I use it as a spot treatment. Initially, i use it all over my face. I saw improvement in the first 3 days. Then nothing happened. I kept using and using but it nothing on my acne. So i was really dissapointed. But because i didn't want to waste on the product, i use it as a spot treatment. The pimple is gone in 1-3 days. It worked on blackhead, whitehead and when you feel pimple coming up. So i like this product but i won't be repurchasing it. I will buy better spot treatment. The pimple was gone but it left a dark spot. hyperpigmentation..
This is probably the only treatment which i saw an improvement on my acne. I brought it from a recommendation from a esthetician. She said in the first 4 weeks, my skin will show more blemish/acne because the product is working in my skin, but after you will see improvement. She was right. i did see an improvement. My skin appears more clearer than before. What's left on my skin is some hyperpigmentation from the blemish and certain pimple that always come back on the same spot. My skin is less red than before. I'm just happy my acne is actually healing itself. It takes time. You can't ever pick on the pimple. All your effort will be wasted because what's the use of aggravating it. The mistake i did is as soon as my skin was pimple free. I used Arcona the solution to treat the hyperpigmentation left by the pimple. I got break-outs and i had to repeat the whole process of 4 weeks of exfoliating all the impurities, etc. And i used non comodogenic makeup... So to keep and to gradually improve your nearly-pimple free skin, you can't stop the treatment. It's a long time commitment. I once didn't put any treatment on my face, and my acne was so bad, my skin is red, etc. So i will always repurchase this product since i lost faith on my dermatologist. The only inconvenient is how it sits on your skin. It's like oily residue sitting on your skin. So i only use at night. Also i recommend using a spot treatment if you feel a pimple coming up. This product improve most of your skin but there's always this annoying pimple that come up. my skin routine consist of alpha h balancing cleanser, avene cleanance k and la roche posay effaclar k (for my spot, it supposed to do the same thing as cleanance k, but it didn't work for me. I didn't want to waste the product so i put a dap of the product on a pimple. After 3 days, the pimple is gone. But in my case, when a pimple is gone, it leave a dark spot --- hyperpigmentation.) i have been using this product daily for 2 months and still using it. There's some stubborn pimple that needs more time. So i hope in 2 months, something will dissapear. Hope it was helpful for some of you. Also i have combinaison skin, but it gets oily when it's my time of the month.
it broke me out! i though i found a good foundation. I have combinaison skin. I usually break out on my t-zone because of the oilyness and i break out on my cheeks because of makeup. I broke out so many times on my cheeks when i used this powder. I cleanse with my clarisonic with Alpha H balancing cleanser. My primer consist of my moisturizer and sunscreen. I didn't feel the need to put another layer of primer because i have to be gentle on my skin. Didn't treat my acne at all. So i stopped using for 1 month, my skin looks better. i wouldn't recommend someone who's looking for a non comodogenic makeup. I look up on the internet, never saw the word non comodogenic on their website except on forum but we know it's not reliable sometimes. I used Clinique foundation, Makeup forever and Cover fx. Everything broke me out. Covering my imperfection seems impossible
Pratice makes perfect. That is the case with this nail polish. i never had so much trouble putting nail polish. Maybe because it's sheer so i always messed up. You have to put two coats because you can still see the pink of your nails after one coats. If you put more than two coats, the coverage is even but it's not pretty. But i do like the results, my nail are a bit longer and after i put two coats of nail polish, my nails looks like ballet slippers (the pink looks like your foot and the white are the shoes) because it's sheer, it created the illusion i have ballet slippers on my hand I'm glad i bought this color, but it's so so hard to put this nail polish because the formula sucks. So i only do 3 streaks and hope i suceed, if i do more, it's ruined and i have to do it again. I'm glad i work hard for the result, i have ballet slippers on each finger so in my opinion, i would give 5/5 for the results but 1/5 for the application and you need 99% of your concentration to create the ballet slippers on your hands
Mine smudge on my eye... Though this mascara delivers eveything i wanted: lenght, volume, my lashes are evenly coated and seperated, and it's soft (it's not hard so it's confortable) but i have so much smudging with this mascara. I have smudging problem with every mascara i had to date (lancome virtuose, clinique high impact, dior show, ... etc) . i have to wipe off the smudging every 2 hour. But this mascara is my FAVORITE, they beat all department store mascara i ever own. I have asian eye and it's so hard to keep the curl up but this, i guaranteed that it's a good one i wish it didn't smudge, i even bought waterproof....

