Good quality, and good coverage... but the color matches are not great, and this powder foundation has the tendency to turn me orange by the end of the day.
This is a good foundation, slightly too sheer for me though. It's decent--no breakouts, good enough color matches, etc... but I prefer Kinetin more.

This is the best foundation I have found to date, drugstore or otherwise. It goes on really smooth (love the gel-like texture), blends effortlessly, and looks really natural--slightly dewy. The color match I found is great, too (Sand). I wish it didn't come with that useless ball-applicator thing, though, as it makes it hard to get the product out when the level is running low.

LOVE this gloss! High quality, complex-colored, shimmeringly multifaceted, and long-lasting. This gloss goes with basically anything, and looks great over lipsticks, especially pinky-browns and nudes. I like the smell, too, and the packaging is tres glamorous!
I really like this lipbrush -- it's great for girls with bigger lips like me. I really like the packaging too.

I have the Bronze Shimmerbrick -- I like it but it is not worth the $35 price tag. All the colors look practically the same on me if used individually as eyeshadow, so I just swirl all of them around to use it as a blush/bronzer. It's a nice shade, maybe a bit too shimmery for some. It does last all day, though... but I will probably not repurchase because it is too expensive for what it is.

I was kind of disappointed that this wasn't as pigmented as MAC's version. Also, the tube makes it hard to finish all the product up. But on the plus side, this is a very fun color -- holographic pewter rainbow glitter, and it does stay put all day. I like to put it along my lower lashline over soft black pencil e/l for a fun, sparkly look.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. It's a perfect "when in doubt" gloss. It's not as shiny/tacky as other Lipglasses, but I like it that way.
Just adding my praise for this shade. Just wonderful. No wonder it's a universal staple!
It's like melting a construction cone and applying the hot plastic to my lips. Needless to say, VERY unflattering.
Looks nasty and garish on my skintone (NC30). I don't see how anyone outside of the theatrical/sex worker trades could ever pull this one off.
This instantly transforms any lipstick (pink/purple based) into WHAM! Something FANTASTIC! I can't wear this alone as it is too light, but it is indispensible for layering purposes.
Pretty gray-lilac with glitter. There are only a couple pieces of glitter though, so it's not too teenybopper or anything. I can't wear this alone because it washes me out, but it looks gorgeous with other lippies.
This is well-loved for a reason. This neutral pearled pinky-peachy-brown looks fabulous on me! I just wish the consistency was a tad thicker.
WONDERFUL nude toffee shade! Absolutly a staple.
