Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder

Also bought this during the 50% off event! Its a must get! The packaging is very sleek. Careful not to store it upside down, it was a little messy the very first time I used it. I used Bobbi Brown winter tinted moisturizer as my foundation that night and it was extra dewey. TOO SHINEY. I used the HD powder to set it and it was amazing! The first dab had a little too much powder (stored upside accidently), so the white powder was visible initially but blends in with little effort. You just dab with the little poof. After this, I do my usually MAC skin-finish natural in both medium and medium plus to control the coverage, then finish off with a MAC skinfinish Soft and Finish for a highlight and shimmer. The powder completely offset the dewey/oily look and it was instantly matte. BEST $3 I've EVER SPENT. WILL BUY INDEFINITELY.

I havn't been using this product for more than a week and I already notice my eyelashes are more curly and a teeeny bit longer. My eyelashes are short and stick straight but I see some definition now. Can't wait to see how it goes! I even apply them on my eyebrows. No sensitivity. Well, hardly.. it doesn't make my eyes Red like the person below said though. Just sometimes my eyes feel a little sore after I've used eyemakeup remover on it. Perhaps just too much activity going on there that day.. Will review again in a week!
Great for under eye circles. Covers most of the black and I just dust some powder on top to set. It seriously lasts all day. TIP: for those who are complaining about the packaging, when you are turning it.. turn it until it spews out. Then, to get more, BEND THE SILICONE WAND and more product should come out. Anything left in the silicone wand should come out and its great for finishing touches! I find that this prevents it from coming out when I'm not around and I don't get the dry blob the next day. It didn't cover too well on my chin blemishes though. And the amount of product does concern me a little for the price but great nonetheless!
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink

I bought this as a set on Cathay Pacific so it came with both Black and Brown gel liners and a brush. I use brown everyday as I find the black is very black and looks too harsh. It doesn't give it a liquid liner look which also looks very harsh. The only complaint is the brush they provided was crap. I use a slanted eye liner for this.
Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Rose Shimmerbrick Shimmer Brick Compact

I bought the exclusive they had on Cathay Pacific so my shimmer brick also came with a lip palette, and lip brush & blush brush. It was a good deal in general. Mine also shattered in my suitcase and now i have blush particles all over my lip particles. The good thing is that they blush piece is on the bottom and lip piece is on the top so it doesn't get too messy. I love the pink shimmer it leaves on my cheeks!! I use it mostly as a blush and I use the lighter parts as a highlighter.
This is the first eye product I've bought. I didn't really have a comparison until reading your reviews. I noticed the same thing! My dark circles didn't disappear :(. They are still super dark however I noticed the puffiness has gone done. $50 was OK for me to pay for eye gel but I didn't realize it was only 20ml. It has the exact same amount as their samples ==". I'll keep using it for now and wearing concealer. After this, I'll try a new one.
