Great pencil! Lasts, not too dry, not too creamy, love the color (midnight brown), looks natural. Just cut off the PATHETIC comb - seriously Sephora, save yourself the 50 cents production and just stop putting it on there. MUCH better than NYX pencil which DOES NOT last on me (and I have dry skin!) and doesn't have great color match for me.

I got a new do. Short choppy layers. Cut is AMAZING! I have baby fine super straight hair. It's thick in back and thinner on top.

I use this product as last step after my hair is styled I run this through my hair and it just comes to life. Makes layers look dynamic and adds volume and hold.

My first LP product I love it!!! Also, it says on packaging not to use …

I've had this for 2 months. I hated it at first. It took me a while to get the hang of this and figure out how it looks best for me. Now i love it! What do I love... it LASTS ALL DAY, looks natural, covers extremely well, so creaseless, and things look smoother. I am 40, dry skin, N 20 - use shade Light Neutral. I may need to go lighter in winter.

The biggest negative is …

I didn't mean to buy this. But now I will never be without it!!! I bought the KA On the Go at Sephora which is a small Sculpting Powder and a small Celestial powder in one travel compact. I was interested in the sculpting powder. I already had TheBalm's Mary Loumanizer and love it. I didn't think I needed another h/l. I was WRONG! The two powders are worlds apart. Mary Lou …Read more

I'm carrying a few extra pounds and I find it amazing what a little simple cheek contour can do do my face. TheBalm Bahama Mama has been my HG contour for years now. I despise warm contour. I want something shadowy and ashy.

KA beats Bahama Mama in terms of ashy and longevity. I do find KA has to be built up but I guess that's a good thing for contouring so you won't …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - CSI Vitamin C + 12% Youth Serum

May/21/2017

This serum came highly recommended from skin care board (thanks ladies - xoxox!) It's a great Vitamin C serum for sensitive/acne/reactive folks as it has only 2 ingredients instead of a laundry list of ingredients. I use it in AM in effort to boost SPF protection. It's in an oil but it isn't too greasy and seems to sink in fairly quickly. I have dry skin. For the price you …Read more

I have dry skin - never get acne. Different skin type? YMMV

When this product came out, I yawned. Oh another moisturizer. Having dry skin, I have a million moisturizers in my "arsenal". I need another one like I need a hole in the head. But the reviews and buzz around this product kept getting my attention. I almost pulled the trigger on this once, but it said it was …

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet Cream

HG product! I don't use that term lightly. Lifelong dry skin. My hands and feet are particularly bad This cream is unlike anything I've tried. The texture is kind of like a dry wax. I don't know how else to describe it. It actually doesn't feel that moisturizing when you first put it on. But I wake-up the next day with softer healthier looking skin. I like that it …Read more

***Cries*** I have long, dark, full lashes. EXCEPT they are straight. I've tried lots of different mascaras. I finally shelled out the $$ for this curler since it seems to have cult like HG status. It was pure meh! I think my tweezerman curler does better than this. I'm going to return mine. It is completely not worth the cost.

FYI, I bought mine from shu site. It …
