I don't understand the people who are turned off by the jar and claiming there is a problem with hygiene. You simply wash your hands and make sure you scoop out the appropriate amount you need. Use that and you're done.
Not much else to add. I think people judge this product unfairly due to a simple technique to improve hygiene. Great product. Works for me and gives me zero …

I really should only be giving this 3 lippies but I'm so impressed with how it makes me look that I have to give 4.

The good: Goes on wonderfully with just my fingertips. No brushes needed. The bottle is small and pump is convenient and clean. No mess! The color matches my skin wonderfully. Whenever I wear this I get multiple compliments on how amazing my skin looks. People …

Unless you get some makeup remover and scrub...this lipstick ain't comin' off. I was playing around with the Enduring Ruby (a gorgeous blue based red) around 6pm. Ate dinner, took a shower (I didn't wash my face), went to bed and woke up the next morning and startled myself in the bathroom mirror. It looked as if I had just put on lipstick. I really can't comprehend how …Read more

I've given this a couple of tries over the years and I always get the same results - blah.
First of all - it's really difficult for me to even get any product on the blush brush, no matter how hard I try. It's like it's a super pressed powder. I also can't stand the NARS rubbery packaging. It looks super cute and chic when it's new but after awhile the …

Can I live without this product? Yes. Do I want to? Heck no!

I bought this on a Sephora buying spree. I wanted something to set my makeup but I found the usual "setters" to be really drying. The SA rep pointed me to Dew Me (no, the fiance does NOT like it displayed on our vanity countertop in the bathroom.)

It keeps my powder foundation set alllll day and …

What does toner do? Do we really need this stuff? I asked the SA at Kiehls what toner was used for and why everyone likes it and all he and the other SA could tell me was that it "tones" the face and deep cleans it.

Um. Well I wash my face and if I need it extra super duper washed I used my Clarisonic. Why do I need toner? They couldn't tell me. It came with a …

Eh. It's your run of the mill basic moisturizer. Comparable to Cetaphil but I like the ingredients in this better. It's sort of expensive for what you're getting and I absolutely cannot use this before I put makeup on. Even if I wait for the moisturizer to absorb my makeup still balls up like bits of eraser. Ick.

I use this as a backup when I've run out of my …

First off - this stuff smells AMAZING. It actually smells delicious. I love putting it on my face in the morning because it really gives me a jolt. The smell is strong, though, so if you're not a fan of the scent it might turn you off.

Moisturizing is good - not phenomenal -which is why I took off one lippie. It won't cut it for my dry skin in the winter but it is just …

When spring/summer hits - I don't wear anything but this on the nails and toes! It came out last spring and I've been hooked ever since. The perfect pastel, yet semi-bright blue that looks good when my hands are ghost-white pale or dark from my summer tan.

I get constant compliments when I wear this. Great polish color!

Ummmm are we being serious here? This waxy lip balm is so overpriced I can't believe it sells as much as it does. Is this one of those gigs where people buy it because it's expensive and that's the appeal?

It makes my lips peel and dry out, if I somehow make the mistake of licking my lips and taste this it makes my tongue go numb and the taste is awful, though this …
