Velvet Matte Mousse Lip Color

This has been discontinued but the shade Daffodil was a dupe for NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London. Both were in the same price range so which one to get really just depended on the quality you wanted. This one was creamier than NYX.

Cooling, soothing, smoothing. Makes my foundation stay on in hot southern weather. Dc-ed, but I still purchase online. Does not irritate my dry sensitive skin. Travels well.

Sheer Envy Instant Eye Fix Under Eye Treatment

I didn't like this. The metal applicator is nice and cooling but that's about it. The color is a nice peach color which you would think would help cancel out some of the dark circles under the eyes - it doesn't. Also as a primer it left a weird texture on the skin. When i applied concealer over it... it looks patchy and flakey.... not cute. It didn't matter if i let the primer sit on the skin for a bit or not... .the results were the same - patchy and flakey. I even tried using different amts of this primer as well.... no success.
