Tinted Moisturizer -Pixi - illuminating tint & conceal

The best tinted moisturizer out there for sensitive/acne prone skin. Has spf and doesn't get greasy or oxidize into some awful color. Concealer in cap works well covering up redness and acne scars-I use a different concealer for undereye area as this shows creasing. Overall great product-just wish it were a little cheaper since it's kind of small. $30 at Target.
Wow-I generally don't review products on here, but this is some great shampoo. I know, I know, it's shampoo-but this stuff is amazing. Great smell, excellent packaging, and cleaned my hair while leaving it feeling healthy and soft. The leave-in spray is a great follow-up to this. The only downside is the price, but I like the results enough to keep buying it.
I wanted to love this as so many people do, but on me this is just awful. I smelled like an old woman wearing bathroom spray or something.

What an amazing product for oily skin. I have tried everything over the years to find something that took away shine all day and minimized my pores. My face looks absolutely flawless. Normally I am not a huge MAC fan, but I will buy this for as long as they carry it. If you have oily skin, you will not be disappointed.
I wanted to love the Yes To Carrots entire brand, and sadly I must include this in one of the disappointments. It is not moisturizing, has no flavor/smell. Needed to reapply all too often. Would not buy again.
Decent lip balm-the flavor is great if that's your thing-but like other reviewers stated, it just doesn't stay on. I need to reapply and reapply. The tube has not broke yet, but looks as though it will at any moment, so packaging is not great. Overall good feel on lips and love the sweet minty flavor!

Yep-this product pretty well sucks. It left very little shine and did lighten my friends hair, as well as mine. Very disappointing and a little puzzling.
Just picked this up based on the reviews here-wow, this is the perfect "light" red lipstick. It reminds me of Benetint, but much better. I think this is one of those reds that would flatter anyone, and applied lightly turns into a perfect almost coral color. I agree with the others on the packaging and not sure why they would not put the name on the bottom, but I am pretty sure I won't forget a name like Fire Shine!
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)

Wow. I have been spending way too much money on uppity powders for years now. This is an amazing lightweight, good coverage powder that doesnt get cakey, doesnt turn orange and looks great! Much better than MAC, and most others for that matter.
Oh my. I am shocked anyone would use this. I put it on and looked shiny and orange. It slid right off, and made my pores look huge. Wondering how this works for anyone. Maybe people with extra dry skin.
Wanted to like this, but ended up very cakey and orangey. I even took it back to the store to get a different color, and the rude MAC employee told me that I was wrong and it was my color. Huge orange line around face. Much too expensive for what it is. Not good for even remotely oily skin. Save your money and try Rimmel Stay Matte. Amazing powder and only three bucks! Compare!
Really wanted to like this product, but after trying it, I have to agree with the other negatives. Mine turned splotchy and orange. Makes pores very visible and I would not recommend for even remotely oily skin, as it already has a high shine to it.
Love this! Been using this for years at night underneath my eyes and on my lips. Only downside is the packaging and spillage.
