YES YES YES YES I HAVE FOUND MY HG FOUNDATION!!!!!!! lovelovelovelove this foundation, it gives such an airbrushed porcelain finish with the least amount of product and it lasts ALL DAY i went to sephora to purchase it after see itsjudytime's review on it and asked the SA at sephora to match me. she matched me with the wrong shade so i had to return it :/ but i wore the foundation on my face all day and it was so beautiful and i looked so youthful (even though im 16 and thats not a problem) and i have bad acne scarring which was covered up BEAUTIFULLY i have dry skin which causes problems but with this foundation not at all definitely repurchasing when i get the chance but getting a better shade match ps my wrong shade was deep 66......way too dark and orange for me, i think im within the medium range not deep

The shadows are beautiful !!! Especially the shimmering ones. I wish they incorporated more matte tones though (luckily i have another VS Palette that has BOTH Shimmer and Matte Shades!) The lipglosses are chunky and melt easily. I hate how they're right next to the shadows, because shadows falls in them and WOOP ruined lipglosses. Not happy with packaging that much. I love the range in blushes! But the bronzer is a bit too light for me to use as contour, it matches close to my skin. Color pay off wasnt great, i found myself packing on shadows to get them to become noticeable. either way, this is a fun kit for if you want a simple sexy look, not really meant for dramatic looks which is what i use eyeshadow for a majority of the time! I would repurchase because i do love the shadows for a light elegant look.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE LINERS!! I personally don't use them for eyebrows because my eyebrows are pretty dark already and are naturally arched. I usually wear gel liners or liquid when i do wear eyeliner but i love pencil when i want a soft look. AND THIS STUFF IS THE BOMB. It's so soft, so pigmented, no smudging and its SUPER CHEAP ! These liners are so so so so soft that i can tightline my eyes when this pencil is just sharpened. But, it's definitely a strong eyeliner, it doesnt really crumble or break easily. I've had this liner for a year and i have a over 1/4 of it left. DEFINITE repurchase and HG Drugstore Pencil Liner

I LOVE THE CONSISTENCY OF THESE LINERS <3 I bought it in 3 colors, charcoal, brown and black (i picked up charcoal thinking it would be black, woops!). Some gel liners have such a hard texture that its difficult to line my eyes with it. Its so soft and stays on forever! I have minimal smudging with this. However, I'm not in love with the colors. The black was pretty pigmented but i felt like it wasnt dark enough for me. Same with the brown and charcoal. Also, during the colder seasons, i noticed the product does get a little harder so i have to warm it up in my microwave a little or light a match and warm the bottle with the flame. I HATE THE BRUSH THIS LINER COMES WITH. I can never get a thin, consistent line and then the product tends to stick to the brush, making it hard to clean. I would buy this again, maybe start mixing colors together for a darker finish.

i don't know. this foundation gives me such mixed feelings. When my skin is great, this foundation gives me great light - medium coverage, lovely glow and is moisturizing. on the days my skin is horrible (ex. blotchiness, hormonal acne, EXTREME dry skin) it just isnt that great. the foundation tends to cake on my problem areas and emphasize :( also, sometimes it gives my skin a grayish looking tint? idk i've tried so many foundations and always come back to this one. sigh.
I'll admit, the hype surrounding this foundation and the reviews on here duped me. For me, this was my first Revlon foundation. I have dry, flky acne prone skin and need a foundation that wouldn't emphasize flakes or break me out while looking super natural. First let me start off with the packaging. It's really nice and sanitary and i LOVED the packaging. The foundation? Not so much. I bought the foundation in Caramel and Carmel shades match my skin tone 99.7% of the time. When i put this on, it looked darker and orangey than when i tested it in Rite Aid. After applying with my foundation brush and ligthly powdering (i dont like powder much it makes my skin look cakey and dark) i went to school. in my FIRST CLASS i noticed the foundation was rubbing off on my fingertips and on to my notes SOO embarrassing, especially when the girl next to me asked what that "brown thing" was on my paper. When i got home, i looked in the mirror with horror. My face was SUPER cakey and my dry spots were emphasized ALL OVER to make matters worse, it oxided so my face had an orangey look to it AND THE GLITTER EMPHASIZED MY PORES. Ugh. I tossed this out after trying a million ways to apply it, with a stippling brush, fingers, sponges, mixed with moisturizer, with primer with corrector etc. I wasted $15 USD on this foundation. the only positives were the packaging
