This product just doesn't work well for me. I initially bought it to conceal my under eye circles, but it tends to show creases in the area even more than not wearing it. It works wonderfully on other areas of my face, (nose area, chin), to conceal any redness, but I wish it would have worked for my under eye area. Will not be buying this product again.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - The Mystic's Kiss (Project Runway)

I love this color. It def doesn't look the same in the tube as it does on the lips. In the tube, it looks like a deep plum color. It is a beautiful berry/fuchsia color on my lips and looks even better with the L'Oreal Mystic's Shine on top of it. I like this color a lot and would def recommend it to anyone. The only thing I don't like about the packaging is that the cover has to go on a certain way to fit and I always have to look as I cover it back up; just a minor hassle.
This item was super cheap! 0.99. I wore it with OPI's Pirouette My Whistle on top and received many compliments. I can't really say if it chips easily as any nail polish I wear tends to chip easily. Drying time was a little lengthy but I'm not very patient when it comes to waiting for polish to dry. Like other reviews have stated, it looks very dark indoors, but if sunlight hits it, it is a very beautiful blue. I think it looks more dark navy than black indoors. I am pleased with it.
This mascara def makes my lashes look fuller and gives me more volume. I sometimes use this with Maybelline Full N' Soft and it makes me look like I have on falsies. I only use waterproof mascara as the non-waterproof mascaras will not hold a curl. With using waterproof mascara all the time, I make sure to remove it every night and condition my lashes every night so my lashes will not dry out and break off.

I've been using this mascara for years. I've found that my lashes will usu only keep a curl with waterproof mascara so I do not use the regular version of this mascara. Sometimes, I use this with Covergirl Lash Blast and together, they make my lashes look like falsies. This has never flaked and has def proven to be waterproof. This mascara separates my lashes and make them a little darker and longer. I have repurchased this mascara for years and will continue to do so.

This stuff worked for me, however, I have to keep on using it for my lashes to stay long. Since using it, my boyfriend and a friend have asked if I'm wearing false lashes, while I only had on mascara (I usu wear Maybelline full n soft or Covergirl Lash Blast, or both, def making my lashes look more like falsies) :) I am Asian, so this product making me look like I have on falsies is a miracle. This stuff is cheap and works well, so I keep repurchasing. Be careful not to get it in your eyes, it does sting. I only use it at night before going to bed, I'm sure it'd work better if I used it more often. I do not use it under mascara b/c for me, it makes my lashes limp and they won't keep a curl with this under mascara. I have also used this on my eyebrows and it doesn't seem to make much of a difference.
I bought this in the travel size so there's no pump, I just squeeze it out of a bottle. I bought this one and the illuminating primer. I prefer this one over the illuminating primer as the second seemed to make my pores larger. I like how this feels silky smooth on my skin. The very first time I used it, it was great! However, it seems to no longer make my foundation last. I don't have oily skin so I can't comment on its performance to minimize shine. I purchased it mainly to extend the life of my foundation, so I'll keep searching. I hear Monistat chafing gel is very similar to Smashbox Photo Finish, so I'll be giving it a try.
LOVE!!! My favorite bronzer and I use it mostly for contouring. Absolutely love the smell!!! I wish there was a really cheap dupe for this, but this is definitely worth the purchase!! I've had this for a very long time and have finally hit pan, will be repurchasing soon. It is one of the few bronzers that will not make me orange like an oompa loompa.

I bought this product due to all the good reviews here. I do like it, but it's not perfect. The first time, I applied one layer and was great! Didn't make me look like I had a weird skin issue as it faded, however, the second time I tried it, I used two layers and it didn't fade like a natural tan :( It does last for several days and fades slowly and natural looking with just one layer for me. Worth giving it a try :)
