I love this concealer. It covers everything, from acne scars to undereye circles. Too bad this has been discontinued!!!
I like this product. This really does thicken my eyelashes. I apply this everyday before I apply mascara... All I can say is, what a difference!! I am not sure if this tonic soften my lashes, but it does a fantastic job in thickening them. The brush is too hard though. It hurts sometimes.
This oil is better than the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. I'd been using DHC for the past 5 years until I met this Fancl product in Dec 2004 in Japan. It was 1700 yen in a 120ml bottle. This oil removes everything like DHC, but the texture is a lot less oily/thick. With this, I don't have to use a second cleanser. Also, this oil does not dry out my skin unlike a lot of other cleansing oils on the market. I will keep using this as long as I can find the product in the U.S.
I bought this three weeks ago at Sephora after reading all the rave reviews here. I must say I am dissapointed. I've been using a Shiseido curler for 9 years, and it works 200% better than this. Maybe it has something to do with my eye shape? Will stick with my Shiseido.
Great cleanser. Have been using it for three years non stop. I do need the second cleanser though. Without it, my oily skin breaks out. It practically removes any waterproof makeup, and I love how it makes my skin feel so soft. I wish it costed less and had a cap instead of the pump though so that I could carry it around for traveling.
So much work to put it on. Gotta use fingers instead of sponge. It takes good 15 min to put this on. You also need to put on powders after this because the color does not turn out to be even. I actually liked the powderly matter finish that it gave though. Still not worth the hassle. It also gave burning sensation around the eye areas. Did not like this.
Although this is supposed to be oil-free, this was way too oily for me. Putting this on my face is like putting colored oil on my face. THAT bad for me. Plus I got the burning sensation around my eyes when put this on. Did not like this AT ALL.
Great stuff. Very impressed. I use the colorless, but it seems to give me the nice healthy tanned look. Strange, huh? Anyway, it controls the oil pretty well and gives me the matte look that I love since I have super oily skin. Will repurchase again.

Love this powder. It gives me the nice matte look that I love and controls the oil well. Very sheer and gives the natural look. Will repurchase again.
Good concealer. Since I have super oily skin, I wish it had more dry formula. It still conceals my large pores as well as acne scars well though. I prefer Nars concealer because of its drier formula, but if they ever discontinue thiers, this will be the one I will be using everyday.
My HG concealer. The color matches exactly, and I love its dry formula since I have oily skin. This concealer might be too drying for those with already dry skin though. It conceals all of my large pores so well as well as my acne scars. Use this every single day. Will repurchase this again, again, and again.
Nope, way too oily. This may be good for those with dry skin though. Not for my oily skin.. I prefer Nars concealer because of its dry formula.
Great stuff! Thanks for all of yall for reviewing this product. Without reading these reviews on here, I would have never thought about trying Aveda makeup line. This powder foundation controls the oil very well and gives the flawless look to my face. I don't use this in a compact..just use out of the plastic package, and it's good enough for me! Will repurchase again.
I was dumb enough to buy this when I knew so well that I had super oily skin. This is an oil-based foundation, and I believe it would be great for those with dry skin. This, however, made my skin super oilier than it already is and broke me out. The smell, I couldn't stand it either. I gave it away to my sister who has dry skin. She later said she couldn't use it because of its strong smell.
My HG mascara. It gives the most volume out of all mascaras I've tried. Since the volume matters the most when selecting the mascara personally, this is the BEST mascara out there for me. It does get clumpy, but as long as you comb the lashes using the eye lash brush (I use one by Sonia Kashuk - GREAT STUFF!) several times during the application, you should be fine. Will repurchase again and again.
