I think that the amount of product you receive is obscenely cheap (one inch of foundation, if even that) and it is way overpriced at $8. Why they cheaped out so severely I do not understand. I might if it were a concealer, but for a foundation, there should be more product. If you used this every day, I don't think it would last you longer than a few weeks. Blah! That aside, I do like it. I …Read more

Amazing foundation, amazing price! I'm extremely pale (how I must always preface foundation reviews, hehe) and have the shade 815 Fair (the lightest available). It is a very light shade with pink undertones. It looks far darker in the tube than it does on my skin so I was concerned about that but it is a good match for my skin. I like the cream consistency much more than all of the liquid …Read more

It does blend easily but given that it then virtually disappears completely I wouldn't recommend this concealer! It doesn't cover anything more than maybe mild redness in some areas, on which it melts off within the matter of an hour even with powder, and it isn't effective at concealing my under-eye circles and acne. It just kind of fades away, like the True Match foundation does …Read more

I completely agree with the person who said they should place this in the sunscreen aisle rather than among the moisturizers. Make it more apparent to people that it is a moisturizing sunscreen and not a moisturizer with sunscreen... if that makes sense. Maybe I understand their dilemma now. :P I'm a fan of the L'Oreal Go 360 Clean cleanser for sensitive skin, so when I saw a face …Read more

Inexpensive yet quality alternative to the more expensive lip balms, lip butters, etc. like this. It took me a bit to decide which to buy, as there aren't many shades and most of them looked alike to me but I would deem that the only flaw and I plan to try other colors! I bought Caramel Apple (shimmery light nude shade) and Garnet Gala (shimmery garnet/ruby red shade) and both are very …Read more

Another dud which makes me sad. :( The gel formula is very nice and it absorbed easily and hydrated my skin well. It was also great under my makeup but then, clogging and breakout mania. The worst move on my part is that I did patch-test on the side and back of my neck for about a week and got acne, but still risked it and tried using it on my face. I was asking for it, I guess. Still then, I …Read more

I hope that they never discontinue this. It is the only semi-permanent dye left that I really love since Natural Instincts changed their formula. I have used two shades, the #3 Darkest Brown (Espresso) which I colored my hair with earlier in the year, and #4 Dark Brown (Dark Chocolate) this past weekend. The #3 is as expected, a very dark brown/soft black. The color was great and exactly what I …Read more

Blargh! And yet again I fall for an overhyped and overpriced product. I'm tired of those two things coinciding and willingly falling victim. :P Sadly, I have nothing good to say for this tanner. I'm as white and ghostly as it gets, which in spite of receiving some great ridicule for throughout the years, I for the most part happily embrace and have no problems with being pale. It then …Read more

I love this product so much that holy grail seems like an understatement. Without it, I really would break down and cry. I have been using this since 2008, and nothing has ever come close to it. For the heck of it I have tried other BP treatments throughout the years, from Oxy, Clean & Clear, etc., and they all dried out my skin instantly and broke me out more. I've learned not to stray …Read more

Upon reading all of the hype, I had to give this mask a chance! I have extremely sensitive skin that is acne-prone and even if it is said to be safe and recommended, there is no way I am using ACV on it. I feel my skin begin to burn and turn bright red at the mere thought. So, I have used this mask three times, mixing it with water and applying it with a foundation brush, leaving it to dry for …Read more
