I have these in the shades Nude, Pearl, and Bronze. Nude is great for great as a base for my powder highlighters and blushes, but that is about it. If you find that your MSF highlighters don't show up as well on your skin, this is great for it. I originally got it because I thought it would also be good as an eyeshadow primer but it creases sooo much after about an hour. Also, it is slightly darker than my skin tone (I am around NC 20/25). I use Pearl as a highlighter for my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, and brow bone. There's not much else to say about it, it's pretty generic in terms of cream highlighters. I use Bronze in place of a powder bronzer during the summer because it lasts longer and has a soft shimmery finish which very pretty in the sun. It's a little hard to blend so you have to work quickly, I just use my fingers or sometimes a wet sponge to blend it out. Store these in a cool place, because if it gets too hot they start to separate and this clear yellowish liquid forms on top. I just wipe it off with a tissue or leave it in the fridge and it usually goes away.
My mom's a hairstylist and got this for me since both my hair and skin are so ridiculously dry. For my hair, it does what a leave-in conditioner can do without leaving my hair greasy. My hair is soft and smooth after a couple spritzes with no frizziness or tangles for the rest of the day. It's also great at preventing flyaway's during the dry winter months. For my skin, I like to spray it on my arms and legs after a day at the pool or beach because it is so refreshing without being sticky. It also is very soothing for sunburns, although I wouldn't use it on my face because of the strong fragrance. That is the only thing I don't like about this, is the heavy perfume-y scent that reminds me of the PM color protect shampoos if anyone is familiar with those. I prefer the scent of the PM kid's detangler.
I bought this because I wanted an eye-opening eyeliner that was more natural looking than wearing white eyeliner. The color is actually very similar to a concealer. The consistency of the pencil is very creamy, almost too creamy because it smudges and transfers EVERYWHERE. I applied this onto my waterline and within an hour it had transferred onto my contact lenses and became a huge mess. Because of the softness of this formula, it's hard to get a very sharp and precise application.
This is my favorite drugstore mascara! It's comparable to Maybelline's Full and Soft, however there is the added benefit of olive oil in it that makes lashes sooo soft and long after you wash off your makeup. It does not give a dramatic false lashes look, but rather a full and natural appearance. It is great for everyday wear to go run errands or going to class. I would definitely recommend this to girls in high school who are just starting out with make up.
As a primer, I find that it is too thick and creamy. It takes a long time to dry on the eyelids and feels much too heavy when you apply your usual eyeshadows on top. However, I love to use this product as a base for my under eye concealer. I have it in the shade Wheat, and the yellow undertones in it really help cancel out the purple in my under eye bags. It also keeps the concealer lasting all day without creasing. Sometimes I even use it on top of blemishes because I find it also neutralizes redness well, whatever works right?
My mom gave me my first tube of Definicils when I was twelve, it came as a free gift with purchase. This definitely set the standards for the rest of my life as to how a mascara should work. Eight years later, Definicils is still my favorite mascara no matter how many I've tried (there have been LOTS). It gives length and definition to my lashes giving me the perfect Angelina Jolie cat eye look that doesn't flake or fade over time. People are constantly asking me I'm wearing false lashes or got eyelash extensions. Some people have even touched my lashes because they didn't believe me when I said it's just Definicils! I also love that the sleek square packaging makes for easier storage in comparison to the bulky round tubes often seen from drugstore mascaras.
Initially, I loved this product. A great, affordable concealer that covers well, what more could I want? But after a week, the tube started to ooze out of the top. Then it started creasing a lot after being applied to my under eye bags. Then the final straw, the color changed! It no longer matched my skin tone (and it's not like I magically changed colors over night), so something must have oxidized or underwent some reaction. I'm disappointed considering I really wanted to like this.
I also got this from prettyandcute.com and found it to be really awesome. The formula is light which means that it can be layered with a primer/sunscreen/moisturizer underneath if you wanted to. I have a lot of issues with redness and found that this bb cream works great alongside MUFE's HD primer in green. I would recommend this to anyone who is new to bb creams.

This stuff is pretty freaking awesome. It lasts all day and night no matter what I do. I've even slept with my makeup on (sooo bad, I know!) and have woken up with perfect eyeshadow still intact with barely any smudging and nobody knows that its from the day before. This is definitely a must have!
