I was so disappointed. I like a lipstick to last quite awhile like this one advertises it does. Shoot, I've had regular old tube lipsticks that lasted way longer than this. I actually threw them away after a few uses.
I love this mascara! It curls and stays on my lashes and doesn't ever flake. The best thing is how it separates the lashes and doesn't glob on. I bought it at Costco the first time. Can't remember what I paid for two, but I'm glad I tried it. I've only tried the purple one. I'm picky about clumping mascara and this one is perfect for me.
I can't live without my CILS. I haven't tried any others, but have purchased this one several times. I can throw my eyelash curler away and I have gotten many compliments on my long lashes. It can be inconvenient because my lashes hit my sunglasses !!!

After reading about this on MUA, I had to try it. It works great - better in fact than many primers I have tried and paid much more money for. I do think perhaps Philosophy brand filled in my large nose pores a little bit better but, hey, for this price I can use the Philosophy on the nose and Monistat for the rest - and without guilt for using it all over my face !!!! Thx so much!

I am not allergic to anything, but I sure am to Bare Escentuals. I am really bummed because I can't take it back now. My eyes burned and my whole face itched and burned. Not sure if it works or not!!!
Wow! I am so surprised at the older, bad reviews. I just love this stuff. I found out I need to apply the mascara immediately, before the Cils has time to dry. That really helps. My eyelashes curl by themselves now! And it come off easily. The cosmetician said woman use less mascara with this and I can see that may be true. It especially helps my thinner lower lashes. I don't know if they've improved this stuff since the bad reviews, but it sure has worked for me - no matter which mascara I happen to have in my hand.
Concealers -L'Oreal - True Match Naturale Mineral Concealer

I was amazed at how well this product works. I couldn't see a difference between that and the BM. I do put a PRIMER (not BM) under the foundation and on really tired days, I have put on a little cream concealer, finishing it with the L'Oreal. I am very happy. I put it on with a light touch and not too much product on the brush. I have all the BM stuff but could have saved my money. This takes the shine off the cream concealer and my horrible dark cirlces are 85% better. This is the first time I have felt that anything actually helped!! Hooray.
I love this mascara. I do curl my eyelashes and this is not heavy so it doesn't weigh them down so I don't lose the curl. The eyelashes are nicely separated and natural looking. It's my one indulgence which I buy after having tried hundreds of others over the years. I also love the eyeliner gels.
