I recieved a mini-size of this in a regieme kit. My primary eye concern is dark circles and after using this for months there was no improvement. The skin around my eye area felt more moisturized but I can achieve the same result with any moisturizer. This is one of those products that didn't help matters but didn't hurt either. Because I'd rather use an eye cream that would …Read more

UDPP is one of my HG products and I've tried all the shades, Greed's the last one I got to. I was expecting pigmentation along the lines of Sin or Eden, instead it's like the clear base of the original with sparse gold sparkles throughout. Very sheer. It's so sheer that there's not really a point. All of the benefits of the original formula are there (no creasing …Read more

The mascara runs out of the top of the tube when I put the wand back, making this very wasteful. It's never been stored any way besides an upright position, so I dont know how to stop it from happening. It is waterproof, and does hold a curl although it droops slightly. The brush does not do my lashes any favors. It's very sparse and makes my lashes clump together, giving the appearance …Read more

Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Lengthening & Volumizing Waterproof Mascara

Doesn't hold a curl, isn't waterproof, isn't volumizing, and it clumps. It did add length so I guess it wasn't all bad. The amount of product is very small, around as much as a typical sample size. Not that I mind, because I'm looking forward to when this is used up and I can purchase a different mascara.

Was really underwhelmed with this. I would use at night and immediately after use my skin felt cleaner and softer, but after months of use in conjunction with other Korres products in the Pomegranate Regimine kit I noticed an overall increase in breakouts. I liked the idea of using more natural indredients on my skin, but unfortunately I don't think they were potent enough. This product in …Read more

The most difficult part of my cruelty-free transistion has been finding a good, inexpensive, w/p mascara. I typically purchase high-end products but mascara was always one item I purchased from the drugstore. Unfortunately most of the cruelty-free d/s brands don't make one, or if they do, it never seems to be carried in the store. (Or it's WnW and their w/p mascara was terrible). UD is …Read more

A fruity-floral that leans more on the floral side, with a strong rose note from opening to drydown. I don't usually like rose, with my chemistry it tends to smell overbearing and matronly, but with this it was well-balanced and fun. Wears well both day & night, and can go yearround. Lasts 4-5 hours which is better than a lot of recent perfumes. The only problem is I ran out of my bottle …Read more

I've been using this product for 2-3 months now and have noticed an overall increase in breakouts. It's not severe but it is noticably increased. It's a shame because when first applied this does mattify my skin and wear well under makeup. But I can't justify that day-to-day benefit (that a good setting powder can also provide) when the long-term result is more damaging to my …Read more

A light, sweet, berry fragrance. Despite that description it does not smell like Kool-Aid or Love Spell; it has a warmer, slightly floral tone to it to add some sophiscation. However, it's still a fairly straightforward sweet berry blend. Because it's so light and basic it's probably rare that anyone finds it overbearing or offensive, and it would be "safe" for …Read more

Being extremely fair-complected it can be difficult to find nude lipcolors for my skintone. Most nudes come out too brown or wash me out. Not this! It's the perfect peach-pink-beige mix. Pigmentation is great with just 1 coat. Being a pale matte color it highlights any flakiness so I moisturize very well before applying this. For being a matte it's not too drying. My favorite way to …Read more
