Mega Plush just an okay mascara. It takes forever to build up the product to my liking, resulting in a pretty natural defined look, no matter how much I put on. It does hold my curl nicely through the day (one of my major concerns), and gives a clump-free look. It'll also smudge a bit under my eyes throughout the day, but every mascara I've tried does that. I also did not like the bendy …Read more

I've had this in two shades, Tan and Natural. It blends really easily, either with a dual-fiber brush or my fingers, and is nicely pigmented, with a good range of colors. Unfortunately, it disappears from my face over the course of the day. I have to set it with a powder blush on top, which kind of defeats the point of cream blush...

The packaging, though nice looking, is pretty …

Tried applying this on my friend, but found that the colors were chalky, applied patchily, and were not very pigmented, even though they're so pretty! Didn't work with UDPP, either. However, I have Comfort Zone and like it a lot.

Bought this in Silk a while ago, and it's a great blush/highlighting product. Quite pigmented and you can adjust the color depending on where you swipe your brush. Has a hint of shimmer, but not glittery and it's very subtle. Good for day or nighttime looks.

Super pigmented, moisturizing, gorgeous dark pink/fuchsia color. It lasts pretty well, and can be put on fully for opaque creamy color, or blotted for a sheerer look.

My only gripe is that the product came loose from the screw-up mechanism part, so it doesn't go all the way down, and that sometimes product can get messy around the metal tube part.

My favorite go-to liquid liner. Very black, dries quickly, and easy to use applicator that allows for good precision. It washes off easily (so, not waterproof), but does not transfer, smudge, or fade over the course of the day. I usually use it for dance makeup, and it lasts through rounds of sweating. Packaging is pretty basic, but functional, and there seems to be a good amount of product …Read more

I received a sample of this and used it for about a week. It's very creamy and moisturizing, and feels gentle on my sensitive dry skin. Doesn't leave my skin tight or dried out. Not sure if the seaweed actually does anything. You don't need to use a large amount either, which is nice. Maybe about a quarter size. My main issue with it is that it did not remove my makeup very …Read more

I love this stuff. I have dry skin that freaks out during weather changes, and this cream is my go-to for fixing that as much as possible. I usually only use it at night, since it's so rich, but have used it during the day as well. I don't use foundation, so I don't know if it would lead to that "balling up" problem some other reviewers have reported. It takes a few …Read more

Got the teal version of this on sale, woot. Love! the effect it has, it's so cool. I got lots of compliments. The polish goes on easily and very opaque, so you might even be able to get away with one thick coat. The magnet takes a bit of practice to get the hang of, but it's easy enough. You just have to be really fast! And be careful to not touch the magnet to the polish. One minus is …Read more

I wanted to like this stuff, but I just can't. No matter how much I curl my lashes beforehand, this mascara straightens them out immediately! If it weren't for that, I'd like it. Nice dark black, thickening/volumizing effect with not-too-bad clumping if you wipe off the brush beforehand. I like the tapered wand as well, which allows for some precision in applying. Also, the tube is …Read more
