I use this about once or twice a week and its like a temporary facelift and helps control my extremely oily acne prone sensitive skin (What a combo huh?) The key is to beat the egg whites and to use the foam that is created. After use the yolk as a natural moisturizer to help control oil formation afterwards. A great natural and cheap option.

I have extremely oily acne prone skin and I have been using this product for about 1 yearbut just recently they changed their formula. Before the formula change I had almost no acne thanks to this product. Now since the formula change I am really starting to break out more. It still helps to control some, but not like before. I'm going to change products now becaue of the new formula.
First off let me just say I LOVE the scent. Amazing. It tames my flyaways and gives me smooth shiny hair without weighing it down. It lasts forever too it lasted me for about 6 months using it every other day.

I love this palette. Its got some gorgeous colors and they are very blendable. My favorite is by far the beautiful shimmery copper shade. I find it to be fairly idiot proof and it really makes my eyes pop. I just wish the sand color was a touch lighter.
I have this in glam brown and let me just say it is an amazing mascara. There are only 2 cons for me and one is the funny rose scent but thank goodness is goes away after it dries. The next con is that it can get a little clumpy and takes some time to apply. This is not my everyday mascara but I will definitely pull it out when i have some extra time and want to go out. It creates length and volume and holds curl well for me. Also the brown color is a dark brown which is perfect for me as black tends to be a little harsh on my pale skin with light eyes and hair. I love the fact that the brown is actually dark enough, in many brown mascaras the browns are just too light. A Definite repurchase.

I have been using this to help diminish my stretch marks. Applied twice a day to problem areas helps the new red marks to improve. Unfortunately nothing really can be done for the old white ones. Also useful in prevention. Very affordable and attainable! Loving it will definitely repurchase.
I do like this mascara a lot, especially for the price. I have it in black and its definitely dark enough for me, it gives good definition, and a little volume, but to be honest i don't really care too much about volume. For me it's length, curl and seperation, and this gives a natural looking length and good seperation no clumps (but I also never use more than 2 coats of mascara) but nothing for volume. It holds curl for about 8 hours and then I need to recurl my lashes. I'm not complaining 8 hours is pretty good for the price.This is my everyday mascara and I will continue to use this.

I did love the coverage I had it in light, but it barely lasted any time at all. I won't purchase again for that reason but the color was a beautiful match to my skin and I wish they gave you more product!
This is my main blush its got a light dusting of shimmer but it's not very noticeable on your face. I'm very pale and applied with a light hand this looks natural and healthy on my skin. One thing is to just throw away the brush it comes with and then you have a great product! I'm on my third package and will continue to buy.
I use this everyday,. For my daily natural makeup looks I use the light color in my crease over champagne fizz and for more dramatic looks i use the darker one in the outer corner. I also use the light color for eyebrows and blending.

I use this everyday because I prefer mattes to shimmers or pearls. I match this with a matte medium brown crease color and a vanilla shimmer shade for highlight. I have very light warm toned skin and so this looks fairly close to my natural color. I use this everyday it's the only product I use everytime whether an all over color, or a base color.

I use this everday in my crease over a matte neutral lid color and it looks amazing, I love the shimmer in it, it just adds a little sparkle to my daily look. Its a little silvery, more so than you'd expect but all in all a nice color
My shade is27 Alabaster(N) and I absolutely adore this. This helps control my oil and doesn't make me break out. This is my absolute favorite foundation and matches my skin tone perfectly!! Try it ladies with combination or acne prone skin... you'll love it!

This is a little more dramatic than my during the day blush, but applied with a light hand looks amazing on my very pale skin. I do love the natural flushed glow I get with this color but I'll keep it as my evening blush.

This is my everyday blush. I love the slight shimmer and natural warm peachy pink glow. Definitely one of my favorites.
