This is the only stuff that has ever actually worked for my blackheads and skin in general. I have read everywhere that your skin gets worse before it gets better, but that was not the case for me. Whenever I use it, my skin clears up. This has never dried my skin out. It seems to make my skin softer because it exfoliates my skin. I don't think its harsh. I think of this stuff as magic in a tube. I hope it works for you, but everyone is different. It is at least worth a try. Good luck!

I have a sample of this stuff. Is it supposed to sting? Ouch! The burning is crazy on me. Why is this making everyone burn so bad? I never have bad reactions to products.

I love this color. I am surprised that there isn't more hype with it. It is a light gold, silver, pewter, prettiness. It is very pigmented and smooth. It is not a highlight color. This is one of my favorite e/s buys in a while.
This is definitely a great value. The eyeshadows are nice. The palette is quite large. I might depot. The only thing that I don't like is the bronzer, which is weird because I love cargo bronzers. Its super frosty and orange. The blush is very pretty.

This is one of my favorite blushes that I own. It is highly pigmented. The texture is smooth. It lasts forever. As some other people have mentioned, the color comes off more pink on the skin than it does in the pan. It is a lilac-pink. I am warm and I pull it off just fine. The packaging is very nice. The only bad thing about the product is the price. With all of the R&R sales going on, most people get it for $20 or less. It retails for $40. There is a ton of product and it is definitely worth $20.
Does this compare to high-end foundations? No. Do I like it? Yes. This gives almost medium coverage. If you want a lot of coverage, this is not for you. I am nc20 and true ivory matches me really well. I have read that some colors are orange. I do not know if that is true, but it would not surprise me because drugstore foundations tend to be orange. The color I use is not orange. So, it definitely does not dry me out and it does not break me out. My skin is actually looking a little better. This foundation is not super matte. It is more matte than some foundations. It is not cakey on me all. For a drugstore foundation, I say it is really good. The lasting power is not so great, so wearing a primer helps.
This is a bright, sheer coral that is very wearable. It is more pigmented than most glosses and can be worn alone. I gave it 4 stars because I like really pigmented glosses, which are not that common. For most glosses, the pigmentation is good. It is not sticky. It is also not watery. Water gloss do not last. This stuff does have decent lasting power. This is probably my favorite d/s gloss. Definitely a must-have.

This creaseless shadow really does not crease like it says. It lasts forever. The color is a pretty, pewter, with slide gold undertones, but they don't show much. The texture does on smooth. Super blendable and buildable. You can get a lot of effects from this shadow from sheering it out or wearing it dark. I use it as a lid color and find it not to be too dark at all. This is an HG product for me. Do not hesitate to get shadow.
This mascara sucks. The application is goopy. One of the worst I have ever tried. I would rather get wet and wild.

While I love this blush, I don't think it is worth the hype. I tend to grab my other peaches and corals over this one for some reason, but I still like it a lot. It is sort of a bright, peachy color. You can't see any shimmer, which is nice because I hate shimmer. I like this blush, but please don't spend $50 on it.
Go Lightly is currently my favorite eyeshadow and it has been so for many years. It is a medium colored gold that does not have any orange tones in it. It is not a bronze. It is heading towards the family of antique golds, but does not have green in it. It is highly pigmented, soft, smooth and lasts forever. Warm and cool people can wear this color. I consider this a beauty staple in my collection and I have a ton of eyeshadow! Also, this is a dupe of MAC's "go" eyeshadow from the starflash collection, except stila's is better.
This is the first product that got all 5's from me. I think it is a great value. The shadows are full size. I do happen to like the packaging. Every color in the palette is nice. I love buck, virgin and naked the most. They are all pigmented. They are smooth. Even if you have a lot of neutrals, I still think this is worth getting. No, it is not LE. Many of us were misinformed by Urban Decay. There aren't any glitter bombs. One has a little but of glitter, but not too much at all.
I love this blush. In pictures online, it seems so orange, but it seems a lot more pink in person and on my skin. It is very natural on the skin if applied correctly. It is very pigmented. The color is amazing. The packaging is not the best, but I would rather have a less expensive product that is high-quality and in less glamorous packaging than to pay for packaging. Just remember that a little goes a very long way. blend away and give yourself a glowing face.

I love this blush. I think the color is so flattering. I would definitely recommend this to someone. I wish it was not a loose powder. I think that is the only thing wrong with it. It is matte, which is sooo nice. It reminds me of a matte nars deep throat, but with more peach in it. Check it out!
I love this blush. I am scared of shimmer, but it is not too shimmery on my face. It is the most flattering blush I have used. It is spendy, but I think nars is worth it,
