Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - Dream Matte Pressed Powder ] [DISCONTINUED]

For a cheap, purse-portable touch up powder, this is very nice. Yet there are some drawbacks. The packaging is weird. The top flips open for access to the powder, but the puff and mirror swivel out the bottom. It's simply impractical to use, so I use a small brush and for application purposes.

Additionally, the color selection is not very good. But it's not very pigmented so …

Eyeliner - Hard Candy - Walk the Line - Liquid Liner in Asphalt

I was expecting better pigmentation from this eyeliner. Once dry, it is very black, but the pigment tends to separate, so the color saturation is iffy. In addition, it takes a while to dry. I have smudged this many times on accident because of this.

Also, the brush gives a thick line and I have to struggle to create a thin one. I think this is because there is too much product left on …

I've tried a few yellow concealer sticks from the drugstore: Physician's Formula, Maybelline, etc.

The problem was they were not yellow enough to counteract any discoloration. I tend to suffer from red-purplish under eye discoloration and need a strong yellow tone in my concealers. Maybelline's looked white on my skin and creased and caked like crazy. PF was more yellow …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - One by One Volum' Express [DISCONTINUED]

This is my new favorite mascara for a natural look.

I have the waterproof version and it really holds a curl all day with no flakes. The very black color is indeed, VERY black. The wand is magnificent...no excess product, and it separates EVERY LASH. This brush is far superior to the CG Lash Blast brush.

However, this is not a mascara for those wanting 'wow' …

The BEST drugstore scrub. I'm sorry people, but 'natural' scrubs are just not good for your skin. Walnut shells, crushed seeds etc. can create micro tears in the skin.

This smells fantastic, a little goes a long way, and it isn't too expensive. Plus I enjoy that it's medicated and contains green tea. My skin has never felt smoother with any other …

I think this is the best women's 'all-around' razor out there.

I used the Sensor Excel for a long time but the head didn't pivot as much, resulting in nicks and skipped hairs. Also, two blades wasn't cutting it for me any longer (pun intended).

I haven't used the Venus since high school. It's a great little razor! I'm not crazy about …

I have a round face.

I love this brush. I need my blush to be strictly on my cheekbones or just a little below in order to create some definition. Fluffier, bigger blush brushes spread the product too high or below my cheeks and make my application look sloppy.

It took practice to get used to it, since it's more of a patting motion instead of a swirling, buffing one …

LOVE this mascara. It's a great replacement for Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof.

It's very waterproof, doesn't smudge. However I do get a couple flakes but nothing I can't whisk away. It thickens my lashes, separates them and lengthens them. It could be better, yes, but as an overall mascara it's wonderful! I don't have any gripes about it other than …
