I love this product! Bought after reading the reviews here and will never stray. Since I started using it nightly 2 months ago, my pores have become significantly smaller, my skin is much smoother and more even, and all dark marks have faded (it hasn't done such a great job on my red marks though).

When I initially tried this on my bare skin, nothing besides a little tingling …

Powder - Jane Cosmetics - Be Pure Mineral Makeup

Used this throughout the summer, and I feel a little lukewarm about this product. While I love the price, I didn't feel that this mineral foundation controlled oil very well or gave me enough coverage. Invariably, I ended up having to blot and reapply in the middle of the day, and using tinted moisturizer underneath to get the finish I wanted.

That being said, I did feel that …

I'd had this for a while, but never really used it, when I finally decided on a whim to try putting it in a spray bottle and spray it, as opposed to swabbing it onto my face with a cotton round, onto my face. And, huge difference! Before, I was indifferent. Didn't really feel like it made my skin clearer or more moisturized. But now, since I've been spraying it onto my face (and …Read more

Bought this based off reviews here when it was buy one get one free at Eckerd's...and while I'm fairly impressed with it, I don't think I'll be buying again.

Pros: Lash Out has a great brush that is fairly skinny, which makes it easy to reach corner lashes. The formula is pretty wet, and it gives good definition, with only some clumping. It does an ok job …

Love this product! I have thick, heavy asian hair and have been looking for ages for a product that will give some lift to my roots. Bought this after reading the reviews and have not been disappointed. The first time I used this, results were neglible; I was in a rush and didn't blow dry at the roots, and it left my hair a little sticky, and I thought, oh well. There's lift! Then, I …Read more

Everything I want to say has already been covered. Gorgeous, moisturizing, lasting, good-smelling and CHEAP. Creates the perfect, glossy nude lip for a miniscule price! My favorite lipgloss!

These are the best pencil liners ever! They glide on like butter, smudge almost never and the colors are true to form. Better yet, they even wash off easily, and (usually) don't need to be set with powder. When I'm not using my Fluidline, I'm using these babies (in Charcoal Brown and Suede). Dirt cheap and easy to find...go out and get one now!

Picked this up for $1 at Walgreens the other day on a whim in Champagne, and I can see myself using this pretty consistently in the future. I don't bother with the useless applicator; I've found the best way is just to squeeze some onto my finger and apply from there. The shadow works as a decent base shadow if applied sheerly. It is very glittery, but I think the neutral color tones …Read more

I'm torn on this. I really wanted to love this, but ultimately, I've come to conclude that this miracle product doesn't work for me. I faithfully mixed it into my facewash for 2 months --- pimples. I used it as deep cleaning mask --- pimples. I put it in my shampoo --- oily hair.

When it's really dry, I'll use this alone on my face as a moisturizer to mix …

Bought this product when Jane stuff was on sale at my local Walgreen's...and really like it! I use this as a highlighter on my cheekbones, and it looks very subtle and natural. Given my summer coloring (NC25), the shades don't really show up, but the glow is all I want anyway. The little brush in the compact sucks, but I love that there's a mirror. It also seems fairly packed …Read more
