I love this product!!!! So much love in the consistency, the color, the packaging, everything (well, except for the pricetag but I can overlook that). The color is not as bright and bold as it appears on the pan when applied to the skin. I am Asian and have yellow undertones but it looks flattering on me. I wanted to branch out from my peachy blushes so I went out on the limb and bought this. I love it. It does not appear as blue toned on my skin and I love the dewy finish and the flush of color I get from it.
This product is not bad. It's "ok." I expected a lot from this because of all the positive reviews. However, when I got it, the color was a little light for my contour. I think a lot of people are being misguided about this product overall because they love the chocolate scent. I can use this for bronzing my entire face. It doesn't last very long on my face though.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Blackest Black

This is a really creamy eyeliner. It glides on very smoothly onto my lids and I love it! I have dry lids so I appreciate the more gel-like and very creamy consistency in this eyeliner. The color is really black which is always a plus. The packaging feels nice on the hand with the glass container and the sturdy lid prevents it from drying out. I have monolids and the this liner lasts pretty long on me. It does crease slightly alone but I always set it with eyeshadow so that makes it stay put. I will say though, this eyeliner does not last long on the lower lashline. For me, it did smudge after about 3 to 4 hours.

I first tried the MAC soft ocre and painterly, and that was a little too heavy on my lid. Then I tried the Urban Decay primer but that was too drying on my lids, considering that I have pretty dry lids to begin with. Then I tried the Shadow Insurance! It is great. It has great creamy consistency and glides on my lids very smoothly. It makes my shadows and eyeliner last all day long considering my monolids.
I love this. I got a good deal on it with Hautelook! It has great pigmentation and it does last a good amount of hours. A lot of people say it's matte but it does have the slightest shimmer. It is BARELY noticeable, if at all. It has a slight coral tinge to the color but the pink is more noticeable in this blush. I have a yellow complexion and it works well!
The girl in the counter told me that this would work pretty well with my dry skin. To a certain extent, it does if I moisturize my face with a heavy duty moisturizer. But overall, I don't like it because it accentuates my dry skin when applied, by emphasizing my dry patches. I think this is more for normal to oily skins. Not dry.
I heard people raving about this product so I tried it for myself but I did not find it at all as it was hyped to be. The color in the packaging is not what you get on your lid. It is a very sheer base. Maybe if you have a very fair complexion, it'll work a little better. It can always get patchy at times as well so it didn't work for me.
I love this product. It gives me really nice coverage and matches my winter skintone perfectly. I consider this to be a medium to full coverage. I have pretty dry skin and especially during the winter time, I need a hydrating concealer that doesn't travel down my face and this is the one. I use my Urban Decay setting spray after concealing and it lasts very long! I wish they had a little bit more product inside the packaging for the price that it is, but overall, a great concealer.
I have pretty dry eyes but this still smudged. Maybe I have watery eyes? Although it is called the "24/7" pencil, it does not last that long. It smudged on me after about 2 hours. I used it as a base one time for a smokey eye on my lid but it came down to my lower lash line, giving me a slight raccoon look. And when I do use this on my waterline, it travels down to my face!
