I love this cream. I mix it with my foundation to get a healthier look. You only need a little bit, so the little jar will last forever. I would have preferred it if it came in a tube or bottle, but that does not make the product less good. I would definitely not wear it as a moisturizer as it is waaaaaay too shiny, instead mix it with other products. As it lasts forever I am just hoping they will start carrying this product again before I finally run out of it.
A former roommate of mine got the most beautiful looking skin with this stuff, but for me it does just not work. I think it is because my skin has some dry patches. It makes me look totally dried out, so I would not recommend it for dry skin and definitely do recommend to try it before you buy it.
I have to admit I was a bit afraid when I first tried this blush. I am the definition of fair skin, so I was afraid I would end up looking like a clown. But when applied with a very, very light hand (and in my case a kabuki brush to blend it out), it is one of the most beautiful colours I have ever tried. I also tried using a bit more of the blush underneath the MAC face & body foundation and it also gave a very subtle, healthy glow. The only downside is that it is a cream blush and after a while it will end up looking like a hot, pink, mess. But would definitely buy again.
I love this colour. It's a nice dark and deep shade of green. I usually use it as an accent colour with patina (crease and lid) and grain (inner 1/3 of lid). Where I use humid in the outer v and as a eyeliner on about 1/3 of the lower as well as upper lashline. Might be a bit more on the upper.
Finally a foundation that is really cheap and seems to somewhat match my skincolour. Fortunately it is crazy organge. So, I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, I am not a big fan. My skin is quite good and I am just looking for sheer cover to even out my skin colour. I find this product does not blend into the skin. My nose ends up feeling like it's made of rubber. The foundation also makes makes me look old, every little line is emphasized to the point where you see lines you didn't even know you had. Finally, for some reason I seem to be able to get at least twice the amount of product I need when just giving the tube a slight squeeze. So even though it's dirt cheap, I will not be buying this again.
A great blush in my opinion. Like many said, it's supposed to be a Nars Orgasm dupe, however this one is a lot more pigmented. With my fair skin I really have to apply very little product. I find it also a little less shimmery than the Nars Orgasm one, but it might just be that you need so much of the Nars blush that you end up with a lot of shimmer as well.
Unfortunately most colours turn ash grey on my skin. Some other colours are very poorly pigmented. I really do not understand the hype.

I used the colour medium ash, and it lives up to its name, it makes my whole face look "ashy".

I just love this shampoo & conditioner. The smell is lovely and sweet and it really does a great job when it comes to volume. A few weeks after I started using it my hairdresser said it felt like I had more hair than before.
My favourite affordable mascara. I have naturally long lashes (sorry) so I do not need to lengthen my lashes, I am just looking for more definition. This mascara does a perfect job. It really separates my lashes, makes them look fuller, and gives them the perfect colour (I use blackbrown).
I like this concealer. It is only one I have used that does not cause grey circles or crease in the little lines around my eyes. However, if you are looking for full coverage this product (colour light) may not be the best solution for you.

Great moisturizer. I use it as nightcream. It even made my little lines fade. It leaves your skin feeling ultrasoft.

In my opinion the worst moisturizer ever! I ended up with large spots all over the place. I guess it's because it is full of mineral oils and other nasty stuff.
I have really mixed feelings about this toner. One the one hand it is full of alcohol and smells like your skin will dissolve when using it. On the other hand, it makes my skin look incredibly clear. No breakouts, no large pores, just perfect clear skin. I decided to use it once a day and use a milder version in the morning.
I love the colour of this blush. It gives me a healthier look. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is that it seems to vanish during the day.
