I can understand the reviews being negative about this product. But for people like me with short lashes - this is the answer to my problems. Yes, it takes a few coats to enhance the lashes, but it lengthens them with the fibres and it lasts me all day. I stumbled across this mascara by accident bc I actually thought I was buying the Zoom Lash, but the girl made a mistake & gave me the fibre one. It was the best mistake ever. I love this product & will recommend to anyone with little lashes. Room for improvements on this product is that it is quite a dry formula (most ppl like a creamy mascara) and i find that it doesnt last very long bc the dry formula dries out.

I have troubled skin - dry and sensitive. This is my HG of HG!! Seriously amazing stuff. Only need a pea size of product for my whole face and leaves my skin feeling amazing and moisturised. Doesnt clog pores and penetrates deep into the skin without leaving a greasy film. Most importantly, looks great under makeup. I have tried so many moisturisers - pretty much any brand you can think of and I keep going back to this moisturiser as I havent found anything that beats it yet. (Although Kiehl's & Aesop came close).
FINALLY!!!! After years and years of trialing and searching for the 1 step cleansing solution for dry and sensitive skin - I have found it. This cleansing oil is miraculous. Removes all traces of makeup with ~1.5 pumps/ removes eye makeup and leaves skin feeling soft and clean without feeling like it has been stripped. Perfect for skin on the dry side. I love this product. The only thing that would make it better is if the pump bottle also had a cap over the top, which would be good for travel.
I have dry skin and the girl @ MAC suggested I try this product. The texture of this foundation was a bit weird (kinda like mousse) but when I applied it, it just sat on my skin and didnt blend well. I tried various ways of applying this foundation - with a brush, sponge, stipple brush, fingers..... you name it!!! But still couldnt get it right. The colour was right but I could see some caking on my nose after about 2 hours of wearing it. By the end of the day, looking in the mirror, I could see that the makeup was really streaky. I love MAC, but am not impressed with this foundation. UPDATE: have now broken out badly from this foundation and am reverting to my good ol' Studio Fix which is always reliable.
I have been using this foundation for about 6 months now. Suprisingly, I havent broken out from it (i normally breakout bc of sensitive skin). At first, this foundation gave me amazing coverage and looked beautiful on my skin. Lately, it has started caking and as someone mentioned previously,..... sucking every drop of moisture from my face. I have started using a crazy heaving duty rich moisturiser to counter-balance the foundation, but it hasnt helped. For those with oily or normal skin, this would be a fantastic foundation. For those with dry skin, it makes it drier. Overall; I have to say this was one of the better foundations (for texture and coverage), but not good for dry skin. So, I guess I'm still looking for the one. The girl at MAC suggested the mineralize, so I will give it a try. (fingers crossed!!)
