Mascara -L'Oreal - Waterproof Voluminous Carbon Black
sherrybird 4/26/2013 8:31:00 AM
It didn't add any length but added decent volume and separated nicely. It held my curl pretty well but not as well as waterproof mascaras from Maybelline and Covergirl (but it was easier to take off than those). It was more of a natural look for me, which I like, especially for going to the beach or waterpark. However, I wouldn't dare wear it anywhere with water. I had it on for 2 hours and it was already smudging under my eyes, and I was just sitting in class on a fairly cool April day. It probably wouldn't smudge as bad if you don't wear it on the bottom lashes but I still wouldn't wear it around water, which makes this mascara pretty much useless since I don't like wearing waterproof mascara everyday.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara
sherrybird 3/30/2013 12:30:00 AM
UPDATE: I found this works amazingly if you take off the extra product on the brush. When I pull the wand out of the tube, I push it against the side of the tube so one side of the brush is completely cleaned off. It gives a lot of length and volume and doesn't clump! It also holds a curl really well. I live in Canada and I've never seen this in stores, I think it's only available online for us. PREVOUS RATING: 1/5 STARS Worst mascara I've ever tried. And I've tried a lot. It was just a horrible clumpy mess. I've never worn this for more than 5 minutes since it looks so bad so I have no idea if it smudges or flakes. I've had it for about 2 months now and it's still as bad as when I first opened it. I don't know if I got a bad tube or something since most other people seem to love this. But everyone also seems to like the fabuliner and I wasn't impressed with that either.
This barely comes with any product and I feel it makes my lashes worse. It weighs down my lashes more than if I just use mascara. It didn't add length or volume. I tried it on my bottom lashes and it just made them clumpy.
I have the waterproof one. I love this, it's even better than my lash blast waterproof. It really holds a curl, separates, volumizes, lengthens, it does everything. Some people have said that it's really hard to remove but I find it removes like any other waterproof mascara, even easier than lash blast actually. I just use baby oil. Doesn't smudge or flake. I haven't tested it in water yet but I have worked out in this and it's fine. This is my new favourite waterproof mascara.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational Pink Me Up
sherrybird 3/2/2013 7:43:00 PM
I use this as a cream blush. It gives a great natural looking flush and lasts pretty long. The color is a muted mid-toned pink. On my lips, it looks okay but it settles into the lines of my lips. The color on my lips is also nothing special. But a lot of lipsticks do that, I don't know why. I exfoliate and moisturize them.
Absolutely love this. I have pretty big eyes and decently long lashes for an Asian. It fits my eyes really well. Rarely pulls out my lashes. Curls really well. I've had this for a month and there isn't even a dent in the pad yet. For anyone in Canada, Shu Uemura is sold at holt renfrew. It was $27 after tax. Kinda pricey, I've been searching online for a better price but I'd still repurchase for this price.
This is the older silver one. I think they only sell the new, dark grey colored version in North America now. I bought this on sasa.com for around $12. It curls really well and fits my eyes pretty well but it pulls out my lashes if I get too close to the base, and I don't mean like 1 eyelash, I mean 3-5 lashes at a time. I once had a small bald spot on my lashes because of this. I like the Shu Uemura better.
Love this. It holds my curl really well with most mascaras and it helps add volume too. I don't think it adds much length though, but I mostly bought it for the curl holding. I also like that it's more of a clear color than white. The packaging says that you can wear it alone for a glossy look but it looks kind of weird.. It is a bit harder to remove than just normal mascara, but still much easier than waterproof mascara. I'll definitely buy this again.
This is meant to give fuller and curlier lashes. I don't see any volumizing but it gave good length. It didn't curl my lashes but it holds a curl decently. I love the brush, I feel like it really grabs the lashes and it looks pretty cool too. I usually use this when I'm going for a more natural look. You can layer it with a volumizing mascara too for a more dramatic look but I don't know why, I don't like using multiple mascaras at once. The only thing is it smudges pretty badly on the lower lashes, although I've experienced this with other rimmel mascaras before. Doesn't smudge on top lashes. Overall, I like this, but rimmel needs to work on the smudging.
PROS: dark black nice brush okay for bottom lashes doesn't smudge, minimal flaking cute packaging CONS: doesn't hold a curl really heavy formula and a lot gathers at the tips, making my lashes tilt sideways...... not a lot of length or volume groups my lashes together One of my least favourite maybelline mascaras. Even with my shiseido nourishing mascara base, it still wouldn't hold a curl and it just looked weird tilting sideways. But I'm Asian and I have a white friend that really likes this. Works better on thicker lashes I think, it wouldn't tilt as much. I'll probably just use this for my bottom lashes and I'll keep the brush. And it has a rosey wine smell, which I don't really care about.
Lips -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart

This is my favourite lipstick. The color is so pretty, a medium pink that's kind of bright but not over the top. It looks good on my Asian skin (NC30). Lip butters are one of the only lipsticks that don't get into my lip lines and look gross. This is also really moisturizing and the lasting power is okay. It'll last around 3 hours but it comes right off if you eat like a decent sized meal. But I don't mind having to re-apply it.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Clump Crusher Water Resistant
sherrybird 2/18/2013 4:42:00 PM
Pros: great overall effect gives length, separation and volume doesn't clump (I've tried up to 4 coats, although 2-3 is usually good for me) holds curl (and I'm Asian with straight lashes) doesn't smudge or flake solid black color great brush, really grabs lashes Cons: not water resistant -_- (won't hold up against a snow fall) It gives a really similar effect to lash blast volume, which is one of my favourites. The consistency is on the drier side, which is good for holding curl. Overall, I love this. I would have given this a 5 if it was actually water resistant.
This is really average in terms of the length and volume it gives and it doesn't really hold a curl. But it's good for my bottom lashes because of the tiny brush and how it never smudges or flakes. However, it can by a bit clumpy so you have to comb out your lashes before they dry. I've found other mascaras that have good lasting power that also give a better effect.

Eyeliner -Maybelline - Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Eggplant
sherrybird 9/20/2012 7:58:00 PM
The texture isn't as creamy as I'm used to (I usually use the essence gel liner) but I still found it was super easy to apply. It's not super pigmented but that's okay. The reason I got this shade was for a more soft look. I love the colour and the brush that comes with it is actually really good. It doesn't smudge or flake at all, even on my lower lash line and I've worn this through school and work, like 13-14 hours.
