This product was horrible on my combo skin! I put it on overnight, and when i woke up the next morning, i was sooooo oily, and it broke me out, and just overal made my skn look bad. It's almost like my pores were more dialated than usual. Also i'm not a fan of the smell, it's WAY too overpowering to go on your face.
I really like this product. Throughout the years, i've used numerous higher end and drug store cleansers, and none of them worked as well as this. I'm not saying it's a miracle worker, however, i find that it works greta in removing residue, and making my face feel clean and refreshed. Also, it keeps my skin from becoming too oily. As for blemishes, i feel that it keeps skin fairly clean, even though the occasional breakout will still occur. Overall, greta product, def. going to buy again onc emy current one finishes.
Great brush! I've had mine for about a year now, and so far, none of the fibers havce come out, which is amazing for a drugstore brand brush! Also, it's relaly great because it fills in pores, causing a smoother appearance to skin. Great for applying liquid concealer, I usually use it with my MAC.

Great product, i only wish that the color lasted longer. The smell is absolutly unbearable though, i can't stand it. It works best when applie don non-moisturized skin, so do so after taking a shower. Personally, I hate going to bed with it on because the smell is horrible, but it tends to work best then. My only advice is in order for it to work well, you need to you use a decent amount of the product, so that it coats skin evenly, For one full leg i generally use a little less than a ping-pong sized amount for full coverage. Secondly, after applying it to your body, let it dry for a few minutes before putting on clothes. An added bonus is that it makes skin REALLY smooth, however, i felt that there was no real firming aspects to the revamped version.

Great for eliminating shine and at a great price. I only have two concers. Firstly, I hate the packaging, i wish they came in a nice case like the quo, because the cardboard gets trashed in my handbag. Secondly, they do whipe away some makeup, so you my have to reapply a bit in the t-zone area.

This product offers no coverage, and also turns skin very oily and shiny. The shade that i bought was to dark and orangey for me, and looked like i didn't know how to apply bronzer. I liked the idea of the shimmer, however, when the product goes on, it just makes you look even oilier. It did not stay on well at all. Also, i tried the revamped verion of it, but again same problems, except that the shimmer has been eliminated. Overall, i really don't see the point of this product.
My signature scent! Absolutly love this fragrance, and whenever i have it on, i ALWAYS get complimented, most often by men. My boyfriend absolutly adores it. I find that it's very sexy, and sofisticated at the same time. An excellent ballance in sweatness... an overall winner for me!
I love the fragrance! when i frist smelled it i thought it was way too sweet, but when i put it on i found that it actually smelled really nice on me, and after a while, i even felt like it had some very subtle masculine notes to it. It really depends on the person, because it will smell differently on everyone. However, it's def. not an everyday perfume, more for special occasions, and dressing up i'd say.
I loved this product! I purchesed it at a sale at Sephora over the summer for like $8, which is dirt cheap in my oppinion. AT the time, i was looking for a bronzer though, and sinc ethey did not have this powder in my shade, i bought one that was a few shades darker and just used it as a bronzer to highlight cheekbones, t-zone, forhead....crazy i know. But it worked beautifully for me! I got so many compliments on my skin looking flawless, and it really did esp. on my t-zone where i have larger pores. I did not find that it made my sking chalky or oily at all. Also, i absolutly love the compact, i found that it was very useful to have the mini compartment underneath. Overall great product, i will def. repurchase!
This mascara really worked very nicely for me! I found that the brush gave both thickness, length and volume, even in just a swipe. it has lasting power, and can go through a whoel day. The only noticable problem i saw was the fact that it dried out really quickly, making it impossible to apply.
Love this shade, mainly because in a sea of black manicures, you stand out a bit! It's a metallic grey, which goes on fairly light with one quote, but two quotes makes it a nice dark deep grey.
When i first bought this product, i HATED it! It clumped my lashes and was just very messy alltogether, plus i found that the wand was useless to my personal mascara applying technique. However, after a while, i figured out how to put it on properly, and i must say it's not bad at all! I find that the trick is to do one or two swipes right form the last line, and then just swipe it on the tips. It makes my lashes really long and they seem to look much darker than with otehr mascaras, however it gives no volume.
This moisturizer is def. my HG. I have combo skin, with occasional break outs, nothing serious though. This moisturizer is absolutly amazing though! It cleared up my face completly, and kept it that way. Even during the tiem of the month, not a single blemish appears on my skin. I'm not too fond of the smell, and i do find that it dries up skin a LOT in the winter, however, it def. serves its purpose! paired up with another light moisturizer during teh day, it works wonders!
When i first tried it at the MAC counter, i thought it was amazing. I could literally feel it working, so i went ahead and bought it. But i was completly disappointed. When i applied it the next day at home, i felt like it really did not blend in well, at all! And it made my T-Zone even oilier. I also think the color they matched me with, which was medium, was a shade too dark, for my NC-30 skinI really wnated to like this product, it's too bad!
