Wish it lasted longer!
I bought this for a dollar in cherry tart which is a great red that looks natural without being subtle. I love the color and it's easy to apply, you just twist the bottom and product comes up through the applicator. It reminds me of a highly pigmented lipgloss because it does have a lot of shine. It doesn't last that long though, not more than a few hours. At least it doesn't run or come off when you're drinking something. Can't beat the price though :) probably will repurchase because of how much I love the color! Update: ELF's essential lipstick in the shade classy is very similar in color to the liquid lipstick in cherry tart. I would use this instead because it lasts longer and it's not so glossy. I know that the essential's lipstick has gotten some bad reviews but I actually love it, it's very smooth, doesn't smell bad, doesn't bleed, decent staying power, very nice color, and it's only a dollar!

Where's the pigmentation?
I was so excited to try this because the colors were really good for everyday use. However, I feel like I'm putting a translucent powder on my lids because this does absolutely nothing for them. I've tried wetting my eyeshadow brush, using my fingers, using primer, but I still get no color payoff. I even bought a cheap palette from Forever 21, embarrassing I know but juicystar07 recommended it, and it has WAY more pigmentation than this. I would never purchase this again.

No creases, great pigmentation, love!
This shadow stays on all day even with no primer. It does not crease and it's easy to blend. The color selection is decent and they have the right amount of shimmer, perfect for everyday use. The only con is the value, you don't get much for the price you pay but it will last a while since a little goes a long way.

Does nothing for dark circles
I would never purchase this again, it does not cover dark circles unless you use A LOT. It does get cakey if you put a lot on. It slightly fades blemishes which is the only good thing about it. There is barely anything inside the tube so you use it up within a couple weeks. When I put the brush back into the highlighter and close it, excess product oozes out! Bad design, does not work well at all, not worth it. Even ELF's tone correcting concealer works better than this.

Makes hair soft and shiny!
I got compliments on my hair on how soft and shiny it was. This also helped to make my hair more wavy. I have straight fine hair that's hard to hold a style and this did a decent job. I love the price of only $3 and how well this works. I would definitely recommend this since it's also environmentally friendly.

Love the blush, like the bronzer.
I love the blush! It's the perfect shade for fair skin and it has just the right amount of pigmentation in it for daily use. The bronzer however is a little too pigmented for fair skin, you have to simply tap your brush on it, not sweep it otherwise it'll be too much. Love the price and quality, and stylish packaging.

Less full than expected, but it works
It's a lot less dense than I expected but it still works fine because of the nice angle it has. Good for precise application of blush and bronzer.

No shedding or brush strokes: love!
This was only a dollar and it leaves no brush strokes when applying foundation but yet the brush is sturdy and theres been no shedding at all. Great quality and great value!

Why all the bad reviews?
This actually works really well for removing pencil eyeliner and eye shadow. You don't have to rub hard to take it off. The pads are thin and are the size of the bottom of small soda or coffee cup. The size was disappointing but it actually did the job well. It leaves sort of a sticky residue but that only lasts for a few minutes. These don't sting your eyes at all, just make sure you keep your eyes closed. The pads were really moist and there's a lot inside. I bought this for travel, not for everyday use. It's only a dollar so I suggest trying it out! Tip: if you're having trouble removing waterproof mascara, rip two of the pads in half, and place one under each eye so that your eyelashes hang over it. Then, take the other two pads you ripped in half and press them over each eye. This way you're creating a sandwich with the makeup removing pads and your lashes. Let the makeup remover dissolve the mascara for a few minutes (just sit/lay down and relax in the meantime) but make sure you press down. Simply remove the pads when you're done and wipe away any excess with the clean sides of the pads and that's it! I learned this method from a professional makeup artist guru on YouTube (forgot the name....). This method even works for removing Maybelline's mascaras that are nearly impossible to take off such as Falsies an One by One.

This is nothing special, it does a good job taking away oil and doesn't make you look cakey. There's lots in the compact and it lasts a while. It's better if you use it with a brush instead. It just doesn't last very long, so that's disappointing.
