i just bought this product. coverage is ok, good for running to the store etc..nothing crazy...makes my face feel really smooth which i like. the color is a bit pinkish, would prefer if it's more neutral toned or even a little yellow-er...the funny thing is, after a few hours of putting this on, my face gets soo itchy around my jawline and i'll have to wash it off. this is my third day using it and i haven't broken out from it yet. but does any of you know what ingredient is in it that is making my face itch? please send me a message if you do. i don't want to waste this product as i like how it makes my face smooth, but if it continues to make me itch, i'll have to toss it.
Blush -Jane Iredale - Pure Pressed Blush in Whisper

I got tons of compliments when I wore this. People tell me I look really happy and glowing. But I only wear this when I feel bright, happy and cheerful. It's kinda expensive and it breaks easily. My boyfriend dropped it and it shattered into a million pieces and couldn't be saved. I have now a little small chunks left in the blush case.
it does its job not great staying power however. i apply it on my waterline. hardly use it and probably will last me a lifetime. haha.
I don't understand the reviews here. It applies well on my hand but NOT my eyes. It just tugs at it and its hard for the color to go on. Maybe I just got a bad one. I have it in Espresso. Fret not though, I use it now as my eyebrow pencil now instead.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer (all)

this eyeliner glides on so easily. i love it. i like how there is a sharperner too but i dont use it often. the smudger brush is too rubbery and dont work that well but oh well i still love this eyeliner!! application is fast easy no mess just everything i'm looking for.
Nice packaging, so small can fit anywhere in my purse. Haha. I bought it for only US$3 on sale, so for the price its not a bad product. THe brush helps comb my eyebrows in place the gel however, I don't think it did much to gel them together as after a while I noticed that they are messy a little?
It works for me so I'm not complaining! :D Helps my eyeshadow adhere better!! YAY!
This is such a good blush. It's buildable for when you want it dramatic or subtle. Probably not good on tan or dark skin as when I got darker from summer I couldn't really notice it on my skin. But now that I am getting fairer again, it's a nice blush and give me a perfect flush. It also has a little shimmer in it which is nice. Perfect color for fair to medium skintones.

I have this in electric blue. Such a beautiful color. Where can I find such a color? But it's a pity that it made my eyes itch. It gives me volume too which is good.
I have this in Black Plus. The black is really black. The light grey and darker grey included are also a bonus as I can mix and match and blend whenever I don't feel like wearing a pure black eyeliner. Easy to apply. I have now for years and years and its stil not finished and dried up unlike LOREAL hip cream liner?
For one of those days where you just don't want to look all made up. It gives a nice flush to your skin and cheeks.
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Enriched w/ Minerals

It lasts and did not break me out. Evens out my skintone. You have to get used to the thick texture. Suits my skintone I have it in 200. I used to use Mac Studio Fix fluid but it emphasizes all my dry patches though it gives good coverage. For the price & quality of this RImmel foundation, yes I will buy it again. It's medium coverage but that is all I need.
Bought this to use after foundation, to give my face a matte finish. It does the job alright. It just made my face look cakey EVEN when I used a fluffy powder brush really lightly. And it broke me out too. The matte effect lasted 2 hours and it gets a bit oily in some areas, I will just blot it with blotting sheets instead of applying more product. What I absolutely dislike, is when I wear it to a bar/fancy clubs, I look at myself in the mirror and its so obvious there's powder on my face. It made my face look so much whiter compared to my body. In daylight, it looks fine which is it matches my skintone albeit a bit cakey. Probably not good for photoshoots either. I don't know, just my experience & opinion.
Mascara -Maybelline - Define a lash volume WATERPROOF
thkam 7/26/2009 10:02:00 PM
I bought this when it was BOGO. Don't remember how much but definitely less than $10 for 2 mascaras. It's a really natural mascara that does define your lashes. It makes my lashes look really long and gives a little volume, not crazy volume though. Just what I want for everyday wear. But I think you have to know how to properly apply any mascara it takes practise.
