Review of MAKE UP FOR EVER Best of Rock For Ever Products
Individual Product Review:
Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in #0L - What I like about this eyeliner is that it is easy to apply and very creamy. Unlike other eyeliner pencils that I have tried, this really gives me a deep matte black color so I don't need to add multiple coats of liner to get the intensity I need. Since it is very creamy and easy to apply, this do not tug the skin on your eyelids so it doesn't irritate your eye contour. Also this really makes tight lining very easy. However, even if it is waterproof and claimed not to run under extreme conditions, this liner has a tendency to smudge a lot if not left dry. It is important to let it dry and set it with a black eyeshadow to prevent having raccoon eyes. I am not much of an eyeliner pencil fan since I find it easier to apply cream liners but trying this product made me have second thoughts about only preferring cream liners. This is a good product to include in your travel kit since you can easily apply liner on without have to worry about bringing an extra brush to apply cream liner.
Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara - Honestly I am not much of a fan of this product and I don't see anything special about this mascara except that it does extend the lashes making then look fuller and longer. So if you have really short lashes, I would recommend trying this. Be careful in applying the product since it clumps a lot. I had to use a disposable spool right after every application to remove excess product. Also when it dries, it tends to fall off as powder which messes up at times. This is not waterproof but there is a waterproof version of this which is the Aqua Smoky Lash mascara. Overall this product is OK, just need to make sure any excess of this product is removed to avoid fallouts. This can be pricey for a mascara and since I throw away mascaras every three months, I don't think this is something that I would purchase for personal use.
