I have been using this for about two weeks and it is currently my HG foundation. Saying I love this product is absolutely an understatement. I remember when i first got it home and applied it on my full face and i looked in the mirror and thought to myself 'WOW i never thought my skin could look so naturally beautiful', i know itís cheesy but completely true. Though this foundation is very pricey it is worth it. It photographs beautifully, at least in my experience and is not drying or dry looking at all. It dries matte but its not like MUFE HD foundation matte its just mostly matte with a very mild dew but that could be because i have oily skin. It looks very natural and someone that I work with even commented the other day saying I looked very healthy and well rested (which I was not) and I attribute this to the foundation because all I was wearing was the Chanel Mat Lumiere, UD cheek tint(which is gosh damn amazing btw) and mascara. If you have slightly oily skin and want a mostly matte finish this foundation is perfect for you, if you are super super oily like me this foundation is good for long wear but after about 8-10 hours it can separate in the t zone depending on the climate your in. I havenít used a foundation that didnít look an oily mess in more that 6 hours so I was blessed to have it last 8-10. If you can afford to splurge a bit I completely recommend trying this foundation especially if you are oily!
This product absolutely works. Iíve tried EVERY acne system you can name, I promise, and none of them really worked. This is the first oral acne system I have ever tried and it really made a difference. I would say I have moderate cystic acneÖ some might say itís severe at times but I think it could be worse. Within a week of taking this product I saw changes in my skin. I have this patch of tiny whiteheads under my lip on my chin that Iíve had all my life; you canít see it unless I suck my bottom lip in but it is GROSS. This product cleared that up in like 2 weeks. That area of my face has NEVER been clear of those small whiteheads prior to using natureís cure. So because I was drinking so much water and eating healthier when I first started taking this I thought maybe that was clearing my skin or maybe my skin was just getting better and I could stop taking the pill and Iíd be okÖ nu uh. I didnít start breaking out right away but about 3 weeks later I started to get cystic acne all over my chin, after Iíd had some sugary drinks, and a few pimples on my cheeks and forehead. UNFORTUNATELY the Wal-Mart closet to me no longer carries this product so I ended up having to order it online (www.americarx.com) because I NEED it back. I have oily skin and have yet to find anything to keep that aspect of it completely under control but this definitely got rid of my acne and almost made my skin look glowly when I got slightly oily. Its definitely my HG for skincare. I completely recommend this for someone with oily/ sensitive skin with mild to moderate acne. As far as the moisturizer or w/e it is I donít use that, it dried my skin and didnít really do anything, but the pill alone worked for me. I ordered Natureís Cure 3-part papaya acne system also. I hope this works as well as the 2-part system. Hope this was helpful!!!
Horrible formula! I love the sleek packaging but the brush is too small for that thick formula. It makes my lashes super clumpy immediately and the brush is so small that when I try to go back and seperate them I just end up getting even more mascara on them and the clumpyness gets EVEN WORSE! The only reason this is getting 2 lippies is because it is a nice true black color and it can be used effectively, only after you have applied a coat of good mascara and let it dry, to make ur lashes super black.
This blush is amazing! The first MAC blush i ever purchased in 08' and I havent stop loving it since. It is my HG blush. Its buildable if you use a light hand but i'm NC45 so one swipe on each side is good for me for that natural no make-up face. I've used it on more fair skin girls than myself and it always looks awesome. Everyone should own this blush, seriously, it is such a natural flush color! LOVE IT!

Ordered one e/s from the eBay store. Mediocre pigmentation and no staying power even with good primers. Pigmentation is decent if fix + is used but i was not impressed.
I love love love love love this color!!!!! This is the first nail polish that i am actually buying a back up bottle of. Everyone should defintely own this polish. And maybe its all in my head but it seems to dry a bit faster than the other OPI colors.

