Although this does slightly clump, overall it is a great mascara for dramatic lashes. Reminds me quite a bit of Hypnose by Lancome but I found that this doesn't dry out as fast. My lashes are dark and a decent length already, so if it works on me then I would say its worth a try for anyone else.
I agree with another user in that I had to be patient with the results as they were gradual. It didn't irritate my skin and it was a good light moisturizer underneath my makeup (remember to use an SPF product too).

Something about this cleanser was too drying and really didn't fit well with my skin. Thank goodness I got a few samples to try. I will not be using it ever again.

Left my skin oily half way through the day. I'm not very fond of this line but my dermatologist is. If you have dry, 'partially' sensitive skin this could work.
Sensitive skin beware, don't be fooled by the title, it heats up more than it cools! This can possible work better for more acne prone skin but not those that are irritated easily.
This was an okay cleanser but its definitely not 'ultracalming' as I even left it on for a minute before rinsing off. Doesn't clean off even light makeup all the way. I tried it for a week and then returned it.
My mother and I both experienced red, irritated skin after this. My skin is actually much more sensitive than her's and she stayed puffed up for quite a while. I would NOT recommend this for sensitive skin.
This left my skin tight and I would definitely not recommend it for dry/sensitive skin since mine is more on the combination side. It felt like Dermologica's calming cleanser with the signature spicey Aveda aroma, and I personally wasn't amused by either. You're better off using Cetaphil.
I'm still not sure what this does. I tried it on different people and it still didn't do much. Maybe I just don't see it ;)

It doesn't do what it says it will in regards to adequately covering like your foundation would; however, it does work well as a finishing powder.
I read all the reviews on this product and decided to try it out since I've had a hard time findind an eyeliner that is automatic, smooth, and dark dark dark (I already have olive skin and dark brown eyes) I like this product and the concept of buying less expensive refills. I will definitely stick with this for a while!
I already have dark eyelashes so I needed a power enhancer, and this is it! Until now I was satisfied with Mary Kay because it didn't irritate my eyes and did the job. Besides the minimal clumpiness that can form,however, this mascara is excellent and definitely my HG!
