Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Length Water Resistant

Not a lot of product gets onto your lashes, looks natural but actually hasn't done a lot of lengthening for me. It's a hassle to get two mascaras now for lengthening and volume, so I wouldn't buy this particular mascara again.
Great for holding up curl (although it does dry quite crunchy and hard...) and giving volume. Length-wise... it does pretty good on the second coat. Kinda hard to remove, but it's waterproof, what am I saying. Yes the wand is a bit awkward, but you don't totally focus on that when applying mascara. The applicator brush is pretty good at separating lashes.
Really great true black color, convenient twist top, and great staying power. But when I tight line, I guess it transfers to my eyelashes and then it gets right under my eye. But I didn't notice it at all when I added waterproof mascara. Then it was just a tiny tiny bit of smudging in the corner of my eyes. But overall great if you're not tight lining.
Eye Makeup Remover -Avon - Moisture effective Eye makeup remover

It does remove eyeliner and shadow, but it does nothing for my waterproof mascara. It does alright and doesn't make my vision blurry unless I apply it using a glob from a cotton swab or something. My advice: use a Q-tip and it will be a fair product for simple makeup. If not.. it's a no-no.
Clumpy, didn't add volume AT ALL, made my lashes look THINNER (wtf? but it's true.) did not hold a curl. I'd rather go back to my can't-take-it-off Lasting Lift Mascara from Shiseido than have a hassle with this.
Primer/ Corrector -Boots - Botanics Soothing & Calming Eye Base

This would be the first time buying an eye base, as I've been using shadow and concealer as base only. I figured it is about time to get a real one. I met an MA at Target (which was interesting..) and she recommended this product. I didn't have experience with eye bases, but now that I've used it for a dance where I tried packing on color, I have to say that it did seem to work at first, but the colors didn't come out more pigmented and it was oily and left a line at my crease several times during the night. Although I was too knocked out to bother checking at the very end of the night, I did notice that my friend who had it on too (I did her makeup) had all her shadow perfectly in line on her eyelid, so that was good.... But still, it's hard to get the product out of the pot and it doesn't glide on smoothly at all, so I end up sorta having to pull at my lid. Even though this was my first eye primer and I don't have anything to compare to, I just know there's better out there. Don't get this unless you HAVE to. =/
