This is a fantastic eye liner. Please, all you ladies who have been tortured with finding smudge-proof liners, please - for the love of God, go out and get this liner! FYI: MAC Fluidline SUCKS for me. It smudges on me and is a huge, royal pain in the ass to remove. The only thing I don't like about this eyeliner is that it takes several tries for the liner to "come out". Ie. I'll be there lining my eyes and none of that ink comes out so I'll press it on the back of my hand a little more for new ink to come out.
Hello, Holy Grail mascara! I'm so glad I found you on Makeupalley! Holds curl, doesn't smudge (which is HUGE for me as all "supposedly non-smudgeable mascaras smudge on me), looks very nice - really one by one/angelic-looking. Easy to remove actually with a bit of eye makeup remover and cotton pads. Big thumbs up from me!!!
I hate to be the downer here but this sunscreen didn't protect me from burns! i've darkened at least a good 4 or 5 shades since summer began and I started using this sunscreen on my body. I like the consistency: as others have said, it first applies like oil, then dries down to a matte finish. However, what's the point of putting it on if it doesn't protect my skin well enough? On to the next brand/product!
I, too, bought this product because it received a "Paula's Pick". The after-application feel is too greasy for me to deal with on a daily basis so I end up NOT using this sunscreen, which defeats the whole purpose of buying an "excellent" sunscreen.
I believe this will be my 3rd bottle now. This stuff is amazing for when I have clogged pores and little bumps on my face. I love everything about it - savior for my skin.
Awh Hell Nawh. This product leaves white marks on my face. It's so thick and gloopy and so hard to spread on my face. I literally turn 2 shades whiter because of this sunscreen. I look very pale and sickly. Ick. There's better options out there, girls! Do your research on MUA before you buy~! (I wish I had done this before buying... Now I'm stuck with this giant, honking piece of crap....) The only good thing is that unlike Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Dry Touch line, this does not sting my eyes.
I love how easy this brush makes putting on my liquid foundation so quickly and easily. I used it for the first time today and I was so amazed that I had to write a review for it. The brush is so dense that it is able to "sponge" the foundation and blend it onto your face. I used the stippling method, or so I think I did...
I liked this mascara. Even though it was not a waterproof mascara, it still held a curl although only slightly after an 8-hour day. I feel with enough coats, your lashes could look very voluminous, although I never do that because I don't want my mascara to smudge on me. Pros: cute packaging, voluminous, can hold curl, non-waterproof (hence, not as drying for lashes) smudges slightly as compared to other mascaras (ahem* ALL COVER GIRL MASCARAS) Cons: non-waterproof smudges a little

This shade is too nude for my liking. I like to put on lip gloss and go, instead of having to dab on blush because I look ill. However, it looks fantastic on my other friend that has a gorgeous, medium, olive complexion. (I couldn't get over how good it looked on her either. It just totally complemented her face and she didn't even have to put on makeup) So, I guess my advice is to try it on in stores and see how you feel about the shade. Aside from the color, this little gem excels in all other categories! It's moisturizing, sunscreen-infused (SPF15), and has great packaging.

The only gripes I have with this product is the color. I personally do not like the shade, however, if you find sheer, tomato red to your liking, then go for it because shade aside, this product has the potential to compete with all those other "high-end = good quality" lip glosses. You may want to know that this contains SUNSCREEN! SPF15 - perfect for someone who hates putting on yucky tasting sunblock on the lips.

This product has an overpowering smell of artificial PINEAPPLE. Give me a break, please, I do not want to smell a disgustingly fake fruity smell in the shower. It would be better if the smell were toned down - but this is almost unbearable as I don't use the accompanying shampoo, therefore, it clashes with the other shampoo smell. The product by itself is okay, perhaps I'm just too spoiled by the Aussie 3-Minute Miracle or just too aversed with the smell.
Meh, I do not get what all the hype is about. It looks like I punched myself and gave myself a black eye. Yes, that is roughly the color of this shade: a bruise-like color. The texture, to me, is chalky and not blendable - although it may be that my friend abused it too much trying to get it to work for her before giving up and giving the shade to me. Maybe it will work better for a smoky eye effect - deposited close to the lash line to get that seductive, alluring look.

Wow, out of all the shades in the Super Lustrous Lipgloss line, I think this one is my favorite because it literally is so pretty, a dark enough color that I can wear without having to put on any blush (as contrasted by Pink Pursuit, which I do need to put on a bit of blush for), and I just look so classy and polished! This lipgloss is high-end quality, packaging, INCLUDES SUNSCREEN, at a cheap, drugstore price. It's even better if you can get it on sale!
I have the one with the white, wooden handle and yellowy-orange synthetic brush. It doesn't hold up very well after washings. For the price, I believe I can find a better brush than this.
WOWZA. This IS a miracle. I have thick, normal Asian hair that has a bit of a wave in it (natural wave). This Makes my hair SO SOFT and moisturized. I'm currently living in an area where it's very dry and my hair is always static-y from taking off clothes. I use this on and off - on the days when I feel I need extra moisture. *This might be a little too much for people with greasy hair.* But honestly, for the price and the product you get in the pretty purple bottle? Why not give it a shot! Amazing!
