Slighly disappointed with this item since it completely washed me out. I purchased this on the boards recommendations but found it too pink/peach on me. While, I cant wear this alone, wearing it on top of lipstick seems to be ok. Hence my only reason for not to purchasing this item is the lack of complementary skintone. Otherwise, the packaging is great and the price $5.82 can't be beat.
An excellent purchase for $2.99. Shows up as a goldish olive green on me (south asian skin tone). Excellent staying power and satisfactory pigment. I would have preferred even greater shimmer, but i think the average person would find it adequate. Excellent cost-benefit ratio!

Pros: I bought this at the Cosmetic Company outlet, so it was only $24 versus its regular $35. It gives my cheeks a really nice luminance, giving me a translucent/flawless look. While a cheesy benefit, I would add that it looks cool in the case. J Cons: I am kind of disappointed with the lack of pigment. The bronze seemed too dark for my south Asian skin tone, so I was hoping this would do the trick. While the packaging is sleek like most BB products, much of the powder from the brick scatters easily. All in the all, if I found a better highlighter I would not rebuy this again.
Yipeee!! Love this!! This is my 2nd super lustrous, first being Glossy Rose. This is the perfect glossy spring on my highly pigmented lips. Great staying power. However, aside from the regular glossy shine, i didn't notice any extra shimmer impact. Bought this for $6 at Wal-mart
This is my HG liquid liner. Have been using it for at least 5 years, everytime I run out, always repurchase. I have this in two shades - black and black brown. The latter is a dark brown which gives a very subtle lined effect on my southasian skin. This liner can be used to provide very very thin line or alternatively can be thickly also. Highly recommended.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous lipgloss in Glossy Rose [DISCONTINUED]

So getting on super lustous lipgloss bandwagon lateee..i am definitely on board! So impressed! Great shine and staying power. While not crazy about how Glossy Rose looks on my lips (im south asian and on the dark side), i would definitely re-purchase another shade.
I LOVE THIS EYELINER!! It was my first glitter pencil and now my HG! Ive had this for about 2 months now and love it for a special night time or even day time look. I have noticed no glitter flaking off onto my skin. I wear contacts and much to my surprise this didn't cause any irritation whatsoever. Highly recommended!
I am fairly happy with this product. Since its retractable, I am not left with damage to my handbag. I do think its priced at $9 on the higher end and there are probably better lip brushes out there for a cheaper price, but I have no complaints. Ive had this brush for about 6 months and have noticed no bristles shedding, etc.
This is a great shadow for the price. It shows up bronzish/pink on my tan olive skin (from the subcontinent). I wear it daily to work without any eyeshadow base and have never noticed any creasing or fading. For $3.50, it was a good buy and provides an ample amount of shadow. I do wish it had a little more shimmer, but thats just a personal choice.
While I wouldn't buy this product again, its not that it was awful or anything. I just wasn't that impressed. It didn't leave my eyelashes soft and definitely not full. Ive used better drugstore mascaras.

I got this free from a Vic. secret gift cert., but definitely would purchase! Really great consistency and doesn't dry out lips. Just like its name, it looks bronze on my olive skin tone. I do prefer my lip glosses to be in a tube, but I can live with this pot package.
LOVE IT! Absolutely love it! Great shimmery blush on my tan olive skin! This is my HG for going out at nite! Great price for an excellent item!! Another win by NARS!
This is my HG daytime blush! I love it! I'm from the subcontinent area, and on the darker side and this shows up as a great reddish color. I’m not too thrilled with the packaging - roller ball application - but it doesn't kill the product. I would advise anyone using this product to apply and blend immediately, since it sets really quickly. Highly recommended!
