I used to have pretty bad acne. this only made it worse, wayyyy too harsh, and is awful. If your suffering from mild-sevre acne I do NOT recommend this crap! Go for a water based gentle, non fragrance cleanser.

I used to have pretty bad acne, I then discovered a life saving product called Benzyl Peroxide...off topic. Anywho, I used to use my neutrogena pink grapefruit wash religiously... little did I know that, that was only adding to my issue. The thing people (including myself) don't know is that if you have acne you MUST use a facial cleanser that has no medication, nothing. Just a water based gentle cleanser, then you can use a "treatment" to cure your problems. So this cleanser is PERFECT. Gentle, fresh, and cured me. Love love love love it!
Love this lipliner. Gives a great nudey pink lip, looks great on med. olive complected skin tones.

HG mascara! Literally, this mascara gives my lashes the Kim K look, without falsies. The formula is a bit drier then others which I just adore because it holds a curl! Completely recommend. I used to buy makeup forever, mac, bareminerals, benefit, urban decay, and after all the $$$ this is the winner, and its only $5. <3
This is my holy grail concealer! LOVE love love! I am very into the whole "bright eye" Kim Kardashian undereye look. This does the trick! Its "full coverage" without being heavy or cakey. I am olive complected medium skintone w/ yellow undertones, and to get the look I use the concealer in NC20 because it has yellow properties which really brightens the undereye, and covers any bags/darkness. LOVE this stuff and with continue to buy forever. It has also lasted me months without making a dent. Completely worth it!
While I absolutely love and adore this product for summer, it just isn't worth $26.00. Luckily, I had bought mine when I received a 20% off coupon at Ulta. So I ended up only paying about $20.00 (still cuttin' it close). I do have a medium skin tone, with yellow/olive undertones, and am only able to pull off this product in the summer with a bit of a tan. With that being said I don't recommend this to anyone with a light/fair complexion because it is golden and will show up very obvious if you're using as a cheekbone highlight. Other than that I have only great things to say about this! I won't be repurchasing because honestly, I don't think that I will ever run out of it, so much product! So it may be worth the $26.00 you're forking out. It gives a wonderful golden/tan glow-perfect for summer! I get compliments when wearing this a lot, because it looks like a "glow from within". Originally I was planning on getting high beam, but being that I am olive complected it looked very fake and unnatural. So I love this product! :)
I originally was interested because I had heard that Kim K used this, and being that I am about her skin tone, with dark features I thought I might like it. I tried peaches first because I really love that peachy glow on olive skin tones..but peaches looked awful. So I later bought gingerly and oh my gosh I am in love. I can't explain the glow or color this gives. It is a tan, yet bronzed peach, that just makes any tan/olive complexions exotic and fresh back from Bora Bora. Love it! I will continue to repurchase forever. I completely recommend to buy if you are olive/yellow complected!
