Value for money
This is a great value for money product. Much cheaper than illamasqua and does pretty much the same job. I wouldn't get this for the longevity it gives to the eyeshadows, rather than the finish. It makes eyeshadows and pigments shine better, and gives the whole potential of any colour. Accentuates the shimmery finish, the duochromes and gives a foiling effect. It is a must have item for a make-up fanatic on the budget.
Oh I love this..
This must be one of my all time favourite products. The amount of moisture infused on you skin is unbelievable. My skin is oily and it is a great addition to my make-up stash. I wouldn't think it would be as amazing to dry skin types, but i guess it might work best as a setting spray for these skin types! The smell is close to a L'oreal product but I guess that is pleasant. Lindenflower is a great natural product. To sum up.. I think you'll love this. The bottle is huge and it will last you for at least 4 months of daily use.
These are beautiful and long wearing,
They are BEAUTIFUL and longwearing!The aplicator isn't the best in the market but makes the application really easy for me.They are easy to wear, make a huge difference to an everyday-wearable eye look. They don't smudge and if used together they compliment each other very well.
A bit chalky and not as vibrant as they look on the photo.

It is a pretty good quad for the price. The packaging is definitely too cheap, extremely dainty and fragile and of course the brush included is rubbish. The eyashadows are really chalky and most of them contain a small amount of glitter particles. They are more on the brown side in person, I especially got this for the peach shade but is not as vibrant in person. They don't last at all without primer (they don't even show up all that much without it) but with a bit of pixie epoxy and a good amount of eyeshadow packed on the lid, they do the job. I wasn't expecting much for $2 anyway. They are 4 eyashadows and cruelty free, that is the best deal you can get.
A holy grail product

I didn't think much of that at first, it seemed like there was a gimmick or something. But it had rave reviews, they said it works wonders. So since it's really cheap, I got it. In the begging, there's no results, it may help the cysts reveal and come to the surface. You may have less spots and zits..but the wonder to it is that it unclogges the pores, and minimizes them. It REALLY REALLY does so.You will be amazed progressively. Just take some photos of yourself now and 2 months-6months later. Cut the pads in 2 or 3, they are pretty big for only one use.I highly recommend and I will most definetely repurchuse! (55 pads in three pieces last me a year)

It's preety cheap and has a very practical packaging! The cream comes in a dispenser and the amount is really good! I'm only 24 so I've been mostly using mosturising eye-creams as I don't have any problems so far. But I think that this cream brightens the eye area! I've been using Vichy Oligo25 and Avene but I think this is the one I prefer the most! I would suggest you put it in the fridge so as to have a better cooling effect on your eye area! Tottally recomend it! I'm really pleased!

We use microfiber towels for dusting in my house. I never, till 2 months ago have though that you could use them for spot cleaning brushes. I saw a blog post on cleaning your make up brushes, and the blogger suggested, swiping the bristles on the microfiber towel to clean them between washes. The eyeshadow particles, that resemble dust, just stick on the clothe. I use it daily to swipe my brushes (eyeshadow, mineral make-up, powder blush etc.) and it removes 95% of the colours on them. Just 5-10 swipes and they are ready! This will keep my brushes in a pristine condition for longer as less washing will keep the glue holding the bristles intact. I then spray them with a bit of rubbing alcohol and voila! I used to wash my make up brushes every day after use, and I still do for the ones I used with creams or liquids. I hated brush cleaner spray, as took forever to dry and required such a fuss. This clothe is pretty big, I have cut it in 6 pieces and sewn the edges. I toss the dirty ones in the washer and use a clean ones in rotation. I am sure they do a mean job in the house, but I can't review it over that! I definitelly recommend them!
You are gonna love this!
I am 24 years old with a really oily acne prone skin. At first sight it looks nothing like a powerful product but the results are amazing already! It unclogged my pores and heals my zits and acne much faster. I love it! It's a huge bottle so it's gonna last for good 5 months. I absolutely recommend this if you have inperfections, zits and acne prone skin.
As great as I thought it would be!
One of my favourite youtube chefs foodwishes' chef john uses these occasionally. I live in Greece and is a really difficult product to find. So I order it via iHerb. Try oven-roasted onion rings with those.. Here's the recipe Ingredients: 2 egg whites 2 tbsp milk pinch of cayenne 1 yellow onion, sliced, separated into 1/2-in thick rings 1/2 cup flour, seasoned w/ salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste 3 to 4 cups Panko vegetable oil spray I guess you know the drill. Just try it.. It's as good if not better than the fried ones.

I own 19 brushes from bdellium tools. I own 12 pieces of their studio line (the whole eye set plus #957) which I almost hate) and 7 from both green and pink bambu series (this set, #776 from the pink and #781 from their green series). I own a LOT of brushes. I like to try different types from different price ranges. I love some ELF, some dirty cheap ones I have found on ebay that are AMAZING, but I also love my hakuhodo ones. This is a good set. Bdellium tools are not consistent with their quality unfortunately.. my studio series ones were rough, sheded, got broken, lost their shape and were a definite flop. The bambu set on the other hand, that is also cheaper, is good as new! I especially love #959 which is indispensable. It is my favourite mineral make up brush. This brush almost melts the product right into my skin. I also tried #787 as a foundation brush as it is so enormous that can't fit my socket properly... I was that amazed that now is my go to liquid foundation brush. Small, precise and gives a pixel perfect result. I use it in a stippling and buffing motion. Those two are the stellar brushes from the set. I would repurchase even for only those two. they are that good!
A bit too nude for my rosy lips.
It has a lovely bright coral colour but is a bit too nude for my lips. It has a creamy, thick texture that falls right inbetween your natural rinkles of your lips so you have to mosturize your lips well, give them a little scrub to loose the chaps and then quickly wipe them as too much moisture will make the lip colour apply unevenly as well. I like it, I will try some other colours.
