I got this on clearance at Walgreens, I think this is because they were/are moving to packaging it as a serum in a squeeze bottle. The one I purchased is in a spray bottle and I love it! The spray is really wide, and two spritzes provide so much moisture! I think this product is actually marketed to curly and/or textured hair. However, for reference, my hair is pretty average, I have a lot of …Read more

Smell: Smells amazing, as stated below, it smells fresh, green, unisex, clean...very lovely!
Lather: It lather's really well! It also has micro particles of some sort that give it some exfoliating properties.
Value: I finished the bar, and it lasted me from May - Sept. with daily …

For reference, I'm pretty fair and have acne prone, combination skin. This powder didn't break me out. I love this boxed powder. It works well to contour and sculpt cheeks, but quickly! I first purchased this back in 2006/2007. I used it as prescribed with the included brush, sweeping it across my cheeks with the highlighter on top, bronzer on the bottom. And yes, it's a …Read more

I love this! So surprised at the poor reviews. I use it as part of my everyday eye look. It's basically a VERY shimmery nude. Which isn't a bad thing. I use it on my lids by itself, or over barely branded color tattoo for a bit more oomph (for a natural eye.) It really brightens, and makes me look wide awake. I also use this over a much darker color to brighten and shimmer. In …Read more

I love this, and use it almost every day. It's a very shimmery, frosty white loose mineral shadow. I do not use it all-over my lid as I think it's harsh and unnatural. However, I love it as a highlighter beneath my brows and on the inner corners of my eyes. It's really very beautiful and brightening when used that way. I've been using it since I got it in a swap in the …Read more

I really love e.l.f. products, however this was a dud and epic fail for me. They were extremely chalky with no pigment. I tried them dry, I tried them wet, I tried them with primer, without primer. All epic fails. Also, the colors were odd. I think I was expecting this neutral palette to have warm undertones to the colors, but they were definitively leaning cool. I was actually going to …Read more

I truly love this stuff. It's a tad thick, but smoothes well over the lips. It's super, super shiny and it's very moisturizing. This stuff has actually gotten me compliments on how amazing my lips look, and questions as to what gloss I was wearing. It smells good, and no, it does not actually freshen the breath, but the mint scent it strong, so it may seem that way. Plus, the …Read more

May/21/2013

This is an ok mask. My skin is combination and acne prone. I get cystic, hormonal acne, stress acne, not whiteheads and black heads. For my skin, I've found clay masks to be a wonderful overnight treatment for this sort of acne. I picked this mask up some time ago thinking that the sulfur would be better than a regular clay mask. I had gotten a deluxe sample years ago of a DDF sulfur mask …Read more

I too stocked up and bought like 6 of these at the dollar tree some time ago. I've been rationing them out, lol because I'm pretty sure its been discontinued and I do love it! It's a great everyday mascara (it doesn't give me a falsies look), it lengthens and volumizes, the lashes don't get hard after the mascara dries, and it doesn't smudge. The brush is very …Read more
