LOVE the product overall. The texture is creamy and glides on smoothly and leaves a sheen. It's moisturizing. The ingredients are great and mostly organic - it says "food grade" on the box. The first two ingredients are oils.

My only complaint about this specific color is that the description given by Bite for this color is "brick red." It is not even close to …

Just when I thought most PC products were a complete let-down in the anti-aging department, this product comes along! I actually bought this on a whim after seeing it on the website while shopping for her BHA treatment. I've always heard about the anti-aging effects of hyaluronic acid, but whenever I used an eye cream with this ingredient, it ended up making my skin look MORE dehydrated …Read more

This is one of the few MB products that I still buy after the big scandal that left me disillusioned with the brand. It has great ingredients and I see overnight results such as softened lines, increased smoothness, and overall improvement. I use a peanut-m&m-sized blob once daily at night under a moisturizer. The texture is somewhere between a serum and lotion. In my opinion, it is one of …Read more

I continue to be disappointed in Paula's moisturizers. Yes, I would say this is good for sensitive skin; however, the uniqueness stops there. It is just an average moisturizer and the claim that this 'reduces wrinkles on the face and eye area' I have found to be completely untrue. My face does not look hydrated at all when using this. I have dry skin and used this in the winter and …Read more

This review is for the pressed powder that comes in a compact.

I have finally found the perfect sheer powder! It makes my skin look so smooth and poreless and it truly lives up to its name. I wear this on a daily basis on bare skin with some concealer here and there and it's perfect for that purpose. It keeps my skin matte and it is long-wearing. It does not leave a whitish tint …

Feb/04/2015

I have been using an AHA cleanser a couple times a week for 3 years with great results and naturally thought that an AHA toner would work well for me also. Not so. I went through basically all of Paula's AHA toners as well as a couple others from different brands and all I got were breakouts and irritation. One day I started researching on Paula's website about the difference between …Read more

Feb/02/2015

The only product that has ever actually reduced my occasional cystic acne. I use it as a spot treatment and usually it will make an emerged cyst reduce by at least 40% overnight. There are times where I've had a cyst for literally weeks (and have forgotten about MB's buffering lotion because I don't use it that often) and then treat it with this product, and have it reduce …Read more

Jan/02/2015

Didn't think I'd be reviewing this so soon after starting it, but unfortunately I cannot take it anymore. I'll cut right to the chase. I took Viviscal Extra Strength for a little over 2 months total taking 2 pills a day - one in the AM after breakfast and one at night after dinner with water. I am discontinuing use because since starting Viviscal, my monthly cycle has been …Read more

Dec/09/2014

Sigh. I own many of Tarte's lip colors and when I tried Elite on at Sephora, I was instantly sold. This color is probably THE prettiest coral/pink color I've ever tried on. It's pretty much the perfect lip color for me (for reference, my skintone is NC45ish). The problem is, the color changes after an hour or less into a darker raspberry color which is sooo disappointing! It also …Read more

Oct/19/2014

This color is amazing for brown-skinned girls. I could easily wear this everyday as it is almost like an MLBB color for me, but just up a notch. It is a pink color with undertones of brown and a little bit of coral. The color is just dark enough to NOT wash out pigmented lips, and light enough to be on the brighter spectrum of lipsticks for girls with darker skin. It looks so natural and does not …Read more
