Love this product i dont understand why so many reviews. I have dry skin acne prone and normal t-zone. An i use this every night before bed leaves my skin so smooth and helps the dry flakes. I follow it up with cethaphil cream.
I love this I have it in bisque and I'm a 4.25 in bobbi brown foundation stick. I use a random eye cream wait 5 minutes then using my ring finger dab it twice then tap on the back of my hand and warm it up then dab from my tearduct down in a triangle form then apply my foundation and top of the corrector with bare minerals multy tasking powder. The corrector alone do not conceal It completly but it helps your concealer from becoming ashy gray. Thia is one of those products that you don't know how how much you need it untill you don't use it a true HG for me

I have to say I am for sure now that I am NOT a mac girl I will just stick to blushes, and shadows. This powder broke me out like crazy! All over I am in to my second week of treatment and no makeup to heal it it also made my creases like laugh lines more noticeble. It is going back to mac!

I don't know were to post this but I want to talk about the studio gear invisible loose powder! HG STATUS for me! I have it in medium and I am a nc40 mac or 4.25 in bobbi brown I also have dry to combo skin. This is like a SETTING powder it has in no way "coverage" that beeing said this powder is not chalky it silky and sets your foundation it has no oil absorbing "powers" wich is awsome during winter for dry skin people like me I just ran out of mine so back to ulta I go! Wich for 25$ its a huge tub. It lasted me a year! Best way I personally apply thia is by using a flat top brush and patting it in then buffing it.
First off I have dry, virgin hair (never colored), thin, wavy, long down to my waist. I blow dry and straighten once a week. I love this shampoo it leaves my hair soft and moisturized but not oily. I use this from september to february during the cold months and when I use heat the most it stops the hair from falling out too. I wash my hair every other day and don't use a conditioner I think that would be too much moisturizer and leave you like an oily mess. I do use the heavy cream every two weeks. Over all a hg for cold months.
Bought this in april 2011 used it AFTER I blown dried my hair big NO-NO let my hair sticky and straw like I thought I used to much (I have waist lenght hair) so I tried again wuth a pea size amount same problem. Seven months later I pickd it up again and read the instuctions lol. I used it on my damp hair about a pump started mid lenght to tips and the rest on the top blow dried it with almost no frizz and cut my straightning by half!! I use this with redken satinwear let it set on my towel dry hair wait two minues and then apply align and comb through blow dry then straightner and I have the most soft shiny fiz free hair ever. Truly a HG.
Hated this foundatiin I'm an nc40 first time trying a mac foundation. And I asked for a foundation for my extreme dry skin I guess mua wasn't very experience since she guided me to this. Like the review before me stated DRY SKIN STAY MILES AWAY. This foundation stuck to my dry patches its drying and the smell is like paint. I ended up looking like I rolledin dirt after a while. So why 3 lippies? It has great covarage would be great for oily skin

Loved it the first day. The second. By the third day it gave me a head ache as it stared to smell like medecine to me!! So I stayed away for months then re opened it again loved it by the third day I was discusted again. It smells musky and fruity at first then to me it turns into that liquid medecine I used to get As a kid.

If you have sensitive. Acneprone. AVOID THIS BRUSH it is rough, smells like a wet goat no matter how well you wash it. And loses its shape on the first wash. Had this foryears and everytime I use it it takes up more product and leaves me with an alergic reaction. Going in the trash!!
Bought it 5 or more times I have sensitive dry skimd and yes it does DRY YOU OUT. So why four lipies? Well let me tell you 1. It keeps my acne away 2. Even if is drying it is nothing my cethapils lotion can't fix. 3. It cleanses well and makeup. If you have dry sensetive acne prone skib I would suvgest you use it at night followed by your HEAVY over night mouisterizer WORKS WONDERS ONCE I AGAIN I WILL BUY!!
I don't know what to think about this mascara. You can say it is a love hate relationship ;-). Here are my points. Pros; Smudge proof. Flake proof. Lengthens. Can be layered with out clumping. No clumpling. Cons; Hard to remover lashes may fall off. Bristles are too hard on my waterline. Overall I do think I will buy again since I seem to be reaching for it more often. Just will have to be careful when removing.
I bought this foundation back in December 2010 and have half a bottle left. Not a good sign since I hate using it as it oxidizes bad after two-three hours turns orange on my tan skin. Hard to find a color match. If you look past looking like a oompa lompa it is a great foundation. Pros; Great price $23. Doesn't emphasize dry patches. Blends amazing. Great for taking pictures. Not heavy feeling. Looks natural. Medium to full coverage Cons; Oxidizes after two hours. Feels sticky after applying. Hard to control pump. Drys darker if not careful can look cakey Final thought; if it didn't oxidize and went on darker this would be an amazing foundation. Wont buy again.

Yes it is cheap. But not good on my skin it leaves a film after you wash your face not a clean feel and feels like your streching your skin. I have to use a scrub after this so I can have that clean feeling and get rid of that film that's left on my skin. On the bright side it did not brake me out or dry my skin. I will use it up but wont buy again.
