This applies well, but it comes right off. I found it only lasted a couple of hours before I had scrubby bare patches across my cheeks, under my eyes, across my nose, around my mouth and chin. It wore horribly and looked terrible.

I tried this with both types of The Ordinary primer, an Inglot primer, and no primer. I tried it with setting spray and setting powder and no setting …

It's nothing special, but it also has no particular flaws, either. It goes into the skin quickly, but I have to resuse it within an hour or so as my cuticles feel dry again, so it doesn't have any good lasting impact. I noticed no improvement in my nails, but nothing got any worse, either.

It does not leave the skin greasy, it leaves no powdery residue, and it has a lovely …

My skin is fairly scarred from fighting and surgery, and this is one of the few things that can make those scars seem softer and lighter. It tingles, but not uncomfortably, and I've had comments from people that my skin is looking a lot better since picking up the Paula's Choice items as part of my routine.

It's a pretty heavy duty product, but if you need serious help …

Generally I love Paula's Choice. I've purchased about 20 items, and this is is the only one I haven't loved. It does not absorb into the skin. The moisture eventaully fades, but it leaves a gunky powder on the skin, which accumulates in the cuticles and under the nails, making me feel unclean and messy for hours. The only way to remove the white, powdery gunk is to wash this off as …Read more

These are lovely - I don't know why they are not a cult favourite yet! This is my favourite product of the year so far.

They feel amazing, the colour can be sheer or strong - utterly buildable. They moisturise the lips nicely and feel good going on.

One thing - they are $35 in stores in Australia, but only $10 inc postage on ebay from the US - shop wisely.

The contents of the tube fell out when I opened it the first time. The lipstick itself was damaged by moving around inside the tubing in the store. This is some seriously cheap and nasty packaging.

When I applied it, five minutes later I ate some grapes and this removed the lipstick entirely. I would expect some removal from eating oily food, but not from grapes.

A second …

The best liner I have ever used, hands down. They outlast everything, they have the ease of use of a texta (sharpie) pen, the have a good colour range, and they glide on so easily.

There is nothing to not to love about these except how difficult they are to find and buy.

The heads are double sided, and if you make a mistake they even have a little clean up pen you can …

This burned my skin horribly. I left it on for about 30 seconds when I couldn't stand the burning anymore. It's been six months, and I still have scars around my mouth from the burns. At the time, the burns covered my face (thankfully, only first degree), but the girl on the counter still refused to refund my money on the product. I wish I'd taken them to court for the damage …Read more

This was sold to me as a make up remover by Kit Cosmetics (as they don't sell a good make up remover). It does not remove make up. Three or four uses at a time and it will still leave traces of eye liner and eye shadow behind. I resorted to using olive oil as an emergency cleanser, then using this stuff to get the oil off.

It also flared up dermatitis around my eyes, so …
