I initially purchased this is Warm Peach and found it a tad too dark. Purchased China Doll and now think maybe I should have gone with Blondie - my complexion looks incredibly washed out and dull in this shade (I've NEVER been able to get a foundation to match me... always too dark or too pink). Aside from that, gives decent coverage with an obviously matte finish. My skin is incredibly oily …Read more

Very excited to get this product, but I guess I had set my hopes way too high. I purchased it after making a switch to cruelty free products. First thing I noticed was how easily messy it gets; maybe I just got a dud but product spills out even when I close the lid shut. As for performance, I find that I have to use a lot of product to see a dramatic difference; I prefer to use it on days where …Read more

I've got the roll-on version. As an anti-perspirant this stuff is fantastic. I used to be that person that would sweat buckets but thankfully this really has helped. Unfortunately it doesn't help me with body odor, so I have a separate deodorant for that.

The positive reviews here made me purchase this blush, but I have to say I agree more with blog reviews saying this blush is dry and powdery to the touch. I find it incredibly difficult to swatch, which shows how chalky it is. I have a particular blush brush that I love to use for a sheer wash of color, but I can't use it with this one because although I can see product picked up on the …Read more

Bought it as a highlighter but it's incredibly chalky! Yes, it can be used as a highlight - it's definitely light enough. But it has so much kickback and can come off really patchy on the skin if you have a lot of texture.

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Liquid Eyeliner

Maybe it's just because I'm not a huge fan of eyeliners, but I don't enjoy using this product that much. First off, I find that the matte-ness takes away from the pigmentation a bit. It ends up looking more like those eyeliner stickers I see on Amazon. Secondly, the product is incredibly runny, so you have to wipe it down on the tube quite a bit before applying. I'm sure that …Read more

Feb/18/2017

I'm incredibly surprised with how much I am loving this product. I initially found it too ashy and dark for my light skin, but somehow I've started making it work really well. It does a nice job cancelling out my redness and even blurs my pores. I been using it under my mineral foundation and I can't believe how flawless it leaves me looking. The only reason I can't give it 5 …Read more

I'm acne prone and just recently decided to get myself into more organic/cruelty free makeup. I was really hesitant to try out a mineral foundation because I figured it wouldn't offer me enough coverage. Thankfully my skin has cleared up with the help of my dermatologist, and now I mainly deal with mild hyperpigmentation. I've been trying out this foundation for 2 weeks now and I …Read more

Feb/17/2017

As another review said, this oil did a great job making my eyebrows fuller, but it also broke me out. I started out applying it at night and sleeping on it. After a week I noticed about 4 pimples and even a large painful bump on my brows. I gave it up but wanted to give it another try when my brows cleared up, and this time only leaving it on for about 2-3 hours. I've been doing this for …Read more
