I am reviewing the regular (nonwaterproof) version. I love this mascara! I had been using the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, but it flaked really badly on me. This one has not flaked or smudged, adds volume and length as promised, lasts all day, and removes easily with micellar water. I don't mind the packaging, but I see why others say it is a bit bulky. The price point can't be …Read more

See my picture above for the oxidation... upper swatch is freshly applied, lower swatch is from a few minutes earlier. That is shade 705, Ivory for reference. The formula seems nice, hydrating, full coverage, and the initial finish is very natural. If there were a lighter shade I would try again to account for the oxidation, but unfortunately this was a deal breaker for me. I had hoped to test …Read more

I might consider wearing this for special occasions/short periods of time... but for every day it is a no go for me. I have very dry skin, and heard this would be a good option for me. I love the packaging; beautiful frosted glass and a pump. I also love that a little bit goes a long way. You can pretty much take a passing glance at the bottle and have medium to full coverage.

The …

I really wanted to like this... the new shade range is impressive, and my shade (fair beige) was a wonderful match for my cool toned pale skin. The initial finish was beautiful and natural; semi dewy, but not shiny; and it did not oxidize at all. I did not find that it dried me out, which is awesome (very dry skin here). However, I found that after about 5 hours of wear, it just looked... bad. I …Read more

I have this in Sangria, Sass, VIP and Life. My favorites are Sass (the perfect warm pink) and VIP (a dark nude). It smells heavenly, like vanilla frosting. I apply the lipstick first, and then the gloss on top. That is how I prefer to wear lipstick anyway (with a little shine), which usually means I have to carry two products. The colors are all so rich and flattering; the color is very long …Read more

I have this lipstick in the colors blush petal (springy tulip pink) and rose petal (soft mauve nude with microglitter). I was pleasantly surprised by the microglitter (is that what it's called?) in the rose petal. It made lips look slightly shiny without the weight of a gloss. Blush petal does not have microglitter, and has a creamier finish. These do not dry out my lips, feel great …Read more

This foundation is some kind of witchcraft. I have super dry super pale skin... this foundation matches my shade (205 is lighter in this line than in their others), it manages to not aggravate my dry skin or cling to my numerous dry patches, yet magically still looks somewhat matte, which helps to hide texture issues (I am at an age where I have both lines and pimples to conceal) (it's loads …Read more
