This is one of the LEAST EXPENSIVE and BEST body scrubs on the market. WHY???

1. It's packaged very simply in a squeeze tube (ladies, I KNOW that you have lived through #thestruggle of trying to scoop out a handful of scrub from a jar in the shower without getting water in it!) so it's quite easy.

2. Don't worry, you're not going to slip and fall to your …

Jul/19/2014

This foundation changed my mind about something I've assumed true for many years now: that foundation cannot look impeccable when applied with fingers. I had heard that about F&B in the past, but I'm stubborn and I still tried to apply this with my brush the first two days... As a result, I was very iffy about the finish. It didn't seem to justify the amazing things I had heard …Read more

I'm sorry but this product is absolute crap. I bought into the YouTube hype and went out and purchased the smaller size (thank GOD it was the smaller size - at $30!) hoping for huge results. The coverage, to be fair, is incredible - I have never used a more pigmented concealer. A miniscule amount of product goes a LONG way - a normal sized portion of concealer could probably cover your …Read more

Ricepaper is a gorgeous yellow-beige frosty highlight shade. This is an amazing highlighter for women of color, but it is far too yellow for my NC15 skin if not completely blended out. If you are very fair and want to make this highlighter work for you, I would suggest applying a small amount of Ricepaper to the browbone area, and then popping Nylon right underneath the brow arch - the …Read more

Nov/22/2010

I've been on the search for a concealer that doesn't end up looking cakey over blemishes - a real struggle since many look great when applied, and after a few hours, the coverage appears dried out. This concealer is the first I've used that stays fresh all day. Shade 1 has pink undertones (it would probably be a great undereye concealer, but I use a different product for that) …Read more

I recently rediscovered this in my stash. I find this CCB to be more pigmented than others in the line - if you don't start sparingly when applying to cheeks, you can easily go overboard. When blended, the color is a gorgeous raspberry pink. I am NC15, and it gives my face a natural looking blush that's neither too deep or bright. This also looks amazing on the lips - if you stamp …Read more

Warning LONG REVIEW! If I could sum this product up in three words… 1) Ew 2) Laughable 3) Gross

I was in CVS last night, and I actually wasn’t even looking for this mascara. I was hunting 1000 Calorie Mascara, and I wasn’t sure which company made it. I couldn’t find it, but I needed a new mascara, and I grabbed this one because of the shiny looking tube (typical me — oooo …

I am a huge fan of MAC Fluidline... And Blue Peep is no exception. It is an eyepopping, attention-grabbing, turquoise blue. Ironically, I have not worn it terribly often as a liner on the upper lash line, but recently wore it on the upper and lower lines with a frosty white and silver eyeshadow for an "ice queen" look... It was such a cool effect - bright, shocking blue peeping from …Read more

I don't know what I can really say about Blacktrack that probably hasn't been said before... If I could only have a three products the rest of my life, or even one, Blacktrack fluidline would be it... I have always had such difficulty applying liquid liner and even pencil liner to my upper lash line, and when I discover fluidline my prayers were answered. It has such a smooth, even …Read more

I bought Gorgeous Gold expecting just that... a Gold. Instead GG has become a HG highlight, second only to Nylon really! It's great for blending blues and greens above the crease toward the highlight, and heavenly layered over Nylon on the brow bone, and in the inner tear duct to brighten the eye. Everyone should have this in their collection. It's an absolute must have! I would …Read more
