This is the only product that has been able to help in completely covering my dark circles! I am fair skinned with very dark undereye circles, both hereditary and from minimal sleep/long work hours. Before this product, I was using Benefit Erase Paste. It covered them a little bit, but people were constantly asking me if I was tired. Everything else would crease and settle into the fine lines under my eyes. Then when I was in Target last week, I saw this and the other eye roller by Garnier. Being the shopaholic that I am, I bought both. I don't know if it's the combination of the two or what, but I use the colorless one first, then my Hope in a Tube eye moisturizer. I save this product for last, after my foundation and eye makeup. I just lightly dab a small amount onto my under eye area and tap in out with my ring finger and it covers instantly! Definitely a keeper!
This product stinks...both literally and figuratively! This did absolutely nothing for my hair and if anything, it made it worse! I'll stick with my Stila Hair Refresher...easier to use, better scent, and gives me volume!
Gorgeous sheer color with an slight green iridescence that makes this a subtle but unique nail polish. To make it a little less sheer, I apply Essie's Fill The Gap! first to fill ridges and add a bit more natural color. Then I top it with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, followed by OPI's Drying Drops...giving me a gorgeous, quick & easy nail on the go! (I actually just did mine 5 mins ago!)
Gorgeous color! I love wearing this all over my lid with Satin Taupe in the crease...great combo! Definitely will buy a backup!
I love everything about this polish, except for the fact that it chips so quickly! I love neutral shades and this is a nice, frosty neutral. My go-to color!

Love this stuff! I have naturally wavy hair, but it's not cute wavy...it needs work! It frizzes very easily, year-round. Enter Curls Rock. My sister, who has very curly hair, uses this, so I borrowed it one day. The first time that I used it, I used way too much, so I ended up with the crunchiness that others have experienced. The second time, I decided to use less and WOW! I have medium thickness, shoulder-length hair and I used one pump...perfection! My favorite way to use this is to spray a leave-in conditioner into my hair after showering, then CHI Keratin Mist, then a tiny bit of Frizz-Ease, and then this. I scrunch it lightly into my hair with my head flipped. Then, off to bed! When I wake up, I have soft, frizz-free waves! Love it!

I love this! I use this over my Face & Body foundation. Perfect combo for summer! I just ordered Medium Deep for summer, as Medium is getting to be a little on the light side with me tanning. I will definitely buy this again!

This is one of my new faves! I'm not a big fan of vanilla or gourmand scents, but there is something about this that I love! I'm a spicy, musky, warm scent kind of girl, and this fragrance has everything but the musk. The bottle can be a little annoying at times, but it looks gorgeous sitting in my wood perfume tray! I put that I would repurchase, however I bought the 2.7 oz bottle and I rotate my perfumes daily, so it'll last me a really long time!

I was so sad when I saw the review below saying it was getting discontinued. I ran to my local one and bought the last two even though I still have an almost full one at home. (Does anyone know how long the backups will stay good for?--Message me!) I use this every night before bed, after my witch hazel toner, and I have not seen my pores so small and unclogged before! I am in love! It's also seeming to help with the creases in my forehead. I don't know what I'm going to do when this is gone. =(
Love this! I received this as a sample from Sephora. As soon as it's gone, I'm buying the full-size. I don't notice much plumping, but it really helps my liner/lipstick stay on longer. And I LOVE the smell.
On it's own, this really doesn't do much. I don't have perfect skin, but it's also not perfect. The first time I used this, I felt like I wasted my money. But when I was washing it off that night, I saw that it really was waterproof, and therefore, great for the summer. So the next day, I tried it with a tinted moisturizer first, then this, then MSF natural. All combined, it gave me a nice, not too heavy, natural look. I would buy it again, but thankfully this large bottle should last me a while!

This was one of the first blushes I ever used. First off, I hate the fact that you have to dip your fingers into. I mean, I know that's pretty much the only way they could package it, but it's unsanitary. The color payoff isn't bad, but it made my pores look larger.
Not bad, but not great. The smell is great going on, but within a couple of hours, it has that horrible self-tanner scent. Yuck! The color change is somewhat subtle, but it's easy to end up with streaks and/or splotches. I just ended up hitting the tanning beds again...horrible for the skin, but real color!
Gorgeous color! This was one of my first MAC eye shadows. I bought it along with Sketch after seeing a tutorial on YouTube. Love it! And it looks great with Sketch in the crease.
