I'm Asian with light-medium (NC25 perhaps?) skin and warm olive undertones. I bought the shades light medium and medium for $7 each at Walmart. The formula did not work for me, but since this is a new product, I thought it would be useful to discuss the shade selection for people who are interested in trying it out.

To give you a frame of reference, I purchased the glamoflauge …

I gave in to the hype and bought this and have never regretted a purchase more. I don't have sensitive or acne prone skin, but a few days of using this as a facial cleanser gave me cysts in areas that have never, ever broken out before. When used as shampoo, it turned my hair to straw. When used as body wash, I broke out all over my back and chest, also something that has never happened …Read more

I received this product as a sample, and after a few weeks of use this has become HG status. It is a plain, no frills gel cleanser that is free of sulfates, dyes, and fragrances. It does not foam much, doesn't leave a residue, and is the gentlest cleanser I have ever tried.


WHAT TO USE IT FOR:
1) Morning cleanser. Assuming you don't go to bed wearing a lot of …

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Mega Eyes - Wicked [DISCONTINUED]

I am not a big fan of this product. The color payoff is decent, but the shimmer particles are too large, as is the case for many WnW eye shadows. The lasting power is okay. Though it starts to look sludgy after a few hours, I think it has more to do with the fact that this is a dark gray shadow to begin with. Packaging quality is not great, as per usual for WnW products, but I won't complain …Read more

This concoction worked beautifully. I left it on under a shower cap for 30 min, then rinsed most of it out with cold water (don't want to cook the egg) before shampooing and conditioning as usual. After air drying, my hair was silky and tangle free. It retained the silkiness for 2 weeks afterward, despite many more washings.

Just wanted to warn everyone, do *NOT* use brushes found at art or craft stores for makeup! They are NOT cosmetic grade! The glues, dyes, and other chemicals involved in the making of artist paintbrushes are often toxic. Just as you would never use house paint brushes on food, no matter how clean they are, you shouldn't use these on your skin.

I paint (oils mostly, but also …

Aug/06/2009

I must say I was extremely disappointed in the limited color selection of this product. The light-medium was much too pale for me, even though this is my usual shade for foundations. Although the product was great in every other way (creamy, pigmented, easy to apply, etc.), the simple fact that it could not match my skin tone meant I had to return it. If you have very light skin you'll love …Read more

Fragrances - Coty - Vanilla Fields (parfum)

This fragrance seems to epitomize cheap perfume. I've been searching for a nice fresh vanilla scent (that is neither too foody nor musky or floral), and this was a major disappointment. For one, I cannot detect the vanilla notes at all. Instead, it smells like generic drugstore perfume. I certainly have nothing against a good bargain, but I'm steering clear of this one.
