This actually brightens skin!
Wow, I was shocked by how well this works. While you're washing, it has a cooling effect. It really scrubs away all the dirt and oil. Unlike other exfoliators, this does not feel like sand paper on your face. It does get rid of any dirt and oil though. The thing I like best about this is that it actually brightens your face! There was a couple of days I had to spend indoors and needless to say I lost any tan I had (not much!). I was really pale but after I used this, my skin went from dead to radiant! This truly brightens your skin no matter how dead it may look.

Very subtle but NEVER budges
This is perfect for everyday use if you want your eyeliner to be subtle. If you are going to buy this, you should buy it in a shade darker than what you want. I bought it in bronze and it comes out very light. The only problem with this is the color, I love that this NEVER budges all day long. so if you get the right color, this will work wonders on you.

Pros: convenient packaging, amazing smell, good value, good for frizz, this makes my ends softer Cons: if you put too much in it will weigh your hair down and make your ends look wet and bunched together, it makes my ends soft BUT does not actually help much with split ends

The color matched my eyes perfectly and really shows up well. I bought this because it was on sale for $3-4 (great price!). It was really soft and pigmented for the price. I haven't had any problems with smudging so far. The result looks natural without being subtle, worth the purchase!

Great length, not much volume
I love how buildable this mascara is, it makes it easy to go from a natural to a dramatic look. This made my lashes really long and visible. The rubber brush is easy to use and really separates your lashes, giving you a clean look. However, this mascara didn't give me much volume. This does not clump and really holds a curl well though. I tested this out in the shower and it is actually waterproof and doesn't budge. I will repurchase this without a doubt since this is my new favorite mascara!

I like the buildable formula with minimal flaking. The problem is the spoon brush; it doesn't come out of the thing that scrapes off excess straight so you get clumps. To solve this, just wipe off the excess on a tissue. It's a pain but it's the best way to avoid the clumping. Otherwise, this is really good for length but not so much volume. This holds a curl well and stays on all day. It's hard to remove though and impossible without makeup remover (unless you se olive oil like I do, in which case it comes right off). Don't expect a false lash look either and the ads are definitely modified because nobody who uses this mascara ends up with lashes that dramatic. I wanted to love this because my friend recommend it but I'd rather stick with Maybelline's One by One, a nice alternative. (I did one on each eye and they give the same results except this one clumps). Update: you just have to wait a few days for the product to dry out and you'll love this! It actually gives you the shape it advertises, just less volume.

Good for brows & bottom lashes
I bought this for a dollar at target and I have been using it everyday on my brows ever since. It's easy to apply and it does not become flaky if you apply the right amount. I like to use this on my bottom lashes only to keep them in place. This works well as a primer for colored mascara to avoid clumping. I have used this on my top lashes and it does a good job of keeping them in place. I feel like it weighed down my curls a bit though. However, I would recommend buying a separate lash brush or pick up a free sample one from sephora to separate your lashes before/after applying this. The lash brush is big and it's hard to get to the smaller lashes so having a separate lash brush would help for that too. The packaging is convenient but looks cheap. There is a decent amount of product inside for the price. Overall, I would recommend this for brows and bottom lashes or as a primer for colored mascara.

Could be better
This does a good job moisturizing, but nothing special. It's not too thick nor too watery. I don't like the scent, it smells like old oatmeal. It's a bit too pricey for the quality but it does last a while.

Not as good as the original
This pomegranate kind does not work as well as the original because it lacks the minty sensation. I feel like it's more oily than waxy and doesn't do as good of a job moisturizing my lips. I would go with the original kind, not this one.

This is great to use for powder when you're in a hurry because it's a pretty big brush and makes applying powder faster. You could use it for blush I guess, but it's a little too large for precise application. This is only a dollar and the bristles are pretty soft. It has already started shedding but it's a pretty packed brush so it's not a big concern.
