I was using Rimmels extra super lash for awhile until I asked my sister to try her mascara. At first, I was dissatisfied with the smell, as it sort of smells of some sort of liquor for some odd reason (it could just be me). Upon trying it, I was very satisfied with how my lashes looked. They were very full, dark and long. I have almost non existent lashes, due to the fact that I have light hair, but this helped them to look curled (even though I never curl my lashes). I will definitely continue to use this product until something else comes along. Overall, the only con(s) I could find were the smell (see above) and it also tends to put a lot of product on your lashes, so I usually have to take a lash brush to remove some of the excess.
I bought it in hopes that it would help with evening out my skin tone, but it failed miserably. The smell is a notable turn off, as is the texture. It feels like water, and not in a good way. The little beads that are supposed to "release color" did nothing but scratch at my skin. After wearing it for about an hour or two, I had to take it off as it was burning my skin. I also noticed how red and irritated my skin looked even after wearing it for only an hour. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

As with all Physician Formula products, the quality is up to par with that of more expensive brands. I have mild acne scarring and I use this before applying my foundations. It really helps in canceling out that redness, but always make sure to blend because the green stands out especially if you are very pale. Overall, I like this product and I will continue to use it.

Let me start off by saying that I love this product. It is a bit expensive, but I believe it is well worth it. I have a lot of redness in my skin, and it relieves a lot of that irritation. It leaves me skin very soft, and smooth. I usually buy the loose powder from the same brand, but I hated how messy it was. I usually ended up with more powder on my shirt than on my face. The brush it utterly useless, so I bought a foundation brush. It looks quite natural compared to other products I've used. I love that it also doesn't have a smell as face powders do. I do not have to keep applying it either. I also have combination skin, and this product keeps my oily parts from looking shiny and greasy, while helping my dry parts (especially around my temples) from becoming flaky.
I have very very pale skin, sometimes even translucent light makes my skin look a bit too tan for the rest of my body so I decided to go with a sort of "custom" color. I also have combination skin, as my skin can get very very dry but it can also get very, very oily. My first reaction to this product before opening the bottle was that it from the exterior, it fit my skin pretty well but of course I wasn't going to go strictly by that so I bought it. Upon trying it my first time I realized that it had a very "mousy" type of feel (if that is even a word). My first try was a great success. Everyone commented on how smooth my skin looked. I have mild hyper pigmentation left from acne scars so I am constantly on the hunt for something that will help cover them up. My second attempt of trying this product was somewhat of a failure and I'm not sure if it was through consumer error or the product. My skin after awhile started feeling greasy, it was shiny and overall gross looking. So I counteracted this with a blotting sheet. I would recommend that you do not put moisturizer on before this, as I believe this is what caused my skin to be so oily. I also broke out along my jaw line in little pimples. I probably won't be buying this product again, even though it made my skin (at first) look perfect.
