I had used the Colorstay foundation for oily skin for many years and was happy with it. As my skin is aging, I recently bought the same foundation for dry skin. Big mistake. I break out like a teenager. It still has great coverage and coverage is buildable, when needed, but I can't use this foundation. The pump bottle is great. Sad to leave a negative review.

I like the brush, that's about it. It has an hourglass shape and is a regular bristled brush. The shape compliments the natural eye lash line. After only a few uses, it started getting clumpy. Not a good buy.

Horribly dry and grainy texture, and definitely does not last any better than your average lipstick. Definitely won't buy again. I had purchased the color Caramel.

This lipstick did not impress me. It is tacky after applying. It does have a nice, light strawberry scent to it. I applied it lightly after breakfast, had a cup of coffee, and the lipstick was on my cup instead of my lips. Ok, so I applied a little more, a little heavier after lunch and had a cup of tea. By the time. 4 hours later I looked in the mirror - no lipstick. My conclusion - 14 minute …Read more

This is a beautiful everyday eye shadow trio. There is a gentle shimmer to the colors, but they are not shiny or glittery. The colors are very neutral and soft and will complement any eye color. The pigmentation is great, but I have noticed, there is always quite a bit of fall-out with Wet'n'Wild shadows. For the price, it is still a great deal. The staying power is just as good as …Read more

I am from Europe and have straight auburn hair that has always been brittle and dry. Coloring it does not help, of course. Initially, I was looking for Washington's Carrot Seed Oil, but I could not find it. Then I saw this product on the shelf, and for the price it was not going to be a great loss, if it did not work for me.


I used it the evening before coloring my hair, by …

I love these colors, but they are darker and much more pigmented than I had anticipated. I have medium auburn hair, green eyes, and very light skin. Being in my mid-40s, this is more color than I will wear to work. The brow bone color will work for me during the day, and the eyelid colors will work for the crease and accenting, but the 4 darker colors will not.

Still I don't …

Jun/11/2011

After reading a lot of reviews on hair color, I decided to give this one a try. My reason for trying this one were the color results mentioned in several reviews. I hate nothing more than so-called auburns that turn burgundy or, even worse, purple. My color turned out very even and natural, but lighter than anticipated, lighter than pictured on the box. I have naturally light ash brown hair and …Read more

Skin - combination, sensitive, acne-prone.


My journey began with Bare Essentuals some years back. At first I thought it was great, but eventually realized that over time I would get these deep seated whiteheads from their foundation. And the color was never quite right, even when I mixed different foundation colors. Then I moved on to Every Day Minerals and used it for several …
