So reviews have been meh, but mostly from those younger than 40, and even more so under the age of 30. I LOVE this stuff. I think this stuff is amazing. The price stinks, however. It plumps and hydrated and I could see visible results (especially my crows feet and upper cheek area) in a week!! Nothing has worked as amazingly for me as this stuff. I originally got a sample in a subscription …Read more

Hands down my favorite moisturizer I have ever used. I use retinols and BHA/AHAs on the regular. If I do a lactic peel, this is just the “ahhhhh” my skin is looking for. I use this every night, even in the summer. The “pump” is easy enough to control the amount I want. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I don’t use it often during the day unless I have some flaking or peeling and it …Read more

I have the MR palette and a quad of singles from ABH. I think she puts out some quality shadows that are both pigmented and easy to blend. I do not like this palette, but it is mostly because of the shades in the palette. Both my daughter and I are light/neutral complexions with green/hazel eyes with dark brown hair and we both felt the same about this palette- meh. I realize makeup is …Read more

I feel like I am in the minority here, but I honestly do not care for this product whatsoever. I have an array of foundations I use for different occasions and events. I thought this might be a good "one and done" for me on days I want some CC but not the fuss of full on makeup. The texture on me was bleh. The feel was meh. For the price, I believe you are much better off …Read more

It took me a while to purchase this palette as I had the Naked 2 basics, Tarte Matte, and the Viseart matte palette. All of the aforementioned are fine, but I had dislikes about each of them. However this one is something special!

The warm quad in this palette isn’t TOO warm, the neutral is neutral, and the cool isn’t TOO cool. Viseart has too many warm colors for my liking. Naked …

When I lived in a northern climate, I used to use
Hourglass no 28. Since I moved to South, I found the primer too heavy. I purchased the travel size of the mineral veil and I fell in love with it. It smoothes the things I want smoother and foundation slips over it like butter. I was so impressed that I purchased the full size! Beautiful primer!

There is a slight white cast when …

I am 47 years old. I have always taken good care of my skin, and I do get compliments often. I do use a retinol and a strong glycolic on the regular. I've been on the hunt for a simple, hydrating cream to combat periods of dryness. This product is excellent imo.

A little goes a long way, and it leaves my skin feeling very supple. I do find it a very rich cream and as such would …

This is my initial review. I will do a follow up at 3 months or before, depending on results. Some.say this formula dies out after a short time, but I have also read they improved the tube to correct the problem.

I enjoy this mascara. It gives a very fluttery, full look to my lashes. The pigment is very black. I applied at 4:30 am and it wore well for a solid 13-hours and it did …

I have pretty much given up on powder eyeshadows. I am nearing 50 and I have some seriously hooded eyes. I know how to use powder eyeshadows to "carve" out a crease, but it takes time to do it correctly.

I started trying several types of pencil eyeshadows, and this line is a keeper. The product sets fast, so you have to work quickly. Once it sets it stays, which is a …
