I love this product! I suffer from sensitive mild acne-prone skin. I have tried so many cleansers and washes on my face, and I love this one the best by far. Alot of other acne cleansers were way too harsh on my skin, because they either contained high doses of BP or Salicylic Acid, which would often make my skin red, dry, and very irritated the longer I used them. This Purpose wash contains none of those harsh acne-fighting ingredients. It is so gentle on my face, and I love the way it makes my skin feel clean and soft after I use it. It also does a great job at removing make up.
I love this blush, it is by far one of my favorites. Being fair skinned, its hard to find a blush that looks natural. This blush really does warm up the skin, it adds a nice bronzed/mauve look to the skin. It is so beautiful on the cheeks and really makes you look radiant!
I used this product for around 6 months, and loved it at the time. I stopped using it and then tried it again only to find out I wasn't too fond of it. I found that it didn't keep my skin matte for long at all. Being a person with oily skin, anything with the word "matte" immediately draws my attention. In this case, it didn't stand up to its product name. I did, though, love the texture and consistency of the product. It just melted into my skin and looked so natural. It is one of those foundations that looks amazing when you first put it on, and then slowly begins to look worse and worse as the day progresses. For those that want light to medium coverage, and do not have excessively oily skin, I would recommend this foundation. All others in between would be better off with a different foundation. For those with dry skin, Maybelline came out with the Dream Smooth Mousse which would be better suited for such a skin type. Lastly, alot of people have commented on the fact that it made their skin break out. Being very acne-prone I have to say that I did notice maybe a break-out or two emerge when using this foundation, although I cannot be sure if it was from the Dream Matte Mousse or just my awful skin!
I absolutely LOVE this lip gloss. I tried one shade at first, and fell in love with the smell (almost like cake batter?) and the moisturization it gave my lips. Also, for being a lip gloss that is around $1.99 it really has great pigmentation. I have about 7 colors now, and I find that some are more sheer and others are more vibrant and pigmented. I carry one in my purse at all times and re-apply it constantly for the color, smell, and glossy finish it leaves. This is a cheap product (money wise) that DEFINITELY is not cheap quality.
I have a HUGE problem with controlling oil throughout the day. I love mineral veil because it does such a great job of getting rid of any oil on your face. I like to That is travel with a small container of it to re-touch my foundation throughout the day so that I do not look like an oil slick! I bought a huge jar of it for around $30.00 and have had it for 6 months with about half still left. If you are someone who is really oily, though, re-applying the mineral veil throughout the day is a must! If that is something you do not want to be bothered with during the course of the day then I would skip purchasing this product.

I really love this moisturizer! I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin that is also very oily. For this reason, I need a moisturizer that will be gentle enough to use on my skin and not aggravate or agitate it. I love the fact that it is non-comedogenic, which means it will not block the pores and cause acne. I have used this product for around 3 years now and every time I change moisturizers, I am always unhappy and go back to this. I wouldn't say that it does a good job at controlling shine, but it doesn't add more shine either. I found that it does provide a nice moisturized canvas for my foundation.
This is definitely my favorite liquid liner of all times. It is so easy to apply! I have tried ALOT of liquid liners, ranging from dirt cheap to high end, and I always go back to this one. The quality and the staying power is superb, and the pigmentation is nice and dark. I just wish they made this product in more colors! I would say this is a staple item in my personal make-up collection and would recommend it to anyone.
