I'm the type of girl who likes things super convenient and quick. Or if I'm feeling lazy and don't want to get up and wash my face. Yeah, these are like my perfect solution. I used to use Biore face wipes to take of my makeup, but I love these so much more! They smell nice, are super soft (and a decent size too) and get everything off. My only complaint is that right after I wipe my face with these, it feels extremely greasy.. But after a while it feels great.
This stuff = LOVE. I have gross teenage, oily skin. Especially in my t-zone and chin. I have acne scars on my forehead and chin, and I am very prone to breakouts. Oh, and I have really pale skin. I have this in the lightest shade, it's perfect! I found that when I put this on with a sponge, it put WAY too much on. And it made me look orange. I now use a foundation brush, and it makes me look FLAWLESS. It evens everything out, and looks very natural. And with a foundation brush, I use so much less product. Top with powder, and it looks great. My oily spots still get oily, but they aren't oil slicks. This thing has lasted me about 6 months. The only thing I hate is that the stuff is hard to get out of the bottle. I just hold it upside down and shake it. I love love love this stuff, HG for sure!
I only bought this stuff yesterday, so I'm still not 100% sure if I really like this or not... Let's see...
Claims: Liquid perfect coverage feels incredible, Airtight compact keeps makeup fresh and mess-free, Vitamins B3, B5 and E, Oil free, Hypoallergenic, Won't Clog Pores.
Smoothing formula, with vitamins helps give you noticeably better looking, beautiful skin.
Sweep sponge applicator lightly over makeup, then your face. Control sheerness by blending and spreading.
I bought this in "Ivory" 705. The lightest shade they had.A little to dark for me. (I'm not literally white, just haven't been out in the sun too much) This looked very orange-y. But the odd thing was, it blended and didn't look that bad.
I rubbed the sponge (that came with the package) over the foundation, and patted/dabbed onto my face. The sponge felt nice and squishy. lol. It felt nice. But, I am wondering if I should use a foundation brush or triangular sponge to apply. (If YOU have used either one, PLEASE let me know!)
Afterwards, I went to tennis practice, in 80 degree weather. I was sweaty. (Ick!) This still stayed on my face, but if I wiped my forehead with a paper towel, a bit came off. Impressive. Oh, and five hours later, (even a re-application after a shower) My face feels nice and smooth. And, my forehead/chin (my oily zones) are nice and dry. VERY impressive!
I'm quite pleased with this. It didn't take that much time at all to apply. I was suprised of it's staying power. And the fact that my t-zone isn't an oil spill right now.
Edit: I had tennis again today, and this stuff is definitely not sweatproof, but which foundation is? Overall, it looks okay. Stays alot longer with powder.
***Edit - I really like this stuff. But there are a few cons.
1.The color selection SUCKS.
2. Emphasizes dry spots like crazy.
3. Makes my face look orange/dirty.
No no no no. I have no idea why I haven't moved on from this mascara. I haven't found my HG yet! I thought this would be really neat. Because, of the new brush and all. I was so wrong. The brush clumps with the mascara goo, and it clumps my lashes. I am only slightly satisfied if I apply VERY lightly and curl my lashes. I'm a little disappointed because the brush sucks, and it flops everywhere. This might work for you, but def. not for me!
Overall, this is my favorite scent out of the entire VS collection. Too bad it's limited edition. It's absolutely fabulous for summer. It's not to powdery and sickly sweet smelling like all of the other scents. The bottle is very, odd, almost to bulky and ugly for such a nice scent. I LOVE this. It is a little pricey though...
I bought this because I thought it would make my hair appear as if it weren't fading out as quickly. I found that when I used this, I barely notice a difference, and made my brown hair somewhat brassy. And this smells TERRIBLE.
I have been a victim of constantly dying my hair with semi-permanent dyes, therefore depositing color in while taking a bit out. Making it extremely brassy. I purchased this in Medium Brown, and I am so far pleased with the results. The shade of brown on my hair is very dark, and I've gotten many compliments. It also makes my hair VERY shiny and soft. My only complaint is, is that this didn't completely take the brassiness out of my hair completely. Still a good buy though. Update - After two weeks, my hair isn't as brassy as it would have been. It has gotten lighter from regular washing, but there has been literally no brass. Love it!

I bought this a few days ago and like it so far. The color is absolutely gorgeous. (Nice pink sheen. with a few hints of gold) It has a fairly thick consistency, and is a little sticky if a lot of product is applied. My only dislikes about this product are the smell. It's a decent berry-ish smell. But gets a little to fake for me. My other dislike is how sticky it is. (Well for me this is a problem, I am constantly messing with my hair, so my hair always gets stuck on my lips. And this leaves a gross residue on my hair)
I have oily skin, acne prone skin, and I have quite a bit of acne scars around my chin area. Overall this is a very good foundation with pretty good coverage, but not over zits.. I like it :] the bottle is interesting, and you have to treat the pumps like two instead of one. It's a little pricey but I think it is worth it.
I have this in Pecan, Light Golden Brown. So far I'm pleased with the results. I was suprised at the color on the box, which is quite misleading for me. My hair turned a medium brown, with a gold kind of sheen. It was very subtle though. I was suprised at how dark the color actually turned out. But I still liked it. I'm also pleased with the Conditioning treatment, it smells like coconuts. I love this product but the only downfall is that the color isn't permanent, and washes out quickly.
WOW. I bought this about two weeks ago... and I had been very dissapointed.. Now, after using it for a few days, I'm completely dry. I remember I used to just sit there, and start sweating. Now when I do that, I'm dry, and I smell nice too. I have the light and fresh scent, and to me it smells like Pantene Pro V...

I had picked this out as a birthday gift a few weeks ago. I like the color, it's a shimmery pink-ish shade. It looks good on, but not if I put on alot of it. I look like a tween trying to wear lipgloss. Ha. Anyway, the only problem that I have with this is the texture. It's kinda goopy and sticky. I just put a little on and it's fine.
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Stylist Mascara ] [DISCONTINUED]

I'm on the fence as to whether I would buy this product again. It turns out okay if your careful and know how to use it, but if you don't then thats another story. The only thing I don't like about this product is the wand. The applicator is very odd, to the point where it looks like it has no mascara on it at all, and when you go to put it on, it clumps up like crazy. Then when you try and get the excess mascara off with the wand, it just clumps it up more. I'm pleased with this product so far. But I only use it after I curl my eyelashes. It goes on better that way [for me atleast.]

I love this product! I use some on my cheeks, put I prefer using this on my eyes. Never on my lips. It's a light bronze, pink-ish, color. It is really a pretty color! I don't use alot on my lids, so I don't have a problem with it creasing. It dries nicely, to a powdery finish. I wish they would make this in more colors, like green or blue [for the eyes] Overall, this is a good product for the price.

I'm not sure if I would actually use this again. I found it in my mom's makeup bag. And I figured I'd give liquid eyeliner a shot. First time I tried this, I blinked and had a huge black line running down my eyeball. After I got the hang of it, it works okay. I guess. This isn't the worst liquid eyeliner, but I'm sure there are better.
