This foundation has a lovely finish! It looks natural but also somehow "finished" I guess because it covers nicely. I am very picky about foundations and this is a winner. It goes on very smoothly but dries darker on application so it's worth getting a sample (Sephora has it). My main concern with foundations is that the color is perfect for me and the finish doesn't look …Read more

i used this to roller set my 2c/3a hair. I thought it was just barely OK. Any drugstore mousse works better. This stuff is like water. Save your money. It didn't add shine or volume, nothing special.

I should have read the reviews on MakeupAlley before buying! This stuff is crap! Made my curls ugly, stringy, gummy. Total waste of money but fortunately, returnable at Sephora. Junk!
OOPS - changing my mind! I may have been too hasty. I tried this again over a better moisturizer and used some gel on top and I'm very pleased with the results. Confusing! I'll have to …

This is the first "radiant" foundation that I enjoy. The finish is gorgeous, yes it is radiant, but not shiny or oily. It just looks healthy and youthful, lit from within. I'm also very pleased that it has such a great SPF - 35 and it didn't settle in fine lines or emphasize pores. It's just a gorgeous foundation. I pair it with Tarte Colored Clay undereye corrector …Read more

This is the very best styling product I have ever tried for my 2c/3a frizzy, unruly curls! I've tried Deva, Ouidad, Curlisto, Bumble & Bumble and a host of others and this is the best by far. I love it! I apply to damp hair, twist a few sections in the front, scrunch, and air dry part of the way and part of the way with a diffuser. If you are terribly frustrated with the Curly Girl …Read more

This terrific corrector is different from any other corrector/concealer that I've tried and I've probably tried 30 of them (samples and some I bought). The computer image doesn't show the color realistically. I bought Light-Medium which I think would work for many skin tones. There's also a darker version.
I was resigned that I would never find a product I really …

This is a crummy eyelash curler, the worst I've ever tried. It is fairly expensive, but if it was a good product, it would have been worth the price. It barely curls my lashes and pinches my skin each time. I threw it out. Complete waste. MAC makes a half lash curler which is excellent so I thought this would be good also. Not! Save your money.

I absolutely love this in the shade TFX 15 (strange name) which is a bright, metallic, corally red. Oddly, it doesn't look garish or weird on me, perhaps because it is quite sheer. I have dark hazel eyes and this shadow makes them pop. I got 2 compliments on this in one day - and I've never had anyone even notice any eyeshadow on me before.

The colors are also unusual …

I got this as a sample and was excited to try it on my dry, colored wavy/curly hair. Do yourself a favor - skip it. It didn't do zip for me.
I've used drugstore and high end conditioners that are way better. I can't remember one as lousy as this. My hair didn't feel like it had been conditioned at all. It felt dry and lifeless. Ugh!

This is the most terrific brow makeup. I lost my brows due to an illness a while back and I have tried every product I can find from both department stores and Sephora. The Brow Blade is in a class by itself. I got Taupe Trap & Brown Sugar to use together for a very realistic look and I can create the most realistic and good looking brows. The Sephora salesperson said it is flying off the …Read more
