This stuff is seriously incredible

- Doesn't flake, even by the end of the day. Very rare
- Gives a great amount of volume with one or two coats
- Doesn't appear dry - it makes your lashes look shiny if that makes sense
- Lashes look long and curled
- Huge Bonus: this is so easy to wash off - yet stays on fine all day.

This mascara starts to dry …

Mascara - Buxom - Lash Volumizing Mascara

Really surprised at the reviews for this - perhaps I got a bad tube of this mascara.

Very flaky and dry. I found it hard to even coat the entirety of my lashes from root to tip. Very thin consistency as well. I tried to apply a second coat and was unable to build it up and it looked even more flaky.

Got this for free in the makeup section of a Target from a lady handing out beauty sample bags.

Wasn't very excited to try this, but wow is it great. The formula makes your lashes look pretty thick considering that the formula in the tube seems pretty liquid and thin. This stuff makes your lashes look long and thick without getting dry and clumping by the end of the …

I've had this palette for over a year now and find myself using it about every other day for subtle work looks and night out looks.

Color payoff: 4.5/5
Color range: 4/5 - I am running out of the lighter base/highlight shades faster than the rest

-1 out of 5 due to fallout. It takes a careful pat with your brush to avoid a slight dusting of the colors transferring …

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

Holy grail eyebrow pencil for me. Can't beat the price, and the two pencils last me at least 4 months with daily use.

I have medium to dark blonde hair and the dark blonde and light brown eyebrow pencils both look great.

Staying power for these is fantastic as well - stays put in the hot, humid days of summer.

This mascara is a hit for me - with any mascara, you can avoid smudging on your eyelid by applying a good coat of skin colored eyeshadow all over the lid (or just apply a bit of your normal powder on the lids). I have very oily skin and this is usually a problem for me, but haven't had problems with this mascara by sticking to my trick.

With that said, this mascara is fantastic …

I have oil, acne prone skin - and I love this powder. A light layer of this and I don't find myself using an oil sheet for 3 or 4 hours

Packaging is awful and you really can't take it with you, if you drop it from a foot or two above it will all crumble - but I just keep mine at home so I have no problem with it

If you want a pigmented powder, this isn't for …

Eye Shadow - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow and Liner- Nude palette

3.0

Gorgeous packaging, but very little pigmentation

The color range is nice, with mostly shimmery colors. The shadows feel very smooth and won't flake/crumble if you swipe a brush over them. However, the color payoff is pretty bad.

With that said, to make the most of this palette I apply a white cream eye shadow primer by NYX and apply the shadows over it for daytime looks.

Masks - Freeman Beauty - Facial Clay Mask - Mint & Lemon

Jun/23/2013

I have moderate acne with the occasional cysts and very oily skin

With that being said this is a fantastic mask to use every other day or as a spot treatment as needed - it soaks up all the oil in my face without drying my face out (very minimal dry spots) and also helps prevent cysts from getting worse or too red. This product doesn't break me out and I think anyone with oily or …
