this eyeliner is very easy to use, it's really black, and goes on nicely and is very smudge proof. the only reason why it's getting a 3 instead of 5 is because it's DEFINITELY NOT WATERPROOF. Like if you wear this say, to a pool, it WILL be running down your face. but if it was waterproof like the packaging says, I would like it a lot.
Like all the other reviewers of Dense have said, this is a very very dark brown-plum-red. Also, it is very very dark on me when applied normally, but if I apply it with my finger or I blot, it turns a very nice dark reddish stain. I am NC20, green eyes, dark hair and warm/olive toned skin and this works very good for me. However I will probably not repurchase.
Lipstick -Revlon - Revlon Super Lustrous in Fire and Ice

I love this lipstick!!! On me (NC20-25) it shows up a bright red. However, on my friend, it showed up a bright pink, so this might not work on everyone. The staying power of this lipstick is very good. I will repurchase this when I run out.
I bought this wanting a kind of opaque pure mauvy-pink, but this is still good even though it is not what i had wanted. It is a mauvy-pink, but the shimmer and shine in it make it look sheer. I'm NC20-25 and this is a very good MLBB shade with a touch of pink. Probably will not repurchase.
This would be an amazing gloss if not for the annoying packaging and sticky texture! The color is a very girlish pink, and even though it is sheer, it shows up that way on my lips, too. Probably will not buy again because of the packaging.
This is the only lip polish I've tried, and I like it a lot. Its a YLBB nude shade with a hint of mauve. It is more opaque in color than the glosses, but it has the same staying power as the gloss. This is a very nice product, but I probably won't buy again.
I got this eyeliner because it came with the Red Carpet Look Palette... I am sooo glad I bought it!!! This is the blackest-black eyeliner ever created! Other positives: if you want a smudgy smokey look this is very easy to smudge, but once it sets, for me, it stays put and doesn't come off. I fell asleep last night without taking my makeup off... when I woke up it was still perfect!! For people with oily lids, this not might work great, but it was a great buy for me. :)
I have combination + teenager skin= breakouts. I mean my breakouts aren't super bad but bad enough for me. I use this either alone or with my St. Ives apricot scrub and it keeps my skin relatively clear. This is awesome at removing makeup and it doesn't leave my skin really dry like some acne face washes i've used before overall really good. :) mo
Styling Products -Clairol - Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse

This is a pretty good mousse, I like it better than Garnier Wonder waves mousse. I put this in after my Herbal essences long term relationship leave in conditioner and the garnier shine serum, and I either just let it dry or I go to bed and my hair comes out in really pretty waves most of the time. It smells really great too and it doesn't make my hair sticky. :) mo
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in Chianti [DISCONTINUED]
mo141 10/3/2009 11:31:00 PM
This eyeliner is pretty good, it actually didn't smudge during the day. The color isn't what it is on the outside of the pencil; it's really a plummy burgundy brown. If your eyes get irritated or read a lot, I wouldn't wear this e/l because it might accentuate the red. The color otherwise is really nice. :) mo

This is such a great product! The color is a pewter like color, but it has so many other colors put into it that it can look like a different color depending on what you put with it. It can look gray, blue, greenish, goldish... It is such a pretty color and I think it would look great with any eye color. I like that I can use this w/o a base or with one, and it doesn't crease or fade. The pigmentation is also great. I give 2 thumbs up! :)
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous in Softshell pink
mo141 8/22/2009 2:33:00 PM
This color is very different on your lips than what it looks like in the tube. In the tube it is a pretty bright pink, with some almost detectable orange. On the lips it is a super frosted light pink. Uhhhhh.... not exactly the look I'm going for.... I think if you are very fair, or pretty dark in skintone, this might look nice on you, but on me (NC25/27) this looks like I'm a five year old playing with my mothers OLD makeup. (I do like the texture of these lipsticks tho) :) mo
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Wear Infinite Star Secrets Eyeshadow Quad in Eva's Violets
mo141 8/22/2009 2:30:00 PM
I would really love these eyeshadows if they were more pigmented. In this Quad you get a white shimmery highlighter, a shimmery light pink, a shimmery lavender, and a nearly matte dark purple. Even with a primer, the colors show up fairly subdued, and my skin isn't even very dark (NC20/NC25/NC27). I've found that over MAC's cream colour base (in shell) these colors, especially the darkest color, look very pretty although it is stilla very subdued color. I would give these a 3, but with the cream color base, I like these more. :) mo
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Quad - Drama Eyes
mo141 8/22/2009 2:25:00 PM
This palette consists of 4 colors- a white, black, silver, and reddish/plum burgundy color. The burgundy color is the most pigmented out of the bunch and I actually really like it. It's great for a color lightly in your crease or for darkening a plum/purple smokey eye. the other colors are OK, not extremely pigmented. the Black comes out more of a dark grey, and the silver doesn't really show up on me except for the shimmer in it. The white is, again, OK, but not amazing. I think I will try out more drugstore brands for eyeshadow before buying this again. :) mo
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expertwear eyeshadow quad "Sunlit bronze" 50
mo141 8/22/2009 2:15:00 PM
I would not reccomend this as a good buy to anyone. I bought this because the colors look really nice in the packaging: nice coppery, bronze shades, which was what I was looking for at the time. But really these shadows are not pigmented at all(even over a primer), they have overloads of shimmer, and when you put it on, you don't even see the color, just the shimmer. I only gave this two stars because I do occasionally reach for the lightest color for a highlight, but that's it. :( I wish this was a better product. :) mo
