I bought this set after Receiving a free deluxe sample of the cleansing oil. Everything seems to break me out normally. I was a little scared of putting oil on my face. But I use it followed by the exfoliater powder, then the brightening serum, and finally the lighter of the 2 moisturizers for day and the other for night. I didn't think I'd care one way or the other for the blotting Papers since I've been using Palladio blotting papers for years. Strangely enough, they are awesome too. I can totally tell a difference in my skin after only one week. It's awesome. The only complaint is the price of the full-size, Which is why I gave it up for instead of five. I will string the sampler set out for quite a while and then probably buy another sampler set. Beautifully packaged and a handwritten note with 15% off which is why I got this one to begin with when I received the other full-size sample (There was a 15% off code in that one too) Love it
I actually really like this product. I've tried touche eclat And for the $40 price tag, I wasn't that impressed. I picked this up for about six dollars. This is the second drugstore highlighter pen I've tried. The first was by L'Oreal and I didn't like it. I don't use this by itself but rather over my foundation and light concealer under the eyes. It actually works really well and is a bargain over YSL

Agree with previous poster. Best liquid I've ever tried and I'll continue buying it but is it drying out 2 weeks after purchase? Is there a way to fix this?
This has been on my wish list for 2 years! I had watched videos, looked at reviews and tried to dupe it with what I thought it would do because of the price. I know it's not a concealor. I know it's a brightener/highlighter and you know what? I have decided ALL highlighters do the same thing. period. illuminist, high beam, and this overratede hyped up product. I would LOVE to return it to Sephora but there isnt one around me anywhere. I always buy when I go to large cities. When I wrote the Sephora website they said contact the store. Sheesh really? In Atlanta?? I have original packaging, receipt and about 3/4 of it left in #3. Perhaps I got the wrong color because the SA was obviously not knowledged in it since it just came out in their stores. Anyonewanna buy it? lol $20!

First time I used this, I was not impressed and almost went back to estee lauder double wear. Then I put the beauty blender away and applied it the way the MUA at Sephora told me. I take a squeeze of primer and a pump of the make up and mix together then use the kabuki brush to buff it in. GORGEOUS. I love it....just don't love the price
Ok i bought the Target Sonia Kashuk sponge and used it for a year and I LOVED it...then my 4 year old daughter walked off with it never to be found again. The next time I had some spare money I splurged (i had been wanting it for a year but $20??? for a sponge??) and well....I love it. It's way softer than the target sponge and gives a beautiful airbrush finish. I've only tried it with liquid foundations The only cons are the price (obviously), the ability to clean it (I didn't get the cleanser...Im cheap) and the fact that I've got 2-3 tears in it alraedy and had it less than 2 months. Still,...I love it...will buy another

ok I got suckered really with this one. Went in to get some Double Wear which I love (my first time trying it) and asked about a double wear conceealor for undereye circles. The lady raved and raved about this product and its ceramic tip which does stay cold and feels good but you don't sit there with it on your eye long enough to reap any benefits and if you squeeze then you get too much product on your undereye which is a pain to blend/wipe off and a waste of product at $58!!! Nothing more than benefit high beam which i also have and don't love as much as I thought I would either. Any highlighter will do this...put it in the fridge and then you have your cool feeling.
Eh....I prefer Mac's beauty powder in Too Chic...This seems almost too cool for me or something. I just don't get all the hype around it and gthe packaging is gross...Can we get a pump or tube please??

