I was looking for a lighter moisturizer as in the summer times my face gets extremely oily and the moisturizers I normally use (Time Zone and Daily Wear) are too heavy for me in the summer. I went back and forth on this as I am not into liquid foundations (as this was explained to me what it was) and a bit apprehensive as I tend to break out quite easily. I finally broke down and bought one, the light one. When I cleanse my face, use my EL toner, the illuminating skin serum and then this, my face looks radient! It covers up my red blotches (I sometimes tend to get red, dry skin) and my acne scars that I had from when I was younger disappeared. My face was nicely matted with a hint of a glow. This did not break me out, which is a plus. And only every once in a while I will use my MAC blot powder for my forehead and nose area. The color soaks right into my skin so there is no difference in color between where I apply and where I do not. I am very happy with this product and glad I purchased. I put the price as a 3 as I felt though it has multiple benefits, it is kind of expensive BUT a lot truly does go a long way. I use maybe 2 small drops to cover my entire face and neck area. This product will truly last me a long time!

OMG I am seriously obsessed with this!!!!!!! I have tried everything to tame down my oil control/shine and since using this my face is calmer, smoother and not so oily. As it is not 100% it is pretty darn close!!! And for the price, what a bargain!!!!! I love this and using MAC blot powder here and there is perfect and not cakey. <3
I cannot believe all the negative reviews on this!!! I LOVE this mascara and I have both colors available (black and black-brown) though I wish they would make a brown-brown. LOVE how this millionize my lashes. I can't use eye curlers as my eyelashes get really damaged. This is a great mascar and did wonders for me. I am not much a of a drug store band kind of person, but this is one thing I will continue to use and buy!!!!

I really wanted to love this product. I even tried it twice. I found my match no problem (colorwise) but I could not get the coverage I wanted. It promised to cover my acne scars (which are few and are light to begin with) and it did nothing for me. The more I put on, the cakier it got. The concealer worked wonders at first but by the end of the day you could see where I had put it (and I did not put it on very heavy). This product also promised to cover rosacia. When this product didn't work for me, I gave it to my MIL who has severe rosacia and if anything it made it look worse and more noticeable. The price is ridiculous and the "freebies" that you get (such as an eye palette, etc) are not worth it IMHO. The eye palette was so sheer you really could not tell what color they were (neutrals and some purples) so I gave it to my 9 year old for playing with on the weekends when we don't go anywhere. Very expensive and didn't work for me or my mother inlaw. :( AND it was very hard to get customer service to cancel my shipment. I had to call and complain twice because they kept sending it to me and each time said, "huh, it says you are cancelled" and had to ship back and wait to get refunded on my card. I also had to call one last time after this because I didn't get the product but they charged my card anyways :/
I LOVE this product!!!! I agree with everyone else when they say it is super, squeaky shiny!!!! I love the egg shape as it allows me to get closer to my cuticle area than a regular block style that I had before. I like that there is only 2 steps rather than 4 and it really does the trick in half the time. LOVE IT!!!!! Super cheap and I bought one for each of my girls (ages 9 and 13) and they love it too :) I will continue to buy again and again!!!

LOVE the cute packaging and this was so super moisturizing to my lips even after it was worn off my lips were super smooth. I have this in Summer Fruit and Melon (Honey Dew I think) but they are both great!! Love it and my 2 daughters love them too!
I LOVE this product. It makes my hair soft, shiny (not greasy) and it takes less tme for it to dry! I think it also is helping it grow somehow because I have shoulder length hair (and my hair takes time to grow out) and after a month it is past my shoulders. I love this so much I use it ony my girls too and they cannot stop running their fingers through their hair! It also tames the frizzies too I normally get this time of year!
First off I have to start with I hate glitter polishes. I don't like the way they feel, how they are chunky, look chunky and tend to peel very easy. With that said... I LOVE Alice in Wonderland and I loved how this polish looked in the bottle. I figured if I bought it and didn't like it my 13 yo or 8 yo girls would def like it. They use it, however, I did not end up giving it to them because I did like it. I like how it wasn't that chunky and with a top coat lasted a long time especially for it being a glitter polish. Very pretty and glad I bought it!!!
I love this color and how it seems to have 10 colors in 1 (ok not really but you get what I mean!!). I love how it is silvery yet pink yet grayish and purplish. Love these kinds of polishes. I agree with others that have said prolly the best of the Katy Perry collection!

I actually bought this when B&BW had a buy one get one free in my store so I got 2 of these with my intention of giving the 2nd one either to my 13 yo daughter or as a Xmas gift (because I bought this just prior to Christmas) and I ended up keeping it! LOVE the smell, LOVE the way it made my feet feel when soaking and it left them so soft.
I normally don't like Almay products but I really had to try this and I LOVE it!!! I think it is wierd that it feels wet going on and on my brush (I don't use the one enclosed) and I like how it does seem to give me a "wake up" look. I don't think it give me the shimmery look at all. Slightly dewey maybe but definately not shimmery or glittery. It is rather sheen but I like it LOTS!

OK, first...I LOVE UD. I HATE the packaging and the little puff thingy it comes with. I don't even use. I really hate that part of it. Moving on...I opened it up by twisting the cap off and use a stipple brush to apply this. I like it because it sets my makeup, gives me an airbrushed look (even if I go without makeup that day I still get a fresh airbrushed look). I really do like this but they have got to do something with that God aweful puffy thing!!!!

I LOVE UD and so I naturally had to try this. I first tried Sin which I love. It gives such a nice subtle glow. Recently I went to Sephora and bought another (I couldn't remember which one and lucked out when I just chose one) and I chose Brown Sugar. It is a little dark for me but I am sure after a little tweaking I can get it right. I am sooo gonna get the other 2. Love it. I use it all over my face (not literally and not all at once LOL) LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!

I have rather oily, acne-prone skin and this has totally calmed things down for me. I have never had a mattifying powder that actually worked. I LOVE UD and so glad I gave this chance. LOVE IT!!!!
