*Physicians Formula Eye booster eyeliner + serum* I purchased this a week ago from walmart. I'm a huge fan of the japanese tattoo 24/7 liner, its amazing and very long lasting. I was so curious about this one because its easy to find and buy. plus no shipping fee! PACKAGING: It really does remind of japanese liners, similar to this. Its a sleek silver pen like wand with a brush tip applicator. I personally like it. EYELINER REVIEW This tip can draw a thin to thick line depending on how you work it with your hand. I used this liner thinly to see how long it can last. The product comes out fine it hasn't dried up or has stopped coming out of the tube. I wore this liner before going to work at 10:00 and then went home and I look a nap (1 hour) and followed by going to work for 6 hours. Total of almost 20 hours with the liner on. I did this for a whole week. The staying power is great, almost as great as the japanese liner. If you have oily lids, like a great deal, it may not stay as long. Removing the liner was a breeze, I didn't have to scrub my lashline in anyway. It does make your lashes appear thicker and fuller depending on how much liner you use, the lash boosting part I cannot say because I have not experienced any growth with in the week of using this product. I would repurchased due to the formula, its long lasting and not as expensive has my japanese liner. I hope this review was helpful :) 7-11-11 It's been a couple of months since I used this eyeliner. Its almost dried out, but not yet since I do not use it everyday. I have notice my lashes being longer than they were before. I believe this product was the contributor to that result. :D
Polishes -New York Color - In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish

**N.Y.C. In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish** I purchased this nail polish by fate, funny huh? I was at the makeup aisle and I was in-between Rimmel and N.Y.C. My co-worker was wearing a color by rimmel called steel grey & it was the color was trying to find, then I saw that N.Y.C. had a dupe, YES. The color I ended up buying is called Park Ave & i saved myself $2 :P but hey, I'm a college student, I can use that $2 to feed myself. PACKAGING: It meets my standards. Its simple, round, and the brush, I really like, its actually big, almost like the OPI brush. On 6/10 fingers, one swipe will cover the whole nail. My nails are small btw. NAIL POLISH: This color is amazing, I recommend two coats. When this polish dries, its shiny as if you applied a top coat but you obviously did not. However i do recommend a top coat to insure that the polish does not chip because w/o a top coat with this polish will chip. REPURCHASE? I will next time I go to the drugstore, I am planning on getting a few pinks and maybe a black.
**E.L.F. Studio Lipstain** I purchased four colors: first date, fashionista, lady luck, heartbreaker, (in order from favorite to least favorite.) I know everyone is going to say this isn't a lipstain because they think a lipstain has to be watery, but I don't think that is true. However, I would like to say I think this lipstain is different. It reminds me of a slick dry lipstick, once its dry it somewhat is like a lipstick but without the shine or moisture. I like it honestly, I mean is there any other lipstain that comes with a lipgloss? This is the only one so far that i've seen so that gets a plus. This product isn't as long-lasting as you would want, but I would think it would be great for dates and special occasions because unlike a lipstick, this will not transfer a great deal of product. I know my beau hates getting pink smudges on his lips & cheeks. How I use it: I dab the stain on the middle part of the upper and lower lip, I try to use as little product as possible because I do not prefer a great amount of this product on my lips & I enjoy light color on the lips. Then I use my ring finger to blend it on each part of the lip, usually the drying time is faster due to this method. I would then apply lip balm and sometimes the gloss provided. I prefer the lip balm mostly. OVERALL PACKAGING: Its a doubled ended product, lipstain in one and clear lipgloss in the other. Now, I will say that the packaging is also cheap, in a way. I had dropped on of my lipstain before and it left a tear like cut, in which made the product leak out slowly. So overall, its not as durable as you would like it to do. CLEAR GLOSS REVIEW: Its very runny and the ingredients are very simple and cheap. However, its does give a nice shine and some moisture to the lips. Staying power is very short, so retouches will have to happen from time to time. COLOR REVIEWS: FIRST DATE: This color is my absolute, I cannot live without it. IIt is more of a coral pink I would say. It reminds me of a MAC blush from their beach collection 2010, the blush was called Hipness, but in actuality the color is slightly darker. This is great spring/summer color. Now, I am usually an NC40 for MAC and sometimes a little bit more tan, so this color works for me very well. There are also some traces of glitter in this lipstain, but I don't notice it once it's on my lips, I only notice it when it is settled in the tube. The glitter is gold reflects. FASHIONISTA: This color straight up pink. I would think this color would suite any women of any age. When I look at the this color right now, it its not bright pink like the image shown. Its also very versatile. It's a nice touch of color for the office or any kind of work, but its also a great color of an evening dinner. No glitter in this one, its very matte. LADY LUCK: I would like to say this color is like an almost rusty red. Its matte, no shimmer or reflects. This color would be the choice of my mother, on me it makes me look old in my opinion. Not once of my favorites, but ask for my mother, she is in her early 50's but she looks like she is in her mid 40's. Her skin is NC20-25. HEART BREAKER: The worst color ever, in my opinion. Its a nude color and also kind of pink in a way. It matches my lip color exactly, which is the reason why I dislike it. Its matte and no glitter or reflects, It would look nice on skin lighter than mine. *note: I did not read any reviews on this product until after I posted the review. Thank you.*
**WET N WILD MEGALASH CLINCAL SERUM & MASCARA REVIEW.** I purchased this product last week at walgreens for $6.99 +tax and I have been using it everyday so far & it has almost been 2 weeks. It included a serum & a mascara. Honestly I wasn't super excited for the mascara as I was for the serum. PACKAGING: Its white and blue, I honestly thought it was very nice & it looks sleek. Both products had the same white and blue outer packaging. It also has lines on it, like a syringe? It doesn't look as cheap compared to the other mascara packaging this company has came out with. AMOUNT OF PRODUCT: You receive o.17fl of the serum & 0.27fl of the mascara. For $6.99, its understandable due to the fact that is product was inexpensive. MASCARA REVIEW: The wand is a bristled type and it's not flimsy, but it is flat in shape. My only problem with this mascara is the rubber stopper that squeezes the bristles as you pull out the wand. It can easily pop up from the tube and not get the job done. Also it wastes product in the process. However, this does give a decent amount of volume, but not the desired length in my opinion. If i were to compare this the L'oreal beauty tubes mascara w/ lash serum, I would say the L'oreal mascara would be the better choice. SERUM REVIEW: I cannot get over the scent it gives, its strong to me, but maybe not to others. The applicator is similar to a eyeliner brush. The instructions that are included are not very detailed to say the least, it doesn't give you a technique on the application the product. How i use it? I brush the serum on my lash line and then my lashes. For contact users, it does burn but very very lightly in the eyes, idk why. Now, since it has been almost 2 weeks since I have been using this product, my lashes have gotten surprisingly longer but not dramatically. It grew them out maybe less than 1/4 of a cementer. I have semi-long and thin lashes. I haven't seen much of thickening in this product yet, but I have to wait another two weeks to fully see the affects. I hope this was helpful & I will be posting/posted some pictures.