I don't know which of the products is doing it...I startedwith the serum and noticed immediate results...everything just looked brighter. Then ordered the 6 piece kit from QVC and I am IN LOVE! I cannot handle much retinol or acids but have had no drying, peeling,flaking etc from any of these. I was scared because some of the products have an oily feel but no breakouts and I can tell my 38 year old skin looks younger! Now if only it were cheaper P.S. I cut the pads in half...lately in thirds. it's all I need for my face and neck and they will last a lot longer. I use them morning and evening...no problems. I love you PTR
Absolutely gorgeous!! My new favorite. I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 because of the price (seriously...that much for a freaking lipgloss?? but its no different than MAC prices and I was in love with Baby sparks dazzleglass) and the fact that it doesnt seem to last very long on me...which means the tube or whatever wont last long either....but then again I have blown through 3 "tubes" of MAC baby sparks in like 2 months. Either Im a gloss eater or it just wears off easily. I have just now put it on and then sprayed my lips with urban decay all nighter so we'll see if that helps. Other than that, I ADORE it! I don't get a strong smell like others have mentioned. I use it with MAC's lipliner in dervish, followed by the lip conditioner in Petting Pink and top with turkish delight. I'm pretty tan so I was concerned it would Snooki me but it doesn't. Milky baby pink ****Added....ok what IS that nasty smell??? I think after a couple of weeks the smell comes through because it didnt have it at first. Yuck. It smells like dishwater
I have no Sephora or Ulta near me so when I went to Myrtle beach I saw tthey had both! The first day, I swam, ate lunch and headed to the stores in search of a Naked Palette. Sure I could order it...but I like immediate gratification. I stopped at Ulta first because the Sephora was a JCPenney store and I knew it would be smaller than the free standing Ulta. Found the display minus the product. The tester was there though so I got to play and become more annoyed that they were out of it. Still they had Mario Badescu products so I got to get some pink drying lotion and some benfit products so all was not lost. Drove to JC Penney, bee-lined for Sephora and got the.last.one! Came back to the beach condo but since Im on vacation I had no reason to do makeup. I tried to come up with one, lol but then the wine kicked in... Today, I had no reason to put on makeup EXCEPT for buying new products. Good enough for me. This palette is gorgeous. Smooth, velvety colors....mostly warm except the last 2 which are bluesy and cooler.I only used virgin, sidecar, toasted and sin today but I am in LOVE. These colors are exactly what I have been looking for! The blend beautifully with each other and can combine to make many different looks. I gave it 4 lippies because they've increased the price, taken away the 2 eyeliners and replaced it with a brush that I will probably use for concealor instead. Don't love it as an eyeshadow brush. DO love the packaging....looks exactly like a big chocolate bar
Let me just say that I have always been a sweater. Since my Dr put me on Adderall for attention issues it has gotten much worse. Certain Dri Roll on is incredible!! I do have to put it on 2 nights in a row before I get the wetness protection but I notice a small difference after the first night. That being said, I went to get a new bottle and saw they had a solid so I went for that. BOO. It does very little. Not sure why since it has the same ingredients but I have used it 4 nights in a row and still sweating like a pig. I have to shove rolled up kleenex in my pits at work so I can avoid the sweat rings and that KILLS the sexy look for a night out on the town. It's a bit expensive (depending on where you get it) but I am going today to shell out another $7 for the roll-on since the solid sucks. The roll on rocks! P.S. I do not have the stinging issue others do. I can feel it a small bit if i use every single night but nothing unbearable. But beware because it seals your pores to keep you from sweating...that's how it works. There are lymph nodes in your armpits and they can get clogged and form cysts. I didn't notice until in the shower one day and felt something like a golf ball way under the skin in my pit. Granted I had a blast popping the thing (I am disgusting like that lol but armpit zits/cysts can hold LOTS of stuff in them...insane amounts...sorry TMI) Could have been a coincidence but since I had been using the stuff all that week and because of the way it works I have concluded that's what caused it. Just FYI
absolutely amazing bra. I cannot WAIT for April 1st to cash in these Secret Rewards bra because I will be buying 2-3 more lol! Seriously, this is worth every penny (although I gave it a 4 for pricing because it's still freaking $50 for a dang bra!) but I will give it again...and again...and again in hot pink ;) **update...I know own the miraculous tank and bikini. WOW is all I have to say
Ive had KP on my upper arms forever and HATED it with a passion. I saw this online and wanted it SO badly (I was in grad school and broke as a joke) but I finally splurged and got it. Did absolutely nothing for me. Ver disappointing
