It is hard to get the pastel colors in this pallet to show up, without a white eyeshadow base. Even UD primer doesn't work on it's won with this pallet. I finally tried with a white eyeshadow base & could see the pistachio green. The reason I bought the pallet. That's when I saw that I didn't actually like the color. I haven't touched this pallet in a couple of yrs …Read more
I got this to heal my skin, in case I overdo it with TO's direct acids/vitamin C. I have not experienced redness or flaking from using all the exfoliants, so I think it is working. Update: My skin hates this. I wake up to redness, clogged pores. & little pimples on occasion when I use this. I don't think I noticed what it was doing when I used it after direct acids because my skin …Read more
I've been using a couple of days now. There is a mild tingle upon application. I had a pimple that I had left alone, excepting washing & putting some drawing salve on it. It refused to come to a head & went away, leaving a dark mark. I have started using a few different TO products over the past week & a half. The dark mark isn't fading very well, but I have noticed that I …Read more
This highlight pallet introduces two new shades to theBalm's lineup of luminizers; Cindy-Lou & Emma-Lou. Penny-Lou is light, bright gold that suitable for fair skin tones. Finally a wearable gold for my NC 15-20 pale! Emma-Lou is white w/ lilac reflects. Emma-Lou's very frosty/cool toned, I find it suits my neutral-warm peaches n cream complexion the least. It is pretty & will …Read more
I love this. It stays & does look really good with the Mary Lou powder on top. This highlight lasts all day. I want to try the liquid Cindy Lou as well, I think the powder is too pink but the liquid looks perfect.

I used to use this a few yrs back but got out of using it. I think because I switched to the IT Cosmetics makeup cleanser then switched to using my homemade cocoa butter/coconut oil mix. But that can get expensive just to wash off. I saw this at Walmart & picked up a jar. I have about 3 steps in my cleansing routine; I wipe this off with a makeup wipe because I hate gunking up washcloths …Read more
I bought this in summer, which is makeup melt season where I live. The color match & coverage is good for me, I wear F2. This won't change in winter as I don't buy into getting a darker shade for summer when I have bronzer. It is hot+humid where I live in the southern midwest so even setting spray couldn't save it from sliding around in the heat, due to the emollient formula …Read more
I loved this freebie. Went into Ulta for other MR products & I got this bonus. I agree the MR eyeshadows do smell of cheap Halloween type makeup, but they wear beautifully, are pigmented, & very inexpensive. I've paid more for Maybelline/Covergirl shadows that didn't even have 1/2 the pigmentation. I think I'm done buying more expensive brands for eyeshadow, tbh. Back to …Read more
I just snagged this on clearance. $7.80, a bargain I couldn't pass up. I got it in the shade Lighter Than Light. Cons: It does contain talc. They need a lighter shade. This works for me because it's summer, but it may be a tad too dark by January. We'll see.
Pros: Excellent coverage, as much as IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye, also Time Balm doesn't crack or crease …Read more
