This blush gives a very nice soft pink flush. It has just a bit of shimmer, but not too much. Unlike some other Nars blushes, this one is hard to overdo, but my main beef with it is that it doesn't last - after a couple of hours it's gone. It also it's a bit chalky, like you are sweeping on not just pink, but whitish powder. It's best combined with other blushes to minimize …Read more

I was matched to Alaska, 2nd lightest shade. Usually I'm the 2nd lightest in color in most foundations, but this shade has a lot of yellow in it and is a bit too dark, despite the description of it having both yellow and pink tones and falling into neutral territory. Compared to LM which I have in Nude, Alaska is definitely more yellow when swatched on the wrist. Applied to the face you …Read more

You are not alone in your observations. I've been using this moisturizer for 7 years myself and loved it to pieces. It is different now. I kept searching the web to see if they did change it and that I'm not going crazy. The new formula is thicker and greasier, leaves the face not glowy, but oily, and I do have slightly dry skin. Why, oh why did they do it - the product was perfect...

Nothing special. Almost no volume, some length. Sticks lashes together if you try to apply more coats, makes them spikey. Big disappointment after reading such great reviews. Just an ordinary mascara in a nice packaging.

I have pigmented lips and this lipstick doesn't work for me - it turns an unflatering purple/berry color, which looks very unnatural, nothing close to the so called "bitten look". Even swiped lightly the color is quite vivid. The texture is nice. For a really nice red lip look I use armani's lipwax #4, patted gently with a finger and topped with korres Wild Rose lip balm …

Nothing special on my deeper pigmented lips. It actually takes out all their rosiness and it looks like i applied some lightly colored lip balm. I'm not fond of the taste either. Meh, very ordinary.

Absolutely beautiful. Enhances the lips, looks natural, but oh so fresh and polished. Great great color for all complexions. I'm not even a tremendous lipgloss fan, but this won me over immediately and i've been wearing it every day. It also seems to condition the lips, they look smooth, glossy, but not overly so, and healthy. Thanks for all the great reviews here, it didn't …Read more

It's an OK serum. It does make hair softer and changes it's texture and that's where I have a few misgivings about it, since i prefer my hair to have "a grip" and not be very silky ; soft, but not slippery. On occasion i do use about 1/3 of a penny amount on my ends, especially when the weather is humid and I want to avoid a scraggly/puffy end look (my hair is …

I don't think product was meant to be used all over the face. I have a generous sample of it in Bare radiance and like to apply it as a highligher over cheekbones, down the middle of nose-- anywhere where I want a bit of dewiness/shimmer. There are only 3 colors to choose from, which, in my mind, is a further indication that this is not to be used all over. Very nice product to add to …
