I apply it after I curl my lashes with a Revlon lash curler. It does a good job of keeping my curl (courtesy of the spoon brush), but it's not good for volumizing. You can't really apply more than 2 layers before it becomes ineffectual. You'd probably have to use a different mascara (perhaps Maybelline Volum' Express Collosal - the yellow tube) for multiple layers. For daily …Read more

I got the second-lightest shade. I apply it to specific spots after my foundation. The applicator is pretty easy to use; it's similar to a that of a tube lip gloss. I pat/blend with my finger, and it does a pretty decent job of concealing. It looks really patchy and unnatural on my under-eye circles, so I'll probably use something else for that. Otherwise, it's a decent concealer …Read more

It works! Even though the instructions say to use it 3-4 times a week, I use it nightly. I apply it on the T-zone, where the pores are most visible. After using it for a week, they're a lot smaller. I'm not sure about the price, but I heard it's been discontinued.

I got this as a birthday present about a year ago. I think it's around $8 at Target, which is kinda expensive. Overall, they're not very pigmented, especially the purples. The browns are okay, I suppose. The whites are good for highlighting the browbone (esp. the top one). The packaging is sturdy, but definitely not a keeper.

This is a great shampoo if you have oily hair. In my case, I have to shampoo every day or else my hair gets too oily and this shampoo does the job. It comes out clear, which means there's no gunk in there and you don't really need all that much to use it effectively.

This works well to get all the oil and dirt out because my skin feels taut and dry after washing with this. It hasn't worked miracles on my acne...yet. I actually broke out the first few times I used it. It's a bit annoying when the product doesn't come nicely out of the tube.

Cleansers - Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Cleanser

It's pretty strong (10% benzoyl peroxide) and kind of stings and dries out your face, so be sure to moisturize well afterward. As a daily cleanser, it doesn't do much - it hasn't really helped my acne and it doesn't get rid of all the oil. That said, I now use it just as a **spot treatment** and it works great: at night, put some on any acne cysts or whatever and it dries out …Read more
