I'm not a fan of this mascara. This mascara makes my lashes look spidery which isn't the look I wanted. The formula smells alright and the packaging looks nice so for that reason I give a 2.
This mascara isn't waterproof as it claims to be. I was looking for a mascara I could use when going swimming and found this made me look like a raccoon. It's a mascara to use when going to the cinema and watching a movie you know you're going to cry but apart from that it didn't serve it's purpose for me.
This is a good product however I cannot use this as an all over the lid color/base, only the lids. It does have good staying power however I find the formula more oily that the painterly paint pot. I find it time consuming using this on the lids, then putting bare canvas or painterly on the upper half so I wouldn't repurchase this again.
Nice paint pot and base for eye shadows. It lasts all day without creasing. It does crease on the next day when I've gone to bed with my eye makeup on those late nights/mornings. Good color that I can put all over lid rather than just on my lids.
I use this brush to apply cream concealer under my eye. I could also use this for paint pots but I have yet to try this. It does a good job at placing color where I want then lightly blending it out. No need for an extra concealer blending brush. After using this I can set my concealer under my eyes straight away.

I use this brush for contouring my face. It's great and places the color where I want it. I have tried this brush for blush but didn't get it to look right. I'll try this again for blush in the future. I've also used the top of the brush for highlighting. This works great however I prefer one product per brush just in case there is color left on the brush.

I love this brush for setting my face. I use this brush for both loose powder and compact. It gives a sheer finish rather than a very powdery look which I have got from using a kabuki and powder puffs. I have also used this brush for applying foundation. It works well for that too however lately I've just wanted to put foundation on the redness of my cheeks, rather than all over my face. I've tried this brush for applying blush but couldn't get it to work for me because the surface is too flat. I'm considering buying another one of these to blend blush, contour and bronzer together, to finish the look.
I like this brush for applying my blush however sometime I feel like the area where it's applied blush is too big. To use I just sweep over blush palette then pat gently just below the cheek bones. Using this directly on my apples makes me look sun burnt.

I really like this brush for placing and blending color in my crease. It fits perfectly for my smallish eyes. For the outer v I still use a 219 to get a more defined look. For above my crease I still use the 217 to blend out the color. I've also used this brush to set my concealer under my eyes and found that other brushes can do that just as well.
Love this brush for my brows. It fills them in perfectly and also spreads out the color when I've put too much on.
I use this brush for lining for eye with Fluidline. Works great and I am able to create a thin line. For the outer of my eye I need to apply 2 strokes to get a thicker effect. If I lost this brush I would def need to buy another.
In terms of performance this is a very good treatment for the hair - leaves it soft, manageable, smelling nice and very conditioned. It is very pricey though.

This product makes my hair feel weighed down. The texture of the conditioner is sticky.

Good eye cream for night time. It does not serve a good base for concealer however it is very rich and beneficial at night. I find that I have to alternate with other eye creams because using this every night gives me little bumps.

This is a good eye makeup remover. However it does cost a lot for a bottle that doesn't last too long. Happy to receive it as a GWP however I would not buy it on its own.
