Wow. I'm surprised by all the negative reviews. I'm a mascara junkie and have tried so many out there. This is literally the only one ive tried that doesn't smudge which after several mascaras I thought was impossible. I even wore it overnight to see if it would smudge and it didn't. It doesn't flake very much; over a long day there's a couple really small flakes. I also love how the mascara comes off. It doesn't dissolve when I use water, but the formula stays together almost like single hairs. I have stick straight long lashes which most mascaras also flatten back out after I curl and apply mascara. This one however keeps my curl which I also thought was impossible after several mascaras. I think most people are having trouble with clumping and uncurling lashes because I've tried several ways to apply this and I found that you have to apply little at a time and layer on to get best results. When I applied more at once, my lashes fell back down and clumped
This product is very pigmented, which is good, but because the product collects in the dry areas, it's very noticeable. I often have to exfoliate before using this. It doesn't smell very good either. This is a pretty decent product though, the matte-ness isnt too matte and keeps lift soft
when applying this primer, its very smooth and unlike most mascaras, doesnt leave lashes hard afterwards, they actually feel very soft. However, it does uncurl my lashes, which is not too suprising because most mascaras do that to me. It also doesnt dry terribly white, so if you do miss covering some areas with mascara, its not terribly noticeable. This primer did not blow me away though, its almost like using two layers of mascara, but lashes felt a lot softer and felt more conditioned.

I love this moisturizer. I have very dry skin but also get oily during the day. I haven't noticed it getting oily but it hydrates very well and i dont mind the smell, i almost like it.

This product is amazing. It hydrates so well, and disappears into the skin. It also smells very good. I use this in the morning and it makes my skin so supple. the packaging is very good too, very clean and easy to use.

This facial cream is decent. i have used it for a while and keep going back to it. I have pretty dry skin and apply lots of this. The more i use, the softer my skin gets. However, i try avoid using it in the mornings because it tends to ball up when you rub it after it dries
this cream barely makes a difference in appearance when i apply this and when i dont. It's a decent product, its not amazing or terrible. I have pretty dry skin so i put another moisturizer underneath this because this alone isnt very moisturizing. The lightest shade is pretty dark, but it's meant to give you healthy tanner look. This product doesnt really do much for me
This product was not for me. I have combination skin, mainly dry but do get shiny as the day goes. This cream gave me huge pimples! I stopped using it and wasnt sure if this was causing the pimples so i gave it another try. Sure enough, the pimples came back so i know for sure, that this was the cause. It was also really greasy so i put it on at night, but once the morning came i still felt greasy
i love this product! It's super light and pigmented and easy to blend. After a long day it still looks just as if i just put it on! i use it under eyes, on darker areas of my face, (like corners of nose and mouth), highlight and conceal scars on my face. I like how the product comes out of a twisty pen.
Mascara -Sephora - Outrageous Volume - Dramatic volume mascara

This product applies very nicelt, however i have gotten it in my eyes and is a PAIN. I actually enjoy the wand. It does volumize a lot and looks pretty good. I haven't experienced any clumping with this mascara. It also holds curl very well. However, this mascara doesn't stay on too long. It smudges and flakes off so much. maybe if you applied another mascara on top of this?
I loved this mascara for a longtime, but now i just think its decent. I curl my lashes after i apply this and the curl stays for pretty long. (if you only curl your lashes before, this mascara just puts them back to your natural curl, which makes it pointless to curl before) One day i was running in the rain for my team practice and amazingly this did not smudge at all!!! but, the curl did go away. It lengthens more than it volumizes, it barely volumizes. I used to love the packaging, but i recently discovered a crack in the wand even though it stays on my desk every day. I've had the same tube for 2 years now and it hasnt dried out at all. When i apply it, i keep the tube vertically upside down on my table so that it doesnt dry out. This mascara looks very natural and not dramatic at all. but its very good in that it doesnt smudge, which ive had a lot of mascaras that smudged
when you first put it on it looks really nice and voluminous. It does not really add length, which i prefer. I usually curl my lashes, apply mascara and curl again, and my curl stays all day. but, this mascara does smudge a little under the eyes.
