Moisturizers -Bobbi Brown - Vitamin Enriched Face Base

If you are acne prone/oily, this is probably the best Bobbi Brown moisturizer for me. I've been using it for about a month now, at night and during the day under my makeup. I've seen a massive improvement in my skin, in fact, this surprisingly has been one of the best products I've ever used as far as getting rid of acne (mild). Simplicity is key when it really comes down to it!
Like all the Ecotools brushes, this one is a true champ. I don't use it for bronzer, instead I use it as a kubuki for my Bare Escentuals Matte foundation. The large, dense dome of bristles is perfect for this use! The packing is minimal (good) but its a little difficult to remove the brush. Other then that, it's a truly wonderful purchase!
Crimson #840: A slightly pink red but with great berry undertones. Can be worn sheer or heavy. Megan Fox wore Crimson #840 on the 2009 October cover of Cosmo. A truly delightful lipstick!
A fantastic, simple liquid eyeliner that is slim and easy to use. The colours are great, especially the black/brown. Dries fast, doesn't smudge easily. Edit: I threw this out after a couple weeks. It doesn't wash off easily, and it irritated my sensitive eyes (they became swollen on the elids and underneath). Terrible product.

As said before, this is like a tinted primer. With a little concealer on trouble spots and some powder to set, you really do get flawless skin! Its a HG product for sure. A litte tip: the pump has a vaccum design that doesn't work all that well if you store it on its side or right side up. Just store it upside down and it works fine. Thats my only qualm with it.
This is not a comparable alternative to Moroccan oil. Don't let the cheap price pull you in either. While it smells nice for awhile, its consistency is odd, a bit like glue rather then a nice serum or oil. When you rub it in your hands it becomes white and foamy. And while it gives your hair a decent shine, it won't do that much for softness. If you were to apply this and airdry your hair, it would be sticky and dry in clumps. I don't reccomend you buy this when for a few more bucks you can buy a real standout serum!

It really all depends on the texture of your hair, when testing whether a product will work for you or not in a big way. Seeing as I have texture that can be blow-dryed stright or curly, this product really emphasizes the latter. I also appreciate the softness.
Gave me an awful rash, the skin was inflamed, stung and developed ridges. After weeks of wearing no deoderant, and trying to calm the area down with aloe or oatmeal, the inflamation subsided. Clearly, I had an allergic reaction to this product. I do not reccomend it, as I've heard similar accounts from different product message boards.
