This makeup remover sucks, and I don't even know why I dealt with it for a year. It barely removed my makeup, even after scrubbing my eyes with a Q-tip. All it did was peel the skin around my eyes as a result, which was not fun. Since it didn't remove my makeup properly, I had to invest in baby oil to remove my eye makeup, then makeup removing wipes to wipe of the oil, and then I would use this at the end just to remove any residue; all of this adding up to more money than I should spend. I suggest you save your $5 and buy a nice sandwich or something, because this makeup remover is not worth it at all.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clean & Clear - Oil free Soothing Eye Makeup Remover

LOVE this makeup remover! Before using this, I was using the Nivea Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, which sucked by the way, but I still dealt with it. Using this remover is like a dream after putting up with the Nivea one, baby oil, and countless makeup remover wipes for a year. If you use this remover, you don't need anything else but water to wash it off. I wear waterproof mascara everyday, and this removes it easily and without fuss. My skin did feel slightly greasy after application, but after rinsing it off, the skin around my eye area felt soft and smooth. I found this remover at Winners for $5, and it is probably one of the best beauty investments that I've made.
I really did want to like this lip stain. The idea of it sounded very fresh and convenient in my mind, but alas, we were not meant to be. Honestly, I was really disappointed with this lipstain. Sure, it was pigmented, and rich in colour, but applying it was a pain to control and what's worse - it couldn't handle eating or drinking at all. When I bit into my sandwich, the product rubbed off onto my sandwich... the part that I haven't even eaten yet! Major yuck. That's just unacceptable for a lipstain, so I will not be repurchasing this again.
I absolutely love this lipstick! I have two other colours from the Revlon Colorburst line, Raspberry, which I love and Petal, which I don't quite love. Since I loved Raspberry so much, I decided to try Peach since I figured it would offer enough pigmentation for good results (unlike Petal), and it really does give off a nice peachy color that looks great against my skin tone. It has a nice and creamy texture, lasts quite a few hours, and it's a matte colour with no added shimmers are shines. Also, the packaging is very attractive. Overall, I will definitely be buying this lipstick again, and I will continue to try out other colours from the Revlon Colorburst line.
Eyeliner -Cover Girl - Liquiline Blast in Brown Blaze

I absolutely love this eyeliner! Not only is it cheap, and easy to find, but the quality is also really good, and I think that it's a great dupe for the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner. In fact, I prefer this one over Urban Decay because I find that it stays on my lids longer, and doesn't smudge as much - yet it offers the same amount of pigmentation. I normally put this on my lower lashline with pressed powder underneath to set it, and it lasts for 8 hours with only a little fading. Overall, if you're looking for a good pencil liner, the Liquiline Blast line is worth checking out.
I gave this powder 5 lippies until I tried the L'Oreal True Match one. I used to use this powder as a finishing touch on my face, and under my eyes to set my eyeliner, and I thought that it did a wonderful job... until I tried the L'Oreal one. There was no heaviness or cakiness, and it did provide enough coverage for a more polished and finished look, but on oilier areas, such as the nose, it had to be touched up several times a day. I didn't mind at the time, but compared to powders that last all day, I don't see the point in all the frequent touchups; it just leads to a more cakey feel the more I touchup. I do like how they have a wide variety of colours to choose from, but there are better powders out there.
The formula of this mascara is a little too wet for my liking, and the brush only makes it worse. When I take the brush out of the bottle, I can see the wetness of the mascara sticking all over it. You have to apply it with a very light hand or else it starts going on your skin, and it can get very messy - especially when it's new. I find that the mascara gets better the more it's used, because it loses the heaviness, but I think that there are better mascaras out there that can deliver no matter how old/new it is. It's not a bad mascara, as it does make your lashes very black, but it's nothing special either. I expected a little better from the Voluminous Original. Overall, I think that this mascara is skippable. L'Oreal has better mascaras than this one that you might as well spend your money on, and so for that reason, I will not be repurchasing this mascara.
This is one of my favourite lipsticks ever, and I wear it all the time. It's a red that's not as bright as a true red, so if you're afraid of wearing red because you don't want it to be too loud, colorburst in raspberry is good for you. The texture is nice and creamy, and it feels smooth on the lips. My one complaint would be that it rubs off quite easily, but even when it does, it still leaves a nice stain. I will definitely re-buy this when mine runs out!
This lipstick has the prettiest colour, but unfortunately, it has very little colour payoff. Instead, it adds a soft shimmer to the lips and since it's close to my lip colour, it acts as a lip enhancer for me. It has the look of a light layer of lip gloss but since the texture is nice and smooth, has the feel of a balm. It's not that bad for daily wear, but I was hoping for something with more pigmentation, which is why I won't be buying it again.
I bought this product for about $16 Canadian because I was looking for an everyday powder that I could use anytime. It provides a brush that is actually quite soft and it isn't too bad to use, so it's handy when travelling, because you don't have to worry about bringing your own brush. When you apply the powder on your face, it really does provide this wet, cooling sensation that you really should try for yourself, and I found it to be quite neat. This powder really gave my face a more polished and finished look, making it look soft and smooth. The coverage is very light though, so if you're looking for serious coverage, this isn't for you. The reason why the Revlon Colorstay Aqua only gets a two is because of it's shimmer. It's not something that you notice in the container, and it's not even something you notice when you apply it. It's under direct sunlight where you notice all the little shimmers that they include in the powder. I only put a light coat of it on, so the shimmers are still tolerable (though I'm still not a fan of it), but if you put enough of this on to the point where it's medium/heavy coverage, I would stay out of direct sunlight - which is the reason why I think that you shouldn't get this if you're looking for a powder that'll give you a fair amount of coverage. Overall, I think you can skip this product, whether you have normal skin that's looking for that extra polish or skin that has a few problem areas that need covering up. Unless you want to look sparkly, I suggest you save your money, and invest in another different product.
