This does so much more for my blue-green eyes than any bown/taupe does. Although I have & like MAC Satin Taupe and Style Snob, this is more flattering. I use it in the crease and it gives my lids a little warmth and brightens but yet with the depth I want.
It's not a bad color and may be HG for some skin tones, I have to mix it with Shroom to get a color I can use. It's too peach on for me.
This will do what any other mascara will, make your lashes darker and perhaps a little thicker. Beyond that I didn't see anything special and for the price it isn't worth it to me. I don't like how the tubes come off in globs either. It's going back.
The product itself works well, it's a little wet and takes longer to dry than most of the other primers like Stila prime pot or UDPP. Once it dries it is thin and pale but with makeup over it it looks great. I don't like the packaging at all but the product is worth purchasing.

The only thing that would make this better is a blacker black. Even the very black isn't black enough for me, other than that it's one the best mascara's ever. The brush gets every little lash.
It's perfect. The end.
Awful stuff. I wanted to like it but it was cakey for me also and they don't make a color close enough to my skin tone. Will never repurchase. I took it back to Sephora, just bought the $10 size to try it.
I used to use this all the time. I keep one in my drawer at work and put it on a few times a day. I rarely have chapped lips. I got a sample of Fresh Sugar lip treatment and love it. I find I'm reaching for it more oftern so I'm not using this as much but you can't beat it for the price.
I have lots of fine hair. This makes my hair feel soft, light and fluffy. Love it!

This stuff is weird. It's gritty. It comes out of the tube as white and when you rub it together the grittiness dissolves and you can see the color. It's also thinner than most BB Creams. I don't need a lot of coverage, so I don't mind that part, but it's just too weird for me to repurchase it. It reminds me of those lipsticks that are supposed to turn the right color pink for each person. Thanks, I'll pass.

Maybe i don't know how to use this..I haven't tried Wen yet, so I can't compare it and don't know yet if this kind of product is for me. I did find it hard to rinse out and kind of gummy.
I really wanted to like this. The packaging is good and it is easy to apply. Too easy, it's a little oily and doesn't hold nearly as well as UDPP. It might be better than not using a primer, but not by much, especially in the corners. Will not repurchase.
I just don't like looking as yucky as you do when you use this, and I know it's a classic, but I prefer the English Mud one that Queen Helene also makes that goes on a light tan. Much more attractive and doesn't seem quite as drying but is still just as effective.

I've switched to BB Creams, BUT, for a little more coverage on the occasion when I need it and for the price, this stuff is great. Not as shiny and better coverage than the usual tinted moisturizer but not heavy like a typical foundation.
Thanks ladies for the tips on this product. I bought it yesterday because of the reviews and love it. Great scent and great finish texture, moisturized but not greasy. Tried it last night and didn't wake up with a greasy face - love that! Bet it will be great under makeup.
