Lemon Aid does brighten my eye lids, but the effect is unnatural. In daylight, I could see chalky, yellowish powder over my eye lids-- not a desirable result. To get a 'wake-me-up' look, I recommend using a base eye shadow in a color that blends with your natural skin tone. Realistically, this product is unnecessary and nothing impressive.

This product provides average coverage and evens out the skin tone. But, this product also made me break out, which virtually never happens; I am not prone to acne! I immediately disposed of this bronzer. Also, the packaging is a nightmare. The filter at the top of the bottle never lets enough product into the brush. As a result, I had to shake the bottle a lot to release the powder. Ultimately …Read more

Apparently this gloss is supposed to enhance your natural lip color. It does not. After application, my lips were an unappealing pink shade. But at least the consistency of the gloss is smooth. Otherwise, it is overpriced and not impressive.

I bought this product because the lotion is initially luminous and beautiful. However, the glow disappears very quickly; you only notice the "skin perfecting" effects immediately after application! Otherwise, my skin tone did not reveal significant perkiness. The price is not worth the results.

This product definitely gives an ultra frosty sheen that highlights the cheekbone. It helps create the illusion that your face has more dimensionality. The color is subtle and natural. However, I do not recommend using this product during the day time as the sparkles become evident. Also, the consistency is smooth and creamy and dries quickly into the skin once applied. It is a beautiful …Read more

This product is very so-so. As the reviewers will all confirm, the burning sensation is harsh. And perhaps this would be bearable if the results were more visible. Unfortunately, there is minimal plumping action. However, the Cinnamon scent is lovely! Also, the gloss is ultra shiny, giving the lips incredible dimensionality. But, the texture is thick and sticky. Lastly, the gloss will definitely …Read more

The key to receiving the full potential of this product is to MOISTURIZE well under the eye area. Thicker concealers, such as this one, tend to become dry and cakey. Unfortunately, women with dark circles require thicker concealer. This is how you overcome the problem: Use a TINY, pin-drop dab of pure vitamin e oil under the darkest part of the under eye area. Then, mix it in with a little drop …Read more

This eye liner runs on smoothly and effortlessly. It leaves a pure white color without being too overwhelming. The texture is a little chalky and matte. In addition, it can be removed easily with makeup remover. Lastly, the staying power of the liner is not great, but decent.

Coralista is a sexy, saturated pinkish coral. It gives a subtle amount of pigment, while providing a frosty highlight. The blush is also quite sheer and soft. Unfortunately, in daylight, one can detect tiny sparkles in the blush. I personally do not like this as it gives a slightly unnatural appearance. On a positive note, however, the sparkles are very finely milled. Moreover, this blush looks …Read more
