I would give this product 5 stars if it wasn't so darn expensive. I use the color 5 and I have very dark brown hair. I never use this product alone, I apply it over brow powder to realistically fill in sparse areas and match my left eyebrow shape to my right. It just takes a few little flicks followed by some spoolie combing to bring my brows from uneven with obvious brow powder to perfectly …Read more

I really like this product, mostly for the blush. I am fair/light with cool undertones and this is the only peach colored blush I have found that looks good on me. I adore the scent. I know some people don't like it, but I love the idea of smelling peachy while looking peachy. The highlight is pretty, but it's too dark on me when I don't have a tan (I'm extremely pale …Read more

I am 33 and don't have "mature skin" but based off of the reviews here I bought a jar of this for $14 at CVS. When I first put it on at night, the fine lines on my forehead vanish, which I found pretty incredible! However, when I wake up in the morning my face is very, very puffy. The fine lines on my forehead are visible again by morning but somewhat improved. The puffiness is …Read more

This mascara has two pros: it's very black, and it's inexpensive, aside from that it's pretty much garbage. The length it adds is minimal, it will not hold a curl, and it both smudges AND flakes at the same time. I've probably worn this mascara 20 times or so and every time I end up with stick-straight lashes and black smudges and flakes around my eyes. Will not repurchase.

This eye cream is VERY moisturizing and HG for me, despite the price. I am convinced that it has prevented the progression of my under eye wrinkles for the last 4 years. When I did stop using it (due to the fact that it's quite expensive) and tried other eye creams I noticed my wrinkles multiplying and becoming deeper over one year of not using this product. I wish I had switched back …Read more

This is my HG everyday mascara and has been for years. I've repurchased at least 6 times. I wear it to work every day and also when I only have a few minutes to do my makeup. The best thing about this mascara is that you can apply it FAST, as in less than one minute. There's no having to build up layers or tweak fiber lengths and there's absolutely no need to comb your lashes with …Read more

This stuff is amazing. I got a sample bottle of it from Sephora and then went on to buy a full sized one. I do not use it on my face, as my skin is already combo/oily but it works MIRACLES on my dry, frizzy, wavy hair. 5 drops of oil plus some scrunching to the ends of my hair leaves my hair with perfect beachy waves after air drying. Brought my hair routine time of 30 - 40 minutes down to about …Read more

I love this Kabuki brush. If you haven't tried any of Too Faced's "Teddy Bear Hair" brushes, you must try them! They are super soft and just heavenly!
I love that this brush is retractable, also the outside case is absolutely beautiful. Several different versions of the case have been released so some are prettier than others. Great for overall blending, application of …

As someone else has already said, best matte pallette on the market right now. Minus one star for the overall quality of the eyeshadows, but honestly for the price the quality is pretty good. Consistency is a bit chalky, and I would prefer if the shadows were a bit more pigmented, but again with a price of $20 USD for 12 eyeshadows it's hard to complain. I love wearing bright colors and …Read more

I am on my 4th or 5th bottle of this stuff and I have to say, I love it! Not only does it extend the wear of my nail polish, it also makes a perfectly smooth surface for application of nail polish, masking ridges and other uneven areas. It also works great sealing in glitter that has a tendency to "bleed."
It does tend to get a bit thick once you've gotten about halfway …
