I have this liner in Chocolate shimmer and it is a really pretty color. It went on smoothly and lasted pretty much all day. My only gripe is that after a month or so, the gel began to dry out and became a bit hard and clumpy. I'd get clumps of it on my brush and it no longer went on smoothly. For me, it's not worth the price so I won't be repurchasing.
I love this product! It's a great mix of a bronzer/blush. I have light tan skin and this just gives me an absolute pretty glow. However, I'm really not a big fan of the packaging. The box is a bit too big to carry around in my make-up bag and the brush it comes with requires a light hand. After trying so many other blush's (Nars Orgasm, tarte, bobbi brown, etc) this has become my beauty staple. I'd give it 5 lippies if it wasn't for the packaging.
Alright, so I bought this awhile back when my face was on the oily side and I absolutely hated it. It left my face completely greasy and it would wipe right off. It also clogged my pores! I stashed it away after a few days. Anyway, I just had a baby and my face went from oily to dry. Instead of buying a new foundation I thought I'd give this another try. So far, not bad. On the plus side, the color is a great match for my light tan skin, evening out my skin and making it look flawless. I do apply this with a brush instead of the sponge. I've gotten quite a few compliments on my skin lately. On the downside, it does accentuate any dry patches I might have and it still rubs off easily. Overall, it's an okay product for those with a medium complexion with normal to dry skin seeking light coverage.

I love this product! As a make up junkie, I'm constantly trying out new eyeshadows from the high end lines like dior and lancome to the drugstore brands like CG and Wet n Wild. This is the shadow that I've kept coming back to for the past eight yrs! The color is gorgeous on pretty much any skin tone (I'm NC 40), it's shimmery without all the glitter, it stays on all day and you just can't beat the price. I hope this is one eyeshadow CG never discontinues (same goes for champagne and mink, those are really pretty too).

I love this product. My skin went from superoily to completely dry and sensitive after having my baby. This seems to be the only cream that quenches my skin without irritating it or causing a breakout. Will repurchase.
I love this product! It makes my hair look glossy, frizz free, and it smells good. Plus the price is really reasonable. A little bit goes a long way so it'll take awhile before you run out of product. To avoid the greasies, use just a small amount and don't apply to the roots especially if you have fine hair. I always get compliments on my hair so this is definitely one of my beauty staples.
I really wanted to like this product especially since it has an spf and is made for oily skin, but, unfortunately, I thought it was horrible! It had a really strong sunscreen scent and made my skin oilier than usual. I found myself using oil blotters all day. The pump was actually difficult to use. It kept getting stuck. Worst of all, it made me break out the second day of using it. Needless to say, this product is ending up in the trash :(
