I happen to love this lipstick. It is actually my fav. At first, it does look a bit bright and loud but after a while, it seems to tone down. If you apply a nice light pink gloss over it, it helps to mute it out to just the right shade of pink. This is my summer lipstick and I'm loving it! Like another reviewer said, it is alot of fun. Great to apply before nights out or events.

This gloss is OK, but not spectacular. With the price, I expected more. I think I could get similar results from a drug store brand with half the price tag. The only redeeming quality is that it isn't too sticky and it doesn't seem to trap your hair strands like many other kinds.
So admittedly, this is my first primer. I was late to the primer party. I never understood the purpose but I finally bought a small size of this at Sephora when I went in for something else. I can see how it makes my foundation go on smoothly but I am unsure as to what else it does. I don't know if it really makes it last any longer. I first used it on a hot and humid day and I did have to apply powder before the evening was through, but I'm unsure if I would've had to do that regardless. I like the way it feels though and I like how light it is. I think that it does not make me breakout which is what my biggest fear was with a primer.
This is FINALLY my HG foundation!! So happy to have found this. I want to call the lady that helped me pick this up at the Lancome counter in Nordstroms just to thank her for changing my life! Sound dramatic? Well, this foundation is nothing short of a MIRACLE. I'm huge on skin care and having healthy skin but I also like high quality makeup and this is both! It is non-comedogenic and has great ingredients but also has the perfect amount of coverage and almost makes your face look like you're in natural light in any sort of lighting. They have many different shades, including one made just for my skin tone apparently. It's wonderful - go check it out today!
I do NOT like this mascara. I got a freebie at the Nordstrom Lancome counter and am very glad I didn't have to pay for this! For one, it smells terrible - reminds me of some sort of medicine I had to take as a kid. Also, the brush sucks, it can't define any lashes on the corner. And to top it off, it makes my eyes burn! Sucks!
This is absolutely my HG. When it comes to mascara, I've tried most of everything and have never been totally happy. I was happiest with the Loreal Voluminous up until I tried Benefits They're Real. I was in love with the first application and after using it for the last 6 months, I'm just as happy as the first time I tried it out. It really does make my lashes look like I have applied fake lashes. The brush is excellent at getting those hard to reach lashes in the corners. Also, my eyes are super sensitive and water with most mascaras but this one they don't react to! It also lasts a long time - through all day, then partying at night, and those occasional nights you crash out with it still on, it looks just as good in the morning (even with a hangover)! I am never switching from this mascara!
I m disappointed! Most people rave about this blush but I found it to be less pigmented than desirable and it doesn't show up well on my complexion.
I agree with previous users on how the pump is very inefficient for this product. It is actually frustrating at times because since it is foaming, it takes so much effort to get the appropriate amount out. Also, it is not that "natural" as it claims. Many natural washes actually don't have the additives this does and it claims to be all natural when it actually really isn't that much different from the regular stuff. I'm not really impressed by this wash.
Yes to Carrots and Yes to Cucumbers make excellent shower gels. They last such a long time and have great smells and natural ingredients. I really like how foamy this gets and it feels great on my skin, no drying out. My only complaint is that it burns your eyes if it happens to splash in them. It is a great value for the price and the best value for natural body washes out there.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this product. I got it as a free gift from Ulta and I already have so many nude pinks that I thought - oh just another pink nail polish. But, I really was impressed with this color. I did use alot when painting, I globbed it a bit and gave it plenty of time to dry so it wouldn't smudge. It turned out beautifully. I love how even though it is light, it doesn't appear transparent. It is shiny and professional looking. It looks especially good on my tan skin tone. I am so glad I ended up getting this shade!
I LOVVVVE this salve. I primarily just use it on my lips but the smell reminds me of summer and it leaves a pretty gloss while protecting my lips and softening them. This is the BEST product for your lips. My only minor complaint is that it can get messy, especially if it gets too warm then it tends to melt a bit and the packaging makes it difficult to use under those conditions. Make sure you keep it at room temperature and use it often!
I use this serum as a smoothing product after straightening my hair with a flat iron or prior to straightening it using a round brush and hair drier. I have wavy/curly hair and it takes alot for something to actually work to tame the frizzies but this did a great job. I love how this serum doesn't have a bunch of silicones in it (which build up in your hair and result in more frizz after prolonged usage). I have been trying to avoid silicones and this is the only serum I have found that isn't full of them. The smell is a bit strong but it does not stick with you. Overall, this is a great choice for smoothing while styling.
LOVVVE this stuff. I used to use it as a hair mask and didn't appreciate it too much...until I read the back and saw that it could be used as a styling product. Now I use just a dime size amt on my long curly/wavy hair after smoothing leave-in conditioner in and it works to tame my curls and leave them soft with definition and no frizz. It is perfect for days when I want to wear my hair curly. The only drawback is if you use too much, your hair will look oily. It has to be a very very small amount smoothed throughout your hair to work well. It acts as if there are silicones in it and there are none! So healthy and good for your hair.
My hair stylist uses this product when she straightens my curly/wavy hair. It totally smooths out the frizz and relaxes my hair. She doesn't even have to use the straightening iron on my hair after smoothing this in and blow drying it straight with a round brush. Works wonders! The only drawback for me is the price.
I got Eye Bright in a combo container with half of the tin being Eye Bright and the other half Boi-ing. It is a "travel" edition and is very convenient. Eye Bright works wonders at concealing my dark circles. I blend this under my eyes starting at the darkest part of the circle (inner corner) and blend outwards prior to putting on foundation. It helps to lift my tired eyes and smooth out the skin tone. I tend to have dark circles anyways and have been dealing with a colicy newborn for 3 months and it STILL works on them. Although it is bright pink, I have tan skin and it still blends well when applied before foundation. A little cover up can be used on top for those really bad days.
