I got this as a gift from my sister who swears by it and although it's a nice shimmery product, i'm not crazy about it. I wanted it for creasing... it creases. So no, I won't buy it again.
I've been using this for 6 months along with the rest of the regime and I love it. My skin is clear thanks to this and I am never going back. For first time users, don't be discouraged with the initial flakiness.. It's bound to happen! Soon you will have clear skin!
I LOVE acne.org products. Absolutely LOVE. Before these products, I struggled with cystic acne. You know under the skin bumps that leave dark marks afterward and you never even see anything surface? Those are the worst, they're painful and unless you are willing to go to a derm everytime to get cortizone injections, they're hard to deal with. After this product, I get the occasional blackhead but never a full breakout! I was extremely religious about following the directions, and the first month was awful with the peeling and getting use to the "treatment" part... But as soon as you get through it, you see RESULTS.. and not proactiv commercial results. This a real person with real acne issues telling you that my skin is 99.9% clear. Now I only use 1 pump of the cleanser, 2 is more than enough at first, and I recommend you follow it to a T, but once your skin gets used to it, you can back off the cleanser a little. I'm never going back, I've been using it for 6 months and am I very happy customer. Thanks Dan!
Eh... I'm not crazy about the applicator tip, i prefer thin brushes so that I can determine the thickness. If I am having a good day then I can manage a thin line with this. If I'm having a "everything looks like crap" day then it is most likely going to be a thick cat eye.
It definitely does the job and is one dollar. if you're in a pinch, then it'll do the trick. But beware, it is streaky/watery and cracks when it dries. Shake it a lot to get the most out of the pigmenation.

I love this blush, it came in a palette I got from Youngblood including some eyeshadows. It's a very soft color, so you have to use a lot for it to show which is why it's not THE best, but i still love it. i love the golden undertones, it's almost peachy bronze. I will definitely get it again.

I think that if I had the color that matched my skin perfectly, I would be extremely happy. So next time, I will get it matched right on. For now though, the color is slightly off so I have to do an extremely good job of blending so that I don't go outside and notice a bunch of lines. i don't have any issues with flash on cameras. It's pretty close to flawless and leaves you dewy looking. I prefer matte since I have somewhat oily skin, but whatever.

This product does very little to reduce shine long term. Yeah its nice and sets my foundation or concealer, but I kind of just go through the motions since i paid so much for it.
This only dirt cheap because my sister gave it to me. Otherwise, it's about a 3 on the scale. I love this concealer, it works extremely well and I don't have to use foundation with it. I use it on some spots and then blend away with a blush brush. My only gripes are: 1. sometimes the compact becomes a bit grainy. 2. sometimes the concealer leaves streaks. I will be buying it again!
I got a small sample in an eyebrow kit and even though the eyebrow palette and brush won me over, this primer was only successful in making my face greasy and grainy feeling. The texture on my fingers alone, felt like I was about to slather butter on.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

love this! on my 3rd jar and very rarely use anything else unless i'm going for shiny black cat eyes. obviously, you have to use it with a specific mac brush(couldn't tell you what number as mine as so old that the number has been rubbed off, but its still going strong!) for it to go on perfectly.
As an ex dream matte mousse foundation user, I was looking for a foundation that was lighter, less oily and gave a glow. I saw the commercial for this foundation and went out and bought it. The color matched perfectly and goes on so smooth, it feels like a very light mist. It doesn't feel cakey. My only problem with it is that the package looks so big but when opened, it disappoints! There is NOT enough product, so you don't get a good bang for your buck. Hey Maybelline: put more product in the container and you've got yourself a guaranteed return customer again and again!
