AWESOME :) It really is like a facelift in a pen. Swiped and blended under my eyes, on outer cornes, around the nose and on Cupid's bow and I look SO radiant, but naturally. I'm fair/medium, of Colombian and Luxembourgois decent.

Reasons this product is awesome: 1) It makes every foundation look incredible. I haven't bought a new one in months because all of my rejects look fantastic when applied over this primer. It eliminates cakiness, transferring, fading, creasing...pretty much every problem one could have with a foundation. 2) It is a great morning moisturizer for combo/oily skin. It smoothes and gets rid of mild dryness. It also provides a great barrier against foundation (for instance, CS Whipped doesn't break me out layered over this!) 3) It's cone-free yet it WORKS. Most cone-free primers aren't effective at all, but silicone based ones clog me to death. It's so nice to find one that gives the glow and lasting power of Smashbox and Hourglass without the breakouts. 4) It's vegan and 100% cruelty free 'Nuff said. :D All of the OCC Skin products I've tried have been fantastic, but this is a total HG. I don't think anything else has ever made this much of a difference in my makeup application. I get compliments on my skin all the time using this.
Perfect MLBB. I love the glossy, light finish too; I'm 19 and don't want to look caked in makeup. It is SO easy to apply, I can do it in the dark and it looks flawless. It isn't moisturizing, but it isn't drying either. I usually keep my lips coated 24/7 with the EOS ball in Tangerine for the winter, so that takes care of the moisture. Its by far my favorite lippie to wear for every day!
I received this in the Sephora Birthday set along with a mini Watts Up! highlighter. I was skeptical about They're Real because I have seen it look absolutely awful on a few friends who raved about this mascara. However, they may just have naturally bad lashes because I really like this! I have long, wispy, naturally curled lashes and I like how this mascara fans them out around my eye. It doesn't smudge all day, even through a workout and without eye primer. It definitely gives more length and volume than I am used to; I haven't tried building it up past one coat and I don't think I want to lol. Overall I am pretty impressed, especially by the way it doesn't smudge. I don't think I've ever had a mascara hold up as well as this. Unless it severely disappoints me later on, I would purchase the full size. EDIT: It dried out after only a week and my lashes looked terrible. Too thick and spidery, and since it was dryer I couldn't control the application well. Not the right mascara for me, sorry.
Fantastic product. I have combo-dry sensitive skin, and a lot of dark spots left over from acne. The ingredients are stellar and I've experienced no breakouts or irritation with it. I apply with a dry Beauty Blender (my foundation brush left it cakey and awful) and I get the same finish as if I used a lighter coverage makeup, but so much more coverage! I usually only need concealer on a couple of spots with this foundation, as opposed to a dozen when I use a lighter coverage foundation. I'm an NC25 right now and 48 matches me flawlessly. The packaging is also beautiful and effective; my SO got me a vanity for Christmas and the bottle looks luxurious sitting on top of it, and the pump feature lets you perfectly control the amount you want (half a pump to 3/4 is perfect for me). I highly recommend, and will be purchasing a darker shade once summer rolls around so I can mix and have my perfect match all year :) EDIT: I discovered that mixing half a pump of this with a drop of OCC Skin Primer makes it more dewey and less crease-y (I had a problem with that around my mouth). However, it still settles into my pores and looks really gross. Its easily fixed with powder though, so I will still keep this at 5 stars. It is the perfect full coverage foundation.
The clothing is horribly cut and cheaply made, but priced like its luxury. The ad campaigns exploit their models and promote an unhealthy body image and the sexualization of young teenagers. Plus the cologne they drench the stores in makes me break out in a rash even if I stand outside the place.
I already have decent sized breasts (30DD), but a friend and I got these as a joke during the last Semi-Annual Sale. I've only worn it twice, to a bar and a concert, and both times got me a lot of attention from guys, but not in a good way--my SO actually punched a drunk guy who was trying to grab them at a concert. I got a 32C, but a 32D wasn't an option. I wish it were because I CANNOT breath in this thing!! My boobs also get squished out of the top. However, I'm giving it 3 stars because my friend, who's a 32A, swears by this bra and it looks really good on her. She's a runner and when she wears this bra her figure is like a supermodel's. Plus its kind of fun to be able to jack your boobs up whenever you want.
I'm a 30DD. I've been told by VS "measuring experts" that I'm everywhere from a 32B to a 34D. My stupid teenage self didn't know any better not to buy those ill-fitting bras, so now I have a bunch of tacky bras in the wrong size chilling in my closet back home. Now I wear Calvin Klein, Wacoal and Chantelle. They fit better and I don't have to wear dark shirts all the time now to cover up the neon VS bras.
