Works on my long unprocessed straight Asian hair. Keeps frizz tempered yet provides nice body so I don't look like a drowning rat. Shampoo and conditioner work nicely paired with Sebatian Potion-9. Wash it at night, sleep on it wet, and in the morning perfectly acceptable results. Never blow dry or flat iron and yet still manageable, workable hair. Will buy again.

When all else fails, give this a try. I burned my skin with Green Cream and sun exposure. I was a scaly mess. Tried everything and only when all hope was lost, did I remember this in the back of the drawer. Rubbed it on in morning, noticeable improvement by evening.

My jar is a little old and the smell is a little antiseptic, but everything this company produces is quality and my …

Thank god, I saw this recommended and picked it up. After years of buying expensive mascara, I found this and this is exactly what I have been searching for.

Keeps the curl, (took a nap and it still looks great) and defines beautifully.

Cover Girl - never stop making this, please.

Unfortunately, this product is outstanding. The price is exorbitant but if you are like me and have to wear KA's SSE, this will make it stick. I used the Chanel white primer and it would slide right off my face so I finally broke down and bought this. I'm glad I did as it really works to cover up an unpleasant scar on my chin.

Will grudgingly shell out the money to buy it …

Ok, I used to think if I kept trying with pencils and lipstick and lipgloss, I'd somehow find the "perfect" red lip for me (med asian - not yellow, not pink- just plain med). I included medieval in a barney's buying spree recently and loved it, but was sad at how it wore away too fast (as a balm, its supposed to). So my objective was to find the "lipstick" version …Read more

Would I buy this again? Hell yes! This is exactly what I've been looking for in terms of color. I use it over Chanel Aqua Rouge Crayon in Rouge for perfect red lips. Unfortunately, it doesn't last as long as I'd like, but as it wears off, the stain left behind is beautiful - quite pleased overall. Now to find the sinner/saint version. (I can tell you right now, it isn't Red …Read more

So far, so good. I have remarkably good skin, but I wanted a little something to help on those days I look tired and sick. - like at the end of a semester.
Color matches beautifully (med. beige for MMM Asian). I am embarrassed to admit it, but I use the quick cover concealer (I know, I know) and together, they have me covered. Long lasting, looks fresh for hours. I was amazed when I …
