Amazing product. It doesnt smudge at all on my VERY oily skin and just stays put for at least 5-6 hours. The wand is very very tiny, perfect for little bottom lashes and sometimes I even use it on my top lashes that are very tiny right in the inner corners of my eyes. Although the wearing time is great this product is a pain to remove! My go-to eye makeup remover Lancome Bi-facil which usually removes EVERYTHING doesnt move this at all. The only way to remove this product without taking your eye out is to gently rub your lashes between your fingers with warm water.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Underground 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

I repurchased this pencil for more than 4 times and I still love it. The color is a taupey brown and it looks lovely against my warm skin. It is perfect for lazy makeup days where you can define your eyes only with this pencil. It doesnt look too done or too made up. My only complaint is that it jut doesnt last very long. It is a very lovely consistency to work with - very creamy- but usually disappears after 2-3 hours on my oily eyelids without a primer underneath it.

Love the packaging, after having tried SO many mascaras (Lancome, MUFE, Dior, Maybelline, Loreal etc) I have finally settled for this. It separates, gives volume and lengthens. It can dry to a slightly sticky finish but doesnt bother me.
Very lightweight concealer that doesnt crease or look cakey. It has very minimum coverage and can settle into the lines after 2-3 hours.
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer

I tried Estee Lauder eye cream couple of years ago and it gave me horrible milia within a week. After this horrible experience i though i would still give double wear concealer a go as I read so many great reviews about it. BUT IT GAVE ME MILIA. Within a week. Basically if youre okay with estee lauder products for the eyes then give it a try but if not, dont bother.
I have the single concealer without the powder or the corrector. I usually cant be bothered to set it with a powder after I apply it and this just slides off my face after maximum 2 hours and it creases as well.
Eyeliner -Sephora - Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof

Definitely recommend these liners! They are AMAZING. I have three shades: Grey, Purple and Khaki. They last for at least 4 hours without smudging on my VERY oily eyelids with UDPP underneath as a primer. Anything that lasts more than 2 hours on my eyelids is a winner for me.
Primer/ Corrector -Skindinavia - No More Shine Makeup Finish

I expected so much more from this product however it was a bit of a disappointment! I really wanted to test this product so I did not apply any primer underneath my Bourjois healthy mix foundation and I did not set the foundation with a powder either. Although my makeup (my foundation and blusher etc) did last for longer, I still had to blot my face exactly after 3 hours as I was shiny as hell! Next time I will try with a primer and a powder and see how that goes.
I have used this product for 10 years. It is by far the best eye-lash curler on the market and I've used shu, jemma kid, mac you name it ive probably tried it but these ones are absolutely the best. If you ever need to refill the spongy bit by the way look no further than Muji, they have some great cheap ones!
