My HG makeup remover as part of a double cleanse.

As much as I hated the cleansing lotion, I love the balm. It takes off everything, including mascara (though some people reported stinging; I didn't) and the gooiest, sparkliest lip gloss and lipstick. It doesn't break me out, takes off every trace of makeup AND sunscreen as well as plain old fashioned dirt. Rinses off very …

It's terrible.
I had a sample of the cleansing balm and liked it very much to use as the first part of a double cleanse. I thought I'd try the cream because the balm is so rich I have to double cleanse thinking this would be a good option when I just wanted the makeup off but a bit of lotion would act as a moisturizer on those nights when a bit of moisture was more important than a …

This is maybe the nicest eyeshadow I've ever used.
to get it off my chest, the only things I don't like are the price (29 US) and the size. It's an OK value for the size, sure, but I don't really like the oversize package. As for downsides...dassit!

I tried BigO (matte neutral light brown) and Daddi-O (matte warm milk chocolate brown) and I love everything …

I'm not really a primer person, but this does as much as I expect from a primer.

Nice glow without being greasy, adds the slightest warm tint, makes foundation application smoother, controls oil (but not mattifying), and doesn't cause breakouts.
This is a new relationship, we'll see how long this lasts, though

I have olive to neutral medium skin tone (MAC NW 20) slightly oily skin with some hyperpigmentation and acne scarring and large pores. In general, primers are not my thing, but I have found a few that do make a positive difference. This is not one of them.

The lilac tones and pearlescent glow give my face a mask-like tone and texture. It's like it's reflective but also …

Bought this on a buy two get one sale at Ulta. The scent is mostly okay, but has a strange chemical smell underneath it. it seems to go away as the product warms. I bought it for the scent, though, because I wanted something soft and delicate for evenings or when I was planning to wear other, stronger scents.
It's an OK moisturizer. It doesn't absorb not moisturize as well as other …

I feel like this is really a misunderstood product. I have skin that is only mildly oily (though it used to be very oily) and breakout prone. My skin gets dehydrated due to acne control products and simply not ingesting enough water. Getting enough moisture in my skin without greasiness is the biggest problem I have. This mask does the trick like nothing else. I end up with skin that is plumper …Read more

I'm so torn on this product. The things I love are equally matched by the things I hate about it.
Love: The shades. I can wear most of them, and they have enough pigment that even on my highly pigmented lips, I can wear most of them.

* Uh-huh Honey - I fell in love with this and it was nothing I was looking for. It's a bronzed chocolate with a silver glitter that …

I have acne prone skin that is a bit oily (used to be VERY oily when I was younger) and gets dry sometimes due to running outside, swimming in pools, and gets a fair amount of exfoliating. I am also prone to clogged pores.

I wear a lot of makeup. I'm a total cakeface who usually wears full coverage, long lasting foundation, powder, and all the extra stuff I can. When I'm not …

I have two other Super Shock shadows, and really like them. They are sort of a powder cream formula. When you dip into it, it feels like a cool cream but dries to a powder. These are best applied with a finger.

The problem with this one it that it doesn't DO anything. In the pot, it looks like a beautiful champagne with a light teal color shift, which it what I was expecting. When …
