I highly, highly recommend this product! Not only is it a beautiful color, it is highly pigmented and the glossy effect stays. It is also a very effective lip stain that doesn't bleed and stays true to it's color. The best thing that I like about this stain is that it is NOT DRYING AT ALL!

I'm actually so happy with YSL lip products that they have become my holy grail …

I was skeptical after I bought this, considering my skin is a combination of oily and dry (dry being the bigger percentage).

That thought quickly changed. I LOVE this. The powder is fine and gives me light, smooth coverage. It evens out my imperfections and pores and stays put for hours, and I mean hours. I was out doing capoeira, dancing and walking a ton, and even ten hours later …

I am in love with this hand cream! After applying, it does leave a very slight film of greasiness on your skin that will go away after 2 minutes or so. The smell is incredible and it really moisturizes and soothes my hands. This has now become my HG hand cream. Love it! I will definitely be buying more from Soap & Glory in the future. How surprising, for the price you pay, you get such a …Read more

Shampoo - Burt's Bees - Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet Shampoo [DISCONTINUED]

Contrary to what some people are saying about this shampoo, I feel that it really works for me! I have very thick straight hair that is a little oily but this shampoo cleansed it really well and made my hair really shiny and healthy looking. The concoction does cause a little bit of frizz, but nothing a good conditioner and serum can't help with after. The smell is also an added bonus! I …Read more

This is my buy-one-time product.. meaning I will only purchase once and not again. I think I personally prefer a normal brush than comb.

This mascara would be good for a mascara-top-coat. Meaning putting your lengthening mascara first, then this over. The brush doesn't really help application but in fact doesn't really spread the product out properly.. It kind of sticks to …

I'm lucky to find one of this in my skin tone. Just a small dollop of this product is enough for me. I like that this foundation doesn't cake up my face and it actually enhances my skin; not COVER it or suffocate it.

Price-wise, it's pretty expensive for a small bottle.. But I think it's worth it especially for the quality. I wouldn't call this my HG …

Let me start off by saying that the shimmer of this cream eyeshadow is just indescrible. The packaging is really pretty and I want all of them :)

The colours are great for highlighting or inner lid, or just all over your lid. It can also be used as a base (for shimmer/glittery) colours.

The colours are really more shimmery than pigmented, but you definitely still can see …

This is a beautiful crimson colour that gives a nice glaze after applying.. It has a nice tint of brown to it, too.

It doesn't streak much but the colour can get a little uneven.. But it's a nice colour to have!

I love this green. I think this is a hit-or-miss colour. I personally love it. It reminds me of spring colours! Pastel-like green with shimmer and it doesn't look too boring.

I use it with yellow e/s and it looks amazing!
