YES! This stuff works for me! The wand pulls out very creamy and I have to swipe off the excess, but still a very light hand quickly covers all lashes. I am using with Maybelline Pumped Up Collassal, and this combination renders me sexy, doe-eyed Diana Ross eyes-enhances both volume and lift. The formula is looser and the wand carries more product than L'ancome, but if you are careful to …Read more

Cleansers - Boots - No 7 Beautiful Skin- Melting Gel Cleanser Normal/Dry

May/28/2013

Well I guess I am not alone when I say that this wacky winter and cold spring has done a number on my skin and unfortunately, they also coincided with the disastrous reformulations of my HG facial product line Beyond Belief Vita C+. I have spent a pretty penny buying and returning products over the past few months trying to find a replacement moisturizer and cleanser, and through it all the …Read more

Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - Youth Code Day/Night Cream

Pretty basic moisturizer, no frills. Would be very happy if it cost $10 less :-) Feels good absorbing into skin and dries to a matte, almost powdery finish. I used this only as a day lotion and it kept my skin feeling moisturized all day, which is the main characteristic I was looking for. However with continued use, my pores began to look clogged after applying, altough think it may have been in …Read more

This has a slightly soapy feeling, and seemed to clean well with beginning use. After a few more usesmy skin felt a bit dry after rinsing, and pores look a bit clogged. I continue to try the cleanser and day/night moisturizer for about 2 months, to no avail. Unfortunately, this line did not work for my skin, and it left residue and clogged my pores.

Unfortunately, this color looks like thick cement on my hands and is not flattering. I was hoping this would be close to what Au Natural used to be, but this is more opaque.

The first time I wore this about 4 years ago, a male friend complimented me on how radiant I looked, so I knew it was a keeper :-). Back then I wore it all over and as soon as I applied it as a finishing touch over my makeup, I would notice an instant warming and evening of my skin, and it even made me say under my breath “whoa”. I don’t know any special bronzing techniques, so I would just tap …Read more

Moisturizers - Beyond Belief - VitaC+ Night Moisturizer

Dec/17/2012

This is a rich and dense moisturizer, more emollient than the day crème, with a soft orangescicle scent. This worked well when I was using the entire vita C+ line, then I switched over to the Natural Focus line after a few years when my skin began feeling drier. I have recently returned to using this as my single day and night moisturizer in conjuction with items from the Natural Focus line. I …Read more

When I first began to use this product I was dismayed at how it beaded up on my skin and banished it to the closet for a while. After a few months I pulled it back out and began to use again. I’ve noticed that with regular use the beading diminishes. When I awake some mornings my skin sometimes feels a bit tight.This isn’t the best item in the line, but I think it does work its purpose. It feels …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Beyond Belief - Natural Focus Brightening Serum

1.0

Nov/14/2012

I noticed nothing. The only brightening effect came from a whitish cast from residue. The contents also seperated within the tube and I always had to remember to gently massage the tube before opening, or I would get a squirt of clear liquid instead of the complete product. Product beaded up around eyes and hard to remove.

I spotted this out of the corner of my eye in Ulta and was going to cry if I did not leave with. It looked like Autumn in a bottle, a russet and gold shimmering chromatic jubille. When I began my manicure I applied to my left thumb and my enchanted bubble immediately burst. It was just a purplish garnett with a slight, well behaved shimmer and I couldn’t detect the awesome chrome effect that was …Read more
