Love this liner for the waterline. I tried the trial version of the urban decay 24/7 and while that one was ok for the waterline, it smudges pretty quickly for me (within 3-5 hours). The technakhol lasted a little longer (around 6 hours) and smudges less. I really liked that it was creamy and didn't tug at all and is a very deep black.
This is a very good sheer fall color with hints of shimmer in it. I personally liked that the color was very light, that it's not too strong, because I was looking for something that had a very light tinge of color and was natural with my skin tone (NC40). This was the perfect lipstick color. I also purchased innocence beware and sometimes i'll mix the two colors to deepen the creamy nude with a Sinister and add a bit of shimmer. Personally I love the lipstick, I just wish the packaging was matte instead of shiny plastic which looks kinda cheap to me, but I can live with that.

Perfect nude lipstick with the perfect amount of pink with peachy undertones. Very nice when applied sheer rather than built up. It is a little drying on my lips so I always put a light lip balm under and it works out fine.
I really wish they went with a matte packaging like they're regular stuff. I feel like their shiny packaging makes it looks like a toy. Despite that, they're actual product is amazing. I absolutely love this beauty powder esp as a blush. Just two to three swipes and I look like I just came back from a short jog. It's a very pretty color and I imagine it'll look great on any skin tone.

I think I got a bad brush. In comparison to everyone else's glowing reviews, I got a brush that was not only had frayed hairs it was scratchy to use. I have very sensitive eyelids and when I saw these on ebay for extremely cheap (in comparison to the original price) I snagged two of them. I'm using both and one of them is ok, not too scratchy, not as many runaway hairs but the other one is quite painful to use. I thought I was being overly sensitive so I tried it out on a friend but she complained as well. I ended up throwing it out. That's the risk about buying online though isn't it? You can't check out the quality yourself before purchasing.
I bought a few different flavors/colors. I bought the minty/medicated green, La France Pear also in a light green, and Cream Pineapple in yellow. There's no actual color on the lip (these are balms not glosses). I LOVE them. The pear and the pineapple are simply delicious. They smell great, they feel great and I want to re-purchase. My boyfriend likes these as well, they're not waxy at all, rather they literally feel like "water in lip". The green medicated/minty one i'm not so happy with just because it wasn't a minty that I like but I'm still halfway through the bottle. It feels amazing and the initial tingle disappears after a little bit, leaving it scentless/colorless/flavorless. All in all, i really like these and I'm def repurchasing and probably going to try out the Sakura glitter and the Raspberry flavor. I do have to warn, it's not a super thick ultra moisturizing balm that you would use to condition overnight. These are more for light moisture throughout the day.
I'M ORANGE WITH GLITTER! I saw this and picked it up decided to try it out. I didn't get any streaks (after blending till parts of my skin was RED) but my palms and my legs and the undersides of my arms (pretty much all the areas that was much lighter and needed a boost of tan) are OOMPA LOOMPA ORANGE. To top it off, the stuff has glitter so not only am I an oompa loompa, I'm a tween oompa loompa. The scent is strong and the formula is extremely sticky. I dried off for 20 minutes before putting my clothes back on and my shirt was stuck to my back the second I put it on. EUGH. Never buying this AGAIN!
