Shame on you Maybelline-for changing an already nice product into something crappy!!

I have been using long-lasting lippies practically since their inception, and have tried them all. I finally settled on Maybelline Superstay and even had 3 HG colors which I repurchased many times. Then suddenly, Maybelline decide to change it; in a bad way.

The applicator is terrible, the …

I want everyone to at least try this!! Yes-there are only 4 colors, and yes-there is a slight fragrance, but the coverage and finish of this is like NO other foundation I have ever used! I consider myself NC25 and Beige is spot on-just like my own skin. It is a true olive/beige.

It lasts all day on me without powder or primer. I have acne-prone skin that is on the dry side this …

I gotta hand it to MUA-only MUA could make me drive 30 miles out of my way after searching high and low in my local area, and already having a HG Foundation-MUFE Face&Body. Plus, I already knew that the ingredient list is a disaster waiting to happen for an acne-prone like me. Oh well, maybe I can lend some insight and save some others the trouble.

First off , choosing a color is a …

First off-I never thought I would want a Flat Iron, However, the craze on the hair board during Sephora F&F made me do it, so I actually bought this at a great discount.

I have naturally curly hair that has a mind of its own, especially when there is any drop of moisturie in the air. I use this to smooth and curl my hair into big ringlets. The style lasts through anything-even …

Love this! Have been using it now for several months. I have very acne-prone, sensitive, finiscky skin, and use Rx Retinoids. I use this to remove my makeup and sunscreen. I don't even follow up with another cleanser, but YMMV. I massage it on dry skin, let it sit a bit, then use a warm baby wascloth to remove everything. My pores are cleaner, skin is smoother, softer, and less irritated …Read more

This is IT!! The One!!! I love it. It blends on like a dream, looks natural, stays put through sweat/excercise/humidity! Covers acne marks like nobody's business. It is expensive, but not when compared to the likes of Cle De Peau, which is almost 3 times the price, and is far superior in lasting performance. The fact that it is waterproof is the biggest attraction for me. There may be other …Read more

This product saved me from having my eyebrows permanently tatooed.
Let me start by saying that I have very dark, thick brows, but there is a spot on one of them that is very bare. I have used the Chanel Brow Sculpting Pencil (Blonde Cendre) for years, and it was really great, but not sweat resistant. This won't do for me.

I decided to try this product because everything I …

This is, by far, the best self-tanner for arms and legs that I have ever used.
Builds color gradually, which is why I think there is no streaking or orangeness. I shave with the Mac III, then apply this to legs. No stinging or irritation either, which I am very prone to with most moisturizers.
I would suggest getting the Medium, unless you are Nicole Kidman white.
It took about 5 …

Although I choose to wear Mineral Makeup on a daily basis, this is my foundation of choice for special events and having pictures taken. It just makes my skin look like a dream, without being heavy or cakey. And the best part, it stays put, in a good way! I have even worn it through excercise/sweating to put it to the test.

The only complaint I have is the bottle/jar opening is too …

This is, by far, the best long-lasting lip stain product of this type. It goes on smooth, stays put without flaking (unlike Covergirl Outlast and MF Infinity). I can also use my Lipfusion over it during the day, and it stays put. For me, it comes off easily with the Lancome Eyemakeup remover.
I have it in Rose, a medium-toned, nice daytime, toned down pink, and Raisin, a more dramatic …
