I'm really loving this foundation right now. It goes on feeling like a BB cream, but gives very nice coverage. I have some minor blemishes and unevenness, and it covers it. It also covers my dark circles, I do not have to use much concealer. My only complaint is that the staying power is not great. But all around a very nice foundation.

I really love this palette. I feel like this would be pretty on anyone no matter what age, from a girl getting her first makeup to a grandma! Also great for any occassion because you can make it really light and natural for school or work, and add more of the darker shade in the crease and add some more dramatic eyeliner and falsies for a night out. This is just such a great simple palette that is good for anything. I highly reccomend it for Anyone! And it's so inexpensive and easy to get your hands on. LOVE IT!

DO NOT GET THIS FOUNDATION IF YOU: a) Have skin with any kind of oil problem b) If you are looking for a lot of coverage c) If you want a matte face If you are any of the above, don't get this because you will be disappointed. But I really like how this works for me. It is very light coverage, almost like a BB cream. I love the way it makes my skin look dewy and airbrushed, it's so pretty! I really am glad I got this. It also makes my skin feel very smooth. :)
I think that is a very high improvement from the original Great Lash. The brush kind of reminds me of Telescopic Explosion, which can be really bad if not applied correctly, but with patience and a steady hand can give beautiful results. Same with this. I think if you don't apply this right, yes it will be terrible. But I found that this held a curl, it lengthened, an did not clump. I think this is a high improvement from the original Great Lash and has a place in the mascara world. It is not garbage like the other one.
I have not had any problems with this mascara. It separated and lengthened nicely, and I definitely cried for a good while with this on and I did not have any flaking or smudging. I don't think that this is bad and anything is wrong with this, but I think there are better and cheaper drugstore mascaras out there that are more worth it than spending $10 on this. But if you get it in a free gift like I did, I think it will work nicely for you.
I think this is a very beautiful product. It is a golden pink color that is great for daytime wear. The formulation is a perfect marriage between being sticky enough to stay on your lips, and still being creamy and moisturizing. The applicator makes it easy to apply on the lips. It smells delicious, the price is really good for this good of quality lipgloss, and the packaging has a cute bow on it. I really love this product and deff will be repurchasing.
This product did not perform well or give me the desired look for my lashes. A lot of drugstore mascaras are 100 X better than this. The brush did not make my lashes stand out, and also this flaked like crazy, and after I took a nap this was completely running down my face. This is so not worth the price.
This is such a beautiful product. The color is gorgeous and perfect for an every day lid color. The shadow is highly pigmented, also very silky and very very similar in quality to a higher end shadow. And it's $2. This is a no brainer to pick up this color to add in your collection. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this product.
This is a very black product with a big brush that gets a lot of formula on your lashes. It looks good once you apply it, but I found the second I would blink it would flake like crazy and I'd have black spots all over my eyes, plus this made my eyes sting. This is not a good product, please don't waste your money! And is it just me, or is the packaging a rip off of LashBlast? hmmmm.
I've tried virtually all drugstore mascaras from every brand, and this is the one that I keep coming back to. This volumizes so well, it lengthens, it does not clump, and the staying power is great even in the non-waterproof formula. My eyelashes look the best when I use this mascara. The price is good and it is very easy to find. I think after trying basically every mascara out there, this is my HG. I love it, and I would die if they discontinued this.

This was the first mascara I remember using in 8th grade. I remember globbing it on and it being a nasty mess and clumping. I recently reluctantly repurchased, and was pleasantly surprised. If you give your lashes a good curl before this and apply with a very steady hand, it can give a good decent amount of length as well as some volume. It does not give a dramatic effect, but I can tell that I am wearing mascara when I have this on, which is not the same for others. This has the best staying power of any waterproof mascara I've tried, I've worn this to band camp and pool parties and this sucker will not budge until you come in there with the makeup remover. I do not think this is the best drugstore mascara out there or deserves all of the hype, and I would not reccomend this for someone with really short lashes, but I think this works pretty well. and for the staying power and the price it is good. I like this for long summer days.

I wasn't crazy about the crazy colors of the other Baby Lips, but I really like this one! It is the perfect barely there lip product, it's bascially like your own lips just improved. This would be perfect paired with dramatic eye makeup because it is not a lot at all, but it gives a pretty look to your lips. It smells like push pops, and it is really smooth and also very moisturizing, the price is good, and I like the color of the packaging. So yeah. Very good.
This is the lazy girl's best friend when it comes to makeup. This is my favorite color out of the bunch. I'm tan, and this is really wearable and not dark at all on me. The staying power is really great, especially with a powder shadow ontop. Most of the time I just swipe this on my lid with some mascara and I'm ready for the day. The packaging is nice and they give you a very generous amount in the pan. This is a really great product that I highly reccomend.
I really adore this lipstick. This color is bright, but I feel like it is wearable. It really gives me a lot more brightness to my face which is really nice. The formulation is very nice. The color is very pigmented, and it smells delicious-like a creamsicle. It is matte and also very long-wearing. I also really like the packaging. I know the Kate is for Kate Moss, but I like to pretend it's Kate Middleton and I imagine that I'm a royal when I wear this (which is kinda silly, but it gets me through the day, you know?). I highly reccomend it. I really love this color and this line of lipsticks. I wore this with a slinky black and white leopard dress, long lucious curls, a bare eye with just heavy mascara and this lip and people were complimenting me nonstop and saying it was really sexy.

I was really excited to try these. I have not tried it as a base because I'm yet to find a color that this would go with, I'm just judging this on using it alone. I really think that it works well. It does not live up to 24-hr claim, but I think that the staying power is decent alone. It probably will work really well as a base. The color is pretty. It comes off as a really smoky neutral on my eyes, and it's not too much for daytime. I really want to try more of these.
