This product is for yellow tone people or people who have very dark bruised puple dark under eyes. I have very very dark under circles for such a young age ( 14 ) And they are THE WORST!! I bought this and I didn't know what to think of it so i stopped using it. But then I started again and it's pretty good! First : don't glide this under our eyes, kind of smudge and dot this and build it up then pat pat under your eyes. 2nd : Apply a regular liquid concealer over this concealer base. Your undereyes circles will be significantly reduced. The yellow kind of cancels the darkness a bit and the regular concealer conceals more and takes away the yellow tone a bit. Rating : 3.5 This does smell weird...a bit...odd. But I don't smell it on my face. This may be drying to some people but just apply in small stroked and build it up around your eyes :D My eyes aren't even cakey with this and regular concealer + powder! My eyes are def. less dark and bruised looking it's not full full coverage it's sheer/medium coverage. Repurchase!!!!
I just got this from CVS and I was excited to try it because of the good reviews. I've used that rubber/plastic type wands that work really well for my sparse, long lashes. This has a fiber type of wand with a spoon design. I'm pretty sure I applied i incorrectly XD I made sure to apply it really slow........ It make a nice clean look, barely in clumps ( one coat btw ) and really lengthened my lashes. Did darker and make them more voluminous. gave a natural look without the clumps One coat by the way. I personally don't like the super dramatic look. But if you try, it might give you that! I'll edit this post when I try it again using the spoon shape correctly! :P EDIT : I've used this 2x more times?? Using the spoon shape correctly. This mascara is pretty good it's a bit clumpy which i dislike but that's my preference as i like natural looking lashes. It darkens, thickens and lengthens pretty well. Bad thing.......It flakes....after an hour i will see tiny specks but not SOOO MANY BLACK DOTS UNDER MY EYE..but there is flaking happening. You can gently pat and brush them off. Teeny bit smudging on the outer corner. Sadly..this mascara doesn't hold curl the best. I like my lashes really curly. i curl them my pumping my lash curler so it makes a really nice upwards curve. that doesn't stick up straight awkwardly like many girls curl their lashes. But after applying a thin coat the curl does fall. Not completely where my asian lashes stick straight. But the curl falls alot. I'll give these mascara a 3.5 it's not horrible but just not for my personal preference! I still like it, just not love it :)))
The Waterproof version holds the lashes really well. I like to swipe this through my lashes only ONCE and ONCE. To make sure my lashes are coated nicely. Too many swipes/coats will result in clumpiness. Especially when it begins to dry. But it GETS THEM ONE BY ONE OF COURSE :D I really like it. I don't wear it that much cause of waterproof is too drying, but i really enjoy it ^_^ Gives a reallyyyy nice finish. I love it so much ^_^ it's really important to curl nicely. Curl the root, and pump your curler til you reach the tips of your lashes. you get a overall natural curve to your lashes, you'll get the best results this way :)

I like this mascara. After 6 hrs, you can see some slight smudging at the bottom. but it does lengthen and volumize my lashes a bit. Looks really natural and nice for one coat. ( Very light swipes ) I received this as a gift from the company. No more then 1 coat, it might clump. When it dried out, I think it worked better for my lashes. It's $20 it's good, but not holy grail. Spend the money on a cheaper mascara. Not bad at all. No clumping if used correctly.
This product is FANTASTIC!! I'm 14 and I recently started to break out in my cheeks. Individual bumps and lots of redness. The next day after using this product, the bumps and especially the REDNESS went down SIGNIFICANTLY. My other skincare cleansers/scrubs weren't cutting it, but this helped my acne and redness a lot. After a week, your skin ( Mine was mild ) should be almost cleared and much better ^_^ Cons : 1. I didn't like the smell. Smelled like citrus. But keep in mind the least used ingredient was Fragrance. But doesn't change my opinion about this product. 2. There are tiny micro beads that break apart and may get into your hairline or eyelashes, so make sure to rinse clear of everything. Pros 1. Cleared redness and acne!!! Woohoo!! 2. Scrubs gently and then lathers a little at the end :) OVERALL : 4.5/5 !! Loved it !! ^_^
