This foundation isn't bad. I have yet to find a foundation that can claim HG status for me - but this stuff is nice. I got it in the shade Buff and it is a fantastic match for me skin. This foundation doesn't look cakey on my skin. Infact - it looks quite natural. It gives my oily/combo skin a nice matte finish, and also helps control shine throughout the day. For some reason this doesn't give me the coverage I thought it would. I don't get coverage that is very full. Maybe it's the way I apply it? Who knows. I'll keep it around until I find something better. (Oh, and for a MAC reference, I'd probably be NC20)
Honestly, I don't really know if this helps with de-frizzing my naturally very curly hair because I always use at least two products in my hair. I just bought this because it was mega cheap and the ingredients appealed to me. I think this does aid in making my hair feel a lot softer. I'll have to try this on it's one today and see what happens. Anyway, it was only like a buck for this decently sized bottle and it's pretty nice stuff. Would repurchase.
One word. OUCH. My sister bought this a few days ago, and I tried to talk her out of it because I thought I remembered using this at a friends house a while back and hating it. She refused to listen and bought it, and I thought since I didn't pay anything I might as well test it out once. I did use this before, and like my first experience, my second one was just as bad. Like a few reviewers mentioned - it feels like peeling dried glue off your face. I can't see how this would work for anyone! Thank goodness for MUA, or I would be buying so many useless products that aren't worth any money.
Not bad shampoo. I bought this and the Intense Moisture Conditioner. I have naturally very curly hair that needs all the moisture it can get. This worked nicely. It cleaned my hair without it feeling overly dry. I don't know if I'd ever repurchase though as I like my Suave shampoo & conditioner better.
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Dual Action Alpha Hydroxy Formula

I bought this with the intent of using it on my face. Due to the combination of my new skin regimen (lots of BP!) and the cold winter, my normally oily/combination skin was beginning to get very dry and flaky. I search everywhere for the Alpha Hydroxy moisturizers I wanted, but couldn't find them anywhere! I saw this in CVS on clearence for like a buck, and decided to give it a try. It never listed if it clogged pores or not, but I was willing to risk giving it a try. I've been using it for two weeks and I love it! It's very creamy but It's not very greasy. It makes my skin soo smooth and hasn't caused me to breakout or contributed to any breakouts. My skin feels soft, smooth, and hydrated. I also love using it on the rest of my body like knees and elbows. Would def repurchase! Cheap and effective!
This is a pretty good mask. It smelt nice, too. I got a sample pack which says that it only supplies one application, but I've gotten three out of it so far and still have a decent amount left. I like how the mask itself is very creamy so it's easier to spread evenly. It dries really tight, which is something I'm not used to. This is one of the first masks I've ever tried where I really can't move my face at all when I'm wearing it - but it's no big deal. It makes my skin look really nice, especially my pores. It makes them look smaller. I guess I would re purchase, al though I like Queen Helene Mint Julep mask better.
I don't understand why this got rave reviews, I really don't. I don't mean to be the bump in the road, but I hated this powder
My skin gets so greasy, so so fast. I was using that covergirl oil control powder, the one in the blue compact. With that I'd have to touch up my face every class period (every 40 minutes). I got fed up and bought this hoping it would be better.
WRONG! This was not worth it. At least for me. I still had to touch up my face every hour or so, and this powder was soo chalky! Horrible. Will NEVER buy again.
So far, so good! I went to MAC intending on purchasing the studio finish concealer (the one in the pot), but the MA convinced me to try this instead. It is amazing. It's definetly wonderful under my eyes. It makes my eyes look brighter and makes me look so well rested and more awake. It also is great at covering blemishes, redness, etc. It's sheer but buildable, so it still provides great coverage. I have a concealer brush but I prefer using my fingers. Would definetly repurchase! This will probably last me forever because I use such a small amount.
Gorgeous! I have PPP skin, brown hair, and brown eyes - and this looks fab on me! Its a nude peachish pink on me. I really like it and would definetly buy again :)
First thing I have to say about this is .. OUCH! I put it on and waited for the tingleness but didn't feel any. A few minutes later and my lips burned. They hurt so bad. This lipgloss did work for me. It gaves me lips a very lovely rosy shade and they definetly were plumper, but it just hurt for me! I also have a tendency to rub my lips together a lot, and some of this gloss got on the skin around my lips and it made a ring around my lips which almost looked like they were chapped. I wouldn't buy again, simply because I can't see myself using this that often. It definetly works, though!
This was my first CJ. I like it! It's clear with multi colored glitter. The glitter is nice because it's not gritty, and it's not "in your face glittery". It looks really nice in the light. I don't know if I'd repurchase, though, because I have a million clear glosses.
I LOVE this shadow! I bought it thinking it would have more pigment, but it's really just a shimmery silver with a tint of baby blue. I love using it to highlight my brown eyes. I also like putting it on the inner part of my lid to open my eyes. This is also great as a highlighter for me. I use a knife and scrape of a tiny layer and mix it in my liquid foundation. It adds shimmer to my foundation which gives my skin a nice glow without being obviously glittery. Very multi purpose and would definetly repurchase.
This is nice! I was at target and decided to pick up some WnW eyeliner when this caught my eye. I remembered MA having good reviews on it so I bought. Heck it was under $3.00 so who cares? On my pale skin it goes on as a neutral color with some shimmer, but if I layered it I could probably get more color if I wanted. I like it as a natural day look, and I'm also going to try it as an eyeshadow base and see how that works out. I'd repurchase.
This was the first lipglass I purchased. At first I didn't like it at all and threw it in my bottom draw where it was ignored. I saw all these rave reviews and thought I should give it another try. Surprisingly, I actually really like it! I have PPP skin, brown eyes and brown hair. It has a nice gold shimmer to it. I don't know how often I'll wear it, but I guess I'd repurchase.
I really like this. I have PPP skin, dark brown hair, and dark brown eyes. It kind of reminds of my MAC Lipglass, Nymphette. It's a beigy pink with gold shimmer. It's very pretty and looks nice on me. I can't see myself running out of it since I have a 1000 lipglosses and never use the same one, but I would re purchase.
