Let me start by saying this was my first ever liquid eyeliner, and I definitely prefer the natural look opposed to really harsh eyeliner-- I bought it in brown. I LOVE this eyeliner! It took me a couple of tries at first since I ad never used any kind of liquid eyeliner before, but once I got used to it it was SO easy!! It isn't so pigmented that making a mistake is s a tragedy, and it doesn't really smudge (maybe a little if you rub at it, but not really). Plus, it comes off easily at night with just water, so there's no need to scrub at your eyes or wake up with raccoon eyes in the morning. Now if you are looking for an intense dark color, this isn't for you. If you want to make a thin, natural looking line, then you should really get this! I find that I can layer it to get a darker color if I need, but i rarely want a harsh look. I have very oily eyelids, and I experience little to no smudging with this. Plus, its dirt cheap!! I think this is my HG everyday eyeliner :)
I really love this foundation. Some people have been saying that it looks unnatural and cakey, and they hate the texture. I have the exact opposite to say. It looks wonderful on my skin, and never cakes. It stays smooth all day and lasts for ever on my VERY oily skin. I personally love the texture, but its different with everyone. I don't apply this with my fingers, however. Whenever this is applied with my fingers, it DOES look cakey and unnatural. I simply take a kabuki brush (Ecotools baby kabuki in my case. Not the retractable one, but the one that comes in a set) and dip it into the foundation very lightly. You can swirl it a little, but just try to get a thin layer over the very top of the bristles. Gently wipe the brush over areas of your face, then buff it out with the brush. I layer it until I get good coverage. Then I take a concealer brush (Ecotools again) and put a little bit more foundation on blemishes, redness, scarring, and dark circles. If I still need to conceal anything more, I dot on Maybelline Superstay concealer and pat-blend it out with my finger. Then, I set it all with a translucent powder. The result is an absolutely flawless, smooth, natural-matte finish. I'm a teen, so I don't want to look caked on with makeup, and this works great for me. It looks so natural, and people are always commenting on how good my skin looks, not my foundation. I have moderate acne, and this foundation does not break me out. By the end of the day my oily skin has started to peek through, and I look dewy, not oily :D All in all, I love this. My only complaints would be that it can look REALLY orange if you go even one shade too dark. I thought I would be shade 3 light, but I ended up with shade 2 since they didn't have 3 in stock. I was lucky, because shade 2 is perfect for me. Its a little tiny bit darker than my skin tone. I still use it though, because it gives a little warmth to my skin tone even if it is not a perfect match. I'm so pale in the first place, I love how it adds some color to me. I am fairly tan everywhere else on my body, so it looks more natural than my actual skin-tone does on my face. Also, make sure you prime and moisturize your skin, even if you have the oiliest of skins! It can cling to dry spots, so this helps. The moisturizer makes it not look cakey, and it ends up giving more coverage if i use moisturizer and primer. Just in case you tried this before and didn't like it, you should note they recently came out with a new formula. The new one is smoother and less cakey. Good Luck!
Oh. my. god. this is amazing. don't listen to the other people who say its horrible! this concealer covers everything from acne to under eye circles. It leaves my horrible skin flawless, and a little goes a long way. I am NOT some person who says they have horrible acne and only has 3 pimples. I have right now 10 pimples, and this covers up everything. my skin also have very bad redness, and just a little dot of this covers it up like a charm. i can actually wear this and not need foundation! thats how well it works! so if you're like me with horrible skin, use this concealer. its the ONLY high end product I use, and its well worth the money. It also covers up under eye circles very easily, one really small dot on my finger covers both eyes and eyelids. very good consistency, creamy, lightweight, heavy coverage, long wear, i could go on and on. 5 lippies. EDIT I ended up changing concealers... I know I said it was amazing, but I didn't know much about concealers. It doesn't last all day. It clings to dry spots easily, and the shade I got (light) ended up being orange on my skin, I just didn't know it :P You can try it, but it looks cakey easily in my opinion. It does offer high coverage though, and dries to a very powdery finish if you want that. I now use maybelline superstay concealer. It gives just as good coverage, but had a more natural look and matches me better. Never cakes, and always lasts forever. 3 lippies for clinique.
