I'm in love with Some Kind-a Gorgeous. It has super cute packaging in the way it looks like a record, but I got the mini verison and it runs out fast and it's hard to get my foundation brush in the product. Other than that, this is the star of my makeup bag. I have fair skin, but I went with medium thinking light was too light (probably better for asian skin). I was right, it's just half a shade darker, so it gives me a tad of a tan :D. I reccomend medium for pale girls, because it looks dark in the packaging but appears lighter on skin. It goes on smooth and you can use fingers OR brush! You can also mix w/ highlighter like Girl Meets Pearl. I like how it's a cross between powder and liquid, and doesn't give too much coverage for mid-day touch-ups. Love it!
Loved that it's easy to apply, a multitasker, great for touchups, perfectly paired with highlighters, lovable!, perfect

I've learned there's a difference between shiny and glowing. Shiny is when your skin is oily and tricks off the light harshly (and it doesn't look so pretty!). Then there's glowing, which is what Girl Meets Pearl gives my skin. Glowing is when your skin has a subtle but noticeable lit-from-within look. I absolutely love and recommend this product 100%. I love patting it on my cheekbones out towards my temples, or dotting it all over then blending it in with Some Kind-a Gorgeous! It smells so delicious too (it smells the same as "That Gal"). I will definitely buy again, even though this is the only highlighter I've ever used. I'm too happy with this to try anything else!!
Loved that it's nice smelling, champagny, luminous, easy to apply, pretty!!, good for combos

After just one use, my skin was smoother! After a week, I noticed reduction in pore size. After 10 days, I noticed less pores. After two weeks, My skin was drop-dead PERFECT!! My face hasn't seen a breakout since I bought this a few months ago. I like that it removes makeup too, that's a timesaver (but to everyone saying its hard to use on your eyes, read the instructions. It says in a few different places on the packaging, bottle, and intructions to avoid eye area. you need to use remover for that). It also smells really fresh and clean. And theres been a few times I accidentally got it on my lips and it tastes like candy! haha. Now excuse my, while I go rub my face because it's so smooth.
Loved that it's good smelling (and tasting?), instant-working, cutely packaged, not overpriced

I am slightly embarrassed to say this is my first eyeliner I've ever bought. I bought this at Ulta and continued shopping. Towards the end of my mall shopping, I was hanging out on a bench waiting for my brother to finish shopping when I figured I'd walk around Ulta some more (it IS my favorite place ever..). While shopping I realized the liner I bought was in Charcoal, not black like I'd intended. The checkout counter was so backed up, I could never get the chance to trade in. I just shrugged it off and I'M SO GLAD I DID! The gray color compliments my green eyes perfectly and gorgeously. Plus, gray is a great color for school; it's less dramatic than black for everyday wear. The liner lasts all day and doesn't stray (even without Stay Don't Stray under it!!) at all. I usually have a very hard time (when i test eyeliners) to get color to show. I normally had to grind the pencil down so hard it would poke my eye out if I used it. This liner shows up with the tiniest tickle!! However, the spongetip isn;t very comfortable and I find that it more erases rather than smudges (so i use it as an eraser for my mistakes :D). Overall, I want every color available I love it so much!!! They should make a plum one for green eyes...
Loved that it's so smooth and easy to apply, nice long pencil so itll last for ages, compliments eye color, great price for quality, has sponge tip!

I just turned 13 (yesterday!! haha), and for Christmas I got this kit and it was my first makeup. I love it! It has all the essentials. And I like that it has a lesson for the makeup-impaired:)
Girl Meets Pearl-- I LOVE THIS!! It's one of those things I need every day. It makes my face glow so nicely.
Eyeshadow Palette--Every shadow is great. They all have a matte finish, which I like. My favorite has to be the purple one, Posh Amythest. It's just a subtle touch of color.
Blush-- It's a nice color, but doesn't last very long it seems.
Mascara--Now THIS is my necessity. If I don't have time for full makeup, this is the first thing I put on. I have really short eyelashes, but this makes them look volumized and longer!
Lip Gloss--This is why I didn't give 5 stars...nice color, but smells/tastes awful and applies very unevenly
Loved that it's handy-dandy!, contains everything you need, includes lesson, great for touch-ups

