Name: Maybelline Eyestudio Master Duo Thin or Thick Glossy Liquid Eyeliner
Description: Ultra-gloss finish. 24Hr wear. Waterproof
Price: £5.29
Color: Black Lacquer
Where to buy: Boots/Superdrug

So I am trying to find a long lasting eyeliner that will not smudge and will last all day and I think I have finally found it! This liquid eyeliner brush is shaped differently to other liquid eyeliner, as you can see. It depends on which side you turn that makes the brush look thin or thick.

You can create different looks to your eyes. You can make your eyes look natural looking with the thin eyeliner or thicker and bolder with the thick brush/applicator.

What I like about this eyeliner is that it is waterproof/smudge proof. I can wear it all day and the eyeliner is still on my eyelid and it does not make me have the panda eye look at all. I also like how you can create different looks to your eyes.

It is hard to apply the eyeliner at first because the brush was designed in a unique way to create two shapes that you had to hold the brush in a certain angle. There is also very little in the container so I have already finished my first eyeliner within 1/2 months (I guess it's because I use it every single day.)

Rating: 9.5/10
I love this product, even though there are some disadvantages, because I have been searching for ages for a waterproof and long lasting liquid eyeliner and I think this is the one.

 I have been trying to find a waterproof mascara that doesn't give me panda eyes after hours and I think I have finally found the product! I didn't care about the price any more for a mascara. I have been through so many drugstore mascara but none of them lasted on my oily eyelashes and they made me have panda looking eyes at the end of the day. 

This product didn't really lift my eyelashes but it did make them look longer and fuller and it also lasted all day. It did not smudge and I did not have panda eyes at the end of the day. This looks like I have like fake eyelashes on as well. 

The wand is very good as well. It is made of rubber and I like how there is spike on the tip of the brush as well.

Ratings 9.5/10

I don't think I will get another mascara other then this one unless I find one as good as this but cheaper to purchase. This mascara does exactly what it says on the description. It is lasts all day and it does not smudge either. The only bad thing I have to say is that it doesn't really lift the eyelashes up but aside from that I recommend anyone who is fed up of mascara smudging to try this product.

Name: Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream
Description: SPF 30 hydrating colour corrector
Next-generation perfecting formula delivers colour-correction, hydration and UVA/UVB protection for a more flawless look today and tomorrow - all with a refreshingly lightweight feel. Special optics help correct dullness, sallowness and other concerns to enhance skin's radiance. In shades that provide natural-looking coverage. Wears comfortably alone or under foundation.
Price: £28
Skin Type: All Types - Light Medium

This is the first CC Cream I have bought. After BB Cream, CC Cream became the "next thing". I didn't really know what the difference is between BB and CC Cream until I realize that CC stands for Color Corrector. 

I feel that CC Cream is exactly the same as BB Cream in terms of its purpose. They are both like tinted moisturizer but thicker, has high SPF and is a blemish/anti-aging product. The texture is like CC Cream as well since it is not in liquid form and it is not runny.

What I like about the CC Cream compared to BB Cream is that it does not make my face look white but it actually matches my skin tone. I feel that even when I put on BB Cream for medium skin color, my face still looks quite white but CC Cream blends into my skin color (I guess that is the change or improvement they have made to the BB Cream). It does not feel heavy on my skin and you only need a little to cover your face. CC Cream also gives a glowy skin look however it makes my face look shiny so I prefer BB Cream in that sense.

Ratings: 7/10
This CC Cream doesn't really have a nice scent. I think this is for people who doesn't really like putting on heavy make-up but likes to cover their blemishes. Even though BB Cream makes my face whiter I still prefer it to the CC Cream. I feel that the BB Cream helps my blemish more. I think the reason why this CC Cream is created is because of BB Cream's popularity. I'm sure they are going to make more like DD Cream or EE Cream soon. I think I will try a less expensive CC Cream since I don't think CC Cream needs to be as expensive as £28. What was I thinking?
