Love this stuff. For the price, you just cant beat it. Makes my lashes thick and long and you really cant tell the difference between this stuff and the more expensive stuff. There are certain things I will spend more money on but mascara is not one of them, especially with stuff like this around.
Looooove this stuff. It smells so delicious. Kinda spicy, very feminine, and intense. Its lovely.

I really liked this stuff at first but I have been using it for about three weeks now and I noticed I started breaking out and my pores have been looking super clogged. This stuff is super clogging for the pores and causes breakouts.

HG HG HG HG HG!!! If you dont have this product, run dont walk to get it. I would give it a 10 if I could. This is the most amazing facial cleanser ever. The first week I got it I was so upset it was not working. But I came on here and read the reviews and I was using it wrong! Be sure to use this stuff on dry skin with dry hands! Dont use it with water like I was. The first few days my skin broke out-my skin was purging all the crap in my pores. But the pimples dried up and went away quick and now my skin looks AMAZING. I had been using retin-a for a long time and although it helped control my acne my skin was always red and sensitive and did not control my acne anywhere near as well as this stuff. Even when i do get a pimple now it dries up super fast. My redness is gone. My skin feels so clean after I use this stuff. My blackheads and pores have shrunk. My skin looks so much better over all. And this stuff is still gentle while doing all this magic! Amazing!

This stuff saved me. It saved my skin. I used to have horrible horrible horrible acne. It totally affected my self-esteem and confidence and made me so miserable. This stuff is pretty hardcore-I mean you have to be on birth control, you have to get blood tests every month, it is not cheap (unless you have health insurance), it has a lot of potential side effects (including depression and possible suicide). BUT if you suffer from bad long term acne like I did then you know that the risk for potential side effects is worth it and it certainly was in my case. It took about 4 months for this stuff to do its magic and my lips were horribly dry the whole time and I did notice that I felt a little more moody and down inside than usual but my acne went away COMPLETELY and my self esteem was restored. I did have a little bit of acne come back and but it was in a way thats completely controllable which it was not before. Now with a good esthetician, facials and the right products, my skin is looking better than ever. I would totally take this stuff over again-even with the side effects and I completely recommend it for people with severe acne.

Ugh I hate this stuff. I bought it because I was looking for a moisturizer with SPF but it was so thick and white. It made my skin look even whiter than it is-which is very hard to do! Even my boyfriend bought it and had to stop using it because it literally makes you look like you have clown makeup because its so thick and white and greasy. Definitely go for something else.

I used this stuff for my lips while I was on accutane (which in case you dont know is EXTREMELY drying) for my lips and its the ONLY thing that was moisturizing enough. Its thick enough to moisturize extremely dry places.
Really did not like this product and it was really not effective for me. Not only did it not make my acne any better-the cleanser (which has exfoliating beads) was so rough on my skin that it looked completely raw and red like a tomato and super duper sensitive. Since when is exfoliating every day a good thing? I think anyones skin would go raw. Anyways totally not worth the money for me.
This product made my skin so unbelievably oily it was unbelievable. My skin is oily as it is but while using this, it was even worst. I did like the smoothness of the primer though.

I love this stuff. I have been using it for years after my step sister turned me on to it. I put it on over my foundation and it gives my face such a nice natural looking finish. I really freak out when I dont have it. Its gentle enough for my sensitive and acne prone skin. It does not make me break out. Its a resonable price. And it lasts forever.
I LOVE MILANI! I absolutely love milani stuff especially their lip glosses. The cutest colors, great consistency, and cheap! Love love love it.
Milani has the cutest nail polishes that go on really well and are super cheap! Awesome deal.
I used this stuff as a makeup remover once and havent used it since. It is SO greasy and thick. I used foundation as well as eyemakeup so I used this all over my face and tried to wash it off after with my face wash and it was soooooo greasy I had such a hard time washing it off. It felt like I had stuck lard all over my face.
Love this stuff. I have loved it since middle school when my friend gave me a sample. My boyfriend hates it-he says it smells like old lady. It isn't the most youthful perfume and it is very intense and quite musky-but I happen to like intense and musky. Love this perfume.
I really am quite baffled by this perfume. Its supposed to be a classic and its world famous and Marilyn Monroe used to wear it-but to me it smells like crap. Maybe I am missing something? Maybe somethings wrong with my nose? I remember smelling it when I was younger and I tried smelling it a few years after and I smelled it recently and I still dont get it-it still smells like crap to me!
