Glad it was only a sample. This foundation made for a crappy makeup experience, about as crappy as the brand IMO (had to wash it off and not wear any foundation). Blends terribly, is streaky, looks oily and has non-existent coverage, atrocious for such an expensive foundation. Might as well mix water and chalk with some french fry grease and apply, it would've probably worked better lol …Read more

Pink: Wanted to like this, but it caused an allergic reaction.
Green: Again, thought it would be a good purchase, but it did nothing for red spots. Hardly even blended well, no matter how much blending or how little applied. Left a bright a mint color on my face lol. Not cute.

Hopefully Essence can improve these products so the above issues aren't a problem anymore.

Got this when it was on sale. Was looking for a paraben-free face powder with a mirror, that doesn't cost nearly half of a hundred dollars (sadly a rare find). The perfect shade - not only matches my regular skin tone, but also matches my skin whenever I'm tan! Compared to Almay, it mattifies my oily skin better, and requires less re-applying.

Would be great if they could …

Lotions/ Creams - NUXE - Huile Prodigieuse (Multi-Purpose Dry Oil)

1.0

Feb/23/2017

Hit and miss. The concept of a multi-purpose, luxurious, scented oil is great, but it's just not carried out very well.

Some of the ingredients are a cause for concern, and after doing some research have found that they're carcinogenic, allergy-triggering and shouldn't be breathed in, esp. Benzyl Salicylate (which is banned in the EU according to ewg, even though the …

Very feminine flowery scent. Not too overpowering (although the cream has a stronger scent). Beautiful packaging as well. It doesn't bother my sensitive skin at all! Would recommend.

I got the soap and cream as a gift. Very feminine flowery scent, beautiful packaging as well. The cream has a stronger version of the scent compared to the soap bar, which is fine. This scent doesn't bother my sensitive skin at all! Would recommend.

Mehh..I got this when it was on sale and decided to try it out. The bristles on the wand are shaped weird, doesn't work too good when I apply it normally. So I only use the fuller area of the wand, which can be awkward to apply on my middle and inner eyelashes.

Overall, it's okay when it comes to making lashes look fuller. There are better mascaras out there, though.

Easy to apply, beautiful deep plum color and comes with a sponge tip for smudging! Doesn't bother my sensitive eyes, which is why I previously got Intense Midnight and Intense Peacock which are also great eyeliners IMO. Decided to try this shade and am glad I did! Would recommend!
