As many have stated this top coat takes FOREVER to dry. On top of that, it does not consistently protect my nails from chips--sometimes they chip just as quickly as if I wasn't wearing a top coat at all. Would not repurchase.

LOVE this cream! I have been using it for two months and it makes my skin feel noticeable softer and smoother. I am NOT a lotion/cream person at all. I pretty much never use lotions, but I use this almost daily. It smells nice and just feels so amazing on my skin.

I got this as a simple at sephora when I was looking to buy a new foundation. The first time I used it I was pretty impressed. It definitely made my skin looks much nicer and hid my acne. But the second time I tried it the product made my skin very oily. For 40 dollars I was definitely expecting better. Really glad I only got it as a sample.

I think this is pretty good blush. It's obviously not the exact same quality as a high end makeup counter blush, but it is pretty good for the price. I do wish it wasn't so shimmery. I would repurchase.

Nice product. Stays on my lips a long time after application. I'm typically a Burt's Bees devotee, but wanted to try this after hearing good things about it. Not sure I'd buy it over Burt's but it is a nice product.
Love this eyeliner. I was previously using L'Oreal's HIP cream eyeliner and thought it was nice, but it dried out on me too quickly... I've been using this for four months and it is still nice and creamy. Great color (I have black and gunmetal) and does not smudge on my eyelids at all--with or without primer. For $3, it's a fantastic eyeliner. Honestly, I'd have paid $10 for this one knowing how much I like it now.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner

I love this product. This is the first creme eyeliner I've used--always bought pencils before, which would rub against my upper eyelid and leave creases. This dries well on my skin and does not crease at all. The color is good (I use black) and stays on all day long. I'm a contact-wearer and this does not irritate my eyes. Just make sure you close the pot tightly every time so your product does not dry out. Also, I would suggest investing in an a nice eyeliner brush as the one that comes with this is not that great.
