My sister loves this line for it's price and likeness to MAC. Apparently they have the same parent company. Anyone else try the line? It is sold exclusively at Kohl's. I checked out some of her stuff and the colors were very nice!

Boy!! Their prices are not that much cheaper than MAC. The lipgloss and lipsticks are $10 and MAC's are $14 and Flirt's marcara's are $10 and MAC's are mostly $11. Drugstore brands are getting pricey these days!

I really like the make-up at Kohls' - prices are reasonable, adequate testers, and no snotty SA's when you need to do a return (they don't work on commission so they don't care if you use & return).

I have a HG eyeshadow & HG lipstick from there as well as several eyeliners.

I also use their "all right mattifying gel" as a primer and just purchased their "all calm gentle sunscreen" spf 25 - chemical free.

Flirt is a really nice line. I especially love their "I'M WHIPPED™ EYESHADOW MOUSSE". I like it a lot better as an eye shadow base than mac's paints. the mousse is easier to spread, and is more subtle than they look in the pot.

kohls also always seems to have a sale in one form or another for their cosmetics.

Does anyone know how the Flirt eyeshadows compare to MAC eyeshadows? I like MAC eyeshadows because of the color selection, vibrancy, and also lasting power, so I'm interested to hear how Flirt stacks up.

Flirt (and American Girl, which is Kohl's other make-up brand) shadows wears just as well as Mac's.

Flirt blushes are great! pigmented and gorgeous color selection and finishes. Not to mention they are relatively cheaper.

I also like their skunk brush (it's called feather-dust-it or something). It's like a cheaper version of MAC skunk brush (mac is definitely better though). But it still works fine in applying extremely pigmented blushes.

i have got 3 blushes from Flirt:
♠ SweetSurrender
♠ Sweet Desire
♠ HeartThrob

the packing is nice and somewhat different from the other blushes packing. it also come with a brush inside the case. color and texture wise, i would say value for money. color can be picked up easily and they are rather pigment as well.

their Feather-Dust-Her blush (iirc) is say to be somewhat similar to MAC #187 blush. and i agree with sparkle that MAC's brush texture of definitely better but this flirt blush the price that you are paying, i would say its pretty decent as well.
