I wore this mascara before, I had bought the same product twice. It did give me a fuller look, but not sure about lengthening my eye lashes. I'm not too worried about length because my eye lashes are already long.The brush is very big so it's kinda hard to coat the bottom lashes.
Powder -Estee Lauder - Double Matte Oil-Control Pressed Powder

I used this powder when I was a senior in high school. It's a good product but nothing special. The lady in the counter who "matched" the powder with my skin end up giving me a lighter color than my skin tone. I have acne prone skin and this product didn't broke me out and it did control my (used-to) oily t-zone. But like I sad it's not that special because there are other brands out there that do the same with a cheaper price.
I purchased this product few months ago and it last me for a long time. I really like the quality both the creme and the powder. The creme does a good job in keeping the powder on my eyebrows in place. I highly recommend this especially for those who don't want to spend too much money. Another product that I also like is the NYC eyebrow kit.

I purchased this product from a Sephora store and I was very disappointed. I don't know if Sephora had kept this product for so long or it's Too Faced fault for the bad quality. When I first used this product I got so much water coming out from the tube and I just thought maybe because it's the first time getting the product out, but days later it did the same thing too. It does have that brown creme but it's so watery and in the end I just got water out from that tube. I was traveling on that time so I didn't have the time to go back to Sephora to complain. I spent $17 on this product too, I'll never buy this thing again!
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Facial Cleansing Towelettes

My Skin: Acne prone, used to be really oily but after using lots of acne medications it became dry and sensitive. The Product: I would definitely repurchase this product again when I'm finished. I've been using this product for two weeks and it didn't broke me out. The smell doesn't bother me either. I don't wear water-proof make up so I'm not sure how this wipes would work on water-proof make up. But for me it takes off my make up just fine, including my eye make up and mascara. I know some people only use facial wipe and that's it, but for me it doesn't matter what brand it is I still have to rinse my face with water and my gel facial cleanser. However, there are times where I'm very tired at night and I just used this wipe cleanser and didn't rinse it off.
Pros: I have acne prone skin, but this foundation does not broke me out. It also gave me a good coverage, I don't usually wear a lot of concealer with this foundation because it can cover my redness/acne scars just fine. Cons: I can't get the right color for my skin tone. One time I bought a bottle that is 1 shade darker than my skin tone, so when I finished with the bottle I went to Target to purchase this foundation but 1 shade/color up than the previous one. Surprisingly, it looked too bright on my skin. Basically I have to buy 2 shades to match my skin tone. 1 bottle cost me $12 if I buy two then it'll be $24...I might as well go to a department store and buy a high end foundation where I can try on before buying it.
I don't like this product. It doesn't cover my redness, not even a little bit. The price is cheap, but what's the point of repurchasing something that doesn't work, I don't care if it was 10 cent, it's still a waste of money,.
My Skin: I have an acne-prone skin. My skin used to be oily, but ever since I started using different acne medications my skin had become dryer. In the winter it's very dry even in the T-Zone area. The Product: When II first applied this product on my face the creme was so thick and creamy that I thought it's going to make my face look oily and super oily if I use a liquid foundation. But that wasn't the case, the creme dry itself out in like 20-30 seconds and it makes my skin feel very soft. Other facial lotion would make my skin feel soft for awhile then my skin will get dry again especially in the cheek area, making my foundation looks cakey. But with this product my skin is moisturize for few hours ( I wouldn't say more than 12 hrs), so it goes perfect with my liquid/powder foundation. I've used this product for a month and I would definitely repurchase this product, especially when winter comes!
My hair: I have a VERY very long hair and I had highlight on my hair, to make it worst I hardly go to a salon to get my hair trim every few months. So you can imagine how destroyed and dry my hair is....well most of my friends/co-workers are actually surprise that my hair looks healthy and feel really soft and thought I must have spent hundreds of dollars on hair treatment. The product: The truth is I NEVER spent more than $10 on hair products. And it all thanks to Aussie 3 Minutes Miracle deep conditioner. I've used this product for more than a year. I know that my long & dyed hair is not as damaged due to this product and not because of my shampoo because I usually change my shampoo brands every-time I finished each bottle, so I know it's not the shampoo and I don't use leave in conditioner either. This product make my super long and dyed/highlighted hair very soft and clean. It also smells sweet :) The price/packaging: In the US, the price is very cheap it's only around $3 + tax. I also like the packaging because you don't have to open any cap, you just squeeze the bottle to get the product out. Con: It's not the product fault, it's just that my hair is super long so obviously I use more products (shampoo/conditioner) more than other people. I just hope that the company would make this product in a bigger bottle.
