I have oily eyelids and stopped using mascara for quite awhile because of the smudges most mascaras create. I recently tried the water resistant version of this mascara and it was quite good. It lasted for a day and did not smudge. The wand is very simple and may not give fullness to sparse eyelashes. However, the non-water resistant of this is terrible. It only lasted 30 minutes. I do not recommend this type of mascara.
Miners Matte Effect lipstick is long lasting for those who are lazy to touch up. I bought the shade Wonderland (orangey-pink, muted color) and it stayed on my lips the whole day even after drinking and eating. But I found it drying, that's why you have to put lip balm before or after applying this. I do not recommend Miners Matte Effect for dry lips even though you have applied lip balm as it sucks the moisture leaving your lips dry and cracked. Hope this helps!
I am impressed with Milani's cheap yet long lasting makeup but this is not it. The packaging is decent and can withstand usual makeup kit dramas but I found its quality lacking. My eyelids are oily and it smudges after 30 minutes of application. It is worse on the waterline, so you cannot also use it for tight lines as well. It also says it's water proof but after a quick run through the rain, I had panda eyes.However, I am impressed by it's precision as I could create perfect dramatic cat eyes.
I bought mine in 17oz and it fits perfectly inside my makeup kit. The packaging is sturdy and does not have any fancy design. I have combination to oily type skin and I found this very long lasting as it helps my makeup stay longer and my face matte for at least 6-8 hours depending on the weather. I would definitely advice this to people with combination to oily skin because it is incredible, however it is not advisable for people who have big pores as it tends to settle down and makes pores visibly bigger. I hope this helps! (P.S. It doesn't have SPF protection.)
I have this in Buttery Nude. I have to say it looks natural on me and lasts long for about more than half of the day. The color and liquid consistency is great but the smell is not. It smells like Clay dough.It's not really unpleasant but I find it weird to have smelled it from a bottle of lipstick. Bonus: It's also cruelty free!
I have combination to oily skin especially on my eyelids and I have found that Milani Infinite have stayed all day without flaking unlike most liquid eyeliners. I even don't retouch because of its intensive pigmentation. I ran along all day and found out that after all the sweat, the eyeliner did not run off and stayed in place. It didn't make me look like a panda wearing a skirt. It's like a temporary tattoo on my lids. The problem I find in this product is that it dries off about 25 seconds after you apply it. I have to quickly even it out before it dries because when it does it doesn't budge. I have to apply a makeup remover if I have to change it. But overall, if you have combination to oily skin this is the perfect eyeliner for your because for me it is!
I can't believe this eyeliner! It is waterproof and glides smoothly like kohl. It doesn't smudge like most kohl, gel and pencil liners. It smudges so little that it gives this sexy look on the eye. It also last all day on my oily lids. But it is impossible to take off. You need a tough oil based remover for this one.

I hate a strong hatred for this eyeliner as it smudges easily and its very hard to take off. I have oily lids and even with a primer it doesn't stay very long about 2 hours and I look like a panda!

Just don't use this product when you have oily lids even with a primer. Trust me. It'll smudge after 3 minutes (I really did time this).
This product alone is not long lasting as it melts after a few hours against heat and cold. Pair it with a lipstain, it is a different story. It enhances the durability of the stain, gives it a lovely subtle gloss which is perfect for day time.
I am sensitive to odors and I don't want this because of its awful smell. Other than it a perfect gloss for day and night. Just be careful when applying it during the day since it might be too much.
I like this snail cream very much as it gives me a dewy glow and helps my skin fight against wrinkles (even at an early age). It rejuvenates, moisturizes and is almost a miracle product. But sadly it does not have SPF. I would recommend this for skincare night treatment to make it fully functional as it penetrates the skin overnight. This does not break me out. However, my Caucasian friend used this and she broke out. I am half Asian so I think it is more suitable with Asian skin (after all Mizon is an asian brand).
I really like products with a light coverage since it gives space for my skin to breathe, and this is one of the products I recommend for lazy girl who does not want put on foundation or bb cream. It is not much of a product which stay on, on a long time but this will do for about a day and a half.

This product does not make me break out and control my oily areas. It covers my blemishes such as acne scars and visible pores. It can act as a concealer or a foundation with much less coverage. Perfect for outdoors as it is light and does not cake. It also gives a considerable SPF. If you like to exercise with a little makeup on, this is the right one. I exercise for about 45 mins a day and it still there. It gives me the post workout glow with a smooth face.

Lips: Moisturize before and after applying this product. It holds onto the lips that it would make your lips dry over time. Its durability is very strong and still clings to my lips even though I already ate and drank several times. If you don't to got bare faced while exercising this is a good product. Cheeks: Most blush powders, gels and stains are gone at half day but this is not one of them. It lasted all day without reapplication.
