  • Physicians Formula Eye Definer Automatic Eye Pencil

    The line is too heavy and it smudges too easily.

    NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow

    terrific... until it creases

    I have just one of these in a nude matte shade called "Blame it on Midnight," which I bought on sale just to try since I'd heard a lot of good things about NYX eye shadows. It has terrific pigment and goes on beautifully... but sadly, it does crease after several hours wear.

  • Maybelline New York Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup

    This was the rare impulse buy that actually worked out. I’d had to give up two previous concealers I’d been very happy with due to allergic reactions that developed after long term use, and I wasn’t terribly happy with the concealer I was using at the time when I happened to see this. Frankly, what attracted me was the round sponge applicator, and I decided to give it a try. So I bought it and took it home – and amazingly, it turned out to be fantastic! It gives great coverage, blends easily, and looks completely natural. I’ve been using it for about a year now. I even sometimes use it as a lip concealer when I’m going for a nude lip (my lips have a lot of natural pigment that needs to be toned down before I can get a nude lipstick to work for me). I just pray I don’t develop an allergy to THIS concealer.

  • Maybelline New York Color Sensational Pearls Lipcolor

    This gives a pleasant shimmer, but there is no pigment whatsoever. Unfortunately I bought this from a store that doesn't take returns of opened makeup, so I guess I'll give it to my 8-year-old niece to play with.

  • Maybelline New York Superstay 14hr Lipstick

    This was a weird combination of chalky matte and shimmer. It looked unattractive and made every wrinkle in my lips glaringly obvious. I quickly returned it.

  • L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour

    I have this in Fairest Nude, which is the best nude lipstick I've been able to find so far in drugstores. It gives a beautiful beige lip with just a hint of pink, and a lot of moisture -- IF I apply a lip concealer first (I have a lot of natural pigment in my lips). Without a concealer, it doesn't give quite enough coverage, and it also feels oily. Until I find a better nude lipstick, I’ll stick with this.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

    This has been my staple mascara for the past year. It applies well and evenly. I'm surprised to read others have had problems with flakes -- that hasn't happened for me.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express Falsies Flared Washable

    This mascara gave me giant clumps. I returned it.

  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

    This had good coverage but made my face look too shimmery, in an odd way. I could also feel a slightly slick, oily feeling on my face all day long, the opposite of what I expected -- I'd tried a tinted moisturizer specifically because I DIDN'T want to feel it. Admittedly I have sensitive skin, so it might work for someone else. Luckily I'd bought it from a store which accepts returns of opened and used products, and was able to return it.

    CoverGirl SmokyShadowBlast

    An impulse buy I regretted

    I bought this because I had a Walgreen’s coupon for CoverGirl that was about to expire, and this looked intriguing. It quickly ended up in the trash. The lid color (bronze) looked great on, but it was difficult to apply, and then smeared and creased like crazy. And then to add insult to injury, within a couple weeks of buying it one of the makeup sticks fell out of the tube altogether and landed on the bathroom floor. That’s when it went into the trash.
