Overall, I really like this eye shadow. I use it to create a smokey eye - it's much softer looking than black. The subtle shimmer make this eyeshadow less monotonous as well.

after 2 months of using this i dont like it. firstly, my skin is nc 20 and combination, but not flakey or in need of blotting during the day, its just more dry outside of my t zone. i have this in light and its much more yellow than my natural skin tone, although when i blend it in you cant tell. the texture of this is something i really dont like. it feels greasy when you blend it in and it also …Read more

i have a lot of sheer colored glosses and i bought this because i wanted to try something different. im not very adventurous with shimmery lip glosses, but this is subtle. the color is a peached pink with gold through it and it smells like an orange creamsicle. it stays fairly sheer looking on (it doesnt really add much color) but it does leave behind a peachy gold shimmer. if you want a less …Read more

this color matches my lip color almost exactly so it goes great with any lip gloss i own over it. the automatic-ness is really handy as i think a lot of product is wasted in pencils that need to be sharpened. the only thing i didnt like was the cap because it didnt stay on the pencil securely. sometimes the cap would fall off in my purse and i would end up with pink lines over everything. a great …Read more

i really like this brush because it combined a brush and a mirror and closed into a small, easy to travel with compact. mine did not last as long as i would have liked it to. it broke after only 6 months, and although i liked it while it lasted, it wasnt very hardy, which doesnt make it very suitable for travelling in my opinion.

i like this moisturizer because of the broad spectrum sun protection, but thats about it. when i put this on, it makes my face feel hot, and i dont have very sensitive skin at all. it also made my face greasy looking, and i prefer a more matte looking moisturizer.

there are some definite pros and cons for this. i like the way this builds up your lashes with every coat you put on, but without an eyelash comb, clumping would be a big problem. also, i feel like the brush is a little too large on the ends to reach the corners of the eyelashes well. i also dont like how it tends to flake after a while. i like to use this onmy lower lashes since it helps define …Read more

firstly, i have to say ive had this for almost a year and its still half full! when i got this i was apprehensive because it looked like there was only a small amount in it, but a little goes a long way for this product. the coverage is great - it has a clay-like texture like someone else said and i feel like the dryness of this product helps it stay. i have always used this for covering small …Read more

i started liking this fragrance when i smelled it on other people but i couldnt handle it on myself. it was so cloying and sweet it started disgusting me...i felt bad because i got it as a gift with the whole set. in the end i also felt like i wanted a more mature smelling perfume, as well as something a little more complex and sexy which this wasnt to me.
