I LOVE this eyeliner! It works better than my Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencils and the MAC Technakohl liner I've tried. I've had this in black and brown. I won't really review the black since I haven't used it in a year (I prefer brown eyeliners these days... I feel like it's more natural for school). At that time, I only used eyeliner on my waterline, it lasted 3-4 hours on my waterline without smudging and giving me raccoon eyes, it just fades away. Also, it is a nice black. The brown one, I only use on my top lash line. I really like the color and it's just super easy to put on. Even when I'm running late, I can quickly put it on in 2-3 minutes... just close my eyes, line, and I'm done. It lasts pretty much your whole day. The only time it doesn't is when you always rub your eyes, that's when it'll slowly fade and only last 7-9 hours. I've had it on for almost 16 hours lol. I put it on at 6:30am and take it off around 10:30-11:15pm. It's only around $5 so it's an amazing deal! I never use the sharpener btw. I recommend this over the Maybelline Master Drama and the high-end ones I mentioned in the beginning.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof

I LOVE this mascara! I'm 15 so this is the 6th mascara I've tried and it's absolutely the BEST (so far)! I've already started using my 2nd tube of it. I like it waaay better than its "sister" Volum' Express The Falsies Flared (waterproof). I've gone through 2 tubes of that then I finally decided to try this one since they're the same price, under or around $6 (depending where you purchase it). It gives me really nice volume and length as well. I curl my lashes then BAM! Thicker, longer lashes. I'm Filipino (Asian), my lashes aren't super thick or super long. I'd say it's pretty average because it isn't sparse either. I RECOMMEND this product to anyone! I don't think you could completely hate this product. I'm in the US so the packaging's different from the picture above. I don't have much to say about the packaging, yellow isn't my favorite color lol, but it's alright.
I'm late posting this review lol, but whatever. I got this the day after Christmas so it was 75% off (super affordable). I got it because of that, I got 1 fragrance mist and 2 body lotions. I always get one body mist and 2 lotions for any scent, since my lotions run out faster than the spray (I only have a teeny tiny bit of spray left after finishing the second bottle of lotion). I LOVED this scent, it was my signature scent pretty much almost this entire year. I don't really mind that it got discontinued though, because I'm ready to move on. I liked how fresh it smells and it lasts the WHOLE day! It dies down to a somewhat fruity scent, little vanilla, tiny bit powdery, but it's sweet ya know? That's what I really liked about it. If it came back, I would repurchase just to use it here and there, but not as my signature scent. I know signature scents are supposed to be like your GO-TO scent like forever or for years, but I'm in high school so I feel like each year, I'm into different scents. Some people don't like the packaging but I sort of like it, of course I'm a teen, so my view on it is different. I can understand why older people don't like the packaging though.
I've been using this product for almost a year and I LOOOOVE it! I have acne-prone skin...... I had bad acne, especially for a 13 year old (I'm 14 now). I started having zits when I was 10 :( then it sorta got worse. I tried ProActive, Acne Free, Murad, then Philosophy. I got introduced to this cleanser from a Mary Kay party. The lady hosting it recommended it but I hesitated. I thought to myself "I'm using the Philosophy Acne Kit that's $80, why would a $10 cleanser work for me?" My mom insisted on trying it so I was like "What the heck, it's not my money... sure why not." .............. and wow! I fell in love! I no longer have bumps and tons of zits. I only have marks and scars but it's slowly fading away. :) I definitely recommend it. Also, try the moisturizer. They say that the Velocity stuff are meant for teens but I think adults should try it as well. :)
i got this when I was still sorta new to makeup and I really thought Cover Girl was good....... but NO! Was I wrong! More than half there products are crap. Especially this! No coverage at all and there was sparkles in it. I got a mineral foundation for a reason - not to be some pretty princess with sparkles all over my face. The brush is crap too. Hated everything about it.
I had a high hopes for this mascara because of the brush and just because it's L'Oreal. But it was pretty disappointing. It clumps and I really thought I wouldn't have to worry about it because of the cute, tiny, round brush. I gave it a 2nd try, still sucked. Not buying it again. It was a waste of $8 that I could've spent on a different and better mascara.
I liked the mascara, but it's definitely not the best. It's not really good for your lashes either... I understand that it's waterproof but it's so hard getting it off and makes a couple of my lashes fall out........ NOT GOOD! It made my lashes have a little more volume though and people complimented my lashes. Other than that, I'm not a huge fan of it. If you wanna try this mascara, get the non-waterproof one.

I love this foundation. It does transfer if you accidentally rub your face against an object though - but hey, it's a drugstore foundation... can't expect much. It wasn't that much though, no biggie. I've worn it during my track practices before, because I didn't get a chance to wash it off, but on the other hand - I got to test if it would leave streaks if you sweat. It didn't! I was so scared to look in the mirror when I got in the car. I might get it again one day, but not when it's time for another foundation... because I did get oily after just a couple hours. I'd recommend it to dry-normal skin and maybe even combo. I'm at school so I don't really have a lot of time or dedication to take out powder for touch-ups. Other than that, I really do love the foundation because of the great coverage.
