Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - No Budge Retractable Liner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I have this 'no-budge' retractable liner in black (the only colour available at the time I purchased it a few weeks ago). Can't say I'm a fan. It's a bit hard, not very pigmented, and difficult to get it to lay down colour - both on the waterline and lashline. Wear time (on the waterline - couldn't get enough payoff on the lashline) was unimpressive. If you want …Read more

I've been using this for a few weeks now. On me it performs about the same as my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (ie. decent medium coverage... doesn't settle into my wrinkles... stays put all day). I use the Light Ivory for the eyes and Light/Med Beige for around my nose... set with e.l.f. HD powder and I'm good to go. Since I first bought it, Superstore has jacked the price up by …Read more

Eyeliner - MILANI - Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner

I have this in 01 Linked On Black. Sadly it's the only colour my store carries (C'mon Stupidstore! You can do better!) cuz this is a great pencil! It glides on intensely and effortlessly without any pulling/tugging whatsoever! I use it exclusively along the upper lashline so I can't say how it works on the waterline (I use different liners for that). This is a rather soft pencil …Read more

Eyeliner - essence - Extreme Long Lasting Eye Pencil

These are like an 'upgrade' from their twist-up Gel waterproof liners. Those worked great!... for the first month or so... then all 3 pencils I bought totally dried out and became completely useless!!

When I saw these new Extreme Lasting waterproof liners and saw they were NOT twist-up (no way for air to get down the barrel and dry them out prematurely) I figured I'd …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

I really like this concealer. I don't find it creases on me at all. The first thing I do when I get it home is pull off the little sponge (seems so unsanitary and wasteful to me); that way I can see exactly how much I'm twisting up and get just the right amount. I use it sparingly, putting a tiny amount on my ring fingertip, rub against my other ring fingertip and dab under my eyes to …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Precision Beauty Silicone Pore Scrubbers

Jun/09/2017

SO glad I picked up these little scrubbers! It's reduced my cleansing from 3 steps dow to 2. I usually remove all my eye makeup using micellar water, then wash my face as well as I can with facial cleanser and my fingers before washing again with a microfiber mitt (I don't want to get the mitt all dirty with makeup but it helps exfoliate and remove what little makeup may be left) …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Barely Cosmetics Definer Soft Makeup Sponge

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2017

I've been eying this cute new makeup sponge I keep seeing at Winners and Marshalls over the past few months. It's called the 'Not Your Average Make Up Sponge' by BarelyCosmetcs. They're packaged in little ziplock type bags that are clear in the front and metallic colours in the back to match the colour of the sponge. They come in a Definer Soft (which I got) in different …Read more

I bought both the Instant Miracle (in a tube) and the Mask with Reinforcing Serum (in a tub) when they first came out and were on sale. I've got lots of very fine long hair that was damaged a few years ago from a *failed* hair colour job and have suffered a lot of breakage/falling ever since (still waiting for the damaged ends to grow out).

The Instant Miracle can be washed out …

Eye Makeup Remover - Marcelle - Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover Lotion

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/08/2012

I have to agree with many of the other reviewers here in that this stuff does NOT live up to its promises. It 'claims' to:

· Gently and effectively remove all traces of eye make-up
· Will not irritate or sting the eyes
· No greasy or oily sensation.

Well I guess Marcelle thinks it's ok to make good on one of their claims... this stuff does not leave …

Polishes - Color Club - Blue-Ming

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2012

I should start off by saying I've got very fair skin; so for a nail polish to look any good on me it needs to be either very light, very bright (neon or vibrantly colored) or very dark/vampy (muted or medium toned polishes look really icky on me!!)

I did a lot of searches online for the lightest, brightest green/aqua polish I could find (and was willing to pay for). Blue-Ming fits …
