How the heck do you sharpen this thing? I had to throw this away 1 week after purchasing because I couldn't sharpen it. What a waste of money?!
So far, so love!! This foundation has the smoothest and lightest feeling I've ever experienced with any liquid foundation. On top of that, it covers well and blends well. I have somewhat oily skin, and I do notice some shiny areas about mid-day, but nothing a little powder can't take care of. I love the lightweight feeling this has along with the radiance it seems to give my skin so that I look like I don't have a lot of makeup on, just good skin. This is great stuff and I will definitely be buying again!

Flaky, flaky, flaky!! I was not impressed with this mascara!! It did nothing special for my lashes and more importantly was flaking all over my face by the end of the day. Will not buy again.
I love the color of this, but I'm wondering if I got a bad pot or something...This creases like crazy on me and only lasts about a 1/2 day at best. I'm so dissappointed! I've been wanting this for a while, so I was really excited when I got it, but after several tries, I just can't get this to not crease. I don't have this problem with any of my other paint pots. Bummer. I won't be re-purchasing.
Wow! I'm so surprised about the negative reviews! I received this as part of the Sephora lash stash and I have to say its one of my favorite mascaras! The brush is perfect, nice and thin to get into every corner. I find the formula to be volumizing and just great for my already long lashes. I get great volume and plan on purchasing a full size. This is a fantastic mascara!

This is a gorgeous duo! Yes, its very frosty, shimmery, but that's what I enjoy! The colors are beautiful and the quality of the shadows are amazing. They have great pigmentation and you need just a little for a lovely look. This is a fantastic neutral duo for day or night!
Wow, I'm really surprised about all of the rave reviews fo this quad. I've only used it twice, but have had it since Christmas, and its seems sort of "eh" to me. I suppose I need to play with it more, but I agree the silvery taupe color is nothing but glitter, and the other colors seem pretty dupeable. I'll try it wet and see if I need to edit this review.
Lip Gloss -Yves Saint Laurent - Golden Gloss #19 - Golden Petal

I can't say I love this lip gloss as much as the other reviewers. First off, this does not smell fruity at all, it smells like plastic. Secondly, the brush applicator is terrible. I've only used it a few times and the bristles are already getting wonky. As for the color and glitter, they're OK, but to be honest, I can find NYX lipglosses that look exactly the same for a fraction of the price. I won't be buying this again.
I really wanted to like this product. I've used Philosophy's When Hope is Not Enough Serum for years, but I wanted to switch things up and try something a little cheaper. I loved the ad I saw for this and when it was on sale at Ulta, I had to get it. Unfortunately, I've used it 1x daily for 4 days now and while I love the smell and the way my skin feels, I can't deal with the breakout I have now. I will not be finishing the bottle.
