After basically using a whole tube of this, I finally figured out what the fuss is about! I now really like this mascara. It gives me big, full, long lashes. I figured out that you basically need to clean off the application brush with a tissue after every use. If you do not clean the aplicator off, this mascara will flake. I will probably buy this mascara again, but will not use it for everyday because of the price.
Love!! I have been using this product for two years now. I get compliments on my skin & I believe that this product is the reason. It is quick to apply, and you do not have to use to much. I feel like I had to use way more Bare Minerals. It lasts a good eight hours, and I have oily skin. THe reason I love this product is A.) It looks amazing, and B.) It doesn't feel like there is anything on my skin. I usually buy at Macy's, but they cut back their selection of colors. I now buy my shade (beige 10) at nordstrom online because they have free shipping and more colors. Also--- It is wonderful to travel with because you can actually close the sifter- genius!

There is no crazy wow factor to this mascara. It's just a great mascara. I gave it four lippies because it does not come completely off after I use makeup remover and cleanser. This would not deter me from buying it again- I just have to pay close attention to removing it. The mascara goes on good, does not flake off during the day. I think this mascara makes my lashes just a little prettier than my normal mascara(clinique high impact), but not a huge difference. I may of may not purchase again due to the price.

Beautiful bare lips! This definately turns pink. If I go easy on the application, in one hour my lips look bare, but just a little more pink, and more even toned. I have been using this product for two days, and my lips look full and healthy. I think it looks good with or without your face being made-up. I might get rid of the rest of my balms/ glosses!
The powder itself is fantastic, and gives plenty of coverage. I believe you have to use more product with the oscillating puff than you would with a powder brush. I also think a powder brush feels much nicer when applying this powder, and is quicker. I would save the extra few dollars and buy the ageless minerale.
This is the best blush I have ever used. I have not strayed from it since I first bought it. I do not think it the perfect shade for me, but I do think it is probably universally flattering. My favorite part about this blush is it seems to give you just the right amount of color with one dip of your brush. (Not too strong a color either) So many other blushes that I have tried barely show up on your face- why would I waste my money on someting that I can't even see!
I always come back to this mascara! It does not flake off, and is not clumpy. I also think it is healthier for your eyes than some other formulas. This is not the mascara for really dramatic lashes, but perfect for everyday use- Love it!
HG Summer Day Moisturizer! I am so happy to have found this product!!! My Mineral Foundation still looks great after 8 hours when I use this murad moisturizer. The product does have a thick consistency, and is not the easiest to put on, but the results are totally worth it!!

I like this product- especially in the Summer. You have to use it right though- If you do not- you will have a bad experience like some of the other reviewers. To Use: Start to Flat iron your hair in sections. Once you have finished one section, spay this lightly, then go over the section again with your flat iron. Repeat until finished. If you use this while your hair is still wavy/curly and not ironed I'm sure you will wind up with a sticky mes:( This product works great to keep your hair from frizzing after you iron it. I reccommend- but I am still looking for a product peforms the same, but feels a little better.
