I bought this liner because I have contact eczema on my eyelids and my other liner (Physicians Formula liquid) dries out way too fast. This is a much better value. I have it in both colors. The brown is dark and chocolatey. The black is definitely soft -- don't buy it if you are looking for something jet black. It is a great black if you have fair coloring or warm toned skin. …Read more

I love this lipstick. It is moisturizing and the color payoff is good. If you layer, it lasts quite a while. I have it in three colors (one was a mistake but the other two are good.) I especially love Currant Affair -- it is the perfect, warm-toned, wearable red for my medium warm skin tone.

I have two of these. The color selection isn't the best. Most colors have too much shimmer for me. However, it is a very creamy, moisturizing formula. The pigmentation is good and the staying power is comparable to any standard lipstick. Definitely a good value.

The quality of these products is great for the price. The color payoff is great and they stay put for a long time. I can see them being to drying for some people but no more than any other long stay, matte lipstick.

This is decent alternative to Colorstay (combo to oily skin.) It is pretty lightweight. It doesn't blend as easily as some foundations do (I like to apply with my hands and I guess not all foundations are made for that.) I don't think it has the staying power that it claims to have (it is pretty average) and nor does it exactly function as a primer. My pores look huge if I apply it …Read more

This is a good mascara if you are going for a natural look. It definitely doesn't volumize much, but it does give you a good deal of length, especially if you layer. I have this in brown which is a dark, muted brown. I haven't noticed any flaking and only minor smudging.

I too got this mascara based on emilynoel83's review. This one didn't do it for me. The formula is very dry and not buildable. Your lashes have already dried into little clumps by the time you are ready for the second layer. The brush is long and kind of hard to work with. It lengthens and volumizes a little bit -- pretty average in both. It doesn't flake at all, but smudges …Read more

This is a decent, average eye liner. Doesn't smudge a ton, but it does fade. Not as creamy as I would like, but doesn't tug either. There are lots of drugstore liners that will perform similarly though -- Neutrogena, Physicians Formula if you have sensitive eyes and many more brands if you don't.

I love this product. I don't have high cheekbones and I don't like how blushes look on me for the most part. A makeup artist at Sephora put a Guerlain liquid tint on me (nearly $50) and I liked how that looked. So, I started looking for a liquid blush that was cheaper and found this. It looks very natural (I got it in Rose) on my medium skin with warm undertones. Although it is …Read more
