I really like this mascara. The bad reviews kind of scared me but I had already bought it so I tried it. I have naturally long lashes and it did a nice shop at added volume and length. Its a nice deep black and I like the formula they use because its kind of wet. The only thing is after a few coats it can get clumpy..but I would for sure repurchase!
Love this stuff! If anyone is new to liquid liners this one is soo great. I always go back to it after I try something new. It is a very black bold color which we all want and it lasts all day. The brush is nice and you can get that fine line if you want. The only thing is after you have it for awhile like most things it starts drying up and is harder to apply..but just buy another one..its that good!
There is some good. This is for sure a full coverage long lasting foundation which I really wanted! It really does last all day and provides great coverage. Now for the not so great. I had a hard time finding my color and ended up getting golden beige which was ok in the combination/oily. It is pretty hard to blend and dries to quickly which can cause it to look uneven. I used this with my sonia kashuk flat top which I love but it was still hard to blend. It can look like you have a mask on as well. The worse thing about this is it made me break out horribly! Like worse than I ever have. For that reason I will never buy this again. I am trying to fix my face to clear this up but maybe for some people this won't break them out. I wouldn't recommend for acne-prone people but if your skins ok and you need that heavy coverage that last long you could try this.

I've only used this for the first time today but so far I am pleased with it! It covers very well and is a perfect color match. I have the ivory shade. I used this on both my under-eyes and acne and did a good job at both. I just hope this doesn't break me out but I will edit if it does. It shouldn't because its talc-free and non pore-clogging. I would purchase again!

I really like this foundation. I have never really gotten into liquid foundations but I wanted to try some. This is my favorite so far. It has very nice medium to full coverage and really does a good job of lasting. I have pretty oily acne prone skin and this did good with not making me oily and did not break me out. I use this with the sonia kashuk flat top brush which I really like to apply this but be careful because it can look cakey. All in all I am on my second tube but I am going to try revlon colorstay because I have heard good reviews as well. If that one doesn't work as well I will defiantly come back to this. I really recommend!

I have to say one of the best drugstore acne cleansers out there. I have tried almost every face wash out there for my acne and this one surely ranks for sure one of the highest. I never heard of triclosan before but it works better then those harsher acne medications. My face is finally clearing up after spending so much money..thanks to this. I defiantly recommend! EDIT: ...After awhile It stopped working and my face broke out bad...I'm, not sure if it was something else I was using on my face but this was not keeping it clear. I knock it down to 3 lippies instead of 4.
I really liked this product at first...When I put it on it has a nice glow a nice light amount of coverage but it is build-able. I always like when I first put it on. What I hate is how it wears. After maybe 3-4 hrs it starts getting kinda uneven and especially if its hot or humid it looks terrible. I wish it stayed the way it looks from the beginning but re-applying later in the day never looks like it did that morning. I would re-purchase if I couldn't find another mineral drugstore that I liked better. But the shimmer like some others said it does have but I like it. Its not glittery it just doesn't make your face look dull it makes it look healthy.
