At first I thought this was great - cheap, not too scented, not too "whitish" on my skin (which is: fair, a little sensitive).
Then it broke me out, and blocked my pores.
Sorry to write a neg review, but no no no. The tube I have left I may try as a sunblock on my arms and hope it doesn't do any damage there!

This is a great item! Thank you MUA for recommending it!!

I've been looking for a way of taming my brows for while. When I slicked my brows into place with vasoline, they looked right, the right shape, brow density --but they didn't stay in place like that. I didn't want to get into plucking them any further and risk getting that odd denuded look to the brow...so …

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Single Eye Shadow - Slate

Slate is a grayish taupe with a hint of mauve/plum. On me (light-skinned) it has a slight but definite satiny shimmer, so on me not actually matte. I use it as an understated crease color. The texture is great - silky, buttery soft- the color is highly pigmented. I know these things can vary from color to color within the same e/s make, but I do rate this NYX at least as high as my MAC e/s! …Read more

I really recommend this. No strong scent, and gentle on your eyes. I wear shadow, primer, sometimes kohl, but not mascara. I first tried the Loreal-alike that Walgreens does and I hated hated hated it - it smelled like it would strip paint from a barn door. Ponds by contrast is gentle and, short of a vegas showgirl, effective. I could see how much makeup came off on the cotton pad. Target …Read more

me: light skin, green eyes, lt brown fair. Slightish warm tone, I think..

Cork is great eyeshadow basic - a mid- golden brown that helps to contour the eye and draw out the eye color, at least with green eyes. You won't look esp. "madeup" with it, and if that's the effect you seek, and I do, Cork is def worth looking into. I use it in the crease with brule as an …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Hot Poppy Eye Kohl

Me: Fair skin, green eyes, lt brown hair.

Hot Poppy for me is a "Special Effect" color, a rusty, auburn brown with a high quotient of red in the mix. I supsect this is why it was discontinued - it could look "hayfever eyes" in photos, and that's one thing to guard against with using it. I use it lightly and make really sure the point is sharpened for …
