Okay, I got a sample for NC35 cuz I didnt want to spend my money before being sure. I have tried everything available in sephora. I have tried Stila, Sephora, Dior, MUFE but nothing gave me that "wow" look. I don't have much dark circles, but I have been aiming for the flawless look. It definitely is the best ever. Im not sure about it being drying, creasing cuz i have not worn it for longer periods. Once I do, I will update the review :)
Eyeliner -Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

THE BEST EYELINER EVERRR !!!! I guess that says it all. I am very bad with liquid eyeliner as I tend to mess up, but this has the best tip ever. Its very pointed and very very easy to use. If you can't use this, liquid eyeliners are just not for you :) Okay, this is easy to use, very black, completely waterproof, barely smudges, and washes off very easily with eye make up remover, with no mess. What else can you look for in an eyeliner ;) It may be a little expensive to be $26 CAD, but for something like this, I dont mind spending my money cuz it more than deserves it :)
Okay, to begin with, I have a very annoying dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. Its nice and glowy most of the times, but one wrong use of a product makes it start breaking out and going on incessantly. Neutrogena, so far, is the best brand that takes care of my tender skin in a very gentle way. I picked this toner mainly to wash off the left residue from makeup. Pore tightening came as an added advantage. It does a good job of cleansing my skin, and I have realized that when I stop using it, my skin starts breaking out or gets tons of white head, cuz my skin demands being cleaned very well. Regarding the pore tightening, honestly I never cared to even notice any difference on the pores. I do have noticeable pores but as long as I dont have white heads, I'm good and this product helps me with that. I would not rebuy this right after, because i feel that it is a little too strong for long term use as I am looking for something that doesn't have alcohol in it. I will try the alcohol-free toner from Neutrogena, and I may come back to this later on.

I don't know if i got the wrong color for me or what, this concealor sucks! The girl at sephora tried this on me, I saw it in the mirror and didnt like it much,but even my friend who i went with was like woww its greattt. I ended up spending $45 bucks on this shit that I brought home and never dared to put it while going out. When i put it on my dark circles, it DEEPENS the color!! Its soo drying and it has to be patted out hell a lot, and guess what, it still won't conceal anything. I regret getting this product. I read so many good reviews about it here and even on youtube, but it was waste of money for me. It seems impossible to cover even one eye with this, let alone the 'full-coverage'.

Worst eyeliner ever!! Seriously don't waste your money on this. I know most eyeliners smudge on waterline, but this one completely washes off my waterline within two hours. I tried it with primer, powder, eye shadow and what not! I wasted $20 on a product that for some reason is so raved about. My cheapest eyeliners do a better job. Such a waste ! :[
the worst mascara ever !! I always thought it was me but im glad its this stupid mascara
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Moisture Sensitive Skin

THIS IS THE BEST MOISTURIZER EVER !! I am one of those people who have a very annoying skin. If I moisturize, it get break outs and if i dont, my skin gets dry, ugly and flaky. I have tried everything, from cetaphil, marcelle to herbal ones. But i hated all of them. They were too greasy, made my skin look dark and made me look horrible if worn under make up. I got this moisturizer on sale for 13.99CAD and this is my best purchase ever. If you have a super sensitive skin like me, this is the perfect moisturizer for you !! I'm so glad i bought it. I started noticing the difference within two days. Its been almost two weeks now and my skin had never looked so awesome in the last 4 years since i got acne. It stung a little in the beginning but it works really well. I apply it under my eyes too and i can literally see the lines under my eyes vanishing. They weren't cuz of age, but cuz of dryness. I even told my friend to buy it. She has a really sensitive skin with acne and she can feel the difference within a week. And thus, my search for a perfect moisturizer ends here :) Trust me, I mean everything i said !! Don't wait.. Buy it.. You will fall in love with your skin !!

As everyone mentioned, it burns really bad under my eyes. Even the whole face gets heated up, may be its too strong. It does moisturize but it too oily. Overall, I did not like it. Not buying again.
Moisturizers -Marcelle - Hydra-C ComplexE Moisturizing Gel-Cream

I have been using this cream for over a year. The reason I stick to this one is because I have a really sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have tried even natural products but they make my skin too oily, leading to acne. So, I don't want to experiment with my skin any more and I am happy sticking to this one. I find it a bit expensive, I guess $22 CAD. But its hypo allergenic and gel-bases, so its worth. One thing I would like to mention is that IT IS GREASY. Most people say its not, but trust me It is. I can never wear it while going out, or under my make-up. What I do is I apply it at night ( although it tells you to wear it in the morning). If my skin is feeling dry during the day, I apply it for a while and then rinse it before I go out. It does its job meanwhile.
