Was hoping it would be tingly and minty feeling, but its not. It goes on smooth and kind of oily/slippery, and feels nice, but doesn't seem to work any better or worse than other lip balms. I like that its natural though.

Lovely smokey black with silver glitter. It does have a ton of glitter but if you tap or blow on your brush before applying its not quite as glittery. This blends out easily, and can be put on very sheer or heavier, using it wet will make it realllly dark too. It's a very versatile eyeshadow. It's also HUGE so will last literally forever even if you used it everyday I think.

Meh. Smells nice at first but verrry light, then turns plasticky and it is not long lasting at all. After an hour I can't smell it. This same scent in the body butter smells great though.
Smells like a clean citrus-y shampoo to me. Very long lasting and strong.
I got this in the oil rollerball. Doesn't smell like vanilla to me at all, it smells floral and woodsy and it gives me an instant headache. Will be returning.
Great translucent powder, not heavy at all, sets makeup well, smells nice, provides SPF, great non messy packaging (also cute), cheap price, non pore clogging/doesn't make me break out, mattifies a bit.

I like this for the beautyblender sponge and for other brushes. Foams up really well and cleans well, rinses clean. It does smell funny and is expensive so I probably wouldn't repurchase. There's many products out there that work just as well for a lot less. But this is decent.
I like this for heavier foundations. It blends it seamlessly with the skin and makes it not go on as thick. For lighter not as heavy products it doesn't work as well and you get almost no coverage. So it works with only some products.

Expensive but good ($36 for full size @ sephora). It's pretty pale but not too pale (sorry I don't know what shade I am). Not too 'greasy' feeling and not too dry either. Smooths on and blends well with fingers. Easy to use. Coverage is medium - covers redness and dark circles well without looking too cakey. I just use this on my cheeks, eyelids, under eyes, and sometimes on small blemishes (don't like the feel of makeup on my whole face). It doesn't seem to break me out or make breakouts worse when I apply it on top of blemishes. Yes it's expensive but good quality and will last forever especially if you don't apply to your whole face everyday. I also like that it has SPF. Packaging is great (has a pump).

I like this but I feel like the $3 ELF one works just as good. It cleans the brushes well but many other products do too. It seems to take a long time to fully rinse from the brushes even if i use just a tiny bit. Don't think it's worth the $, but I do think their daily brush cleaner spray is.
Love. HG. Makes cleaning brushes very quick and easy! I hate shampooing them and waiting for them to dry and it seems like when I shampoo, the bristles fall out. With this its so much easier, I just spritz it on a paper towel and swirl brushes around on it (I don't wear heavy makeup or cream products though so it may not work as well for that?). The brushes dry very quickly with this and smell nice, and no bristles falling out! It seems pricey but a bottle lasts forever.
Gorgeous rose-gold-peachy-pink color. Blends easily and looks great alone which is nice! It also seems to look good on nearly any eye color. A little goes a long way. Very pigmented and smooth.
Gorgeous duochrome color. Looks great over a dark base. It is exactly as the name says, a blue-ish brown. Very shimmery (not glittery). Looks funny only by itself though as its kind of red toned and can make you look tired. But can be used with many other colors to create some unique combinations. Looks neat over black cat eyeliner too! As with all mac pigments a little tiny bit goes a looong way.
Pretty black that can also be blended out to grey. Very versatile especially for smokey eye looks. Somewhat hard to use since it is so pigmented and can get everywhere and make a mess if you're not careful. But it's very pretty and sparkley. A little bit goes a LONG way, and by little bit I mean next to nothing on your brush.
Perfect neutral/all over color. Looks great by itself or with other colors. I like to use this on the lid and inner corners of eyes, and on cheekbones as a highlight. It is very sparkley but not big chunks of glitter. If you pack it on the lid it does have coverage and covers darkness/discoloration well and just really brightens up the eye area.
