This stuff really made my skin look perfect, but you have to be careful not to apply too much or else it will fall into fine lines (I'm only 21 and I don't have wrinkles..I'm talking like natural like smile lines). Overall, I'm very satisfied. I don't like to look like I'm wearing makeup, and I don't like the feel off anything heavy on my face. But, like the commercials promised, it feels like your own skin. Very nice. UPDATE: I still like this, but it has the potential to make me oily into the day. I prefer pur minerals.
This product didn't really enlarge my lips, but it did make them appear larger, if that makes sense (because it's such an intense gloss). It made my mouth a naturally flushed pink color, which I liked, and it stayed on for quite a long time. After it wore off though, my lips seemed dry. Also, if you have long hair, tie it back because it is incredibly annoying how it will stay stuck to your mouth with this gloss on!
I bought this after reading the review in Allure and it being called a "skin saver." I'd have to say it is quite a nice product. I've been using it now for about two months, and my skin is very soft. And believe it or not, unlike everyone else, I really don't mind the smell! It does what it says it does--cleans out impurities, so be prepared for those impurities to rise to the surface. But don't give up! Keep using it and you'll see good results :) UPDATE: I have fabulous skin now, and it has been accomplished without this product! Actually, it got accomplished with much cheaper ones that probably added up equal the price fo this. Alpha Hydrox cleanser, Makeup Artists Choice Gly-Luronic Serum, French Green Clay Mask 1 x week, and Acne.org BP teatment.

If I had to pick one product that is the key ingredient in making my skin look flawless, this is it. It truly covers any red blemishes I have. I've been using it constantly for the last 4 years. The only down side is that sometimes the texture can make your skin look flaky if your skin is dry...and apply sparingly! You don't want a giant green dot on your face! I've gotten the ebst results whe I've used a concealer brush to apply it.
I really like this product because immediately after I use it, I see a difference. My skin feels smoother, looks clearer and brighter, and any blemishes are less noticeable. Also, the fragrance is very relaxing. It is, however, a bit pricey. It lasts for a good while though. It can also make your skin slightly dry, which is why I wouldn't use it more than once a week. Overall, I'm satisfied.

I am a big, big mascara junkie, and I can honestly say that nothing has worked like this stuff! I've bought the expensive brands, the primer/mascara combos--everything. This is by far the best I have ever used because it gives me HUGE lashes. My lashes are fairly long, but thin and straight. Try it! It's the best $3.50 you'll ever spend!
