This was fun to wear under glittery shadows, but lately, I don't really feel like wearing those kinds since I sort of panic when I get glitter in my eyes now. Like, is glitter harmful? How much glitter have I ingested in my life? Does glitter cause cancer? Things you think about when you hit 34.

You know, I didn't find this to be very effective. I even used it with Nars shadow (the Narsissist shades). It felt like it wouldn't sink into my skin, or dry quickly enough. Maybe it was supposed to be that way? In any event, I thought something was wrong, so I never used it - or the shadows - again.

Maybe I would wear this on a no-makeup day so my lids can just have a finished look. For me, it was a little oily (though I have combination skin) and I had some transfer of eyeliner. Would not repurchase, though. My favorites are shadow insurance, Lorac eye primer, and Urban Decay primer potion - in order. If anyone would be interested.

This is the best. You get enough product and you have more control than you do the pomade. I like to use this with her brow gel, or if it's snowing/raining out, I use the nyx brow wax.

What's odd is that I've had mine for maybe two years and it's already kind of drying out. I don't usually leave it uncapped for that long. I'll double check the expiration date, it's just a little surprising. Honestly, I doubt anyone would use that much in 6 months... we'll see. If it IS expired, I wouldn't buy it again, I'd go back to her pencil.

It may be easier if this came in a squeeze bottle, but that's because the formula is quite thick. What I do is dab a bit on a beauty blender and sort of bludgeon myself with it, haha. If I use the actual applicator to apply it, what I get is more of a thick spread - which I know is the effect most people go for if they're contouring, but it's too heavy-handed for me. Regardless …Read more

It's not clear if it's unethical to give products negative reviews if I'm allergic to them... but here I am doing it anyway. Reacted poorly to this. I'm going to guess it's whatever almond deal is in it, or the c. alcohol.

This is definitely the strangest skincare product I ever bought - and I'm including the blue Cool Off stick from Milk that made my heart race (would Sephora take it back 6 months later? I got too scared to touch it.) What irks me is all the dimethicone it seems to have - that's the ingredient used in primers, which I'm not sure is used in ALL primers. I even tried to just use it …Read more

Well, I was allergic to this. However, objectively, it protects your skin while it's on. The texture is thick - but that's what an ointment is. If you have a pet, or if you wear something fuzzy, everything will stick to it. Unfortunately, I had to return it.
