After Reading all the Conflicting reviews I just HAD to try this mascara. And the verdict is i am very impressed. (I compare new mascara's to my HG Dior show blackout to determine if they are good or not) The reviewer who mentioned it was dry was right on. Like when i first opened it i was shocked to see how dry it was. Literally it looked to be at the point where i know my other mascaras are finished.. But that is just the way this one is. It took several coats but this stuff builds well and dramatically lengthened and darkened my lashes. Only a tad thicker looking which is the look i prefer. Didn't notice any smell and didn't irritate my eyes at all during the day. As far as clumps go i noticed tiny ones and easily smoothed them out with the last coat of mascara. I liked that it held a curl well and that the formula was very dark. Also didn't smear or smudge on me.. Thank god! I really like this stuff; and for $8 it might be my new HG. The only thing i am worried about is how long the mascara will last (like not get any drier) I'll have to edit this post when the mascara is finished.

I bought This Product after trying the sample from Allure Magazine. It really gives a dewy glow to the face and seems to make my blemishes less noticeable. I like to use this product on days i don't feel like wearing makeup to give me something a little '"extra". Its a tiny pump container but for $7.00 I can't complain much. One thing I don't care for is how thick this stuff is. I tried using it over my foundation on a few spots as a highlighter; wouldn't recommend that. I just looked strange. Also wouldn't recommend using on a "day two" unclean face as it makes you look even oilier. Bottom line is I like to use this product but only in select situations. I can see how this product may be way more appealing to someone with dryer more mature skin. It's thick.
This little kit is awesome! I use it everyday. I have meduim color brown hair and pale skin. I used to use the anistasia brow pen with the light brow gel on top. It was a pretty expensive combo but after fooling around this pallete at ulta i decided to give it a try! I love the eye bright included in the kit for disscising dark circles. I also really love the brow gel abd lighter powder which i find plenty dark for my brows. But my very favorite part of this kit isnt the brow stuff at all... i love the highlighter! I used the powder all over to sculpt my face! The mini tweasers are great too. Don't really care for for the eyeliner included but it isnt why i bought the pallete so its ok. Overall i will definatly repurchase this kit as long as its availible!
I love this product! I use it inconsistently... and after using it twice my dark spots from acne of years past are completely gone. I was amazed and am now experimenting with it as a facial lightener... expect an update UPDATE: This is the best Product out there for the money. I Love it. And I was just reading in mew beauty that it contains the purest form of vitamin c available in a topical, and that it was voted a best product in 9 magazines. All the competing products are over $50.. This is a great buy!

Wow! This tool is amazing! When i bought this i was reading alot about the clairisonic systems. I was sceptical whether one needs a machine to cleanse their face; and i thought if i like this i will then save for its more expensive counterpart. Now i am convinced that you do need a tool, but no need to pay top dollar this one is great! The first package i puchased from walmart had a broken tool, but after exchanging it and using this great tool for only 4 days i notice a difference. Let me say i have been using it 2 times a day with the cleanser that came with it, then following with my salicilic acid treatment. I have always been acne prone so it was no suprise that i broke out immediately following the first use. But remarkebly my skin was completely clear the following evening and still is. Also it takes a few times to get used to how harsh the brush feels on your skin, especially on the cheeks. (But remember this brush is softer and smaller than clairisonics) my skin looks brighter, more even, and my pores look non existant. I dont feel like i need foundation anymore, and i used to spackle that stuff on. My skin is soft as a babies bottom and i love how my moisturizer sinks right in now rather than sitting on the top for a few mins. I believe everyone can benefit from this product afterall its like getting a mini facial everyday.

This is a great product that really minimizes the appearance of large pores. I love it.
I love this product!! I have sensitive skin that is also acne prone and in the past I've had problems finding something that looks perfect with medium coverage and doesn't make me breakout like crazy. I've used everything from bare minerals to Dior skin flash. But everything came up short. This stuff is the best i have ever found! i will never use anything else! I love it!
