The best lip gloss money can buy!
After searching for a long time for a lip product that doesn't dry out my lips and make me want to wipe it off after 5 minutes, I have struck gold. These glosses are incredible. They go on soft, smooth, and moist -- never sticky -- and keep my lips moist throughout the day. The pigmentation is beautiful -- not too shiny or glossy, more like a lipstick than a gloss -- and the staying power is incredible. I will never buy any other lip product again!!!

My HG Foundation!
After trying nearly every foundation on the market (it seemed) and finding that nothing could seem to control my extremely oily skin, I finally found my "Holy Grail." Every foundation I tried -- from drugstore to department store -- would turn dark and orangey as my skin became shinier as the day progressed. Enter this amazing product, that controls oil and shine, stays matte, and keeps its beautiful color even after a long day in the Houston heat. I have finally found my perfect match!

Good, But Not Worth The Price
This is a perfectly good mascara that provides good length and volume, but nothing extraordinary, and certainly not worth the high price tag. In my experience, most products from this brand are more style than substance, and this is no exception. The product itself is decent but not exceptional, and while the packaging and marketing are stylish and unique, none of it justifies the excessive price.

Very Good So Far
I've only tried the anti-redness primer so far, but I am very pleased with it. Unlike some green primers, it doesn't leave my skin with a greenish tint. Instead, it conceals the redness and leaves a nice, subtle glow. My foundation glides over it beautifully. I will definitely buy this again.

Yes, this mascara does provide a nice volumizing and lengthening effect, BUT it clumps badly and leaves my lashes looking like long, thick, dark spider legs. It also flakes, leaving little black specks on my cheeks. It also has a strange, vaguely-floral, vaguely-chemical odor that I can smell during the day. For $24.50, I expected a much better product. There are many drugstore mascaras that cost 1/4 as much as this and are way, way better. My advice: save your money!

The Best I Have Ever Tried
After suffering from a distressing bout of adult acne, I was left with an uneven, blotchy skin tone with a lot of redness and acne scarring. I then embarked on a quest to find a foundation that would conceal these newly-formed imperfections without giving me that "made up" look. After several expensive and frustrating "misses," I finally had a "hit" with this amazing foundation. It goes on smooth, provides subtle, flawless coverage, and evens out my skin tone. It doesn't even look like I'm wearing makeup. I use a makeup sponge to apply it and it blends flawlessly. It has a nice, fruity smell to it that makes it a pleasure to apply. It doesn't rub off on everything I touch, and it doesn't feel like I've got greasy makeup all over my face. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, no matter what the condition of your skin may be.

I tried several different shades of this foundation (by way of returning exchanging one after another at Walgreens) and each one was horrible. All of the shades, even the lighest ones, were still too dark for my skin and had an ugly brownish tint. One of the lighter shades looked semi-okay for about an hour but then started looking cakey and fake. I was thoroughly disappointed in this product, which is a shame, since I love a lot of Maybelline's products.

I got this with a mascara sampler set from Sephora. This mascara has very little effect on my lashes; it provides some lengthening effect but adds no volume at all. The brush does nothing to separate lashes during application. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this disappointing product.

Good drugstore option
This is a good mascara overall, though a bit expensive, I think, for a drugstore brand. Still, it provides very good coverage and good volumizing effect. Keep an eye out for coupons and you'll be able to get a good deal for a good product.

Best used along with a volumizing mascara
This mascara has an amazing curving effect, but not much in the way of volumizing or lengthening. It is best used as a top coat over top of a volumizing and/or lengthening mascara.
