It definitely looks different on everyone, so if the color is your concern, you should stop reading these reviews and go check it out in a store.
I love it, I love the sleek packaging, I love the color, the formula, everything. Contrary to many people here, I wouldn't say it is drying or that it wears off quickly. It is rather moisturizing. And it's not the most long lasting …

It is the best mascara I have ever used or tried, hands down. Then again my go-to look isn't "high impact" it's a more natural look. It gives me the most natural full dark lashes. So I think maybe they named it wrong.
I put on one coat of this. If you don't see me put it on, you'll think I naturally have good lashes. No clumps, no sticking whatsoever. Separates …

It is not as pigmented as the black honey lipstick. Not that the lipstick itself is super pigmented though.
It looks nice, I'll give it that. Just a classy amount of shine with one swipe. But it really is sticky. It promises to be moisturizing, well, I wouldn't ever call a sticky gloss moisturizing. But it definitely is not drying. I won't buy it again because pretty as it …

They are good for applying liquid foundation, powder, even blush if you don't have an angled brush nearby. I also use them to soften anything that I realize I'm wearing excess of; from eyeshadow to lipstick to powder. It just takes the excess away without ruining the makeup.
But I want to make two points:
-they are not made to be washed and re-used. Especially if used damp …

Let me say that it will not work if you have super oily eyelids. It will work on moderately oily ones though.

I have moderately oily eyelids and this looks very drying at the time of application(it is not drying, just looks so matte), but at the end of the day, looks nice, not creased, not oily not dry either. Just great. I don't use it as a base under another eyeshadow, so I …

Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - anti blemish solutions spot treatment gel

This is a clear gel that comes in a 15 ml (0.5fl oz) plastic bottle. You can squeeze the product out like a tube so it's easy to control the amount you get.
It contains salicylic acid. It did absolutely nothing for me, so I consider it a waste of money. Doesn't diminish or even dry out blemishes a little bit. Doesn't reduce redness either(it claims that it does). But maybe my …

I have combination skin with very oily parts, acne prone parts and some dry patches.
I just purchased this. Overall impression from the first day:
-Removes face makeup really well. I mean foundation and setting powder and blush and stuff. It removed all those things in seconds. (other users say it stings eyes like hell so I didn't try to remove eye makeup with it)
-No …

Ladies, as much as we adore this heavenly smell, men tend to hate it, or be indifferent. Of the male friends and relatives I have consulted, not one of them described it as heavenly as I do.
Au contraire, women always love it, I lost count of the compliments I get from females when I wear this one.
You draw the conclusion yourselves :)

But seriously, my boyfriend made me …

PROs:
-smells really nice. a floral scent that most people seem to like, you don't get that often in fragrances. I haven't met a person who didn't like the smell. (either on me or themselves)
-usually AVON fragrances tend to smell differently than they do on the scented pages on the catalogue. And they tend to have a cheap chemical scent in the undernotes. Not this one …
