I LOVE this stuff! I have super curly hair that isn't all that thick and this stuff does wonders for me! I wait for my hair to air dry/drip dry and don't touch it at all while it's drying. Once it's dry and my curls are formed I use some of this to define my curls and get rid of most of my frizz. While I really do like this stuff I feel like there's gotta be something else out there that works better against frizz. I may try combining another product with this but overall I love what this does for me and I'm the closest I've ever been for finding my perfect hair routine.
I've been using this foundation for almost two months now and I love it when it goes on. I don't need much coverage and this is perfect for that. It blends out really well and is long lasting. However, I hate the way my skin looks hours later. I feel like this foundation dries it out despite using a moisturizer before hand. My nose is extremely bipolar. It's really oily everywhere except the tip which flakes uncontrollably when I use this foundation and even days after. I have also noticed some small bumbs on my forehead and cheeks and contribute them to this foundation. Again, when I don't use it my skin behaves better and my skin isn't sensitive at all. The packaging is great and you get a lot of bang for your buck. I may keep this around and see how it does in the summer when they air isn't so dry but I would not recommend this product nor will I buy it again.
This is an Ok mascara in my opinion. I don't absolutely love it, which was disappointing. I haven't had any problem with flaking but I'm not fond of the way it makes my lashes look. I have pretty good lashes and this makes them look spiky and the formula makes them really hard. It gives some pretty good length though. And if you take a comb through your lashes right after applying the mascara you can get rid of some of the spikiness. I'll stick with L'Oreal's Voluminous false lashes, even though they flake after a while.

I purchased this product in 15 medium and I am not at all happy with it. The shade is too dark for my skin color and doesn't cover up my dark circles. It makes my eyes look hollow. I'll probably keep this around and see if it does any better in the summer, but right now it's just not working for me. It is very pigmented and you don't need a lot of product. If you're dark circles aren't that bad and you find a shade that matches you I think this'll be a great product for you.

I bought this product in 545 warm beige and for the most part, I love it. It doesn't get cakey or too powdery and leaves my skin pretty natural looking. However there is one con: this shade is just a hint too dark. The next shade up is too light. Being biracial, it's hard to find a product that matches my skin perfectly, but as long as I blend this out well I don't think anyone else will notice but me. It's also pretty good at controlling the oil in my t-zone.
