I like this scent overall. It's heavier for Marc Jacobs, but still quite light. It has nice lasting power compared to his other fragrances. This also has a high fashion, fall or winter vibe. It's very floral to me, which I love, and a hint of fruit and a good bit of amber. The packaging is absolutely stunning! It's a very "me" scent so I like it, but I'd say that I still prefer other fragrances as my very favorites so I didn't give it a full 5 stars. But I'd recommend this! 😁
My mother gave me this brow mascara and I was pleasantly surprised! I do not reach for Covergirl products often, but I do like this one. The curved brush really helps shape my straight brow hairs into place on my very arched brows. I have naturally dark, average thickness brows and this formula helps amp them up just a notch or two. I use Soft Brown. It never makes my brows look unnatural, but I can add brow powder beneath for a more dramatic effect. I like the formula of the brow mascara is not too waxy or shiny like others I've tried. It stays for a very long time and doesn't flake off. My only complaint is that the wand is a little longer than I would like, and leads me to get brow mascara on the area around my brows. If the wand was a bit shorter I'd reach for it more often, knowing I'd have less cleanups to make. I will likely repurchase this, as it is one of my favorite brow products and not expensive.
I have this product in the shade K, Bye. I received it in my ipsy bag. The color is a nudeish color with warm berry elements. It looks very natural on my fair olive skin but amps up my look more than a gloss. I can wear it as a great daytime or work lip color. The formula does not dry down fully, which I love because it's moisturizing and youthful looking. However, if you prefer a matte liquid lipstick or something transfer-proof, you will not like this product. Interestingly this product leave a little of a stain on me, which I love because it helps the color fade softly throughout the day without weird flaking or harsh lines. The packaging is sleek and the doe foot applicator is a good size. I would recommend this product and plan to purchase more from Trust Fund Beauty.
Hug Me is the perfect nude on my fair olive skin tone! I love the smooth creamy application of this lipstick and the lustre finish that is more dimensional than a matte. This lipstick is easy to apply and lasts for hours without reapplication. I personally do not use lip liner with this product and do not notice any feathering, however this is a light color so feathering is not noticeable anyways. This is more of a cool toned light nude so it would look ideal on those with cool skin tones, fair skin, or medium fair skin. I think the price is absolutely worth it, as a little product goes a long way and I reach for this lipstick weekly. I will repurchase lipsticks from MAC again!
I received this product in my ipsy bag and have used almost the entire tube. It applies very light and smooth, with a refreshing scent. I notice that my skin immediately looks brighter and softer, but it does not have as much of a blurring effect as I prefer. It helps provide a nice base for my bb or cc cream to attach to and helps keep my face products wearing longer throughout the day. I prefer other primers that have a more blurring effect to minimize my fine lines. It does minimize my pores, but not as much as other product I own from Lancome and MaryKay. If you have no blemishes or texture issues on your skin, this may be prime that you like.

This is such a unique fragrance! I received a travel size in my ipsy bag long ago. Immediately after discovery I made a purchase. It has a unique, light, clean scent that feels familiar without being cliche. It's very modern and if you prefer more traditional perfumes with layers and layers of notes, this will probably not suit your taste. However, I think it has a very classic luxurious feel, even with only one note. The scent does not last as long as something spicy or woody, but lasts longer than Marc Jacobs Daisy/Dot/Honey etc. I take my travel size sprayer with me so I can reapply a few hours into the day. I think it's a good value and would recommend this to someone looking for a unique, modern, signature fragrance.

I am mixed on this product, even though I have repurchased many times. When looking for a waterproof formula, I want something that still makes my lashes look full and curly, like my daytime mascara. This has to be layered several times before it really gives any volume to my lashes. It helps with length and separation, as do other plastic bristle type brushes. I think the applicator tip is a bit cumbersome and I often get mascara on my eyelids when applying. The mascara formula is long lasting and truly waterproof; I've actually swam in it with no transfer. However, the formula dries out my lashes so badly that it makes it severely uncomfortable to wear for a full day. This is my go-to water park mascara, because it holds up to water and can be worn for a few short hours before I remove it. I've repurchased but do not recommend it to those with sensitive eyes, or a tendency to pick at their lashes.
I first tried this product through my ipsy subscription. This matte liquid lippie applies smoothly and cleanly, with an intuitively designed applicator tip. The texture of the product is fluffy and light like a mousse. It never fully dries down, which helps keep my lips moisturized and soft. However, this makes it non-transfer proof. I personally do not care, as I am addicted to the texture and color. The color payoff is strong and lasts for at least 6 hours on me (without eating). I love the color Pin Up so much that immediately upon receiving the trial size I looked online for the full size product. Pin Up is a sort of nudeish berry color that provides a rich, but not overpowering color to my naturally light lips. This color would be flattering on most skin tones, particularly because of the formula opacity. The full size products are a bit pricey, but the formula and applicator are so ideal, it's worth it. I have repurchased and recommend this lipstick.
This is a very creative and unique product with mixed results. I rarely reach for this product. The product is in the end of the cap, so every time you twist the pencil back in, it pushes product onto the tip and creates a sharp point again. There is a learning curve with the use of this, but it's not intuitive. This is nice for creating sharper lines and wings, but soft pencils are not great at that in the first place so, the pointed tip is only mildly useful. The color payoff is great and it applies smoothly, allowing a little smudge time before setting completely. The color is fairly long wearing and does not usually need reapplication throughout the day. This is a very niche product that could be phenomenal for the ideal customer, but the average person will (and probably should) gravitate to a more traditional eyeliner purely for ease of use to price ratio. I will not repurchase.
This product is not for me. I wanted to love it because the texture is nice, but after repeated use I found that this is quite possibly the worst moisturizer I've ever tried. It's strange that it's called an "ultra repair moisturizer," when it immediately dries into my already dry skin and requires more than three layers of application to leave my skin feeling soft and less tight. I was expecting something much more hydrating or stronger. It applies smoothly and lightly, but the smell is a little foul, which also causes me to push this product away. I prefer moisturizers from Laneige, Lancome, MaryKay, and Clinique. This one does not do the job for me. Save your money if you have super dry skin.
