This is the best liquid lipstick brand I have ever tried. I only have one color, because they sell out of everything instantly when a restock happens, but it is my favorite lipstick out of everything I own. It is very liquid, and in order to apply it properly I do wipe off the excess product from the wand to ensure a very thin, even layer. It's incredibly lightweight and I forget that …Read more

This is my new favorite blush. I needed something to replace Hervana by Benefit, and when I tried this I was like "Hervana? More like WHOvana?" Har har. It blows every other blush I've used right out of the water. It's a beautiful formula, very pigmented and customizable depending on where you choose to swipe the brush (on the lighter lines or the darker-- I just swipe across …Read more

I got one of these for my birthday, in the new Watermelon Soda. It smells like a watermelon candy, but that smell goes away once it dries. I felt like there was a definite learning curve with this formula, since it is very liquid, but once you get used to that, it's actually preferable to the creamier matte lipsticks. This formula is comfortable, and not drying at all.

This stuff is iconic, and for good reason. It feels great, especially on a hot day, and I love using it after I wash my face, before I moisturize. There is no added scent, just what occurs naturally in the ingredients. It's clean, with a hint of grape to it. I love it, and I'll keep buying it as long as they keep making it.

The color is beautiful, and very pigmented. I love that one swipe is enough for opaque coverage, and while the first 10 minutes after it dries is uncomfortable, it does pass and then it feels comfortable for the rest of the day. But the fade on this is not pretty. For something that is supposed to be long-wearing, this got an ugly fading ring in the center of my lips at around the 4th hour. I do …Read more

I got this palette recently, brand new, about 70% off the retail price (it was deeply on sale). Many of the frost/glitter shades were ones I didn't have the equivalent to, so I decided to buy it. I like the look I made with it, though the matte shades are extremely powdery. I felt like there was more eyeshadow on my cheeks than there was on my eyes. The shimmery colors in the palette were …Read more

I finally found it! A waterproof eyeliner that's still easy to remove at the end of the day!

I love the brush for this, first of all. The precision and control I get with it is better than I ever thought was possible. Trooper is dark black, and while I do need to go over some spots again to get it all uniformly dark, I don't mind because it's so easy to do. I just sort …

It's so crumbly! I keep using it because I ran out of my other eyeliners and I got this one as a gift. But it's a total pain to apply, and can literally be a pain when a crumble gets into my eye. Which does happen at some point in the day. It's so funny that Perversion was too soft for me, and this one is too crumbly. I love the 24/7 eyeliners in the bright or glittery colors, but …Read more
