I like the color, but the lipglass is SOOOO sticky! ugh!

This is the best balm I've ever tried!!! Even when I wipe it off before I eat, my lips are still moisturized an hour later!!!
Actually i liked this stuff a lot. I'd purchase again, but the price is steep.
Treatments -Laura Mercier - Illuminating Brightener

For $72 it moisturizes but it does brighten at all. Never again.
Yes, this stuff is great, but because of the price, and that there ARE other products that work just as well, if not better, it gets 4 lippies from me. ETA: I now use L'Oreal Pore Minimizing serum and the texture and result closely matches the results from Idealist.
Toners -The Body Shop - Moisture White Toning Essence

I knew there'd be trouble whan i saw that it had alcohol, but i red theis to work. It dried out my oily skin-in a bad way, and didn't even brighten it.

Oily skin ladies: STEER CLEAR from this stuff. You face feels greasy almost immediately after application!
Cleansers -The Body Shop - Moisture White Cleansing Powder

Liked it at first, but got old after a while. never saw enough results to repurchase it.
I have a tan Latina-like complexion, and I have dark, dark brown eyes. This is a great shadow duo for anyone with brown eyes and olive or tan skin!!!! It really make brown eyes pop!!
I love this mask!! If only it were cheaper...
Skincare - Face -Beauty Without Cruelty - SPF 15 Daily Facial Lotion

I wanted this to work since a woman like me who has oily skin, it's often a fine line in finding sunscreens that won't break me out. Mission:Failed
Worst.cleanser.ever. I have oily skin, and even this stuff dried it out. The only good thing is that it does lather very well, half and pea-size would get you by.
I used this after my my cleansing oil, and all I can say is WOW!!! I have oily skin, but this cleanser actually works for me.
Works great, and worth the cost(if you can afford to keep it in stock in your beauty stash...)
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Charmzone Skin Milk Essence

That's a "yes" with an exclaimation mark!!!! I've just gotten into Japanese and Korean skincare products like Charmzone, Laniege, and Kose. This essence is perhaps the best one I've tried for my oily skin. It's never been this soft, and moisturized while @ the same time not oily. It's amazing!!!!
