Gosh, what can I say about this product...I can't live without it. It has been THE ONLY thing to EVER help with my cystic acne. I'm not just saying I've tried everything just to make a point...I've literally tried MOST products out there for cystic acne from over the counter to RX (spending thousands, I'm sure) and this AHA has been the only thing to work. I use it at …Read more

I've had such great luck with this primer. Me being someone who can't tolerate any silicones and every primer I've tried, has something in it that breaks me out. This DOES NOT break me out. It makes my face super soft and blurs my pores better than any other primer I have experienced. It's not a complexion cure all but it does help. I actually put this over my foundation …Read more

HG HG. I never thought such an inexpenisve mascara would ever be my holy grail, but this is. I do stray and try other mascara's but I come back to this one. It never flakes on me, never smears, stays true all day. Makes my lashes full, long with only a few swipes!

I wish I could be one of the people who liked this product, I had high hopes. Initially, the liner looked pretty fantastic, bold, very standout-ish. But after a couple hours, it seemed to melt and smudge. I wouldn't dare put this on my waterline or bottom lash line because when I did, it melted and smeared onto my lower lid and made me look like a raccoon. 24/7 staying power....not quite …Read more

I really wanted to join the others in liking this product but it was pretty terrible for my oily skin. It actually made it worse. A greasy mess more like it. I LOVE the alima concealer, but the foundation didn't work for me at all. The coverage is great and the look right after application is amazing, thus 2 lippes. But after that, gosh no. Oil, melting, etc etc. I even used the Alima …Read more

Out of all MMU I've used, this beats all of them so far. It covers amazingly. I've got a lot to cover, acne and scars :( The staying power is pretty fantastic, it doesn't melt away like most MMU's do for me. I can use this as a spot concealer as well. The packaging is wonderful too because you can close off the sifter. The only downside for me is that I have oil …Read more

At first, this was an amazing find for me! Initially, the application looked wonderful. It covers pretty good for a TM even though I needed concealer but no TM will cover dark red scarring and acne, so of course you'll need a concealer. BUT my face looked so natural and light. A few hours passed and I was very greasy, very! It seems to rub off easily or melt away along with breaking out …Read more

All I can say about this concealer is WOW. It covers with a small amount, it last forever, sweatproof for me and ALSO looks the most natural based on all the concealers I've used in the past. Ladies, I've used this to cover the worst of the worst, cystic acne. Although, I have to say, I'm upset that I can't use it anymore because I'm sensitive to some of the …Read more

I can see the mixed feelings on this mascara but I'm gonna have to say I LOVE IT. There's a technique to it that never fails me and I was tought this buy my favorite SA makeup artist, Fred :) He told me: use the "s" curve side first, going side to side in short motions as you move up along the lashes, if that makes any sense! THEN turn the "s" curve down and move …Read more

my review is on the product itself, not the applicator tool because i was given a sample only. this mineral powder with a kabuki brush, appears to me, the same as BE. i'm wearing it as we speak and i have a sheen that i'm not fond of. PLUS because i have oily skin, i have a sheen and oil slick going on and i could just shove my face in a paper bag right now, hideous. i've …Read more
