There's no doubt that the RT brushes are GREAT quality for the price.

This brush in particular is the only one I've been not satisfied with.

For someone who needs full coverage and layers their foundation to get coverage, this brush is just too small for me. It takes me twice as long to buff in my foundation with this as it would with a flat top brush. I can see …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Perfection Volumizing Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/07/2014

I've already repurchased this twice. It is THE best mascara I've ever used. I bought this after seeing ciaobellaxo on YouTube rave about it.

This mascara does everything it should. Lengthens, volumizes and separates. It does not flake and lasts all day! It has a plastic brush, whichs some people don't like, but I find them to be the best for lenghtening and getting …

I really didn't want to love this as much as I do, becuase for me it's insanely pricey. But it's worth the $45 bucks.

I have very yellow undertones and my skin gets very pale in winter and very tan in summer. I purchased this in Light 4 Deauville which is about NC20, so it's great for my pale skin and also my yellow undertone. The color selection is great and …

This foundation is one of the best I've tried. I really love glowy or satin finishes in a foundation and this one really is the perfect balance. It doesn't look "wet" or oily, but is far from a dead, matte finish also. It's a perfect satin "skin" like finish. I buff this in with a Sigma F82 or ELF flat top brush.

It's a medium coverage …

This concealer is the best I've tried for covering blemishes. I can't speak for using it undereyes because I have not tried that. It seems like it would be too thick for undereyes. I am NC25-30 and use 04 Beige in this concealer.

It is thick and creamy. I apply it with my fingers and pat it into the skin and blemishes where I need coverage. It covers great and matches my skin …

This is amazing! I really do need more of a medium/full coverage foundation, but for when my skin is looking decent in the summer months I love this with some concealer.

I have dry, acne prone skin. I am roughly NC27/30 and bought C3, the match is literally perfect for me. I prefer to use a buffing or stippling brush with this, as opposed to my fingers (which a lot of people seem to …

I am currenlty hating that I didn't have this all through high school. It feels great, it's really cheap and it does a great job of making my skin smooth, clearer and healthier.

I use this at least once a week, up to 3 or 4 times if I am breaking out.

I have dry skin and this doesn't make me irritated, too dry, or flaky. Just make sure to …

I'm new to blush and this is an excellent way to try out a bunch of colors.

I am in love with this palette! it has a great array of shades and different finishes.
They all actually complement my NC25 skin very well. I found these to be really pigmented and blendable, which was surprising because it's only $15! They have average staying quality, but that's not …

May/12/2011

I really wanted to like this stuff. it worked pretty well and was really convenient.

I don't mind the smell, but it is pretty strong. So some people might not like it.

The reason I won't be repurchasing this is because it broke me out. I will continue to try to use this for my eye brushes, but as for the face brushes...it broke me out with about 10 new pimples …

This is a great drugstore bronzer. My only gripe is the bad packaging. The lid often falls off, and because I dropped mine and broke it, the lid didn't keep ANY of the pieces in side. I had to toss it.

It's matte and pigmented and blends well. I used this everyday in winter! The only reason I won't be repurchasing is because of the packaging, and I've found that …
