Glam Reviews: Mascara, Eyeliner, Lipstick.

(~$8) CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Mascara

First, let me say that I bought the one for green eyes. My eyes did not look brighter — rather, I looked like I had been crying for a day. Moreover, the mascara did nothing to either lengthen or thicken the look of my lashes, so all I had were my skinny-mini lashes, just plum colored. I was on my way to the movies, and we all know what a pain it would have been to take it off and put on another, so I went with it. When I got out of the movie theater, my lashes had barely anything left, and there was mascara dust on my undereyes and cheekbones.
Verdict: SLAM — save your $8 and buy something else instead.


(~$6) The CoverGirl LineExact Liquid Liner, however, is brilliant! It goes on so easily and accurately, and it stays put. I recommend getting it in "Brown" instead of "Black Brown", because the regular brown is really dark already. Avoid "Black", unless you're doing a 1960s mod cat eye. It just won't be classy.
Verdict: GLAM

(~$10) ColorStay Ultimate™ Liquid Lipstick, new from REVLON, blew me away. It doesn't dry your lips, as so many liquid and long-last lipsticks do; it's only "sticky" for a few minutes; doesn't feather/bleed, and it STAYS. In the interest of science, I even slept without taking it off, and it was not on my pillowcase. OK, fine, I was lazy :P — the point is, it is exactly what it promises. For those of you looking for a long-wear lipstick for your weddings, I'd say pick this one. Do note that it does not really have any shine, so pack a gloss as well. I bought "Grand Garnet" (as you know, I loves me some RED!). Check out their website for all the colors.
