This is a rubbish product. I just bought it and i liked the color and stay. But I left the lid not properly secured for a couple of hrs (unintentionally of course) and when I wanted to reapply ,it was completely dry. I tried wiping it with a dry tissue as stated on the packaging, but no luck. It is like a stupid board marker , I had to throw it , would prefer other liquid lip tints. This is a no buy.
i wanted to try this product as everybody talks about it. First it is hard to use as they give you a slice of the huge thing and it could be at least 100grams. It doesnt lather like a soap so if you wet the whole thing you need to play with it in your hand for a while to get some product melted . If you dont want to use the whole product then you need to break some small parts of it in order to use it. When I get it first it was so solid and difficult to disolve with water, hard to cut, hard to apply etc. By the time I use it it has become softer with the water contact. I kept it in a container and try not to get the whole product with water most of the time. But still it carried on melting and the oil in the product seperated at the bottom of the container. left was a mushy soapy creamy product which was easier to apply but still do not like this product. if a tiny drop of it goes into your eyes , it is blinding and burns your eyes to hell. it doesnt come in a container , it helps the world so what, it is hard to use it. it is a huge chunk of something that you try to wash your face with it. besides it doesnt do anything to my face, i didnt see any changes or improvements. It doesnt clean the make up on my face with a first wash, i need to wash my face at least 3 times to get rid of the make up. So lush products smell good, look good but not usable for me.
I like this product as it deep cleanses my face. However I dont like using it very often such as twice a day. I usually use it after wearing a long lasting make up all day, I wash my face then wipe my face with a cotton pad with this product. It definitely cleans any make up residue on my face. Also makes me feel fresh. It does help with acne as well. My only worry is :every dermatologist I met recommended using an alcohol free product for my oily acne prone skin but this clarifying lotion is for combination to oily skin and it has alcohol in it. so i dont know if it is good using this product over a long time as the alcohol may damage the skin after regular use.

This product is good for my oily skin even though it is not enough by itself to make me stay matte all day. It is very light weight, easy to apply, and doesnt make me produce more sebum. I have tried many other light gel moisturizers which didnt make a difference but this one is definitely better than others. If I dont find any better product I will carry on using this. Also the bottle is huge and 2 pumps of this product is enough for my whole face, so the product lasts long. Plus not very expensive.
I am not so fussy about blushes, I could do with a drugstore one. I thought I would try a mac one. packaging is really cheap looking and doesnt look nice. color is fine, it is matte as i wanted it. it is not so expensive but has no plus comparing to drugstore blushes. so rather than mac blush next time I would either pay more and get a chanel one or just buy one from a drugstore.
I have received a tester of this product. Even though I am not a big fan of sweet smells this one has captured me. I couldnt help smelling it all the time. I have also asked some people's opinion on the smell and all said they liked it. I am definitely thinking of buying it when I finish all the fragrances that I have.

I have bought the brunettes one. product is silky and soft on your skin. it smells great, i would buy it again even just for the smell of it. it looks really natural and matte. it doesnt make my pale complexion orange. very good product.
finally i have bought a foundation which doesnt oxidise on my skin. it stays where i put it until i decide to take it off. you just need a tiny bit of it to cover your face and it doesnt get cakey or look unnatural. i m happy that i have found my foundation to use for the rest of my life. it is not pricey comparing the results you get with it. the bottle not having a pump doesnt bother me. I apply it with my fingers and get great results. my face stays matte and doesnt get oily as much.
what is the fuss about this herbalism I dont understand. I have oily skin and i have heard a lot about this and thought I could give it a try. first it is expensive, second it expires in a very short time (not sure but might be 3 months), third it is really hard to use. texture is crumbly, you need to wet it to turn it into a creamy cleanser and when applying it it goes down your hand and some of the product ends up in the sink unused. when i rinse it off it leaves my skin oily. i m just using this product as i bought it and dont wanna waste it but will not buy it again. and also it hasnt made any difference on my skin. i think this product's reputation only comes from people exaggerating it becuase lush products are natural.
I love pure poison. when I received this hypnotic poison fragrance as a birthday present, I have opened the package and throw away its box as I thought it would be as nice as pure poison. but when I tried it on my skin it was so heavy, sugary and not fresh. this smell doesnt go away and it lasts so long and I hate it more. I wish I have kept the box as I could sell it on the net. but now it just lays in my bathroom cupboard. I have also not liked this smell when my colleague is wearing it. it makes me sick when i smell this.
I have bought this product after reading a lot of reviews. I have been using it for the last 2 days . Normally in the morning I d put make up on and go shiny by lunch time. Yesterday I checked my face at 7 pm and it was still matte! that was unbelievable! I have also applied my kryolan anti shine powder as a finishing powder, so murad oil control mattifier and kryolan anti shine do wonders for me. I have read about its gluey texture and the bad smell of this product in reviews but I have not noticed any of these. It is easy to apply, blends easily and doesnt smell much unless you dig your nose inside the tube . great buy for oily skin
this is again a very different scent from calvin klein, at first smell you might find it heavy and nauseating. but allow a couple hours, with the warmth of your skin , the smell will completely chance. it s still spicy and warm smell but it reminds me of an evening drinking by the fireplace on a winter night :) so it s definitely for winter and for mature ladies. i dont like the bottle though.
this smell definitely not for for olive, dark skin people. i never liked the smell when i smelled it on my dark hair, dark eyes, dark/olive skin friends, i find it really sugary, heavy and nauseating. then i decided i would never buy this. i couldnt even stand hearing the name of it, i would suddenly wanna puke. but then one day i smelled it on my pale skin, blonde friend and on other blondies later and i loved it. it smelled completely different. that s why i found this fragrance really risky, you might like it on someone but it doesnt mean it will smell the same on you.
i bought this when i came across with it at a good price after hearing nice stuff about it , it smelled nice but unfortunately doesnt last long. it s very fresh, flowery, light fragrance but probably noone will notice and ask what you are wearing.
this is one of the worst fragrances of calvin klein ,it smells like you squeezed lemon over your head and the freshness of the lemon turns into a sour smell but thank god it doesnt last more than a couple of hours.
