As a stylist this is by far my favorite haircare line in general, but I have been a using this product for several years now and it's amazing! I shampoo, blowdry daily and have color treated hair. Yes, even at my discount it's pretty pricey, but worth it.

I'm shocked at the bad reviews for this product. I am 33 and have super sensitive eyes and skin overall(eczema, dermatitis and allergies to colors/dyes and just about laundry product out there) and this does not bother my eyes at all! I actually love it. I dont' use it daily though, just every other day. I like that it's not greasy or heavy and tightens my undereyes. Would recommend and buy again.

I've been using this entire line for over a month now and can't believe the difference in my skin! I am 33 and acne prone(adult acne) within a week of using this line(this cream is my fav) my pores shrunk, skin is smooth and NO BREAKOUTS . Not greasy not heavy, sinks right in. I took off a star for packaging as a pump would be better.
I've been using glimmersticks for years and won't use anything else. I have sensitive eyes and wear contacts. I use both regular and waterproof versions in cosmic brown/chocolate brown
Best lipglosses for the price. I have just about every shade. Tickled pink is a favorite pinky/gold for my fair skin. I also have Mirage, Iced Pink, Berry Cool(my fav but they disc it!), Rave, Intense Plum, Peach Fizz(they disc this one too!), and Darling Pink. I'm anxious to try some new fall colors!
I have super short and sparse lashes naturally and this mascara works wonders! it does not give immense volume or thickness, and in no way(for me anyhow) lives up to the "falsies" name. But for me it serves it purpose. I love it and will keep using it for as long as they make it.
I bought into the "guilt" part of this line .I feel badly now that I even had a party and invited people to buy this stuff! I bought the RE9 kit(along with other makeup items), was told it was going to be good for my acne/sensitive skin. It made it worse. After the "45days" was up it still just sat in my cabinet and I figured I was just out $200 BUT my dh urged me to contact the sales rep and tell her how upset I was with them. I did, and she took back the products gave me the acne care line(which I DO like alot, but for the $ I can buy OTC products that are just as good) a good basic moisturizer and some oil. I had no reactions to them at all, however I will not repurchase or encourage anyone else to. Thankfully I had a great rep that even though could be very pushy(tried to get me to sell this at our salon,etc.) was very understanding with the return(s).
First of all, I've never found another brand that matches my exact skintone like MK does. In the past I've use their cream to powder, Dual coverage and Med coverage in Ivory 100. In the summer I can wear Ivory 200, I'm rather pale with freckles. I've used MANY mineral makeups, only finding one that really was worth re-ordering. So learning that MK was making one made me so happy! I've only tried this one day, but am loving the immediate results. It only took one application, a bit of extra buffing with my concealer brush over reddness/blemish areas. Very nice product, but not so sure it should be called "mineral" makeup since it doesn't really qualify as one with some of the ingredients. But is a great product none the less.
I have fallen in love with Luminesse, so trying the Cashmere was going to be a tough sell IMO. However, I did like it enough to buy a full size, a shade darker than I wear in Luminesse since Cashmere runs closer to color with Velvet Veena. The feel is light and smooth. I've had compliments that my skin looked "flawless" "airbrushed" and like "your skin only better" It if definately more matte than the Luminesse that I am used to, but not a bad thing when I use a radiance over it anyhow. I've had no issues with staying power, but also don't have time to look in the mirror much in the day.
So far this product has helped clear up my skin w/out drying it out like no other product has ever done. It definately helps reduce redness of past acne marks and leaves my skin toned and smooth. I'll be buying a second tube. UPDATE~ I am on my second tube of this. My skin is still doing great with it. However, I need to apply it everyday, if I miss a day my skin seems to react by breaking out. So I will keep using it!
My skin tends to look orangey with bronzers but this is great for my fair skin, used AS a bronzer/blush. It did NOT make me orange. Fine particles, not shiny or glittery, just a perfect "glow" to my skin whether I'm wearing mmu or not.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Cleanser

Great for my aging yet acne prone skin. No irritation to my normally sensitive skin. Must have the right amount of AHA/BHA to balance. I'll keep using it as long as they make it.
My first try with Lumiere was VV. I fell in love with the creamy texture and a perfect match to my skin tone, very tough to do! I alternate it with my Luminesse which I've also come to love. I prime with Sand Silk powder and finish with it after I apply my VV foundation. I am acne prone and have had no additional breakouts from the makeup.
After trying Velvet Veena and loving it, I gave Luminesse a go. LOVE IT! After only two days trial I ordered a full size. I go back and forth between the two formulas, mostly Luminesse for everyday.My skin has gone through some changes being pregnant and I've not found either formula to cause me problems, even with my sensitve finicky skin. I've tried many many other brands of MMU and have to say Lumiere is the best I've found so far.
