I actually really like this tool. The bristles are firm enough, yet it is gentle on the skin. One of the better brow brushes I've used. The comb is by far the best! It really separates my lashes after I use my mascara.
I seriously don't know what's all the rave about. Nothing special about this mascara. I'm a big mascara junkie and I've tried almost everything out there from high ends to low. The packaging is ridiculously large and the brush is huge as well. Curled my lashes with my Shu Uemura curler and once I put this on, I just saw my lashes droop back down. Not very happy at all. Will not repurchase again.

GREAT brush! Works well with mineral foundation! Really gives a smooth even look!! Very amazed at the quality of the brush considering the price. It's very affordable, and it has a very cool appearance too! Must buy! Edit: Just found another great use for this! Works wonderfully as a contouring brush as well! Really blends and buffs those harsh lines!

Nice moisturizing lip balm. Simple, and nice smell. The only thing that is missing is SPF, otherwise it's great.

Smooth application. Nice sheer, but visible color. Just the right amount of shine. Price is ok, but I'm sure I can easily find another dupe that is cheaper.

Did not keep my lips moisturized. Made it very greasy and does not last long at all. Taste very bad (and I didn't even lick my lips). Will not purchase again.

Different texture from many lip glosses that I've tried. I got this in "Gelly 06" this is clear. Wears very well without that greasy feeling, great staying power. Very nice shine that is glassy and not greasy. Will definitely repurchase!
Broke me out like crazy. I don't this it's a coincidence either. Didn't do much to help boost moisture. Not upset that this line is already discontinued.

Pros: Amazing staying power. Reasonably priced. Very pigmented color. Cons: Messy, useless sharpener (that came with it on the end of the pen). Drags a little. Will maybe buy again if I don't find anything better.

A good lip balm if it wasn't so ridiculously expensive! I got this as a gift, but I personally won't buy this because there other lip balms that I can get for a fraction of the price. NOT worth the money. Edit: I've come to like this lip balm more with the warming weather because it's not sticky or greasy. Good for under lipstick/gloss. But the price is still steep regardless.
Great natural, buildable color. I'm between an NC20 and NC25. Looks very natural on my skin tone.
Exactly what I was looking for. Much usable than lip erase (pro line) and less "pale" than Myth. Fleshpot is a color that either you hate it or love it...really depends on what look you are after. It's best to use with a nude gloss on top as well...used alone is too opaque and chalky. Perfect color for strong eye make up.

My HG under eye concealer so far! Super smooth and blendable, perfect consistency. Lasted a day without fading under eyes. Melted right into skin upon application. Did not crease into lines under eyes. Definitely will purchase again!
Pros: Great Value and pigment. Ease of application and very blendable. Cons: Too loose (I recommend to use as if it's a loose powder shadow), slight creasing after a few hours (I have oily lids so it's understandable). Will purchase again.

Pros: Great price, color, precision point, and packaging. Cons: Flakes off, moderate staying power, dries too fast on contact with eyes (drags eye lids). Will NOT repurchase.
