So "meh" on this product. I have it in "Brown."

It starts out looking pretty nice. I have relatively thick brows that peter out at the ends and can get unruly. This product does a good job of filling in those edges while slicking down the other hairs.

My complaint? It doesn't last. Within 8 hours, most of the product has worn off, even on days in …

I should've listened to MUA! I wanted a sheer bright color to wear to work that would last until lunch. It is a sheer, pretty bright lipstick (I had Crush and Zip), but the colors lasted for an hour, max. So not worth the price. I can usually trust Beautypedia, but I think they missed the mark with this one.

Never thought I'd say this about such a cheap primer but--this is the best! I refuse to spend big bucks on something I have to replace kind of frequently, and there is no need with this. I have extremely oily lids, and this makes the sparkliest eyeshadow stick like glue. VERY recommended.

Oh, this palette. I think it's too good for me. The colors are GORGEOUS (so much so that I, a shy person, found out about it by asking a supervisor what she'd been wearing on her lids) and easy to apply. However, you absolutely absolutely absolutely need a primer with these shadows. They don't fade, as do most shadows on me--instead they splay all over my face within a few hours …Read more

A disappointing eyeliner. It'd been highly recommended on the NYT, but it smudges like no one's business. Granted that I have oily eyelids and live in a more humid environment, so please take this with a grain of sand. The color is nice, however (I got a deep black).

The color is gorgeous when you first apply it, but I find that the shine and gloss wear off after about 30 minutes, leaving my lips looking crusty. Too bad, because it really is a pretty color.

If I could give this shampoo a negative rating, I would. I have an oily scalp and color-treated hair, and was looking for a shampoo to help with greasiness. This! This is not it. It not only DESTROYED the ends of my hair over the period of two weeks, it made my scalp even oilier. Instead of my hair looking slick after about 24 hours, I had oily roots after about 4 hours. So, so, SO …Read more

I subscribed due to a blog post, and I have no regrets! I was given a mix of Clindamycin, azelaic acid and tretinoin, as I am in my 30's and still have acne. Fun times! The customer service is A+, as well--the NP I work with answers all my questions in a timely and friendly manner. My skin looks a lot better (as a result of both the cream and the zinc soap/vitamin C combo recommended).

This sunscreen was a success as I don't believe it broke me out and it CERTAINLY worked as a sunscreen--no sun got through! However, it's so thick and greasy; applying and wearing it was a drag. I even avoided sunscreen because the thought of having it on was so unpleasant, rather defying the purpose.

Really, really, really don't recommend this for oily skin, or for …

This was my eyeliner for the longest time, and if I hadn't started working 12 hours days, I would have stuck with it (had to pick something waterproof).

This is an absolutely awesome eyeliner which definitely lasts through an eight-hour workday easily, even with my slimy-oily eyelids (and I hate wearing primer, so add on a few hours if you do). It's definitely the best …
