Finally bought this foundation after much indecision. It's nice, gives me the coverage I need, but it isn't waterproof or resistant, so when my eyes water it leaves a streak I have to blend in. Great color match; Siberia matches my skin perfectly. Feels a bit heavy to me though. Gonna use the bottle and then try to find something else.

Very pricy ($100) BUT after using for only two days I'm already seeing results. The dark circles I inhereted are already lightening up. Haven't had any dryness, but then again I have ludicrously oily skin. Will update in a month.
This is the best liquid foundation I've ever used. I need just a tiny amount, and I still get flawless full coverage. My oily skin usually hates liquid foundation, but this one worked amazingly. And it actually matches my hard-to-match skin tone!
Horrible foundation. It's thick and mask-like. So I ended up scooping out the foundation and just keeping the primer which is quite lovely,

I know I'm still relatively young to be using retinol, but I want to tame the.signs of aging early. This product feels slimy on my very oily skin, so I use just a small amount. Don't much care for the texture, and I don't get the velvety matte finish it boasts. But since it was so crazy expensive, I'm going to keep using it until it's gone. Gonna find a different retinoid after though.
This is the perfect bronzer for the fair-skinned. It has a wonderful shade when applied and a gorgeous golden shimmer. The only bronzer I'll ever need.

It saddens me that such an expensive product doesn't work. It doesn't firm, help fine lines, or help dark circles. It's just pricey and smells nice. I've been using this product day and night for over three months, and nothing has happened at all; so I've given it enough time. Time to move on.
Not really that good. The brush is horrid; I had to scavange a better brush from a clear mascara I was throwing away to apply this product with. Doesn't curl my lashes or dye them. Smells bad too. I do like how it emphasises my lower lashes tho, and I do like the color selection. But I don't like how runny and wet this product is. It's ruined my eyeshadow several times now. But I do like it when I wear it alone. I'd buy it again, but in a different color. I didn't have any problem with flakes; I clean my lashes before putting mascara on, so no problems there. Really pretty packaging. Just wish the folks at Hard Candy would improve the formula.

I've found the perfect moisturizer for me! It's lightweight, has an spf, and really helps with my oily skin. My favorite thing about this product is that after it drys, my skin doesn't spout ludicrous amounts of oil again like it does with other moisturizers. My skin actually stays dry, yet soft. And after living my whole life with very oily skin...this felt like the answer to my prayers. It's pricey, yes, but so worth it to me. Plus, no preservatives!

I really like this eye gel. I didn't get immediate results like the label claimed, but I did get some definite results after using it for just a week. The puffiness in my eyes has definitely been reduced, and the dark circles are gradually fading away. The beginnings of crows feet are lessening as well. This is a product you have to use continually to see results with, typical results being in 4-6 weeks like all other eye creams/gels. I've only had to use a tiny bit with each application (about the size of a rice grain), and I can tell I'm going to have this product for a LONG time before I have to replenish it. I use it AM/PM and I'm liking what I see. I haven't had any issues with stickiness; in fact, since I have very oily skin, the gel feels a lot cleaner than a cream would.
Got this product with the Sephora Buildable Cover Complexion Kit in Light. Really really surprised and pleased with the results, since I really haven't worn much facial makeup due to past experiences. The concealer covers my dark circles very well as well as illuminates. Also covers the redness around my nose and cheeks. You have to wait a minute or two for the "building" effect to work right, but other than that, it's a fantastic product. Light, doesn't seem to clog my pores, covers well. I'd very much buy this product again.
