Love the wand!
UPDATE: I had to lower the rating from 9 to 7 because after just three months, I noticed the mascara got thicker and gunky inside the tube (and I know I closed it well & I always kept it in a cool place) and it was difficult to apply. Something for L'OREAL to deal with. I normally use my mascaras for 6 months. It's still a nice product and I would buy it again for a cheaper price. // ORIGINAL REVIEW: Wow, am I surprised at this product! At first I thought it was going to be hard to work with the wand, but at some point it became very easy. Normally I would have hated having to "learn" to work with a product like a mascara, but I have learned to work fast with this one and did it because it's so easy to apply the product in the smallest of lashes, on the lower lashes and the inner and outer corners of my eyes. The product does separate and lengthens my naturally curled lashes without flattening them. I do not think they look thicker though. You do have to work fast with the wand, before the product sets or you can get a bit of clumping. I love love love how spiky my lashes get with this mascara. The formula is really good, they mean it with the no smudging or flaking claims, this last for hours. The price is average, same as other Loreal mascaras but come on guys, change the packaging. It looks so cheap. Great product, another great Loreal mascara.

Lightweight foundation with nice coverage
Update: I had to stop using it because it was oxidizing terribly on my skin. I also noticed the consistency changed after a few months, like the foundation separated into small solid parts and the liquid. I had to mixed it well to get an even texture. I always keep my makeup at a cool temp., so I don't know if this has happened to other people. Another thing is, it is making my skin terribly oily in summer. // Original Review: I was impressed by this foundation. I am not convince about the "minerals" on it, but my skin accepts it without breaking out or getting itchy. I have to say this is my first mineral foundation, I decided to try this because my drugstore was having one of those BOGO free sales and I noticed it didn't listed bismuth on the ingredients --my skin hates bismuth, so itchy! This applies easily on the skin, really soft and it provides a light to medium coverage (at least on my skin--I have combo/oily skin with some dark spots and freckles), but I can barely feel it on. It does a great job evening out the skin. It does a decent job with oily T-Zone, but I always have to blot around mid-day, so I don't care. The skin really looks soft after applying this. The only con I found is, this won't last too much. I would say 6 hours top in the high humid/temperatures environment I live. But that's about how long I use it so...

My go-to moisturizer for those terrible days...
I'm a 37 y/o teenager, meaning my skin seems to think it's still the '80s. I still have some horrible breakouts and this is the moisturizer I've been using lately during those terrible days. I discovered it by accident, I bought this first for my son who is starting to deal with acne. I tried it one day, I was kinda desperate, but I was surprised at how nice it felt. Smooth skin, not oily, my skin absorbed it really fast. I do tend to have dry cheeks, so I still used my regular hydrating moisturizer on top of this. So if you have dry skin, that can be an option. Great price for a nice amount of product. Very satisfied at the moment.

I only have to use TM because of this
I normally use full coverage foundation because I have dark brown spots on my face, mostly on my cheeks. But that changed the moment I tried this concealer. I have used many "full cover" concealers that are way too thick and cakey. Not this one! This concealer has a satin-y finish, it looks super natural on my skin. It is a bit thick (after all, it's designed for full coverage), but it does not settle on fine lines and you wouldn't notice it even if you were standing 1 inch from my face!! It can stands high temps and humidity, I've had applied this in the morning and it still good ~8hrs later. I use it on my lips, on top of my lipbalm, to erase my lips naturally dark pigmentation. I've been able to get lipsticks and lipglosses true shades very easy--a very hard task, I may add. Foundation, concealer and other "lip-eraser" products have not work me like this one has. A bit pricey, but a little goes a long way.

This was a terrible waste of money!
This products doesn't do anything it promises. Pure trash, errr, make that, pure expensive trash. Doesn't plum, wears off super fast and feeling (and smelling) it on your lips...yuck. Allure Awards? Must be a joke.

Use this for perfect lashes
Honestly, you could use the most awful mascara and when you comb your lashes with this brush...ta-da...no clumps and the product is evenly distributed. Works way better than a regular comb brush because the bristles are very close together and it is about the right size. And you could use this to apply your own personal shade of mascara (mix clear mascara with your favorite eyeshadow, pick up with this brush and apply!). A little pricey, but I worth every cent.

I really like this mascara. The wand, though small, is perfect for separating my lashes but provide volume at the same time. The application is very easy and the lashes remain soft. The only thing is, it smudges. I use it when I know I'm going to be on a cool environment. Otherwise...racoon eyes. Good, but I don't think I'll buy this again.

Really good quality
I love the range of colors MAC provides with these powder blushes. I use them to color my cheeks (duh!) and also to contour (Hello Emote Blush--love you!). I always finish the application with Fix+, just 1 spray and the look is perfect (specially if I overdid it and my cheeks are all powdery). I have mostly bought the ones for the blush palettes, so I can save space. Also, compared to other HE brands, these are not that pricey. Will buy again...and again.

I love this mascara, just wish it wouldn't make my lashes so hard, but it is nothing my good Neutrogena Oil-Free EyeMakeup Remover can't deal with. It does the job beautifully, no smudges or flaking and the wand makes the application really easy!. The packaging is a huge, but I don't mind. Really great product for the money you are paying.
