Love the colors but have trouble with the staying power. Also these are a pain to apply. The best way I suppose is with your finger, but then yuk. Wish an applicator was included in package. I would probably use more often because by lunchtime, I need a touchup!

So far my favorite BB
After trying BB creams from other manufacturer, i tried a 4 piece bullet sample, with 4 different colors, I found that the medium was the shade that matched me very well. (normally I am a light) i loved the mouse like feel of this treatment! I have tried other BB creams that are difficult to apply, and others that look like I am wearing chalk. It's a tad drying, on my chin, but I can't wait to use this in the warmer weather to see if it holds up well. I have not used any primer with this product and don't need to ! I have had more compliments after I started using this! My GF asked if I was pregnant, she said I have had a certain "glow"! (I am not pregnant) Another GF asked if I had lazer work done! I have not. So, I would definately recommend this product, if you have combitnation skin with large pore and have a tendency to get shiney in the afternoon. After using this one product, I have none of that. I do use a daytime, light moisturizer, underneath. And I am glad that it's made in the USA !

I am a sucker for luxurious bathing products. I love quality products that smell GREAT. I was given the opprotunuty to review this bar soap for TB. I am not a fan of bar soap. I was pleasantly surprised by the scent, it smells fresh but (thankfully) not like a salad (lol), but the scent does not linger. I didn't find that it lathered well when used alone. I guess I didn't get the massage factor, because it didn't really massage. I used it with my poof and then it lathered very well. I purpposely didn't use a afterbath moisturizer after using this product, and had no dry skin issues. So for me it was moisturizing enough. I was a little disappointing that the scent didn't last past the shower. i likely will not buy the bar , but if they sold it in body wash I might try it in the summer.

I liked the smell of this shampoo. It lathered, OK. After using the shampoo for 2 weeks, my hair started to feel very dry. So I took a one day break went back to my normal shampoo, and returned to the clairol brand, again my hair felt dry and it was hard to style, my style is medium length with long bangs, I felt that my hair was flat and became prone to static. I took another break for a day, returned to clairol shampoo, and same thing, hair was dry, sort of frizzy at my scalp line and flat. After a few more tries, I couldn't stand it any more, and threw it out.

BEST finishing powder
I have this in a different container, the one I have is more like traditional loose powder for regular make-up. I purchased after reading a magazine article about how to save $$$ on great make-up products. I did a internet search found it for about $7.00, so I took a chance and bought. Its as well as my Make-up Forver HD powder, but $40.00 cheaper! i use a sponge to apply then blend with a Kabuki brush, blend blend blend. It holds my make-up look for pretty much all day. It helps keep my shiney nose and chin look matte. I will definately check out the Ben Nye eye shadow colors next!

I received this product as a sample to review Yea! I LOVE the metal tip applicator, it just felt good using that to apply the product. I used a tiny amount near the corner of my eye, then spead the product with the tip. I used only a tiny bit each time I applied it, once in the AM and once before bed. While I haven't noticed much difference in my undereye circles, or with my occasional puffiness, I did like the way it mascaraded my "laugh lines". I didn't notice a particularily greasy afterfeel, and did not experience any stinging or cloudiness in my eyes. Overall the product is nice. I would like to try it in the dry winter months to see if it can stand up to my dry dkin.

I initially bought the lightest color, OMG I looked like a pasty ghost, so I returned it for the next darkest shade. It's a good match. However, it's very thick and very hard to apply, it doesn't blend well, so it you use too little and want to apply more, you can't blend it, if you use too much--- ugh! You basically have to rewash your face and start over. As noted by another viewer, it settles in every pore! I was going to try to blend it with some moisturizer and see what happens. Basically at this point, to acheive a good look, I need to apply 1) Primer 2) BB cream mixed with some moisturizer 3) mineral powder to set ... What's the point? Buyer beware.

I've been sampling this shampoo for about 3 weeks. When I first tried the shampoo I was really surprised at it's light airy feel. It lathered very well & rinsed out easily. I have already recommended this to my friends.

I use a tiny bit at night, and sometimes during the day because this cream feels so good. And, my complexion as gotten brighter, and clearer. I am not going to say that it looks "younger" but there is something that makes my face look GREAT! And it's non - greasy too!
