This is very a very effective and luxurious way to remove your makeup. You just know you are pampering your skin when you use it. Unfortunately, it is expensive, so I tried to use regular olive oil to remove my makeup and it was very sticky. It didn't wash off like this product. Now I use baby wipes because they are cheaper. I will buy this again when it is on sale.

This is the only product that significantly decreased my husband's dandruff and my dandruff. I hope they never stop selling it!

I have tried Neutragena T-Gel, Head n' Shoulders, shampoos with sulfur, natural shampoos with tea tree oil and/or rosemary oil, treatments, anti-fungal supplements, etc. Nothing else worked at all compared to this shampoo.

Love it, love …

I am thrilled that I bought these instead of MAC brushes. I have felt and tested the MAC brushes at the counter enough to know that Sigma brushes are just as soft at a fraction of the price. I highly doubt I will need to buy many more brushes for some time.

A few things that I wish were better: The bristles tend to have a little fall out from time to time. Also, the 224 has lost some …

I have this in 506, or plumed mauve.

Pigmentation: 8/10
Lasting Power: 8/10
Applicator: 9/10
Smell: 3/10 Smells like nail polish. Yuck.
Texture: 4/10 Fells kinda like nail polish.
Moisturizing: 3/10
Plumping: 1/10 Does not plump at all.

Altogether, not my favorite. Has some very good aspects, but mostly not my cup of tea. Wish I did not buy two …

Worst mascara I have tried. Stila and MAC are usually my favorite brands but I do not like their mascaras. Does not define, lengthen, or add volume. It does darken a little but it also clumps and flakes a lot. Not going to repurchase. I wonder why drugstore brands of mascara often seem to work way better than the higher end mascaras.

This is the best mascara I have tried so far. Does it lengthen? No. Does it curl? A little bit, but not very much. Does it add volume? Just a little bit, but not very much. Does it flake? No, not really, I have experienced a couple tiny flakes, but nothing too bad. Does it get runny and give you raccoon eyes? No.

I will tell you what it does do. It darkens and defines your lashes. That …

The best mineral foundation I have ever tried. And I did not like the original formula because it made my skin itch and gave my skin that eerie glow. This one is sooo good I will be willing to splurge now and than on it when I have extra dough, but in between I will be using up my everyday minerals. Very matte without looking dry or cakey. Sheer to medium-full coverage. Definitely able to to …Read more

I am surprised at some of the good reviews. I usually love Stila but this concealer is dry, cakey, and does not blend well. It also settles into my wrinkles under my eyes. All in alll, a waste of money.