it's overall good, dislike a little but okay what's good: - it smells nice but weak - little of shimmer, not to much which i like what's bad: - it's like lipgloss, sticky, heavy gloss on your lips - not the best lips treatment ever - in winter, it freeze and i have to touch it with my hand so it would have this glossy feeling again - when you apply it with your finger, it has this sticky feeling and i have to go each time to the bathroom to apply the lip balm because i wouldn't want the sticky feeling on my finger to stay and i have to wash all the time. overall: i already bought 2 because it was on sale and i never tried it before. but i wouldn't buy it again because it's not convenient to apply it any place because the lipbalm will stay on your finger and you have wipe it off with something. buy it if you want something that smells good, it does but doesn't taste like it
i have the canadian version softlips and the logo is so different and uglier than the us version. but i love the product, sure you have to apply it every hour or so but if you want treatment for your chaplips, this is the product to use. in winter, my lips are very chapped and i need intense treatment. i always bought softlips and i still love. the appearance is pretty and it SMEELLS soooooOO good. if it's tangerine orange, it smell like tangerine orange, if it's melondew, it does smell like it and the french vanilla is soo good. when you apply it on your lips, it gives this fresh feeling to your lips and the results is very sastifying.
Liquid -Clinique - Superfit Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

sorry if my english if bad. i already finish this foundation. From my opinion if was a okay foundation. Good about it: - it wasn't oily so i like it a lot. i have acne and didn't give lots of breakout (maybe some, but i was sweating) - you can feel it's a little heavy on your skin but for me the importance it wasn't oily or it would fail to be a oil-free foundation - the foundation does stay on your skin for a long time but not for 8 hours of so. little if left about 8 hours. - Where i live, there's snow and windy, the foundation does stay on your face all day. i don't know if cold weather affect the foundation XD - when you apply the foundation, the cap is resistent and a small hole let the foundation pour from the bottle (the english must be horrible =P) What i think it was bad about the product was the smell. it does go away after 2 or 3 hours but i can't stand the smell. i put it everyday and i have to smell this scent in class so it distracted me. i wouldn't buy it because of the smell only - i'm not an expert at foundation but it's bad when you have white clothes and when you touch your face on your white clothes, it would stain the clothes easily. Overall, it does delivered what it says it would but i can't stand smelling the product every single day and staining my white clothes (even my coat is white) I would recommend buying it but i garantee there's a weird smell coming with it
i like this mascara, i apply one coat and i didn't have to apply another one. i had trouble with eyeliner in the past but this one is definetly a good eyeline. it stayed longer than an hour but it did smudge. overall, i would repurchase this eyeline but i would want to spend my money other than this eyeliner. if you want a good eyeliner, i would recommend this one, but there are other better than this.
HOrrible! i hate this eyeliner Pros: it provided with a sharpener, like the design Cons: When i apply it, i had to apply it 3-4 times to have the black color on my waterline. and it fade out 30min i applied. i reapply (3-4 times) and it stayed for an hour and it smudge. i looked like i have dark circles. i heard it was a good eyeliner so i brought but i made a big mistake. didn't like at all. waste of my money
Pros: The result is sastifactory. It lenght my lash, gives volumes... i just love the result, doesn't clump Cons: The applicator is to big, it's too hard to apply, especially when you are new to cosmetic. This was my first mascara and i didn't like very much. It was so hard to apply with the big applicator, so i often mess up. the result were fine but it didn't have the wow factor. In my opinion, if you want your lash «blast», give it a try, but there's mascara better than this one.
Honestly, i didn't like this mascara very much. I read in Cosmogirl that it was a very good mascara. So i bought it hoping it will make some wonders on my lash. The minutes i tried it, i regretted it. People! Don't ever buy this mascara! you will be dissapointed
