I have only positive things to say about this palette, since i received it i have used it every single day in a different way. I just love it, the quality is superb and the liners really do stay on quite well. LOVE IT. a definite must have, even for a less avid makeup collector/user. really, just a great purchase.

worn it twice, so far i love it. the finish is a gorgeous, healthy look. it is very dewy and moisturizing. with a light dusting of powder over it, it takes some of the dew away (bc i dont like looking too dewy) but doesnt make me look dry. the texture is light and extremely smooth. the coverage is buildable, and for me it is enough not to have to wear concealer under. my skin is not blemished though, mostly some redness and some tiny bumps. also, this has been my best color match of any company. I was normally NC30 in MAC yet when i tried this side by side with this makeup, the MAC one looks so completely off!! this one just completely blends and disappears into my skin like no other fdn has ever done. simply amazing.
i bought this in the lip saver roll 3 pack, with quince and jasmine. this is my 2nd favorite of the 3. i LOVE quince, and i do not like jasmine at all. this one is very sheer and natural and makes me just look healthy. I like it, but not as much as quince which just looks perfect with my skin tone.
I bought this in the Lip Saver Roll, with Quince, Pomegranate, and this one. of all 3, this is my least favorite. I'm NC30 and have very pink pigmented lips, so this pales them and makes me look like a corpse. but, what i did is put it on my nightstand, and i only wear it at night, to keep my lips moisturized. i wouldnt wear it in the day it looks awful. maybe on very light, pale women it looks good, it probably adds a little color, but on me it takes my color away. it's a good balm, and it adds a good moisture level to my lips.
I bought this in a Lip Saver Roll with 3 balms, the Quince, Pomegranate, and Jasmine. this one if my favorite of the 3, it looks beaufitul, very natural as though it's my lips only better. it really is very moisturizing and lasts for a few hrs at a time. it makes my naturally very pink lips look rosy and healthy. i quite like this balm. for reference i'm NC30, and like I said, my lips are very pigmented on their own.
I bought this in 98 Grenada. it is a coral-y pink but very sheer and wearable. it is gorgeous. it complements my NC30 skin beautifully and is one of my all time favorite lipsticks. it is very moisturizing and i wear it without a liner, my lips dont require it. it will probably last longer with liner, but i prefer to wear it a bit more informally.
i bought this at costco for $14.99 for 2 so my friend got one and i got the other. I am planning on going back and stocking up on this. i am super picky with mascara b/c my lashes suck so bad. i need something for not only length, but volume, and definition. i need it all!! and this mascara surprised and impressed me, it really did everything i wanted it to do. it is slightly wet and does not clump at all. i like the large brush,, i have really large eyes so it doesnt bother me as it might some who have smaller eyes. i usually apply like 3 coats and my lashes look so full and like a normal person's! i like it quite a bit and plan to keep using it. it has beaten out: DiorShow, Texas lash, Lash Injection, lash blast, voluminous, all the maybelline ones, all the ones in the Lash kit from sephora with all their bestsellers, in short, i have tried MANY many mascaras and so far this one i'm happiest with. try costco! they might have it and if they do, super bargain! update: i have bought it again. i accidentallly also bought the regular Major Lash and it was really bad, that brush did nothing to keep it from clumping. this big giant brush keeps every little lash separate, no clumps at all.

I just bought this recently and have only worn it 2 days so far. so these are just my initial impressions, i may change the rating on it after i try it about a week. I am dry skinned, and this product really does feel moisturizing. however, my nose was shiny after about 3 hrs, shiny and oily looking. YUCK. even my cheapie L'Oreal creme to powder doesnt do that!! the coverage is extremely sheer. that is another reason i'm not liking it that much so far. i need more of a medium coverage and this is just so sheer. other ppl have commented about how it feels more like a TM and i agree. but that's good and bad in ways, bc it just feels moisture-y yet doesnt cover very well. it does last quite a long time, yet i feel it makes my pores more noticeable. I've been applying it with a dual fibre brush but i think tomorrow i'll apply with the sponge, as the SA said it would apply more product that way. i'm hoping it will cover a little more than with the brush. *EDIT* I tried the stippling brush, the coverage was still too sheer, the finish too oily. it isnt good for my skin it just doesnt feel good. and i do get little acne also. I am getting rid of this.
i have only used it once but i'm not impressed. i have short sparse lashes. this kind of helped the volume aspect of it, but i mean, just barely. nothing really noticeable. the brush felt cheap and the formula felt a little clumpy and flaky. i didnt notice any odors though. i wont buy it again. nothing horrible to say about it, but nothing good either.
i bought the Stila package at costco which came with a quad of e/s, this mascara, a liquid liner, and a brush. i thought this was the same as Major Major Lash but it is not. this brush is much smaller and clumps very badly. it is really hard to apply this mascara without clumping the lashes together, it looks so ugly. after i wore it a few weeks i realized my mistake and threw it away bc it was really bad. i love the Major Major Lash, that one works SOO much better.
my lashes suck. short, sparse and barely visible. this mascara doesnt clump or flake, and the formula is not very dry or wet. it is a good mascara and it does lengthen in a very natural way. it does not define, only lengthens. if i had a little darker of a lash this would be good enough. i will recommend this to friends with full lashes who want more lenght. it does what it promises to do! length only, no definition, and obviously no volume. cute packaging, price is fair, and it does lengthen substantially. I wont buy it again but only cause my lashes suck, as i said before.
I only wouldnt buy this again because it didnt do anything special for my lashes. however, i am very hard to please or impress when it comes to my lashes (i'm sure most of us are). i suffer from very short sparse lashes and they just werent helped by this mascara. everyone i know swears by it but i'm sure their lashes are better than mine so the mascara works better for them. it wasnt bad, just wasnt great. like Stila Major Lash a LLOOOOOTT better. price=great. brush= good, no clumps formula= slightly thick, black is very black packaging= recognizable and sturdy
Crème -L'Oreal - True Match Super Blendable Compact Makeup

I love this product. I have had many fdns over the yrs. I normally use Fresh fdn and went matte with an MUFE one recently but I consistently go back to this as an everyday fdn. It's super fast and easy to apply. I use the sponge it works best and provides med coverage. My face looks flawless once I have it on. My nose gets a bit shiny at my lunch time but I blot with an oil absorbing sheet and it's totally fine. *EDIT* i have repurchased this about 3 more times and have now changed my opinion. yes it does have a nice smooth finish but there are a few things that can be improved. it doesnt last my work day, and it accentuates my pores. I like other fdns over this one, but in a pinch, if I'm broke, i'd wear this.
Tried it on my very short sparse lashes. Didn't like it, it had very little effect on my lashes. Applied like 4 coats and still nothing.
I first apply a coat or two of lash blast. But to add length I add 2 coats of this. I so far like it, it is smooth and not flaky. Holds a curl, no burning or itching. Love the price! Works well when used w/ another mascara. It's not enough applied alone, at least not for me.
