I got it for only $1.99 so I'm not out much, but it is basically worthless to me. After applying 1 coat on my eye it looked identical to the eye that didn't even get a coat yet. The brush is kinda weird, but I may clean it up & keep it around just in case I wanna play with it with another brand. So yeah, a waste of 2 bucks.
The scent is a classic Cover Girl makeup scent, it reminds me of Noxema., it smells clean. Classic Pink is such a great basic that every girl should own. I hate that CG tests on animals so I feel guilty if I buy a CG product.
I do not like this mascara at all. It didn't even look like I had put on mascara, unless you count the mess it made all around my eyes from being so wet. I saw a guru on the Today show endorse it and at $1.50 a tube I didn't think I had anything to lose, glad that it wasn't any more expensive than that.

Couldn't keep the pads in, I was afraid it would fall out as soon as I squeezed it on my lashes. Threw it away.
I really like this mascara, I apply the primer then curl my lashes. It seems to work a lot better for me this way. The only fault I can find is it is hard to wash off, for me.
It's a very nice shadow, original & all but it looked hideous on me. I usually look good in all browns/greens but not in his one. I am brown eyes, black fair & fair/pale skinned. Can't say I'll ever pay $15 for an eyeshadow again.

My HG foundation, I love everything about this product. It smells great, blends perfectly, and doesn't cause me any breakouts. I will buy this over & over, forever unless they quit selling it.

I really like this shadow. I use it as a highlight or just alone on the entire lid. It meshes well with pretty much any other color. It's crease-proof too, so that's a bonus.

The previous reviewer took the words right out of my mouth.
This is pretty good, I've never used any high end primers, just L'Oreal & ELF and they all seem to work just fine. I don't see any reason to spend a lot of money for something you can get for cheap.
I like this color, it is a shimmery peach. For me, it is better as a top color over a darker or matte opaque shade. It is a typical Cover Girl lipstick as far as staying power & moisture goes.

The only red that has ever looked good on me. I feel like a clown in red lipstick though.
LOVE! This scent is to.die.for!! The formula is great too, not greasy, very moisturizing. I buy this at Cracker Barrel.
I can get the blackest, longest, feathery-est, volumized lashes with a curl but the mess around my eyes is the deal breaker. The brush is neat looking but messy and the formula is just too wet. Way too much work. I won't throw it away but I won't repurchase either.

I wear this daily, mainly because it's effortless. I wish this line had more of a variety in color, they are mostly drab colors. I need a great peachy-pink shimmer to match my favorite lip color.
