Cute product. I purchased this in Fair 01. Three sections inside the tan colored compact, one with a tinted lip blam, a touch on cream bronzer and a pressed powder. The lip balm is a pretty coral gold color, but seems a bit dry and not very moisturizing. The touch on bronzer I actually like a lot, a rosey bronze, its creamy and blends to a powdery finish. The loose power isn't anything special, but its nice enough. I bought this on a whim, and I honestly dont see myself using it that often, it may be going back to the store.

Horrible. 18 dollars for a white cakey mess. Think twice about buying this pencil--looks great on your hand, but on your eye, looks like an infection. hah

Great stuff, I can see this really becoming a staple of mine. I bought Taupe-medium brown type of color. Keeps my brows in place without flaking or being too stiff like a clear mascara. Fab. Next I'll try the brow powder!
Over the past year-I've developed an allergy to most powder eye shadows-at first I thought it was a certain color, or brand, but lately its been almost every shadow. Anyway--I've been using this for a few days now-without any irritation whatsoever! Vanilla Sugar is a beautiful peach/minimal shimmer shadow. The texture is so velvety, and applies so smoothly. Wonderful stuff-I will definietly buy other colors!

Love love love this! I bought this especially for my Senior Voice Rectial. I forked over the 35 bucks, and I am so glad I did. This is so beautiful-so glowy and amazing! Perfect for when the lights will be shining on me next week! (Nov 12)!
I really love the color of this. I just really wish it wasn't so clumpy--I was looking for an upgrade from the Maybelline Great Lash-Royal Blue, and the texture of theirs seems to be better honestly. I am forced to use my lash comb for MAC's color pros, not something I'm that crazy about. But this IS a fun mascara and it does end up looking great in the end. Especially with a primer. I may buy the Peri-wink wink color as well.
I bought this for what it is, a colored mascara, and thats all I got. It makes your lashes white, but very clumpy, and smelly too--uck the smell of these mascaras is horrible, I can smell it all through the day. I bought this to go under another one of their colored mascaras, kind of as a primer--it fails in that category. But if you want white lashes this is your best bet, but be prepared to use your lash comb.

I really hated this. Did it really clean me at all? I felt dirtier after my shower than when I went in. I got it in scent Honey Bee. Like the smell, but hate this product-I just dont get it. Plus the label came off the first time I used it. I would not use this again.
I actually bought this color for a Halloween costume, but I actually really love the teal green, gold and silver color so much! The glitter is smaller and not as chunky as other brands. I love the look of the bottle with the cute ring! My only gripe is that It started to chip the morning after I applied it. That could definitely be solved witha top coat though.
I'm trying to decide whether to take this back to the store or not. I like it at first, smells nice, and feels moisturizing and tingly with a tiny hint of color--but then the smell turns fake a plastic cleaner or something, and it seems to dry out my lips even more. Plus the painted label on the outside is getting a crackled effect? Whats that about? I always try to stray from my Rosebud, but I guess I'll never find anything better.
These cargo blushes are absolutely the most wonderful, finely milled, easily blended blushes out there. And I have tried tons, but these blend the easiest, distribute evenly and look so natural. This color most of all looks so warm and really brightens up my whole face. I've been wearing it everyday since I bought it (a few months now)! I love these even more than my NARS blushes. Highly Recomended!

Wow! I bought this today on a whim, not knowing anything about it, let alone all these rave reviews. I did figure out it was a knock off of After Party--which I had always wanted to try. I am so glad I bought this! For so long I've been searching for a product that would smooth my pony tail frizzes and broken hair fly aways--and I have finally found it--millions of bottles later. So cheap too! Definitely recomended! My pony tail has never looked sleeker or better!

Love love this! great brownish pinky nude color. Stayed on for a long time and was smooth and moisturizing! I definitely want to get the other colors of this yummy balm/gloss!
I bought this in a pinch a few days ago when my usual Paula's Choice 2% BHA was horriblly breaking me out. It was a bad batch I think. Anyway, I've been using this for the past 5 days, and my skin has improved so fast, and has completely recovered from the breakout! Thank you Clinique! I will definitely buy this again, since you get more and its less expensive that PC!
Like this one a lot, the only shade I dont care for that much in it is Puppy, its a bit too warm for me--but overall this is a great Palette-the blushes are great too! These DD palettes are a great way to try a lot of Stila shades for a cheaper price! A great deal if you ask me--everyone should have this one and the Grey one!
