I heard so many good things about this lip balm but it does nothing for my lips. It doesn't feel like anything goes on, and you have to reapply so many times just to feel a tiny bit on your lips. Its almost as if it even dries out my lips more than moisturize them. It smells really yummy and has cute packaging but its way overpriced and doesn't work. Save your money.
This powder didn't neutralize anything. I didn't expect full coverage, but it didn't even have slight coverage. Individually, the colors did absolutely nothing. Swirled all together, it is a little better but definitely doesn't look natural or smooth. The powder just sits on top of the skin and doesn't blend into looking natural. It also broke up into tiny pieces inside of the compact without being dropped. I guess for the price some would love it but why not put that $3 towards a better quality product that actually works.
For the price you can't go wrong. Its dirt cheap, and I can tell. The glue starts to unstick and the handle on mine is very loose. I didn't expect the quality to be that great... and although it is a powder brush, it doesn't apply my powder that evenly. It doesn't seem to pick up pressed powder that well. But I guess overall it gets the job semi done. For me, I'd rather save the 3 bucks and put it towards a better quality brush.

This is probably my favorite concealer that I have tried. Its very creamy and doesn't crease under my eyes like a lot of concealers do. I use the neutralizer for my dark circles and then dab the light shade over top and my circles are completely hidden. The setting powder works very well but I still use my finishing powder over it so that it blends with the rest of my face. The medium shade works well for blemishes, but it doesn't quite conceal my many dark acne scars. My only complaint is that its not a lot of product for the price, but I will continue to use this concealer until I find one that works better.

After going through a whole bottle I'm not sure what this product did for my hair. It never felt clean after using and my hair felt more oily and weighed down than before. (I have fine, straight hair). I followed the directions and rinsed thoroughly, but it just never felt soft and clean after use. I did notice a lot of my hair coming out in the shower but I'm not positive that its from this product. I have definitely used a lot better hair products for wayyyy cheaper. Don't know what all the hype is about for Wen, but for me its not worth the price.
Because of my acne I have tried a lot of products with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide in it. Turns out those chemicals are too harsh for my skin and only make it worse. I tried the enzyme cleansing gel as a last resort and now I wish I tried it sooner. It didn't clear up my skin on its own, but it didn't irritate my acne or make it worse. It doesn't feel like a face wash, as it doesn't foam or soap up. While you may not feel a big difference after washing, you will definitely notice a difference in your skin after repeated use. Its extremely gentle on the face which is why I highly recommend it for sensitive or acne-prone skin. Definitely use wipes to remove makeup first and then cleanse with the gel. I recommend to follow it with the Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion (toner). I have had my bottle since March and am just now running out. So while it is a bit pricey, the 8oz bottle has lasted me 6 months! You only need a little bit of the product, a little goes a long way. Your face will feel smoth and oil-free. Give it a try!

I wouldn't say this is a bad concealer, but it isn't great either. I use the neutralizer and it does an okay job covering my dark circles if paired with another brightening shade. It does crease a lot so I'm constantly smoothing it out with my finger throughout the day. For the price, I've definitely tried much better concealers and probably will not be repurchasing.
Liquid -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup

This is probably the best liquid foundation I have used. I have very oily skin and lots of acne scars on my cheeks. No, it didn't clear up my acne (I didn't expect it to) but it didn't cause any breakouts either which is huge for me. It had medium to full coverage for me but I always used concealer and powder with it. I also found a shade that matches my skin pretty well which is hard for me to find. The only downside to this product is the finish. It looks and feels extremely wet so I would never wear this without a powder. It makes my skin oily within the first hour of applying. Because of that I have switched to a BB cream, but if I ever go back to wearing a foundation it will probably be this one.
I love this BB cream!!! I will never use liquid foundation again after using this. I have very oily skin and have lots of acne scars on my cheeks. The coverage is very light but I wear a concealer and finishing powder over it and my scars are completely covered. It does not break me out, and covers my blemishes well when I start to get some acne. I accidently got a shade too light but now I prefer it as it brightens up my skin tone. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything on my face, which I love. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Its cheap on Amazon plus it has SPF 42; an awesome bonus! Definitely give it a try!!
I have very oily skin and lots of acne scars around my cheeks. With this powder I only wear a BB cream and concealer underneath and it has great coverage; something that is hard to find with my scars. This powder has the only color I've found that matches my skin the best, but its still either a little too dark or a little too light. I've recently started breaking out again and my skin has been sensitive to certain products, so I am trying a more expensive brand for now but if it doesn't work out I'm definitely coming back to Fit Me.
*Update* After finishing the bottle I had I realized I didn't give this product a chance and was totally wrong! This is now my favorite mascara lol! I scrape the wand on the side before applying so it doesn't clump, and when used with an eyelash curler it makes my lashes longer than any other mascara does. I def spoke too soon and will be using this as my main mascara. One of the worst mascaras I've tried. Other than the clumping and flaking, my eyelashes look no different after putting it on! And I have short thin lashes. It gave me no length or volume whatsoever. Plus the wand is a terrible mess of bristles. Complete waste of money. Shoulda stuck with Maybelline Falsies.

I was looking for a longer lasting concealer for my acne scars and stumbled across this product. I must say I'm impressed with the coverage and it really does last! But the color selection isn't great, and it doesn't match my skin completely. I use the medium beige but it looks a little orange. I also can't double it up as an under-eye concealer because its too dark and orange. I like to use a highlighter or neutralizer for my dark circles, so I need a separate concealer for that. They do carry a neutralizer in this line but I haven't tried it out yet. Anyways, for the price I'd say it's definitely worth a try!
Foundations -Unlisted Brand - Lucy Minerals Foundation

I'm soo disappointed that this foundation didn't work for me. I have oily, acne-prone, and recently sensitive skin and wanted to find a mineral makeup that worked. I ordered a bunch of samples in all different colors, and none of them matched my skin. I tried mixing them together in every combination, still no match. They all have such a pink undertone, that I looked like I just put a light blush all over my face. It also has poor coverage, it didn't cover my acne scars at all, and concealer looked very caked under it. On top of all that, it didn't blend in..it just sat on top of my skin and was obvious I was wearing powder. Despite the color, it did not look natural on me. Unless you have a pinkish undertone and clear even skin, I would not recommend it. This was one of the worst I've tried, nothing good about it =/
I love this eyeshadow! The color is amazing, especially over the Urban Decay Primer Potion- really makes the color pop and stays on very well! It's a bit pricey for me though...I end up not wanting to use it because I don't want to run out! Haha.
I really like this lip cream- it smells yummy and looks very pretty. But it is a bit drying and I need to wear a lot of chapstick under it. I'm also disappointed that it doesn't last very long at all :( have to re-apply a lot...but I love the way it looks on my lips and its fairly cheap so I mostly will keep using it.
