Amazing! MUFE F&B has been the only liquid foundation I have liked...until now!! Light to medium coverage, doesn't emphasize flakes, crease or pool in pores. Goes on like a dream and wears well all day with a healthy dewy finish that doesn't look the least bit greasy. Love, love, love!!
Love , love, love this foundation! No sparkly/iridescent particles, but leaves a real skin finish that lasts all day! This hasn't irritated my very sensitive, rosacean, dry. skin and I get compliments on my skin every time I wear it. My only word of caution is that this runs a bit dark, so order samples first to help you select the right shade.
Seriously great lippie! Wears very well (especially for a lippie with a glossy finish), moisturizing, no weird taste/smell. I hope they keep making these forever!! These feel very similary to the Megashield lippies, so my review is similar. These are perhaps just a bit lighter-textured. Traditionally I have only worn Clinique and MAC lippies because I hate the taste/smell of others. But I tossed all of my Clinique and MAC stuff because they test on animals now. :o( So very happy to find a good replacement!!

LOVE this massage cream! Long-lasting slip, great scent (but not too girly to use on your man) and it is sooo moisturizing! Great for home mani/pedi as well. Nothing makes my feet softer. And the simple ingredient list doesn't irritate my uber-sensitive skin. LOVE!!

WOW! I bought the two-pack of this cream to make the hand cream that's been circulating on Pinterest (4oz Vaseline, 4oz Vit E cream and 8oz baby lotion). When I was making the hand cream, I felt this Vit E cream by itself and noticed how nice it was. The ingredients list looked rather tame so I tried it on my face. I have UBERsensitive skin and guess what? My skin LOVES it! The smell is light and dissipates quickly. And the jar packaging doesn't bother me. I clean out my stash regularly, so nothing sits around too long at my house. This is a WINNER! Hope the never quit making it.
WOW!! I hate regular Great Lash passionately. But I have loved every single mascara I have tried that has a rubber-bristled spoolie; so I gave this one a shot. Color me amazed! It goes on quickly and well, thickens, lengthens, curls and dries as fast as other mascaras. No clumps, no wet nasty spider legs. And it lasts the whole day without flaking or smudging!! I took off one lippie because it's called "Lots of Lashes" but doesn't thicken as much as some of the other mascaras out these days - but as long as you don't want that heavy look, this one is perfection. I am super-impressed and hope this one is on the market for a LONG time.
Love, Love, LOVE these! MAC TLC Plum Perfect was my HG lippie for years. But since they discontinued it, I have been absolutely lost. Having tried all manner of tinted balms, lip sticks and glosses, I bought one of these on a whim ($3.99 a tube, what could hurt??) on a trip to Sally's. WOW! This is seriously the best tinted lip balm I've ever used! It is actually moisturizing and doesn't have any weird flavors/scents. It also doesn't have any of they tingly/minty oils that can be sensitizing. And it has great color pay off! I went back to Sally's, purchased one of every color, plus a few tubes for my mom. I'm telling everyone I know about how WONDERFUL these balms are!!!
I had high hopes for this lipstick. I got it in Darling which appeared to be a milky beautiful pinky-nude in the package, but turns bright bubble-gum garish pink after a couple hours. And it stains the lips brighter pink. It actually reminds me of the old color-changing lipsticks CG used to make. The texture seems nice. I did notice some bleeding around the lip line (I don't have lip wrinkles, so that struck me as odd). And it does have that "off" scent of castor oil that all CG lipsticks seem to have. But overall it's not bad. I plan to exchange this for a different color.
