I received this concealer as a gift so I'm not exactly sure how much it is. This however, is one of my favourite concealers if used correctly. If just blended with a normal concealer brush, i find that you do see it enhance lines rather than 'smooth' them. However, if you dab it on the undereyes, slightly smooth out with the fingers or use a fluffly brush to blend it it gives an natural concealed look.

I got this product for free as one of those rewards when I was in America. The packaging is pretty plain but it doesnt really matter what it looks like. It glides on really smoothly, and gives that face a natural glow. However, as I have combination/oily skin within a few hours, my face begin to look really oil and feel sticky. The lasting power of it is also not that great, lasting about 5 hours. Overall, if you have normal/dry skin it would be great, but if you have oily skin, stay away.
Step 1 for me is a good look for someone who wants a very natural look. I use it when i want to look like my lashes are naturally long and separated eg. at school, at work etc Step 2 for me, i find the brush is too clumpy and even though i take the effort to try to get the clumps off the brush, sometimes they can cling my eyelashes together so it looks like i have very spidery lashes which is not a look i like. However if you have the time and patience to use eyelash combs to remove the clumps afterwards, this mascara does what it says and volumizes.
I find that this foundation has too much shimmer in it for my liking. If you were looking for something to wear on an everyday basis, i would say avoid this because the glitter particles are very noticable. The foundations feels nice on your skin but it does feel like you have put something on and if you are not careful when trying on clothes it does rub off. Overall though, I dont think i would repurchase it. It makes my face look too cakey and doesn't last as long as i would like. Also i bought it in Australia for almost $35
The first time i tried this mascara i thought it was really great. It does create a very full looking lash but not amazingly 'doll' like. I didn't lengthen my lashes greatly but it did make them look thicker which i love. Over time however, it does dry out quickly and i found after a month or so when i applied it, it did make my lashes clumpy but that can be fixed so it isn't a huge deal. I bought this when i was in the States for around $50 but in Australia i know that it is ridiculously overpriced so i dont think i'd buy it here.
This products only works well on people who already have pretty good skin. Its good a weird consistency but when on the skin feels quite nice has does even out the skin tone and make it look more luminous If you have oily skin i'd say stay away because it can make you look like a grease ball after a few hours.
