This is probably the softest stuff I have ever felt. It feels so amazing, and you can barely feel it on your face. It glides on so easily, and leaves your skin sooo smooth. It keeps my makeup on only a bit longer, so I would give it a 3 overall, but it makes my foundation look great upon application so I gave it a 4. And I'll say it again, it is so darn soft!
Two words: Clump city. I don't understand how so many people love this, it just looks horrible every time I use it, which to be honest has been probably twice since I can't stand it. Yes, it's very cheap, but you get what you pay for. Eh, you get less than what you pay for.

I'm surprised I haven't gone out and repurchased this yet. I love this! I used it every day for like a month but then I dropped it and the powder broke and got all over the place, but I loved it so much I saved all I could and turned it into a loose powder and put it in a different container. Since im running out of it now i will definitely pick more up next time I'm at the store!

3 bucks for a big container of this stuff? I'd pay five times that! This powder is THE best I've ever tried, it's so extremely soft and I get so many compliments when I wear it. It's great for oily skin or any skin type! Oh my goodness I literally could not love it any more.
Pros- tons of volume, no clumping AT ALL, even lengthens quite a bit, inexpensive Cons- some people might hate the smell, but I actually like it I don't have anything bad to say about this. had a coupon for it the other say so i picked it up, and i love love love it!
Best makeup brush I've ever bought! It's extremely soft and worth way more than six bucks! I love this so much and use it every stinkin day :)

This stuff has good coverage, it's fast to apply, and it stays on for a while, but it's not great for oily skin. It's shiny to begin with and it doesn't really control oil, which I should've expected. It also runs out pretty quick so it's expensive for the little product you get. But, I can see this really working well for people with normal skin!
This is great. Oil control is good, Staying power is pretty good, and doesn't oxidize throughout the day! I probably will repurchase if I don't find anything better because its great! I used to use liquid foundation but when I started using this my friends and family said my skin looked the same! Powder foundation that covers like a liquid? Amazing!
I've had sooo many experiences where I'll buy a product and get my hopes up, but it won't do anything for me that it promised. I was looking for a lengthening mascara and I picked this up NOT expecting it to change the ACTUAL length of my lashes. Let me say, I was blown away when after about a month of using this I noticed a difference. I was confused at first because it seemed like my top lashes were thicker, and my bottom ones were much longer, and I had no idea why. Then I finally realized it had been a month since I started using this, and I was shocked! A product that works! It's clumpy the first few times you use it, but it gives insane length and I've actually gotten a ton of compliments! I love this!

This is great! Not too orange, natural looking, and matte! It's also so inexpensive, and I will repurchase.

I've had my first bottle for over 6 months and i use a full pump twice a day and I'm just now starting to run out. this moisturizer just makes my skin feel so healthy. When i use it my skin feels so soft :) not greasy at all, and it's not great at controlling oil, I can tell it helps a little bit, but I have dry patches and this moisturizes those wonderfully! And other moisturizers will say they control oil but they just make your face more greasy, this does not make you look anything of the sort! I will use this until it's discontinued!
Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Maybelline Coverstick Corrector Concealer

I got this in green since my under eye circles are mostly red, and I have a lot of redness all over my face that i wanted to try this on. This concealer feels really drying, and it's hard to blend, and under your eyes you end up pulling and tugging because patting it in isn't really an option. It doesn't cover very well and it wears off pretty fast. I didn't really like this at all.
This keeps my eyeshadow on MUCH longer, without it my eyeshadow literally lasts about two hours since I have really oily eyelids, and it creases really bad. When I use this my eyeshadow stays on more like 6 hours, an it doesn't crease the slightest bit. For only a dollar for a working product, heck yeah I'd repurchase!
When they say "the tan that you control", theyre right. If tou want a darker tan, you apply a thicker layer. If you want it light, only do it every few days. A lot of people complain about the smell, but I actually like it... I like this self tanner because it looks so natural, and if I dont have a chance to apply it for a few days, it doesn't look streaky, it just fades a little bit (and evenly!) I use this about every other night after I get out of the shower. As with any self tanner, youve just got to be careful around elbows, knees, and the area that transitions from the leg to the foot. Overall this is pretty amazing stuff !
This is definitely a staple in my makeup routine. I have extreme redness in between my eyebrows, under my nose, on my chin, and on small portions of my cheeks. I mainly use the green, but I also use the yellow and blue a lot, but rarely the pink. No, this won't completely mask any imperfections, but it covers up well what shows through my foundation. It lasts me a few months (it would probably last most people longer, i just use a lot) and the price is so cheap! Can't beat only $3 for a product that really does its job!
