This is my everyday mascara. I like the fact that it lengthens my lashes without being over-the-top and it doesn't clump so I have this long, natural-looking lashes which is perfect for my everyday look. Though it doesn't do anything to volumize my lashes, it's ok since it didn't promise either. It doesn't flake or smudge and very easy to remove at the end of the day. This will be a mainstay on my makeup kit.

This is a really great mascara, it lengthens, curls and separates my lashes to give it a wide-eye, feathery effect. It also lasts the whole day and doesn't flake or smudge- never budges at all. But I only use it like 4-5 times a week because it is such a pain to remove.

I should have read the reviews first before buying this product. I just found the ad so enticing though. Well this one went straight to the garbage can. The brush doesnt work, so much product clinging on the brush and the consistency is just.. uughhh! For the first time Revlon disappointed me big time! What a waste of money.
Tried this even though I don't have KP because I just want to exfoliate my skin and after reading numerous reviews. I wasn't disappointed. I never felt my skin this soft before and I noticed it also evened out my skin tone. It's a bit thick and hard to apply and you may feel sticky for awhile but it's all totally worth it. Only downside is that I have to order on ebay since it's not available here. But I will buy again after my bottle will run out.

I'm not very good at putting on eyeliner especially liquid eyeliners, I always always end up looking like a mess. So when I read in a magazine that gel liners are easier to put on, I bought this as my very first gel liner since the price wouldnt hurt as much if the product won't work. I'm not really disappointed. The brush is very easy to use even for a makeup-challenged like me, and the consistency is ok. Staying power is great, doesnt smudge on me (I have oily face and lids) and doesnt come off until I remove my makeup in the evening. Overall, I think this is a great product though I have yet to try the other more expensive brands now that I'm getting the hang of putting on gel liners. =_)
Powder -Giorgio Armani - Lasting Silk UV Compact Foundation

The best compact I have ever used! I'm very oily, tans easily and makeup always oxidizes on me (MAC, Paul and Joe, SKII). Tried this after a friend posted about this as the best powder ever but I have to wait till my next trip abroad since this is not available in our country. Powder is finely milled, really silky and has great oil control even on a very hot and humid day. If I want light coverage I just use it as is and if I want medium coverage I just lightly spray the sponge with avene thermal water. My skin looks radiant, my pores became non existent and evened out my complexion. I didn't break out (and I have super sensitive skin) and the bestest part is that it never oxidizes on me. If used with damp sponge it also has great staying power. It's a bit on the expensive side but totally worth it. Can't wait to try the liquid foundation.
