Omg what a great product! I have tried lots of different liners for the waterline and it just never worked well. You have to press too hard and go back and forth too many times to get enough color, on and on. Sometimes they are too soft and it ends up in your lashes. Not so with this NYX silver color retractable liner! Smooth application, just the right amount of pigment with one or two …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Cover Stick

This concealer has great coverage and just enough moisture to make it blendable without disappearing!
It's buildable! I swipe a fairly heavy layer of the concealer beneath my eyes, blend and massage it into my skin, then I add some more and gently tap it on with the pads of my fingers.

Don't overblend it! Wait until you apply your foundation, then blend the two …

This lipstick really does have it all! It is great for any skin-type, but is really SUPER for drier, more mature skin! The colors are fantastic, lots of pigment and staying-power and the smoothest, silkiest and moist feel!

I've used some high-end (trans.-way too expensive) lipsticks in the past and they are no better than Loreal Color Riche! Those "high-end" products …

WOW! Great colors and fantastic packaging! The little pot is really pretty and the not-so-pretty but extremely excellent to use brush is hidden in a little slot beneath the pot! The brush is compact, is easy to remove and replace and works PERFECTLY with the type of consistency this eyeshadow has, which has a nice, silky feel, glides right on and lasts well.

Revlon was even …

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Ultra HD lip Lacquer - Petalite

Apr/13/2017

This laquer delivers what it promises! It has tons of pigment and, it does kind of feel like a laquer. What I mean by that is, on my somewhat drier lips, it doesn't feel SUPER moisturizing. Slightly thick and just a tiny bit drier than the ordinary lip glosses.

When I was a bit younger and had smoother lips, this lip laquer would have been absolutely perfect! If you have …

Really nice color and good amount of pigment! What you see from the outside of the tube is what you get when you apply it! This feature is getting rarer and rarer with lip glosses, the ones I've used anyway, so this is a real plus!

The packaging is really pretty, too! Just an all around, quality item!

Brows - Maybelline New York - Expert Eyes Twin Brow & Eye Pencils [DISCONTINUED]

In my opinion, this is the BEST eyebrow pencil anybody could want! I've tried lots of brands and types, but This is definitely the best in my experience.

On normal to dry skin it stays put really well and doesn't smudge easily. Looks just as good on oilier skin and stays put pretty well as long as your eyelids are freshly washed, clean and dry. Either way, if you use a …

Not for oily skin, but great for drier (older?) Lids. I'm older, lids not so smooth anymore, but this is moist enough and smooth enough that surprisingly, it looks pretty good! Because my skin IS dry, it has good staying power. I've only tried this one color, but I like the quality, so I may try more colors.

One thing that I would criticize about this shadow is - it would …

This color is AMAZING! It has a nice, creamy (but not too creamy, a kind of very dense, solid creamy) consistency, tons of pigment and fantastic staying power. If you have nice, smooth skin on your lids , you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shadow!

A tip though, if you have drier skin, not as young as you used to be maybe, this won't work for you. I love the color so much I …

O.k this is weird. The color of this on your lips is o.k., if you're a snowman or a ghost, (super, super pale frost), but this color is an absolutely fantastic color for use as an eyeshadow!

My skin is dry, my lids not as smooth as they used to be, so I CANNOT wear frosted, powdered shadow, or even creme frosted shadows. The pigment sinks into creases in my eyelids and makes …
