Let me start by saying I have combo skin (dry-oily), I am on my thirties and I live in a humid place.
This is one of those products i have mixed feelings about after several months using it.
I love the shade range, the medium coverage and how well it wears on those days that you feel your face melting due to heat and sweat.
From the begining I didnt like the wear time ( around 4-5 …

This toner is advertised as being able " to help hydrate, firm and restore my skin's moisture balance" and after using it for 4 months I can definitely say it's doing nothing for my skin when it comes to those promises. I am not a miracle believer, but for 24$ I expected something more than a refreshing product with a nice smell.
The reason i am giving it 2 lipsticks …

This product works wonders for a 5$ product. Nice packaging, easy to apply, great coverage, it doesn't crease for 5-6 hours and all this for an incredible price.

I am always looking for great concealers as my dark under eyes problem is awful and this one is one of my 5 top picks. And without a doubt the cheapest one of the 5 which makes it great for daily use.

Usually my combination skin is a mixture of normal cheeks and greasy t-zone, but this winter I have been feeling my cheeks drier than ever. After testing my skin, Kiehl's saleswoman suggested this cleaner (and several more products, of course). I decided to give it a try and I am happy overall. However, is it worth the price? The answer for me is not.

Pros: A drop will be enough …

The best thing about this product it's the packaging. Not only looks great, but I really believe that it helps maintaining the quality of the ingredients. However, when the best thing I can say about a product it's about its packaging you can see where this review is going.

As I have mentioned in other reviews my dark circle problem is scary, I don't expect miracles …

I have been using it for years and it never lets me down. I use it in the mornings just to feel refreshed from my bed and at nights to wipe out my make up and it's incredible how well it works. Specially baring in mind that is for sensitive skin!

As I have been using it for years, some times I fall into the temptation of buying something new but it says a lot about this product …

I love this product! It's my favourite Benefit Product of all time. It leaves my eyelashes looking amazing!
I recommend you to buy it on a travel size, because my experience is that once open it will only last the promised 6 months which is the worst thing about this product, as it is quite expensive for a mascara. Expensive yes, but totally worth it.
It's with Too Faced …

I won the complete line on a site I usually buy products from and I couldn't have been more delighted. I think is the first time I had a whole line of products in my routine from the same line and therefore I believed that it was impossible I wouldn't see the results. Man, was I wrong...

This product was the worst of the bunch. Not only didn't work as promised, but it …

I have been using this product for more than a year now and I think is one of the best Western BB creams I have tried.

I love the treatment side of it. The 50 sunscreen factor works really well and the same goes for the vitamin C treatment. Having a combination skin I just use a serum in the morning and then the BB cream and I don't feel like I need a moisturiser.

I am on the fence with this one.

In one hand it really works well as a primer when it comes to pores, helping my base or bb cream to look better than ever. On the other hand, after several weeks using it, I have realised that my blackhead problem is worse than ever. The only new thing in my routine was this product, so I will stop using it for several weeks and check whether is this …
