Left my face feeling greasy and slippery, seemed to sink into pores and clog them up. Did nothing to keep makeup on longer and actually seemed to make my foundation apply LESS evenly. Did not give the anti-aging benefits a chance to work because this felt so unpleasant on my skin that after a few uses I got rid of it. As a serum it might or might not work, but as a primer it is terrible and NOT recommended.

My favorite mascara!
This is my go-to mascara. It's inexpensive, so it's easy to throw it out and buy a fresh one as often as you are supposed to. The version I use is not waterproof, but it stays where I want it unless I rub my eyes or get soaked in the rain. Applied with a light hand, it gives you long, dark lashes. I like the brush, although some people apparently don't. I have dark hair and I want thick, curvy, dark lashes. Because of the short shelf life of mascara, I refuse to pay a lot to get what I want, and with this one I don't have to.

Fantastic body scrub
Delicious chocolate smell, very nice and exfoliating... the scrubbing grains don't melt away as soon as you rub them on, but are smooth and leave skin nice and soft. Moisturizes skin, but does not leave even a slight oily feeling on you or your tub. Recommend very highly. I purchase it over and over again. One of the best overall scrubs I have tried.

Love it or hate it...
This seems to be a fragrance that people either can't stand or can't live without. I like it very much. It is very sweet initially, but if applied to pulse points, it dries down to a very warm smell. To me it smells slightly of caramel... in a good way. I am not a teenager and I wear it and my husband never complains.

Colors are nice, but do not apply well!
The color combinations of this product are very nice. However, the cream shadow is stored in a little reservoir at the tip of each end of the want, and it's nearly impossible to get any shadow onto the applicator. I like the shadow, and once you've managed to get enough out to apply it, it looks pretty and stays nice through the day. I would probably purchase the shadows in a compact, but will not buy them again this way. If you are looking for something to throw in your purse for a hint of color touch-up, this might work.

Fun colors but not great as a mascara...
If you are looking to recreate the fun looks that you can do with pricey bright-colored mascaras from Urban Decay, but don't really want to pay almost $20 for mascara, this is worth a try. The blue is VERY blue and it will turn your lashes bright blue, but you can use it on the tips of lashes after applying a better-quality black mascara and get a nice look. Bright colors would probably be good for a party look. Somewhat lengthening. Will flake off on your face if you rub your eyes. For the price, I like having the blue one around to play with, but it will never be my everyday mascara.

Clumpy and messy!
This is an awful mascara. The colors are pretty, but that doesn't change the fact that it is runny, messy, and causes lashes to stick together in ugly clumps. It's impossible to apply without it getting all over your eyelids.

Smells and feels nice
This lip balm does have a jelly-like texture and it smells delicious. The colors are pretty, and they do show up on the lips. The product is not extremely long-lasting, but neither are most glosses. When applied, it will stay pretty for at least an hour or two. Since it's easy to carry in a purse or pocket (container closes tightly and won't get messy) it's easy to reapply. Having to apply it with fingers is a little messy.

Easy to use and lasts all day!
I have oily skin, and almost every liner has ended up underneath my eyes or smudged all over the place within a few hours. This is still exactly where I put it and nowhere else twelve hours later! The colors are intense but matte, so they don't look too bright. I have never tried to put eyeliner on the inside of my lashes (OW!) so I have no idea how it would work in that area. For me, the selling point is that it is easy for even uncoordinated users like me to apply perfectly, and it lasts ALL day, even on oily eyelids.

Makes skin soft and pretty, but lacks staying power
When applied, this primer leaves a nice soft finish and makes skin look smooth, and it does a good job of making pores much less visible. I occasionally wear it alone when I don't want to put makeup on, and it gives a nice finish to bare skin. However, it does not last through a work day... pores will start to reappear and skin will start to feel greasy. It also doesn't seem to do much to improve the look or staying power of makeup, which is one of the reasons I use a primer. It is nice, but for the price I'm not sure whether I will buy it again.
