After years of devotion to Clinique DDM Gel, I have decided to switch to something that I don't need to use a separate sunblock with.
This came recommended by a friend, and after 3+ months, I'm really liking it. It's light feeling, sinks in quickly, and has not caused any breakouts on my acne prone skin. The scent is barely there and no burning from the fragrance.

The price is the biggest deterrent with this product. Sephora gets $29ish for 6.7 oz, which simply does not last if you're using it as an all over body cream.
That being said, I love this cream! It's lighter than most body butters, absorbs quickly, and turns even my scaly, eczema ridden, elbows soft. The smell is lovely, and somewhat invigorating when applied after my morning …

This is my everyday black eyeliner. It goes on easily and smoothly, has a nice deep black color, doesn't smudge at all if used with a primer, and is gentle enough to do my inner rims with. I also like the charcoal color to do my lower lids with, I can do a very fine line and the grey is much less harsh looking for daytime use! Overall a great product that I will continue to purchase.

I bought this in September for a hot and humid outdoor wedding, it lasted all through the ceremony, reception, and after party with no runs, streaks, or flakes! I then sort of forgot about it until I was cleaning out my makeup drawer. I gave it another try and yes, I really do like it. It goes on smooth with no clumps, has a nice rich black color, doesn't get "crunchy" even after …Read more

I have this in the 01 Rose Pink, which is "my lip color but better" on me. This is one of the few products that I use on an almost daily basis. It's quick, easy, and stays on under multiple swipes of lip balm (it's very dry here in the Winter). I find it quite easy to apply, the wand applicator has a fuzzy tip like a gloss so you can apply it the same way, wait a few seconds …Read more

I love the color and texture of this balm. It's moisturizing, but not at all sticky or waxy, and the soft, build-able color looks like I've been eating strawberries! So far I haven't had a problem with melting, like some others have mentioned, but I don't keep the tube in my pocket and it hasn't been super hot here yet. My only gripe is the price! $22 is a lot to pay …Read more

Nice cream light pink. Looks good against my pale skin, but I would imagine it would flatter most skin tones. As with all OPI polishes I love the wide brush, great for the 3 stroke method so no streaks. Dries fast. Good color payoff, but still somewhat sheer. The white of your nail can still be seen, it's kind of like a 1 step french manicure! Great neutral color for any season!

"This works, but it hurts. The snake venom stings. Get a plumper without snake venom"

I actually laughed out loud when I read this review. There is no "venom" in your lip venom ladies, just essential oils, mostly cinnamon, that "tingle", some say burn, the lips and stimulate the blood vessels so your lips appear a little fuller and rosier. That said, I …

I have had this for a while and have used it, but since I don't wear heavy eye makeup very often I didn't have a chance to really test this stuff till Halloween. I was doing a very frosty 80s inspired makeup look. Electric blue liner with a heavy frosted blue lid. This primer kept that crazy blue shadow and liner on and vibrant all night! Through drinking and dancing and sweating and …Read more

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

This is my Winter foundation. Even in Winter I am oily, but I also tend to get flakes with the drier air, and my usual mineral makeup looks awful. This liquid is just perfect, creamy enough that my flakies don't show and matte enough to control the oil for most of the day without blotting. I am a #25 Warm Ivory, at least in winter, which looks perfect on my pale to medium skin with pink …Read more
