Oh my god, my dark circles are gone! No other concealer I've used has covered this much. and unlike other reviewers, it hasn't caked up on me (I apply it with a concealer brush). And it is really cheap too. I'm definitely stocking up on this.

Edit: I just want to add that I tried this on my tattoo out of curiosity, since it is meant for covering tattoos. It worked …

This is a really great concealer brush. I bought nearly all of the studio brushes half off and I'm really glad that I got them. They are worth double or even triple the price. If you are wondering if you should splurge on a high-end brush, trust me, you don't have to! These are great, they are soft, don't shed, and work perfectly. This one is the perfect size and density for my …Read more

This didn't work for me at all. Its too dark for my skin (NW15) and it is not the right consistency for using under the eyes. It could be used as a highlighter on darker skin tones, but its really not worth the effort. I'm sticking with benefit high beam.

I own two of these, one in blossom and one in fairy. The colors look like they would be nice, but there is barely any pigmentation. They are kind of sticky and don't feel that great on my lips. I don't really regret buying it because it was only $1. These aren't bad for that price but don't expect more than a subtle shine with a tiny tiny hint of color. I actually like the …Read more

I bought this even after reading all the bad reviews on makeupalley. I just couldn't resist the temptation to try a mousse foundation. All in all, i'm happy I ignored the reviews and bought it. It has good coverage even when it is applied lightly. Classic Ivory, Light 2 matches my NW15 skin really well. It does look a little thick/cakey like many reviews mentioned. And of course, it is …Read more

I use this as a primer, but I don't actually have oily skin. It doesn't do much for my skin but works perfectly as a foundation primer. When this runs out, I will probably return to the Smashbox primer, but it is still a good primer that I would recommend.

This was my first NYX eyeshadow purchase. The colors are extremely pigmented. I'm very impressed with the color payoff. I tried to put together a look with these three colors and I thought it was just "too much." They really don't go well together...At least for me..But each color separately is really pretty and pigmented. I would definitely recommend it.

This is the best primer I have used. It makes my face feel silky and really helps my foundation to glide on, which is good for avoiding a cakey face. I haven't noticed a difference in how long my foundation stays on, but I don't have oily skin so that has never been an issue for me. I only use primers half the time because I don't find that it makes a huge difference. Its an extra …Read more
