I usually wear light colors on my lips and am not used to red. But this lipstick has changed everything! At night I layer it to get intense deep wine color lips. For day time I usually just dab it a little to get a stain. LOVE LOVE this lipstick.
If you have oily/combination skin avoid this product like the plague! This made my skin so oily to a point that my friends had to keep handing me blotting sheets without me asking! If you have sensitive/acne prone skin than you should also avoid using this product. I noticed major breakouts near my chin area (which I usually never have) and since I stopped using this product they have all cleared up. So, if you have oily or acne prone skin than I would recommend this product for you.
Before using this product I used Clinique's moisturizing gel which was ok but never noticed much of an improvement in my skin. I have super sensitive acne prone skin and this product has not only prevented acne breakouts but it has also improved my complexion. I still use the rest of my Clinique gel for the super dry area such as around my eyes and around my chin and neck. I love this product and consider it by far the best lotion I have ever used.
I love this shampoo and conditioner because it controls the frizz without weighing my hair down. I usually don't have to use any products (such as hair gel or hair spray) after using these two which is great.
I have combination skin (an oily T-zone and dryness mostly around the eye and chin area). My skin is also super sensitive and acne-prone. This product does not over dry my skin and keeps my acne under control which I love. It also tightens my pores. I advise using this once a day, preferably at night before you sleep. A little goes a long way with this product so just pour a little onto a cotton ball or two and gently pad it across your face and try not to use it around the eye area.
Ok, first of all this is a terrible under eye concealer (it creases like crazy!) I don't use this for covering acne because it's texture it so thick that it accentuates them (not good). I use this only as a lid primer: It stays in place the whole day (making my eye makeup last longer) and also covers spider veins amazingly. I have medium skin and use NW 30 which is perfect for my skin tone. The thing I love about this is that as soon as I dab some on my lids my eyes wake up. Would repurchase. Definitely better than those MAC primers for eyes.

So sad they discontinued this product:( I absolutely love the colors and texture of this quad. I use the first color in the tear dot of my eye, second shade (very similar to MAC's All that Glitters) on the entire lid, third or fourth (or sometimes both) in the crease. I always get compliments when I use this. By far the past eyeshadow quad I have ever bought.

I have tried many brands from YSL, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Lancome, Givenchy to Clinique. But this has been my favorite because: 1. unlike the other brands I have used it does not break me out. 2. love the color selection. I have medium skin with cool undertones and matched with shade # 128 which is perfect. 3. comes with a pump which I like. 4. I have combination skin and have had no problems in terms of oiliness or dryness.
My skin is medium with cool undertones and this does not show up on me that much. I would recommend this for people with lighter complexions that don't own a matte bronzer such as Benefits Hoola (which I use sometimes in the crease).
Cleansers -Aveeno - Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser

I use this product because it is gentle and does not aggravate my super sensitive acne-prone skin.
I have been using this for over almost two years now and have yet to hit pan. I used smashbox suntan matte before which is kind of similar to this. I like to use this because it looks natural on me and is great for contouring. My only complaint is the packaging.
I chose this color yesterday when I was getting a manicure. It is the perfect neutral gold for fall/winter months as it is not too yellow.
This i a dark teal color. Received many compliments on this. If it were a tad lighter it would have been perfect. I guess i'm becoming more interested in lighter colors. This is great if you like dark colors on your nails. Wouldn't recommend this for Spring/Summer.
Before buying this I would use mac's fleur power and Mocha a lot (both have pinkish-rose undertones). With the arrival of Fall I wanted something with a hint of peach in it. Melba is an interesting combination between pink and peach, but it is more on the peach side. Overall it is a beautiful color that would look good on most medium skin tones. Would definitely repurchase this once I finish.
This is my favorite nail polish at the moment! The formula is fantastic and the color is gorgeous! Have gotten so many compliments on it!
