LOVE this stuff!!! It's incredible. And you can't beat the price! It makes your skin feel very smooth and incredibly silky. Helps even out your skin for applying your foundation. Helps the foundation last longer also. The packaging is great too! Helps eliminate any dry areas remaining after moisturizing.
I don't like the texture of this stuff at all. It's very odd and doesn't blend out well. Wouldn't repurchase. One of the worst foundations I've tried.
I really like this stuff. The packaging (squeeze tube) is great! The coverage isn't bad since I thought it would be more like a TM but still relatively light. I think it blends well and does even out the skin tone pretty well.
The new packaging looks much nicer than the old stuff. I was so excited to try this as I had heard great things. However, I don't like it. First of all, they need more shades! The lighest (ivory) is WAY too dark and very orange!! I used it anyway just to see how it did. I hate the consistency of it. It's feels so sticky and hard sort of on your skin. I couldn't really apply my undereye concealer over it as it's very hard to blend in things over top of it. For a plus, the packaging is great! Wish more had a squeeze tube like this one. Edit: I have fallen in love with this stuff now! Don't get me wrong- alone I'm still not loving it as the color is too dark and it's still got that hard/sticky consistency once it sets. However, I now mix the lightest shade of the Revlon Photoready with this to get my perfect match. Also, it makes the consistency of the Rimmel much better IMO. This stuff really does offer very good coverage and is very reasonably priced.
I was really excited to try this stuff but it's not good. I was hoping for some coverage since it doesn't give you any. It's very sheer and it does have some sparkle to it. It never blends into my skin, it just sits on top very weirdly. The packaging is great though! I wish the colorstay had a pump like this one. I didn't like the sparkle like I thought I would. I makes my dark undereye circles look worse and doesn't cover anything at all. So I would not recommend this stuff. I like the Rimmel Lasting Finish and Maybelline Superstay 24 hr. much better. This stuff doesn't blend out at all! And it's one of the more expensive drugstore foundations. Not good. This would be good for someone who is extremely pale and can't find foundations that are light enough- the lighest is almost white! Edit: So I found a redeeming quality to this stuff finally! Thank god as I would hate to have wasted so much money on a horrible foundation! I now mix it with my Rimmel Lasting Finish and it gives me my perfect shade and makes me like the consistency of both foundations much better.

I really like this powder. I use it to set my foundation everyday. It really makes your skin feel silky smooth and makes your foundation look fresher for longer. However, it doesn't seem to last all day. So I end up reapplying later on in the evening. It makes your skin look very nice!

This stuff is great! First of all its smells AMAZING! So good! Anyway, the color is absolutely beautiful and I like the consistency of the lipgloss. It stays pretty well- amazingly well if you consider that it's $1! Can't beat that! Great stuff! Will buy again and again and will be picking up more colors of this soon!
I really like this eyeshadow primer. It really makes the pigmentation brighter for your eyeshadows. I have never used it with a cream eyeshadow but I plan to try soon. However it does really well for my powder eyeshadows. They stay all day with no creasing and the color is really intensified. And it's only $3! So good deal!

First of all, this stuff smells AMAZING! It's definitely thicker than a tinted moisturizer and feels more like a foundation. Coverage is more like a TM though if not a little more better. It has a nice consistency and smooths on nicely. And of course, there's that delicious smell! And it's really dirt cheap but you get a good amount of product for only $1. So overall, it's nice.

I love this stuff! I originally got the wrong color- be careful because even the lightest color is slightly orange based which is slightly too dark for my skin! I really love this foundation though so I will blend it with a little bit of another foundation that is lighter to make it work. After applying it, I touched my face and it was incredibly smooth and silky feeling. This stuff applies and blends extremely easily and well! Coverage is excellent also. I have dark undereye cirlces I battle with and I always end up using a bunch of concealer throughout the day. However, after using this foundation, my dark circles looked alot better and I didn't need to use as much concealer as usual after! I also have some redness on my cheeks that my foundation doesn't usually cover but this stuff covered extremely well!! Love it!!
