I bought this brush a few months ago, thinking I *had* to have it cause it was different from every other brush I had. The brush itself is very well-made. It has short, dense, rounded bristles that are super soft and doesn't shed. It sat around in my brush organizer, completely unloved until a few weeks ago. I just couldn't figure out how to use it for but couldn't bear parting …Read more

I really like this blush. It is sheer, but it is perfect for a natural flushed-face look. I got this in a palette with 2 blushes and 4 eyeshadows so I could try out the line without spending oodles of cash. The palette was $38 and well-priced in my opinion. I can't really comment on the packaging (mine came in a cardboard palette not the plactic clamshells the blushes normally come in). …Read more

This cleanser is highly recommended on some online forums and for good reason! This cleans skin completely without drying, removes every trace of makeup, and really does help clear up and prevent pimples. I have very sensiotive, acne-prone skin and this cleanser helps keep my acne under control without aggrevating my sensitive skin. I received an 8 oz. bottle in a swap and loved it so much, I …Read more

WOW! I must start by saying that I work in a paint store so my nails get very beat up throughout the day. Because of this, I very rarely paint my nails, but my hubby had been bugging me to put some cute color on my nails, so I picked this up in 300 (a really pretty peachy-pink with gold shimmer) and the clear. I applied the color first (no base coat) then topped it off with the clear to …Read more

This stuff is great! It was recommended to my by some great girls on the forums and I'm so glad I decided to buy it. I imagine it can be pretty hard to find for some people, but I was lucky enough to have a fragrance outlet 10 minutes from my house that carried the entire line of NYX products. The price is great ($8 a tube)---I would pay twice that for this!

I have pretty long …

I ordered this trying to find a replacement for their discontinued intensive light. I read in a magazine that peach is supposed to disguise dark circles. It did not work well on me, it just looked fake. I wish they would bring the intensive light back cause the yellow in that works wonders on my dark circles. The search is on for another mineral concealer...

I love these lipbalms! They are the best tinted lipbalms I've tried. They actually moisturize, unlike a lot of tinted lipbalms out there, leave a slightly glossy sheen, and have the perfect amount of color (sheer but not too sheer). I got a few as extras in a swap and immediately had to have more! Right now, I have mango, fig, and pomegranate and I love them all. Mango is the perfect …Read more

This moisturizer is wonderful! I am a huge fan of Weleda and their Skin Food has been a staple in my household for YEARS! When I discovered this at Target I had to try it! I bought the tarvel size tube and started using it as my night cream. I instantly fell in love! I have sensitive combo skin that is often on the drier side (rarely oily) and this moisturizes super well without irritating …Read more

I guess I am in the minority here. I got this in a swap. I agree the sponge applicator puff sucks, I don't use it. But the actual product is very good. Perfect coverage and the fair shade is a perfect match for my NC20 skintone. I buff it on with my EM Flat top brush which works 1,000X's better than the puff that is attached to this. This is probably the best drugstore mineral …Read more

I just ordered a full-size of this (skipped the sample) after hearing rave reviews and I'm so glad I did! This is my fav. EM blush! Looks very natural and is a great every-day color. I would categorize this shade as a shimmery nude (more beige than peach or pink). Perfect!
