This foundation comes in really good colors and a little goes a long way. It provides good medium coverage without looking too "masky". I also liked the fact that you do not have to use powder with it. Unfortunately it seems to accentuate any dry skin you may have which is why I can only give it 3 lippies. The thick texture likewise makes application difficult and a LOT of blending is required to get it right. I will continue to experiment with this because while not a HG, it does have potential.
I love this product. The colors go on much more sheer than they look plus the ring idea is a cute concept. It's really great for going out when you don't want to carry extra stuff. The gloss does tend to wear off quickly but so do all glosses in general and with such convenient packaging you can easily reapply.
This product had a nice texture and blended well. I had no problems with breakouts or allergic reactions even though the scent was a little heavy. It's due to this heavy perfumey quality that I can only give it 4 lippies. Overall a pretty good product though.
I purchased this in Rawhide, a kind of neutral "your lips but better" color. This stays on really well without drying your lips out. The texture is not overly moist but I think that adds to the staying power. Would definitely repurchase.
One of the worst toners I have ever tried. The scent is really strong like men's cologne and it really dried my face out. Needless to say this one went back to the store.

This really dried out my skin and caused flaky patches. I like the texture but this is just too harsh a product. Might work for someone with REALLY oily skin.
I liked the smell of this product, however I did not think it did anything for my skin. It really did not even seem to moisturize as I still had dry patches immediately after putting it on. There are far superior products on the market for this price range.
This product moisturises your skin without making it look shiny or oily. The only thing I didn't like was the packaging (standard cold cream type) which forces you to dip your finger in to use the product causing contamination. In all I found this line to be comparable with more expensive brands and would definitely repurchase.
I liked the smell of this product and found it to be a good, non-irritating toner. The pump bottle was very convenient and easy to use. I found Anna Carera's products to be similar to lines like Darphin but a little cheaper. Will definitely repurchase.
A little of this product goes a long way and it really works to control oilies. I also love the lemon smell. I found this product to be similar in quality to brands like Darphin, but a little cheaper. Will definitely repurchase!
I love the rose smell of this product! It got my face clean without stripping it and did not cause breakouts. This product really seemed to be of comparable quality to brands like Darphin but sells for a little cheaper. I also liked the convenient pump bottle.
I like many of the other Darphin products so I decided to try this one. The smell was really strong, almost like men's cologne. Neither did it seem like it was really getting my face clean. My skin is combo and not super acne prone but this product appeared to contribute to giving me breakouts. Maybe this would be good for someone with really dry skin who didn't mind the smell.
This is a great concealer! It's almost undetectable! A little of this stuff goes a long way, so you only need to use a tiny bit to cover most imperfections. I haven't experienced any of the problems other users have reported with this sinking into fine lines but that could be because of the small amount of product I use. Edited: Upped my rating because I have never found another concealer quite this invisible. The container can be a little hard to open when you first get it but the product itself is excellent.
I purchased this product in Antique Gold which translated in to a beautiful, dark bronze color on the eye. I found that these last longer than other cream eyeshadows and impart a very natural look. I don't prefer the packaging as the small size and tight seal make it difficult to open, but would definitely purchase this product again.
This is natural looking lip gloss that lasts a reasonable amount of time. It didn't have any unpleasant taste and was not too sticky. The application is very sheer, so I would not recommend this for those wanting a lot of color.
