I bought this mascara because I've heard so many good reviews about it. I was so excited when I finally got it, only to be disappointed by the results. First, this mascara completely took out my curl. Second, it smudges within two hours. I think it's more suitable for people with thicker lashes, but not people with thinner lashes, as it is more of a wet mascara. Will not repurchase.

What a great product! The colours swatch so buttery and smoothly. I love the little surprises this palette come with (like the definer eyeshadow on the right with the duochrome finish!). For less than five dollars, you are getting 8 generously-sized eyeshadows. Although, if you have oily lids you might want to prime your eyes first before applying this. Applicators were crap as usual, but I use …Read more

I love this lipgloss! The packaging is so cute and simple, and the price was dirt cheap (I bought mine for $2.49). The lipgloss smells nice too, like something sweet. Plus, it's none sticky, and there's an array of colours to choose from. For the price, this product cannot be beat. Great for a student's budget. Will definitely repurchase more!

I like this lipbalm. It does what it claims to do. I have the one in strawberry, and it leaves my lips looking slick and moisturized. It doesn't feel uncomfortable on lips or like it just settles on top. Plus, the SPF 15 is an added bonus! Although, I don't like how the actual lipbalm doesn't swivel all the way down because of the possibility of nicking the product. I like how …Read more

This powder was okay for me, but not what I was looking for. I was looking for a mattifying powder but I think this would work better as a finishing powder. Applies wonderfully, doesn't cling to dry patches, or clog my pores. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide any mattifying properties (keep in mind, this never claimed to do that) and oxidizes on me by midday :(. An okay product, but not …Read more

This waterproof mascara help up my curl amazingly well and gives lashes that extra "oomph" for a more "my lashes but better" look, although it can be layered for a more dramatic look. I like how this mascara layers without clumping. What i didn't like about this though, was its staying power. This mascara begins to smudge on me by midday like all the other mascaras …Read more

When I first bough this mascara, I hated it because it took the curl out of my lashes. Which was not surprising, because if it's not a waterproof mascara, my lashes will not hold the curl. But I reallllly wanted to love this mascara, so i gave it another chance. What I found out though, was that this mascara's staying power is AMAZING. Whereas all the other mascaras I've used …Read more

This is a great powder! It cost me less than 5 dollars.The packaging IS flimsy, as other reviewers have mentioned, but since I don't need to touch up when using this powder, I don't take it with me for the day. I like how the packaging is very simple and to the point-- the puffs and applicators that come with drugstore makeup are usually crap anyway. Didn't clog my pores, and kept …Read more

Great product in general. Does not apply patchy and is not chalky like I expected it to. Like others said, you can build up the pigmentation but I don't need much since I'm pretty pale. This is now a staple of my makeup routine. I'm not complaining about the packaging since I don't retouch my blush, but I don't recommend this if you're going to travel.

The product sheers out upon application and all that's left is a shimmery base. You won't get an opaque finish but it works well as a base, or a shadow on its own if you want a sheer color wash on your eyelids. Doesn't crease and stays on all day. Personally, I prefer a sheer, shimmery wash of color on my eyelids and this is the perfect product to use everyday, and I love it!
