Let's keep it simple, this product has pros and cons. Let's start on a positive note, this product is light with phenomenal coverage. Really, truly, a little bit of this product goes a long way as to covering blemishes. I was thoroughly impressed... until the day wore on. Unfortunately, this product fades as the day goes on and has a tendency to settle into lines. Now, I have oily skin and this may not be a problem for those with dry skin. Also, you could easily combat this issue by taking the product with you for reapplication throughout the day. If you're looking for a long lasting foundation, this may not be for you. However, if you can overlook the negatives, this product has incredible coverage and is easy to apply. Best of luck! :)

If you want a long lasting product to line your eyes with, this is not for you. This product has the tendency to bleed, and does not last throughout the day. If you happen to be looking for a long lasting eyeliner, I would recommend picking out a liquid gel. However, the things that I actually liked about this product, are that it is soft, glides on easily, and you vary it in intensity (still would not recommend purchasing). If you are going to try out this eyeliner, just do not tight-line your eyes, else you'll have brown smudges leaking down your face.
Alright, ladies. What more could you possibly want from a blush? This product it easy to blend, fantastic coverage and long lasting. I'm in love. I was looking for a blush that would last all day, and I found it. But here's what you need to know: to apply this correctly you need a cosmetic sponge! Dip the sponge into the makeup, smile, and dab it onto the apples of your cheeks. Wa-la! You'll get a natural glow. But here's the catch, if you want it to last all day, put a powder over it! Easy breezy beautiful! Oops, not covergirl... (I purchased "satin peach" shade 20)
I brought this on a camping trip with me, and boy, it was a mistake. I found that this product is nooooot a chap stick. My lips were cracking and were very painful by the end of my trip even with constant use of this. Now, its not the worst product if what you're looking for is a good smell and a shine on your lips. But it doesn't moisturize your lips and doesn't taste good either.
I have recently changed from a powder foundation to a liquid foundation, and have found this product was absolutely awesome. If you apply it correctly, you'll have a long lasting natural looking finish. I have found that using a cosmetic sponge works for a good overall coverage, then a small makeup brush works to cover any blemishes. If you want even less coverage, soak your cosmetic sponge underwater, then put a little foundation on. Waaa-laa, sheer coverage. This is a very versatile makeup and works very well with my oil skin. I was initially worried this product would make me break out, as I could not figure out whether it was non-comedogenic (won't clog pores) or not. However, it does not clog my pores, so I am very happy with it! Regardless of whatever your choice of foundation is, if you have acne prone skin, you ALWAYS want to make sure the product is labled non-comedogenic. :)
