Physicians Formula Eye Booster and Masks

I heard so many people rave about Physicians Formula Eye Booster, therefore, I had to get one for myself and try it out. Who wouldn't want to try a product that lines your eyes, at the same time, lengthens and thickens your lashes.

Ingredients:
My thoughts: When it comes to lengthening your lashes as well as thickening, I get excited. Who wouldn't want to try and believe in products that can make your lashes look like a doll.
I took this picture from the back of the box. After seeing the results for two weeks and four weeks, it convinced me to try. It wouldn't hurt right!?!? If it doesn't work, then I will know not to buy this again. If it worked, I found something that will help my lashes look longer and thicker.
Here's how the pen looks out of the box. I think it looks very classic looking. It's shiny, sleek, and different from other liquid eyeliners. Most eyeliners come in black packaging.
Here's the tip of the eyeliner. It's very sharp which makes it easy to draw.
Here's a swatch of the eyeliner on my hand. I love how matte it is, at the same time, very dark. The day I bought this eyeliner I was disappointed they ran out of the Blackest Black, and I debated. At the end, I decided to get Black and wasn't disappointed with the swatch. I'm also not too keen on liquid eyeliners because of the shininess. I think the shininess of the liquid makes it look more fake. That's just my opinion. You don't have to agree with it. :P

After this swatch, it all went downhill. :X
Here's how the eyeliner looks on me. This time around it actually didn't come out bad, but that's the problem. :X Some days, it looks really bad and some days, it looks alright. You never know what you will get! Since the eyeliner is made with serum, it can get liquidity and make it hard to draw. It would slide to certain areas and not darken in some. You either have to wait for it to dry to redraw or go out with pretty bad line. I don't have the patience and the time to redraw. :X Even if it dries, it's hard to redraw because it would slide again.

In the picture, it looks black but it wasn't. It's more on the grayish side on the eyes which I'm not a big fan of. I like my dark, black lines. The only credit I give is that it's not shiny. I used it for one week straight to see if my lashes grew. I probably had to give it more than a week, but I just couldn't. It looked horrible on daily basis! I had to go back to a darker gel liner, Maybelline EyeStudio Gel Eyeliner. For that reason, I cannot answer if it makes your lashes grow or not.

Pros:
* Physicians Formula; most products I have had great experience.
* Love the concept of the idea of lining your eyes, at the same time, growing.
* Silver packaging.
* Sharp brush.
* Lasted a long time.

Cons:
* Not dark enough.
* Too liquid-y.
* It would line certain parts and certain parts have too much serum.
* Hard to redraw because of the serum.
* I didn't use it too long to see if my lashes grew. :X

Would I repurchase: No!

The last couple of months I've been using different masks thanks to wonderful people in my life. :)
Luna sent these three Aqua Sense masks! I have never heard of them until she sent them. Oh mi goodness these smell divine!!! It's probably the best smelling masks I have ever tried. The left one is Hokkaido Grape Mask and it does smell likes gapes. I always loved the smell of grape. :) The middle one is Sapporo Premium Yoghurt Mask and it smelled like Asian milk candies. The last one is Hakone Oats & Honey Blend Masks and it smells like oats. I didn't particularly smelled honey. I love all of them and they even plump my face. I definitely recommend these. :)
Amy Naree gave me this mask to try! This is FaceQ in Luffa + Adlay Mask. These masks don't particularly have scent but they plump your face. Other than plumping your face, it also comes in cute packaging. I was able to try the purple and pink as well thanks to Luna. I definitely recommend these as well! :)
I'm not too sure if Clear Turn is the name of the brand or White. If anyone knows the name of the brand, please tell me. Amy Naree also gave me this mask. :) It doesn't have a particular smell, but I thought I smelled orange for a second. I could be wrong on that! :X I also noticed it has a slight orange in color as well. Most sheet masks I have tried are white, but this has a slight yellowish-orange to it. I see a "C" probably meaning vitamin C, but I could be wrong on that too since I don't understand the language written on the packaging. :X It left my face plump and feeling good. I recommend this too! :)
The last mask I'm going to talk about has no name. :/ If anyone knows the brand, please tell me. I also got this from Amy Naree. All I can say about this mask is that it's very unique! It's not a typical sheet mask but more on the gel type. It kind of reminds me of silicon. You have to stretch the eye and mouth part of the mask to fit your face or eyes and mouth will be shut close. Other than that, it had a smell that lasted the whole time on the face. It reminded me of getting my hair perm. It's definitely unique and great to try different types of masks.

Thank you Luna and Amy Naree for these masks!!! :)

Thanks for this! You know, I've never been a fan of Physician Formula's cosmetics for some reason.
