Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black

My first gel eyeliner ever. Love the price. The gel is very fluid and goes on nicely with a soft angled brush. I didn't like the brush it came with. The bristles were too stiff for my eyes. Fun product!

Love this powder. It's super cheap for the amount of product you get. Doesn't clog my pores, mattifies almost all day (6-8 hrs). Sometimes I do a touch up every now and then with the pressed powder version. No fragrance smell and I like the fact that it's transclucent! The packaging is kinda cheap, but it works fine. Edit: I don't like this stuff anymore and I don't even really know why. I guess because it's very sheer. I may try using it as finishing powder or under the eyes for sealing in my concealer or for fallouts that occur when I'm applying my eyeshadows . It's not horrible.. but I don't feel like it does much. I'd rather use the Palladio loose powder (even though it has a fragrance and this doesn't). I'll keep it on hand just to have around for emergencies... I don't think I'll buy again.
Will not repurchase. The large brush is awkward, thus making it difficult to get the corner lashes and bottom lashes. Also, this stuff clumped on me a little bit. The size of the brush is nice and helps give volume but it's just not my favorite and it doesn't move me.
Love this foundation. Blends really well with a stipling or duo fiber brush. Lots of shades so you can find the one that matches you best. Leaves my combo skin matte (the oily skin formula) and provides great coverage. Well worth the $. Try it out! Wish it had a pump, but perhaps compaines don't provide one so you can run out quicker and buy more! Just a theory. ;o)
Been using this puppy for years! I love it! So moisturizing and it smells lovely. I use it under my lipsticks for added moisture. My grandma always used to buy me this when I was little and now I'm an Avon rep. I put it in my customer's orders as a freebie gift with purchase!
I bought this blush in Tender Rose. OMG, I loves me this blush! It truly is super blendable and it goes on with just enough color and you can layer if you want for more color or keep blending if you want natural color. Highly recommend! ***** Edit: I still think this is a fab product but this particular color has a ton of shimmer. Great for evenings, IMHP it's a bit too much shimmer for day time. Also: be super careful not to drop this product on the floor. It will crack on you something horrible. I dropped mine on plain carpet and the blush shattered in half (nothing happened to the compact). I did get to see just how thin of a layer they put in those pans... not too much product but I think it's still great for the price. Also you may want to go by the colors suggested for your skin tone range. The True Match line has a letter system. I'm Neutural so.... I plan on buying a different color next time under the nuetural options... of course you can buy whatever color suits your fancy! ;o)
I bought this product on clearance at Big Lots for a whopping $2.50! I was really excited to try it out. I like the design and the fact that it came with a mini makeup brush instead of a sponge (which can become filled with bacteria after a few uses). The little brush was cheap and the hairs help falling on my face. Also, the formula for this product is not good. It left a cake-y residue with brush AND sponge application. It also is very light. I even got the medium translucent shade and it looks too light on my skin. I think it also clogged my pore and caused breakouts near my forehead and on my nose. It's no wonder it was discontinued. At least I didn't pay much and got to try it out.
I love this proudct! It give a nice, sheer cover and has a nice scent that does fade after some time (if you aren't into scented makeup that's some good news). It's a cheap product and it looks nice over any foundation. I prefer this over many other loose powders that I've tried before. I do wish the packaging was a little more durable, the top comes off quite easily so you can't travel with it. Other than that, I think it's great. This product lasts a long time.

I didn't like the formula. I agree with the previous poster about the want. It's rather unique. I wouldn't buy again. Doesn't darken enough, kind of a dry product. I was rather meh about it and would return it if I could....

I don't like this product. I tried to make it work, but the product is very dry and hard to apply. The brush is a joke, it may be useful for spot treatments on blemishes, but other than that... yeah it's not big enough. You almost have to warm it up on your hand first for the product to spread. I used a wet sponge to blend. Don't waste your money.

Love this bronzer. It doesn't have a ton of sparkles and it it goes on light, never too dark. I love it! I use it for contouring. I like this because of the price and the amount that you get, but I think I'd repurchase in a darker shade. I already have tan skin so it doesn't really show up too well.
I love this bronzer! It's awesome, I use it almost everyday. I love the quality and color. I'm excited to try their new natural line of bronzers. I highly recommend this product.
this product is okay. It's a bit too creamy and oily for my taste. I have very oily skin, so I don't like products that will add more oil. The powder it comes with helps to counter the oil. I find this a difficult product apply. I kind of pat it in and then use a concealer brush. I found that works better than using a sponge. I chose this product because it had a very yellow-y color and I thought it would help to counter my dark under eye circles. I just don't like how it sometimes streaks or looks cake-y. Yuck!
