Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Length Fiber Extensions

This product doesn't do anything for volume, but it does wonders for length just like it claims. The fiber extensions are wonderful, they made my lashes super long without getting clumpy or flaky. It doesn't really feel like you're wearing mascara with this on. It held the curl fairly well, but not amazingly so. It stays on all day, but when you go to wash it off it comes off very easily without tugging any of your eyelashes out with it.
All this product did was burn and irritate my acne. I don't know what's in this gel that makes it different, but I recommend just regular tea tree oil instead.
Liquid -The Body Shop - Moisture Foundation SPF 15

This foundation is absolutely amazing. I have acne prone skin, but it also tends to get very dry. Most foundations tend to look cakey on me, and cause breakouts. I have not once had a breakout with this foundation, and it's not at all noticeable when I have it on. To get the best coverage, I've found that you really need to use a foundation brush when you apply it. I dot the foundation all around my face (the little pump on this bottle is amazing by the way, and it squeezes the product up from the bottom so you can get every last drop), and then blend it in with a flat foundation brush. And then for any pimples or super red spots I have, I take a smaller concealer brush, swipe some of the foundation up from around the pump and apply that directly on the trouble spot. It works amazing.
I truly hate this product. I got it in both white and black. I got the white for my waterline. The pigmentation is horrible and it doesn't apply well at all. I then got the black for my lid, thinking it just wasn't meant for the waterline and the white wasn't pigmented because it was, well, white. Nope. The black wasn't very black at all, and smudged a couple hours into wearing. Not worth the money at all.
This is the only eyeliner I use. The pigment for every color is absolutely amazing, you don't have to worry about retracing your line. And this stuff stays on ALL DAY. You have to make sure you purchase the waterproof kind though, the regular kind smudges like crazy.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

I'm absolutely in love with this mascara. After my horrific encounter with the Falsies mascara, I never thought I would come back to Maybelline. But I saw this while I was perusing Wal Mart and the whole "gel mousse" concept caught my eye, so I gave it shot. I'm so glad I did. I only have to use one coat, and my lashes are insanely intensified. It creates both amazing volume and length. And the best part is the way your lashes feel after you apply it. They aren't stiff and crumbly. They're soft and fluttery, like you aren't even wearing mascara. I adore and recommend this product.
