It's my go to eyeliner most of the time because even thought I love gel eyeliners for their staying power, it can be tedious since you need a brush. My eyelid is half-double eyelind and it makes so many eyeliners smudged on me like CRAZY. But this one, I use it to mainly tightline and line in between the lashes, it doesn't really budge! I loveee it.

Very pretty when I use it to line my lower lash lines. It gives such a pretty pop of color!
I got it in brown because I prefer brown eyeliners in general. I don't like the brush for it because it's pretty flimsy. I prefer pen looking like ones because it's easier to use those to line in between the lashes. I have the typical half-double eyelids so I prefer to tightline, and these are hard to do so because the brush is so flimsy. And I don't think it's waterproof either.
Very pretty pink with a hint of shimmer. It has pretty good pigmentation too.

I'm NC25 and I bought the light/medium one since you usually need a darker concealer to hide your dark circles. It does an okay job at covering dark circles but it does get cakey and settle into fine lines throughout the day. It's not moisturizing enough I guess. I actually bought this out of a whim because it was on a sale at RiteAid. I didn't have much expectations and it actually was an okay product overall. I'm still in search for a good concealer for my dry under eye circles!
It's my first brow pencil so I don't have a comparative review but I think it's a decent product because it gets its job done. I just don't like the brow gel because I don't really use that and the brow gel seems to have a strong staying power because I just swiped it on the back of my hand once to see how it would look like and it was so hard to get it off. I use a light hand with it because it can make your eyebrows look overwhelming.
I bought this specifically for my acne spots because it has tea tree, which made me to believe that it won't be too bad to use it on top to cover it. I am NC25 and I use the lightest shade and it blends it perfectly. I just dab it (since it's like a concealer stick) directly on my acne scars and then blend out the edges with a concealer brush. Then, I apply powder on top and it looks flawless!

I really wanted to like this after watching xteener's rave about it. Sadly, it's cakey on me. My under eye area is pretty dry so even after applying moisturizing the area with an eye cream, this does not work :/ The powder is horrible too. Don't use it!! I like the green color to neutralize my acne scars but other than that, I won't repurchase. ------------------------------------------------- UPDATE: I went back to it after hating it. Now I love it. I still don't use it for my dark circles but I use it for any imperfections on my face. It's creamy and has decent enough coverage to cover them up. I use the light shade and salmon shade - sometimes I mix them to match the color for my skin. Pretty good! I'm gonna buy one more before I leave for Korea!!!!
Packaging is so classy. Color is beautiful. I pat the color on my lips for a more subtle color because I am not courageous enough to pull off a full on fuschia color. Staying power is just okay. Not moisturizing but it's not too matte either. I love applying just simple eye makeup and putting this lipstick to give a subtle glow to my face with the beautiful light fuschia color.

Love it! The scent is yummy. It keeps my lips hydrated for a pretty long time. Highly recommended! It also contains 82% certified organic ingredients.
The color is gorgeous on my Asian NC25 skin. It's such a pretty peach/coral color! :)) I love it! The packaging is very classy too. I docked one lippie for its staying power.

I have very oily t-zone area so I had high hopes for this product but unfortunately it is not worth the money. I've applied it various ways. I've applied it after moisturizing my face, after foundation, after full makeup. It does have a mattifying texture right after I apply it but after within an hour, my nose looks oily again. There is a generous amount of product so I just carry this around instead of a powder to mattify my nose area from time to time. But you have to be careful with that though, because if you don't blend it well enough, it'll leave a weird residue on the tip of your nose. Maybe I just have an extra-oily nose
I am not a lipgloss person because I just don't like the shiny texture on my lips. I prefer matte, natural looking lipsticks a lot better. Anyway, I got this on a whim a few years back because I didn't know which lipgloss to get from all the makeup counters in Nordstrom. I was a pretty newbie in makeup. I am really glad my friend recommended me Lancome juicytubes. This color is pretty sheer so you can use it as a clear gloss almost. I just mainly use a bit on the center of my lips to have them stand out a bit.

Since the color isn't pretty definite, I have to tone down my lips first. In order to do that, I have to moisturize my lips very well first. Then I apply a bit of foundation or tinted moisturizer on my lips. The color then comes out really pretty. The lasting power is very disappointing though.. eh. I guess you get what you paid for.
