Im almost at pan with this product. Its so fantastic. It corrects wonderfully. I have fairly light skin and I purchased it in 'light bisque' and it does wonders to correct the purplish-blue circle I have in the inner corner of my eye. It creases slightly if It isnt buffed in and set, but other than that..this creamy corrector will definitely be repurchased.

I don't know where exactly I stand with this product. I read all the hype about it, and I thought I should at least try it. First of all, the colour range is quite excellent...so no complaints there. I have combination/oily skin and apparently this product is oil free so I considered it a product that was suitable for my skin tone. The first time I applied it, my skin did look very nice (when photographed). I noticed that my blemishes were a lot less apparent than before, my skin looked even and fairly matte, and I had very little shine. However, after the first application..I started to notice that the foundation would sort of 'hover' over my skin. And what I mean by this is, that it seemed like it would not blend into my skin. I don't think it was my application of it, because I would buff it in, and I started to notice shine throughout the day. I want to love this foundation because of all of the reviews, but I will probably only wear it when I need to be photographed due to its ability to look very nice on camera.

Always repurchase this. I love Rosebud. It keeps my lips super hydrated, and its great that its a multipurpose balm as well. The only thing that I have against this product, is the fact that it comes in a tin, which is a little unsanitary. I also have the squeezy tubes and tins of both this in the original, and strawberry. Its the better smelling version of Vaseline, and it works wonders.
For such a 'revolutionary' and apparent world renowned mascara, I think it is absolutely terrible! It's runny, it clumps, its brush is terribly designed and is extremely small. The only thing that is praise worthy about this mascara, is its ridiculously low price. Which, in my opinion, is warranted considering this mascara is a pice of garbage.
I really love this blush. -The shimmer is very subtle, it doesn't have flecks of the gold like Super Orgasm does, it seems like its micro-milled, giving the cheeks a natural flush and glow -The peachy/gold shade is suitable for nearly every skin type -It is very complimentary and natural -It is very blendable and is fairly pigmented, which means that you don't need to use many layers of it -the product lasts a LONG time, Which is fantastic considering it is a fairly expensive blush to invest in. I've had my blush for a few years now, and I have yet to hit pan. I'm fairly frugal with my money so this blush was somewhat of an investment, but it was worth it considering how long it has lasted me. I would definitely buy this product again..even though I do not know when that will be considering I still have so much product left. Also: Consider buying the Orgasm Illuminator, it is SO beautiful.
For a full coverage powder foundation, this does justice. I have combination/oily skin but I also have some acne. It is a full coverage with a fairly large colour range. Depending on the type of brush used to apply it, the coverage can vary. I avoid the sponge that comes with it due to hygienic reasons and because it tends to 'cake' on the product. I found that when I used my 'Bare Minerals I.D Kabuki Brush', I was able to achieve a build-able, medium-full coverage, without cake-ness. It lasts a long time, the package isn't very bulky, and it works very well.
