I have super oily eyelids, so I can only use tubing mascara or I end up looking like a racoon. This is a pretty nice mascara, doesn't smudge, buildable, not clumpy and won't break the bank. I love the purple color, and the cobalt blue can be fun too. It removes easily with makeup remover, doesn't come out in tubes like Blinc or Loreal's. Unfortunately, it is not as waterproof …Read more

Decent coverage, bit the single shade is way too dark and orange. And at the end of the day, all the redness peaks thru, so not sure it is helping with that.

This is my favorite mascara. I have super oily lids, and also have to deal with pretty harsh weather during winter (watery eyes guaranteed). Most mascaras smudge like crazy on me, so I prefer tubing mascaras. This is slightly more cost effective than Blinc,and wears like iron. The packaging is unintrusive (has been redesigned, so now it is dark gray instead of gold), the skinny brush is …Read more

Decent waterproof mascara - easy to apply, compact enough packaging, straight forward brush, lashes turn out nicely defined and curved. But it smears. And it is a pain to remove. I'm not that happy about spending so much effort removing mascara when it smears!

However, it is one of the least smearing mascaras I've found, and I do like the packaging. So I might repurchase …

I love this foundation. Deauville is a perfect match to my NC20-25 skin. It does not oxidize. It does not feel tacky. It spreads very easily using a dense buffing brush, and it stays put. It does not go super oily on me, and does not need powder to set. My oily skin is usually a challenge, and eats foundation for breakfast, but this does last most of the work day for me.

I had to get the lightest shade, Ivory, and it looks spot on at first, but oxidizes to a darker shade. The finish is lovely, and looks beautiful initially, but doesn't last. My skin is super oily. I'm generally NC20-25 in winter, and NC25-30 in summer - this may be a better fit for summer skin, but I am not sure it will last long on hot weather.

I have so many of these lippies. I am a huge fan of the glosses - Kisser Slickers, Amplify Lip Glazes, Butter Creams, Lip Conditioners... They are moisturizing, have just enough color, and I can pull off most colors without looking washed out (just stay away of anything pastel because of my olive undertones). I love the slim packaging, I always carry a few around in my purse, and can apply …Read more

This is a review for the formula reintroduced on 2017. I never tried the original version, and I am usually weary of cream foundation because of my super oily acne ridden textured skin. The colors look scary orange in the pan, and I would have passed this over if I had not read a few reviews.

Cream Ivory matches well my NC20-25 skin. Not just matches well, it disappears on my skin. …
