This is absolutely beautiful and is awesome with my blue eyes. I have worn this color every day since my original purchase a year ago, and I have just recently hit "pan" on this. I get very bored very quickly with eyeshadow until now. I use the UD primer and then this shadow, and the color stays true and last through the whole day. I find it applies perfectly with hardly any fall out. I receive alot of compliments on how my eye color stands out, not how my eyeshadow stands out, which is my goal.

Because of all the hype over BB Creams, I finally had to try one for myself to see what the hype was all about, so I chose this one. I purchased mine in the shade they list as Light, and have been using it daily for approximately three weeks. I am LOVING this product so much, although I think I am using mine in a different way then most. I apply this on as a primer (for lack of a better word), and have been receiving the following results. A. Goes on flawless (beautiful color match for my skin B. Evens my skin out perfectly. Where I'm red on my cheeks, I simply apply a bit more product, which covers redness beautifully. C. No cakey or heavy feeling at all. Is not blotchy. D. Works fantastic with my air brush makeup (Air Mineral). My makeup glides on over this leaving a truly "poreless" finish E. My makeup does not become greasy (I have oily skin), nor does it fade the least bit during a whole day of wear. I have even been wearing this just by itself with a bit of blush, and it is fantastic by itself! I am very, very pleased with this BB cream.
I really like this! With the E.L.F. products you never really know how good the quality is going to be, but this primer lives up to what it promises. It is very easy to apply (you just need a small amount), and my eye color does not crease or fade. I have oily lids but this primer keeps everything fresh and in place for a good eight hours. Because this product is so cheap, I would strongly suggest you ladies give it a try before spending more money on the other well known primers.
Purchased this shade (sky line pink) about three weeks ago because it looked nice from what I could see from the opening in the top of the tube. Once home, I was not really impressed with how it looked on my lips, and I was just going to throw it in with all my other lipsticks that didn't really make the grade. However, I thought this was such a lovely color that I just had to give it one more shot. I found that when I applied this color first and then topped it with Bare Escentuals Buxom gloss in Kate, my lips had a beautiful, soft baby pink blush of color that is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm sooo glad I didn't give up on this color because it now is my every day lipstick.
Love this product. I noticed a few reviewers stated that it left their skin feeling greasy, but this may be because you only need a couple of small dots of this product. I have not had any problems with breakouts or rash of any kind. I use this on my legs right after I get out of the shower. I do not towel my legs off first, i apply a small amount to my damp skin which locks in the moisture. My skin feels wonderful after every use.
After seeing sooo many positive reviews for these new Lip Butters, I found myself being sucked into trying them. So, I purchased the LB in Cupcake the other day hoping (but not expecting) to love it as much as other reviewers. Well Doggone it, I fell in love with it like all the other reviewers! This is a beautiful, sheer pink that makes the color of my eyes pop! Looks lovely against my pale skin and blue eyes. Very creamy and gentle to apply. Am buying another one to keep in my purse so I have it at all times. I paid about seven dollars at Rite Aid for this, and I think it was money well spent.

After reading the mostly favorible reviews, I decided to give this product a try. So far this is a pretty awesome product! My makeup stays as fresh as when I apply it in the morning. I was concerned that the smell was going to be horrible as the reviewers warned, but there is absolutely no smell to mine...yeah!!! The only reason this got a four rating is because( as the previous reviewers stated), the spray bottle is not the greatest. So, for three dollars, I would suggest giving this awesome little product a try.
Love this eyeliner. The color looks amazing against my blue eyes without making me look "raccoonish". What I really love though is that this eyeliner has TRUE staying power on my lower lash line. The only reason I took one mark off is for the fact that I find this liner pencil hard to sharpen, even with the best of sharpeners. However, the beauty of the color and the staying power far exceeds the difficulty of sharpening. Will most assuredly be purchasing again.
Awesome color! Lovely brown(ish) color with a faint hint of gold flecks. This is a beautiful "go to" polish that will compliment everything in my wardrobe. Application was streak free and very smooth.
LOVE this blush! On my paler skin this looks very natural and warm. This being a warmer tone, I was afraid it would turn "orange" like so many warmer blushes do, but NO. As one reviewer stated...it is very polished and refined looking. This does not look like a teeny bopper type blush. My blue eyes POP, POP, POP with this blush. This might be a more expensive blush, but it is worth every penney.
This is a really lovely lip gloss. It does not have a sparkle or glitter look to it, but what it does have is a soft, beige tint to it. Gives my lips a very natural and soft "nude" look. The only problem I have experienced is that it does not seem to last a substantial amount of time, which is why I took off one "lip" point.

Alright...when I first read all the good reviews on using this as a primer, I really thought you all were crazy, BUT I decided to put all your good reviews to the test. This stuff is great! It goes on so silky and leaves my skin silky as well. My makeup goes on smoothly and it truly keeps my face oil free all day. Thank You to all you MUA ladies...you know what you're talking about!

How to describe this scent.....DISGUSTING! My nose must have taken a hike in the store when I bought this junk, because at the time, I thought it was a fresh and light scent (my favorite type of scent). Once home, and after showering, I applied this junk and couldn't get back in the shower fast enough! This is a very cheap and sour turning product. Also bought the body spray....kids, just say NO!
THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!! Love the lavender base color, and with the added 3D glitter effect, turns out to be very, very pretty. Color goes on smooth and there was no streaking. This is really worth trying!
This was my first Essie purchase, and sadly I am not real pleased. The color is so very pale on me that it takes at least four coates to get a hint of color. I tried several times, but I could never seem to achieve a smooth, clean finish. Color is adorable, just sadly not on me. I will however, try some other Essie colors.
