Unfortunately was way too greasy and never really absorbed into my skin...even using clarisonic brush beforehand. I think if you are going to go the oil route, go with olive oil!
My favorite scent ever! And I get it at Nordstrom Rack where it is very affordable! That way I don't feel bad using tons of it. It replaces mists for me! Ppl always ask me what I am wearing! Will continue to buy this forever and ever. Very feminine and fun. Every boyfriend I have had goes crazy for it too! And the packaging is perfection! I have like 5 bottles on my vanity...theyre too cute to take away!
This makes me smell like a princess! I love wearing it though I tend to go overboard with it! It is definitely pricey and I wish I could find something similar without the price tag. This probably isn't the scent for everyone, but its flirty and girly and perfect for someone like me! I wish the bottle was as fun as the scent though!
Works great but your skin can become resistant if you use it too often. If I have a pimple this usually does the trick! I put a lot on overnight and its always reduced by the morning. I've never noticed anything but good results, and I used to get cysts once or twice a month! I like to get the aspirin from target bc it is all white so you dont have to deal with a coating coming off!
After being a loyal fan for years, I recently stopped using this. When I started using it around 2004 it was absolutely amazing! It covered so well and was alla round amazing. I have noticed that the integrity and quality of the minerals has been slowly, slowly deteriorating. It feels mass produced now and the products dont feel as good. I wish I would have stocked up years ago when I loved it...I don't know ifthey changed manufacturers since theyre so big now, but that is what it feels like. the one thing I do love though is warmth! I use it sparingly over Nars Sheer Glow or Laura Mercier minerals and it gives such a nice glow. I even use it on my neck and chest area to give me some color on special days! :P I have been using the same one for almost 2 years and am running out, though Im scared to repurchase bc I dont want the quality to be different!
After hearing so much hype I was so excited when I finally bought this. I was really disappointed though. The brush immediately feels clumpy and you want the brush to feel more dainty so each lash can get attention! I just really didn't like this! I prefer Lancome definicils....the first mascara my mom gave me and I always go back to it!
Used in moderation it's perfect! Matches my skin when its pale or tan, which is amazing. Makes me look like a little angel with rosy cheeks! Love it.
Love this but cant use it too much or it drys out my skin. tightens pores, refines skin, is pretty much amazing. just make sue you moisturize!

I love this but for what it is its a bit expensive. It does just what it promises though and your eyeshadow doesnt move! I wear more on the bottom than top though, so this isnt sthing I really need. But overall if you wear a lot of eyeshadow then you need this!

I honestly think this is just a larger version of the toothbrush with a bigger price tag! I have had mine for a year and it is fun to use and helps get dirty skin clean if you haven't washed it in days (tho I don't really know anyone who does that!)...I just don't feel like this is very necessary. It you use an exfoliator well you will feel just as clean, imo. It doesn't refine my skin, it just exfoliates it well so products are absorbed better. But if you're using an exfoliator it does the same thing. Try an electric toothbrush if the price tag is scarring you. I am positive it does the same exact thing in mini form :)
Works great on evening out skin tone and texture. covers pores immaculately, which i found so surprising bc usually i have to wear primer! got in in ceylan, which matches my light skin great but will want to go a shade or 2 darker in the summer. I recommend not just testing it on your hand bc when i did i thought that ceylan was going to be way too dark but it ended up great. It doesn't dry out my dry skin either! This is the first time I have used liquid makeup (I was a BE superfan for many years until recently I could tell the quality of the product had cheapened!) but I am extremely happy with it and the coverage. This with a little bit of Laura Mercier mineral powder and a hint of orgasm is the perfect winter skin look!
