Concealers - RIMMEL - Match Perfection Concealer

I was ridiculously surprised by the effectiveness of this product. I picked it up in Walmart for about $5, because I liked the look of the brush. To use this, you squeeze the tube until the right amount of product comes out. I blended it out with my fingers. To be honest, this didn't do a spectacular job on my blemishes, but it worked decently underneath my eyes. However, I like to dab …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

5.0

May/31/2011

This moisturizer is completely amazing. I can't even remember life before this. I have shiny, oily skin and I am overall very wary about using moisturizers because of this. However, DDMG doesn't feel greasy, it absorbs quickly, and a little goes a long way, No complaints whatsoever.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

Aug/03/2010

I like! I don't have much luck finding mascaras, because of my straight asian lashes. I have tried a lot of Maybelline waterproof mascaras, and this is my favorite so far.

Pros:
-Volumizing
-Lengthening
-Waterproof
-Holds a curl

Cons:
-Kind of clumpy. I had to use an old mascara wand to run through my lashes to separate them.
-Very …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2010

I have repurchased this many times, and I liked it until I realized that there were better lip balms/chapsticks. Burt's Bees is on the waxy side, and the application is not very smooth, especially in winter time. Other than that, everything is fine. It has a faint minty smell, the tube is standard, and the price isn't bad. Unfortunately, the poor application convinced me not to …Read more

Lips - SHISEIDO - Water in Lip

Amazingly smooth, amazingly soft, amazingly sheer. Nice shine, especially from a lip balm! In the winter, I find that most balms are hard to apply because the cold weather hardens them. Water In Lip is soft and easy to apply no matter what the weather is like! This product only has one flaw: it wears off too quickly. Aside from that, I love it, and the kawaii packaging is a plus!

Mascara - RIMMEL - Sexy Curves Waterproof Mascara

3.0

Jul/12/2010

Pros:
-Doesn't harden, not crunchy or flakey.
-No clumps.
-Defines lashes.
-Looks natural.

Cons:
-Doesn't hold a curl, no noticeable curve.
-No volume.

There is a bit of lengthening to this. This has withstood a crying session without coming off, yet it is not difficult to remove with soap and water.

Mediocre.

Cleansers - Bioré - Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser

Jul/11/2010

This is so-so. I honestly didn't notice any side-effects (good!), nor did I notice any dramatic results (not-so-good). I didn't like the warming sensation, and the texture feels a little strange to me. The smell isn't bad, though. I wouldn't repurchase, but I'm didn't have bad results when using this. Overall: so-so. This was probably an unhelpful review, sorry …Read more

Jul/11/2010

These are actually THE BEST THINGS EVER, just sayin'. I don't know how they got such low reviews! I wouldn't suggest using them too often, but every know and then, it's a real treat! They are very effective, and they don't hurt at all. Although it may seem a bit disgusting, you can actually see the stuff that came off your nose on the strip. It's fabulous …Read more

It took me almost a year to like this mascara. My take:

Pros
-Nice length!
-Somewhat defining.
-Holds a curl reasonably well.
-Very waterproof.
-Nice packaging.

Cons
-Clumps.
-Brush is very wiggly.
-Looks kind of unnatural.
-Hard to remove.

This is a hit or miss product.
I might not buy it again …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Sky High Curves Extreme Length and Curl WaterProof [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2010

Nothing special. I have straight, medium length lashes. This gave a little bit of length and a little bit of volume. There was very little clumping, and no flaking. It held my curl nicely, slightly more than other mascaras. It was a bit of a pain to remove, even though I was using Maybelline's waterproof mascara remover. This is an okay mascara, but not revolutionary.
