(review) CoverGirl "Super Sizer Fibers" mascara

This mascara has tiny fibers in it that attach to your eyelashes to make them appear longer and thicker... Supposedly...
.............
My eyelashes were barely even visible 
without 10 coats of this mascara, WTF?!
I also found it worked better if you let each coat dry before applying the next.

(review) Kat Von D LASH LINER

This is a liquid eyeliner made specifically for the waterline. You're supposed to pull your skin away from your eyeball, paint the waterline, and then wait for it to dry before letting go. Kinda time consuming and awkward.
..
The applicator is a soft doe foot but it us kinda large and can easily make a mess- and getting that eyeliner gunk out of your eye when you're wearing contacts is a nightmare!
My eyes also felt DRY during the day- like how matte liquid lipsticks make your lips feel dry and uncomfortable.
Now here's some end of the day pics:
Nope. Did NOT last on my waterline.
FAIL!

(review) MAYBELLINE Master Precise CURVY liquid eyeliner pen

I bought this liner for $2.99 at Marshalls.
MAYBELLINE Master Precise CURVY liquid eye liner 310 black Review
It's really hard to get a thin line, this pen hoes on FAT!
But I do appreciate the color, heavy black.
Remember to snap the lid back on tight!
Here's pics I took 6 and 10 hours later:
Eyeliner held up well in 80degree weather.
I might actually repurchase this 🙂

FAKE vs Real Dermacol (on eBay and Amazon)

I bought extreme coverage foundation from 3 different sellers and I think only 1 sent me authentic Dermacol ☹️ WTF?! And what upsets me most is that these sellers had excellent feedback- so hundreds of people have been suckered! They're putting a potentially dangerous mystery makeup on their skin, that's BAD!!
Look at the front of the boxes: the floral design should not be so bright.
Look at the back: the hologram should not be a sticker, and the white sticker should be perfectly centered.
Look at the side: too much Arabic writing.
Dermacol does not individually wrap.
The sellers who sold me fakes shipped from Racine, WI and Glendora, CA.
I think I paid around $9/each. So stupid 💩

(review) ESTÉE LAUDER Double Wear Maximum Cover Foundation

Ok, so I've obviously been beaten with the ugly stick this past year-- I need EXTREME coverage foundation ASAP! I was patiently dealing with the struggle but today I had a breakdown prompted by a stupid Mac saleslady who wouldn't mind her own buisness. So here we are, trying:Estee Lauder Double Wear MAXIMUM Cover Camouflage Makeup For Face and Body SPF 15
  
1C1 Cool Bone (palest color)
It is super heavy coverage.
WARNING! this stuff dries & sets quickly so you have to do one area of your face at a time. This stuff stays put! LoL touch your face as much as you want, *amazing*!
The best tool I found to apply this foundation was a brush, dab! dab! dab! Don't swipe. Then I dabbed more foundation onto spots that needed it.It dries matte. And cakey on me- I need to find a better primer.You don't have to use a setting powder. You shouldn't because that makes it super cakey!It did not work well as an under eye concealer on me.
Try #2:
 
Final conclusion: good enough but not a miracle. It keeps my redness covered all day but it makes me look like I have bad makeup skills because it's so darn cakey. It's not covering dry skin or textured bumps/dips well.Estee Lauder Maximum Double Wear matches my color better than Laura Geller foundation BUT Laura Geller looks smoother on my skin.

(consistency review) Laura Geller "Star Performers"

Star Performers: Balance-n-Brighten & Balance-n-Bronze
I bought 6 sets so we can compare the color consistency. Baked Laura Geller products are always a swirled combination of colors.
Some of these Balance-n-Brighten compacts are definitely darker than others...
And WHY did the FAIR foundations come in a set with MEDIUM bronzers??
Some of these Balance-n-Bronze compacts have a little pink, that's cute.

(review) Laura Geller balance-n-brighten "Porcelain"

Now that it's winter "fair" is a tad dark on me and I bought "porcelain"- but I'm having this weird STROBING effect on my face. Wtf?
The powder is matte in the pan. Here I took a pic with no primer, no moisturizer and you can see this highlight be *Poppin*! on my nose and cheek. I'm not seeing other girls complain about this lol am I just weird? What's going on? This *glow* does not appear on my skin with "fair" balance-n-brighten foundation.
 (and yes I know my skin is dry, rosacea/acne is bad, but Laura Geller foundations are usually amazing for me to cover up redness)
PS- it's Friday the 13th so I should have expected crazy crap to happen 💩 just my luck!
(it's finally been snowing here in Colorado haha, spring snowstorms = "winter")
