    Revlon Luxurious Color Eyeliner

    Not bad for a drugstore liner

    This eyeliner is very creamy, comes with a handy smudger, and I love the color. I have the dark blue pencil that I like to wear with brown eyeshadow-- it helps my blue eyes look a little brighter. The liner stays fairly well, but does smudge once in a while. On the waterline, it fades a little, but I find that I only need to reapply once during the day and I'm set. So overall, I would recommend this liner to anyone looking for quality but doesn't want to spend $18 on a pencil at Sephora.

    Revlon Luxurious Color Perle Eyeshadow

    Gorgeous, but I wish there were more colors!

    I have this eyeshadow in "peach sorbet" and I LOVE it! It's the perfect highlight color, or over the entire lid, for a sheer, natural look. It goes on smoothly, and stays all day (over primer obviously!). I hope Revlon releases more colors for this line.

  • Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner
    7.0

    Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner

    Not the best out there, but a pretty good drugstore product.

    This liner stays on my top lash line with no smudges all day (score!), but sadly fades from the waterline after a couple hours. I carry it with me for touch-ups. Application is fair; it goes on fairly smoothly with some tugging, but not a lot. Overall, I've tried better, but for it's price, this liner performs fairly well.

  • Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel

    I have this nail polish in "peach prism"-it works well with my fair skin, although it's very sheer so I tend to apply about 3 coats to get the color I want. It wears well without chipping, but when I use top coat, it lasts much longer. Good quality for a low price.

  • Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Daily Mattifying Lotion SPF 15

    This lotion is very lightweight--and when I say light I mean LIGHT! I have combo skin so sometimes this doesn't give me enough moisture. But in the summer when my skin is oilier, this is usually sufficient. It dries to a matte finish and works very well under makeup. Add spf, antioxidants and leave out all those irritating ingredients many other companies use, and you have the perfect day moisturizer for combo/oily skin! Love this brand!

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    I had high hopes for this mascara but it didn't live up to my expectations. The brush is big, which I like, but that's where it's redeeming qualities end. The formula is quite thick and clumped very easily, after just one coat. My lashes stuck together and looked like spider legs (ewww). It also made them very crispy and when I removed my makeup at night, my lashes started falling out! Last thing: it has a very weird plastic-y smell. I don't want my eyelashes to smell like anything!

  • L'Oreal Paris EverCrème Sulfate-Free Moisture System Cleansing Conditioner

    This actually works better than I thought it would. I cleans my hair (though not as well as a regular shampoo) and leaves it relatively smooth with no build-up. It also saves time in the shower because I'm eliminating a step! That said, here's what I don't like: my hair gets greasier faster, there is only a minimal reduction in frizz, and the scent is STRONG. It smells like a musky men's cologne. And it lingers until you shower again. Another downfall: if you have long hair you have to use a lot, which means it won't last very long. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with super oily hair, or very dry/coarse hair, but if your hair is somewhere in the middle and you want to save time in the shower, give this a shot; you might like it!

    bareMinerals Liner Shadow Duo

    Use it all the time.

    I usually put this on after using pencil liner, and it really sets the color and adds a lot of drama! Powder liner can take some getting used to, and MAKE SURE you have a really good brush to apply it with. But once you get the hang of it you'll be hooked!

  • Redken Extreme Rescue Force

    Redken Extreme Rescue Force

    Give it some time

    Initially I didn't like this conditioner because my hair was quite tangled when I rinsed it out. But After using it a few weeks I found that it is making my hair softer. I think it works better after using it for awhile. I will probably start to use it about twice a week to see if that makes a difference. It's a little pricey, but if your hair needs it, this product will most likely work for you.

  • Redken Color Extend Total Recharge

    This product is ok, but I will not buy it again. I've used it as a leave in, and also with my conditioner (rinsing it out). When I left it in, it made my hair pretty dull and greasy looking. Rinsing is better, but I haven't noticed a huge difference in how much longer my color has lasted. Overall, somewhat a disappointment.
