Wanted to love, waited several weeks to give this an honest review but i will not repurchase. Glides smooth, widens and brightens the eye but for me just for a couple minutes. Idk maybe my waterline is too watery but after a couple minutes it curdles. It looks disgusting. I have to literally rub it off with a swab. the hunt continues for something that masks my reddish waterline. Also kind of pricey & i always bump the cap. A miss for me.
Flakes!!! the formula also make me tear Maybe im allergic. Also the wand is too big to grab the inner corner lashes. My hunt continues...
Spotlight is great. Highlights cheekbone very beautifully. You cant beat the price just $1. I have oh la lift too and i like this better. It reflects light great. I always keep an extra for my go bag
Not sure how i feel ab this yet, still trying it out. The package is great, secure and generous. The texture blends well but my issue seems to be with color. I dont think its very pigmented. Coral reef Is a very vibrant color in jar but not so much once applied. I am also very light handed with it cause it looks very scary in jar for work.. Ill update soon. 9/18-Update Will give more lippies, finally got the hang of it. Very subtle and natural. ADORABLE color and Easy to blend

The prettiest color not as dark as i wanted but looks great on my olive skin. I never have glitter fallout & it does last all day, no more racoon eyes. My only issue aside from The price $$$ is i wish it were retractable. I stopped using sharperners since HS so thats a little backward but otherwise i am very happy
Classy beautiful color for my olive warm skin. Great neutral color for the office but not boring at all. Creamy texture w/no high shine. A bit expensive for drugstore brand but a must have for daily use. A great shade, something you dont have to think about and you know it will always look great. Makes me look very feminine in my business wear. Package is good, secure and goes all the way down. Update- long lasting too! Try pink velvet flirty for the office
How beautiful, a classic pin up orange/red. Great texture very creamy but semi matte. On the expensive side for a drugstore brand but its worth it. Nice package, see-thru cap n goes all the way down.I luv it! I bought this based on all the positive reviews n am VERY happy with the purchase. Update! Try apricot blaze, a lil less daring but still gorgeous!

Its a pretty color, similar to mac nicki but dries my lips out. Leaves a disgusting residue. I dont reapply my LP all the time but with this i had to constantly reapply to get rid of streaks. I did not like the smell either but after a couple tries didnt even notice. The texture is my biggest complaint at least its only $2. Will not repurchase will try CG temptress for a mac nicki dupe, tried that n its A bit more moisturizing. Bad packaging always touches the cap. Update: After a while on the lips it does clump. Im changing lippies. Not flattering!

Longlasting undereye concealer w/good coverage but its TOO dry, settles into fine lines, dries so quickly you cant blend well. Not good with eye brightening products it simply becomes a chalky mess. Also on the expensive side and not a very hygienic application system. For a $25 EL DW product i expect a little more 9/18-update I use w/undereye cream, blends better :)

Great for shiny lashes after shadow fallout, with no mascara "raccoon" eyes. Great for subtle "office" eyes. Beautiful shiny, sculpted and tamed eyebrows. I use one (both ends) for lashes and another for brows because i dont want to make a mistake. I buy tons at a time, because i use daily in the office. I luv this product! Plus does not irritate. GREAT! Just $1. Not alot of product though.
Too flimsy, its cheap but useless. A waste of $
Will last forever so price is wellworth it. I have olive skin tone so its great for highlighting areas. I apply to the entire eye focusing on the browbone. Its a great base for coloring lids. With well defined eyebrows it looks flawless after blending My go to highlighter! Love love love!

Expensive, poor packaging, small quantity and virtually invisible on my olive (jlo) skin tone. Im just to busy to return but If this ever happens to me again im taking it back to the store. Ive loved benefit for yrs but this is a total rip off, shame on them.
OMG! HG! Great product! Makes ur shadow color pop. Use only a lilttle bit and build up. Great on loose shadow but be careful w/ur pots dont rub directly in one spot just swirl evenly on the surface because it will have a cement effect. When applying, place color in exact location cause blending is a bit of a challange. Once it dries which is almost instantly you will have to scrape it which is not flaterring or fun so place accordingly and blend quickly. :) luv it! Update: i find myself not using this bc its so hard to blend. Changing lippies
It does its job but a bit harsh after the first swipe. Not enuff balm, great smell and taste. Be gentle n proceed slowly
