Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Liquid Liner in Perversion

Bought this on 11/14, put it on my swap list on 11/17. The brush is flimsy as ever (and I'm VERY good with applying eyeliner), and the application was horrible.

I love this lotion, its not heavy in consistency but it feels like my face is moisturized after using this. I don't use too much of it either, maybe a dime sized amount and I'm good for the whole day. Would definitely buy this again.
Made my face as dry as the Sahara Desert which led to more breakouts. I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole.

Well for one it's not foaming. For two, I never felt like my face was getting cleaned. And then I found out that it wasn't! At one point my face had dirt and dead skin that was rolling off of my face (gross, I know) and there wasn't enough witch hazel in the world to take off whatever was left. It also broke me out, but I think that that's because of the non-cleaning factor. Mandatory positive: At least it smelled good.
This was my foundation for a very long time, but I think its because I was too scared of trying something else. Its kind of cakey, but I guess that can happen with any liquid foundation. It also would break me out from time to time, and for a long period of time I stopped using it. Needless to say, I wouldn't repurchase it.
The only soap I use on my body and face! Its helped me nurse my skin back to health when I had painful cystic acne breakouts, and now I use it in conjunction with SSC's Glycolic Cleanser to help keep my acne at bay.
Very sticky consistency when rubbed on the face, perhaps due to the emulsifying effect of the friction between the hands and face? Whatever the reason, it also broke me out pretty badly and did NOTHING to clear up my blemishes.

I REALLY wanted to like this product, my best friend and my mother both use it and have no problems with it whatsoever. I, on the other hand, broke out in red pimples all along my jawline and it only got worse the more I tried to use it.
This is my staple. So much so, that I refuse to buy any other perfume out there. It has such a pretty and elegant scent to it and all it takes is about two sprays and your scent is long-lasting all day. I would definitely buy this again, and I recommend it for anyone looking to find their signature scent.

Switched to this product after being a liquid foundation user for so long (specifically, NARS). My mother uses this line and I can see why! I suffer from acne and this foundation goes on lightly but with enough coverage that you don't feel like you're wearing anything. I'm usually very self-conscious of my skin, but using BE has really changed that.
One of HG mascaras! I get long voluminous lashes without clumping. I've gone through MANY mascaras and this one is by far the best.
Let me first describe my skin type, I'm acne-prone, with a dry T-zone and oily O-zone, have some blemishes, and until I used this cleanser my face was NEVER clear! It's now become my HG cleanser, and whenever I switch I always wonder why and wind up coming back. If you're a visuals type of girl who needs suds and foam and all of that to make it seem like you have that clean feeling, you won't get that with this. It's a gel-like consistency and with the right amount of water it produces a white film but washes off well. Make sure to follow up with a good moisturizer as it can be quite drying if used 2x daily. Took off one lippie only for the drying factor.
