Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles
nadiasaurus 10/21/2012 12:54:00 AM
The product is very brightening under the eyes and I use it on blemishes too. Covers dark circles really well. The applicator worked out fine for blending out the product. Sometimes getting it to come out is hard so I apply pressure to the applicator to get concealer out and then blend.
Pros: Natural looking, even with thick-ish consistency VERY GOOD STAYING POWER, less touch-ups needed Medium-full coverage Semi-matte finish Cons: Bad packaging! Huge,heavy glass container is very inconvenient. The only way to get out the product is to use your fingers or something else to scoop it out of the jar. The plastic part on the inside of the lid broke when I twisted it too hard and now it is impossible to screw on properly. Price was a bit higher than expected-around $14, however there is ALOT of product and you don't need much to cover your face. The product works very well for my oily skin and I only wish the packaging was better.

Does what it says. Shortens the life of any pimple, excels in drying it up quickly only to leave a small dark dry-ish spot. The pigmentation fades in time and the small spot of dryness is easily fixed with exfoliation. I always apply before going to bed and sometimes twice throughout the day with stubborn pimples but it always kills it in the end thanks to the strong benzyl peroxide. No complaints.
I have fairly normal skin and I used the Dead Sea mask, it felt fresh and cool while applying and smelled awesome. Once it dried and washed off, my face was smoother and my pores look clean. the price was only 1$ at walgreens which i am so pleased about! also, there was alot in the pouch, enough to cover my face and i still had extra. that was probably supposed to be used on my neck,though.overall, great!
iv been using this for a while and i dont even have to use my lash comb,this mascara DOES NOT CLUMP and does everything t should. lengthens pretty well and volumizes too. i got it in the blue color and it only shows up in sunlight but otherwise it looks normal.plus,the wand isnt too big,it really is GREAT ;D
this was the only color i saw that would look semi natural on my lips,most of the colors r very bright or very dark. victorian does look really great on the lips but its sooo drying and the lipbalm at the end is genius! the color applied evenly and with the marker tip it was easy to sort of "line" a shape well. i was careful with the balm beacuase everyone said it fell off at the slightest touch. overall its a pretty good product and it lasts great :}
Eye Shadow -Coastal Scents - 88 color matte palette

i love this palette! definately recommended for beginners because most of these colors r nicely pigmented and beautiful. however some of the lighter matte shades are chalky and hard to get show up so i was dissapointed on finding a nice highlight color but overall its really great for such a low price.
i love this stuff on my cheeks! im medium-tan and it looks so pretty and natural. its very sheer so at first i was put down but you can build up the color very easily. i put 3 or 4 dots then quickly blend in circles on my cheekbone then add another couple of dots for it to look like im glowing from within! plus its very longlasting and its true that its pretty waterproof;i wore this to the gym and it lasted thru alot of sweating but sadly not for the pool after ward. i dont recommend it on the lips however,as others have said it sinks into lines and applies unevenly and doesnt last at all.
Eyeliner -Tarte - EmphasEYES waterproof clay eye shadow & liner

k so THIS IS WATERPROOF, at least for me. i wore a thick winged line on my upper lash line to swim in my pool. i literally put my head underwater a bunch of times and this did not smudge,smear or anything. the pigmentation was faded a bit--it wasnt as black as it started--but the shape was still there,i had no raccoon eyes! this is definitely my go-to liner for the summer on the east coast!!easy application,truly waterproof,creamy and pigmented :]
application took a while to get down pat but eventually i opted for directly putting the container on my cheek and twisting it a bit up and down my cheekbone for a color that actually shows up well,although it is a bit sticky.very blendable,lasts a long time and blushing bride is a good color i think for all skin tones(it compliments my medium-tan skin and my sisters slightly fairer skin tone). overall this is a good product and i would recommend it to anyone. the company is eco-freindly cruelty free and all their products use natural ingrediants :]
