This brush is beautiful! I have had mine now for years and with the proper care, it has held up beautifully!! Super soft, great for blending, contouring and just straight applying shadows. This brush is quite expensive, but if you take care of it, it'll last forever. Worth every penny!

I have to say, I have never in my life used a liner so amazing! I can't believe it took me so long to find this product. I have been so extremely happy with every product I have tried by Geisha Ink. Incredibly easy to create a thin natural line or overlap in order to make a thicker liquid liner line. This liner stays true the entire day, and never budges. Like the mascara, it washes off easily.
My go-to lip balm. Moisturizes my lips, and stays on. I have been using this for years now. I always try other balms, but always find myself coming back to this one. Love the tingling minty sensation!
Good coverage, but looks really cakey and heavy on. Clogged my pores causing me to break out. Will not buy again.
Not a fan. This color was georg in the pan, but not on my lids. Texture is not smooth, almost gritty. Does not blend nicely and becomes muddy. Too bad.

What a waste of money! I had high hopes for this liner after reading the reviews. The liner was hard to apply and took multiple layers to create a solid black line. part way through the day, the liner smeared under my eye...disappointing and embarrasing. I ended up throwing it in the garbage. Should have known better. I will stick to my HG liner Geisha Ink. This liner is amazing! Lasts all day like it claims.
Hate this mascara. Did not hold a curl, clumpy and thick. Waste of money, will not repurchase! Geisha Ink still my HG....not sure why I keep wasting money? Curiosity?

What is the big deal with this mascara? The formula is thick and goopey. It took forever to dry, and after waiting what felt like several several minutes, I still had transfer onto my lids. I spent more time waiting for it to dry and cleaning the mascara off my lids than actually applying it. After application, my lashes were left hard, stiff and clumped. Biggest waste of money. I will stick with my HG mascara Geisha Ink.
A great liner to smudge under the eyes. I find when worn on top, it will sometimes smudge or move. Gel liner is a great consistency, therefore very easy to create a soft line. I find if it isn't used quick enough it will start to dry out.
One word- Yuck! I gave into the Bare Minerals hype only to be extremely disappointed:(. I have dry skin and this foundation made my skin drier. Throughout the day I smelled a heavy metallic smell from the foundation which made me sick. Didn't have a color to match my actual skintone, so the MUA helping me matched me to the closest shade. Big mistake! The color changed on my face throughout the day looking horrible. I do not recommend this product.
This is a beautiful color gloss! Adds just enough color to my lips, but not too much. Great for an every day, year round lip color. Love the consistency of MAC glosses. The fine gold shimmer helps refract light and make my lips really pop! Love this gloss!!

This is my #1 fave bath product. The smell is to DIE for! It is a little pricey, but worth every penny! After trying it once, over a year ago, I was hooked. This scrub smells like a mocha! I have found the ground coffee has improved my skin. It is ultra moisturizing and the amazing smell lingers all day.
Mascara -Unlisted Brand - Geisha Ink- Ultra Volume Mascara

I was so eager to try this after reading all of the reviews! The price was very comparable to other high end mascaras out there. I finally got my hands on one and here is my review: The Brush was big and full, easily coating every lash! The formula was unlike any I have tried. Super volumizing and amazing length! Each lash was coated with no clumping what-so-ever. I am so impressed. Lasted a 14 hour work day without budging. At the end of the day, the mascara easily washed off with soap and water. Next I am going to try the liner and pressed mineral, since the reviews have been equally as positive. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
My favorite red nail polish! I love how Butter London nail polish are 3 free. The lid's shape is a little annoying, but the formula is excellent! Nail polish smell only lingers until dry.

I was really excited to try this product after seeing in a magazine. It was nothing special. The pot really annoyed me because it was hard to use your finger to get product with long finger nails. I then started using a spatula. It created a nice base, however did not wear as well as I though it would. Too bad...
