I have really fair skin, so it is hard for me to find the right blush color. I had read that NARS Orgasm was a color that was universally flattering to most any skin tone, and that there was a much less expensive dupe, Milani Luminoso. I had to go to a few different stores to find it, because the brand is not carried at every store (even though my city is relatively big) and the stores I did find it sold at, it was sold out. I used it the first day and hated it. I felt like it didn't show up very well at all, even on my very fair skin tone. I was going online to review it, and I read some more reviews which said that it builds well if you apply light layers, so I did that the next day and I loved it. I have had so many people compliment me, but they really have no idea what I changed, haha!

I have combination skin that is more oily than not, and the parts that are dry are very dry, so I have had a hard time finding ONE moisturizer that will work all over my face. Previously I was using two, to cater to my extremely dry and extremely oily parts separately, until I saw this in a travel size at Ulta. I hate paying for a full size bottle of something and hating it, and then being out a lot of money on stuff that I didn't like or didn't work, but this stuff is fantastic!! My skin doesn't get shiny throughout the day, My breakouts have become almost non existent (at least for the better part of the month) and the dry parts don't get flaky. I can't recommend this enough.
This eyeliner went on like a dream, it is very pigmented and smooth to apply. I had high hopes that I would continue to love it throughout the day, but I didn't. I have never had a problem with the skin in my eye area being too oily, but something made this smear and melt. Other reviewers have had good luck though, so maybe it is just me. I have tried both the black and the grey shades and I liked the boldness of the black and the grey was perfect for the smoky look. I didn't hate it enough to stop wearing it, because I hate to waste money, but I do have to check it throughout the day and clean up when necessary, which I have never had to do with other eyeliners. I wouldn't buy again, but it did have some nice features that someone else may like.
