Love this! A very pretty medium bronze shadow with golden ( duh) undertones and just enough shimmer. Unlike so many other bronzes it doesn't have any overt orange or red tones, it's rather neutral. I could see this working for most people. At this price give it a shot!
The name says it all! A classic, neutral light beige eyeshadow with shimmer. Easy to blend and stays put fairly well. All in all, a good buy like most Milani shadows.
I've tried a few of those comb type applicator mascaras and in general have not liked them one bit. This one though is surprisingly okay. Whereas others would apply way too much product to the lashes and make them a clumpy, goopy impossible to comb out mess this product applies fairly smoothly and separates the lashes nicely while lengthening. It did smudge a bit on me though. I recommend trying this one out if you prefer comb applicator mascaras.
Not bad but not outstanding. This mascara adds pretty decent length and separation to lashes but it doesn't really thicken imo. On the plus side though it isn't clumpy and didn't smudge on me. Worth a shot for only about five bucks or so...

A gross, flaky, smudgy clumpy, clumpy, clumpy MESS!!! One of the worst mascaras I've tried in ages. No good in my opinion but YYMV as with most mascaras.

Love the colour of this eyeliner- a deep blackened plum with no shimmer. But the pencil was very hard and a total drag ( pun fully intended) to apply. Getting a fine even line was almost impossible. Not worth the effort for me, would not repurchase.
I didn't care for this at all. Pretty neutral colours (a champagne and medium taupe) but I found them hard to blend and they smeared off my lids within an hour or so. Not impressed. Annabelle's powder shadows eyeshadows are much better value than this stuff.

Very nice cheap lipgloss. Very moisturizing but not at all sticky and it lasts a decent amount of time on my lips. This shade looks somewhat fuschia toned in the tube but applies on me as a sheer cool pink with shimmer, very nice! Would definitely repurchase.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this gloss. It's a lovely peachy pink colour with shimmery. It also has a pleasant moisturizing texture that leaves my lips feeling hydrated even after it wears off and a yummy vanilla scent too. Would definitely repurchase.
Wet'n'Wild blushes rock my world! This shade is a lovely deep, true pink shade with bluish undertones. It is matte and gives a great 'baby doll/just came in from the cold' look to cheeks. Decent lasting power and silky texture. I coughed up a whopping $2.77 for it at Walmart. Total steal.
Sorry to ruin all the positive reviews here but this stuff did practically nothing for my hair. It didn't soften my dry ends or do anything to make my hair look shiny or healthy. In fact my hair was quite dull and flatter than usual after using this which surprised the heck out of me. It does detangle quite well though which is why it warrants one extra lippie. I would not repurchase.
Overall this one is a bit of a mixed bag for me but it still rates a four for being a good value. I love the two peachy nude shades and the medium and dark brown shades. Great wamish toned neutrals that suit my skin tone perfectly even though they are quite shimmery. A light hand is necessary when applying them in order to avoid overkill. But the plain white, beige, dark gold and coppery shades? Not for me. The white and beige are full of chunky glitter have no pigment at all and are extremely messy to apply. The gold and copper are way too harsh on my pale skin but may suit others nicely. YYMV with this one.

This is a great green e/s trio that won't break the bank. The light mint green shimmer is great as a highlighter for the brow and the inner corners of the eyes and the medium olive shimmer is very nice. It's a great everyday shadow for me when I want a change from browns. I also LOVE the dark shimmery forest green in this trio as a liner, it reminds me of MAC Humid at uh...one-sixth the price! lol... Like all the other Mega Eyes trios these shadows are well pigmented and easy to blend. Totally recommend this one if you like greens!
I am seriously loving WnW eyeshadows these days. I've come to like them so much that I haven't been reaching for my MAC shadows much at all lately. I love this palette, the purples are nice but not at all garish, the browns are great neutrals and the two shimmery peach shades are dynamite on my pale, warmish toned skin. Yes they are shimmery but not overly so in my opinion, they blend easily and stay put quite well. At six bucks this is a steal.

Love this eyeshadow trio! The perfect everyday neutrals for my light warmish toned skin. The cream colour is the perfect browbone highlighter, the peach shade contrasts nicely with my eyecolour and the bronze is the perfect not too dark crease shade. These last pretty well too and are easy to blend. At 5$ Canadian a pop I will be buying this forever!
