- it feels nice on - wears fairly well - lux packaging - no pigment though, hard to blend. No color payoff. Really only good for a lighter shadow look. I will happily keep and wear it, but you cannot do an evening look with this and I won't bother repurchasing it.

Wow, can you say fire on the skin?! I had the worst reaction to the product. I can use a lot of products and rarely react to anything. Tca peels , glycolic etc. But this one gave me numb lips and welts. Skin was on fire and swollen by 5am. I awoke in pain from it. Clearly I am allergic to some of the botanicals. So if you react to botanicals be aware of this one. I needed cortisone and Benadryl after this one. Swiftly returned. Still 16 hours later my face is on fire and itchy.
Wow. I love this foundation. I never would have tried except I received a sample in a magazine. I love love it. Wears very well, all day. I have oily skin but this makes my skin glow without being shiny. Nice coverage. Doesn't settle in fines lines either. A definite must try for the price Recently bought the full size. I am totally hooked still. Love how long it wears. Got a friend hooked on it too and we both normally like more expensive foundations

Love love the lux packaging. The colors are the prefect shades of taupey- grey. Nice pigmentation. Easy to blend. Glad I splurged on this palette.
I am n my second bottle of this and while it is a luxury purchase I really love it. The scent, the feel. I dunno but it's a keeper. I find it soothing and refreshing. I've even used it on my body before bed.
I received a generous sample of this in my topbox. The color they sent me was good. This is awful though. It's so cakey and pore enhancing. Sits on top of my skin and looks awful Settles into fine lines I even tried a spray of my fresh toner over top to try and help it melt a bit more into my skin but nope. Just looks yukky on. Give this mineral make up a pass

Yes it smells like oranges. Which I equate to the smell of a cleaner. Yuk. It it nice and light and works well for oily skin. But I don't feel it really did anything for me at all. I won't repurchase because it just didn't have a wow factor for me and for the price I'd like a little wow.
I bought this ,thinking it was the much highly thought of shiseido foundation, but I guess this is actually a very recently new product . I have normal- oily skin I found the coverage on this great and loved the application. But it didn't wear well on my skin. I had super oily skin within an hour. And it oxidized to a horrible yellows orange color that was too dark. I did have it colour matched in the store too. I sent it to a friend for her to try, she also did not like it. Do not buy this if you have even slightly oily skin I would recommend this though for someone with dry skin
Great lip buffer. Minty and refreshing. Works well to buff off the dry skin. And as it is just sugar it can be licked up in a pinch. Ha. One tube lasts forever too. Good purchase.

This is like a snack. Lol very yummy lipgloss. Refreshing cinnamon and mint but not overwhelmingly strong. I love it. Fairly moisturizing and a nice shine. A must. Try purchase for the price

I really LOVE this product. Perfect shimmery sheer colour to wear under e/s or alone. My e/s lasts SOOO long with no creasing at all. Hands down my hg primer.

Love the whole Gelish system. easy to do and long lasting. My only complaint is that some colours perform very very poorly, are too sheer (The one dark blue on I had needed 4 colour coats!) no thanks. But MOST of the colours are good. The glitter coats also take too mane coats as well .

Very lovely rose scent. Not too overwhelming. Just pretty. It's soft and subtle , I even love a spritz before bed I hate the bottle- awkward to spray I wish it had a bit more staying power, but maybe that's just me Edit- update. Loving this still. I do find the scent lingers longer than I thought. It' is a fragrance I get complimented on more often than others.

Love this hand cream. Really wonderful rose scent. Smells natural to me . I love the silky clean feel it leaves on my hands and the scents lasts for a long time. I just cracked open my tube 3 days ago and am already shopping online for a backup. Definitely will be a regular item in my purse
