If I had to name ONE product that I thought was most beneficial to my skin, this would be it (for acne and wrinkles/elasticity/aging/texture, etc.). If I use it under my eyes, I can see a dramatic improvement in the wrinkles/tightness, and it makes my skin look SO MUCH BETTER, in every way. Unfortunately, despite the miracle it works under my eyes, I am going to stop using it so close to my …Read more

I am tempted to deduct one lippie for lack of color selection. I would love to see it in grey or blue. Other than that, this is a great product. I have relied on this for years, as my "go to" natural mascara.

The wand is pretty easy to work with, although I would also love if they would carry a version with a super thin mascara wand. Of course, that really goes for ALL …

I like this, but cannot use it on my chin or it breaks me out. I suspect it has something to do with triggering hormonal acne, so I skip my chin and use it everywhere else. I also don't think it is my imagination bc every single breakout has corresponded with me using this on my chin. Almost like I say, "well, I have not broken out in awhile, I guess I will try TNS..." and, bam, I …Read more

This is for the "BLONDE" color. I have white blonde brows, yet I detest any sort of obvious brow makeup. To solve this dilemma, I dye my brows with Just for Men (Dark Blonde); however, I still need to even them out with some makeup, especially when I have not dyed them for awhile. I also have a small scar through one brow, so my brows need to be thickened in that area, to cover the …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Demodex Natural Facial Cleanser/Wash

This cleanser is pretty special. All adults have (invisible) Demodex mites on their face. In some people, it causes issues (redness, irritation, acne, blepharitis, etc.).

I have rosacea, without the acne (Type I-redness only). Demodex mites are implicated in rosacea, although it is unclear whether they are responsible for Type I (redness only). The theory is that the mites die on …

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow - All Colors

This is also great as an eyeliner, so I have a review under "eyeliner," as well. In short, this product is amazing (as are all MUFE Aqua products). I love the light grey I-12 as both a liner and shadow, and I cannot wait to try out other colors. I own most of the cool shades and they may be slightly too dark as shadow for me (other than the I-12 light grey), but they are great as liner …Read more

I am putting this review under "eyeliner," despite the fact that this is often referred to as an "eye shadow." The Aqua XL is AMAZING, and I LOVE THIS COLOR. I am a "Light Summer" MAC NW10. This color is perfect as an all over eyeliner (using a thin liner brush), and it looks surprisingly natural, despite the sheen (which luckily is not "frosty"). It stays …Read more

Brows - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua Brow Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector - Brown/Black

Listen carefully: this brow color is perfect for almost EVERYONE, even those who would normally avoid it as being too dark. The only people I would discourage from getting this color would be the gals who are: 1) very blonde AND 2) have to draw on their brows. In that case, it may be too dark for you. To all other blondes (with sufficient brow hair) and brunettes (and redheads) this is for you …Read more

This lash primer is absolutely a miracle product, and I’m not sure what I’ll do if they discontinue it. I used to wear it as a super natural black mascara but then realized black does nothing for my “light summer” fair coloring, so I switched to navy mascara. However, I missed this product’s ability to get the roots of my blonde lashes, so I tried actually using it for its intended purpose (!) …Read more

Sunscreen - EltaMD - UV Clear SPF 46

Use it every day. I used to break out with any sunscreen, and this is the first one I can use daily, with no problems. All the best docs recommend it, so I have to assume that science backs up its efficacy. Teensy bit tacky, at first, but quickly dries to a lovely finish. Never pills. I have it on auto re-order. Great stuff.
