I just finished the giant 32oz pump bottle. It took me a year of almost every night use.
It's on the thin side of lotions, great for summer, not enough moisture for winter.

Overall it's very good, however it's not 4 in 1. After a year of use, my skin doesn't look any different than it did before, but it is soft (as it was before as well). In other words it …

This was a blind buy off a clearance rack. First time I tried it, it reminded me of something I smelled years ago but couldn't put my finger on....laundry soap? Fabric softener? Shampoo? Nah...something else.

Tried it again a few days later and bingo!

Smells just like scented panty liners.

Uh....no thanks.

Took some experimenting to make this work. I usually apply foundation using my fingers, but this doesn't like to play that way-looked mask like and settled into lines. Did different kinds of foundation brushes-better, but not great. Broke out the beauty blender, moistened it and voila! Perfection! A little goes a long way with this, I only use a half pump, and even then, not all of it gets …Read more

One size does not fit all.....
I tried to make this work, but it was utter failure for my skin type.

Skin type: combo/very oily t-zone and dehydrated skin, large pores and
Fine lines with moderate melasma. Not acne prone nor sensitive-at least I got that going for me!

Tried this with:
Light moisturizer with physical sunscreen.....oil break through within 1 …

I have used this off and on for years, and it really is the only thing that works for me that I can buy OTC. It's not a miracle worker, but it does keep my larger melasma in check. I have a lot of freckles, with 3 eraser size "age spots" on my lower cheeks, plus I have larger dark shadows all around my face including my jaw line. In fact on my jaw line, the shadowing looks like I …Read more

Was looking for a bone matte shade to cancel out the redness/pigmentation of my eyelid as a base color. This is not it. It's (almost) white and very sheer, so there's virually no coverage. It is also NOT matte. It looks matte in the package, but it has shimmer-not a lot, but noticeable.
I'll find a use for it somewhere I'm sure of it, but if your looking for a neutral …

Lipstick - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Lipstick in "Nostalgic"

Looks like a peachy-pink nude in the tube. Looks likes crap on the lips. One swipe and I knew this was not for me. Looks like concealer on the lips. To be fair, I have very pigmented lips, so I should have known better, but for a buck I gave it a try. I thought maybe I could use it to tone down some bright lipsticks I own, but it was no good for that either (too white based). I'll give it 2 …Read more

Love/Hate here. The lotion itself is devine! Smells great, sinks in fast and leaves a satin finish rather than a shiny mess. But I only use this on my hands, because I can't get the friggin lotion out of the bottle! It is soooo thick it will not pump out. After a few days of rangling with it, the pump stem broke into the bottle. The consistency of this lotion is like cold margerine. I would …Read more

Errrgg! I hate that I like this. All the cool kids are wearing it and I'm so not a cool kid. The bottle looks cheap and the name sucks. When someone asks me what I wearing, I actually lie and say it's VS Noir Tease cause I'm embarrassed to say Viva La "Juicy". I'm an older woman, and there is nothing juicy about me. I want to stop liking this, but it smells so dang …Read more

This is my ophthalmologists dream product because every time I've used it, I've poked myself in the eye. The wand is very cumbersome because of the weight distribution of the other tube. The product itself isn't horrible though....the waterproof side is indeed waterproof and nothing smudged or flaked. However, it's only good for about a week, then it dries up to nothing which …Read more
