I have had this product for almost two weeks now and I have been applying it twice a day (in the morning and night) I love it. I had/have a lot of acne scars and other marks on my face that are clearing out and I am very happy that I purchased this although I wasn't so sure at first because it was around 40 dollars. I will be buying this again, whenever I run out.
I love this product. I have been looking for a foundation for so long and i've finally found one that I love. I will never use Mac, Make Up Forever, Tarte or anything else that I have used in the past. I do have some acne marks on my face but I just use a good concealer to cover them up. More than anything I love the way this feels on my face, it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing makeup. I just wish they had a pump other than that I love everything about it.
I like this eye liner, but I would not buy it again. I`ve been putting on eyeliner for years, ( im not saying im an expert or anything) but I hate how the wand is shaped, it makes it go on way too thick at times when I dont want it to be. I think if your going to pay however much the eyeliner is, you might as well try something else, for the same price. It`s very wet too, but on the positive side it stays on all day, it looks the same way through out the whole day.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - HiP Bright Duo - Adventurous #114
jasmine1765 10/18/2009 4:08:00 AM
This is my first HIP eyeshadow duo. I like the pink, but i find that I have to pack on alot onto my brush to get it to really pop on my eye. The brown colour doesnt show up at all no matter how hard I try, so I usually just use it as a highlighter, or blend it in with other eye shadows to tone them down as someone else mentioned. I like that its small and easy to carry around. I also like the mirror and the little brush that it comes with it which it makes it easy if you dont like to carry around all your make up everywhere you go. I`m so-so about purchasing another duo, just because the brown colour turned me off, but I do love the pink. I havnt used this much but it does have alot of product inside which should last a long time, and I know for a fact I will not run out anytime soon.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Wild Cherry Lip Butter

I've had this for a year, and I havn't really used it much, but I always take it everywhere I go. It kind of reminds me of those cherry icee's, from when I was a kid. It does have alot of product inside, its not something that would finish fast, like i said ive had it for a year and its not even halfway done. This is usually something I use when i just want something thats neutral. I dont like the fact that it comes in a little jar/container thing because I have to stick my finger in it, and I've had the lip gloss get into my nails. Therefore if it had been in a tube or something I think it would have been much easier to use. I also did not like the fact that In the summer time, this would melt and the texture would change. This is not something I would buy again.
I love this pump. My foundation used to get all over the place and a few times all over my hand and my sink. I love how just the right amount comes out and everything stays clean. If my pump was to somehow break or something I would definately go out and get another one. It was 6 bucks which isnt bad. I love it, i think everyone who doesnt have one, should go spend that 6 bucks and get it!
Eye Makeup Remover -The Body Shop - Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover

I've been using this product for a while, a few years now. It stings my eyes, and it is not as gentle as it says on the bottle. I usually apply some on a q tip and end up rubbing that around my eyes to get my eyeliner off. I would not purchase this again. Im trying finish all my make up removers so I can just start using olive oil.
I bought these about two years ago. I still have so much eyeshadow left. They might look tiny, but they last a really long time. However, I dont like how they go on your eyes, they just dont do it for me. I dont mind using it once in a while but its not something I would purchase again.
This is the second Concealer I have used. I dont remember what the first one was, I just remember it was some cheap drugstore brand and I didnt like it at all. So I really dont have much to compare this to. But I like it. It matches my skin, does a somewhat decent job in hiding my scars. It has not given me any problems, but If i do find a better one I will purchase it. It goes on good, and it stays on that way, till i take my makeup off.
I love the body shop. But I did not like this brush. It doesnt pick up colour as well as other brushes that I have do. Sometimes I use it to apply eyeshadow on my lower lashline with it but I would not reccommend buying it. I am going to try using it as a concealer brush, as some of the other reviewers mentioned.
Primer/ Corrector -GOSH - Velvet Touch foundation primer
jasmine1765 10/3/2009 4:23:00 PM
This is the first primer I have ever bought and used. I like it. It has this velvety texture to it. It goes on extra smooth, and one pump is enough for my whole face. I dont really have anything to compare this too, since its the only primer ive ever used. But i like it, and I would buy it again.
I used a sample of this product first. I was pretty fed up with Mac and foundations in general. Ive used Mary Kay, foundation from the Body Shop, and the NC 35 Select. None of these matched my skin, or went on smooth enough. I accidently told the lady i was a NC30 which used to make my face look white, and she gave me a sample of the NC35 in Studio Fix. I love it, it goes on so smooth. I use a moisturizing face cream, leave it on for a few minutes, and then put my primer on. And then I apply this and set it off with the studio fix powder. I will stick to this, until I find something better.
