I must agree with the previous reviewer. When I put this concealer under my eyes, I see tiny bumps and fine lines I never knew existed! I also purchased the concealer brush but I must be putting it on incorrectly since this product is so loved. I'll watch a few videos on application and update later. But for now, a bad review for revealing instead of concealing.

As a matter of fact, I can say cystic acne, which is what I walked away with after wearing this product for a few hours. I went to the MAC counter for a BB cream but the SA talked me into this one. I'm N7 with very oily skin, and I do not wear makeup. I thought it would be nice though to wear something light to even out my tone. A few hours later my skin looked as oily as oily can be!

I have to admit that I bought this product purely on the below review. I had purchased so many products to face dark spots on my skin left by acne -- everything from Dr. Brandt to Merle Normal to Oil of Olay. This product works and it's so cheap! It was difficult to find; no store had it so I got it online dirt cheap from some beauty supply store in Texas. I bought two since they were so …Read more

I'm a little annoyed by reviewers who warn people not to "waste their money" on a product, as if because it didn't work for them, it won't work for anyone else.


Aaaaaanyway, this product works well for me. I have oily oily oily oily oily skin. Had it ever since birth. I go through about 6-7 blotting sheets a day easily, until they are so shiny it looks …

Oh wow I love this perfume! I just got it today as a sample with my order from Sephora (I just got a Shu Uemura lash curler!) and I never thought that cedar would be so lovely! When I first sprayed it, it smelled like a freshly sharpened pencil. A few minutes later, oh, so very sexy and woodsy and sweet all at the same time. I normally like sweet scents like LUSH's Snow Fairy and Creamy …Read more

It's amusing how some people for whom this mask does not work come here to say that they've done so much research online and that this person and that person say it doesn't work, yet time after time women can't stop raving about it. So hey, I'll toot my own horn. I'm a PhD and I teach at a university and I LOVE the stuff. I've done my own research too and …Read more

FANTASTIC STUFF. More people should know about this! It dries in an instant! Not only that, but the gloss is HIGH SHINE. It almost looks like little puddles of pure clear mineral oil on each finger! I think this is the ONLY way I will ever keep a good manicure:


1) Put in the time to make a 'sticky sandwich' (basecoat, polish, basecoat, polish …

Top/Base Coats - Orly - Bonder Rubberized Basecoat

Sep/23/2008

I was lured by all the glowing reviews. I immediately ran out and bought the Bonder because my current basecoat was horrible. My nails would stain and there would be chipping in about 1 or 2 days.

I came home, tore open the box and gingerly applied this liquid gold. Then I applied Orly Glitz polish (see review, LOVE). I immediately got up to throw away my old base coat polish …

I can't imagine that no one has reviewed this product yet! This is the first time I have loved loved loved a nail polish color. I am tanned-skinned Black (Bobbi Brown Golden foundation) and this color looks so beautiful on me! It looks like melted, molten 24K gold on my toe tips.

The only thing I'm not too crazy about is the finish. It doesn't look sleek and high …

Garbage. The package said that you'll see results in 25 days. Its been 30 days now and there is no change in sight. I was very diligent about its application, twice a day every single day. In this month's O Magazine (Sept 2008) they talk about lash enhancing serums and many are mentioned but not this one. I'm going to invest in Enormous Lash instead.
