Love this!!! I usually use Lancome waterproof eye makeup remover but I wanted to try something different (other than an oil based formula) and this stuff is awesome! It is so soothing and removes the left over traces that my cleanser leaves behind. My lashes feel softer and are less brittle also from using this! Already finished one bottle and bought another one today!
Fantastic powder!!! It really does blend on silky smooth and not cakey... I actually have used it to set liquid foundation and it is truly long lasting. The finish is natural matte. I bought it in Medium Deep and I'm usually an NC35/40. I haven't tried to use it alone as a powder foundation and I really have no intention to because I like a fuller finish. Would buy again for sure!!!
Great shade. It's sort of a raspberry teraacotta shade. Freat winter color for fair skin. 2 coats works very well.
Great foundation. Great price as well ($26 CDN). I normally wear NC 35/40 and I got this in shade 25 which match pretty well. I id find that it dried a little bit different then when it's wet but the colour worked out. Good staying power and the coverage is medium builadble. I like that it's oil free as well but still feels creamy. Very comparable to other high quality foundations!
This is a light mauvey rosey pink with superfine glitter..diamond dust is what it has in it. Very sophisticated glitter so fine that when you touch the nail it appears smooth not gritty if that makes sense. Very feminine and unique.... it is a little more expensive though... $17 Cdn. Would try other colors! and dries in a quick amount of time.
This product is just OK. Nothing special at all, only cute packaging. I bought this in shade 3 and thought it was gonna be too light but in fact it was fine because I was planning o wearing it over liquid foundation and that usually darkens any powder I put on top. I will say that this does oxidize and the color did change darker. It kept me matte for just a short time and had to retouch a few times. All i all I prefer Lancome dual finish or MAC studio fix powder.
I will say this stuff works for my combination-oily skin. I am starting to see larger pore and more imperfections and after using this for 3 weeks, have seen great clarity and a more "refined" look where my pores were. I will say that this product smells awful...but it works! Has kept my imperfections at bay and gives me a nice smooth complexion. I'm hooked and already starting to think about getting another bottle. In a brown glass bottle that you shake up.
This is a very sheer baby pink with silver glitter. Delicate and pretty but nothing special. I have a yellow tinge from wearing nail polish ALL the time and not giving my nails and room to breathe (I know, bad, right?) and I was expecting this to cover it a little, well it just enhanced the yellow. Though after 4 coats, it was starting to look a little more pink. Very girly and sweet, maybe I will try it as a top coat over a more opaque pink.
What's not to love? It's a great neutral palette, you can do natural or smoky and the shadows are very pigmented. Get it if you can...great price too!
Love this peachy warm toned pink gloss. I do find that it is pretty opaque and gives lasting color. I only retouch a few times and it is water resistant as well. Would try other colors from this brand.

Love this great mauve medium pink...doesn't last super long but gorgeous color! Not "in your face pink" but noticeable enough to show up..very classy pink and I like to use it with MAC Soar lipliner..have gone through almost a whole tube and since I have sooo many lipsticks that I switch up, this says a lot! Would buy again :)

Nice shade (golden is the one I have). Blends well and is very pigmented. Nice on an NC35 skin tone...has a slight sheen. Nothing super special.
Very unique shade. Love it...silver, olive, gold..very unique. Great for the holidays. A little expensive though. Very similar to Sephora by OPI Almost Famous..
I love this for removing my makeup and cleansing my skin at the same time. It works great to remove 99% of my waterproof liner and mascara and it is also very gentle. Leaves me feeling clean but not that squeaky clean stripped feeling. A little goes a long way so one tube lasts forever. It is kind of a slimy sort of feeling but I don't mind at all. I always go back to this cleanser!

I like this product and I use it on and off. I will try to stay faithful to it and try to finish it! So it's a balm that you emulsify with your cup hands and gently press into the skin (works the best for me anyway). It's great for combo/oily skin because it purifies. Has caused me to break out just a little on my chin, but I'm asumming that it is just purging everything out. I wake up with glowing skin that's for sure. A little bit goes a long way. And for you oily skinned ladies- don't be scared! Oil cuts oil! Does help to control the secretion of excess sebum.
