Where has this been all my life? I love this for bottom lashes. The brush is just right, and with two coats I get length and volume, especially length. It never flakes or smudges all day, and then comes off very easily at night with TTDO makeup remover. I am so pleasantly surprised. It's pretty inexpensive and small and easy to use. I highly recommend it.

This is a very nice highlighter and was recommended to me by several people. The compact is nice, and the brush is not bad. It is pretty finely milled and a bit shimmery rather than glowy. The only problem on me was that it is just too dark for my pale skin. I'm a little less than NC15 and this just showed up as too much darker than my skin. I prefer Armani's Fluid Sheer in #2. I …Read more

I got a generous sample of this from Sephora and have been using it for about 2 weeks. It's got sort of a mousse-like consistency and is nice and light. I have oily/combo skin and this works really well. It does seem to make my skin softer with daily use and I use it over Dr. Gross Ferulic Acid/Retinol Brightening Serum. I don't detect a scent, but there may be a slight one. I like …Read more

I'm about to turn 50 and have spent the last ten years trying a lot of different skincare products for age prevention, reduction of age spots and fine line reduction. My skin seems to do best with retinol and salicylic acid, but those can make it flaky and irritated. This is by far the most successful product I've tried. I had read about Azelaic Acid and how good it was for fading …Read more

This was not mattifying on me in any way. It made me oilier and greasier than ever. Granted, I do have oily.combo skin, but I expected this to at least not make me an oil field. It smells kind of like pickles, and was more moisturizing than I expected, but it certainly was not mattifying.

This product doesn't get great reviews, and I almost didn't try it. I got a generous sample of it at Bath & Body Works, and I used it for about 3 weeks. It has a beautifully creamy texture and works really well under makeup. After about two weeks, I seriously noticed a tremendous decrease in my fine lines under my eyes and crow's feet. I didn't know what to attribute …Read more

This has stood the test of time and become my favorite blush. It's what I wanted NARS Orgasm to be, but so much better. It's got nice pigmentation and a little shimmer. I have been using it for two years and I can't seem to hit pan, as much as I try. Unfortunately I believe they have discontinued it in favor of their new blush line. Fortunately, I bought a backup right before …Read more

Finally a spot corrector that actually works. I have been using this for two weeks and it has really made a difference in my dark spots. I have a lot of hereditary pigmentation and sun spots and I have been trying products to fade them for about four years. I tried lemon juice, Kate Somerville clinical dark spot corrector, Lancome Bright Expert, PTR De Spot, Philosophy Dark Spot Corrector …Read more

There is just something about Hemp Oil that is so soothing and healing. I've got my whole family hooked on this balm now. It's very moisturizing and treats/prevents chapping. I don't really notice a scent. When I use it overnight, my lips are in much softer condition in the morning when I get up. I even wear this over lipstick sometimes in the winter when things are really dry.

I can't believe this product doesn't get more attention. It's by far the best lip pencil I've used. It's kind of a nude/rose color that is neutral and blends with pretty much all of my lipsticks. I am NC15 and I use this almost every day. It is very smooth, easy to sharpen and applies very evenly. It holds a point well and has never broken. I have very little lip …Read more
