I originally bought this to use on my face through the winter, after reading numerous reviews of people using it and loving it as a face cream. But honestly, I hated it for that. It leaves way too much of a matte finish, it even dries down to FEEL a bit drying. I just wanted a thick uncomplicated cream to soothe my dry winter skin, but this didn't cut it. So I switched to Cetaphil face and …Read more

Ugh! So bad! To describe this foundation stick in one word: GRITTY. And that's enough for me to not want to use it. It literally feels/looks like it has sand in the formula. SAND. It makes for an unpleasant application. Scratchy as hell, almost feels like you're applying an exfoliating scrub, made me worried it was actually damaging my skin. Takes some effort to blend, clings to dry …Read more

This is fine, but I definitely don't think it's worth the price. Granted, I haven't tried using it as a "primer" because that seems ridiculous to me. How is water in spray form supposed to prime your skin? Maybe if it was at least hydrating for dry girls, or oil absorbing for oily girls, or magically filled in your pores for the large pore ladies....
But this is …

Yaaaaaaas! Yes. I love this highlighter. I've been using it pretty nearly every single day since last fall. I haven't wanted to use any of my other highlighters since I bought this. I find it quite similar to the Essence Pure Nude highlighter, but a bit lighter, more fair skin friendly. It's not a bam in your face wet look highlighter, more of a subtle sheen. My makeup doesn't …Read more

This is my all time favourite make up item that Ive ever bought in my entire life. And thats saying a lot because I buy makeup like it's a legitimate addiction.
I love this!!! To be honest I only bought this because of its cult status. I was in Sephora with a list of other people's HG's that I just had to try. It was on my makeup bucket list so to speak...but I wasn't even …

This blush confuses me. The color in the pan is so shockingly bright, I was almost afraid to use it. However...on my cheeks it almost doesn't show up, it wears more like a sparkly highlighter. I have fair skin, and I own dozens upon dozens of blushes, mostly drugstore, and I almost never have a problem with my blush being pigmented enough. For example, I own Milani Luminoso which people …Read more

I can't even remember what exactly made this mascara so horrible...but I remember it being so frustrating and terrible that I threw it out after trying it about 2-3 times, and yelling "Ugh! This is trash!"
I think it was the wand I didn't like. It just created an ugly, messy lash look that made me look crazy. I believe the formula itself was a bit...sticky???

Made me way way way too shiny and oily, and melts right off my face just leaving a sticky shiny mess behind with no hint of coverage. I'll try it again in the winter when my skin is dry and there's no hot sun to cause me to sweat my face off...but I kinda sorta was hoping to use this as a summer time product for just a hint of tint under powder. It did not hold up whatsoever and felt …Read more

I LOVE this blush. It's a kind of subtle peachy shade with a slight golden sheen that allows me to skip highlighter. Yes it has a golden overspray that you may want to remove before using, but even after that it gives a peachy golden glow. Quality on par with all the other Benefit blushes, which I have almost all of...and when I found out about this new addition I RAN out to pick this baby …Read more
