I use it for daily wear. Perfect colour for my skin and great light coverage. I don't look like I'm wearing a halloween mask. Looks very natural, blurs and evens colour - but not to the point I need to contour and put on blush. I have decent skin and I just don't care about a few small flaws. Doesn't give me a rash, goes on quick with fingers, no streaking.

I had a sephora consultant give me a skin care treatment with this in store first before buying. Cause it's sephora, and you can ask that ;)
It is NOT a moisturiser. She told me to use it before a moisturiser, wait 10 min for it to absorb, then apply a good moisturiser as my skin is normal-dry (I have FAB's ultra repair *face* moisturiser a lighter consistency than their body …

Jun/08/2018

I bought a travel sample set of IT Bye Bye under eye concealers at Sephora and a little travel sized version of eye cream came with it. I have fairly deep hollows, dark circles (accentuated from the shadow of the hollow) and lines under my eyes, plus since hitting perimenopause, my eyelids have dropped and have become hooded within one year.
So, I decided why not, sure.
When I first …

I have incredibly sensitive eyes and was really pleased this pleased it didn't make my eyes run or give my sensitive skin a rash.
It's also so thick you could probably spackle all the walls of your house with it.
It gave full coverage, after I put on some colour corrector. It gives way better coverage than any other concealer I've had and the travel tube will probably …

It's really, really lengthening. I loved the results. but when I put it on, even very carefully, with hand mirror below, eyes down, ziggging up, slowly... it's so wet I'd always get some on my eyeshadow and have to do repair work. :(

Little pricey for what it was.
I love mood lipgloss and lipsticks - I had toofaced's mood lip glosses about 8 or so years ago and they were sticky but fun.
I have Angel Tears and Unicorn Tears lipstick and they both perform the same: blotchy and uneven. Even when I pre-moisturise my lips, it goes on very uneven: heavy blobs of colour then streaks of sheer undercoat.
I was …

Lengthens well, thickens, and definitely lifts without me needing to use a curler. I use it as a quick mascara. One coat does a great job and doesn't make my eyes water. More than one coat and my eyes stream luckily one coat is great.
In Canada it's a mid-range price mascara.
If I'm wanting a night glam look I use my eyelash curler and a different mascara I can layer …

I keep looking for better and better lip glosses for colour and staying power. So far, this has surpassed lip glass by MAC. It has the longest staying power of any lip gloss I've used and although thick and very moisturising (perfect for winter or summer dry lips) it is not sticky! I have three shades - a light pink, a pale plum and the deep red, all with glitter. the opalescence in all …Read more

EDIT: very disapointed. It went clumpy after three weeks. I'm finding this very irritating with mascaras these days. I used to be able to buy mascara that would last 6 months without clumping but it seems no matter what I buy, it goes clumpy within a month.

exactly what I wanted from a mascara: lengthens like mad. It adds fibers onto the tips of my lashes and looks like I've …
