All of the rave is true, this is a must have!! I asked for a sample in Sephora and i've tried this, first is kinda of tricky to apply, but I find it fun to use my fingers! When applied, you have to blend and wait if you want to layer it, it is the most natural flush ever, and it stays forever!! With my super oily skin, most powder blushes fade away by time!! And normally I stay away from very sparkly blushes like Orgasm, this is Matte, Natural and Longlasting... I have never tried out Benefit, their product lines are quite expensive, but now i get the raves of Benetint, as a cult favorite.. Im feeling like running now to get Benetint!! I might also try out Posie and Cha cha tint!! Try it, it might be one of the best products you have ever put on!!
Love it!! A great lip balm, and reasonably priced, plus its all natural!! I love the tingly feeling it leaves on my lips!! I carry it in my bag alwaays!! A must have!!
Overwhelming smell, it makes me dizzy, i prefer the original beeswax from Burt's Bees.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

Mmm this smells great! When i first used it, i was kind of dissapointed, because of the oily-like texture. And the feeling it leaves when you rinse your face, like moisture. And i have pretty oily skin, to use an oily cleanser!! One day i saw this in my drawer and decided to start using it, and i guess i got used to it, and now i like the feeling it gives, before i used Noxzema, that didn't work for me at all, i loved the tingly sensation, but i really didn't feel it cleansed me at all. And other cleansers for example, the foaming one for one by Clinique, really dried me out, and somewhere i read that oily skin can be treated with the same thing.. Oil, sounds like homeopathy huh? And using it continuously i do see a difference in my face, it looks more fresh, more relaxed, and it has not brocke me out. I like to use this is in the mornings. I use it with the Clarisonic Mia. It does not foam, it leaves a nice smell, and a moisture kinda of feel. This is one of the few 100% natural cleanser you can easily find, also I dont find it expensive as others organic products. By the way, i urge you to enter this web site and browse about the ingredients that are in makeup products: http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/
Cleansers -Estee Lauder - Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

I got a sample of this cleanser, when i bought my HG foundation Double Wear, and i liked it so much. I have a very oily skin, i have to wear mattifier and blot my face during the day. I bought a full bottle as soon as i ran out of my sample. I recently bought a Clarisonic Mia, and with this stuff my face has never been so clear. I use this specially in the night, when i take my makeup off, in the morning i wear a less stripping cleanser from Burt's Bees. Plus you only a bit of this, to clean your face, so it does last you for months. You have to be careful with the packaging because mine brocke in a vacation when i accidently dropped it.
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara
NataliaRivera 2/6/2012 5:21:00 PM
When I discovered this web site http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ i browsed all of the makeup I have! I was so shocked almost every product can be unsafe at some point. So I started looking for more healthier options, although I loved my CG Lashblast and Revlon Colorstay. This PF mascara is organic, and is quite nice, i don't find a strange smell, comparing this to other mascaras, smells fine, some of them smell like tires! I like the packaging, it's a different design. I personally prefer plastic wands because they seem to reach every single lash and i don't have to apply coats and coats. I admit that I was very skeptic about an organic mascara, i was in an affair with Lash Blast for about 4 or 5 years, i bought it when it was launched and since then i haven't changed, ive had Voluminous which i also like very much, but i always came back for my precious orange tube. I think Organic Wear Jumbo Lash mascara, its a decent mascara it does: Volumizes Holds a curl Takes off easily so i don't loose lashes Its Organic The only Con i found, is that if i wear this for a long time, eventually it gives a bit of racoon eyes, i believe it may be because of my oily skin and that i've always worn waterproof mascaras, which are more difficult to take off. Almost all of the non waterproof mascaras ive tried have this Con, except maybe for Lash Blast. Still, i would recommend to try out this mascara.
HG! Love this stuff!!! If you love mint, this is for youu!! Mint is my favorite smell and i love the tingly sensation it gives, i use the mint foot cream also!! It's organic too, so it's a plus!!
I own the Light Blue knock off and it doesn't smell identical, similar, but not good, it smells like grass and sanitizer, i don't own the original, i wanted this to smell as good as the real one, i love the smell of green apples and lemon, but this one doesn't like it, has average staying power, anyway i don't like the smell in my skin. I wouldnt buy it again, i guess i should have saved my money and bought the original. I also own the Juicy Couture imitation, which is very similar, this one is much better, it's long lasting, and it does smells like the real thing, but this one, i took it because it was on Buy one, Get one free in Walgreens, and there was only one bottle of Light Blue left, so i took this one, i tested the Angel one, and it was very similar, strong and sweet, i don't like Angel that much, but if is your thing, you should try it out. The opium one is very similar too. I love the original Dolce and Gabbana The One, and the flanker, doesn't smell as good, also i noticed that the line is quite wide, the new ones i saw were, Be delicious, Sensous.
I love this! HG for oily skin women! I just put a bit on my nose, then i put Estee Lauder Double Wear or Mineralized skin finish and i get no Shine in my nose at all! This saved my face to turn in a grease ball!! I will keep buying it! By the way, this also works as a eyeshadow primer!!
Wonderful! I LOVE this, HG foundation, i was kind of giving up with liquid foundations, turning to powder ones, like MAC Fix, which i still like, but this made it for me, i have been it using it for months, and i am in love, i forgot that my face before Double Wear was an oily mess in the first hours of applying makeup, imagine at the end of the day, but with Double Wear seriously i dont get any shine at my face. I used Vichy Dermablend, Revlon Colorstay, Maybelline Matte Mousse, but Estee Lauder has it for me, this long wearing, super covering but natural, and i what i care more Matte, Us Oily skin girls, would love this foundation, i actually used idealist underneath it, but is so expensive, i now use the MAC Mattyfier in my nose, and then DW makeup on, sometimes i even skip the powder finish i use the MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Powder, and i never get shiny! Thats amazing, Double Wear is awesome, i STRONGLY recommend it to oily skin women!! And yes, i am going to keep buying it, i dont use the colorstay anymore, it melts on my face, this is more covering and stays on longer!! This is the best i have tried!!
Woow, this one is great! HG stuff! I love it, why havent i tried it first?? Its a pink peachy, beautiful, looks perfect on me :)
Just Started using this i like it, it looks very natural and matte, thats what i most desire in a blush, because i have oily skin, i dont want to shine, but this color is very pretty, i wanted to find a substitute to my old and beautiful Nude Rose from Estee Lauder that i can no longer find, this does it for me, now i use it every day, by the way love milani its great. :)
Foundations -Vichy - Dermablend Corrective Foundation

