after being disappointed with the clinique 3 step system, I chose to try out MB products. I spoke with the retailer and they suggested this cleanser along with the grape fruit toner. it does not lather or foam like other cleansers but that doesn't bother me and my skin feels clean after using only a small amount of product. my makeup also is removed when using this cleanser unlike the …Read more

received this in a sample pack from MB. aside from the strong odor, I liked it. my skin feels clean without feeling overly dried out. not sure if I would purchase a full size or not...depends on performance after repeated use.

I really love this blush -- I think it's the right color of pink, its shimmer is just enough, it lasts a long time on my skin, I can build it up for going out, etc. But the reason I gave it 4 lippies is the packaging. I love the way the packaging looks but now that I'm getting to the pan the product around the edges is harder to get on my brush. This was a splurge product for me because …Read more

This is my first MAC purchase and I'm obsessed with it. I wanted a nudey pink shade to wear everyday and I picked this one out. It goes well over my lipsticks and is great by itself. I think the texture is nice and thick, it lasts a long time and the smell/taste is pleasant. I will definitely be purchasing more Lipglasses from MAC in the future!

I chose this foundation because it is oil-free and was recommended while I was at the Clinique counter. The color is good-it perfectly matches my skin color/tone, but the coverage is almost non-existent. I feel like I have no makeup on my face (which in theory sounds good but I also look like I don't have makeup on). I liked the Even Better foundation from Clinique, but I think I'm …Read more

I really wanted to try another L'Oreal mascara after the Voluminous Carbon Black didn't work for me. I picked this one up at CVS because they were having a sale. I like the wand, the packaging, the color but during the day it seems to flake off of my lashes and get under my eyes. This happened with the Carbon Black too. I guess my eyes don't go very well with L'Oreal products?

This is my go-to Summer nail color.I think it compliments everyone's skin tones and is gorgeous for vacation or just sitting in class or at work. And it also makes me smile.

I've already gone through 2 bottles and will definitely be buying more!
