, I found the smell to be extremely pleasant. I do feel like the packaging could improve because the "glue" tends to wear down after frequent usage, leaving your wipes to dry up. I do not find that I have to rub hard on my skin to remove eye makeup. A single wipe helps me take off my "face" (ex. foundation, concealer, lip color, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara). My face does not feel oily after.. instead it feels quite soft. However, I still clean my face after with a cleanser just by my own preference. I have continually repurchased these wipes and will continue to (even if I don't like the new, white packaging :P)