Pros Evens out your skin Blendable Pigmented, it really covers scars, blemishes and pores Cons For my oily skin this just doesnt work. At first applied it looks wonderful, very matte but it doesnt stay that way, in two hours my skin is shining all over, not even the matte mousse does me this. :( It may be work for people who dont have such oily skin as i do :) I think im gonna try the Estee Lauder Double wear, since i saw a makeup artist for tv using this on a tv presentor and it stayed put all day, and also because of the reviews here in MUA. I dont think im gonna buy this again im in the search for my HG Foundation!
I bought this on Big Lots for $3.50. I like the compact! Usually drugstore compacts are very ugly or annoying, but this is perfect, red and elegant, has a mirror then the powder and a sponge. I have this is 09 Medium Beige/Golden Beige, that is very similar to my skin tone, im C3 in MAC. This is not a sheer powder, this is pigmented and thick, but i like that because i wet a sponge and use it as a foundation, it looks more natural. I dont use it over thick foundation, i just pat some powder with a brush. I think this is a good powder, its a shame that is discountinued, because there arent a lot of good drugstore pressed powders out there, or not that havent tried them all!
Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Active Light Makeup SPF 25 ] [DISCONTINUED]
NataliaRivera 9/27/2009 10:12:00 PM
I had a lot of expectations, since ive read a lot of raves for Revlons foundations, i wanted to try this, since it claims to be light and has spf. This foundation claims to be lightweight but i found it very covering, i dont think this is a sheer foundation, i think mineral power from maybelline is more sheer and works better with my oily skin. I was very excited to find this on sale for $3, but i got the wrong shade 04 nude, because it was lightest shade, im C3 or NC30 in MAC, but this was dark kinda orangy for me. This has 25 spf, i like that i am a lot in the sun and i dont like my face to tan but this thing melts!! and i bought it because i have oily skin and here in Southern California is super hot lately!! What i hate is that doesnt stay on place in this summer weather! Also it has a strong scent, its esay to blend, but it doesnt look natural on me because its darker, i just put it where i need it, not all over because i look like and ompa loompa!
