**I recently read the beauty industry standard for repurchase is less than 30%. **
Ouch! I think for everyone on MUA it is likely less since we love makeup and skincare and all related things. Ive been on this board since I was in the "18-24" category, ha! so I def love my makeup and now skincare.

So the product, got it once with a gift card when it was used on me during a …

This MAC staple has been around a while and I really didn't need another lipstick but bought a mini and i love it.
Its a medium browny/red and it allays my fear of red (special occasion) to an everyday professional look. Like all MAC lipsticks, it is drying.

I use this with angled brush, it goes on nicely with an angled brush, stays on forever even after a shower and shades match well.
Lasts and lasts and lasts...the jar and the product

This does nothing for me. I prefer NYC brand concealer to this. It does not stay on and it appears to be see through. I am really just not a fan of this formula, has no staying power.

I cannot tell if i love this or I'm buying into the hype but i do like this. I like that its not a terrible feeling on my lips and lasts forever. It is not totally dry and has slip, itll literally stay on past shower and into bed and next day. I got the RED, uncensored? The "universal flattering red" and i have medium skin tone. It is NICE dont get me wrong, just not sure its …Read more

I do my own nails all the time and have everything, OPI, ESSIE, Sally Hansen, Jessie, Zoya, and honestly, this has been a real winner. Bought it on a whim because i walked into ulta couldnt find what i wanted and still *wanted to buy something, so got this for less than $2 and wow. Will go back and buy more, it looks like gel nails.

Everyone asks what i am wearing when i wear this. So yeay @ color. Bubble gum bright pink. Girly and feminine.
Cons-Formula is rough. Really gotta work hard to make this look nice. Seems goopy. Its hard to get first layer down right. The second coat makes you realize why its worth it, but very thick formula.

What a luxury! I love this. It truly makes me happy. I cant seem to find it anymore, not sure if its seasonal. They go on sale sometimes for $15, usually they are $25
I am fairly frugal with many things and still grab my Marshalls candles all the time, but really, this is worth it, the scent, packaging and quality-the wax can be used on your body afterwards if you wish.
Highly …

I went to Marshalls ONLY FOR body lotion .Wah wah. We all know cant walk into Marshalls for one item.
I saw this in a package for $50 which is amazing because came with a serum and lotion ad i know this is pricy, usually $70 + for just the cleanser. So point is, id of never tried this full price even though id read the hype for a while. Ive also never tried cleansing balms. I must say my …

I read so much hype about this. I honestly thought this is for very fair caucasian girls based on color i saw online but I am tan and this looks awesome on me. I bought the small one and its still with me, i dont use it daily but itll last forever, just hard to get into if you use a brush to get into the mini. The mini brush it comes with is terrible.
This is a natural flush look, very …
