Mascara - Almay - One Coat Multi-Benefit Mascara

3.0

12 months ago

I got this on sale for about $4. I think it's a good mascara for natural looking lashes, not quite buildable. I do get a bit of transfer onto my eyelids over 5+ hours of wear, that may be due to my oily lids. I don't like how big the brush is, I cannot apply it without getting at least a bit on my actual eyelid.

So far, I'm using this foundation and I don't hate it. (I can easily find faults with most) I'm just a little sad the colour (15) does not match my neck that well. The MA at Sephora saw me and handed the colour to me insisting that it will be a perfect match, because "I was just a little darker than he was". It makes me look incredibly fair but for winter it is okay …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara

Apr/09/2018

This is my second repurchase. With oily eyelids, my mascara constantly transfers to my lid. This mascara DOES transfer a bit, but not enough for me to complain. It darkens, lengthens and thickens my eyelashes, but is not dramatic. That is more than I can say for most mascaras. (I have sparse and short Asian lashes) The only complaint is that it takes a bit more work to remove. I usually layer …Read more

I have really oily eyelids. This only works for 2-3 hours. Even UDPP gives up on me. I do like that for the application, it goes on like a moisturizer versus the UDPP is tacky and hard to spread on the eye. I'm using this temporarily as I only wear eye liner and a neutral shade on my eye. If it smudges midday, I just wipe it away.

Apr/09/2018

My face was going through a dry phase for someone with combo skin during the winter. I am also very acne prone and weary of certain oil ingredients. I was recommended this. It's a reasonably good moisturizer, maybe not quite moisturizing enough in my drier spots on my cheeks and mouth area. I do find it does make me a bit "dewy" within the hour of applying. It doesn't seem to …Read more

I was recommended this by the MA at Sephora. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin that is also combination. I was frequently breaking out and needed something with fuller coverage. I have the shade Natural (11), which is my summer colour but way too yellow for the winter. I liked it, the scent isn't too strong, bendability was not the worse, but not the best. I found that I needed 2 and a half …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - PHOTO FINISH HYDRATING FOUNDATION PRIMER [DISCONTINUED]

I've been on a hunt for a primer that isn't too drying on my combination sensitive skin. This actually works well to keep it hydrated and my skin looks great but unfortunately it breaks me out. Actually almost all primers break me out. I checked the ingredients and there are 4 silicones, Maybe a few too many for my skin to tolerate. On to the next one.

Jul/27/2017

Almost 3 decades later, I'm starting to discover what my skin is sensitive to. I avoid all oils, fruit extracts. Coverfx seemed like a very good option to go with. I had high hopes for this primer. It does keep my oily skin slightly at bay, BUT It started to break my nose out. When I stopped applying it there. It broke the rest of my face out. I am horribly disappointed and it seems any …Read more

I had a few cystic blemishes and a whole lot of dark spots and scars prior to using this..and I couldn't figure out why for a while why I was continually breaking out. My skin did not react well to this formulation, it truly does lasts on my skin but that was also the problem. Trying to remove this was a nightmare, within 2 days of not using this I stopped breaking out. I think that if you …Read more

Winter has not been kind to my hair with the dry air and overusing the blow-dryer. My hair started to feel very brittle and rough. I was at Winners (Similar to TJ Max in the States) and saw the shampoo on sale for $11. Even upon the first use, my hair immediately felt smoother and softer. The strangest thing is my hair is incredibly thick and is sopping wet after I shower but with this, it almost …Read more
