I am very surprised by this $3 product as I have been disappointed by my drugstore purchases over the past few years. I really am loving this. It has only been a week since Ive been using it but I will update this review if there are changes. I've used all kinds of eyeliners almost daily (gel, pencil, liquid, high and low end) for over 15 years so I would say I am pretty knowledgeable in …Read more

I am NC40-42, use Tan, and this is an ok match. It could be a bit more yellow. I don't have sensitive skin and have never broke out from this. It gives a dewy glow and looks good in most lighting but I do notice that it looks ashy in fluorescent lighting. It doesn't photograph well and gives me ghostface with the use of flash. I have dry skin and it seems perfect for it. Overall, this …Read more

I normally wear subtle lip colors but I wanted something different and bold that is inexpensive. This is a very beautiful fuschia with blue understones. I am NC40-42 so I was surprised by how flattering it is on me. It instantly brightens up my face. This is very long lasting too..it has stained my lips until the next day!! It's one of my few lip products I would rebuy.

I am very surprised but I love this product. I usually don't have much luck with drugstore concealers and foundations. I am NC40-42 and bought Medium. A little goes a very long way for me. I don't have very dark circles but my undereye area is noticeably slightly darker than the rest of my face. I don't see myself using up this tube within the next year or two even with daily …Read more

Dec/13/2012

I am NC40-42 and the darkest one 04 is a good match.My undereye area is a bit darker than the rest of my face so I always need a bit of concealer there. A little goes a long way with this stuff and it does conceal and brighten pretty well but I can't compare it to other "eye brightening" concealers because I haven't tried others. I just dab a bit onto my undereye area and pat …Read more

I think this is a great concealer if you want something very pigmented and affordable and those are your main concerns. I've tried a lot of drugstore concealers and very few are this pigmented. A little goes a long way but I personally think it's a bit hard to work with. It's thick so it can settle into fine lines very easily. They need to provide more colors for people like me …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Lipstick (In General)

Dec/11/2012

I bought a ton of these in the past due to the rave reviews. They are pigmented and there are a ton of colors to choose from but the quality is just not there. They do not last on my lips even if I don't eat/drink. They fade and/or transfer very easily and quickly. Because of that, I don't plan on buying them anymore. They are also drying. Most lip products dry out my lips terribly and …Read more

I have a love/hate relationship with this. I've had this for 7-8 months now and I waited until I used this a whole lot to review it. I've been using gel/cream type liners almost daily for around six years so I think I'm pretty knowledgeable and experienced with them. I've used gel/cream liners from many brands such as ELF, MAC, Smashbox, Tarte, Jane, Stila, Sonia Kashuk …Read more

There's been a few times when I couldn't find this in the morning and kind of freaked out. lol This is the best concealer I have tried and I've probably tried at least 6-7 different ones. I'm NC40-42 and Honey is a perfect match. Let me first say that I don't have major dark circles. I do not need a lot of coverage but my undereye area is maybe 2 shades darker than the …Read more

This is the first Japanese mascara I've ever used and it makes me want to try more. Why? Because it's truly waterproof. I live in an area where it's hot and humid most of the year and this stuff doesn't flake or smear. It's also very easy to remove at the end of the day. I will give it a lot of credit for staying power but it doesn't give my lashes the boost it …Read more
