My review is slanted because instead of reviewing this just on its own merits I am comparing it to Armani's Face Fabric, which for my skin is superior to Sheer Focus. I have normal to dry skin and started with Light in the Sheer Focus which was too dark on my LM and BB Warm Ivory skin. I exchanged it for the Fair, and while the color was better, the Sheer Focus did not provide the natural …Read more

This is the BEST deodorant. I have repurchased over and over again for years. It keeps me dry and odor free. Often it is sold out at the L'Occitane store but I always keep a stash on hand. I found this because of MUA, thanks!!!

This is a fantastic iron. I bought and returned the super expensive GHD and have had a CHI and Sedu for many years. After reading the reviews here and stumbling upon this iron at Walmart I decided to give it a try. It is truly fantastic for my course highlighted wavy hair. It heats up very quickly and really smooths and straightens my hair better than any other iron. Also great for curling my …Read more

This is the best bronzer! I have used Guerlain, Dior, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown and others. This is the most natural looking bronzer I've ever used on my fair skin. It truly makes me look like I have a real tan--no shimmer, just beautiful healthy color. I would have never tried this one if not for the reviews here, thanks MUA!!

This is my HG YLBB lip gloss. I am a fair brunette without a lot of lip pigment. This is a beautifully perfect pinkish brown color that fades to a lovely stain on my lips. Lasts longer than other lip glosses and provides fantastic color. Love the sweet smell. Will definitely buy a back up.

After reading the raves on MUA I had to try this iron. All I can say is it is definitely going back. Definitely not worth the price and does not outperform my Sedu iron which is about $100 less. Yes it does heat up quickly but that's about the only advantage I can see. I also felt it was drying out the texture of my hair whereas the Sedu does not. I say save your money.

I give myself license to try every foundation I read great reviews of on MUA so you can imagine I've tried quite a few. This one wins hands down. I have normal to dry skin. The LM stick foundation gives the most beautiful natural finish while providing excellent coverage. It makes my skin glow and look flawless without settling into pores or fine lines. It can even be used around the eyes …Read more

I've purchased this wonderful handcream repeatedly. If I don't use it for a while and then apply at night, the next morning my nails are always restored to a beautiful pale pink and the cuticles are repaired. No other handcream gives me these results. The jar lasts forever as I don't need to use a lot for each application. I'm actually getting ready to order another jar, great …Read more

I've tried every high end foundation on the market and the Giorgio Armani Shaping Designer is fantastic for my normal to dry skin. I wear #4 (I'm Warm Ivory in LM and Bobbi Brown) and the color is perfect for my fair skin. The other Armani foundations did not work for me for one reason or another. The Shaping Designer coverage is buildable which is really nice for days when I want light …Read more

I've been using this foundation for about 1 month and love it. I am a PPP with brown hair and eyes and use the lightest color. I use it as a finishing spray over my makeup (blush, foundation and eyeshadow, as suggested by the MA at Saks) and it provides a natural airbrushed glow. Afterwards I apply mascara and lipstick. I do not apply a lot of the Air Touch, just back and forth over my face …Read more
