Love this concealer. I have tried the YSL, and this is a very good competitor. I definitely don't think the YSL price is justified for the product. Currently the on the Ulta website the Maybelline is $7.99 for .05oz (US measurements and currency, sorry I didn't get the grams), and on the Sephora website the YSL is .1 oz for $38. The equivalent amount in the Maybelline would be $16. So …Read more

So far so good. Seems to be a very good moisturizer for the money. Since the skin on my face is no different than the skin on my body I don'y see any reason to not use it on my face. I tested it with my favorite foundation- L'oreal true match-and it plays well, but have not tested it with sunscreen or tretinoin so I will need to report back. I can't imagine it will not play well …Read more

Never thought much about lip balm, just slapped on Whatever chapstick was handy and moved on, until this. Really like the scent and the feel, it lasts a long time and feels good on my lips. I usually use this at night but sometimes during the day. My lips stayed soft and hydrated even in the insane cold we just had. Chapstick now feels so gross on my lips compared to this. The shape of it is a …Read more

I got a deluxe sample of this free from Ulta. I really like it. I apply it with my finger and pat it under my eyes. It is just the right thickness for this application method, and my finger fits perfectly into the container without getting any stuck under my fingernails. It brightens and conceals my under eye, and does not cake up. I do not set it with powder because powder tends to emphasize my …Read more

I purchased the small travel size at Ulta to test this. I have dry, naturally graying hair that is medium coarse and tends to be frizzy without any product in it. I have hard water. I can usually go 3 days between shampoos. By the third shampoo with this product the buildup was so bad I had to wash my hair the next day with a clairifying shampoo. My hair looked limp and dingy. Sulfate free …Read more

Very good stuff. I never use waterproof, I just can't deal with the removal and want to keep my lashes TYVM, so a few tiny smudges are fine with me. Great color, length, fullness. Wand is perfect. My only problem is that it started to dry out fairly quickly. Like after a month. I had to use the old saline drops trick to get it non clumpy again. We'll see how long this tube lasts. I know …Read more

I got a sample of this from Sephora and have used it half a dozen times. The SA at Sephora was kind enough to fill the little sample cup up generously. A little goes a long way.
Sidebar here- I have to give kudos to the Sephora in Christiana Mall, DE for always being clean, well staffed and attentive on all of my visits. Staff is very well trained and professional, with every age, size …

I have ordered once from Hayward and have been very happy with my order. I got Guerlain Vol De Nuit, Guerlain Jicky, Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, Dior Poison, and Tom Ford Velvet Orchid. All were gorgeous, the Guerlains were particularly beautiful, my nose was glued to my wrist all day. I plan on ordering more.

Scent is very subjective, what is a dead ringer to one person is not to …

I have only used this 4 times, so this will be a "first impressions " type of review. I am older, and dry skinned, so had pretty much given up on any kind of setting/finishing powders because they just make me look like the crypt keeper. The whole "baking" thing was horrendous on me, and matte lipstick is a big no no as well. This powder looked really good, did not emphasize …Read more

First things first- In my opinion, this is NOT a dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. This is a very nice palette for a good price, but it does not perform anywhere near the same as the Hourglass product. I own both palettes and put both to the test, and the Hourglass gave a much more beautiful, ethereal glow. I searched high and low for a dupe for the HG palette, and tried many, many …Read more
