I'm pretty disappointed with this. It does thin your hair a LOT, which can be good or bad, depending on your viewpoint. I don't mind, because I had a good amount of hair to begin with. My hair isn't even naturally curly- just wavy. I don't hate my wavy hair or anything like that, I just wanted to try something different. My hair straightened really easily immediately after, but that was about it. I waited the recommended 48 hours before washing my hair, and it's still not straight. It's straightER, I'll give it that, but not enough to qualify as straight. The only reason I didn't give it a 1/5 is because my hair seems softer now. But not enough to compensate for the amount of time and hair loss it took.
I think these are just okay. Not amazing, not terrible. I bought Peach Parfait and Cupcake. I really like the color of Peach Parfait, because it's just a little darker than my natural lip color with some shine. The sparkle isn't too noticeable, and you don't feel it on your lips. Cupcake is a light, cool pink. Being yellow-toned, it looks a little odd on me if I apply it too heavily. But it could be pretty on someone else. The reason I gave these an overall 3/5 is because they're not particularly moisturizing, and because if you try to build up the color, you end up with little clumps on your lips. The colors are pretty though, so I'll probably go back to look for more.

Originally I wanted the peach color, but it was sold out and this one was 50% off, so I got it anyway. And I'm so glad I did! It's a perfect peach/pink cross; a little warm without being orange. I see some gold shimmer in the container, but I don't notice it on my cheeks. I just apply it with my fingers and blend it out, and that works well enough. The pigmentation is great. It does fade a little throughout the day, but not terribly. I'm very picky about my blushes, and I will definitely be going back for more of this!
I love this stuff! I'm not a fan of blush in general; it usually just makes me look like I have a rash. But this is lovely! If you like to apply your makeup quickly and easily, this is for you. I just swipe some on with the applicator and pat it out with my fingers. It gives you the prettiest color- not too pink or too orange, just a perfect reddish flush, like you've been standing in the cold. The price is painful, but this is the only blush I like, so I'm willing to spend the money.

Overall I think this is just ok. It's just my nose that get's super shiny, and this helps reduce the shine, but I find that I still have to reapply every 2 hours or so. I'll keep using it until I find something better, but I'm not amazed.

Love this eyeliner! I'm always looking for that perfect cat-eye, but I'm not too good with liquid eyeliners. This is the first gel eyeliner I've ever used, and it was so easy to get it perfect right away! The product is nice and black, didn't fade throughout the day, didn't flake/crack/etc. It comes with a little brush, which is better than I expected. Most brushes included with products are garbage; but I actually like to use this. The stuff is impossible to remove without makeup remove, but other than that this product is everything I hoped it'd be!
This is my favorite drugstore lipgloss! I have Healthy Peach, and it's the perfect peachy-pink, not too orange and not too pink. It has little shimmers in it but it doesn't feel gritty or look overly sparkley. I hate lipglosses that are nearly clear and this is NOT one of them; It has so much pigmentation! I use it all the time- as long as they keep making it I will keep buying it!
This mascara is really great; it makes my eyelashes so long that I get compliments on them! I would buy it again, but I think it's been discontinued... That's what the website says at least.
Disappointing. It gives good volume, but it really did nothing for me in the length department. I use it sometimes on top of a good lengthening mascara, and it looks really great then, but I don't want to go through the hassle of applying two different mascara's every morning. I'm not a fan of the brush either; the bristles are too short and too sparse for my liking. I feel like I can't get enough product on, and the formula felt sort of thick. It wasn't horrible, but it didn't live up to the hype and I will not repurchase.

I really want to like this eyeshadow, but it's not stunning me. I like the lightest shade for the inner corner, but the other two don't show up that well. Not because of the pigmentation- the darker colors are just really close to my natural skin tone. I'm dissapointed- I really wanted to love this.
I am in LOVE with this! I've tried other Covergirl mascaras, and I don't think they live up to the hype, but this mascara is wonderful! It gives my lashes length, volume, AND definition! The brush is quite nice; it has regular bristles, not like the Covergirl Lashblast, and it really grabs all your lashes and separates them while coating each one. I haven't experienced any flaking or smudging so far. The grievance that I could possibly have is that I bought the brown color, and it's darker than I expected, but that's not enough to make me give it a lower rating!
