Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

I didn't like the formula change. The foundation had a smooth coverage, and it sure had staying power. The durability is just too much for me. Usually, it will take me two makeup wipes to get foundation off. With this foundation, I had to use three! Even when I wash my face and use a toner, there was still makeup residue! The color and coverage looked natural.

Unfortunately, the …

Foundations - COVERGIRL - Ultimate Finish

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2014

I bought this because of the claim that it gives a powdery finish. It doesn't, from what I can see, but it goes on very smoothly and evenly. I have oily skin, so I'm still looking for a good foundation for my skin type. However, CoverGirl Ultimate Finish is a time-saver for me. The sponge makes the application neat and easy. The coverage is not thick, but perfect for a nice finish …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Clump Crusher Extensions LashBlast Mascara

3.0

Apr/06/2014

This mascara was just OK. It didn't thicken the lashes that much, and I can't see the effect after application. I didn't see any clumping, but that's it. I think I saw some lengthening, but definitely not volume. I switched to Lash Blast Volume after using this, and that one was a much better product. There was no "extension-like effect" whatsoever.

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

The best mascara I tried thus far! The micro-bristles helps me apply the mascara evenly to my lashes and make sure that the lashes don't clump. I love the volume and the length after applying it. It lasts all day and doesn't smudge. The look is dramatic!

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear - Black Ice

I wore this for a concert, and noticed that it smeared overnight. It appeared fine when I put it on three hours before. The Pro Longwear did the opposite that it was supposed to do! The smearing made me think that I could use it as an eyeshadow instead. I will never buy this again, and threw the product away after two uses! What a waste!

This is the best brown eyeliner I've ever used so far. It doesn't smear and it's very pigmented. The price makes me reluctant to buy again, but I wouldn't mind if I can't find anything else that lives up to what this did for me. I hope to find a dupe in the drugstore.

Powder - COVERGIRL - Clean Powder Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/26/2013

This powder was so sheer, I don't know why this is called a powder foundation. It worked somewhat better as a finishing powder, but the effects are just too subtle to notice. I started wearing this on top of suncreen and liquid foundation for a fully made-up look. I had to press the sponge hard to get the foundation on it. I had to rub it in hard. The powder didn't show up on my face …Read more

Pressed Powders - COVERGIRL - Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Pressed Powder

This powder cakes in dryer spots, most notably the apples of my cheek and the bridge of my nose. I have oily skin, and wear sunscreen before heading out. I changed puffs, dabbed the excess powder with a tissue, and the caking still happened. The oily spots looked nice and had a good mattifying effect. I won't be buying this again. It's just OK in my book.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

Jul/26/2013

It wasn't spectacular. I wore this twice in 2012, and the mascara just made my lashes black. When I bought this, I was looking for a lighter formula and knew that the model was wearing false lash inserts in the ad. The mascara was thinner and wetter than most formulas. The flexible brush didn't really make much of a difference. Since the brush was a bit stiff, it just separated my …Read more
