I really wanted to love this product since the eye primer potion is amazing. Unfortunately I found it dried out the lips and caused a cakey creased mess in the fine lines and corners. The only use I found for this product is when doing a very precise red lip, and you are worried about it bleeding or staining. Just make sure to moisturize the lips well before applying.

Brilliant! Looks like a fine, flat brush which draws on light, feathery strokes to fill in, or to really shape your brows! I was impressed how natural looking it goes on, and you can build it up to a thicker look/darker color. It stays put all day, which was impressive. I ordered both shades (light hair and dark hair). Light hair was a perfect match for my blonde locks. I definitely will be ordering more to out in my MU Kit.

I really wanted to love this face cream after reading the reviews (and since it's one of Oprah's fave products). Unfortunately it really wasn't for me. I hated the smell, and found it did not absorb into my skin, rather sitting on top like a filmy layer. I gave it a few tries and had the same results. Too bad.

Terrible. This is probably one of the worst primers I have come across. Initial touch, it feels silky smooth...quite impressive. However, as soon as it is applied onto the skin under makeup, it creates an oily under surface causing the makeup to slide around the face. The only people I can see this product working for is extremely dry skin. However, for a primer for anyone who has any amount of oil in their skin, this is not the product for you.

I really love this face lotion! SPF 15, no scent! Gives just enough moisture without being greasy. Absorbs into the skin well!
UD makes such amazing shadows! They are beautiful, pigmented and blend with the greatest of ease. Sin is the perfect champagne color, for highlighting! Love this color!
Beautiful color! This works on many skintones and is beautiful over lipstick! Took one lippie off because it is very sticky. However, I do find the stikyness of this gloss helps it last longer. Just a pain during outdoor photoshoots when the wind is blowing the model's hair around;).
LOVE this hairspray! Holds well while still looking naturally beautiful! Smells great! I love how you can comb out this hairspray and reapply, with keeping your hair feeling super soft and natural. Washes out easily and does not leave a ton of build up in your hair. Kind of pricey for a hairspray, but totally worth it!!
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - Geisha Ink - Liquid Eyeliner in Brown

FAB! I love Geisha Ink's black LL, however, a lot of my clients are scared of black eyeliner. This is a beautiful rich dark brown. Formula goes on smoothly and is super opaque. Liner can be used for a natural look, or thickened for more drama. What I love about this liner, is you can apply this thinly in the AM, and reapply a thicker in the PM. OR, reapply the black OVER the brown in the PM for that evening look...Voila!!!
Such a beautiful green. Blends well and has wonderful pigment.
Love this product to use on photoshoots to create a shiny greased up look! Also a good all round product for a quick moisturizer or lip balm. While I wouldn't choose to use it for those reasons, it is def very multi putpose!
Awesome, shape and size! Perfect for contouring, or getting right under the eyes, or near the eye sockets. Soft beautiful hairs! Take care of this baby well, and she'll last forever!
My ultimate fave crease shadow! I go through this color faster then any others. Perfect for many different skin tones! Goes with almost every shade of shadow. Beautifully milled, with a smooth application. I would die if they ever discontinued.

I am really glad I bought this brush to go with the Geisha Ink Loose Mineral Foundation. Being a MA I have tons of fun tools. But I always love to try the brushes from my HG brands to recommend to clients. This was a really nice Kabuki. The synthetic hairs are really soft, and perfect density for buffing the foundation onto the face. Flawless application, even distribution, no streaking. I think this brush could be really multi purpose!

Super impressed with this product. I have a lot of brides that have reactions to chemicals found in foundations. I have been searching for the perfect formula for loose mineral, and I think this is it! Wore it (Katsumi #5) all day during a photo shoot, and was so impressed that I didn't need a touch up all day. My T-Zone gets quite oily, and this barley broke a shine. The formula goes on seamless natural and smooth. It wears all day and has beautiful coverage. A little goes a long way!