This mascara is phenomenal. Its lengthy bristles seperate your lashes just so they're given volume, but no spider lashes! Really packs a punch. If I don't have time to do my full makeup in the morning, this is my first priority.
Loved that it's Volumizing, sexyyyy, holding, that extra oomph

I'm really sorry, I LOVE Benefit more that any other brand in the world, but this lip gloss did not work for me. I got a thing of Life On The A List in my "I'm Glam...Therefore I Am" kit, and it was the only thing in that kit I didn't like. First off, it was way too shimmery, but didn't go on evenly at ALL, so you could see every part where it missed a spot. Also, it showed through too much, not enough color in it to make very much of a show. And it smelled and tasted awful

Ivy32100's Questions
 

Nude color?

Are any of these (or full finish lipstick) a more natural, nude color? They all look pretty harsh and I want a light color.

Which lip/cheek stain would be best for me?

Out of Benetint, Posietint, and ChaChaTint, which would be best for me? I'm fair-skinned, with dark brown hair and green eyes. I wear purple eyeshadow, if that helps. I also have pretty full lips in case that helps too. I'm thinking Posietint, but if anyone says otherwise I'll think twice!! Thank you!

Does it need sharpening?

I wasn't sure if this eyeliner needs sharpening with the sharpener or if it is automatic?

Which to choose and how to use? High beam,watts up,one hot minute or girl meets pearl?

hi, out of craziness, I got all of the above before I even know how to use them!!
I'm have fair Asian combi skin, but recently tend to be drier than oily which I used to be...
Can anyone tell me which is better and how to really apply them?
As I have benetint, that gal and dandelion too which I'm currently using! Am totally lost! Please help!
GIRL MEETS PEARL! Girl meets pearl works very similarly to the others, but you can use it mixed with Some Kind-a Gorgeous or The Porefessional or Hoola or, really, any number of things. Girl Meets Pearl is the ultimate multi-tasker

I really interested this foundation but i don't know which color fit with me

I'm asian have tan skin but i think No 3 too dark for me which number fit with asian ?
Medium (No. 2) is good. Remember, the colors are really dense in the packaging, they'll appear a shade or two lighter on your skin! :)

What other products can go with this to achieve that perfect natural look?

also, can i use this product with porefessional, that gal, and girl meets pearl all at the same time?
I use it over That Gal, mixed in with Girl Meets Pearl (Like Steph showed us in her video) and it's great. I don't have the Porefessional but I imagine it would pair up just fine. Some Kind-a Gorgeous goes with a LOT of other products (Try putting Watt's up over this for a dewy look!!) Also, if you use a Medium color SKG, apply a TON of benetint then SKG over it for a lit-from-within glow

is it good for dry skin

Hi i am wondering if this foundation is good for dry skin because i just got this foundation two days ago i think it works pretty good because i got it tried on by person that works there but i just wanted to hear other opinions from people that have tried this product
If your prime with That Gal (there's a kit that just has skg and that gal), It will glide over dry patches easier. I have dry skin some places, oily skin others, and SKG goes over very evenly, you won't be able to identify where your flaws are!!

I have used this product for years, however, can't recal if I am lite or medium ... does it acutally say on the old package? I can't seem to find it.

you can tell by the background shade of the cover of the pot. Light is kind of pink-peachy, medium is a little more brown

Do you have to wait for this product to dry before applying eye-shadow and concealer?

I'm very impatient, especially when it comes to makeup because it's the last thing I do in the morning. I always just put on eyeshadow immediately and it's fine. Stay Don't Stray dries very quickly anyways. But if you have time to wait a minute, I probably would. It all depends on what kind of time you have (it works fine both ways!)

Best colour to match posietint?

I want to add some shine to my posietint but I'm not sure what colour would work best. I have pale skin, blue eyes and blonde hair if that helps!
Any of the more bold pink shades... Life On The A List is a lot more light and pearly than the website shows, trust me
