i looooooooooooooove this. finally a shade that matches my skin perfectly and does what its supposed to. All of the skin on my body is very olive toned, with my face being the exception. still the outer edges of my face are yellow, but everything in the center is sooo pink, it doesnt look like the same person compared to the skin on the body (and i do not have roseacea.) the shade i have (golden glow) is very yellow and with good coverage to cover the pink areas and even out with the yellow areas. 90% of foundations, liquid or mineral or powder looked orange on me. this doesnt. very expensive, but totally worth it.
Ugh.. i so badly want to use this but just cannot get over the smell. It is a heavily perfumed, 90-year-old-grandmother smell. The feeling of this spray is not that bad in the hair and i like how it sprays an even mist, but the smell just does it. I will be returning this product as soon as i can.
Very good mascara. Finally a non waterproof formula that actually keeps the curl in my lashes! I got tired of always having to wear waterproof mascaras, because they are the only ones that hold my curl after i curl my eyelashes. But they are a pain in the butt to remove and i noticed my eyelashes getting weaker and spraser over time. I used up my covergirl mascara in the orange bottle and got a rimmel one (waterproof) and this did nothing. That was when i got tired of this and went to look up some reviews of good non waterproof mascara and decided to give this a try. and it is pretty good. it holds the curl and gives nice length. what sucks is that you have to put 54654665 coats on to get some ok volume..... maybe ill try another good mascara and layer it on top of this for volume.
This is an ok concealer. It does a good job for under the eyes because of the light reflectors it has, but it can be a bit drying. It is pretty expensive.. maybe a little too expensive for its quality but I find it better than most drugstore concealers out there. The packaging is ok but I can only imagine how little product there is in the package, and it probably wont last very long. I *might* repurchase, unless I find something better.

Pretty good product. My hair felt very clean and refreshed after this, and light and fluffy. I like that its SLS free. I wish that the Tj Maxx i bought this at had the conditioner as well. Ill most likely end up buying the conditioner if I find it too.
I started using this after finishing the bottle of Phyto Organics. The Phyto Organics felt like just like plain water on my hair. Really no conditioning effect from that. This Y serum turned out to be pretty good. After reading these reviews, it seems like that it might have been too heavy for alot of people here. I find it just perfect for myself, It conditions very well, after a couple of uses my hair has started looking better, softer and fluffier like i like it. (my hair is very heavy and dry and overprocessed) I use a couple more products on my hair, so I use the Y serum first, and that way the rest of the products take away the scent. But i blowdry my hair most of the time and I find that this takes away the smell to begin with. IMO the smell is not that bad, and on me it doesnt seem to last that long. I use this product on wet hair only, and so far so good.
One word: horrible. Ok im 20 and Im starting to have somewhat of an expression line under my eye, and this thing being 'line smoothing' i thought i would give it a shot after reading some good reviews in a magazine. Umm.... no. I dont know why they would call it line smoothing. Its more like inline CAKING. This made me look about 10 years older. Idk. might be good for covering other imperfections but it is definitely NOT line smoothing.
Horrible horrible stuff, felt like wax on my skin even after washing it off. It is supposed to be a deep cleansing cream but it might as well be called clogging cream cuz thats what it does. Horrible. Im glad i got a sample jar only.
The clean of harsh, oil free salicylic acid cleansers, without the dryness. Wonderful product, will definitely buy again. I never thought that an oil cleanser can give such a clean feeling. I used it on dry skin, and washed it off. I will try next time with a washcloth. I have many blackheads, and ive stumbled upon an oil cleanser, which is crazy because ive heard to avoid all things 'oil' if you have acne prone/blackhead prone skin. I dont wear heavy makeup, just mostly minerals and blush that is not mineral based here and there. This also removes mascara quite nicely.

This stuff is very good, gives an awesome shine and it is not drying or sticky like most other shine sprays and it doesnt contain drying alcohol. I havent used it on wet hair yet, but we will see. It feels amazing on dry hair. Hair is soft, shiny and not heavy or greasy from this stuff. EDIT: I ended up returning this. I didnt like that I was not able to use it as heat protection. maybe i'll purchase it some other time.. it is good for shine but just not something im looking for right now since i have a ton of other shine products.
Ugh. This product sucks. Even a tiny amount on damp hair made my hair feel very heavy after blowdrying. I have very dry, (naturally straight) thick permed and color treated hair that is very processed and therefore probably porous to any product I use, and this stuff just didnt not help. My curls were gone and my hair was heavy and flat after this. I promise i used only a dime sized amount and combed it well through mid hair to ends. Waste of money.

This product is ok. Just ok. nothing to it. It felt pretty much like water in my hair. It smells great but it isn't very hydrating. I have heavy and thick (naturally straight) but permed and color treated hair. It is very dry from all the processing but it also tends to be very heavy, so I cannot use most serums, especially on dry hair, so i have to resort to sprays and mists. I ended up using the entire bottle in about two weeks. Maybe its because my hair is too dry and this isnt potent enough, but overall its a nice refreshment and the smell is good and it might work better for someone with finer/less damaged hair.
