I heard about these etailer brusher through EnKore's video on youtube. While I was a little hesitant to buy any soley on one person's recommendation, I did end up buying some because for the price I didn't think I had anything to lose. I bought the pink duo stippling brush, the badger concealer brush and some pink eye brushes. For one the prices are fabulous! While I wouldn't say these are THE best brushes I've ever used they are darn close. The 187 dupe isn't exactly the same and while I can't use it for foundation because it's not as firm, it's great for blush. The eye brushes are wonderful imo. They blend well and are really really soft which I love. I would recommend these brushes simply because they are a great price and have a wide variety of choices to pick from. They make for great everyday brushes or as a supplement to brushes you already have. They would also make a great travel set (since it wouldn't cost as much to replace in case they got lost)
This is a pro color that is simply gorgeous. It's a satin I believe so no excessive shimmer or glitter... just beautiful color. It's not as bright as a cantaloupe irl but it's got just the right amount of an orange and melon combination. I paired it with CB96 lipstick and I know I'll be doing this combo again :)
After trying this mask out at an Arbonne party I was dying to get some. I had a hard time spending the $30+ but was lucky enough to swap for it. After using this product, my skin is baby smooth and my pores are clean. I don't know what more you could want from a product like this. You only need a little product and it's recommended to only use this 2-3 times a week so it will last quite a while

This has become my favorite glitter. It seems to go with everything and just adds a pop to whatever I pair it with. Used with MAC's water based mixing medium.. this pigment stays put. I actually fell asleep and woke up to find my eyes still looked great. It works great on top of liners as well to add a little glitz.
I love this product. I am C40-NC42 and I bought the Dark Myster Powder and it is sensational. It looks wonderful as a finishing powder over foundation or alone with a bit of concealer underneath. I find that with this I don't even have to use MAC Blot. I am normally very oily but this powder keeps me relatively matte. There is a bit of slight shimmer when you look at the pan but on the face, I don't see any. It comes in LE Couture packaging which is a great way to travel with it and it also comes with a refill. So while the $45 seems hefty at first it really isn't considering you get 2 powders in the box. I would highly recommend this product.
I found this lippie at the CCO and am so happy I did. I usually get my lippies through B2M so I wouldn't have gotten this one otherwise. It is the perfect neutral pink for my pigmented lips. I pair it with MAC Cream O Spice liner and it looks great. It doesn't wash me out and depending on what color gloss I put over it I can get many different looks from it. This may be a lippie I actually repurchase when it's done!
I Love Studio Fix. I know I may be in the minority but I have used Studio Fix for at least 2 years and it does not cause me to break out. I am super oily and still no negative skin reaction. I do use it with a separate brush...and clean it frequently. I love the fact that I can find a perfect color match with this and if used lightly.. it does not make me look cakey at all. Actually used along with MAC Fix+ it gives a very natural look.
I bought Fix+ based on suggestions on the boards. I am so glad I did. I spritz my face after moisturizer and then buff Studio Fix on top of it and gives my a nice balance of coverage with a natural look. It seems to help the Studio Fix set also. I can't wait to try it other ways!
I use this product almost everday and love the smooth my skin feels afterwards. It really gets rid of flakey skin and cleans out pores. I have not had a problem with it being too harsh on my skin.. I do have combo skin and it does not effect it negatively. I think it is a great product and I would definately purchase again.
This is a dead ringer for the more expensive MAC Oh Baby l/g. The color and texture are great and I love the scent. The packaging is adorable (a little mini bullet like MAC l/s) This color is perfect alone for a little color or on top of other lip colors to change the intensity of them. I will definately buy again once I run out!

This is the perfect red l/g for me (I am NC44 GGG). It is a warm red with sparkle and looks great on. It is sheer but has great pigment. I may have found my HG red!!!! It has great staying power too.. stayed on even after I ate a pasta dinner! I will have to stock up as this is LE.

Bought and tried this for the first time due largely to the great reviews it got on MUA. It is great! My e/s stood up to 2 soccer games in direct sunlight. It's been 10 hours since I put my makeup on and the only thing left is on my eyes! WOW.. Amazing! So glad I got this BOGOF at Ulta! Definately will get again!
Gilded Rose is a beautiful color that can be used alone for a nice sheer color or layered on your fave lipstick to add some shine and sparkle. Great staying power and the color is great. Plus you can't beat the price $3.50! Would definately buy again.
The color just didn't work for me.. looked pink but showed orangey on my lips. I did like the creaminess of the lipstick though. Just not my color. :(
