I really don't understand all the bad reviews for this product. I bought this for $10.99 at the drugstore and opted for 4.0 dark brown. I usually require two boxes of hair dye anyway because my hair is at about chest length. I found that one box of hair dye was actually enough to cover my entire head, but I also used the second box to make sure the application was even. Some people were saying that the gloves are a bit too small and I agree with that point. I have really small hands (I'm 5'3" for reference) and they fit perfectly, so I can't complain there. Surprisingly, the bottle never slipped out of my hands. The smell was very pleasant, nothing to complain about. It smells like a florally shampoo and that smell lingers in your hair after the rinse as well. During and post application, my hair was all tangled up and it was impossible to comb through. However, once I rinsed out the dye, applied the conditioner that came with it and dried it, my hair was incredibly shiny and soft. Onto the color, the color was true to the box. 4.0 dark brown came out a little darker than I expected. In fact, in most lighting, my hair looks almost black. But that would be my fault on color choice since I was aiming for something a little lighter. All in all, I totally recommend this product!
I am in love with this product. At first I was worried that it would look like eye booger on me, but that's totally not the case! I have seen a lot of girls with a subtle twinkle in their eye makeup and never found a product that gave the same effect until now! This liner has just the great amount of glitter and sparkle. I like to place a little bit of this product on the bottom inner corners of my eyes and a little bit on top of my upper eye liner. It's a really pretty look with a brown neutral smoky eye because of the contrast!
I don't get all the negative reviews. This product is awesome! The trick is the wait till the lipstain is dried first because it goes on like a lip gloss. You'll know it's dried when it's matte. Once it's completely dried, it's definitely a lip stain. What I really like to do is to add the clear gloss on the center of the bottom lip for a more finished look. But if I'm going for a more natural look, I would just skip the gloss completely. If you're concerned with it being a little drying, putting on a lip balm first usually helps. However, the one thing that I don't like about this product is that it can be streaky. But it's nothing that you can't work with. I have the colors heartbreaker and birthday suit, but I'm definitely going to purchase more!

I really wanted to love this eyeliner since everyone was raving about it. I tight lined by eyes with this and I looked at a panda after 2 hours. It doesn't like to stay put and smudges! It's soft and pigmented but that means nothing if it can't stay put in my opinion. For the price, it's totally not worth it.

I got this with a Rimmel mascara, otherwise I wouldn't have even given this a try. This eye liner is AMAZING! It doesn't transfer, it doesn't smudge and it goes on easily! I mostly use it for tight lining and it stays put. It's really pigmented and soft at the same time. There isn't anything special about the packaging, just a pencil with a cap on it. At the moment, I can't think of any reason not to love this eye liner. I would definitely repurchase this when I run out!
I only bought this because it was on sale and it came with the kajal eye liner pencil. I truly wasn't expecting anything amazing. I've been using the mascara for 7 weeks now, 5-7 times a week, and I must say I noticed a dramatic difference at about 5.5 weeks. My short/medium length lashes are now a lot longer! As a mascara, it doesn't clump, doesn't fake and doesn't smudge. I have cried in this and I don't end up looking like a raccoon afterwards. You definitely have to give this mascara some time to work though, don't expect longer lashes in a week. I would say that this mascara definitely beats out some of the more expensive mascaras. If you're hesitant about this mascara, I would say to give it a try, especially if it's on sale!
