I've seen a lot of negative reviews on this product, but I have to say I don't think it's so bad. PROS: -The green and the yellow color work really well and they work really well together! I use them both daily! -The packaging is nice and fairly compact, which is good for me. -The product is creamy and really blends well CONS: -None of the concealer colors were light enough to match my (very) fair skin tone. The lightest one is okay if I mix it with the yellow. -Aside from the concealer just not matching my skin, it doesn't do much for me in actually concealing anything, which is disappointing considering their glamoflauge concealer is heaven sent. -The brush that comes with it sucks (but what else is new). I didn't expect for the brush to be any good because whenever products come with applicators they usually aren't very good, so no surprise. I said I would buy this product again, but I'm no the fence. We'll see how I like it when I hit pan.
Absolutely in love!! Cannot get enough of this product! I wear it on my nails everyday in the spring and summer. It's basically a nude color so it doesn't draw too much attention to your nails at places like work where bright colors might not be as acceptable, but it's still noticeable when people are looking. Also, it's really easy to make a little more noticeable! Just add a nice glitter topcoat (my favorite is the silver glitter by ALDO, but the gold looks pretty too) and you're good to go!!
Use this product everyday. It really does work great and it isn't too greasy (though I still always wash my face after using them, obviously). It takes all my makeup off really well, expect for mascara, but, honestly, no makeup remover takes off all my mascara!! I just use a scrublet to get the left over mascara off! And mascara is the least of your worries! It's not great for your eyelashes, but it's not the same as having leftover foundation on your skin which could break you out. Recommended!
Just to start with the packaging: I use this as a foundation actually, so the amount that comes out with the pump top isn't much of a problem for me, but there's no control over how much comes out, so if you only want a little bit of product you're gonna have some trouble! Also, the bottle is SOO small!! For 17 dollars I wish you could get something a little bit bigger. Especially for someone like myself who uses this as a foundation, it's frustrating. Lets just say they know me well at the MAC counter. Besides those two things, this product is great! It covers well, especially if you take the time to build it up. It really is wonderful!

Great primer!! If your eye area is a bit oily you might have a problem, but since I don't have that problem this product is great!! And it lasts you a lifetime if you don't use too much at once. You honestly only need to dunk it once to get enough on both eyes. Highly recommended!!

LOVE this mascara! I'm on my third one because I think it's so great and I hardly ever rebuy products since I always like to try new ones. After two coats of this I really do look like I could be wearing fake eyelashes. It's amazing. BUY THIS PRODUCT NOW!!

I would never ever buy this product again. Literally the only way this could do anything for you is if you just like the idea of wearing a foundation, but you don't need it to do anything for you. I have acne covered skin, but I don't worry about things being full coverage, so I figured this would be fine. Unfortunately, it literally DISAPPEARED when I put it on my skin. You couldn't even tell it was there. And the worst part is is that it still felt heavy, even though you couldn't even see it. I could almost feel it clogging up my pores. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone ever!
