Best sunblock/primer ever. I use this everyday and it doesn't break me out and it creates an amazing base for mineral makeup - which I use during the day. The finish is a matte powder finish and looks beautiful. The dispensation of the product is aggravating because its a bit messy but I still think its great.

I love this product. I tend to abuse my skin a lot because of all the acne products I use that leave my skin looking tired and parched. I use 5 drops of the repair serum over my face and neck and then layer garnier's moisture rescue gel over it. In the morning my face looks smoother and more plump. It also has helped fade some of my dark spots caused by acne. I wouldn't recommend using it every night because i do think it could cause clogged pores with prolonged use. However, I am very prone to breakouts and this has not broken me out.

The finish is nice with this but it does nothing for my skin and there are only three colors and the medium (nude) didn't match me very well. Will return.

Caveat**** This is an HG for my WATERLINE. For some reason this works beautifully in my waterline and stays put all night long - its actually been a little difficult to take off. However, I will say that it smears when I use it on the top of my but since I love this shade, it hasn't bothered me. I've used this as an eyeshadow and it also works amazing.

I absolutely loved this product the first two times I used it...and then the marker dried up...WOMP The concept was great for those who love the precision of a liquid liner but don't have the steady hands for the teensy tiny applicators or the patience for gel liners. So sad.
I've been using this for about 2 weeks and I have noticed that my lashes are falling out less and my lashes do look a bit thicker (although that may be just in my head). I started out using it 2x a day but I don't like the way it primes my lashes for mascara (it leaves them crispy...) so I'm only using it at night before bed. I wish the brush was more of a comb with tip because the flat brush is annoying. Will update if anything miraculous or horrible happens.

I really like this so far. I've been trying to wean myself off of ProActiv because I don't think scrubbing my face 2x a day is good for my skin so I'm currently using this every other night and massaging it into my skin for about a min and then rinsing it off. I love the smoothness it gives my face but I have found it drying so I follow it up with Olay hydrating cream before I go to bed. I'll update if anything changes but for now it seems like my HG acne cleanser.
I absolutely love this bronzer. It stays matte and has great staying power. I use this with a stipple/skunk brush and its great for a healthy glow and contouring.
I'll start off by saying that I have oily acne prone skin and deep purple undereye circles around my eyes which is my biggest concern regarding my face. I can leave the house without anything on except undereye concealer. That being said I have tried the spectrum of concealers and this one has functioned the best although it took me some time to figure out the best way to apply it. I tried with a flat concealer brush and my fingers and it ended up being a greasy thick mess. I now apply the corrector (in Peach) with a Sephora airbrush concealer brush and it goes on beautifully without settling into the lines under my eyes and then I set it with Laura Mercier translucent powder (although I wish I could find something with some color to it to give more brightness). *Tip for concealers - use something like a MAC 224 brush or the Sephora airbrush concealer to apply undereye concealer because it blends it really well I only use the corrector because adding the creamy concealer on top is too heavy. Btw I have used Benefit erase paste with Stay Put, Make Up Forever waterproof concealer, Smashbox hd concealer, and Laura Mercier underye concealer. Also (sorry I know this is long) I don't recommend this for concealing blemishes if you have oily acne prone skin because it causes me to break out
