It's not bad, it's just that for the price I'd it to be the only cleanser I use at night to clean my face. I find that it takes off most of my makeup, including waterproof mascara, but I still need another product to remove everything. It hasn't been a problem for my cystic acne-prone face and it hasn't caused any breakouts but I'm not sure that it's as effective as I'd like it to be.
Love this shampoo! It leaves my hair shiny without looking oily, and it cleans well. It's not drying and is great for everyday use.

This is a nice shade of red lipstick -- not too loud but is still bold. The color lasts all day and, best of all, it doesn't dry out my lips!

Absolutely love this lipstick! The color works very well with my skin tone (fair-medium); it's not sticky; and it lasts as well as can be expected from a sheer lipstick. I suspect my current tube won't last very long!
I'm impressed with how well something so gentle and non-greasy can remove eye makeup so well. Definitely a winner!

I used this cleanser for about a year, thought I'd try something else, and am ready to go back. It helped clear up my blackheads and whiteheads, evened out my skin tone and wasn't too drying. Although I know that cystic acne is hormonal, I was hoping against hope that some potion out there could help clear it up so I switched to MD Forte which made my skin look great for about a week -- minimized pores and cleared up my pimples -- and then my skin started breaking out again and my pores weren't tightening anymore. I'm going back to what I know works and this is it.
I use this brush to apply blush and it does so beautifully! It's bristles are soft and the price is right!
Liquid or gel eyeliner used to be unwearable because my hands shook and I couldn't draw a straight line. The shape of this brush allows for perfect application.
I never realized what a difference a good makeup brush could make! Eyeshadows -- especially in the crease -- never seemed to go on well so I "researched" brushes and after reading the reviews here, decided to take a chance and spend the big bucks. It was well worth it! It's very soft and is great for applying and blending eyeshadow. I've since bought other Smashbox brushes and am equally as happy with them.
Although this mascara lengthens and adds volume to my lashes, it flakes and smudges.

The BEST! It makes my lashes look longer and a bit thicker while still appearing natural. And it truly is waterproof; no smudging with tears or sweat. The only downside is that because it's so waterproof, it sometimes can be difficult to remove.
No matter what type of brush I use to apply it, this powder makes my face look ghostly white. The packaging is awful -- it makes it difficult to apply the powder without making a mess. I'm trying something else.

I have combination skin and I find this product not only stings, but causes me to break out. Also, I can't stand the smell.
