I know that it's a cheap kit, but the magnifying lense is sub-par and the powder doesn't stick to the fingerprints (tried multiple types of surfaces). It was really a waste of $10

This is just a package with a brush, tape squares, fingerprint pages, cornstarch and instructions. You can see the "fingerprint" shape with the cornstarch but when you try to pick it up with the tape and put it on the sheet it will be either blank or white cornstarch dots. We weren't able to see any...see moreof the reviewer's review
