Concealers -Eve Pearl - Dual Salmon Concealer & Treatment

I bought this from a home shopping network, can't remember which one but I love this stuff! I am 56 and have started to get some circles/bags under my eyes. I have tried many concealers but none of them worked as well as this. Very creamy, easy to use, covers my circle/bags beautifully. The trick is to put it under the bags of your eyes where the "dent" is, not on the bag itself. I think it works great, yes it is expensive, but if it works, I don't mind paying more!!
I was pleasantly surprised how well this went on and made my skin look flawless! Even covered my very red cheeks!!! I usually never buy drugstore brands because they usually don't work for me, I use Mac studio tech foundation and ran out. Had to buy something quick until my Mac foundation arrived. I was very impressed with this but, you need to buy a shade darker than you usually do because they go on lighter than they look!!! Love this and I will definitely buy again, I actually like it better than Mac, my all time favorite makeup brand!! Can't believe I said that because I am such a Macaholic!!!!
I love this pencil and the way it brings out the green in my eyes. Unfortunately, everytime I wear it, my eyelids swell up and itch. Something about purple in pencils that just irritate my eyes! Still trying to find a purple liner that won't irritate my eyelids!
I have Blackend Coffee and this is a very flattering liner for hazel eyes, really brings out the green! To make this last on top of your eyelids, put a dark brown shadow over the line with a short stiff angled brush. This gives you excellent staying power and smudge underneath your eyes with a smudger. Really makes your eyes stand out!!!!
I bought this about 2 years ago and never tried it. I was getting bored with the same old colors and decided to try it out. I put arena from lid to brow, brun in the crease and fab and flashy over arena and got a great eye look! I was in the Mac store to buy some products and the MU said your eyes look gorgeous, did you do them yourself or e did one of our makeup artist do it??? Well, at my age, it is rare that I get any compliments so that made my day!!!!
Bought this online after reading the reviews here. At first I thought it was going to be too glitzy and frosty but it goes on like a yellowy gold with shimmer. What a gorgeous color! It really brings out the gold and green in Hazel eyes. I put allover my lid up to the brow bone, I meant to grab Brun or Espresso for the crease but grabbed Print by mistake and what a pretty combination! Used dark chocolate eyeliner by clinique and my eyes popped. Definitely worth adding to your collection of shadows!.

As my tan is fading out, I always have trouble finding an in between shade to get me through until winter,. I usually use high end makeup but went to Walmart and picked this foundation. You can not beat the price!! It's hard to tell a color match when you can't try ithem on in the store so I picked 2 colors and returned the one that didn't match. No.. 300 was a pretty good match. This stuff makes your face look flawless and smooth!!! It did stay on throughout the day, did have to blot around t-zone just a little bit. I would defintely buy again, I even like this better than my high end foundation!!! Highly recommended!!!!
I bought this in NYC at Macy's. I use it as a base color with Cordouroy in the crease and boy, does that make your eyes pop!! It really brings out the green in hazel eyes where people notice your eye color not the eyeshadow! Love this eyeshadow.
This eyeshadow is the best! I use this with Arena as a base and this in the crease. Stays on forever, does not crease. It is a dark brown color, may be too dark for fair skin people but you can control that by using a brush to apply to crease. Would definitely buy again!!
I like this shadow, I was surprised by alot of negative reviews. It is very versatile. It's a brown/gray color so you can wear brown and it looks brown, wear black and it looks more gray. It looks great with Arena shadow or Wheat as a base color and Brun in the crease. It blends pretty easily with shadows that have some shimmer in them. I would defintely buy again!!
I bought this at the Mac store in NY about a year ago. I only used it a few times and put it away. A few months ago, I thought I would try it again in the crease with arena as a base shadow. Wow! It really brought out the green in my hazel eyes. A very pretty combinatiion. This eyeshadow stays on forever. I highly recommend it!
Concealers -Clinique - City Cover Compact concealer

I have always had trouble finding a concealer that does not look "white" under my eyes! I finally found one that not only blends like a dream,does not look white and you only need a tiny bit on your finger to cover up under both eyes and in the inner corner of the eye., I am 52 and this covers perfectly, The only concealer that covered the darkness in the corner of my eyes not to mention some slight bags under the eye. I highly recommend this for the "mature" women!
Clinique really improved their eyeshadows. Since they changed from High Impact to Color Surge, the colors are much more pigmented and stay on me forever!! I have the teddy bear quad, like mink eyeshadow duo and posh squash which I love. Now that I have somewhat of a tan, the posh sqash colors look even better. The prices are reasonable compared to Lancome and Estee Lauder shadows. I highly recommend them!!!
This concealer does cover circles but it sure is messy to apply. A little goes a long way. No matter how little came out of the tube, it was thick and messy. I tried my fingers and a concealer brush but I still way too much on. If you have the time to spend to get the right amount out(good luck)it was just too time consuming for me, it did cover very well but unfortunatly it took a lot of work to blend it just right!

I bought this because I was tired of liquid foundation and powdering and wanted something quicker. I love this stuff. I took back the perfectly real foundation because I needed more coverage and it made my face oily. This compact goes on nice, easy to blend and so quick to use. It dries to a powder finish. I have the warm buff which is perfect for me. It covered my "red cheeks" lasted a long time and does not give me a greasy face by midday. Highly recommend it!! Sheryl
