This product is amazing for the price. I have oily skin, so I apply a pretty thick layer of this on my eyelids before eye shadow and eyeliner. Since I have pretty fair skin, I use the shade Sheer, and it doubles as a concealer for my eyelids. They have a couple other shades for people of different skin tones, and they also have a white shade called Pearl which I'm assuming is supposed to …Read more

This concealer has become one of my HG products over the last few months. I was trying out different concealers every time I needed a new one, and I was getting sick of spending $20+ on concealers that didn't go well with my skin tone or barely provided the coverage I need for my dark circles. I saw that this product had a lot of good reviews and was even considered a dupe for a well-known …Read more

This product feels so refreshing on my oily skin. The scent is lovely, too. Perfect for giving me a little bit of moisture when I'm sitting in my air-conditioned office or when I'm outside in the LA sun. I've also used it to set makeup, and it seems to do a solid job. Took off one lippie because it's hard to tell exactly how much it does for my skin, but it's a pretty …Read more

As a human oil well who still gets dry patches around my acne, it can be pretty hard to find a reliable moisturizer. I had been using Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream, but when I ran out I decided to try this product since it seemed similar. It doesn't feel quite as moisturizing as the Hada Labo cream, but overall it's a very similar product for a few dollars less. It has a light …Read more

I've been using this product for several months now, and I've been happy with it. It works particularly well with the dark circles under my eyes, but I'm also able to use it to cover up small pimples and redness around my nose and on my cheeks. It's a little too orange for my liking, but I'm still able to use it despite my pink undertones. The coverage is somewhat …Read more

Unfortunately, this wasn't a great product for my oily skin. While I liked the creamy texture and the smell was nice, I noticed no benefit to my skin over time. Instead, I noticed more pimples and whiteheads. This is a rich product, so I only used small amounts, but that didn't seem to matter. I stopped using it long before I finished the jar and moved back to using nothing more than a …Read more

I have very, very oily skin, and while this product is meant for normal/oily, in the future I would only use it in the winter. It doesn't provide a crazy amount of moisture, but unfortunately for me, even a moderate amount can be too much. I finished this product off in the summer months, and at times it didn't feel like it was absorbing well. But when I wore the product during colder …Read more

The marketing is silly, but I'm still a big fan of this mascara. I'm lucky to have long lashes already, but they're sparse. This mascara does a fair job of making them look fuller, and the color is dark without looking too black next to my brown eyeliner. I don't mind the shape of the brush, but I don't think it works any miracles. What I actually like most about the …Read more

Since I have very oily skin, this product ended up being a great choice for me. It wasn't too heavy at all, and my skin always felt soft in the mornings. The scent wasn't particularly memorable, and I'm guessing that's a good thing. On the other hand, for people with dry skin, I'm not sure this product would be moisturizing enough. I bought this as part of the "3 …Read more

I got this product as part of the "3 Little Wonders" set. For my oily skin, the serum gave me just enough moisture to get me through the day. I noticed some reviewers didn't like the smell, but I thought the citrus scent was nice and not too overwhelming. The packaging was great, and it made it very easy to apply the serum without contaminating it. While my skin didn't feel …Read more