I purchased the 24/7 liner in zero and it does not last on the waterline AT ALL, not to mention its really not very black. My eyes can be a little watery but even cheap drug store liners last longer than this UD liner did. Definitely a waste of money and I will not repurchase. The only reason i am giving it two lippies is that its good for smudging on the lid and under the eye.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

I've only had this liner for 2 days and am already certain I don't like it. It isn't super black, like I was expecting and its very thin. It is water resistant to an extent but nothing to jump up and down about. I haven't tried it on my water line, just on my lids with no concealer or eye shadow. Maybe once I try w/ eye shadow my opinion will change but I don't like the consistency of this liner so I doubt it. I definitely recommend clinique true black creme liner if you are looking to buy a black gel liner. Update: After spending a little more time to "get to know" this liner i really like it. I mean its not my favorite but i might repurchase.
I really had high hopes for this product especially since the people on the commercial had more severe acne than myself and it worked for them... but it didnít work for me. I tried this product for a month. I only used it about 4 times a week because it made my face burn a little. The more I used it my face began to swell, it became red, increasingly dry, it would itch, and was extremely sensitive to sunlight. Maybe my skin is just too sensitive for this product but I have tried sooooo many different acne systems and nothing has ever had this adverse effect on my skin. I also continued to break out. I do not recommend this product.

I love this product and I have tried so many brush cleaners and so many methods to cleaning my brushes. It cleans ur brushes quickly and leaves them feeling soft. Also they dry in 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the brush. Yes it has a strong citrus smell but I like it, it smells very clean. Also I saw that a few members said the smell gave them head aches. It did bother me a little at first but once I opened a window and let air into the room and it solved that problem. I mean these are chemicals so u do need to have ventilation in the room and it states that on the bottle. The smell does linger but if you don't mind the smell of citrus and want ur brushes professionally clean then u should give it a try.
Its a very pretty higlighter or bronzer for girls with a medium and light medium skin tone. I am more of a deep medium and it makes my cheeks look dry. It has a slight whiteness to it if I put too much on. I have tried using it as a bronzer and I can but I definitely have to sweep lighlty so i prefer it as a highlighter. I mean I suppose someone darker than myself might like the way it looks but I dont see it being very appealing at all consdering i am barely able to pull it off. But results do differ from person to person.
I got this blush with the LOL collection and I love it. I am an NC45 and its so soft and subtle. This is one of the most universal beauty powders I have ever tried and again I love it! I also tried it on my best friend who is very fair and it also looks amazing on her. Very buildable and really works well with most skin tones.
Love Love Love this product. I am NC45 and its and awesome peachy nude color. Looks amazing with MAC's ample pink p/g(permananet). The one down side to this is you really have to exfoliate and moisturise your lips very well because it will show all fine lines, wrinkles, and intesify any peeling skin on the lips. Even with that being said this nude is so amazing and definitely worth it.
Hmmmm... where to begin. I have owned the glamour to go II palette for about 4 months now and i rarely use it. It is the only eyeshadow palette that i keep in my purse. The colors in the palette are just too frosty for me. I only wear one of the e/s colors and that is the first brown in the second row. None of the others compliment my skintone and frankly the really dont compliment each other. It really just appears to be random colors picked to go into a palette together. The blush was ok but it broke after about a month so i really didnt get to use it very much :(. i guess it wasnt packed very tight because i dont make it a point to toss my makeup bag around. Lastly the lip colors.. They are very sticky and not very opaque. Over all i do feel like it was a waste of money simply because i only use one eyeshadow out of the whole palette.
Its really a great color. I am a deep olive skin tone so i prefer to wear it with partial to pink cremesheen glass on top of it and it looks wonderful. its definitely a great color for more fair skin girls but it looks fine on olve skin tones as well. The one bad thing I can say about it is it dries out my lips sooooo bad, even when i put chapstick on first, and yes it does make ur lips look gross if they are even a little chapped. It never fails :-(, but i love the color so much it's no biggie LoL!
