I've been using it on my eyelashes for about a month and definitely I can see results on lash growing! My eyelashes are very sparse; my under eyelashes are almost invisible, seriously. I noticed this made them grow a little, enough so I can put mascara on them and make them finally visible. The upper eyelashes are also longer. Not a miracle, but definitely helps! These results are very similar with what I had when using Talika Lipocils (which I gave up on because it was too expensive for not being that miraculous. Never tried Latisse, too expensive, and I'm scared of the side effects).
I love this lipstick! it's really resistant, stays perfect all night long without retouching, and doesn't even leave any stains on glasses (which I find gross and is one of the reasons I usually don't wear lipstick). It may start to flake a little about 8 hours or so, though. The only downside is that, if you want to remove it earlier than that, it won't come off easily only with water and soap - but with a makeup remover you'll be fine. I have this in "keep up the flame" and it's a gorgeous non-shimmery red.

Unfortunately, this didn't work for me. I tried it yesterday, mixing about 1/3 castor oil and 2/3 jojoba oil, massaging for about 5 min and removing with a towel and hot water. My skin is very oily and acne prone, and as I was removing the oil, I felt an instant cystic pimple forming on my chin. I removed the oil the best I could, but still my skin was left feeling very greasy, ugh. I wish so much it had worked! =(

I have this in the lighter shade. I use it for contouring, and it works just fine for this purpose. But I can't use it as an overall bronzer or as a blush, because it would look like dirt on me (I'm a NW20).
Just another review saying: this blush is beautiful! =) it looks natural (it's pretty sheer even though I'm NW20), and has the right amount of shimmer. I love it!
This is my favorite blush, it looks completely like a natural flush on me (I'm a NW20). It's the one that I reach for almost everyday. I just don't like the package, mine broke the lid a lonnng time ago, and the brush that comes with it is useless (as happens to every brush-that-comes-with-the-blush, btw).
This is the only "tube mascara" I've tried so far, and I like it very much. As I never wear waterproof mascara because I'm too scared of losing any eyelashes while taking it out (I already have so few!), this is my pick for days where I'm afraid my mascara will smudge, like going to the movies to see something sad -- this is not heavy-crying-proof, but stays put after some tears! It goes out easily under warm water though. It also gives great length and good volume. I just don't like the time it takes to use the base first, then the mascara etc. and I also have mine for quite a long time now, and it didn't dry a bit!
This color didn't work well for me, but maybe would for someone with yellow undertones (I'm a NW20). It's a very cool pink, and looks a bit chalky and artificial on me.

Yes, I know it's supponsed to be sheer... but the coverage of this is just too poor. It also doesn't mattify well and may oxydize a little. I have it in NW20, and I think it's a little darker than other MAC products of the same shade.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - Dr Feelgood

I have a love-hate relationship with this product... I use it as a primer, before foundation. It always makes my skin look flawless! when I wear it, it seems any acne scars or large pores disappear, and the makeup lasts forever, never melt or smear under any condition (and I mean any!) It's amazing! and then, the next day: break outs. Always, every time I use it. But how can I give up on this if it makes my skin look perfect all night and morning long?? (mind you, my skin is oily and far from perfect, and there isn't any foundation on earth that can last magically as when I wear dr feelgood). So, what I do is to wear it only on special occasions. packaging: The tin is super cute, but I'm not a fan of the sponge.
I tried it only once, on a MAC counter. Looked good at first sight, but I'm glad I didn't buy it! Half an hour later I saw myself in a mirror and I had turned orange!!! and the weather wasn't even hot, I wasn't sweating or anything. When I got home a few hours later, I found out I had broken out badly where it was applied. I know a lot of people love it, but please don't buy it without testing it first!
I just can't live without it, period Nothing mattifies like this, and it makes my skin look good all day long. No breaking out at all. I love it and I've been faithful to it for 8 years or so! (I'm NW20 and wear the Medium shade, it's really light)
This is a great mascara for those who like a natural, polished look. It doesn't clump, doesn't smear or flake, and it's very good for lengthening and separating (not too much volume though).

Great volumizing mascara! The brush is bigger than average, so it gets a lot of product on the eyelashes (it also always gets some product on the eyelid as well, that I have to clean after with a cotton bud, but that's fine with me). But it doesn't clump or stick the eyelashes together. No flaking either. It also tends to smear a bit if I sweat, but I don't mind as I think it's expected with the amount of mascara that I put whenever I use it ;-) Overall, it's perfect for those who like strong and dramatic eyelashes!
