HOW TO USE VASELINE TO REMOVE WATERPROOF MASCARA So being a teenager, I don't have a lot to spend on makeup, especially if its something to remove it. I didn't have makeup remover, and my mom bought me waterproof mascara. I tried olive oil. IT TOOK ME FOREVER (well, you know what I mean) to get all the mascara off. And if blurred my vision. Not cool. THE BEST WAY TO USE THIS IS TO COAT YOUR LASHES WITH THIS PRODUCT Seriously. I tried it alone before, and swiped it with a cotton pad and it didn't work. Then a few days later, I tried it again, but this time I coated the hell out of my lashes (with waterproof mascara underneath of course) and left it there for about 10 minutes or so. Afterwards, I wet a cotton pad, then slowly wiggled it through my lashes. IT WORKED! Of course it doesn't work as quickly compared to using an eye makeup remover, but it does the trick if you don't want to spend on a bottle every month. While its soaking, walk around, do stuff. The key is letting it soak onto your lashes and loosen the waterproof mascara. Its so effective too! This does wonders for removing eyeshadows as well. Just be mindful that it does leave a thin layer of residue, but it shouldn't be a big deal if you wash your face afterwards anyways. Super cheap! And a jar will last you for a looooooong time.
Many say this is comparable to Kat Von D's tattoo concealer, and it's a cheaper alternative for it. But, I hate the fact that there's only 3 shades; light, medium, and tan. I picked light since the medium seemed too dark on me, and light looked to match my skin tone. Unfortunately, it got to look pasty white/ivory when out of the tube, while inside it looks like it would have more warmth and color. This is truly a heavy duty concealer, as it states. Long wearing, won't transfer onto clothing. The pencil is also nice for blemishes and pimples. My biggest complaint would just be the color selection. I mean 3 shades?? I think I'd have to mix the medium and light just to get my right shade. You only need a TINY amount. Imagine the head of a Bobby pin...if it's that size, you've got too much to cover both your under eye circles and Pimples. For $6 this is pretty good, but if you have to custom mix 2 shades, amounting to $12 dollars, you're better off spending a few more bucks for a high end concealer like mac, benefit, or clinique.
I was given this blush for Christmas from a friend. $$$: Its pretty expensive, especially since I don't splurge on blushes. I heard so much hype about this, I wanted to love it too. But I didn't. COLOR: It's WAY TOO SHIMMERY. I swear, there's more glitter than actual color on here. I had to put multiple layers on just to get some color. I have light to light-medium skin, with very yellow undertones. I looked like a disco ball. I like the packaging, it has a cute mirror and it is very sturdy. I don't have to worry about it breaking in case I drop it. For the price, I'm glad I didn't buy it for myself. I exchanged it at sephora for Tarte's Cheek Stain in Flush. And I LOVE IT. Sorry Nars, you just didn't live up to the hype.
i hate this mascara. it clumped like crazy and it stuck to my eyelash curler when i curled it. DO NOT BUT THIS PRODUCT. unless you want to waste your money.

This a pretty ok, average product. I got this for $3 today because it was 75% off. My color was in M05. it was a bit darker for my color, and it didnt really cover the bags under my eyes.
THE BEST LIP BALM EVER. it has a minty taste and tingly feeling when applied. it also makes your breath smell good too!
This is a pretty ok, basic foundation. it is very light, and doesn't feel "caked on". but it is not good for covering scars, pimples (it only lessens the redness of it, but then it looks like a bump, rather than a pimple), and i had to pack on A LOT to cover my under eye circle. and it does tend to dry on my skin through the day, so i reccomend wearing a moisturizer before you put this on. i dont know what all the hype was about, but its nothing spectacular. it does last quite a while though. it may not look like it'll even last a month, but you dont need to put much on for full coverage. also i recommed putting a finishing powder or translucent powder over because it does tend to smear in the beginning.

This is a pretty good product. i've bought it twice in BLUSHING NATURAL and its the first blush that actually looks natural on me. its very sheer, so you do need to put a little bit more than usual for the color to show. but its always better to add on, rather than take some off because there's waaay too much. the only thing i dont like about this product is the shimmer. dont get me wrong, i love shimmer and glitter. just not in a blush. its not THAT noticable unless you're really close to another person, or if you're under the sun, because then you can see the shimmer. other than that its great! it really blends in my skin well and looks natural.

this mascara does NOTHING FOR ME! really really bad. the wand looks like one of those sample wands that you use at macy's or something. the color isnt that great either. i had to apply like 5 coats (not kidding) just to see some lenght! and you can gurantee that there was clumps. it takes a loooooong time to dry. and the color is barely visible. victoria's secret is ripping us off with this product ladies. my advice, dont buy this if: -you have short, straight eyelashes -you have dark lashes -you basically have barely visible lashes -you want lenght -you want volume -you want curl -you want color -you dont want clumps buy this product if: -you have nice long, curly light eyelashes this mascara may work for some people, but for the rest of us, i highly recommend you NOT TO BUY THIS PRODUCT. its a waste of money. go buy another one of their eyeshadows instead.
This mascara does a pretty decent job. i have short, thin and straight eyelashes, and after abou 2 or 3 coats, my eyelashes started becoming visibly longer. you should curl your lashes before though.. and another thing i like is that after i apply it, then curl it again, the mascara doesnt come off on the curler. not that much at least. if this works on my scrawny eylashes, it should have no problem performing the same way with others.
I have short, thin, straight eyelashes. this mascara did NOTHING FOR ME. it might work for people who just want to darken their lashes or aready have long and thick eyelashes. but if you have little, thin eyelashes.... THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOR YOU. it took out my curl, and clumps after 3 coats or so. not the best. works for some, but not for me.
