This is such a heavy concealer, therefore I think it shouldn't be used on the face. This feels so heavy and it doesn't even hide my dark circles, instead it just adds more attention to them!!!! This is a problem caused by the limited color selection. This is a horrible concealer, you'll end up looking cakey so beware. STAY AWAY!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush
sushiflower7 6/16/2012 11:56:00 AM
I really wanted to love this because I love their other volumn express mascaras like the falsies and the colossal. This mascara is great for those who want natural looking lashes, who are fine with no volume and length. For me this mascara was a fail because when I put on mascara I really want my lashes to stand out with volume and extreme length! I even tried curling my lashes before putting this mascara and it doesn't hold the curl very well. As far as the "gel formula" hype, it's really not that special. In fact, I didn't even notice any difference with this "new" formula. It's the same as any mascara. The brush isn't anything special either, it is flexible so it can reach even the outermost lashes well. I don't even care about the packaging...it's just a mascara in a teal bottle. It's not that pretty or metallic. It's just an opaque color, why are people obsessing over the tube color? I would not repurchase this ever again.
I was super excited when I bought this! But it disappointed me. :( This mascara does nothing but add some volume, no lengthening, or separation and to get volume you need to really pack on a lot of coats. Now, I usually wear mascara and eyeliner together, but one day I decided to skip the liner and just put on mascara. BAD IDEA!!!! Within five minutes this made my eyes itch like crazy, it was the most uncomfortable feeling ever! It also made my lashes feel hard and brittle not lush and soft. I hate it! I immediately tossed this in the trash. Never ever will I buy this again. It's a shame because this is the only mascara from this brand I've had a problem with. I love their Glam Eyes mascara, it's their best mascara. I would not recommend this mascara. Save your money and opt for a different one.
Eyeliner -Clinique - Brush-on cream liner in TRUE BLACK

This is my HG eyeliner; never ever will I stop using this. It soo pigmented and is a true rich black! It stays put all day, doesn't budge when it's dry. Let me tell you, before I even bought this I initially wanted to buy MAC's fluidline instead, but then after doing some research, everyone complained about how the MAC dried up after time. I've had my Clinique for some time now and it hasn't dried at all since I first got it. Also, the MAC one is more pricier and has less product than the Clinique! So go with the Clinique, in the end you'll be glad you did! I use mine everyday and I plan on repurchasing this until they stop making this!
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types
sushiflower7 6/14/2012 12:03:00 AM
This is the BEST moisturizer ever!!! I really can't emphasize that enough, you have to try it to believe it. First off it's got such a nice fluffy light-as-air texture and feels so incredibly smooth on your skin! My skin really benefits from this product because it's super dry and my skin just drinks this right up. It's a great pick me up; it feels so refreshing and has made an improvement in my skin and I can definitely tell. I'm so glad Philosophy invented this stuff because it literally leaves my skin soft as a baby's bottom. :)
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared
sushiflower7 6/13/2012 11:52:00 PM
I really love this mascara! I love the way my eyelashes turn out with this mascara..it delivers volume, length, and separation. I also really like how it gives me that shiny patent leather look...unlike the Covergirl Lashblast which makes my lashes look dry and brittle. This mascara doesn't clump at all! It even smells like roses, sort of. I'll admit at first I wasn't too fond of the smell but then I just got used to it. :) This is my HG!!!!! I just purchased the new mega plush lash and I'm super duper excited because Maybelline makes the best mascaras ever! Whoooo :D
