I was pretty disappointed in this mascara. While it does make my lashes look long and full, I find that after a few hours it has fallout. It's also a giant pain to take off which makes no sense since it has fallout. I find myself scrubbing with my eye make up remover to get it all off. I think for the price you can get more for your money.

I was a huge fan of C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve, and I love lavender so when I saw this I knew I had to give it a try. It's the most universal product. I use this as a lip balm, on really dry skin patches, on my cuticles, to soothe bug bites. I can't live without this stuff.It's a must have in my purse.
I have rosacea and extremely sensitive skin, and I dislike having anything heavy on my face. As such, finding a foundation that would give me a decent amount of coverage that still felt light was a tall order. Because my skin is so easily irritated I had to eliminate several brands of foundations, and was ready to give up on my hunt until a representative at Sephora recommended this! The texture is smooth, and in conjunction with primer is very easy to apply and blend. It feels so light and like I am wearing nothing, yet the coverage is great. I set this with Setting FX and I get a flawless finish.
This palette definitely lives up to the hype. It has a great combination of shimmers and mattes and the colour selection is great for creating tons of looks.The pigmentation is all of the shadows is also fantastic. In terms of cost, I think you are definitely getting the bang for your buck with 12 colours, a deluxe primer potion sample, and a brush. My only complaint would have to be that the packaging isn't very nice. The velvet encasing attracts all kinds of dirt and lint and you can't really clean it. However I am willing to overlook that minor detail for the pros make it worth it.
