This is a very nice creamy eyeliner. It is VERY black and makes my blue eyes really stand out. The price is appropriate for this because the pencil is quite long and you have to use very little. My only gripe about this is that it smears very easily, but then again, that's what soft eye khols do and ya can't help it.
I really wanted to like this shadow because at the counter it looked so pretty. At home I found it to be greener than I expected (it looked more blue in the store). The pigment doesn't pick up well, even when used wet. I find this is one of the only shadows I ever use dry, though. It looks good on the lid with a black shadow on the outer corners of the lids. This is a nice color to experiment with, however, I will not buy it again.
I love this shadow!! It is a pale champaigne yellow color that is VERY shimmery. I like to use it to highlight and contour my browbone and lids. After it's been on a while, it creates a nice glowy look. Goes with everything, too!
This is the absolute best eyeshadow base I have ever purchased! It matches my pale skintone and blends well. The consistency is creamy and feels nice. I don't like the fact that the paint will sometimes just start coming out of the tube, but if you tape the tube on a table first then you should not have this problem. I have very oily lids and this keeps the shadow on almost all day, but it still creases at the very end of a night out with friends or whatever. You should get this stuff. JUST GET IT!!!
This is an interesting gloss. The formula of it is different than the older MAC glosses; it's not as sticky and has a very creamy feel (feeels like melted peanut butter). It lasts quite a while as well. As for the color - it's a pinkish-beige gold with tons of sparkles. That is the one thing I don't like about this gloss..the sparkles. If you use a very light coat of this, it makes a really nice shimmery, almost clear gloss. I was very surprised to find that this did not wash me out (im a PPP/LLL, cool/neutral tones). If you're looking for a slightly outgoing, fun gloss then this is the one for you.

WOW. I can't believe how well this mascara works! I was skeptical when I bought it last night; usually CG products don't work too well with me. Boy was I proved wrong! This mascara comes in a cool looking red tube, and it looks like there is a good amount inside of it. When I put just ONE coat of this on, my lashes really did look 3 times as thick and VERY long. I swear it looks like i'm wearing false lashes! I already have black, long lashes..so if you other ladies that are like me are doubting if this mascara will give anything else to your lashes, don't worry! IT WORKS SO WELL! I LOOOVE IT!
I am absolutely in love with this perfume! It comes in a cute little bottle that looks somewhat like two flames twisted together with a matching cap. I would describe the smell as a mix of vanilla and oriental spices. It's a very "warm" smell and it's beautiful! A little goes a long way with this stuff; I can spray just a little on my neck and/or clothes and it smells great all day and even into the next day! I get a lot of compliments when I wear this and at about $12 or $13, what's not to like?

I really like this pigment. At first I thought it was too light and it didn't show up a lot on my LLL/FFF NW20 skin. But then I discovered the trick of using eyedrops with it! When applied wet as an eyeshadow, it looks like a pale/beige very shimmery shadow. It can be added to clear gloss to make a PERFECT light pink gloss! It's so pretty that way. Now I mostly use it for highlighting brow bone but I also mix it with my foundation. This is absolutely amazing, gives my skin a very nice "glow" but also somewhat sparkly but not too much. I said I wouldn't purchase this again only because this jar will last FOREVER.

Pretty good mascara. Easy to remove, but it makes black rings around my eyes when I try to wash it off.

Stays on pretty well if used with a base. Great colors.
Cool colors with nice shimmer but this cream stuff creases in about 5 minutes, seriously!
I bought this in a purple color and I love it. It doesnt flake or smuge and really gives you dramatic lashes! It's very easy to remove too.
This mask is pretty good. I don't use it that often because it brings my blackheads to the surface but not enough to get rid of them. It makes my skin really soft though. It's EXTREMELY cheap too.
