May work for some people, but not for me. It smells terrible..I think it is supposed to smell floral, but it smells more like bug repellent. It does NOT hold a curl at all! I curl my lashes using Shu's eyelash curler before applying mascara and as soon as I apply this, the curl STRAIGHTENS out. So unless you have naturally curled lashes, this probably won't work for you. This does not make my lashes look any fuller even though it claims to be a volumizing mascara. The only good thing about this mascara is that it does a decent job at lengthening.
Okay so the brush is super soft, which is great. It feels nice on the skin and is great to use for mineral or loose powder blushes. However, when it comes to applying pressed blushes, this brush does not deposit color on the cheeks very well.
I like this product. The pigmentation overall is great for a drugstore eyeshadow..I especially like the 3rd color down in the middle section, which is a taupe with silver undertones. The two purple shades are very neutral (the purple has okay pigmentation, the wine color has brown instead of red undertones). So if you are looking for vibrant purples, this palette isn't for you. The shadows are a bit on the powdery side, so make sure to tap off the excess shadow before applying to prevent fall out. I love using the champagne colors on the right side of the palette on the lid because it really brightens up the eye area. My complaint is the packaging- it takes up way too much space and is somewhat bulky. Not very attractive packaging, but overall good for the price :)
Eye Makeup Remover -Flirt - See-Ya Eye Makeup Remover

This product does not remove waterproof mascara very well. It did remove eyeshadow though and did not cause my eyes any irritation. I would not recommend this product if you wear a lot of eyeliner and/or waterproof mascara...you are better off using Neutrogena's eye makeup remover which is a lot less expensive than the Flirt one.

Not very pigmented, takes a lot of pressure to get enough product on the brush, barely shows up on the eyelid. There are better drug store eyeshadows in my opinion.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner
symmetrical 6/18/2009 4:02:00 AM
Ok, so I bought this product because Wet 'n' Wild was on sale at Rite Aid and I needed a new liquid eyeliner...I got home and tried this on and it immediately started burning the skin where I applied the liner. The burn went away in a few minutes, but still..that's gotta be NOT good for the skin around the eyes AT ALL.. So I left the product on my eyes for a few more hours, just to test it because the pain did go away. The staying power is not bad, it did not flake on me (reason for 2 lippies instead of 1). However, when I removed the eyeliner with makeup remover, the skin were I applied the liner was red and somewhat puffy. I would not recommend this product for those with sensitive skin.
The price is good, but the product ..not so much. This flaked on me within 2 hours. The applicator is OK, not the easiest to work with. Do not purchase this if you are looking for a longwear liquid eyeliner!!
I have very pigmented lips and a skin tone with yellow undertones and this works for me. Moisturize your lips beforehand. I would not wear it alone though..I always top it off with a clear gloss for a perfect nude lip! If I wanted a true matte lip though, this wouldn't work for me because I always have to wear gloss with it.

I agree with the other reviewers that the olive green color isn't very pigmented and doesn't come on well at all (minus one lippie for that reason). HOWEVER, the other two colors are gorgeous! They are quite shimmery, but definitely still wearable. I love the packaging as well..a cute little compact with a mirror and dual-end applicator. Definitely give this a shot if you like shimmery eyeshadows!
I like this eye kohl by MAC..the color glides on effortlessly..like butter! The black is intense so this is great for smokey eye looks. The price is alright, but this is MAC we're talking about. It does last me for a few months, maybe 5-6, so not many complaints in that area. My only complaint is that it smudges VERY easily, especially on the waterline.
The texture of these shadows, like another reviewer said, grainy. The pigmentation is decent. The two white colors, in my opinion, are pretty horrible. The two decent shades are the pink and plummy black. What I do like about this quartet is the packaging. As with all Hard Candy products, the packaging is very cute. I found this for only $4, so I guess I shouldn't complain seeing as it retails for $28. Would I buy it again for $4? Maybe. For $28? Definitely not.
This eyeliner is not creamy at all. It hurts my eyes because I have to tug in order to get the color out..I would not recommend this product!

I love this eyelash curler! Other ones have pinched the skin on the sides of my eye but this one fits perfectly. You can't beat this for the awesome price
