What I like most about their eye shadow singles is that it feels very smooth and silky when applied. I also like that each shade has its own mirror and applicator on the bottom. They have a great assortment of colors to choose from that complement each other. I have tried two colors from their Holiday 2009 collection, Gold Dust- a coppery color, and Champagne Citrine. These shadows are easy to blend and contain just the right amount of sparkle. To reduce the amount of creasing, I would also recommend primer. Since these are minerals, you could also apply these shadows wet (with a bit of water) to intensify the color.

Smells great but has a sticky residue
This body lotion is one of the first Mario Badescu products I have ever used. It has a great fruity fragrance made from papaya extract that feels light on your skin. This product is great for dry skin. It contains Alpha Hydroxy acids to improve skin texture and shea butter to moisturize. My skin feels soft after using this but I do not like that this lotion leaves a sticky film or residue. The sticky feeling is the reason why I avoid using this lotion on my hands. It takes a while for the lotion to absorb completely into your skin.

Great brush but needs softer bristles
This compact foundation is used alongside with their Chisel brush, made of a sturdy see-through plastic handle that can actually stand upright. All my other brushes just flop to the side when I place them in my brush holder. The width of the bristles on the brush is just the right size to evenly swirl across the compact. After getting the powder onto my brush, I gently buff into my skin. To remove excess powder that may appear on the top layer of the pressed foundation, dab a brush in short quick motions to let the bristles get the remaining powder. The only thing I wish this brush had is softer bristles!!

What makes this mascara truly unique is their brush! It combed my lashes individually and along with the formulation of the mascara, this new product made my eyes stand out. It is great to use to make yourself look awake- think 8 AM meetings on Monday mornings. It does take some time to learn how to use the wand right though. I had to give myself an extra 5-10 minutes to complete the application. (Had to be super careful!) I like that the mascara stays put and lasts long. It hardly gave me raccoon eyes or flakes at the end of the day.

What I like most about this pressed foundation is that the formulation combines 4 steps into 1. I like to do my makeup in less than 15 minutes so I like to use products that will save me time! Instead of having to use a concealer or a finishing powder separately, I can just use this one product. I received the right amount of coverage for my face overall, and I was also able to build the intensity when used directly to conceal blemishes and my under-eye circles. The finishing is also amazing and my skin looked polished and healthy.

A bit thin, but works very well!
The packaging makes the product easy to use. It reminds me of a Clorox wipes jar, so you just pull one towelette at time from the jar. The sheet itself is normal sized; it is large enough to clean your entire face and wipe all the makeup clean. After using, I could see my foundation and blush clearly on the cloth. So, it definitely works. I also tried to use it on my eye makeup and it also wiped my eyeshadow off. It did not irritate my sensitive skin and my face felt toned and fresh afterward. Some may think it is too thin, but that does not bother me.

Very cooling on eyes
This product is definitely soothing on my eyes. It feels like I have a cold compress on my eyes, which is great if you have puffy eyes. I felt the cooling effects immediately after application with this Eye Gel- which I love most about this eye gel. It's made of organic cucumbers, green tea, camomile and dead sea minerals. It is a clear see-through gel which feels light on your skin. It takes a while for your skin to absorb the gel so I recommend putting a thin layer. This product reminded me of the St. Ives Cucumber Eye & Stress Gel, which I believe is discontinued now.

Cleared up my acne
I have been using this serum for the past two weeks and it is working wonders. This product reduces the blemishes that I have. I had an area of acne along the side of my face and chin that I could not get rid of for the longest time. It has left scars and would not go away. After using this for a couple of days, I saw a major improvement. The blemishes are now gone and with continued use, my overall complexion has improved. All it took was a few dayâ€™s worth of applying the serum on my face overnight.

Leaves skin toned
This lotion came with my free consultation samples kit when I filled out Mario Badescu's survey. I really like this lotion a lot. I use this when my face feels like it needs to be washed but I don't want to over dry my skin. After I apply it on my face, it leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. I do not experience any tightness but the just washed feeling. It is cucumber based with soothes my skin. It is also supposed to clear acne, however I have not seen much of a change or difference. I still like using it to tone my face.

One of my favorite cleansers!!
This is a wonderful cleansing gel that really cleans my face without overdrying my skin. I have oily and sensitive skin, and with the heat in the summer, it is feeling more oily. The cleanser is gentle and has a nice soft scent. It creates a nice lather when using it so I do not even need to use more than a tiny amount. What I like most about this is that it does not leave any residue on my face and really cleans any face makeup that I have. It is important to use this gel with a cellulose sponge so I can exfoliate my face while cleansing.
