Mascara - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Dec/30/2014

I recieved this as a Sephora brithday gift. The travel size actually lasts forever, and I am currently using this mascara.

It is okay. It doesn't irritate my eyes, as many mascaras do (contact lens wearer).

However, it dries extremely quickly, and if you try to apply a second coat after it dries, you end up with spidery lashes. So, any volume that you want to add must …

This is not a full converage concealer. Pro longwear is full coverage. It's typical, medium coverage. It did not last as long as I wanted it to, and after a couple of hours, scars and dark circles looked almost un-concealed.

However, what I did love about this product is that it did not irritate my skin whatsoever, and actually felt like it was diminishing whatever it was I was …

When I first got this product, I loved it! It is extremely full coverage, and you can't beat the price. It also has a wide variety of shades to choose from.

I did repurchase this multiple times. However, I was wary because of the 4 types of parabens it contains. I believe it was four, I don't have the packaging to double check.

But here's where I decided it …

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

Dec/30/2014

I bought this in the Ulta 40% off NYX sale, so it was a great value at the time.
I hoped it would set my makeup, and extend the life of it.

However, I did not spray the product directly on my face, but on a makeup brush to apply. Maybe this is why I noticed absolutely no difference in my makeup.

It smells REALLY bad. Extremely chemically. I couldn't get past it. I …

This is an okay drugstore concealer.
I would describe it as medium coverage, and consistency. It is not too thick, but also not runny.

For my taste, I would prefer a more longwearing concealer, with full coverage, so it was not for me. I also mostly used this on my face. But, if you are looking for medium coverage, are using it for your under eyes, and don't mind guessing …

This was my HG concealer. It lasted all day and matched my skin perfectly (NC35).

However, after about three weeks of wearing it, I noticed a lot of breakouts, and it was the only new product I had used. I stopped using, and after two days, everything cleared up.

I'm super disappointed, because this was the perfect formula of concealer for me! It covered everything …

I bought the Clean and Clear: Morning Burst Oil Absorbing Sheets for $5 at K-mart. They're the same as the regular, except these some in the lime green Morning Burst Packaging. Overall, the price was fair for the product, although when you first see the tiny packaging, you might think twice about it.

Description: The texture of this product was slightly like plastic, not like …

I absolutely LOVE this product. I swear I'm addicted. I use it s a primer for lipstick, before bed, and when I wake up in the morning. I love the tingly feeling that it gives your lips.

Moisturizing: This product leaves my lips really soft and leaves a tingly minty feeling. But, when it tinglyness wears off, I find it really necessary to reapply, maybe because it's a bit too …
