Not all beauty products are the same, so if you are having trouble choosing between those two very similar eyeliners, look to this special guide to help you find the perfect product you desire. Want to see how your perfume, makeup, skincare and haircare favorites stand against each other? Read on and find out!

1. Fragrance: Dolce & Gabbana: Rose The One ($43.19, fragrancenet.com)

Rose always makes a light and romantic fragrance, so it’s no surprise that either of these two rose-filled scents caught our eye. And although rosy blooms might be the biggest note found in both of these perfumes, certain notes do set them apart. If you’re looking for a more light and delicate fragrance, Bvalgari’s Rose Essentielle keeps it simple yet chic with it’s notes of sandalwood, rose and patchouli. However, if you’re looking for a much stronger aroma, Dolce & Gabbana’s Rose The One uses mandarin and musks to help you make that unforgettable entrance.
 
2. Makeup: Blinc Eyeliner-Black ($29, fragrancenet.com)

 Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Eyeliner-Black ($38.50, fragrancenet.com)

A flawless cat-eye is totally timeless, so if you’re looking for a long-lasting liner, both of these liquid eye liner products will get the job done effectively. But, if you’re going for a more matte look, make the Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Eyeliner in Black your top pick. Otherwise, the Blinc Eyeliner in Black makes do for one amazing and water-proof style.
 
3. Skincare: Prescription Youth Skin Instant Erase Eye Serum ($55, fragrancenet.com)

DDF Bio-Moisture Eye Serum ($96, fragrancenet.com)

In order to protect the delicate skin around your eyes, it’s good to turn to a trusty eye serum to promote a supple and a wrinkle-free eye area.  For more of an anti-aging product, turn to the Prescription Youth Skin Instant Erase Eye Serum to erase fine lines and wrinkles. And if  hydration is more of your concern, let your peepers fall in love with the DDF Bio-Moisture Eye Serum which blends retinol and a Vitamin B Complex to hydrate under eyes fast.
 
4. Hair Care: Kerastase Age Premium Masque Substanif ($54, fragrancenet.com)

Our heat-styled and chemically processed locks tend to put up with alot, so it’s really important to treat your tresses to a good hair mask at least once or twice a week. Now it’s true that both of these masks work great to restore lost moisture back into the hair, but the Bumble and Bumble Deeep Treatment works best for those with extreme color and sun damage, while the Kerastase Age Premium Masque Substantif can be used on all hair types.
