I did a monthly make-up club back in the 90's that sold the smaller full sized products. It was kinda hit or miss on getting something you like or would work for me at all. More often than not, it was only one or two things I liked. There was no obligation to buy any set. But if you wanted one, you had to pay for the whole thing. It was a good value for what you got though. It was supposedly high end cosmetics, but I could never find the stuff anywhere. So if I did find something I liked I had to hunt down the order slip for that company that came with the shipment. I found the color choices were extremely limited.
I don't regret it. It was good for starting out. I got my basics for relatively cheap. But after a while it got a little repetitive and the amount of stuff I couldn't use piling up in my room got old.
