I LOVE THIS ONE! It is the best (mineral) foundation I have ever tried. It gives a great and natural coverage, creat color(s), easy to apply, its matte and it stays on for several houres, and i don't look oily in my t-zone. Many have complimented my skin when I wear this. even my grandmother at 80 years wanted to try this one, and she doesn't wear make-up. I can use it only to buff it tenderly on my skin just to matte out some areas, or i can apply to cover all my face, eighter way, it looks so good! The downpart: The price, and it does not last for that long. If it wasn't for that, this one would score on top, on every ratings here!
The pen is way to big!! And this color does not suit my skin. It has some pinky undertones, and I look really cheap wearing this color, but that ain't NYX's fault. *lol* It will leave mark over my lid every time I blink my eyes too. And that looks horrible. It is also to creamy, so it feels like i cant control what goes on my lids. I will not buy this again. Maybe nyx-jumbo's milk, but i will wear that as a highlighter.
The foundation does a pretty good job. I covers pretty darn good I must say, but since I'm not a fan of the ingrediense in Mac's products, therefor it won't get the highest rate. But; my skin looks amazing after applying this, and it stays on a for a long time. It does a good (not 100%) job covering my pigment-marks. And as everybody says: you skin glows! t does! The packaging (without the pump) can quickly turn into a waste if not careful. ;o) I don't think the price is the worst eighter. Overall: a good product that I will buy again.

I have bought this one before, but stoped using it after I believe this one dries out to fast, and the brush is to big for my lashes/eyes. The mascara is muddy and hard to lay without looking sticky (spider-eyes). I did for some stupid reason buy this one again for $30, and it's not worth it. I use a eyelash comb, to comb my lashes after applying this one. The thing i like is the color. It gives an intense black color that not all mascaras dowill not buy again! The packaging looks fine though, but obviously not good enough since the mascara dries out to fast.
I really love this gloss, and I am not a fan of pinkish glosses at all, but this one works really well for me. I have a skintone i bit like Kim Kardashian, and i have colored lips as well, but still this does a very good job. It is very beautyful if you'll have a bit tannet skin with yellow undertones. I do believe that if you have to much redness in your skin this can look horrible on that skintype. The texture is a bit "watery" for my taste, thats the only thing i can complain on, and also that it doesn't stay on that long before i need to touch up. But i will repurchase. I love the packaging! Love it. Plain and simple.
My hair is thick, coarse and dry. This one did an OK job with my hair, but it did not do it perfect. My hair is not as soft as it becomes of Joicos serum. I like Joicos serum a lot better. I have a friend that hates the Joico Serum. She said it made her hair greasy. That I belive, but for my super-dry hair Joico is perfect, and for my friends not so dry hair (and much thinner to) Bumble & Bumbles defrizz is brilliant. Price is ok. The packaging was nice.
This one really keeps it promises, but because of the package and the small amount in the bottle it did not do it for me. Yes, my skin started glowing only after one week of using it, and yes...my acnes disapeared over night. But because of the price, and because it did got empty way to fast, it is just not worth it. The one thing it didn't promise was to remove all acne scars, but hey...can any product ever do that? ;)

i have thick, coarse, dry and wavy hair. this one did not do it for me (does any of the tigi's product do it for me?). it left my hair even drier, and the curls did not rock allright. it dried them out.
LOVE this one. I'm a big fan of curly, long and thick lashes. And this one does it all! Only 2 strokes, and I'm ready to go. I use lancome's xxl booster under my mascara. But when I tried it without the booster it was still perfect! My favourite! :-)

Moisture? Where? What? This one actually dries out my hair. It feels like a drugstore shampo and conditioner (only worse), and is not worth the money. Dont even think i would take these for free. My hair is thick and dry...Maybe honey&oatmeal is better for me? I'm not sure if i dare to try another Tigi product. Have not been happy with any of them. Can't understand why hairsaloons sell this brand eighter... :-/
This is great for summer...but NOT for the winter. Skin look fake and to shimmery. But i will definetly use this in the summer. Then it will look more natural cuz of the sun. I wouldnt recomend this for very oily skin. Shimmer is not good for oily skin...

Yuck! Would not buy this one again. It dries out TO FAST, so i'm not able to cover my up the whole body before it dries. It leaves skin streaky, and it does NOT last for 5 days at all. I also have to use 3, maybe 4 layers before it shows for real. Please, save your money!
Didn' like this one. The smell is awful (and i'm a fan of smells), but i smelled like fake oranges *yuck* My hair felt okay, but it gt static. My har was all in the air! Would not repurchase.
The foundation is just ok. It doesnt hide blemishes or spots. It's supposed to, but I heard it didn't, so i didn't expect it. It looks real natural to. The warmth is great. Gives a warm colour without looking fake. The veil is also great. Covers oily skin perfect! They are all easy to apply. The greatest thing is; i can't feel it. And thats a plus, cuz i hated to use foundation, just because of that. But no more thanks to this one. Would repurchase.

This isn't the best i've tried. At first I put to much in my hair so on the top it looked very greasy. But lower on my hair i couldn't see any shine at all :-( I have very thick hair-straws so maybe thats it? My hair really need alot og product at once, but its hard to to that with this one. Then it looks greasy. Maybe better for thinner and finer hair! UPDATE: Tried it today after washing my hair, and oh my God do I hate this one? Looks like i have poored butter all over my hair :-(
