The first coat is sheer and the next is streaky... Would be great over a french manicure, but I didn't buy it for that purpose.
I loooove this trio! It got really pretty neutral colors, which is really frosted. I usually don't like that, but this trio is just different. The texture is amazing. Smooth, extremely long-lasting and blend soooo well. The only thing that bother me, is that the light and medium shade is kind of identical. Not totally, but I wish they were more different. And the last plus is that you get a lot of eyeshadow for your money! :D
I actually find that the 'filler' is perfect in softness. Ok - maybe a little too soft, but it really isn't a problem for me. I have it in Light which is a great match for me even though I have a little darker hair. It glides on really nice, and it makes my eyebrows look amazing! I just sweep it over my eyebrows twice each, and I'm good to go. The highlighting side isn't bad either. It can be a little cakey, but if you warm it up a little with your fingers, it isn't a problem.
I like this mascara so much! It curls my lashes, but only if I don't curl them myself. It isn't like WOW curling, but there is a difference. It gives me a lot of volume and length as well. It simply makes my lashes look lush - which I love!
I really really hate this mascara. It actually flackes on me, and it gives me no length or volume. A waste of money.
It works great, but the smell is DISGUSTING. I've used it once, and will NEVER do that again... Yes, I'm sensitive to smells, but this is TOO much. I just get sick thinking of it. Will never buy this product again. Id rather make it myself then.
I like this brush! It is perfect for applying bronzer / counture... It is really really soft and not dense at all, so you pick the perfect amount of product up. It is totally worth the money!
Mascara -Maybelline - Define A Lash Volume Mascara

Hmm... A bit disappointed. I though this would be as good as the green Define a lash, but no. It is just... Nothing special. I can fell this review is pretty useless, but there is really nothing more to say. It flakes a bit, and smears under the eyes after a long day touching your eyes as little as possible. It does not lengthen and does not give volume. It just makes your lashes black with a little curl, which goes away a few hours later. Will not buy again

I have a really weird relationship to this product. It is very expensive, but I heard a lot of good things about it so I had to try it. Especially because I have really dark circles. It have a beautiful packaging! I love gold! ;) It has a little brush in the end. I thought: "Great! So much better than sponge tip applicators", well no. After having this for some time, it started to smell. Like really gross. Then I found out, that you have to clean it! I did not know this. But fine. I have not done it yet (gross, I think so too!). I think that it is really irritating, but the brush is sooo soft, so it is fine. The product itself is alright. I would not call it a miracle, like someone does. It has a really natural coverage! You can technical still see some of your dark circles, but it makes it just more natural to look at. If you put foundation over it, or a pigmented powder, then they would be totally gone! So I like it over all, but it is quite expensive, so I hope to find a dupe for this less expensive, because it isn't those money worth. But it do work!
I love this Eyebrow Kit. I have medium hair, and kind of dark eyebrows, but sometimes they does not grow evenly. It is very ugly to look at, so I bought this. I am very surprised by the quality. I have combination skin, and on my oliy places (eyebrows ofc.) it is still last a looong time, especially if you set it with the powder that also is in the kit. I usually do not do that, because the powder is really pigmented, and it makes my eyebrows too dark. But I can use each one and them together depending on what look I'm going for. I have this in medium, ind it is actually really dark! So I would say, if you do not know which one to pick between light and medium, I would go for light! I really think this product is every corner worth it, so I would def. buy this again!!

I love this concealer! I use it for redness. I think it is much better for redness than dark circles. Actually I bought it for dark circles, but it covers redness so well, that it doesn't matter. I do not fancy the packaging, but it could be worse. I'm so happy about it, and I would buy this product again!
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

I had really high hopes for this product. I was looking for a Laguna/ Orgasm dupe, and I found it... I though! The blush is waaay too glittery. I doesn't have much pigmentation in it, only glitter! I do not use that. But the bronzer is better. It have a VERY good pigmentation. Yes, it has glitter, much glitter, but when I apply is as my conture with the ELF Complexion Brush the glitter doesn't grip to my face. I big con. is that it doesn't last on me all day. I haven't used it with a primer under, so maybe I should try that...
GREAT brush. It's inexpensive and it's really good quality! I'm very expressed by the softness. It is soooo soft, and really dense. You can apply just about anything for the full face with it. I really like to use it for my powder/mineral foundation, but my favorite thing to use it with is cream blush. OMG it's fantastic! It applies it beautiful... The blush I use it for is MAC's creme blush in Blossoming. It really shows the color better, and not just all the glitter. It looks elegant, if you can say so. It's black with white writing. I'm in love with it. I would for sure by it again!
Eyeliner -Clinique - Brush-on Cream Liner Smoke Grey

This product is reasonable, but it has more cons. than pros! If I even can find a pro! It doesn't have much pigmentation. Is really annoying when you apply it, because it doesn't show up much. It's a kind of boring color for my eyes, and that may be because of its lack from pigment. I prefer the BB gel liner, because it's SO much better in many ways. I know that it is more expensive, but is really is so so much better. I really don't know the price, because I got it from a swap. I will not buy this product again. EDIT: You cannot touch your eyes then you are wearing it, 'cause it will come right off!
