I didn't rate this "worst" since it just didn't work for *me*--it might work for someone else. I'm formerly v. oily & am now a little dry and dehydrated, so I thought that this was great when I first used it (got a sample from Sephora). I did feel the heaviness, but to me my skin just felt protected. I was considering buying it, but after waking on the second night …Read more

ABSOLUTELY agree with the below review--ignorant people are buying this great sunscreen without bothering to educate themselves on the difference between this and potentially harmful, irritating chemical formulas, and are consequently blaming the product when the problem is their own lack of research, which is totally unfair. As has been mentioned, this is a PHYSICAL block, zinc and titanium …Read more

I rarely wear eye makeup, but this mascara made me want to do my eyes every day! I'm another Allure panelist, and due to my infrequency with mascara, I put off trying it, but when I did, I *loved* it. Others have already sufficiently described the rather unique brush, and I loved the smooth, totally clump-free application it afforded (the instructions helped, too). I also found that the …Read more

I actually like these (I have the Plumberry quad). They do just what I want them to--brighten my eyes with a little sheer color. As someone who rarely wears eye makeup, I want nice, natural results with very little effort, and this line delivers. The colors in this quad are very flattering to my green/hazel eyes, and they're sheer enough that I can even take the lightest shade & run it …Read more

I for one LOVE this product. It's my first day with it, but WOW--it *really* jacked up my natural waves and made my hair so beautifully soft, which is amazing since I have very coarse, thick hair. *No* other styler I've tried so far has done this. I used 3 pumps of the product, and I always let my hair air dry, and I'll admit there was a little frizziness on the surface of my …Read more

Jun/09/2008

I love this stuff. I apply the balm & exfoliator together so that the exfoliated skin is protected while I "sand" my lips! Yes, it's hard to apply the balm by itself (which I don't do) w/o getting sugar on your lips, but it's a small price to pay for the convenience & tidiness (not to mention sweetness!) of this product. I'm not one to enjoy using my …Read more

Been using a sample bottle for a couple of weeks now, and I'm def. going to spring for the full-size.

After having a baby, my skin did a 180 and became much drier and more sensitive (I'm formerly v. oily), and although the Philosophy Purity cleanser I was using did a nice job of cleaning every pore, it just sucked my face dry, and no matter how much lotion I put on after, my …

May/29/2007

I was very interested in this color, and was excited to finally find a Blushberry Shine that wasn't "tested" by some jerk! (they're not safety sealed) The pros are that it's a *beautiful* sheer berry that can be built to a glossy deep mauve (very pretty on NC15, dark-haired me), it has a lovely light--albeit slightly greasy--feel, and nice packaging--a sturdy metallic …Read more

A nice blush... The color looks great on my NC15, pale olive face and I like the soft feel of the product. My only gripe is that I have to put so much of it on to build it to the intensity I want, so I end up using a great deal of the cream. I guess I didn't expect it to be so sheer, but I seem to be the only one here with this problem! That said, I would buy it again just for the …Read more

What a journey! After a great many sub-par concealers over the years, high- and low-end, that failed to erase my inherited dark circles, I was prepared to give LM concealer a second chance today, but the MA that put it on me used a shade (#3) that was entirely too dark for cool-toned NC15 me, insisting that it was the best shade, and it ended up actually making me look *older.* Not a good look. …Read more
