I was surprised to see so many negative reviews of this product - I guess YMMV. In my experience, I use this product *by itself* as I don't wear foundation, but alone for me (or paired with powder) it does an amazing job of blurring my pores and evening my skin tone. I love it! It wears for a few hours before my oils seep through and I need to reapply if I want my skin to look really nice …Read more

I love this diaper creme! I tried several top drugstore variety diaper rash brands on the market (some out of desperation, when I didn't have any beloved Weleda on hand, like desitin) and NONE worked like this one.

My little girl would frequently develop irritation in her private regions while wearing a diaper, and the only creme that would effectively get RID of the rash in ONE …

EDIT: I am bumping this down from 5 to 3 stars because... the color. The formula and lasting power is still great, but I noticed that this shade tends to veer more towards a sort of lilac/purple-ish tone that isn't typically what I am going for. It feels a little "little girly". I have been modifying the shade with a Mac lip pencil in Whirl to deepen the tone and make it more to my …Read more

Ok, I have had two tubes of Eldorado, and liked it enough to purchase another couple of colors. But what I have noticed, and what I cannot stand about these, is that this eyeliner is *STICKY* and I can feel it all day long. Every time I blink. I hate that!

While the color is absolutely beautiful, staying power is stellar. But sticky? Ugh. I am not sure I'll wear what I have …

I absolutely LOVE this lip pencil. I'm a bit of a lipstick junkie, always on the lookout for a new beauty to try out. A girlfriend of mine had this and let me try it... I was hesitant to shell out $25 for it ($10 more than the MAC lipsticks I ususally buy!) but every time I saw my friend wearing it, the shade struck me as so perfect I decided I had to give it a go.

Well, this …

I generally love UD products, and am a devotee to their eye makeup in general. I saw their Naked Skin foundation come out, and as I had an event I needed to go to and put my so-called "best face forward", I got a color match and bought it without thinking too much about it since it's a brand that I love.

Well. I will say that the color match is impeccable. The woman …

I love this cleanser. I have combination oily/dry skin, and use Retin A on a regular basis so I can definitely get overly dry. First off, you only need a tiny amount of this cleanser to get a whole lot of lather. I use a half pea size drop to get my whole face and neck. At this rate, with daily use the 5oz bottle will last me a year and a half, so the high price really isn't so high at …Read more

Sep/01/2012

I am always surprised by the negative views on lipsticks that I love, so much so that if I'm shopping online I start looking for (negative) keywords that people use so I can try to find other similar shades.

I love Paramount! This beautiful brownish red color is my current daily lipstick. I have hazel-green eyes, pale skin, and auburn hair and this just ties together and …

This is a great product. It offers a nice assortment between bright/fun colors and sassy neutrals. great combo possibilities. The only one I never use is zero. It travels wonderfully, and so far no problems with the magnet losing it's stick and leaving the lid to fall open, or breakage of the shadows. UD makes my favorite shadows, and I am in the camp that is excited they are doing more …Read more
