When I first started using this, I loved it! But like one of the users said below, it made my nails split in layers :( It was like I was peeling off a layer of my nails after I took off the polish. My nails have never split like that before I started using this, so unfortunately, I can't use it anymore. It did make my polishes go on more smoothly, and also last longer, but it's not worth my nails splitting and breaking!
I love this color and the formula! It's so nice you could seriously get away with just one coat and the application was super easy. LOVE it!
I loved this color, but the formula just didn't work out for me. I have no idea why because I tried out Gray Suede in this line and it went on beautifully! Anyways, with this color, I always have to use 3 coats to even try to make it look decent! It bubbles, streaks, and is soo goopy! I got ready two hours later, and it dented like crazy. I love the color but it really isn't worth that much time applying it, and even then didn't even look okay.
I bought this after so many youtube gurus recommended it and I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed. I'm only 20 and this concealer basically accentuates my fine lines under my eyes. It barely covers undereye dark circles until you keep putting more and more and then it looks way too cakey, and applying less really doesn't do anything. If I put it around the nose and mouth then it accentuates my pores. I kept trying to like it but it just won't work for me. But then again, I have the same problem with foundations because they all look cakey no matter the coverage. I could only get away with tinted moisturizers! So, if your skin doesn't have as many pores as I do, or fine lines then I guess it would be a good product! *edit: I have given this concealer another chance since all other concealers I've tried failed. It's a lot better than those, not the best, but better.

I don't like to wear full coverage foundation because it's way too obvious on my skin and just isn't natural-looking. Even light coverage foundation doesn't look natural so I gave up on foundations. My skin isn't bad at all but of course there are imperfections. I read the reviews on here and thought I might try this out because all I wanted was to even out my skin tone a little and also control shine without looking unnatural and I love it! The first time I tried it I put it over my sunscreen and then finished off my face with blush and my friends kept asking what I did to look so pretty! My face wasn't oily and my skin looked naturally beautiful. And I think it was like 3 bucks at Walmart? Love it! And if I feel like I need more coverage, I might just try out a tinted moisturizer and put this powder on top and I'd be good to go :)

I loved this for a daytime mascara but even in waterproof it smudged on me after a few hours! I usually only have problems with flaking mascara, not smudging. So even though I love how it looks and applies..I have to return it because it gave me raccoon eyes. I even tried to not apply any on the bottom lashes.. and no eyeliner either but it smudged. I wonder what the non-wp would have done. *shudders It really isn't worth the smudge cuz its not as easy to take off as non-wp.
I was stuck on CG lash blast for a while, but I couldn't let go that it left my eyelashes brittle and fell off. I thought I loved it, but kept looking. lol. So after reading the reviews, I decided to try this mascara on one eye, last blast on the other and the difference is amazing!! I love how 2000 cal was "perfect" and the cg was spidery, which is weird that I never noticed before. I can't rave enough about it, it's soo much better than lash blast! *UPDATE: So at the end of the day, I saw flaking.. and it was bothering my eyes at work. I guess my review right after I tried it wasn't a good idea. I'm taking off one lippie for that. And when I tried to take it off it burned my eyes.. which NEVER happens with any other mascara. Sadly won't be using this anymore. It might work for people without sensitive eyes.
