Max Factor Eye Shadow Trio - A little does NOT go a long way.
This shadow may look nice, however, as many people have said, you have to cake it on your lids to get any color whatsoever. I don't like this product because the colors aren't as vivid or bright as they look in the case even when you use a lot of it. I have "Metalicious" which is the lime green, electric turquoise, and pastel lavender one and the only one that stands out in any way is the turquoise. These do not blend well either and the length of time they last really depends. I don't recommend this at all, but it's not the worst shadow I've tried.

Mary Kay Velocity Facial Cleanser - LOVE
I got introduced to Mary Kay through a friend who had an MK party. I couldn't be happier with this product and it is the only one I'll ever use again. This is the one cleanser that's actually worked for me. I get compliments on my skin all the time and I had tried everything before. The sensation FEELS clean and completely clears out your pores without feeling like sandpaper. The first time I tried it, my skin felt a bit of a tingle and I felt completely refreshed when I washed it off. One of the best things about this product is that the size of a dime will cover your entire face, so you get many uses out of what you pay for. I recomend this for all skin types. I am of mixed descent, so finding "the perfect for your skintype" product is difficult, but I've found it.

Lancome Definicls High Definition Mascara - Very nice
My eyelashes are already very dark, black, and thick, but after applying shadow, mascara becomes a necessity. This was a gift from a good friend and I'm quite fond of it. It separates and easily coats each lash and has a great slim and precise design. This shade, "Black/Noir", is the same as my own lashes and enhances them well. If I supported the company, I would buy this again, but I'll still recomend it to those that do. Great product.

L'Oreal HiP Bright Shadow Duo - Not great
Some time ago, I saw these were on sale buy one get one free. So I bought "Roaring" - a neutral creamed coffee/deep intense indigo blue - and "Showy" - a frosty sea foam teal/dark sparkly opaque blue. My biggest issues with this are I don't support the company anymore and I think I'm allergic to it, which hasn't happened with any other product. (Strangely, other people have complained of a stinging sensation and in one review I read, the person's eyes puffed up from an allergic reaction.) My eyelids itch from time to time and continue to do so even after I've taken it off. The colors are a hit-or-miss. The indigo blue and sea foam teal are vibrant, but you have to apply a fair few coats to eliminate uneven lines. The other two colors are not as vibrant and hence take even more coats. These do eventually crease, but are also a bit difficult to take off. For about $7, this isn't a horrible buy, and I do like the colors, but it's not my favorite product in the least bit. The only reason it got a 3 was for the two colors I liked, but I can't seem to like anything else about this product. If you're looking for quality pigments that won't bother your eyes or budge on your lids, MAC has fantastic choices.
