This mascara made my lashes look a bit longer but did nothing for fullness. The worst part is that while I didn't experience clumping, I experienced a ton of flaking--and that was only after 1-2 hours of wear!
Sampled this foundation in the Sunny Beige shade. I usually alternate between LM's Moisturizing Liquid Foundation (also in Sunny Beige) and the LM.Compact Foundation (Shade 2). Was prepared to love this product but I don't. But I don't totally dislike it either. I found it to be too thick which hindered the 'slip" regardless of the method of application I tried (i.e. brush, sponge, finger). The product will also leave your face a bit shiny even after using setting powder so stay away from this product if your skin tends to be even a little bit oily (I have an oily T-Zone). However, the coverage is wonderful and as always LM has the best shades. I find that the Moisturizing Liquid gives great coverage as well, has much better slip and the pump bottle used for the liquid is more convenient than the glass jar container used for the creme. I would recommend this product If your skin tends to be dry and you need heavy coverage otherwise the liquid is a better choice.

Just started using this product and I think it is very good. Unlike other protecting creams, alcohol is not a major ingredient in this product so it does not have a drying effect on the hair. Coupled with the potential drying damage of using flat irons, why use a product that has alcohol listed as the first ingredient? I agree with the other reviewers with respect to the bubblegum smell-would prefer a fresh scent instead. The smell does disappear after a go-round with the flat iron. I have wavy fine hair that can be controlled with a hair blower BUT- I must say that I get better (straighter)results using this cream and a flat iron!
