LOVE! Unlike a lot of other people, I find that the brush is effective in applying the foundation smoothly. If you're expecting flawless application with just 2 brush strokes, than you may be disappointed. The foundation blends beautifully into my skin, giving a very natural finish. The color I got matched my skin perfectly. My only complaint is the way the brush is attached to the tube makes it very difficult to clean. I tried and had to bend the bristles aside in attempt to remove foundation that was deep within the bush near the dispensing area. But overall, I am very happy with this product. And did I mention I got this on sale at CVS for a little over 3.50? WOOT

i like this liner. the brush it comes with works well enough. much better than spending 20 some dollars on a brush. The color payoff is alright. two layers is usually enough. its staying power is what makes is amazing. this thing doesn't crease, run, smear...nothing! it stays put all day! i would definitely buy this liner again.
this eyeliner claims to be smudge proof and water proof. both claims are not entirely true but not entirely false. i've noticed throughout the day that some of the liner from my upper lash line close to the inner corner and tear duct would transfer to my lower lash line, but the rest would stay put unless you squeeze your eye shut. then you would end up with a dark shadow of liner under your eye. when applied to the waterline, its staying power is average. again, i find on myself the liner making a shadow under my eye near the inner 1/3 of my eye. the rest stays put depending on how watery my eye gets throughout the day (sleepy = yawning = water eyes). this product overall is ok. i use this eyeliner when i don't have enough time to use cream liner.
it really separates your lashes and somewhat lengthens. the con about this produc is the brush. it is flimsy so you have to be extra careful when applying. the packaging is very princess-y, too frilly for my taste but its bareable as packaging is not the main focus. overall a great mascara.

i love this lipstick! it looks very natural on the lips with a subtle shimmer. the color payoff is excellent. it applies smoothly and effortlessly. there is a slight scent to it though but its not strong.
this mascara really makes your lashes big and fat, just like the tube. be sure to wipe the tip of the brush off on the opening of the tube as there tends to be a glob of product on it when you take the cap/brush out of the tube. the mascara also has a weird smell. it doesn't smell bad, just weird. but that really isn't a problem as the smell doesn't linger. if you are the type of person that likes to comb your lashes after you apply this mascara, do it fast. once it dries, combing will only result it "fuzzy" looking lashes and flakes of dried mascara on your face.

this liner is amazing. it conditions your lashes though i'm uncertain about its lash growing claims. it does take longer to dry, but once it does, it stays put! the color isn't as true as you see it. use a very tiny amount and you get a subtle grey. use a bit more and you get a very defined black line that is very dark and will take twice as long to dry. overall i love this liner!
you have to work with this lipstick. if you put too much on it will go into the creases of your lips and look cakey. i find it wears best by applying a THIN layer of it onto lips after applying a little chapstick or vasaline. use your finger to smooth out the edges so there isn't a build up at the edge of your lips. also, if it starts to get into the creases of the lips, just gentally rub your lips together to smooth it out.
