I own both naked 1 and 2, but wanted something with more matte options and that I could travel with. The African violet really appealed to me so I decided I'd give it a shot. When i received it i immediately fell in love with the packaging. Unfortunately half the shades didn't even show up on me, no matter how much color I packed on. Ended up returning it.

I picked this up from Sephora a year ago, tried it once and hated it. I thought it was too greasy for me. It's been sitting on my shelf unused since.
Fast forward a year.
I was recently prescribed retin-A, and my skin went berserk. It's been dry, flakey and I recently started purging. I am determined to stick with the regimen though, so I armed myself with gentler skincare …

If you have oily/combination skin and you're a POC who wants to get in on the BB trend, you can wear this but you NEED primer. This will not give you a matte finish but rather a more natural dewy look.
I bought this off ebay in shade #31. It's a perfect match for my NC 40/42 skin. This is the only matching BB I've found other than Smashbox's BB in medium. I got 50 ml for …

Would I buy this product again? YES YES A THOUSAND TIMES YES.
Now that the shouting portion of this review is over, let's start with the reviewing.
I've never really used vaseline outside of a last-resort lip balm until about a month ago. I was dealing with dry patches in spite of applying tons of moisturizer, and I wanted something that wouldn't let my face feel all …

I'm a MUFE 153 (somewhere between nc40/42) and I picked up this product in the medium shade to see what all the bb hype was about. I felt it was overpriced at $39, but I had a coupon and some stuff to return at Sephora so I ended up paying $24 which wasn't too bad.
I have combination skin with oily and dry patches, and I found the texture of this BB to be a bit too dry out the …

Glide it on, let it dry for a few minutes and then lightly blot, and you're left with creamy matte lips with color that refuses to budge. I'm not a fan of the doe-foot applicator because it dispenses a lot more product than I need in one application, but refuse to take off any lippies for it because this stuff looks and wears great. It's creamy and rich.
I usually buy much …

The color is gorgeous, and very matte. The price, at $4.99 from Target is ultra reasonable
It would be nice if I could actually get a bit of it to get on to my brush- or even my finger. When I ran my finger over it, once gently, and then with a little more force, I couldn't get even a little color off the pan. I am very disappointed with this product.

Jun/16/2011

There are very few moisturizers that I can use daily without breaking out, and they're all oil free. Heavier night creams simply do not agree with me. Unfortunately, I also suffer from dry patches, and that's where the Jojoba oil comes in. I use it with my regular Neutrogena Oil-free Moisturizer for Comination skin every evening after I shower. About 4-5 drops of Jojoba oil mixed into …Read more

My daily clarisonic use, combined with the fact that I have started using retinol-based products had left me with some very dry patches. I decided to give this mask a shot, and have not been disappointed yet.
I've been using it once a week for 3 weeks now, and I am very pleased with the results. My skin feels and looks very dewy in the days after application, although there is some …

I had just started using a brand new sensitive brush-head when I came across the the deep pore version. I bought it on a whim, because my skin has never behaved well during summer, and I figured it couldn't hurt to try.
Once I started using this version, I just couldn't go back to the sensitive. I found this one to be easier on my skin, the bristles feel a lot softer and it just …
