The first time I used this, I pushed too hard on the product and the entire balm/scrub broke off! So basically, be careful. Despite this minor mishap I continued using the product and can attest to its awesomeness. It smells so yummy, the scrub really helps eliminate flakes and the balm makes my lips incredibly soft. Would definitely repurchase (and try not to break the second time around)!

I really like having three shades on hand and I get great undereye coverage with this palette, but it doesn't last! The initial finish is better than anything else I've tried but within two hours (I'm prone to rubbing my eyes) it's as though I never applied it to begin with. I even set the concealer with powder when I'm done. What a pity - I would totally love this if it …Read more

I used Smashbox Photo Finish almost exclusively for years because although it was a bit slimy and thick, I just wasn't satisfied with the application and staying power of my foundation when I used other primers. Last week I picked this up on a whim and I'm officially converted! I love how the green tint lessens the redness on my cheeks and the finish is great: smooth but not heavy …Read more

It's pretty obvious this gloss wasn't created for an everyday natural look, but it's amazing as a standout gloss! The fuschia color is bold and the excessive pink sparkles aren't overkill for a night out. I would definitely repurchase...

This mascara really didn't do much for me. The small wand was nice, since I have Asian eyes and it allowed me to easily reach my inner and outer lashes, but that was probably the only thing I liked.

The smell is the same as the regular Lash Injection, and I absolutely hate it. This may be a personal thing since it doesn't seem to bother many other people, but I just …

If it weren't for the price, I wouldn't even hesitate to repurchase this product. I got a deluxe sample from Sephora and I just LOVE it! It feels nice, doesn't leave my skin totally tight and bothered, and actually manages to remove most of my eye makeup (a tough feat). I love foaming cleansers in general but this one beats out all the rest!

Wow! I bought this a long time ago on a whim but never got around to using it.

I finally applied it for the first time just yesterday and I'm in LOVE! This is definitely my HG blue - it's not so dark that it falls into the goth trend, but it's still gorgeously deep. If you love blues, definitely buy this.

Wow, I'm definitely in the minority here - while this product isn't HG for me, I'm pretty impressed for the price. The color works really well on my skin and while it's sheer, it covers just enough of the redness on my cheeks. I haven't broken out yet, which is also a good thing.

The only downside is that immediately after application, I tend to look a bit …

I have possibly the sparsest, shortest lashes in existence, and am constantly trying out new mascaras. I bought this one on a whim and have to say I was rather disappointed for the price. On one hand, it does an excellent job lengthening my lashes with minimal clumping. On the other hand, it runs and smudges far too easily for my taste - all it took was a little tearing to create black smudges …Read more
