It's gentle, and does clean my face but it makes me sneeze!! It's probably the fragrance in the gel that makes me have that reaction and I've had to stop using it.
I got this for free from Shoppers cuz I have a lot of points on my optimum which made me really happy. I love the color that sets on my lips which is a deep pink and I feel very pretty wearying it. It's not sticky and goes on smoothly too and I always wear it when I want to boost my look.
I bought Colin in bright red and I love it!! I think the packaging is absolutely hilarious and hot, you always get a laugh then an ooooh when you show the sexy fireman to people lol! The gloss feels really nice on my lips, not sticky at all and the color so fabulous it makes me confident. I'm definitely hooked on Colin;)
When I used this product my lashes were so long my mother thought I bought falsies. However it did nothing for thickening and the area where I applied it on my eyelids became dark-ish. Also when you stop using it you lashes return to normal. I put no for repurchasing because I want to try an eyelash treatment that does the same thing except cheaper at shoppers drugmart (I forgot the brand name). If I don't see the same results I'll try the Talika version which is also cheaper and if that still isn't as satisfying I'll go back to StimuLash
It's affordable and the brush does an amazing kob at evenly distributing the mascara. My lashes look really thick and stay that way and people even ask me if I'm wearing fake eyelashes because they look so good. The only problem is that I sometimes get those black flakes so I'll try the waterproof version to see if that does any better.

Personally I feel this does nothing to bring out your eye color but it's fun to wear once and I while. I wore this to school and I got a lot of compliments were people thought it looked pretty but nothing about my eyes popping out. I also feel it's too much when wearing black eyeliner and that the sparkles don't match any other color of eyeliner at all. I'll just stick to using colored eyeliner and eyeshadow to bring out my eyes.
I don't really need this for everyday, my eyebrows are pretty dark and full as they are. I only use this for special occasions when I want to give my brows drama and that's were I find this product to be amazing. I use only a little of the powder and it goes a long long way in defining my eyebrows and making them look sharp and perfect. Thanks Benefit xox

I love it and think it sets my makeup beautifully and stops it from creasing. The only reason why I'm not purchasing it again is because I'm curious and want to try the Fix+ from MAC since it's made with soothing ingredients like green tea and cucumber. If I'm not satisfied I'll definitely go back to this one.
First off the whole mood boosting malarkey is bull.If it was proven that makeup can boost your mood then they'd be selling it over the pharmacy counter. Even if it's supposed to boost your mood simply because it suits a persons skin I personally belief that anything that claims to do so is lying and very misleading to consumers because you cannot guarantee that everyone will love it. Second the shade is too pink for my skin tone and cakes with my makeup. I'm never going to purchase this. The only reason why I have it is because I got it from a friend for Christmas.

Firstly it isn't the foundations fault that the saleswoman gave me a shade that was too dark. That being said I can't wear it during winter cuz it's too dark and would make me look look like an orange clown plus my skin is drier during the winter season and this only accentuated the dryness. Anyways I still think it's okay cuz it matches me in between seasons when my tan starts to fade and is easy to apply (thanks to the company including good instructions).
This is by far the worst bb cream I've ever tried! It's too heavy, cakes up, the lightest shade is too orange and to top it off, is 50 flipping dollars!! I've never hated something so much and will never buy it again! The only good that came out of it was that I got my money back and learned that my young skin doesn't need something heavy like that.

The reason why I gave it a 4 is because this can last you years and does a good job of brightening your under eyes. I did find that my eyes would crease as the day wore one but this can be fixed if you tear a tissue in half and press it on your under eye makeup (before using the powder). This allows the extra moisture to be absorbed and solves your creasing problems. You can also dab setting spray three times. First time is before applying under eye makeup, then after you've applied (which is before you would apply a setting powder of course) and lastly after applying the powder. Do this and I guarantee your under eye creasing problems will be solved! I learned this trick off youtube lol and the guy is gossmakeupartist. He's got the best makeup tips, I don't know what I've been doing before I watched his videos!!

It definitely does its job which is minimizing pores and I love that it's oil-free and goes on smoothly. However it doesn't deliver when using it as a full out primer in my opinion and I found that my makeup would still crease around my mouth. Also if you apply it incorrectly it will separate your makeup on top so apply only what you need. I'll be buying this again to hide my pores until I find the primer that can do it all for my face.

Sucks the bag. It makes my makeup cakey which is NOT the purpose of a bloody setting powder. I used the powder puff and followed the instructions but I found doing so a huge mistake then tried using a powder brush but that didn't help either. Might as well buy baby powder for cheap cuz that works way better than this crap.
I'm so very happy I bought this because in the winter I'm very pale and it's light enough that I can use it to contour my face. It's also amazing in the summer when I get dark because it adds a perfect glow, plus the brush is absolutely fabulous!
