I wanted to LOVE this :( It does give my lashes length and thickness but living in a tropical country (Philippines) it smudges and goes down my undereye! It's such a hassle. Im really disappointed

This is sad. I really wanted to like this foundation. Soft Beige was the closest match to my skin tone. I'm asian with yellow undertones. First application, i like that it DOES NOT transfer to my iPhone nor my clothes. It's easy to blend ( I used a beauty blender dupe). But after using it for a few days I noticed that my face started to look dull. It almost whitened to think that it should darken a bit cause my face is acidic. Maybe if they had a better color selection then id be happy. For now im sticking with Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen wow in Petal.
Why do I think that im the only one who doesn't like this? When i tried it at first i thought it was good. But the coverage didn't even help hide my eye bags. They were still too noticeable, too sheer like i just applied BB cream all over my under eye area. I feel like i wasted money using this stuff :\ Should've bought that mac concealer that comes in a pot. Tried it from a friend once and I think that was way better.

okay so i took A LOT of time reading all these reviews about the HIAJ, i must admit i was so scared with all the mixed reviews i saw. I was too scared to try this tonight before i sleep for i have this upcoming beach trip and have to look glowing! Right now ive been breaking out because my monthly period is about to start again, my face have a lot of tiny red acne pimples :( and acne scars too. This is the worst it has gotten ever since my puberty stage. Im using proactiv too but its only gradually helping my acne disappear. I need it gone in 2 days! So anyway I finally decided to give HIAJ a shot. Washed my face, pat my face a little with a dry towel (left my face a little damp cause it works better that way when applying moisturizer), dabbed some HIAJ on my forehead, left cheek, right cheek, chin and on my nose and started to massage my entire face in a circular outward motion. It was VERY light weight and my skin quickly absorbed it! I played with my laptop for an hour, went back to the bathroom, looked at the mirror and OMG AFTER A WEEK OF DULL COMPLEXION, my skin became super glowing and my redness disappeared instantly, all that was left were my acne spots, and they looked like they shrunk a bit. The only bad thing is yes, the scent. Its awful its literally giving me a headache :'( but one review says that vicks vaporub on the nostrils will do the trick, and yes it did help. The only bad thing about this is the smell. I LOVE THIS ALREADY!
This mascara when applied actualy separates my lashes and it doesnt clump up. But what i dont like about it is it makes your lashes fall straight and flat when you just curled your lashes with an eye curler. It doesnt really give that volume and length to the mascara. so this one's just a so-so mascara for me. I only use it on a lazy day out to go run some errands, or when i dont feel like putting on that much mascara. bottom line, won't buy this mascara again. waste of money.
