I really liked this mascara when I first tried it because it provided lots of volume without clumping. I can build up multiple coats, and it still wouldn't clump or weigh down a curl. I have a few backups since it goes on sale pretty frequently. However, I won't be repurchasing this particular formulation anymore because I've noticed that it smudges at the end of a long day (10 hrs …Read more

I have this in the shade blackberry and love the color, but hate the formula. It's extremely watery, which makes it difficult to apply cleanly. I followed other people's advice and applied it to the inner portion of my lips and used my finger to smudge it out to the edges. I applied directly to clean lips, no lip balm or lip liner. It looked nice, even, and diffused. After an hour of …Read more

I only got to try this from a sample, but it performed terribly as a setting powder. It settled into my pores immediately so that I could see white polka dots where my pores are. I've never experienced this with any other setting powder. The shade was translucent, but it seemed to leave a white cast on my NC20, oily/combo skin.

I got a sample of this and tried it twice before throwing the rest of it out. It did remove my makeup (however, I do not use waterproof mascara), but leaves a thick, greasy film on your skin that does not rinse away. They recommend taking it off with a cleansing cloth, but (1) I don't like to manually exfoliate my skin on a daily basis and (2) I'm acne-prone and would have to use a …Read more

I am obsessed with this highlighter and also want to get a second as a backup. It leaves a gorgeous sheen without any glitter. One coat gives you a natural "is she wearing highligher or is that her skin?" look, or you can build it up to increase the glow. It is gorgeous and applies smoothly. Initially, because it was called a finishing powder, I applied it all over the face, and it was …Read more

TLDR: I like this more as an oil-controlling primer than as a sunscreen.

I've used this as a sunscreen a couple of times, using the recommended 1/4 teaspoon each time. It feels heavy, and there's a drag when I touch my face. I'm used to my Biore Watery Essence which feels like nothing on the skin. The Volition sunscreen takes a while to rub in, and gets gunked up in my …

Lip Gloss - TOM FORD - Liquid Patent Lip Lacquer

I have this in Red Corset. It has a somewhat chemical vanilla scent and is a bit sticky, but with high shine and color payoff. I would highly recommend using a lip pencil under this because as it wears off, it stains the lips, but mostly in the lip wrinkles. Since this is a red color, it looked my lips were cracked and bleeding. Not a good look. Staying power is about average for a gloss-type …Read more

I got this in the shade Pussycat. While I love the initial color, a cool-toned dusty pink, it dries down to a darker dusty rose shade. It's still nice, but not the color I wanted. It has a light vanilla scent, and the texture is smooth and easy to apply. While it is a matte liquid lipstick, it doesn't seem to dry down fully, so if I press my lips together, I can feel a little bit of …Read more

For me, this foundation was truly wonderful. It offered enough coverage to hide redness, but still looked natural and not heavy. I'd say the coverage is light to medium at best. My chin is like Teflon for most foundations, even the supposedly long-wear ones, but this one wears beautifully and does not separate or oxidize. I'm an NC25, and the cream shade works well for me. This is the …Read more

The first thing I noticed about this foundation was how skin-like and lightweight it was. It has a satin finish and looks and feels like you're not wearing any foundation. I'm an NC25 and shade III blends perfectly into my skin. I don't apply it all over my face; only to where I need it, and I can't tell where the foundation starts or ends. It has light coverage that can be …Read more
