I'm shocked there aren't any raving reviews for this miracle product! I've had very oily and acne-prone skin since sixth grade, and I've tried pretty much everything. Some products did okay but never solved my problems completely. I got this at the organic grocery store, and just within a couple days, my skin was super soft and most of my blemishes are gone! It's almost like it speeds my skin's healing process as well. It's heaven sent.

I just got this last night, and I'm obsessed. Having this product is like putting on a pair of glasses for the first time--you don't realize how much you've been missing until you use it. It does take practice, and I use the slanted sephora brush. But it looks natural and stays put all day. Like the other reviewers said, it's extremely economical, as well, since you only need the very tiniest amount.

I really wish they would bring this back. It was the most amazing fragrance. But I finally found a dup!! It's Sexy Little Things Noir Love Me from Victoria's Secret. I normally wouldn't let out a secret like that, but the more sales the more likely they won't discontinue!!!

I just bought the body mist version of this since the travel size is going for ten bucks right now. I've been looking for a scent similar to Magnolia Blossom (RIP) from Bath and Body Works, and I've FINALLY found it!! It's so soft and feminine yet still sexy. I'm in love. My new HG!! I really hope they don't discontinue this. I've never tried the original, so I'm not sure how it compares, but it smells heavenly.
My HG mascara! The only other mascara that I've tried that compares is MAC and Dior. It's hard to believe it's so cheap. Most of these new mascaras and brushes don't give enough product. Obviously, I'm one for the dramatic look. If you're going for natural, this isn't the product for you. Perfection.
To be honest, I bought this for the simple love of the vintage packaging, and the color is so precious. The hue is very unexpected for a drugstore brand. I had absolutely no expectations that this would actually look good on me. I'm medium-toned, so not everything does. It's now my new obsession. It instantly makes you feel like a pin up girl and really brightens the face. I wear it with just a tad blush, liquid eyeliner, and mascara. I'm obsessed!!
OMG, GORGEOUSSSS!!! I work at Bonedaddy's, it's like a Hooters with Texas bbq, and I wear this on every shift. SO many men notice it, and I get compliments all day! I put this on my lower last line then compliment it with a cat eye using black liquid liner on my top, then lots of mascara. It's a beautiful shade and stays on very well. It's not supposed to be waterproof, but I wore this at the pool all summer because it wouldn't come off when I got in the pool. Everytime I run out, I immediately buy a new one.
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

This is my favorite drug store foundation. It's what I've been using since I've become too broke for MAC or NARS foundations. I'm latina and the 300 Sand matches beautifully. But one thing I do find strange is I'm not a very-dark skinned latina, yet I match the darkest shade! So if you are ethnic, keep that in mind. It is pretty heavy, so use a light hand and blend, blend, blend. It lasts all day, not 25 hour all day, but all day.

I have this in Sexy Intrigue and it is DIVINE!!! The scent is so amazing and sexy. The only complaint is, make sure you are thoroughly clean and dry before applying or it tends to clump, but other than that, it works great. I'm looking for the body mist now.

Eye Shadow -Rimmel - Colour Rush Eyeshadow Quad, Smoky Noir

I agree these aren't very pigmented and seems to just fall off after a while, just what you should expect from cheap eyeshadow. The applicator is super cheapy but the skinny end has been useful in applying highlighter in my inner corners with other shadows. The only useful one is the black to put over black liner to make it last a little longer.
Loose Powders -MAC - Iridescent Powder - Golden Bronze

I use this everyday, def a HG product. Since I'm pretty tan, I first put on my regular pressed bronzer, apply blush, then lightly put this over the blush, eyelids, and a tiny tiny bit on my nose. It gives an LA, playboy look, very very gorgeous. A little bit goes a long way and i cant see myself running out even though I use it all the time. I dropped this one day and spilled a lot of it, and I'm still not running out anytime soon. Worth every penny!
The packaging is adorable and the main reason I bought this. The brush lengthens and is great for coating every lash. You need patience, though, since the brush forces you to take a little longer than usual since it doesn't cover a large area at once, but the results are worth it. My lashes looked and extra long and spikey, very glam. I agree with other reviews that it's easy to miss the tube and get it all over your hand when you try to put the brush bach in the tube when you're too busy staring at yourself. My main complaint is it doesn't seem like it comes with much product b/c I always run out pretty quick.
Not bad. The smell is clean but last for 2 seconds out of the shower. The texture is nice, and there's a ton of slather which I love. The package is cute, but I've still had better.

Love it. I love to put it on at night after a shower while my skin is still damp and then put some sweatpants on. In the morning my skin is supersoft. It smells nice, I love the pump, and a the consistency makes it fun to put on.
