I love this color on my skin! I've always wanted a RED blush, but not too red. I've had the NARS deep throat but it was more on the pink coral side. I was really scared when I first bought it. It looks intimidating but seriously just apply this with a fluffy brush because if you do a thick condensed brush it picks up more color which will make you look like a clown! always use this light handedly, and then apply more as desired. it's hard to remove blush so be careful. this color is rare to find, as it is just PLAIN red, and no sprinkles. so all the stars you see who have just RED on their cheek, they most likely have used this. NARS exhibit a has tones of orange, so as i said, this you can't compare to the nars one.
This is seriously a great foundation! i love the coverage for your skin and i am pretty oily even if i use blot powder after this, but i definetly recommend this for everyone! it's close to the mac foundations but for a fraction of the price, and the color range is good as well. it covers my imperfections so yay!
greatest eyelash curler ever-- you think that revlon and sally hansen are great...wait until you try this.. was skeptical at first about the price and thought it would rip me off -- worth every penny in the end :)
Now see, this is what im talking about I am Asian and I have short lashes, but i'm not a monolid. this product delivers what it says and makes it dramatic, length, darkening effects, and volume I dont think there's an issue with smell, so that shouldnt be a problem one problem is that it only comes in one color, which is jet black. some might dislike that dark effect, and would rather go for a daily color like black or brown :( other than that, it delivers and does the job.. And surprisingly, it works for an ASIAN, so i should work for you ladies with bigger eyes and longer lashes
okay let me start off by saying this product is dry... like i dont know if i bought an unlucky tube of mascara but man i try to get it out of its package and no color or ingredient comes out!! its so dry :( and yea i heard it tends to get dry the color choices though, is what i like. there's plum, blue, black. blue is for eye popping purposes :D I liek the packaging though, the bottle is written neatly and it has a nice silver handle, unlike some weird ones the smell isnt too much of a problem, so eye irritation wont occur for you girls as a problem one thing i like is the brush-- it is so big and it catches my every lashes !! so thumbs up for the brush TIP : for the ladise who hates the product, when you're done with is, wash it thoroughly and use it as a eyebrow groomer/comb and also use it for afterwards when you apply mascara so you can get rid of excess clumps
I am in love with this!! some say it is more of a highlighter, which is true, but i would use it for a light pinky/golden blush :) as for nars, it's the same thing: - nice packaging - expensive price - dont need a lot, because it's pigmented overall, i think its worth it :) when youre in the light or sun, this color comes out beautifully
WOW i love this foundation!! its a little light for me becuse im like yellow olive so i got it in 150 buff cause i thougt my foudnation would oxidize.. this doesnt oxidize!! it stays the same color as you applied it in the morning. it hasnt seem to break me out and i used it for like 2 months :) one negative thing is that it dries up fast; so dont stand there and wait for it to "sink" in your skin-- once it's out of the bottle, it should be applied!! so to sum it up: -coverage is so well!! covers my nasty acne spots, scars, and bumps.. can be drying though - no breakout...YET :) and im very prone to acne, which is a sad thing :( - doesn't change color-- so you dont need to buy a shade lighter if you're scared - packaging sucks because its not a pump but oh well... it is what it is - price: i rated it a three because depending where it is, it is $17.99 for the cheapest.... thats expensive kinda, for a drugstore!!! - smell: its has a strong smell, but it smells good. I cant describe how it smells MY VERDICT: use this because it doesn't break you out as other heavy clogged foundation
I like this! I got the mini trial size for $12 for 2 50 mL bottles @ sephora! the price is the only bad thing would I buy it again? yes! it is an alternative to face lotion! this is my spray moisturizer
the thing i hate about it is: 1.) unsanitary -- the tube is like a lipgloss, where you twist up and take the product-- kinda dirtyy if you dont have clean fingers 2.) doesnt cover well, made me look chalky what I do like: when i use this on top of the two concealers i use, it gives the cherry on top look LESSON: dont use this alone, use this on top of your average concealer, and then it will blend and give a sheer look :D pimple wise-- HMM DOESNT MAKE A DIFFERENCE, but DOESNT BREAK YOU out either!
i like this, it makes my lips dolly light pink when its chapped red-- which is what i'm looking for it smells awesome too, so if you have bad breath, at least they can smell this while you're talking!

the reason why i rated it low was becaues PRICE: $27 for this FREAKIN JAR! wow, i know there's a lot in there, but that's just ridiculous Packing: when i open it, dust of colors come out-- i dont want to stain or get powder on my clothes-- so i have to becareful and open it slowly or open over a sink coverage: pretty good, it controls oil --- but beware, it has talc, mica, bismuth oxychloride, titanium dioxide which is all bad for you i believe
its SO pigmented (rich in color) that when i first bought it, i poured LOTS of it out hahha stupid of me, it was such a waste its thick in color, but don't take advantage of it like what i did-- cause it actually didn't last that long i bought it at shoppers drug mart ( CANADIAN STORE) for $9.99 in extreme black i have asian eyes and it made my eyes pop- what i was looking for-- <3
WOW THIS WORKS FOR MEE! well it doesnt reduce acne but it makes my skin damn soft and it only works for non sensitive skin people people with sensitive skin, sucks for ya! you lost it! but this helps my skin a lot, i can tell a day after i exfoliate, i can feel a new layer of skin forming and the old one just shedding **** TIP***** ~~~~~ dont scratch hard, you probably think the harder, the cleaner--- i used to do that, it just makes yur skin redder and irritated-- OH silly me~~~~
this works for my acne! i like it! 5 stars! but it takes time, it is supposed to help control acne and acne scarring, and it somewhat does, but being patient is the key

I LIKE THIS CONCEALER, but not enough to say I love it CONS: 1.) the bottle is somewhat unhygienic, you have to dip it with your fingers and put it back in the tube-- kinda like a lipgloss 2.) it's very dry so you have to put moisturizer, and for people who don't have time,you will look like a dust ball 3.) it feels THICK, i have acne prone skin, so sometimes i feel like it clogs my pores, but in reality it doesn't! 4.) This is a drugstore product, meaning there isn't MUCH color range, there is but mostly aims for light skinned people PROS: 1.) i have suffered with bad acne scarring since 13 and still have-- i had and still have SOME acne and it leaves marks now a days-- this helps cover it great.... this product is pigmented and thick-- a little goes a long way 2.) the staying power is pretty long-- i use it from 8 AM to 10 P.M, YES i mean of course any concealer will have to rub off Something, but this one doesnt rub off extremely-- like come one, what concealer can really stay until 12 hours? thats a lie .... but this is close to it,,, by 5 p.m i can see some of my acne scarring, but not a big deal 3.) price -- reasonable price for a drug store :D this is to all the makeup lovers on a budget OVERALL TAKE: It works AMAZING, but one Must tip I believe is to moisturize before you use this 2.) the price is great, and i
