My new favorite beauty sponge. I cannot speak for the mini sponge since I did not buy the duo, but the big one is amazing. I can't compare it to the beauty blender since I haven't had one in a while, but compared to the real techniques, I like this a lot better. I overall like the shape of this sponge. The two flat sides are good for baking and liquids. Blends everything beautifully. Very soft and nice to use. Easy to clean. Haven't experienced any tears. And it's cheaper than the real techniques!
Really lovely product. I love this mainly because there's so much you can use it for. Of course the obvious, a face highlight. It doesn't emphasize my pores or any texture I may have. Gives a glow from within kind of look which I love. Looks natural but can be built up and be blinding. You can also use these as eyeshadows and the multiple colors in this can be used for face products such as bronzer, and blush (if you're into that shimmer look). Overall the best drugstore highlight in my opinion.
I have the shade Copenhagen and it is pretty good. Can't speak for all the shades but mine in particular can go on a little streaky, but it builds up nicely to an opaque layer. I find it to be a little difficult to apply, especially the dark colors, so I'd recommend a lip liner or using a lip brush. I do noticethe corners of my mouth start to wear off after a while too.
Been dying to get my hands on this and I'm so happy I finally did. I'm in love. The packaging overall is nice. I love the color and how sleek it feels. A little cheap feeling but who cares? The wand on it is also nice. It coats the lashes nicely. It provides a nice curl to the lashes as well that lasts. It can get a little clumpy if not careful, and it can be a bit messy on the bottom lashes too. Overall still great. One of the few drugstore mascaras that give you that falsie look. Makes your lashes look long and fluttery but can be dramatic too. It doesn't feel heavy on the eyes, the curl lasts and very minimal flaking. I love it so much, it lives up to the hype.

Really nice eyeshadow palette especially for beginners. Great for every day looks or for someone who doesn't like a ton of eyeshadow. Each shade is pigmented and smooth. The darkest ones seem a little patchy but on the eyes they work great. All of them blend nicely and I don't notice much fallout. I gave 4 stars just because I feel you can't create tons of looks with this, but again, it's perfect for people who like minimal looks. I love it on my natural days! And it smells like chocolate. Yum!
A great drugstore contour palette! If you're new to contouring and don't want to spend a huge chunk of money, get this! It's awesome. The whiter shade actually makes a very pretty highlight for the face. I used it for a long time. Pretty yellow toned and it isn't glittery. It gives a glow within kind of look. The yellow undereye powder is sadly too dark for me. If you're fair, I don't think it'll work. It'll just make your undereye dark. The bronzer shade is pretty warm but I can make it work with a light hand. The contour shade is pretty nice as well. Again a little warm but I can make it work. All blend super nicely and all shades are pigmented. Each square can actually pop out too, so you can mix and match with their other palettes that are like this. Love this!
Such a soft brush and has multiple uses. Currently use this as a face powder brush to set my face but I have used this for foundation, bronzing, and applying blush. After multiple washes it stays soft and there's no shedding.
Awesome brush for an awesome price. One of those brushes you can use for several things. Foundation, blush/cream blush, contouring, bronzing, highlight, etc. It does it all! Soft and does a great job blending whatever you need blended. After multiple washes it's still going strong. No shedding!
Awesome product for an awesome price. You do go through it fast since there's not much product, but I'm okay with spending $3 to buy more. I don't use the lash side too much, only on days where I wear no makeup but want some oomph to my natural lashes without having to wear mascara. I find it gives a little length and separation while looking natural. Tried using it as an eyelash primer but I haven't been able to get it to work. Kinda clumpy after applying mascara. Brow side is great and really locks your brows into place all day. If I get too carried away my brows can feel crunchy but honestly I'm not bothered by it. Awesome product.
For the price, it's not a bad brush at all. I mainly use this to smudge color on my lash lines, or highlight my brow bone. It does do a decent packing color on the lid, but I use my finger to do that anyways. It's soft and stiff, not too stiff, making it good to smudge color. After multiple washes it continues to stay soft and there's no shedding.
