I have tried many primers and just wasn't completely sold and usually stopped using. This is the best that I have tried so far! I have not been a big consumer of Revlon products, but I saw a good review of this on You Tube and decided to give this a try. I have noticed that when I put this on and give it a little time to set, my skin already looks better than it did with just …Read more

I have small eyes and do not want to take up lid space for eyeliner but I do use it to emphasize my eyelashes. The very fine tip fits right in the space where the lashes come from the lid. It makes a thin line that is invisible once I put on mascara. I am not really good with liner but this pen style makes it easy The coffee shade is not harsh. It would be good at typical eyeliner prices …Read more

This is a really nice cool neutral palette. It has three round pans with neutral matte taupe/browns, 3 round pans with subtle shimmer in beige, pink, and taupe. It has a larger rectangular pan of a creamy white shade that can be used all over or as a brow highlight. The shades blend nicely and have less fallout than a lot of eyeshadows. It is in a small compact perfect for travel. I think …Read more

This primer does a good job of making eye shadow last all day. I like the doe foot applicator. I think that it compares well to Urban Decay and Two Faced eye shadow primers.

I bought this a few years ago, stopped using it, went back to it and have been using it almost daily. I don't care for full coverage so I use a damp beauty blended to apply and it gives a more natural finish. Color selection is not the best but Light works for me. I have recommended it and given the trial size to some friends and they have all liked it. Have repurchased several times and …Read more

I decided to try this based on the hype. I am not sure that I have seen all the benefits of the claims yet, but my skin is smooth. I did not repurchase and after reading comparisons with COSRX I switched to that one. It has the same essential ingredients but also has hyaluronic acid and niacinimide (sp) for under $30. I will continue to use the COSRX.

This is the palette that I use more than any. Cool, neutral, and matte. I actually use all of the shades, with the black serving as an eyeliner. The only reason that I gave it 4 rather than 5 lippies is that I wish that it were a bit creamy. Not sure that matte and creamy go together. I will definitely repurchase this one.

I always wear neutral mattes and the Naked and Tarte palettes are long time favorites. I was in Dollar Tree and this Matte eyeshadow quad caught my eye. It has a light beige highlight shade, a light taupe, a deeper taupe, and a charcoal taupe shade. It goes on nicely over an eye shadow primer, blends well, and has little to no fallout. It lasts until removed with a makeup remover. Pretty …Read more

I have been pleased with the Revitalash Lash serum and decided to give their mascara a try. It is a very nice mascara that gives a natural, your lashes but better look. It is not thick and does not cause lashes to clump. They look very soft. I think that it a good daytime mascara giving a finished look . If you like really dramatic lashes this is not it.
