light colors are great!
I have two of these, one is white with pink undertones, and one is white with gold undertones. They are both great. They add light to the eyes and are quite noticeable yet easy to apply and blend. I like to put them in the inner corners of my lids. I am not sure how darker colors would be, I was scared to buy them because they seemed like the may be hard to blend, I might try one day, when there is a good sale, and I will update the review then, I definitely recommend the light colors for now :)

this is a good moisturizer and every day sunscreen. It is somewhat greasy but does well under foundation and some powder. I enjoyed using it. I cannot really say I noticed anti-aging qualities, but my skin was well moisturized. I wish the bottle was recyclable though, there is no information about it, so I don't think it is. Contains filters that brought up some controversies about creating free radicals when exposed to sun, so I would say this, along with the relative greasiness would be the main cones.

too hard, does not belnd well on skin, looks patchy and becomes more orange
I am not sure why all the positive results. Maybe this makeup is just not good for me (skin on the oily side and I use a lot of sunscreen). This makeup was hard to apply: it was hard like a stone and became harder with time. Moreover, it was really difficult to blend it, it did not sink into my skin well. Also, it would adhere strangely to my skin, some places would be to thick and too orange, while other places it would not stick to (again, maybe it is cause of sunscreen?) I love Clinique but I will never buy this product again.

good for body, not for face. 70 and 85 leave white residue.
I love these sunblocks, and most often I use SPF 55 one. It goes on sheer, absorbs nicely into skin. I get excellent protection. I read in magazines and on websites that many people put this product on their faces, so I tried it as well, since I am always looking for a good face sunscreen. Unfortunately, it really itched and irritated skin on my face, which does not get easily irritated, I might add. I use it only for my body now. Also, higher spfs are harder to distribute on the skin and they leave white smudges. Too bad, cause the higher protection, the better. Overall, good products for the price. I really trust Neutrogena with their sunscreen, especially with UVA protection. I hope I am not mistaken! edit: I lowered my ratings since it has been harder to distribute this sunscreen on my skin without white smudges. People come up to me and ask me what is this white stuff on my skin. I know I am generous with application, but with sunscreen, we should be :)

separates even after it's few months old
this is a pretty good sunscreen but one thing makes me rate it so low: it acts like it is expired even couple months after purchasing - the cream separates from the oil. I read that this means that sunscreen is no longer good. I had couple of bottles of this sunscreen and it happened to both of them after two months, so I don't think it is a coincidence. I think sunscreen should stay intact for at least 6 months after purchase? I will not buy this one again.

good quality, but chips faster then OPI
this is definitely a good nail polish. It is easy to apply and does not get thick too soon. The bottle is solid and easy to open. I like Nicole's fun colors. I have Dream Catcher and Star of the Party which always gets compliments :) this polish dries fast. I also like the brush, which deposits perfect amount of color. The main downside is lack of long-lasting qualities. This polish can chip even after a day, in contrast to OPI which can stay intact or days. Nicole is worth a try... if you have a coupon ;)

colorstay? not on me...
I have color 09 Sterling Rose. I have to admit, lighter colors are really pretty. They are a little bit shimmery but very delicate. What disqualifies this quad for me is the darkest shade: very dark gray, almost black. I put a tiny amount of it on my lash line. Towards the end of the day, I see the color migrating all over my eye socket, emphasizing fine lines and making me look sloppy (even when I am very stingy with application!). Heroine chick is not the look I am going for, I probably will not repurchase.

This product is not expensive and definitely worth a try. The color is quite strong, but not too much for me, so I use it like a marker. Thanks to pointy tip you can almost use it like a lip liner and create more definition than with regular lip color. Color is pretty and long-lasting. It stays on the lips at least twice as long as regular lipstick. It is necessary to put a lip balm or a lip gloss over it though, By itself, it can be a bit drying and lips don't look that attractive.

it's like using NOTHING
... and paying for nothing ;) I am surprised this product has so many great reviews here. I tried to like it and used with multiple lipsticks but the result is always the same. Nothing. I used with red lipstick and it still bleeds... I used with lip gloss, light lipsticks and there is no difference - with or without. It is just a clear Vaseline stick. It is not very greasy, rather hard in texture. I regret buying it, money completely thrown away. It is like in this fable about king who paid fortune for invisible clothes ;))

This foundation is not bad. It has nice colors, blends quite easily into my skin and looks natural. However, when I put it on it does not make my skin look really better than without makeup... It does not perfect my skin like other foundations can (I much prefer Teint Idole Ultra). When I am using Photofenic, my skin looks ok, that's all. Another thing that I do not like about this foundation is lack of pump bottle - which makes foundation dry and clump at the top of the bottle, which is really annoying. Overall, nothing special. I won't buy it again, because so many better ones are available on the market.
