    NYX Cosmetics NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

    Great eye primers and liners, all-in-one

    I cannot like without the Jumbo pencil in Milk. It is by far, the best eye primer I've ever used, and most certainly will continue using it for as long as they produce it. It holds whatever eyeshadow (good or meh) you put on your lid for 16+ hours straight. They are great eyeliners too. I like using the colour ones on my upper lashline and then throw some eyeshadow on top to reinforce the colour. Work decently on the waterline, but if you have watery eyes like I do, you might need to reaply it along the day.

  • NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow

    NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow

    My favourite shadows of all time

    What can I say about them, that hasn't already been said: Colour range: 150+, Pigmentation: equal to those of high end brands, Finishes: matte, satin, shimmery, pearly, glittery, you have them all!, Price: affordable, Size: big, Drawbacks: a bit powdery and the shimmery/glittery shades have a bit of fall-out. I have quite a few of these and honestly I wish I could get all colours.

  • Maybelline New York Define-A-Lash Washable Lengthening Mascara

    The spool is quite different from what I'm used to seeing in most mascaras, it's made of rubber instead of bristles. The colour is not very black, kind of like a deep charcoal grey, not what I preffer, I like my mascaras as dark black as possible. Performance is ok, as far as curl, separation of the lashes and lengthening effect go, but it flakes a bit during the day. I wish it'd performed better, because I really like the spool, it's quite original and makes the application easier.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Classic Washable Mascara

    I used to use this mascara when I was a teenager and I really liked what it did for my lashes, so I've recently decided to try it again. It still performs ok, even though the brush is not my favourite, I like the overall look of my lashes. I'd call it a "day-time" mascara because you won't get dramatic results with it, as you'd get with the XXL extensions one; this a more "natural looking lahes" mascara type.

  • Maybelline New York XXL Extensions Washable Mascara

    Spool size: medium, Formula: not so wet as other Maybelline mascaras, Performance: the primer defines the lashes and sets a good base for the black coat to work even better. Does an excellent job lengthening the lashes and doesn't clump much. The spool is very good and coats evenly all lashes, even the smaller and shorter ones. I use it every day. Going through my third tube already. I would deffinitely buy it again.

  • Benefit Badgal Plum Mascara

    Benefit Badgal Plum Mascara

    Pretty colour, poor performance

    I really tried to make this mascara work with my eyes, since it is extremely pricey, but there's just no way around the fact that the spool is way to big for my eyes. I always end up making a mess and have to re-done some of my eye make up. Maybe if you have medium to large eyes, it can work for you. About the product itself, I'm not that impressed. It doesn't do much for my lashes that other mascaras (more inexepnsive) do. For me, this is a fail purchase.

  • Maybelline New York Lash Expansion Washable Mascara

    The size of the brush is alright, but the product itself must well be the same as the one in the Great Lash bottle, no "expansion", none whatsoever. I'm seriously dissapointed. Maybelline is quite an expensive brand where I live, so I'm really sad to have spend that much money on something that doesn't work at all for my lashes. The formula is on the wet side. Performance is below average.

  • Almay One Coat Triple Effect Mascara

    The spool is actually quite nice for the size of my eyes (freakishly small!) and I like the overall result, but if you're not used to using dry formulated mascaras, it takes a while to get accustomed to it. The waiting period between coats is very little if not none. I really like the performance, curl-holding and colour (it's one of the blackest black mascaras I've ever used). The only drawbacks are that the product in the bottle dries out faster than other wet formulated mascaras and it's quite difficult to remove.

    Not suitable for small eyes

    I really tried to make this mascara work with my eyes, since it is extremely pricey, but there's just no way around the fact that the spool is way to big for my eyes. I always end up making a mess and have to re-done some of my eye make up. Maybe if you have medium to large eyes, it can work for you. About the product itself, I'm not that impressed.
