I bought this since I heard many good things about the UD 24/7 Zero eyeliner. I wore it to my staff Xmas party, and after about a half hour, I looked like a raccoon...The black smudged everywhere and ended up underneath my eyes. My eyes looked like they had dark shadows underneath, needless to say I came out horrendous in every picture. The pencil was creamy and pigmented, but it smudged like no other liner and was difficult to get a more defined line since it was too creamy. It can definitely be used as a black base for eyeshadows or to do a smoky look. I almost made my friend purchase this at the time I was buying it bc I was so sure it was going to be the greatest eyeliner ever...I was wrong. Very disappointed...

I love that this foundation really does feel like you're wearing nothing...I had no problem finding my colour...I have warm undertones so all the ones labeled with a 0.5 fall under cool tones and the solid numbers would be the foundations with warm undertones...I was debating between 5.0 and 6.0, the 6.0 however was just a tad darker then my skintone so I went with 5.0... It matches me beauifully, it goes on smoothly, very blendable. The coverage is light-medium, you will likely have to use concealer on your blemishes as I found the foundation evened out my skin, gave me a nice matte, yet glowy look, but you could still see the blemishes through the foundation. This would be a great foundation for everyday wear, however, on special occasions, I would prefer to use a foundation with more coverage. Either way, I would definitely repurchase this foundation!
The BEST black gel liner I've tried! I also have Bobbi Brown gel liners, but the Essence is much better! The formula is creamy and goes on so smooth! I find with the Bobbi Brown it's more thick and doesn't glide on as smooth as this one! It lasts a long time, it's pigmented, it's sooo affordable! It;s my HG of gel liners! Save yourself a lot of money and invest in the Essence gel liner! I've tried other drugstore gel liners and they were ok, but nothing great...I tried Revlon and L'Oreal. Essence all the way!

For the longest time I have stayed away from red lipsticks as I found everytime I tried one on, it made me look like a clown. Until I found Fire and Ice by Revlon! I have a medium skin tone with warm undertones and this colour looks fabulous on me! There is the whole debate on whether or not this lipstick has warm or cool undertones and personally, when I swatch it, it definitely looks like it has warm undertones, but when photographed (maybe due to the lighting?) it looks like it has berry undertones! But I would lean more towards it having warm undertones! It goes on smooth, it's creamy and has a slight satiny finish...it brightens up my whole face without looking clownish and I just can line my eyes, put on some foundation, and voila! A simple, yet beautiful look for a night out.
It was suggested by a Sephora employee that I purchase the MUFE contour kit as I was on the market for one. I bought the medium shade, I have a medium skin tone with warm undertones. The powder showed up orangey on my skin and the 'highlight' did not even show up on my skin at all. This product was definitely not for me. Still on the market to find my HG contour powder...
