I got this at Sephora when I went in asking for samples. I absolutely love it. I love the coverage. I work between 9-12 hours a day with no time for touch ups and this foundation is perfect. I am in the lightest shade but I feel that if they made 1 shade lighter it would be perfect.

After watching videos on youtube for the past 2 years and seeing nearly everyone use this I finally gave in and bought one.... OMG am I glad I did!! I was hesitant because of the price, but figured can that many people be wrong? lol. I love this! I have been using it everyday for the past week that I have had it. I have tried it with cream and liquid.
One of my favorite drugstore foundations. I used to always reach for my original colorstay but now it sits in the back of my drawer. I have to mix Ivory and Buff (NC15). I apply this with my F80 or Sonia Kashuk flat top brush. The price isn't bad because of the quality of this for it being drugstore. The coverage is amazing and the lasting power is great! I have makeup on for at least 12 hrs everyday and work in a fast paced retail store so I have no time for touchups.

This is the only facial cleanser that I have tried that gets everything off. I always wear a fuller coverage foundation. Gets all my eye makeup off too. I love the smell. The packaging is ok, but when it comes to getting that last bit out a squeeze tube would be nicer. I can't really complain too much about the price because a little goes a long way. I use this every night with a clarisonic and an 8oz bottle has lasted almost a year.

I am pretty pale and have a difficult time finding a light enough shade that is not pink. I got a sample from Sephora and fell in love. The coverage is pretty good. I seem to always have a couple breakouts on my face along with acne scars so I still use a little concealer. I apply with my F80. I tried with my beauty blender but it did not work out so well. The packaging it great I love the squeeze tube. $38 is pretty pricey, but I will buy again since the color is so great.

I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! I am on my feet for 10 hours a day at work and my feet get pretty rough (ewww) I tried Vaseline and that made my feet feel nasty. I got this with a coupon so it wasn't that expensive. a little goes a long way. I got the biggest size and it is lasting forever. I do wish that it came in a squeeze tube though. Overall this is AMAZING! You have to try it. I will repurchase again and again
Picked this up the other day. I LOVE IT!! Im NC15 and this is the perfect highlighter for me. I was using the Revlon Colorstay finishing powder but hated that it was so pink.
I used this for the first time last night to remove my makeup. I can deff. say that I will never again but makeup remover wipes. This stuff works AMAZING!!! I got a huge bottle of the equate brand for like $2.

I have been using these for years. I buy the double pack which is 120 wipes for like $6. I started out with just 1 pack and the wipe container but now I just refill it. These are amazing. Very moist. I have tried other brand but they just dont compare.

I LOVE THIS!!!! I got mine for like $3. I color my hair ALOT. This helps so much. The smell is AMAZING! I put some in my hair when I get out of the shower and then after I flat iron it in the morning. Also if my hair is really dry I mix some with my conditioner in the shower and leave it in while i shave my legs. There seems to always be a coupon for this too :)

This is my favorite fall/winter scent. I was first drawn to it by the bottle. im a sucker for pretty designs and packaging. The bottle is gorgeous! smells amazing too :)
If your thinking about getting this, stop thinking and just get it! I for mine for $1.50 online. It's so simple to use and feels so good on my lips. The packaging does not feel or look cheap at all. I love the smell of it too.
This is a great concealer in my opinion. Love the coverage. The main thing that I hate is the packaging. You need very little of this but 1 pump is waayyy too much. I have started pumping it into a small jar and just using it from that.
I love this foundation. Im shade BUFF (mac nc15). I love the coverage, staying power, and finish. I apply it with my beauty blender. I just wish they made a darn pump for it.
I think I found my HG foundation. I LOVE this stuff. The coverage is amazing. I usually have to apply alot of concealer but not with the ELDW! Im mac nc15 and wear Ecru in DW. I apply it with my Sonia Kashuk flat top brush. Wish they would include a pump but a MAC pump fits just fine.
