I don't have this exact kit but the kit I bought came with the stencils, the brow powder and gel, two eye shadows and an angled brush. I am IN LOVE with this product, I love the stencils, I don't follow them exactly but they help me give my brows a nice shape to follow. The brow powder is amazing and so natural looking, while the gel holds it in place all day long. I haven't tried the eye shadow yet but it look beautiful. I probably wouldn't repurchase the kit again, just the powder and the gel since I have the stencils already.
Bought this on clearance at Walgreens hoping to avoid repurchasing a new revlon colorstay whipped, since these looked like similar products I decided to pick this up to try instead. I have tried this product many different ways, with a brush, beauty blender, my fingers ; applied a little, applied a lot and no matter what it always makes my face look dry and terrible. To use it up I mix it with a lot of moisturizer to thin it out and make it go on nicer but I would not repurchase.
Oh my god, I hate this stuff so much. I have normal-dry skin and I purchased this when I was having some skin problems and looking for a full coverage foundation. This is the worst formula that I've ever used for dry skin, it clung to every dry skin particle on my face and made my face look terrible. Even adding moisturizer to the foundation and applying didn't help at all. The only reason I'm giving it a rating of a 2 is because I can see how people with very oily faces might like it, it literally sucks the moisture off your face. If you have skin on the dryer side and love revlon such as myself, try the colorstay whipped!

Love this foundation, it goes on more of a tinted moisturizer which is perfect if you have good skin for the most part. It covers any imperfections on my face and leaves it with a nice healthy glow. I bought this on sale at Walgreens and would most likely repurchase again for days that I'm feeling lazy and don't want a full face of makeup.

Love this product, seriously so cheap and works amazing. The packaging does suck but I've never had the lid come off in my makeup bag or spill anywhere; and for around $4(?!) you shouldn't expect terrific packing. I thought I would hate this since I have normal-dry skin but tried it out when I was at my sisters house and had to use her makeup for a night out. This powder did not look cakey and was more like a setting powder that held my foundation nicely. It's worth it just to try out and is ideal for those buying makeup on a budget. I've repurchased about 4 times, even if I have other powder I like to have this one in my collection as well.
