Best eyeliner ever!!! My HG!
my HG cleanser! i loveee this product...must've gone through a dozen cleansers before finding this one. every other one broke me out but boscia left my skin feeling soft and clean without stripping it dry. definitely will be repurchasing!

this product is AMAZING! i've been using this for about a week and almost all my spots are gone! i'm going to continue using it for a couple more weeks to see how the progress goes. so far i haven't had a single breakout yet so let's hope it stays that way. and you have to remember to use a spf during the days or else your spots will just get darker.

sorry, but this product was horrible. i had high hopes for it after reading the reviews. first i couldn't find a color that was suitable for my skintone. #4 was the right shade but the undertones were way too pink whereas #3 had yellow undertones but it was too light...but in the end i settled for #3 bc i didnt want my face to look "dirty". the foundation went on smooth at first but then i noticed how dry and flaky my skin looked! horrible! it looked good on my t-zone which is always oily but not on my dry cheeks. i think i'll stick to LSF #7: the color is perfect and the texture is great on my combo skin. ***EDIT*** ok so after trying it on for a month, i realize how much i LOVE this product. the dry cheek problem was fixed after switching my sunscreen to shiseido. Face fabric is great for someone who wants sheer coverage and it's great if you already have decent skin. i love this now and i barely use LSF anymore. will be repurchasing!
this product saved my face!!! i've had the worst acne you could possibly imagine and recently i had a horrible breakout. persagel has dramatically reduce the redness and swelling overnight...it's not all gone but at least it looks half decent. i'm going to keep using it for another week and see if my acne clears up. so far, no allergic reactions...only gripe is that my face become extra dry but that's why we have moisturizer =]

I really wanted to like this product..it gave me great coverage. But this was the cause behind my recent breakout of cystic acne and if your face can't handle that much oil, steer clear.
This stuff works!!! I must admit, i was very skeptical before using this product but I gave it a week and already the sparse sections of my eyelashes are as long as the rest. Now my upper eyelashes are a uniform length and my lower eyelashes are crazy long! However I didn't see a difference in the fullness or thickness of the lashes but I'm hoping a few more weeks will change that. Love this product!

i just started using this product and i'm already seeing some improvement. if you have sensitive skin that's easily irritated, i suggest using a little bit at first, once a day, maybe even every other day after you wash your face but make sure to moisturize after applying because it can get really dry. after a week, eventually increase the amount and you'll see results.
this is an OK product and nothing more. the texture is wonderful; you only need a small amount and it foams up like crazy. as for the effectiveness, i haven't really seen anything. sure it cleans off my makeup and anything else i'm wearing but it hasn't made my skin look "brighter". i'm still thinking of whether i should repurchase or not.
worst lip gloss/stain i've ever tried. the color side was way too sticky and disgusting looking. and its impossible to take off unless you use something oil-based. i tried letting the color side dry first but that didn't work out too well.
Primer/ Corrector -Napoleon Perdis - Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer

i got this as a sample from sephora and yuck i hated this as a primer, it made me breakout all over. once i stopped using it, my acne cleared up. i would've used it as a moisturizer if it hadn't made me break out. it didn't do a great job of making my foundation last either. i wont be repurchasing
i love this lip gloss! Simmer was my first juicy tube and now i have a couple of more shades from this line. It comes out a peachy shimmery beige and it looks great on my med-tan skin but i'm sure it will suit any other skin tone. definitely recommend
I received this product as a sample from Sephora so I'm glad I didn't have to pay for it. The eyeliner has a great staying power, doesn't really smudge on me and there's no need to touch up...but the glitter is too much! Maybe if there was a subtle shimmer instead, i might have repurchased...but too much glitter even for someone as young as me.
I have naturally medium-tan skin so this is perfect for a nice subtle glow. I like to apply a little to the apples or contours of my cheeks and its looks great. The problem is not to overdo it or else you'll look like you've been baking in the sun. Probably the first bronzer that hasnt made me look like an orangey mess

i love this product! I have horribly dark circles and this concealer somehow manages to hide it. It looks natural if u apply it with a concealer brush since it blends in better that way. I will definitely be repurchasing this!
