This is the only product I've tried that actually keeps oil at bay all day. I apply in the morning around 6:30 and my skin doesn't begin to get oily until about 7 pm -- and by that time, I'm usually home, so I don't mind. I first began using it under my foundation like a primer on my t-zone. But I found that it made my foundation look a little strange and gave my skin a …Read more

A very good concealer. I use this for my dark circles, and it works fairly well. The texture is creamy, thin, and not oily. It has great staying power, too. It doesn't settle into creases, either.

This has become a staple product in my hair regimen. I have fine hair and I use it once a week. It really strengthens and restores my hair. My curls become bouncy again, too. I always follow this with Joico's Moisture Recovery Balm. A winning combo.

I am NC45 and I have this palette in No. 4.


When I first bought this, I was very excited because the whole idea behind this palette is great. 5 different shades that you can mix and match to conceal and correct different areas of your face.


The orange shade was very good for neutralizing my dark circles. I used it sometimes with no other makeup because it worked …

Though it isn't perfect, this is the best primer I've tried, so I suppose I will continue repurchasing it until I find a better primer to replace it.

Pros:
- A visible difference in makeup- smoother application and appearance

Cons:
- Packaging is terrible. I hate having to stick my finger into the jar. Some of it always gets stuck under my nails. Should …

This is a great product. I have fine, 4a hair and this product works very well to take away frizz. It also moisturizes well.

I don't apply this product in sections. After applying my leave-in conditioner, I take a small amount -- just enough to coat my hands with a thin film -- and smooth the product over my hair. I do this about 3x. Using it this way, I never get crunchiness or …

This is a good brow filler. I have it in brunette. It lasts all day. One must not be heavy handed and be sure to blend well after applying for a natural look. The gel on the other end is just alright. I prefer to use clear hair gel, which works better for me.

OMG!! Why hadn't I tried this sooner??!! I never knew what a good deep conditioner is supposed to do until I tried this one!!

This product does everything for my hair -- moisturizes, smoothes, shines, and makes it silky for days!!! I think this is my new HG!! Bye-bye Redken Real Control Mask!

This product is pretty nice. I tried it it before blow-drying, and it didn't bring down the volume of my hair or seem to do much. Smooth Down Heat Glide works better for that.


But after styling, on my flat-ironed hair, 2 pumps of this product makes my hair sooo soft and silkier than ever before and adds shine, too. It melts into my hair. I like to use it on my ends. It …
