I've been using Paula's Choice products on and off for several years. The products are good (3 stars) to excellent (4 stars) in terms of how they feel and how my skin responds to them.

There are several other products out there that I've tried that are also good to excellent in terms of how they feel and how my skin responds. Millions of other women must agree since …

Such a beautiful scent, unfortunately, it doesn't last. I sprayed it on at the store at 7:00 pm and by 8:30 pm could no longer smell it. There's no point in buying it as just doesn't last.

In summary, teeth are maybe one shade whiter, very painful so had to take a 2 day break after strip number 4, wearing for 2 hours in a row is miserable.

I wouldn't purchase again because of the high price and the insignificant amount of whitening.

The best time to wear these is 2 hours before bed because you cannot go out in public in them as you can't talk …

Eye Shadow - Dior - 5 couleurs lift

The package is gorgeous with a magnifying mirror that is wonderful for those who wear glasses. It's also convenient to have shadow, base and brow & liner all in one compact. But that's all that's good about this overpriced Dior eye compact. The shadows are pretty but have no staying power. The brow/eye liner smudges and doesn't last the day never mind the night. And …Read more

I applied a sample from Sephora last night and immediately my skin felt burned and went red; my skin is still feeling the burn and it's almost 24 hours later. It has to be the high amount of alcohol because that's the only thing that causes my skin to turn red and burn.

Alcohol is used in cosmetics to help penetration of the product and to preserve the product. Bottom line …

Best brushes ever!

They pick up just the right amount of colour, blend color beautifully and feel amazing on the skin. The tin container is wonderful for travel.

I loved my eye shadow brushes so much that I just ditched my powder brush and replaced it with the Teddy Bear brush. Love, love, love!

The rep at the Clinique counter told me that the formula is new (not sure how new) but the shadows supposedly have more pigment and therefore last longer. This is certainly true for me. The shadow stays put all day and night until I take it off.

The Pink Chocolate is very natural so it's perfect for day but can be taken into the night by applying more of the darker brown. …

If you find this product to be too sticky, then you are probably using way too much. Remember, it's a gloss so GLOSS OVER your lips, don't lather it on like vaseline on a baby's bottom!


Lasts for hours (until you eat or drink) and as far as I'm concerned, it has no taste.

Black Honey is bronze with a light shimmer; I don't know how people see red in it or chunks of glitter as one said. Maybe it's their skintone (I'm fair, dark blonde).


Here's a tip: Dip your brush in the pot, then swirl the brush on the LID OF THE POT to get rid of the excess and evenly saturate the brush and then apply a light line to your lid. Repeat for …

This is the best concealer that I've ever used ... I hate those thick, creamy concoctions that cake and settle in lines and wrinkles ... this one doesn't. You also need to buy the recommended brush, so it gets pricey, however, it's worth every penny. Every little mark on our face will magically disappear!!
