I have extremely dry and acne prone skin. I have hyper pigmentation that I am extremely self-conscious of and I literally tried almost every foundation brand you can think of. I tried drug store to high end, and I saw the great reviews online and decided to go in and try it. I use a green tinted primer before I apply this and this foundation covers EVERY acne scar I have. I use a tiny bit of it and apply it with a flat top brush. I do not use a setting powder, just a finishing spray and it lasts me all day. I go to school and I work and before I would be so embarrassed to see how my foundation would fade away when I would come home. Now I don't even think about it. Yes it is a heavy coverage, but a lot isn't needed. My skin does not feel as if I have a full coverage foundation on and it matches my skin tone so I do not have worries about my skin not looking natural. It's a bit pricey cost a little over $30, but it's worth it. One bottle for me last's me 6 months and I'm on my THIRD bottle! This is my holy grail. I am in the process of trying to get rid of my acne scars, but even after it's gone I would still use this. If you have a lot of acne scars, invest in a good green tinted primer (I use makeup forever) you won't need concealer (I hate them they never work for me, I have too many scars). If you have dry skin, you won't need a blotting powder with this. This foundation does transfer, so just be a little cautious when touching your face. Overall, great product! I even got my mother to use this product.
I was really hoping that my serach for a good eyeliner would end when I bought this, but it didn't. I was willing to pay the price for it because I thought it'd work but it's horrible. It didn't last on my waterline at all. It is smooth and is a dark black, but it would go down my lash line and into the crease of my eyes. I returned it the next day.

This eyeliner is not worth purchasing. I recieved the duo eyliner when I bought the NAKED palette. I was excited to use it and try it out but it doesn't last at all. It does glide on very smoothly, but it doesn't last. I would end up looking like a racoon because it would tranfser down my lash line. I wouldn't recommend purchasing it. It's not worth it.
A little goes a long way with this product. I bought this during my 2nd month on the regime. I use this at night and mix it with my moistruizer. Also, I use this to remove my makeup when I run out of my makeup wipes. It really helps add more moisture to my skin! If you have dry and sensitve skin, I recommend getting this as soon as you begin the regime. I wish I had bought it when I placed my first order. But this works great! It never has irritated my skin.
I began using this around my 2nd month on the regime. I was desperate to use anything that would help with the driness and exfoliate my skin. This has helped out my skin SO much. I only use it at night right after my BP and I can see a difference in my skin. I did test it out on my jawline before using this on my face to see how my skin reacted. I have heard some people using this as their night time moistruizer but I can't do that, I still have to moistruize even after using this. At times, it does cause a burning sensation but it's mild and lasts a couple seconds. I just apply a pea size of this. This really helped even out my skin.
This BP beat out every single BP my doctor prescribed me on. Make sure in the beginning to start off with a small amount and build your way up. It will make your skin dry in the beginning, but this is what will make the acne go away. It took me 3 months to finally have clear skin and I know this had a lot to do with it. Also, make sure to use SPF! But I will never ever live without this product, it got rid of the acne that I've been trying to get rid of for 7 years!
This is the best cleanser I have ever used. I have tried EVERYTHING you can think of (proactiv, murad, neutrogena, clearasil, clean and clear, EVERYTHING) and I've even been on presciptions. This one is gentle and even though the regime says to clense for only 10, it really gets the job done. It took 3 months for my skin to stop breaking out, and I only break out if I sleep without washing my face. My skin is the clearest it's ever been. Don't expect your skin to be clear in a couple weeks, the regime takes time. Just stay dedicated and committed and you will be SO happy!
This mostriuzer is a really good one. Although, in the beginning of the Acne regime you will feel as if it isn't. It took 3 months before the driness wasn't so bad, but I remember feeling as if this moistruizer wasn't enough. Don't get discouraged by the driness in the beginning of the regime, we ALL have to go through it. To help with it though I bought Aveeno's SPF moistruizer and would apply that after the Treatment and right after I would apply this. I would also mix this with the jojoba oil at night. When my driness was at its worst I used 6 pumps instead of 3.
