I used this daily for quite a while. I won't say it's HG, but I really do like the color on my skin tone, as well as the application. Probably won't repurchase, because I've found other products I prefer, but this is good too!

I actually love this liner! The staying power is pretty fair. It does tend to fade somewhat, but I get around this by applying, blending, layering, and blending again. I actually ended up returning MAC fluidline because it didn't compare to this. It also works well as a cream shadow for smokey eyes. Will repurchase!
This is a great shade on my cool toned pale skin. It looks very natural and quite sophisticated. The staying power isn't great, but I only paid two dollars for it, so I'm alright with reapplying if I need to.
This is straight up orange on my lips. I love the color in the tube, but not so much on me. I've been using it for a stain, since sheer application is the only way to keep this looking normal-ish on me. The staying power is pretty fair though, and I always buy Rimmel lipsticks when they're on sale, so it's worth what you pay for it.
This is a great product to use as a primer, provided you apply it lightly. I also use it on my brow bone and even on the cheeks as a highlight. The only think I don't like about it is the packaging. I wish the pencil was a twist, instead of needing to sharpen it. I'm thinking about depotting it into a jar.
I was using the highlight as foundation due to it being only slightly darker than my natural skin tone. However, the staying power was terrible and it came off within minutes. I've never tried the contour, but the patchy application of the highlighter makes me not want to
I wanted to love this, but it emphasises every crevice in my lips, makes them appear dry, and makes my pale complexion rather corpse-looking. It may work better on other skin tones, however.

I LOVE this stuff. The smell is amazing, the texture is great, and it really softens my tough cuticles. I also find it works well on calloused fingers. Will repurchase!!

This works, but unfortunately it causes my nailbeds to peel like crazy. I pile on the cuticle cream whenever I use this.

These palettes are very pigmented. It's both good and bad: good in that very little product is needed, but bad in that they are not overly bendable. I don't think I would repurchase, but it might be good for Halloween makeup...?
I love this palette. I'm able to mixture shades together to get the perfect result. A little goes a long way, and I've used this every day for the last six months without hitting pan on any of the shades. It's also the only cheap concealer with a white. Being very pale, this is an extreme plus for me. The only con is that I need to make sure I clean it all off. It's not the best for my pores. Aside from that, it's nearly HG
After a few weeks, I did notice a change in the overall thickness and strength of my lashes. Fewer of them fell out and I could see a few new ones growing where I previously had bare gaps. The only real issue I had is that the applicator tended to apply the product unevenly. Sometimes I would get globs that stuck my eyelids together, which wasn't pleasant. Less is definitely more with this product for that reason. But overall, I would repurchase.
I really don't notice a difference in feel or staying power with this product. As well, the mist is really uneven and tends send drops of product running down the center of my face. It's refreshing, but not necessary in my opinion.
I love the colour range of ChG polishes. They apply really well, but chip and peel easily. A good base coat is a must with these!
I wanted a good brush for smudging and crease blending. This brush was coarse, scratched my skin, and shed like you would not believe. I had to return it.
