I had a horrific reaction to this face wash. Even though I have relatively clear skin, my face was feelings a little bumpy so I thought I might try something a little more intense then my usual neutrogena foaming face wash. I used it for about 4 days only at night time and my face broke out in dozens of tiny whiteheads. I looked like I had a disease, they were itchy and painful and my face was swollen. I have no idea what I was allergic to because it def wasn't the SA, I've used that before. The only spot that didn't break out was my nose because thats the oiliest part of my face. Beware when using this.

This product worked fairly well on me but made my hair slightly dry. When I used it on my sister, however, her hair practically started breaking off it was so drying (she has very curl hair)! After looking at the ingredients, we noticed that it contained alcohol so maybe your hair will be protected from heat but it will instead be damaged by all of the alcohol you're spraying onto your hair. Be careful of this as many styling products contain alcohol. Try Nexus Heat Protectxx, its alcohol free and works very well IMO.
I can't understand all the bad reviews for this product. It separates my lashes amazingly well, adds length and volume, and stays on all day while retaining the same curl I gave it this morning. It's awesome. And yes, it has a perfumey smell, but it's not THAT bad. I can't smell my eyelashes throughout the day like some people claim. The only reason I gave this a 4 is that it's hard to get the lashes at the corner of my eye because the brush is pretty big. Otherwise, I personally love this mascara.
I love this! It's highly pigmented but easy to fix if you mess up. It lasts all day (I haven't really noticed any flaking) and the little applicator tip is very easy to work with. Great liner.

I love the colorstay foundation so I thought this would work just as well. It doesn't. It's really cakey and gets right into those fine lines. Also, it covers blemishes but it's such a cakey product it almost makes the areas you covered more noticeable, if that makes sense. It makes the skin look very dry. I'll be going back to my mousse concealer.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner

According to everyone on MUA this product is amazing so I'm not sure if I just got a bad batch or something but this stuff is horrible! It has an extremely watery consistency so it looks grey on the skin instead of black. It comes off almost immediately. The felt tip is too flexible so it's difficult to work with. Overall, just a disappointing product. I'm returning it asap and sticking with my prestige liquid liner (amazing).
I love these shadows! They're beautifully pigmented and are perfect for creating smokey eyes for a night out. Yes, they are a bit powdery but that is easily forgiven because of the high pigmentation. A little goes a long way with these shadows.

This product is ok. When you first apply, it gives great coverage and seems to dry to a nice, powdery, matte finish. However, I have combination skin and about 4 hours after application I feel extremely greasy in my T-zone. The foundation seems to wipe right off when I touch it and out in natural light I look like I'm not even wearing any. I've tried wearing this with and without moisturizer, with and without oil control primer, with both, and with nothing and always get the same result. I would definitely say if you only plan on wearing this for a few hours a day, it's great and worth the price. But for a long, 8 hour work day, I would invest in something with more staying power that keeps oilies at bay.
I wanted to love this product but it was horrible for my skin. I have mild breakouts and clogged pores so I thought this would clear all of that up. Not the case. Instead it caused me to get very painful breakouts that I've never experienced with any other product. Also, after using it I went out in the sun for a few hours and it caused the tip of my nose to become raw and red and eventually scab over! It was gross and I still have redness there even though it's 2 monthes later. This product is far too harsh and grossly overpriced. Maybe it would be better for severe acne but if you have mild, avoid this. PS: This will bleach your towels! So don't use anything nice to dry your face. =-)
