SO GOOD! I was weary about buying this because I didn't really think all the shades would be able to completely match any color...I don't know if I got lucky or what but "auburn" matches my color PERFECTLY. It was just *slightly* faded looking but you can only tell in some lighting. I have dyed my hair numerous shades of red since I was like 13 and it always fades to an orangey brown. I've tried dying it back to brown but it doesn't work and my dull brown roots just stand out lol. The applicator made it very easy to apply, I thought it was gimmicky at first but it was actually really cool haha. I didn't use it on aaall my roots so idk if it would be enough for that, but I used it on the roots surrounding my head and on my usual part/ middle part/ hair pulled back/ and then just did random sections until I figured I had done enough. I was kinda afraid it would be rllyyyy red and not match my outgrowth at all. But it didn't :D I dunno about other hair colors but buy this if you have dyed your hair red and don't want to keep dying all your hair but wish to hide the demarcation line. :D
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Megashield Lip Color SPF 15

Pros: creamy, glides on nicely, looks good, has SPF Cons: Fades unevenly (you know, the lip ring effect) and seems to dry my lips out like crazy. I wore "Within These Adobe Walls" to work yesterday and craved lip balm, and this morning my lips were very very dry.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

So good! The mint flavor is perfect and it has a light cooling effect which I love. So far my favorite, only a few problems: It doesn't have SPF, and the only one that does -- Lemon Drop -- is a bit greasy. And, with the weird round shape, I don't usually wind up using these a lot, because they don't fit well in pockets and at night I use Jack Black (cuz eos is awesome but doesn't stay on as well overnight.) Also I usually don't carry around a purse, just my wallet and phone in my back pockets. So even though I have every flavor except the strawberry sorbet, passion fruit and tangerine, they will probably just sit on my nightstand forever. XD
This can be a great, or horrible, mascara experience, depending on your needs. If you are patient and apply it correctly, you can get great volume and length. This mascara flakes pretty badly and it can get clumpy. DON'T RUB YOUR EYES with this on!! Blackest Black is reaaally black. If you just happen to be a makeup artist who is patient enough to apply coat after coat and only need it to last a photoshoot, and need something inexpensive enough to replace frequently, Great Lash is an option. Otherwise you will probably be disappointed.
Toners -Neutrogena - Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner

I have rosacea, so I wanted a toner that didn't upset my rosacea while cleaning excess oil and product missed from cleansing. Despite claiming to reduce redness, it not only enflamed my rosacea but it gave my whole face a rash which has never happened before. Gave it to a friend, will not repurchase.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I love this simply because of the option of neutral shades! I have fair neutral skin so most foundations are: -too orange -too pink -too dark Like Rimmel for instance has nice foundation but they never have a shade light enough for me!! :( With this foundation I was able to find my perfect shade! And it blends out easily too. Has a matte finish, I like to mix in a little moisturizer because I like a dewy finish. Packaging quality went down because no pump. Every foundation should have a pump. >:(
When I first bought this mascara I was the kind of person who liked INSTANT volume and was too impatient to apply coat after coat so I hated this mascara and just gave it to a friend. But after my lash accelerator and voluminous dried out I decided to try it out again because I wanted volume but also like how lash accelerator decreased lash fallout (which is one of full n soft's claims.) I've found the best way to use this product is to keep the coats coming! It's very buildable you will never see clumps but the downside is it applies little product at a time so keep at it. If you do it right you will get pretty decent volume. And lashes really are soft!
This mascara really packs color on haha! It's great for 1-2 coat extreme volume, if you're into that. Which I am because I'm too impatient to apply coat after coat after coat XD Isn't the best at separating so lashes can look a little clumpy if you don't do it right. I'm not sure I like the brush shape I never really did like curved brushes. It doesn't hinder me as much as most curved brushes though so it's ok. Doesn't flake or smudge, holds curl ok. I would not buy again because drugstore mascaras can give me the same or better effect for way cheaper.
Really great mascara. Beast at length, and while I don't think I noticed any lash growth (maybe a little bit if that) it DEFINITELY decreased lash fallout when removing mascara which alone makes me <3 it. I only have a few issues: -The cool rainbow lettering scrapes off easily if you keep it in your purse. The neon cap is also prone to damage. Mine currently looks like I shoved it in a blender -Flakes a little bit
So far my favorite mascara! The color is a super dark, rich black. You only need about 2 coats to achieve crazy volume and some length too. No smudging or flaking. Doesn't hold curl the greatest, but I personally find that only waterproof mascaras really hold curl well for me lol. I've tried the waterproof version of this too which fixes the curl hold issue. Lashed are a little hard not a lot though definitely not crusty.
