I was surprised by this palette, the quality is great and the price is good. The shadows are nicely pigmented and the colour selection is perfect for neutral everyday looks. The mattes blend really well and the shimmers are beautiful. Minimal fallout. The shadows last all day over primer. The only thing I don't really like is the packaging, the hinge on the lid is a bit odd.

I really like this foundation, it feels very light and applies so smoothly. Blends easily and is quite buildable. The coverage is light to medium, it looks very natural but the finish is still matte. Great for combination or oily skin. It has a faint scent but doesn't irritate my skin.

I have this in 1 - Nu. I love how sleek the packaging is. This has 3 mattes and 7 shimmers. Very nice, blendable shadows that feel so soft and silky. They stay on all day with primer. I really enjoy the looks I've created with this, they look elegant and beautiful. It is pricey but nevertheless, a lovely palette.

A nice eyeshadow primer, very affordable. It has a soft texture when applied but dries quite fast. You only need a tiny amount. I find that this doesn't feel quite as "dry" as the Wet n wild Photofocus one (I would recommend that one for v oily lids). This lasts quite well, for at least 8+ hours.

This is a very nice foundation. Very natural, medium coverage but it is buildable. This doesn't have a scent like some other high end foundations. Doesn't irritate my skin or cause breakouts. *Edit. I noticed that sometimes this seems to cling to dry patches.

This concealer is okay, not the best but not the absolute worst either. The coverage is medium, not as full coverage as I expected. Seems to crease under my eyes pretty fast even when I set it. This lasts quite well on non-oily areas, but on my nose this doesn't seem to last very long, maybe 5+ hours (w/ powder). Has quite a strong, chemical smell. Very affordable but wouldn't …Read more

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work for me. I break out every time I use it. The finish is quite nice, very natural and sheer, light coverage. The fragrance is quite strong at first but once you get used to it, it doesn't bother much.

I really like this brow mascara. It tints my brows just the right amount, looks very natural. Keeps brows in place, lasts all day. I have the shade "brunette" and it is a great neutral brown for me. The size of the brush is okay, could be slightly smaller but it's not too big. Very easy to use. Will repurchase.

This made my face itchy and I got red patches when using this. I don't have very sensitive skin so I have no idea why that happened. I like face mists where the mist is more fine, the pump in this one didn't really mist evenly. It left my skin feeling a bit sticky if I used more than two pumps and I didn't like the scent.
However this is affordable and might be nice for …

This primer dries fast so it needs to be blended well quickly. I set this with eyeshadow or setting powder after applying.
I feel like it might be a bit drying and it might not work well with dry lids. With this primer less is more, you only need a tiny bit.
I have quite oily lids, this makes my eyeshadow last all day. Very affordable.
