This is the best foundation I have ever used. It is everything you could ever want. There's nothing more to say. It provides a medium coverage with a natural finish. Despite it's name I wouldn't call it sheer or glowy. It just makes your skin look perfect. And it LASTS! I've never had a foundation last this long. Maybe Revlon Colorstay but that's a cakey mess. …Read more

This is a nice way to get your skin very clean, but nothing more. I found just using cleanser on a baby wash cloth to be almost as effective.
It has made my skin more smooth and clear. However I'm not sure if it's worth the price.
If you're debating trying this, try the baby wash cloths. They really work well!

This is AWFUL if you follow the directions. I put a quarter sized amount and diffused and my hair was a giant ball of frizz! However it's a great blowout cream, similar to Fredrick Fakkai Glossing Cream. So for using a flat iron, it's perfect. For ref... 3A/3B curls

This is the best red. Not only is it the perfect shade, but it applies and wears like a dream. All polish should be based off this color! Two coats and it's perfection. Even if you slap it on, it still looks like a million dollars.

It's a cute color, but it did not apply well. After this I'm giving up on Essie. They all apply streaky and require 3 coats. Why do all Essie polishes require three coats? It's driving me crazy.

This color is nothing that unique to require that much work to make it look good.

This is a nice brush. It applies foundation pretty well. However I think it's a bit overrated. I prefer flat top kabuki's because I feel it buffs in the foundation better. My Every Day Minerals is in the lead right now, and it's only $10.00. This is a nice brush, but I can achieve the same results with my fingers or a cheaper brush. It's really not a necessary thing to …Read more

This is a great pink. However it requires 3 coats so I give it a big thumbs down.

I don't have time for three coats. This is the second Essie polish that I purchased this year that requires three coats.

Edit - Okay so it requires four coats. This is going in the trash. I've tried thick coats and thin coats and the only way to get it to look good is 4 thin …
