"The curl it provides lasts ALL day; it does not smudge; it does not leave black flakes all over your face...I even cried with this mascara on and expected to see a mess when looking in the mirror but it didn't even smear!"

4.5 /5

73 reviews

"Over all I give these shadows a 5 out of 5 because they just don’t budge and have awesome pigmentation."

Annabelle Haute Chocolate Trio Eyeshadow

4.7 /5

52 reviews

"For a drugstore eyeshadow, Annabelle is the best in my opinion. It is very pigmented - no need to wet brush. Colors last all day - no smudging. Eyes look the same 8 hours later. Shadows are not dusty and zero fallout."

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour (all colors)

4.6 /5

69 reviews

"...longevity is very good (i work in the makeup industry so my makeup has to be long lasting up to 12 hrs and this stayed on just fine with no creasing at all!)"

NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

4.3 /5

427 reviews

"...because its so good it does make some eye shadows difficult to blend. You gotta WORK to get the look you're going for. Some shadows over this product just wont budge and blend so I've come to find out how much and how little to use..."

4.4 /5

57 reviews

" I can't imagine using anything else. It lasts me the whole day and doesn't transfer or smudge once it has set. I've often gone to bed with this product on (bad me lol) and the next day it still looks like I just put it on."

"I love having a mascara I can trust not to end up looking sloppy or unprofessional, without going all the way to a waterproof formula which can be PITAs to take off and hard on your lashes."

MAC Liquidlast Liner - Point Black

4.1 /5

Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Waterproof Mascara

3.9 /5

66 reviews

"This mascara is great for an everyday look. [It doesn't] volumize very well, but [holds] a curl [and makes] lashes look quite sleek and neat. The formula feels like a gel rather than a paste. And, for a waterproof mascara, it is very easy to remove."
