This was actually the first eyeliner I used way back in the day when I first tried eye makeup. I recently went back to it because I remember liking it. It hasn't changed! I actually really like this eyeliner for a soft natural look. It actually goes on very easily and makes a nice thin line. I actually like that it's a little bit on the "dry" side because it makes mistakes less likely for me. Definitely an everyday/softer look liner.
Didn't work for me
Um, this didn't work for me at all. I mean, it didn't come close to removing my eye makeup. It did take some of it off, but the amount of rubbing and work would practically damage my eyes. I wouldn't try it. Unless you get it for free. And even then I would only use it in an emergency. Maybe it works better on non-waterproof?
Only one I use
I've tried several types of makeup remover, but none have worked as well as this one. It gets everything off! Now, I haven't tried the higher-end removers (I know Lancome has a good reputation) but this is not overly expensive and it works great. Gets all my WP mascara and eyeliner and shadows off. Works better when you hold it on your eye for a few seconds and then wipe off. Highly recommend!
My Everyday Mascara
I use this mascara for my everyday look. It gives my lashes nice definition without being overly dramatic. I tend to not use it for going out (even though it's waterproof and I like to use WP when going out at night) because it doesn't quite have the oomph I need when wearing more dramatic eye makeup. However, if I use softer eye makeup, I use this. If you want drama and flair, go somewhere else. I do love that this formula also isn't too dry or clumpy. It's a little hard to get off at the end of the day, but it is waterproof so maybe that's a good thing... :)
How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways. I love love love this moisturizer. I have hyper sensitive skin and almost all skin creams irritate my skin (rash, redness) so I had to switch to something natural. Well, it's pure oil so how natural can you get? My friend recommended this to me (and she doesn't have sensitive skin) and I'm glad I listened. It absorbs so nicely and gives my skin a beautiful glow. It has faded some scarring and evened out my skin tone slightly as well. Sometimes i mix it with a regular cream if I need an extra boost of moisture in the winter. Just be careful - I put too much on the first couple of times and it takes longer to set in. Please try it. You can get the small travel bottle from Sephora - you will NOT regret it!
This is one of the first tinted moisturizers I've used and I absolutely like it. It doesn't make my skin oily and it lasts a really long time. I even use extra moisturizer to sheer it out a bit, but it works fine by itself. It has a SLIGHT shimmer to it so I tend to use it more at night than during the bright of day. But no one has said anything to me about it during the day. It does give a very nice dewy texture and blends easily. I use it more for night time only because I tend to do powder for every day. But when I've worn it all day, it lasts all day. Definitely recommend this product.
I LOVE this concealer. I don't use the highlighter that much so i wish that they would just sell the concealer by itself in a regular size tube (although it is surprising how much I was able to scrape out of 1 tube). This blends so easily and covers sooo well. I use it for both my dark circles and my blemishes. It does it all. It lasts all day long and the perfect consistency for me. I am not a fan of thicker concealers. I think it's discontinued though. :( If anyone has a dupe that would be amazing if you could share! :)
This was the first mineral foundation I ever tried. And honestly, it turned me onto powder foundations and mineral foundations, but I didn't realize how much I didn't like it until I used something else. The problem I had with this was that sometimes I felt like it was "suffocating" my skin. I would put it on and my T-zone would start sweating a bit. Weird, I know. Maybe I used too much at the time since it was my first try, but I used it for about a year and it always seemed sort of off. BUT, I did like the coverage and it was really easy to use. I think it's a solid mineral foundation, but I actually like Clinique's better even though the coverage isn't quite as good.
Says it in the name!
I absolutely fell in LOVE with this mascara. It is now my everyday mascara. It is so smooth and does not clump. When they say Full N' Soft, they definitely mean it. It describes that look to a T. It gives my lashes just that enough of oomph and is not dramatic at all. I don't use it going out at night only because I tend to use a more dramatic mascara for night time looks. (i.e. it won't stand out against lots of bright shadows or heavy eyemakeup). The brush is great. Never too much product and grabs every lash. I would absolutely recommend this!
I bought this on sale at Ulta a couple of days back. I've been getting into different gel liners and I really like this one. It's creamy and glides on really smooth. It sets very nicely and definitely stays on...even in light rain that I got caught in. It sets pretty quickly which is good and bad...if you make a mistake then you'll have to use remover. But excellent drug store choice! Just get rid of the brush. It's too stiff and actually hurt when I used it. Get another one!
