I don't know if I got a bad batch, but these were so dry. I tried to when I had on nothing but regular washable mascara. They did nothing. I actually bought these accidentally from drugstore.com. I meant to buy the moisturizing pads, which are my HG makeup removers.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous Power Volume 24H (waterproof)

My review is for the black smoke version. I really like it. It's a dark matte color. It does make my lashes look very plush. It's surprising that I like this because I've tried the regular version in very black and I hated it.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze, Forever Fig 510

The color is great. It's a bronzy nude with a hint of pink. At first I thought it might be close in color to something I already had, but it wasn't. For a gloss, I think the lasting power is quite good. The only drawback is that the smell is quite bothersome. Luckily it fades pretty quickly.
I hate this lipstick color. There is not hint of rose at all. It just looks like a grayish brown to me. I didn't find it flattering at all.
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Sandalwood Beige

I'm really impressed with this color. It's an peachy nude that leans a little orange. Like other lipsticks in this line, the formula is quite nice. It wears very well. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.
I love this blush. It's one of my favorites. It one of only two blushes that I've hit pan on. It's a beautiful bronzy rose color. The pigmentation is great and it lasts long. I believe this might also be a dupe for Nars Lovejoy.
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Toast of New York

I bought this when the local drugstore was having a buy one, get one 50% off deal. I was actually more interested in the other color I picked up. However, when I got home and tried both colors, this one blew me away. It's so pretty. It's a reddish brown that is kind of neutral looking. It really looks great with my skin tone. The formula is very nice too. Almost as good as lipsticks that are double the price.
I really like how smooth and even this makes my eye lid. As a primer it works pretty well, but not perfectly. I would say I have some minor creasing after about 8 hours. I've never had the creasing get too bad though.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner

So, it usually take a while for me to find an hg product. However, I think this might be one. I applied this about about 6:30 am. When I returned home about about 7:00 pm (a little over 12 hours later), the makeup hadn't budged. The package says this wears for 8
hours, but it wore for longer. That is a miracle, considering the fact that I have oily, hooded eyes.
Application was slightly tricky for me. I'm used to liners in a pot that you apply with a brush. I never use liquid liner. I thought the felt tip could have been a little stiffer for control. But I find my difficulties are more the result of my inexperience and not a flaw of the product .
So, if you want a dark liner that lasts, you found it.
I really love this soap. It smells so good. The price is good. Overall, I say buy it.
I originally tried this when it was only available in one color. That color was too light for me, so I never had the chance to see how effective it was as a primer. When Benefit released this in a darker color, I ran out to get it. The color is perfect, I really loved the idea of a color correcting primer. However, this product is total crap.
When I first used it, I smeared it on like I would UDPP. Then I put my shadow over it. It did not work well at all. I figured it was my fault. I read the instructions carefully and followed them to the letter. I applied the 3 dots and blended. I mades sure to let it set before applying the shadow. The results were that the creasing didn't start quite as early. Still, I had minor creasing after 5 hours and significant creasing after about 7 hours. Overall, this was crap. It's really expensive too. At $26, the needs to do what is is designed to do.
This product has been in my life off and on since I was a child. Overall, I like it. You have to be careful and use it only once or twice a week (on your face). Like others have mentioned, it is best to use it in the shower. I've tried other scrubs (most cost a lot more than this) and nothing can compare when it comes to leaving my face smooth.
This is also great as a body scrub. I like to use it on my elbows, knees, and feet. Also, I like the pleasant fragrance.
I wanted to like this so much. Lately, I've been into nude blushes. I swatched this in a Sephora and liked it. Unfortunately, at home the next day was a different story. This just looked muddy on me. Kind of like my cheeks were dirty. I'll have to take this back.
I also got this as a GWP. The color is nice (I got bold black). However, I found the large brush very difficult to navigate. It might be one of the biggest brushes that I've ever used. After the second coat, I had made such a mess that I was scared to continue. I've used all sorts of mascaras, and never had all of these problems.
First of all, I don't wear red lipstick that often. However, for my wedding, I decided on red lips. I wasn't into HE lipsticks at the time, so I went to the drugstore. I had it narrowed down to this, Fire and Ice, and Maybelline's Red Revival for my big day. I eventually settled on Fire and Ice with no regrets. Fire and Ice is a lot brighter and looked great in photos.
Moving on to this lipstick. It's really great. It's a beautiful red that is slightly warm without looking orange at all. I wears very well and feels comfortable on the lips. I disagree that this is a dupe for Ruby Woo. I tried Ruby Woo (that is originally what I was planning to wear on my wedding day) and it always looked pink on me. Really Red does not look even slightly pink on me. This also feels a lot more comfortable on the lips than Ruby Woo. Ruby Woo was crazy dry.
