Gave me crazy rashes around my eyes. Now i look like a raccoon! Will just stick to my usual mascara.

I love this stuff. It is good for fading scars for someone who prone to falling down. I also apply this on my face and eyes when I feel that they are dry.
I was so miffed when I got this at first. It just kept smearing on my eyelids. Then I found out how to make this last longer (thanks to gossmakeupartist). After applying the liner, I pull a tissue apart and dab it onto the eyeliner. Warning: this method takes the shine and intensity off the liner, but at least I don't have to toss this out before I finish using it.
I have sensitive skin, so I mix water into the scrub before applying. I do not scrub this stuff in and simply massage it everywhere on my face. I was hesitant to do this at first, but now I would say this method of application works. Despite the price, this is not a miracle product. I still have to watch my diet (no fried and sugary food) and sleeping habits (before 12mn) to maintain a relatively clear skin. However, I'm willing to look past this since my skin feels baby soft afterwards. Edit: It broke me out, so bad. Down to 3 stars because it does what it claims to do.

HG makeup remover. Just need two cotton pads for my whole face. The first to remove all make up. The second, to ensure that there's really nothing left on my face. However, it leaves a weird layer of film on my face. So I generally wash it off with soap and water.

Didn't break me out but looked so cakey on me. Worse, it dried me out and gave me skin flakes. Packaging was downright annoying because powder would spill everywhere if you are not careful. That being said, you have to give it to EDM for its color selection.

I hate this stuff because it kept breaking me out. It also won't stay put for more than an hour. However, this could be due to my oily and acne-prone skin. Still, I was so disappointed because this product received raves nearly everywhere.

My HG mascara. I know it's HG when I keep going back to it after using Fiberwig, lashblast, dollywink. It has crazy lengthening power but is not volumising. Works for me since I already have lots of lashes. Might not work for girls with sparse lashes because it can give the spider-leg look. The only problem is that it's hard to remove. However, I have baby oil for that!

my favourite lipgloss. it isn't sticky and adds just a hint of color. i use it to tone down some lipsticks which I find to be extremely garish. it doesn't last long though. however, when it fades, it leaves a nice tint together with whatever lipstick i mixed with it.
Removes the most hard-core mascara and eyeliner. Cheap and comes in a huge bottle. Couldn't ask for more!
I bought this in two colors, Warm Golden and Sand Beige. I use the former when I am tanned and a combination of both when I want to contour my face. Staying power: I am incredibly oily and liquid foundation tend to just slick off my face in the most unsightly manner after a few hours. I wore this for about six hours today and it is still there. Slightly faded but in a natural 2nd skin way. Medium coverage: I have stubborn acne discoloration and this managed to cover 80% of it. That's not an issue because there's always concealer. Oil Control: I still produce oil, but it manages to keep the oiliness away for some 4 hours when I am not perspiring. That is good enough. I can always dab my face with tissue paper. Product packing: Is horrible. I wish it came with a pump. However, it's not a sufficient reason to stay away from the product.
Terracotta red. Looks absolutely scary in the tube but is a beautiful muted red on the lips. I think I can safely wear this to the office. For your reference, I am NC-25. Staying power is reasonable, provided that you do not eat with it on. Lasts a good four hours on me and fades to a pretty tint. Packing: NYX Round Lipsticks have a tendency to melt when the weather gets hot, so I keep them at home.

Fades very quickly on me and emphasizes my pores when I use it alone. It left me feeling very disappointed. However, it covers really well underneath above Revlon Colorstay foundation. It's also really fantastic because I only need a pinhead to cover my acne. I suppose I won't be repurchasing because I want to find a concealer that can last long on its own. Edit: Now I think this stuff is fantastic. I mix it together with my Revlon Colorstay Foundation to improve its staying power and de-emphasize my pores. FYI: I am NC 25-30 and I use #6. When I get tanned, I mix it with a darker foundation, vice versa. Works like magic now.
I rub an ice cube on my entire face after washing my face twice a day. It really helped with the acne provided that I go to bed before 12mn. I also rub ice cubes on my eyes when I feel that they are puffy or tired. I always feel so refreshed after that!
This review is for ICM's Calamol Lotion which can be found in Watsons, Guardian and Unity. This lotion works very well for flattening stubborn pimples. I drip the lotion onto a cotton swab and dab it onto them twice daily. Then I'll just wait for about 2-3 days for the pimples to die down. I also use it to keep acne away. I dab a little bit of the lotion all over my face before I go to bed. It has been working very well for me due to my oily skin. However, those with dry skin might find it too drying. Edit: I no longer dab it all over my face. I found it irritating, although I still use it as spot treatment. Edit: down to 3 stars. too harsh on my skin to be used in the long run. a good short-term solution though.
