Natural Yet Full & Feathery
I have to say, I am so impressed by this mascara and I LOVE the look it gives. Lashes look feathery, long and full without looking fake. Often I find even the really great mascaras simply don't look natural and give you spiky, spidery lashes. This formula is the perfect balance between full luxe lashes and a natural look. I find the product also maintains throughout the day and doesn't flake. For the price, this is a great buy!

Great Colors & Long Lasting
I took a chance buying this because I usually find physician's formula products are hit or miss with me, but I'm so glad I did. I have the "baked spices" color palate which is a pink champagne color, a very unique yellow/ vory highlighter color and a metallic brown/bronze. The unique nature of the shades reminds me a bit of NARS eyeshadow colors but the discounted version. I didn't have much with using the 'wet' option of these shades. I found the color did not last when applied with water. However, using the shadows dry as they come I find they are very pigmented and yet not heavy looking on the lid. I'm most impressed by the colors themselves but overall I think this is a great shadow trio.

A Summer Must have for Face Protection
I received a few sample sized versions of this product a while back and have become obsessed with this formula. No matter the claims, most face sunblocks I've used still make me break out and apply way oilier than I'd like. This product does not make you break out, is a much more sheer, light formula and smells far superior to most sunscreens out there. After a day in the sun, my face still felt moisturized and fresh and did not have any of the pasty buildup I usually end up scrubbing off after using other face protection formulas. The travel sized are great as well for summer vacations, flights or a day at the beach. I strongly recommend trying this product.

Very Oily but Removes Makeup Well
First off, this cleanser is very proficient at removing makeup and its gentle enough to use around eyes to get that stubborn mascara and eyeliner residue that barely budges with other cleansers. That being said, I have oily skin and I have found it is making me break out. I've switched to using it only when serious make up removal needs to occur just to avoid the breakouts. It's incredibly creamy texture is very moisturizing but at the price of a breakout for acne-prone skin.

The Perfect Concealer
After trying nearly every under-eye concealer out there to disguise my dark circles, I went to a MAC store and one of the sales associates suggested this longwear formula. Not only do my eyes appear brighter, but this product seems to smooth the fine lines under the eye area that have been aging my skin as well as giving me that perpetually tired look. It really does last all day and the texture is so smooth and natural, it doesn't appear cakey at all. Plus, a little bit goes a long way with this product. I barely use a dime sized amount for both under-eye areas.. And it comes in such a large array of shades that you are bound to find one perfect for you. I often buy under-eye concealers that are too light for me and end up with that raccoon look in photos. I suggest going to a MAC counter or store to have one of their artists match you.

I read the reviews for this product on total beauty while looking for a new cleanser and thought I'd give it a try. I have acne prone skin but I also want to start addressing skin aging as well. This cleanser is really worth all the hype! After only a few days of use my skin has not broken out once and looks and feels more taut and youthful. My under-eye area looks especially more bright and the fine lines underneath seem to have been tightened. I'm so impressed with it and I think I've found my staple cleanser.

Beautiful Color but Not Strengthening
I purchased this product in a muted coral color and while the color is beautiful and applies very well. I don't see how the product strengthens nails. The color lasted just as long as Revlon's standard nail enamel and my nails looked and felt no different after continued use of this product. The line of colors this product comes in is very unique and I've been complimented several times on the coral shade I bought. I suggest taking a look at the colors but do not pay much attention to the 'brilliant strength' aspect of this product.

Weak Looking Lashes
First, when applying this mascara you feel as though you are applying nothing to your lashes. I don't know if there just isn't much formula but no matter how many coats you apply, your lashes don't look much different from when you started. At best, they are a bit more defined but in terms of length, volume and curl this did nothing for me.

Nice Balance Between Balm and Lipstick
Overall I liked this product and would buy it again. The color applies smoothly and leaves lips feeling soft, much like a balm. I have the light pink shade, #184 Merino Mauve and while it is not extremely pigmented the color is subtle and pleasant. I didn't find the color to last long but my lips felt smooth hours after application. I recommend this to those who prefer more sheer lip color.

Lasts Long But Hard to Apply & Disappointing Color
Beginning with the positives of this liner, it really does last all day long. Applying this at eight in the morning and coming home to see it looked exactly as it did right after its application I was certainly impressed. The bottle too seems to be lasting fairly long as well without drying out. Now for the negatives. The color is lacking to me. To me, black liquid liner is supposed to be shiny, patent leather black. This one is a very matte black that looks dull to me. In addition, the shape of the tip makes application difficult especially when it comes to making the lines on both eyes identical. When using this, I almost always can see a minor difference and I've never had a problem with liquid liner before so I can only assume its the product.
