Easy brows especially for beginners. I don't like the shape of the pencil though. it has a tapered edge - fat at the bottom and thin on top. I don't like the fat edge for filling in brows because it looks unnatural to just have blocks of colour in your brows rather than strokes.

The brush on the other end is useful but the cap gets loose after a while.

While this is a very pretty palette, I find the quality very inconsistent. Fresco is the only non patchy matte in this palette. African violet is gorgeous, but guava and fresco look the same on the eyes. The two darkest shades in particular have a ton of fallout too.

I have used 1% trentinoin in the past and my skin went crazy for about a month afterwards just gettinf used to it/purging. with this formula from The Ordinary, there is none of that purging. My skin didn't break out but it just worked to create smooth skin right from the first use. 2 drops is enough to cover my entire face. There is no smell and it is a milky formula that glides on easily …Read more

I'm so suprised to see the other 3 bad reviews of this product because this and the ordinary's caffine eye serum are my favorite products. Maybe they have recently reformulated or something.

I bought this after seeing Wayne Goss rave about the ordinary on youtube. I pretty much saw visible results right away. The most visible was my pores appearing smaller. There was slight …

I have finally found my HG product for dark circles. This stuff blew my mind right from the first use. It is tied for 1st place among my The Ordinary favourites (The Alpha Lipoic Acid is my other favourite).

I love the dropper because it gives me the precise amount that I need. I only need 1 drop for both eyes! Right from day 1, this visibly made my dark circles look less pronounced …

edit: changed my rating from a 5 to a 3 on this one because I noticed that this will burn and itch my skin when it's drier than usual (I'm combo skin but my skin gets dry in winter). I prefer the new vit c in silicone and I wouldn't repurchase this one.

I read quite mixed reviews about this vitamin C so I was quite nervous to try it out. The main problems seemed to be the …

I wish I could give this a zero rating. The pencil is so flaky that bits of the wood flaked off into my eye causing intense pain and burning. The actual colour doesn't say long on the waterline at all. The cream shade wore away in about half an hour and the black shade gave me panda eyes when I wore it on the waterline. I also tried using it on my upper lid and it stays a bit better there …Read more

I really wanted to love this. I love body butters and most other body shop products that I've tried. It smelt lovely and felt really creamy when I swatched it on my hand so I went ahead and got one.

Firstly it does nothing for my lips. In fact they feel even more dry than before. This stuff just kind of sits on top of my lips and leaves this awful whitecast. I will probably end up …
