Beautiful color, but terrible product. I thought this would be comparable to NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils, but it's nowhere close. The NYX pencils are more waxy, so they last longer and powder eyeshadow sticks to them perfectly, so they are a great base. I was hoping to use this product the same way, but it's the worst makeup product I have ever purchased hands down. Even with a good eyeshadow primer it couldn't be helped. Eyeshadow on top didn't stick at all.
Love it. Quite simply it does what I need, and I've been spending $14 for the MAC eyebrow pencil. I can buy 3 of these for that price. Also, I like the fact that it comes in a lot of colors.
Best perfume ever! Love florally- citrus smell that just makes me feel beautiful. The bottle could be prettier to reflect the feminine smell, but I don't really care too much about that. It's quality packaging..

The product smells nice and applies well with it's thin formula, but after awhile it makes my skin feel sticky. I wouldn't repurchase this.
The absolute worst! It gives me spider-looking eyelashes after one coat. I have nice eyelashes I think, and this just makes them look disgusting. If this was the only mascara in the world, I would just go without. Trust me, it's that bad! (At least for me)
Best eyebrow pencil ever. This is another product I've been using forever and I can't see ever using anything else. It give me natural-looking eyebrows that aren't too dark. It's a bit expensive for an eyebrow pencil, in my opinion, but it's worth every penny!
This is my HG foundation. I've used Mac Pro Long Wear, Studio Fix, Bare Minerals, and Laura Mercier. Best $10 I've ever spent. The color match for me is excellent, the coverage is medium/full but is buildable, and there is no nasty odor. It lasts all day and doesn't oxidize to a disgusting shade. It sets quickly though, so you do need to work quickly when applying it. The only negative with this is that there is no pump so it takes a little practice to not make a mess or waste product, but at $10 the learning curve isn't expensive. I'm also acne prone and I don't experience breakouts or anything. The only product that is comparable to me in the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, and at $42 you would save $32 and have a very similar coverage and gorgeous look. FYI: I'm 410 Cappuccino
Blush -MAC - Sheertone Shimmer Blush - Ambering Rose

A MUA recommended this to me in college and this was the first blush that I ever purchased. The shade is great on my complexion. I'm NC 50 for reference. Now that I know more about makeup, I'm not really a fan of the shimmer in it, but it's not terrible. The color pay off is excellent. You can use this for a slight flush of color or for a more made-up overdone blush look. I do think this is a great starter blush, but I probably would not repurchase. I've had this blush for at least 6 or 7 years and I still haven't hit pan. It's still in great condition too, it's been years, I've traveled with it, and besides there being a little blush dust, it's in great condition.
