I was looking for a nice neutral that wasn't boring so classic camel seemed like a good choice. In the bottle it's an interesting color with pretty sparkles. On my nails it is gross. Weird color with my skintone (NC20-ish) and the sparkles seem sort of chunky and rough when the nail polish dries. Do not like.
Great product for my skin. I am close to an NC20 in the winter and 02 is a perfect match for my skintone. First SA makeup I've used that doesnt make my face look dry/flakey/patchy. Been using this product for a week and my skin already looks so much better. Most other foundations make me break out by the end of the day except some mineral foundations. Great coverage, average price, great squeeze bottle. A little goes a long way. Dries to a matte finish and stays put without powder.

I love this thing. I have hooded eyelids and an interesting eye shape so it's hard for me to find a curler that is comfortable and works. Great find for $1

Finally bit the bullet and bought this. Love the product but I go through it so fast I wish it was cheaper. I think I will buy the silica from Coastal Scents next time and use my MUFE container....my clients won't know the difference :)
I have the purple one and love it. On my 3rd sponge. Great for stippling foundation for an airbrushed look and smaller end is great for blending everything.
Cheap and effective. I always have to use about 2 but at this price I can afford to mow through them. Had trouble with packaging not letting me take 1 at a time when I first opened it, but now that it is half empty that is no longer a problem.

Have had this forever and rarely use it - I hate the tingling sensation, but I guess that is common in all lip plumpers. Nice flavor and color, a bit sticky.

LOVE IT. Own the pink sugar one and use it every day. Gives a nice hint of color and shimmer with a very soothing mint taste.

Decent product. Definitely helps control oilies and even out my skin at an affordable price. Only had it a month or so and already hit pan. I like to use it for spot-coverage throughout the day since I purchased MUFE HD silica and use that to set my makeup instead.

LOVE the product but color selection is awful. I'm NC25 and too dark for "Fair" (the warm light color) and too pale for "Tan" (the warm medium color). I settled on Tan because it is a tinted moisturizer and I'd rather have it give me a little glow and color than be too pale. If I blend it enough it makes me look fresh and tan. Good coverage for a TM, a little goes a long way. Not greasy or runny, great consistency. Doesn't clog my pores. Has a "sunscreen" smell but I don't mind.
I have 09 Sweet Chocolate Browns and 10 Pretty In Pink. Love them both! A little tricky to apply at first and can be itchy on the eyelid but payoff is good when you "pat" it on the area. Great selection of glitters with these palettes! Mine will last a while because I don't use glitter very much. But when I do I'm glad I have these.
Good price, love the sifter. I have the semi-matte version but think I will try the matte version when I have to reorder. Color was a little off for me but the color selection on their site is AMAZING if not a little overwhelming. I'll probably order the sampler option next time to be sure I get the perfect match. Ok coverage in this version but a great alternative to BE.
Good coverage,but can get cakey and settle into fine lines so BLEND BLEND BLEND. I've had my pot for over a year and I still haven't hit pan. A little goes a long way!

Quality product for the price. Nice color range and mix of cool and warm tones available. Can be a little flakey if applied too heavily or blended incorrectly. I found patting instead of rubbing helps it blend better.
Meh. Didn't do much for me except create a tad bit smoother surface for my foundation. Trying to remember to use it up because it was a pretty penny and I don't want to waste something I spent over $20 on.
