I use this to contour and apply blush to apples of cheeks. I've had very minimal shedding. It feels soft on face, not prickly like others. Picks up color very well. Haven't washed it yet so don't know how that will go. Will update.
I never thought I'd fall for the NARS orgasm hype, but I did. :) color is a coral w/ goldish shimmer. You can see the shimmer up close, but not from away. I'm loving it for summer. It lasts all day on me unless, I'm touching my face. Would like to try the ELF dupe for this and compare. If it were similar I probably won't buy again.

This was given to me by my sis, she thought it was too dark on her, but I think she didn't apply it right. At first I wasnt feeling it, I applied with cheap blush brush. Then got a Sigma F40 brush and now use this to contour, and I love it. It's not too shimmery, but highly pigmented, so little goes a long way.
I've been coloring my hair at home for years but I ain't no expert either. I found this product easy to use and not messy at all. I gave the 3 shakes the box calls for and it worked fine. This was way easier than liquid in my opinion. I recommend you use in a well ventilated area, because it is strong. It did itch my scalp. I have dark brown hair and used 6R light auburn, but it turned out darker more like a burgundy. :/ I'll keep trying with lighter colors though.
It's an ok product and not to expensive. I was hoping it be like cetaphil but not quite. I find it works better on me with dry skin then I rinse it off.
I'm loving it!! Ordered of ebay for a few $$ cheaper. It works well with my dry skin I start with a washed & moisturized skin then apply with a flat top brush. I would say it's a medium coverage but could probably layer on for full. Easy to wash as well. I would def order again.
I have dry skin so this was to harsh for it. It didn't remove my waterproof makeup and burned my eyes. Update: I'm using at night only and moisturize. In the mornings I use the sensitive one and it's working fine.
I have this in the medium shade and found it to be too pink for my yellow undertone. It's also a bit too creamy and would settle under my eyes. I also don't like the packaging would prefer it in a compact type.

Received in swap a while back. The first time I tried it I really didn't like it. Started using Benefit's medium for a while and now I'm reaching for this one more. It's creamy but not too creamy. I sometimes mix and match the colors. I set the powder with a Sigma E40 brush. It stays quite a while. Will repurchase if I had to.

I have only tried the small sample tube and could not get much product out of it I had to dip several times. It does work well though making my shadows last but I prefer TFSI. Pros: shadows last Cons: wand packaging, pricey Would I buy: maybe, I would like to try the other colors.

So far this is the only makeup remover to remove waterproof mascara. It says no oily residue but It does leave an oily residue that you have to rinse afterwards. I pay under $5 at walmart. I haven't tried the Neutrogena version so I can't compare. I have tried several brands of wipes but they don't work the same for waterproof. I will buy again unless I find a better one.
I like this mascara and did hold a curl on me. I also tried the carbon black but like this one much better. It is a bit difficult to remove though. Will repurchase.
Mascara is ok IMO. I use waterproof to hold a curl but it didn't last that long with this one. I have noticed a bit of flaking and I'm not sure I like the brush. It might be a bit too big. I have also noticed it has a weird smell, it's not too strong but you can smell it while applying it. I will not repurchase.
This shade is a bit dark for my taste, so I just dab it over my lips and then apply a nude lipgloss. I'm really liking it even the minty flavor. I would love to try the other shades. The only thing is that it's a bit mooshy to soft.
I have or had very dry scaly skin but I have seen an improvement since using this. Ive been using it for about 2 weeks now. I use it every other day. I also use it in combination with Estee Lauder advanced night repair after step 2 for extra protection against my dry skin. So far I am liking it and will keep using it to maintain results I've gotten so far.
