Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - All Shades

I read a review that said this eye liner lasted on her through the humid weather and even a gym session, so I wanted to check if it holds up to my sweaty, oily face.

No such luck. It's beautiful upon application, but not three hours later I'm left with raccoon eyes. It smudges, which leaves my eyes looking tired as heck. It basically undid what my concealer is supposed to …

Lip Treatments - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips Lip Balm

It definitely was moisturizing, perhaps too much so: after application, it left my lips feeling heavy and sticky. A big no-no for lip balms, for me at least. I wish they could have gone for a more lightweight feel. ~ On a positive note, the cherry-flavored one smells & tastes delicious!

I've been using this for 4 years, so I know this pretty well. The puff is pretty useless at blending the powder. The mirror in the compact gets dirty and foggy. Coverage is poor. It transfers onto clothing. It does nothing for oil control, too. The only reason I keep repurchasing? It's cheap as chips! :p

Mascara - Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Waterproof Volume Mascara

It gives a nice, natural look. Definitely not my HG mascara but it's okay for everyday use. It's not too creamy that it just makes your lashes wet, but it's not too watery either.
I won't repurchase because it's not smudge-proof. It's my only gripe with this.

Lipstick - Max Factor - Giant Pen Stick

The only thing I liked about this is how the color is very opaque.
My cons are:
-glitter! Glitter *everywhere*.
-the color and glitter transfer too easily: mugs, hankies, even my hands are covered in sticky glittery goop after I touch my face.
-no sharpener included
-MORE GLITTER

Shame, it actually was a pretty color, but all the cons I've listed above …

Moisturizers - The Body Shop - Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion SPF 15

Dec/15/2013

I was eager to try this because I wanted an oil-control cream that moisturizes and gives an SPF bonus. It was pretty expensive (as all TBS products), so I wanted to love it. Unfortunately, I found it merely passable. Yes, it does control oil somewhat, and yes, it feels great on the skin. But I found that it was so easy to put on too much of the products and make my face even oilier.
It felt …

Lipstick - REVLON - ColorBurst Lip Butter - Raspberry Pie

Dec/15/2013

I love my lipsticks opaque and bold, so I was apprehensive about buying Lip Butters. But I saw this shade and I knew I had to have it.
I REGRET NOTHING. It feels absolutely moisturizing on the lips. And the color payoff is great! It's such a lovely, bold color. What a shame that it wears off easily—I'm not a fan of constant reapplication.
I also have a gripe with the …

Good back for your buck. It's affordable but does a great job of concealing dark circles. I don't have a lot of blemishes to cover up, so I haven't tried it for pimples yet. I also apply it on my eyelids and it looks nice applied to my browbone as a highlight.
It can get cakey if too much product is used. If you don't moisturize properly, the product can settle into fine …
