This is one of the blackest eyeliners you will find and does glide on easily without tugging at the eyes. However on my deepset eyes this transfers and moves horribly, my lids are not oily however when my eyes are open my lashline does touch my socket and this is where my eyeliner will sadly endup. Such a pity as it is such a deep black colour.
I liked the texture of this gloss, on my lips it felt comfortable and not too sticky, unfortunatly I found the taste and smell revolting so had to remove it soon after as both did not fade. I found the packaging cute but overall if I cant stand wearing it what is the point, esoecially as its not cheap. If you can try this on before buying and if you like the smell/taste.

I've this is both kiwi and milk. I've very pale skin and can have problems with redness. My skin goes from dry in the winter to combo/oily in the summer and I find the base works well all year. The kiwi definitly helps to take down my redness while the milk i find is great for evening out my skin on days when red is not my main problem. I loved the fact that this is not a silicone based primer but i understand that people may find it a little heavy and thick to apply but once you get the hang of the application it really is a great product. A little goes a long way so start with a little then add more if needed. As my skin is quite good on some days, once i apply this to even out my skin/cover redness some days i can get away without foundation if i'm in a rush. This helps with oxidation of foundations as my skin has the nasty habbit of changing foundation colours. I absolutely love this makeup base, for my personal tastes its the best i've found and i've tried alot.
I love juicy tubes but I just hate the taste and smell of this one. The colour is a pretty pink on and the staying power is good for a gloss, i just can't get past the taste and smell and have to wipe it off not long after applying.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

This was my first attempt at using a gel eyeliner as in the past i've always found most pencils to dry and dragging and all liquid liners completely useless because they always end up all the way up my eyelid as soon as I open them, and I must say I found after using this gel it solved all my problems. This was easy to use (i use a smashbox angled eyeliner brush) and dried quick enough not to end up all the way up my eyelid as soon as I opened them. The colour is a great true deep black and the texture is nice a creamy and I just love the little jar it comes in. This pot has lasted me months and has not dried up. I love the look this gives me and has converted me to finally using eyeliners. After my long search I've finally found a liner I can use and this is it!!
