Midnight Black shade is highly pigmented and soft. Goes on smoothly and works great for creating smoky eyes look. It does smudge though, get ready for that! I love Sephora Collection products very much for price/quality ratio and this eye liner is not an exception.

I got this as a part of a beauty box and as I never heard of the brand Simple, I didn't even know whether it's drugstore brand or something else. This is the first moisturizer that I truly feel and see working. When I looked it up on the internet and realized that this is drugstore product that doesn't even cost that much, I was amazed! My skin is on the dry side and Simple does a great job in moisturizing and softening it. It's so light, absorbs almost immediately and certainly doesn't leave your skin shiny or oily. I took one star off just because this product is meant for sensitive skin but for some reason I almost always feel tingling sensation when applying this moisturizer. I am fine with this little tingling but since I don't even have the most sensitive skin, product could have been a little bit more gentle. Other than that, it's great!

Very good cleanser
I am currently using this cleansing gel and I really like it. It's very mild on skin, has fresh subtle scent and does amazing job on cleansing - no traces of make up left! It is also dry and sensitive skin friendly and leaves skin feeling soft, clean and smooth.

Not impressed, not dissapointed
I was not impressed by this shampoo but was not disappointed either. It's very hard to judge whether it really repairs hair because I didn't use this product alone (w/o conditioner), and I tend to think that conditioner contributes a bit more to restoration of hair than shampoo. This shampoo definitely did not "strip" the colour, didn't dry the hair out and did pretty decent job on cleaning. However, I didn't like the scent. Clairol is more known for it's hair dyes and the scent of this shampoo strongly reminded me of one. I guess, that's what "professional" stands for because a lot of salon products tend to have this kind of smell. Another thing I didn't like was bottle design. It looks better in picture than it does in real life. Very weird and unattractive colour scheme, not like it's crucial for shampoo but objectively this shampoo bottle was visually less appealing than any other packaging on my bathroom shelf. I got this shampoo for testing purposes through TotalBeauty and I am not likely to purchase it for myself, Overall, it gets the job done but compared to the other products available at the market it doesn't stand out at all.

Liquid Facial Soap Mild
I use this cleanser along with other products from Clinique skincare products and in my opinion it does what it promise. It's non-irritating, mild indeed and cleanses nicely without drying the skin. It's excellent value too - huge bottle for ~$16 that lasts for a long time. However, I'd definitely would like to see fragranced version because I don't quite enjoy the smell of this fragrance-free one.

Parissa Wax Stripes
QUICK TIPS: Instead of warming strips in your hands before separating them, try to blow some warm air from a blow dryer on them. They will separate much easier and wax won't sticks just to one of the strips (happened to me couple times). Just don't overdo it! I bought couple boxes for just $1 each some time ago (the store was closing down) and I found these strips to be just all right (especially for the price but I don't think I'll ever seem them being sold that cheap ever again). I really liked Azulene Oil that came with strips - it doesn't feel like oil but still fulfills oil's functions!

I really like everything about this product except for the scent. It is very specific and quite unpleasant, smells more like a cheap soap (I believe before "improving" the formula lotion had pleasant scent, but not now). But still Jergens Skin Smoothing Cellular Renewal Moisturiser has lightweight texture, absorbs easily and doesn't leave sticky residue. It does the job really well, results are noticeable after the first use already - skin becomes soft, smooth and silky. Still, the scent ruins the whole thing, at least for me.

Sunscreen not moisturiser
I didn't quite like this "moisturizer", it has a weird smell (not really bad, just not very pleasant). The texture is very much like sunscreen - thick and not clumpy per se but it feels clumpy anyway for some reason. Zero value as moisturiser but all right if you're going to use it as a sunscreen only.

03: Dark Brown
This brow definer blends in really well, looks natural, lasts all day. Despite the shade being called dark brown it is really not that dark. The texture is nice but maybe a little bit too soft. First time I had to sharpen this brow definer before I realised half of almost new product was gone! Tip kept falling off and I had to resharpen it over and over. It wasn't hot neither there was any issue with a sharpener. Besides, The Body Shop lip liner (with similar texture) bought at the same day was getting sharpened with no problems. I felt it was a major waste - half of pencil gone :( There is a possibility mine is just defective but now I sharpen it with =extreme= caution.
