Good, not great
I bought this in Org*sm, because how could I not? The color is great, very pigmented, blendable. It takes so little to get a good flush going that this product lasts FOREVER. That helps to justify the price. But the color doesn't quite match my skin as well as others have. Since it's so pricy and the formulation hasn't completely blown my mind, I won't be repurchasing in another color. I didn't think it this outperformed the Benefit blushes I usually use.

Destroyed my mouth
This toothpaste doesn't leave your mouth feeling fresh, like it doesn't have enough flavor or clean very well. I wouldn't know if it whitens because it tore apart my mouth and gums causing me sensitivity and shooting pain. I had never had problems with sensitivity before using this toothpaste and my mouth still hasn't fully recovered (over a year later). Do not buy.

Fresh and white
I received a tube of this to review. I often use whitening toothpastes but the only other "strong" one I've used was Crest 3D White and it destroyed my mouth and gums. Avoid that one! This Colgate caused me no increased sensitivity (which I'd never had at all before using the 3D White...). I've been using this twice daily for two weeks now and my teeth are definitely whiter. As the packaging promised, I did notice whitening within the first week. Best of all, this leaves your mouth feeling super clean and fresh. Would absolutely consider purchasing in the future.

I don't want to burst the cult favorite bubble, but this is not worth the money. I do like the feel and it removes makeup fairly well. That said, so does pure olive oil. I understand that plain olive oil won't rinse as cleanly as this does, but that hardly seems enough to account for the price difference. I don't feel like this is helping to remove "pore cloggers" more than any normal cleanser. Really, I think Clinique's Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser is more effective. I also think this, although not problematic for oily skin (like mine), is more suited to dry skin.

Great drugstore lotion. I put this on immediately after showering. It's thick but absorbs quickly. Although there is absolutely no residue left on skin, 24 hours later when I next shower I can feel that this lotion is still on. The scent is gentle and inoffensive. Not an aromatherapeutic experience, but this lotion is no frills and effective.

Concealer for teenagers
I had this for a while in high school. I think it was the first concealer I ever bought, which means it was also the first concealer I ever had settle into lines and dry patches under my eyes. I don't think I really had dark circles when I was 16, but this would not handle them. Formula is too sheer and, like I said, dries poorly on my eyes, creases everywhere. The cap busted on mine, cracked then fell apart, and that was the end of that.

Use mine often
I can French braid my own hair, yet I'm still terrible at making buns. These are so much easier for me to handle. They won't create perfect buns, just nice casual ones. I love that, since there's no hair tie involved, it doesn't pull so tightly that it gives you a headache or really any tension. But the hold is secure! I've worn only these on a four hour kayaking trip without problems. I also wore these on a run, mainly as an experiment. At the end of the run, the bun was lower on my head and not exactly pretty, but my hair was still pulled back. Buy some and play around. For the record, I have below my shoulders wavy hair with long layers.

Takes multiple tries just to get off MOST of my mascara, but I still wake up with gunk under my eyes. In the meantime, it makes my eyes sting. Cheaper products that work better: Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover, Pond's Cold Cream, plain olive oil...

Does the job
Removes eye makeup thoroughly and is expensive and easy to find. I haven't had any trouble with sensitivity or irritating my eyes. Even removes waterproof mascara easily!

I have this in the Translucent shade. Every day I just wash, moisturize, then buff this all over my face. It evens out your tone and coloring (redness is what I'm mainly combatting) but isn't obvious on your face at all. It also helps control oil. When I actually bother with foundation, which is very rarely, this is great for setting. I have sensitive skin and have broken out from using mineral makeup in the past, but this has given me no problems. I have already repurchased!
