This is the perfect low maintenance product if you already have fairly good skin. It glides on and blends so easily that you really don't need a brush to apply it and it's very moisturising. I personally love it but if you have oily/problem skin and you need more coverage and oil control, this probably isn't for you. My only problem with this is that the tube is not very big and I would have liked a bit more product for my money.

Great packaging (the brush it comes with is very good quality too), easy to apply, versatile (waterline and upper lash line), lasts all day. I really have nothing bad to say about this. I've had mine for a year and it was starting to dry out but I took an antibacterial wipe and kind of wiped away the dry top layer and it's fine now. Love this!

This saved my life. I had had acne since i was 11 and had literally tried everything until Accutane was all that was left. I took a low dose for 8 months, so my side effects were not too bad, but the results were the same. I experienced slight back pains and very dry lips but this was so worth it because of what it did to my skin. I have been off Accutane for 4 months now and my skin is flawless, I have tiny scars on my cheeks but they are easily covered with foundation. I would definitely recommend this but I definitely think that doing it over a longer period of time is worth it as the side effects are nothing unbearable. Accutane restored my self confidence :)
I used to have very bad acne and used this before and while on Accutane. Although it did not clear up my acne completely, it certainly helped to dry up zits. At the moment, I am off Accutane and I just use this as a preventive treatment so I don't get blackheads and small zits around my nose. Since I live in France, a tube only costs about $15 over here and since it lasts forever it's definitely worth it. If you have bad acne and are looking for a treatment, I wouldn't recommend buying it if you live in a country where it costs $60 as there are better ways to spend your money (ACCUTANE). It's nice but not very strong.

Probably my favourite foundation, but the only reason I am giving it 4 lippies is because of the limited shade selection. I use the lightest shade in the summer when I am tan and I would use this year round if only they made lighter shades. Other than that, this is a great foundation if you have dry/normal skin and you are looking for a light, moisturising and dewy foundation. Easy to blend and so natural looking. I love the smell but if you do not like scented foundations make sure you sniff the tester before buying it. Another plus is the special pump that pushes the product upwards so you make the most of every drop of product.
I love this mascara. It beats out some high end ones I have tried and for half the price. It lengthens, separates and volumises, plus it is available in several colours and waterproof.

After all the great things I had heard, I could not wait to try this mascara and really wanted to like it for the price I paid for it. I used it for a while (again mostly because of how expensive it was) but again couldn't really justify to myself using a mascara I disliked this much. It clumps like crazy even when wiping the brush and in the end I get it all over my lids trying to separate my lashes. Honestly one of the worst mascaras I've tried.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

Although this has a slightly powdery finish and does not last all day, I love that it is very buildable in terms of coverage, easy to blend and looks great in pictures. This is definitely my going out foundation.
I bought the oily skin version and honestly found that it made me more oily than if I went makeup free. The coverage is great, it blends well and the colour range is impressive but I would not recommend this for oily skins.
