While the pink isn't super noticeable on my quite tanned skin, the bronzer is a really pretty, shimmery brown that I really like. It makes me feel all girly and sparkly. On fairer skin I imagine it would be excellent.

A really nice, matte bronzer. On my skin tone it doesn't bronze so much, because I'm already so tanned, but I use it in place of a blush just to lightly contour and it works really well. The fact that it's matte just makes it look really nice and natural.

After years of being convinced that I couldn't pull off blush that was even remotely pink, I am totally converted! This is the perfect shade of reddy-pinky-coral for my skin tone, and it goes on sheer so you can choose between a natural flush and full on blush. Plus it smells amazing. A billion times recommended.

I'm a bit of a klutz and an idiot when it comes to applying eye colour, so I bought this partially because of the lesson it gives you, and I can say right now that it's idiot-proof and spot on. Super easy to use and follow, everything you need is right there!
The quality is typical benefit, of course, so everything is beautiful and stays really well, HOWEVER the included eyeliner is really hard, much harder than I'm used to because I generally use soft kajal. I couldn't get a dark enough line without hurting my eyelids. Not a problem for me, I have plenty of eyeliners.

Beautiful colour, and so much more comfortable to wear than lipstick. Plus it smells absolutely beautiful. My only complaint is that it tastes really horrible, as opposed to the 'nothing' taste of lipstick, and obviously it's difficult to never accidentally taste your lip colour.
Still, if that's my only complaint about a non-edible product, it must be doing pretty well!

This has literally restored my faith in blush! I've avoided it for years as somehow they always look fake and ridiculous on my skin tone, but this one blends beautifully and enhances, giving me a dramatic look without making me look clownish. Beautiful colour and easy to apply, even for a klutz like me.

Perfect mascara! Never clumps, always goes on beautifully. However, as others have mentioned, it's not super dramatic with only one coat on. Not a problem for me as I like my makeup natural =)

Perfect every day eye makeup! It's subtle but effective, and super comfortable to wear. Perfect for work.

My absolute favourite product, I can't live without it. I have a skin tone that is really difficult to match (a professional makeup artist with 20 types of foundation at her disposal STILL had to mix 3 shades) but this is so light that it goes on perfectly without making me look too pale or orange. It's not heavy coverage, but I prefer a lighter feel anyway - you don't feel like you're wearing anything! And it doesn't dry or irritate my horrendously sensitive skin.

A great colour corrector. I have really bad dark circles and I use this to fade them before I apply my eye makeup. As a primer I don't find it super effective, but as a colour corrector it's pretty much everything you'd want.

does hoola make you look fake?

It really can, it depends on your skin tone and how much you use, and where. I use it as a blush-type contourer and it seems to work fine, but I deliberately use very little. You definitely don't need a lot of it, especially if you're fair.

Does Eye Bright go inside the lash line or outside?

The instructions say to put a little on the inner and out corners of the eye which sounds like "outside" the lash line, but one of the comments talks about putting it on her tear duct, which would be "inside" the lash line. I love the idea of brightening up my eyes, but I'd rather know what to do before I purchase the product and waste it by not getting results because I didn't use it correctly. Thanks!
For my own part, I put mine along the lash line, following the line of the tear duct, rather than actually on the water line, if that makes sense. I also swipe a little along my "outer" bottom lash line if I'm not wearing eyeliner.

So, simply put, outside!
