Wonderful product. I will never buy an expensive brush EVER again after discovering the ELF studio brushes line. This particular brush gets the job done- it's packed with soft bristles, sturdy, and looks sleek and professional. I purchased 2- one to apply my MAC studiofix powder foundation and another for loose powder. It can also be easily used for blush and bronzer. Overall, an affordable, versatile brush that is of superior quality!
I actually had a similar experience to the poster below; I purchased this product as a result of the massive disappointment that was Maybelline The Falsies. This mascara is MUCH better. Yes, the wand is big, but I always seem to get mascara on my lids regardless of the size of the wand. This mascara leaves my lashes separated, defined, and super black. Good for daytime wear. It's not the best mascara I have ever tried, but of superior quality compared to The Falsies.

I am really liking this product. It definitely keeps the oilies at bay and keeps my makeup lasting longer. I definitely have to be careful with application though; too much powder can make my NC 42 skin look ghostly. The packaging, as many have mentioned, could be better. But the product itself is wonderful!
Blush -MAC - Sheertone Shimmer blush in Peachykeen

I'm on the fence about this product. This is the first and only MAC blush I own, and it was recommended to me by the SA. While it is a gorgeous peachy bronze color in the pan, it doesn't look right on my skin. It gives the impression that my skin is "dirty." However, I do not wear blush on a regular basis so the problem might lie with my application as opposed to the product itself.
LOVE this eyeliner. It is a dark bronze color- as someone else has mentioned, it is quite alike to mulch. I find it compliments my NC 42 skin and dark brown eyes well, and it is perfect for summer since black can look too harsh. I have been using this everyday since I purchased it; rim my eyes with this liner, couple coats of black mascara and I'm good to go. Lasts all day, and fades into a wonderful bronzy hazy color. Will definitely repurchase
I must say that after all the hype for this product, I was left extremely disappointed. The formula is very wet, so the curl is immediately taken out of my lashes. It did not add much volume or length. My eyelashes are left looking terrible- they actually look MUCH longer and separated without this product on. Would not repurchase.
On my NC 42 skin, this color is a gorgeous blend of bronze and plum. It's definitely a little on the dark side, so i tend to wear it only at night. Great lasting power and compliments my dark brown eyes well!

I love this perfume! My SO actually bought it for my birthday, he said that he spent hours in the perfume department and this was the one caught his attention the most. He goes crazy when I wear it! So do most other men...even my director at work compliments me on how good i smell everytime i wear it! Definitely a summer fragrance!

This is overall a great perfume, but it does not last long at all!
This mascara delivers what it says- it really thickens my lashes quite nicely. However, the formula is quite wet and goopy, tends to clump, dries out fast, and doesn't hold a curl. Probably wont repurchase
This mascara didn't do much for me. It didn't really lengthen, didn't volumize at all, and didn't hold a curl. I was surprised to see that it got such rave reviews, so maybe I just got a bad tube!

I love Beauty Rush lipglosses. The colors are sheer but pretty, lasts pretty long, and smells and tastes amazing. The texture is not terribly thick and sticky either
Perfection in a bottle!

The Very Sexy shampoo and conditioner is AMAZING. It is perfection in a bottle- leaves my hair soft and smooth, does not dry my hair out, and leaves my hair smelling sooooo good. Would buy again!
I got a sample of this perfume,and it smells sooooo good! So nice and warm and comforting and sexy at the same time. Good lasting power, decently priced, and the packaging is very cute!
