This is an amazing bronzer! I have olive skin and this is very subtle on my cheaks and really adds nice definition instead of looking orange like Snooki. The term a little goes a long way applies here! Pros: *Subtle *Nice color *Nice packaging *Great for contouring Cons:
If you keep your powder in your purse, do not purchase this item. The packaging is very odd and this will open and crumble in your purse. The powder broke me out and sat on top of my skin, which is not a good look. Pros: Cons: *Horrible packaging *Sits on top of skin *Causes breakouts

This mascara is okay, nothing special. The makeup artist at Sephora convinced me to get this mascara over a YSL one I have been wanting. Pros: *Lengthens eyelashes *Does not smear or smudge *Very black Cons: *Makes eyelashes straight, adds no curl * Very difficult to remove *Cheap packaging

The only thing I like about this mascara is the packaging. The product inside is crap. This mascara clumps and smears on my face throught the day. It does not lengthen or add volume, I liked the Benefit mascara better.

This product does not work. I have used this for the past six months and my eyelashes are not any longer. I have found myself not using this as a primer for mascara, infact I dont think I have used it at all this month...This does not add any volume it simply clumps the lashes together. Waste of money...
My esthetican recommended this sereum for my sensitive acne prone skin. I used two of the little samples up and decided to purchase the full size product. Beware, the full size product cost $80! I am seeing results with this product, my skin is currently acne free. This product will make your face peel like crazy, worse than retin A! Overall, this product does give results, it just gets worse before it gets better.
This product is alright. My esthetician convinced me to purchase this because at the time I was not using suncscreen. This product does have a tint to it so it does provide some coverage. This sunscreen goes well under makeup because it doesnt give a greasy feeling, however it is somewhat drying. As a sunscreen it works nicely.

This product worked wonderfully. Squirt two pumps in your hand and massage it into your face and onto your eyes before getting your face wet and it will grab every ounce of makeup off of your face! This product made the makeup removal process a breeze. Unfortunately this product made me break out with cystic acne the next day I used it. If you do not have sensitive skin run to your local Sephora to purchase this! -I have very sensitive skin that breaks out to most products.
This eyeshadow is great! It is finely milled with no fallout which makes it feel silky smooth. The color is a mix between grey, brown and purple. Very nice quality!
I have no complaints about this eyeshadow! The quality of Nars eyeshadows is far more surperior when compared to MAC eyeshadows. Fez is a coppery color that is finely milled, silky smooth with no fallout. Nars makes MAC seem grainy.
This foundation was applied on my face by a makeup artist at Sephora who did a wonderful job. When I got home my boyfriend told me how nice I looked and how pretty my face looked. The next day I went back and bought it. I have found that this looks better when applying it with a sponge instead of a brush because it looks less streaky. Make sure you blend the foundation in all of the way and set it with some powder and you will have a glowing face. Pros: *does not break me out *great for winter *satin finish Cons *poor packaging *can be streaky *expensive
I bought this about a week ago and I must say it definately gets the job done. The felt tip allows for an easy application process the only con I see with this is that a lot of product comes out on the tip so you have to rub it on the side of the container, other than that no complaints; great for a dramatic look.
I really like this blush, a lot better than I liked Orgasm. This blush is a deep color that shows up on my skin unlike orgasm. Be careful though, if you put too much of this on it will look like someone punched you on the cheek!
This is my first "high end" mascara, if it even considered to be high end and also first Benefit puchase. I must say this marcara does deliver, the quality is definately better than drugstore mascaras but I am not sure if it is 22 dollars worth. The pros about this mascara is that it definately lengthens and thickens lashes without flaking, I also like how the brissles reach all of the hard to get lashes...but I dont know, I am just not completely sold on this one...still searching!

I bought this after seeing the glowing recomendations on MakeupbyTiffand's youtube channel, I thought her face always looks perfect so why not purchase it. That was a big mistake! While using this for a week and a half this foundation has given me 6 large cystic pimples that are very painful!! Not to mention the consitancy of the foundation is very pastey and difficult to blend into the face which as a result leads to a cakey/ flakey look. I hate this foundation.
