Works fine on my wp makeup, removes rather easily. I'd been using Sephora's waterproof dual for years with no problems but came across this for about half the price so decided to try. I've found a new remover. I usually use remover on a towel and rub then dry and this did a better job than Lancome and about the same job as the Sephora. For my needs, can't ask for much more.

Shu Basic was my HG for about six years before it was replaced by this; despite my assumption that it would be similar enough, I will be looking for a new mascara.
I can't put my finger on exactly what they changed (aside from the $.50 and packaging) but for me, it just doesn't work.

For someone looking for a natural-looking, relatively unflattering mascara which holds …

This didn't hold my curl but I'm used to Shu Basic. However, my mom used it without an eyelash curler and hers were curled and stayed as such. I guess she has a natural curl. But mine definitely sank as soon as I applied it.

That said, its finish is lovely and the application is very nice- excellent definition and separation, notable lengthening, no clumping, wore well …

beautiful. i'm very into highlighters, both of the liquid and powder variety, and this one is particularly soft and well-pigmented. a nice neutral champ without leaning too heavily into gold territory, yet still imparts a flattering warmth. (i am quite pale and if i apply it heavily, it can look a tad darker than my skintone but with normal application, this wouldn't happen and it is …Read more

quite chalky and hard. doesn't last very long (as far as hitting pan goes). a bit too yellow/golden for my taste- but really it's the chalkiness that does it in for me. the lack of quality here really has an impact.

color-treated hair- used to use the fekkai olive glossing, switched to this due to cost and it performs just as well. excellent for my personal hair type.

Ah, U.D., make this self-sharpening. A major downfall to an otherwise nice product. Probably closer to 3 lippies.

I like the natural color (Wallflower) and creaminess. I use l/l as an allover color so I like to blend it in and this blends well. But I've had it all of three days and the thing'll be gone within a couple weeks if I have to keep sharpening it into oblivion …

This seemed ideal. The thin texture and quick-drying qualities are things I look for in highlighters and it does indeed have decent (but not great) staying power. Certainly not all day on me. Plus, it does read a bit yellowy on my pale neutral skin.

Aside from the poor packaging which has caused product waste multiple times, this breaks me out. I react to Illa's blush too which …

This made a notable difference for me, paired with the shampoo. I bought the travel kit and have very long chem-treated hair and when I switched from my admittedly shabby routine to this one, it improved the softness, shine, and overall condition of my hair. I personally also enjoy the scent.

Of course I can't quite justify the cost given how much I end up using. Cosmetics, sure …

lovely product but broke me out. according to the sephora saleswoman, i'm not the only one who's had reactions to the line. that being said, it looks as though the illuminators do as well, so it's probably just something across the board.

otherwise, this is a warm pink that looks like a peachy-pink on my arm (i'd be paler than a nc15ish, iirc) but registered a bit …
