I have went through many mascaras and this is one of my everyday staples. I have long lashes normally but they are light so I picked this up in the black and it's perfect for my everday look. It makes my lashes noticable without looking like I was going out. It comes off easy without too much rubbing. If you are looking for a daytime mascara this is perfect.

I have been seeing that this is going to be d/c. Hopefully not in the USA. I do not like their new smoothion powder foundation. I absolutely LOVE this powder foundation. This is one of the only products I have repurchased two times. I use this whenever I want something quick, touchups or if I want extra coverage over my foundation. It goes on so smoothly and doesn't ever look chalky …Read more

I love the coverage of this foundation and that is all. I found that it got shiny fairly quickly and I am not oily. The colors of the smoothing run about a shade darker than the powdery foundation. The coverage is medium. The formulation itself is very smooth when put on but I do agree with the previous review that it is a bit difficult to blend. Overall I would not buy this foundation again …Read more

For reference, I am one of the palest people on the planet. I am lighter than NC15 with acne prone, combination skin. I chose to get the Intensity 1 which is the lightest shade they offer. I normally wear Shell in the regular double wear. The LIGHT formula does have the same staying power as the original and has medium coverage. However, the color selection for pale people is not as good as …Read more

For reference I am very fair (NC10-15), combo-dehydrated skin. I got Ivory 010 (this color is more NC15-20). I wish they would make one shade lighter. I really liked the feel, look and the lasting power of this foundation, however, the color a little bit too dark on my skin. I am not sure how good it will control the oilies.

I have always wanted to try a mousse foundation. I kept seeing these commercials and finally decided to try it out. Wrong....the first day I wore this the color match was okay but my dry spots OMG!!!! So the second day I moisturized more than usual, walked out of my house and wow...dry spots. Like previous reviews say, it is very hard to blend. I find that you can never really get it …Read more

I have been looking for a mascara to wear every day with contacts. This is the only mascara I have found so far that does not flake off into my eyes. This is a very basic mascara (no volumizing, lengthening, etc.). But I am in love. This is my HG for every day wear!!

I disagree with anyone who says this product takes off their waterproof mascara. Every time I used this remover it would always leave traces of mascara. It did effectively remove all my e/l and e/s. Would not recommend this to anyone. Still on the hunt for an HG.
