I like this product as it easy to apply with fingers or a brush and feels very light on the skin leaving a natural finish. I don't like to look or feel like I have a lot of makeup on so bb cream is a natural choice for me and this one is the first one I tried. It covers redness and red blemishes well and leaves your skin almost flawless while not cakey and still natural. It's not too greasy and doesn't leave my face lloking shiny, love it! The only downside is that the packaging is super messy and after only a couple of uses the lid is filled with cream and the tip is covered. This wastes A LOT of the product and I feel that the tube isn't all that big anyway btu aside from the packaging, great!
I purchased this product in the colour peach satin and I really love this colour! It's quite natural yet it also contains some pink undertones which I like. This product is difficult, the bouncy texture is just a gimmick and doesn't add much and the blush itself isn't very pigmented but I love the cream formulation. It's very smooth and easiest to blend with your fingers. I often use my fingers for blending as I find they provide a more natural look with some products including this one but obviously I use brushes too! Overall, the pigmentation, packaging and bouncy texture aren't great but I absolutely love the shades and the range available. The formulation is smooth and natural looking on the skin and not cakey at all. If you work at it, you can build up colour in layers so the lack of colour pay-off doesn't bother me that much. Will repurchase for sure!
I won't say this product is horrble because in my opinion its not but I will say that it generally does nothing. I find there are no adverse effects when I use this mascara but it make my lashes neither longer nor more voluminous. I stopped using this after 3 days and haven't reached for it since. Not worth the money.

So this is my first encounter with gel eyeliner and I have to say, I'm hooked! Previously I tried many brands of liquid eyeliner, mostly with felt tips, but I found it so hard to apply!! I always made the line too thick or accidentally smudged it or got it in my eye and I could never get it close to the lash line. I thought gel eyeliner would be the same but I love it! The brush provided with this product I think is very helpful. I can get right into the lash line and create a very sharp line with it. I also love the smooth consistency that glides easily but isn't too liquidy. This just makes it so much easier to apply! I also find that this product gives you a very natural look which I like because I was initially quite afraid of putting anything but a bit of subtle smudged khol pencil on my top lash line. Anything else I felt was too heavy but this is brilliant. The price was okay I suppose, I live in Singapore and I think it's a bit more expensive here. It's 20 singapore dollars but I really do love this and think it's worth what you pay although I did notice you get a rather small amount of liner compared to the packaging. Overall I would definetly recommend and repurchase this product. Even though I think it's slightly over priced it's great for begginers and for people who don't want an over-the-top look! LOVE IT!
