Concealers -Smashbox - Photo Op Under Eye Brightener

I would definitely re-purchase this product. I know that u can apply a concealer over it, but I never feel like I have to. I love that it looks natural and it really does brighten up my eye area.
I love this lip gloss, especially in Light Brown 05 (rose nude). I know it says brown, but the explanation in brackets is better suited. It doesn't feel sticky or goopy on my lips, and I love the fact that it doesn't have any sparkles or at least any obvious sparkles like other lip glosses.
I know that there are a lot of bad reviews for this product, but I definitely have to say that I LOVE IT! This chap stick not only smells good, but it tastes good as well. I haven't had any problems with residue on my lips, and i find it easy to apply my Sephora lip gloss over.

I think that this product does relieve chapped lips, but I really can't stand the smell. A few of my friends have the strawberry flavour and it is a hell of a lot better than this one. So my suggestion is, if u are looking for an alternative to vaseline, get the strawberry version of this product.
Like another person commented, i really don't have anything positive, or negative to say about this product. All I can truly say is there is a lot of hype surrounding this product and at least in my opinion it didn't live up to that.
I really don't understand why this product seems to be getting good reviews from some websites and magazines. This is the most expensive self tanner i have ever bought, and it was also by far the worst! I follwed the instructions very carefully, and when i woke up the next morning, i looked like a leopard...i literally had spots of tan in some areas, and other areas were definitely streaky. It was a horrible outcome, which left me scrubbing myself, everyday, hoping that it would fade faster. I am however, proud to say that i did return this product! (good ol' Sephora and their lenient return policy)

I have tried other self-tanners (Aveeno, Olay, Fusion, Jergens), and I found this to be one of the worst. I think it's probably because it does have a bronzer, which is nice when applying, but definitely not so nice when it stains clothing or sheets, even though u've allowed it to dry before putting them on. I must say the colour was decent, but the smell was kinda bad.

I have tried a lot of self- tanners (Aveeno, Jergens, Fusion, Clinique) and I found this to be one of the best (tied with Aveeno). It produced a nice colour and it did not have an offensive smell, like other self-tanners.

I think of all the self-tanners I've tried (Jergens, Olay, Fusion, Clinique). This was probably one of the best (tied with Olay). It doesn't have a horrible scent, and it produces a nice colour (no orange!)
I have tried several self-tanners before this (Aveeno, Olay, Fusion Clinique). For some reason I found that Jergens has been winning some readers choice awards in some magazines and websites, so i was thinking this must be good...I WAS WRONG! I don't think it's anything special, it doesn't give u that great of a colour, and on top of that IT STINKS! (literally) I'm not one to complain, but i found the smell to be really offensive. My suggestion is to try either Aveeno or Olay.

I didn't like this product at all, I prefer the Clinique TM. It made me look as though I was sick.
i LOVE this fragrance! I'm really into fruity, fresh scents, and whenever i spray this, it reminds me of being on the beach. I find that guys like the scent as well.
Whenever I feel like wearing a powder foundation I always opt for BE. I like that it looks natural, and I feel as though my skin can breathe. My skin can be sensitive to certain ingredients, so I do like the fact that it is made from minerals, and i've never broken out because of it.
Powder -Clinique - Perfectly Real Compact Powder Foundation

First of all, I'm not really into powder foundation, I like tinted moisturizers instead. I have used this brand, as well as the Sephora brand powder. They were both fairly good, but i didn't like the fact that i felt so fake after applying it. I think that if you are looking to buy a powder foundation i would suggest BE.
I thought I'd take a risk and try this product out, seeing as though i've never tried a cream to powder foundation before. First of all it's a "one shade fits most", and upon application, i found that it did not fit me. At first glance (in the packaging), the colour looked as though it would suit me, but after applying, it definitely was obvious that it had some pink undertones, that did not mesh well with my skintone. I would not recommend this product to anyone who has yellow or neutral undertones.
