I bought this about 6 months ago and it looks like I've only used it 3xs. This blush is okay for me. I'm NC40 and its just way too dark for me. I feel like a clown when I wear it. I have these blushes in super orgasm, sin, dolce vita which I use all on a regular basis except this one. I also never use it, its collecting dust in my makeup drawer. Will not repurchase:(
I ris and I'm so glad because I use this almost everyday. It's a nice goldish mauve color that is buildable, so if u want to go out at night u can create more color by layering this. It reminds me a lot like NARS sin blush which I love too. I have this blush in "Lovething" but I reach for gentle way more. I'm NC40 skintone for reference. I will repurchase this :)
Nars e/s are the best!! I ris and love this duo. IMO I think this would flatter darker skintones better. I'm NC40 and the gold hues look really nice. Perfect for all year round wear, the colors are truly universal.
I really like this mascara! I'm basing my review on a few factors. Right now my HG mascara is Lancome Hypnose but the price sucks! (26 bucks) I bought this on a whim and the price caught my eye. For 5 bucks I don't really have a lot to lose. Anyways I love this mascara! It does everything it claims to do. Length, volume sexy lashes is what u will get! There's a lot of drugstore brands that dissapoint me but I am very pleased with this :) Will repurchase!!
I really wanted to love this stuff. I've tried all of MAC's foundations. Studio Fix is the worst. Mineralize satinfinish is still my fav from MAC. I prefer a dewy finish so that's why I thought would enjoy this. I found that it was way too watery, this is like a very sheer tinted moisturizer. I bought this in C4 (NC40 skintone) and it did nothing for me. You do get tons of product for your money, so for someone who likes this its such a good deal. Too bad for me I hated it. :( I will stick with MSF
Lip Gloss -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Lip Gloss - Kir Sugar

Love love lovvve this but what's up with that damn brush!! Kir sugar is one of my top 3 glosses but I had to give it 4 lippies because the quality of the brush is awful. It never goes back to shape, its literally all over the place, so application can be frustrating. Other than that, this gloss is amazing!! The color payoff is vibrant, especially with my NC40 skintone. It's super silky on my lips..not sticky like most. It also last a long time without re-application. Will buy this again :)
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Deep

I love this stuff!!! I actually ris and it's probably one of the best items that I swapped for. The color match is perfect for my NC40 skin. The coverage is fantastic, and it doesn't make my skin look too powdery or cakey.
Dissapointed with this product!! I'm fairly new to BB and was recommended this by the MA to cover up post acne scars and skin imperfections. It offers me no coverage to those problem areas. Like previous reviewers said...it's very oily, and slid all over my face, and didn't conceal well. I gave it 2 lippies because the color match was right on. I bought this in Honey (NC40) skin tone for reference. Also I do like the packaging but I will stick to my Secret camouflage and undercover pot by Laura Mercier. Sorry Bobbi :(
Hmm..I bought this simply because it was part of the Viva glam edition. I like it but I guess I was expecting something more. It's a pretty coral color but on my NC40 skin its ok. I think this would flatter gals with a lighter skintone. Now Gaga for me is the total opposite.
My best friend and I were walking through Walmart when we stumbled across this. We loved the smell of this so much that we both bought the shampoo and conditioner. I couldnt wait to use it so I rushed home and jumped in the shower. My hair is on the curly side so I figured this would moisturize my hair...WRONG!! This crap made my hair so brittle, even applying the conditioner my hair felt like hay. It's the strangest thing..because if I just put ordinary shampoo in my hair I didn't feel like this. I was so dissapointed...I use the conditioner now as a backup shave gel if I run out!! The only things that I liked about it is the smell which is heavenly..and the shower friendly bottle.but :( I will never repurchase!
Lip Liners -Rimmel - 1000 Kisses Stay on Lipliner in Red Dynamite

I was actually impressed by this lip liner! I bought this because on occasion I will wear red lipstick so I wanted a nice liner to pair. I bought it in Red Dynamite and it looks great with my MAC russian red. I think its an nice dupe for "Redd" liner my MAC. I will repurchase these liners again!!
Lets start out first by saying I am a HE kind of girl. I never used to be...but until I got a decent job I start purchasing alot of HE brands like MAC, Lancome, BB, Nars, Dior etc. I was walking through the cosmetics department @ Walmart and saw this lipgloss on sale for 5 bucks..I figured what the heck..I'll buy it. I bought this in "Overtime wine" and in the tube it looked so beautiful and pigmented. It actually reminded me of Kir Sugar from BB. I got home and put it on my lips. The smell is rancid...it smells like melted orange plastic bottles lol. The color is not true to tube at all. It's alot brighter on my lips with less sparkle as represented. The moral of the story is....I'm still a HE girl! It's too bad because I really want to find other drugstore brand makeup dupes but I guess it's not gonna happen. I will not buy this product..and I can't wait till I'm done with this review so I can wipe this shit off my lips! lol
Gingerly is a must have for all you ladies! I think that this would compliment all skin tones..and it has plenty of pigment for darker skin tones. I'm an NC40 and it shows up nicely on me. I goes with anything and its very universal. I do agree with some previous reviews about the plastic lid, its not durable and mine keeps popping off as well. Other than that, I will repurchase this...and for the price its worth it.
I ris and absolutely love this. It's a nice warm rosey nude gloss, that is nicely pigmented and has great staying power. I'm NC40 and I find that Sarong suits me very well! I'm not sure if this is discontinued or not...but I will definately repurchase this!
Olive leaf lotion isn't a lotion. It's very watery. It preps your skin after your done cleansing. I splash this all over my face, and my skin drinks it up. Then I combine it with olive leaf milk...and wow!! Ive noticed more luminocity to my skin, less breakouts, and softer skin. I think the olive leaf kit is designed more for those who have combo/dry skin. I hate the packaging to this. It's a glass bottle with a screw top. I would repurchase this :)
