Worked amazingly well for me for 2-3 months. I followed the instructions and used it sparingly to spot treat and/or on small congested areas. Never used enough to experience the weird lathering effect so many describe, & only a few times a week so as not to overdo. My pores were tiny and clear as a bell. All of my concerns from small whiteheads to erupting pimples to painful cysts were …Read more

Best of The Day: A great warm rust/berry palette that is reminiscent of ABH's Modern Renaissance. If you can't or don't wanna purchase ABH, this is a solid smaller version. Lovely light shade for browbone and excellent contour shades.

Get Ready With Me: Excellent warm-leaning neutral eye palette. Shimmers aren't too frosty & and there is something here for every …

I will spare you, dear reader, and simply echo the majority of comments below. These are by far the most pigmented and buttery shadows I own. As a bonafide palette hoarder, I can honestly say that these are equal or superior to my other "best" HE eyeshadows: Viseart, Dior, Chanel. They are even silkier than the best of Urban Decay, more thoroughly opaque than the brightest of Kat Von D …Read more

OMGOODNESS this is amazing! I liked the original Pro-Matte fine, but it wasn't HG status. I already have 5-6 different foundations on my vanity, but for less than $10 (Hello CVS coupons and ExtraBucks) what the heck. I figured I'd try it and see. SO GOOD. Great shades, nice smooth finish, excellent lasting power. They managed to incorporate SPF 15, which is always better than nothing …Read more

I was stoked to get this palette because I find Jeffree's tutorials funny and his liquid lipsticks have performed very well for me. Got it from his website, shipping was fast and the product arrived well packed and in pristine condition. Like many reviewers here, I agree that this palette is just "meh". For the price point I expected more substantial packaging than cardboard …Read more

I was lucky/obsessed/diligent enough to get this from the VV website when it was restocked, they sell out fast. I love the variety of colors, the finishes are beautiful, and the quality is fantastic for the ORIGINAL price. I emphasize this because while these are good quality shadows, they are NOT worth the inflated prices being asked on Ebay or in various online makeup groups. The shadows wear …Read more

A Sephora sample gets me again! Enjoyed my mini-tube so much I took the plunge once the full size was offered as part of a package with deluxe skincare samples. Thrilled I went for it! Sometimes the quality from sample to full size involves a bait-and-switch but I was even more pleased with the full tube. Packaging is beautiful, brush is very nice, and this mascara hits all the bases nicely: …Read more

This was almost a total pass for me. No plans to buy it, but then I got it as a gift. WOW. That's it, that's all I've got. This palette is the bomb.com.

It is so wild to me how of all this year's hyped palettes, the one that seemed kinda "meh" and the least exotic or special of all would end up so often and widely debated, commented on, and opined about …

I love this set so much I bought a second one for my daughter! She lost her mind when she saw it. I have no issues with the pigmentation quality that others mentioned; of course I am the color of milk so everything shows up on me. My daughter, however has a Penelope Cruz type of complexion - these shadows show up just fine on her too. I agree all the shades are not as buttery as those in the …Read more

I cannot do better than a former reviewer who deemed this product "a hot mess". This gets all over everything, and is as flaky, messy, and disturbing as what I suspect is under Donald Trump's hair. It is more annoying than a yeast infection and harder to clean up after. Imagine someone blowing wet cigarette ash in your eyes and face and then telling you to "work with it …Read more
