This is a very good product. It makes my face look poreless and very very natural. It sets the foundation beautifuly, blending everything and making it last a very long time. The packaging annoys me and you get very little product which gets wasted due to all the fallout, but I guess I can let it pass for the quality I'm getting. If you have acne prone skin they say this may break you out, but it hasn't done my skin any harm, so you may want to give it a try!
I LOVE this product. It has never broken me out, which is always a surprise since my skin is very acne prone. I find this product is a must on anyone's makeup kit due to its versatility. You can use it as a primer and/or a setting spray and it workes wonderfuly! Also, if I look cakey, A spritz fix the problem. Only, if you want to use this over the mac prep and prime transparent finishing powder, it will turn your foundation ashy for some odd reason... other than that, this product is perfect!
Its good. Not amazing though, I have the same results with or without this primer. I only use it on my sister since she has very dry skin and this primer helps a bit, but other than that I don't find it all that great. Also, this broke me out badly, so if your skin is acne prone you might want to take this into consideration. The packaging is good, but after a while the cap becomes lose which I don't really know why or how... =P I think is too expensive for what you're getting, honestly.
I liked this mascara a lot. It made my lashes look huge! it has been the only mascara that has made my thin, short lashes look as though they can hit my brows. Amazing, really recomend it
I have mixed feelings with this one. At first I liked it a lot, but after trying covergirl lash blast and then coming back to this one I find it does nothing for me. It is very volumizing but it clumps your lashes and gives you an spidery look. It isn't lenghtening and very hard to remove at night.
I really like this product. It lasts a long time and looks very natural. The aplicator is a bit odd but it makes it very easy to apply the product. It is expensive, though, but you only need the smallest amount so I guess this will last me a very long time. If you have dry skin, this is the perfect highlighter since makes your skin look really dewy!

This was the first foundation I ever used. I started wearing makeup when I was 15 and this was the first choice since my mother loved it. This foundation can be deceiving. When you apply it in the morning you can actually achieve a flawless face and cover up acne and everything. Now, about an hour (2 at most) it starts oxidizing and fading. 3 hours later, you don't have any makeup on and look extremely greasy. If you have oily skin this is defenetely not your choice since you will see it disappear before your eyes in no time.
I like this blush a lot. I've never tried cream blushes before, so this was like an experiment to me. I thought that it would be very oily but it was actually very very dry so once you apply it you have to blend very fast! also, since the color is very pigmented I found less is more, or else I would have a really hard time blending it. However it looks very natural and gives my skin a very fresh and natural look, so I recomend it!
I love this concealer! is the best one I've tried so far. It never fades, and lasts a very long time. It also covers like nothing else. It can look very natural, but you have to apply it lightly or else it WILL look cakey. If you need something to cover up acne or any blemish, this is is your guy. Also, this hasn't broken me out which is a miracle considering my skin is acne-prone and almost everything breakes me out.
Ever since I started wearing makeup I've always had the same issue: durability. Every single foundation I've ever used, only managed to last a couple of hours at most and only if I wasn't on the sun or anywere very humid. I heard a lot of good reviews on this foundation and of course I wanted to try it. Specially for going to school since I was there a good 7-10 hours a day. This foundation is very expensive, so I was reluctant at first. Its worth the price, since you only use a very small amount and it covers any blemish perfectly without the need of concealer or powder so you actually save more money. It was the firts time ever I was actually able to go out of the house without a setting powder! It lasts all day, and I mean ALL day without needing to retouch. Now, the only problem is, over time it may clog your pores. You need an AMAZING makeup remover because this thing will not budge at all! it has caused me to break out and this comes from someone who even sometimes slept with makeupon before and never had any issue with their skin. So I wouldn't suggest it as an everyday foundation unless you're not prone to breakouts, acne, or have a very good cleansing routine.
