AMAZING product. I got matched with the shade Alaska and it covers my redness and unevenness very well without looking fake. I have acne prone skin and I get oily throughout the day. Also, I noticed after I started using this product, my skin looks better than ever. I am NC 20 and I use Alaska. I have sensitive, clog prone skin but this is gorgeous on me. When I wear this it just looks like I was blessed with beautiful skin. ALSO, when I remove this at night I can see the product on the cotton pad, meaning my skin didn't drink this up. Please vote up if this was helpful to you!
I am a NC20 asian girl. I have never fallen in love with a blush because blushes usually make me look clown-ish. I LOVE dandelion. I get a very pretty flush that looks very natural and that comes from a person who cannot work blushes without looking pink, or making mycheek looks rounder. I initially was not thinking about this blush after reading so many reviews on how it does not show up on people who are fair, this is not true. I am NC20 and it shows up very well. Blushes I tried and failed on me: -Benefit Coralista: Too pink, too bright -Benefit Hervana: Too candy pink, doesnt show up that much unless I wear about 3 layers of it, and when I do it is very bright -Benefit Sugarbomb: Too cool pink -MAC fleur power: too pink -MAC dollymix: too pink -Benefit Benetint: too red -Dior Blushes: too much shimmer not enough pigmentation
I LOVE THIS!!!Lately I'm in to bronzers for contouring. I am NC20, Asian girl and this is perfect to get defined cheekbones! :) It is long-wearing..all nars products are AMAZING!

I am NC 20, fair asian girl with dark brown eyes. I LOVE this palette. I tried out the colors in the store and they were very pigmented on my hand and the colors looked really wearable for everyday to brighten up the eyes and draw attention to my dark eyes. Well they do in a very natural way, I just look so much more awake :) I saw the video on HSN and the before and afters are pretty amazing, they really do make a difference! I look so much more illuminated. The eye bright is AMAZING for brightening the inner corners too! :) I can imagine that this palette would make darker skin tones (of NC 30 or darker) a bit ashy looking so it is not recommended (IN MY opinion only!) I could be very wrong.
I initially gave a 5 star review...had to change it. I am NC20, Asian girl, and...it doesnt show up. Coralista is much better and i LOVE it.

I LOVE THIS SUNSCREEN!! IT DOUBLES AS A MAKEUP PRIMER! I used to use silicone primers but they make my skin break out like crazy and my skin hates it. This is great- it is very light, fluidy, and compatible with most foundations! It doesnt make me white at all (Unlike the HOURGLASS VEIL PRIMER)

SO FAR, I LOVE THIS SHAMPOO!! My hair type: Oily on the scalp, dry dry on the ends because of years of bleaching and coloring!! (I stopped coloring/bleaching btw, and the new growth is beautiful!) Fine hair like Jennifer Anistons. :) So I was battling my problem with oily scalp and dry ends and I saw the commercials and thought...This must be fake. I went to Sephora and bought it anyway because I really wanted to try it. I dispense it on to my palm and my first thought: This is going to make my hair SUPER greasy and SUPER limp, I was so dissappointed.... But I went ahead and followed the instructions, massaged vigorously and rinsed off. After I rinsed off I was still skeptical..I thought my hair is going to look horrible...then when I started drying my hair is when I started seeing SHINY healthy looking hair, I couldn't believe it. My hair is So soft to the touch it feels like silk. Plus it smells great and it is clarifying! I am definitely a convert to natural products, as well as never coloring my hair, you will see a great change hopefully!

I have Asian, sparse, thin, short lashes stick straight..I dont know why Asian girls are cursed with such bad eyelashes.. I've only used this for one week and my lashes are a lot prettier alreay. IT holds a curl now!
FYI: My skin: NC20, asian, easily congested, and sensitive. I bought this because my face (to be specific, cheeks) can turn red easily (Weather, alcohol) and I was envious of girls whose face color matched their body. Anyway, I tried the GREEN (adjust) not believing that it can even out my skin, and it did - not only did it help even out my skin color, but my pores were minimized, and gave me angelic dewiness....I felt like I wasn't looking at my own skin in the mirror! I love how my skin looks with this on, so much better than without makeup. Any foundation you put on goes so much smoother. Now I can't wait to use the original and see how I do with it! Will continue to use.

I previously gave 5 stars because it did give me a dewy look.......however.... it broke me out in CYSTIC acne. I meant not one pimple, but MANY pimples that hurt to the touch came up after using this. In the garbage.

I have sensitive, clog prone skin and I have a bit of redness in my face + pores issue! I tried this primer and the first time I thought it looked good, but then the second third fourth time I tried it I realized it was making me look UNUSUALLY Pale!!!! Like all the color from my skin was gone! I have NC20 ish, asian skin, pale but I still DO have color naturally. This made it worse and I felt like I hadto really put on a lot of blush. IT did minimize pores but I HATE the whitish cast. Used less, still had the same effect. now i dont even use a primer. EDIT: I tried using less, and it turns out that it was ONLY my imagination about this white cast. Back to 5 stars!!!

I love love love this product. I have the sensitive, clog prone kind of skin that is so hard to deal with. Meaning I CANNOT use anything that foams, no matter how mild it is advertised, it just strips off my skin. Even tap water strips off my skin making it feel dry and tight! Awful. But this water is actually very soothing on my sensitive skin, and it tones at the same time making my pores look smaller! I dont even need water to rinse it off. Just put on a cotton pad and wipe makeup away. It is EXTREMELY gentle, yet it takes everything off and I am left with a glow that we all want. This deserves 5 stars because it takes care of my skin.
LOVE!! This is almost a dupe of BLUSHBABY, except Blush All Day from Office Hours collection is a little bit more rosey and not as sheer! The name is right, it's a color like I am blushing, just a healthy, fresh look! Amazing for everyday, and the fact that it is pro-long wear means no need to reapply. I'm surprised there is no review for this yet! I love the texture too. This is definitely the color that goes with any look!
Sometimes I feel I have been cursed with bad skin - Large pores, acne prone, and acne scar prone. So I went to Sephora and asked the lovely lady working there a good foundation that looks natural and she recommended me this one. Why I love this foundation: 1) It looks just like skin!! 2) Feels INCREDIBLY hydrating, but waterproof and oil free! 3) It doesn't LOOK like makeup at all- It looks like HEALTHY skin 4) Lots of color to choose from! 5) The coverage is AMAZING. I have bad skin but I use ONE pump and it makes ALL the difference to my skin 6) Doesn't get cakey throughout the day 7) Doesn't SETTLE into pores (A BIG problem I have with makeup) Love!!
