Not worth the hype. Not even close to worth the price. I tried this for years, it just doesn't work AND. It breaks me out. Nothing breaks me out but COCONUT OIL, the second ingredient (i believe). And the first ing. is mica. So if you're interested in this product get some coconut oil and cosmetic grade mica from tkbtrading(not affiliated). Nothing but a greasy type of glow (and …Read more

I shouldn't like ELDW. I'm normal to dry and prefer dewy finishes. But I got a sample of this because the counters are so good about giving out samples and everyone raves about it. First, the sample lasted me about 3 weeks. Amazing value for money, you only need a tiny amount of it. I got it in the shade 1n1. It's a decent shade match, it's not perfect. This however is not …Read more

So I have purchased gallons of this by now. I've used this at least 7 years, which shows how content I am with this cleanser. It does have an odd smell, you have to get used to it, but once you do, you don't even notice it. I usually do some oil and a makeup wipe first, then do an actual cleanse with this. I prefer the 32 oz pump bottle and refill with smaller bottles. The small bottle …Read more

This is a firmly decent foundation for generally good normal to dry skin that's well prepped. I have normal to dry skin and I prep with moisturizer ss and primer. It's not too glowy, I still add highlighter. I get medium coverage. I don't really think it's buildable, I think it would cake up too much. But it's nice and pretty cheap and has a pump. It did not break me out …Read more

This stuff is magic! I'm usually super skeptical, particularly of natural/botanical lines, but I am so impressed by this product. I got this in gratis (I work at sephora, but my opinions are my own). This does exactly what it says, it hydrates. Sounds simple enough, but so many hydrating products don't hydrate. I love chemical exfoliants and you must hydrate skin after doing chemical …Read more

Aug/17/2014

I've been using this for a while now. Not as a toner, because I see no need for toners. I use this as a skin refresher and finishing spray for makeup. I really like the scent now, when I first was using it I didn't love the scent. As for all the comments that use Paula's draconian "rules" as gospel, I simply think that her rules are extreme. That's like a doctor …Read more

I've bought 5 of these pencils so far. This is just the BEST blonde eyebrow pencil. I'm a natural blonde, with platinum blonde eyebrow hairs that are sparse. This adds a little color for depth and fills in the sparse areas, giving me a great shape. I think it's a great deal, because you get way more product than in the maybelline define a brow, which is the only pencil close to …Read more

Jul/07/2014

So really this product is not made for me, as I have normal to dry clear skin. However occasionally I will get one blemish. This stuff is amazing as a spot treatment or as an all over mask for the more oily or breakout prone folks. This mask has both clay to pull from the pores AND chemical exfoliants to help loosen the oil and dirt from the pores. I'm a huge believer in chemical exfoliants …Read more

Jul/07/2014

Disclaimer: I got this product in gratis because I work at sephora. I've been using it about once a week since February. I have normal to dry skin. This is a hydrating mask that you can sleep in or leave on and rinse off. I usually don't sleep in it, because I can't really sleep in any masks, I don't like the feeling of something on my face when I'm sleeping. I think this …Read more

I received this as a free birthday gift from Ulta, which I thought was generous. However, I've tried to work with this mascara for about three months and it doesn't work well for me. The most interesting part of the mascara is that the top of the wand handle twists, making the mascara bristles scrunch together. When the bristles are "scrunched", the small rubber bristles go in …Read more
