Stain???? Wore off so quickly. Love the color. . . but need brush to apply and not worth the money. I finally threw this one out!
I've had terribly soft peeling nails my whole life. I found nailtiques at CVS and they had a very small bottle (almost sample size) for a reasonable cost . . . so I decided to try. Well, that was about 6 months ago and my nails no longer peel and I haven't broken a nail since I started using the product! I now must file my nails weekly to keep them from injuring anyone . . . mainly myself! I'll pay whatever amount they want for this nail protein and I also highly recommend.
YUK! Too much for too little! The powder is not fine enough, not enough wax and the brush is way too stiff. I know they say not to use eye shadow on the brow. . . but I found a perfect matte color and I use my soft slant brush to apply. Then I take an eyebrow brush and lightly remove excess shadow. I think it looks much more natural than the Smashbox brow.
This foundation can be tricky to apply. I do love the coverage though. I just read about using the Monistat Chafing Gel as a primer (very inexpensive) and low and behold. . . the MK just flows across the skin when the gel is applied first. Much easier to apply and stays on all day! I'm still playing around with MK color match to my skin though. Had to take some lippies off. . . this product made me break out terribly! Oh well, will try something else. I do love MU! If only foundations were easier to find!

Okay, who thought this one up? Love the way it makes my foundation (Mary Kay Medium) glide on and STAY on. I've tried lots of the expensive brands of primers and most make my face break out and just plain don't work very well. Don't yet know how my skin will react to this product in the long run, but I sure love the way it makes my face feel so far :-)

Wow. I love the French Manicure! It is kind of a hassle to find the product in a store though. I have to order from Walgreens on-line. But my nails look better and are stronger than they have ever been. Really easy to appy too:-)
