This product isn't really usable because it flakes so much. After a couple hours of wearing it, you will have white flakes in your eyebrows. Doesn't hold hairs in place very well either. The packaging is okay, nothing special.

I've gone through 2 or 3 of these already. It's great as a setting powder for concealer and as a blotting powder for reducing shine. However, it wouldn't work as a foundation on its own because it is so sheer. I like the applicator it came with and the packaging is decent. Fairly expensive for a drugstore powder though (I think I paid around CAN$15).

This is my favourite blush! I have pale skin, and this looks very natural on me. It's the perfect amount of pink with a bit of shimmer that works as a highlighter. I wear it all the time. The downsides: it's a bit pricey (CAN$25) and the pan fell out of the compact (I had to glue it back in). Will probably repurchase when I run out.

The worst part about this product is the packaging. It's nearly impossible to pull out just one towelette without 2 or 3 extra coming out with it. Then, you can't push the extra ones back through, you have to remove the entire lid and pull them from inside. They smell very medicinal and they do a poor job of removing makeup. Thumbs down. :(

I usually love Marcellle products but this one is awful. I don't know if it's just the package I got, but the cloths felt almost completely dry. They did a horrible job of removing makeup and worst of all, they sting!! My skin was burning after I used these. I definitely would not recommend.

I love this eye cream, it is amazing! It is so moisturizing and I swear I notice a difference in my under-eye circles when I use it regularly. The ingredients are phenomenal, all natural and organic! It is relatively inexpensive too. I like that it comes in a glass pump bottle, but the packaging is nothing special. I would definitely repurchase.

I thought I would love this product, but I was disappointed. It's supposed to be good for dry skin, but it dried my skin out even more. It smells like bug spray. And, it didn't do a very good job of removing makeup, even though it claims to. The ingredients are wonderful, but it does contain limonene as a naturally occurring compound in the fragrance, which I've read is a possible …Read more

I got this lip gloss in watermelon as a free gift with purchase. The ingredients are beyond impressive, as with all the 100 Percent Pure products. So far everything I've tried from this brand has been amazing, but this was my first letdown.

Cons:
-very, very watery texture
-glossiness wears off fast
-tastes bad

Pros:
-100% natural …

I bought this to use as an eyebrow gel. It doesn't make my brows hard or flaky, but it also doesn't do its job of keeping the hairs in place. It takes a long time to dry and my brows are soon out of place again. Definitely will not repurchase. I'm going to try applying regular hair gel with a mascara wand instead.
