this product does extend my lashes, but it clumps. As a result, my lashes look so fake, thick and clump. It creates a mess. It's not an easy product to use. It does great job if you know how to use it. My sister likes it, but I don't. I will try again by combing my lashes before applying the mascara to see if it's any better. If it's is then I will stick w/ it because I do like the long lashes it creates.
This is a very cute portable blush. Two dabs on each of the cheeks and then blend right after will do the job for me. It looks just fine. Because it comes in a stick, I don't need to worry about overuse and most importantly, it eliminates the mess of powder blush, which sometime I can be allergic to when trying to get the excessive powder off the brush. There is a cool sensation when apply just exactly how the product advertised. I have this in Rose. I will try the peach to get a cute sunny look.
I have this in Sparkling Mauve, Sparkling Black and Praline. And I like them all. I am not good as describing color. I use Praline to get a neutral look. The color is like metallic light brown. Sparkling Black is a nice color comparing to plain Black. SB is a lighter shade of black with sparkling metal which suits me better as it does not make my eyes smaller. Sparkling Mauve when applies seem to be more watery then the other two colors. It's not as thick. At first it goes on as almost clear, but quickly turn into its color. The eyeliner also appears thinner than the other two. The color is light, sparkling and pinkish/purplish. It's like the color that little girl would love to have on their stationary, toys, and etc. I don't think Mauve is a good color description for this. To me, Mauve is like a plum color. I use SM to creat a cute look. This liquid eyeliner is very easy to use, especially for a beginner like me. It's much better than the L'Oreal Liner Intense. It has a cone felt tip. The tip becomes thinner toward the point of the tip. So it's easy to control the thickness or thinness of your eyeliner. And yes, like others have mentioned, it lasts all day. It comes in a nice silver container. For its price and quality, this is a great value especially with ccb on-going promotional offer. Even if I have to pay full price for it, i think it's still worth it.
The area around my mouth got irritated by this. It turned to itchy, red, flaky, dry patches. It took a week to recover.
I have uneven skin tone and the coverage is so little that I don't see much differences after applying. However it works great when I apply DHC Water Base Color (a very light liquid foundation) to even out my complexion first and then this, it gives a dewey glow. I don't like the idea of using a foundation with a tinted moisturizer since i would like to use the tinted moisturizer as a substitute for foundation. I will stop purchase after I find my perfect tinted moisturizer w/ spf. UPDATE: Since it is sitting around, it doesn't hurt to make use of the moisturize and SPF. I used it again alone and am more happy. This time I applied more cream to the areas that are uneven. My skin tone are more even and brighter. I also use it on my eyelid as a concealer to cover my dark lids.
I have dry skin and this product takes of my makeup effortlessly especially mascara, which is the hardest thing to take off. It is oil, but it does not leave any greases on my face

I had a lot of pimples on my forehead in the last 4 months due to lack of sleep, and I made matter worse by touching it. I tried many products to control it. Nothing works and it made my skin drier and flaky. Someone recommended PC, so I ordered it along with other PC skincare products. I use it day and night to get rid of it faster and after two weeks of use, there's a big difference. I don't have any more acne on my forehad. Woo hoo. My face is getting back to normal now, so I only use it once a day now to prevent acne. This product is not on-the-spot treatment, but it works over time.

I love everything about this but not the staying power. I bought this product after all the good reviews from here. It's gone in two hours although I am not licking my lip or eating. When I checked in the mirror, I wonder where it goes. I used MAC Lip Glass and NAR, and it did the same thing to me. I don't know if its the product or is it me the one with problems. Could it be my dry lip absorbing all the gloss?
I didn't really know the essence of Vitamin C until I came in here. After reading the description of this product from DHC, I want to give it a try primarily to treat my uneven skin tone. I use this for only a few time, but will be start using it everyday after my face is cleared from acne. I am afraid to put too much stuff on my face. I can't comment on the results of the product since I haven't been using it regularly to know. However, I love the texture of this cream. It's very light. My skin feel soft and light, non-greasy, and I am dry skin and just love this product because it's light yet give me enough moisture. Also, fast absorbing. One thing I hate is the aluminum tube, if the tube got squeezed, when you open the cap, the cream start coming out rapidly. And you try to find a place on your face or body to apply the extra cream. To make sure it won't get squeeze, I put it back in the packaging box.
Update: I've been using it twice a day for about 3-4 weeks and I see dramatic results on the color of my face when comparing to my neck. This does brightening up my skin and even out my skin tone (which I suffered from sun damge). I am starting to apply it to my neck to achieve the same color as my face.
Just like a moisturizer. Did not see what it claims to do.

I bought this product after all the raves in here and in hoping of replacing my Paula Choice Dry Toner, since I don't like to order. However, I was disappointed. It sting my face, i think due to the fragrance. I have to apply sparingly or else my face would feel heavy and sticky. This would be a good product for me if it doesn't contain any fragrance and goes on lighter.

I've been using DHC for the past 5 years to control my dryness, but now I am using Paula Choice because it works better and cheaper. After washing my face with this cleanser, my face feel smooth and moist. However, I have to use DHC Deep CLeansing OIl to get rid of my makeup especially mascara.
The strip work so well the first time I used it. I thought it was amazing, but after several uses I don't see any effects. Ocassionally, I used it in hoping that it will work like the first time. But nope. It only works for the first time. It stripped my skin as well. My nose got dry and flaky after use.
I have tried the Silver color. It lasts throughout the tday and it's something that I can wear alone w/o eyeshadow. It's so cheap for its quality. Well deserved a 5. I'll try the purple one.
